Bethany Leigh stops by with her new spanking short stories.

I had a chance to read Bethany Leigh’s short stories, from A Cure for all Ills,  and was impressed. They were quite entertaining- especially the time travelling one 😉 – and they were the perfect length for a quick night time read. 🙂 You can see my review here.

 

Excerpt

“It’s our anniversary,” I whispered. “We should be having a romantic day together…”

“And we would have been, if you hadn’t spoilt it.”

I flared up again, blinking back my tears. “If I hadn’t spoilt it? I got you a present and all you could be bothered to do was go out and –”

He gripped me more firmly. “As I said, you have two choices. Walk back or be carried. What’s it to be?”

While I hated the idea of making it easy for him, I couldn’t bear the thought of being carried up the road. So I walked beside him, inwardly quaking. I could still feel the throb of the last spanking, and didn’t want another on top of it.

He unlocked the front door and pointed me inside. This time he did pick me up, carrying me through to the bedroom. And my stomach lurched. For there, on the bed, lay a belt.

Author Q and As

Tell me about your new release

It’s a collection of short stories and is titled A Cure for All Ills. Whereas my first book, Freedom, was an alt-history and my second, At Dead of Night, was a detective story, A Cure for All Ills is a collection of honest-to-goodness domestic discipline stories. One of the stories features a spanko time-traveller from the future making illicit trips back to 1680s London to track down the legendary spanker Whipping Tom, but all the others are contemporary, featuring women in DD relationships and whose partners see – or come to see – spanking as ‘a cure for all ills’.

Which was your favourite story in the collection to write and why?

I have two joint favourites. ‘A Cure for All Ills’ was the very first DD story I ever wrote, based on my experiences with an eating disorder and my longing for a guy to come along and help me recover with some tough love. The other is ‘Anniversary Blues’ because I love the dynamic between the two characters. Sarah is so hot-headed and Dan is such a tough nut with a soft centre. I also love the way he goes about spanking her -– he picks her up and bends her over the bed or his knee. No ordering her across his knee – she’d never submit!

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Yes, writing novels! I love writing short stories, but really struggle with longer-length fiction. I know most authors look at their word count and groan, “Oh no, I’m 20,000 words over my word limit.” Whereas I look at mine and groan, “Surely I’ve written more than 10,000 words?” And when I look at those 10,000 words I can usually spot ways of culling words not adding them.

Thanks for stopping by! ❤

Bethany Leigh visits with her brand spanking new detective story!

***Red herrings meet red bottoms in this tale of detecting, discipline and life decisions. ***

Okay, this tagline had me bouncing up and down waiting for this to go live. And here it is! I am so excited about this new story from Bethany Leigh. I just got my copy, and cannot wait to read it. 🙂

Excerpt

Back at her flat, she made sure she looked good before heading off to Leicester Square. She put on new jeans and a strappy top, brushed her hair thoroughly and applied make-up and perfume. Then she caught the bus to the train station. It was better to use public transport tonight as she definitely needed a fortifying glass of cider if she was going to have a conversation with Noel. Plus, if he asked her back to his place, it would be easier just to go back with him without her car…

Stop it, she told herself. Getting back with Noel would mean telling him that that spanking had been okay. And it hadn’t been. Even if she had probably deserved it – no, she corrected herself, she’d probably totally deserved it – it wasn’t his place to dish out punishment. Spanking was all very well in the bedroom – it was a turn-on and led to great sex – but for real punishment? No. Just no. Being a successful PI meant taking risks. Sure, other people might consider her decisions dangerous and foolhardy, but for her, such actions might be career enhancing. Noel, as a journalist, should have understood that. If he didn’t and if he wanted to get back with her, then she was going to make that very clear to him.

Sales Blurb:

After eight years of working as a PI, Lucy Ogilvy finally has a murder mystery to investigate. Who did kill Marilyn Carter, a convicted murderer who is now a prominent Christian evangelist?

Lucy’s investigations bring her back in contact with her ex-boyfriend Noel. They’d like to get back together – but he insists on a domestic discipline relationship, and forbids her to take unnecessary risks for work.

Can Lucy accept Noel’s discipline? And how do you investigate a murder without taking a few risks, anyway?
