I'm fairly new to writing and publishing, but BDSM has been at the core of my being for as long as I've been aware. My pen-name is Sensei. The word is of Japanese origin, though I don't have any cultural or familial connections of that sort. Its literal meaning is simply an elder, but it has come to have a meaning more akin to a teacher or a coach (it is often used in martial arts dojos as a title for an instructor). For me, it's important that a dominant be a figure of leadership for his submissive. It is in that leadership that the dom truly earns the service the submissive supplies.
My writing is a way for me to explore ideas rooted in dominance and submission. I hope that you enjoy my work.
An anthology of 26 spanking stories... one for each letter of the alphabet. Each alphabet letter starts the name of the woman (or in some cases, women) being spanked. Each story is unique and different from all of the others.
This story explores the beginnings of a master/slave relationship. It's a love story, with a kinky difference. It's the story of a journey of discovery for a new submissive. Along the way she learns that love and romance indeed can be found in submission.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SOME MINOR SPOILERS. I'm not going to give away everything, but I can't say what I want about the work without starting out this review with that warning.
The writing was good overall, and the plot flowed well. One of the traps in erotica is forcing the characters into the situations where they wind up having sex the way the author wants, and it's a trap that this author completely eluded - there were no decisions the characters made that were unlikely enough to startle the reader. That's definitely a plus here.
I'm taking off two "half stars" from full marks for the two things that I didn't completely appreciate. And here's where the spoilers start.
Firstly, there's a strap-on involved, and the character wearing the strap-on is able to have pleasure and achieve orgasm while wearing it, as if it was a real penis. Now, I've got no experience with strap-ons, but it's impossible for me to understand how someone could reasonably react that way. I feel like either the author should have taken some pains to explain better how that was possible, or make change the dynamic of the scene.
Secondly, the last page of the work is a coda out of left field. It's a bit like the movie "From Dusk 'Till Dawn." The movie takes a jarring, abrupt left turn half way through. The jarring, abrupt left turn this book takes at the end was certainly a surprise, but it wasn't at all what one would expect having read the preview, description, tags... It felt completely artificial, as if the author had suddenly forgotten that she wanted the characters to end up the way they do. Perhaps it is a set-up for a sequel. I dunno, but the sequel would have rather a different genre choice, if it's going to be honestly marked.

What man wouldn't want this kind of power?
The only criticism is that there's no counterbalance to the power of the ring. The plot does lead to the inevitable conclusion given a lack of counterbalance, but I would have liked to have seen something along the lines of a Twilight Zone twist to give the protagonist his comeuppance. Still, that minor quibble aside, the story is believable, given you can accept the premise, and the erotic elements are amazingly hot.
