What’s better than a gift the day after Christmas?

A gift that’s a total surprise the day after Christmas! πŸ˜€Β  It’s my pleasure to announce a story from someone who hadn’t even mentioned she’d be participating: Stardawn Cabot! I know spanking literature fans are familiar with that name, but this is the first time she’s participating in the annual gift exchange, so please let her know how much you liked her story, and maybe she’ll participate again next year. πŸ˜‰

You can find it posted on the Links page, or click on it here: Candy Caned.

Another gift to enjoy

The latest present under the tree comes to us from Peach, and it’s posted on her own blog, Peach’s Corner. What’s amazing about this story is she pretty much whipped it out after a long trip, on a night when she was suffering from insomnia/jetlag. It’s a testament to her rich fantasy life that she could pull a plot out of thin air like that!Β  πŸ˜€

Be sure you let her know how much you enjoyed it, and how it’s been too long since we’ve had a story from her (hint, hint). Find it on the Links & Xmas Exchange page, or go straight to her site here: Rosy Cheeked Christmas.

Another present under the tree

The second story of our gift exchange is ready for your perusal, and it’s also from a first-time participant. (How come these newbies are putting us “old-timers” to shame?!Β  πŸ˜€ )

Thanks to Jojo for her gift, Elf Warning!, which you can find on the Links page. Be sure to let her know how much you enjoyed it, so she’ll come back next year too. πŸ™‚

(I forgot to mention, if you prefer to post your story on your own blog, that’s totally fine too! Just send me the link and I will add it to the Xmas Exchange page.)

And the gifting begins….

Well, as early as this might seem (if you’re like me, you haven’t even started your story yet….yikes!), I’ve actually held onto this present for awhile. Wookie sent me her story a couple of months ago, but I didn’t want to post it too early.

However it’s now getting closer to Christmas, and I’m sure everyone will appreciate getting into the holiday spirit. So here it is, the first official gift of the 2017 Holiday Exchange: Paper Warrior by Wookie. Be sure to let her know how much you liked it, after congratulating her for being so darned efficient! *LOL*

12/24/17: Updated to link directly to Wookie’s blog. You can find her blog here: Yankee Top ∞ Brit Brat.

New story up (a belated Thanksgiving :)

I meant to have my next book published as a sort of Thanksgiving present, but RL intervened, and it didn’t happen. So here it is, a few days late, but it does come with all the gratitude I’m capable of. I am extremely thankful for anyone who’s supported my work, whether or not you’ve purchased a story/book. The letters, reviews, and purchases lift my spirits and keep me grounded at the same time. Mahalo nui loa (as they say in Hawaii) for all your support.

And so here it is (finally), the series which started as a fun tale set in post-Tudor times (approximately), and evolved into a deeply satisfying relationship — the story about Rowan and Queen Brise. Old-time readers will note that the “middle story” is completely new, as the original piece was written by Tenth Muse Top, a woman whose work is stirring and irreplaceable, and I know we all grieve its disappearance from the Net.

I’ve tried to provide a different direction for the trilogy, and I hope you will all find it hot in its own way. πŸ™‚Β  Β Oh, and a great big THANKS to Mil, who helped me with the cover. I’m sure discerning readers will note her special touch resulted in a much more professional look than usual! I do my best, but I’m clearly not the artist in the relationship. *LOL*

Find the thumbnail of the new cover on my “business site” (http://alyxrancher.com), or use this link: By Authority of the Queen. Any reviews will be MUCH appreciated! πŸ™‚

What I’ve been up to….

Hi everyone. I’ve posted an update on AlyxRancher.com, but just to let you know I haven’t disappeared entirely. It’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride personally, with people near me having quite serious health issues. So just a reminder to cherish the ones you love, and cherish life itself. Physical or mental health can be taken from one without notice.

That’s not meant to be a downer, but more of an encouragement to REALLY enjoy your life. πŸ™‚ Anyway, be on the lookout for a new book on Amazon, which I hope to announce in a little while. And have a Happy Halloween/Spectacular Samhain, as this is my favorite time of the year.

Hugs to all of you.

New anthology coming out!

Hey Readers of Spanko Fare, I have some great news! A new anthology of spanking stories — with the theme of “first times,” however the authors interpret that πŸ˜€Β  — is scheduled to be published on Amazon on Sept. 7.

Organized by well-known kink authors Stardawn Cabot and Claire Britain, and edited by Stardawn, it features both published authors and brand newbies who all came together for this special project. The nicest thing is that all proceeds will be donated to charity, rather than to the authors themselves.

So be on the lookout for the anthology launching Sept. 7 (see cover below), and be sure to support this great project. (I’m not sure you can claim “reading/purchasing spanking romance” as a charitable deduction on your tax returns, but hey, it’s worth a shot!Β  πŸ˜‰ )
