Busy few days! 😀

For a sneak peek of Mistress’s Release, let’s visit Trinity:

When I was three, my mother taught me how to change my baby brother’s diaper. Jacob screamed until his face grew splotchy like a tomato. I clamped my hands over my ears, adding screams to drown out his rage. I’d asked my parents for a doll with curls and long eyelashes, not a tiny monster. Mama squeezed my toddler hands around slippery diaper pins and wads of thick cloth. I wiped, powdered, folded, and fastened until I could do the procedure blindfolded.

For the next ten years, I diapered and bathed six more babies. I crocheted sweaters and booties. When Mama went on bed rest for babies number five and six, I took over the household chores. I never said no. My reward would be a strong, faithful husband who provided for my own houseful of children. My duty, and only way to please my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, was to remain pure, obedient, and faithful. I’d diaper baby bottoms for Jesus, and the Lord would provide.

Except when the Lord tried to provide, I didn’t want the husband. I wanted a wife.

Mistress on Her Knees-Amazon

Thou shalt not covet thy host’s submissive.

When a Domme loves a Domme, strange things can happen. When a Domme loves a Domme who is her former submissive and cheated with her best friend, all of the usual fun with handcuffs turns into something darker.

Graciela struggles to control her attraction to the headstrong, beautiful woman who broke her heart ten years ago. She offers temporary shelter to a fellow human in crisis, nothing more. But when Trinity buckles under Graciela’s righteous anger and begs for forgiveness, Graciela’s resolve wavers. Can she ever trust again? Does Trinity deserve a second chance, or is this yet another manipulation?

B is for Buttons

“Do you, Graciela Fairbanks, pledge to protect, guide, cherish, and chastise your submissive, honoring her submission and devotion?” Jessie, usually so irreverent about this side of me she doesn’t understand, stumbles over the last few words. Something changes in her tone, and she gazes at Trinity who trembles in anticipation.

“I do.” I reach for the small linen envelope Jessie placed in front of the first candle, as I instructed. Accepting the lighter, I set the wick ablaze. The wax warms, and soft vanilla scent rises from the light.

“And what do you give to your submissive as a sign of your love and dominance?” Jessie waits with the red velvet pouch as I take Trinity’s right hand in both of mine.

Opening her hand, I slide the card of pearl buttons and set it in her palm. She gives a tiny gasp, looking upward despite my orders not to. Before she remembers and glances back down at the floor, her tear-filled eyes communicate an entire speech in one glance. You remembered. You promised, no matter how difficult life became, you would button me back up. It was my first gift, the day I asked her to become officially mine.

Breaking script, I duck down to kiss her sweet-scented hair. This girl I have come to love offers me her entire self, and I will never forget the value of her gift.

Mistress on Her Knees: Keeping silent

Welcome to Saturday Spankings and Snippet Sunday!

Mistress on Her Knees is still doing well! Thank you to everyone for your support.

Ten years ago, Trinity Maddox cheated on her partner, Graciela Fairbanks. Worse? Trinity slept with Graciela’s best friend. Graciela kicked her out. For good. Trinity became a professional Domme, just like Graciela, and resolved never to allow anyone into her life again.

Then, the unspeakable happened. Trinity fell for a client, Mira, who also fell for her. Mira’s relationship with her own partner is in shambles, and Trinity is responsible. What can she do?

She calls Graciela for help, but she forgets one thing: Graciela won’t tolerate fools.

Part 1: Whining

Part 2: My fault

Part 3: Injured party

“Yes.” She cracks her agreement like a whip. “When Hana brought Mira to you as a paid client, it was about them. When they invited you to their home as a guest, it was about them. When you played on a vulnerable girl’s emotions and taught her to love you, was it about them?”

“I never—”

“Accepted an invitation to visit them in their home and abused their trust?”
Every excuse rises to my rebellious lips, but I keep silent.

Part 1: Whining

Part 2: My fault

I bite my tongue too late, wishing I could take the words back. Something about her brings out the worst in me and always has.

“Yes, Trinity. You are the injured party here.”

There was a time when her withering sarcasm would have dropped me to my knees, begging forgiveness and a chance to make amends. Today, it makes me angry. “It’s not about me. It’s about Mira, and—”

Great reviews, upcoming release dates, and more!

Just a quick hello as I rush around trying to corral my “creativity” also known as my mess. 🙂 I’m picking up a guest at the airport today, and we have a packed schedule before she leaves tomorrow.

It’s a good thing guests visit, or else my home might never get a good cleaning. 😀

Mistress on Her Knees and Ana Adored have played tag with the top 3, 4, 5, and 6 spots in lesbian erotica. Currently, Mistress is #5 and Ana is #6. So…Mistress is beating Ana. *giggle*

They’re both listed as “hot new releases,” and the reviews…wow! The reviews! Eight 5-star reviews and one 4-star review, and the newest one by Jeanne D stunned me:

Mistress on Her Knees is an intense experience. The writing is tight and masterful–the author has absolute command of her craft and the storytelling is impeccable. It feels almost cliche to compare the author to a Domme, but the analysis fits here. The narrative is masterful and deliberate. Anastasia Vitsky’s story is difficult to read at times. It’s erotic without sex. It’s emotional–painful in places– and yet the reader always feels as though the author is in absolute control. She opens up the story and shares the darkness and the light of the characters with deft strokes. While the story is essentially a Dom/sub love story gone bad and brought back (with a secondary love story within the story), the author manages to tell the story in a way that readers totally unfamiliar with Dom/sub experience, mindset, and emotion will feel as though they understand. You may not agree with Graciela; you may be confused by Trinity’s choices… but you will relate and care.

Short in length, the story could be devoured in a single sitting, but I took my time and came back to it. The visual descriptions are spare yet flawless, told with a well-balanced hand.

The author is gifted and this tight story is an intense treat. Don’t expect “erotica” here–no explicit sex. This is storytelling with emotion, with intellectual depth, and with power dynamics that confound genre labels.

Julie’s review had a wonderful analysis:

Another compelling story from Anastasia Vitsky . Mistress on Her Knees is centered around Graciela and Trinity, two women with a domme and sub, teacher and student history from long before who find themselves needing to reconnect. But Trinity is now a domme and disciplinarian herself, and re-accepting her former role isn’t part of her plan. Graciela’s belief that Trinity *needs* to revisit that role is at the heart of their story. Mistress on Her Knees explores not only the nature of dominance and submission, but the nature of relationships. Is forgiveness possible? To what lengths will you go to help someone heal? And to what lengths will you go to rid yourself of guilt?

As with most of Ana’s characters, Graciela and Trinity have flaws – they are capable of making bad decisions, manipulating situations to their advantage, and acting in their own interests while rationalizing those actions as being for others’ good. And even when they act with the best of intentions, their actions can be questionable and the results can be ambiguous. In other words, they’re human. Ana doesn’t write “Smack – OW!” fiction, where the story and the character’s actions exist merely to move from one scene of discipline to the next. Ana’s stories are fully realized studies of characters and situations, where discipline and punishment occur as a natural result of the choices characters make. Reading this story I found myself thinking about the nature of consent, and whether consent is always truly consensual. And about whether dommes and subs are ultimately defined by their roles and unable to act in any other way. And about where the line is between punishment for someone’s own good, and punishment for personal satisfaction – or even if there is a line at all. You may find yourself thinking about the effects of betrayal, and the suffocating impact of guilt, or the healing power of love.

But Mistress on Her Knees *will* make you think. I highly recommend it.

And this comment by A.F. Odom made me laugh:

…this author has a light touch to sex scenes, even when she includes them. I often find her books full of tease with little release for the reader. Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, —- and then it’s the next day, and the sex happened, but the reader didn’t get any.

Poor frustrated readers. 😀 Did you expect anything less from the Queen of Tease?

There are so many wonderful, thoughtful reviews that I can’t list them all here (or my guest may find my home still in a mess), but thank you to everyone who has read, reviewed, and shared the news.

In other news, Seoul Spankings and Living in Sin will be book baby twins! Both are scheduled for March 25 publication. Phew. This is an insane month. Four book releases in four weeks, plus three writing deadlines. Oh, and I do sleep once in a while (contrary to popular opinion).

I was not planning to hold a party for the next release as I have so many writing deadlines, but if the two books are coming out together…what better than a spicy/sweet party? Living in Sin is non-erotic and safe even for young adult readers. Seoul Spankings is…well, let’s just say my editor’s first response after reading was, “OMG, Ana! This is NSFA!”

Is it wrong that I’m a little proud? 🙂

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Hope your day is terrific.

Happy Monday!

So, this just happened. Number three for Mistress on Her Knees AND number four for Ana Adored in the same week!

*jaw drop*

After a wonderful party yesterday, I woke up today counting my blessings. It was such an amazing day in so many ways.

Sara Daniel’s relationship advice chat was poignant, sweet, and insightful. We debated the merits of Happy Meal hats, too. 🙂 I think many of us came away from that hour (and a half!) reflecting on how well we communicate with our loved ones.

Sadly, Elyse Buchbinder had to cancel due to a family emergency, but she promises to come to the next party. Who knows? Maybe I’ll throw a bash for Living in Sin and Seoul Spankings at the end of the month. As of now, they are tentatively scheduled for the same release date (March 25). Eek! I’m hoping Seoul Spankings can be a different day, but we’ll see. If not, well…we’ll have twice the reason to celebrate!

The birthday spanking roleplay directed by Kate Richards…wow! So many wonderful authors, readers, and friends joined in the fun. It would be hard to pick just one favorite moment, but three of the top ones would be Teresa Wymore’s stunt swat, Amy Leibowitz’s glow-in-the-dark stick, and Jeanne de Vita’s wooden spoon barricade. Thank you to everyone who made it so much fun. I did not, however, thank the “helpful” friends who tattled to Kate.

Teresa Wymore, Anne Ferrer Odom, and Christine put together a fabulous sex toy party. Wow! Stunning. You can get a little peek here on Pinterest if you missed the fun.

Ann Mayburn popped in for a fast-paced discussion on being a Domina and her kink journey. Let’s just say she mixed some NSFA elements with wonderfully down-to-earth good sense. Strong women are sexy. 🙂

MOHK hires(1)

I also received this wonderful gift from London Calling! Yummy! Isn’t it delicious. Though Kate asked, “What should we have Ana do?” It was a day filled with off-the-wall comments. Let’s just say that. 🙂

Thank you to Teresa who put together this trailer for Mistress on Her Knees!

Yum, yum. Oh, it is not true that the end voice is mine. I swear.

Then…well…let’s just not talk about the end. 😀 Yes, there will be a part two but I’m not sure we can talk about it.

I sent out goody bags today. Yay! US residents should receive yours by Thursday, except for Susi and Paula. International residents should allow two weeks. I can’t wait to see whether you like your gifts! ❤

Mistress on Her Knees: Everything’s my fault

It’s been fifteen years since Mistress Graciela took me on as her submissive and ten since I allowed her to touch me, but I still resent and respect the woman who taught me about submission, love, and betrayal.

“Fine. Everything’s my fault, like always. What about Mira?”
“I didn’t say that.”
“Oh, shut up, Graciela. Everything’s been my fault since the day we met.” I bite my tongue too late, wishing I could take the words back. Something about her brings out the worst in me and always has.
