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…

Kimberly Lithe: Burning Stars (Contest)

Kimberly Lithe: Burning Stars (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Keri Richards! *~*~*~* My writing journey… Fantasy, sci-fi and supernatural stories have been my literary escape for as long as I can remember being able to read. When I was in secondary school my friend recommended Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon. This was the first taste of my new addiction. Adult paranormal romance. I then read every paranormal, supernatural, and urban fantasy romance book I could get my parents to buy for me. Then it was historical romance,…

January George: Captive Desire

January George: Captive Desire

I love to hear about other people’s writing process. My critique partner, the fabulous Jayce Ellis, who is also featured in this anthology, is a planner and a plotter. She lays out everything, does character interviews, story arcs, character development. Basically, she builds the foundation, then the scaffolding, and then builds her story on that very solid structure. I, on the other hand, am a sculptor. And a bit of a bad one. I take a giant hunk of rock…

Lana Sloan: Perinacht

Can you remember when you fell in love with your favorite trope? Think back. Maybe way back. Was there a movie or a book that just clicked something on inside your brain, and now, if you ever see a premise in that vein, it’s nearly impossible to deny its seductive pull? I’ve always been a sucker for a heroine in disguise, whether she’s trying to gain hidden knowledge, or ensure her own survival. To me, a woman dressing as a…

Alicia Aringdale: Rough Seas — The Path to Love is Rarely Smooth (and a Giveaway!)

Ahoy there, maties! Since Pirates: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology came out I have been blown away by the hard work my fellow authors and Delilah have put into this book. To see my own story of hard-won love on the high seas next to so many other great ones has been my honor. My story, “Rough Seas”, is about British commander Isaac Rateliff and his tempestuous, ill-advised desire for the pirate captain Tristan De Leon. I wrote this story…

Genevive Chamblee: Cargo

Happy Sunday! Today’s a very special day. On February 7, 2018, Pirates: Boys Behaving Badly Anthology #3 was released.

Jasper is the sexy captain of the Fauna, which he sails with Ian, his brother and head engineer, and Gage, his cousin and navigator, along with the rest of his crew. The trio have been pirating the seas since…

JOYCE PALMER: MY PIRATE LOVE FROM PIRATES (A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY #3) AND A GIVEAWAY

JOYCE PALMER: MY PIRATE LOVE FROM PIRATES (A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY #3) AND A GIVEAWAY

Ahoy, ship mates! Congratulations to Delilah and all the talented authors of this fabulous collection. It’s an honor to be among you. One of my hubby’s favorite mantras since our dating days, “Doesn’t matter where you get your appetite as long as you eat at home,” has given me oodles of permission—over the past forty years—to openly appreciate the sex appeal of many a human male. And, of course, the consent runs both ways. Because what’s fair for the goose,…

Tricia Schneider: To Kiss a Pirate

Tricia Schneider: To Kiss a Pirate

I grew up watching movies like Peter Pan, Treasure Island, Captain Blood, The Princess Bride and Blackbeard’s Ghost, which instilled a fascination and love of all things pirate. What could be more exciting than a swashbuckling hero, unafraid of living dangerously and sailing the high-seas facing incredible adventures? My imagination soars with possibilities whenever it comes to pirates, but Captain Hawk and Henrietta in “To Kiss a Pirate” were born from a dream I had of a woman disguised as…
