It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally got a new book out: Nothing Forbidden. If you pre-ordered it already, thank you so much and enjoy! If you haven’t, go grab it now. And don’t forget to leave a review.
In addition to receiving some great feedback from my readers, being an erotica author has introduced me to some other amazing fellow authors over the years. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Max Sebastian, author of Madeleine Wakes, for more than a year now, and am always impressed with how powerful his work can be, but also how thoughtful a writer he is.
I’m an erotic author from London, England, who has been writing steamy tales since the late 1990s, but only went semi-pro in the last few years. In real life, I’m a thirtysomething freelance journalist who juggles his work with being a stay-at-home dad.
Max and Katie have tasted something forbidden, opening their marriage sexually to other people. It’s been a wild ride, and they are stronger for the experience. Max craves more and gives his headstrong wife the green light to play on her own–even as she vows to never risk their relationship again. But is that a promise she can keep in her new world of sexual freedom?
In this sequel to Kenny Wright’s Something Forbidden, follow Katie as she explores the new and exciting world suddenly open to her. When nothing’s forbidden, can she keep touch with what’s real, what’s important, or will it all slip away?
I don’t do reviews often, but Ben Boswell’s latest, The Surrogate Master, is definitely worthy of one.
Full disclosure: My wife edited this book. I formatted it. It’s published under KW Publishing. I may be biased, but I like to think I’m more objective than not.
So as the name suggests, The Surrogate Master touches on themes of Dominance and submission. Fans of 50 Shades of Grey should enjoy this. There’s some mild BDSM play, spanking, restraints, etc. As with all his books, this one touches on wife-sharing elements that flirt with a harder cuckold edge (in the way Ben does so well). But at the heart of all of that, there’s a love story. The couple is going through a rough patch—one that could very well end them. Instead, they deal with their issues in the most unconventional of ways—you guessed it, with the Master—and end up learning a lot about who they are, both individually and as husband and wife. I’ve made no secret that when I write, the couple is practically its own character. Max and Rachel definitely qualify. (more…)
In the spirit of the holiday, I’m releasing an excerpt of my latest book, Nothing Forbidden, as a Halloween treat. It doesn’t require having read the first book in the Max and Katie series, Something Forbidden, but be warned: there are some spoilers in this short story if you have not read Something Forbidden.
Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!
I design covers as a side-side-hobby. It began out of necessity for self-publishing, then morphed into something I did to help out fellow authors. When I went to post the cover of Nothing Forbidden, though, I realized that I was about four months behind on updating my cover gallery. So, for those interested, check out the last few months…in covers.
I told you I was writing! Between the new addition to our family and a new job in my professional life, I’ve been quiet on the erotica front, but not inactive. What started as a side project and short story turned first into a novella, then a novel. I wanted to explore the aftermath of Something Forbidden, as well as set up a new book (Training to Love It, a book I’ve mentioned it a few times in the past). What I ended up with was a full blown sequel to Something Forbidden, as well as my first book told exclusively from a female perspective (Katie’s).
I’m really pleased with the evolution of her character, and while it’s not really a fully formed thought in my mind, I could see myself writing a third book for this fun couple. But that’s going to have to wait for the many other projects I’ve got on deck.
Now would be a great time to re-read Something Forbidden (or pick it up if you haven’t). Look for Nothing Forbidden in the next month or so. Also, check back the week of Halloween for a special little sneak treat (see what I did there?). Blurb and cover after the break.
I can’t believe that we’re already in August. Part of me is still in the mindset that 2014 has only just begun, and yet we’re already over halfway through the year. I’ve been pretty quiet of late in the blogosphere, but I promise you that I’m being productive behind the scenes. Those who’ve been following along know I’ve got a novel in the works called Training to Love It. Well, that project has spawned a whole bunch of others, including a sequel to Something Forbidden that will set things up for Training. It had begun as a short, unfolded into a novella, and now I’m thinking it may be a book of its own. Leave a comment here if you’d be interested in that sort of thing.
In the lack of anything substantive to say beyond the above, I’ll give you a few recommended reads for this month, from my favorite authors. (more…)
At last, a new book from me! Well, kind of. It’s a collection of short stories (all but one of them completely new to you). Between books, ideas often strike me that don’t have enough to become full-length novel material, but need to get written anyway. I’ve collected the shorts I’ve created over the past year and bundled them into Wife Sharing Shorts, Vol. 1. And as a bonus, Max Sebastian has contributed a new and exclusive story to this collection: “The Three Laws of Wife-Sharing.” Don’t miss it!
I’ve released the first of these shorts for free on this site (“The Ballet”), so check it out and see if this is something you’re interested.
Blurb after the break: (more…)
