Welcome to stop #59 on the Wet and Wild Blog Hop!
Water is sensuous. Water feels good and it looks good—and making love in the water can be incredible. Showers are a natural place for intimacy, especially if they’re built for it. The usual tub with a shower requires some creativity and works better in books than in real life. What would be the perfect shower? In my imagination, it’s be big, maybe six feet on a side. That leaves room to play and for more than two people. It would have a bench built in along one wall. It would need more than one overhead shower spray and maybe a few side ones. It would have one glass wall, with a mirror opposite—because eye candy is part of the fun. We’d need thick mat on the floor outside the shower, in case things continued after the hot water tank was run dry. And I’d want a heated floor for those sexy winter mornings.
Hmm. It seems I’m describing a smaller version of the shower at the Plume, a location of interest in Surrender! (Scroll down to see it. It’s the second story in the Plume Series.)
Beaches can be great places to play, too. (I always think of that scene from the movie From Here to Eternity, with Burt Lancaster, when I think of wild activities on the beach.) It’s the sand that troubles me—all that grit can’t be a good thing. Maybe one of those beach cabanas would be better. Sheltered from sun and wind, shady but with the ocean breezes blowing through, maybe located at an isolated location down the beach. A secret world. Hmm. Now I’m thinking of a scene in The Best Man, which takes place in a cabana.

I was reviewing the proof for the print edition of The Wedding Anthology and had a Eureka moment. The ending of Forever Bound had been bothering me a bit and I finally realized what had to be done.
I’ve added about four lines to the end of Forever Bound. That revised edition was uploaded this morning to Amazon and Smashwords. It still has to be approved for premium distribution from Smashwords to other portals. Depending where you bought the book, you’ll either automatically get a notification of the new edition being available or you’ll need to ask for it.
Don’t scroll down if you haven’t read it yet, because there’s a SPOILER ALERT HERE.
Just in case you can’t stand waiting, those lines are:
“You’re just in a hurry to get tied down,” Ryan teased and Jess laughed.
“Maybe I am. Do you have any problems with that?”
“Not one,” he said with finality, then kissed her with a sweet heat that made their friends and family break into loud applause.
They were forever bound, and that sounded exactly right to Jess.
I hope those of you in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving this weekend!
Here I promised you an update last week, and the time slipped away on me. Sorry about that – I’ve been getting organized. It is such a busy time of year and I clearly need to work on my time management.
Where are we at? Well, FLASHBACK has not only been approved for premium distribution from Smashwords, but it has shipped to many portals this week. It went to Apple on November 16, B&N on November 19, KOBO on November 22. So, depending upon the time delay at each portal, you should start seeing it on sale at those outlets by the end of this week.
Next up will be FOREVER BOUND. No one from the Plume gets to jump the queue this time! I’m working on it now, and it will be a December release. As usual, I’ll let you know when it’s written and is being formatted.
Once FOREVER BOUND is completed, I can get THE WEDDING anthology compiled and the print edition formatted.
The next release will be #8 in The Plume series, SWITCH. I’m going to say January for its release, even though a chunk of it is already written (and more envisioned) because this is a busy time of year. I still need to work with the artist on the cover, so will add a bit of time in case she’s booked up (or busy herself). Again, I’ll give you a shout when it’s being formatted and close to release.
Then we’ll see about Plume #9, which is the big finish and is called CELEBRATION.
One thing I have learned this year is that writing two different series at the same time is a bad idea for me. I won’t do that again!
That probably answered the questions most of you have posted, but I’ll go peek at comments now.
Isn’t this one gorgeous?
Files are being formatted now – it takes a bit longer to get them ready for the printed book. This anthology includes the next three novellas – DECEPTION, EXHIBITION and EXPOSURE, all in one file or volume. It’ll be priced a little bit better in digital than buying them individually.
I’m hoping this anthology will be available in about a week, but I’ll let you know when it is.
I had to show you the cover right away, though! I love it.
