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…

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?

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,…

T.D. Rudolph: Lust in Space (Contest)

When reading through the submissions for Pirates, I looked for stories with different flavors of heroes and timeframes. I didn’t want all Regency-era Jack Sparrows. So, when I found T.D.’s story about a hero who’s a thief in space, I thought, yeah! Add the fact the heroine is kick-ass, the tone of the story is a little snarky, and the action scenes are fun, and I knew I had a winner! Enjoy this snippet! And remember, yesterday’s gift-card prize is…

Better Sex in 50 Years?

Better Sex in 50 Years?

Hello to you on this wonderful Friday! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Liz Ashworth. I write scandalous stories. I occasionally write something that’s not scandalous but who cares? About twenty years ago, I had this idea for a story. At the time, my life centered around raising children and keeping up with my job. My idea? I wanted to create a world where women could buy sex. Go to a safe place, nice opulent surroundings, review the lineup, and…
