Judith Came for a visit 10557342_109973692698962_5022618134297340756_n

T:  Good Morning Judith thanks for joining me this morning. I hope the hot tea is strong enough?

It’s wonderful, thank you!

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.

Okay, sounds like a plan!

T: Is it hard living in the Midwest and being in the Lifestyle?

Well, while things have opened up ‘a little’ since FSOG came out and made the thought of BDSM slightly more mainstream in general, individuals are still staying in their leather closet. It’s just a lot more socially conservative here and the consequences of losing your job, your family and in some cases, even the custody of your children is still very real.

T: You’ve been in the Lifestyle for about 16 yrs what got you interested in it?

To be honest, I’ve always been interested in the idea of restraint, even thought I may not have known exactly what it was that intrigued me.  In the mid to late 90’s, when I got on the Internet and discovered groups and IRC chatrooms with like-minded individuals, that’s when I found out there were people like me and that just amazed me…  and down the rabbit hole I went.

T: How often do you teach classes in BDSM?

When I was heavily involved in the groups here in Kansas, it was quite often.  I taught a general newbie class about the basics of BDSM and Playroom etiquette.  I also taught a class on fireplay, firecupping and also helped to arrange other people to teach classes for our local group as well.  As of 2015, me and my partner have been busy with other things in our lives and since we moved to a smaller community a few months ago, our participation has been less.

T: In 2015 you published an anthology but when did you start writing? Do we see all your previous work in Pretty When You Cry?

I’ve been writing since I was a child, it started seriously when I was a teenager and again when I was a college student, writing for the college newspaper.  All my erotica has been published somewhere, either in my releases or in other anthologies, like Riverdale Ave Press’ “The First Annual Geeky Kink Anthoogy”.

T: How often do you hear begging since you “particularly enjoy it”?

As often as I can. 😉

T: What do you consider body positive heroines?

Someone who regards their bodies with appreciation. Someone who has accepted themselves as they are. They don’t seek approval or wish to be anything else, but themselves.  And although, they may endeavor to better themselves with diet and exercise for health reasons, they do it because they love and want to take care of themselves.  Not out of some desperate need to be like somebody else.

T: What got you started doing masturbation Monday’s on Facebook? For those that don’t know what I’m talking about can you explain?

I wanted to do some blog hops to help promote my newest book, “Smart As A Whip”, so I got involved in Masturbation Monday, as well as WIP it up Wednesday and Saturday Spankings.  They basically all work the same.  An author signs up to be a part of that week’s hop and then writes a post for it.  They publish it on the appointed day and always have a link on the post that goes back to the central blog hop website, that way readers can ‘hop’ from blog to blog, reading with exciting things the authors want to share.

T: Who are some of the authors you follow religiously?

I love Lawrence Block, a very well-regarded mystery writer. I love Douglas Adams and re-read his books when I get a chance.  I also love erotica authors, Maren Smith, Alta Hensley and Tabitha Black.

T: If you could be in a room with anyone past or present and have a bit of kinky fun and general naughtiness who might be there with you?

Any subjects of Ruebenesque paintings would more than welcome to join me.

T: You read mysteries yet you write BDSM/erotica. Why did you go this route?

Maren Smith, in addition to being a wonderful spanking/erotica/romance writer, is also a local friend. I asked her if there were any publisher or audience for these erotic short stories, I had written.  She helped me a great deal and guided me to self publish on Amazon and from there the people at Blushing showed an interest in my work and off I went.

T: What music do you listen too? Does it help you write?

I listen to ALL kinds of music, I LOVE my Spotify!  Lol    I listen to rock, pop, classical, country and some rap.  Yesterday I listened to reggae versions of Radiohead and Pink Floyd songs, before that I’ve listened to jazz standards and before that, DJ Spooky.  I also love the Beatles AND the Monkees.   Sooo, I’m all over the place.. lol

T: What comes next?

Right now, I’m working on the next Kimber Cassidy mystery, as a follow-up to “Smart As A Whip” and I’ve also been doing some preliminary work on a YA mystery that I’m thinking of doing under my real name.

T: Well Judith 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.

Thank you so much! I really enjoyed being here. :)

Title: Gentlemen’s Agreement
Author: Ethan Radcliff
Genre: Adult, Erotic Romance
Published: July 15, 2016
Published by: Bitten Press LLC
Chad Henderson and Jon Lasiter were best friends. Their taste in women always caused a problem. They always went after the same woman. Cleo Davenport was older and sophisticated with a bevy of men at her fingertips. She was a high-priced Madame. Chad rejected the lifestyle and Jon embraced it. Both wanted the beautiful older woman in their bed. Could they reach an agreement that would suit all their needs?

 

Gentlemen’s Agreement Excerpt © Ethan Radcliff 2016

What now had caught his attention was the woman with Jon. He let his eyes wander seductively over her. He’d seen imposing women before, but her tall, lithe body and auburn hair took his breath away. As they neared, he honed in on her cat-like emerald green eyes. Son of a bitch, he thought, had his best friend, Jon Lasiter, been holding out on him? The decadent and devious thoughts running through his head caused warning bells to go off as the blood rushed to his cock.
He grinned broadly, catching Jon’s attention. It was obvious he irritated him because that small nervous tic in Jon’s right cheek was in full swing. Chad sat back in his chair and attempted to make eye contact with the beautiful woman, and when he did, their eyes locked.
Now it was Chad who became unnerved as the tip of her pink tongue ran along her full bottom lip. Chad swallowed slowly.
The corner of her mouth rose slightly as she smiled, or was that a smirk? She eyed him carefully from head to toe. He squirmed a bit in his chair from the intensity of her seemingly casual appraisal. Was she was sizing him up? More warning bells rang loudly. Son of a bitch, she was looking him over, perhaps sniffing out her next victim. The hairs on the back of his neck bristled and his cock twinged. The air around him was charged…was he intimidated? If so, this was a first.

Ethan Radcliff has been writing stories since he was a kid. He loves creating and tried his hand at art, but felt he wasn’t good enough. Through high school he wrote erotic stories, kept them in a notebook and let a few of his girlfriends read them. He then began writing poetry, which he kept to himself, because most of his poems were based on erotica. His brain never stopped. He became serious about writing erotic romance stories a few years ago and wondered how hard it would be to break through the barrier as a male erotic romance writer.

He delved into the world of BDSM and took a personal journey through the lifestyle, which aided in his writing.

He’d been a face book user for years. He never saw anything interesting until he began to see all the writers and then some poets posting their erotic prose. Men who were writing erotic romance began to crop up. He watched and then began to post a few poems here and there. The response was good and then better. He was being noticed.

He can see a picture and write a poem. He can see an attractive women and conger up a sexy scenario. The jiggle of a full ass or heavy breasts can get him going. His mind is always on an attractive face or body.

His thanks go out to Bitten Press LLC and the two lovely women who run it, for goading him on, telling him to go for it and he did.

His first short story is The Taming of Molly Jenkins. It’s hot. Is it based on personal experience? All he can answer is, perhaps. The next short story is The Wait, Britt’s Undoing. There will be more. He has a paranormal erotic romance series, Desires of Blood which at the moment is four books strong with three more already planned. Stay tuned for some historical, contemporary and fantasy erotica from him. Yes, and he will continue with some great stories including some BDSM adventures. He has two books of erotic poetry published; they have been an amazing success.

Follow Ethan Radcliff as he continues to entertain you. He can write any genre and intends to broaden his scope as an author in 2016.

His thanks go out to all his readers. Without them he’d still be writing notes in his composition notebook, waiting for that right moment. You made it happen for him.

Gentlemen’s Agreement Excerpt © Ethan Radcliff 2016

Chad had vowed he’d never visit any private club that catered to BDSM, and was tired of the idiots at work talking about being tied and spanked. What the fuck was happening -were women taking a few steps backward? Then the talk of riding crops, nipple clips, and fucking crazy kinky shit turned up in almost every conversation.He didn’t consider himself kinky or having any kinks. In his circle of friends there seemed to be a drift toward a curiosity for domination and pain. Chad had to be in control at all times, at least he thought he did until Cleo Davenport; the woman unhinged him. After speaking with Jon, he nonchalantly asked him how much a session with the elusive Domme cost him. Cleo came at a steep price, fifteen-hundred dollars a pop; he never thought he’d pay any female for her sexual favors. However, he had to admit that steep price fed his curiosity. Was she that good at what she practiced?

Straight sex was now referenced as vanilla sex. He preferred straight sex, or did he? Would Cleo show him more? Would he let her? Now to explain to his best friend that he wanted to fuck his Domme and then some.

11988656_497500237090854_2259037151850598252_nYep Faith’s here to chat

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

Definitely strong. I cannot start my morning without a few cups of strong Joe and a crossword puzzle to get the mind jumpstarted.

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: When did you meet the love of your life?

About 8 years ago, I was fishing (online) and the man took the bait. We danced around each other for a few months since he lived out of town, but once we finally met in person, that was all she wrote. Well, not technically, since I’m still writing, but you know what I mean.

T: Can you tell us about your four- legged best friends? Cats? Dogs? Breeds?

I am a huge animal lover. I currently have two dogs. BeBe is a chow and golden lab mix.  She looks like the Snuggle fabric softener bear. Charlie is a Jack Russell mixed with a Britney spaniel. She looks like a Jack Russell on steroids!

T: Have you ever gone back to the writing you did in high school to rewrite the stories or poems?

Unfortunately, no. Telling my age here, high school was over 30 years ago, so anything I wrote back then was on paper, and thus, lost in the many moves over the years.

T: How many stories come from your dreams?

Complete stories? Only 1. I do use snippets from my dreams and incorporate them into scenes in my books.

T: How crazy are the dreams you put to paper?

Honestly, I wish I could video tape my dreams so others could see the sh*t I see during the night. It’s like M. Night. Shamalamadingdong meets Stephen King…

T: What’s the craziest dream you’ve used?

The one where my best friend who was dressed in this killer black lacy sexy as f*ck dress tells me I have to sing to the empty swing next door. Even though I cannot sing in real life, in my dream I sing, and a ghost transforms into a little girl… There’s a lot more to it than that, and I’ve since changed up the story to being about a former marine seeing ghosts…

T: How many bikes have you owned?

When I was younger, I had two dirt bikes. Now I’m on my 2nd Harley.  “Ride the wind, never coming back until I touch the midnight sun”  Sorry, I sing Poison’s “Ride The Wind” when I think about hitting the road.

T: What authors are on your shelves?

Sherrilyn Kenyon,  Karen Marie Moning, Janet Evanovich, Cassandra Clare. There are a slew of others that I own a few of their books, but with these, I have every book they’ve put out so far. Most of them are hardbacks.

T: Do you play trivia at home or out? Who plays with you?

I play at our local bar/restaurant hangout. It’s called Buzztime, and it’s nationwide.  You don’t win prizes, it’s more for bragging rights than anything. The man helps me with answers when it’s something like sports. I have a few friends who are competitive, but then we help each other with the answers, because we’re nice like that.

T: Does all your writing have a paranormal element?

No. My first book was a contemporary little number. I also have a MM series, The Music Within.

T: Do you use any of your favorite places in the city in your novels?

Absolutely. I use Nashville in the MM series.  The Stone Society is set in post-apocalyptic Atlanta, so I can embellish the details a little. I am a Georgia girl at heart.

T: How long does it take you to write a novel?

The shortest time has been 2 weeks. The words had been begging to be written, and they just flowed. The longest was just over a month. That’s the easy part. It’s the editing that takes forever.

T: What comes next?

Sixx, Book 7 in the Stone Society releases on July 7.  Finding Me, Book 3 in The Music Within series is tentatively scheduled for the end of August, the first of September. I’m working on the Ghost story book as well, but it’s a work in progress.

T: Well Faith 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.

Ha!  Thanks for having me. I truly appreciate it…

A Note from Laura Kaye:

Dear Readers,

I’m so excited to share my new cover art for Bound to Submit with you today! From the moment I met Detective Kyler Vance in the Hard Ink series, I was intrigued. And from the second I knew Kyler was a Dom in an exclusive club named Blasphemy, I knew I had to learn more. That was the moment the Blasphemy series was born, and now I’m just thrilled at how the whole thing is taking shape – beginning with Bound to Submit, which promises to be scorchingly hot and achingly emotional. I hope you’ll grab your copy. In the meantime, enjoy this amazing cover! And if you haven’t already, get caught up with Hard to Serve, the book that introduces it all!

Sincerely,

Laura Kaye

NICUNurse’s review of Searching for Harmony by Kelly Elliott

Searching for Harmony banner

Review 

Searching for Harmony teaser 3I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

So, to begin, I should divulge that I’ve been reading this author’s books from her very first book, “Wanted.”  And while I enjoyed the story lines in the first couple of books, I felt that her character development was a little lacking and that the amount of profanity was excessive.  With that said… I kept reading and she just kept improving!  And she did not disappoint with this newest release. This is truly a romance novel so if you’re looking for some suspense, it’s not really here.  Mrs. Elliot delves into a very emotional topic in this novel.

As a wife and a mother, it’s truly my biggest fear. So I was a bit nervous to read the story.  While there are some intense emotional scenes and some tears were shed, I felt she approached this in a caring, yet realistic, way.  I know this author is also a wife and mother so I can only imagine how difficult this story was to tell. Grief is intensely personal and there is no right or wrong.  If you don’t get this, you might get upset at how the main character handles it, but I would remind you that this is a work of fiction and this author’s story to tell. There was a lot more depth to characters in this book and I can honestly say I’ve enjoyed watching her grow and develop as an author.

Harmony starts off a strong character and despite the circumstances, she stays strong.Searching for Harmony teaser 5 Even when she doesn’t think she’s being strong. Preston is just the right mix of strong and understanding to come along beside her and stand with her, even when she doesn’t think she can handle their relationship.

The story had my attention from the beginning and kept my attention all the way to the end. I love a happily ever after so I was happy to see this end in such a way that you can see that for the main characters.

Overall I’d give this 4.5 stars.  (I rarely give 5 stars because even established, long time best-selling authors improve on their works as they continue to publish.)

Searching for Harmony teaser 6

Searching for Harmony_ElliottFrom New York Times bestselling author Kelly Elliott comes the gut-wrenching story of a love that transcends all odds—and transforms the deepest pain into the brightest hope.

Firefighter and first responder Preston Ward thought he had grown immune to the job’s emotional burns. But when he goes out on a particularly tragic call, he realizes that some scenes are too devastating to forget. And yet, if it weren’t for that terrible night, he never would have met the woman who makes him want to risk his heart.

More than once, Harmony Banks has watched her perfectly ordered world torn apart by fate. Now she’s finding out that what she lost wasn’t as perfect as she thought—and it’s tearing her apart. The only thing that keeps her going is the kindness of a stranger: the firefighter who saved her life the night everything Searching for Harmony teaser 2changed.

Preston isn’t like the men who have come before. For one thing, he’s far more genuine. And the love Harmony feels growing between them is almost too intense for her wounded soul. But if she and Preston can push past heartbreak, they’ll find that something incredible awaits in each other’s arms.

Advance praise for Searching for Harmony

“Searching for Harmony is a heartwarming story of a woman who suffers an unthinkable tragedy—and finds an unimaginable love. It’s a real charmer!”—USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott

Searching for Harmony teaser 1EXCERPT 1:

Preston pulled my chair out for me as we sat down. We talked the entire time we ate. He told me about growing up in Boston before his father retired to the country. He had two brothers and a sister. His favorite place to be was at his parents’ country house or on the ocean sailing.

I decided to keep the conversation on Preston and he didn’t seem to mind.

Lori walked over and placed the Nutella and Bananas down in front of us.

“Dig in,” Preston said with a smile.

Chewing on my bottom lip, I asked, “Um . . . is Nutella good?”Searching for Harmony teaser 4

Preston’s mouth dropped open as he stared at me.

“You’ve never had Nutella? Like, ever?”

Pressing my lips together so I didn’t giggle, I shook my head.

Preston leaned back in his chair and put his hand over his heart. “I’ve so much to teach you. So much.”

Swallowing hard, I felt my face flush.

Oh, the things I wanted Preston to teach me.
