Self/Discipline: How Spanking Changed My Life

I'm not talking about me because those of you who visit here have a pretty good idea of the part spanking has played in my life over the years both at work and home as the two often overlap. No, I'm talking about the author Andrew Cameron who is based in London and works in the arts sector and has won several prizes for his written works. His first foray into spanking is his memoir, titled as per the heading, and it's based on his own true life experiences from seeing his first spanking at school up to the present, a quarter-century as a spanking addict.

"Vividly detailed, occasionally explicit, often funny and always true, Andrew Cameron's exceptionally written SELF/DISCIPLINE is the thinking person's book about corporal punishment."

What's the connection to me? Well you know I always like to find new and interesting works in the spanking arena, be it new blogs, press stories, books or tumblrs, but on this occasion it kind of found me. You see a friend of Andrew's bought one of my canes as a present for him and she gave me some feedback after a few days to say he was delighted with it, so we got chatting and Andrew has now been in touch direct and is completely open and happy for me to mention him and he's even going to send me copy of his book! (hey there are perks to this job:)).

So I shall be returning to this topic in the coming weeks when I've had chance to read it but I would say, from the snippets available on Blushing Books and Amazon, and having chatted with Andrew and his friend, it's likely to be an entertaining read.

Have a fun weekend.

It will be very interesting to read what he has to say. You do get nice perks in your work.

This is awesome Ronnie, wonderful perk of the job :)

Hi Ronnie!:) That's really cool! I'll check out his book. Must be fun to note who the canes go out to, in general, as well. You and P have a great weekend. Many hugs,

<3 Katie

It will be nice getting a man's perspective. So glad he enjoyed your cane and hope he is able to drum up business for your endeavor. Have a great weekend.

This is so awesome, I will have to check out his book. I have only kinda known some people that are paddles were sold to but I have never met anyone in person.

Ella said...

This is a wonderful discovery for you and now for us as well. As Sunny said, I will enjoy hearing another point of view. It is also a feather in your cap to have him be impressed with the cane. You never know. This could open some doors for you, as well!

Hugs Across the Pond,
