Should you…? Pink Buttercream Frosting and Masked

So, let’s talk about Masked. And Pink Buttercream Frosting. And what the two have in common.

A while back, I wrote a book called Pink Buttercream Frosting. This was Bailey and Aidn’s book. It was lite BDSM. It had a secondary character in it by the name of Thor who wielded a mean flogger in a club called Abyss.

Thor had a secret thing for Bailey, but Thor also had an even deeper secret, one no one knew about, one I didn’t allude to at all.

Enter the little story, Masked.

I had originally written it as a free read. It has been re-worked into a slightly longer version of it’s original self. Still, it’s only 5000 words. Let me say that again. It. Is. Only. 5000. Words. It is very short. But it is very HOT. It is male/male spanking. It is a unique telling of Thor’s story. It is the first of 3 shorts, all of which will feature Thor and his new lover.

I am going to self-publish Masked. It will be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I have spent the week reading and formatting and learning content and adding content and studying how to do it right. I’ll be uploading it this weekend.

Now, I guess you’re wondering if you need to read Pink Buttercream Frosting first, huh? Well, no, but it might help. If you’ve already read it, you might want to give it another look through. I know one of my betas read Masked first then went and bought Pink Buttercream Frosting because she just had to know some things… And she was glad she did.

Either way, I hope you’re looking forward to Masked. I am. I love this little story…

Find Pink Buttercream Frosting at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Samhain Publishing.

A Little Story About A Story And A Cover

Once upon a time, there was a little bird named Samantha.

Now, Samantha was considered a wonderful and dear friend to Lissa and she knew how much Lissa liked to read male/male erotic romance.

Samantha, such a delightful friend suggested to Lissa that she should consider writing stories in this genre she loves so much. One thing, dear readers that you must understand about Samantha is the simple fact that she writes stories in this genre as well as the male/male/female genre and so coming from such an esteemed and successful writer, Lissa took Samantha’s suggestion to heart.

Over the course of a couple of months, some serious thought went into this idea. Lissa had considered writing male/male before, had even written a very short male/male free read, but had primarily focused on male/female contemporary. But Samantha had put a bug in Lissa’s ear to write male/male, to try her hand at it and Lissa couldn’t stop thinking about it, couldn’t stop wanting to try and so she took her very short free read out of the storage closet, added a few words, polished it up, sent it off to a few friends to read, including Samantha (whom Lissa hasn’t heard back from yet…) Thoughts so far though on Lissa’s effort are good and positive.

Armed with a little confidence and a lot of nerves, Lissa is aiming to self-publish this little collection of male/male spanking stories, 5K each.

The End.

Grins…

I even have a cover, created by the wonderful Valerie Tibbs. I am working on the second 5K story and will then move on to the third one. I’ll keep y’all informed as to a release for it.

A big thank you for the faith of author Samantha Kane. And a big thank you to those already self-published who are helping me along this new avenue: Melissa Schroeder, Eliza Gayle, Selena Blake, Bella Andre.

I have been working this week on Forever in Blue Jeans. It’s going slow. If any of you recall, about 3 months ago, the word count was very close to complete, however now if you look to the sidebar you’ll see it’s not anymore. I have deconstructed it. About 3-4 times. I didn’t like it. As I’d said before, I was trying to write a safe book, but that just wasn’t working for me. I ended up hating it. It was work and it wasn’t fun and it wasn’t a story that was working for me as the writer. I have talked endlessly to my dear friend Fallon Blake about it and I know she was ready to throttle me. I took a long break from it and when I came back, I had a new plot. I took the old plots apart, kept a few things, but tossed so much more and it’s being completely re-written now. I don’t think 35,000 is going to be the final word count. It’ll be longer, I’m fairly certain, but how much longer, I’m not sure. Just know that I’m working on it. Blue is going to get her story written if it kills me…

You’ll see I’m also slowly, very slowly working on a number of books over there on the sidebar. Earlier today another couple plots invaded my thoughts and are begging to be put down into words. It would appear that my muse has returned and brought reinforcements. YAY!

Drive Shaft is the second book to follow Stick Shift and it is about Alli, one of Lily’s friends.

Get Lost is a contemporary m/f about a woman that just loses it when pushed too far and retreats into the mountains.

Too Bad is Jackie and Mac’s story from Ink Spots.

Polar Shift is the second book in the Denali Heat Series, and this one is Patrick’s story.

Bound for Pleasure is a BDSM m/f that is the second book in a series y’all haven’t heard of yet from me. It follows one couple from a set-up reunion meeting through different stages and explorations in a relationship. More on that one later. It is a different kind of story for me and one that my mainstream readers may not care for due to the heavier BDSM content.

And as I said, there are others playing around in my head that I will get to as soon as I can, including a loose plan to write a longer story for Thor and Bobby from my free read, Masked.

I hope all of you are doing well and be sure to check in for Snippet Saturday tomorrow. Have a great weekend!
