Delilah Devlin: When a short story deserves a longer story…

If you picked up a copy of the last collection, Stranded, then, hopefully, you read my short story “Quincy Down Under”, which was set in my Montana Bounty Hunter’s world. Well, I couldn’t let Quincy and Tamara’s little liaison be the end of their romance. Tomorrow, you can read the rest of the story! There’s plenty of humor, sexiness, and action to keep you humming along. You can pre-order your copy now, so you don’t miss the next installment! Quincy…

Michal Scott: Teaching One To Fish–The Liberian Womens Sewing Project (Excerpt)

Michal Scott: Teaching One To Fish–The Liberian Womens Sewing Project (Excerpt)

The saying goes, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” The connection between agency and self-sufficiency is obvious. It lends itself to more modern iterations like, “Don’t give a hand out. Give a hand up.” Ministering in inner city communities that most of the business world has abandoned, I love finding examples of agency/self-sufficiency projects that show them up. I found one of…

For Authors! Call for Submissions! FIRST RESPONSE: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology

FIRST RESPONSE: A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY Editor: Delilah Devlin Deadline: November 15, 2019 FIRST RESPONSE is open to all authors. Editor/Author Delilah Devlin is looking for stories for a romantic erotica anthology tentatively entitled FIRST RESPONSE: A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY. Why write a short story for this collection? Well, it’s certainly not about making a lot of money, so why do it at all? I’ve said this before, but here are my thoughts… Writing a short story for…

Kimberly Lithe: “Burning Stars” from STRANDED (Contest)

Kimberly Lithe: “Burning Stars” from STRANDED (Contest)

I always try to use humor in all my writing, even if comedy is not central to the story as a whole. Witty banter is the best kind of foreplay, so I spent a lot of time on the dialogue, even going so far as to strong-arm my very reluctant brother into critiquing it. I like to think the vibe of my story is a mix between the films True Lies and Lockout if they had aliens, superhumans and steamy…

Ara Geller: “Reviving Artemis” from STRANDED (Contest)

Ara Geller: “Reviving Artemis” from STRANDED (Contest)

Writing is as easy as bleeding on a page, they say. I would generally agree, only adding that it is as easy as bleeding on a page after you’ve donated five gallons of blood, was drained by a vampire, and have found yourself in an alternate reality where beaten tree pulp is nothing but a myth of long-gone days of barbarism. And yet we write. And we suffer. And we love it. Or so we tell ourselves, insistently, over the…

Elle James: “Rescuing Alaska” from STRANDED (Contest)

Elle James: “Rescuing Alaska” from STRANDED (Contest)

I got my story idea from a Halibut fishing trip I took off Homer Spit, Alaska in 2012. The deckhand on the boat was a pretty redhead with some serious skills fileting fish! She was spunky and so darned cute I had to put her into a story. And we’ve seen shows about the Coast Guard guys rescuing people in Alaska. Yummy heroes, dangerous waters—a combination that makes the heart pound! Elle James Excerpt from “Rescuing Alaska” A Coast Guardsman…

A.C. Dawn: “A Stranger’s Kiss from STRANDED (Contest)

I couldn’t believe it when Delilah picked me for the Stranded: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology. I began writing as a ghostwriter, cranking out ebooks on everything from mythology to critical thinking to erotica and romance. It’s been fun, but i really wanted to put my name on something! I’ve been writing since I was kid (which translates to a long, long time…) and have always been fascinated with the power of words. I love to put them together to…

Kenzie Mathews: “Hourglass” from STRANDED (Contest)

Kenzie Mathews: “Hourglass” from STRANDED (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner of the Amazon gift card is…Mary Preston! Congrats! *~*~* I had 1930 screwball comedies in mind when I wrote “Hourglass.” I love those movies. The hero has a great sense of humor, the heroine is a hot mess like me, and craziness ensues. I also wanted to include my other love, Science Fiction/Fantasy. I grew up devouring Theodore Sturgeon, Harlan Ellison, Tolkien, and numerous other fantastical authors. Blending these two loves was fun. Kenzie Mathews Excerpt from…

Kimberly Dean: The Things You Learn (Contest)

UPDATE: And the winner is…Latifa Morisette! *~*~* If you ever start writing romance, there’s one question you’ll inevitably hear. “How did you research that? Heh, heh.” And the person asking the question will think they’re so original and so funny. They’re neither, but what they don’t understand is that there can be a lot of research required when writing romance. For my story, “Out of This World,” in the Stranded: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology, I read a lot about…
