The Happy Endings Novel

It’s almost time for a New year! I’ve got lots of stories on the go that you will hopefully see over the coming year, but I’m already behind schedule—so how about we re-visit one of my favorite books of the last year…

Tommy and Sukie and Dio’s weird little sex-triangle are now available in a one-click purchase if you haven’t already read it—and if you want the paperback, that’s ready now, too!

Available On Amazon


And, as an aside, I was wondering if anyone noticed the new cover of Going A Little Too Far?…

  1. I did see that cover a while back, and I very much enjoy it. I think it conveys the lighter tone of the story as well.

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you, KT, for doing the “Happy Endings” paperback! Amazon doesn’t seem to have it “live” just yet, but it shall be purchased milliseconds after they do.

  3. Congratulations on getting this put together, it just looks so proper having the complete story novelized. The hardest working author in hotwife erotica. Or at least the author that has the most to say … either way!

    1. I should get the coveted Long-winded Award…

    2. Haha, that is exactly how I wanted you to read the second award category meant for you. No one can ever take that away from you, KT! LOL

  4. Happy New Year! TBTH is right. It’s the proper presentation for the story. I hope it does fantastically for you and don’t worry, I’m not going to beg for a book 5, yet! At times, Daria and I talk about that epilogue. Lady, you nailed it and us, too.

    1. I will say, this is a distinction I like to bring up a lot – even though she turns most of her series into novels because they are all part of the same story, I like that she writes series and releases them in parts. It makes me enjoy each segment so much more than if I got the exact same whole story in one fell swoop. It’s a fact about myself that KT’s release style has revealed to me.

      As it relates to the Happy Ending story, I am convinced I would not have enjoyed the first three parts of the story as much as I did if I didn’t have to wait for part four to be there, in the hypothetical scenario that KT released the full story instead.

  5. The cover… who does she remind me of? Someone… Edie Brickell? Maybe a little.

  6. I remember reading Happy Endings awhile ago and waiting eagerly for the ending but A Little Too Far? Maybe my New Year treat!

  7. Sucks when you run behind schedule. Hope things are coming along with Finding Keely so we’ll soon get to catch up.

    1. The holidays have been rough on my writing schedule, but I’ll be back at it soon!

  8. I like the new layout! It’s easier to navigate and it’s more apparent that there are new posts.

    I reiterate my curiosity about the central conflict of Finding Keely – especially given that it’s now listed at 99k words.

    1. Ah, don’t listen to me I probably just have preconceived notions. I took a glance back at the post about Finding Keely from a year ago and it’s probably just a different kind of story than what I would normally expect.

      1. What are your preconceived notions? 🙂

      2. Hmmmm. Well, I understand you write other stories outside of this pen name, and this pen name itself is associated with a specific genre, about men and women in a relationship where the woman feels lust for another man outside the relationship.

        Now it’s been a long time since I read the Maggie books (when they were released), but If I understand the general timeline of Finding Keely correctly (based on your post from a year back), this is Keely and Max coming together long after Keely and Cole had a fling. At the same time we know years later that Max is perfectly fine with Keely and Cole hooking up and that it doesn’t particularly bother Max. And if my memory serves the implication was that Keely mostly does it for Max’s benefit. So my initial curiosity is where is the tension? I guess this is a typical concern for prequels/interquels and I really should know by now to not underestimating your writing ability.

        But I think all the above is based on my preconceived notions of what a “KT Morrison” book should be. There are softer stories (like Apres Ski), and perhaps I’m being narrow-minded.

      3. Interquel? New Word Alert. Thank you, I jotted that one down.

        This is a long, luxurious story, and, yes, tension is limited. We all know where it’s going. Or do we? Maybe there’s more…

        Or maybe not.

        My question was once a young guy has opened the lid on his kink and then shunted to a new relationship will he broach his favorite flavor or not. We know he does. And there’s tension there. Max has his thing and finds new love but how do we get to the scenes we saw in Tahiti? Mostly though this is a romance between two people, three people, four people…

        Probably don’t have to look out for falling anvils in this one.

  9. Regarding the new layout, look at me only bringing something up when I have a criticism. I do like how much easier it is view things. Is there a way to get the status bar back for mobile?

      1. That’s fair, lol.

      2. I have almost no website skills. It’s amazing this place hasn’t caught fire or something. The fact that I have a progress bar is amazing to me. Now it’s not working on mobile or something? Ho boy. I don’t even know what to do. I just use the templates they give me!

    1. Go to the very bottom of the home page and press the “…” button and you should see the status bar

      1. Thanks, Glaucon.

      2. Thank you!

  10. The new layout is good. One glaring thing that’s missing though: Editing posts. I don’t know if the software being used can support it, but if it can, perhaps allowing editing for a short time after posting would be possible? I mean, it would be nice for the times I misspell David.

    That guy.

  11. KT, do you think the typical tone of your stories has changed over time?

    1. Glaucon – I’m not KT (in case you didn’t know), and I hope she’ll answer because I like when she provides us glimpses of her process, but I’d like to answer.

      I think the only thing that has changed for KT is the types of directions she wants to go with her writing, and it’s hard to know if she grew to make that change, or if it was in the works, she just hadn’t had the opportunity yet. I feel like KT circa 2016 and 2017 laid a foundation that we might say is the definition of a KT story, but only because that’s all we had from her. Now that she has another year of work under her belt we’ve had to expand the definition of what a KT story is trying to accomplish, merely because she literally has more books out. We have the conclusion of the Maggie story which is probably the closest thing she’s written to actual polyamory, that is until she wrote Happy Endings, which also featured the strongest main male character she’s ever written. She wrote Pool Party and continued Reza which are probably the cuckiest of pure-male fantasy exploration she’s ever done, and then turned around and wrote probably her most Romance driven novel she ever wrote with Separate Schools.

      Now she’s even trying her hand at surrogacy stories and Sci-Fi.

      So I think the tone has changed, but it must never have been a typical tone, since when I think about it, I see differences in all of her stories. I mean to the extent that stories about women having sex with other men who are not their husbands/boyfriends and having them watch it and enjoy it in begrudingly, can be different.

      I think her range has grown, and her story telling continues to diversify. I do think there is a KT style that is uniquely her, and I wish I was better at understanding the inner workings of literature to explain to you what that is, but I think that style is about the only thing that is ‘typical’ about KT’s work. As far as I’ve been able to tell, she likes slight of hand/red herrings/mystery, character progression, personal growth, and making sex just a piece of the story (which is about a wife/girlfriend having sex/relationships with someone else, so there’s a lot of it just by default of her story choice, lol).

      That was fun, thanks for asking that Glaucon.

    2. I don’t know—but I think 2B2H is right that I always want to try something else. Like hotwife meets The Hills, or how about Grapes of Wrath but with a cuckold, or whatever gets the pen moving across paper. I think somewhere along the way I’ve lost the tippy-top thrill of cuckold taboo and thusly am more interested in romance in a hotwife relationship. In the last few years I’ve had a friend and other acquaintances relate that their boyfriends were into this and they liked it. None of them did anything more than dressing up and going out, calling home to say they met someone interesting. They got it, thought it was hot. I think my understanding of it is changing and therefore the books will change, too. I see way more love in these stories than I even used to. People hate Taylor but I swear to God Taylor loves Harrison. I absolutely love complicated relationships with people who struggle with societal norms and how it relates to their sexuality, and I’m way into matriarchy these days and how it fits into the whole shebang. I try really hard at this writing thing and somewhere along the way my understanding of things expand and adapt, callus over. I know that moving forward I would like to write heavier. Back to the Cherry Blossoms kind of feel. Writing light is alright but the last few months I haven’t been gloomy (Natalie and Inconceivable didn’t make me gloomy) and I like gloomy. Finding Keely will be more of a menage romance, and Separate Schools will be hotwife/polyamory, but I have another LHW in me.

      1. “People hate Taylor ….”

        I don’t.

        “… I’m way into matriarchy these days …”

        Ooooh, promising.

      2. Interesting. I can feel a lot of this in your stories, and I hope you continue to find things to write about that interest you.

      3. I don’t hate Taylor, I do think she’s manipulative as all get out, though. She was dishonest until she couldn’t be. Yeah, she left signs that would hit an adult like sock in the jewels, but he’s a kid. My wife likes Taylor and thinks she’s just being more mature. Maybe that’s why we like your writing, KT.

        You mentioned you have another LHW in you. May I remind you that because of your epilog in Happy Endings, it’s there? 🙂 I don’t give up, do I? (And no, I haven’t finished Maggie, yet.)

        Seriously, wherever you go with your writing, we’ll be there.

        I really wish we would have read your catalog in release order. It would have been enlightening to see your growth without seeing the current KT and then have that view obscure the previous KT.

        A recommendation to you. If you have time or inclination, and if OHW gets back online (NXDOMAIN errors), read some stuff by Don Jetman. He’s brilliant. Better yet, he’s real. I think you’ll enjoy his work.

        Have a great night KT, and everyone! It’s 73 where we are and we ain’t goin’ anywhere!

        Dave

      4. KT – If you’re taking fictitious requests, might I suggest Hotwifing meets Bird Box? It’s perfect … “No honey, keep your blindfold on right now, because you’ll, uh, die …” *frantically puts her clothes on*.

        That’s technically a cheating story, don’t want people thinking I don’t know the difference, lol.

        I feel the need to say that I’ve experienced an interesting growth (let’s call it that) as a Hotwife/Cuckold story consumer reading the leader of the pack. I am actually growing to like more and more of the sweet elements of the stories. Starting to latch onto more of the pleasant elements of stories, for their own sake, and not necessarily as part of a “heavy emotional experience guaranteed or your money back* expectation. I want the gloom, I think it’s well established, and still actively seek those stories that aren’t afraid to run the full gamut of emotion when I look for books, but I don’t know, I appreciate the positive feels more. I honestly think I have KT to thank for that. Too many Romance stories build suspense in cookie cutter ways that are so superficial or treading well paved paths that you can see right through it, it’s been tried! Now imagine you let your future wife fuck her best guy friend who has just the amount of connection to her, is better looking, might know her better, and is a better lay than you, all because you get off on it, and she’s inexperienced? Who’s trying that shit out in the Romance world?! Fuck your conflict, Romance Author A, now THAT’s a challenge, you weakling. The good feels are stronger when there’s a legitimately taxing conflict in the story that feels novel and genuine. It might just be personal taste, of course. Still, KT writes that way and it is appealing. Sort of like I’ve started to trust that KT’s concept of Romance writing might have a stronger utility to it, or a greater value. *CHERRY BLOSSOMS POTENTIAL SPOILER* When Geoff learned his lesson, it was as a result of some intense trials. And though it was hard to fathom Nia not to get those dark itches again, for reasons that have been written a year and a half (?) ago lol, it felt good that love between Geoff and Nia could continue. And I wanted it, almost in spite of myself (so what if I thought Rocco would be her soul mate at one point, what of it? lol) because of everything else that happened between them *CHERRY BLOSSOMS POTENTIAL SPOILER DONE*. So much has been written into the conflict in Cole, Max, and Maggie’s lives, so many emotional underpinnings, I am actually looking forward to this story in a Romance sense.

        Who knows, I might just be glad another story is coming out, period. I may or may not have felt the same exact way if she said she was making ‘Finding Keely’ a Horror story. We’ll never know. I just really hope that all didn’t read like I was the Grinch learning about the true meaning of Christmas.

        @David – It’s 32 Degrees where I am, so I’m coming over.

      5. I just want to clarify one thing about my opinion about how I felt about the ending of Cherry Blossoms and careful for spoilers if you want to read it/don’t want it ruined even in the vague way I’m about to talk about it. It isn’t because of all the BAD things that happened between Geoff and Nia that I was glad for how it ended, but because of all the things, period, that happened between Geoff and Nia. That is the point I was trying to make. It’s the array of experiences had between Geoff and Nia that were so captivating while Cherry Blossoms was being completed that made where it ended satisfying. I guess it’s similar to that feeling you get when you know two people well in the real world had a fight and are getting along again. It has a satisfaction to which caring about the success of a real relationship can probably compare. I don’t know if that makes any sense, or I made it trite by making the ‘realness’ comparison again, but I certainly didn’t want to be accused of claiming that boy deserves girl again. Just kidding that wasn’t my motivation, but I did think about that when I wanted to clarify my point.

        I bring up that distinction (the good feels because of real feels distinction) because I normally don’t care for happy endings, they bore me. Or more accurately, I just forget about them, because they are everywhere in our culture. That and my existence is boring enough that I can handle a little bit of negativity to help me feel something different for a change. This got sad all of a sudden, lol. I’m just saying, give me a Black Mirror Bandersnatch ending where everyone dies once in a while so the ‘guy and girl fall in love’ stories mean more! The fact that I can put my weird preference because I felt so strongly about the ending of Cherry Blossoms is my ‘tip of the cap’ to KT.

        She went and obfuscated how to interpret that ending as a positive feeling, but hey, she wants us to have nice things but respect them while they last.

      6. *sigh* This sentence is missing the word ‘aside’ from above.

        The fact that I can put my weird preference aside because I felt so strongly about the ending of Cherry Blossoms is my ‘tip of the cap’ to KT.

      7. Ah, I wish you hadn’t lost that thrill, though. I absolutely cannot find someone who wrote those kinds of stories at your level of detail and care.

        Supremely selfish of me, I know.

      8. I didn’t actually lose any thrill, just less tempted by the low-hanging fruit!

      9. @Glaucon – I’ve taken to reliving KT’s intense work from the past for a while now, but its losing its effect. Afterall, I already know what’s happened to the characters and who falls/stays in love with who. I want to get back to the intensity felt from not knowing what was going to happen when turning the page on a Maggie story.

        Separate Schools had a lot of that intensity though, and that wasnt that long ago. If she’s lost her mojo, she hasn’t shown it too much. Which is good, should it never return.

        I really fucking hope it does though, even if we are possibly being selfish.

      10. I don’t think KT has lost any mojo per se (maybe moreso pursuing a softer tone), I just think that as noted above, KT’s moving more towards a different subgenre. There’s a big difference between the Taken books, Measured Next to Her Ex, Size Curious Brat, and the more romantic directions that KT’s expressing an interest in now.

        We’re all probably after different things in these books.

      11. https://media.giphy.com/media/mD44sZCdqtR3AbChoB/giphy.gif

        This isn’t about mojo, ha ha.

        When I began this three years ago, the taboo of cuckoldry and hotwife was huge to me. Now I see love in it and romance. Like it can be a healthy part of anyone’s relationship, even if just for a time. There is something emboldening about it and how it relates to the matriarchy and a celebration of enlightened sex for women who have been … (gah, I have to stop there because it’s my characters that should be saying this!) Like I said, as more people I respect have related to me personal experiences the more good I find in it. At its core there can be good and not bad—but that ‘thrill’ can’t help being there (and without it there is no point! it’s just cheating).

        By losing that tippy-top thrill as I said I meant (but I see I didn’t convey and that’s my fault) a straightforward hey male character’s wife is excited by some strange, oh nos! cue the bom-chicka-wow-wow pr0n music isn’t the draw it used to be. As a writer I need more to stir the spirits and get a story happening. I am drawn to writing deeper and darker (hey-oh!) like I did with Cherry Blossoms because the truth in the character’s story is more exciting than the act. Like, why can’t a cuckold book be a romance? Why it gotta be erotica? Sometimes it’s obviously erotica and that’s cool too. But I think a loving married couple exploring their sexuality can be a book about being a human being and not be a dirty book.

        Why does any of this matter? I spend a ton of time writing these books and some of them actually mean something to me. I can foresee a world where credit card companies make censoring restrictions that make purchasing such books something they won’t allow. If I write books that matter without the sex scenes I make those arguments harder for the big bad corporations of this world. I’m practically a freedom fighter (eye-roll). I probably shouldn’t even bother you guys with my paranoid delusions but they are things that shape my thoughts—ultimately my nonsensery about love and romance in the cuckold world is a behind-the-scenes matter because my books won’t really change for you. Do you like LHWs? I’ll do more. Separate Schools? Yeah, I’m doing that. Taken series? Look for something like that next week. Reza? It’s hot. Mojo? I wrote the first book of the next LHW series in 7 days and these unfortunate characters have set me on fire. S’called Six Weeks In Winter and I hope and pray you all might be as excited by it as I am.

      12. @Glaucon – To be clear, I’m not inferring that you said she lost anything or I even am, but she did say shes becoming a little numb to the tippy top thrill. Even with her saying that, I haven’t felt a weaker punch from the stories, was my point. Of course, when shes trying that is. Lately, as she said and you point out, she hasn’t been trying.

        I do think that she is missing her biggest appeal to me the further she goes away from the Cherry Blossoms and Maggies of the world. Those touching and crushing tales. I look forward to Separate Schools part 2 and Finding Keely (even if it is a touching story), because I think both will hit hard again.

        I see LHW being the most glib, possibly Cay Pro at second place among her heaviest stories. It’s the building and dismantling of relationships that hits the hardest for me. It takes volumes for that to happen.

        That’s my opinion on her story collection.

      13. *Conspiracy Keanu Meme* – Whoa … to KT’s post.

        (How do you attach memes to posts?)

        I love it when the possibility of new stories are dangled out in front of us, it’s almost as fun as actually reading them. Almost, lol. I’m glad you’re enjoying exploring these relationships for more of the deeper meaning to people, and possible healthy parts that can exist out of the wife sharing lifestyle, and less about pure erotic thrills. I am glad you’ve found a value that makes you want to respect everyone involved, from the characters themselves, to the readers who might feel strongly about the lifestyle and to the people that you know personally with whom you have a lot of admiration. As I said, the way you’ve articulated the healthy elements of those types of relationships has resonated with me better than any other author who writes in this genre. It’s almost entirely my own lack of willingness to appreciate the value behind those authors’ stories that is the reason why it never got through, but somehow you were able to get me to actually feel something. I think I know why …

        Going on a limb here – It (the higher value of healthy polyamory) is not everything though, and it’s a segment of the reason why people seek relationships outside of their existing ones. As you well know and articulate in your own stories. Jess engaged in the cuckolding because she realized she got a thrill out of being cruel, temporarily, and she had some conjured feelings of her diminishing (in her eyes) youth. She, fortunately for herself and Pete, realized it and was forced to reassess. I could talk about other characters, but some people don’t acknowledge or even want some transcendent meaning to getting some strange. Sometimes it’s just fucking awesome, and your stories are great because even those characters getting what they want for whatever reason they want it, doesn’t just end after the event happens. The story becomes an exploration of their motivations, sometimes as things spiral out of control.

        For me (and here’s the ‘why’ I was alluding to above) I guess I’m realizing that I enjoy the fact that you explore all manner of reasons why people cheat/agree to be shared, not just the one’s that feel nice when you reflect on them. Sometimes they’re just facts that don’t care who they might offend. The reason why I enjoy that you have written some wife sharing success stories, is because it’s part of the real world as much as a girl realizing, even if by accident, that maybe her man isn’t the man she ultimately wants to be with. Both stories existing gives more value to the other, when you look at your library.

        And as they compare to other authors writing similar stories, nothing even come close.

      14. Thank you—I do like to explore the different but realistic possible outcomes based on the characters I make. If I think cuckold would work we go there, hotwife … etc. It all depends on where I would like to take the story and what I think the characters would do—and if they were to be thrust into something they were uncomfortable with, how they might handle it. Believability is motivating even when my scenarios are unbelievable. Jess moving Tyler into the house…? I mean, what? But I tried so hard to make it not seem impossible!

      15. Thank you for the thoughtful reply, KT.

        Also: next week!? Always wonderful to be ambushed by a new story.

      16. *Looks upon the dead horse* Nah, I’m not done.

        I’m not sure any of what I’ve said has resonated with anyone or if I’m just talking to myself about these books, either way I’m fine with it, but I still cannot let even a shred of what I’ve rambled about be misinterpreted. I think the cusp of what KT was stating is that she has characters who are motivated by love, and she is respecting that and that feeling has deepened in her evaluation of her own work. My reply was not to disagree that love is the only factor in her stories, but that she is not limiting it to just the main male and female characters in every case. Or that a purely romantic love is the only love displayed. In that instance, I don’t think it can be disputed that the love of friendship can be motivator too, as we’ve seen in Separate Schools (Kelsey to Harrison and Taylor) and Maggie (The Cole, Maggie, and Max triangle). I think in that sense her stories very much differ from that of other authors who choose to explore the depths of the love between the MC and FC, with no deviation. And when many of those writers also choose to make love between those characters a constant, there’s really no suspense to people who hold emotions as a centrally important driver to the books.

        “… And it all worked out in the end.” The End *yawn*

        By allowing herself to cast a larger net with what love can mean to different people and to whom their god, the author, is allowing them to love, KT’s able to create characters who’s behavior is much more varied and interesting. By making the stories about the first moment that the decision of gf/wife sharing is made, it can create so many paths of possibilities based on the motivations that each of her characters have. Motivated either through love they know (Sukie), love they think they know (Taylor), love that they wish for (Jess), or love they never knew existed (Maggie).

        We’ll see if that shuts me up on this topic until another story is out …

      17. Thanks for indulging my interpretation, KT – And since we cannot apparently start reading your new work I’d like to throw out a couple one liners about your stories.

        Sometimes I wish you were the cruel heartless author that some of your critics say you are. I mean, I can’t tell you how often I have read a story and thought your characters were taking it easy on one another, only to have review after review come in calling you a heartless monster … And I’m over like, “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice.”

        Also, one of your amazing contributions to this genre is vicarious joy. Is it so bad to feel happy for Cole who won fair and square? Lick your wounds as the reader is meant to because you’re of course meant to look at the world through Max’s eyes, but come away stronger in the end by feeling good about Cole and Maggie’s love. I think we all concluded that there were bumps in their future, but they would have been there too if Max and Maggie ended up together. What makes Max so special? Because your reading his thoughts throughout the story? That’s an artist’s choice, change perspectives and I am willing to believe people take Cole’s side. People need to recognize their biases for what they are.

  12. TBTH,

    Ha! 🙂 I wish I could bring everyone here. It’s nice today. 🙂 Lots better than the weather report for back home.

    OHW is still down. Maybe it’s gone? C’est la vie, well not that it was life. Reality is far stranger.

    That guy

  13. Question for KT. I’ll admit that no one in my orbit knows that I read erotica, let alone KT stories. I’ve been curious based on your response to Glaucon’s question, do you talk to friends/family about what you write? Do they know your pen name so they’ve read your stories?

    I can see both ways. On the one hand I would be afraid I’d have a lot of explaining to do if anyone ever found I am reading these stories. On the other hand, particular as an author, I would be dying to share something that I worked so hard on. Besides, its not like you’re writing anything too gross to lose anyone (with a decent open mind). It would also be nice to have a support network in your non-digital world, too!

    1. No, no one I know has read any of my books, even ones with no romantic or sexual content. I’m a private person and I like it that way; I enjoy the anonymity—it brings freedom. Very few people I know are even aware I do this at all, and even when they do I never tell any of my books.

      I do like sharing my work with others but I prefer they be people interested in the book (you guys!), not my granny or any of her knitting friends. Your feedback is what matters.

      And as far as people I know revealing past stories of bf behavior it was unprovoked on my part and incidental; but my ears were lit up!

    2. Ears lit up – I would think so! Imagine your luck, haha.

      “KT, why do you keep asking me about this?”
      “I’m asking for a friend, that’s all.”

      1. I didn’t prompt, divulge anything, nor ask for more details, merely nodded and struggled through a straight face.

  14. KT,

    I know we’ve mentioned this to you before, but your LHW series were absolutely heart wrenching. The hardest one for me (That Guy) to read was the Pete and Jess series. I guess seeing the events unfold as they did hurt. Having a hotwife is a balancing act like no other. In that story, the balance shifted so radically that it was like watching a huge accident unfold in slow motion. In reality, holding back communication, failing to talk and more importantly failing to listen are the things that should be required in any marriage. I learned the hard way the last time but not before I lied to people and myself. I thank heavens my wife knows me enough to see through the facade and is mature enough to know that saying, “No, ” doesn’t mean resentment. I didn’t know that just before Christmas 2017. That’s where a lot of stories go–resentment, holding back, fear.

    Of course, not having conflict in a story is boring. Your conflicts, for the most part are so well written and ring true enough to make a reader happy when they’re settled with a kiss on the driveway or a makeshift dinner in a remote cabin on a lake and tucking in a true love. Suddenly, the events that led to those moments, while important, matter less. What matters at that instant is the moment. In that moment lies the hope of love renewed.

    Yes, KT, write what you feel. Write from your heart because it will never lead you astray.

    Thank you KT,

    That Guy

    1. Thank you for this, it means a lot (and I read that sentence the right way even if you flubbed it!), but that’s how I believe, too, with these stories. So much of it is the point of the knife but there’s the whole blade to consider. The excitement lays at the tip, the now, but the whole is what’s important. As time passes, reflection allows you to conceive individual events as a whole—what matters with Geoff and Nia and Pete and Jess is the past and not the badness of a period. Sometimes you need space and time to realize nothing was done to purposely hurt you, and the one you believe victimized you was enduring their own experience. It’s not always surmountable, but the love that preceded needs to be weighed and valued. It worked for Geoff and Nia particularly.

  15. Boy, I blew that one!

    “In reality, holding back communication, failing to talk and more importantly failing to listen are the things that should be required in any marriage.”

    I meant to write:

    In reality, NOT holding back, NOT failing to talk, and more importantly, NOT failing to listen are the….

    See? Now you know. I can’t spell, I can’t keep a thought together for ten seconds… ADHD? I dunno… probably not. Probaby just nutty. That’s why I’m…

    1. Ha ha—I read it properly for some reason!

      …and thank you for the HE novel review, it was looking a little naked!

      1. Here’s the story, KT. We got very drunk yesterday. VERY drunk. It was in the high 70’s and we had our favorite tequila so…we did shots, didn’t eat much, and didn’t drink much other liquids. Today, we’re suffering. Seriously, if anyone here is into tequila, you have to try “Tequila Tapacio Excelencia”. It’s a very fruity anejo that is so smooth with just a hint of burn on the backside, about two seconds after you swallow. Too good to waste and too good not to. I’ll stay offline next time we’re drinking.

        You’re welcome for the review. It’s fun remembering all that went on in that series. We’ll read it again while we’re down here. I’m actually surprised I didn’t ruin that review given my state.

        You know one of the things I respect and admire about your writing is your attention to detail. Things like timelines, dates, etc., you keep them together, they flow naturally. I read parts of a favorite story from another author the other day and discovered a character went from 35 to 39 in the span of months in the book’s timeline. That, to me, is just sloppy. Oh well.

        KT Morrison, purveyor of quality erotica… what a tag, eh? It’s true.

        One of these days, I’ll post my real first name (I’ve been spelling it long enough), but until then…

      2. It’s a real party in the DnD house!—I like it. It happens to all of us; there’ve been replies on this website where I later vowed not to log on when I get in after a night out. But as later review showed, and as in your case, what was written was actually pretty good!

        Detail: thank you! it’s important to me. I remember a changing wedding date in the Cherry Blossoms series that I was thankful no one called me on. It caused me great anxiety!

  16. KT,
    Love where you are going generally,

    Since you are edging into “matriarchy” does this mean you might revive the lovely Carol? We need her backstory, the exile of sonny-boy to HKG, the solidarity of Maggie and mom, and Keely maneuvering max’s firm into accepting a takeover bid from Martin – all lubricated with really dirty stuff.

    For HE, I agree with Glaucon (I think) who noted that it would be really easy to slide the ending into something much darker, given Tommy’s willingness to sit in the second chair.

    1. Donkatsu’s got a thing for Carol! Matriarchy as a whole, not one single badass matriarch, ha ha. But yes, if I wrote that good femdom stuff I would do a straight-up ‘Don’t fuck with Carol Becker’ series where she straightens out the male elite behind closed doors using restraints and gags and a few tricks she learned in… gosh, Donkatsu’s much better at this. Anyway, through boardroom deception and vaginal peristalsis she rules the seedy corporate underworld from northern Europe to Asian ports and the eastern seaboard—and the men love it and beg for more! (That’s actually kind of hot…)

      1. KT,
        Well put. In order to truly understand Carol’s back story (back door story???) we may need quite a bit of detail about her apprenticeship in Wanchai in the 1980s. We should also understand something about the girls she worked with there in order to appreciate more fully the strength of the network they created and what they are willing to do to maintain their grasp of the organs of power and wealth.

  17. KT,

    Yeah, it was a party! Not as wild as it was in this very house two years ago when we were still doing the hotwife thing, but it was fun. If you like tequila, ya gotta try that stuff I mentioned. We have to order it when we’re home. I don’t know how available it is in Canada. I know we can’t get it in a Canadian casino we visit at times.

    When we read a book and get into it, details stick. Unfortunately, with that one series of books, even with errors galore, the story was so good and hit (for me) so close to home that those errors didn’t matter at the time, but they do now. There is only one reviewer (out of 40) who mentioned errors. If I had to rewrite the review we posted on the story, it wouldn’t be five-stars. I’d like to be one that person’s beta readers because the guy is fantastic but prone to errors. We are on C. C. Morian’s ARC team, now and while it’s not required, we did point out some things. It’s fun doing things like that and helping in some small way. (If that’s a bad thing to mention, please accept my apology, in advance.)

    I don’t know your writing process, if you storyboard, take notes, plot, or if you just top/down it. Whatever you do, it works! Oh, I’m going to finish the last Maggie book this weekend. I need to be up to speed when you release your next. At least here, without a basement, my stomping around won’t resonate throughout the house!

    Oh, it’s 75 and partly cloudy for those who are interested. It’s not all paradise, though: There’s a toilet running and I’m not waiting for the owner to fix it. 🙂

    That guy, again.

    1. That C.C. Morian story looks pretty good, definitely seems to fit in the ‘Reverse Harem’ camp, which I know KT is curious about.

      1. It’s good. Different from the hotwife/husband/cuckold dynamic yet all aspects are there. We made no content suggestions. We caught some word use. That’s it. It was fun to read a pre-release book and then have input. We read it once for fun then again for comment. We read the final release, as well. It was quite gratifying to know our input was valued.

        I hope KT is into the reverse harem camp, as well. I’m thinking what you mean by that is a wife has a number of men she can call upon when desired? If that’s what you mean, we did that for almost three years. It’s much safer. Plus, we got to know the men quite well and established levels of trust that would not have happened otherwise.

        Dave

      2. Sorry I shouldn’t have used the word camp. ‘Reverse Harem’ is a genre type. The series of stories that C.C. Morian is putting out is exactly that mold I think.

        One woman, multiple men.

      3. No worries, bro. The story is kind of like that, but it’s not. In real life, what happens in the story would be very difficult to accomplish. Then again, it’s fiction, and well done. It’s creative and we’ve not read something like it before — not that we’re experts.

        I gotta get off the computer. Pats are cruising. Bummed that the ‘boy’s lost yesterday. Iggles better lose.

    2. Did you finish Maggie?

      It’s no problem talking about other books here, especially good ones. I only discourage talking shit about other books or authors. Positive things are great!

  18. Here’s the problem with thinking, pausing and writing:

    “I’d like to be one that person’s beta readers” should be “I’d like to be one of that person’s beta readers…” And no, I’m not drinking, this is natural.

    Davd (ha!)

  19. Y’all think this might make a good story?

    I was listening to it today and thought of KT. Now, here’s something interesting: On Apple Music, there is an alternative version of Joy that isn’t Joy at all–it’s a Beatles song mashup. Kind of made me think of the “lost weekend” with John Lennon and Harry partying all the time. My dad told me about that then I read about it.

    That led me to this:

    …don’t need a gun to blow your mind…

    So, there you go…

    Daria’s shopping. Toilet’s fixed. Big storm hitting home today. Music!
