Review:

I really hate to say this, but I tried to read the Collectors’ Society by Heather Lyons and could only get half way through the first book.  I know many of you will read this review and think at this point, this one’s off my list, but I beg of you to finish the review.  Just because a book isn’t right for one person doesn’t make it wrong for all readers.  So here is my bias and why I lost interest.

It seems to be a great story line.  In it, it is believed that all great novels represent an alternate timeline from the one they were written in.  In these alternate timelines, the book characters are real.  When timelines or books, as we would call them, start to disappear a secret society of characters is put together to figure out what is causing these timelines to disappear and figure out how to stop the end of classic literature as we know it.  All in all, should be a great story.  But she started with Alice from “Alice in Wonderland” as the lead character and this is where I get lost.   (Like how I did that, I get lost, just like Alice got lost in Wonderland.)  I didn’t really ever like Alice in Wonderland and contrary to my reading habits, I haven’t read all that many of the classics.  And I certainly haven’t read them twice.  Collectors’ Society is full of references to classic well loved novels that just don’t spark my imagination.

So for those two reasons, I wasn’t able to get past book one.  Now to say this is the same for everyone, would really be making me “God Like.”  I know I’m good, but not the great.  There are lots of other readers in the world, and I’m sure many of you should and hopefully will pick up this novel and find it engaging and give it rave reviews.

Now you know my bias, I’m not saying don’t read this one, I’m just telling you the person I think that would like this novel is someone who loves classic fiction, wants to know the characters better, likes space time travel, and to start off with, can’t get enough of Alice in Wonderland.  So again I say “Happy Reading.”

Morning Coffee with Daily Hollow

received_1727066297530573Coffee with Daily

T:  Good Morning Daily thanks for joining me this morning. I hope the coffee is strong enough?

T: I promise for this set of questions I’m going to keep things fun and light (well light for me) so let’s get started.

T: How much research do you do before writing a story?

Depends on the story. For “A Night of Firsts” I had to do quite a bit of research. For instance, I had to research different types of police vests. I also had to ask a friend about some of the areas in Jamaica since that’s where my female lead is from. Also in Leslie’s Dilemma, I had to do some research on a the 1970s style Trans Ams, since I didn’t know what that thingy that popped up from the hood was called (it’s a shaker btw)

T: How did you come up with Leslie’s Dilemma?

Through a couple flash fiction (story under 200 words) pieces I wrote about a woman (Leslie) who takes men home for sex, then kicks them to the curb. One day I wondered what would happen if she woke up next to a woman after a night of partying.

T: What made you write about a military couple?

I was going through NMPS in Norfolk prior to a deployment and saw a beautiful black woman working at the front desk of the Navy Inn and Suites (where I was staying at the time) and the story kinda took off from there.

T: Rape is one of those issues that many have a problem reading, what made you want to explore a near rape in Eve’s Daisy?

Near” is the operative word. I feel folks don’t mind if the victim is successful in escaping such a terrible situation. The only regret I have is that the two aggressors didn’t get what they had coming to them. Which leads me to another regret – Eve’s Daisy should have been at least 20k words longer, then those lunkheads would have got what they deserved😉

T: How do you juggle, writing, family and work?

It’s not easy. Especially since I do a lot of beta reading in between. I’ve got several projects going on at once; a romantic comedy about a woman who sleeps with her best friend’s ex, then falls in love with him, and a novel about a coven of witches.

T: How many anthologies have you been a part of?

To this date two: Tie Me Up and My Kinky Valentine, though the later was pulled by the publisher because it wasn’t generating enough sales. I’m about to sign a contract with Rose Caraway for her antho For the Men: and Women Who Love Them.

T: Do you ever add any part of your day to day life in your writing?

Sometimes. In Leslie’s Dilemma, Stanley once lost a girlfriend to another woman. That happened to me once. Also, in Eve’s Daisy, the pond they swam in is actually a real pond where I grew up. It was a feeder to the small brook I fished in as a kid. Also, I try to corporate the military, animals, and sports in most of my stories.

T: You have a few animals that live with you. What types of dogs do you have? Why two rats? What are the cats names?

I have a 14 yr old Rottweiler/Golden Retriever mix, a Beagle/Dauchund (sp?) mix, and a min pin. The rats are my wife and son’s doing. They love those suckers. Our male cat’s name is Spike, and the two females are Precious and Cookie, who get more complaints from the neighbors than my child LOL.

T: What intrigues you about erotic romance? Why do you write it over say romance or another genre?

My background is actually in article writing. I used to write for a local newspaper back in the day, have written for magazines, as well as online sites such as Break Studios and for Orbitz. One day I wanted to get back into fiction (I wrote a lot of fiction in college) and did a Google search for writing contests. Literotica was the first to pop up. Of course I started reading the stories and was like “I can write this.” Turns out it’s much harder than I thought. I joined an erotic writing group (ERWA) and my first story didn’t receive the best feedback (someone told me they didn’t make it past the first paragraph). However, my second story fared much better, and is the one that’s going to be a part of Rose’s antho.

T: What does your wife think about the craziness of what comes with writing and more specifically writing erotica?

She hates it. Wants me to go back to writing horror, which is what I wrote in college.

T: Have you always lived in the Carolina’s?

No, I grew up in Vermont.

T: What comes next?

Not sure. Like I said, I have a ton of projects, including a sequel to One Night in Charlotte.

T: Well Daily that’s all I have for you today? Until next time thanks again for joining me, now get back to work and write your next book.

From the time Sharon Johnson learned to write, she had one dream, to become a writer and author. Writing has always been the one constant through every moment, both good and bad, in her life. She started with basic Haiku and rhyming poems; then later, she started writing simple one to two page stories. She’s always kept journals documenting her life and those of her children. Through every poem, story and journaled event, she never stopped looking for what she calls her ‘Charmed’ book. Year after year the book never came, until the summer of 2013, when a two to three page idea max, turned into ten then twenty pages and kept growing from there. It became clear within a very short time, her characters had much more to say and their story was far from over. And that’s how ‘The Chat Room’ was born. Eighteen months and a lifetime later, her dream finally became a reality in August 2015. There’s a saying she’s created as a part of her daily mantra; “Never stop looking for your happy ending, because your story isn’t finished yet…

Ellie Profile PicEllie Masters

Ellie Masters has been exploring the worlds of romance, dark erotica, science fiction, and fantasy by reading and writing the stories she likes to read. When not writing, Ellie can be found outside, where her passion for all things outdoor reigns supreme: off­ roading, ATV-ing, scuba diving, hiking, and breathing fresh air, are just a few of her favorite pursuits.

Wife, lover, and mother are her most treasured roles, but Ellie has played many parts: counter-girl at McDonalds, a research assistant in a Nanofabrication facility, rocket scientist, physician, and now a published author with the release of her debut novel Changing Roles. Ellie is adding to her publications, HEART’S INSANITY: an Angel Fire Rock Romance coming August 2016.

Now, Ellie is proud to call herself a Southern transplant, learning to say y’all and ‘bless her heart’ with the best of them. She lives with her beloved husband, two children who refuse to flee the nest, and four fur-­babies; three cats who rule the household, and a dog who wants nothing other than for the cats to be his friends. The cats have a different opinion regarding this matter.

Ellie’s favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch, laptop in place, watching a fire, drinking a good wine, and bringing forth all the characters from her mind to the page and hopefully into the hearts of her readers.

Elias Raven was born and raised in Los Angeles. He’s an avid reader with a lifelong passion for writing. He’s a storyteller, a poet and a talented musician with an amazing voice. Oh, and let’s not forget an amazing cook!

As a young boy he spent many summers reading classics such as “The Adventures of Sherlock Homes” and “The White Company” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His creativity was constantly being pushed as he learned more and more about the world around him. His taste in literature spanned from classics to science fiction/fantasy. He expanded his taste into classical poetry devouring everything from William Blake to Milton, Dante, Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, T.S. Elliot, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Khalil Gibran, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, Paul Verlaine, Walt Whitman, Alan Ginsburg, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Carl Sandburg, Dylan Thomas, and Jim Morrison. These inspirations and his sheer love for reading had him take pen to paper around the age of 20.

Did I mention he’s a Musician? …You can often find him playing his guitars (both electric and acoustic) and keyboards and singing (4 octave ranges) in his home studio. He’s a classically trained music aficionado -trained early on by Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Hayden, Liszt, as well as Big Band, Jazz and Rag Time. Spending time with his father at the Los Angeles Philharmonic; experiencing his first orchestra concert at the age of 9.

Elias the Gourmet Cook…Oh My!…His Japanese mother and grandmother trained him very well in fine culinary skills both in cooking and food appreciation from all over the world such as Italian, Indian, Moroccan, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Hawaiian, Pilipino, Greek, and Polish.

When Elias is not reading, writing, composing music or cooking…he can be found listening to music, playing games, hanging out with his kids.  He enjoys going to concerts, going on culinary adventures, sightseeing, spending the day at the beach or in the mountains…just doing something adventurous!

Recently, Elias became inspired by Gina Whitney, Scott Hildreth, R.K.Lilley & Mia Sheridan for their Adult Erotic/Romance/BDSM writings. Cain ~ Sins of the Father is an epic romance with hot passion, love and vengeance. It’s a fusion of the traditional bible story, a battle between two brothers with wicked twists and turns bringing us forward to the present day.

From Elias…The fans are everything to me. They drive me to be even more creative. Their insight, feedback, the give and take are all what I live for. I am very people oriented and outgoing – I love interacting with the people reading my work. I love pulling the reader into what I’m seeing and feeling. I love to envelop the person reading my book into a sensory wonderland as the words stimulate the senses and thought processes and totally pull them into my story and the world I am painting so broadly before them.

He’s decided to share his passions with the world – Enjoy the journey with Elias Raven!

Excerpt

“Thanks.” There it was again, that look that threatened to curl her toes. He reached out and took the washcloth from her and tossed it onto the nightstand. “I’m going to kiss you now.”

She should object, move away, do something other than rest her hands on the top of his thighs and tilt her head up. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Didn’t the last few years teach you anything? Apparently not, because she wanted Cillian to kiss her again, and she wanted him to kiss her now.

4Truth be told, she wanted him to do a whole lot more than that.

Olivia licked her lips. “Okay.”

His lips quirked up at the edges. “I can see I’m blowing your socks off. Let’s see if I can do better.” He cupped her face with one hand and then his mouth was on hers, soft and teasing, testing—nothing like the forceful kiss that started everything last night. She opened for him immediately, driven by the lightning dancing just beneath her skin. She wished she could blame it on being skin-starved, but the truth was that this man was doing more with a near-innocent kiss than Sergei had ever done with his entire body and hours at his disposal. I am in so much trouble.

Then Cillian’s tongue stroked hers and she was lost. She gripped his thighs as he explored her mouth, giving herself permission to do some exploring of her own. He was all lean muscle, as if he’d been melted down and stuck in a forge, only to come out new. She ran her hands up his legs, stopping just short of his hips.

He took it from there. He ran his fingers through her hair and down her back, inching her closer until there was nothing more than a breath of distance between them. It would have been so damn easy to lean forward and touch him, pressing her body against his, but the separation was almost unbearably erotic. She shivered again, 2 (1)tilting her head back to give him better access.

She’d never been kissed like this, like she was something to be savored…valued. Like he had all the time in the world and he’d still never get enough.

Common sense tried to rear up and remind her that it was a goddamn kiss, not a lifetime commitment, but then his thumb feathered across the underside of her breast, and all rational reasoning flew right out the window.

He rested his forehead against hers, and groaned. “You’re making it hard to be good, sweetheart.”

Amazon

Synopsis:

Josiah Bailey is a successful attorney married to Molly, a physician specializing in sports medicine. But that’s what they do to earn their livings, but not quite what they are in deeper places within. Josiah has found a rather unique niche for himself and his interests in BDSM. He works as a beadle, paid to punish and train slaves belonging to others, whose owners have difficulty doing so. He also owns an old horse farm, where he taps into the competitive spirit of other doms and masters with rickshaw races held on occasion. But an unrelated chain of events meet and intertwine, and in time he finds himself owner of several amazing women, a flurry of remarkable and devoted slaves, loving him and loving being under his power.

Excerpt:

“Jesus … I’ve been with some skilled men in the sack, but you … holy crap,” she managed to say as she slid up his body and curled up into his arms. “Thank you, Master. I needed this. I know this might sound a bit fucked up, but … I’m starting to love you, Sir. Please be vicious with me tomorrow. I’m going to need that.”

“How vicious are you begging me to be?” Josiah asked.

“I want what you’ve done so far to seem like a kiss from my kindly old grandma back in Kent,” Lucretia said. “I … please, Master. It’s not the first time for me. I need it.”

Conflict arises, deep and profound, as the four become seven, and Josiah is left having to make a map into their future, to end the conflicts and bind them as family. Will his love and lashes succeed in bonding the seven into one, or are the divisions simply too deep for the damage to be undone?

Excerpt: 

“I’m the one who feels blessed,” Darla said. “If it wasn’t for him … and my sisters … I think I’d have just leapt from a skyscraper Monday. I had nothing left, and they gave me themselves, their love, their lashes, their trust.

Excerpt:

“Time to claim my right,” he said, and kissed her while she moaned and writhed. He took his time, touching and caressing, nibbling and kissing, as she trembled and broke out in goosebumps.

“Jesus, take me,” she gasped. “Take me, I’m yours, Master.”

“All in good time,” Josiah said as he nibbled at her labia, and then found her clitoris and delivered a sweet attack that sent her trembling anew before she bucked and thrashed, and screeched through an intense cum that left a huge wet spot. And then it was time as he slid into her, kissing her again, their tongues dancing with one another as he filled her with his erection and she gasped, crying out as her hymen was pierced, and almost immediately climaxing again, helpless under the far larger man as she gasped and panted, trying to assemble her mind. Josiah thrust slowly and gently in and out of her as she quivered, begging him for his seed. She didn’t have to wait long before her tight walls overcame him, and he growled as he erupted into her, bringing on yet another climax from the utterly wrung-out slave before he drew out of her and stroked her hair while her mind was in a whirl.

“Oh dear God,” she managed to say as he kept stroking her hair, and then she smiled at him. “You own me entirely if you’ll have me, Master. Jesus, that was … you’re incredible, Sir.”

“Well, thank you, little lady,” Josiah drawled.

Josiah’s Love and Justice Volume IV: Bound In Love Synopsis:

The saga continues as a new client arrives to be trained and kept in custody as her master travels overseas on a work assignment where he cannot take her. Her conduct opens up old wounds inside Becky, and a counselor’s presence only makes things worse, but the family rallies around to try to heal those wounds once and for all. Meanwhile, Anita’s family shocks her with their knowledge of her lifestyle and a dose of tough love. A profoundly changed Molly strives to make amends to people she wronged not long ago, and in this, blunders onto help for Becky.

As a way of repayment, the slaves all contribute to a special gift for Josiah, a gift of their love for him and understanding of an important part of his past. Along the way, bonds tighten among the family, as master and slaves all grow together…

Excerpt:

“I always understood better the clients coming to me for punishment for real wrongs,” Lucretia said.  “And my conscience doesn’t bother me one bit here for the things I’ve done with my brothers and sisters.  We’re here by consent, admit we deserve it, and not only accept but embrace the consequences of misconduct.  But I understand guilty feelings don’t listen to exonerating logic, Simon.  Don’t decide right now.  Take time to think this through.  If you want me to take you to my dungeon to help you get rid of this, I’m willing, and I bet Master would understand.  If you’d rather the other slaves don’t know, then it’ll be only for you and me to know.  It can be confusing to slaves seeing a master taking punishment.  When I was with Tony, I went to another dominatrix I knew for sessions, and never breathed a word of it to him until that day we broke up.  He wouldn’t have understood.  Anyway, kick it around, and if you feel that’s what’ll get you through this, I’m willing.”  She kissed him gently and smiled.  “In case you haven’t figured this out, you big dummy, we’re all very fond of you.  If Josiah is the father of this family, I think of you and Anita as a favored uncle and cousin.  Shall we go back to the cabin?”

“Yeah … I want to check in on Anita,” Simon said.  “And I guess I owe a tall apology to everyone for the fool I made of myself over there.”

“No, you really don’t,” Lucretia said.  “Get your cracker ass in the truck and let’s head back.  I’m hungry.”

Legacy 

Amazon

Synopsis:

Jim Ford is a widower, turning to work where he used to turn to his wife and slave Colleen.  Until one day his old friend Corbin calls and, with his wife and slave Belinda, charges into his life.  The two need a huge favor from Jim, and in it, a huge gift for Jim …

Excerpt:

An hour later, in his bed, Jim had her again, this time slower, far more lovemaking than the raw animal sex they’d enjoyed upstairs in the dungeon. He slid into her slowly, taking his time, stopping when he got close to his climax, feeling her tightness grasping him, groaning at their shared passion, before she climaxed twice and he finally pushed through hard and fast, erupting deeply into her as they both shuddered at the intensity. They kissed one another and fell to sleep in an agreeable tangle of naked flesh.

Blind Date 

Amazon

Synopsis:

Audrey works with Jack’s brother and Jack works with Audrey’s best friend. A matchmaking campaign is launched and the two agree to meet for a blind date, lunch at Mabel’s Tables followed by a baseball game. The date is going wonderfully until a thoughtless comment from Audrey derails it, and Jack calls things off. Two hours later, after an aimless drive to cool his annoyance, he arrives home. Moments later, his doorbell rings. It’s Audrey, bearing a ready apology and ready to pay the price for her thoughtless words …

Excerpt:

“Sir, I would ask to keep the cuffs,” Audrey said. “But … another consideration, Sir?”

“Ask,” Jack said.

“Kiss me, please,” Audrey whimpered. “Show me a taste of what could be mine if I prove myself to you up there.” Jack stepped to her, twisted her hair in his hand and tipped her head back, and then plundered her with a deep and searching kiss, pressing his erection against her belly, through the rough denim of his jeans. The kiss broke and Audrey gasped.

“Oh God … take me, I’m yours,” she moaned. “Holy smokes!

Punishment Punishment

Amazon

Synopsis:

Evelyn and Mark are a dominant and submissive living far from one another, able to see one another a few times yearly around their careers. Evelyn misbehaves and Mark sends her to a dominatrix for punishment, but Mark has a special surprise in store for his Evelyn …

Excerpt:

Wordlessly, Evelyn obeyed, placing herself in position to be restrained, and in a moment, leather cuffs were on her ankles, tightly snubbed to rings in place, and a moment later, similar cuffs bound her wrists, and then straps bound her above and below each knee, and above and below each elbow. Finally, a long strap went around her lower back, cinching her tightly to the belly board of the bench. Evelyn was so restrained, she could do little more than blinking her eyes. A curtain was drawn and wall-mounted television revealed, and then it came on and Evelyn saw Mark on the screen, sitting at a table with a bottle of Skyy vodka in front of him.

Taming Taming

Amazon

Synopsis:

Ed has known the beautiful Allison virtually his entire life. But Ed went on to become an adult, and Allison, once his babysitter, never quite grew up. Allison’s immaturity finds her waking Ed with a 3:00 AM phone call and Ed reading her the riot act, one that resonates with her and makes her realize she needs to grow up. But she knows she needs Ed’s help in her taming and training …

Excerpt:

“I bet it’s going to love going into your ass,” I told her, and she whimpered anew, but held her tongue. I stood behind her and did some fast calculations, deciding her ass needed to be a bit higher. “Don’t go anywhere,” I said, and stepped down to the garage, where I got a length of 4×6 lumber and carried it up to the dungeon, where I put it under the rear legs of the bench, raising her ass a bit, and pleased with the height as she shivered, knowing what was coming.

Evolution Evolution

Amazon

Synopsis:

My name is Vince Tucker. I met Nicki Stuart as a customer at the gas station where she works. I always liked to flirt a bit with her, until one morning a flirtation led to a clumsy accident, which led to a test balloon, which led to a date that led to … well, read and see …

Excerpt:

I fetched the paddle I’d made for her, and gave an experimental smack to her ass, not particularly hard, but enough to sting, and Nicki moaned. “Harder, please, Sir,” she begged. I obliged, hitting her harder, a blow of about half-strength, and she growled like a wildcat needing her tom to breed her. I waited a few seconds and smacked her again, slightly harder, watching her lovely ass take on a pink flush as she writhed what little her bonds would allow. She never asked mercy, only moaned a bit louder until she started weeping around the thirteenth smack of the paddle, wracked with sobs by the twentieth. I stopped at thirty, eyeing her heated red ass, purple in a few little places, and decided that was enough. Besides, I was so horny I ached from it, and stepped from my shoes and pants.

From the time Sharon Johnson learned to write, she had one dream, to become a writer and author. Writing has always been the one constant through every moment, both good and bad, in her life. She started with basic Haiku and rhyming poems; then later, she started writing simple one to two page stories. She’s always kept journals documenting her life and those of her children. Through every poem, story and journaled event, she never stopped looking for what she calls her ‘Charmed’ book. Year after year the book never came, until the summer of 2013, when a two to three page idea max, turned into ten then twenty pages and kept growing from there. It became clear within a very short time, her characters had much more to say and their story was far from over. And that’s how ‘The Chat Room’ was born. Eighteen months and a lifetime later, her dream finally became a reality in August 2015. There’s a saying she’s created as a part of her daily mantra; “Never stop looking for your happy ending, because your story isn’t finished yet…
Just a few fun facts…

She never tires of intellectual stimulation in whatever form it comes. She’s never met a stranger she didn’t like or couldn’t crack up in the first ten minutes after they meet. She loves to read anything romantic or erotica. She also writes poetry, as well as short stories and has a following on Facebook that grows weekly. She has the heart of a twelve year and considers grown-ups boring and not much fun lol. She prides herself in being able to sit Indian style and touch her face to the floor and she loves NFL football. There’s never been a pizza she didn’t love or a piece of chocolate she’d ever say no to. And most importantly; she never forgets how blessed she is and how important it is to tell those in her life how much they mean to her.

Elias Raven 10711189_217042408645375_1847165269_n

Elias Raven was born and raised in Los Angeles. He’s an avid reader with a lifelong passion for writing. He’s a storyteller, a poet and a talented musician with an amazing voice. Oh, and let’s not forget an amazing cook!

As a young boy he spent many summers reading classics such as “The Adventures of Sherlock Homes” and “The White Company” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His creativity was constantly being pushed as he learned more and more about the world around him. His taste in literature spanned from classics to science fiction/fantasy. He expanded his taste into classical poetry devouring everything from William Blake to Milton, Dante, Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, T.S. Elliot, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Khalil Gibran, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, Paul Verlaine, Walt Whitman, Alan Ginsburg, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Carl Sandburg, Dylan Thomas, and Jim Morrison. These inspirations and his sheer love for reading had him take pen to paper around the age of 20.

Did I mention he’s a Musician? …You can often find him playing his guitars (both electric and acoustic) and keyboards and singing (4 octave ranges) in his home studio. He’s a classically trained music aficionado -trained early on by Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Hayden, Liszt, as well as Big Band, Jazz and Rag Time. Spending time with his father at the Los Angeles Philharmonic; experiencing his first orchestra concert at the age of 9.

Elias the Gourmet Cook…Oh My!…His Japanese mother and grandmother trained him very well in fine culinary skills both in cooking and food appreciation from all over the world such as Italian, Indian, Moroccan, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Hawaiian, Pilipino, Greek, and Polish.

When Elias is not reading, writing, composing music or cooking…he can be found listening to music, playing games, hanging out with his kids.  He enjoys going to concerts, going on culinary adventures, sightseeing, spending the day at the beach or in the mountains…just doing something adventurous!
