#sneakpeek That feeling when…
…your editor says your Dom hero is as big a bastard (understandably so) as you’ve been warning your readers. LOL This is from edits for Come in From the Cold (Suncoast Society 77, MM, BDSM, writing as Tymber Dalton). The “filthy Dom vs former priest” story I’ve been teasing in my Tymber’s Trybe readers group. … Read More

Amazon rank-stripping erotica books and authors.
(Latest Edit: 3/29/2018 – 10:15pm – Most of my book rankings are now back. Back-end at Author Central I still can’t see my author ranking for Kindle/erotica and Books/erotica, but hopefully that will come back soon. I’m cynical enough to wonder if their stock shares plummeting today, combined with someone noticing a sudden dip in … Read More
Hello, December! And #PeepPimpage #FreebieAlert 12/01/2017
Whew! What a week. I hate the “short” months because it’s a day lost on my deadline. Exhausted, massive fibro flare pain from stress and the weather, and just wishing I’d hit the Powerball.

#amediting #editinghell – Essential oils to the rescue.
I really do use essential oils all the time. In my diffuser, topically, and even internally.

And I cannot live without their … Read More
