I’m finally writing a blog!! Well, at least, I’m writing some NON-sexual blogs, for now anyways, haha. The erotica blogs will come later, no pun intended... or maybe I did. Who knows with me.
Welcome! If you’re new here, don’t worry, so am I! I am totally new to the world of “normal” blogging, but it has been something I have wanted to do for a long time now, so here goes!
And if you are not new to blogging, go easy on me, will ya? I’m a first timer 😉 I’ll learn as I go, as I do pretty much everything else in my life!
If you’re really, really new here, let me give you a little brief history on Miss Lady Mack, and how I got here and why I am writing in the first place.
My real name is actually Carissa McIntyre, and I am a mother of 3. I am also an erotica author, but I like to think that there’s a whole lot more to me that that.
I spent the better part of my adult life in a few rough relationships, bounced around from job to business, dabbled into online sales, had some children, and just sort of floated through life.
Things got pretty tough about a year and a half ago, and my life that I was floating through, began to fall apart. I lost everything, including most of myself, and I ended up in a homeless woman’s shelter, single and alone with 4 children, one who wasn’t even mine.
At that point, I truly felt like I had nothing, and I was at the bottom, a total failure. But a few months before all this happened, I had started writing again.
As a young adult, I started writing erotica for fun. I have always written, always wanted to be a writer, and writing is something that I have always been passionate about, for as long as I can remember, basically, my entire life.
But when I hit a dry spell once, (not figuratively, get your heads out of the gutter, haha) I started writing erotica for fun, and soon realized I was really good at it.
I wrote countless short erotica stories, and even tried my hand at a novel, a hot kidnapping story that I ended up tucking away into a box of paperwork and forgetting all about. From there, I wrote some erotica blogs as well, and had a ton of fun with it, but I never took it seriously, or saw anything coming from it, so I ended up leaving it alone.
Fast forward to that last Christmas, Christmas 2017 as my life was in shambles, and I was so very depressed, with no idea what was lying ahead. Something about the 50 shades series blowing up all over TV and movies and bookstores really hit home for me though, and I realized, I had already done that, and with a little work, I could do it again, and maybe, just maybe, that could change things for me.
So, I wrote my first novel, edited it myself, photographed my friend in the hallway of my house, photoshopped it into a cover with the help of another friend, and self-published my first erotica novel, pretty much single handedly, while I was packing my life away into little boxes and trying to figure out a plan for my future, and what I was going to do with my children and myself.
I promoted it at night, online, in my spare time, on facebook and Instagram, while I was crying myself to sleep at night, scare shitless of my future.
And you know what? That damn book started to sell.
I didn’t have anything else to lose, so I kept going. I put together a novel of short erotica stories while I was living in the shelter, and published that book in the summer, right after my kids and I moved into our new place.
My books sold enough to buy milk, bread, put gas in my van and help put a new roof over our heads.
It was the scariest, mind numbing, thrilling moment of my life, and I have never looked back.
From that moment on, I started to find myself again. I went through hypnotherapy, hypnosis, therapy, and started to love myself again, and find my self-worth.
I was contacted by some amazing agencies that allowed me to speak about my story and help encourage and inspire others to leave bad situations, take control and change their life.
I still write erotica, that’s pretty much all I do for work these days, but this life has opened so many other doors for me and given me that much more purpose. Since March 2017 I have published 4 novels, 1 short story, been published in one other authors work, been featured in the local newspaper, spoke with the rotary club, and made so many, many amazing connections and friends. I have opened a business around my novels, Lady Mack Publishing, I have built an online presence, I have redone ALL my novels, found a professional model and photographer, and realized, there are no limits to what I can accomplish.
I am always looking for new ways to connect with my readers, to share my story, to share other people’s stories, to inspire, and to motivate, as well as to share my love for erotica, for storytelling, for short stories, for readers, for writers, hell, my passion for life.
This blog is just the beginning, and one of many. I plan to write more about life, some short eroticas, some funny commentaries from past dating life, and I also plan to feature other bloggers, maybe YOU!
Do you have an inspiring story to tell? Are you an aspiring writer? Do you have a poem you want the world to see? Do you have some funny dating stories, sexual experiences, or lifestyle changes you want to share with us? Then I want to hear from you.
Help me make this as successful as possible. Help me show others that sexual creativity is healthy, fun, and natural. Sexual exploration is key to a healthy life. But so is happiness, controlling your destiny and taking charge of the things that you want.
So today, go do that. Take control. Change something that bothers you. Do something that scares you. Write something new. Share a story with someone. Open yourself up to life and live a little.
And share your story with the world!!
Happy Weekend friends!! Thanks for reading!!
Lady Mack, your favorite erotica author 😉
