Publishing Snafu – Just Between Us

I write romance as Vallory Vance.

I write erotica as Cecile Duval.

So this weekend, while under the influence of a muscle relaxer, the two worlds collided. Just Between Us, an erotic flash fiction piece. was published under the name of Vallory Vance. This is my public apology for anyone who picked up the work looking for a romantic HEA because you aren’t going to get one.

Just Between Us is the story of three roommates who become intimately acquainted one sunny afternoon. They don’t fall in love, at least not in this story. It is a story of exploration not only sexual but intellectual. As one of the heroes asks the heroine, “What did you expect a man who enjoyed watching his wife being pleasured to look like?”

Psychology graduate student, Mara Brighton, gets her answer and hopefully erotica readers will get theirs as well.

Now if you are interested, Just Between Us is available FREE from Smashwords with the coupon code, KR79L, until tomorrow!

Beautiful woman making a hushing gestureEve Calloway, a grad student in the study of human sexual behavior, has a paper to complete. And in all of the porno flicks she’d viewed there was nothing that made her want to take part in any of the acts she’d watched.
That was until one of her roommates caught her masturbating and the other eased his hands up her quivering thighs. Then research took on a whole new meaning.

Heat Wave by Sophie Stevens (story 2):

Jack and Haley are still a little high from their mid-traffic tryst when they finally reach the secluded cabin, which was to be the setting for their five-year college reunion. However, when they find the place empty and realize that they’d arrived a day early, they’re both a little worried – the house is bolted shut and the drive home is extremely unappealing, considering they’d spent the entire day trapped in a car.

Jack manages to find working lights in the backyard, and it seems like a miracle; discovering the hot tub is just a surprising bonus. Thrilled at the prospect of being warm all night – and in more ways than one – the couple waste no time jumping in.

Off the Road by Sophie Stevens (story 3):

In the third and final part, Jack and Haley have had an eventful weekend together and are on their way home, when Haley finds herself bored silly. She decides to have some fun by teasing Jack, but he isn’t too pleased with her antics. He pulls over on the side of an empty road and proceeds to show her exactly how he deals with women who are a menace on the road.

Claire’s Journey by Cecile Duval

I don’t write romance. Claire Saunders and Gerard Pontillier spoke to me. I dictated their story. Electronic publishing platforms gave them to the world. C’est tout!

a beautiful vintage mirrorClaire Saunders is searching for something…anything to make one more night in a business class hotel bearable. An internet search in the wee hours of the morning brings her to The Blackbird Group, an organization that links like-minded individuals. What she really wants is unclear but with the help of a young man, looking to relive his first sexual experience with his sister’s Somali nanny, she may have found what she needed all along.

EXCERPT:

Littleton, South Carolina

Gerard Pontillier, walked alone back to his house. The fun on the beach was not what he was looking for now. His friends would understand and attribute his sudden departure to homesickness. Since returning from Vancouver two weeks ago, he had been noticeably sullen.

Of course, missing his family was not the reason. There had been no messages from Kandi. He had searched the site almost hourly for any sign that she had been active.

Stupid kiss.

He would most likely never see her again. She was probably turned off and afraid. There was something more intimate about kissing than fucking and being fucked. Especially the kissing they’d done – long slow deep caresses. That was something you shared with a lover not a dominant for hire. He’d crossed the line.

He circled through the rooms of the small beach house and wound up where his feet were surely taking him all along. To his bedroom….to his desk…to his computer.

The Blackbird site was pinned to his search bar and he only had to tap the mouse and enter his password. He immediately clicked Kandi’s profile.

She was now at a little over nine hundred views. Twelve more than she’d had this morning. She was not in the top profiles of those interested in black women for the Blackbird crowd, they wanted younger and curvier.

His fantasy, though, had evolved from his first experiences with his sister’s Somali nanny. For his eighteenth birthday, Lina had given an awkward gangly teenager the best gift of all times. She’d let him watch her masturbate while he jerked off over her. During the next few years, Lina had taught him well.

He had been despondent when his parents decided that his sister no longer needed supervision. Lina was gone. Though they kept in touch through emails, it was never the same. He had found the Blackbird group in a search after a dreadful night with his latest girlfriend when his thoughts had once again turned to Lina.

Now his thoughts turned to Kandi and he brought up their previous conversations – all the things he wouldn’t get to enjoy doing to her.

He slipped his cock out of the swim shorts and began stroking himself as he read. He jerked himself into the memory of exploding inside her.

Dark Pleasures – Claire’s Journey is available through March 25, 2013 as a free download from Smashwords with coupon code BV65E.

Val’s Top Ten Posts of 2012

This is my highlight reel of the past year, thanks to a nifty sorting technique I was able to view my top ten posts of the year and it includes some of my favorite posts and favorite guests!:

10. A Long Sloe Comfortable Screw Up Against A Wall – This post is actually a recipe for the drink that is featured in my short story, A Night at the Wesley.

9. Introducing The Dark Sentinels – Sable – Author Dariel Raye introduced The Dark Sentinels series and the rare breed of wolf shifters.

8. Sunday Snippet With Deneice Tarbox – Deneice stopped by the blog to talk about her two novels, Healing Inc. and Finding Love For A Cynic. I didn’t know it then but Finding Love For A Cynic would become one of my favorite reads this summer.

7. Passionate Cook Sharon Kleve Shares a Romantic Menu – Sharon shared a great menu for a special date night and a little about her book, Klutzy Love.

6. Sunday Morning Chat Hosted by Anne Ashby – Anne came over from New Zealand to interview her heroine, Jodie Mathieson, from Wilderness Liason and got a surprise. She had to chase the woman down and her questions weren’t ever answered. LOL! One of the funniest posts!

5. An Interview with Marla Malone by Jason Jaxx – A big thank you to Jason for stopping by the blog and convincing Marla to come along with him. His erotic works can be found in the Fantasies4U series starting with Ashley’s Craving.

4. interracial desire and passionate sex hand on assAfter Party A New Sensual Short – This post talks about a short story of mine available on Barnes and Noble and Smashwords. If you haven’t seen the cover, it’s a little much. But I figured the couple was married so in my mind it’s okay.

3. Today’s Hero Dalton Beck with Yvonne Harriot – The lovely Yvonne Harriot visited the blog and interviewed her hero, Dalton Beck, from Hide ‘N Seek and got a little more than she bargained for when she met the handsome man. I’m glad I’m not the only one who loses it when confronted with our own creations.

2. Today’s Hero Clark Pinot with Nevea Lane – Oh hotness, Clark Pinot from Falling Leaves in Autumn a violet eyed hero who doesn’t chase but pursues! Nevea did a wonderful job of interviewing this man and keeping her cool at the same time.

1. The Color of Inspiration – This is one of my favorite posts of the year. It continues to get hits and comments even though it was posted in May. This is a statistical analysis of interracial marriages in the US. Want to know how many African American women marry outside of their race? Only about 9%!

Thank you so much for following my blog throughout the year! I truly appreciate every visitor and every comment.

Happy New Year!

Cover Spotlight – The Modesty Diaries

The woman behind the Modesty Diaries

Katie Ellison is a 40-something housewife, mother, lover . . . along with her husband of 30 years she currently lives in London.

Over the past few years her personal life has exploded from a wonderfully liberated, but monogamous, marriage . . . into an amazing journey of occasional lovers and, most recently, to experiencing a full “swinging” lifestyle.

She has always enjoyed a loving, open and sexually adventurous relationship with her husband. Their love for each other was complete and never in question.

And yet, she still strayed. Un-expected, un-planned . . . something she never thought she (of all people) would, or could, ever do. And yet it happened. Lunchtime coffees with a work colleague, turned into evening meals, turned into . . .

Someone else liked her! Wanted her! Aroused her! Excited her! She couldn’t help herself . . . even the complete feelings of guilt and shame in the aftermath, couldn’t stop her. She enjoyed it, wanted it, needed it.

Her husband insists he suspected / knew right from the start . . . but for several months said nothing. Their sex (after her “meetings”) was passionate and more fulfilling than ever. And with pangs of guilt the next morning, she would tell herself she would stop the affair, she didn’t need it, it was wrong, it was immoral.

But she couldn’t stop, she couldn’t say no, she couldn’t refuse, she couldn’t deny it . . .

. . . just as she couldn’t deny it the day her husband confronted her with “the question”.

She thought it would shatter their world and be the end of their marriage, that there would be an explosive argument, floods of tears and abuse. But INSTEAD her husband told her he LOVED it . . . he LOVED the fact that she could experience the excitement and thrills of sexual adventure and pleasure with another man.

That day changed their lives . . . and, in Katie’s view, made them each better people . . . and it made their relationship EVEN stronger and more loving and more fulfilling than either could ever have imagined.

That day was over 20 years ago!!! The different months and years (and yes different lovers) for Katie, since have been a wonderful and incredible adventure . . .

“The Modesty Diaries” began as Katie’s secret release. Typing out brief accounts of her affairs . . . they grew into extended accounts for her and her husband to relive her adventures, together after the event.

Now, in 2012, Katie is turning them into published diaries of many of the most memorable of her meetings and liaisons over the past decade

These diaries are autobiographical accounts, not fictional, only the names and locations have been changed to protect the “not so innocent”

ArrivalCoverFINAL300The Modesty Diaries Pt 2: Arrivals & Departures
Vince was the unlikeliest of all her lovers. Almost half her age, and seconded to her department on a temporary placement from the Paris office.

The CEO had asked that he be made welcome and helped to settle in to develop a higher European profile for the company.

Her initial upset at being given this unwanted responsibility, was soon swayed by the young Frenchman’s wit and charm . . . and, of course, that lovely accent!!

For Katie and her husband James, this latest affair was yet another catalyst to add further passion and sexcitement to their wonderful ‘open-marriage’.

But is the eight weeks of lust and adventure with Vince fated to end with a months separation and then just a few hours shared between Heathrow arrivals and departures?

Balcony600FinalThe Modesty Diaries Pt 3: The Balcony
Vince is Katie’s most recent lover. New in the office, and 20 years her junior.

Their affair is in it’s second month and just beginning to blossom. They have already shared several evenings in his Docklands apartment, knowing that due to his imminent return to the Paris office, every indulgent moment has to be cherished and enjoyed.

His candour and youthful charm has already taken Katie into new levels of excitement and passion. But tonight’s embrace on the balcony overlooking the river, is just the start of an even wilder evening than she could have ever imagined herself embarking upon.

An evening that ends in her giving herself even more completely than ever to her young Frenchman . . . and an exciting confession to make to husband James when she returns home.

An Interview with Marla Malone by Jason Jaxx

Marla Malone is the project co-coordinator, chief facilitator and customer liaison for Fantasies4U, a company that aims to match clients up to their fantasies in order to fulfill them in a secure environment where discretion and confidentiality are of paramount importance.

After much negotiation and guarantees, Ms. Malone finally agreed to this interview on the grounds that I agree to follow the same rigorous screening procedure that all her clients have to undergo. Although I was not permitted access to any client records or meet any of her customers, she was prepared to discuss specific cases as long as anonymity was preserved. Obviously, I agreed and after a hectic week of appointments, documentation and phone calls, I was finally told to meet her at a secret location.

Ms. Malone (not her real name, she informed me with a grin) is a beautiful 30-something brunette with piercing eyes, a fiendish smile and a body that proved something of a distraction. She is extremely professional in her attitude and behavior but has an irresistible flirtatious side that sneaks through. Hopefully this comes across in the written form as sensually as it did in person.

Jason Jaxx: Hi, Ms. Malone. Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions.

Marla Malone:  Please, Mr. Jaxx, call me Marla.

JJ: Ok, Marla but only if I’m Jason.

MM: As you wish…Jason.

JJ: Is this the first time a representative from your company has agreed to be interviewed?

MM: Yes, you were the first person who agreed to follow our procedures and effectively become a client of ours. Did you enjoy your session?

JJ: (coughs) Ah, yes, very much so. However, I’d like to get back to you and the company, Fantasies4U. Could you maybe explain to the readers what exactly it is that you do?

MM: Well, Jason, we specialize in matching our clients’ fantasies. So, for example, someone may have a yearning to be dominant and we will try to match them someone who expresses a desire to be submissive.

JJ: And how does that work exactly? I would imagine that one doesn’t just arrive here and demand a suitable partner.

MM: No, the initial contact is kept as anonymous as possible until both parties (us and the potential client) are certain that we wish to pursue this course. All our clients go through a screening procedure and are required to meet several stringent medical, personal and professional criteria. You have gone through this process so can speak to its thoroughness.

JJ: Indeed. I can also vouch for the security as the confidentially clause and waivers I had to sign were quite thorough.

MM: Yes, I’m glad you mentioned it so I didn’t have to remind you.

JJ: You will get a copy of this transcript before I send it off

MM: Yes.

JJ: So once everything has been checked and signed off?

MM: We arrange a date and time for the appointment and the parties meet up. At this point, having made the introduction, we usually excuse ourselves from further interactions. We cannot legally suggest or guarantee any activity, sexual or otherwise, that may take place. We do guarantee confidentiality and security and our track record proves that this is something we can deliver on.

JJ: Aren’t you ever tempted to join in?

MM: (raises eyebrow in a most arresting manner) Of course. I would have thought that it was obvious after…..

JJ: (interrupts) Ah, yes, moving on. What makes your services different from any other dating or adult chat site?

MM: That’s an important question. Firstly, we’re not looking to set people up for dating or long-term relationships. It is also not about chatting or sexting. This is real people meeting up with other real people to share their innermost desires.

JJ: Surely there are other ways to acquire such services?

MM: We at Fantasies4U have no issues with sex workers or escorts but once again that is not the service we provide. With us, you are getting willing participants eager to live out their sexual needs without payment being a motivation.

JJ: Money does change hands though.

MM: Yes, but not between clients. We charge an administrative fee to cover our costs and yes, we are out to make a profit but we believe the quality of service you get in return is worth the price.

JJ: I would certainly attest to that.

MM: Thank you.

JJ: Ahem. Could you maybe give us an example of the services you provide? Without violating any confidentiality, obviously.

MM: Obviously.Let me see. (pauses, tapping her perfectly manicured nails on the arm of her chair) We had a client recently, let’s call her Ms. A., who told us she had a craving to be taken by two unknown men in a submissive role.

JJ: Ok

MM: She had, I assume still has, a husband and so couldn’t really go to a bar, club or dating site without running the risk of ruining her marriage. We offered her an alternative method, an opportunity for pleasure that she seized willingly and .with complete understanding of what she signed up for.

JJ: Did she enjoy it?

MM: Judging by the reaction of her and the two gentlemen we selected for her, I am happy to report that our 100% customer satisfaction record is still intact.

JJ: Has she come back?

MM: I think that’s enough about Ms. A for now, Jason. However we have had several repeat customers. There was also a client, an inquisitive man, who was interested in having sex with a woman while been serviced by another with a large strap-on and a …

JJ: (interrupting) Hmmm, yes, I think that the client example you already provided will be sufficient for this piece.

MM: (crosses legs slowly and smiles enigmatically with closed lips) Indeed.

JJ: Can a client request a specific partner?

MM: Yes, although we cannot guarantee that your request will be granted as all parties have to agree on meeting. We also tend to find that if people hit it off, they no longer require our services to meet up.

JJ: Do you enjoy your work?

MM: (looking at me as if I had asked if water was wet) Yes, Jason. I love it. Providing sexual fulfillment to those who think it is beyond their reach. Who wouldn’t enjoy it?

JJ: Well,…..

MM: (snaps, as if annoyed but her eyes are sparkling in the most mischievous manner) Yes, yes, there are the prudes and the fuddy-duddies and the censors who wish to drag us back to some bygone Puritanical era. I would assume that no-one who reads your books or this interview would fall into that category so I am excluding them from this discussion

JJ: Fair enough. In that case, I would imagine that you have a dream job.

MM: Yes. The stuff fantasies are made of.

JJ: Indeed. What about those who accuse you of providing for the erotic needs but ignoring the romance?

MM: (eyebrow cocked again) I’m not sure who these accusers are, Jason but to them I would say that sex and the erotic arts are born of and can lead to acts of romance and to try separate the two is a needless act of prurience. I would also say that such people are making the wild assumption that only people who are after sexual fantasies avail themselves of our services. We provide an intimate setting catered to our clients needs and often in such an environment, things can take an unexpected turn. The person you thought was going to fuck your brains out is instead someone you end up having a meal and conversation with. As I said earlier, we are not interested in being or advertise ourselves as a matchmaking company but I can attest to several relationships that have either blossomed or been saved as a direct result of our assistance.

JJ: I think that’s as good a place as any to conclude our chat. Thank you for your time Marla.

MM: My pleasure. I hope you found your time with us….enlightening.

JJ: If people are interested in finding out more, how can they contact you?

MM: We have advertisements on several prominent web sites or we can be reached on Twitter using @Fantasies4U.

I would like to thank Ms Malone and all the staff at Fantasies4U for allowing me the opportunity of this interview and providing me access to their excellent services…

The 51st Shade – Gray Interviewed by Chris McC

I was offered this opportunity to interview one of my characters…any of them, really.  Quite unique to interview your own creation, really…in a sense it is like interviewing your own child, just a bit wackier.

So, I first picked the coffee shop where I would do it.  I picked a quaint little place…no, not a chain…in an area of Toronto called Yorkdale.  Better I do it somewhere very public in case things go south.

The next part was whom I would invite to join me.  So many to choose from, and yet I knew immediately whom it had to be.  Having killed him off, it could only be Gray…

When he walked into the place, his hair and whiskers were their usual salt and pepper but a bit longer and scruffier.  His Levis were black and his black tee-shirt was tight enough to show off his muscular frame.  He sat down across the table from me and scanned around the room with concern to see if anyone was watching.  His blue eyes finally rested on me with a glare that would have cut through bricks…

Gray – Why could you not have chosen one of the women?  Dude, this is awkward.

Me – Nice to see you, too.  I figured you and I had not talked in a long time.  It has been more than a year now.  How have you been?

Gray – Dead, thanks to you.  How are you?

Me – I am good.  Still writing.

Gray – That is great to hear.  So why did you kill me off?  Now, don’t get me wrong, you killed me off while I was getting laid, and I can appreciate that…but why?

Me – It just seemed a good time for you to go.

Gray – And it was, but I didn’t want to go.

Me – So what have you been doing?

Gray – What do you think I’ve been doing?  I’ve been trying to figure a way out for you to resurrect me.

Me – Now why would I want to do that?

Gray – Dude, it’s me.

Me – What? Are you like Han Solo or something?

Gray – Yeah, only better.   I wish you’d send me back to Australia.  That was an awesome trip.

Me – That was the trip that you accidentally slept with the sister of the woman you traveled there to meet.

Gray – There’s no accidents, I tell ya.  Alex, my twin brother…you remember Alex, right?

Me – Of course.

Gray – He was so pissed off when he realized I got the wrong twin.  He was even more upset when he found out I got both of them.

Me – I bet.  What about the photo session?

Gray – Oh, man, I forgot about that one.  Takes some kind of lady’s man to get two gorgeous women to do a shoot like that.

Me – That or a wad of cash.

Gray – I just wish the blasted camera had worked…and that they hadn’t both left before I got undressed.

Me – Lady’s man?

Gray – Hey, I had a lot of gorgeous women.

Me – Yeah, I recall a blonde you met when you lost the bet.

Gray – She was envious, man.  She got one look at this naked physique and she wanted it.

Me – Even with the shrivel factor of sub-freezing temperatures.

Gray – I should have killed Grace for that.  That was bloody cold and unfair.

Me – Why did you not end up with Grace?

Gray – You killed me, remember?  She was awesome, though.  She really was not the type I ever expected to be with.  She always reminded me of Bailey from WKRP.  Was that who you had in mind for her?

Me – Not initially but she evolved that way.  She was missing the glasses, though.

Gray – Yeah, Bailey and Jennifer on that show were like an 80s version of Marianne and Ginger.  Grace was not the statuesque blonde I figured I should be with…but I did love her.  Just never realized it until…

Me – Until?

Gray – I guess I just didn’t see the end coming.  I was so busy thinking with my little head and ego that I missed the bigger picture.  Then you go all Joss Whedon on my ass and kill off a main character…you bastard.

Me – So if I were to resurrect you, what would you do differently this time?

Gray – For one, I would finish university.  Truth is picking up garbage might be great for the physique, but it really doesn’t do much for the image.  I always wanted to get into film production.

Me – That would be fantastic.

Gray – Yeah, like that other character you had.  Always wish you did a cross over story with me and that guy Director Jake.  I thought he was brilliant.

Me – Oh, so by film you mean…

Gray – I would love to shoot porn.

Me – Of course you would.  What would Grace think?

Gray – She’d never let me.  Truth is, I’d love it if you’d write her and I into a real romantic erotic piece.  That would be perfect.

Me – She’s really not the erotic type leading lady, though.

Gray – Dude, who are you kidding?  All your characters are flawed, and she would fit that perfectly.

Me – Perhaps she would.

Gray – Do me a favour though.

Me – What’s that?

Gray – If you do bring me back, don’t put me in any more stories with that chump Cliff.  He scares me with his dreams.

Me – No promises.

Gray – Is it odd that I have a Duncan Sheik tune in my head?

Me – Which one?

Gray – I’m not sure.  There is this line in it that goes: “We won’t say anything, we are ghosts, we just sing…”

Me – Great song, that one.  “Take a Bow” from his last album…oddly appropriate for you, speaking of flawed heroes.

Grey – Hero?  Not sure I’ve ever thought of myself that way.  I suppose if all of this has taught me anything it is that I should love…I should sing…

Me – That’s another line from the song, you dolt.

Grey – Oh, sorry…damn, this coffee is cold.  They don’t serve beer here, do they?
