Reviews

I appreciate the reviews "Ami's Courage" has received. It's so encouraging to hear positive feedback. Even if the feedback was negative, I'd appreciate it. The older I get the move I appreciate any constructive criticism. The reviews, however, have all been positive. I'd like to share one with you. Maybe it will encourage you to buy "Ami's Courage" for yourself if you haven't yet!!

Here it is:

Oh, my goodness, this story is definitely a page-turner that will have you on the edge of your seat, spine-tingling chills go down your body, and your heart is beating in your throat as it unfolds near the end. The story is a mystery thriller with a great cast of characters and very intense situations.

Ami and Jay have been together for more than ten years, they are best friends, lovers and Jay wants to marry Ami and has asked her several times, but she always has an excuse. Jay is a sweet man, great lover, and is very caring of her feelings. Ami comes to the reality that she needs more, she is a pleaser and tries to make everyone in her life happy, from her family to her friends to her employer. The problem is, Ami is so busy pleasing everyone else, she feels she is missing out, and when she comes to the realization that she needs dominance and discipline in her life from Jay, how will she approach him with her needs?

The plot will have Ami taking a weekend get away to contemplate her relationship and future with Jay. There is no doubt that they love each other, but Ami has a desire for more from Jay, and how can she approach him about it? Jay knows something is going on with Ami, and when she opens up and explains her desires, he is shocked and tells her he must give it a good deal of thought. Michael is their friend, he and Jay attend the same gym, work out together, and talk, but when Jay tells him about what Ami wants, he warns him not to do it. Michael places a wedge of deceit between Ami and Jay until they separate. What will it take for them to work this out and get back on track? Ami will find herself in a life and death situation in the site of a serial killer. Will Ami be rescued before it is too late?

The story takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery, honesty, and the dialog of being open and honest in a relationship. Research and talking it out is a key factor for any couple in adding spice to their relationship, whether it is role-playing spanking or adding domestic discipline. The most critical issues are open communication and making sure it is safe, sane and consensual.

Equal Sequel

Yes. It's begun. I have written the first two chapters of the sequel to Ami's Courage. Having seen the cover and developed these characters I really do love them. They are both sweet with a twist of complicated. 

I'm not sure where I want to take them now but even if I knew I wouldn't reveal that. No spoilers allowed!! I would, however, love to hear what you think.

What do you think of Ami and Jay in this first book? (remember, no spoilers!!)

Did they feel real to you? 

I can't wait to see where they go from here. I thought I knew in the first book where it was going but it took twists and turns that weren't in my outline. This time around I don't even have an outline. 

I will tell you this..... there will be more spanking in book two so those of you who love a good spanking scene will definitely want to read book two. 

I can't wait until my time is freed up so that I can devote my time to writing this book. Having a day job can be an inconvenience. LOL Wait. Here's a thought!! Get people to buy my book and I will be able to quit my job and write full time. Now, there's a dream!!! That would be awesome!! 

And if you've already read Ami's Courage, and feel led to do so, a review on Amazon would be awesome! (Even if it's not good. I'm a big kid. I can take it).

So go here and buy Ami's Courage and/or leave a review. I would appreciate it so very much!! 

In the meantime, carry on, be well, and be happy!!!

Talk to Me

So did you buy it? Are you reading it? 

It was so much fun to write and all the folks at http://www.blushingbooks.com/ have been so kind and wonderful to work with. 

I've got a few days off coming up with a project or two scheduled. In the meantime though I want to put some serious effort into where Ami and Jay go from here. I see so very much in store for them and can't wait to get them there. 

Lately, I've spent way too much time on my laptop just staring at the cover of "Ami's Courage" on Amazon. It's a beautiful cover. Jay's a handsome man, doncha think? Anyhow, I'm looking at a very neglected house so I'm going to put Ami and Jay to bed on this warm, cloudy Saturday and clean my house!! 

Happy reading!

Yeah!!!!

It's on Amazon!! You can buy it here!!! I sure would love it if you would!! Here... read this and then go buy it!!!

 After ten years of refusing Jay's proposal for marriage, Ami works up the courage to tell him what is holding her back. She loves him and she knows he loves her, that’s not the problem. Ami's struggle to accept her deep-rooted sexuality and desire to be dominated is proving difficult and, at times, she wonders if she really needs it or if life would be easier if she just ignored her needs.

After Ami finally shares her desires with Jay, he finds them puzzling to say the least. He may be unable to accommodate some of what Ami is asking him for. He turns to his friend, Michael, who convinces him that what Ami is asking shouldn't be a road which Jay should travel. Jay begins to question himself, his relationship with Ami, and their possible marriage.

But Michael is not what he seems and he is determined to possess Ami in a way no one can see coming. It becomes a night Ami will never forget. By the time Jay comes to the realization that what Ami is asking for might work for him, it might be too late. He may have already lost her to Michael – in a very traumatic way.

Is Ami strong enough to pursue her needs and desires? Is Jay strong enough to put aside his fears and give Ami what she needs? Are they strong enough together to grow, heal, and find happiness?

Publisher’s Note: This mystery thriller contains elements of domestic discipline and explicit sexual scenes. If you are easily shocked or offended, please do not purchase.




Don't forget... You can buy it here!!!

Coming Soon!!!

This morning was exciting. I woke up to an email which contained the potential cover for my book! 

Eeeek!!

I opened it carefully... slowly.... I scrolled down and there it was!! 

Ummmm...... I wasn't sure. I stared for a minute and felt kind of disappointed. I don't know what I was expecting but this wasn't it. 

But then... 

I looked again.

And again.

And yet again.

Yes. I saw it. It is perfect. I showed it to a few friends. They all love it!! I love it. I really love it!! The best was a friend who actually cried and said she is so happy for me.

The team who is making this happen had comments. One said that they don't like the knees on the cover so I think that will be adjusted a little bit but I wanted to come here and share it!. 

So are you ready?  

Wanna see?

Scroll down.....







a little more..... 











just a bit more...... 











TA-DA!!!!





Coming March 23rd!!!!

Update

I have an editor. Wow. I received the edited version of my book a few days ago. I'm going through it now and fixing a few things my editor has advised. I'm compliant. I am so excited to be experiencing this that I'm in no mood to question suggested edits... especially since I know my editor is correct. Most everything I look at leaves me saying, "Yup. It's better that way than the way I had it." 

And a release date has tentatively been set for late next month. NEXT MONTH. Wow. Tell your friends. Oh wait, most of out here won't tell our friends because well, you know. Here's the funny thing about that. I've let a number of friends in real life read my book and they liked it - or so they say. I have received a lot of excited comments and not one - NOT ONE - person has batted an eye about the content. They all act like it's perfectly normal to read and write about these things. Thank you Fifty Shades. Fifty Shades opened these topics up enormously. 

So anyhow, this is just a quick update. Things are progressing. I went through PK's publisher. Did I already tell you that? Probably. Anyhow, they are very kind, helpful people who are making the experience run smoothly. Stay tuned. I'm anxiously awaiting a cover! I can't wait to see what that looks like!! 

I'm going to go now. I want to finish reading over my edited copy and making the corrections that have been asked for. Mostly I over use ellipses..... who.... me..... nah.... never..... I told my editor about a college professor who wrote on one of my college papers, "Damn, you're good, but do eliminate all those ellipses.... they're maddening....... " I also told my editor that part of my problem is that I like them and don't realize I'm using them. LOL Anyhow, they will be eliminated. And apparently I need to add dialogue tags because apparently it's important for a reader to know who is saying what. Who knew? 

I'm kidding of course because I do realize I have a lot to learn and am definitely open to the learning experience because my next book has to be better. It just has to be. If it's not then that means I've learned nothing. Oh, and PK if you're reading (and I know you are) I need a special favor from you so when you get home from your jet setting, let me know when you have a minute!!! 

Okay. That's all.
