Welcome To Quest Five
Allison Beaumont is having trouble finding a job after college until one day the wealthy and powerful Joseph Candle offers her a job at his rather unusual corporation, where mistakes can lead to bare bottomed spankings. Adopting the alias of Virginia West, she joins four highly skilled colleagues, racing around the globe in search of mysterious treasures, but wherever she goes, trouble is sure to follow.

Endings & Beginnings

Thank you to everyone who read Quest Five and a special thank you to all those who left comments, whether occasionally or consistently. Now that the final chapter has been posted the question looms as to where to go from here. The story is left with an open end in hopes that I will someday return to the Quest Five universe and continue Allison’s story from her rather odd and precarious end. Before that continuation though, I have a few plans, including a clean up of the original Quest Five story to be offered as a free ebook download whenever it is completed. Don’t hold your breath though because I’m not yet ready to start work on that project. I’ll let you know when I start and keep you updated from there.

Most of you are probably already aware of my new blog, Imagine the Stories. Since January a new short story has been posted each Friday and in some way or other each one has been in part inspired by the accompanying spanking related picture(s). To date I’ve done my best to keep each story unique and entertaining while touching on the wide realm of fantasies related to the wonderful world of adult spanking. If you have not stopped by already, pop in and have a read. I’d love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, or just general praise (because praise is so much nicer than criticism), but I’ll take the lumps from constructive criticism too if that’s what you have to give. Seriously, I appreciate each and every comment so long as it is not spam.

I promised to share updates on the projects I’m currently working on and I had hoped to have completed my current project by now, but it has taken on a larger life than I originally anticipated. Just because I like to talk about what I’m working on (not to mention my cruel, sadistic nature) I’ll whet your appetite with a few details which may or may not change during the course of completing the project.

My working title is The Spanking Days of Summer. I like the title, it reflects the story quite nicely and it is something of a double entendre. The story is centered on a young woman dealing with some major changes in her life; Things like living with her Aunt and Uncle on a ranch, preparing to attend college, making new friends, dating bad boys (well just one really, but he’s bad enough for plurality), oh and for the first time in her young life she has to deal with real boundaries and discipline. It’s a real shame and I mean that in the reddest sense of the word.

Anyway, this is the project I’ve been consumed with lately and it’s being a lot of fun. The main character shows off a lot of those characteristics many of you have mentioned you appreciate in a spankee; intelligence, whit, and strength of character (ie. there might be a victim, but it’s rarely if ever her). All in all, I’m very happy with the progress and I’ll keep plugging away until it’s completed. I’ll keep you updated, but hopefully the next time I post about it, will be to tell you it’s done and ready to be downloaded.

The Spanking Days of Summer is going to be the first story I don’t give away. I know this is going to be disappointing to some, but a lot of work goes into writing these stories. The Spanking Days of Summer is shaping up into a novella length story and I think you’ll find the quality of the story and characters to be well worth the cost. Of course I will continue to produce plenty of free material for everyone to enjoy and hope that the quality of my work will be all the sales pitch my work needs.
