    Hello out there,

    I wrote to you on Fetlife some time ago and have wanted to stop by here to leave a note since then and well, today’s that day and “YAY” for that!

    There are two items on this page that prompted me more than anything else to write to you:

    1) When you posted, “I can’t stop laughing at DamnYouAutoCorrect. I am literally scaring my dog.”

    I laughed so hard and for so long my temples, jaws, and my sides ached. Ached. Ached. And still? I logged on and read again. My first visit to that site lasted over an hour.

    2) Should the day come that we meet my long dead mother will be happy to know her daughter has lived a length that included time to fulfill a wish of an ardent Herr’s fan for whom she could quite possibly been murdered. It would be my pleasure to bring you a bag of Herr’s Ketchup Chips should life and Atlanta allow.

    Until that time, please know that I sat and stared at the following page for more minutes than a grown woman should admit to a stranger or even herself:


    I also read that you admit to being “really jealous of successful” authors. I think I understand the heart of that statement. However, please know there is at least one girlie out here who considers you successful, and while not jealous, is continually inspired by your writing, and by you – the author that made those characters, stories, and everything in them come to life and by doing so, became part of my life.

    Respectfully and with a smile that comes from knowing as soon as I hit this, I’m heading over to DYAC for a fix and fit of laughter.

    His LiLYin

    Hahahahaha! Lily, what a wonderful note. I’m glad I turned someone else onto DYAC. It always makes me laugh till I cry. And I am SOOO familiar with that Herr’s website…unfortunately. 🙂

    Thank you SO MUCH for the kind words about my books. I know I am already a successful author if I’ve moved people enough for them to write me such nice notes.

    Totally off the wall here….but, here goes! Just read “Comfort Object,” Excellent read!!!!! Read it after seeing it recommended on Maryse’s Book Blog. Okay it was was in the what to read after “Shades” section, something that I have to share with someone- your the lucky one. Your writing is more realistic to me in that there is the romance and love/trust, yet the lifestyle and the sacrifices that someone’s willing to make for that bond is brought out. I’ll give you the perfect example….

    I live in Wisconsin and went with a friend shopping in Appleton (Near Green Bay-if you’ve heard of the Packers ;p). Anyhow, this friend’s bringing up how she’s never been in an adult toy store in her entire life, as we’re comming up to one. Wrong thing to tell me!!! So of course I pull in, and convince her to come in! What’s there front and center but a special wall area marked of as the “Shades of Grey” area! They had the 3 books, crops, nipple clamps, ben wah balls,etc.. As we stood inspecting the implements, the sales man meandered through the other people (it was a Saturday-so, it was actually pretty busy, especially since it was right off highway 41-Wisconsin’s main North/South artery) and came up to me an my friend. He wanted to let us know they were hosting a ladies night on October 11, celebrating the “Shades” series. There was going to be refreshments served, hor dervs, and all the items in that area would be 10% off. Me being the snarky 43 year old that I am, couldn’t help but tease this young 20 something guy. So, I looked past his shoulder at the silicon replica’s of porn star parts that neatly lined the wall next to the delicate “Shades” display(by the way did I mention the display had been wall papered in the back in a delicate pink), and said, “Actually, my friend and I here were trying to figure out which orifice that 18 inch dong over there was going into first!” He looked over his shoulder at the ridiculously huge item I was pointing at-it had to be 2.5 to 3 inches around- and replied, “Oh.” Then walked away. My friend just started laughing.

    No, I’m not in the lifestyle. But, I enjoy reading about it. I love reading your writing-your awesome! I think many woman want to be dominated, that’s why “Shades” did become popular…..I also think most of them don’t understand what true D/s relationships are. They think they might be like what Ana found-Good luck with that! But, please be careful….there’s lots of creeps out there!

    Keep on writing, and I’ll keep on reading. I just kindled 2 more of yours this morning!

    • annabeljoseph Posted September 20, 2012 8:04 pm

      Hahaha. I am LMAO at that salesclerk and the “delicate” 50 Shades display. It has certainly been a marketing boon for the sex toy industry!!

      I’m so glad you found my books too. I hope I show up on some of those “What to read next” lists because I think a lot of people are coming off 50 Shades and looking for something a little deeper. Yes, yes, I promise to keep on writing! Thanks for your wonderful note, and for visiting my blog!!

      Please spread the word for me to anyone looking for some hot BDSM romance to read next. 🙂

  • marcia donaldson Posted October 21, 2012 12:52 pm

    i have read a lot of BDSM books but non come even close to your books, my all time fav is mercy i wish i had one of your book per week i am waiting for your new books the day they comes out on amazon i buy . love love your writing.

    • annabeljoseph Posted October 21, 2012 7:14 pm

      Thanks for taking the time to write me, Marcia! I’m glad to hear my books hit your “sweet spot!”

      One book per week sounds a little steep but I promise I will try to keep them coming. 😉

      • marcia donaldson Posted October 24, 2012 8:08 am

        thank you.

  • Selina Posted November 21, 2012 10:45 pm

    I started reading BDSM a few monrhs ago, yes I did read 50 shades of gray, that peaked my interests, so far your books have been an inspiration to me. Going from a Vanilla lifestyle now to Kink lifestyle is very challenging but reading material from books like yours gives novices like myself the push to keep moving forward. Please keep writing this 44 year old sub needs too keep fantasizing about the perfect Dom making everything correct.

    Thanks Selina

    • annabeljoseph Posted November 23, 2012 12:02 pm

      thanks Selina! I’ll definitely keep writing.

      And it’s fun to fantasize about the perfect Dom but I don’t know if such a thing really exists, lol!!
