That Eternal Question, Print or Digital




There is a very clever article on The Huffington Post about the demise of the print industry, written by J.A. Konrath.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ja-konrath/is-print-dead_b_583959.html


As a primarily electronically published author, I’m a big fan of digital publishing. No trees destroyed, no remaindered books pulped and adding to the mountain of garbage we produce each day, no transportation costs adding to our carbon footprint.

Then there is the speed and ease of purchase. Anywhere I am in the world, no matter what time of day or night, I can go to a publisher’s website, and download the book of my choice and be reading inside a few minutes. For considerably less than I would pay in a traditional, brick-and-mortar store. Or I can go to one of the big multi-publisher sites and scroll around through the genres to find half a dozen new books or new-to-me authors, just like in a bookstore, only I can be reading them in moments without ever leaving my comfy chair.


As an author I acknowledge there’s something special about holding my book in my hands, and autographing it for a fan. Quite a few of my books are out in print and I love having copies of them. I also hate the downside of e-publishing where people pirate my book and “share” it with their one thousand closest friends, without giving thought to the fact that if they don’t pay me for my work, I’m not going to be able to pay my bills. Another factor is one of the saddest things I’ve seen is a book lover sitting surrounded by her books, crying because she has to get rid of many of them due to lack of space in her home. For her, the trauma was similar to farewelling old friends. At least with digital books, thousands can be stored safely on a single external hard drive.

Overall I see digital publishing as the way of the future, although print books will probably be around for many years yet. So my answer to that eternal question, Print or Digital, is both for now.


Fortunately for readers, all the Naughty Literati boxed sets are available in digital and in print forms, so you can choose your favorite format.

What do you like to do on a Lazy Sunday?



I prefer summer to winter, so my absolute favorite lazy Sunday would be spent on a beach, somewhere hot, with a long cold drink in one hand, a short hot erotic romance novel in the other, and lots of semi-naked, yummy-looking males walking past for me to watch.
In winter, the best I can do is curl up by the fire with a hot drink in one hand, a hot book in the other, and my imagination for the yummy, semi-naked men. Sigh.
Even if I can’t be at the beach in summer, thanks to the day job, at least there are usually shirtless men in the park running around throwing or kicking balls, or possibly shirtless construction workers not too far from my home.
Sadly, I haven’t noticed any men taking off their shirts to shovel the walk in winter, although I live in hope.

A while ago I wrote a story about some people who decided to train as Life Guards.
Ah, life guards. YUM!

Blurb and excerpt Summer Job, Summer Love

Bronwyn needs a summer job and thinks being a Life Guard would be fun. In class she’s surprised to find there are twelve men and only three women. She’s even more surprised when Ross and Jake monopolize her attention and want to date her. But this is only a summer romance. It can’t possibly last longer than the ten Life Guard lessons. Can it?

PG 13 Excerpt
“May we kiss you?” he asked.
“I was really hoping you would.”
He took her into his arms, and, as Jake pressed against her back, Ross wrapped his arms around Jake’s shoulders, enclosing her tightly between them. Jake did the same thing with his arms around both their waists.
Ross ground his hot, aching dick into her belly, and she wiggled against him, deliberately arousing him. Her head tipped back against Jake’s shoulder as she watched Ross’s face.
“Tease.” He whispered the word, then drove his tongue into her mouth. He needed to claim her, possess her, and demonstrate to her she that she belonged to them now. Her hands smoothed up and down along his sides as he fucked her mouth as fast and hard as he could.
Jake let go of Ross’s waist and his hands pushed between Bronwyn’s body and Ross’s until he cupped her breasts, and pinched her nipples.
When they finally pulled apart to draw breath, Bronwyn giggled a little. “I guess that’s a special benefit of kissing a swimmer. They can go a long time before coming up for air.”
She was probably right, but Ross couldn’t think now. “I like that dress, but I’d prefer you naked,” he said.
“Let me.”
Jake unzipped her dress and brushed it off her shoulders. Ross bent down and took it as she stepped out of it, laying it on the back of a chair, then he unbuckled her sandals and placed them neatly beside the chair. By the time he got back Jack already had her bra off and was kneeling in front of her sucking her breasts. Bronwyn’s eyes were closed and Ross’s cock was trying to break out of his pants. Quickly, he stripped out of his clothes. Jake lifted his head and turned Bronwyn to face Ross.
Ross stood with his legs apart and pulled her body to him, once again plastering her to every inch of him. Only this time there was only her panties between them, and they were little more than a scrap of green lace and silk. He possessed her mouth once more as he slid both hands inside her panties and flattened his palm against her ass, wanting her to know of his need for her. As he kissed her, he massaged her butt cheeks, letting his thumbs touch her rosette.
He and Jake both hoped she’d agree to double fuck them, but they weren’t confident of it happening on a first date. Hell, they hadn’t even been convinced she’d agree to come back home with them although he’d had a Plan B and even a Plan C to try to convince her to agree.
However, she was busy kissing him back and widened her own stance slightly to let him play with her ass, so there was a definite possibility he and Jake might be able to double fuck her. But he refused to get his hopes up too high. It was a big ask for a woman. Double penetration was the most intense sex and didn’t really say “First Date”.
Once again, Jake stepped behind Bronwyn and began to slide her panties off her hips and down her legs. She had perfect hips, rounded ones that he could hold onto as he fucked her. Not sharp protruding bones as some women had. He liked Bronwyn’s figure. It screamed “woman” to him, someone capable of playing with two men without being too fragile physically to cope with their needs and their love.
He liked Jake’s body, too. Jake was naked now, his cock a long thick flagpole, rising up from its nest of light-brown curls. His torso was all muscle. Sex with a man was much rougher than with a woman. Ross liked both. The freedom to slam as hard as he wanted to into Jake, but also the sweet wet heat of a woman’s cunt. Both. Tonight he planned to have both. As long as Bronwyn agreed.

Freeing the Beast. Coming 17 October

Freeing the Beast - book one Taming the Beast series.

A reluctant witch, a minor god, and dangerous potions. Oh my.

Who said love and sorcery wasn't fun?

Erotic Paranormal - Romantic Comedy



Ready to read October 17

Please help get out the word on Freeing the Beast 
by supporting my two social media campaigns.


Blurb:

Book one in the Taming the
Beast series

No more
Mr. Nice Guy.

For Becca
Salt being a witch isn’t all magic. Too curvy and lonely, she spends her nights
running a makeover service for demons, vamps, weres and zombies who want to project
a more human, normal side. Their goal? To get the babes without the authorities
hunting them down like rabid dogs. Once Becca suppresses the worst of their
beast, they’re on the hunt and gone.

Dating
has been a definite bitch for Eric Diletto. Although he’s hot and hung, he’s
also one of Cupid’s descendants—a god born to believe in courtship, courtesy
and all that other junk. Tired of women dumping him for the bad boys, Eric
hires Becca to release his inner beast. Grrrr.

Two
potions later, they’re crawling all over each other. With Eric’s newfound
dominance, he’s definitely the man. And the god, who intends to take Becca
here, there and everywhere. Who said sorcery and love wasn’t fun?




Warning—a witchdoctor’s nightmare. Contains potions with
weird side effects, a sorceress with limited magical skills and a yearning
heart, plus a minor god who wants to get down and dirty. Bad, bad boy.



Excerpt:


“You’re going to do my treatments in here?” There wasn’t any equipment around or things one might use for magic, like chicken feet, wands and other stuff.

“Before we begin, you need to read this.” She slid the papers she’d been reading across the desk to him.

He grabbed a chair and sat. “Is that the process?”

“In a manner of speaking.”

“What’s that mean?”

“It’s the contract you have to sign or nothing, and I do mean nothing, happens.”

Jesus, she was hardcore today. As a rule, business owners were that way with people who didn’t want their services, not ones who did. He bounced the inch-thick papers on his palm to test their weight. “I’m guessing this sucker weighs a pound. Am I right?”

She drummed her fingertips on her naked belly. Tiny silver stars cascaded from her navel. Each time she breathed, the jewelry caught the light.

He wanted to kiss the baubles and her dewy flesh.

She wore the same basic outfit she had when they had first met—flowy pants and a top that tied beneath her breasts, only these were in sapphire blue. The same shade as her eyes. Her makeup was no less dramatic than the last time—crimson lipstick that made her mouth undeniably kissable and black stuff surrounding her lids.

What a babe. Too bad she wasn’t into him. Maybe with the junk she came up with to bring out his beast, she would be. “Is your service usually this complicated?” He lifted the papers and hoped she wasn’t using them to run him off.

“The contract is simply full disclosure to help you understand the process. So you’re completely protected.”

A Wall Street hedge fund manager couldn’t have sounded as evasive. “Protected against what?”

Her face paled. She gestured to the papers he held. “It’s all in there. Go on, read it.”

“That could take days.”

She glanced to the right, the left and past him. When she’d run out of places to look, she dragged her attention back to his face. “Most of it’s standard legal junk. I’ve highlighted the important parts.”

“The ones that will release my inner beast.”

“In a manner of speaking.”

That again. She sounded far less confident than Eric would have liked or expected. He dropped the contract on her desk. The draft it created sent other papers floating to the edge.

Becca caught them before they fell to the floor. Her top gapped, exposing her lacy black bra. He gripped his chair and leaned up, rubbernecking.

A Summer Gift To You



“I don’t even understand why you invited me to come to the conference with you this weekend. You haven’t spent ten seconds in the same room as me all day.” Jayden crossed his bare arms over his naked chest and glowered at Vincent, not even excited to be wearing the brand new teeny-tiny Speedo swimwear he’d raced out to buy when he heard the conference center had a swimming pool and hot tub.

“You knew I was here for work. The company is paying me to attend so they expect me to participate in the various workshops and forums.”

Jay ground his teeth together to stop him from screaming at Vince. It took every ounce of control he had to keep his voice sufficiently low that the people in the next room wouldn’t hear every word he said. “There’s no workshop or forum on now. Your program states ‘Free Time. Please avail yourselves of our facilities.’ The swimming pool is a facility and you know I said I was looking forward to using it.”

Jay bit his lip. He’d had such high hopes about this weekend away. Vince held a senior management position with TekiSolutionz, and he often worked late nights and all through the weekend. They had so little time together that when Vince had asked him to come to this conference he hadn’t begrudged a cent of the money it’d cost him to buy several new shirts, neckties, and even new shoes so he’d look appropriately attired to be a senior manager’s partner.

But this free time was precious. He’d had such high hopes of the moments they’d spend in each other’s others arms in the few brief breaks in the program. It would be the pay off for him sitting silent and bored beside Vince for hours and hours during the formal presentations and speeches tomorrow night.

Vince shook his head. “Jay, I never promised to spend the free time with you. I’ve gotten permission to use Breakout Room Three with one of the sound system engineers and a video tech to practice my presentation for tomorrow night. They’re going to record me so I can watch the tape and see what I need to improve. You know how important it is to me to impress our major clients and stakeholders tomorrow.”

“Of course I know. You’ve been talking about it nonstop for weeks. But what about me? When will you be able to squeeze me into your life?”
“You’re already in my life. You know I love you. I invited you here in public as my partner.”

“Yes, but we’ve hardly seen each other. When are we actually going to exchange a sentence with each other?”

“We could do that now if you’d stop pouting and acting like I’m standing you up.”

Just then Vince’s cell phone beeped.

“Gotta run. That’s the sound tech ready for me. I’ll see you for dinner tonight. It’s formal remember. At seven, in the ballroom.”
Jay nodded, but Vince wasn’t even looking. He was already halfway out the door on his way to his next appointment. Jay dropped back onto the bed. That’s the way it was far too often. Vince rushing from an important meeting to an even more important meeting. Him coming home from his very ordinary job to cook dinner for them both even though he knew that half the time Vince wouldn’t come home to eat it and the rest of the time it wouldn’t taste nice anyway because it’d gone cold and been reheated hours later.

Was that going to be all his life held from now on? Snatches of Vince’s time when his work didn’t come first? Himself just a space filler for when Vince’s career was up-to-date? Vince said he loved him, but was that enough to live on?

* * * *

Vince had trouble putting Jay’s sad face out of his mind so he could concentrate on his work. It was even harder trying to forget the bright pink and black swimwear he’d been wearing. It didn’t leave much to the imagination and Vince would enjoy freeing Jay’s mighty fine cock from the tiny piece of fabric and tasting him.

But not now. Tomorrow night was vital for his career. Only four of the senior managers would be giving a presentation at the formal dinner and he was one of them. He absolutely had to give such an honor every ounce of his effort and attention. No way could he risk stumbling over his words or not producing a smooth, engrossing speech. This rehearsal was very important to him. Only by watching a video of himself would he genuinely know if he’d gotten his timing or actions wrong or if his words didn’t come out how he wanted them to.

But he hated that Jay was sad. Vince knew he’d been ignoring Jay lately. Well, not ignoring him precisely. No one could ever ignore such a delicious hunk of premium manhood. But maybe taking him for granted somewhat. He did need to change up his game and come home on time more often. Or at least text Jay with the time he actually would be home. It was rude to expect dinner to be cooked for him and then not turn up. He did need to act better toward Jay.

He mentally ran through his speech, and then stood on the stage and gave the presentation as if he were in the ballroom. The sound crew clapped him at the end, but he wasn’t sure if they were being polite, or if they’d liked his speech. However when they replayed the video, he had come across well. Now he just had to worry that he wouldn’t fuck-up on the night. Wasn’t there some saying or other that the worse the dress rehearsal went, the better the performance usually was? Oh shit, maybe this hadn’t been such a brilliant idea after all.

“Thank you all for helping me out,” Vince said to the sound crew.

“No problem. We still have over an hour before we need to start setting up for the dinner tonight.”

“Really? I thought it’d take longer.”

“You were as smooth as silk. You’ve got time to get a coffee or whatever before preparing for tonight’s program.”

“Thanks. I might do that.”

But instead of going downstairs to the coffee shop, he went up to the rooftop swimming pool. He half expected to find Jay lying on a sun bed sipping some exotic drink, or maybe surrounded by men lusting after him in that tiny sexy pink piece of fabric.

Instead, Jay had evidently been swimming. He was in the middle of the pool stretching. Damn, he looked delicious. The yummiest hunk of man on planet Earth. Without stopping to think Vince raced down the steps and into the swimming pool, and marched across to Jay, pulling him into his arms and kissing him.

“I love you, Jay. I promise to spend more time with you.”

Jay jumped up, wrapping his legs around Vince’s waist. “I love you, too, Vince, but that suit isn’t going to like being in chlorinated water. Why didn’t you change into your board shorts first?”

“I didn’t want to waste a single minute when I could be with you. I promise to be better about letting you know when I’m free, and spending every spare second of my life with you.”

“Every spare second, hmm? How can a man resist such a wonderful offer?”

Vince tightened his grip on Jay as Jay kissed him back with so much promise if he hadn’t been waist deep in water they’d have been arrested for what might happen next.

Look what's only 99 cents for the next three days!!!



Ultimate Possession (MFM) by Berengaria Brown

When Kiri, a New Thimphu native, is abducted by two men who tie her up and demand she have sex with them, she's terrified—and furious. Tradition or not, she won't let someone else determine her future. The men tell her if she satisfies them, they’ll marry her. Kiri confesses her love for two men she's known her whole life.

When the men reveal themselves as George and Wang, the brothers she has loved for years, Kiri is relieved but still angry. Her anger, mixed with desire, is too much to contain, and what follows is a night of intense passion as the men claim her over and over again.

Kiri soon settles into her new life, but now her friend Anh is lonely. Can Kiri help her friend find what she now has with George and Wang—days filled with fun and romance and nights filled with never ending passion?

Note: This book contains forced seduction. There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

Ultimate Possession was the ULTIMATE in GREAT reading! This was another GREAT book in a GREAT series!! Berengaria Brown shines with this series. Even though this is the first series I have ever read ...
- Book_Lover

"Kiri has been in love with Wang and George for years. But, it seems no matter what she does Wang just doesn’t seem to want her. Kiri isn’t going to give up though. So when she is abducted one day heading home from the human realm to new Trimphu she is terrified and just a little furious. She is not going to let someone else decide her future and while the abduction is a tradition among her people she will not give into the men, as she confesses her love for George and Wang. But will Kiri get what she has always wanted? Ultimate Possession is an erotic story about abduction, for all the right reasons (trust me in this case it is for all the right reasons). Ms. Brown has woven a tale that blends the human world and the New Thimphu World expertly, and seamlessly. I was intrigued by the storyline and I love how she has George, Wang and Kiri interact, and that she has Kiri stick to her principles, no matter the situation. I found Ultimate Possession an intriguing and fast paced story."
