If you are coming here from Lurv Spanking, then welcome to Byron Cane Fiction. If you’re not, welcome as well, because everyone should be reading. As the title states, there is a free offer available for a limited time. As some of you know, I’ve been wrestling with my ‘Grace’ novel, my completed novel, for many years and have only within the past week, began editing again after a lapse of four years. Detailed post here if you want more information.
I’m also sure that many of you search on-line booksellers and know that free samples are available for many titles before purchasing. Usually this is about 10% of the actual word count. My novel will be around 100,000 words.
So, as you have guessed, I am offering the first five chapters, 24 pages and 9,185 words for free, yes free, for anyone who wants to receive an email that will have: Free Grace Sample, in the subject line and be sent from Bryoncanefiction@gmail.com.
Now, you can use the ‘Contact’ page at the top of the blog, or leave a comment on this post and I will use the email address you commented with, or send an email directly to Byroncanefiction@gmail.com by clicking this link which will open in your email provider.
I do want to post this warning that this excerpt is rated 18+ and filled with spanking and BDSM and bad words. It is also dark and contains about every single trigger you can imagine. If that’s not what you want to read, then don’t request a copy, please. And of course, follow common sense as to where and in front of whom you read this.
So what is this novel all about?
Well, it has spanking, BDSM, D/s, D/D, polyamory, Christianity, LGBTQIA, abuse, violence, and takes an unflinching look at the way corruption intersects with juvenile justice. There is lots more than that: the narrative device is two timelines eight years apart that come together with plots that go spinning off in all directions, affluenza leading to wasted lives and people finding love in all the wrong places. It is not an easy read, and it will piss a lot of people off.
But at the heart, it’s a romance about the devastation of abuse inflicted by adults upon children and the power of faith and redemption to bring healing to broken survivors.
And I will say this, I like writing erotica, not so much for the thrill or titillation of the forbidden, but because I really don’t like hypocrisy.
My goal with this offer is not to solicit – because that’s not legal except in Nevada outside of Las Vegas – editing, but rather for any and all commentary on the story. I’ve edited this many times, but stuff slips through and, I’ve switched from 1st person to 3rd person so many times that there may be errors. But feedback is very important to me. If you hate it, that’s fine, my writing is not to everyone’s taste. So please consider providing specific feedback if you’re able.
Once the novel is completely rewritten/edited, I’ll be calling for a small group of beta readers before I move forward with publishing, as well as advice for agents and publishers.
In the future, I’m going to be posting updates and offers on this blog instead of Lurv Spanking, so if you aren’t a follower yet, please do follow Bryon Cane.
