I am a little behind schedule this week, so the Sunday Six for me this time is from a WIP fantasy story that I am really hoping to complete before the end of the year. Comments and thoughts are always welcome. Thanks for stopping by
Concentrating with her one good eye, she [Ana] looked around the chamber. A single torch near the heavy metal door gave the chamber its only light. The large stone room contained four rotted and stained mattresses, one in each corner. The rest of the room lay vacant, except for a small wooden table on wheels a dozen feet from where she’d been chained, and the squeaking rodents scurrying from dark corner to dark corner. Ana strained to see what the cart held, but it was on her left and she couldn’t make out more than its basic shape. In the absence of facts, her mind raced with sinister possibilities.

ACE in the Hole:
Twenty year old, Marley Drake is smokin’ hot and she knows it. In search of her next Sugar Daddy, Marley hits a trendy downtown bar with her best friend, Amy. What she finds may just be the jackpot–if she can get past the fact that he’s at least three times her age and a bit creepy. She realizes Professor VonHessen is much more than he appears when he introduces her to his robotics masterpiece, ACE; an anatomically correct android built for sex.
ACE in the Hole is available from Smashwords.com and will soon also be available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble websites.
I’ve decided to take one of my erotic short stories and self publish it with Smashwords. I even dug out my old copy of Paint Shop Pro and downloaded some images to work with from iStockphoto.com. I haven’t done graphics work in a while. I have to say, I really enjoyed it.
Anyway, here is my six sentences– from ACE in the Hole, my soon to be published erotic e-book.
The unlikely pair stepped out into the brisk night air. A sleek black limo pulled up to the curb, as if the driver knew when they would emerge.
Marley lifted a brow. She didn’t know many geeks with stretch limos. A tingle ran along her flesh. Jackpot.
So, I did it. I got out the imaging software and dusted off my account at istockphoto.com and came up with a cover for my erotic piece – ACE in the Hole.
What do you think?
Just subbed this story out. Will have to see if she flies or falls. This is from an erotic story, so may not be suitable for young readers.
Always interested in your thoughts.
Marley let her hand slide across the seat until her fingertips caressed the fabric of the professor’s pants. She walked her fingernails up his thigh and gave his wretched, limp cock a light squeeze. Marley moved her glass to his until they met with a soft clink. “To a night of passion.”
The professor chuckled and winked at her. “Ambitious little gem, aren’t you?”
The Glass Man by Jocelyn Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a fantastic ride!
Lila Gray is snarky, sarcastic and ballsy. A winning combination for any leading lady to my thinking. A lover of both fairy tales and fantasy, The Glass Man delivered in spades. Ms. Adams gives us a wonderfully detailed glimpse into her dystopian world while still holding true to the established lore surrounding the fae and their societal structures.
Lila’s “hunter” and nemesis, Parthalan is sexy, dark and devious. *licks lips* I guy you really hate to love. While his pain loving sidekick, Rourke is the perfect blend of powerful foe and twisted lunatic. I think he just might be my favorite character in the novel, aside from Lila, of course.
Toss in Lila’s love interest, Liam–a brooding farmer with a secret–and let the sparks fly.
I try not to toss in story details when I write my reviews to avoid spoiling anything for the readers. You will just have to get this one for yourself to see how it all comes together. Suffice to say, I loved this novel and highy recommend it for anyone. It is a must read for any lover of fantasy or romance.
About the only negative I could mention was the fact that it came to an end. If I didn’t know there were at least two more Lila Gray novels to come from Jocelyn Adams, I might just be upset about that.

Mile 81 by Stephen King
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
At $5.99 for the ebook download, I really expected a novel instead of a short story. I can’t even call it a novella — it was that short.
The story was interesting and I did enjoy the read, but I have to say it was missing some of the dark sparks I expect from Mr. King. Not so much a disappointment for me, as just *meh, it was okay*
Hoping the novel due out in November has more of what I read Stephen King novels for, originality and dark twist you dont see coming.

For my first Six Sentence Sunday on the new blog, I thought I would toss out six sentences from my published short story, Blood and Fire. The story was part of the 2011 DFE Quarterly publication, Sinisterotica: A Collection of Erotic Horror.
Just a little something to heat you up on a chilly Sunday morning. (I’d rate it a PG at worst — so safe enough for general audiences)
Bartholomew patted Kevin on the shoulder. “She’s in good hands, my friend. Come by on Monday, and I’ll take a look at your prospectus.” He reached up and hooked a finger in the ring of my collar, yanking me toward him.
I stumbled, falling against his hard chest, the skin to skin contact searing my flesh. My eyes jerked up to meet his, my breath hitched. God, I want you.
