Scandalous
Episode 2 by Valerie Twombly
Website: http://www.valerietwombly.com/

Abby hadn’t been prepared when the door swung open, and Reed Evans greeted her wearing a pair of faded blue jeans and thick black hair that looked as though he’d been ridden hard. She stared into his blazing green eyes and would have melted if not for the fact he looked madder than a bull who’d just lost his nuts.

“Mr. Evans?” What a stupid question. Of course he was, but she’d suddenly lost her nerve.

“Who wants to know?” he growled.

“My name’s Abby Livingston and I’m here on business. May I come in?”

“Woman, you do realize what time it is?” At least he stepped aside, which was a positive sign.

“I am sorry.” She walked through the door, and it was then she spotted a blonde wearing a tee that was three sizes too small. Most likely the woman––if you could call her that––was the reason he looked so rough. Abby pulled back her shoulders and glided across the carpet with the grace and manners her southern grannie would be proud of. She heard the click of the door behind her and when she turned, the girl was gone. No doubt, scooted out and sent on her way with a wad of cash in hand.

Time to get to the point. “Mr. Evans. I find myself in need of a bodyguard, and I was told you’re the best.”

He tipped his head back and laughed. “Oh shit.” Rubbing his temples he glared at her and grabbed a shirt from the back of a chair and shoved his arms through the sleeves. It was a shame to cover up such male perfection, but better for their conversation.

“You should have also been told that I haven’t been in the business since…”

“Yes. Since you took a bullet to the leg. I know.” She shifted her weight. Why the hell had she decided it would be a great idea to wear heels? Sneakers and jeans were more her style, but she’d thought a short skirt and pumps would go further at showcasing her long legs than pants. She’d taken great care with her appearance before she came. After all, if Reed Evans knew she grew up on the poor side of town he’d never agree to help her.

He poured himself a cup of coffee from the carafe on the table and took a long sip. “So you know then that this is a waste of your time?”

“I was also told you never turn down a damsel in distress.” She adjusted the strap of her purse. The one that carried her life savings and she hoped would be enough for at least a down payment on his services. After that, well…she’d figure it out.

“Well darlin’, that’s where you’re wrong.”

That’s all for now! I’ll be posting Scandalous, Episode 3 tomorrow.

Something new : The Sexy Scribblers

Hello everyone! I’m very excited to be sharing “something new” with you.

One of my writer friends, Kishan Paul, is part of a writing group called the Sexy Scribblers.

Who are The Sexy Scribblers?

Sexy Scribblers

Sexy Scribblers

The Sexy Scribblers are 14 talented writers who organized a group to share their stories for FREE !They come from all over and they write in different genres. The fun and crazy part about this is, the writers are just as unaware of what’s going to happen as the reader. They have no idea what the story will be about, have no early knowledge about the characters, their trials, or how the story will end.

The authors are split into two groups and put in a specific order. The group and order change every month. Each group writes a story. The first author in the group starts it, the last one wraps it up. What happens in between is up to each individual author.

They have 3 rules to follow:

▪ No pre-planning, brainstorming, plotting, no discussion whatsoever. They write from the seat of their pants. Each episode is roughly 500 words and the story will last for 6 or 12 episodes.

▪ No changing the previous author’s work. Other than basic editing for grammatical things, the stories and each episode are untouched.

▪ No censorship of language or sexual content. You’ve been warned! The stories can get pretty HOT!

Each story will be released over the course of a week each month, starting in July.

Scandalous

Episode 1 by Chanta Rand

He smelled bacon.

He mentally struggled with whether to get up and eat or to lay comatose.

Comatose felt good.

Eating would mean dealing with his cotton-dry mouth and the insistent pounding at his hotel door.

He rolled over in his king-sized bed and cracked an eye open.
His gaze landed on a plate stacked with strips of bacon, and a mountain of scrambled eggs slathered in Tabasco sauce—just the way he liked them.

He’d eaten the same breakfast ever since he’d bought this hotel years ago. Everything was as it should be, except for the idiot at his door. Who had the balls to disturb him after a night of…hell, what had he been doing last night?

His mind barreled through his memory bank until he remembered. Oh yeah, he’d gotten shitfaced with his cousin, Willard and his brother, Bubba. He could hold his liquor better than the average man, but last night he had a good reason for getting tanked.

Grumbling, he tossed his sheets aside and slid out of the bed stark naked. He yanked on a pair of jeans he found discarded on the carpet in the bedroom of his suite. He hobbled barefoot to the front room, but he pulled up short when he saw a buxom blonde sit up on the couch and wipe the sleep from her eyes. The words, Big Tits Ain’t a Crime stretched across the front of her tight t-shirt.

Incredulous, he rasped, “What the hell are you doing here, Anita?”

She yawned. “Hope you don’t mind, Reed. I crashed on your couch. But don’t worry. You and me didn’t do nuthin’. You was too drunk.”

Thank God! Sex was so much better when he had the memories to rewind.

“I don’t have to be at work for a few hours,” she added, a flicker of hope dancing across her cherub face. “I got time for a quickie.”

Anita was a maid at his hotel. In addition to her irritating habit of using her key to get into his room, she was also engaged to Willard. Reed enjoyed a good fuck, but not at the expense of someone’s fiancé.

“Some other time,” he lied as he walked with a slight limp toward the door. The hangover was temporary. The limp wasn’t. Most everybody in town knew how he’d sustained his injury. Women thought the cane he used was sexy. There was no accounting for female reasoning. His family had run this town for three generations. Power was one hell of an aphrodisiac.

He hoped Willard wasn’t on the other side of that door with a a pair of steel knuckles. Of course, it could be the police, too. He’d been known to raise hell during a night of drinking. But, he didn’t take the cops seriously. He’d gone to middle school with half of ‘em and played varsity football with the other half.

When he opened the door, he stared into the face of a strange woman. She was graced with high cheekbones, a mane of raven hair, and a long, slender neck he would love to sink his teeth into. Her stunning sable skin was marred only by the tight scowl she gave him. It was obvious she had a bone to pick. Adam had already sacrificed a rib for men everywhere. Reed would be damned if he let this beauty take one of his.

HomeToYoueBook

At twenty-six, Katie McGregor has hit rock bottom. She’s done reckless things a good girl like her never thought she’d do. Like hiring a private investigator to spy on her sleazy boyfriend, walking out on her job without notice, and driving all night back to the one man who’d never left her thoughts.

Jake Johnson. The boy next door. The one whose glance always made her pulse race, whose touch made her knees weak — and whose words broke her heart.

Three years ago, both reeling from the death of her brother and Jake’s best friend, they’d moved apart and retreated into their careers. Now, Jake has it all, and Katie has… nothing but memories.

Katie is thrilled when Jake welcomes her into his home with open arms and the same sexy smile. But is he the same jock who didn’t do relationships and treated her like a little sister? And with so much between them, how can they overcome the hurts from the past to ignite a love that perhaps has smoldered all along?

The Lonely Endeavor By E.M. Youman

This is so true. Until you begin the journey to write, you really have no idea what is involved to create the final product of a story. And each one of us needs to find what works best for our creative process. Someone else might need to write with music blaring in the background. What works best for you? Personally I do best with playing classical music while I write. It seems to keep my critical internal editor preoccupied.

You’ve probably heard the saying that writing is a lonely endeavor. You put butt in chair and spend hours writing. At least that’s the way it is for me. Would you like to know what my writing environment is like? First off, the door has to be closed. Even if I’m at the house by myself. Don’t ask me why. A sliver of the window open, but if the wind or cars passing get too loud, shut that baby. My muse demands complete silence.

But another mantra that we always hear is that the art of writing is in the rewriting. After practicing for the last three years I can finally say I am beginning to understand what that entails. Rewriting is a combination of feedback and the dirty E for editing.

Writing Motivation from the Seasons

Author: Judy Schattner

Every writer comes to a point where the experience writer’s block. Getting through writer’s block is a matter of finding something to motivate you. You also have to shrug off the conventional ideas of how to write so that you can let your creativity flow. With the right combination of motivation and creativity, you can breeze through your writer’s block and start creating amazing pieces.

The Seasons

The changing seasons have been drawn upon many times for motivation in writing all types of pieces, from songs to poems to novels. There is a lot you can draw upon when you use the seasons as your motivation. All you need to do is open your eyes and take in the changes around you.

Spring is a time of birth and rejuvenation. From Spring you can draw upon the colorful array of flowers blooming in your garden, the sounds of the newborn animals playing and the fresh smell after a rain fall. There is plenty of motivation that you can draw from the Spring.

Summer is all about fun and sun. This season brings to mind the smell of campfires, the taste of an ice cold beverage on a hot day and the sounds of children splashing in the pool. Summer is a great motivation to write something fun and exciting.

Fall is a time of change. It is characterized by beautiful colors and the slight turn in the weather to colder temperatures. Fall is full of tasty treats and stunning, bright colors. It is usually associated with Halloween and the scary atmosphere of the holiday. It is the perfect setting for stories of change and tails of a spooky nature.

Winter is seen as the ending of the seasons. It is highlighted by crisp, white snow fall, warm fires and cozy sweaters. Winter is also a time of fun in the snow with sledding and snowball fights. Winter sets a scene that can be anything from the cheer of Christmas to the confinement of a snow storm.

When using the seasons as motivation, you need to look at the season from multiple points of view. Take in all the ways the seasons effects your senses. Try to look beyond what you normally think about the season and let yourself get creative.

Letting Creativity Soar

Once you have found a season to motivate you, it is important to not get stuck again by writing rules. You should allow yourself to just be free. Write whatever you feel without editing. You need to just let your creative thoughts flow. Do not worry about style, spelling or any rules. This makes for a great starting point where you can just get your ideas on paper.

Once you are finished you can begin to work with the ideas and develop your piece from that. This will allow you to get the ideas out there and help you to overcome the writer’s block.

Using the seasons will allow you to draw upon familiar motivation. You can walk outside and take it all in, no matter what time of year it is. You always have this motivation at hand.

Hello from Gianna

Gianna Profile Pic

 

Hello to everyone on the blogosphere! I’m new here and wanted to take a moment to greet you. *waves*

My name is Gianna Leighton. I’m a wife and mother who likes to explore fascinating worlds through stories. For the last two years I’ve been honing my writerly skills with the help of other writer friends. The writing journey has been frustrating at times, but also fun and exciting.

Just this year I was asked to join a group of ladies to write a short story for an anthology, Bowman’s Inn Book One Winter, that will be released December 21, 2014.

My story is Heels of Desire and is about Sam McCann who has an unusual obsession with shoes. In particular, heels and boots and how they’d look on women passing by. His passion for shoes has helped him build a thriving shoe shop, but it’s also why his love life is less than stellar.

The anthology is a mix of erotic to sweet stories. It’s been a great experience working with everyone and I’m excited to be able to join them for the Spring anthology.

Check out the rest of the stories and inspirational pictures at The Bowman’s Inn Facebook.

I’ve got to end this for now, but will be posting more at a later time.It’s been nice talking to you.

Enjoy your weekend!
