Chasing my tail

OH LAWDY! It’s August 1st already. What the hell happened to 2016?

The year has been a blur thus far. Receiving my rights back from Liquid Silver Books on the Dirty White Candy series, means they were all recovered and re-released this year through Syn Publishing.

That took some work.Web  Web  Web

In March, I released my very first Sci-Fi Alien Romance.KINDLE

I also attended my very first multi-author book signing at the North Iowa Book Bash! I rubbed elbows with awesome artists such as Sidda Lee Rain, Ella Dominguez, Jenna Jacob and more! I was even fortunate enough to win a table at next year’s event.

Now, as for the remainder of the year…I am working on a super secret project and while I do want to spill the beans, all I can say is that I signed a confidentiality agreement! When I can tell you, I’ll scream it from the mountain tops.

Also, I’m involved in a Winter Anthology through Lavish Publishing. For my contribution, I’ve added 3.5 into the Shifter Chronicles. For the Anthology, the version will be PG-13, but for those who like erotic romance, I’ll be publishing a full-length, sexed up version. I don’t believe cover reveals are all that big of a deal, so I’ll share it with you now. 😀 See, Miss Anita loves you!

Christmas Surprise

In this installment, we get a good look at the Special Forces division of FOSE and Jake’s obsession with Nala’s human friend, Susan. We may even get to find out who is behind the Separatist movement!

There is one more project I’m trying to finish this year, and that’s a Romantic Suspense/Crime Fiction novel. I’m not sure if I can squeeze it in, but if not, it’ll be early 2017 as I’ve already been working on it.

I also love that my husband is predictable. Among the wonderful things he’ll give me will be a bag of whole bean, Starbucks French Roast and a pair of fuzzy slippers.

We bitched – #Amazon listened.

I can tell you I never expected Amazon to listen. Never. Not in a million years.

But when I blogged about My Letter from Mr. Bezos, I mentioned that Amazon could sweeten the deal. That as an Indie – we don’t get the same tools at our disposal as the major publishing houses, like a pre-order button.

Holy Shit – they listened! I literally just received an email from Amazon. Indies now have a pre-order button!  Whaaaaattttt?

I know a few other authors said the same thing – give us the same features/tools. I am floored and in shock that someone is paying attention. This is why this company is huge. This is why it’s the biggest online retailer. This is why they’re taking over publishing.

They listen. I didn’t know they listened. But they did.

I know this seems like a very brown-nosy post and you’re certainly not accustomed to that attitude coming out of me. I’m so excited about this, that I’m not taking the time to choose my words wisely — I’m just shooting from the hip.

Thank you Amazon!

How to Masturbate – The Powerful Woman

Okay, so it’s not big secret that my Dirty White Candy series was less about romance (but there’s romance in it,) and more about the incredible sexual journey of the main character, Candy Kavana.

The main theme through all of my books (remembering I write non-erotic fiction as Kim Mullican) is a strong, empowered woman. I like strong women. I want to be Sarah Conner wielding an AR-15 saving the world from future robots… okay, that’s a bit of a stretch, but still.

I’ve found a channel on YouTube called Sexplanations. The channel host is Dr. Lindsey Doe, a Clinical Sexologist and she’s prepared to talk openly and honestly about sex.

With the erotic romance genre thriving, and the general population moving further from Victorian Era women-shaming, we are now more free to experience our sexuality with less guilt, less shaming and less stress.

And we already know, stress is a libido killer.

Anywhooo – Dr. Linsey talks in this video about masturbation. She talks about how to scratch that itch in various ways and to keep healthy. She stresses that masturbation is health care – ehem – for down there.

Don’t take my twisted-ass word for it – watch it.

Find your Zen in Bed

Communication is key in any relationship.  This is true in sexual relationships as well.  Frustration can mount for both men and women when they aren’t getting what they so desperately want.

Now the want can change from person to person.  But the fact remains the same.  If you can open up your communication with one another, you can not only learn what drives your partner wild, you may very well learn a few things about yourself.

So how do you start?  Well, depending on your comfort level, here are a few suggestions for you.

Decide what you want but are not getting now.

Do you want more oral pleasure? Slower pace?  Start off easy.  Figure out what you want.

Naughty Lite

I know from chatting with some of my fans that some of you have never done anything the least bit dramatic, so diving into, say… a threesome is a bit of a stretch at this point.  So what can you do?  Start off small, something less intimidating.  Try talking naughty during sex.  Do something you’ve never done.  When you come up from behind him for that hug, lick his ear. Tell him you want him – NOW.  Go somewhere private and get yourself revved up and let him feel your sense of urgency.  Men, switch up positions, let her know she feels good – call her naughty.  Tell her you’ve been thinking about her all day and can’t wait to feel her pressed up against you.

More experienced people will tell you…

They didn’t start off sex-crazed maniacs shoving various items up their bums.  They started somewhere.  They took a risk, the leap and tried something new.  Go ahead, try it.  Driving somewhere with your spouse down the freeway/interstate?  We’ve all seen the signs from the road for adult toy shops.  Shock your significant other and pull in… walk around.  Don’t be afraid to giggle or point out what interests you.  It can be an education for you and your significant other.

Remove the fear

The biggest reason people get stuck in a rut is due to fear.  Take the fear away by putting a name to it.  When you talk to your partner, let them know you’re nervous, fearful of {insert item here} but you want to try XYZ.  I find what people fear the most is a bad response from their spouse/significant other.  Remember, they too are human, with fantasies and desires.  Be what they desire. Let them be your muse.

Happy as a Bearded Clam

UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM

As I wipe the sweat from my brow, I’m happy to say that I’ve finished the first draft of the third book in the Dirty White Candy series.  It’s the longest in the series thus far and I really had a difficult time ending it.

Candy goes through many changes in Trading Places.  I’m excited to see how my readers feel about Candy, John and a few other characters when this is all over.

Now that I’m done and sending it off to be printed (I simply cannot edit on a laptop.  It must be on paper,) I’m curious about something.  As a writer, I can do just about anything to my characters.  I can write nearly any story.  As I’ve said before, I write in other genre’s under my given name.

What do you like?  What do you want to read?  Werewolves, shape-shifters and vampires? BDSM? Secret societies?  What gets your panties wet or pops your tent?  Tell me what’s up, other than hard dicks and airplanes.

I value your opinion so much – here’s what I’ll do.  I’ll give away FIVE A.R.C.s (advance reading copies) of my new Dirty White Candy book (eBook only) for my top five choices.

So comment and share.  Momma is interested in what you have to say.

~Much Love,

Anita
