Lady Sally’s other adventures

Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester is the main character of Mistress Of The Air. She’s a larger than life, incorrigible dominatrix who travels across the Empires of Europe finding new and inventive ways to punish her submissive gentlemen and creating mayhem along the way.

Lady Sally was featured in other adventures before Mistress Of The Air. Her first appearance was in a short story, ‘Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester and the Silk Merchant of Samarkand’, which appeared in an anthology called Beltane Fire (Xcite Books, 2012). In this story, she travels to the silk route city of Samarkand to follow up an account in the journal of her ancestor who tells of a marvellous weave of silk that works like a kind of ancient day Viagra. In fact, we find out in this story that Lady Sally is descended from a Samarkand courtesan. She ends up getting fucked on the tomb of Tamerlane the magnificent by her silk merchant.

She returned in ‘Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester and the Walled Garden’ in an anthology of stories on the theme of gardening erotica in Fifty Shades of Green (Greenwoman Publishing, 2014). In this story she commissions landscape gardener, Jack Buckingham, to design a walled garden planted with poisonous and prickly flora which Lady Sally proceeds to use on him before fucking him in her new garden (yes, there’s a theme developing here!)

Lady Sally possessed some distinctly Steampunk characteristics in both these earlier stories, especially her love of fine corsetry and nice afternoon teas. But in ‘Lady Sally’ Rudston-Chichester and the Automaton Horse’ (Forbidden Fiction, 2015, reproduced in the anthology Of Passion and Steam, 2017) she developed into a fully-fledged Steampunk character. After her horse is beaten by Lord Melchiot’s at York Races, believing she’s been cheated, she plots her revenge involving a brass, automaton horse that provide unique opportunities for some exquisite punishment.

Mistress Of The Air does sneak in some references to Lady Sally’s earlier adventures including her lineage as the ancestor of a Samarkand courtesan. And she has fun telling her companions these tales whilst smoking a hookah pipe of hashish whilst in Istanbul.

So, as you can see, the character of Lady Sally has been developing, reaching its culmination in Mistress Of The Air. You can expect wild escapades, kinky BDSM, the fastest airship ever built, dastardly devices, explosions and nice cups of teas. I hope you’ll join Lady Sally for the ride

Book Blurb

Mistress of the Air is a Comic, Steampunk, Erotic Adventure.

Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester owns a brass mine in Zanzibar, a Lapsang Souchong tea plantation in China, a rubber tree farm in Malaysia, trunk loads of corsetry, and the country’s largest collection of antique whips and floggers.

Larger than life, and itching to find new and inventive ways to punish her submissive gentlemen, the Edwardian dominatrix has a vision. Embracing the spirit of the new age of aviation, she embarks on a series of adventures on her own airship, The Corseted Domme, with her transvestite maid, Victoria, her airship pilot, Captain Wyndham, and her automaton sex toy, Borghild.

A select group of submissive gentlemen, consisting of a duke, bishop, lawyer and banker, is invited to join Lady Sally so she can try out her new dastardly devices and sex toys on them. She whips, spanks and punishes her way across the Empires of Europe, dropping off to visit her aristocratic relatives and friends for afternoon tea.

But Lady Sally’s journey is not uneventful. War is threatening to break out and the Ministry of Aviation want to commandeer her airship for the war effort. And when The Corseted Domme has a crash landing, Lady Sally realises there is a stowaway on board intent on sabotaging her airship.

There will be wild escapades, kinky BDSM, dastardly devices, explosions and nice cups of tea.

Extract

Lady Sally was an organised and ruthless shopper. She had a vision for what she needed and set about her purchases with determination. She was also a tough negotiator and bartered hard with the traders to get a good, and fair, price. This was, of course, only what they would have expected, but if they thought this rich, aristocratic English woman was going to be a soft touch, that illusion was soon dispelled. Lady Sally used a combination of hard bargaining skills, along with her undoubted charm, to secure a good price.

They went from block to block in the bazaar, each zone specialising in a particular craft. She wanted hand-woven Turkish rugs and bought several of them, with brightly coloured geometric patterns. She purchased ceramics, copper bowls, hukkah pipes, silver tea pots, decorated glasses and lamps. That was before she even got to the section selling materials and clothing where she bought silks, cottons, kaftans, gowns, silk slippers and an abundant supply of silver jewellery. Then there were the spices and incenses, and last, but not least the teas. There were stalls selling a vast range of teas, many blends she was familiar with, but she also purchased pomegranate and jasmine teas, which she’d never tried before.

The chests filled up quickly, and it wasn’t long before the six men found themselves carting the laden trunks around the bazaar with them. Lady Sally shopped like a whirling dervish, and it wasn’t until it was time for tea that she finally stopped.

They retired to a tea shop recommended by Mr Mustafa. Lady Sally was sipping green tea whilst inhaling enormous drafts of smoke from a huge hukkah pipe. She was in a good mood… an exceedingly good mood.

She was giggling manically and telling them tales of her colourful past.

“Did I tell you about the time in Samarkand when I got fucked on the tomb of Tamerlane the Magnificent by my silk merchant?” she announced, proceeding to relate the story in graphic detail.

Then she told them about her poison garden at Rudston Hall, and how she’d fucked her gardener, and about how she punished Lord Melchiot on her automaton horse.

She was in fits of giggles.

“Oh, I’ve had such marvellous adventures.” She turned to the merchant, “So tell me, Mr Mustafa, is this what is called ‘hashish’?”

“Yes, Lady Sally, the very finest… and potent.”

“Well, I must say, this is wonderful stuff. My last purchase will be to stock up with some to take back to England.”

By now the whole party was well and truly stoned, except for Victoria, who had a ‘gippy’ stomach from the horse’s testicle, and had declined the offer of smoking hashish. In between reclining on the divans collapsed in a constant state of giggles, they managed to demolish a huge plate of flatbreads, lamb kebabs, chickpea dip, dates and other delicacies.

A young, veiled woman approached them.

“Come here, my dear,” called Lady Sally. “What a lovely necklace. It’s so shiny. Oh, my goodness, I’ve never seen anything so shiny! I don’t think my poor eyes can stand the brightness.”

“Please, are you the famous English lady, Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester?”

Lady Sally was not averse to bit of flattery, “Oh, famous, well yes, naturally my reputation does proceed me.”

“I’ve read about you in the Istanbul Sun. You are a strong lady who will stand up to males and protect women. I have come to plead for your help.”

Victoria’s ears pricked up. Alarm bells rang.

“Yes, do tell me more,” Lady Sally encouraged.

“My name is Nisrahur. You see, my sister has been picked up from the streets by the sultan’s guards where she has been taken to his harem as a slave. I know the girls are badly mistreated. I was hoping a lady of your standing could negotiate with the sultan to get her released.”

“I will do better than that,” exclaimed Lady Sally. “I will rescue her!”

Her maid tried to intervene, “Madam, is this wise? This could end up as a disaster. I see more explosions and being chased out of Istanbul.”

“Victoria, let it not be said Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester will not leap to the defence of her sex for a noble cause.”

Not Blocked, Just Sloooow by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #writerslife

Hi folks,

Lately, I’ve been having a bout of writer’s sloooow. I think I might have just made up the name, there. Unlike writer’s block where we just stare at screens and nothing comes out, writer’s slow is where we know where we want to get to, but are struggling immensely. Yesterday I managed about 500 words, which got me to the end of a chapter. And every word felt like I was dragging it out of me and onto the page. Yes, I achieved something, but I can usually do a lot more than that!

The trouble is, I then got into bed later on and started thinking about what I was going to do with the next chapter. It was then I realised I’d made a huge screw up in the previous sloooow chapter. It’s easily fixable, I think, but then I got to wondering if perhaps that was why I was struggling so much. Did my subconscious notice my boo-boo, and make it difficult for me to move on with the story? If so, subconscious, why the hell didn’t you say something!? Keeping it inside doesn’t help me. *sigh*

Now it’s time to go back and fix the mistake, and see if I can move forward from there. Let’s hope things speed up from now on in… I want to release this book next month!

Happy Reading,

Lucy x

How Long Do You Like It? by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #writerslife

Hi everyone,

So, how long do you like it? Now, now, don’t be rude! 😉 I’m talking about book lengths and word counts here!

As I’m sure most of you know, I write a huge amount of variety. That includes in genre, pairing and book length/word count. I just love to work on different types of projects. Admittedly, I would like to write more full-length books, but that would mean writing fewer short stories and novellas, and I often write those either because I’ve been inspired by a call for submissions, or been specifically invited to a project, which is always lovely. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to take part in all the projects I’d like to, and write all the ideas that pop into my head.

Which brings me back to my question… what word length books do you prefer? I’ve been lucky enough to have a few releases out this year, with more coming, but they’ve all been short stories or novellas. My last full-length novel was (re)released in September of last year, and also a co-authored full-length novel was released in October of last year. I’m currently working on my next one, which I hope to release in the next couple of months.

So please let me know in the comments… what book length do you prefer, and why?

Happy Reading!
