First, I want to thank you all again for your support during the last few days. I read your comments many times over the past week and your words were like a hug when I needed one most. I know that sounds pretty lame and as a writer I should be able to come up with something better, but it’s the truth. I’ll be lying low…laying low?…lying low for several more days. Do some quiet catching up, that sort of thing.
But as a segue into blogging again, I received some awesome news. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to announce it, but Charli and Kate are talking about it, so…Interstellar Sparks has been chosen to be in the next round of EC anthologies from Pocket (1/09, with Charli and Kate)! :boogie: There are two other authors on the list I’m especially wicked excited for, but I don’t think they’ve announced it, so…again with the not being sure we’re allowed to talk about this. :noevil:
So that means In the Spirit will be the only one of my stories not scheduled to be available or already available in print. (Unless you’re my cousin Patti—or (omg) one of my aunts—in which case Forever Again is the only book I’ve ever written, so therefore the only book you can read. :hide:)
Anyway, here’s the cover copy for Interstellar Sparks!:
An erotic futuristic Quickie
After watching a late night porn flick, Acelan Ambassador Ilyna is convinced a smoking hot electrician will fulfill her in ways a virtual reality partner cannot. Though sex with humans is prohibited, Ilyna thinks she can get away with it just this once.
Sparks fly when Ilyna pays human electrician Bryan Cameron a visit, and itâ€™s a house call heâ€™ll never forget. When he realizes the woman who short-circuited his brain and kept him up all night long is the missing Acelan ambassador, he has to do something to keep her from paying a horrible price for their passion.
But maybe hiding out in a sex club with a wildly libidinous alien wasnâ€™t one of his better ideasâ€¦
That’s awesome, Shan! :woot:
What nice news to be your first post back!
You’ve been missed. :hug:
Woot, Shan! :woot: Lay low as long as you need to. :hug:
Congrats on the anthology, that’s great news. Welcome back, we missed you. :nod:
Ok, I can see why your aunts better don’t find out about that book. :devil:
That is incredible news! Wahoo for you :boogie:
Fantastic news, Shan! *wiggle*
:cheer: and :hug: and :heart:
that about sums it up for me
I miss you!!!
