ETO Nomination: Best Erotica Writer 2016!!!

ETO nominee 2016


Regulars to this blog will remember the story of my trip to the ETO award last June. I was on my way to the ceremony in when life struck and I ended up drinking water in Worcester A&E, wearing a gown with an arse gap, rather drinking champagne and wearing a long velvet dress with a thigh gap at Birmingham’s NEC, … (A blog about last year’s adventure can be found here)

I am still, almost a year after the event, stunned that I won Best Erotica Author last time. I suspect it might have sunk in more if I’d been there- but even as I dust my award- which has pride of place in my hallway -it doesn’t feel real.

You can imagine my surprise and delight therefore; when I discovered that this year I’ve been nominated again!! Not only that, but my fellow nominees in the Best Writer category, are some of my closest friends. Kd Grace, Victoria Blisse, Tabitha Rayne and journalist Emily Dubberly are all fab folk- and three of those aforementioned gals are also Brit Babes!!!

Count them- that’s 4 Brit Babes out of a group of 5 nominations!!

I could not be prouder! I know it sounds all twee and a bit cliché, but we Brit Babes are such a team, such close friends, that a win for one of us, is truly a win for us all. We all work long hours, and we support each other on and off the smutty page. It’s good to know when I’m up against it, there are 7 other writers standing in my corner, cheering me on.

That, I have to tell you, is something a bit special.

Please may I urge you my friends- if you are in the trade- to get that vote registered. Choose your favourite out of all us wordy types and vote. Then on the night of 12th June, listen out for those BB cheers. Whether one of us wins or not, I guarantee you’ll hear us loud and clear!!

I hope to see you there this time- the frock I purchased for last year has to be worn eventually after all!

Happy reading,

PS- Don’t forget you can also vote for Tabitha Rayne’s amazing new sex toy, The Ruby Glow, in the Most Innovative New Product category!

Jaybee in June: Smut by the Sea, ETO Show, and Tantus!

Here we are, half way through the year, and over a week into June already- and the busiest time of the year for me has well and truly begun!

With Knowing Her Place,  the final part of The Perfect Submissive Trilogy on the e-shelves (paperback release date coming soon), and my latest romance as Jenny Kane penned, I’m madly writing as many short stories as I can in-between heading off on my travels!

This coming Friday I’ll be catching a train that will take me from the bottom of England to almost the top! It’s Smut by the Sea time! This is the first time I’ve made it to this event, and I can’t wait!


Not only will there be writing workshops to attend, there will be a host of stalls from which to buy goodies (including my very own Kay Jaybee stall!), and lots of delicious readings to listen to- and yes, I will be hosting those- and yes, I will be timing them carefully- so watch out if you’re reading and you go over the 5 minute time limit…

Smut stuff


So that’s this coming weekend sorted- but hang on a minute- is it even worth me heading back to the South West?

On the 22nd June, I’m both delighted and flattered to be able to say that I will be attending the ETO Show at the NEC Birmingham, and then the ETO Awards ceremony in the evening- where- amazingly- I am up for Best Erotica Writer! And what company I’m in!

ETO nominations

I am so excited about heading to Birmingham- for I’ll be chilling with my fellow Brit Babes, and wonderful friends Kd Grace (fellow nominee), Tabitha Rayne, Victoria Blisse and Lexie Bay- win or lose, I’m going to have a fantastic time!!

Today I’m staying closer to home. My words however are flying across the Atlantic. For my very first article in for Tantus has  been published on their web site!! All about the how to use erotica to help tell your partner what you’d like in the bedroom (or not), I was honoured to be asked to write for them, and hope to do so again. Don’t forget to check it out!



I’d better nip off and start planning what to take with me to Scarborough- bring it on!!!

Happy reading,

Kay xx
