Six Sentence Sunday- 2

I'm looking forward to April 19th, that is the tentative release date for Maggie's Abduction from Siren. In celebration of that release, the first for me, I've selected my 6 sentences from that unedited manuscript. Enjoy!

“Spread your thighs, little human.”
            Maggie moaned and did as directed, spreading her legs to accommodate his hips. He was cradled intimately between her thighs, resting against her mound. He reached down and undid his pants, pushing them down enough for his cock to come free. Hot flesh nestled in her wet folds. She wanted him to move, to rub his hard shaft against her.

Characters have sabotaged my plan... again

I had a beautiful plan for this month. Finish Catch of the Day, work on a few shorter stories before starting the second installment featuring Willie. Well, that plan all went to hell when Seth and Emily piped up inside my noggin. So, instead of working on anything I already had going I am powering through a shifter novel about a kickass female wolf who gets saddled with a weak male who doesn't even like his wolf. I don't mind the interruption but someone needs to teach these people that they need to be patient and wait their turn. Poor Adam hasn't even seen any action in months and he was supposed to be finished by now.

In celebration of Seth and Emily pushing their way to the front of the line, here is a little (unedited) piece of Alpha in Hiding.

She stared at him and barely kept from baring her teeth. He was unshaven, unshowered, disheveled. She glanced up and down his frame and couldn’t find one redeeming feature. His dark hair was shorn close to his head. Glasses perched on his nose. Glasses, on a shifter. That was almost unheard of. He had thrown on a wrinkled concert t-shirt that was way too big for his slender frame. Sweatpants hung low off his hips. She swept her eyes back up and wrinkled her nose at what she saw. The whole package wasn’t impressive at all. Great. That would make her job so much easier… NOT.

Writing process

I love to find out how others write, what their process is, when they start and finish, etc. Some are planners spending time outlining and getting all their ducks in a row before putting a single word to paper. Some are free spirits just letting the story flow from them without any real planning. Then, there are those that sit between the two extremes doing a little planning and some flying-by-their-pants. 

I tend to be one of the middle folks. I like to get some ideas on paper, maybe a general flow of the story, how I see it ending, etc. Then, once I am writing the characters can take the story anyway they want if needed. Sometimes when I fight the characters the story stalls and then they remind me that the story really is THEIRS and not mine.

At the moment I sneak as much time to write as I can, but for those that have deadlines and products they have to get done I wonder if they force themselves to be more of a planner.

Valentine Master made the grade

So, just got the email. Valentine Master is going to be published by Ellora's Cave. How awesome is that?! Hey, it was a rhetorical question, I know how awesome that is. This makes three stories out there in pre-published land for me. I am so excited I can barely type.

Valentine Master is a hot, steamy BDSM short story. It originally was written as an anniversary piece, but it struck me as I was going back through it that it worked better as a Valentine's Day story. The characters are a normal married couple that take the time to have an adventure to satisfy the wife's curiosity and burgeoning need to submit.

Anyway, wanted to share the good news and my excitement about the whole thing. I will do a six sentence Sunday on this one a little later once I have an estimated release date.

Fabulous Friday

Gotta love getting good news when you are down and out. My daughters and I have been battling the flu for days, although it feels like weeks. Just checked email and Siren is picking up Half in Love (aka Willie's story). YEAH! I am so excited. So, Willie will get air time in May. My spring is going to be busy with Maggie's Abduction in April and now Willie's gig in May.

Anyway, happy Friday everyone. I don't like being sick, but at least there is something cool to look forward to once I can lift my head without sweating.

Six Sentence Sunday- 1

Right now I am 30,000 words into a menage story set in Montana. Erin finds herself on vacation and between two gorgeous men who own a lodge. Her broken heart brought her there, but they will try to mend it. The six sentences I chose for this week are from the first time she meets Jared, Mr. Hunky-Pants #1.

She watched the muscles of his butt flex and move under the black denim of his jeans. Her fingers twitched with the need to stroke that meaty flesh, to squeeze it and feel exactly how well his muscles were defined. She jerked her eyes up at his chuckle.
            “Stop oogling my ass, babe. We’ve got a long drive ahead of us and no matter how adorable you are when you’re flushed I really would like to get on the rode.” With a grin he turned and strode off towards the exits.

I hope you enjoy. Next week I will introduce Brent, the broody man in this destined triad.

Finally... Willie is on her way

I kidnapped myself today in hopes of getting at least one of my WIP's done. Willie's story has been the thorn in my foot, pain in my side, rock in my shoe... you get the idea. I FINALLY finished editing her mess and sent it off for review. *fingers crossed* Let's hope someone likes her. She's a spunky one, and really full of it sometimes. Hmmm, much like myself I guess.

Anyway, celebrate with me as I open a bottle of wine and drink to my halfie character, Willie.
