#Release Day! Welcome to the release of Caraway Carter's "7 With 1 Blow" and an EXCLUSIVE excerpt and article about SAFEWORDS!

Join me in welcoming Caraway Carter to my blog and the release of his newest novel, 7 With 1 Blow! Thank you for joining us today, Caraway!

Thank you for hosting me today, Ash. I’d like to kick off this special post about "Safewords" with an exclusive excerpt from 7 With 1 Blow.

Brief Excerpt

Eventually, he fell into a drifting, restless slumber, chased by dreams where he was repeatedly humiliated on a stage in front of his former boys and his current Scene followers. In one dream, instead of the boys taking their proper punishments, they were punishing him, laughing at him as he protested— the same way hed always laughed at them if they were stupid enough to try to use a safeword. Safewords were for fakers, for posers. His boys didn’t have safewords. Now, neither did he.

Today, I present you with the definition of SAFEWORDS. The Urban Dictionary defines it: In BDSM community, a word (usually irrelevant and strange in the context of the sexual situation) agreed by the participating parties to cease the activity. This is so that the submissive partner(s) can say "stop" and "no" as often as they want during the session and use the safe word when they actually mean it.

Safe words are important. And anyone who tells you different, is someone you need to not be around. In 7 With 1 Blow I utilize the stoplight safe words.  Green means Go, I love this. Yellow means, slow it down. Red means, stop it now. And I’ve added Blue, which means, I’m having a medical emergency.

Sometimes people choose safe words and they either aren’t heard or the person using the safe word decides they don’t want to use it. I made the mistake once of using uncle for a safe word, and at the time I could never imagine saying uncle ever, not even if I was in pain or too much pain, I just couldn’t come to grips with the fact that I said I wanted to bring my uncle into that scene.

I recently read an article on negotiations; both the Dom and the sub need to be honest with each other, because the sub might have a different slow down in their mind. So, you need to be very specific with what you want and don't want, and how much.

Be sure to check out the other blog posts, I’ve got a few more stops where I’ll have more exclusive excerpts and will explain a few more aspects of BDSM found in my upcoming release: 7 With 1 Blow!

About 7 with 1 Blow

When Taylor Little, who styles himself "Dom Seven," is unwillingly taken into custody by the Cadre, he is put between a rock and a hard place. Either he will go to jail for his abuses against the local BDSM community, or he will accept retraining from the bottom up, learning to be a slave before he ever lays a flogger on another human being again.

In this tale of redemption, Taylor must face his demons as he learns to accept his status with mouth, mind, and heart.

WARNING: This story contains scenes of sexual intimacy and BDSM.

The man of the evening arrived—late as usual, but no one was surprised. It was just his style. During his few short years in the Scene, Taylor Little had gathered quite a following between customers, hangers-on, flatterers, and the occasional scene partner. It wasn’t the most experienced or the most prestigious crowd in the local Scene—in fact, many of Little’s followers were even less experienced than he was—and people had noticed. Important people, people who could make or break a new Dom.

Not that Taylor Little cared. He’d ruined munches, crashed play parties, and generally acted like an arrogant banty rooster in a too-small hen yard. It wasn’t surprising when he would show up at a munch, poach an inexperienced boy, and put him on the web in a BDSM porn shoot a week later; it was just inappropriate.

His lateness was also par for the course. Taylor Little—who called himself “Dom Seven”—made his elaborate entrance. Normally, his slaves crawled before him, regardless of the venue or whether it was appropriate. The sharper-tongued members of the Scene whispered that it was because of his height, which, even with his heavy boots, topped out at five foot seven. But this time, his current slave walked in front of him, shirtless, his neck enclosed inside a black leather collar. A chain snaked away from the collar’s single jump ring and into Taylor’s black-gloved hand.

In an uncharacteristic nod to propriety, Taylor had had this slave wear dirty white Converse tennis shoes and tight black jeans, with a thick black leather belt. As they entered the room, a scowl crossed Taylor’s face. It were as if no one had paid attention to anything he had done with his slave; the crowd was still looking at Mistress Joan.

Taylor and his slave were the only ones not looking at Mistress Joan. Instead, Taylor looked around the room to see if anyone was checking out his new boy while the slave kept his own eyes focused on his shoes. Not a single soul was looking their way. With a frown and a muttered command, Taylor tapped the slave on the shoulder. The boy nodded his head and dropped to his knees as Taylor looked around for an open chair. As the boy fell to the ground, the door of the backroom swung shut so that no one, aside from those gathered in the room, was witness to the slave boy’s further humiliation.
