24 Ebooks at 99 Cents Each

Well, actually two of the ebooks are free: Etiquette at the Nude Beach and Everybody Wants to be in the Movies. Also, five of the stand-alone short stories are included in a single ebook collection — so you can get all of them for 99 cents in Orpheus Rising.

The largest savings are for the novel (Bavarian Beauty) and short-story collection (Orpheus Rising), each of which are typically $3.99. The novellas are typically $2.99, so the savings is still a couple of bucks.

This sale is to help celebrate February as a month of love, and these prices will continue for more than a month — until the first of April. So stock up your reading device with some sexy and romantic stories that’ll heat up these chilly winter days!

The books are organized by length (insert your own size matters joke here), and the categories below are based on word count definitions in Wikipedia, but I increased the word count of the novel definition from 40,000 words to 100,000 words, so that just one of my ebooks fits that criterion.

When Katherine needs help fleshing out a scene in her new book, she calls on Josh to role-play the sword-fighting scene … and then swords flash swiftly. But when the sword play is done, the author and typist continue the roles of the story, relinquishing to the passion that flames them.

The experience surges Donna’s arousal — however, her boyfriend won’t answer her calls. So she heads back to her apartment, figuring she’ll take matters into her own hands.

But what does it mean? Laura puts it to the side, as she works hard in her office on a Saturday to finish a big project.

When one of the men starts pitching a tent of the towel on his lap, he tries to cover it up. He’s being careful, since he doesn’t want the other man to know he’s turned on. But what if the other guy is also pitching a tent? Then an introduction must be made. And, because a third man walks in, plans must be made for meeting up later. That’s when their party moves to the townhouse that one of them owns. Amazon

Bikini Sunbathe. Becca comes back inside the house after sunbathing in the backyard, and she’s stunned to see her husband (Greg) lounging naked on the sofa. Also, she’s stunned to find out that he spied on her while she sunbathed, since he was so aroused by seeing her in the pink string bikini.

Prompt Poems: Farewell, Feed My Desire, End

One last post for 2014. I hope you have a fun and very safe New Year’s Eve! A few more prompt poems for you…

The door closed
behind him
echoing
his word
farewell.”

Staring at
the door,
she knew
her heart
had also
closed.

*****

When I
need to feed
my desire
,
it won’t be
all roses
and
candlelit
dinners,
but
much more
savage.

*****

Again
again
we’ve come to
the end
but
it’s also
the beginning
for something
else.

Prompt Poems: Messenger, Sunrise, You, Illusion

She plops
her messenger bag
on the
coffee shop’s table,
and she’ll
never know
how much
I enjoy her
tattooed beauty.

*****

He’s not sure
if she’s more
beautiful
in the glow
of the sunset
or the
sunrise,
but decides
it doesn’t
really matter.

*****

Upon the
sunrise,
she is
grateful
that he is
still
in her bed
and not
rushing off
to check the
green of another
field.

*****

It was you
always you
and
it took me
years
of fumbling
stumbling
dumbling
to finally
see it.

*****

Trick of the light,
a desperate mirage,
fool’s gold glitter,
your eyes
that night
were
looks of illusion
as you made
empty promises.

Prompt Poems: Unraveled, Naughty, Shimmering, Grasp

Thread spool
unraveled
across the floor
catlike
she followed it
to find
her present
in a little box,
and it
took her breath
away.

*****

It is
not,
he said
to her,
a choice
between
naughty or nice
but
between
does it feel good
or
not.

*****

Nutcracker’s
waltzing party,
shimmering
dresses,
shimmering
tree lights,
shimmering
eyes with delight
and fantasies
the night will bring.

*****

When he
followed up
on his promise
of being there
when she
needed him,
she had a
grasp of
always
.

4 #fieryverse Poems

Four more poems stemming from #fieryverse prompts in the past several days… trying out different scenarios and describing them in an efficient, Twitter-word-count limited way. I’ve found that these prompts are a good stretching of creativity. The prompt is in bold within each poem…

Gathering together
our strength
abounds.
Contentious
sometimes,
but upon parting
until
next time,
we are still
grateful.

*****

Dressed or
in various
stages of
undress,
I believe
she can
see right into
the depths
of me.

*****

There is no
question
of with
or without
,
for
I am simply
better
with her.

*****

Maybe
tomorrow

she will leave,
for the
walls reverberate
with his shouts
of abuse
and belittling.

Silver-White Winter

Another #fieryverse prompt from Twitter this morning, and here are my two shots at short poetry for “silver-white winter”…

Other women
wore black
to the ball,
but encased in
silver-white winter,
she was stunning.

*****

Her hair
flowed like
silver-white winter
the warmth
he felt,
of love
built with
every year
of their forty-nine
together.
