How poetry gets Catherine primed for a spanking

(Being an occasional excerpt from my novel Spank: The Improbable Adventures of George Aloysius Brown, in which Catherine goes punting on the River Cam) We have found ourselves in a grassy clearing secluded by mulberry bushes and elm trees where we lay out our blanket, the gentle swell of the river at our feet.

Catherine visits her lover (part 2)

(Being the fifth of occasional extracts from my novel)   It’s my turn to lead. I play with him, teasing him, letting the excitement build slowly. I am the hunter. He is the prey. He lies on his back and closes his eyes as my fingers prowl his body. I kneel at his side, running […]

Catherine visits her lover on a Sunday afternoon

(Being the fourth of occasional excerpts from my novel)   Steed undresses while I watch. He removes his kit with that unassailable self-confidence that only truly beautiful people possess. Beneath his tan line his skin is pale, but his cock is almost black. I fight an urge to reach for it, take it in both […]

…and risqué letters

I left you a few weeks ago, dear readers, on Pimlico Road as I had just set out on my UK odyssey to bring the world of Spank to my fellow Brits. I realize, however, that if I really want to sell my novel here, I’d be better off to leave Pimlico and head north […]

The pigeon-holing of erotica (and no, that’s not sexual)

It seems to be a flaw common to most of humanity—the desire to categorize and label absolutely everything we need come into contact with. If the world doesn’t have a clear classification scheme into which everything we encounter will fit, we just freak out! But it’s also one of the most frustrating things about being […]

Sex Guide for sale, only 330 years old

Romance readers will feel the love

Before the holidays,  I left you with a reporter’s questions about Spank: The Improbable Adventures of George Aloysius Brown. She wanted to know what sort of reader I think it will attract and why anyone who isn’t familiar with the erotica genre would want to read it . I’ll be honest, if people are turned […]
