This time every year, I take a short break from full-on spanking posts to write about the Dr Who Convention Gallifrey One. Last year this was somewhat more relevant, because I was dressed in schoolgirl uniform. This year I have no such excuse, but I don’t care. You get spanking- and kink-related stuff all the other days of the year! Besides, I am happy to think that I have a high number of fans who are also Dr Who fans — this obviously means I am doing something right!
I’ll get me in my costume from this year up tomorrow. Until then, I’m going to take a moment for another sort of geekery.
I was delighted beyond words (for at least a few moments, before words obviously returned to me, in no way negating my delight!) to see my current search engine results:
For those who aren’t sure what I’m actually happy about, it’s that my site has been ranked as real and important enough to have various pages from within the site listed on the Google page, making a nice big, professional listing! (And the fact that my site takes up the top four slots doesn’t hurt either, but that’s easier to make happen.)
Now, this is in part due my efforts in doing good “search engine optimization” (otherwise known as “SEO”), but mostly, it’s the way Google is doing their algorithms at the moment, and unless I put in lots of effort (something to which I sadly do not have the time to devote), I will probably loose this lovely listing. (Especially because this is, well, an adult site! Google is reasonably fair, mostly, but still, they do prefer non-adult sites!) Thus my screen-cap, to celebrate and commemorate this moment that only a geek can really be inspired to do a happy dance about. (Yes, I have done my happy dance. I even “squeed” in my lost-for-words moment!)
And while I had the search engine up, I found a couple links that also made me happy!
I found a review for Bottoms Up that focusses fabulously on my story in the anthology:
As good as it is kinky, Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories will propel you to pick up a paddle and share in both pleasure and pain, or perhaps to simply turn the other cheek. In “The Hardest Part,” Alison Tyler perfectly captures a sub in thrall to a man who knows the power of anticipation. A “Sorority Sister” bends over to please her big sister during rush season in Dominique Dunbar’s naughty tale. Zille Defeu’s “Reenactment” shows how some girls like it rough (and repeatedly). For those who have an endless capacity to bare their ass in preparation for a sound smacking–or deliver the deliciously ecstatic pain to a lover–this torrid tour de force is essential reading.
What’s more, it’s a little naughty as you’ll see as Both Irelynn and Stephen look round a house for sale, shown by an unsuspecting Ms Zille Defeu (estate agent extraordinaire), only for them to put her nose out of joint and romp around the house with a riding crop and slipper as they christen the place – Spanking Couple Pervert Alert!
Yay! I’m an “estate agent extraordinaire!” Of course, the couple in question have never gotten back to me about the property, so I have to assume they just used me to get into the house and get up to their filthy perversions — whilst subjecting my poor innocent self to them!
Okay, more geekiness tomorrow, plus pictures!
Are you going to Shadow Lane’s 30th anniversary party? Because I am! It’s just three weeks now, and I am so excited about it! I was a bit nervous for last year’s party, but this year I know so many more people so this time around all I feel is bouncily anticipatory.
Have you done your shopping? I’m pretty much done with mine, but that’s just ’cause I’m so eager. You still have time to get some shopping done online and have it shipped to you in good time. (You could even actually go to the shops, I s’pose, but that’s soooo last century! [grin] )
The fun part is the kind of shopping you get to do for Shadow Lane. For instance, you might be needing to get some unique toys to impress potential spankees (or have potential spankers use on you!)
Victorian Wooden Hairbrush
Jemico Two-Sided Razor Strop Paddle
Bloodline Wooden Paddle – 14″
Singapore Stinger Cane
A bit of bondage, perhaps? Possibly some rumpy-pumpy?
Natural Hemp Rope – Assorted Sizes
And don’t forget your EMT Safety Shears just in case you need to get your bondage bunny out quick!
Liquid Silicone Lubricant
This is a great lube which is long-lasting and safe for sensitive skin.
Need to brush up on your technique? Or, would you like to bring a copy of the book my story is published in for me to sign for you?
What kind of schoolgirl do you like? Traditional … or slutty?
Traditional Pleated Plaid Skirt (Wide selection of colours & sizes)
Pleated Plaid MICRO MINI skirt (In Choice of Colors)
Finally, looking to get kinkier? Why not try a “Wartenberg wheel,” which fascinates submissives and masochists, but can be adjusted by simple pressure to be either teasing or intense. And it fits in your pocket! Great conversation starter! Or is your playmate making too much noise in your hotel room? My favourite kind of gag (and the most effective I’ve found at actual noise reduction) is the “cock gag,” which might sound a bit off-putting, but actually means that it has a gag which is a good size and shape for the mouth (ahem) and which has a strip of leather in the front which is discrete and good sound-proofing!
Hope to see you there!
I had a picture of me from a reading I did at Good Vibrations promoting Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories, but I didn’t really have any reason to post it (it being rather in the past by this point in time), so it was just sitting around on my computer, and I kept thinking, “I need a reason to post this!” every time I ran across them.
Well, Ms Cassandra has just given me not only a good reason, but a lovely compliment as well. I quote from her blog:
I walked over to the Barnes & Noble to look up two particular erotic short story anthologies. I didn’t find those anthologies, but saw Rachel Kramer Bussell’s spanking collection, Bottoms Up.
I know a woman whose story was published in that anthology. I THOUGHT I’d read it; it turns out that I hadn’t. Her name is Zille Defeu, she’s a blogger and she was the organizer of the recent San Francisco Corporal Punishment party. At the Barnes & Noble I flipped to her story. Big mistake — it was terrific. I’m thinking, shit, there’s no way I’d ever get published again if THIS is my competition.
What a lovely compliment from Sandy — it was very kind of her to post that!
And now that I’ve used my excuse for this post, I can finally put up the picture of me from the reading!
Don’t I look all calm and collected and stuff? I was terrified! I can do public speaking, but that doesn’t mean I enjoy it! Rachel has video footage of at least some of it, I think, and I probably sound reasonably sanguine about the whole thing … but inside I was quaking in my boots. But I’ve sternly told myself that if I am going to work at being a published author, I’m going to have to do readings — it’s part of the job description! And the only way to get less nervous about the whole thing is for it to become something I’ve done so much it’s a walk in the park — boring, even! (It’s rather hard to be nervous and bored at the same time, I find!)
I have to run and fold laundry now, but I’ve got so much to catch you all up with (tons of pictures!) and now that the party is over and my life is less in-complete-chaos, I want to get back to proper blogging!
Well, that’s what it looks like, doesn’t it?!
When did Sesame Street become Bourbon Street? Cookie Monster finally has found something he may love more than cookies: Tyra Banks bum. At a recent taping of the “Tyra Banks Show,” the wily blue puppet’s bulging eyes seemed to get even bigger when he fondled Tyra’s rear end. This occurred moments after the “innocent” Elmo tried to bite Tyra on the neck, perhaps in an attempt to give a hickey as a show of adoration?
I think this image totally calls for a caption contest!
Leave your caption in the comments. The winner gets a free copy of Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories, signed by me!
To start you off, my caption would be: “S is for Spanking, that’s good enough for me!”
The fabulous Rachel Kramer Bussel has just set announced the publication of
Bottoms Up: Spanking Good Stories … and it just happens to have a story by yours truly (“Reenactment” by Zille Defeu) within its kinky pages! And it even gets a bit of a mention in her words about the book:
Introduction: Getting Spanked Again (and Again)
This being my fourth book on the subject, by now it should be clear that I love spanking: giving, receiving, fantasizing about, and watching it.
So what’s different about this collection? For one thing, there are more male authors represented, a trend I fully support. For another, the tales are more imaginative; yes, there are first-timers and dedicated spankophiles, but there are also swingers and Renaissance Fair attendees living out long-held fantasies…
Yes, I wrote a spanking story set at a Society for Creative Anachronism event. I never said I wasn’t a geek — you all had fair warning!
