There are so many books out there, so many enjoyable books, that I had to narrow it down. I’ve decided...Read more of this blog post »

Here’s a story. A few years ago, I had written the first draft of Murder Most Unladylike, and I was very confused by it. It was about two children, but it was also about murder. I’d never really read anything like it. It seemed a bit too weird, a bit too dark,...Read more of this blog post »

In my experience and interactions with submissives in long-term, committed relationships, we attempt to be superheroes, to do it all, all in the name of taking care of our Dominants. Sure, there are probably some submissives in the world who prefer to be pampered and only take care of their Domin...Read more of this blog post »
