I am queen of this little corner of my world…

by Cassandra Carr

Up until recently, I was writing either on the couch or a recliner in our living room. You can imagine how good the ergonomics were with either of those locations, but when my daughter was a little younger it was impossible to do anything else. Then she turned three in December 2011 and I decided enough was enough. It was time for a desk.

So I shopped and I shopped and I shopped, since I wanted a nice-looking desk because it would be in the corner of the living room, but I didn’t want to have to pawn the aforementioned first-born to afford one. After that, I shopped some more. Finally, a few weeks ago my hubby and I were actually able to go to an office-supply store by ourselves-do we know how to party or what?- and we found the perfect desk! Not too expensive, pretty good-looking, and big enough to hold all my stuff without looking like a war zone.

So now, here I sit, the queen of my queendom of one, unless you count my toddler as a subject, and personally, I don’t. She’d overthrow me in a heartbeat. And I write. And I listen to Imagination Movers in the background, hoping it won’t creep into my writing.

Hero: “We’re out of condoms!”

Heroine: “It’s an idea emergency!”

*sirens flash, buzzer sounds repeatedly, hero and heroine run around with no particular order to their movements*

If you’ve never seen Imagination Movers, that little skit isn’t nearly as funny. They’ve got some stuff on YouTube, here’s a link. Have at it, just don’t say I didn’t warn you. After all, this stuff is geared toward toddlers, people…

Imagination Movers

And now, an excerpt from Impact, available now from Ellora’s Cave

Professional bull rider Conner Raub hides a secret from the world. He’s a Dom. When he meets a submissive on tour who pulls at his Dom tendencies, he fights to deny his true self, believing his colleagues will condemn his lifestyle.
Jessica Talbot is new to the BDSM scene and the bull riding tour, but after seeing Conner come to the aid of a submissive being mistreated in a club, she sets out to have him for her own. After their first night together she asks him to train her to submit and he refuses, afraid to mix business with pleasure. But Jessica isn’t deterred. She’ll do whatever it takes to make him realize he can have it all—a career, true love, and the BDSM lifestyle he craves.

EXCERPT: This is the second chapter because the first is kind of a prologue.

    Conner packed up the last of his stuff and threw it into the duffel bag. The first event of the new season was starting in a few days and he was flying out to New York City later tonight. He was looking forward to meeting up with his best friend Brady Parrish. His mind flashed back to the previous evening at Decadence. He wished he could tell Brady about the BDSM lifestyle he wanted. Brady was a great guy and wouldn’t judge him, so maybe he would some day, but how do you bring something like that up?
    Hey dude, pass me the rosin. By the way, I like to tie women up, spank their asses red, and then have them…
(Woah! This is too steamy for this blog, which is generally PG13. But you can read the entire excerpt Under Loch and Key, which is where I post fiction excerpts. Under Loch & Key is rated “adults only”, so if you’re not at least 18, you can’t click!)
