Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, Seductive Studs & Sirens, Snippet Sunday, and Saturday Spankings! Each weekend, I showcase eight sentences of a work in progress, not-yet-published book, or a book from my list. Today, I’ll show you a snippet from Daughter of Discipline, the sequel to The Vengeance of Mrs. Claus (currently on sale for only $1.99 at Blushing!).
For those of you who participated in today’s discussion on DD (domestic discipline) and/or who are familiar with my writing, Daughter of Discipline will surprise you: a story of M/F spanking that includes a marital relationship, husband who spanks his wife, and a society in which marriage means submission. (Ah, the precursor to Bastia!)
21-year-old Claire, soon to graduate from college and blushing with her first sort-of boyfriend, struggles to accept the astonishing news of The Vengeance of Mrs. Claus: Mrs. Claus is real, Mrs. Claus spanks naughty boys and girls when they become an adult at age 21, and Claire’s own mother gets spanked by Claire’s father! Worse (in Claire’s eyes), Claire herself will be spanked once she marries.
Minelle, Claire’s loving but technologically challenged mother (Yes, that Minelle! Yes, our very own Minelle who plays the Advent Calendar and
tormentsenjoys teasing yours truly!), struggles with her own conflicts. She loves her husband and trusts him, but his rules and spankings are starting to enrage her!
In this scene, Claire enters Minelle’s bedroom after finding out she (Minelle) was spanked–and still furious about it. Minelle calms herself down for Claire’s sake, and they have a discussion about living a DD life. Minelle and Claire’s mother-daughter relationship is the center of the book.
Oh, and our lovely Bas (and his little dog, Unique!) appear in a cameo scene edited and approved by Bas himself, as well as with input from Mick.
(Punctuation altered to comply with 8-sentence rule)
“Don’t you hate it when Dad…you know?” It was hard to say who was more embarrassed, Claire or Minelle. After several choking coughs, Minelle regained her composure.
“Sometimes, yes,” she said honestly. Like right now, she added to herself.
“Then why do you let him?” Claire tried to keep her voice light. Ever since Minelle had told her that getting married would mean submitting to…that…the whole dating and marrying thing had become a great deal less attractive.
Minelle thought for a moment. “Because I love him?” she asked, as much to herself as to Claire.
Daughter of Discipline will go on sale at Blushing today (Saturday) evening. In the meantime, please enjoy The Vengeance of Mrs. Claus.
Advent Calendar players, please answer one or more of the following questions:
- Have you read The Vengeance of Mrs. Claus?
- Do you believe Mrs. Claus spanks?
- Would you ever let someone spank you? If yes, under what circumstances? How would that person earn your trust?
- Why do you think Minelle wears granny panties? (Find out in the book!)
Please note: this is an *additional* extra-credit post, and the regular Advent Calendar post will go live at 8 AM EST Saturday. Have you missed only one day in your quest for Perfect Attendance? Here’s your chance to make up your missed day! You’re welcome. 🙂
