Spanking extravaganza



Ooh, look, I'm in a proper pornographic mag! That is to say, 'Let them eat cake', a short story with lashings of cream and cuckoo clocks, is featured in this edition of Forum.

Also in here is a special feature on Black Lace's 15 year anniversary, with Portia Da Costa and many BL authors interviewed (the special edition covers are absolutely gorgeous), and a swinging article by Ashley Lister, the pictures of which I am jealous. Of.

Wait, I am jealous of the pictures that illustrate the article. Yes.

I do think I need to fix my grammar.

Anyway, I love this story. It's kitsch and a little surreal. And hopefully sexy too. I'm really tickled to have a story in Forum. They've called it a 'spanking extravaganza', which is a phrase I like the sound of! I wish it luck as it goes bravely out onto the top shelf.

Meanwhile, I'm editing the novel ... that's why I'm frowning so hard. And blinking. And feeling slightly dazed.

In fact, am I making any sense at all? God. Blog coherence decreases in inverse proportion to the amount of other writing work I'm doing. Sorry.

Hi Nikki!

When does this issue appear in the shops? I need to try and find one...

Congrats on your story!

Love

Portia

Congrats!! I bet you'll have a rollicking good time up there on the top shelf with Portia and Ashley. What you three won't get up to! (Or, if you prefer, To what won't you get. Up?)

Hey PDC,

Thanks!
I'm not 100% sure when this is out - I did have a bit of paper that told me the date but alas, it's in my filing system. Which means it could be anywhere. I think it's about the twentieth of April.

And cheers, Jeremy, I'm enjoying it so far! So much so I've nearly lost ability the to speak!

Ooh, congrats on Forum and editing! I love her leather cuffs. They are snazzy. You know...if one's into that sort of thing.

Happy Hump Day :)
XOXO

Cheers Sommer! xx

Craig Sorensen said...

Well done, Nikki!

BTW, I just bought Circus Excite and am waiting impatiently for Amazon to deliver it!

Nikki Magennis said...

Oh, thank you Craig! I do hope you enjoy it. Oh dear, now I'm going to worry ... !

Craig Sorensen said...

Please, don't worry Nikki!

Truly, I've loved every short story I've read of yours. My only regret is that it's taken this long for me to get around to reading your book!

Shanna Germain said...

Goddamn! That's hot...nicely done!

When you get a chance, can you ask that woman on the cover where she got those sexy red cuffs? I want them...

Super congrats, Nikki! Cuckoo clock porn - wow, that could be a whole new sub-genre.

Hope editing is going well and you are not too nuts!

Nikki Magennis said...

Craig - thanks again, and let me know what you think!

Shanna, you and Sommer are going to have to fight for the cuffs, I think. I do think if I was a naked ladymodel, I'd make sure my cuffs and collar matched though ...

And Kristina, cheers m'dear! (You don't have to be mad to write smut but it helps, etc.)

Nikki Magennis said...

Hello Alana honey! Thank you. Have a lovely weekend. xxx

Ashley Ladd said...

Congrats on having your short story published in Forum. I'll have to check it out.

Nikki Magennis said...

Thanks, Ashley! Did I say this was UK Forum? I think it might be a different one than US Forum ... I think!
