About Mary's Naughty Whispers

Mary has a new blog. She's also Canadian, French-Canadian, and I read her reviews often. She challenged me to write a menage with four men, one woman. I can't write four men-there is always a part left out somehow. I didn't think I wanted to write three men. But I woke up done day with this sci fi romance in my head, a menage, and have hammered out just over 20K on the thing.

Can three dominant males make a feisty woman submissive? Particulary when she ended up with them hardly of her own accord. They are mighty persuasive, and bossy too. She doesn't have a lot of alternatives seeing as she was won in a poker game and her brother will go to prison if she doesn't comply...do you see her dilemma?

And I have to add in the planetary travel because I'm a Trekkie and you know...plus my fascination with BDSM. So it'll be harsh and readers are gonna be cross with me for not giving her a safe word etc. You can't please all the critics all of the time! 

There's also a prophecy being filled here. Too bad they didn't tell her about it right from the get go. Somebodies are going to get their asses kicked by one little subbie. My heroines always come out on top.

So, if I get it done and submitted, and accepted, Mary may yet see her challenge met. With three, not four men.

Later. Ally

RAGT 2013

I'm still recovering from RAGT 2013. What an amazing event put together by Lori Foster, Duffy Brown, Linda Keller, Joni Anderson and countless others. A nice blend of authors and readers and a showcase of talent on either side.

I met Lorelei James in the elevator - a true artist and a lovely woman with the best taste in boots.

I'm a voracious reader and met so many new authors to sample (their wares). I have to find some time to write too. Plan to polish my latest effort, an epic for me, seeing as I like novellas, but want to make it perfect. It feels right, you know?

Spent a couple of days with my girl, Lydia Michaels and her husband, such a treat, before heading to RAGT and that was the highlight, in truth. Altogether an amazing week. Met another author I've been corresponding with and we are critique buddies too. It's wonderful to meet people you've connected with on line.

Anyhow, off to bed to try and catch up on my sleep and get back to tackling life again. Ally
