SM Johnson ~Dia de los Muertos

It is.... el Dia de los Muertos - the Day of the Dead. And I have a gift for you. Well, sort of. I mean, you'll have to click your cute little mouse over to CreateSpace and walk your happy little fingers through the ordering process AND pay for it yourself - but STILL.

I am just the messenger, really.

And I bring you this message of a great and shining joy, the kind that will leave you curled into a ball, rocking, and possibly tearing at your skin and your hair and wishing you could unsee what you have seen. And I know (soothe and pet) that you'll never be the same, ever again, but there is no help for it, and I will be so proud of you.

Doesn't this sound like a wonderful gift?

Are you ready? Drum roll, please...

SM Johnson ~Erotic Audio Excerpt ~

Presenting .... Season 2 of BDSM Bedtime Stories, brought to you by the BDSM group on Goodreads.

Last year Dominant Sirly Eric read an excerpt of my book Above the Dungeon for Season 1 of BDSM Bedtime Stories, and this year he's reading an except from Out of the Dungeon. Mmmm. His voice is AMAZING, and he does a GREAT job. He brings both Roman and Dare alive, so you've just got to check it out.

SM Johnson ~ Messy Amazon ~

Good morning, folks, and what a beautiful morning it is. Not that I'm going to notice - I worked nights last night, so I'll be cozily tucked into my soft warm bed for most of the day, dreaming the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The Amazon debacle - good lord, this was crazy.

I had my little floor-rolling, fists-flailing tantrum and did a tweet and retweet campaign, some emailing, some bitching, possibly some contacting of the ACLU and the NY Times... and something in there worked, because Amazon sent me an email that they again reviewed Out of the Dungeon and determined it does not violate their sparse and arbitrary content guidelines.

SM Johnson ~ The Difference ~

Good morning, Darlings. It's National Mental Health Awareness week. Or something kind of sort of close to that. Which I didn't actually know, but Nicole Knepper from the blog Moms Who Drink And Swear told me.

So in honor of that, I'm going to link to Nicole's blog because she is funnier than shit, and then I'm going to talk about the difference between being crazy and being a writer.

SM Johnson ~ Life is messy ~

Good morning, darlings, and welcome to coffee! I'm changing things up just the tiniest bit since my foray into paranormal romance is on hiatus. There are so many things I want to write about - and my themes seem to be getting more and more Dark. The vampires are just one small element, and while I plan to write one more book in the Dungeon series - this one featuring Dare and Thomas - I'm not sure if there will be more after. I felt the common thread between vampires and dungeon masters was adorably "things that go naughty in the night" - the commonality in my more recent projects seems to be "life is messy."
