Why Santa Has Me On The Naughty List! #Erotica #BlushingBooks

As much as I love Santa, I have to confess I've been a real bad girl this year. But in a good way for all you naughty readers! Here is a list of my naughty but so very nice contributions to your erotica libraries, complete with a teeny summation of each titillating work.

I hope you've been as naughty as me and gave Santa a reason to put you over his knee!

Jingle Belles:
Belle was given everything, great looks, a fantastic boyfriend, and her Advertising Agency was set to become one of the best in the business. But all this was spoiled by her cold and selfish heart. Her dead roommate, Nicky, warns her she'll be visited by three ghosts, and if she doesn't take heed, she will pay for all eternity.
This book jingled your Christmas bells with a little spanking and light humor! Available now at Blushing Books by clicking here. Bride For Lord Esher:
Lord Esher makes a foolish bet with his best friend to either bed the woman serving them at the tavern - or marry her!  Carried away in drunken foolishness he wakes up to find this low-born woman by his bed, studying him. But despite his best attempts to rid himself of such an unsuitable wife, he is stuck with her. But when she is driven away by his unscrupulous friends he will do anything to get her back.
Dark with a sprinkle of BDSM, this one will pull your heartstrings as well as your Christmas cracker. Available now at Blushing Books by clicking here.

Lady Charity and the Guilty Pleasure:
When Lady Charity Lancing comes into possession of a book censored by Regency society as indecent, it seems little more than a trivial guilty pleasure. But when her possession of it is discovered, an unscrupulous suitor uses her secret as leverage in his marriage proposition - with disastrous consequences for all.
This book is a sweet, though dark romance - underlining the stark contrast between erotic fantasy and real-life trials. More nice, than naughty! Available now at Blushing Books by clicking here. and the Marquis:
Four sexually adventurous college students use a dusty occult tome to resurrect the Marquis deSade, and get more than they bargained for. The students only wanted to draw on the famous sadist's experience to enhance their erotic education, but soon they find themselves under the sway of a charismatic figure as powerful in death as he ever was in life.
Rosaline and the Marquis is dark, with some added humor and a lot of naughty! Available now at Blushing Books by clicking here.

Drench the Wench: my personal favorite, this one is a collection of sexual adventures played out at a Renaissance Fair. From elves who sneak into the faire leather shop after hours to satisfy their curiosity about human sexuality, to a dryad’s mind-blowing sex with a wizard, to the most unusual werewolf encounter you will ever read, this book is one that will make you pant and giggle naughtily in delightful turns. If this doesn't ding those sleigh bells, nothing will! Available now at Blushing Books by clicking here.

From my library to yours, I hope yours was a Merry Christmas, and that you have a happy New Year!

Remember - - Santa's watching for 2015 - there will always be another naughty list!

Thank you for reading,

Do You Remember Your First Time? #amsg #amwriting

First times are always special. That first kiss. The first time you made love. Your first book cover *wink.*

Firsts are always special. You can experience different things over and over, but out of a million memories, first times are always remembered, long after more meaningful memories have faded away.

I remember my first kiss.  More than twenty years after it happened I can still taste him on my lips. I still remember catching my breath, and rising up on my toes under that lamppost, my body set to supernova when at last our lips brushed....

Alright, alright. I know my first kiss reads like something out of a Harlequin novel, but that's okay, because that's how I remembered it. It's funny how a romance plays out in your head, no matter where you are or what you're doing. As it happens I was coming back from a pub on the local council estate in Kent where I lived with my parents. It wasn't his first kiss, and by all accounts he was 'a bit of a lad.'  I remembered I'd been drinking. We kissed within yards of my Irish parents' house - to the constant flap of a curtain every minute or so as they kept an eye on me. Not so romantic perhaps. But I didn't care. I was finally being kissed and my young, hormonal body was ripe for such an experience.

As a novelist we have so many experiences to draw from and set the scene. I know how important it is to get inside your character's head - to share their emotions and longings, and to bring their thoughts as well as actions to the page. But don't forget the background. Every painting has one behind the sitter. So every book should in some way set the scene. 

I have recently read many novellas/short stories that are almost all written as conversations between the principle characters. But we are writing novels, not plays, aren't we? So I advise against neglecting your setting. Settings add color and dimension to your world, so don't be afraid of it. The page is a blank canvass. Give it depth and you give it life. And if you hit a brick wall, and can't relate to what your character should feel in the spot you have placed them, then look inside yourself; maybe all the way back to that first time you experienced something similar. It's truly wonderful what you'll find there. On all dimensions.

Oh, just in case you wondered; above is my first novel cover, Drench The Wench published under my first nom-de-plume, P J Perryman. Two firsts in one sentence.

Thanks for reading :)

How to Write a Short Story or Novel Without Actually Buying A Book About It

Before I begin, let me throw my hands in the air and confess yes, I have bought a couple of these "How-To-Write" books. And yes, there are definitely some good ones out there, for instance, Stephen King's On-Writing: A Memoir of the Craft.

But even then, there are just as many bad books as good ones and believe me, your head will spin making sense of them all . Plus there's the question of what to buy, because you'll find a million and one options to choose from. How to write a novel, How not to write a novel, How to write a novel in 30 days, How to write a novel for children, How to write a fantasy, How to market your novel, How to get an agent, How to write a query letter, and so on and so on. Don't take my word for it. Go to Google and type, "How to write a novel," and see what comes up.
Like myself, most of the authors I know have limited funds, and so for them I have decided to compile a list of resources I've used thus far on my
writing journey. The list includes not only the craft of writing, but sites that will help you get your book out there, once it's finally written.

Absolute Write Forums: This has been by far my most valuable resource to date.  The posts in the forums have accumulated over a number of years and you can find the answer to pretty much any kind of writing question there is. But even more importantly, it's a writing community, attended by thousands of people walking similar paths to yourself.  The information there is dynamic, so totally up to the minute. Joining is free, but if you're like me and don't trust free, head over and just lurk for a while. You don't have to say or share a thing until you're ready to, but believe me, most are glad when they do.

 Writer's Digest: Although this is a magazine you can subscribe to, they have an on-line presence and there's generally a ton of useful articles you can read without spending anything at all. for example, in their search field I typed "tips for writing," and came up with an article called 5 Tips On Writing First Drafts by Chuck Sambuchino, which was a particularly interesting read. The home page currently has an interesting article on NanoWriMo month, which starts tomorrow, Nov 1. Go check it out if you have time.

Facebook: Writing is a pretty lonely profession. No one will write that story for you, so for most of us that means hours in front of you computer, armed with your own brain and, if you're lucky, a cup of tea. The great thing about FB is you can hook up with writers of similar interest, or follow the agents and publishers of your genre. Joining writing related groups is a great way to obtain industry specific information, without bugging your family and friends with all the things that you do. It's never too early to make connections and get your name out there, and FB is invaluable for that.

Twitter: Twitter is an excellent way to network with other writers and get your name out there.

Querytracker and Agentquery: The publishing world is incredibly dynamic, and what publishers and agents want to see changes at an alarming rate. You could run out and buy a copy of say, Writers and Artists Year book - but since its updated annually it could cost you a fortune in renewals every year. That said, in addition to lists, the book offers invaluable advice on the how to's of your craft, so there is a lot to be said for buying this one. Just saying. They do have a web site - and there's some useful resources there too.

Its NanoWriMo month starting November 1! The great thing about Nano is you can participate with other writers, who really push you to finally plant your backside on a chair and get the job done. I myself will be on the front line tomorrow - and you can find me under my Nano name as TypoToffee. Please fill free to add me as a writing buddy.

Ah Blogger. Perhaps the most important resource for any writer, wherever they are in their journey are the works of other writers. I suspect most of you reading this blog are avid readers, the kind who buy books before you think of what to have for dinner. (Kudos by the way.) Read writers, not just for enjoyment, but to see how they overcome the hurdles of the craft. Think about your favorite writer. What makes them stand out over everyone else? How do they do that?  Blogger and Wordpress are great ways to read the works of other writers without spending a nickel. And come to that, why not write a blog? Even before your great novel is finally written, these help to develop your readership and skills.

Everything I found was initially discovered using a search engine, such as Google. There is a treasure trove of information to be had for free on the internet, if you have the time to look. As I said at the start; these are the key resources that worked for me. Please share any sites that helped you in the comments section. I'd be happy to take a look, and love sharing useful discoveries.

Thank you for reading, and for those of you getting down to write for NanoWriMo, I wish you the very best!

Jill Jackson!

Pride and Prejudice - An Insight into Mr. Bennet

My printer refused to print this morning, and my dishwasher simply won't dissolve the soap, resulting in pans covered in a chalky white primeval gunk. What has this to do with Mr. Bennet, you might ask? Absolutely nothing in itself, but my brain will wander when dealing with mundane chores, (such as hooking up the spare printer and washing out the detergent cavity  - - YET AGAIN.)

Today's brain wander had me thinking about Mr. Bennet, and in particular the description Jane Austen gives of him in relation to his wife. Why? Because I'm reading Pride and Prejudice once more, and the books I read infiltrate my brain like food dye, coloring everything I do and think. So, what rattled me this morning was this particular passage:

Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three and twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character.

Most accounts I have read of Mr. Bennet focus on his foolhardy economic outlook, and his obtuse resistance to either support or assist his daughters in their quest for suitable husbands. To our modern sensibilities, these may be trifling matters, but back in the day such indifference would have had a tremendous negative impact on his daughter's fortunes. Today it would be like saying, "Pah, what do they need a college education for? They'll work it all out without my help."

What struck me though was something else. Like some of you, perhaps, I am SUCKED IN to the vortex of all things Austenabilia. When Death Comes to Pemberley screens on PBS I will be right there with my remote, recording for dear life. As you can imagine, I've watched Miss Austen Regrets, Becoming Jane, and every televised  Masterpiece reproduction of her work, so on some level, and like many ardent fans, I feel I know her.

So when I read this passage again last night I had one of those ah-ha! moments. There is a reason why Mr. Bennet and Elizabeth share a special bond. To my thinking they are born from the same source. Lizzy Bennet is a quirky, quick-tongued intellectual. Through her eyes we see the people-watcher inherent in all authors; she is master of the folly she sees around her, capturing it in perfect caricature, and forming her opinions accordingly, though not always correctly. Show me an author who cannot relate to this and I'll show you an impostor. Elizabeth, flaws and all, represents the character Jane herself always wanted to be.

By all accounts Jane's own father George Austen was a scholarly, rational man, not known to be reckless in his behaviors. Though not affluent by the standards of the day, the family enjoyed a comfortable middle-class living, including regular trips to the seaside and university educations for the boys. However towards the end of his life, the family moved to Bath, which though still a respectable town had long since passed its heyday. Before his death in 1805, he turned his living over to his son, James, but when he died his daughters found themselves in financial difficulty. We see Jane's feelings regarding this matter in her reflections on Mr. Bennets economy:

Mr. Bennet had very often wished, before this period of his life, that, instead of spending his whole income, he had laid by an annual sum for the better provision of his children, and of his wife, if she survived him. He now wished it more than ever. Had he done his duty in that respect, Lydia need not have been indebted to her uncle for whatever of honour or credit could now be purchased for her. The satisfaction of prevailing on one of the most worthless young men in Great Britain to be her husband might then have rested in its proper place.

This explains his pecuniary difficulties, but what of his nature? Was her father, a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice? If he was indeed a calm, scholarly man, this would hardly seem likely. So where did Jane get his character from? In the movie, Twins, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito come from a single egg, where Arnie gets all the good genes and Danny DeVito is left with all the crud. It occurred to me that Elizabeth Bennet is the ideal to which the author aspired, but Mr. Bennet reflects all the warts and follies of the woman herself. So two halves of the same coin.

As a writer I can relate. I could never live up to the ideals of my heroines, and I throw all my daftness into my villains and sub characters. I think Austen must have done pretty much the same. Does it matter? Yes and no. We people watch to better understand ourselves and our own idiosyncrasies, don't we? And understanding how people tick brings color to the characters we write about.

Anyway, look at me, getting all rallied up when I should be dealing with more practical matters. But then nobody's perfect (thank God.) And since neither the printer nor the dishwasher will fix themselves, I better get back to them, or else all hell will break lose. And I'll write about that too, sooner or later. As is only right.

Thanks for reading,

Introducing WINE SERVICE by Zenobia Renquist - Title: Wine Service (Professional Courtesy 1)

It is with great excitement that I get to announce this new book, WINE SERVICE, written by Zenobia Renquist and Publushed under Musa's new erotica line - Eros.  Eros is a spanking new imprint, specifically tailored for you naughty readers of all things erotic, and includes Erotica, BDSM, MF, MFM and much, MUCH more.

Anyways, back to Zenobia and her naughty, NAUGHTY book. The canny lass has provided everything you need to know down below **wink.** Enjoy!
"She offers satisfaction above and beyond what is requested."
Lexie's job as a housekeeper at a five-star hotel doesn't normally include the unique and risqué form of room service that important hotel guest Mr. Malena has requested, nor the generous tip he's offered. Lexie can't resist, and what should have been a one-time thing turns into an introduction into the sensual world of customer satisfaction. She finds much enjoyment in her "work," but is it worth risking her job?

Story Tidbit:

Research is always key to telling a good story when an author doesn’t have personal knowledge of a specific topic. Let me just say the amount of videos and photos I stumbled across researching the scenes for this title were equal parts interesting and scary. Amateurs and cameras and too many places that allow uploads—that’s all I have to say about that. In the end, I found what I needed to make this title work for me.



“I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of seeing that.” Mr. Malena scooped his arm under her shoulders and helped her sit up. “How do you feel?”

“Really, really good.”

“You look it. You’re grinning a mile wide.”

Now that he mentioned it, she was. She couldn’t stop. Whatever chemical releases occurred during orgasm had her happy as hell. Nothing that happened after this would diminish this euphoric high—not even returning to work.

“Thank you,” she said.

“No. I thank you. I could think of no better way to spend my afternoon. It’s a shame you have to leave, or else I would find more things to stuff inside you.”

She clenched around the plug. It didn’t cross her mind once while she was enjoying the bottle, but she was sure it had played a part in her orgasm.

Mr. Malena climbed off the bed and brought her with him. He kept a hand on her waist to hold her steady. “Go shower and get dressed. Leave in the plug. I’ll take it out once you return with my new comforter.”


Lexie moved as if clouds carried her. She wasn’t sure her feet touched the ground. She was glad she’d returned. Today had surpassed yesterday. If tomorrow did the same, she would be hooked, not that she wasn’t already.

After her shower, she retrieved her bra and panties—the ones she’d brought with her to wear when working. Knowing the demi-cup bra wouldn’t be comfortable for her workday and that Mr. Malena would probably want to keep her thong, she’d packed a small bag that she’d stashed in the serving cart. She wasn’t going sans panties again. Once was enough. It had only been for twenty minutes yesterday, but that had been too long dreading the moment someone would notice she wasn’t wearing any.

Zenobia Renquist is an Air Force brat turned Air Force wife. She and her husband are owned by two demanding cats of the long-haired persuasion. Born in Europe and currently stationed in Hawaii, Zenobia has been traveling all her life. "Where are you from?" is not a question she likes to be asked but will usually answer Virginia, because it's the one place that feels like home.


Zenobia's stories range from steamy to scorching and she writes whichever genre catches her interest at the time. When not coming up with ways to torture her characters, she enjoys knitting and crochet (both regular and Tunisian) as well as reading shoujo and yaoi manga.

Jill's Coffee Corner - Reviewing the recently released Lab Rat's Love by Ana Phoenix - Published by Loose-id

I thought it might be fun to host a review each week of the best out there in the erotica genre. But let me just say this - I'm not Gordon Ramsay, and I would prefer to focus on what does work (at least for me), rather than literary disasters.  Therefore it goes without saying that not every book I read is going to get a mention. So read on only if you're looking for the best of the best. Who am I to judge, you might say? Hell, we all know this is a subjective business, so all I can offer is my time and humble opinion. That said, now to the cream...

Lab Rat's Love by Ana Phoenix - Published by Loose-id (review below.)

Lab Rat's Love is a M/M erotica/romance with some light bondage and graphic language.

Book Summary: When Nex blows all his money on drugs and gambling, Kane offers to pay off his debts. But his generosity comes at a price: Nex has to become his lab rat. Kane’s company has developed a sex chip, and Nex is the only eligible test candidate.

Nex doesn’t mind having kinky sex with a drop-dead gorgeous CEO for testing purposes. Even less so when Kane turns out to be all Nex ever wanted in a Dom and in a boyfriend. There’s only one problem. Kane used to live with Nex’s deceased twin, someone who Kane may still be hung up on, even if he denies it.

Still, Nex wants Kane, and he knows there’s only one way to get him: kick the drugs and stay clean — before his addiction ruins the experiment and their budding relationship.

Content Warnings: Graphic sex, kink, mentions of self-harm and suicide/death

: He kept his eyes shut and his mouth open. At a particularly hard strike, he winced. Kane paused, and Nex caught his breath.

“I think you’ve deserved these,” Kane said, crawling over Nex and making him lift his hands up to the headboard. Eyes still closed and thoughts swimming, Nex breathed him in. His cock was painfully hard as it brushed against the sheets. Kane took something else out of the drawer. Something that rattled. Nex’s heart skipped a beat. Was it…?

Cold metal closed around Nex’s wrists, and he sighed, content, sinking into the feeling.

“Someone likes chains,” Kane said as he attached the metal to the hook with a clinking sound. “Someone likes chains a lot.”

Nex wanted to tell Kane to shut up and go on, but he felt too boneless to put his thoughts into words. Taking a deep breath, he tested the give of the chains. He couldn’t lower his hands, and the restriction gave him all kinds of funny, good feelings. Kane slid his hands down Nex’s naked body as Nex lay in the chains, shivering at the touch.

“They look good on you,” Kane said, appreciative. Another piece of metal was attached to Nex’s legs. A spreader bar, Nex realized with a jolt to his cock. Jesus, Rich Guy really did have it all. Nex’s dick jumped as Kane spread his legs, and he exhaled into the sheets.

“Fuck me,” he mumbled.

"Patience, sweetheart.”

Looking back at him, Nex saw him pick the flogger up again. Nex swallowed, his eyes glazing over. Kane smiled. And struck. Nex sank back into the sheets, feeling the sting more intensely than he had before. He didn’t have to focus on not moving anymore, that responsibility was taken from him, and it left him free to focus only on what Kane was doing to him. He pulled on the chains as the hits came harder, but they held, and Nex moaned at the bite of metal on his skin and leather on his ass.


Jill's Coffee Corner Review: The thing that stands out most for me in Ana's novel is the depth and dimensions of the characters. The protagonist Nex is a wash-out, a junkie, someone who if you saw him on the street you would automatically cross over to the other side. Think Renton in Trainspotting, and you might be on the right track.
Yet though your first instinct is to hate him, Ana teases you with his passion and humanity, and before you know it, you're in a love~hate relationship with a most unlikely partner. And you don't even feel her going in! Kane is his dead brother's business partner. Drawn to Nex by an unexpected need, there is sexual tension between the two men from page one, that continues right through to the last page.

The sex is hot and well written, as you would expect from any offering from Loose-id - but this one is a little bit special, because she puts you right in bed with both characters on an equal footing. This is Ana's first book with Loose-id and I would award it four chili's on the JJ heat scale.  For more about Ana herself, please visit her on her blog,

Overall - the book gets five stars for content and readability.

So, to those who love, and love to read,
I thank you for stopping by! JJ

Cover Reveal and New Release - Lady Charity and the Guilty Pleasure

It is with much excitement I announce the launch of my book, Lady Charity and the Guilty Pleasure, published through Blushing Books. This book explores the difference between fantasy and reality, seen through the eyes of a young lady. As a woman born in another time, Charity has little control of her life, which becomes evident when her affections fall in an unsuitable direction.

Her weakness is exploited by an unscrupulous suitor, who suppresses a true love of his own to aspire to her rank and title.  Not your usual erotica, Lady Charity and the Guilty Pleasure is primarily a traditional Regency romance, and the erotica is represented in a forbidden book she reads.  If you love passion, intrigue, and a strong plot that falls outside the usual mold, then check me out on the links below :)

Click for links to purchase:
Now available at Blushing Books

Enjoy with my best regards! Let me know how you liked it!
