Hoping to please readers who like the Victorian stuff, I release The First Notebook of Emily Orn Wilkes, Secret Countess of Wessulk this week. It's a through-composed version of the story of "my" ancestress' initiation into a great drama of BDSM in Victorian England (and, it turns out, the rest of Europe as well), at the hands of the knowing Mrs. Smith.
Here's the tease for this week; Mrs. Smith is speaking:
“Please to peruse this letter; I think you will recognize the hand.”
The hand was Edmund’s.
“Dear Mrs. Smith, my gratitude at your accepting my credit is greater than I can express, the more since I am so smitten by Miss Orn’s charms and, consequently, so convinced of her merits that I could not stand to see her come to our marriage deprived of your assistance, which I have it on the best authority has rendered happy the marital relations of so many lords, ladies, gentlemen, and gentlemen's daughters. Your advice as to the specific articles that will make up her private wardrobe and to the sort of instruction she will require will be most welcome, but I must confess at the outset that I have my heart set on two things: first, a certain article for our wedding night, one that I once saw another of your brides, Mrs. Vitreau, wear at a party given by her husband. I imagine you know the one I mean: besides some beautiful lace ornament, it has clasps on either side of the waist that afford to the bridegroom a certain convenience of access that, I find as I contemplate the moment when I am finally to possess Miss Orn’s charms, I am unwilling to do without. Second, there is a certain instrument of discipline for which I wish her to be fitted—the one worn by the Marchioness of W----, that has produced in that worthy lady such remarkable results. I enclose as you requested Miss Orn’s measurements, and a letter from her governess that documents the conduct that, as I wrote to you in my last, I had heard about previously. I am yours sincerely, Edmund Wilkes.”And the blurb (buy the book here!):
Mrs. Smith was suddenly very matter-of-fact. "Very well, Miss Orn. It is my custom to test a new girl’s obedience immediately. Stand up, if you please, and allow me to assist you in removing your clothing. In order that there be no false pretense here, let me warn you that you will be required to remove every garment, including your chemise."
My conscious mind now rose in open rebellion against the impulse that had had me give my word. How could I obey her? Why had I given my word to do so? Had I had any inkling she would ask such a thing?
NOTE: This book comprises material previously published in the following books: Emily, Victorian Bride; Emily in the School for Wives; Emily Undressed; Emily's Bath; Emily's Morning; and EXPLORATIONS: Books 21-24. I here present them as a continuous story and without the intrusion of the modern narrative of my fantasy-narrative, for readers who might be more interested in this Victorian material.
In this notebook, imagined as passed down to me from my great-great-grandmother, Emily Orn begins her initiation into a great drama of BDSM in Victorian England. Under the tutelage of Mrs. Smith, trainer of submissive brides, she learns to know and to love her craving for shameful degradation and erotic submission.
This book of EXPLORATIONS contains fiction elaborating the following sorts of fantasy that you may wish to avoid: Mf, ff, Ff, spanking, mild watersports. It's intended for over-18 audiences who, like me, are interested in exploring the lines between pleasure and pain, dominance and submission, and fantasy and reality. All characters depicted are consenting adults.Read all the Saturday Spankings!
