My Sexy Saturday: Their Sexy thoughts

There’s a million ways lovers think about each other. Sometimes it’s in frustration, sometimes it’s with regret, sometimes it’s with anger…but underneath it all…there is love. 

From Crossroads, by Jimmy Gillentine

Angela has been searching for her mysterious lover ever since the night he protected her from criminals by transforming into a creature like none she'd ever seen, caring little for his monstrous form. It matters only that he is the man she loves. Her search leads her far from her hometown, a trial not only of her love, but of the very meaning of right and wrong, of hunter and prey. Angela's real danger is seeking Andrew even as she is hunted by the true monsters of the world: her own kind.

Your Seven Sexy Paragraphs.  Welcome to Angela's Nightmare.

Angela looked around the forest clearing. She had been searching for hours in this forest,
trying to find the one thing her heart desired. Just as the sun began to set, she found him. Andrew
stood with his back to her, nude at the edge of the clearing. His long black hair flowed in the breeze,
his muscles cut and defined just as she remembered them. She ran over to him and grabbed him
from behind in a tight hug. She held him tighter and kissed his back, and sighed as she felt his
hands over hers.

“Andrew, I found you.” She kissed his back again. “Please, never leave me again.”

A low growl came deep from within Andrew’s chest. The grip on her hands grew tighter and
pain shot up her arms as he pushed her away. When he turned around, she saw the dark red eyes
of the Beast looking down at her. Andrew’s mouth opened, revealing rows of sharp jagged teeth
that belonged to his true form.

“Why do you chase after me?” Andrew growled as his body continued to change. “Stay away
from me!”

Angela stood in front of the Beast, and his grip was like steel as he hoisted her into the air. She
felt the monster’s hot breath on her face while his jaws opened to bite down.

“Andrew!” she screamed. “I love you! All of you.”

“You can’t love a monster!” the Beast roared as his jaws came down on her neck.

We are pleased to announce the updated, upgrade and new edition of Jimmy Gillentine's Crossroads.

Crossroads was one of the first books Inkstained Succubus put out, and Jimmy was part of our learning experience. We learned a lot doing his book, and more after we did it. So we have re-issued it, with better editing (hopefully no one will accuse us of ADDING typos this time) and cover art that matches The Beast Within.

The Beast Within introduces us to Andrew, a mysterious bouncer, and Angela, a waitress. Angela slowly breaks through Andrew's icy isolation. But when they are in jeopardy from the local drug gang, she learns what he truly is: a monster. Andrew gives up his human life and vanished. In Crossroads, Angela searches for her missing lover, but she's not the only one on his trail. The government wants the Beast as their newest weapon.

If you like your paranormal romance with a side of monsters, give this a try!

A Dozen Ways to Make Your Editor Tear Out Her Hair

Hello ducks!

We're back from the holidays. They were exceptionally difficult this year, as the terrifying Matriarch of your Captain's family finally hit her expiration date and went to that Big Air Harborage in the Sky on Dec 15. So, we've been docked up near Possum Trot, sorting out the remnants of a life.

But we're back in the office now and hard at work on many many things.

Royalty statements went out last night (Monday). Payment goes out tomorrow.

So today, in a lighter vein, we're talking about ways to make your editor tear our her hair.  This is tongue in cheek, but only sort of.

A Dozen Ways to Make Your Editor Tear Out Her Hair

1) Don't read the call. At all. Just send something, anything. So what if they ask for m/m BDSM? You've got a hot pegging story and that's kind of the same thing. It's kinky, that works.

2) Don't proofread. That's what editors are for.

3) Homophones? Who cares about those confusing things? He walked threw the woods and through the pistol in the lake. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

4) Don't worry about the template. That's just silliness, besides, downloading stuff is dangerous.

5) Don't format at all. Indentation? Font? A writer cares not for these things. If you prefer to write in triple spaced, 14 point Wingding with four spaces after every period, go for it.

6) If you change a character's name half-way through, make sure you don't bother changing all the references. Let the readers wonder.

7) If you ask the editor about something and they say "Generally accepted style, which we use, does not use this," ignore them. Do it your way.

8)  Ask to be paid in porn.

9) When given a form to fill out--nice and neat with everything the editor, webdesigner and cover artist need to know--ignore it. Send back your twitter link, because everything they need is there.

10) Answer emails only with Lolcat gifs.

11) When asking questions of the editors on a panel, perform your question in pantomime.

12) Ignore the "What IS doesn't publish" list, and the editor bios and send us that Christian Inspirational swashbuckler that makes all the pagan deities out to be demons or the underage incestuous necrophilia fanfiction.

13) Demand your due as an author. Wrangle over every comma and space the editor puts in. Make no content changes, even when your editor points out one of your characters is having receptive sex and is still fully dressed.

 A full dozen of hair-tearing things, only two of which are made up.
Please feel free to share the ways YOU like to make your editor beat her head into the wall.
