Delilah Devlin: F*R*E*E READ!

Delilah Devlin: F*R*E*E READ!

I have tons of short stories, and every now and then I like to offer one to readers who haven’t yet developed a taste for a more concise, raw read. Do you remember when a short story of mine was featured in Penthouse? Yeah, mine’s the “Raunchy Road Trip.” 🙂 This story also appeared in the Cleis anthology, Duty and Desire! Anyway, if you’d like a free copy of the story, all you have to do is sign up for…

Must love bounty hunters! Check out “The Bounty”!

Must love bounty hunters! Check out “The Bounty”!

As an author, I get asked all the time where I get my ideas. Truth is, I get ideas everywhere—the news, TV, a dream, a snippet of overheard conversation… A few months ago, I was pushing up against two deadlines. I needed a story for Elle James’s Brotherhood Protectors Kindle World launch, and I needed an idea for a short story for the Blue Collar anthology. I had covers for both and kept looking at them, hoping for inspiration.  …

N.J. Walters: Roadside Assistance

N.J. Walters: Roadside Assistance

N.J. and I were “stable-mates” at Samhain Publishing before they closed their doors, so I already knew she was a great writer. Which was why I was thrilled when I saw her “Roadside Assistance” appear in my Outlook inbox! Then she had me with these three words: Big and hard and tattooed. Yup, I’m that shallow. I fell in love with Vincent before he even opened his mouth. Maybe you will too… 🙂 ~DD Excerpt from N.J. Walters’s “Roadside Assistance” in Blue…

Kris Norris: Cabin Fever (Contest)

Kris Norris: Cabin Fever (Contest)

Blue Collar Men I’ll be honest. When I first read the submission guidelines for this collection, I wasn’t sure what to write about. Even after looking up the ‘definition’, it seems folks have a varied opinion of what it means to be a blue collar worker, or should I say which jobs qualify. But one thing was clear, they are everyday heroes. Men that save us from the dead car on the side of the road, rain pelting the windshield,…

Tray Ellis: Full of the Wild Life

Tray Ellis: Full of the Wild Life

Note! Yesterday’s contest is still open, and you can earn another entry by commenting here today! When reading through the submissions for Blue Collar, I looked for stories with different flavors of heroes. I didn’t want all mechanics, cops, or plumbers (odd, I didn’t get a single plumber!), so when I found Tray’s story, a hero who worked as a surveyor, I thought, yeah! Add the fact the story was set in Alaska, and that it had a very real…

Robie Madison: Renovating the Heart (Giveaway)

In a book filled with stories about blue-collar guys, you know there had to be at least one “Mr. Fix-It”! Robie Madison’s story was just the one I was looking for. Take a lonely divorcée who needs a little boost in girly confidence, add a man she’s drooled over in the past, and who can give as good in the attitude department as our heroine, and you have a winner! Enjoy the excerpt. Be sure to give Robie some love…

M. Marie: In the Heat of the Moment

M. Marie: In the Heat of the Moment

Reading tons of sexy short stories in order to find the right mix of stories to live side by side in one volume is a tough job, right? Nah. For me, it’s a joy. And I have only a couple of rules. First, if I don’t enjoy the story, it’s not making the cut. Second, variety is the spice of life. I didn’t want stories that felt cookie-cutter. I wanted different settings, different flavors of blue collar heroes. Authors with…
