Belinda LaPage: Shear Passion Giveaway (and a competition!)

Belinda LaPage: Shear Passion Giveaway (and a competition!)

Australia is not everybody’s idea of Christmas – sun’s out, guns out – the weather’s hot and so are the men. This story, Shear Passion, first appeared in Delilah’s Boys Behaving Badly anthology, Blue Collar, and like Delilah’s December giveaways, it hits its breathtaking peak just a few days before Christmas. It’s an Aussie outback romance with a roughneck shearer and the fiery farmer’s daughter who would tame him. Here’s the cover blurb: There’s nothing hotter than an outback shearing…

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…

Megan Mitcham: Elevation and 2 Free Novels for All

Billionaires…I never understood the draw. They’re barricaded from the world by high walls, security systems and guards. Blue Collar men, on the other hand, build the foundations we live upon. They see and experience the gritty world and do their part to make it a better place. These men aren’t afraid to get down and dirty. To all our Blue Collar heroes out there, thank you! Without you we couldn’t… A major thank you to Delilah Devlin for collecting such an…

Kalissa Wayne: Happy Fathers Day

Kalissa Wayne: Happy Fathers Day

Today is Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to all those out there who do the job of a dad, whether you be male or female. My wish for you on this day is that you have the wisdom to teach your kids all they need to know, the patience to deal with them whether they are 2 or 20 and never ending love for them. As I think about my own dad today, I am saddened by the realization that…

Sukie Chapin: Mr. Big – The Science of Short Stories and Sex Toys (and a GIVEAWAY)

Sex toys are awesome. There I said it. I feel better now, having that out in the world – how ‘bout you? You know what else is awesome? Short stories. The kind you can curl up with just before bed without fear of pulling an all-nighter to finish. The kind that gets you to Happily Ever After before that morning cup of coffee goes cold. The kind that Delilah put together in Blue Collar. And I really like the idea…
