Exciting News! New fantasy menage out soon!

It’s that time again! I blighted literature once more by attempting to write something. For those of you who are into that sort of thing (books, I mean), there’s a new one coming out this Easter weekend, and it’s a cracker.

It’s a fairytale story set in a magical kingdom about a golden-haired princess who wants to marry a blacksmith, and an evil queen who isn’t so evil after all, and a knight who tries to rescue the princess, because he gets a bit confused. They’re all over 18, of course (I mention this because you can never tell with princesses), and much spanking and menage-y goodness ensues.

I haven’t got a blurb for it yet, so I took the liberty of writing one myself:

When valiant knight Cedric arrives at the evil queen Elspeth’s castle ready to rescue the princess Leandrina, he is in for a big surprise. Not only is the princess not kidnapped, she is in fact set on marrying a handsome blacksmith, Ben, and they’re both very good friends with the evil queen, who isn’t so very evil after all. But Cedric faces a dilemma; he was promised half the kingdom as well as Lea’s hand in marriage if she were safely returned to her father, the king of a nearby country. While Cedric is¬†happy for Lea to marry whomever she likes, he needs that money to rescue his brother who is being held ransom. When the queen canes him and imprisons him in her dungeon for attempting to steal Lea away, he is at a loss about how to rescue his brother. To make matters worse, he finds he’s falling in love with the beautiful, dominant queen Elspeth, who appears to also be in love with Lea and Ben. But when Cedric finds his own dominant side starting to emerge, can he find it within himself to command respect from a princess and a queen?

In a nearby cottage, Princess Leandrina is struggling to learn her new role in life. She cast aside her upper class life in a castle, preferring to live in the village with her beloved, dominant blacksmith Ben. When she jeopardizes that, however, Ben shows her that he has no compunction about bending her over the kitchen table and administering strict discipline to her bared bottom. No matter how hard she fights Ben, Elspeth and Cedric, she will be shown how to submit to them. Only then can she find her happily ever after. 

Will any of them get together? Obviously!* It’s more of a question of how often, with whom, and (since Cedric and Elspeth are both switches) in what configuration! I’ll leave that for you to speculate upon, until the book comes out.

*This is romance; a happy ending is guaranteed, unless you’re JoJo Moyes or David Nicholls, who incidentally are¬†persona non grata on my bookshelf. I want my happily ever after to be iron-clad¬†with none of that depressing people-die-at-the-end nonsense.

Lastly, I’ve seen the cover art for this one, and OH MY FREAKING GOD IT IS BREATHTAKING. I still don’t know what the title’s going to be, so once I’ve got a picture of the cover art with the finalized title, you’ll be the first to know what it looks like!

Lots of love,

Adult Baby Review: ThinkBaby Stainless Steel Bottle

The ThinkBaby stainless steel bottle¬†is aimed at chronological children, but it’s also¬†perfect for adult babies and ageplay. I’ve had one for about 3 months now, so here’s my review of the ThinkBaby stainless steel¬†bottle.

Teat: It’s not really a sippy cup (it was listed as a sippy cup before, but since I got mine¬†they’ve actually renamed it as a bottle). As you can see from the photos of the mouthpiece, it’s got a squishy soft teat (like baby bottles) but it’s wider and flatter than a normal bottle teat, which means it’s aimed at people with teeth (it’s comparable to an adult pacifier). The teat is latex-free so anyone with a latex allergy can use it! It’s also BPA free, but I don’t really understand what that means. When you fill it with liquid, it behaves like a baby bottle too, and it doesn’t spill when you lie it on its side or turn it upside down. I use it when I want to lie down and drink something in bed because you can stop drinking to breathe without spilling anything.

Hot drinks: The main cup area is made of stainless steel. This basically means you can put warm drinks in it. HOWEVER, because it’s metal, the cup area will expand if you put a boiling hot drink in it, and the plastic of the screw top won’t expand, so be sure to allow really hot drinks to cool down enough before you put the screw top back on the bottle or it will spill (a lot) when you try to drink from it (this has happened to me a couple of times as I keep forgetting and¬†making hot tea in it).

Capacity: It takes 290ml (10 fl oz) of liquid, which is the perfect size for an adult drink. I really like the fact that there are measurements engraved down the side of the bottle. If it was any bigger, I’d struggle to hold it up while I was drinking from it, so I think it’s the exact right size.

The measurements are engraved into the cup so you can choose how much to fill it.

Handles: The handles are kinda small (although I do have freakishly large, oddly manly hands, so it may work for most women) so men and any women with strangely big hands like mine will have a little trouble using the handles. They are removable however.

Price: It’s a lot more expensive than any of the other sippy cups I’ve seen, but since it’s metal there’s no chance I can accidentally melt it by putting something in it that’s the wrong temperature! As an adult baby bottle, though, it’s comparable with the other ones I’ve seen and it’s got the bonus of being latex free and not having a weirdly long teat.

Verdict: I love my sippy cup/bottle so much; I had a cheap plastic one from a local shop before I ordered the ThinkBaby stainless steel one from Amazon.com, and I love the ThinkBaby one SO MUCH more. It’s not available to buy outside the US as far as I know,¬†but they do international shipping which is perfect for those of us who aren’t in America! Find it here on amazon.com

10 Real Life Facts About Her Daddy and Her Master

Here¬†are the facts behind my latest novel¬†Her Daddy and Her Master.¬†I thought I’d do another one of these because the one about Mastered by the Highlanders went down so well.

  1. The bathrooms in Her Daddy and Her Master were inspired by Japanese bathrooms. The Japanese have definitely cornered the market on awesome bathroom design, while in the North of England, where I’m currently at grad school, my house (like, where I live right now) still has an outdoor toilet! It gets full of spiders and I hate cleaning it so very much. The big advantage of the outhouse is when Fed-Ex or Parcel Force have a delivery to make, they can leave it in there if I’m not home. I kinda fell in love with this house when I saw it because it looks a bit like Shrek’s swamp home, which I find endearing. I hope when I come to sell the place, the new owners think that’s a good thing too!
  2. Pombos is based on the industrial north of England during the 20th century. A lot of people think this sort of landscape¬†vanished when 1900 came around, but in the North, the world still looked like this¬†when I was a child, the only difference was there were laws about how much smoke a factory could put out. My stepdad, his parents and his sister all worked in a factory like this when I was growing up. Pombos¬†was particularly inspired by some of LS Lowry’s pictures:

  3. The Great Gig is inspired by¬†a song on the album The Dark Side of The Moon by Pink Floyd. The full title of the song is The Great Gig in The Sky but in my story, it’s a spaceship, and¬†it sort of goes without saying that it’s in the sky, so I shortened it. A gig is also a type of vehicle, so the whole thing¬†sort of fitted.
  4. The adult baby store was an imagining of what all the online stores for ABDL and ageplay stuff (for example, my favorite ageplay store, Little for Big, or the currently-closed furniture store, Adult Baby Apparels) would look like, if any of them had a physical store. Since the story was set in the future, I tried to think about how things like cribs and sippy cups might have changed in the future, as well as how things might have been inspired by other cultures on different planets.
  5. The Innovation Suites were, of course, inspired by the Holodecks from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
  6. Flin was partly inspired by a very good friend who sadly died unexpectedly back in September. I miss them every day, and I hope they approve.
  7. The belt that Flin fastens around Laila to hold the vibrators inside her during one of her punishments was based on female chastity belts that are available. The way Flin used it on Laila, however, was anything but chaste.¬†There don’t seem be many for sale online at the moment and this one from Lovehoney was the closest I could find. I like to imagine that 300 years into the future, such things will be comfortable and readily available, and that there will be lots of versions to buy.
  8. The balls that Flin puts inside Laila are called Ben Wa balls and you can buy them in most online adult stores. This is an example from Lovehoney.
  9. The way the ship stops is based on my experience as a crew member on yachts and narrowboats. I remember the first time I was moving an engine powered boat, when I was fifteen (how I ended up on a boat that day is a whole different story); I pulled away from the jetty, then I panicked a little, as we headed too fast toward the boats on the other side of the marina. Scared of crashing and sinking, I asked, “Where’s the brakes?” Just in time, the man who owned the boat stepped in and showed me what to do. That was when I learned that¬†boats don’t actually have brakes, you have to put them into reverse to make them stop. It was probably really obvious to the rest of the world, but never mind. I decided that spaceships would probably have to do the same, since they wouldn’t be able to drift to a halt in space.
  10. The tea party (if you haven’t read that far yet, I won’t spoil it for you) was based on The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in Alice in Wonderland.
