I'm also excited about the fact that His Domain, an anthology I'm a part of, is a finalist for a Golden Flogger Award. Each story centers around the Playroom. Mmmmm

THE END OF SUMMER

The end of summer is always bittersweet for me. I love the lazy days of the season, with no schedules, homework, or rushing around in the mornings to make sure my son gets to school on time. Spontaneous pool parties happen at a moment's notice, barbecues with a bit too much wine and beer, forgotten sunscreen. Summer makes me feel like a kid again.

This summer was eventful for a number of reasons. I released my very first erotic romance, The Submissive Muse, which is getting great reviews.



I fell in love for the first time in 15 years with an old boyfriend I dated 35 years before. (I know!) And I actively started going through menopause, instead of simply flirting with it. (Always hugely exciting for a woman. Ahem.)

But alas, I haven't done any writing on a new book and it's time for ASS IN CHAIR. So I bid the sweet summer adieu and vow to not take 3 months to get back into the swing of things.

Here's hoping you all had a deliciously sexy summer!

Love is love is love by Jennifer Kacey

I write a little bit of everything. Seriously....everything. Oh, wait, except historical because it sucks my soul out. :)
But everything else is a big YES!!

I write menage...Jenna's Consent - http://jenniferkacey.com/books/mo-series/jenna-s-consent.html

And do you know what I've learned with writing a little bit of everything? Love is love is love. That. It's truly THAT simple. Everyone wants to be loved. Everyone wants to find their happily ever after and be able to be themselves. And everyone should have that right.

So simple....."If you can't say nothing nice then don't say nothing at all." Thumper

Decadently Yours,
Jennifer Kacey

Fairy Tale Adaptations

The adaptation of fairy tales isn’t something new. This summer, I’ve been teaching a college poetry class, and Anne Sexton is one author we’ve discussed. As a feminist author, tackled several of the tales (re-imagined by Disney). One is Cinderella.

Here’s the opening:

Anne Sexton, "Cinderella"

You always read about it:
the plumber with the twelve children
who wins the Irish Sweepstakes.
From toilets to riches.
That story.

Or the nursemaid,
some luscious sweet from Denmark
who captures the oldest son's heart.
from diapers to Dior.
That story.

It’s a Cinderella tale, right? In fact, the story is so pervasive there is an effect called “Cinderella Syndrome,” where woman wait for that prince to come along. Or, on another take on the radio this week, the hosts mentioned “the California fairytale of winning the lottery.” (Are we the only state that dreams about it? LOL.)

In any case, a student mentioned how one generation often backlashes against the one prior, so Sexton was writing in response to the Disney-fied versions. That not may be the case. Have you seen how violent the originals were?

The Brothers Ménage is a take off the tale Two Brothers. The original Grimm’s story is short and violent. There’s no romance. What I took from the story, though, is the concept of two brothers being left in the woods, and eventually finding love.

There were some major challenges to overcome from the original. But you’ll have to read it to find out how I did it!

If you like retold fairy tales, especially those naughty ones, check out Once Upon a Promo, and enter for the chance to win an Echo Dot.


The Brothers Ménage

Who says all fairytale princesses are cursed?

Blessed with the ability to shift on the first three days of the New Moon, Princess Daphne vows to find a romantic connection before her father locks her into a loveless, arranged marriage.

Twins Cliff and Jacob know all the animals in the forest, until they come across shifter Daphne, who appears to them in different forms before transforming into a human.

As time runs out, the brothers from the wrong side of the tracks must weigh if a lifetime with Daphne is worth sharing their own secret, and if it’ll make a difference. 


Louisa Bacio

About the Author:
A Southern California native, Louisa Bacio can’t imagine living far away from the ocean. The multi-published author of erotic romance enjoys writing within all realms – from short stories to full-length novels.

Bacio shares her household with a supportive husband, two daughters growing “too fast,” and a multitude pet craziness: Two dogs, five fish tanks, an aviary, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs and hermit crabs. In her other life, she teaches college classes in English, journalism and popular culture.

Orlando was hot and wet- RWA Nationals with Anna Alexander

Happy August Gals and Pals!

It's Thursday and I'm still recovering from an amazing trip to Orlando for the Romance Writers of America national conference. I was able to combine some vacation time with the Chicklets with the business side of the publishing industry. You better believe it was non-stop action for a busy twelve days!

This has been an interesting year with life competing with writing and production time. That is why immersing myself in the writing community was so important. I was reminded of the joy of bring the story to the masses while I reconnected with my writing friends. It's always a good time when Danielle Monsch, Carmen Cook, Gina Fluharty, Cheryl Kennedy, Heather Long, and Saranna DeWylde (to name a few) are around.

But you know me. I love pictures! Here's a few of my favorite memories.

The adorable Cheryl Kennedy

Those famous 2pm thunderstorms


Cocktail hour!
Who am I kidding, it was cocktail week!
I was at Hogwarts!
