As you’ll know if you’ve come over from Twitter, my first novel is finished and coming out very soon! The current release date is April 15th, but if I can get it out any sooner I will. If you want to know when it goes live on Amazon sign up for my newsletter.
While I’ve been gearing up for release, a few trusted acquaintances have been given ARCs of ‘Maisy’s Keeper’ and so far it’s going well! One of the things I was worried about when I started writing this book was appealing to a broad audience.
I set out to write a BDSM Romance novel from the perspective of someone who cares about the real-life kink community because they’re a part of it. I made a point of writing about consent, subdrop, and the emotional ups and downs of submission because that’s how I want BDSM to be depicted in the books I read.
However, I couldn’t help but worry I’d alienate non-kinky readers somewhere along the way.
So far, it’s looking good! Here are a handful of comments from my beta readers. I hope you all agree with them when you get your hands on a copy next month!
“So, my reading of your book resulted in an extreme need to pleasure myself without permission. (lousy time zones) & rightly a correction & orgasm ban. I’m pretty sure that’s the BDSM genre version of “two thumbs up,” (pun totally intended).”
“Something I’m enjoying about your book – really knowing the inexplicable submissive feelings you’re describing. You’re quite talented with the word thingies to be able to put feelings to paper.”
“…you better be busy writing the next book because I feel like my life as I once knew it, is nearly over.”
“I loved your writing, You had me totally hooked!”
