Today I am doing a writing process blog hop. I would like to thank Rayanna Jamison for nominating me! Rayanna writes domestic discipline books and has her first book, Bride Two Soon coming out on April 30th!! Fortunately, she asked me to beta read this book, which is a polygamy domestic discipline book that is very romantic. You are all in for a treat
Now, I get to tell you a little bit about myself as a writer and a little bit about what I am working on.
1) What am I currently working on?
I am currently working on three things: the final edits for my first book tentatively called What a Girl Wants, which I am hoping will be released in the next 2-3 weeks. This is an Age Play book with two married couples who all work together and are good friends. The girls, Meggie and Molly, agreed to domestic discipline and love being Littles, but struggle with the discipline and rules their Daddies strictly enforce!
Second, I am working on another book which is a domestic discipline and therapeutic spanking story in which the main character is cutting and the EMT, who responded to the 911 call, falls in love with her and helps her overcome cutting with domestic discipline!
And, third, I am writing another AP book involving Meggie and Molly.
2) How does my work differ from others of it’s genre?
I have read Age Play for years and have loved all the books. I am not actually sure mine differs from others in this genre. I have kept with the elements of a good age play story–women who love to dress as little girls, play with dolls and crayons, get into mischief; and daddies who love to cuddle, wash, feed, care for and discipline their women/little girls. If there is any difference, I tried to reinforce that these women are sassy, out-going, independent, and professional, career women who not only agreed to domestic discipline as little girls but they also crave the love, security and cuddling from a daddy. Both Meggie and Molly didn’t have a daddy when they were little but each receives what they need/want in the Daddy/little girl dynamic.
3) Why do I write what I do?
As I have stated previously, I have been reading spanking fiction for years. I did not anticipate writing age play. I was sitting down to write a sexy story for Natasha Knight, just something to make her smile. To my surprise, and probably hers, she loved it. From there she encouraged me to add 10,000 words and helped me with the process of getting it to a publisher. Age play just rolls out of my fingers, it is very natural and easy.
As for the other story, I have worked in the psychiatric or psychology field for many years, so I am fascinated with how the mind works, behavior modification, and of course, anything to do with spanking.
4) How does my writing process work?
I don’t really have a writing process. I get an idea, I mull it over and get a general idea of what I want the book to be, and I just start typing. The story and characters just take me away and I get to watch it evolve. I think the thing that amazes me most: is how these ideas and scenes and discipline sessions just “pop” out of me. I don’t know where they were, don’t know how they came out, but it hits the computer and I am amazed and some days appalled. LOL. As I stated earlier, age play seems to flow out of me. I do all my writing on a laptop. When I wrote my first book, I wrote 10,000 in the first day and had the MS done in five days. I type in my living room with my two chihuahuas next to me, watching TV and in the middle of the family chaos after working eight hours at my day job.
We are suppose to nominate two authors, but I was fortunate enough to get three!! I am nominating Felicity Nichols of Mad in Wonderland Reviews, Bryce Bryce and Etta Stark. Please check out their blogs on April 21st to read about their writing process!
