From Mated with the Cyborg…last chance for love….

Mated600x900

Happy Valentine’s Day, Weekend Writing Warriors! Unfortunately, this is your last chance for love because next week I’ll switch from Mated with the Cyborg to Captured by the Cyborg, book 3 in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series.

But from now, one last snippet from Mated with the Cyborg. After going AWOL from Cy-Ops to save Mariska, Kai (with Mariska in tow) seeks help from a cyborg buddy, Dale Homme.

Fortunately, Dale had the good sense not to mention the veil. “It’s a pleasure to meet you.” He flashed one of the megawatt smiles he reserved for seducing the opposite sex.

Kai ground his teeth.

The flirtation means nothing.  She wasn’t his woman, but a terrorist’s pawn he’d broken the rules to save. He needed to avoid distractions and focus on his objective: get her to a safe haven and then salvage what remained of his Cy-Ops career.

“If you’re finished ogling Mariska, you might peek behind me.”

Dale winked at her as if they shared a joke then shifted his gaze over Kai’s shoulder.  “Holy Fuck!

What does he see? You’ll have to read Mated with the Cyborg to find out. What I will show you is the cover of Dale’s book, Captured by the Cyborg. CLICK HERE.

Book Description

Kai Andros’s orders were simple. Get in. Gather the intel on the terrorist organization. Get out. Then he met her. Mariska. Beautiful. Innocent. Ignorant of her father’s atrocities. And marked for death. His orders said nothing about saving her. But he did. He went off-mission. Can a rogue cyborg outrun both Cyber Operations and the terrorists to save the woman he loves?

Mated with the Cyborg is an action-packed erotic sci-fi romance between a man with a mission and a woman with a secret that jeopardizes their lives and the fate of the galaxy.

#FridayFaves: Sedona, AZ & how not to make the NY Times bestseller list

Nature Background Framed By Green Leaves

Friday Faves is an (almost) weekly post in which I present two of my favorite things. One is personal, the other is publishing industry-related.

This week’s personal Friday Fave is:…Sedona, Arizona.

One of my favorite vacation spots in the United States is Sedona, Ariz., red-rock desert about two hours from Phoenix. I wouldn’t want to live there; the tourist traffic is too bad, but I’ve contributed to the  tourist traffic. I’ve been to Sedona four or five times, the last time in 2010, so it’s time for another trip. In particular I love hiking the trails among the red rocks, the stark color contrast of blue sky against red rock, and the spicy desert smell. Plus, there’s some great restaurants, too.

This week’s publishing fave is:  How not to make the New York Times Bestseller List – a blog by Autumn Kalquist

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00024]

Autumn Kalquist’s  YA Sci-fi series, Fractured Era made the USA Today bestseller list, but even though she met the threshold in sales, she did not make the New York Times, list. She wrote a lengthy blog about it, which has been heating up discussion boards. Here’s what to know: the NY Times bestseller list is curated. That basically means books must be approved to get on the list, it’s not just how many books you sell. The New York Times’ motto, “all the news that’s fit to print,” applies to its bestseller list. The list includes those the books they deem fit to be on it. Autumn’s experience is interesting. If you want to know how to get on a bestseller list or how not to, her blog is worth reading.

Lose yourself in a whole lotta naughty with this sexy collection of ALL-NEW, standalone novellas sure to set your e-reader ablaze and leave you breathlessly panting for more.

Slab Hands by Annabel Joseph: Christine’s always been curious about spanking, and the bouncer at the bottom of the stairs has a magnificent set of hands. Once he learns about her secret disciplinary fantasies, he’s more than happy to put those hands to use…

Master Class: Initiation by Sierra Cartwright: When wanna-be sub Jennifer Berklee calls him Master and begs him to flog her, PI Logan Powell knows all his military training won’t be enough to keep his jaded heart safe. He intends to claim this sexy, innocent woman for his own…no matter the cost.

Theirs to Punish by Renee Rose: When a billionaire’s daughter-turned-ninja picked Casino Magnifico for a heist, she didn’t take into account one thing–actually–two. Twin owners Joe and Alex Jamison won’t hesitate to employ a little corporal punishment to bring the virgin socialite in line…

Lust Angel by Cari Silverwood: On good days, what falls from the heavens may be a naked woman. As an ex-SAS soldier, now private contractor, Adam is used to the unexpected, but nothing in life has prepared him for a fallen angel with a craving for spanking, bondage, and punishment.

Stepbrother Jerk by Natasha Knight: To buy her stepbrother’s silence, Lisa agrees to submit to his discipline, even though she has no idea what she’s in for. But Jace knows exactly what his stepsister needs and a bare bottom spanking is only the beginning.

His Runaway Valentine by Sue Lyndon: When a handsome stranger rides out of nowhere to rescue Nora from slavers, the runaway bride is shocked to learn he’s the very man to whom she was betrothed. There’s no escaping the arranged marriage now, and Luke is quick to make Nora understand that he expects not only obedience, but her absolute surrender.

Rose’s Are Red by Ashe Barker: Rose has had a crush on Iain McCain for years and when she spots her sexy ex-teacher with a whip in his hand at her favourite BDSM club her heart stills.

Stepping It Up by Cara Bristol: Ariel had crushed on her stepbrother Hunter for years. But if he expects to win back her heart in one wicked weekend, he’ll have to step it up and take her in hand…the Rod and Cane Society way.

Claiming Chloe by Korey Mae Johnson: When she is left alone on Valentine’s Day, Chloe takes matters into her own hands. But going out exploring on her own on an alien planet turns out not to be the best idea she ever had, and when her three handsome alien mates end up having to rescue her, Chloe’s bare bottom will pay the price for her naughtiness.

Maud and the Secret Society of Saint Valentine by Emily Tilton: Maud has decided that the new boyfriend she’s crazy about can’t be serious when he tells her she needs a firm hand in the bedroom and everywhere else. The Secret Society of Saint Valentine begs to differ, and summons her to a tribunal where she’ll learn just how serious David is.

Dancing With a Dom by Katherine Deane: What do ballroom dancing, hard spankings, and mind-blowing orgasms have in common? I guess it depends who your dance partner is. The man smiling down at me, with his hand on my waist… he’s a Dom. And he wants to be mine this Valentine’s Day.

Taking the Human by Trent Evans: For Lukanos, a muscle bound, seven foot tall alien, abducting the beautiful human female was the easy part. Winning her heart—and not breaking his own—was something else entirely.

Sweet Birdie Blue by Alta Hensley: Rem Langston has no choice but to save the feisty Birdie Bluebell, whether she wants saving or not. Their icy beginning soon turns to a passion hot enough to melt the blizzard outside, but will Birdie accept Rem into her heart?

An excerpt from Stepping It Up in Bound, Spanked, & Loved

“Don’t run from me again,” he said sternly, but he didn’t blame her. He’d run the fastest and the furthest. Had run into the arms of too many other women in an attempt to outrun his feelings for her—until he ran smack into the truth. He loved her, and no other woman would do.

“No.”

cara quote 1“Sir,” he instructed.

“No, sir.” Her husky voice would have given him a woody if he didn’t already have one.

“I’ll only come after you.” He slipped his hand through the open lapels of her robe and under her pajama shirt to cup her breast. She sucked in a breath through parted lips as he stroked the beaded tip to greater hardness. He watched her face as he pinched and rolled her nipples, enjoying the play of expressions, noting her reactions, gauging her pain tolerance.

He pushed her robe off her shoulders to puddle around her hips then tugged up her shirt and captured a reddened stiff bud in his mouth. With tongue and teeth, he teased moans of pleasure from her lips. She had sweet, sexy breasts, not too large but a good handful. Her rounded bottom pressed against his aching erection. Soon he would be inside her, would have her bottom up over his lap, and might even fuck her ass. But before they progressed to that level, a clear base of understanding needed to be established.

Actions did speak louder than words.

He tugged at her pajama shirt. “Take this off. The rest, too.” He eased her off his lap and tossed her robe onto the floor then rested his hands on his spread knees.

“B-but…what about…aren’t you…” Aren’t you going to undress? He could read the question in her eyes.

“Just do as I tell you.”

With only a slight hesitation, she stripped.

Then, with her hands fidgeting at her sides, she waited, like a good subbie. A natural.

From her rounded breasts, his gaze traveled over her tummy. A tiny gold ring pierced her navel. He didn’t remember that from summers at the lake or in the parents’ pool. “Is this new?” he asked.

“I got it a couple of years ago.”

“I like it.” It was sexy as hell and suggested she might consent to having her nipples or clitoral hood pierced. He eyed her mound. Bare. Perfect. He continued his slow visual tour, following the long lines of her legs down to her rosy toenails and then back up again to her face.

A blush tinted her cheekbones, but desire flickered in her eyes. She liked being on display for him. He’d bet anything her pussy was sopping wet.

Submissive to his Dominant. Feminine to his masculine. Light to his darkness. His perfect partner. What a fool he’d been to wait so long. Lust surged, and the need to stake his claim swelled, but he forced back the urge.

First things first. “I left a duffel by the front door. Please bring it to me.”

She left the room. He admired the backside view. Her ass belonged to him.

She came back with the bag.

“Set it there.” He pointed to a spot beside the sofa.

Curiosity lit her gaze, but she didn’t ask about it. He liked how she waited for his instruction. He’d do more than that. He’d show her. He wasn’t sure yet how much of the bag’s contents he would use tonight, but he wanted his supplies within easy reach. “At the party, I was going to tell you about the Rod and Cane Society.”

That got a reaction. She planted her hands on her hips. “You want to talk about that now?” She looked so cute standing their naked and feisty. Not cute—fucking amazing. His fantasy come to life. He desired an obedient, submissive partner, but not a doormat.

“It bears on what’s going to happen next.”

“Aren’t we going to have sex?”

“Yes, but not until after I spank you.”

True or false: He who touches the sacred spiral shall die…from Mated with the Cyborg

Mated600x900

Today’s Weekend Writing Warrior’s Mated with the Cyborg snippet follows last week’s. If you recall, Kai kissed Mariska’s shoulder and she freaked, because he touched the birthmark. The last line was,  “’He who touches the sacred spiral shall die.’” she quoted what she’d been told.

His cough could not mask his snort of laughter.

She balled her fists and rounded on him. “I was concerned for your safety, and you mock me?  All my life, if I wasn’t ignored, I was ridiculed. Your customs and concepts are foreign and strange to me! I don’t make fun of you! Don’t try to reshape me into a…a…Terran. My beliefs are the only possessions I own.”

She snatched up her veil and rushed for the door.

“Mariska, wait!”

Alas! This isn’t the only time Kai sticks his foot in his mouth.

BTW, earlier in the week, I posted 10 tips for authors to get the most of out of snippet hops like Weekend Writing Warriors. Commenters offered more suggestions. Check out the tips here.

New blog series: #FridayFaves…featuring my favorite things

Scenic nature background of fresh lush green leaves with dewdrops framing the out of focus vegetation with bekeh highlights and the sun vibrant colorsToday begins a new blog series. Friday Faves will have two parts. Part one will be personal like a favorite possession, a fond memory, or a place I love. Part two will be publishing related (but not about me), like a useful blog or website, another author’s book, a review site I like, or a service for authors. The plan is to do Friday Faves weekly, although I may miss some weeks. To kick it off…

My personal Friday Fave is…Leaves!

What can I say except I like leaves. Yeah, the kind that grow on trees. I’m drawn to them in nature, in decorating, and even in accessories I wear. The last three houses we owned all had “tree house” views, and I’ve painted the master bedroom of the last three houses green, even though it’s not my favorite color.

Some of my favorite earrings:

Try as I might, I could not keep myself out of the reflection in photographing this picture. It is way prettier than it looks here. These are real leaves that have been preserved. I fell in love with this when I saw it an art gallery on a girl’s trip to Sedona, AZ with my best friend. I didn’t buy it, went home, and regretted it. My friend remembered they were called “skeletonized” leaves so I was able to track it down and buy it. My friend died of cancer a few years ago, but I feel like I have this picture to remember her by. It sits over my desk where I write.

I needed a quick table centerpiece one time, so I ran outside and cut some branches.

This is another favorite item of mine. I love this tray. It’s on my coffee table.

Publishing fave: Bound, Spanked & Loved, Fourteen Kinky Valentine’s Day stories.

Final 2D_BoundSpankedLoved_mediumDisclaimer: I said I would not promote my books in my publishing fave section, so I need to disclose that I do have a story in this book. HOWEVER, forget that. Because there are 13 other stories that I didn’t write in Bound, Spanked, & Loved,  and that’s what I want to talk about.

They are freaking awesome. In all honesty, I expected cheap smut. Short, titillating stories with little plot or characterization. Not so.  My co-authors are amazing and their stories are wonderful. The plots are excellent, the characters are well developed and believable, the scenarios are realistic. Bound, Spanked, & Loved is damn good read. Treat yourself to a Valentine’s Day present for only 99 cents.

For authors: 10 tips to get the most out of your ‘snippet hop’

iStock_000013528921XSmallA“snippet hop,” is an online event in which authors present short (6-10 sentences) excerpts from their books and visitors go from one blog to the next to read and comment.  I estimate I have visited thousands of snippet blog posts in the five years or so that I’ve participated as an author. I’ve been wanting to slap some sense write this post for a long time.

On numerous occasions, I’ve left a snippet hop post without leaving comment. After reading the snippet, the only thing I thought was, “I’ve got nothing.” The excerpt was so mundane, so ordinary, I had nothing to react to and I wondered, why did the author bother posting it?

Your excerpts have the potential to reach readers who might be interested in your book. You should always present your best stuff.

With that in mind, I offer 10 suggestions to get the most out of a snippet hop:

  1. Select an excerpt with a hook. The excerpt needs to stand alone, and there should be something interesting going on. You need to create conflict or tension, raise a question in the reader’s mind, show a unique character trait, present witty dialogue, or leave the reader with a cliffhanger. The reader doesn’t know the story, doesn’t know what came before or after that snippet. What you post must have a hook!
  2. You don’t need to present your story chronologically. You can jump around from week to week  because it’s all out of context anyway. You might think visitors remember where your story left off last week, but they don’t. I refer you back to point No. 1. You want to present a hook, and a chronology won’t do that. It’s probably best if you don’t tell the story chronologically because if a visitor can get the Cliff’s Notes version of your story from reading your blog, why buy the book?
  3. Ground the reader with a sentence or two of introduction about the scene. But if a snippet requires more than sentence or two to clue them in, it’s not a good excerpt. Pick another one. Again, I refer you back to point No. 1.
  4. Too long? Edit from the middle. Sometimes the excerpt you love exceeds the sentence limit. Here’s a trick. Instead of resorting to “creative punctuation,” which makes your excerpt look unedited, eliminate the nonessential words/sentences from the middle.

Example –This excerpt from Mated with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 2) that I want to use is 14 sentences, 4 too long for the rules of Weekend Writing Warriors. So, I edit:

His cough could not mask his snort of laughter.

Fear vanished. Rage filled the void. She balled her fists and rounded on him. “I was concerned for your safety, and you mock me? How dare you! All my life, if I wasn’t ignored, I was ridiculed. Your customs and concepts are foreign and strange to me! I don’t make fun of you! Don’t try to reshape me into a…a…Terran. My beliefs are the only possessions I own. Do not take them from me!

She snatched up her veil and rushed for the door.

“Mariska, wait!”

Voila! Ten sentences! (And it’s stronger. I should have written it that way in the first place).

  1. Polish your excerpts. Authors often use excerpts from WIPs (Works in Progress). That’s all right, but edit your work. The excerpt should be as polished as you can make it, because people will judge you by what you present publicly. Your goal should be to hook a reader with your story, not to get editing help or an online critique.
  2. For God’s sake, if the rules allow it, include a blurb. Again, it grounds the reader with context to what they’re reading and helps to sell your book. That’s why you’re writing, isn’t it?
  3. Let visitors know if the excerpt is from a WIP or a published work, and if it’s published, for your sake, put a buy link out there. If someone is hooked by your story, don’t you want them to buy it?
  4. If it’s not obvious from the title or the book cover, let the reader know what genre you’re writing.
  5. If you want people to come to your blog and comment on your posts, you have to go to theirs. It’s the unwritten rule of reciprocity, only now it’s been written.
  6. Follow the rules of the hop, but use the rules to your advantage. If the hop doesn’t suit your marketing purposes, there’s no reason to do it.

I currently participate in Weekend Writing Warriors, a Sunday hop. If you’re interested in other hops, my author friend Renee Rose who blogs for Write Sex Right has compiled a list of the different hops. You can get that here.

Have you participated in a hop? Do you have other tips to add to this list?

More strange terrorist beliefs…from Mated with the Cyborg #SFR #ScifiRom

Mated600x900

For this week’s Weekend Writing Warriors’ excerpt from Mated with the Cyborg, I’m moving away from the spy stuff to the romance stuff, because yes, Mated is a romance, and Kai and Mariska do couple up. Ahem. In fact, in this little scene, they’ve been kissing. He pulls aside the neckline of her dress, and kisses her shoulder…

Before she could warn him, he’d pressed his lips to the sacred spiral. Her stomach plummeted, and with a cry wrenching up from her soul, she jerked away.

“What’s wrong? What did I do?”

She stared at him, standing so strong and tall, so alive.

“Did I hurt you? I didn’t think I nipped that hard.”

“Y-you’re not supposed to…to…touch the mark.”

“Did I violate some custom?”

“‘He who touches the sacred spiral shall die,’” she quoted what she’d been told.
