Conversations with my Editor

It’s no secret to anyone who’s known me any length of time–I love to tease my editor at Loose Id. Today, because I was bored and restless and itchy because I can’t take meds before my lung function test tomorrow, I sent her this:

Me: Hee hee. If Julian was real, he’d so kill me:

There was a new layer of muscle on his back and, when Leo explored farther, his ass too.

“How much time do you spend at the gym?”

Julian paused in his ravaging of Leo’s body. “Shut up. It’s not like this job doesn’t need it.” He nibbled his way down Leo’s jaw, pushing Leo’s head back with the pressure, then licked a tickling, arousing line down his neck. “Just think what that muscle can do for you tonight.”

“Fuck,” Leo whispered, and Julian laughed.

“Damn right.” But he was no more immune to the heat between them than Leo was. He arched and rubbed himself against Leo, panting in his ear, and the motion seemed as involuntary as the low groan that shivered against Leo’s skin. “Unph,” he muttered, and grabbed the side of Leo’s ass. His breath shuddered out of him. “No, I’m supposed to go slow. It’s Valentine’s.” He growled and buried his face in Leo’s chest. “This was supposed to be romantic.”

Slow would have been nice, but Julian wasn’t even twenty-five yet. Leo doubted he was capable of slow, not until the edge was taken off. “You brought flowers and wine and fancy chocolate. I’d say we’ve covered the romance part of it. To hell with slow. We’ve got all night, if you want to do slow later.”

“Yeah?”

“Yeah.” And to prove his point, Leo rolled over on top of Julian and kissed him like he was still twenty, and not looking forty square in the eye.

——-
Some possible pronoun confusion there, but poor Leo.

And what I got back from her:
DUDE! … Omg, why don’t they stock emergency makeout boys in (nameless coffee shop where she likes to hang out and tease the boys)? Fucking toppy Julian. Omg, fucking take-me-baby Leo. Omg.
——-
So, yeah. I think I pushed some buttons there. 😀

But you’re all gonna hate me for what I’m doing to Dave. #sorry #notsorry

Flesh Market is here!


And luckily I have class today, and an assignment to finish, so I absolutely don’t have time to keep hitting refresh. Nope. Not a bit. *click, click*

In completely other news, I’m working on the sequel to Flesh Market, and the sequel to Bite Me Tender. Hopefully within the year for both of them.

And My Second Excerpt in as Many Days!

Sex-Scene-Banner-copy This one is from Flesh Market, the first in the Bodies and Souls series, which was written in response to Loose Id’s Double Lives call. And there’s more double dealing and not telling the whole story going on in that book–it was exhausting just keeping track of who knew what. No, it’s not out, or up for pre-order. In fact, it’s still in the hands of the editor, going through the acceptance (or not) process. So, yes, I’m jumping the gun here a little bit, especially since, if they do accept it, it probably won’t be out until 2016. But you can probably tell I’m a little excited about this story. It’s the most complicated thing I think I’ve ever written, and will likely get more complicated as it goes through edits. 😀 Fun times!

So click on over here, read the excerpts, and pick the one you like the best. Even if it isn’t mine.
