This is one of those posts that isn’t really a post, but a brief note to tell everyone that I am still in the land of the living.
There. You can stop worrying now.
What? You didn’t even notice I was gone? *Sigh*
C’est la vie…
For anyone who did happen to notice my recent absenteeism, I slept in, I thought it was Saturday so I didn’t come in and my homework got eaten by the dog.
Also, my newest baby, ‘The Bucket List Part Two (Caught)’ has created a bit of an issue with more than one pre-release reader, prompting a voluntary rewrite by yours truly.
It seems that my finely-honed writing skills have caused me to veer across the central line of fictional consensuality. In other words, I may have inadvertently pressured my submissive character, Lucy, into having sex when she didn’t want to.
Now, in certain seedy genres, that can be fairly normal stuff, but I don’t write dark erotica. I try to make it light, sexy and fun. But it seems that by dipping my toe into the extremely subjective world of BDSM has drawn me towards the dark side – and made several early readers very uncomfortable.
But Anakin Skywalker’s experiences (did I tell you I was also a geek?) have given me hope. There is a way back from that dark place and I intend, like him, to emerge with a smile on my face. I could do without the ‘facing certain death with my estranged son leaning over me’ part of the analogy, but you get the idea.
I’d like to thank those of you who have been frank and honsest in their opinions of my mis-step and can tell you that the resulting story will (I hope) emerge all the better for it.
Less BDSM and more fun coming right up. 😀
