Slick as Ides news

Today was a big day. The ARCs all went out, and I'm happy to announce that this story that was once at 55K words, and an 11 chapter fan fic, is now a full blown, 104K word story at 25 chapters long.

But, wait! There's more!

I'm writing a sequel called Catching Vapor.

I kind of had the title for a sequel in my head for months now, but didn't have a full plot so wasn't necessarily planning on making it a series. But about a week or two ago (sorry, I have an awful memory at times) I was hit with all the missing gaps, and a full plot exploded into my brain. A messy place to be. So I started doing the research I needed, and it's been fascinating. It also spawned a spin off. A fan fic called MERIT Man. I don't know if this happens to other authors or not, but I find out way more info than I'll ever need when I do the necessary research, and it has no where to go. I wind up taking the excess, turning it into another story of its own and use it as a warm up exercise for the real story I'm planning on writing.

That's probably more than you wanted to know, but just know that Catching Vapor has a planned release date for Valentine's Day, 2014, because, hey, what says I love you more than a hot-ass thief, stealing your panties, passing you a bottle of hand sanitizer and then whispering nothing but filth in your ear after he ties you up when you weren't looking?

It's all kinds of romantic, kind of like sex in a car. It sounds uncomfortable, but sometimes you just gotta do it because it's hotter than hell, kind of like Nick.

I'll keep you updated as we go along, and over the next 3 weeks I'll be sharing teasers for the upcoming release of Slick as Ides.

ANNOUNCEMENT: publishing date changes

After considering the publishing dates for my next two novels, it's become apparent to me they need to be swapped out for their dates for various reasons.

So, here's the updated publishing scheduled:

Slick as Ides: September 20th, 2013

Knots: October 18th, 2013

This shouldn't impact the schedule for the rest of my stories I plan to publish in the near future.

Slick as Ides published version is now completed

Slick as Ides is done, my lovely friends. I can't believe it. It took me longer than I thought, but over the last 3 days, this story went from 55K words to 93K. That means I'll get carpal tunnels in about 24 hours from writing 38K words in that amount of time. If my kids were back in school, I probably would've been done sooner, but it's okay. I'll give myself a B- on this effort. I'm just glad it's done, and happy with the finished story.

It has a planned release date of October 18th. In the meantime, here's a teaser from the new chapter 1 (hasn't been through edits yet, so please forgive any typos):

I wander back to my desk, and the minute I log into my favorite chat group, I see that name “Vapor,” and I’m tingling and breathless.
God, he’s so hot with the shit he gets up to. He knows exactly what to do to get me going.

Vapor: You there, Ides?

The monitor blinks at me.

“Yeah, I am, you slimy bastard.” I grin and type out a different reply though. Ides: What’s up? Invent anything today?

Vapor: Yep. Invented a way into your wet panties. Wanna come over and check it out, make sure it works correctly?

I bark a deep, biting laugh. “Uh, no. Not happening.” Ides: Sure. I’ll be right over . . .

Vapor: See, I knew you liked me.

Ides: Like is not an issue. It’s an issue of trust.

Vapor: You can trust me. Have I done anything to warrant mistrust?

Ides: Yeah, you have.

Vapor: Such as?

Ides: You seem to know too much about me. How is that possible? No one knows who I am.

Vapor: Did my research, sweetheart. You’re all over the web, whether you know it or not. I know your signature when I see it, woman.

Ides: Right there—the fact you even know my gender is disconcerting.

Vapor: I’ve been tracking you down for months now. Do you know how hard it was to get into this elite hacker chat group? I swear they patted down my balls and made me turn my head and cough before they’d even let me in. Do they think I’ll hunt you down?

Ides: Would you? I swallow, and my pussy throbs. God, I wish he would.

Vapor: For you? I might. I want you, and I think you know I touch myself while I fantasize about you. Can’t you tell I’m doing it right now?

“Pervert,” I whisper and grin wider.

Vapor: I’ve got a fucking hard on about a mile long for you. I swear I practically squirt on my screen each time I chat with you. Want me to film it next time and send it to you? All I’ll need is your email address, hon.

Ides: Nice try. I’m not on here to get hit on or for free porn.

The Age of Edward contest

Normally I don't enter contests. Most of the time I feel like they're a popularity contest and I don't write for that reason. I write because I love it and have something I want to share.

But I couldn't resist this one since it's historical erotica--my cup of yummy tea, baby. It's already written, and it's out to my editors. The contest starts on August 20th, so I'm hoping you'll get out and vote. Since it's anonymous, I can't share with you which one will be mine, and I can't share any teasers, but I really do hope you'll check it out and try to figure out which one is mine:

Sleeves Book Cover Reveal

I am so excited to share my book cover for Sleeves, published in 8 days!

I'm also thrilled to tell you that the cover for Knots is done as well and the ARCs will be out very soon, along with another cover reveal.

This cover was created by Mayhem Cover Creations:

Knots final mini teaser chapter 17

*sniffs* So sad, but that's the last teaser until this story's published at the end of the month. Looking forward to the release and sharing this love story with you...

Mark, Ashlen, and Jeanie from Chapter 17:

“I want into the playroom!” Ashlen hopped at Mark’s feet.

Jeanie’s eyes widened for a moment and her breath caught.

“Toys, please!” Ashlen’s sweet voice carried well in the kitchen. “I want into the room.”

Sleeves final mini teaser for chapter 17

This is it folks. The final teaser since this is the last chapter, and not too much longer before this story's published and in your hands. ;D Thanks for reading the teasers...

Kel and Casey from Chapter 17:

“Please, God . . . Can’t take it,” she cried out, her hands clawing at the bars.

“Wish you’d stayed outside the cage yet?” He blew across her fully erect nipple, then he distended it by tugging on it with his lips, wrapped over his teeth.

“Ahhhhhhhh shit!” Her voice escalated the more he tugged on it.

He let it go and then brushed his stubbled cheek across it, abrading it. Not enough to hurt her, but enough to stimulate it further.

So much movement from the audience from that gesture.

He was tempted to glance out in the low-lit room, but what was the point?

None of those bitches had caught his attention like this one had.

“Need to douse you before I come on you,” he said, stroking himself.

“Here!” someone called out, their hand jutting through the bars with a bottle of wine.

His long arm reached out and he leaned to the side. “Thanks,” he said, smiling.

“Oh Christ!” she mewled when the cold bottle rolled across her pubic pad.

“This is for me, not you, bitch. I need it cold so your skin won’t scald me.”

“You’ll fuck me, then?” Her lips twitched into a sort of smile, sort of pained expression.

“Maybe if you ride the bottle for me, then I’ll consider it.”

Without a second’s hesitation, he had the butt of the bottle between her legs, and though her breath hitched several times at the coldness of it, she coated it with her lubrication.

His heart raced, watching this dirty sight.

Knots mini teaser chapter 16

Mark and Jeanie from Chapter 16:

“You realize what this means?”

“Yes, I do.”

“And you are fine with calling me Master now, rather than Sir?”

Sleeves mini teaser chapter 16

Kel and Casey from Chapter 16:

His hands were velvet as they warmed her skin.

“Is this hurting you?” she asked.

“A little—but I don’t care.” His eyes were focused on his hands and where he was touching her with a gentleness that belied his devotion to her. “It’s not gonna stop me.”
