    Vanilla V BDSM

    Remember the hype back in 2015, 13 February to be exact, when Fifty Shades of Gray, the first of the 3 movies, was released? EMSs all over the world feared that they would be faced with a wave of injuries caused by BDSM scenes gone wrong. Personally, I was obsessed by the Shades of Gray, all 3 of them, and it got me thinking. I wanted to write a really hot book of my own - without the BDSM, for one simple reason. Although it worked in the Gray saga, to my mind, BDSM isn't romantic. It is a transaction. One person allows another to hurt/humiliate him/her for their pleasure,…

    Trapped In Yesterday: A Bewildering Ghostly Tale.

    Seriously, who doesn't love the goosebumps raised by things that can't rationally be explained? Creaking doors, a cat's arched back and puffed-out tail, footsteps when no one is there.

    A View Across A Bay

    Bloubergstrand is a seaside suburb of the City of Cape Town, South Africa, 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) due north of the city center. Literally, Bloubergstrand means Blue Mountain Beach. The view across the bay is absolutely stunning. Looking at Table Mountain from this angle, on the left is Devil's Peak, then Table Mountain proper - the top cable car station is on the very right, then Kloof Neck. Next is Lion's Head and in front of that, sloping toward the harbor, is Signal Hill, from where to this day a canon shot marks the midday hour. The hotel we will be staying at for the first week of our holiday…

    Just look what I have gone and done!

    Trapped In Yesterday became, well, Trapped In Yesterday. Yup, I have gone and done it again. It is as if something is biting me, and I just have to do it - I can't help myself. I only had to change the cover image of Trapped In Yesterday. The story is still the same - a young widow who is given an interesting birthday gift - a night with a professional sex worker - but her dead husband objected. Which cover do you prefer, left or right? Announcement My duology Roxanne's Ghost is no longer available in Kindle Unlimited. And, me being me, it was too good an opportunity not…

    A jealous ghost – seriously?

    They say a ghost is the same as the person was in life. So, a playful person would be a playful, mischievous ghost, and a secretive person would make a secretive ghost, hiding stuff and so on. Is it then true that a jealous person would be jealous and possessive of his/her loved ones even after they die? Lawrence had many secrets he kept from Rachel. After he died, he still didn't want her to know certain things about himself. And he hung around to make sure she didn't find out. He was also a possessive husband, to the extent that he preselected a man to take his place should…

    ConfessionTime

    This is Trip Murgatroyd, just as I saw him in my head while writing his story. Blond, well-built, beautiful. That was why I wanted him on the cover for Interview With A Seducer.  He came surfing on the back of Christian Gray, but unlike Christian, Trip wasn’t screwed up by his childhood. He was wholesome, a good South African man with an unusual career. Early reviewers said he detracted from the paranormal theme, and they didn’t like the title ‘Interview With A Seducer’ either.  I don’t know about other authors, but I listen to my readers – that is why I say your opinion is so important to me. I…

    ‘Sex Worker’ as a Literary Trope

    The sex worker trope is a popular one in the romance genre. I mean, we had Pretty Woman to prove it, but like with all tropes, there are rules. Faithfulness is one of the most important elements of the romance genre, and one that causes the most pain. Of course, we don’t want outside interference between the hero and heroin. But would a prostitute even be in the market for a mutually exclusive relationship, the kind the romance genre has at its core? My guess is – it is doubtful. From the meet cute – the moment the two first fall into each other’s soup – someone has to change their…
