This is WIPItUp, the blog hop where authors share excerpts from their works in progress. And please feel free to comment – we authors love feedback.
This week I’m sharing another snippet from my story in a BDSM themed anthology, Sensory Limits, which is available now for early download from the publisher. The collection goes on general release next month and my story, Yes or No? will be out as a stand-alone novella in October. And check out this gorgeous cover art by the wonderful Emmy at Totally Bound.
Here’s the blurb for Yes or No?
There’s no harm in just filling in the form, is there? It’s only a bit of harmless escapism, a sexy fantasy. The advert is tempting, though.
A strictly vicarious lover of the BDSM lifestyle, Martha never really means to hit Send. A couple of forays into spanking and a spot of lackluster bondage haven’t quite managed to ignite her curiosity about the dark art of submission, but they haven’t entirely extinguished it, either. It’s there, gnawing away at the back of her mind—a dream of what could be, if only…
Martha craves sensation. She yearns for intensity, for a touch to make her skin tingle and her nerve-endings sizzle, a caress to make her scream and demand her surrender. And that’s the problem. She’s a cautious soul and no pain slut. She’s not about to hand herself over to some ham-fisted Dom and trust to luck again.
So when she learns she is one of the winners who is to be offered the chance to play out the scene from her kinky imaginings to the letter, she can’t believe it. The only condition? The organizers reserve the right to select the Dom, one skilled in the specifics of Martha’s personal fantasy, and the scene must be played out in public.
Yes or No?
And the snippet. Martha has mail…
She opened the message and blinked. What the…?

Martha stared at the screen. Bloody hell. Bloody, fucking hell with bells on and a great big red satin bow. Now what? She checked the little box next to live chat, selected a time slot the following Sunday afternoon and clicked Submit.
