Ebook Freebie For YOU On My Birthday/Anniversary.

photo (4)I’m celebrating my 39th birthday and my 2nd year as a published author. Same as last year around this time, Sleepy Willow’s Bonded Soul (The Narcoleptic Vampire Series, Vol. 1)  will be FREE on Kindle for 5 days. Anyone interested can download it from 9/26/13 to 9/30/13. Be sure to share this info with your reading buddies, especially if they enjoy erotic paranormal/fantasy books.

What can you expect from this book? Interracial relationships, taboo sex, an abundance of profanity, diverse characters, dark humor, character-driven first person narrative, gore, violence, an unbiased examination of religious and spiritual concepts, and glimpses into my warped imagination. It’s not for the squeamish or easily offended. So beware.

Synopsis: Ever since vampirism became illegal, the undead have been hunted to near-extinction. So Willow has to watch her back to make sure no one finds out what she is. And that’s not easy considering she’s a vampire with narcolepsy. Predator can become prey at any moment, especially with the skillful Vampire Extermination Team (VET) on the job.

Hoping to blend in with the nightlife, Willow takes advantage of being an animated corpse by performing for necrophiliacs at premiere fetish club Hades. Here, she discovers colleagues with other supernatural secrets. She’s also unexpectedly drawn to Remi, her most loyal fan, despite his deviant sexual nature and personality disorder. But succumbing to her lust is not a good idea since her maistre vampire forbids it.

Now Willow has to outsmart VET agents, escape bounty hunters, and find a cure for narcolepsy…or vampirism. And she’s got to break the bond with her maistre, no matter how powerful and unrelenting he is. 

Most importantly, can she stay awake long enough to do any of it?

Be sure to download your copy between 9/26/13 and 9/30/13, and share this info with anyone you think can handle it. 😀

New Sleepy Willow's Bonded Soul Cover

FYI: The lovely cover model is my pal, Jaies Baptiste. You can read her interview here.

*The selfie photo is the first of its kind. My mother wanted to know what I was wearing on Thursday night before I went to hang out with some local vamps (I’ll give you deets later), so I sent her this pic. I thought…what the hell. Might as well share it with the world. You only turn 39 once.*

Where I Got The Idea For Such A Taboo Subject.

“Dicey, you seem like such a sweet, smart, sane woman. Where in the world did you get the idea to write about a thirty-nine-year-old married mother of three having an affair with a sixteen-year-old boy?”

Good question. I have every intention of answering, but you know I like to do lengthy intros first. So…

First off, thanks! I am a little sweet and smart, but I’m insane in the membrane. And I’m not the only one because the idea for my novel SHAMEFUL derived from a discussion with a close friend, who thought it would be an interesting topic as well. Plus, sales of my book have been going quite well. So, that tells me others are interested in reading something different. Even if it is taboo.

Secondly, thanks for actually asking me about it. Normally, when I tell folks about the book, they start counting how many kids I have. I have TWO. I look nothing like the woman on the cover. I have never cheated on my husband. I was thirty-four when I first started writing the story, and I’m only thirty-seven now. No, the book is not a memoir. It’s not an autobiography. It is NOT about me or my family. Got it?

Now…

How did my friend and I get on the topic?

We had just finished reading…

(drum roll, please)

The TWILIGHT series.

You read right.

We read all four books. In a little over a week.

I am a vampire fanatic who fell in love with Jacob’s character. 1. He’s a huge dude, well over six feet. 2. He’s at least 110 degrees hot, which I prefer over Edward’s ice coldness. 3. He’s sweet and devoted to Bella, who’s constantly getting his feelings trampled on. 4. He has a Native American-tanned complexion and long hair…until he cuts it. 5. He can turn into a killing machine and kick some ass.

My homegirl and I were squealing over his character like all the rest of the Twihard teenage girly fans. And it seemed weird. I mean Jacob’s a teenager in the books. It didn’t seem right to love his character so much. At least we could watch the movies without feeling pervy. Because Taylor Lautner didn’t quite look like the Jacob we imagined.

Then he packed on thirty pounds of muscle.

Hello.

Our convos got reeeeally interesting then. And I saw bunches of forums with grown-ass women discussing Jacob/Lautner too. Most had completely overlooked his age, which was seventeen at the time. Others wrote about all the “interesting” things they’d do to ol’ Lautner after he turned eighteen. Not that it mattered, because none would EVER have a shot with him, but I looked up the age of consent laws and learned he was legal in most states.

Hmmm.

My story had been born. BUT that wasn’t good enough. And older woman having a younger lover has been done a million times in a million different ways. I deliberately dropped his age to sixteen so that I could address all the issues that would arise if those middle-aged women from the forums actually did get their hands on an underage Lautner…or Jacob…or my character Alex.

I can’t believe I just revealed that secret.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Taboo Fiction–Daring or Scandalous?

In case you haven’t read my previous blog posts, tweets, or FB status updates: I wrote a novel about a beautiful thirty-nine-year-old married mother of three, who has an affair with a sixteen-year-old stud. And I haven’t been struck down by lightning. Yet.

I did get this response on twitter though: “that’s called statutory rape and it’s NOT cool.”

Well, duh. Good thing it’s fiction. And Dicey writes sexy, wild, daring, risky books.

Now that we got that out of the way–I’m not advocating statutory rape. I’m not promoting infidelity. No more than James Patterson encourages murder. Or Jeff Lindsay and the producers of “Dexter” urge you to become a serial killer. Or the producers of “Arlington Road” suggest terrorism.

I merely write fiction. It’s entertainment. And the fact that I’ve not cheated on my husband with a sixteen-year-old is what makes it entertaining. To me. I can get in the mind of my character and understand why she does what she does whether I agree with it or not. I can also understand how things end up the way they do.

And if you find the synopsis interesting, then you might find my novel entertaining as well. If not, stay away from it. It’s only for those who do.

And there are those who do. I also got this tweet: “I want to read that.”

Fair enough.

Fortunately, you can live vicariously through my characters without experiencing their angst. Because my characters aren’t real, but their dilemmas are. Matter of fact, when I was editing my story, I met several people who told me they experienced some of the same things I wrote about or they knew of someone who did. I even met a man who has been the sixteen-year-old boy. It happens. Every day. To your neighbors. Teachers. Justin Beiber (allegedly). It is fiction based in reality. Without all the real life consequences.

This is the Kindle edition of my book. And the Smashwords edition. Paperbacks coming soon.

Shameful by Dicey Grenor Available Now!

It is with pleasure that I announce the release of my second novel, SHAMEFUL. I actually wrote it first, but never mind that. It’s ready now. Ready to entertain, intrigue…and piss some people off.

That’s right. In keeping with my sexy, wild, daring, risky image–I’ve published this taboo fiction about a beautiful thirty-nine-year-old married mother of three, who has an affair with a sixteen-year-old stud.

As with all my works, it is for adults who enjoy atypical stories. Who enjoy unconventional romances. Who are not looking for inspiration but for an escape from everyday life. Who are open-minded enough to put judgment aside for the sake of literary enjoyment.

Read the full synopsis on my website.

Ebook is available on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com (turn adult filter OFF). Paperbacks will be available by December 1st.

Enjoy! Then write a review and tell others about it.
