And then, as if I had never collapsed into a pile of can’t-deal-with-it, I reached a place where the stories in my head were able to drown out the nastiness of our day-to-day experience here in the USA. Some old characters screamed, “Wake up!” and new characters were waiting there to meet me when I opened my eyes.
Hello again inner fantasy world. I’ve missed you so much.
Now, which one of you dirty ladies should I write about next?
This also allowed me to quit procrastinating and put the finishing touches on RITUAL RIDGE, a short book I intend as a precursor to a longer trilogy of stories set in a post-apocalyptic yet somehow still sexy world in which men have become uncontrollable sex beasts to be fought off (or not) by fierce bands of warrior women. If that sounds as exciting to you as it does to me, please check out RITUAL RIDGE.
I released the book quietly last week with no real promotion plan. To my surprise, it started getting Kindle Unlimited reads right away, more than any of my other books have, even siting for a while #69 in “erotic science fiction” in the Kindle store. To be honest, it went higher than that, but 69 seemed like the appropriate screenshot to grab for my purposes.
So now that I’ve dived into writing the follow up to RITUAL, a whole new group of characters are asking me to start in on their lusty tales. I don’t even want to describe this new scenario, but trust me when I say it’s much further away from the relatively sweet shenanigans of my GOOD FRIEND stories than ONE HIT or RITUAL RIDGE. Mainly because it involves demons and magic. I think it will be a lot of fun.
With any luck, you’ll be able to judge for yourself soon.
