30 Weeks of Kink: Week #3 – 1/19/2017

Week 3: How did you discover you were kinky?

I discovered BDSM through reading. The first story I read was Lorcan’s Desire by S.J.D. Peterson back in 2013 and haven’t stopped since. The more I read, the more interested I was in knowing more. That’s when I joined the BDSM group on Goodreads.

A couple of days later, I received their newsletter with the announcement of their first writing event, and the rest is history. I wrote two stories for the 2015 Kink on Ink series, Binding Jax’s Heart, which I’m expanding at the moment. It was later selected as a Bedtime Story and a scene was narrated. You can listen to it here.

Also, I wrote Graphic Exposure, which gets its expansion in the next couple of months. It’s now the start of the Exhibits series and book #2, Prescribed Discipline is getting ready for submission as we speak. This year, I wrote Uncle! which is available for free on Instafreebie when you join my newsletter, Lila’s Monthly Musings.

With each book I read or write, I learn a bit more about BDSM. It’s a fascinating lifestyle. One that suits my dominant personality. 🙂

#TeaserTuesday – 1/10/2017 – Uncle!

Uncle! is a light BDSM sweet romance. At the moment, it’s free when you subscribe to my newsletter, Lila’s Monthly Musings. Enjoy!

hunter-lila-leigh-uncle-cover-final Jonah groaned when his phone rang, but when his older sister, Adrianne, got on the line laughing and sobbing in equal parts, he knew a forty-five minute drive down to San Diego would be in order. He expected something to be wrong with her daughter or perhaps her husband, but never in his wildest dreams had he expected the call to be about Madison Bishop having a makeover emergency.

Yes, Madison had needed some help in the fashion department last time they saw each other, but nothing that needed Jonah’s immediate intervention. Adrianne’s brother-in-law was the epitome of a lumberjack—from the flannel shirts and unkempt beard to the broad build and mud wrestling titles. Well, not mud wrestling exactly, but a grown man who travels the world competing in mud races, or “mudventures” as they called them, has to have a Peter Pan complex.

Madison has a dangerous air worth a thousand wicked dreams, but their niece had him wrapped around her little finger. Madison was the biggest pushover he’d ever met. Jonah wondered if he could get the man to do as he said. Maybe Madison had been a garden gnome in a previous life, if nudist gnomes were a thing.

Jonah couldn’t contain his laughter as he entered his sister’s kitchen. Sitting by the breakfast bar was a gnome indeed. One he didn’t mind having as his own. Madison Bishop sat beside their niece, Gabrielle, deep in concentration, and from what he could see, coloring. But the impressive part was the many flowers embellishing Madison’s long hair and beard. They were different colors and sizes and placed in clusters without much care. The man looked like a character from a Shakespeare play gone wrong. When everyone looked up, he tried to stop laughing, but they joined in instead, including the King of Fairies with his booming voice.

2017 #ROW80 Round 1: Check-In #2 | 10 Minute Novelist: Update #1

This week has been interesting. Getting back into the routine is taking longer than I expected, but it’s been very fulfilling. Yes, there are things like updating my website that I haven’t had the time to do, but I’m up-to-date with everything else; including my reviews.

Writing might take an extra week because I want to do some planning before I start. It’s one of the things I kept moving to the next day. I know my main characters since they’re the same as Tow Truck’s & New Year’s Kisses, but this novel/novella should be the first one in a trilogy.

So, tomorrow I’ll continue with my blog and review schedules, start planning book #1 of Cupcakes & Brews and start the review process for editing Binding Jax’s Heart. Yup, that’s the project that won second place in my writing plans for January and February.I’m expanding it and submitting it to a new-to-me publisher.

Accomplishments for week #1:

  • Read: 5 books
  • Reviewed: 5 full reviews; 5 shorts
  • Written: Just the weekly update for A Demon’s Duty to the Devil’s Son
  • Planned: next week’s schedule & plan of attack for writing and editing projects
  • Edited: NA
  • Promo: Created blog sign-ups; Set-up cover reveal; Got Instafreebie for Uncle!
  • Extras: lots of emails, posts, and many other words. At almost 8K words for the week.

hunter-lila-leigh-uncle-cover-finalWhen he received a frantic call from his older sister, the last thing Jonah Jacobson expected to hear was that Madison Bishop was having a makeover emergency. Her brother-in-law was the epitome of a lumberjack—from the flannel shirts and unkempt beard to the broad build and mud wrestling titles. But when Jonah arrived to the rescue, he ended up having a night to remember and a date with Madison.

Discovering he had more in common with Jonah than their niece was a pleasurable surprise in more than one way for Madison. The only thing he needed to do was show the fashion forward stylist how good they could be together if Jonah allowed him to take the lead.

Flowers and crowns might have brought them together, but a massage table would give them their happily ever after.
