Erica Jong said, "Poetry is what we turn to in the most emotional moments of our lives -- when a beloved friend dies, when a baby is born, when we fall in love." Wallace Stevens said, "A poet looks at the world the way a man looks at a woman." Edgar Allan Poe said, "Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words." Most of us agree, when it comes to expressing passion, there is nothing more effective than poetry.

Ever have kinky thoughts about Spock and Kirk? Princess Leia? Ever wonder just what you could do with the light saber?
Inside the pages of the Geeky Kink Anthology, you'll find everything a geeky kinky reader could want -- from alien anal probing to comic book super heroes and super villains, all sorts of Elvin sex, and even such slightly obscure nerdishness as a new take on Jean Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear.
And of course, there are ample references to Doctor Who, Star Trek, Harry Potter, and Devo.
So strap yourself in...it's going to be a ride like none other. You'll find my story, "'Aunt' Grace", and work by other award-winning authors like Cecilia Tan and Tamsin Flowers as well as first-timer geeky kink authors making their publishing debut!
Now through November 15, you can get $2 off ebooks and $5 off print copies of the Geeky Kink Anthology with special coupons for GKE attendees (and friends and family).
The most important thing to understand if you create an account on any website that is free (and even some that charge a fee) is that you're not the consumer, you're the product. In today's blog post, "Staying Safe Online," I discuss things to consider if you have, or want to have, a profile on a fetish site.
On conventional social media sites, you're limited in your ability to embarrass yourself by each site's content restrictions. But fetish sites have no such constraints. Instead of monetizing your cute kitten pictures, those sites profit off your sex life.
"Staying Safe Online" is excerpted from Connecting to Kink: Safely exploring your BDSM fantasies online.
I've ordered the cake. The print books have arrived. I've selected the prizes. I've marked passages to share with you (you'll get to help pick which ones I actually read). I'll even bring a sneak peak from the WIP that will become the third book in The Lady & The Spyder series.
All that's needed to make the book release party for Spyder's Truth wonderful fun is you!

A BDSM Space OperaCenturies ago, theocratic governments subjugated the last resistance on Earth. Those unwilling to tolerate the religious bigotry, fled the planet seeking a new beginning among the stars.
Generations later, their descendants found a new home in a far away system.
But no matter how far humans travel, greed and the desire for control journey with them and now the specter of intolerance rises again.
The Lady Cassandra -- FemDom, slave owner, Dominatrix -- finds her lifestyle and her livelihood threatened by a fast-rising fanatical movement founded by a former client. Her alpha slave, Captain Varyl Malonds aka Spyder -- smuggler and superb pilot with incredible tactical skills -- risks his ship, his income, and even his life for his Lady.
Published January, 2015Spyder, captain of the spaceship Trouble, ignores threats from the owner of his cargo and the anger of his influential and overdue passenger to rescue the Dominatrix Lady Cassandra. The delay forces him to risk Trouble, his life and that of his crew when a notorious criminal chases the ship from one end of the system to another.
Releases October 5 in ebook; October 8 in printAboard a ship named Truth, Spyder carries the Lady Cassandra on her crusade to stop the Righteous Order of Piety Purists from enslaving the system in a sexless, joyless existence.

, Book Two of The Lady & The Spyder
One by one the Righteous Order of Piety Purists takes over settled planets and colonies, enthralling governments to imprison their citizens in a sexless, joyless existence. Forced into exile, compelled to form a morally questionable affiliation with a crime lord, the Dominatrix Lady Cassandra struggles to protect her slaves and clients from the encroaching Pietist threat.
But liberating a devoted collaborator spirals into a violent confrontation. To protect her allies, Cassandra and her slave captain Spyder, take the Order's so-called representatives into custody. Although they claim piety and peace, the prisoners' heavily armed presence aboard Cassandra's spaceship Truth
, endangers both the crew and the ship.
Pursued by ships equipped with sophisticated tracking equipment and weaponry, Spyder must use his wits, his crew's talents, and everything he can demand of Truth
to keep them all alive. Because of the Pietist's disproportionate reaction, Lady Cassandra questions the Order's priorities and goals. She discovers the roots of the movement entangled with her own history and realizes the Pietists will sacrifice anything and anyone to destroy her.Spyder's Truth
