Reclaiming Wednesday

It’s Wednesday- and for the first time in way too long, I have had a Kay day- a real Wicked Wednesday!

For the past year I’ve had to give the other ‘mes’ priority as -frankly- I sell more books as Jenny Kane and Jennifer Ash, than I do as Kay. However, after receiving all the rights back to my erotica novels- not to mention nearly all my anthologies- I have decided it’s time to make Wednesday’s Kay days again.

I am in the process of revamping, reediting, and generally improving, all of my erotica- one book at a time. As you can imagine, after being in the business for so long, that leaves a hell of a lot of books demanding my attention- and I will be tackling them one at a time!

I am starting with my anthologies and one of my novels…I will reveal which very soon.

The anthologies will all be available on Radish first (an online download app for Android)- and then on Amazon etc in Kindle format. The novels will be Kindle etc first, and then paperback if demand is high enough…

I have to say, it has been tremendous fun going back over my old work, picking new covers, rewriting blurbs- groaning at past missed editing errors- and laughing at how times have changed! It seems funny now to read about a man who delivers videos door to door- 13 years ago the mobile video rental van was part of life!

I’d better go and get on with the re-edits. Don’t forget lots of my books are still available to buy- just check out the book lists at the top of this blog page.

Happy reading,

Nine Years of Smutty Wordage!!! Kay’s Anniversary Blog

10 Comments
September 9  |  News  |   Kay Jaybee

As ever, I can’t believe another year has rolled around, and here I am writing an anniversary blog to mark my ninth year of writing erotica!!

Book row 3

I always seem to start these blogs with cries of- ‘I can’t believe where the time has gone!’ and ‘How can it possibly be this long already?!’- And once again, I’m wondering those very things!

One minute I was sat in a cafe in Scotland writing a very kinky cross-dressing story down on a napkin (just because it had popped into my head and I felt I had to get the idea out), and the next, I’m sat in a cafe on the south coast of England having written a respectable handful of novels, with another about to be released, and a few more lined up…

So – what a year it has been!

I’ve taken part in the opening of a new Adult Boutique outside Canterbury, read at the wonderful Sh Woman’s Store a few times, appeared in the Huff Post, Woman’s Own, and the Daily Mail, and been nominated for Best Erotic Author 2013 by the ETO.

I became a Brit Babe!! Joining the fabulous Kd Grace, Lucy Felthouse, Lily Harlem, Natalie Dae, Tabitha Rayne, Victoria Blisse, and Lexie Bay, in a joint blog that provides a wonderful reference to the best erotica available today!

I’ve been lucky enough to be introduced to the wonderful Modesty Ablaze– who I’m proud to say is a big Kay Jaybee reader- and had a fantastic time meeting and re-meeting a whole host or erotica folk at the Eroticon UK conference in March- the highlight of which had to be the poetry lesson by the brilliant Ashley Lister– I’m still laughing!!

On the actual writing front things have been as hectic as ever (not a complaint!!)- I was over the moon to be asked by Xcite Books to turn my BDSM novel The Perfect Submissive into a trilogy- and so I have spent the majority of the last six months writing Part 2 of the story of Miss Jess Sanders! Entitled The Retreat, this novel continues with a BDSM theme- but with extra spanking. It will be out on 10th October… Watch this blog for more details very soon! If you can’t wait- you can pre-order the paperback version from Amazon UK and Amazon.com already!!

The Retreat- New rope

Alongside this novel, I’ve been scribbling away at a handful of short stories for the a number of anthologies, including, Best Bondage Erotica 2014 (Cleis Press)

BBE 2014

And, just to add some icing to the erotica cake, I’ve been working on a new anthology! There will be a special ‘Kay Jaybee Kinky Christmas’ collection hitting the eBook world- but more about that later in the year…

Blimey- I had no idea I’d been so busy!! And life is about to get a whole lot busier- for not only am I Kay these days- but also Jenny Kane!! (See the box at the top right hand of this blog page).

Jenny’s first novel- the contemporary romance- of the non-soppy variety- is called Another Cup of Coffee– and I’m pleased to say, has been going down very well so far! Phew!!! I was very nervous about branching away from the erotica!!

ACOC- cover

So- from tomorrow, when my lovely daughters will be back at school for the new term (both at High School now!!- How did that happen?!), I will be beginning not one, but 2 new novels!!- Part 3 of The Perfect Submissive Trilogy, and the second Jenny Kane novel- oh, and I’d better go to work as well, or my courier boys will be wondering where on earth I’ve got to…

No rest for the wicked….hee hee hee….

Happy reading!!

Home Again – and so much is happening!

Comments Off on Home Again – and so much is happening!
August 6  |  News  |   Kay Jaybee

Home again from my trip to Sorrento- and thought I’d nip by and say hello before I tackle my inbox (just a glance at it is enough to make me want to get back on the plane!!)

I’ll blog properly about my trip to Italy as soon as I’m back in my stride work wise, but I think it’s safe to say that an Ancient Roman style novel will be happening…Pompeii is a truly inspiring place on the erotica front- those Romans were so naughty!!

So- I’ve been away just one week, and as I rub on the after sun (managed to get burnt on the last day despite my religious rubbing in of the Factor 50!!), I have been running an eye over what’s been happening- here’s a quick list!!

1-     I’m Xcite author of the month!!! Not only does that mean you’ll have the chance to win some Kay Jaybee books, they’ll be plenty of free reads available- including this snippet from my BDSM novel The Perfect Submissive, and all my Xcite books are available at 25% from the Xcite site!!!

2-     It’s August Alfresco month courtesy of the wonderful Blisse Team, Victoria and Kevin. Check out my entry, and all the other blogs involved, to be in with the chance of winning vouchers and a Kindle Fire!!

3-     The edits to my latest novel, The Retreat– Part 2 of The Perfect Submissive Trilogy– are all complete, and so the countdown to its release can now truly begin… You can pre order it here (The new improved cover will be up on Amazon soon!!)

4-     I am delighted to have been invited to help with the opening of a brand new adult shop,  La Boudoir Boutique…Check out this great site– and why not come along to Canterbury midday on 23rd August to say hi and meet a few of those celebrity type folks!!

5-     As if that wasn’t enough- also on 23rd Aug, I will be taking part in a Reading Slam at the wonderful Sh! Women’s store in Hoxton, London from 6.30pm- grab your tickets quick!!

6-     And finally, to add the cherry to my cup cake (I have one right in front of me- next to the black coffee)- I have just been told I will be having  story in Best Bondage Erotica 2014!! Chuffed to bits!!! You can pre-order your copy here.

BBE 2014

I think that’s enough news for now!! I’d better go and put on the fourth load of washing, and crack on with the inbox mountain!!

Happy reading!!
