Yesterday was a great day at the same time it was terrible. My release day went as well as can be expected for an indie author trying to break into contemporary romance. Hopefully things will keep going well through the week!
The bad part was that on the way to work I got rear ended while I was sitting in traffic. Like literally sitting. I’m still mad about it. I’m fine but stiff, and the doctor says I’ve just pulled a muscle in my neck/shoulder. He also released me for the race this weekend so that’s something. They also talked me into a flu shot. My car is fine, by the way.
The other great thing that happened was that my story, Colony Crash was accepted for publication by A Million and One Magazine! It’s a short romance story with a hint of horror, and I may have fun writing a full novel for Camp NaNoWriMo. For now, please go check it out and tell me what you think!
Read it now in A Million and One Magazine!http://amillionandonemagazine.com/2019/01/15/colonycrash/
As a side note, I still have a few ARCs of At Any Cost available in exchange for a review! Comment if you’re interested!
Welcome to Week One of the 52 Week Short Story Challenge!
This challenge was created by SM Cadman, based on the advice of Ray Bradbury:
The rules are simple: write one 200-10,000 word story a week using one of the prompts provided, then post on your blog – even if it’s terrible.
The first prompts were posted Saturday and are St. Patrick’s Day themed, and I’m really excited about doing this! I’m planning on posting my stories on Tuesdays, much the way I did the Yeah Write challenges. If you want to play along, here are the prompts for this week!
“Come on, it’s only one drink.”
“Can you just tell me what exit I’m supposed to be taking?” According to his GPS, Ellis had driven off the side of the world ten minutes ago and trying to get help from the extremely intoxicated woman in the passenger seat was almost impossible. In addition to being nearly incoherent, she also wouldn’t stop flirting with him. Poorly.

I haven’t posted on here in a while, I know, but that’s because not much has been going on. I’ve started the outline for a new book and finally finished the character sheets I’ve been working on but nothing terribly interesting. I had no idea how long publishing takes but I’m sure it’ll be worth it in the end. The next step is a cover reveal so please look forward to that!
As a thank you for reading and your patience, I’d like to share a sexy story with you! Unlike the Christmas story, this one is definitely for adults and is not work safe, so exercise caution around kids and your boss (unless they’re into it!). And whether you have a partner or not, I hope it inspires you to get up to some Valentine’s mischief of your own!
…And Juliet the Sun
It’s been a little while since I posted but I bring with me a little Christmas gift, so I hope you’ll forgive me! It’s a short little story about a detective and a Christmas tree, and it introduces a couple of characters from my upcoming novel, The Detective’s Brother from Sinnful eBooks. I hope you like it and that it gets you excited to read more of my work.
I hope to post more short stories here every now and then. They’ll likely be one-offs of ten pages or less, perfect for enjoying on your lunch break or before bed. Fair warning, though, some of them might be a little steamy. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know when they’re NSFW! In the meantime…
The Christmas Tree
Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
