Blurb: The Revolution Will Be Televised, Retweeted And Liked

August 2011

The London riots, coordinated by technology and social media, have brought the city to its knees.

Buildings are burning. Shops are being looted. Homes and businesses are destroyed.

Two alternative leaders have emerged in an online battle for the future soul of London.

Chester George – a masked man whose real identity is unknown, uses YouTube, punk rock and fierce intellect to spread the anarchy.

Sadie Hobbs – Reality TV star and blogger. Loathed and controversial, she urges ‘normal’ society to fight back against Chester George and the ‘feral rats’ destroying the city.

The fate of London hangs in the balance. And when the day of reckoning comes, hundreds of thousands of people, including sixteen-year-old Mack Walker, will descend upon the city for the final showdown and a day that London will never forget.

Research: Violet Wand And Its Effects #BDSM #ImpactPlay

Fellow writer and reader Summer Graystone asked me about the violet wand I used in The Brat With The Summer Phoenix Tattoo. Some time ago if someone asked me about impact play or anything to do with electricity I’d probably scream “Keep this away from me.” I believe I must push my own boundaries in writing and life so after some hesitation I put some research into … Continue reading Research: Violet Wand And Its Effects #BDSM #ImpactPlay

My 2017: Resolutions To Break And Rebuild

canstockphoto23357738

2016 has been an insane year, filled with plenty of joy, small successes, hit Publish buttons, pain, misfortune, and lessons to learn. It’s been a conflicting period for me and when I turn around to revise all my highs and lows I’m filled with mixed emotions. Still, emotions tend to cloud the judgment, so I’ll try not to get them involved. That’s rather difficult, given what a challenging time it was. In 2016 I published my first novel. I taught myself a better discipline of writing and finishing a project. I’m still slowly making my way around the horrors of promotion and trying to make a name for myself without being a sleazy spammer. Trying to find the best category of my writing, to make it alluring and seductive without regressing to porn and less than appealing imagery, finding the best in a world full of overused stock photography, figuring out what needs to be done for a really successful book launch. I’m still painfully naive about many things and I don’t consider that to be a self-compliment. There are never enough hours in the day for learning and given how much information there is all over the web I get easily overwhelmed and unable to structure it. Pretty often I get too burnt out to even think of continuing and yet I persist.

Most Indies shouldn’t ever publish. Well, most women shouldn’t have babies. #amwriting

Traditionally-published book-parents are proud to the point of arrogant about their progeny being Chosen, and they are enraged when an indie book baby does better than their own Improved By Professionals offering because it just isn’t fair. The indie parent had all the fun of producing exactly what they wanted, AND success? Continue reading Most Indies shouldn’t ever publish. Well, most women shouldn’t have babies. #amwriting

Last week we had some oral fixation and mouth fucking. Now it’s the ladies’ turn, with some additional pain to sweeten the pleasure. My quiet words are followed by another loud crack against her sore and painful pussy. Scarlett closes her eyes and lets the tears flow freely, ruining her make up. Her young body is torn between the conflicting sensations, but she raises her … Continue reading #MasturbationMonday – Sweet, Spicy Taste of a #Punished Girl – Professor's Brat #BDSM
