Take Charge comes out

My latest book, Take Charge, is out at Smashwords. It will be available soon on Amazon as well. It's a story about a wife who is fighting with herself about what she should want, as opposed to what she does want. And what she ends up getting, when she does find the strength to ask for more. Because husbands have needs as well. And there is give and take in any good relationship.

If you read this book please leave a review for it too. Reviews are what tell me what I am doing right and wrong. And I do so love to hear from people that have read my books. Thanks

Update:
Ruth is a normal wife, living a normal life. She has everything she has always been told that she needs. A husband she loves and who loves her back, two healthy and happy children, a beautiful home and a fulfilling job. So why does her body and soul seem to yearn for more? Why does she seek out a certain kinky type of book to read when her husband is sleeping at night? When she reads one of her favorite blogs, Candy Land, she thinks she might have found a way to get that bit more that she craves. All she has to do is work up the nerve to take charge, and hope that her husband is willing to do the same to her. But will she like what happens when he has some requests of his own?

Where to find me

The great thing about the internet is that it is such a huge and tiny place. It is just as easy to find something online as it is to get lost. To make sure I don't get lost I thought I would post a list of where to find me on various websites. So here it is, in no particular order.

Coming Attractions

I know I haven't published in a while, and that really sucks. It's been months now. But I have been working on it. So I thought I would give my followers a little sneak peak.

The Unexpected

One of the greatest joys in my life, that I never knew existed till recently, is hearing back from people that read my books. When I put out my first series, Safely Begun, I heard a lot of feedback from it. Most of it was word of mouth. My friends read it they said they enjoyed it. Some were even shocked by what I wrote. I didn't really understand the shock from the sex scenes, but to each their own.

I was thrilled to hear that people liked it. But considering most of those people were my friends, I thought it was best to take it will with a grain of salt. After all, Mark Coker warned writers about that very thing in his marketing guide. The people that know us are more likely to be impressed that we wrote anything at all.

But two reviews really struck a chord with me. One was from a stranger, hphsophia on Smashwords about the first book of the trilogy. She wrote, "Jesus H Christ this makes SOG look like Wuthering Heights. Some of the best described scenes I have ever read. And an actual story to boot. Please write more quickly." As soon as I read that I called my mother, all excited. Then I had to explain to her what Shades of Gray was. That was fun. But I was still really excited about it. It was my first stranger review and it was a good one. I was so thrilled that I immediately did what she asked and wrote more quickly.

However it was the second review that really got to me. My friend, Amber, called me up. She had been helping me spread the word about my books. She's awesome like that. One of the women she had told about my books contacted her. She told Amber that she liked the book. A nice pat on the back for me, but nothing too terribly exciting, even if it came from an unbiased person. Amber hadn't told her that she knew the author. But about a week later, the woman's husband called as well. He told her that he didn't know what his wife had been reading, but it had made a huge change for them. In fact, he told Amber, it had probably saved their marriage. I don't know what it was about the story that got to her. But something that I had written had drastically changed the sexual relationship she had with her husband, which was the root of their problem. I had tears in my eyes when I heard about it. And hearing that made me want to write more.

It was one thing to get a review written on a website. But to hear that my story may have saved a marriage... I was in awe. So to those people I did not know, and still don't know, I hope you are doing well. And I hope you have many happy sexy years together. This writer will keep doing what she has been doing, and hoping that more people embrace their own sexual selves. Just keep it safe, sane, and consensual.

Change of scene

I have spent the last few days updating book covers and adding in links to all my stories. I thought my old covers were okay, but they didn't seem to have the punch of some I saw online. Girding my loins I took a deep breath and opened GIMP to try my hand at something new.

I went from
to
Plans Revealed, the second book about Brandy, didn't sell well and that made me sad. I thought it was a sweet and sexy book that I wanted more people to enjoy. I'm hoping that it will catch more readers with the updated cover because it was a really fun story to write.

But even my top seller Safely Begun got a new look with
If you like the new covers, please let me know. I really enjoy getting feedback. If you want to see all of my new covers, check them out at Amazon or your favorite online retailer.

A new chapter

For the past ten years I have been following my husband around the country, from base to base, living the military life. I knew what I was signing on for, but I never realized how hard and exciting it would be. The hardest part was not having a steady job. I've always been a hard worker and thought I could just transfer with my job to wherever we moved. But during that first move my company went out of business and I was left unemployed in a town that didn't trust hiring military spouses.

Instead of working a 9-5 job I found myself working small part time jobs, picking up whatever I could. We didn't really need the extra money, we got by on his wages. It was more that I needed something to do with my time. For a long time I was catering food to the men my husband worked with. I love cooking for people that appreciate good food. And a lot of our guys in the military miss home cooked meals. Some of them had never even had scratch made cookies before. I made sure everyone had at least one taste before my husband's orders were up.

When we moved to a smaller location catering was no longer an option. And once again, neither was finding good steady employment. So I turned my hand to gardening and learning some new types of cuisine. After unpacking our library for the sixth time I also started looking into ebooks. That led me into a whole new world. I had a lot of free time so I began converting our library. Then I began converting some of the stories I had written. Then I learned about www.smashwords.com.

After careful research, and reading Mark Coker's guides, I formatted and published my first book Keep Her Safe. It was a story I had written, for myself and a few friends, years before. My husband was once again deployed and I decided it was time to settle myself down and build a solid work from home experience. The last year has been a real eye opener for me. I've learned so many things and had so much fun. I plan to continue with this career path for as long as I can, and my husband fully supports my plans. Now I can work from wherever we live, or even from my smartphone. I've published several books now, including two sequels to my first book. I have had a lot of fun writing all of them, and hearing from the people that have read my books.

My husband will be returning soon and we are both looking forward to this new chapter in our lives. He also says he is greatly looking forward to helping me edit my books, and try out anything I want to write about. I hope everyone that follows me also enjoys my books, and sympathizes with my husband/test subject. After twelve months of separation he is in for a serious cardio workout.
