Sex and Dancehalls and Vampires oh My

It appears my dancehall has been invaded. Susie B. is pissed and apparently so is Paperback Writer since those are HER vamps Jake took off with.

I’d intended to do some special excerpts of Summer’s Seduction from Sex on Holiday this week but um …. the only version in existence is on the hard drive I can’t get to soooooooooo how about a behind the scenes peek into my first published short erotica story.

I wrote Summer’s Seduction one weekend while my son was having a slumber party–don’t ask I must have been nuts! I sent off the first draft to Raine (My CP aka Dreamweaver) and did a bit of brainstorming. The theme is of course, stories about sex on vacation but I really wanted to do something besides “she went to a resort and got laid”–seemed a bit cliche, so I took a page from my own life though Lucy’s vacation was much more glamorous than mine.

Many moons ago I headed to San Antonio for the GSTRC (George Strait Team Roping Classic). I had planned to stay with my friend Hollie and she had a babysitter lined up for the kids so we could go to the team roping. Nothing and I mean NOTHING will ruin a vacation faster than breaking down on the side of the road. We made it as far as Georgetown when my poor old Escort gave out. Me, and two kids STRANDED at the fucking KFC for like FIVE hours. Hollie still calls me Kentucky Fry to this day because of that.

Well from this came the idea for Summer’s Seduction where Lucy Cavannaugh finds herself stranded on the side of the road in BFE Arizona in the middle of summer. After a long walk she finds a deserted gas station and a house and like Goldilocks, makes herself at home, falling asleep on the couch.

But it’s no bear that finds her, or even a team roping cowboy, it’s Greg Summers a local cop on vacation.

You can check out Summer’s Seduction in Black Lace Books’ Sex on Holiday.

Smoking Update

This one defintely has to be filed under Bitch 😀

Monica–isn’t Zyban also Wellbutrin? I took Wellbutrin for two years(chronic depression) and smoked like a freight train. 😕 Shan I do believe a lot of it is mindset, but I won’t preach to the choir. The last time I quit was just EASY. I’d just finished my first manuscript and thougth “If I can write a manuscript, I can do anything–including quit!”

Suzanne…my biological grandfather died at age 70 of lung cancer and smoked till the day he died. I’ve heard lung cancer is awful (not to mention Monica and Hollie’s comments!) and I don’t want to go like that. For anyone interested, this is what I’ve used to help kick the habit–I used it last time too 🙂 .

Was incredibly grumpy Sunday night and Monday morning, :undecided: ) but the kids survived. Went to bed early with a headache. Throat’s rough. Smoked 6 ciggies Monday, about 1/2 at a time. It was defintely more about the “light up habit” than really wanting one.

So far only two today but I couldn’t even finish the second one. It was like sucking a tailpipe–go figure. 😆
