“Level Up” series by Alexa Sommers – A Review

Let me say right off the bat that I loved the “Level Up” series for a number of reasons. Alexa is very clearly comfortable embracing her inner geek and melding it with playful sexuality in this hot tale. There’s so much to enjoy from a cast of characters with diverse personalities, comedic moments with eye-roll-inducing pop culture references, and no shortage of sexy encounters. And, as a Dungeon Master, I found it very easy to relate to the lead character. That might make me a bit biased, but I assure you it’s not a requirement for enjoying this series. Even if you’re not familiar with references, Alexa does pretty well to keep the reader informed of its source.

A prelude to the roundup!

As of writing this, I’m sitting here pondering the possibilities of the next #FantasySmutFriday prompt, and getting excited over the fact that it’s been one year since I started this meme, and managed to provide 52 total prompts based on common sexual fantasies. As I get ready to draft a roundup of all the submissions over the past year, I can’t help but think about how I managed to pull it off. And just to add more anxiety, I’m wondering how I’m going to do it again!

My Time at Smutathon

I had intended to write this post several days sooner, but like everything else on my plate at the moment, it’s coming out later than I had intended. I’m still working to catch up, and scratch the little itches in the form of new ideas I’ve created over the past week or so. But the big thing I wanted to talk about was the awesomeness that was Smutathon!!

Why I write – #F4TFriday

When I saw this week’s Food 4 Thought Friday prompt, I thought it would be a good idea to take up the challenge and talk about what pushes me to write. If you have been following up on my posts, then you already know a bit about my past and know that I grew up with a lot of siblings and not a lot of direction in my life. Writing was definitely not something I had intended to do with my life in the beginning. I was more the type to not have a plan for the future until about 5 minutes before it happened, which meant much of my free time was dedicated to playing video games as much as possible. It wasn’t that I didn’t care about what I would do, I just didn’t feel like I needed to worry about it at that moment.

My Smut Marathon Experience

Those of you who have followed me for a while already know that I was a participant of the Smut Marathon over the past year. For those that don’t, the Smut Marathon is a year-long event where writers of erotica and smut compete in story challenges that push us to improve our writing abilities. I only made it to Round 6, but I did have a lot of fun writing, reading, and voting on all of the great entries that were available. But before I tell you about my experience, I’d like to give an apology.

Thank you

I’ve delayed myself in writing this a few days as I have needed time to think about what I wanted to say, and how I wanted to say it. I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, or you’re noticing at this very moment, that badge over to the right of this post. (Probably not, if you’re reading this on mobile) As of a few days ago, I was placed on the list of Top 100 Sex Blogs of 2018, and it has really offset a series of mixed feelings I’ve been having recently about this whole thing I have been working on over the past 2 years I’ve been writing for Forbidden Writings. If you’ll indulge me.
