Hide and Seek

He's coming for me now, and he's seeking my hide. His boots thresh the forsythia. His moody threats taunt and tempt. But he cheated first--deserved what happened. That's my only defense.

He's closing on me now, because I've pricked his pride. He thought he was so slick, counting to a hundred by tens. Wouldn't you have grabbed the garden hose, when he had you hemmed in?

He's coming for me now. It's not my pride he'll prick. That drip, dripping from his shirt pulverizes courage, and conviction drains away as I'm gathering my skirt.

He's waiting for me now. He thinks speed is on his side. But I'm poised for the win, with galloping heart and tingling tush, scampering unhampered from beneath the lilac bush.

He's charging after me now. I know my ass is fried. It isn't smart to giggle. But I completely lose my mind, when he tackles me growling, "Now, girl, that smart little ass is mine."

He's got me squirming now. We're exchanging moans and sighs. But, I wouldn't call it cheating-- this victory snatched from defeat. It was Mine for the taking when I stopped hiding what he seeks.

Skinny Dipping App

Gotta go skinny dipping...

The fantasies you tempt me into
rise thick and hot
as the steam from foam coffee cups
dotting the boardroom table

I get lost
Wander off to play with you
While conversation drones

I'm not AWOL long
when someone asks
what I would do in said situation

Whatever was said
tiptoed in one ear and out the other
without leaving an impression

I need an app for that
something to mind the meeting
programmed to deliver aha moments
and witty responses that will cover my tracks

Allow me to leave my business suit sitting primly in my chair
while I sneak off for a little skinny dipping
in a wet dream of you

 It's been a long time coming. I know I've talked everyone's ear off about this game. But the big day is here at last. Spirit Walkers: Curse of the Cypress Witch is out!

And there is a free download here.

And you can see the slideshow of the screenshots here.

This story is loosely based on legends and mysteries surrounding Virginia's Great Dismal swamp. It was fun to write this with the team at Orchid Games and I know you all will enjoy playing. Go check it out.


Video Interview With a Female Werewolf

Can you believe it, I have live footage from an interview with a werewolf? Yep, right here on the blog today.

The heroine from Siobhan Muir's new novel, Queen Bitch of Callowwood Pack, agreed to sit down at the Next Dimension Cafe with me and chat about life as a werewolf. As far as I know this is the first time a werewolf has agreed to do a video-taped interview. It was also my first time taping an interview. There were glitches. And because it all went down in the next dimension, there were major glitches.  I appreciate Julianna Morris's patience with all the technical difficulties.

To keep the video clips as short as possible, and so I can cut out the embarrassing details--like me accidentally popping out of my chair and landing  in Julianna's plate of crepes-- I will post the question I asked here in print and embed her video response below the question.

So, Julianna, what is Callowwood like?


How did you wind up getting tapped as a candidate for alpha female of the Callowwood pack?


I want to hear all about Jeff Lightfoot. And I want the good stuff, the things you only tell your best girlfriend. 

And there you have it, enticing tidbits about the Queen Bitch of Callowwood Pack. Julianna Morris and Siobhan Muir are hanging around the blog today, so you have a chance to ask all those questions you've been dying to ask a werewolf. I'll draw the name of one lucky commenter to win a signed copy of this hot cover.

You can find Siobhan Muir on Facebook or @SiobhanMuir Twitter or on her website. If you'd like to know more about Juliana Morris' rise to role of Queen Bitch of Callowwood Pack, you can snag a copy of her hot story here.
