Uniform Behaviour

I religiously read and love the posts on this blog, so imagine my delight when I given a guest spot! Those crazy Grippers were going to let me loose on their cool-ass blog. I was pretty excited, until I was given the theme – Naughty But Nice.

For a second I thought “crap – they want me to write about Christmas.” Luckily, the next sentence in the email contained some blissful words “…but you don’t have to make it a Christmas thing.” BIG sigh of relief. So here I am, not writing about Christmas. If that’s what you were expecting, sorry! I’m just not a Christmassy kinda gal.

Despite this wonderful news, I still had to rack my brains for something that would fit the bill. Then I realised the answer was staring me in the face. For the past few weeks I’ve been writing, reading, editing and promoting my brand new erotic anthology, Uniform Behaviour – Steamy Stories About Men and Women in Uniform. The anthology in itself is naughty but nice.

It’s naughty because it contains sixteen smutty stories about men and women in uniform. Between the covers nestle mucky stories about firemen, soldiers, sailors, police, security guards and even waiters, priests and cleaners! It’s naughty because it contains stories by me (and you already know I’m naughty), Victoria Blisse (minx), Justine Elyot (super smutter), Elizabeth Coldwell (erotic genius) and many, many more awesome writers. Uniform Behaviour even contains a story written by a soldier currently serving in Afghanistan, and his buddies don’t have a clue! Now that’s some covert writing.

I know you’re now itching to go and buy a copy, but just hang on a minute. I want to tell you why it’s nice, first! Then I’ll let you go, promise. The anthology is nice because a percentage of the proceeds go to charity. Yes, that’s right. Myself and the other authors in the book are foregoing some of the millions we’re going to make in order to donate to a very worthy cause.

A portion of the proceeds from Uniform Behaviour is being donated to UK charity Help for Heroes. The charity was founded in order to help servicemen and women who have been wounded in current conflict. The charity does fabulous work and the founders have recently been awarded well-deserved OBEs.

As someone with good friends in the forces, one of which will be spending Christmas in Afghanistan, I couldn’t think of a better charity to link with Uniform Behaviour.

So you see, my smutty new anthology is both extremely naughty and terribly nice! Why not join in the fun? Grab yourself a copy of Uniform Behaviour from one of these listed retailers and you can be naughty and nice too! And if you’re feeling really Christmassy by now, you could also buy copies for all your friends. How nice is that?!

And since I’m now feeling nice (but don’t tell anyone!) – Merry Christmas, Everyone. xx

  1. Hi, Lucy,

    Welcome to the Grip, and thanks for your kind words about our perverted little world... ;^)

    UNIFORM BEHAVIOR sounds sizzling! Too bad you didn't favor us with an excerpt. If you have one on-line, maybe you can post a link in a comment.

    Wishing you huge success with the anthology (millions!). And I'm looking forward to hosting you over at Beyond Romance, too!

    Hugs,
    Lisabet

  3. What a great cause! The anthology sounds very good. And as an editor I must add how happy I was to see that you know to use "racked" and not "wracked". Put a smile on my face :)
