WIP excerpt!

Here is a short excerpt from my WIP (which should be released by February 1!) It's called Bottoms Up, and it's a prequel to a series I am going to start soon, Bottoms Up: Pleasures Resort. 

“So smooth,” she crooned as she feathered her fingers over Allie’s cheeks. “Oh this sweet little ass is about to be so red and hot.” She gently smacked Allie with the palm of her hand. “Alex, can you help me and bend this naughty little girl over your lap?”
“Gladly.” Strong arms grabbed Allie around the waist, and Alex maneuvered her until she lay across his lap, her ass upturned and ready for the taking.
Emma pulled the coffee table closer to the couch and sat on it. She rubbed Allie’s cheeks and Allie groaned. Allie wiggled just a little bit, but Alex’s strong arms wrapped over her back and around her thighs and stilled her, holding her in place.
Allie saw the movement out of the corner of her eye just before the blow landed. *Smack* It was light but strong enough to sting slightly. *Smack.* The second blow landed on a slightly different spot and stung like the first. *Smack**Smack**Smack**Smack.* Every blow landed in a different spot. Warmth spread across Allie’s ass. The sweet stinging made her pussy throb. She moaned and arched her ass up as much as Alex’s grip would allow.
“What is it naughty girl? Not enough? You want more?”
“Yes, please!” Allie begged.
“How do you want it?”
“Harder! Please spank me harder.”
“How’s that? Hard enough?”
“Oh god,” Allie moaned loudly as Emma spanked her harder, each blow landing a little more solidly than the one before it. Juices leaked from her throbbing pussy down her thighs as she got wetter and wetter from the punishment.
Emma rubbed her hand over Allie’s enflamed ass, running one finger down the line of her cheeks and sliding lower. “Oh god, you are so wet.” Emma dipped her fingers between Allie’s thighs and rubbed the wetness over her outer lips.
“See baby, I told you Allie would love it.” Alex moved his arm that was holding Allie in place and brought his hand down hard on the burning flesh of her skin. She yelped out loud from the unexpected blow.
“She most definitely does. She just gushed on my hand.”

Allie’s ass was on fire and her pussy throbbed. She moaned when Emma’s fingers dipped between her lips and grazed her clit. She got lost in the sensations as Alex spanked her over and over, his palm landing on her already tender ass and making the fire spread. Emma rubbed her clit and sent sparks of hot pleasure coursing through her. Every blow and stroke drove her higher and higher until she reached the peak and exploded. Her body shook, and her cries rang out in the room as waves of pleasure rolled over her.

Five Things I Wish I Would Have Known When I Started Out Writing

Actually, make that publishing. I never had much problem with the writing, but I recently joined a group filled with self-publishing authors, and I learned I have been doing it all wrong. So, here are five things I wish I'd known to start with.

1. Great cover art is important! : Okay, so technically I already knew that, I just didn't really "get" it. I've wasted many years of sales by not having better looking covers on my books to grab readers' attention. I am in the process of learning PS, and I will be updating most of my covers. I hope it will generate some new interest in those titles!

2. Put your contact info in the front and back matter. : I had one of those DUH! moments when I had this epiphany. I really don't know why I didn't know I should do that. It makes perfect sense. I have had this blog and my website pretty much from the beginning. I bet I'd have hundreds more visitors if I'd been including this information in all of my books.

3. Stick to a theme!: So my books as Savannah fall into a myriad of categories and themes: BDSM, erotic horror, romance, paranormal, etc. It seems I have been shooting myself in the foot for not sticking to a THEME. I have plans to correct that soon. Now don't fear! I won't be cutting Savannah out of existence. I have a backlist of shorts that I will continue to publish under that name, and when I get the urge to write a really naughty story, I will publish under the Savannah name as well. However, I do plan to bring my focus into paranormal romance, and I will be creating a new pen name for that. I will make an announcement about that when I am ready.

4. Have a mailing list!: I am so far behind the times on this! Oh how I wish I knew about these things when I first started writing. I just recently signed up to get a mailing list going for this name. So please, if you want to keep up with new releases, contests, news, please sign up for the newsletter using the box on the sidebar. Newsletter subscribers will be the first to know about everything! Plus, I will occasionally send out freebies with the newsletter that won't be available anywhere else.

5. Publish, Publish, Publish!: So of course I've been publishing off and on over the past few years, but my every day life has always seemed to get in the way of establishing an actual writing/publishing schedule. Between a full time job, family, etc. it's been a struggle. My goal for 2014 is to release at least two new works every month, either as Savannah or under my new pen name. So keep an eye out, 2014 is going to be a great year!

Excerpt from my Coming Soon ebook!

Here's a sneak peak at my upcoming release, Taken by the King.

Seeing the tremble race through her body, Alex smiled gently and took her petite hand. “Do not be afraid. I’m not going to hurt you.” A slight frown tilted the corners of his mouth as he said, “I’m not like my father was.” Even though none of the harem girls would talk directly to her, Elena had heard snippets of their conversations throughout the day. Most were happy they no longer had to service the old King. He had been mean and rough.
King Alex led her to an ornate golden bed, which had a gauzy white canopy hanging down around all sides to add privacy. Pushing the flimsy material aside, he helped her up onto the soft bed. Trembling, she lay back against the cushiony pillows, her tawny hair fanning out like a halo around her head. As his hands trailed down her body, she turned her head away from him and clamped her eyes shut.
Her whole life she had dreamed of being married to her betrothed, the son of a farmer in a nearby village, but the late King’s tax hikes had taken everything her parents had saved for a dowry and the farmer refused the marriage without one. Instead of becoming the wife of the man she’d come to love, she had lost her parents and was brought to the palace to be used on the whim of the now King.
A tear trickled from the corner of her eye as Alex untied the ribbons that held the bodice of her flimsy dress together. She was nothing more than chattel to be taken however he saw fit, no longer a woman or human being, just a thing to be played with. The sides of the top of the dress fell away, revealing her firm breasts. She tried to think far away thoughts as his hands squeezed the soft flesh.
Shame burned within her as he stripped off the remainder of the dress, baring her supple young body to his hungry eyes. “I know you’re upset,” he said softly as his hands returned to knead her full breasts, “but at least here in the palace, you will never have to worry about going hungry or being homeless.”
“I wasn’t given that choice,” she said, her voice filled with sadness.
“Sadly, few of us have choices in our lives. I did not choose to be King, but because of my parentage, I have no choice.”
“It is because of yer father that I have no choice,” Elena said, bitterness lacing her words. “Because of his taxes, I lost my dowry and my beloved.”
“I’m sorry,” the King responded as his fingers rolled her stiffening nipples between their tips. “Fate brought you here. You weren’t meant to be the wife of a lowly farmer. You were destined to become a lover of the King.”
“It’s not what I want,” she gasped as warmth radiated through her body from the touch of his hands upon her breasts.
“It’s what you are, and your body knows it. It’s already responding to my touch.”
Sadly, Elena knew his words were true. She had no one, and on top of that, her own body was turning traitor. “That may be so, but I don’t have to submit willingly.” She didn’t know why at that moment her mind decided to rebel. Up until this point, she’d resigned herself to whatever happened. Knowing it was useless made no difference to her. Unless she at least tried, she knew she would not be able to live with herself.
Rolling to her right, she made it off the bed and ran. She had forgotten about the guards, but it did not matter. King Alex caught her before she had gotten half-way across the room. His strong hand grabbed her dainty wrist and the sudden wrenching stop jerked her off her feet. Looking up, she saw him towering over her, the friendliness of earlier replaced with disappointment… and irritation.
“Elena… You were off to such a good start, why did you have to ruin it?” he inquired as he yanked her to her feet. “I was hoping we’d have a nice night of mutual enjoyment, but it looks as though you need to be taught a lesson.”
Fear pounded in her heart as she understood the meaning of his words. “No, please, I promise, I’ll be good.”
“A little late for that…” He dragged her back to the bed and threw her face down onto the cushiony mattress. His weight settled over her thighs, and she yelped as the palm of his hand connected with the bare cheeks of her ass. Tears flowed down her face as slap after slap echoed through the room. A stinging burn spread out through her taut cheeks as he meted out her punishment.
“Please, stop, please,” she begged as pain and humiliation flooded her body. One more hard whack to her ass and King Alex moved off her body and rolled her onto her back. She flinched as the sore skin of her ass made contact with the coverlet.
“Now behave yourself and you’ll enjoy tonight. Keep resisting, and I’ll have no choice but to get rough. Don’t make me do that.”
Tearfully, Elena nodded her head, her teeth biting at her bottom lip to hold in the sobs threatening to spill from her mouth. The unexpected pleasure that shot through her body as his warm mouth closed over a nipple sent a gasp tumbling from her. She didn’t understand why the contact made her feel good. She didn’t want to be there, didn’t want to be lying on his bed so he could have his way with her body.
Instead of trying to bite back sobs, she was now trying to bite back moans as the soft roughness of his tongue swirled around her stiff nub. His fingers walked down her stomach, and she tried to keep her legs pressed together as he sought entrance to the soft wetness between her creamy thighs. He gripped her inner thighs tightly and forced them open, and she gave in, allowing them to fall open for him.
She couldn’t stop the moan from coming as his hand rubbed her slit. Bucking against him as his finger slid inside her moist heat, she arched back against the bed. Oh god, stop, she thought, but she no longer knew if her brain was talking to the King or to her traitorous body. He moved on top of her, his weight pressing her deeper into the softness of the bed...

Buy it when it comes out to see what else happens to Elena!
