Her Wild Gypsy Excerpt

If you have been following me on twitter, or are on the email list, you will have seen this excerpt already, but I wanted to share it here as I know not everyone is connected with me in these ways.

Squeee, love this book!

“You really want this, don’t you?” He asked.
“Yes.” I said honestly, breathlessly.
“Yes what?” He asked.
“Yes, daddy.” I told him, the words feeling both naughty and exciting. As though I had always been meant to say them, but had held back too much before. Now he had freed me.

Isn’t that just the best feeling ever!? You have this fetish you have always loved or wanted to try, or even just a word that feels too naughty to say, or too naughty to claim, and you do… and it’s such a massive win for you in claiming your desires.

Want more? Put a copy of Her Wild Gypsy in your cart now.

Until next time – happy reading!

Last Chance For Discounted Books!

A few of you have already taken advantage of the books I have for sale over at PayHip – an organization who offers me a higher royalty share which I pass on to you guys as a saving – but for those of you who have not taken advantage yet, you will want to buy up now!

The reason for this is I will be putting up the prices as of tomorrow because some ebook retailers price-match with PayHip – something I wasn’t aware of when I signed up – and that means that due to their reduced royalties, I am losing a significant chunk of change, something I cannot afford to do while supporting myself with my writing.

If you have not got those six books yet, go grab them now!

Otherwise, watch this space, as I have a book release coming very soon. There will be pre-orders and a cover reveal and all those other exciting things coming, if you haven’t already, sign up for the email newsletter and be one of the first to hear about this and other new releases!

Until next time – happy reading!

Yes girls can cum in their sleep, HuffPost!

I had to laugh today when a reader sent me a link to an article that HuffPost wrote about people cumming in their sleep without stimulation (“wet dreams”).

I laughed because I had already written about it, only mine was in the first person. Funnily enough too, when I wrote this, I was writing about my own experience – cumming in my sleep without physical stimulation – and in the research phase where I was looking for anyone who had written about women who did this, I came up with nothing.

For anyone who read my medium blog post (don’t forget to clap if you liked it!) and who wants to read more about the science of wet dreams, head on over to HuffPost to hear what they had to say. Yes, they found people to answer the questions I had, with science. Very grateful for that, but also quietly wondering what inspired them to investigate in the first place…

Ahead of the curve, as always!

My Irish Research Trip – Weeee!

I am a little excited – okay, a lot excited – about my pending trip to Ireland. The trip is a hybrid of a research trip and a holiday. It’s going to be amazing!

And I’m leaving tomorrow (squeeeeee! Can’t believe my luck!)

As y’all know, I have written two books featuring hawt Irish book boyfriends, I am not-so-secretly hoping to get some inspiration for a third and maybe a fourth book, should the country be fruitful.

Galway Baby Girl and Saint Paddy’s Daddy were both inspired by the men of the emerald isle. 

If it’s not a fruitful trip, well, I got to visit one of the best countries in the world and have a wonderful holiday filled with experiences I won’t forget in a hurry. Oh, and I explored different places that will feature in future books for sure.

So here is my letting y’all know I shall be on a hiatus from emails and social for a month. Don’t worry though, because when I am back I will respond to every one!

Try not to miss me too much!

 

Until next time – happy reading!

The Immortal Battle Series Is Now Available EVERYWHERE!!!

As many readers already know, in the interest of reaching as many of you as I can and keeping things available for everyone, I have been taking many books out of Kindle Unlimited – where I have to sign an ebook exclusivity agreement with Amazon – and distributing them more widely.

Last month, I took Stolen Mate out of Kindle Unlimited and released it on Apple Books, Kobo, Smashwords, B&N & others, and now today I have done the same for The New Alpha. This means that the two books in the Immortal Battle Series are available everywhere, how good is that!?

I am slowly distributing more of my books more widely. If you’re not a fan of Amazon – or can’t use it for whatever reason – you can check out my other books and either buy them directly from me or buy them from one of your favorite retailers by clicking here.

For those who are worried about losing their favorite Kindle Unlimited reads, you should hurry up and read more of my back catalog, as if things are still popular to Amazon readers, I won’t take them off Amazon just yet. I made a list of books still available in Kindle Unlimited here for your convenience.

Until next time – Happy Reading!

The Sugar Daddy Agency: A Re-Covering!

I have been dropping hints about this re-covering and name-shortening of an old book. The book that was formerly known at The Parisian Billionaires Sugar Daddy Agency is now The Sugar Daddy Agency, and has a much prettier cover!

Sadiechatterton(2)Isn’t it gorgeous!? 

I feel like the red really makes the cover pop, it looks similar to another cover which I loved – funnily enough a book also about sexy billionaire – as I said yesterday, if y’all like the new cover and name, I might be tempted to re-cover some other old books.

For anyone curious, if you have not seen the original cover – and you should have because you should have already read this gem, but maybe you have not been so lucky yet – here are both covers side-by-side:

A serious improvement, right!?

Let me know what you guys think! Also, if you have not been lucky enough to read the book yet, you should pop a copy in your cart now!

Until next time – have a wonderful weekend and happy reading!

Check Out My New Look Website!

I loved all the red in the old website design, however, links on the pages didn’t look as good. When you’re blogging about say, how there’s a bunch of free in KU books available for readers, you don’t really want to have your readers squinting at the webpage, unsure exactly where the links are.

There are also pictures at the top of a couple of the pages. I picked them out special because I wanted people to more easily be able to identify which page they were looking at. I know how busy everyone is and if you’re catching up on the news here while also checking out my books in a different tab, I wanted it to be easier than ever!

I have a re-covering coming up tomorrow. The new cover – and books newer, shorter title – is beautiful, I hope you all love it! If y’all like it, I might just get a few more books covers made for some of the older books. My tastes have changed in big ways since I had a lot of the covers made, so we’ll see!

Until next time – happy reading!

S. L. Finlay Books Still FREE In Kindle Unlimited

I have been moving more of my catalog over to Smashwords, Kobo, B&N, and Apple. This was after I had some feedback from readers that they wanted to read my work, but it wasn’t available on their favorite stores.

When you enter your books in kindle unlimited, you have to agree to not publish them elsewhere, so finding the balance between what is available to more people and what is available to the people in KU is difficult.

A number of my books are still available to read for free to those who have Kindle Unlimited subscriptions, however, and I wanted to let readers who had kindle unlimited subscriptions know that they can still read some of my best work.

Last months release Daddy, Boyfriend & Me: Her First Romantic Menage is available on KU, and please leave a review y’all, there’s only six there, although they are an average of four-stars at least.

What is the longest of my titles The Parisian Billionaire Sugar Daddy Agency: A Billionaire Age Play & Spanking Romance is still available on KU, however, I am thinking of trimming down the title and maybe putting a new cover on it. What do y’all think?

The sweetest alpha ever (and US military too, yum!) is still available in KU: Daddy’s Baby: A Military BDSM Secret Baby Romance.

Cowboy’s Baby: An Age Play And Spanking Romance is my most popular title to date, and still available in KU.

My underground kink scene (and very steamy) Bought by a Billionaire Daddy: When a daddy dom bids at the slave auction is still available in KU as well.

Last but not least, and the only title in the list that’s not a BDSM/daddy dom story is Frankie’s Irish Eyes: When This Badass Australian Witch Falls In Love. Really enjoyed writing it, although as most of my readers are keen on kink, it didn’t fly off the shelves like I had hoped.

I hope this list makes it easier for y’all to find my kindle unlimited titles. Also, if you have the time to leave reviews, I would very much appreciate it!

Until next time – Happy Reading!

 

Deeper Than Books: Connecting With Your Favorite Authors

Recently, I had someone who is not on my email newsletter list get in touch with me. They said they didn’t want to sign up for emails but wanted the bonus chapter I was offering as an incentive to sign up for the email newsletter.

When I got the email, I wrote back promptly telling the sender that they could enter their email in the form to receive the incentive, then after they received the bonus chapter, they could click the unsubscribe link. I told them I wouldn’t be offended if they did that, as I know not everyone wants me in their inbox (yes, this is shocking news, please try not to fall off your chairs people!)

We had an email to-and-fro where the sender told me that if this was the case – and it’s honestly not just the case with me, it’s the case with most email newsletters, you can leave at any time – then she didn’t understand why more people didn’t leave because (her words) newsletters don’t offer you anything.

I thanked her for her thoughts and told her I respectfully disagreed.

Email newsletters are awesome. My readers will get heads up about new releases, will get the first offer of a freebie or a giveaway and will hear directly for me in a way that is far more personal than blogging or social.

During the release of Daddy, Boyfriend & Me this month, I sent a personal email to my newsletter recipients detailing a conversation with a friend that had related to writing age play. I also gave newsletter recipients a heads up that due to some sort of mistake, the print version of Daddy, Boyfriend & Me was available right away whereas the pre-order of the ebook would come out on the 21st. It was a bit of a wink-wink, nudge-nudge if you want the book early here’s how to get it. But I only gave my newsletter subscribers that heads up. I didn’t write it on the blog or social. I wanted the people who trust me with their emails and who let me take up precious space in their inbox month after month to have a special sneak peek if that’s what they wanted too.

In the past, the same has been true for when I was looking for people to join my ARC team to receive free books in exchange for honest reviews, when I was hosting a giveaway or when I would be offering a story or book for free (something that almost never happens, but when it does the time is so limited that sending emails means my most loyal readers will be able to nab their copies!).

It can be annoying to get 1000 author emails from authors you hardly know anything about, which is why I try to share little stories and ask my subscribers questions. I want to engage with my readers because it is you who I write for. It is you who supports me so I can keep doing what I love. You support me with your money, but more importantly with your words. I love the tweets and emails I receive more than anything. They keep me going as I have to push through rejection or writers’ block.

This is why I say – and have started to include in the welcome email with the short story or bonus chapter – if you don’t want to hear from me a couple times a month, you don’t have to. You can unsubscribe and follow me wherever you buy ebooks. Ebook retailers can send you a note when something new is out by me if that’s all you want.

So sign up, get your bonus chapter. If you like the emails you receive, stick around. If not, as I say, I won’t be offended if it’s not for you. There are other ways to keep tabs on new releases if that’s all you want for now.

Until next time – happy reading!
