Folks, there’s been a lot of really unhappy news coming from Fergusson, Missouri lately. I hope you find the ugliness as disturbing as I do. So in an effort to ‘give peace a chance’, I’m sharing (with her permission) this email exchange that I had with Alexa Day about two weeks back.
»> I’m noticing an increase in the stats on my interracial posts. I’d like to…

Ladies and other naughty readers, today we have a treat for you–BROUGHT TO HIS KNEES is an anthology of eleven scorching stories about hot hard heroes brought to their knees by love.
Sabrina York and Lynne Silver–both authors included in the anthology–are here to roll their eyes, and trash talk about how ‘the harder they come the harder they fall.’

Thinking about Alexa Day’s alternate history steampunk-inspired short story Turnabout Day this week has got me feeling the heat. Steamy, glorious, sultry heat. Her story, after all, is set in Jamaica in August – a place so hot even fire starts to sweat. Before writing this post I looked up the forecast in Kingston. “Dangerous heat index. Limit outdoor exposure.” It’s 91…

I’m so happy to be asked to be a part of Read a Romance Month (RARM) blogger day, especially during the week when we at Lady Smut are acknowledging one of our own—Alexa Day, whose short story “Turnabout” is published this week!
When I first started writing romance, I read about the “rules ” or “conventions” of the romance genre. Rules about which time periods and settings to write…
I relate to this on a spiritual level.

Even the most staunch feminist would have to admit we live in a remarkable (though imperfect) era of immense opportunity for women, an era in which the prestigious Fields Medal, the Nobel Prize of Mathematics, is awarded to a woman for the first time. Yet despite the many advances in women’s rights over the last century, hell over the last halfcentury, the idea of a woman…

On Friday, Musa Publishing launched Eros, its new line of erotic stories, and I’m proud to be one of the line’s first authors. My short story, “Turnabout Day,” will be released this Friday. Check out my smoking hot cover, friends!
The story takes place in a steam-driven alternate to Jamaican history. Turnabout Day is one of that world’s holidays, a day when the upper class serves its…

You know how it goes. There is the movie you want to see…and then there is the movies HE wants to see.
The boys-club, he-man movie, the ‘let me save you little lady’ summer blockbuster film.
Since compromise is the soul of virtue, you get dressed up and bring along yer cute little summer sweater with you because it’s going to be crazy-cold in the movie…

Hey, Lady Smut readers! I’m away this week in Finland so I’m leaving you with two things to keep you occupied until I return next Wednesday. Below is a post I wrote several months ago that I’m re-posting in case you missed it last time. And above is picture of a hot guy. Why? Because seriously, why not? ;-)
You may remember a post I wrote several months ago about frustrations…

You just never know, do you? I’m…

Some people think writer’s block is a myth and if you just get up and push through it, the block will resolve itself. You respect it and work with it even when you’d rather crawl back into bed give up on your dreams because today, it’s just too damn hard. But powering through isn’t always enough.
The view isn’t much different from up here.
One of the most whackadoodle…
