Normally on the winter solstice I make a list of those people who have brought light into my light...and I may do that, but the list isn't going up today. I've been super busy, kind of depressed, and unmotivated in that regard.
But I do have other exciting news! Ellis and William (From "Mark of the Familiar") are returning for a holiday adventure in "Gift of the Familiar." The short story is part of Storm Moon Press's holiday anthology, Milk & Cookies & Handcuffs. You can find it at all the standard stores, and at Storm Moon Press's website. Below is more information :) Be sure to check it out!
"Gift of the Familiar"
Ah, the holidays. Gifts and songs. Tinsel and lights. Whips and chains? That's right. This holiday anthology is all about BDSM, filled with characters who know that sometimes it's Nice to be Naughty. This collection of five stories includes gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans*, and straight couples (and moresomes) that share a common desire for the kinkier side of sex: sensual bondage, sexual domination, and genuine, loving submission. And what better time to explore this dynamic of giving and receiving than the holidays? 'Tis the season, after all!
Shapeshifting Ellis learns from his new master William about the traditions and true meaning of First Day, stories kept from him by his spiteful former master. The day of celebration becomes even sweeter when Ellis opens his presents and receives the Gift of the Familiar -- and then has William try it out on him!
