Love Spanks 2014 is finally here! You’ve tasted us, and now you get to sample free stories from top F/F authors. Please visit Governing Ana for the prize list, sign-up sheet, and free books. You can win from a prize pool valued at over $1,000, including a Kindle Fire or Nook HD!
Many authors will also offer a contest on their individual blogs. Your comment on their blogs automatically enters you in both the main contest and the individual contests!
What’s the catch? Absolutely nothing! We love writing for you and want to thank you for your readership. Perhaps someone might get a spanking or two, but that’s a reward rather than a catch, right?
How do you play?
Visit each blog between Friday, February 7 and Sunday, February 9 to read the posted stories and excerpts.
Leave a comment answering the story question on each blog. You will receive one entry per blog for the grand prize drawing. You will also be automatically entered in that author’s individual contest, if she has one.
If you have visited all of the blogs, visit Ana’s blog to sign up for FIVE bonus entries to the grand prize.
Deadline is midnight EST (UTC -5) on February 9!!
If you successfully completed a previous challenge (Spank or Treat 2013, Spankee Doodle 2013, Love Spanks 2013, or Spank or Treat 2012), you may add “VIP” to your comments. You will earn THREE bonus entries toward the grand prize. (Yes, we will be doing this again. Yes, if you successfully complete the Love Spanks 2014 challenge you can become a VIP for our next activity!)
If you are a F/F author or thinking of becoming one, please add “FF” to your comments. That way, your name will be entered in the special F/F author prize drawings.

And now for my story! I had planned to preview a scene from the next book in the Mira and Hana series (including Desire in Any Language, Mira’s Miracle, and a not-yet-named third book), but yesterday’s flash fiction on Siobhan Muir’s Thursday Threads changed my mind. I’m breaking with tradition and presenting a scene from Seoul Searching, my newest work in progress. It’s an experiment of mixed formats, and the story contains free verse as well as traditional prose narrative. Indigo, a 23-year-old recent college graduate, receives a one-way ticket to what she thinks will be a job interview…in Seoul, South Korea.
[excerpt has been removed in preparation for Seoul Spankings, the full-length version of this snippet!]
Please use one or more of the following discussion prompts:
- What do you think will happen next?
- Have you ever experienced a situation similar to Indigo’s? In what way?
- What parts of the story did you like and/or dislike?
- If you were Indigo, what would you do?
