Barbara Huffert again. When I was here in May I told you about my ebooks. Since then, two have become print books. The first, Bound Brits Anthology, was part of Total-E-Bound’s first round of putting things into print. Wow what a thrill that was, to have the anthology that my story, All Roads Lead to Ripon, is included in chosen! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore being an ebook author. Still, and I’m sure other ebook authors will tell you the same thing, there’s just something about holding your very own book in your hand.
Of course, the day I received my copy none of my local friends were around. Nope, not a one. I ended up sitting on my front steps with my twenty-one year old neighbor. Poor kid, I horrified him almost as much as my mother. He knows I write but I don’t think he had any idea what exactly I write about. He took one look at the cover and began to blush. As soon as he asked what it was about I could see he wished he hadn’t. My answer, it’s a collection of stories all with a bondage theme. Mine in particular is psychological bondage. With a bit of spanking. You can imagine the expression on his face. His response, that’s just wrong. After a little more conversation I figured out it’s wrong because he used to hang out in the yard with me when I was grilling. He was eight and always came out to keep me company so I wouldn’t get lonely. I guess writing spanking stories wrecked my image or something. But he did recover enough to ask if I had any bookmarks left that he could give to his friends to prove he lives next door to a real writer.
My second story in print, Beyond Meddling, is part of Total-E-Bound’s anniversary celebration. They’ve taken a bunch of the Lust Bites stories and combined them into three anthologies. Mine is in volume three and is available from the TEB site as of today.
The other really cool thing about being a print author is having my very own Amazon.com page
. The books aren’t available in the US yet but sooner or later they will be and Amazon has me all set up for when they are.
One last thing, as part of Total-E-Bound’s anniversary celebration they are having some contests. I’m participating in one of them. Click here
