My most recent release is actually part of a boxset. Probably, if you follow anyone else but myself, you know about it already. I blog so seldom I figure that nobody pays attention anymore to the blog at all, BUT to anyone out there that still visits and has their ear to the door, don’t miss this!
MY contribution is an alien BDSM menage story, BUT the boxset has some amazing stuff that trumps mine a million times over. I’m talking melt-your-shoes-off hot.
The other awesome authors who let me join were: Sue Lyndon Renee Rose Emily Tilton Annabel Joseph Cari Silverwood Sierra Cartwright Cara Bristol Natasha Knight Katherine Deane Ashe Barker Alta Hensley Trent Evans and Kallista Dane. Thank you everyone!
But Korey, what’s this “Available Only For a Limited Time” stuff?
I mean this really won’t last! These are 14 novellas in one book! It WILL be taken off the shelves and will be probably sold separately, if at all. This is your only chance. Did I mention these are NOVELLAS, not short stories, so you’re going to really get a hell of a bang out of your buck here!
At long last, the Otherworldly Discipline Series has an ending. It had been re-released and re-edited with “Her Master’s Claim” and now finishes with “Her Master’s Hand”. Missing Moriarty, Charlotte, Ashcroft, and Alice? Now you can finially get reaquainted with your old book-buddies as well as collect some more! I hope everyone likes and and I really appreciate you all for bearing with that cliff hanger for the last three years! You guys are all amazing for waiting. Please enjoy!
For two decades, Maili has lived as the adopted daughter of the powerful demigod who saved her life and healed her broken body, but at last the time for her to wed has come. Yet the very thought of marrying the cruel warlord to whom her guardian has pledged her hand fills her heart with terror. She flees from her home in desperation, but her bid for freedom is foiled by an encounter with a decidedly grumpy yet undeniably enthralling wizard.
Twenty years have passed since that fateful day at the Hatchet Cliffs—years that have taken a far greater toll on Ashcroft than all the centuries before—and the once proud wizard has been reduced to hunting dangerous beasts to sell their magical venom like a wandering merchant. Thing go from bad to worse when he inadvertently captures a beautiful, feisty young witch who happens to be on the run from someone with whom even an immortal of Ashcroft’s power would rather not tangle.
Though he is determined to return her to her adoptive father and then take his leave of them both, something about Maili captivates Ashcroft, threatening to smash through the barriers he has carefully erected to reach the place in his heart that only one other woman has ever touched. But aside from the fact that so much as kissing Maili would incur the wrath of the most powerful being in this region of the world, can he bear to risk his heart being torn to pieces again?
It’s finally happened! Otherworldly Discipline had been taken down a few months ago by the old publisher as I now have the rights, so we gave Book One a facelift! SNP edited the living hell out of it, made me clean up a bunch of stuff, but it’s still the same old story, and now we’re ready for book two! This will be coming out in a few short weeks, once sales from Her Masters Claim peter down a bit. It’s ready to go!
Her Master’s Hand starts twenty years after the cliff-hanger of Book One. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean much. They’re immortal, so nobody’s aged yet except for Moriarty’s small brood of kids, which make an appearance. It turns into an identity story, where hopefully our little witch finally comes to respect and value what she is, and what she has, especially after spending her years under the guardianship of a extremely strict demigod.

Title: The Emerald Virgin
Series: Gem Apocalypse Book One
Author: Ravyn Rayne
Publisher: Blushing Books
Published: June 19th, 2015
Genre: Dystopian Erotica
Emerald – a girl with green eyes and a rarity after the horrific genocide that slaughtered millions.
After the war, King Gideon rose in power. A lust-filled and greedy king that believed in the power of slavery.
At eighteen, women were required to come before King Gideon and his four sons, to offer themselves as a courtesan. The princes took only those they found most attractive and alluring. The rest were returned to their homes with a brand on their wrist proving they had been through the process and rejected. Ignoring the ritual was punishable by death.
Aria Stone had been kept hidden from the princes and the ceremony, because she was an Emerald. At twenty-three, the royal guards storm her home, murder her mother, and drag her to court. She must face the four princes.
A dystopian erotic adventure.
“You are a handful. I should have known that’s why Henry walked right on by without so much as a second glance. For a brother that likes gems, he must have known the trouble one would cause.”
Aria sneered at James. “Tell me you don’t believe it.” Emeralds, people with green eyes, are known to be power and money hungry. Does James think that about her? It’s not true. No part of the belief system created to destroy the world in genocide was true. How could James think of her like that? She may not be easy or pleasant at times, but she wasn’t what the enemy said.
James shifted in his seat. “Of course not, but you are trouble. I can see it in you, the rebellious streak. My father will beat it out of you.”
“So what? I’m supposed to pretend it doesn’t bother me that he ordered the execution of my mother and dragged me from my home, drugged me, stripped me naked, and stolemy freedom? No part of what you and your father are doing is okay.”
James grimaced. “I am sorry about your mother. I can’t change our world, but I can protect you here.”
The Gem Apocalypse Series has quite a bit to do with eye color, what color eyes do you have?
Mine are green. I guess you could say authors always find ways to pull elements of themselves or real life into their stories.
Speaking of real life elements, do you use any true stories in your fiction?
Fiction is that for a reason. My life wouldn’t make a great book (at least not a romance novel). With that being said, Dating Wars (Federal Agent Chronicles Book 2) does delve a little into some real dating horror stories that I’ve experienced. A few are true, some are fictitious. I’ll let you be the judge.
Now, I know this is a dystopian novel, and they’re hot right now. I’m in love with a few series and can’t get enough! What was the first dystopian novel you read and fell in love with?
In college I read The Handmaid’s Tale for a Sociology class. I loved the novel and quite honestly it was probably the first book I ever read for school that I went back to read other works by that author. At the time I read it, I thought it more science fiction (and it is). I had no idea there was a category called Dystopian fiction.
Will we get to see more of the other brothers, especially those that have a little less book time?
I would love to do that! The plan is to do a spin-off series featuring Aaron and maybe some time with Henry too, along with more of the courtesans.
Hey, everybody! A wonderful friend of mine, and she also puts together a small ezine called “Muse Mag“; give it a look as well! As for now, I’ll treat ya’ll with an excerpt and intro to her latest release! Thanks for visiting, Jinny!
She gathers with her bridesmaids and watches as each one begins to walk down that long white aisle. Scarlet can barely see him until Evie, the last bridesmaid and her maid of honor, begins walking down the aisle. He looks so handsome and happy in his white tuxedo. His blonde hair perfectly in place, his eyes looking on with anticipation and his white pearly teeth show through the biggest smile she has ever seen him wear.
As she steps up to the double doors of the church leading into the main room her heart begins to race. Her family to the left, Jason’s family to the right, white roses everywhere, white as well as red rose petals line the floor of the aisle leading up to him where he stands under the white altar she is supposed to be walking to. The longer she stares the louder her beating heart becomes until it’s pounding in her ears. Her fingers begin to tighten around her bouquet of roses and lilies as sweat soaks her palms. Suddenly it feels as though someone is sitting on her chest. It becomes harder and harder for her to breathe. As Scarlet looks around the room and sees everyone staring right at her, the shaking gets worse. Her breath comes out as fast pants as she feels her knees beginning to betray her. She thought she could do this; it turns out that maybe she can’t. She takes a step backward then listens as a gasp slips from everyone’s lips. She takes another step back then the sound of her bouquet falling to the floor is her cue to turn and run like hell.
Scarlet runs as fast as her heeled feet will carry her right into the parking lot. As she begins scanning the parking lot trying to figure out what she’s going to do she hears someone calling from behind. She turns to see her best friends Evie and Gina running toward her holding their long indigo blue dresses up so they don’t trip over them. Soon their arms are around Scarlet and leading her toward Evie’s car just as she sees every one come out of the church. They toss her into the back seat then jump in the front and take off. She can’t help but notice all the stunned faces of everyone standing outside the church watching, including Jason’s. While her breathing becomes more normal, her heart sinks into her stomach. Holy shit, what did she just do?
We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. – Joseph Campbell
Scarlet Lemay always thought her wedding day would be the happiest day of her life. However, that was before she found herself at the end of the aisle looking toward her future and unable to take that final step forward. Second thoughts cause Scarlet to run, seeking a new beginning. Unfortunately, her ex-fiancé’ may just have other plans.
A chance encounter with a stunning stranger causes Scarlet to question herself. The charming real estate agent, Ethan Williams begins to taunt her thoughts and dreams. Scarlet knows it’s too soon to start dating again but something about this man keeps calling her to him.
With the encouragement of friends, Scarlet begins to build a new life, yet her past keeps coming back. Will she be able to let Ethan in or will her fear cause her to lose out on a chance at finding her true soul mate?

THE CONQUERED BRIDES COLLECTION
by Renee Rose, Ashe Barker, Sue Lyndon, Korey Mae Johnson, and Dinah McLeod
When the castle they called home is besieged and ultimately falls, five women are captured and carried off as wives by their foes. Will they be treated as no more than the spoils of war, or can their new lords prove themselves worthy of the love and submission of their conquered brides?
The Conquered Brides is a five-book collection featuring brand-new titles from five top erotic romance authors. This collection includes:
Commanding the Princess, by Korey Mae Johnson
As the ruler of Hohenzollern Castle in name only, Susanna has watched helplessly for years as her power-hungry uncle made one enemy after another for her. One enemy stands out, and the moment she catches sight of him, Princess Susanna is certain that it will be Gerhard of Bavaria who brings her world down around her. As his army smashes through her gates, Susanna makes the only choice she has left. She surrenders herself to Gerhard, hoping to win mercy for her people, though she fears it will come at the cost of her life. But she soon learns that Gerhard has other plans for her, plans which may end with her surrendering much more than just her castle to him.
The Knight’s Seduction, by Renee Rose
Avowed to never again yield to a man’s ill-treatment, Lady Daisy stands ready to fight to the death when her castle is sacked. The imposing knight Sir Barrett has other ideas, however, and to her dismay, Daisy soon finds herself not only disarmed, but soundly spanked as well. Sir Barrett takes her as his captive bride, but when she shows real terror at the prospect of consummating their marriage, he offers her a bargain. She will offer her body to him and accept the pleasurable torments he inflicts, but he will not claim her fully until she aches for it so badly she begs him. Certain she will do no such thing, Daisy agrees, but can she resist the knight’s seduction?
The Widow Is Mine, by Ashe Barker
Since her husband’s untimely passing, Lady Natalia has resigned herself to a quiet life as a young widow and perhaps one day as a nun. But when her adopted home is conquered by the enemy, her world is turned upside down. After he rescues her from the chaos of Hohenzollern’s fall, Duke Stefan of Richtenholst cannot imagine allowing Natalia to languish behind the walls of a convent. The duke takes Natalia home as his wife, and he quickly proves himself ready to compel her obedience when it is necessary, but can he ever truly make her his own?
Conquering Lady Claire, by Sue Lyndon
As Hohenzollern Castle falls, mayhem unfolds around Lady Claire, and her only aim is to lead as many women and children of the castle to safety as possible. In an odd turn of fortune, her courageous efforts ultimately lead to her capture by none other than Lord Galien of Minrova, the very man that her brother, a powerful duke, recently commanded to find her and claim her as his wife. Claire’s defiance is quickly overcome by means of a firm hand applied to her bare bottom, but Galien is not content merely going through the motions of a political marriage. His skilled lovemaking soon leaves his new bride begging for more, but can he conquer her heart as well?
Kidnapped and Claimed, by Dinah McLeod
When her husband’s repeated infidelities and drunken insults become too much to bear, Lady Cecily flees to her childhood home at Hohenzollern, but things quickly go from bad to worse and she is kidnapped from the castle stables only moments after her arrival. Cecily ignores her abductor’s warnings of ruin about to befall Hohenzollern and his claim that he took her from the castle only to keep her safe. She resists him every step of the way, until at last he spanks her long and hard. Despite his firm chastisement, it soon becomes clear to Cecily that her captor cares for her in a way her husband never did. But can she forgive him for stealing her from her home?
Publisher’s Note: The Conquered Brides contains spankings, sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
I know a lot of you like the nitty-gritty details of my love life, including DD and the rest of the naughty stuff, and I still have a lot to say on the subject. James and I are still in a DD relationship, but since the last time I posted I definitely have new things to say about it. So stay tuned; I’m about to get all opinionated again!
So keep your eyes open. Until then, look through my older stuff on the topic if you’d like!
I have two books I’ve finished and am working on the publisher’s (James’) suggestions so I can send it to a copy editor and get those books up. Then I have two others half done! If you’re curious as to where I am at any given point, you can always go HERE and check up on my progress. I promise I don’t dick around very often, but I do always have about fifty projects going on at the same time, and SNP comes first–I can’t be the bottle-neck on anything there, I have James, Jamie, and several authors depending me to get published on-time… And I depend on them! I love the authors I work with, I’m very privileged to work with them, and I don’t want to blow it!
So, I know you think these are excuses as to why you don’t have Otherworldly Discipline, Two in your hands… and you’re totally right, but I figured I owe you guys at least an excuse. I can’t keep you waiting too much longer, though, or else I fear I’ll lose my “author” status altogether!
Because of my publishing business, I cannot make covers for people who write within my niche genre (spanking & BDSM). If this rule changes, I will make an announcement. Sorry for this rule–I love the writers of this genre, but what tends to happen is I make good art covers that compete with my business’ authors work, and I don’t want to do that to them.
However, if you write for a different niche, I would love to diversify my portfolio and take up your project!
Please write to me at email@example.com and introduce yourself with a copy of your manuscript and a summary and I’ll send you a link to my cover form!
Want your project to be perfect? Choose your top ten favorite covers that you can think of, (if not 10, then 3 will do, but 10 makes it REALLY easy) and send them along with your email. If you like the title of one, colors of another, and general look of another, that’s cool, too! You have a style you like, you just might not realize it! My job is to give you a cover you love, and when I can I like to do it on the first try!
Cost: Minimum $100 (Maximum $200). Price will be discussed when project is taken up and stock photos are selected.
Includes 1 free promotional item from a given selection of styles. Every additional promotional item is $20-$100 (depending on the complication of the promotional item.)
If you commission a series, I give bulk discounts if the general “look” of the series remains the same.
Going through final revisions.
Commanding the Princess is a medieval novella that will be sold in a Medieval collection along with works from Renee Rose, Sue Lyndon, Ashe Barker, and Dinah McLeod. They are all stand-alone novels but plots are within the same time and place. The book will also be up for sale individually. Series will be released February 2015.
Susanna, a Princess Regent, has had her kingdom sacked by the Holy Roman Empire, and pleads for mercy for her remaining citizens from the mercenary-turned-commander, Gerhard. Unfortunately for her, Gerhard has to turn her in to the Emperor to be tried for her life… but unfortunately for Gerhard–he was in love with the saucy royal at first sight. Could these enemies find love together? Or just a night of passion before Susanna’s world comes to a tragic end?
A sequel to Being Their Baby that takes place five weeks after the last book ended, we find the Hobbes family go through new challenges. Josh is trying to forge a perminant relationship with Sophie, Charlie and Liz have to plan a wedding, and Sophie gets up to her eyeballs in trouble. This book will include an F/M scene as well as plenty of three-some sex, anal play, tons of spanking and humiliation, and enough eroticism to make your eyes bulge.
Although there’s a similar title in use, this is not part of my Being Their Baby collection. Being Her Daddy is a contemporary DD & Ageplay romance between a contemporary heterosexual couple. You’ll see tons of sex, anal play, spanking, and humiliation play galore. My husband James is leading this project, and I’m excited to be writing a book side by side with him. He’s fantastic.
Going through final revisions.
Should be out before Valentine’s day. I’ve had to rewrite a few chapters and characters with my editor’s suggestions, which has been extremely tough since I’m surrounded by deadlines left and right. I’m hoping to have the edits done in a couple of days, however.
As for the plot–this picks up 2 decades after the end of Otherworldly Discipline, Book One. Although Charlotte’s survived, she’s taken in by a demigod who keeps her as a childlike pet, all while Ashcroft has descended into depression and has taken to walking through the Otherworld as a wandering wizard while Moriarty’s family has taken control of the tower. When Moriarty’s children get kidnapped and Charlotte (called Maili) tries to escape a new, abusive husband, lives get thrown into turmoil. With old enemies charging towards them with a whole army, can the ill-fated group survive all the obstacles ahead of them, and can things ever be as they were?
Russian billionaires Braum Vetter and Jakob Brunner have developed one of the most advanced computer anti-hacking programs in the world, and always on their tails are blackhat hackers that want to take them down. Jacey Cameron is a young sauvant who has been in the underworld since an early age, and who’s always on the run from her own demons. When she’s blackmailed by one of her enemies to infiltrate Jakob Brunner’s personal harddrive, she might find herself way in over her head. Seducing Jakob seems impossible by itself, but as the man is interested in ageplay and erotic humiliation play, she wonders how far she has to go, especially as she starts loving the two billionaires who care for her.
Hopefully this will be out by February.
