My week so far...

I've read some really great books this week. If you haven't already, read From Afar by Ava March. It's a great Historical/Vampire/Gay story that's very fast paced and I loved it.

I also read Liquid Glass by Zathyn Priest and just like everything else he writes it was great!

I've done some writing of my own over the weekend. I'm currently working on two stories. One is about Sidney, who is Samuel's artistic/goth brother in A Realistic Romance. He's been really impatient to get his story told, but unfortunately for him, his partner to be is being strangely silent. I've been struggling with it some, but I know as soon as his partner starts talking it'll start flowing pretty easily.

The second story I've been working on is called Angel's Redemption. My friend and Shayne's partner, Jack, has been brainstorming this one with me. He loves a young man named Brent Corrigan and has wanted me to write something loosely based on him. As you can see he talked me into it!
For those who do not know who Brent Corrigan is, he is a popular gay porn superstar who has had a very interesting career in his young life.
So Riley is going to be quite a challenge to write. I plan on him being very redeemable and very lovable despite the mistakes he's made in the past. Of course, his future soul-mate and partner Jackson will have a lot to do with that.

Snow White has been sick. She's been running a low grade temperature and Ashley knows she is doomed to get it too! Chris has been working a lot of overtime to keep us a float. I'm just glad he really likes his job and doesn't seem to mind doing it that much. I've been looking for a job, but in Arkansas as in most places, they are few and far inbetween. I've put in several applications, and hopefully I'll be hearing something from someone soon!

In the meantime, I'll just write and enjoy what time I have left off.


  1. Ahhh...Mr. Corrigan. He's a particular favorite that's for sure. Love those eyes and he's so sexy in red. YUM! So pretty. LOL. Jack told me all about what you're writing, Shell Bell. I think it's going to be fabulous!
    Goth boy (Sidney) looks pretty good too!
    Give Ashley our love. I hope SW feels better soon!

  2. Oh, I'm so sorry that SW isn't feeling well. I hope she's better soon.

    Good luck with job search. Something will come along.

    Your new stories sound fabulous. I love goth boys, and Brent Corrigan is a hottie! I'm looking forward to both stories.

  3. Congrats on new work for the muse. I'm currently working on a particularly angsty tale myself and I'm loving it.

    Brent is cute, but I still think Ash is prettier.

    Believe me, I know all about the crappy job market.

  4. I guess Shayne and I are both persuasive when we want to be. LOL! I know Riley and Jackson's story will be your best yet. *HUGS*

    You'll find a job soon. Keep the faith, Babe!

  5. I hope Snow White feels better soon. And yeah, kids have a way of gifting their illnesses to their parents, but I hope Ashley doesn't catch it, too.

    Fingers crossed you get good news from the applications you've submitted!

    Love the new characters you're working on! It is frustrating when a hero keeps silent, but I'm sure he'll start chattering away soon.

    And thanks for the book lovin'!!! ((hugs))

  6. Hope SW is feeling better and that no one else gets sick! Vicarious hugs to them.

    I'm sure your characters will start flowing soon, then you won't be able to shut them up!

    Brent, so ironic, I cowrote a quickie slash with another author a few months ago based on him, he's pretty inspirational (both his story and his sweet looks). Now I have to go dig that out if I can find it!
