I Flove writing. I had voices in my head and stories I had to get out.
Romance was the best bet to make it. Because the majority of authors will never make enough to support themselves. Fortunately, I now do. But that can change in the blink of an eye. It might change after I make this blog post public. I hope not, but it could happen, and I never take that shit for granted. Not for one minute. If you want it bad enough, you can get it. I get mine off too, in the phantom variety as I make a jerk off motion in the air and usually toss the splooge right at the profile picture before I scroll on and go about my day.
I may even make sound effects. Well, yeah it kind of does. See, the indie community, especially in romance is very tight-knit Should that be hyphenated? Thanks for understanding.
And it is almost entirely female authors. And contrary to whatever the daddy dom might think, daddy dom needs the support of other authors. Look, this is my opinion and nobody is forced to agree with it, but this is my blog so I can write what I want. That is disrespectful to women.
And women are your core audience. And yeah, it affects me because I unfortunately fall under the category of male author with you, and I honestly look down and wish I had a vagina when I see it. So, do males have an advantage? Umm, yes. We have an advantage. A female author could not pull that off and get sales. I struggle with this one so much, because I absolutely love writing this genre. But a quick little history lesson on Wikipedia will show you that this world is not fair to women.
I was an accountant. There are some women still old enough to be able to remember that time. The shit even happens in the free world. Yeah, shit is not even close to being equal. And our readers are global, and some are living this every day. Romance books are one of the few things in the world that belong to them. Fortunately, they are a bit more kind, for the most part, and willing to share that with us men, if we treat them with the respect and dignity that they deserve, and acknowledge these facts.
And like I said before this here is my blog. True story. The other day just this week, BT Urruela asked me to be a part of a Fraternity group on Facebook for male authors. I almost said no to him because of those last few paragraphs and really this whole message here of being labeled as a male author. I get to make a living and achieve my dream of being a full-time author. I get to stay at home with my son and watch Chuggington with him as I type this post instead of pounding on a ten key in a cubicle. He gets sick a lot and I get to take care of him.
I was so skeptical though about the group sort of labeling me as a male author. But it was BT. How do you say no to BT? It was an opportunity for me personally, to maybe help make things better, and lead by example to show that not all male erotic romance authors are cocky assholes trying to take over a female led industry. It was better than sitting on the sidelines and watching the problem possibly get worse as more and more authors flood into the indie world.
So yesterday, I did a challenge in the group to dare the other guys to post a throwback picture with the most inspirational women in their life. Mine was my wife. Some of them chose their spouse or their mother, some of the guys are straight, some are gay. But I did that challenge so that readers and other authors would see how important women are some male authors, and how these special women in our lives shaped and molded us into men that respect them.
And I think the readers really enjoyed that. At least I hope they did. I hope other authors who may be on the fence about male authors saw it and appreciated it, and maybe it gave them a little hope that there are decent guys writing romance, who grew up with strong women in their lives. I know I grew up with several. But the entire point of this post comes back to the few paragraphs above regarding equality and how grateful I am to female authors for opening the door for me. They could shun me. They could not help cross promote my releases, or invite me to their author events and signings.
If they banded together, they could easily drive me back into a cubicle of misery. They hold that power over me. So to my female colleagues and mentors, thank you once again for that gift. I will never take it for granted. I hope to spend many years writing alongside you and us helping each other out as the landscape of the written word changes.
Daddy told me not to even look at the man in the corner. I wanted to do more than look at him.
I grew up in the church. I was raised better. And I was broken. Oh, was I ever broken. A thirst in me that only sin could quench. I needed him, the man in the corner, to claim me, dominate me, own me. Goad him if necessary. I needed that man like I needed air or water. I needed the bad boy.

More news to come soon. My hand tore through the air and slapped the shit out of the cocky son of a bitch. The bright pink finger marks on the side of his cheek brought a smile to my face.
I bent over and dug my nails into his scalp, then slid my breasts up his hard pecs. I leaned back, grinding my pelvis into him. My tits bounced as my ass clapped into his muscular thighs and my pussy spasmed around his thick shaft. Nerve firings were building in my clit and radiating to my inner thighs. Vaulted ceilings amplified the sound of the headboard banging into the wall. The din seemed to fuel Damon as he drilled into me.
The black wig on my head draped around my shoulders and danced to the rhythm of his cock. I convulsed as the orgasm ripped through my body. My hips jolted and I clamped down on him like a vise. Freezing on top of him, my toes curled and my thighs dug into his ribs as I struggled to breathe. His beaming gaze transformed to a puzzled frown. Beads of sweat dripped from his flaring nostrils and his breathing intensified. He lurched at me, eyes full of hate, powerful arms ready to inflict pain.
The restraints tightened, jarring him backward. You stupid bitch! I put a finger to his lips. I gripped his head and snapped his neck. I heard the familiar pop and his torso went limp, his arms dangling from the bedposts. Sliding off the bed, I pulled on my tight black leather pants and a form-fitting shirt. My lacy black mask was next. I slipped it over my eyes and tied it in the back. A gothic floral design covered the majority of my face. I grabbed my steel knives and strapped them to my waist before turning to his lifeless body. You were right. I really am a bitch.
The bedroom door creaked when I eased it open. Goddamn it. On the floor below, two guards conversed, each holding a Kalashnikov. I crept swiftly down the long hallway, blending with the shadows, remaining hidden without making a sound. The compound was massive and I had assholes to kill.
Guard seven went on break at the same time every night, and I needed to be in position in five minutes to capitalize on that fact.
