#WIPITUP Wednesday – The Ties That Bind #BDSM

wipitupwednesdayHello and welcome to WIPITUP Wednesday! I’m in a little bit of a sulk today, as I’ve just found out that book covers with aspects of bondage on them risk being sent straight to the Amazon jungle (or dungeon – whichever you prefer) and so I’ll need to do a cover rethink. I’m stomping my feet a little but I’ll come back with something half decent. I promise!!!  Right, now for your snippet…

The Ties That Bind

Next on stage was a hooded man covered in the same black latex getup as the woman and Mark narrowed his eyes. He swaggered on stage with such confidence and arrogance that Mark knew almost instantly who he was. A scream began building in his chest. Immediately trying to shoot up off his chair, although he was firmly pinned down again before he even managed to get to his feet, Mark glared at the hooded figure who stared him down. He had no idea how he knew it was Levison, it could have been the swagger, the general build or the way he just stared at Mark before he began playing, but his anxiety level had just hit the roof. Breathe, he told himself. It could be worse. What the fuck was worse than Kyle Levison loose with electric current on his girl? Go back to breathing, he cautioned himself. A couple of breaths went in and out, and though they were painful, he tried to distract himself. OK, how could it be worse? He could be having open-heart surgery or something, he supposed. Jesus. He could feel his chest tightening and his airflow becoming restricted. Levison was a wild card. There was no telling what that freak show of a man might get up to. Watching the proceedings with wide eyes, he saw Levison run the pinwheel down Jenny’s back. She didn’t move a muscle. Thank God. So, as he suspected, it wasn’t painful yet. They were going to work them up, get them excited and then shock the living daylights out of them. If Redcliff thought he was going to negotiate in this way, he was much mistaken.

  1. I do not like the sounds of this Levison guy. He sounds like a sadist. Your cover looks beautiful too! 😉

  2. Mark, I hope you kick this guys ass royally when you get free.
    As for A-hole-azon dissing on your cover. Grrrr Just GRRRR. I am getting so freaking fed-up with their discriminatory BS. Do you know how many covers out there have handcuffs on them?
    Sometimes I think they pick names out of a hat and just pick on certain people.
    I can’t leave reviews anymore for ANY of the books I buy and you can’t have your cover! ~Stomps off grumbling and rumbling~
    I’ll be buying your book no matter what cover you chose, but probably not from A-hole-azon!

    • Argh! No reviews? I know quite a few people’s review accounts got pulled lately for no good reason 🙁 That sucks. On the plus side, I can still leave reviews and will have one up for Claiming Crystal shortly. As soon as this books trots off my editing shelf, I’m having a couple of weeks of READING TIME! Hurrah 🙂

  3. Yeah, I knew that about Amazon’s dungeon, and it’s not a fun place for naughty authors to be sent. I wish someone would put Kyle’s lights out for good, but with Redcliff on his side, it’s not going to be easy. As for covers, I think you’re okay with the lady in the black leotard for the cover. She’s not being held to the door in any way, and she’s decently dressed. The guy in cuffs could get you in trouble with a BDSM novel, but not a detective mystery, so go figure.

    • I KNOW! Have a horror story with an axe buried in someone’s skull and that’s fine… but erotica… well, that’s a whole other kettle of fish. Drives me CRAZY.But still, I guess it makes for an entertaining life. 🙂

  4. Ahh, yes … I’ve done the Amazon stomp and sulk a few times recently. It’s becoming quite the rage I hear! Don’t let them get you down … get even, Christina! You know you’re smarter than they are … and all your covers are sexy and gorgeous! Intriguing snippet – I do love a sinister, hooded character!
