I’m taking it easy today. Too many days of thinking of blog posts has fried my circuits. So I’m going to take the easy way out and talk about my upcoming short story release.
Immortal Game (Olympus, Inc.) is coming out in Evernight’s Keyboards and Kink Anthology on June 8. Here’s a little snippet of what the anthology is about:
A night at home on the computer doesn’t have to be boring…
Feel like chatting? Or maybe doing something more daring? The stranger reaching out across cyberspace could be a creepy pervert, but what if he wasn’t? What if he’s a vampire, the sexy boy next door, or even your gorgeous boss? Thirteen tales explore all the delicious possibilities when online relationships lead to sexy encounters away from the keyboard.
My offering in the anthology is based in the same world as Immortal Love, although none of the characters in that book appears in this story. This was something I decided to write the day before I submitted it. I know, I know, procrastination much? But once I figured out who my characters were, my fingers flew across the keyboard. That was the fastest 9k words I’ve ever written and I hope I did their story justice.
Here’s the blurb I wrote for the story:
Iris Argyris is tired of rainbows and purity. Unfortunately, as the Greek goddess of rainbows, she can’t do anything about that part of her life, but she can change the other. Meeting with the mortal she’s fallen in love with via an online role-playing game is one way to end her streak of purity and innocence. Although she’s known him for five years, meeting her beloved Thunderkiss doesn’t turn out the way she thought it would because he’s none other than a coworker at Olympus, Inc. with a dangerous reputation. A man who’d never looked at her twice.
Briareus Colonomos is the Greek god of storms and one of the original giants. Rude, crude, and not quite handsome, he’s spent thousands of years trying to find a woman who’d see beneath the surface. When he meets Pain-Bow Brite online, he thinks he’s finally found someone who can care for him. It doesn’t matter that she’s mortal. He wants her and he’ll have her. Except she isn’t mortal at all. She’s goody two-shoes goddess, Iris. A woman too pure and innocent for the likes of him. Or is she? He’ll find out and if she’s half the bad girl as her online character is, he’ll have to keep her forever.
Happy Thursday, folks!
Yeah, it really is Monday, isn’t it?
