I’m delighted to welcome fellow Xcite author, Kitti Bernetti, to my site today to tell us a little about her brand new release, Search and Rescue.

Over to you Kitti…

I’m honoured to be here on your blog, thank you so much for inviting me. I write erotica with a heart. I hope to bring readers the sort of emotional romance that can bring you to tears but that is hot, hot, hot… And I’d like to share with you how I came up with one of my favourite heroes.

Now, don’t we all love a superhero? Those amazing guys who flash across our screens in lycra and capes saving towns, cities, even the world with their superhuman powers. But, bringing us back down to earth, I was struck one day when watching the news how we have superhero guys right in our midst, in our own cities, in our own towns. The news I was watching concerned a disaster which had struck a small American community. There on the screen were these great hunks of guys, the search and rescue crews, digging for hours, days even. Covered in mud, they were pulling people from under fallen rocks when all hope had disappeared. In the background were snow capped mountains and awesomely beautiful lakes. It was so gorgeous I decided I wanted to set a story there.

This got me to pondering on those men with their huge boots and massive chests and how it must be to be the strong one, to have everyone rely on you in a crisis. To have families desperate for you to find their loved ones. What’s more, I loved the phrase, ‘Search and Rescue,’ it encompassed strength and nurturing. I wondered what it would be like if one of those oh so capable guys had a hidden flaw, a weakness, a dreadful secret he couldn’t declare to the world. It fired my imagination to produce my own search and rescue hero, Gig Briggs, a man his community look on to save them and nurture them. Gig has his faithful friend, a former police dog Diesel and a beautiful girlfriend, Milandra. All should be perfect in his world. But I needed as an author, to give Gig a hard time. I needed to test him and put him through hell to have a good story. So, while he’s strong and invincible on the outside, it is his inner demons he cannot defeat. That’s where Dr Desree Cain comes in. She’s the renowned sex therapist he absolutely does not want to consult. And boy are they opposites. She’s a city woman, he’s a country boy. What’s more, she’s scared. Someone from her own dark past is hunting her down. That’s why she’s come to hide in this small mountain community. The last thing she needs is Gig Briggs getting under her skin and awakening her as a woman. That’s when things get hot, too hot to handle. For the last thing any therapist should do is fall for her client…

I absolutely loved writing this book, so much so that I might even take one of the other characters, Gig’s best friend Clint and give him his own book one day. But then that’s another story!

Take Control Tasty Taster: The Experiment…

2 Comments
March 23  |  eBooks, News  |   Kay Jaybee

The recent revamp of Yes Ma’am, my female domination/male submission anthology, reminded me that it has been a while since I shared anything from Take Control with you- my male domination/female submission anthology- and I do so like to be even handed…

Take-Control-Cov-12014

Blurb

Take Control: Stories of Male Domination/Female Submission is a collection of toe curlingly sexy tales of bondage and female submission from the pen of best selling writer Kay Jaybee. From a spankingly delicious Dinner With Tess, to a Staged public sex fantasy, an unforgettable alfresco hosing in Deluged, a kinky scientific Experiment, and the realisation of a long held threesome fantasy in The Necklace, Take Control offers five bite sized stories that will satisfy any lover quality erotica.

***

I’m going to tease you with a little taster today from The Experiment

They would follow his instructions to the letter. That was what she had claimed. Still, he was suspicious. It was probably all a con, a devious way of playing on his growing obsession. But it might not be – it might be genuine – he might get to see what he longed to see…

A petite, traditionally dressed, stunningly beautiful Malaysian girl led him into a dimly lit room. The scientist dropped his briefcase next to a comfortable wing-backed armchair, behind which was a small but well-stocked bar. Suspended from the ceiling, a state of the art camcorder pointed forwards, poised and ready to record all that was to follow. Tastefully tame classical music was being piped into the room via a number of wall speakers; speakers which he hoped would reveal some far more interesting sounds in the very near future.

About a metre in front of the chair, a large picture window had been fitted neatly between that room and the next, creating both a theatre and private audience auditorium. A thick red curtain was drawn across the other side of the glass, so that as yet the voyeur could witness nothing from the space beyond.

The hostess, hovering by the bar, gestured to the various bottles of spirits with a questioning glance. He selected a whiskey and, shrugging off his jacket, waited as a triple measure of amber liquid was sloshed into a cut-glass tumbler. With the drink, the girl passed him a white envelope, on which was written The Story Thus Far.

He sat down, fumbling open the letter with hasty fingers, and his eyes devoured the words: Shortly you will see Gail and Jade. Both have been fully appraised as to your requirements. They have been placed within the neighbouring room, secured as per your instructions.

Before your arrival, again as you requested, the girls were subjected to considerable concentrated arousal to the breasts alone, and had nipple clamps applied. Both females are now desperate for further attention. We hope you enjoy the performance. Sit back, relax, and enjoy. The Malaysian girl bowed and left.

Making himself as comfortable as possible, he sat in the chair, satisfied that – so far, at least – his wishes had been carried out.

This whole thing was an experiment: an exercise to discover how much attention needed to be applied to a woman’s breasts alone before climax overtook the subject. Any resulting arousal of his own, he had convinced himself, was coincidental, and of secondary importance to the enquiry…

If you’d like to buy this e-book, it is available from Amazon UK, Amazon.com, and all good e-retailers. (It is also available for Kobo, Nook and on iTunes)

Happy reading everyone,

Guest Post Chloe Thurlow: An Idiot’s Guide to Self-Publishing

I’m delighted to welcome Chloe Thurlow back to my site today, to tell us all about her adventure in self publishing. This thirteen month long odyssey has led to the production of her beautiful new novel, Katie in Love. (Look out for the giveaway at the end of the post!!)

Over to you Chloe…

An Idiot’s Guide to Self-Publishing

Self-publishing a novel is like walking the high wire between two tall buildings without a net and traffic roaring up at you from below. The experience is an adrenaline rush, exhilarating and terrifying.

Katie in Love cover small

Katie in Love is that novel. It took 13 months to write, twice as long as my earlier works, and gave me almost permanent stomach cramps. Giving birth to a book is likened to having a baby and I felt as if I were carrying a small school of dolphins.

Sleepless nights and self-doubt is the staff of life to a writer; so is skipping meals and overdoing the Spanish cava, my drink of choice, less bubbly and lighter than champagne. Oh, yes, and falling over. I don’t have stretch marks but I do have some bruises.

Katie in Love went through four editors, all of whom had different suggestions; editors are such egotists. Picking the bones from their flesh-eating comments left me each time with a leaner manuscript and I came to understand the axiom: the first secret of writing is cutting. You spend 9 hours writing 400 words and then 2 hours whittling them down to 200. Then you open a bottle of cava.

When the big boy publishers take your manuscript it’s like kidnapping your baby. They choose the cover, they decide on the publishing date, the marketing campaign (if any) and when you want to speak to someone, they are always on holiday in the South of France.

The covers of my other books have pictures of girls like photos in an old album of people you can no longer remember. Self-publishing Katie in Love meant I could choose the image. I went to the Shutterstock library and almost went blind studying more thousands of head shots. Having created Katie, I knew exactly what she looked like. Finding her in the crowd was intense and incredibly satisfying. Look at the illustration. That is Katie.

katie in love

My friend Polly Playford designed the cover. The blurb on the back cost another few bruises but, then, that’s what writing is, a battle to reach an impossible perfection. Marketing requires ceasing all other activities: no writing, no chatty phone calls, no lunches with mates. Marketing means being at the laptop 24/7 begging for reviews and asking nice people like Kay Jaybee to give you some space on her website.

What’s Katie in Love about?

Katie Boyd likes sex with strangers. No strings. She isn’t looking for love and doesn’t know if it’s what she wants when the feeling slowly starts to tingle and surface after that first night with Tom Bridge. Katie is a party girl drifting through the hip clubs and London party scene. Tom’s intense, caring, in the bedroom and in his concern for others. Katie’s world is turned upside down as she sets off on a journey of self discovery and change. In three weeks, Tom leaves for Sri Lanka, where he runs an orphanage, and Katie must decide whether to return to her old life or follow him into the unknown.

Present day relationships are as complex as the quickly changing world we live in. In Katie in Love, I set out to explore the intricacies of love, romance, desire and erotica set against the hopes and fears of contemporary life, a book for our times.

Now I hold the book in my hand and the digital version is ready to slip into devices everywhere, self-publishing Katie in Love turned out to be a worthwhile experience. I have crossed the high wire. I am safely on the other side. All that’s left to say now is: Please buy my book –

Yes Ma’am: The Story Behind “Not Taking the Tube”

3 Comments
March 17  |  eBooks, News  |   Kay Jaybee

I am sure one of the most frequently asked questions that passes from the non-writer to the writer is, ‘Where do you get your ideas from?’

My answer is both predictable, and always the same. ‘From all around me.’ I say- ‘from everywhere.’

To give you an example…

I was stood one cool Saturday morning, with hundreds of others, on the platform of Moorgate Tube Station. There was breathing room only, and we were being advised via a barely audible Tannoy announcement, that it was going to take an average of 2 hours to get to Paddington Station by tube (normally a 20 minute run), so we should consider alternative transport.

tube train

You could feel the tension in the air, the anger was bouncing off the walls, and the language of stress was flying from many a commuter’s mouth. Mobile phones were being launched into life, as apologises were conveyed from those who were going to be very later for work to their employers etc- apart from those who couldn’t get a phone signal- I began to seriously fear for those individual’s blood pressure.

Watching all this from the comfortably resigned position of someone who has three hours before they have to catch their train home, I leant against the grubby grey wall of the station and considered my options. Perhaps, I thought, I should catch a bus.

As I continued to observe my fellow would be travellers, the seed of a plotline began to germinate in my mind. A small and undeniably attractive guard was doing her best, with infinite patience, to explain to the surging mass of commuters what was going on. Facing a barrage of abuse, she calmly carried on, letting all the anger directed at her slip away like water off a ducks back. But what if she snapped? What if her reserve broke…what would she do then?

Yes Ma'am 2015

There and then the story ‘Not Taking The Tube’ was born, a piece which quickly engendered five sister stories, which in turn became my S&M and BSDM based Fem Dom e-anthology Yes Ma’am.

I have never been so glad to be held up by a train!

Here’s a little extract for you…

…Opening his mouth to complain, he found a slim finger pressed over his lips. “Sir, I did not make the tube points fail.” Her voice was perfectly calm. He could smell the dusty claustrophobic atmosphere on her skin as she slowly moved the single digit across his lips making his pulse match his inflated blood pressure. “Nor did I decide to mess up the lighting system. And I certainly didn’t decide that today would be the perfect day to start renovation on the Circle Line.”

His breath rattled in his throat, and yet the presence of her finger somehow prevented him from speaking. It would have been easy to push her away, but the diminutive figure had taken a step forward, and her chest, neat, firm, and encased in a regulation navy shirt and tank top, felt unexpectedly arousing next to his stomach.

“Now, sir, if you go on stressing like this, then you’ll have a heart attack or something. I suggest you allow me to assist you in lowering your tension levels.”

Rational thought was doing its best to communicate with him, telling him that a short dark skinned, incredibly self contained Underground official was unhooking the clasp of his belt. He wanted to rail and shout against the unfairness of delay. He wanted to push her away; shove her; punish her for being so fucking reasonable. He didn’t though; he merely watched as a dangerous smile grew at the corner of her lips.

For a split second time seemed to freeze, as if they were both considering what was about to happen. Then, the woman exploded.

With angry relish she whipped the leather belt from his trousers, dropped it and pulled open his fly so violently that a button came free and skittered across the floor. Gripping his balls through his trousers, she hissed, “You and all you “clever” types don’t even stop to think before you wade in with all your complaints.”

His jaw fell open as she massaged his balls with painful squeezes. It was as if all the weeks and months of unjust dealings had snapped inside her in one go…

Yes Ma’am Gets a New Look!!

1 Comments
March 15  |  eBooks, News  |   Kay Jaybee

In 2012 I wrote a collection of stories called Yes Ma’am. To this day, it remains amongst the favourites of all the anthologies I’ve written, and I am delighted that it has now been given a fresh new cover!!

Check it out!!

Yes Ma'am 2015

A collection of six arse spankingly, wrist binding, whip wielding tales of female domination, Yes Ma’am contains straight, lesbian and bi-sexual encounters of the S&M nature.

Lying in Wait – Cadet Luke Porter is the least successful army recruit in the squadron. The butt of his comrades jokes, his reputation badly needs improving, and he is desperate to do well in the seek and rescue exercise he’s about to embark upon. Some of his female counterparts however, have other plans, and are determined to find out just how far Luke will go to improve his standing within the regiment…

Black – He is intoxicated by the woman in black. He can’t explain why he needs to see her, why he willing does precisely what she tells him to. Why she has such an effect on him, as she sits him in the backroom of a private club and weaves her web of control around him. He is beginning to think he has sold his soul to the devil herself…

Dear Claire – Ali has secretly lusted over her best friend’s lover Rick, for a long time. At least, she thought it was a secret. When her friend Claire asks her to take coffee into Rick as he lies in bed,  it appears that Claire has left Ali a gift wrapped present; her boyfriend, shackled, blindfolded, and ready for Ali to do whatever she likes with. Amazed by Claire’s generosity, Ali doesn’t know where to start, until she sees the neat sentence tattooed on Rick’s arse, ‘If I don’t obey my mistress, I will be punished.’

Don’t You Emma” – In a delicious corruption of Lee’s longed for fantasy, his lover Daisy arranges for them to share another woman. Rather than enjoying a full-on threesome however, Lee finds himself forced to sit and observe his partner perform all the chastisements she normally saves just for him upon a girl called Emma. A girl who, it seems, can withstand the punishments Daisy dishes out with far more self control than Lee has ever managed. Simply sitting in an armchair has never been so difficult…

Not Taking the Tube – Venting his frustration at being delayed yet again by London’s Underground system on the nearest official, the harassed businessman finds his complaints aren’t received in quite the way he’d expected. The petite guard upon whom he directs his anger has just about had enough of the constant string of complaints from the commuters she tries to help. Swiftly turning the tables on her latest assailant, she realises her own pent up anger quickly, sexily, and with the expert use of her surprised companion’s black leather belt…

Rachel’s Twisted Tale – Imprisoned in a bare room, high at the top of an old house, totally naked, her long golden plait wrapped around her body, Rachel waits. She waits for her mistress gaoler to punish her for being perfect. She waits for Tom, her secret lover, to climb in through the window and fuck her senseless. Rachel knows he could free her.  He could help her escape the agonies and humiliations she endures, but she doesn’t want saving. Rachel needs to stay. Rapunzel never suffered like this….

Reviews

“Each story in this anthology is brilliantly written, deliciously twisted and very, very erotic… get a copy of Yes Ma’am into your hot little hands and prepare for some seriously sexy stories that’ll blow your mind (and other places). Recommended.” Erotica For All

“Take a walk on the wicked side with this collection of light BDSM stories… These stories are like little bursts of heat.” – Coffee Time Romance

“Kay is a talented writer, with an easy and saucy style… If a little BDSM or power play gets you going, tuck in with Yes Ma’am.” – For Books’ Sake

“Overall this was a great collection of short stories empowering the females and allowing them to show their dominant side. It’s nice to see the females as the Mistress rather than the submissive.” – Heather Brewer

BDSM Book Reviews“Overall, each of the six were very well written and professional – I enjoyed them all on some level. If you’re a fan of FemDom stories, I would recommend this collection on the strength of “Don’t You, Emma?” and particularly “Dear Claire” alone. Spanks for the memories!” – BDSM Book Reviews

‘There are six femdom tales in this anthology, six tales of women taking control and the men who submit before them. All-in-all a short tasty treat. ~Lying in Wait~Cadet Luke Porter is a screw up. He ends up getting a lesson from three females as they push him beyond his limits. This is my favorite of the six stories. Gotta love the military…’ A Voracious Reader
