How About a #Freebie?

I realized this morning I wasn’t going to do a Wednesday post this week because it’s already Thursday. Doh! That MLK day really screwed with my head. I’ve been wonky all week (more wonky than usual, I should say).

The newsletter signup and freebie are a go, after much agony from Calibre for some reason I still haven’t figured out. So, make my pain worthwhile and use this link to sign up for your free e-copy of “The Ferryman Cometh.”

I won’t spam you, I swear on all that is good and holy. I’ll only send the rare newsletter to let you know when I have something new coming out. Promise. Realistically, I can barely make myself blog, so that should give you an accurate sense of how often I’ll compose newsletters.

Okay, I’ve spent entirely too long in front of a computer today. I’m going to go pour a glass of wine and make some freakin’ meatloaf so kids can tell me it’s yucky in an hour because that’s the kind of day it’s been.

XOXO,

Kimber

 

 

 


What’s Up Wednesday

Hey, all! It occurred to me on Monday that I should come up with a clever little name for one day of the week and blog religiously on that day. What’s Up Wednesday fit the bill, but it was Monday, so damn. Luckily I’m uber-slow and got hung up on a billion other tasks. I blinked and it’s Wednesday!  Like magic, baby!

As an aside, I did a search for What’s Up Wednesday and found this YA author had a weekly hop with the title a few years back. Seems to be defunct, but I’ll give her full credit, especially since she has some swell blog post ideas I’ll probably borrow at some point.

So, what have I been up to? Seems a legit topic to begin. For one, I’ve been working on starting a newsletter and polishing up a short story I plan to dangle in front of your clicking fingers to make you sign up, so get ready for that. It’s the only way to get your hands on my tale, “The Ferryman Cometh,” a dark paranormal erotic MMM, so a tad off my beaten path with that extra M. 😉 I’ll let you know when that’s ready to e-ship, likely by next Wednesday if not sooner.

I’m self-editing “Balancing Act” right this second. I’m about 2/3 done and then I’ll get it to beta readers. It’s a tough edit because I am striving to keep it just under 40,000 words so it doesn’t jump to the next price point with my publisher. At the moment, I have maybe 300 words of wiggle room, so I’m essentially fucked, but still gonna give it my all. The problem is, when I’m writing dialog fast, I often omit the tags and then come in later and add a bit of meat to make it clear who’s speaking. Hopefully I won’t hit any major rough patches in the home stretch that will require, well, more words. 😛

Okay, that’s it for now. Stay tuned for more newsletter info coming shortly, and more general blogging on Wednesday. Heck, maybe I’ll go do some crunches while I’m on my self-improvement kick.

Slippery When Wet or Too #Sexy for my Blog or The Art of Writing Male/Male Anal

Did you sing that horrible song when you read the title?  A small, malicious part of me hopes so. >:-) Oh! I didn’t mean anything Bon Jovi, although this is a musical entry, I must say. Anyway, allow me to serenade you while we go at it, here.

The Slippery When Wet Blog Hop begins today, and I am ill-prepared. Or maybe too prepared. Anyway, I have a blog post I penned a while back, which seemed too risqué to send to other places as a guest blog, but is just right tonight after realizing I have two hours to get this sweetheart posted. Enter: The Art of Writing Male/Male Anal.

The Art of Writing M/M Anal

This won’t be comprehensive, but how about the basics for virgin author’s everywhere who want to delve into the great “Do Not Enter?” Sometimes it’s not just an exit, ladies and gentleman, but there are a couple of things we’re going to need in order to get this bird off the ground. So wave your magic pen and produce these magical items:

1.         Condom.  This baby gets top billing for most smut peddlers the world over. Publishing houses, generally speaking, are pretty firm on the “No Creampie” rule. That’s not to say you can’t sneak them in once in a while, especially in short stories which are more likely to fall into the erotica without romance or stupid people having risky sex categories (read: one seat closer to the almighty porn throne).  I wrote a short for Shane Allison’s Bad Boy anthology with Cleis Press (which should be out soon, actually) and had a bank robber getting it on with a hostage right after the hold up. Needless to say, there were no condoms available at the hideout in the woods. Obviously plot factors into your safe sex decision.

Also, if your MCs are in a serious, committed relationship, and you’ve laid that on the line—maybe even with a side note on VD testing (archaic term that is so Pretty in Pink it makes me smile–no, wait, I think that was Sixteen Candles)—you can go ahead and get really nasty. But—general rule of thumb—have a rubber in someone’s pocket/drawer/under the seat of their car/in the little booze container around their faithful St. Barnard’s neck.  Whatever. Non-human exceptions exist as well.  Aliens don’t carry AIDS and all you need is a rabies shot to get it on with a wolf shifter.

2.         Lube. This runs alongside the condom. For one, rubbers—even if they say lubricated—are going to make things, shall we say, rougher, than skin on skin. Also, chicks have the built-in lube. That’s right, we can make our own, so in vaginal sex no one gets bent out of shape if a bottle of K-Y isn’t sitting on your fictional dresser. But M/M? The human ass needs a helping hand (full of spit or jelly).  Spit isn’t the best, but it’s always available unless they are trapped in the Sahara, in which case, I doubt they’re feeling too amorous.

3.         A little foreplay. Even if you’ve got the rubber on your big burly top, he’s squirted an entire bottle of love-lotion on his long-stocking, and his pretty boyfriend is face-down-ass-up, it isn’t nice to just stick it in without a little preamble.  Rimming works, but if your guys aren’t so inclined, a gradual finger work-up is really the kinder, gentler thing to do than insta-penetration.

4.         Mention of the prostate.  No, it isn’t a prostrate like your mother-in-law calls it.  That means lying down with your face smashed into a pillow, which may well be the case with your sexy little bottom who happens to be getting his prostate hammered by his bear.  Not necessarily something you MUST mention, but seems to be a huge factor in the pleasure experience for the guy getting fucked.  I don’t know.  I don’t have one myself, and frankly I feel robbed. I’m going to go write my congressman right now.

5.         The grand finale!  I don’t need to tell you how to do this, really. The world is your orgasm oyster.  Have a fire hose showdown if you like.  One thing to remember is that if the guy on bottom gets off first, I hear tell having a big dick in his ass for an extended time after can be uncomfortable.  Again, I can’t verify this personally and I can’t ask my husband.  I also can’t take part in a fire hose showdown.  Robbed again.  Why else do you think I write this stuff?  It’s the closest I can cum, er come, I’m afraid. 😥

There you have it! Now go out there and write some hot manlove. Who knows? You could be a natural! If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, feel free to comment below for a chance to win my e-book “Forever is Now” and I’ll be happy to provide it for you.

This is a Blog Hop!



Coming Together: Girl on Girl

Hello, my name is Leigh Ellwood and I am pleased Kim has graciously offered her blog for my guest post today. I am thrilled to announce that my latest project, Coming Together: Girl on Girl, is now for sale.

Girl on Girl 6x9 wrap

Girl on Girl, as you might expect, is a work of lesbian erotica and romance, but it’s much more than that. It’s a collection of some of the finest short stories in the genre that I’ve had the pleasure to read and edit. As a publication from Coming Together, royalties will benefit a specific charity – that’s right, no authors or editors were paid (or harmed) during production.

I have been involved in some way with Coming Together for a few years now – I have contributed to a previous anthology and have worked with many contributing authors. Girl on Girl marks the first time I have edited a full book with them, and it’s also the first all lesbian erotic work, which makes it extra special for me. I write many genres of erotica and romance, but I find my F/F works tend to sell well – I’ve even seen one of my books final in the Goldie Awards for lesbian fiction. I wanted to create Girl on Girl to help the National Center for Lesbian Rights, an organization dedicated to helping all LGBT people with legal issues. It pleased me to see so many authors willing to give their time to support human rights for all.

You can buy it now here:

Amazon- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ECF79SA/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00ECF79SA&linkCode=as2&tag=gayromance-20

If you enjoy lesbian erotica and romance of all sub-genres, Girl on Girl has it for you in one place. There’s BDSM, futuristic, contemporary, interracial, and historical. Toys, spanking, sex in public places…it’s all hot, and your purchase helps a great cause.

Hot Summer Romance Giveaway Hop!

Well, would you look at that?  <——

It’s like the backwards blog!  I don’t even try to make you read my post before you get to the goods!

Actually, I will make you comment.  And I’ll be bikini brief, I promise. All comments for all participating blogs will be shuffled around in a random name picker (not to be confused with a random nose picker). So comment on all the blogs at the top for the best chance to kick ass at winning!

But first, a word from your sponsor.

We have two grand prizes. #1 is a Kindle Fire. #2 is a $50 Amazon.com gift certificate.  Not too shabby. And you can win an e-book from me right here, baby! Fantabulous!

Hold up.  Wait and read what I have to say!  We’re talking words of wisdom passed down from generation to generation, folks. In the spirit of romance and hot summer lovin’, I had an old family proverb pop into mind.  It goes a little something like this:

When the weather’s hot and sticky,

That’s no time to dunk the dicky.

When the frost is on the pumpkin,

That’s the time for dicky dunkin’.

Thanks, Dad and Grandpa! So while it may be wicked-hot and hard to imagine dicky dunkin’ of any variety, fall is coming (and for you G.O.T. fans, winter isn’t far behind). To celebrate, I’m giving away a copy of my latest release, Star Catcher.  I never do this—goes against my personal company policy, so be very excited.  Star Catcher is set in the fall, and despite this heat wave we’re having, I can just imagine a bracing breeze as my heroine, Stella, races through a corn maze to escape otherworldly beasts. And I want to share it with y’all.

starcatchercover

So, comment, and I’ll shove your deets into the random name generator thingy, and if everything doesn’t get sucked into a voracious black hole, I’ll pick a winner.  It just may be you. 🙂

*****

Excerpt from Star Catcher:

Another overgrown shape materialized to Stella’s left. It sniffed the air and turned alarmingly in her direction.

It was all the impetus she needed. Stella turned and ran from the hounds of hell.

The stalks beat against her. They stung her bare skin and grasped her hair like bony fingers as she forced her body through the canes. She dug a path through the dry material, raking the plants with her hands to make way for her body, only to be slapped in the face as she split the rows. Stella ran like never before. In high school, she had competed in plenty of races on the track team. The act of pushing her body to the limit was not foreign to her.

This race was far worse, though. The stakes were life or death.

Fire speared through her chest as she sprinted between the scratchy vegetation with nothing more than moonlight to guide her. Rising hysteria made her breathing more labored than running alone. The thing could hear her crashing through the corn and could detect her scent. There was no point in trying to be stealthy. All she could do was move as swiftly as possible.

The pale moonlight grew brighter up ahead, and she forced herself not to slow.

Nearly safe. Get out of this nightmarish maze. Almost there.

Stella broke from the corn. A breath of unbelievable freedom nearly choked her, cool and remarkable, before she slammed into a wall of glass. Her arm had been pumping upward and took the brunt of the blow, but the barrier was completely unexpected. The breath gushed out of her like a released balloon.

She lay stunned in the damp grass, shaking and hyperventilating. The blades rose tall around her, and she was tempted to stay down; to hide. Who could see her here?

But that thing could smell her.

She wasn’t safe until her car door closed, and she was locked inside. Then she could relax. Stella managed to pull up on all fours and crawl over to the invisible wall. She reached a hand into what should have been open air and was met with ice-cold resistance.

What the hell?

It felt like plastic. She noticed a faint give and recoil as she pushed hard against the wall. It was like an invisible force field. Her stomach did a somersault.

Stay calm. If you lose your head, you’re done. Get to the entrance of the maze. Head right, follow the wall. You can get out of this, but you need to move now.

The voice in her head gave the command and she obeyed. Stella sprang up. Fight-or-flight hormones surged through her, and she began to run at top speed along the edge of the field. Her hand trailed along the smooth, cool barrier, waiting for a break in the enclosure. Sooner or later she would find the exit—that, or a dog-monster. Or maybe she’d run straight into the freaky sideshow chicks who had imprisoned them. Whatever happened, she wasn’t going down without a struggle.

If she was bound for Hell tonight, she wouldn’t be the only one.

Fifty Shades CliffsNotes

Chinatown Branch Library

Chinatown Branch Library (Photo credit: JenWaller)

I doubt FSOG will ever be required reading for any class, and therefore Mr. Cliffs will never give us the shortened version of the trilogy. Too bad for me, cause I’d really appreciate a chart detailing sexual positions and accouterments used by the happy couple.

I’m trying not to inadvertently do anything even remotely similar.

Good thing a church mom friend of mine read them all in her book club.  I’ll be picking her brain at the kids’ choir practice tonight.

If anyone out there has a quick and dirty cheat-sheet, kindly point me in the right direction.

AMF,

Kimber

P.S.  Before I posted this, I checked to be sure such a book didn’t exist.  There are, apparently, CliffsNotes for “The Hunger Games.”  Seriously?  What kind of pathetic high schooler can’t be bothered to read the book?  FSOG–it’s just a matter of time, I guess.  :/


Naming A Witch

Ravens

Ravens (Photo credit: Sergey Yeliseev)

I’m working on a witch-themed BDSM novella.  Normally, I don’t write BDSM, but the story made me do it, and someone is about to get tied down and nailed, and dammit, she’s gonna like it.  That’s beside the point.  The point is, I’m a little fuzzy on that someone’s name.

Yes, the BDSM makes me a tad antsy, as I have no practical experience with it, but I’m milking my creative cow, watching plenty of porn, and reading some truly bad books (which I suppose are a lesson on what not to do–come to think of it, the porn probably is, too).  So, I think I’ve torn down my mental roadblocks on that aspect of the story, and my characters are finally in a good place to get busy.

The problem I have now is my witch’s name.

So far, she is Raven in my WIP.  Not bad for a witch; it came as a bolt of inspiration I received during the Super Bowl, if you can believe that.  The name itself got me in the mood to write a witchy character, but for some reason I pictured her with red hair, not black as one might expect.

Now, parents can, and do, name their children without seeing what they look like, so of course there could be hundreds of red-haired Raven’s and blonde Ruby’s out there, but since I’m really the one doing the naming here, should I go with something that better describes her appearance?

Or maybe Raven perfectly describes her dark attitude…

I’m undecided, but I’ve got time and I’m totally open to suggestion.

Give me your good, bad witch names, friends.  Just kindly check your Sabrinas and Hermiones at the door.

#Sexy Snippets Sunday

Today’s #Sexy Snippet comes from my story “Bound by Ink” in Storm Moon Press’ “Written in Flesh” anthology.  Yes, it is guys loving guys.  Deal with it.

“I want to be the one toying with you for the rest of your days, Dax.”

Key’s index finger traced the seam of that perfect mouth.  He pulled the lower lip down with a light scrape and watched Dax’s pink tongue dart out to taste his skin.

“Do you want to put that declaration in writing?”

“A tattoo?”

“I want to put my name on you.”  Dax drew Key’s finger into his mouth, slowly sucking it in up to his knuckle.

Thursday Thrills

Writing to a prompt–who does that?  Well, I do today.

The lovely Tallulah Rose has orchestrated this flash fiction weekly prompt.  She’s so good.  Between 100 and 1000 words, based on a photo; check it out next time and see if you are inspired to do a little freewriting!

Here is the picture:

After you read mine, see what other offerings are floating around in the ether by clicking the pic above.  I think the photo lends itself to a variety of genres, particularly smut and horror.  And so, I mix and match. 🙂

——-

This is not a brothel.

I guess “brothel” would imply an exchange of payment, and we never took money for our services.  I think the words on the knocker got us more patrons than a gaudy sign flashing the word “sex” over and over ever could have.  And somehow, they all walked through the door expecting to find their most scandalous desires manifested.

They often did.

We tried not to disappoint.  After all, the more they enjoyed themselves, the better they tasted.

I often thought we were like the pear upside-down cake I always made for our staff Yule party.  Before I flipped over the pan, it looked like a straight-forward cake–light and fluffy, enough to satisfy any sweet-tooth.  That’s how the girls and I looked to the men who came sniffing around.

Until the doors locked behind them, and we tossed the dish over and revealed the sticky bottom; then, our blackened brown-sugar side was obvious.  It was still syrupy sweet, almost intolerably cloying, but they never ran for the exits.  They always sampled until the bitter end.

And the knocker continued to crack against our door every night.  The sound always made me salivate.

I love chicken.

————————————–

200 words

That’s really all I can manage. 🙂  I’ll admit, the chicken part was just to get it to a nice, round 200.  I have a hard spot for 200-word stories.  Chicken is actually only okay in my book.

The Next Big Thing–Bigger and Badder

This is like Die Harder, because I’ve done this already.  Maybe I should have titled this “The Next Big Thing–Judgement Day.”  Hey, it’s a different book I’m answering questions about, so perfectly legit.  Don’t get your tighty whities all in a bunch.

Anyway, I was tagged by Velvet Panic, a M/M romance blog spearheaded by the lovely Janice Matthews.  Go check out her blog post on her WIP, “Hunter.” It’s a sexy read so far.  I know this, because I’ve sampled it.

Now, about me…

What is the working title of your book?

“Double Takes,” book two in my Shooting Stars series

Where did the idea come from for the book?

Book one in my Shooting Stars series, duh.  “Rock and Hard Places” is the first book.  My MC in “Double Takes,” Gio Savale, had a walk-on role in RaHPs.  Mainly, I wanted to find a way to meet up with my boys Chance and Alex again.  In the process, I have fallen in love with Gio and his boyfriend Lance. I’m 2/3 of the way done with the book and we haven’t even seen the boys from RaHPs yet.  But we will…oh, we will [rubs hands together like I have something evil planned even though I don’t–actually it will be a barrel of monkeys].

What is the genre of the book?

M/M Erotic Romance

Which actors would you choose to play your main characters in a movie rendition?

Gio would be played by Anthony Kiedis ten years ago.  Surprise, surprise.

English: Anthony Kiedis, frontman of the Red H...

English: Anthony Kiedis, frontman of the Red Hot Chili Peppers in July 2006 Deutsch: Der Frontmann der Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis, im Juli 2006 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Lance would be played by Tom Hardy.   I’m getting a little hot just thinking about it.  Tom Hardy does that to me.  Actually, so does Anthony Kiedis.  Okay, moving on.

What is your one sentence synopsis of the book?

Ugh.

No!  That wasn’t it!  There is too much going on for one sentence!

Okay…my attempts at a log line.  Go!

Love comes when Gio Savale least expects it and from the most unlikely person, but can he conquer both his and Lance’s demons to win their happily ever after?

I say yes, and quite frankly, I’m in charge here.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency/publisher?

I plan to submit to a publisher.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

It’s not done yet!  I started it for a half-assed NaNoWriMo.  Been chipping away at it ever since.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Ummmmm….

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

Reading KA Mitchell just to see what all the boy on boy fuss was about inspired my love of M/M, so let’s just give her credit in a broad sense.  My love of music and concerts and sexy-fine rock stars inspired me to write the series.  Of course, the third book is about Kyrie, a drama queen to the gills.  No, really.  He wants to be an actor, so he can still be a Shooting Star (double entendre intended–get it?  Get it?), but he’s no rocker.  He is funny, fruity, and endearingly naive, though.  I’m looking forward to writing his story next.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

“Double Takes” grabs that rock star from his pedestal and throws him down in the ring of hard knocks.  Gio is going through a rough patch and I think it’s fun to show a famous person struggling through all the crap the not-so-beautiful people have to endure (financial problems, divorce, a child custody battle, unsavory characters trying to take advantage of him, and love with—oh my—another guy of all things, who also happens to come with his fair share of baggage).  So far, I am having a lot of fun with this story. 😉

Oh, and there is also hot man love that isn’t consummated for a while, so, yes I am a bit of a tease in this one. ❤

I’m going to tag my buddy Tallulah Rose.  Can’t wait to see what she’s working on these days.  I’m also tagging the wonderful Jadette Paige, fellow M/M author and she of “The Story Behind the Book” blog.  Check ’em out!

Over and out.
