Thursday Throbs 12-8

With cold weather settling in for a bit, and the first snows of the season falling, it’s time to heat things up.

I love well-done tattoos – the kind that accentuate and showcase both the ink and the body through placement, shape, flow and color.

 

I don’t like jeans very much right now.

Oooohhh – Pretttttyyyy

Some tats are just… lickable! Mmmm!

Dragons. ‘Nuff said.

Now where did I put that chocolate sauce? …

Share some of YOUR favorite skin art!

Come back next week for more sexy ink, and bring your own to share.

Now I have a sudden craving for chocolate sauce!

NaNoWriMo FTW!

Wheew!!! It’s finally OVER! All over the world, NaNoers are frantically copying their novels, pasting them into the wordcount validator, and hitting submit. With hard work, and a little luck, aching fingers and worn-out keyboards, some of them managed to write 50,000 words in 30 days.

I really didn’t think I was going to make it this year. Last year, I passed 50k on the 18th, and completed the entire first draft by the 30th. Not this year. I only passed 50k around noon today, and I still have a lot of work to finish this first draft. I was lucky to get near 50k, let alone pass it, but I managed 53,094 words this year.

As a result, I get to do this:

My project this year was to pick up the stalled first draft of Blood Dragon II. With luck, I’ll manage to finish the draft, and complete the revisions on Blood Dragon by the end of December, and get them both moving on to the next step in the road to publication. Not to mention, there’s another Blood Dragon story waiting in outline form, demanding to be written. It’ll have to wait until these two are on the way, though. 😀

Some of you know I occasionally do reviews and blog posts for GraveTells.com. All during November, GraveTells is hosting a Discussion Series The Hero Chronicles. Each week will focus on a different aspect of the books we love: Heroes, Heroines, Villains, and World/Setting. And each week, one commenter will be selected to receive some random swag. At the end of the month a Gift Card for the Book Depository will be given away!

This week, check out my post, A Hero To Die For, and tell us all about your favorite  Hero, and the qualities that make him perfect. Your comment might just be the winning one! Then come back each week for a new segment. See you there!

Six Sentence Sunday

The official Six Sentence Sunday is taking a break this week, but will be back next week. I’ve decided to go ahead and post my Six this week anyway. Partly because I’m a creature of habit, and partly because there might be one person out there looking forward to seeing what my characters are up to. So, with further ado…

This week’s Six is from the new beginning of BLOOD DRAGON, and immediately follow last week’s Six, which, in turn followed the Six from 10-9.  Jaden’s kidnapper gives her one last chance to give him what he wants.

Smiling his tight smile, Redinger approached Jaden’s cell. “Well, you’ve had time to compose your thoughts. Are you going to give me the names of the other vampires, or do I get to pull the information out of you, bit by bit?”

“I’m not telling you anything.” Determination made her voice strong. These humans would kill her anyway, as soon as they had the information.

Six Sentence Sunday

This week’s Six is from BLOOD DRAGON II, which is really needing its own title. Ardrianna is searching for evidence of whoever broke into King’s apartment. Difficult when King’s body keeps sidetracking her. The worst part? He knows she wants him for a fact. Weredragons, both male and female, emit a distinctive scent whenever they are sexually aroused. So she can’t hide it.

King must be wondering if her arousal scent meant she would be receptive to his advances. In a word, no. She had to keep telling herself that. “We need to finish this up as quickly as we can manage, and get out of here.”

He nodded, his left hand absently rubbing his thigh, distracting her. “Okay. Tell me what you want me to do.”

Lucky for her, as badly as King wants her, he’s being a gentleman. Despite knowing exactly what she wants, he isn’t pressing the issue. Yet.

Six Sentence Sunday

This week’s Six is from BLOOD DRAGON II. King is trying to convince Ardrianna to allow him to kiss her. He promises that if she doesn’t like it, and can honestly say she doesn’t want more, he’ll back off trying to seduce her, and let her do her job. Then it occurs to him that she might be involved with someone else.

Ardrianna couldn’t stop the burst of laughter. “No, not hardly.” Missed opportunity. Telling him there was someone else would have put a stop to this whole ludicrous thing.

Before she could say anything more, he pulled her closer. “Then let me kiss you.”

Of course, once he starts kissing her, she can’t resist him.
