I confess, I’m a horrible procrastinator. If I have a deadline, I’ll do most of a job ahead, and save the last bit to do as the clock is ticking off the deadline. This project was no different. TIGHT SPACES has been finished for a couple of weeks, and the release date decided. But did I upload it early? Nope! Waited until 36 hrs before the intended release. And, even though it was finished, I still added part of a scene Thursday evening, right before uploading. I’d hoped it would go live this morning, but it didn’t until mid-afternoon. But, it’s available now!! Buy TIGHT SPACES A lonely woman goes dancing with friends to kick the Bad Breakup Anniversary Blues. Her fantasy-man is willing to help, until her lowlife ex ambushes him. With the first anniversary of the messy break up of a long-term relationship bearing down, Amy has the … Continue reading →
Last week I announced that TIGHT SPACES was finished. That ended up changing as I edited the final scene and wasn’t satisfied with it, but it didn’t take long to rewrite the scene so that it fit the story better. So, it is, indeed, finished. All but one thing. TIGHT SPACES NEEDS YOU! There’s only one problem left. My cover artist, Timothy White (keep watching here for more on him) gave me two versions of the cover to choose from. I LOVE them BOTH! Every time I think I’ve decided definitely which one to use, I end up changing my mind. So, with time running out, I need help deciding. That’s where YOU come in. Tomorrow, Sept 3, I’ll reveal both versions of the cover. I need YOU to tell me which version you like best, and help me decide which to use! I’ll announce the decision on Friday, Sept … Continue reading →
Hi, all. This week’s Six is from Tight Spaces again. It’s FINISHED at last! Keep an eye on the Double Dare Page - I’ll reveal the cover and announce the expected release date SOON! For now, this will have to do This snippet is from early in the novella, as Amy is going into the Double Dare Club. The doorman is selecting his evening’s prospects from among the female clientele as they enter the club. “That’s an awfully nice dress for a dump like this, Sweetheart.” She licked her lips before answering, causing heat to flare in his eyes. “It’s my favorite, so I decided what the hell.” “If you get tired of the jerks inside, come on back out and keep me company a while. I know how to treat a lady.” His voice, rumbly and intimate, promised a good time. Come back next week, for Six Sentences from the final … Continue reading →
This week’s Six is from Tight Spaces, my Erotic Contemporary Romance Novella, Book One in my new series, The Double Dare Club. I’m finally closing in on The End for this one! I only have the final scene left to write and edit, so just a couple hours work, and I can type “The End”. In this snippet, Amy and Jesse have left a nasty confrontation with Amy’s Ex that nearly tanked their lovely evening. With the rest of the night salvaged, Jesse wants revenge, so he searches out a member of the Double Dare Club Security. “Sounds like the guy. Listen, Ray, he’s been hassling my friend here. Said some stuff that made her feel really bad. Is there any way you could make sure she doesn’t have to deal with him anymore tonight? Until we leave here, at least.” Jesse slipped the bouncer a bill, concealing the … Continue reading →
This week’s Six Sunday is from the same Erotic Romance Novella the last couple have been from. Now, last week, the plan was that this story’s title would be “Dare To Stare”. Since then, during edits, the focus of the story has changed, and the entire concept evolved. This story has become the foundation of a series of contemporary Erotic Romances. The series, titled The Double Dare Club, is based on the nightclub introduced in this story, the Double Dare. For the series, all the couples will be connected in some way to the Double Dare – one might work there, they might meet there, or meet in a fender-bender in the street out front. Because of the change in focus for the current story, “Dare To Stare” no longer fits as the title. The new title, referring to the smex-in-the-closet scene, and other incidents, is Tight Spaces. The following … Continue reading →
Last week I posted Six Sentences from my Work In Progress, an untitled erotic contemporary romance, and asked if anyone had ideas for a title. A couple of you had wonderful suggestions. Well, now it has a title, thanks to my friend and critique partner, Azure Boone. Having the advantage of reading a major scene, she suggested “Dare To Stare”, because of the scene where the hero catches the heroine staring at him. Instead of looking away, she continues to stare, bold as brass. So, Dare To Stare it is. Amy followed her gaze and recognized Jessie’s powerful body nearing the table. Once more, his stride reminded her of a big cat stalking prey. A little shiver danced across her skin with the realization that she was the prey. The tip of her tongue slid across her lower lip, anticipating his taste. Jessie paused, his hot gaze melting her. Her anger faded … Continue reading →
OK, so you all know my friend, Author Jennifer James, right? I’ve mentioned her crazy-hot new book, Love Kinection, a time or two. Well, TOMORROW’s The Big Day! Love Kinection Release Day: July 31, 2012!! Now, seriously, give yourself a well-deserved treat. You really want to read this one. The Blurb: Love, romance, hearts, flowers, cupid…. Rubbish. Abby Fine still hasn’t gotten over the pain of a year-old betrayal and plans to spend this Valentine’s Day drowning her sorrows with a ménage of men named Ben, Jerry, and Riesling. Her plans are diverted when she drops and breaks her new iPhone and gives in to a momentary hormone surge, agreeing to let office hottie and tech god Tom Walker squirm his way into her condo to fix it. Tom shows up with his Xbox, spicy Chinese food, and a habit of stealing kisses every time she lets her guard down. Can a … Continue reading →
I’ve been away from Six Sentence Sunday for a while, but it’s time I get back to it. This Six is from a contemporary erotic romance novella I’m working on. The thing really needs a title, and fast, so if you have any suggestions, leave a comment! And be sure to stop by the Sunday Six blog to see a list of participants so you can check out their work, too! She’d never felt that way before, and refused to examine it, for fear of breaking the spell. Sex with Jessie was a whole new experience, too, especially the sense of contentment that followed. Normally, she would be restless, vaguely uncomfortable, needing something to do. Leaning there against Jessie’s chest, with his breath stirring her hair and his fingers absently stroking her shoulder while his voice slid around her in an almost tactile way felt indescribably right. What would it be … Continue reading →
Recently, my friends and critique partners, Azure Boone and Jennifer James, and I decided to to start a group blog. The general idea was for it to be a place where we could jointly promote our work, talk about things important to us, things we find funny, and just generally be a little silly. And so, the idea for Love Scenes & Wet Dreams, a.k.a. LSWD, was born. We have several ideas for the blog, some of which will take a while to implement. For now, we’ll all incredibly busy, between writing and raising our families, and we don’t have as much time to devote to it as we’d like. So, we’re concentrating on the basics, getting everything situated the way we’d like and building content. When we have time to catch our breath, we’ll switch up the focus to getting some different things going. Right now, Azure has up a … Continue reading →
