Here’s a Snippet for Saturday Spankings! LOL

Here’s a snippet for Saturday Spankings from Michaela’s Debut, Book 1 of The Black Dahlia Hotel Series.   We all love a good spanking.  Author’s post a spanking from one of their books on their blog. I hope you enjoy it.

Here’s the snippet:

He sat down on the bed and pulled her onto his lap. “Speaking of punishments…” That stern look on his handsome face always got to her. She could feel herself dampening.

“Wait Dill…can’t we make love instead?”

“Afterwards.” He pulled her over his lap, pushed her slacks and bikini underwear down around her knees, and proceeded to spank her butt. Oh, no. It’s going to be one of those ‘no counting’ spankings. Those always hurt the most because he didn’t stop until her butt was good and red. She didn’t even try to keep count. His hand came down on her bottom with a vengeance, his palm landing with stinging strikes on her upraised butt. She could feel the skin heating up. She began to struggle, but he put his leg over hers and held her tight while he continued to put a fine polish on her cheeks. She knew his hand must hurt as well when he finally stopped. He shook it out. “Damn, that stings. What do you have to say, sub?”

“I’m sorry, Master. I won’t leave you again without talking about it first.”

“Wrong, subbie. You won’t be leaving me again at all.”

“Yes, Master.” The tears were still streaming down her cheeks when he pulled her up into his arms and held her against his solid chest.

Check out my Author Interview on USA TODAY’s HEA Blog!

Here is the link for my author interview on USA TODAY’s Romance Blog, Happy Ever After.

USA TODAY INTERVIEW 9-1-16     http://happyeverafter.usatoday.com/2016/09/01/skye-michaels-interview-quinns-secret-gifts/

I am so excited. Whodathunk it a few short years ago when I started on this crazy merry-go-round? It’s been so much fun along the way, and now I am working on Book #35 – Isabella’s Pirate Dom. I like to go back and forth between the Male/female and Male/male books. When I started my Male/male series, The Wilton Park Grand Hotel series, the publisher thought I might be making a mistake, and that this new path would alienate my Male/female readers. That has not turned out to be the case, and I am glad. I hope some of you from each camp will take a chance and read something from the other series. As I always say: Love is love, sex is sex (except for some mechanical differences) and relationships are relationships. If you don’t have a good story, you don’t have a book no matter how much sex there is. Happy reading on this blustery Labor Day weekend! I hope all of you are safe. I hope my beloved house in Ocala is still standing when I get there on Saturday.

ARE YOU A BINGE READER? DO YOU NEED AN INTERVENTION?

I have to admit that I, myself, need a twelve-step program. I think I might start one—maybe I’ll call it Sexy Book Readers Anonymous! That could go two ways: A the reader is sexy, or B the reader is reading sexy books. Either way, it’s a winner.

I just finished ordering seven books for my Kindle. I read the first free one, and low and behold, there was another free one. Then…I downloaded six more by the same author. I admit it. I am a binge reader. If I enjoy that first book, I’m destined to read them all—and in order, thank you very much.

I recently read a series that I really enjoyed, only to find out that that author’s publisher had encouraged her to write other books set in the same locale and with a lot of the same characters with a co-author. Those books were published under the other author’s name first so I did not know about them. That scenario created a ton of confusion for me, and I ended up reading the books OUT OF ORDER. I WAS NOT HAPPY!   Things were happening off the time line. People were couples who had not yet gotten together. Disasters had happened and I didn’t know about them.

You won’t find that in my series (see the Bookshelf on the website www.skyemichaelsbooks.com). I like to have a good, sexy story with a happy ending and all plot lines wrapped up before the end of the series. If you’d like to try a Skye Michaels series, I would suggest starting with The Black Iris Club. It’s only four books. The heroines are two cops and two attorneys and their stories intermingle, although all the books are stand alone. The BDSM sex is hot, and the stories are good: dealing with a serial killer, human trafficking, gang violence and veterans’ PTSD issues. I have always felt that if you don’t have a good story, you don’t have a book—no matter how much sex there is or how hot.

I hope you will give Kaylin, Chloe, Gabby and Nikki a chance!

IT’S HORSE RACING SEASON at Skye Michaels Books!

IT’S HORSE RACING SEASON! Non-horse lovers may call it Spring, but they are deluded. The 142nd Kentucky Derby Run For the Roses was last week at Churchill Downs, Lexington, Kentucky, and the winner was Nyquist. The Kentucky Derby is the longest running American sports event. If you love drama, there is always a ton of drama surrounding the Derby – and lots of beautiful horses and beautiful people to watch.

Check out my LeClub Series for some Hot, Sexy, Good Stories set in Ocala, Florida, the Horse Capital of the World (according to Ocalaites anyway! Some other locales may differ on that opinion).   I hope you will read Madison and Ross’s story in Madison’s Choice, Book 5, and Belinda and Matt’s story in Belinda’ Crown, Book 6, which are set against the drama of the Kentucky Derby and the Triple Crown. No spoiler here, but this is ROMANCE people!

I hope you will give these books a try and get into the mood for this year’s best horse races! Hopefully Nyquist will go all the way for Triple Crown like last year’s winner, American Pharoah who broke the long standing record and actually became the 12th Triple Crown winner in history!

HOT AND SEXY BDSM IN OCALA, FL- IMPOSSIBLE YOU SAY?

The Le Club Series

50 Shades of Hay Pic3_nSKYE-MICHAELS-BOOKS-ROMANCE-BDSM-SEX-FLORIDA-LE-CLUB

I had a wonderful day yesterday in lovely Rainbow Springs State Park with my family who are on Easter break. See the pictures below.  Yes the water is that blue and clear.  400 MILLION gallons of water pump out of the springs every day at the head waters of the Rainbow River and the temperature is 72 degrees year round.  BRRR.  I’m a hot cookie so that  is too cold for me!  LOL, but not the kids who swam all day between eating fried chicken and potato salad and watermellon.  This is the real Florida, just as described in my Le Club series set in the exciting world of thoroughbred racing and other horse venues.  The stories center around six couples and the sexy, secret BDSM club located in the historic section of downtown Ocala.  (Read the excerpts in the Book Shelf section of the website.)   Impossible you say?  Not at all as I have spoken with some folks in the BDSM lifestyle who actually live in Ocala, Florida.  The stories are hot, sexy and just plain good romance.  I hope you will give them a try – especially if you love horses (and hot sexy stories) like I do.  Book 5 and 6 are about the Kentucky Derby and the Triple Crown!  Very timely.  And don’t forget to check out my NAUGHTY TOY SCAVENGER HUNT CONTEST (See the Blog below!)   Have a great weekend and do something special with your friends or family!  –  Skye

SOME ADVICE FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE WRITERS – Which Applies to All Genres – Certainly Not Just Erotic Romance

Recently I have spoken with several people who told me they also wanted to write and asked how to get started. My best advice is just TO START.  Write something.  Open a directory on your computer and start a Notes page.  Think about your plot as you drive to and from work.   Jot down character studies, location ideas, plot ideas.  Get something – anything – on paper.   That’s what editing is for, to make sense of your crazy first draft.

 

Some writers outline every nuance and plot twist chapter by chapter spending days or weeks getting it just right before they ever write a word. I have written thirty books, and I have never done an outline. I might have an idea for a plot:  Girl goes on BDSM cruise with her girlfriend.   Across the deck she sees the guy who stood her up for prom fifteen years ago and broke her little teenage heart.   That’s it.  Write Chapter One and GO.  That is the plot for Cassandra’s Revenge, Book 4 of The Golden Dolphin Series.  I have to say it’s one of my favorite books.  Who among us hasn’t had her little heartbroken at one time or another and wanted some payback.  Well, here I got it for all of us.

 

In Violette’s Vibrato, Book 3 of the Golden Dolphin series, my heroine (First Violin with the NY Philharmonic) was in trouble with a guy in the Russian Mob.  The story was coming along well.  The Hero and heroine were great together.  AND THEN I didn’t know how to finish it off.  How the heck was I going to solve the problem?  How do you get rid of the Russian mob?  It wasn’t any easier in my book than I expect it would be in real life.  I thought and thought (this is the part where I wish I’d outlined) and then one morning I woke up early and just knew what to do.  My subconscious had worked out a solution.  I rushed to jot it down – if I don’t my brilliant ideas drift off into space never to be seen again.

 

It really doesn’t matter how you approach the project. The outliner spends a ton of time getting ready to write.  The pantster just goes for it.  Either way, you have to spend the time.  I sometimes find that in the middle of a book I don’t know where I’m going or what to do next.  Then I have to spend the time figuring it out that the outliner has already invested.   Six of one – half a dozen of another.   The trick is to JUST DO IT.  Find the method that suits you best.  Try both and see how it goes.  Just get started if it has always been your dream.  Turn lemons into lemonade.   I lost my job and gained a whole new career.  A door closes and a window pops open…and all those clichés.  They are clichés for a reason.

 

Writing is fun. Every day is something new, and I get to share the adventures of all my characters (I love the girls  like children, the guys I just love!).  My series, The Black Iris Club, starts with Kaylin’s Pursuit, the story of a homicide detective in Fort Lauderdale (my home town) who during the course of an investigation of a serial killer meets and falls in love with the sexy and rich (they always are – who wants real life?) Dom, Jack Dalton Brown.  He owns a BDSM club in the penthouse of the building where the body was found.  Kaylin goes into the club undercover to root out the serial killer.  That’s all I knew when I started.  The four books of the series also include: Chloe’s Rescue (human trafficking), Gabriella’s Prosecution (gang violence), and Nicollette’s Defense (PTSD and veteran’s issues).

 

The one thing you really need is a good story. Without a story, you don’t have a book.  If it’s only about sex, the reader (and I include myself in that group because I also read) gets bored and loses interest.  If you have a good story, they will want to read the story even if some just glance over the sex.

 

Another saying is “write the book you want to read.” Well I have done that thirty times and I’m not tired of it yet – so give writing a try if you think you might like it.  I hope you will sign up for my Blog, follow me on Twitter at @skyemichaels and check out my fan page on Facebook, Skye Michaels Books.  I love to hear from readers, so drop me a line and let me know what you like and what you don’t (not so much the what you don’t – LOL). – Skye Michaels
