As I get in the final stages of writing for this year, I am happy to be included in some amazing holiday romance bundles. I had fun collaborating with these cool authors.

Christmas is just around the corner. Check out two stories in some hot bundles that you can’t find anywhere else just yet.



The Alpha Warlock Shifter’s Gift is a little holiday treat for you Alpha Warlocks of Kala West lovers. You’ll get a peak inside the werewolf community of Kala West and see a short story that was a pleasure for me to write. This story is available to read for only $0.99 along with 14 other stories in Shifters in the Snow.


 


Chocolate for Christmas is a yummy contemporary story in a new series I’m creating in the small town of Bluehaven, Virginia. Let’s just say this one will get you in the mood for some holiday delights. Find this one for only $0.99 along with 13 other stories in Steaming up the Holidays!


 



Both stories are only $0.99 for a limited time! Check out both stories and other steamy bundles on Amazon and available in Kindle Unlimited!

In other news, Carmen’s story will finally be out in time for Christmas. Life has certainly thrown some curve balls to delay it, but you’ll definitely see Carmen before we close out 2015. Yay!

Thanks for being so patient. All of you readers are fracking awesome (My Battlestar Galactica love is showing)! The Witching Hour is definitely upon us! 😉

Also stay tuned for some more holiday specials arriving next week. You won’t be disappointed.

Final Brixton Sister Cover!

 My Third and Last Alpha Warlocks Cover…Or is It?!

Hello Skye Readers!

So if you all have been keeping up with the Brixton sisters, you know that Carmen is the last sister…or is she?

I have said before that this series is just the start. I will be working on (and hopefully releasing by May/June) my first Curvy Paranormals of Kala West book. This series will be longer, hotter, and full of supernaturals. Menage sexiness all around. 

Also, witches and warlocks aren’t the only creatures coming out to play. Vampires, werewolves, and ghosts will be saying hello, among other things.

I also plan on releasing a prequel…one that centers around the sisters’ mother, Seraphine, and her warlocks, Callen and Cruz. So when this third story comes out, don’t worry. It’s far from the end.

Now, for the moment of reveal…..

My third cover for the Alpha Warlocks of Kala West series, The Alpha Warlocks’ Own:





In this third installment, you’ll meet Carmen, the BBW fire witch, and her Alpha Warlocks, the Durant twins, Ryan and Royce. Ryan is an air warlock, and Royce is a fire warlock. You can imagine the fire storm these two create.

If you remember the first book, you’ve already met Ryan. Now, all the characters come back to save the youngest Brixton sister, including her smexy and yummy warlocks.

Look for this to come out late April or early May. If you haven’t read Charice or Claire’s story, they are both available on Amazon and are Free in Kindle Unlimited. 

Check Charice’s out HERE or if in the UK, HERE

Find Claire’s story HERE or for UK readers, HERE. Claire’s story is $.99 for a limited time, so jump on it!

Check out the COMING SOON tab for more details on Carmen’s journey and the story synopsis.

Utilizing Daydreams and Observations to Kick-Start Story Ideas

 Quick and Dirty Skye Tips #3 – Daydreams and Observations: Story Idea Generation at Its Finest!

Hello Skye Readers!

I was reading over a self-help writing book that told people how to get ideas for writing. That’s one thing I’m not lacking on. I have so many awesome ideas and too little time to write them all. However, I was surprised to find out two missing mental tools missing in the book I was reading that I have come to value: Daydreaming and Observing. Let me break both down.

1. That Far Off Look In Your Eye May Be Your Next Story

Has a parent or teacher ever told you, “Get your head out of the clouds!” Maybe a person was talking to you, noted your vacant look, and asked, “Are you listening to me?” That’s a big one I hear most often because, honestly, sometimes I don’t. The world is a busy and noisy place, and sometimes I tune it out. Most times I don’t realize I’m doing it, but sometimes I do.

In my upcoming story, The Alpha Warlocks’ Desire, my heroine is a daydreamer herself. Claire, as an earth witch, always makes her way down from the clouds sooner or later. Me? Sometimes it takes me a little longer, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

You may have noticed that one of my taglines is “Conquering New Worlds and Conversing with Her Characters Daily.” This may seem quirky, but it’s true, and yes, I am a little crazy from it. I think most writers will tell you they’re a little crazy, but so are actors, singers, entrepreneurs, and anyone who longed to break the conventional path of life.

The reason why I use this as a tag is because I’m constantly thinking about my characters and their journeys in new worlds. I’ve tried to force things in outlines and stories, but sometimes characters guide what they want to be without me pushing and prodding.

I’ve always been a big daydreamer. Movies have always been a passion of mine, and usually they cause me to think and daydream long after the credits finish rolling up. Some of my best ideas come from daydreaming up stories after watching an awesome movie or T.V. show. 

I watched Being Human (both UK and US versions), Lost Girl, and Witches of East End last year, as I have ever since they all started. I thought it was awful that these shows had season finales and wished that I could keep some magical elements going for my own enjoyment. Then the seeds of the fictional town of Kala West, Florida was planted.

The next time someone tells you to stop daydreaming or start listening, say okay, and then jot down your daydreams. They just may be your next story idea.
   

2. Observing Humans (and Sometimes Animals and Aliens) Interact Builds Ideas


Let’s face it. As a society, we’re nosy by nature. Haven’t you ever been in traffic, only to realize it was partly in due to nosy drivers gawking at the scene of destruction? Be honest. You were probably one of those nosy drivers. 

As a Central Floridian, I-4 is our biggest interstate because it leads people straight to tourist central: Universal Studios, Disney, and loads of other fun for outsiders. Not so much fun for us locals, let me tell you.

But one great thing about living in a big city like Orlando is that there are many opportunities for people watching (animal watching too). I have got some good ideas for verbal fights by watching couples scream at each other in Barnes and Nobles, noting how strangers greet each other at Starbucks, and viewed how religion can help (and hurt) people when going to church. 

These small instances add up and can help when creating your own character relationships. The alien comment stems from MegaCon coming to town soon, but it can also be from movies, since loads of films give personification to animals and aliens (Avengers sequel anyone?).

Anyway, the point is that observing people, and other living things, in their habitat can enhance storytelling. The same goes for dialogue. I love dialogue. You are definitely going to get loads of dialogue when you read any one (or all :-D) of my stories. But the way I talk isn’t the way everyone talks, so hearing the voice of others helps to portray different characters outside of myself.

It’s your turn again. What was a daydream you had that could have been a kick-ass story idea? Remember, it’s not too late to start it!

Alpha Warlocks of Kala West #2 – Two Covers Down, One to Go

 Thanks and My Second Alpha Warlocks Cover!

Hello Skye Readers!

If you’re one of the many readers who’s downloaded one of my stories, I want to take time to say thank you. I may not be there with you as you press the “Buy” button or swipe the Kindle page, but I still appreciate each and every one of you.

And now the moment of revelation…..

My second cover for the Alpha Warlocks of Kala West series, The Alpha Warlocks’ Desire:




Look for this to come out early March. If you haven’t read Charice’s story, you can check it out HERE.

 
In this second installment, you’ll get to meet Claire and her Alpha Warlocks, Axel and Jett. Hardcore names for some hardcore alpha candy. 

 
I am really enjoying finishing this one because the mythology of the Triad Bond is explored a little more. Check out the COMING SOON tab for more details.

 

After Claire, Carmen finally has her fun chance in the spotlight, and let me tell you. She’s a firecracker. Literally, since she’s a fire witch. 

If you’re still craving more Kala West, Florida action, don’t worry. The fun won’t end with the Brixton sisters. Nor will witches be the only paranormals hanging around town. Until the next post.

Sex Scene…What?

 Quick and Dirty Skye Tips #1: Romancing Up to the Sex Scene!

Hello Skye Readers!

I just finished a story, and guess what? My big sex scene was the last thing I wrote. Crazy, right? Especially for a person who writes mostly erotic fiction.

But I realized this was a good thing. Why? It’s all about the build up. That’s even more important the the sex itself.

 
A look. A small touch. A craving. It all leads up to the big connection. It’s part of the fantasy. 

 
The stuff that rarely happens in real life. Okay, it happens to the lucky ones. As a single girl, I’m happy to live out the fantasy until the real build up comes along. Maybe even after that.

What did I learn along the way? I’m calling these Quick and Dirty Skye Tips #1. LOL

 

1. Story Elements Need to Set the Romantic Mood

This may be a “Duh” moment, but I don’t just mean candles and music. I mean if it’s a werewolf romance, show him graze her skin with his fangs. If he’s a warlock and she’s a witch, something magical needs to happen, damn it. The story elements need to be present in the romancing.
 

2. In Threesomes, A Person Can Easily Be Left Out


A lot of my writing has more than two people. Usually, it’s two men and a woman. I’ve noticed that I can easily make one person the third wheel. It may be that the character hasn’t spoken in a while or the other two aren’t acting and reacting to them. Everyone deserves a chance in the spotlight.
 

3. Dialogue Needs to Work With the Action


If the female lead is being, let’s just say orally, pleasured, chances are she’s not going to say three long lines of dialogue. Unless someone is really bad at the task at hand. Short and clipped dialogue can come in handy during peak moments. 😉

 
So what’s your fantasy build-up? Is it a werewolf that can smell your arousal from a mile away? A vampire who craves your body and your blood? Or just a good old-fashioned guy who can’t get enough of you?
