Let's Get Lit!!! - Part One

Defying Convention - 
An Unbound Donovan's Door Story
Part One

Solomon opened the hotel door and stretched. God, she was getting too old for this. She’d been coming to the Plunder convention, celebrating her favorite swashbuckling video game, for five years now. And, Lord, late night parties felt different as a fresh-out-of-college kid than they did now.

How was that possible that five short years could make such a difference?

She flopped on the bed with a huff. She glanced at Max Wells who still had her face buried in the con’s schedule book, high on the novelty of her very first con. “Ooo, there’s a panel on the ethics of fan-made game modding in an hour; do you want to try to make it?”

Solomon groaned softly. How could Max still have so much energy? Envying the other woman’s excitement, Solomon sighed and longed for a time when this all felt new like it used to.

She loved conventions, especially the whole cosplay experience. Had for a very long time. Even before coming out as a transwoman, cosplay had provided a safe, fun outlet to explore gender and identity. From her very first crossplay costume—just some cheap mismatch of thrift-store leggings, a modified prom dress, and a wig—she’d fallen in love with the craft. Over the years, she’d learned so much about herself, her creativity and what she was capable of, through the magic of costuming. How with some fabric, Worbla, and a wig, you could become someone else. It was strange; transforming herself into someone else somehow let her be a little more herself too.

Even now, she still felt its magic. Still loved that, with ingenuity and hard work, anyone could be anything. She’d spent months planning and constructing her Atlantica costume, from stitching tiny mermaid scales on her skirt to forming intricate thermoplastic shells. It’d taken her two hours to get her look just right this morning. But, by the time she was done, she’d walked out of this room feeling like the sea goddess of her dreams.

Yet, as the day went on, all that magic began to lose its luster. She and Max had gotten up extra early this morning so they could get dressed in their costumes in time for the con’s start. Then they’d run from panel to panel, event to event. They’d visited artist alley and the dealer’s room. They’d watched belly dancers and stage sword fights.

It was only the first day of the convention; she shouldn’t feel so tired. It wasn’t even a physical exhaustion. She was just tired of it all. Tired of the crowds, of the noise, of the hustle and bustle. All the things that had felt exciting in her first few years of coming to the convention, just felt...wrong this year.

No, not wrong. Everything felt decidedly not wrong. Though not right either, not exactly. Just the same as always. The same panels, the same events, the same people. The same experience.

Maybe it wasn’t so much that she was getting too old for the convention, but could it be that the con—her favorite event of the year—was, after so many years, starting to feel old?

“You okay?”

Solomon looked up and saw Max sitting on the edge of the bed, looking at her worriedly. Solomon sat up and shrugged. “Just not really feeling the Plunder spirit this year.” She really hated to rain on Max’s first convention, but Solomon didn’t relish the idea of heading back into that people-packed throng. She heaved a reluctant sigh. “Just give me a minute and I’ll be good to go again.”

“Are you sure?” Max gripped the schedule book in her hand and bit her lip. “We don’t have to go back.”

Of course they had to. This was Max’s first convention, she should get to enjoy every moment of it. “I just need a little lie-down.” She was sure that was it.

“I don’t know.”

At the sad hesitation in Max’s voice, Solomon shook her head and pushed to her feet, regretting it almost immediately. She groaned, her soles killing her in her costume’s four-inch heels, and almost sat back down. But, damnit, this was her favorite time of year. It was her geek Halloween, her nerd Christmas. She was not going to spend it passed out on a hotel bed. She flexed her poor feet and gritted her teeth. “Let’s go.”

Fighting a giggle, Max waved Solomon back. “Sit down, you look like you’re about to fall over.” Max unzipped her boots and kicked them off. She wiggled her eyebrows. “How about a hot tub break?” She stood and began to take off the rest of her Captain Jolli Rouge costume. “Might as well take advantage of it, since we paid for it.”

“You’ll miss your panel,” Solomon warned.

Max shrugged and strode naked to the tub. “We’ve got a little bit of time.” She turned on the faucet, filling the tub with warm, steaming water that called out to Solomon. “Come on, badass Mermaid Queen of the Seven Seas, your bubbly berth awaits...”

My Playroom, My Rules! - Part One


Do Not Disturb - 
Part One

“Pop Goes the Weasel” played, the tinny sound filling the room.

Vera Hernadez raised an eyebrow and her fist clenched on the bug zapper in her hand. “Is that your phone?”

She narrowed her gaze at the beautiful, black woman trussed to her whipping post. Pip Jones’s long, lithe body cringed—as much as it could in the ropes anyway. She turned to face Vera and swallowed deeply. 

“I asked,” Vera said over the sing-song ring, pointing the toy at the woman, “is that your phone?”

Pip’s head bobbed in a tiny nod. “I’m so sorry, Ma’am.”

Sorry?

No, she wasn’t sorry. Not yet.

But, by the end of this, she would be.

Vera tsked. “You know my number one rule.” She walked around the post, letting the hatched metal of the toy’s head drag threateningly over Pip’s bared flesh. “No phones.” It was an easy one to remember. And came with a punishment neither of them would forget. “You know what comes next, don’t you?”

Pip’s head whipped back so far it looked like it hurt. Her eyes were wide and her breath wheezed nervously. “You wouldn’t!”

Vera’s jaw clenched as she drew the toy under Pip’s chin, forcing the other woman’s head up to meet her narrowed eyes. She raised an eyebrow at Pip. “So you’re telling me what to do now?”

“No!” Pip shook her head so hard, her whole body struggled against the ropes. “No, Ma’am. No, of course not, but—”

“Then you know,” Vera said sharply, turning on her heels toward Pip’s things, “my playroom, my rules.” She set the bug zapper aside before bending down to root around in Pip’s purse. She found the now silent phone in one of the pockets. Plucking it up, she thumbed the screen to light. “Hmmm.” She pursed her lips at the text message. “Looks like work needs you.” She flicked the screen to the camera. “Well, they’re about to get all of you.”

“Wait!” Pip was struggling hard now, the ropes pinching into her limbs. “Just wait. I’ll turn it off, I swear—”

“Too late.” It was one of Vera’s few hard, non-negotiable limits. At the beginning of every negotiation, she made sure to tell every partner that they were to leave their phones and devices at home or in their car. To ensure out of sight and out of mind, she didn’t even want them in the building.

Every bottom, every sub, was warned, if they didn’t comply, the phone would not only be confiscated during the scene.

It would become part of the scene.

Vera grinned cruelly and pointed the phone at Pip’s gorgeously tied up form. “Smile.”

“Wait!”

She snapped the picture.

Then two more. Making sure to get clear shots of Pip’s cringing face. “Your boss is going to love getting these shots.” She took another. “Not to mention all your friends. Your family.” Her whole list of contacts.

“You wouldn’t.” Pip shut her eyes. “You can’t.”

Vera clucked her tongue. “No,” she shook her head and said, “you’re right.” She lowered the phone and walked toward Pip. She touched Pip’s bound shoulders and back soothingly, reverently. She could see those pretty, slim shoulders heave with relief.

“What fun is it to send everyone pre-scene pictures?” Vera’s smile felt sharp and full of anticipation. She wanted to run her tongue over Pip’s flushed flesh as the woman’s eyes widened sweetly with thick fear. There was something else sparking in Pip’s wild gaze too, some thrilling feeling like reckless lust that made Vera’s mouth water. “It’ll be more fun to send them the post-scene ones...”

Selling Your Special - My Pen to Pen Guest Blog

What makes one story stand out over another? Why does a publisher pick up or pass on a given submission? What makes a reader interested in knowing more about your characters and what they’re going through?

These can seem like unanswerable questions. And they kind of are. Who knows why anyone does anything?

But a friend of mine once asked me why I seemed to be having more luck with story submissions than she was. I thought about it for a moment and realized that, despite my awkwardness and inability to get people to like me in most social situations, I’m really good at grabbing someone’s attention in a letter to an editor.

Because I know who I am as a writer.

I know exactly what my stories are.

I can clearly articulate what makes me and my stories stand out in an oversaturated genre like erotica....

We Are Not Unsafe

I hate this kind of rhetoric:

"Kink is not a sexual orientation. It is simply how someone enjoys having sex, not about who they participate in it with. Comparing kink to being gay minimizes being gay down to only having sex when it is so much more than that. People have not been fighting over the past few decades to only have sex with whatever gender they want. There is no need to fight about that because that could be done in secret. It is about love. It is about being able to express that love in public without criticism: holding hands, going on dates, marriage, just the simplest forms of loving one another. It is not about how a couple has sex." 


While I am not equating the LGBT experience with the kink experience--they are not the same, not historically or socially or psychically--there are similarities and crossover.

Kinksters, throughout history, have been stigmatized and diagnosed as psychiatrically sick because of who we are. I don't know any kinkster who didn't grow up being raised to think there was something deeply wrong with them. We've been shunned from all kinds of spaces, from religious spaces to medical spaces, from queer spaces to feminism, to being denied housing and employment. Thanks to doxxing, our lives get turned upside-down, from having our jobs, our homes, our kids, our friends and families taken away from us because someone found out what we do and who we are. And not "due to inappropriate behavior" but because someone found out something personal about us and decided it was okay to shame and punish us for things we should never be shamed or punished for. And thanks to that shame we're less likely to seek outside help when we do experience problems, like abuse or injury, from cops, shrinks, doctors, or even loved ones, because society is convinced--and often convinces us--that, because of who we are and what we do, we deserve all ills that we get.

And our love is CONSTANTLY being reduced to nothing more than how we have sex. Never mind the complex and valid social structures and emotional connections that are unique to kinksters. Never mind the added amount of care and communication we share that is required of our kind of love. To too many people, we are nothing but a series of inappropriate acts and toys.

We're constantly being misrepresented in society. Being portrayed as nothing more than monsters and victims or punchlines. Even the times when we're portrayed in the positive, more often than not, it's in a titillating and inaccurate way that glorifies the aspects of us that the world sees as strange and glosses over the humanity the world views as less entertaining and certainly less profitable. We're treated as circus acts or zoo exhibits or mythological beings, which sounds exotic and fun until you realize that we'd rather seen as people, with real lives and real partners.

And then there's the claim that we make spaces unsafe.

Uncomfortable? Sure.

Complicated? Absolutely.

I will be the first to admit that our open and unashamed presence in polite society--our desire to not be shoved into bedrooms and closets--is cause for a lot of awkward conversation.

But, like I said, we kinksters LOVE us some in-depth communication and comprehensive education.

And thank goodness we do.

We've been instrumental in changing and re-shaping the language of consent in our culture. We've open doors to talking about sexuality--for women, men, and people of all genders--in a way no other community has. We've been advocates for the fight for better sexual education and healthcare and welfare for people who don't fit the norm, from the LGBTQ+ community to sex workers.

We've made sex and love and relationships better for countless people. We've made sex and love and relationships safer and less taboo for countless people.

What we do and who we are may make you uncomfortable, but the last thing we've done is make you less safe.
