The Things we do for Research!

Good day to you all! Please forgive typos and grammar - I'm in a rush and I've just had my nails done for the ETO!



This week my head has been all over the place - mainly because on Monday the final book in my Clockwork Butterfly trilogy came out - it's a big job promoting and getting the word out! So expect a plug at the end...

It's a busy time - if you follow me on the social media - you might know that I have bad writers' block right now. Far from making things easier by NOT having to write everyday - it's actually stressful - worrying if it will ever, ever come back. (What if if doesn't? What if I've said all I need to say...?)

Anyhoo - as my wee brain can't stay unbusy at all, lots of other little projects pop up - designs, drawings, situations, plays, events etc. etc. All of which need research.

So - in the name of researching a product and situation, I needed some bullet vibes. And I needed them NOW! I looked up suppliers where I could dash off and get some and found that Ann Summers in a fairly close by village sold the very things - however, they were attached to cock rings.

I called up and told the lady I needed 2 of these uber powered cock rings and could she keep them aside for me?

Why yes madam.

So off I trotted to the shop to pick up my two extra heavy duty cock rings. She handed me them and I looked at them this way and that (they weren't quite the size I was looking for) - then asked about the longevity of the battery power because, "I need them to last a long time". The lady kindly supplied me with extra batteries too.

It wasn't until I was paying for everything that I suddenly thought about my purchase. 2 extra long lasting high powered vibrating cock rings. Suddenly the question appeared. Just what would a lady be doing with such items? So I said:

"Well look at me and my two cock rings - you must wondering what I'm up to tonight?"

The lady smiled broadly answering that indeed, she had been wondering... "I was desperate to ask but never would, of course!"

But ever the professionals, we simply shared a giggle and I went out.

So, that is that. And no, I'm not telling... :D

Here's that plug for that book I was talking about - it's saucy!
And I just got my first review! Click here :D
Snippet...
 “I’m sorry if I treated you badly.” Deborah addressed the woman behind her, but kept her gaze ahead. The land seemed to stretch out forever. Grasses, trees, and moorland filled the view until it sloped gently into the horizon. It humbled her in a way that made her want to fall to her knees in both grief and joy.
“You never did what I didn’t need, Mistress.” The words of Deborah’s companion hit her in the back like tiny darts, reminding her of her actions. She turned.
“I am no longer your Mistress, Cheryl.”
“If you say so, ma’am.” Cheryl’s voice threw Deborah. She spoke with the defiance she had been cultivating over the past few months. Deborah actually felt sad when she saw how her submissive had changed. She knew there had never been a spiritual intimacy between them, but there had been a strange companionship and understanding. That seemed to have vanished recently and a real disdain had grown.
“You may go your own way now, Cheryl.” The prison building loomed at their backs and Deborah was anxious to get moving—anxious to find her true love. The other horse drew up, shoulder to shoulder with hers.
“Would you mind if I rode with you for a while?” Cheryl said softly, with a hint of what used to pass between them.
No,” Deborah said gently. “I wouldn’t mind at all.” And with a flick of her heel, she kicked the great beast between her thighs into action. Her heart thundered at the same speed as the hooves that carried her. Adrenalin coursed through her and a lump of excited emotion grew in her throat as she smiled into the wind that lashed her face...
Blurb – The Meeting Point
A story of love, freedom, and the future of mankind. Deborah Regan has broken free from the prison where she’s been unjustly held for the past eight years. The scale of the devastation to the land outside is overwhelming. Toxins have taken hold, and the planet is dying. Deborah vows to find her lover Marcus and flee to the safety of the hills where their story first began.
Marcus is one of the few remaining men left on earth, and Deborah finds him held captive at a pleasure farm where he is kept to service rich and powerful women. Escape for him is complex and dangerous. They can only hope that the trio who helped Deborah before will come to their aid. Marcus has heard from his clients over the years of a mythical place with its own microclimate that toxin clouds seem to miss. He is sure they can find it and will be able to build a future together.
Mae, Lena, and Angelo feel compelled to find Deborah and Marcus who they know have a special connection that might prove essential to their survival. They make haste to track the couple and realize the plan they have chosen is fraught with danger and conflict.
Will they make it to the utopia Marcus dreams of?
