My First Spanking debuts at Shadow Lane
7 pm Friday in Room 1037
Rad and I arrived in Las Vegas on Wednesday. Our good friend Brad Dare met us at the airport and we all shared a rental car to the hotel. Thanks, Brad! Always nice to see friends early when you arrive at a spanking party. We’re all looking forward to a long weekend of fabulous adventures at #ShadowLane2015 (#Suite_Surrender).
One of my adventures this year will be the book launch and signing party for my newest book, My First Spanking. The launch takes place tonight (Friday) from 7-9 pm in room 1037. Eve Howard and Tony Elka, Shadow Lane hosts, have agreed to allow a selection of vendors set up in this room on Friday night. Others will be vending out of their rooms, with balloons on the doors indicating they are open for business.
Now, about My First Spanking. This was first published as an ebook in 2012. Earlier this year, the book’s publisher allowed me to take the rights back, and I self-published it as a print book for the first time, adding a new story by Brad Dare, “A Cheerful Discussion.” This real-life story is a fond memory of how a nerdy senior class president got to spank a bratty but sexy cheerleader. This is Brad’s first appearance in an anthology, and I am grateful for the hard work he put into writing the story as well as working back and forth with his whip-cracking editor on fine-tuning it.
Brad’s story was from real life. My story (“Taking it For the Team”) was inspired by real life. I wrote in the foreword:
“The story I contributed to “My First Spanking” is an amalgamation of the young girl I was, several old boyfriends, and the consensual/nonconsensual scene that occurred the first time a man dominated me. It was scary, painful, and I had never been so turned on. So the story is a bit of real life, a bit of fantasy.
“Some of the stories here are real-life first spankings, too, such as “Scene and Heard,” a girl-on-girl story about a stranger taking charge unexpectedly. The lust, the urgency, and the surprise of the female narrator make this an incredibly powerful story. It feels real, and as the author wrote me, ‘It was exactly how it happened—well, almost.’
“…Stories in this collection represent men spanking women, women spanking men, women spanking women, and one retaliatory but enlightening “gang spanking” (“Giving the Devil her Due”). More than half of the collection features heterosexual couples, but I aimed for balance, with a primary goal of picking the juiciest tales.
“Yes, there’s sex, or at least hints of it, within. Throughout this collection about first spankings, we find characters discovering how much giving and taking a spanking turns them on.
“I hope these stories bring back some of your own memories of your first spanking, get you thinking about some of the blissful places a good paddling can take you, and maybe get you planning your next scene.”
Here are featured My First Spanking authors who are attending Shadow Lane this year or have attended in the past:
Brad Dare (“A Cheerful Discussion”) is a lawyer who loves ice hockey, spanking and spending time with friends and family. He grew up in the West and now resides between Baltimore and Washington, DC. At national spanking parties, he can usually be found gathering troops for a cigar party where people chill out and celebrate life.
Serenity Everton (“Turning Tramp”) is a part-time kinky romance writer, a full-time wife and mother, and a full-time worker bee. She lives with her husband and daughter somewhere in the enormous state of California, travels too often for it to be enjoyable, drives as little as possible, and gets spanked several times a week. The author looks forward either to retirement or her daughter’s teenage years, so that she has more time to write.
Erica Scott (“Just Ask Me”) is a writer, blogger, and occasional spanking video performer. She has worked with several companies, including Shadow Lane, Spanking Epics, Sarah Gregory Spanking, Northern Spanking Institute, and Triple AAA Spanking, and enjoys spanking play often in her personal life as well. When she is not horizontal, she works as a freelance proofreader. Read her blog, ericalscott.wordpress.com, and check out her books: Late Bloomer (an autobiography), Correspondence Hall of Shame, and What Happens to Naughty Girls?
Dolly Wylde (“Tasked to Perfection”) writes science fiction, fantasy, and erotica, and has been a lifestyle player active in the spanking and BDSM community since 2004. Her spanking stories have been published on ShadowLane.com.
The book also includes stories from Naomi Bellina, Jacquelie Brocker, J. Caladine, Clarice Clique, Courtney, Angel Propps, and T.R. Verten.
Looking forward to seeing my Shadow Lane friends tonight at the book launch!
