At long last – the Strummed Cover reveal!

I’ve been working on this project for a long time and I’m so excited that it’s just a couple weeks away from being in print.

Strummed - cover-med

I’ve gotten word that my story, Well Played, will be the first story in the collection. I’m absolutely tickled that the publisher has so much confidence in my story.

Well Played is one of the longest stories I’ve published, and it’s easily one of my favorites. I had a lot of flexibility about what to write – as long as I stayed within a musical theme – and so I got to really stretch my storytelling muscles.

The ebook should be available at the end of the month, with print copies following a week after. I’ll update you as soon as I have firm dates and buy links. I might even do some kind contest or giveaway for this book – please leave me a comment if you have an idea for an interesting contest!

News about another publication is coming soon – stay tuned!

xoxo,
Stella

Review: Balancing the Books by Lucy Felthouse

You’ve heard me talk a lot about the Big Book of Bondage – and that’s because I’m very excited about this collection and absolutely thrilled to be a part of it. Every story is a gem and I’m honored to be keeping such good company.

To give you a tease, here’s my review of Lucy Felthouse’s delicious story; Balancing the Books.

From the first line of the story, we’re immersed in the world – and the predicament – that Philip, the main character, finds himself in. That world is a delightful bookshop and if you – like me – have a thing for books, this story will be a double treat.

Lucy does an amazing job of getting into the mind of the character; of explaining what it’s like to live in the head of a submissive who is painfully eager to please. And that’s just the beginning of the realism that Lucy brings to her characters. They are objects in a fantasy while still ringing true as people.

In addition to all the story’s other charms, it’s refreshing to see a female dominant / male submissive story – especially one that’s done so well.

Lucy explores the mental and emotional aspects of bondage – she shows that the command to hold still can be even more binding than the tightest rope.

Lucy’s writing balances hot and sexy with light and fun – making her story an absolute pleasure to read.
