The opening story explains that a riding crop has been left on a train from Paris to London, the only identifier, a tag with an email address and a request to send a story about it’s use before passing it on to another. Your task is to write a story about the traveling crop. To whom is it given? Who finds it and where? How is it used before being passed on. First experiments in discipline and or bondage, awakenings to dominance/submission as well as seasoned practitioners making use of a serendipitous toy can be considered. All sub-genres welcome, we are looking for a balanced mix. We expect imaginative uses of the crop, locations and set ups as well as strong character development. All heat levels welcome but we like it hot!

The holidays are over and winter has arrived. No hiding in the cave this year. Fortunately, I have been busy. Pleasure Haven and the Fire and Ice Anthology from Xcite books were released just after Christmas. Bondage at Sea, from Ellora’s Cave was released last week. A new anthology with Sizzler, Renaissance is due for release on February 1 and the new Anthology, Voyeur Eyes Only; Vegas Windows for the Erotic Author’s Association scheduled for February 14th. Along with the stories, I am co-editing a new anthology with Essemoh Teepee (details soon) and have some new audio work available on Audible.com.
Now for the hard part--marketing. So many options, so much to do and I am a bit lost as to where to start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I continue to write everyday and am going to work harder to make this website an enjoyable place to visit. Be gentle with me, ‘I’m dancing as fast as I can’
