Most of you may have remembered my contemporary interracial romance called "Public Domain" that was through Ocean's Mist Press. Well now it's with Whispers Publication and they've created a new cover for it. Take a gander to the left. Great, huh? Not that I didn't like my original cover. I just think this one is sexier. I love that she's biting his lip. Purrrr! I don't have a release date yet but, of course, as soon as I know, you'll know.
Just to bring you all up to speed, the story is about a couple that loves to have risky sex in public places. The only thing they don't know about each other is their names. She wants to keep the relationship as is, fun sex in different locations. He wants to know her more. Will his persistance push her away or force her to take their private relationship public?
I'm not as brazen as the characters in this story. Sometimes I wish I were. But it's fun to imagine it, and even more fun to write it! I can't wait for this story to come out again. And I'm crossing fingers and toes that it makes it in to their multi-author anthology. Looking at the cover, it reminds me of the beach scene in the story. I won't say more than that. If you want to know what I'm talking about, you're going to have to get the book!
Okay, gotta get back to work.

After waiting almost a year, my sequel to "Adam and E-V-E" called C-A-I-N and A-B-E-L will be published by the end of this month. I can hardly wait.
The story continues after my first novella, "Adam and E-V-E" about a cyborg who learns a thing or two about love. This story centers on Dr. Sonjie Tuumlar, the doctor who, with Dr. Lars Urlean, help create the cyborgs. Sonjie is back on Mars testing and training two new cyborgs, Combat Artillery Invasion Neutralizer and Aerial Battle Executive Leader, or C-A-I-N and A-B-E-L, respectively. Sonjie doesn't want to make the same mistake as Lars and that is to cross the line and have sex with her creations. However with the strong pull she feels toward the men, she's finding the line is blurred and the temptation is clear.
This is my first real foray into writing M/M sex so be warned. The book does contain that. However, if you like the threesome--and then some---scenes from Fascination Street, then you'll enjoy this book.
So while you all enjoy that, I'll be working on Love My Way. I'm already starting to fall in love with my hero, Eagan Morton, and I love, love, love this story. I'm getting the same feeling with it as I did when I was writing Fascination Street. I just hope you all dig it too.
Gotta get to work.

But I couldn't just stop there. Oh no! Lately I've been on this big 80's jag. No, I haven't broken out the leg-warmers and off-the-shoulder sweaters yet. It's coming! I purchased a 2-disc set of new wave 80's tunes. One song on there is my favorite, Psychedelic Furs' "Love My Way". As I listened to the song and thought about it, I said to myself, "Man, that's such a Dom song." Then the wheels started spinning. How could I write a story around that? Then I got it. Before I reveal too much, I'll just tell you that the story is going to Loose Id and hopefully it'll be out in a few months. And I'll say this. For those of you who liked Fascination Street and the BDSM aspects of Corporate Seduction, you'll enjoy Love My Way. It's the ensemble characters like Fascination Street along with some hot BDSM action. I can't wait for this story to come out!
To hear the song that inspired my story, click here.
Now I have some work to do so I have to go. Enjoy the tunes. 80's rock!

Oh, and Laura Bacchi (middle) and Shara Lanel (right) were there too. *LOL* Hey, I had to use all of my means to sell books! This picture is from our group signing, Wicked Words, at The Love Shack in Newport News, Virginia. We had an absolutely wonderful time. Thanks to Karen with The Love Shack for allowing us space in the store for a few hours while we sold our smut. *LOL* Actually I'm the smut peddler. The other two authors are quite gifted.
And speaking of gifted authors, big, huge, honking congratulations to Laura Bacchi who won Liquid Silver Books' Molten Silver contest with her entry Topping Tora. I've read a portion of this book. Trust me. It's hot! I have no shame in admitting that Laura Bacchi is the kind of author I avoid reading her books before I write. It's because she's so damn good I always feel I can't measure up to her. I'll contend with anyone that Laura writes the best sexual tension of anyone out there. And her sex scenes are incredible. She's the author to watch. Trust me. And I'm really thrilled that her book is an interracial romance! Whoo! Hoo!
Right now I'm working on a proposal for New Concepts Publishing. I'm into chapter 3. Keep your fingers crossed that the editor digs it enough to contract it. Sistagirl needs some money!
Okay, I have lots to do today so I really have to go. More pics and news later on.

I was REALLY hoping to have four new releases before I went to the Romantic Times Convention a couple of weeks ago. I got close. Two works were released either before I left for the convention or the day I got there. They were "Foolish Games" through Erotique Press and Silly Fears through Ocean's Mist Press. And one was just released (albeit quietly) a couple of days ago. That's my short erotic story, "Suburbia" through Phaze. The couple in the story is married and they have sex with each other. Hard to believe coming from me, huh? *LOL* The next release should be C-A-I-N and A-B-E-L, my long-awaited (at least by me) sequel to "Adam and E-V-E". I can hardly wait to see the cover. Stacey L. King, publisher and basic Jill-of-all-trades, did such a great job with my "Adam and E-V-E" cover.
I have some other great news, too! I just signed my contract with Midnight Showcase to not only do the sequel to Corporate Seduction but to make this into a Corporate Trilogy! That's right, folks. Three books surrounding big business, BDSM and sex! I had no idea the publishers wanted a trilogy. I knew they wanted a sequel. And I have the working titles already. Corporate Desires, this will be Madame Z's story, and Corporate Needs. I'm thinking of making this Princess's story. For those who have read the book, don't you want to know what Princess does for work now?
I also just signed a contract for one of my novellas to appear in an anthology called Distant Lovers through Reality Press! My story is called "Service Recall". It's about a newly-divorced African-American woman who, by chance, has plumbing work done by an old high school crush. Or was it by chance? Hmmm. I'll never tell. Moohaahaahaa!
Okay, kiddies, Mama's gotta get to work. I owe stories to 4 different publishers. It's nice to be wanted.

Just a week before I head out to the Romantic Times Convention in Daytona Beach, Florida, I'm told by three of my publishers that they'll be releasing my work either right before or the day of the convention! Count 'em, folks. It'll be FOUR works out! Erotique Press will be releasing "Foolish Games." Have you all seen that cover? Just look to your right and stop drooling. *LOL* The story is about two friends who do this sort of sexual game of "Truth or Dare" every year, only one friend is getting sort of tired of playing and wants to have the real thing. Don't you just hate it when things get all serious on you?
My next release will be my short story with Phaze called "Suburbia." Now have you all seen that cover? Since it's a shorty and a non-theme Phaze work, it gets the standard short story cover and not a special cover. But I actually like it because the duo on the cover does remind me of the characters in the story. The hero, Jason, is African-American and the heroine is White. The story is about a woman who is afraid she and her husband have lost that special spark in their marriage and she tries ANYTHING to get it back again. I guess you can say this is my version of "Desperate Housewives." Don't gasp in horror. I still haven't seen an episode of that show. I know. I know. Just me and the other people who live under rocks. I get it.
The third release may be coming out Monday, May 15th. You all have read about this book before. It's what I've been calling my clown erotica story. No, the clowns don't have sex. I promise you. It's called "Silly Fears" and it's about a woman who has a fear of clowns. She meets a man who has swept her off of her feet but who is a constant prankster. When strange things start happening around her, she wonders if he's the cause. Don't you hate when that happens? When the cute guy you've been doing could be doing you harm? Always the case, isn't it? The best guys are either married or prank-pulling murderers. Agh!
The last potential release is my long-awaited (okay, maybe just by me) follow-up to my very first published work ever called "Adam and E-V-E." The sequel is called C-A-I-N and A-B-E-L. It's another science fiction tale, this time about the doctor that helped create E-V-E. She's been left in charge to make sure two more cyborgs like E-V-E that she named C-A-I-N and A-B-E-L are fit to fight in their next war. Only if the two weren't so damned sexy! She has a hard time letting them go. When the book comes out, you'll see why.
Anyway, my publisher said that she would literally format my story on the plane ride to Florida and burn disks in her hotel room at the convention. Is that wild or what? Sorry, folks. I don't have the cover for this one yet otherwise I would put it up. I'm hoping it's just as great as "Adam and E-V-E." I still love looking at that cover.
I find it amazing that I'm sort of coming full circle. Last year at my very first Romantic Times Convention, I had my first book come out the day before I flew out to St. Louis, Missouri. And now the sequel to that book is coming out during this year's convention also. I'll say it, folks. It's been a very good year!
For those going to the convention, I hope to see you! I'll be signing as Bridget Midway so I'm hoping to be smack dab in between Cait Miller and Liddy Midnight. Can't wait to see Liddy again. She's a hoot and a half!

I'm just tickled to have not one but two books on sale at Amazon.com! I feel like a real author, angst and all. Now if I could only quit that pesky day job, I would be set. Then again, I would need to be rolling in some dough to do that. No, I'm not talking about literally rolling in dough. You all are some sick monkeys!
Why you sit back and laugh, enjoy some excerpts on my site.

Yesterday I got the print copies of Fascination Street. What a great-looking book! I love the size, color, binding, everything! Even I cracked open the cover and started reading one. *LOL* I'm telling you, folks, don't wait to get your copy. It's 376 pages of fun (and sex - Hee! Hee!). I can't wait to sign copies at the Romantic Times Convention this year. I'm even trying to work a deal where a local adult toy store called The Pink Banana Boutique to start carrying my books. It's baby steps but hey, we all have to start somewhere, right?
Right now I'm in the middle of working on a novella. I'm hoping to have that done this weekend. By then I'm sure I'll have the 2nd wave of edits to do for Silly Fears, my clown erotica. I love calling it that. Then who knows what I'll do next. Moohaahaahaa!
As always, stay sexy!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You don't know what it means to me to see something like that. Of course I saved the newsletter. I need to print it and frame it to show that at one time I had a best seller!
Tuesday, January 31, 2006
The wait is over! Hey, haven't I said that line before? Oh yeah, less than a week ago! Yikes! I didn't know Fascination Street, my release through Venus Press, and Corporate Seduction through Midnight Showcase would be released so close to each other. I haven't even gotten a review back yet for Fascination Street. But it's all good. The back-to-back releases make it seem like I'm a prolific writer, which I'm not. I swear I'm not. Just the luck of the draw.
I am very happy with this release for several reasons. First of all, you, the readers, have been asking for the release of this book for several months. I'm glad it's out there for you all to enjoy. I'm also thrilled that this is my very first book that's offered in print. You know what that means. Yep, I'll have print copies to sign when I go to the Romantic Times convention in May. If you're there, come on by and see me. I'll be the one behind those great looking pecs on the cover. Purrr!
Okay, I have to get back to work. I never rest.

I am dancing on a cloud, skipping on air, dancing with the pool boy, any analogy you want to use to describe how absolutely elated I am that my full-length interracial erotica (or erotic romance) Fascination Street has been released. Now I know what you're saying. "Why did Bridget say, 'or erotic romance'? Doesn't she know what she wrote?" Of course I do, silly! The story is about a couple that moves to a small cul-de-sac where everyone swings...and I don't mean on a swing set either. Well, I guess I could have included that scene in the book, but I'm digressing. There is a romance of sorts in the book but it's not the traditional kind.
Anyway, I'm so excited that my book is out. Now I'll have to wait and see how the sales are and what the reviewers say. *gulp* Someone hold my hand.

To catch you all up to speed, my novel through Ocean's Mist Press called Silly Fears is about a woman who is deathly afraid of, you guessed it, clowns. She thought she was over the fear until her cousin, the owner of a traveling circus, brings a clown act to her kindergarten classroom. Little does she know her dream man is underneath the garish clown makeup. Or will he be her nightmare?
The symbol on the upper left hand corner of the cover is an actual voodoo symbol. Don't ask me what it means. I'm just telling you what my cover artist told me. Okay, now listen to that Godsmack song called "Voodoo" and look at this cover. I guarantee you'll grab the person next to you and won't let him/her go. Hey! That's an idea! Gotta go, folks. I have someone I need to grab. "Honey, save me from that awful clown!"

Cover artist Jinger Heaston knocked another one out of the park! She did my cover for "Public Domain" through Ocean's Mist Press, and now look at my spiffy new cover for my full-length contemporary interracial erotic romance called Corporate Seduction through Midnight Showcase. For some of you die-hard fans out there who have been eagerly waiting the arrival of Interpersonal Skills through the same publisher, don't worry. Corporate Seduction and Interpersonal Skills are the same story. The publisher, my editor and I changed the title to entice you even more. *wink*
I'm assuming this book will still be out in February 2006. I've finished the edits. As you can see, the cover is done. Jinger has to work on the back cover but that's all. I guess Jewel (the Midnight Showcase publisher) will have to do some administrative stuff first (ISBN, etc.) then it'll be good to go. I can't wait for this book to be released. AND it will be in ebook and print for those of you who prefer your books in print.
Okay, I have some writing to do. But don't let me stop you from staring at the cover model's pecks and abs. Keep drooling away and I'll keep writing.

Some old habits die hard, don't they? There are some habits I want to keep, maintain. I'm going to keep writing and being as prolific as possible. Writing makes me feel good. It's also good to see readers respond to me. You all fuel me. For that, I thank you.
So what did you all resolve in the new year? Lose weight? Quit smoking? More sex? Share. I won't tell. *S*

Literary Nymphs has Phaze as Publisher of the Month for January 2006. Not a bad way to start the year, huh? In with the profile, they have a poll on who's your favorite Phaze author. Come on. I don't ask for much, do I? Just throw a dog a bone. Please? http://www.geocities.com/literarynymphs/featured_publisher_Jan_06 Actually it looks like it's between me, Robin Slick and Eden Bradley. But the month isn't over yet so we'll have to wait to see what happens.
Okay, I'm off to work. Blah! Oh! Before I forget. Go to my website, http://www.BridgetMidway.com/ and check out my Contests page. I'm running a 2nd contest for Fascination Street called "How Well Do You Know the Neighbors"? And you thought pop quizzes only happened in school. Hey, at least this is open book, er, website. *S*
