The Best of 2014

Rebel Ink Press has awarded me the honor of “Best of 2014”. I am so very honored and excited to be chosen for this award.

Best of RIP 2014

My relationship started with Rebel Ink Press in 2011 when they took a chance of me for an anthology submission that later published as a stand alone.

My Publication history with them has been as follows:

2011 The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp in their editor pick anthology “Once Upon A Twisted Tale”.

2012 “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” stand alone release and “Raynia’s Magic”
2013 “Beverly’s Secret“, “Phoenix Reborn“, “Dar’kind Promises” and “Dragon’s Unbound” (removed by Author in 2014 for re-writes and re-release as “Dragon Emergence” direct publication in 2015)
2014″Shifter’s Legacy” and “Emma’s New Year

 

The Series “The Amethyst Desire Collection” took shape with Vol 1 “Raynia’s Magic”,  Vol 2 “Beverly’s Secret,  Vol 3 “Phoenix Reborn”, Vol 4 “Shifter’s Legacy” and Vol 5 “Emma’s New Year”.

In particular “Beverly’s Secret” has continued to remain at the top of it’s genre classification at Amazon since it’s release in 2013, remaining in the top fifteen most of that time. All of these titles are Novellas and Novellettes. I am so pleased that RIP has continued to accept proposals and titles from me.  I love the staff at Rebel Ink Press and highly recommend them if you are looking for a publisher. I’m scoping our projects to submit to them in 2015 and look forward to our continued success.

And which are my two of my favorite covers created by Carl Franklin while he was working as a graphic artist at Rebel Ink Press? “The Galloping Ghoul” of course….and…..

Joey W. Hill Unrestrained

I am so happy to welcome Joey W. Hill to tell you more about her release “Unrestrained”. No doubt this is a must read for erotic romance readers.
Blurb:

Release Date December 3, 2013

Unrestrained

Note: This book was previously titled Letting Go; updated 6/2013.

Athena is a widow and an accomplished businesswoman. She’s the type of person who exceeds expectations in business, family–life in general. Since the death of her husband, she’s had a desire to explore submissive cravings she’s had for some time. The hitch is, Athena is known as a Mistress, because that’s the role she played to her husband.

Though she knew her submissive nature was strong enough to serve her husband as a Domme, because that’s what he needed, it’s when she meets Dale, a retired Navy SEAL, that she attempts to discover what her own submissive desires are. But letting go of that control is harder than she expected.

Fortunately, Dale is an accomplished Master who can help her accept the true nature of her submission, rather than how she’s tailored it to meet the expectations of others. But in the course of learning what letting go means, both of them will learn a bit more about the nature of love between Dominant and submissive, and how it defies all categories.

Available at fine book vendors: Amazon – Barnes & Noble –

Beyond All Boundaries

In Honor of “Blue Monday”

“Everything lost is found again in a new form in a new way. Everything hurt is healed again in a new time and a new day. She changes everything she touches and everything she touches changes.” Pagan hymn.

This isn’t the first time we’ve danced on this pathway. We thought it a blessing but perhaps it is a curse. One lifetime wasn’t enough to love you. We looked for a way to extend the blessing of our love beyond the fragile confines of one life. We made the deal before we knew the ramifications of the curse. Now we are destined to find then lose each other life after life.  Sometimes we are close to escaping  the trap. Then, fear if the curse is  broken we’ll never be together again becomes too painful to conceive. So we continue on living a half life for the brief moments when we can meet and our love renew in giddy joy. Before the inevitable cycle of pain and loss begins again. The fates intervene and leave us to  live on shattered memories of a happiness that is too pure to be contained within the scope of one lifetime. Goddess willing the next incarnation will be different and we’ll find a way to break the curse. We’ll find the courage to truly be together for one full life.

Lydia and Miranda began their love affair when druids were a children and written language consisted of stick like marks on hides. The Goddess of All made a deal with them with her own mysterious purposes in mind. Now they are blessed to find each other over and over again through countless incarnations. Find, Love, Lose becomes the cycle of their seasons, the predictable pattern of their special curse. Will this life give them the strength to break the curse and love beyond all boundaries?

Genre: Erotic Fiction or Historic Fictionalized Memoire’

Unfortunately this story would not fit within the tenants of Erotic Romance. I’ve always promised at ‘Happily Ever After’ in my stories.  I’m not quite sure this story has a happy ending. Most likely there is only one place this will ever be written.

Dar’kind Promises – Secret Three

The ancient wizardess Verucca Toadswizzler helps prepare Zelia for her mission to the Earth Dimension. Her meddling causes some startling  problems.

So, Where did I come up with the name Verucca Toadswizzler?  I’ve had several people comment on the interesting choice. Names are key in my stories. I will sometimes struggle for the right name. I’ve often written blurbs with Alphabet letters in place of names. It looks something like this blurb for an upcoming Amethyst Desire Collection story.

Bi-sexual lovers X and Y decide a little variety is the best gift they can give each other to celebrate their holiday yule. Girls just wanna have fun. All X and Y want for Christmas is a little cock. They suspect their neighbor, Z, can fit the bill in a big way. To be totally fair in how they’ll take turns with Mr. Lucky they purchase an amethyst necklace from Salynne’s Crystal’s and Thyme. Whoever has the necklace gets all their boy-toy’s attention. Then, they’ll switch. It’s only fair.

 Z’s had his eye on the girls next door and he’s just the man to fill their fantasy and more. Z’s not a boy. He doesn’t plan on being a toy and never, never played it fair. He takes the necklace as the first prize of his seductive war with the pair. He’s willing to take prisoners and plans to have both the women in his bed on his terms. He’ll consider their release for good behavior, perhaps in time for summer. 

Sometimes the names have to be carved out of the story. Other times they are right there in the front for me. I can’t always predict. Such is the case with Verucca Toadswizzler. Her name was not popping, squeaking or carving in any fashion. Then one day playing on Face Book I found an app…something like What is your wizzard name? I put in my name and the result was  — you guessed it Verucca Toadswizzler. LOL Secret revealed.

Fantasy Man Monday

Wake up call for Monday morning with these smokin hot gentlemen.

There is something to be said for the eyes. “Eyes are the windows of the soul”. So much expression lights through your lover’s eyes.

Facial hair is another complete turn on or turn off depending on the woman. Facial hair can be scratchy against a woman’s softer skin.

A man’s solid muscular shape is sensual to see and touch.

And then there is his smile. A man can’t possibly be sexy without a good sense of humor.

Summer Heat Flash Fiction Hop

Rebel Ink Press is hosting a Flash Fiction Blog Hop. Take a look and have a great introduction to new authors through their flash quick reads. Prizes as well! The party is tied together through the Rebel Ink Facebook page. So check it out there too.

The rules are write 250 words to this photo prompt.

So here is my entry! Please comment and tell me what you think. I tried to pick something that the others wouldn’t think of. LOL

FLASH 250:

The trouble about being lesbian is two-fold. First, you don’t know if a woman is available and second, most importantly, you don’t know if a woman wants to play in another girl’s kitchen. I scanned the crowd at the afternoon cocktail party. We were celebrating Jason Miles, a gifted photographer, and his art show, “A search for modern eroticism.”

The sea of people faded to monochrome, leaving the woman in a red dress and stillettos center stage. Her ebony hair danced across her heart shaped ass in waves as she moved across the room. A woman so naturally beautiful, the magic mirror would be telling Snow White she’d have to stand down to the new princess in the land, more fair than she.

My lady turned slightly to look over her shoulder. She had lush breasts in perfect matrimony with her curvy ass. Her bow shaped mouth parted so her tongue could tickle her bottom lip with a lick. A move so sexy my lips got jealous wanting their turn.

I lifted my chin in the unspoken “me?” of confident disbelief. She gave me a slow measured wink which clearly said “I’m wearing fuck-me red heels, what more do you need?”

I raced for that private library. Jason might have answered his search for modern eroticism on film. Mine was that doe eyed beauty with her lush little ass perched on the edge of an antique walnut desk, letting black satin and lace peek at me from between her thighs.

LOL.  Hope you enjoyed my little Flash Tease.

Fantasy Man Monday

I joined the fraternity of Motorcycle riders this year.  We all have fantasies of hot guys on steel don’t we?

The concept of a powerful machine between the muscular thighs of  a sexy hottie.

The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp

Hello all our Rebel Ink Blog Hoppers and welcome to my world.

I am glad you are here to share in my happiness over the release of my short “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” available at all quality e-book vendors.

First of all, isn’t that an amazing cover?  Carl Franklin the graphic artist at Rebel Ink Press is a genius.  It is a work of art worthy of framing.  I think I’ll do that!

The Galloping Ghoul story came about when Rebel Ink Press put out a call for twisted tales to come out Halloween in an anthology form.  I couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by.  I wasn’t familiar with RIP at the time but gave them a pitch that was a twist on the “Headless Horseman” story by Washington Irving.  They loved the pitch and I proceeded to write what we called for a long time as a work in progress, The Horseman.

This sexy story is an erotic male male historic romance between Nathaniel Hawkins and Ike Sandhill, a government surveyor.

BLURB:

The Galloping Ghoul rides each full moon, exacting revenge by frightening those who tormented his past. By day, he is one of the town people, Nathaniel Hawkins, an affluent entrepreneur. He identifies with Ike Sandhill, a government surveyor, and wants to protect him from the same thugs who drove Nathaniel to revenge. Ike goes to the extreme to prove to everyone how straight laced he is. He pursues Misty VonMix with the intention of marriage. Nathaniel doesn’t know how to confess his desire without driving Ike away. He comes up with a plan of seduction. Before the night is over Ike discovers things about himself he always knew, yet denied.  

Nathaniel is a powerful man and it is charming to see his attraction and hope of a love with Ike take him apart.

Excerpt:

“Massachusetts, 1790

Somewhere in the Bridgewater Triangle, old wives tell tales in hushed tones about strange lights in the sky and the Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp. They say the specter rides on the night of the full moon. They don’t know what drives him to haunt unsuspecting travelers. Those who’ve crossed his path flee in fear for their lives. If the victims know why he rides, they never say.

***

…Nathaniel drew closer in the deadly race. The gap closed but not fast enough and his heart jolted when the tired animal stumbled.

“Socrates!” Ike shouted the encouragement to his floundering steed.

Nathaniel struggled to rescue Ike from himself. He didn’t have time to calculate a fancy plan. He just needed one that would work. His options were limited but inspiration with a dose of blind luck seldom failed him. He threw back the cloak of his headless ghoul disguise, surprised the costume survived the mad race. The muskmelon head he carried to aid his full moon revelry would be forfeit. “Mother luck, do not fail me now.” Nathaniel lobbed the ball shaped fruit at Ike’s ridiculous hat  to save the life of the man he’d benefactored, secretly lusted after and suspected he loved.”

Thank you for hopping by today.  Visit the other Blog Hop participants by hopping through the Rebel Ink Press cite hot linked above.

And while you are at it, hop on over to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BookStrand or All Romance Books and pick up a copy of “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” for your summer reading pleasure.  Or if Menage’ stories are more your fare check out “Raynia’s Magic” also at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BookStrand, or All Romance Books

Blurb:

Raynia Castellano is drawn to purchase an amethyst pendant as an impulse buy but not before the clerk assures her the magic is in the woman not the necklace that seems to call to her. And given that Raynia has just left an adulterous ex-husband and has recently settled into a law practice with her oh so sexy and oh so apparently gay law partners, Chase Thompson and Peter Thornton, surely a little magic is required.

Fantasy Man Monday

Often a writer captivates her readership in ways that approach mega cult following.  That has to have a double edged sword appeal. Fans wield a powerful influence in the market place. Does a large enough fan base guarantee at NYT best seller list hit every time off the stand?

Fantasy Man Monday is dedicated to a character from J.R. Ward’s series of Black Dagger Brotherhood books.  She has truly started a landslide of readership admiration, advise and lol, sometimes disapproval that has been sustained through last count ten books with multiple story lines and character development.  Story threads spidering out into multiple books to reach their fruition.

Readers have adopted the Warden’s worlds and characters as real as they come. It is nothing short of a phenomena with huge egroup and web based chat groups branching off into podcast and chat discussions.  Readers like to devour her stories and then whoo hoo they like to talk about them, the characters and their own conspiracy theories for what will happen next and why.

I’ve heard the Black Dagger Brotherhood described as Twilite for adults, Twilite on crack. LOL. I was told these are the stories about the “real” vampires.  One thing is universal, everyone has an opinion.

The last book to release this past spring was Lover Reborn, the story of Tohrment…Tohr.

However you imagine Tohr, he is certainly fantasy man worthy. He had a great deal of heart wrenching grief and pain to travel through which captivated readers.

Maybe the appeal to the nurturer to lift his burden and spare him from further grief was the key to his devoted following.

Or maybe his complete and total hotness.  Who can say.

Have you ever read an author or series that made you want to immerse yourself in their world?  Something so powerful that you wanted it to be real and live in that place or time with those people?
