Just for fun!
I left this A-Z Blog Challenge from 2015 on here because I had such a good time doing it.
If you've got time to kill, read some of the older posts.
Most of the books I write are considered relatively sweet and mild, but I would still say they are meant for those 18+.
Yes, I swiped my mother's copy of Lady Chatterly's Lover when I was 14, but that's beside the point. Now that I have granddaughters, I know I would not want them reading my books until they are older. The one exception is my oldest granddaughter who is 19.
In reality, they watch and read things that are much more graphic than anything I write. I would much rather have then read a book in which a woman gets disciplined by a loving man, than one in which a woman is raped and or murdered, yet movies like that are on shown on prime time TV all the time.
I'll never forget trying to watch, Sleeping with the Enemy. It took me about 6 tries to get through the entire film and in the end I had to watch the last of it without the sound. It totally creeped me out.
At the time, it struck me that many people think a spanking story is in some way not worthy of reading or perverted, yet a story about a man beating and terrorizing a woman is acceptable entertainment. Not that it wasn't a good movie, it was, and I realize that many women go through the horror of an abusive relationship and do not have the power or opportunity to shoot the son of a bitch. I just don't see spanking, domestic discipline or consensual BDSM in terms of abuse.
Now that is my idea of entertainment.
