I don’t know what’s happening

Dominion is at #34 now, what the hell is going on?

Is there some magical promotional fairy around? It’s only been free for two days!

I just… I don’t know whether to be scared or excited. People are downloading my story. Isn’t that awesome? Oh, I hope they like it, really I do. I feel bad about the crappy cover now.

Behold!

I’m just so pleased… I’m gonna go write more! More free porn for all!

Dominion is published

About time! It’s up and live, and I’ve set it to be free. If I’ve figured the promotion thing right, it’ll be free in a couple of hours. The price hasn’t updated yet, unfortunately. So wait! Don’t buy it yet! I promise it’ll be free soon! It’s free for five days, and I hope you guys enjoy it.

Okay, I take it back about Amazon. They don’t really hate me. I am not so good with their system, even though they have all the nice instructions and hand-holding and whatnot. Still, that’s another story done, and it feels good. When I get to ten, I’ll package them up and sell them for five bucks.

And now I’m going back to laughing at the sex tips in Cosmo and writing more of that vampire thing.

More covers

Alright. Amazon hates me, but that doesn’t mean I can’t post the cover for y’all to look at, and the blurb. Here it is – Dominion. And it’ll be free as soon as I can upload it.

DOMINION is a short story about sex, whips and bondage.

Gillian Carly is an excellent personal assistant; calm, poised, professional in all things, and incredibly organized. Her new boss is Matthew Robson, the arrogant and driven multi-millionaire CEO of Robson Inc. 

Mr. Robson is used to being in control at all times, but Ms. Carly is not like other women. Supremely efficient and always ready with a snappy comeback, she refuses to be cowed by him and pushes back when he tries to intimidate her.

When he goes too far, and pulls her carefully hidden past out into the light, Ms. Carly turns on him and shows him what real power looks like.

Amazon hates me

Of course it does. I’m trying to publish a story for you all, because I love you so very much, and all it can do is taunt me with that damn ‘in review’ status.

I have no idea where I’m going with the vampire thing, so I decided to write BDSM. It’s called Dominion, and I’m going to make it free as soon as it’s up to apologise for having nothing for the last… what, three weeks?

Not good enough, Shay. Just not good enough.

This will be my first attempt at writing BDSM. I like to think I’ve done more research than E.L. James on it, but if I screw it up, I beg you to go easy on me. No punches below the belt, okay? And give me time to get my flame-resistant suit on.

That’s my biggest problem… I want to get it right, even when I’m not sure I know what ‘right’ is. You can imagine that me being secretive about this means I can’t just send it to friends for commentary, not even my kinky friends who would most likely give me the best feedback. I have to incorporate things I’ve learned after the fact, more or less, and hope I’m getting them at least somewhat correct.  I’ve had the benefit of knowing some very, very highly experienced people who have delivered a wealth of information on the nature of the BDSM lifestyle, and on their own choices within it.

Anyway, here’s another thing you didn’t know about me – I’m not into domination, per se, but I tend to be… violent, during sex. It’s like I don’t properly separate fighting and fucking in my mind. I’m very, very dominant in nature, though I don’t have the self-control to actually be a Dom, so I understand the mindset at least.

One of my very esteemed friends once told me, “People always think that the sub is the needy one, but in reality, the Dom is not whole without them. It should always be an equal relationship – not equal power, but equal investment and equal desire – for it to succeed.”

I thought she was very wise indeed.
