I am a writer of fiction and erotica. Loving life and what it has to offer.

Book 2 of The Red Lair Is Here!

Welcome back!

May 29th was a day full of joy, not only because I had officially graduated with my Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology, but because my third book, Blind and Bound, was published. I had fun writing the next part of The Red Lair series. Not only have I grown to love my characters, but I feel like I’ve gotten comfortable with writing about blindness. I love seeing the development of my characters as they deal with their problems. ❤

About The Book

This story follows Jenny and Cyrus through their relationships, their experiences with BDSM, and their trials. Jenny is a 21-year-old girl who is in a relationship where her partner doesn’t support the lifestyle. Cyrus is a 29-year-old workaholic whose family has disowned him because of his interests. After Cyrus promises Jenny one night of exploration, will they be able to let go to please their loved ones? Or will their desire for one another be what binds them in the end?

My Thoughts

I knew that I wanted this book to be different than Blindly In Love. I wanted the characters to be different, and that’s why I made their conflicts more complex. This book also features two blind characters. I wanted to see if I could pull it off: writing from two different perspectives, two different worlds, with both being blind. Not going to spoil it, but I will say that Cyrus’s family is a prime example of how the sighted world should be more aware. As I mentioned in my last post, there is stigma surrounding the disabled and sex, and my goal with writing these books is that people will see that disability has no effect on a person living their life.

I hope y’all enjoyed this read, and I’m hoping everyone is staying safe and healthy.
XO,

Kelanie

A New Perspective

Hey all!

It’s been a while, I know! However, I didn’t come here to update you on my life. I’m here because my second book is PUBLISHED! I’m so proud of this book and what it represents. Themes of the book include blindness, romance, and a bit of BDSM.

About The Book

Dante Woods is a 22-year-old dominant who is blind. He is criticized by his family because of this and his weight, so he plays women due to his lack of self-esteem. Cassidi is a 22-year-old submissive who has had bad luck with relationships. She thinks that sex is the way to love. When they meet at The Red Lair, which is the hottest BDSM club in Columbus, Ohio, will they fall in love or will their problems be too much for each other? I won’t reveal anything else, but if this summary has hooked you, I’d suggest grabbing a copy.

Why Blindness?

As mentioned before in a previous post, I am blind. No, this book wasn’t written about me, but I wanted to shine some light on disabilities and sex. There is a stigma about disabled people and their abilities. As you will see with Dante in Blindly In Love, his family doesn’t understand his blindness and they don’t try to. Blindness, along with other disabilities, isn’t something to be afraid of. We are people just like you, our eyes just don’t work. I’m hoping that this book will open people’s eyes to what it’s like being blind, and allow questions to come to light. Yes, I am asking you all to ask questions about blindness, what it’s like, etc. No question is too stupid or dumb, and I am not ashamed of my disability.
Okay, the moment y’all have been waiting for! Enjoy the book, and please, question me! I’d love to educate those who are curious!

Update

Hi all! I am coming to you with awesome news:

My book is finally published! TBH, I didn’t think I would make it to this point, and well, here I am. On May 30, I hit the PUBLISH button, and I waited impatiently for the email notification. When I received it, I knew I had to tell someone, but who first? Should I share it on Facebook, then send it to the important people in my contacts? I did it all, sharing it to certain places, and all the while, feeling floaty and on cloud 9. The amount of “congratulations” was overwhelming, so much so that when I traveled by plane two days later to visit my boyfriend, it still didn’t feel real.

About The Book

When You Feel It features stories of different dynamics within the BDSM lifestyle, but it’s not just about the sex for these characters. It focuses on the love, trust, pleasure, and strength that a relationship within the lifestyle has. There are six stories of varying lengths, but I promise you that each story will keep you coming back for more!

Final Thoughts

It was a pleasure to write, so I hope you all enjoy it!

Here is the link to the book, and if you feel so compelled after reading, please leave a review on Goodreads and Amazon. Thanks for the support!

Who Am I?

Welcome to my blog! I write under the pen name Kelanie Black, and I’m excited to share my journey with my readers. Here’s a little about me.

I knew from the age of twelve that I loved writing song lyrics, so I did that until I was thirteen. I took a break, and I had an idea for a story rolling around in my head about a pregnant teenager. I wrote two stories for that idea, but I gave up on that after I hit a dead end with the plot.

My fiction series, The Beat, is by far my favorite work in progress. I started writing it when I was fourteen, taking experiences from my own life as a section leader of a percussion section, to be the original plot. It has lots of twists and turns, not only with marching band but in the main character, Tamika’s, personal life as well. I finished Brutality, the seventh book in the series in 2017, and I’m unsure if there will  be an eighth book.

I am currently in the editing process for my BDSM erotica collection of short stories. This collection features all types of implements such as canes, paddles, and more. It also features many different dynamics such as vanilla, d/s, and slave/master. I started writing it last summer, and I am hoping to have it published this June.

Personal Things To Note

I am blind, but it doesn’t stop me nor does it define me. I have been blind since birth, and I have accomplished some great things:

• I participated in the Ohio State School for the Blind Marching band.

• We were the first blind marching band to attend The Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, California. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my high school years.

• I am in college, studying to become a child psychologist. I want to help children suffering from bipolar disorder and depression. I also want to work with children with a variety of disabilities.

 

I have never been ashamed of being blind. I encourage questions of all sorts, because how will you know if you don’t ask?

Thanks for reading!
