Dear lovely readers,
I’m so sorry I’ve been so lacking in the blog department lately- my only excuse is that I’ve been a little bit busy…
At the end of 2012 I sat with my dear friend KD Grace, at a little table beside the coast at Lyme Regis having a much needed day off. Coffee in hand, fingertips aching with the exhaustion of twelve months of nonstop typing, we swore to each other, that whatever happened in 2013, we would not take on as much as we had in 2012. We would- we vowed- pester each other to take time every now and then- to breathe, take stock, and stop beating ourselves up about not producing enough work fast enough!
Then in 2013, we sat once again in a cafe in Lyme Regis- the location of our once a year always day meet up- and we said, with coffee in hand, fingertips aching with the exhaustion of twelve months of nonstop typing, we swore to each other, that whatever happened in 2014, we would not take on as much as we had in 2013. We would- we vowed- pester each other to take time every now and then- to breathe, take stock, and stop beating ourselves up about not producing enough work fast enough!
I have a feeling that when we meet again, coffee to hand, watching waves crash against the coastline as the tourists toddle by, we’ll be saying exactly the same thing all over again!
Even by my own standards of overworking, 2014 has been totally insane – but I’m not complaining (although I admit I would pay good money to be able to have weekends off!)- how can I complain about the fact you lovely people are buying my work, and are even asking for more?
I’m loving every minute of writing the fourth and (absolutely) final short story to tie up all the loose ends from The Perfect Submissive Trilogy (The Perfect Submissive, The Retreat, Knowing Her Place), which will be called The New Room (out in February 2015). I’m also busy promoting my latest Jenny Kane releases, There’s a Cow in the Flat (children’s picture book), and Christmas in the Cotswolds (seasonal romance novella), while I’m also editing the next Jenny Kane novel (Abi’s House).
I’m also plotting and planning a hot new erotic anthology for the New Year…and I have a few other secret irons in the fire…
So please lovely blog followers, forgive me for my lack of posts lately!!
I’ll leave you with a tasty little read from one of the short stories in Take Control
Here’s an extract 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…

Our track record is not very good, is it, Kay? 😉 But as hard as it’s been, it’s had a lot of wonderful rewards, as you say. I’ll bet no matter how many times we meet in Lyme Regis, or any place else, we’ll say the same thing, with the best of intentions, and then … another exciting project will tempt us and we’ll be off and writing like the crazy women we are 😀
Crazy is the word! Lucky though! 🙂 x
