Late Bloomer

Many of you are probably familiar with Erica Scott. For those who aren't, get familiar! You can read Erica's blog here to follow her day to day hilarity, rants, and descriptions of lots of great spankings. A few months back, I bought and read her book "What Happens To Naughty Girls?" which I posted about here. It is a collection of spanking stories, mostly fiction, all written with the classic Erica wit that her readers have come to know and love. You can check it out for yourself here.

Fortunately for me and all her other readers, she now has a second book out. I was eagerly awaiting it's release after following her updates about it for the past few months. "Late Bloomer" by Erica Scott is a biography. Some may be familiar with "the scene" persona that is Erica Scott but this book delves much deeper than that. It allows us to follow her on her journey throughout life, from a sometimes dark childhood all the way up to emerging as a spanko and beyond.

It is poignantly written and engrosses one into her story. I could hardly put it down. It isn't all sunshine and rainbows, mind you. There were parts of it that brought tears to my eyes but others still that had me laughing out loud. The personality and wit she is known for comes through clearly as she weaves the story together. I only wish that it'd come out a few years ago so I could've read it when I was emerging into this lifestyle. Many parts of it just had me nodding and saying "Yes!" It is relatable, honest, raw, human.

Erica and Richard Windsor shot a funny promo video for her book that you can watch here. My reviewing skills may be a bit lacking but don't let that deter you, get a copy here and find out what all the buzz is about!

Hi, Lea! I'm currently in the middle of reading Erica's new book and I can't put it down, either. As you said, she brings out a wide array of emotions and connections.

Lea -- I think you did too! Thank you so much for this. I'm glad my book is resonating with good people like you. :-) I worried a bit about how it would be accepted, so this kind of reaction is gratifying indeed.
