Who's laughing now?

People kept telling me it couldn't be done. "You can't write an erotic romance with clowns in it AND get it published!" Guess what, sports fans? I did just that! Whoo! Hoo! Hot damn! Noemi with Ocean's Mist Press gave me a helluva Christmas present today when I opened my e-mail and found a contract for my erotic romantic suspense called Silly Fears.

Now I did promise in a previous blog entry that I would reveal the slight twist in my story when I got a contract. The twist is that although there are clowns in the story, the story is not about clowns. (Sorry to those looking to read about clowns getting it on.) The real and true backdrop of the story has to do with voodoo. That's right. That sometimes controversial but always intriguing religion called voodoo. But admit it. Hearing something called clown erotica got you thinking, didn't it?

I'm already thinking about what I want on the cover. It's got to incorporate voodoo, hot sex and clowns. Hmmm, gotta think on that one. While I am, you all enjoy this video from the rock group called Godsmack. The song is called (what else?) "Voodoo". *LOL*

Merry Christmas to you all! I know I'm going to be drinking a little extra eggnog over this news!

Stay sexy!

For good times and bad times...

...I'll be on your side forever more!!! THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR. No, I'm not doing a bad impersonation of Stevie Wonder. My full-length contemporary interracial erotic romance called That's What Friends Are For has been released today through Liquid Silver Books!

Just because I know you'll ask :) here's a blurb:

Can best friends sleep together and still be friends in the morning?

A former high school cheerleader and a former high school nerd have grown up together and are now best friends. Ned is attracted to Fiona, but thinks she’ll always see him as just a big nerd. Fiona is attracted to Ned, but figures a brainiac like him would want an equally intelligent woman by his side.

So Fiona cooks up a plan that would get Ned a potential promotion at work and get her a job that she thinks will please Ned. In between the pretend relationship and the real one, sparks fly. When the truth Fiona has been hiding is revealed, will their friendship be strong enough to hold them together? Or will this be the end of the friendship that, according to their friends, should have never lasted this long in the first place?

As always, you can read an excerpt on my website or you can read it on the Liquid Silver Books site. So tell me. Can you have sex with your friend and still be friends the next day or is it impossible?

Stay sexy,

The End...and the beginning!

I'm sure you all have heard me lament over and over and over again how I've been working on the Silly Fears story. I finally buckled down this week and I finished it! Whoo! Hoo! I sent the synopsis and the first 3 chapters to Ocean's Mist Press. Keep your fingers crossed for me. It's more suspense than I've ever written before and it has an interesting twist. I keep calling it a clown erotica because it's just quick and easy to call it that. But if I call it what it should be called, it might give away the twist. If it gets accepted, I'll let you in on the secret.

So I know what you all may be thinking. "Hey, Bridget, now that you finished that story you can relax." I wish! I'm now starting a Christmas story (yeah, yeah, I know) called "Peace, Love and Understanding." Hey, what's so funny about peace, love and understanding? Sorry, couldn't resist. *LOL* In case you're scratching your head about the title, I stole it (quite liberally) from an old Elvis Costello song. I have a thing with songs, don't I? Fascination Street, That's What Friends Are For, "Peace, Love and Understanding." Hmm, problem or niche? I haven't decided yet.

Have you all noticed? I did a little upgrade on my website. I have to do that at least once a week. Go ahead. Look around. Sit down and get comfortable. I'll let you. *LOL* The next time I upgrade the site I'll add excerpts from C-A-I-N and A-B-E-L and my 2 shorts for Midnight Showcase.

Okay, I've played long enough. Time to get to work. I have a book to finish in one day! Agh!

Stay sexy,

I've only just begun to fight...

Actually it's not a fight...unless you count the 3 of us: me, myself and I. I'm midway (love that word) through my edits for Fascination Street. This is the first time I've edited something this long. As I reread the story, there's so much I want to add and change now. It's a writer thing. We're always trying to one-up ourselves. *LOL* But I'm hoping in the end I have a story that will be both provocative and appealing. If not, just don't tell me. My weak, little heart can't take it. *LOL*

Other than that, things are going spiffy! Once I'm done with the edits, I'm hoping, God, I'm hoping, I can FINALLY put Silly Fears to rest. No, I'm not talking about my own phobias. I'm talking about my clown erotica I've been working on it seems like forever. I did put a big dent in it and I'm hoping by week ending it should all be done. Then there's the revision period. That should go well though. I don't mind revising as much as I do getting the story down. Revising to me is like decorating the house after it's been built. Then I'm going to try something that'll probably kill me: a book in a day. Gasp! We'll see how it goes.

And speaking of going, I have to head to work. Blah!

Stay sexy,
