What is Femdom really about?

I want you to ask yourself a question. What is Femdom really about?


When you hear the word, the image that immediately comes to mind is a woman in leather or a latex suit, some kind of pain-giving implement, a strict expression, heavy makeup, and long, perfectly manicured nails.


And yes, that pretty much describes Becca’s aesthetic in this book… when she plays.


But, as a good author friend of mine says, “That’s just costuming. It’s not real.”


So what is Femdom about?


Author Daisy Jane made a post during her release of the Wrenched Kings about femdom and vulnerability, and it got my gears turning ( ←see what I did there? Gears? That was clever. Praise me.) You can read it here. (https://www.facebook.com/authordaisyjane/posts/pfbid0xyUEB5bT2inGJ4b2DzW4b6p2zc4Wbx1zRLbbSgV8PCF1EB3Q1wHVNX9PTk3MKToHl) I had copious conversations with another author friend about the double-edged hypocrisy of the BDSM lifestyle, and yet another about feminine vs masculine energy, and how their submission is different simply because of their energies. All of this got me thinking about the outward appearance vs the truth, and what dominance really means for each individual person.


When I first brainstormed this book, it was all about a boy who discovers submission and resists it until the end. Then it turned into two people who were both fighting for what they wanted, and letting their weaknesses be known.


But it still felt flat. It felt like an excuse to write femdom sex. And I love writing sex, but you know what’s better? Creating a book that people relate to. Something that makes you cheer and gasp and weep and fight and scream. Building a world that makes you feel something real.


I did a lot of reading and research. I watched videos, listened to podcasts, and asked questions. There was writer's block, tears, and scenes that I loved that I had to cut. But I’m very proud of the end result.


This story is about a Domme who fears power, and a male submissive who fears being out of control. It’s about facing those fears, emotional intimacy, trust, growth, and responsibility we have to ourselves to be honest.


I hope you feel something. And I hope it changes you.

Long books

One reason why my books are so long is I love to explore the why. Okay, you like being tied up and pegged in the peach. But why? Don’t just give me the physical reasons. Give me the mental and emotion
