Dancer Playlist: Candy

Candy’s music’s all over the place. From upbeat pop, rap, and EDM, to songs tinged with bittersweet longing and tragedy… She’s a wild card. You never know quite what you’ll get, since it’s whatever feels fun to her in the moment.

Candy knows what she’s doing, and her music reflects that. Powerful women stalking their prey, and dancing without a care. She can be out of control or brazen at times, but that’s part of her charm.

Dancer Playlist: Lia

I’ve been so swamped with new stories, I’ve gotten behind on sharing playlists and such with you guys! Starting with Lia’s.

Lots of classic rock, and a handful of newer songs with an updated classic rock vibe. Lia doesn’t try to play to current tastes- she picks the stuff that makes her customers feel young. If she gets a younger DJ, it might take a little negotiation to get a fuller playlist for a busy night shift, but her songs will be a respite for older guys who’re put off by all the pop and rap stuff. And there’s money to be made in that.

Love and lapdances!

A little on the importance of respectful representation.

Okay. So some of you’ve noticed that I’m *ahem* outspoken on some issues, such as issues related to sex work, domestic violence, etc.

And the why for that’s what I want to talk about today.

Trigger warning for discussions on sexual abuse, self-harm, mental illness, all that stuff.

Queen of Clubs: Rhapsody and Cora 2 are now available!

 Because I regally suck at talking about stuff right when it comes out. I’ve been updating links, and talking to those of you on my mailing list. But life got in the way of sharing the news here. Not all the vendors have these stories yet, and I’ll continue updating the Queen of Clubs series page with links, as they become available.

Queen of Clubs: Rhapsody*
Available from Amazon, Kobo, Smashwords.

  *  Formerly available exclusively on Amazon as part of the Seven First Kisses bundle. 

Queen of Clubs: Cora 2
Available from Amazon, B&NiTunesKobo, Smashwords.

Rhapsody stars three people who’ll be emerging in series of their own: the hero and heroine of the story move onward in the Rex Roderick, Sex Detective series, coming soon. And another character moves on to become the heroine of her own tale in the Princess of Thieves series, coming soon.

Cora 2 returns to Cora and Kirk, but with a lot of new drama… You’ll know where it picks up, if you read Tori.

Okay- I had a lot of fun with these. Rex is largely my attempt to step outside my boundaries a bit, creating something with more action-centered plots, and a film-noir tone. Because variety is the spice of life. It’s steamy, and smutty, and a blast to write. And Anna, of Princess of Thieves, is one of my favorite characters to write, because of how she carries her wounds with her.  Their stories have a little work yet before they’re ready to get chucked into the world, like baby birds shoved out of their nest so they can learn to flap their wings.  But they’re acoming. (Wow. I’ve never written that phrase out before. It looks weird in text.)

And Cora 2… well, I’m a sucker for twisted webs, and I couldn’t resist following up with her, with how the job has changed her, and where she’s at, finding herself. You’re gonna see a lot more continuity here on out, though each story’s still pretty accessible as a standalone. She’s kinda a taste of where the new season’s going. Soon, too, I’ll be sharing Lia’s story with you. Just a few weeks away… So ARC readers, mailing list readers, stay tuned for news on that. Or join my facebook group to get some additional notifications and teasers.

Love and lapdances!

Queen of Clubs: Marina, Marina’s Makeup

So. I know I’m not caught up on these yet- I still have to do Crystal’s, Tori’s, Malia’s looks, and photograph Cora’s. Illustration takes time, even if you can crib off someone else’s sketch.

But Marina. The most cutthroat girl at the Queen of Clubs, determined to present the best possible fantasy she can…. Suffice to say the babe’s got some bedroom eyes. Not for the faint of heart, or the office. Reminder- for a guide to terminology used and techniques I may refer to, check here. For a (slightly) more daytime appropriate look, use a less sticky primer, and for greater vibrancy, use a tacky one, or pick shadows you can foil. I went with option A.

A minor disclaimer on this one- I had some issues with my primer, that coupled with my tedinitis, and my brows being severely ungroomed… Well, my look may make the look a bit different than the chart. For Marina’s bone structure, she’s got a little more lid than me- you can see I mostly have browbone, so my crease contour is different. Joys of designing looks for a variety of facial structures. I’ll just wink and say that’s an example of how you can tailor one of the facecharts to your own features.

Stay tuned for Tori and Crystal’s vintage looks, and Cora’s largely daytime look, when I get caught up and manage to whip those eyebrows into line!

Dancer Playlist: Malia

With Malia live, it’s time to talk about her music! She likes it slow, a little aggressive, and if it has an orchestral hook, all the better.

Oftentimes, Malia’s music isn’t clubworthy; when it can be incorporated into a set, it’s entirely because of her capacity as a performer. Rules are meant to be broken and all that.

But it’s lyrical, often melancholy, and it suits her.

Queen of Clubs: Cora’s Playlist

Okay- so a dancer’s playlist is a very personal thing.  Sometimes, it strikes a balance between her persona and her clients- grown men don’t want to listen to Taylor Swift, no matter how confident her music makes the dancer feel- and sometimes it’s something that says a lot about the dancer.

Cora’s music is slow, sexy, and sometimes at odds with the club’s playlist.  But it’s perfect for a night at home, with low lighting.
