The “Bad Girl of Gymnastics” meets her new coach

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last Saturday Spankings post. But I’m finally ready with a very special new book. Wren’s Redemption is set to release next Friday, December 4th.

Saturday Spankings

Fallen from grace, America’s sweetheart of gymnastics has now become America’s bad girl. With the help of an old friend- sexy, physical trainer / coach, Jonathan, Wren is back in the gym and more determined than ever to make the National team. And Jonathan has decided to train her a bit differently…

Here’s my eight’ish sentences 🙂

 

 

“Are you going to act like this the whole time we are together?” Her brow furrowed and the pink flush spread to her ears.

“You’re asking if I’ll spank your bare bottom again.”

Her small squeak of embarrassment assured him he had all of her attention, even though she wouldn’t meet his gaze. It had worked three years ago. Why not?

“Yes, my little rebel, I’m going to work your ass harder than you have ever trained before. And when you give up, or don’t give your all, or give me too much attitude, I will punish you. And I promise you, when we are done, you will be the best “bad girl”, gymnastics has ever seen.”

 

Cover reveal, tomorrow!

https://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/1f1a4a0822/

To be eligible for my prize, a free copy of one of my books, just read the excerpt and comment at the end. It’s that simple.

The following excerpt is taken from The Coach’s Discipline.  Claire is being talked through her very first self spanking – over the phone. Hopefully, it heats up more than just her bare bottom. 😉

 

She giggled. She couldn’t help it. This was kind of unnerving and exciting. “Sorry, what did you say?”

“Naughty young ladies who don’t pay attention, get punished, Claire.” He paused and in a silken voice, emphasizing each word, he said, “Bend. Over. The. Bed.”

She swallowed hard and complied quickly.

“Arms straight, hands reaching for the other end.”

She stretched her arms out, and placed her palms on the top of her pink paisley coverlet. Her breathing felt fast. She wondered if he could hear her.

“Close your eyes, and listen.” He directed and she obeyed.

Crack!

Her eyes flew open, and she choked on a breath. She flinched again, when the loud thud repeated over her phone, right next to her head.

“That is a wooden hairbrush,” he explained casually. “I’m striking my palm, but we are going to pretend this is your naughty bottom.”

Claire mewled and felt her heart rate increase.

“Are your eyes closed?”

“Y-y-yes sir,” she stuttered and clenched her eyelids closed.

Crack! “Are you paying attention now?”

“Yes, sir,” she said in between rapid breaths.

“Pull your pants and panties down right below your cheeks, Claire.”

“Okay.” She yanked her panties down, and got stuck before remembering to grab the waistband of her pants. She finally got them both pulled down, and the cool air rushed to her cheeks and between her legs. Good Lord! The moisture dripping down her thighs gave her a feeling of coolness and heat at the same time.

“Push your butt out – away from the bed. Way out.”

She pressed her bottom out, and arched her back, and licked her lips. She felt so vulnerable. If he was there, he would be able to see everything, every bit of her aching, wet, throbbing, lower body. She trembled with excitement, and told him she was in position.

“Good girl,” he praised. “Stroke your bottom, pat it gently just like I would if I was there right now rewarding you for your obedience.”

Her legs shook as she reached back and patted herself. That word, obedience. It shouldn’t have such an effect on her, but she would worry about that later.

###

Blurb:

Marathon runner Claire Jacobs has always dreamed of making it to the Olympics, but she has a habit of getting in her own way. With the help of Nick Fox, a legendary coach known for his unconventional techniques, she prepares for one last shot at her dream. Traumatic memories of her experience with her last coach still haunt Claire, though, and in spite of his reputation she finds it hard to trust Nick’s authority.

The more time he spends with Claire, the more Nick finds himself enchanted by her drive and deep commitment to her fellow runners. But when her self-destructive behavior crosses the line, Nick realizes he has only one option to help the woman he has come to care about so much—he will need to give her the first spanking of her life and make sure it is one she will not forget.

Despite his firm discipline, Claire quickly comes to crave Nick’s dominance and direction, and soon he has grown to be much more than just her coach. But when jealousy and misunderstandings threaten to tear the team apart, will she run away as she always has in the past, or can she trust in her newfound love and race toward her goals with an open heart?

Publisher’s Note: The Coach’s Discipline is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Saturday Spanks: Her Spanking Has Just Begun – Cassie and the Fire Captain

Saturday Spankings

It’s Saturday Spankings time! Which means I get to share some more from my brand new release, Cassie and the Fireman.

Cassie is over Eric’s lap.

And Eric is about to start a fire of his own – on her bare backside…

 

“Loosen up.” He patted her gently. “I don’t want to bruise you.”

 She nodded her head and softened her round cheeks, and he began again in earnest, spanking left, then right, then center, watching as each slap wiggled her fleshy backside. The rosy color intensified and he picked up the pace. He needed to make this a good, hard spanking, one that would release all of her guilt. Giving her a few more firm swats, he paused and lifted her to her feet.

 “Is it over?” she sniffled, rubbing her pink bottom.

 “The warm-up is.”

 

Blurb:

When twenty-four-year-old Cassie Stevens meets Eric Waters, her town’s hunky new fire captain, she assumes he is way out of her league. Cassie isn’t a beauty queen like her mother, and a mature, no-nonsense man like Eric would never be attracted to a fun-loving tomboy like her, especially considering her penchant for getting herself in trouble. So it comes as a shock when he stops by the diner where she works, steers her out of an altercation with some rude customers, and promptly asks her out on a date.

It doesn’t take Cassie long to realize that she has finally met the man of her dreams, and Eric seems to enjoy her sense of humor and playful ways. But after she pulls a foolish prank on him during their first date, he takes her over his knee for a spanking, and she quickly discovers how much a man’s firm hand can sting when applied to a naughty girl’s bare bottom.

Eric’s attention and affection make Cassie feel more loved than she has ever felt before, and despite her sore bottom, his discipline leaves her aroused and yearning to be his. But just as she’s about to give him her heart, it seems he’s no longer interested. Can Cassie put aside her fears and trust Eric, or will her doubts set off a chain of events which will tear their relationship apart?

Publisher’s Note: Cassie and the Fire Captain is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

(I know, I said from the get-go, I wasn’t going to do a school story. I was going to do a summer one, no matter what! Well, these characters just popped into my head, and begged for a little action, so I had to oblige. All characters have agreed to be “used” in this forum. 🙂 And I even found some cool visuals to go with the piece. Enjoy!)

*****

Katherine sat at her little desk twirling her blonde hair between two fingers, scowling at her best friend, Corinne, who was happily scribbling out a rough draft.

The first day of class at Saint Larrup’s school for authors was proving not only to be boring and unproductive, but also frustrating as all hell.

“How’s your character sketches coming, authors?” The handsome, stern teacher, Mr. Sterling called from the front of the room.

sexy teacher

 

“It’d be a lot better if someone wasn’t stealing my men.” Katherine grumbled and kicked Corinne’s feet.

“Ungh! What was that for,” Corinne glared and whispered.

“You know I wanted the hot 32 year blond werewolf hunk for my petite brunette pixie.” Katherine said angrily.

“Well,” Corinne smiled sweetly, “I’m using a 32 year old blond fireman for my petite brunette lawyer. It’s completely different. Suck it up, whiner.”

“Yeah, Katherine, completely different. One’s contemporary, the other’s, what the hell do you call a mixture of paranormal and fantasy anyway.” Their friend, Adaline laughed.

Whack!

A long ruler cracked down on Adaline’s desk, startling all the women.

“Ladies. Eyes on your papers, mouths closed, please,” The assistant professor, Miss Pandora Blake, gave them a firm scold.
Dreams-of-Spanking_godiva005(http://dreamsofspanking.com/pages/free/godiva

 

Katherine’s cheeks flushed red, hating being called out in front of the whole class.

Natasha stifled a giggle, and shook her head.

“Goody goody.” Katherine nudged Natasha’s seat, tapping her plaid backside with her saddle shoes. “You know, you don’t always have to sit up front.” Katherine whispered.

“Good girls always sit up front,” Natasha winked.

“Good girl, my a—“

“How’s the sketch coming, Ms. Deane?” Mr. Sterling‘s cool eyes bore into Katherine’s, and she hiccupped nervously. “Working on it, sir.”

Grrr! Katherine crumpled up her page of scribbled paper, and tossed it aside. Unfortunately, it popped off Corinne’s head.

“What now?” Corinne rolled her eyes and glared.

“I have writer’s block. I can’t write anything now.” She huffed under her breath, and turned her attention back to her empty paper when Mr. Sterling turned her way again.

When both the handsome professor and his sexy assistant teacher were well into a quiet conversation about dialog tags, Katherine handed Corinne a note.

Give me the blond hottie!!!!!!!

Hell No! 🙂 came the written reply

You suck!

And you swallow, 🙂 🙂 🙂 Corinne giggled when she passed the note back, infuriating Katherine even more.

“I need my own hottie!” Katherine hissed.

“You need to learn share!” Corinne whispered, getting angry.

“You need to ‘pants’ more.” Katherine glared.

Adaline giggled. “Ooh, the pantser’s on a roll!”

Well,” huffed Corinne, “You could try a little plot outlining once in a while instead of calling me at one am to tell me about all your ideas.”

“I need to talk them out!” Katherine barely kept her angry words as a whisper.

“Pantser and a plotter, sitting in a tree…” Adaline sang.

“Ooh,” Renee Rose leaned in, excited, “You two should kiss!”

Casey McKay grumbled, “Just get the fight over with already before you get us all in trouble.”

“Fine.” Corinne smiled. “I’m just going to plot out the best way to use my blond hottie.”

Arrrrgh!” Katherine stood in a rage, and grabbed Corinne’s dark ponytail, and yanked.

Corinne stood and both women faced off in a showdown of vicious dialog tag comments and hair pulling.

All hell broke loose.

“Fight, fight, fight!” Casey jumped onto the top of her desk with a loud “Woohoo! Elbow her in the chest! Yeah!”

Tara shook her head, smiling. “That’s a fret.”

Renee and Adaline broke into loud peals of laughter, and egged on the two women as Casey worked the class into frenzied shouts. She had just started the class on a huge stadium wave, when a loud piercing whistle cut through the classroom.

A very angry teacher folded his arms across his chest, glaring at the women in the center of the room.

“Who started this?” he asked, his voice deadly quiet, and very scary.

rolling up sleeves

All hands in the room pointed to Katherine and Corinne.

“If you ask me, sir, I think you should plug them both.” Natasha gave an angelic smile of perfect white teeth, and handed him two silicone plugs from her backpack.

His incredulous look, caused her to shrug as she smiled. “I carry them with me wherever I go. You know never know when you might need one.”

“Plug them! Plug them! Plug them!” Casey jumped up and down and shouted in a frenzy, until Mr. Smith took her by the ear.

He led her to a corner in the classroom, swatting her bottom. “No more getting everyone worked up, Ms. McKay. This is not a derby match.” He swatted the back of her plaid skirt. “You stay here, quietly.”
spanked over panties

 

He worked his way back to the center of the room, and all eyes looked to the floor, except for Tara Finnegan’s.

“Oy, Teach! I need to use the jacks.” (Irish slang for using the restroom) She stood and grinned at the large man in front of her.

“I think, Ms. Finnegan,” he glanced at the pack of cigarettes hanging in her lacy, black garter belt. Her plaid skirt was two inches shorter than the rest of her classmates showing off her cigarettes and accentuating her killer black combat boots. “that a trip to the bathroom has nothing to do with using the facilities.”

“Ah, feck! Sure look it.” (acceptable Irish response for pretty much anything) She winked.

He gave her a quick swat across the back of her short skirt, before she left the room.

 schoolgirl spanking by teacher

 

It seems some other young ladies are in need of a refresher course in school etiquette.” He addressed the class. “Ms. Scott,” he called out to the new exchange student, Erica Scott, who was still in the other corner, holding her skirt above her waist, her bottom blooming red, “Please explain to the class your experience with the lexan paddle.”

erica scott in cornerhttp://ericascottlls.blogspot.com/

She winced and rubbed her red cheeks. “On a scale of one to five, sir, I would call it a 4.5. That mother hurt.”

“We’ll conclude your session after class, Ms. Scott. Please pull up your panties, and return to your desk.

 

Ms. Alexander, Ms. Deane, front and center.”

“Did you forget this class uses corporal punishment?” Corinne whispered to Katherine as they marched to the front of the room.

“I forgot about that. Nuts!” Katherine scowled.

rolling up sleeves

Ladies, please bend over and place your hands on the desk.” He said, pulling the long wooden paddle from the wall.

He rolled up their plaid skirts, so their cotton panties were in view for everyone to see.

“What have we here?” He patted Katherine’s backside.

Gah! Katherine had forgotten about the white panty rule. “Um, they’re Underdog, sir.” She flushed.

“Are these the appropriate apparel for St. Larrup’s school uniform.” He patted her panties, squeezing her left cheek.

“N-no, sir.” She shuddered.

Well. They will just have to come off.” He stripped them down her legs faster than she could say Sweet Polly Purebred, and the cool air rushed between her bottom cheeks.

He nudged her feet apart, and she knew her classmates were now getting a full view of every bit of her most intimate parts. Gawd, how embarrassing!

“How many strokes should these naughty girls get for disrupting class?” He asked aloud.

“Fifty! And the plugs!” Natasha’s breathless voice squealed.

He took Natasha by the ear, and placed her in the corner, “Nose right here, Ms. Knight. And not another word about plugs.”

Natasha groaned as he swatted her hard and positioned her, giving her a few more hard swats. “I’ll deal with you after class, Ms. Knight. Bring your plugs.”

“Yes, sir.” She nodded and pressed her nose to the corner.

“All right, ladies, are you ready for your paddling?”

He asked the question to Corinne and Katherine, but it was Adeline’s excited “Oh yeah! Spankings, then oral sex!” that left the class in titters.

“Come here, Ms. Raine. We have another corner for you.” Miss Blake said, pressing Adeline’s nose into the third corner while peppering her rear end with the ruler.

Mr. Sterling turned to the class, his dark eyes aggressive and dominant, causing all the women to lower their eyes and shiver.

Renee was the only one who seemed angry about the whole incident, sitting cross armed with her mouth set in a firm line as she watched him stride toward the bottoms he was about to heat.

Jealousy, perhaps?

“I’m the one with the hot school girl pic for my avatar.” She mumbled.

Do you have a problem with this, Ms. Rose?”

“No. Sir.” She bit out and glared at him sullenly.

“Very well.”

He picked up the paddle again, and tapped Corinne’s pantied bottom softly, caressing it gently, before bringing it down in a sharp loud crack.

She flinched and shuffled on her feet.

He brought the paddle down again, twice more, and she groaned and pressed her cheek into the hard wood desk.

When Katherine felt the cool wood tap her already bare bottom, she clenched involuntarily.

“Relax.” He said, tapping the underside of her cheeks until she softened. “Rear up a bit more, please, Ms. Deane.”

 

spanked over desk

She pressed her bottom up, and held her breath, waiting for the hard wood to make impact.

Crack!

The sound startled her before the searing pain seeped into her nether regions.

Whack!

He struck both cheeks hard and fast, and she choked on a breath.

The heat built in her poor bottom quickly as he paddled her quick and hard, leaving no part of her white bare bottom untouched.

Her howls and pleading fell on deaf ears as he paddled her hard, again and again, until she sagged over the desk, sobbing.

She could barely hear Corinne’s yelps and cries over her own labored breaths.

Oh my gosh, this dreadful teacher had ravaged her ass! And now he was doing the same to her best friend.

“Stop!” She called out, and the loud cracks of the paddle ceased. “It’s my fault.” Katherine cried, turning her tear filled eyes toward her best friend. “You can have the blond hottie. I’ll pick someone different.”

“No, it’s okay. You take him I can always plot out something different.” Corinne sniffled and reached for her hand.

Or,” their teacher’s voice cut in smoothly as he stroked both their sore bottom cheeks. “You could work together on a tandem story. You could mix your pantsing with Corinne’s plotting.”

Natasha giggled from her corner, “You could call it plantsing, sir.” This received a few good girl swats with his palm.

Best idea I’ve heard all day,” Katherine groaned as she placed her hands onto her sore hot bottom. “May we go back to work, sir?”

“Yes, you may.” He patted them each one last time, pulled up Katherine’s panties, and unfolded both of their short skirts.

“Ladies, you may all return to your desks.” He addressed the women in the corners.

Katherine thought she heard Natasha mumble something about butt plugs, as she, Adaline and  Casey returned to their desks.

“All right, class. We are going to stop character sketches and work on a new project, outlining a story. Here’s your premise.”

He wrote in big block letter on the chalk board, and the entire class groaned and flushed when they read the subject.

Well, isn’t that the bomb sauce?” Muttered Renee from behind Katherine.

Mr. Sterling smiled.

“I almost forgot the visual cue. Ms. Blake …?” He led his assistant to the center of the room and sat her in a hard backed chair facing the classroom.

He pointed at Renee and gave her a knowing smile. “Care to do the honors, Miss Rose?”

“My panties are already down,” she said, taking his hand, as he led her to the seated assistant.

“Over Miss Blake’s lap, please.”

The class watched Renee position herself over the assistant’s lap, smiling from ear to ear.

“All right class, let’s begin. “

Miss Blake raised her hand, preparing for the first strike on Renee’s upturned, bare bottom, and everyone leaned forward in anticipation of the visual that would get them all writing, happily.

#

Excited students clamored outside the door, fighting over a tiny peek through the window.

“Man,” Sarah Young pouted, “I am so taking that class next year!”

So in keeping with today’s kinky / spanky theme 🙂 if you could choose a celebrity to dress up (this is fictitious, of course!) in school girl or boy attire, and receive a sound spanking from an ‘oh so stern’ teacher, whom would you choose?

Hehe, I’ve already made some of my choices today. But I still have more in mind. 😉 How about you?

The following excerpt comes from a fun paranormal / fantasy I co-wrote with Renee Rose and Casey McKay, The Winter Storm: An Ever After Chronicle.

Don’t worry, even though it takes place during a blizzard, things have really heated up between Jillian and her new mate – wolf shifter, Bertram.

Enjoy!

*****

 

He had meant for this to be a punishment, but there was no way he could hold off any longer. The sight of her bare bottom contracting around the ginger, her legs slick with her juices, and the way she had rubbed her swollen pussy against the bed—he needed to be inside her. Now.

He stroked her soft skin and spanked one side, then the other, watching the pink build in her beautiful ass as she rocked back and forth. She kicked her legs and groaned, and he saw her beautiful pussy weeping, begging for release. He leaned forward and took a deep breath, imbibing the scent of her arousal. He flicked her swollen nub, and she cried out in ecstasy.

He threw her onto her back and watched her eyes dilate as he grabbed her wrists in his hands, pressing them into the mattress above her head. She shivered and swallowed hard, and the scent of her arousal increased.

“I want you, Jillian,” he growled.

“I—I want you too,” she stuttered in a combined state of arousal and something else. Fear?

“If I take you now, it’s going to be rough, hard. I need to mate with you, claim you as my own.” He paused to gauge her reaction, but her gaze never wavered.

She raised her head and looked him square in the eyes. “I’m yours to claim.”

“Forever? ‘Til death do us part?”

“How about happily ever after?” she beamed, and her eyes shone with love.

He growled and nuzzled her cheek. “Thank you. This part is going to satisfy my animal urges. I’m going to mark you and claim you as my own.”

“I understand,” she nodded.

“I promise, I won’t harm you.” He smelled her fear.

“Claim me, Wolfe,” she breathed as she pressed her groin up into his.

He growled and ripped her nightgown down the center, leaving her naked body prey to his. He unzipped his jeans, and his cock sprung free. His animal instincts took over, demanding to conquer and claim what was his.

His. Mate.

He barely kept control as he seized her hips and pulled her towards him. The wolf inside called to him, stronger than ever, to let go of everything except the need. His mate’s voice sung to him, begging him to conquer her in every way possible, and his blood boiled as his body shook with passionate rage.

He met her eyes and in one full stroke impaled her tight sheath. Her cries were as loud as his howls as he pumped in and out, knowing nothing other than his animal side. He yanked her head to the side, sank his fangs deep into her neck, and breathed in her essence. She sagged to the mattress as he licked her wound and fucked her, melding her soul with his. He roared as he came, pumping into her hard and fast, until he had nothing left and fell on top of her.

They were mated.

He withdrew his fangs and pressed his lips to the spot he had bitten. She shuddered and whimpered quietly as his senses slowly came back. He carefully withdrew from her and watched her wince.

“Sorry.” He kissed her red, tear-filled eyes. “Are you okay?”

“Yeah, yeah,” she nodded, still trying to catch her breath. “You were right.”

He felt a cold wave of dread come over him. She hated him, what he was, what he had done to her.

“I’m so sorry, Jillian.” He pulled his body off hers and tried to sit up, but she quickly pulled him back to her.

“Look at me,” she said with a power much like their time together in Stepmother’s play room. “I’m not angry. You warned me what it would be like. And yes, it hurt a lot.”

He winced.

But it didn’t harm me.” She looked deep into his eyes and pulled him down so she could kiss his forehead. “I’m okay.”

He felt something salty on his lips and felt the warm drops slide down his cheeks. “I can’t be something I’m not. Sometimes, I might need to…”

His head was yanked back suddenly by her firm grip in his hair. “I know that, Wolfe. And sometimes I’ll need to be spanked or punished. It doesn’t mean it won’t hurt sometimes. But I know in my heart you will never really harm me. Do you understand?”

He laughed and cried at the beauty of what she had said. His mate was perfect for him. “Yes, ma’am. I understand.”

She released his hair and kissed him hungrily, devouring his lips in hers. “Good. Now man up. And take me how I need to be taken.” Her eyes lowered and she winced. “A little gentler this time?” she whispered.

“I’ll be gentle, sweet girl.” He pulled her into his arms and hugged her tightly against his body. “I’ll be gentle.”

Author Share – Blog Hops

Author Share black letters

 

I am so excited to have Kathryn Blake and Jane Wakely for today’s Author Share – taking part in and running a blog hop. There are so many different types of “Hops” out there, and so much information. These two women have a ton of experience and have offered to share their insights with us.

Katherine Deane:  Thanks for joining me today, ladies. You both have great experience with blog hopping – from both sides of things.  So first of all, what exactly is a blog hop, what does it entail?

K.R. Blake:  Most blog hops are set up to allow visitors to “hop” from one blog to another in order to read snippets and sometimes win prizes, by clicking on links.  Some hops request participants add the full participant list to their blog post so it’s easier for the reader/visitor to go from blog to blog.  Some hops only ask that you add a link that will take the visitor back to the main page.  As to what a hop entails, each participant writes a post on his/her blog that fits the hop theme and meets its requirements.  The post remains “live” for the length of the hop.

Jane Wakely: Hi Katherine! Thanx for inviting us! Kathryn is right: A blog hop is a way for visitors/readers to hop from one blog to another for various things. Hops can be for snippets, prizes or a general get together of like minded bloggers. Often they follow a certain theme or holiday, but not always. I’ve set up my “Hops with Heart” blog to follow the seasons, and I welcome all genres/sub-genres of romance authors and book bloggers to participate. Hops not only vary over subject, but also complexity. Most allow you to visit only the blogs you’re interested in, but others have complex rules that must be followed.

Katherine Deane: Why would an author want to take part in doing a blog hop?

K.R. Blake: For free or very inexpensive promotion? A blog hop has the potential of “exposing” its participant authors work to readers who might not find them otherwise.  Some authors have huge followings, and if you’re in the same list with them, their readers may visit your post as well.

Jane Wakely: I agree! Most blog hops cost very little or nothing at all, but the potential to be seen by readers who may have never heard of you is worth the time it takes to write a post for the event.

Katherine Deane: What’s in it for the reader?

Jane Wakely: For the hops I run, one of the requirements is every author/blogger must provide a prize on their blog, and I offer a grand prize as well. Sometimes other authors will contribute another grand prize, but it’s not expected or required. A personal blog prize can be anything of the author’s choosing including ebooks, swag, paperbacks, gift cards, etc. From this perspective, readers have several chances to win prizes and the potential to discover new authors as they hop.

K.R. Blake: Free stuff?  Blog hops can be like free candy shops for those who want to win prizes like Kindles, gift cards. or even free books.  The hop I run, Saturday Spankings, doesn’t offer prizes.  The snippet each author posts for the hop is the prize.  So, its focus is on the readers who like spanking stories, not prize winners.

Katherine Deane: Is there such a thing as too many hops or too often?

K.R. Blake: I think so.  At least from the hop participant side rather than the visitor side.  Readers want a variety of material, and if all you do is give away your work for prizes, it has the potential of sending others the message that you value your work so cheaply, all you do is give it away.  At least that’s what I think.  I participate in three author snippet hops a week where we offer excerpts of our work (no prizes).  Unless I have a new release, I try to vary my offerings between my books, which means, on average, each book gets exposed once a month in that particular hop.

Jane Wakely: Yes, I think so. Not only are hops time consuming, but if done too often, they can become annoying and lose their purpose. I’m talking about the hops with prizes available, not snippet hops. I participate because I enjoy giving loyal readers, along with new fans, a chance to win something cool. If done too often, the target audience usually can’t keep up and the hop becomes something other than intended.

Katherine Deane: How many do you each take part in ( on the author side)?

Jane Wakely: I started my “Hops with Heart” blog this past spring, and I’m hosting five hops through the site (four for all genres of romance and one for paranormal authors only.) I have participated in two other hops this year, but I won’t do any more than that. In previous years, I’ve participated in anywhere from four to eight hops.

K.R. Blake: In addition to my three “regular” author hops, I participate in about six hops a year where the primary draw for readers is the list of prizes they could win by leaving comments on the blogs.

Katherine Deane: Where do you find blog hops that fit your specific genre? Since I am a spanking romance author, I would look for spanking friendly hops. How do I find them?

K.R. Blake: Good question.  Making and running  your own hop is always a potential solution. That’s what I did.  In addition, I try to post any spanking or kink related events (hops, discussions, etc.) I’m aware of on the sidebar of the Saturday Spankings site. So, if you do decide to start your own hop, let me know about it, so I can help spread the word.

Jane Wakely: I usually find hops by word of mouth. I belong to two romance author yahoo groups and when someone posts about a hop, I check it out and see if it fits my brand, then I decide whether or not to sign-up. Those hops are usually open to all romance genres, or at least mainstream books, which is where I would fit in. In order to find a genre specific hop, I created my own (the Howloween hop is specific to paranormal romance authors) and you could too! 🙂

Katherine Deane: What goes into running a blog hop?

K.R. Blake: I list Headmistress Blake as the Admin of Saturday Spankings. Sat Spanks, as I like to more affectionately call it, has rules, and I needed an avatar that would help police and enforce them.  I’m not too good at enforcing anything on anyone, so I let Mistress Blake be my spokesperson.  She’s been awfully quiet lately, though.  So, you will need someone, and it can be more than one person, to set up and run or administer the hop.  I prefer to use a site separate from my own blog to run Sat Spanks.

I use Linky List for my participant sign-up list.  There are other list makers available, but I believe all of them charge a yearly fee.  So, you need to pay a modest fee for use of  the “list maker” on a yearly basis.  Currently Linky List charges $25 a year, so it’s not extravagant.

Next, I have the actual Saturday Spankings site that I maintain by scheduling a weekly post to go live on its proper date and time, and I add the correct Linky List code to each post, double checking my dates.  Then, on Saturday morning (usually around 12:30 AM) I check every link to make sure they all work, and update the link to point to the actual post.  As I’m checking the links, I try to comment on as many posts as I can.  I’d say, on average, I spend three to four hours a week running my Saturday Spankings blog hop.

Jane Wakely: Let’s see…My first step also involved a separate site. I used blogger so I could have the same sign-in info, but I use a completely different blog. Rules are needed, so I created them next and I tweak them as needed–usually minor things I learn along the way. Next, I needed the linky account, but I decided to use Inlinkz. Inlinkz is free unless you want to set up sign-up lists that last over sixty days. I needed that option, so I pay them an annual fee of $20.

After those initial set ups, every blog hop follows the same formula. First, I decide when I want the hop and then I check my calendar to make sure I’m available. Next, I make a graphic (or a blog button) and write up something about the hop for the blog hop site. Next I make the link list and post everything to the blog. I tweet, FB, Google+, blog, etc to get the word out.

When the sign-up period ends, I send the hoppers a big info email that includes the rules, blog button and rafflecopter code and then wait for blog hop day! On the day of the hop, I check everyone’s links and make sure they have the necessary elements included in their post. (This usually takes 2-3 hours.) Once everyone is checked, I promote the hop like crazy!

The final step is to chose the grand prize winner and then email the info to the hop participants!

Katherine Deane: Does it have to be huge, and take part over several days?

Jane Wakely: Nope, a hop can be as large or as small as you want it. If you’re running it, you set the rules. I find that four days, including a weekend, works best, and including holidays is hit or miss (depends on the holiday.) I usually don’t include them, because the point of the hop is exposure and most holidays are spent with family or outside activities.

K.R. Blake: Another good question.  If the hop is offering prizes, it’s best to schedule it over a weekend, making sure you schedule your hop away from holidays, when people are more likely participating in “family” events, and avoiding conflicts with major conferences (if you’re running a reader/author hop) unless the hop is being held and promoted for the readers staying home.  The snippet hops, as I like to call them, usually have a sign-up period that lasts about a week, but the posts are scheduled for a single day. There are no hard and fast rules for setting up a hop, but the hop itself should have rules that participants must follow and an individual who will ride herd to make sure everyone is staying in line  (see Headmistress Blake).

Katherine Deane: Do you have to give prizes? If so, what do you give for prizes, and how do you obtain them?

K.R. Blake: Prizes are not obligatory, but if you do decide to offer them, it’s best to have them related to the nature of the hop.  Spanking-related hops will offer hand-made paddles as gifts as well as gift certificates to reputable sex toy places.  Because most of the spanking hops are author-related, gift cards to Amazon is a good idea along with having author participants offer prizes (like additional gift cards or one free eBook from their backlist).  You don’t want to cut into the sales of your most current book, so offering a selection from your older books is a good compromise.  As to how you obtain the prizes, you, or someone helping you, need to contact the prize supplier and ask if they would be willing to donate a prize for your hop in exchange for free advertising as a prize giver.  Offering prizes is very time consuming, but it does gain your hop better participation.

Jane Wakely: No, you don’t have to give prizes unless it’s one of the rules of the hop. It is one of the rules of the hops I run (Hops with Heart) and I usually make the prizes I give away, or add something I make to a swag bundle. Others give away ebooks, paperbacks, giftcards, etc. I leave the prize up to the blogger–it doesn’t matter what it is, as long as they offer something. I’ve seen other hops where the prize had to be something specific, but I don’t do that.

Katherine Deane:  Any tips or suggestions for taking part in and /or running a blog hop?

Jane Wakely: Taking part in a hop is relatively easy and can benefit both the blogger and the hopper. I think the best advice is to not make entering your giveaway too complicated. Asking a hopper to answer a question or like your page, etc doesn’t take too much time and has the potential to gain new fans. Anything more complex can turn off hoppers and defeats the purpose of fun! As for running a hop, Kathryn has made some great points. Don’t take on the project of a hop–especially one that might be large–if you can’t follow through. Other bloggers are depending on you and you need to be available to them in a reasonable amount of time.

K.R. Blake: As for taking part in a hop, try to make your entry something readers would like to read.  (Easier said than done, sometimes.) For hops that offer prizes, I usually provide an excerpt and ask readers to answer a question about it.  Even if I don’t ask a question related to the excerpt, II try to set up the post to make it easy for readers to purchase the specific book I’m promoting. As for running a hop, make sure you have time to devote specifically to setting up and promoting the hop.  Encourage comments and feedback, and make sure you respond to anyone who contacts you with a concern or question.  Hops are supposed to be fun, so do what you can to make them that way for yourself as well as others.

Dungeon Crawl – Winter Storm – Claimed by the wolf

dungeon crawl

Today’s excerpt comes from “The Winter Storm: An Ever After Chronicle“, the brand new book written by Casey McKay, Renee Rose and me!

This scene takes place in Jillian’s bedroom, where she is being punished by Bertram. Unfortunately, Bertram finds that he is being punished also, and his wolf side is demanding  something more. Here’s what happens next.

*****

He had meant for this to be a punishment, but there was no way he could hold off any longer. The sight of her bare bottom contracting around the ginger, her legs slick with her juices, and the way she had rubbed her swollen pussy against the bed—he needed to be inside her. Now.

He stroked her soft skin and spanked one side, then the other, watching the pink build in her beautiful ass as she rocked back and forth. She kicked her legs and groaned, and he saw her beautiful pussy weeping, begging for release. He leaned forward and took a deep breath, imbibing the scent of her arousal. He flicked her swollen nub, and she cried out in ecstasy.

He threw her onto her back and watched her eyes dilate as he grabbed her wrists in his hands, pressing them into the mattress above her head. She shivered and swallowed hard, and the scent of her arousal increased.

“I want you, Jillian,” he growled.

“I—I want you too,” she stuttered in a combined state of arousal and something else. Fear?

“If I take you now, it’s going to be rough, hard. I need to mate with you, claim you as my own.” He paused to gauge her reaction, but her gaze never wavered.

She raised her head and looked him square in the eyes. “I’m yours to claim.”

“Forever? ‘Til death do us part?”

“How about happily ever after?” she beamed, and her eyes shone with love.

He growled and nuzzled her cheek. “Thank you. This part is going to satisfy my animal urges. I’m going to mark you and claim you as my own.”

“I understand,” she nodded.

“I promise, I won’t harm you.” He smelled her fear.

“Claim me, Wolfe,” she breathed as she pressed her groin up into his.

*****

In a world where fairy tales and real life collide, in which truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and romance and fetish are the norm, a winter storm forces a cast of characters to converge at a unique lodge, and three interwoven tales are set in motion.

Jillian and her brother narrowly escape a wolf attack, thanks to a shapeshifter, Bertram. As the owner of the lodge, Bertram opens Jillian’s eyes to a whole new world filled with spanking and so much more. Will she keep fighting her submission, or allow herself the chance for true love?

Coral is a fugitive—hiding from herself, her true desires, and the sea witch to whom she owes a great debt. She fears showing real emotion and letting herself be free, but Jake Hill’s dominating presence beckons her to yield to him—not just her body, but her heart, mind, and soul. When the sea witch demands retribution, though, she may lose the one man she has come to trust.

When Faye blunders while casting a spell upon her landlord, he claims her as his slave until she can undo the magic, and she finds herself subject to his firm discipline. As her attraction to him grows, Faye fears she will give in to the handsome shifter and forever lose her maidenhood, and consequently her powers and the ability to fix her mistake.

Even as all three women struggle with surrendering to the dominant men they have fallen for, each finds herself on a journey to discover her true self. Can they find a way to yield to love without losing themselves in the process?
