Sinful Rewards – Haunted Chicago

By Cynthia Sax on October 31, 2014

Sinful Rewards is set in Chicago which makes this Halloween even more exciting for me. Chicago, with its deadly history (The Great Fire, Al Capone), is one of the most haunted cities in America.

The Congress Plaza Hotel is a must-visit for ghost hunters. It was built to host visitors during Chicago’s World Fair and was a hangout for Al Capone and other gangsters.

Some of the ghosts include a little boy in the north tower. His mother threw him off the roof before she took her own life. There’s a female ghost in the banquet room. She whispers in the ear of any visitor who enters the space alone. The most haunted room in the hotel is 441. A shadowy outline of a woman frequently appears there.

Another must-see is the Inez Clark Statue in Graceland Cemetery. Inez was a 6 year old girl who was struck by lightning and killed in 1880. Inez’s parents commissioned a statue in the likeness of their beloved daughter. This was placed on her grave, in a glass box to protect it from the elements (apt, considering how she died). Cemetery employees and visitors have often found the box empty or the statue moved, especially during thunderstorms. Yes. I felt chills also.

The Lady In Red haunting the Drake Hotel is one of the most famous Chicago ghosts. When the Drake Hotel opened on New Year’s Eve in 1920, a wealthy venture capitalist and his fiancé attended the gala held in the Gold Coast Room. The venture capitalist excused himself, leaving his fiancé in the ballroom, and didn’t return for hours. The green-eyed, black-haired beauty dressed in crimson went looking for him. She found the love of her life in the arms of another woman. Devastated, she climbed to the roof and jumped. She has been seen searching the ballroom, standing in the room where she found him cheating and on the roof.

Have you ever seen a ghost or been in a haunted house?

Writing Erotic Romance – How To Start (Or Why Blank Screens Are Evil)

By Cynthia Sax on October 30, 2014

This post has adult content. If you are under the age of eighteen years old and/or sensitive to adult language/situations, please do not read this post.

Saturday is the official start of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, the annual craziness many sickass writers (including myself) voluntarily sign up for. We’re challenged to write 50,000 words (200 pages) in 30 sleepless, Nutella-fueled days. (My handle is http://nanowrimo.org/participants/cynthia-sax if you’d like to Friend me) These might be Alice In Wonderful fucked up beyond belief words but hey, they’re on the screen and that’s a great thing.

Why?

Because blank screens are the epitome of evil. They’re a writer’s kryptonite, representing many of our insecurities. Can I write this new story? Is this idea any good? Do I have another story in me? Oh my God. Will the words ever come?


First Draft Shit Vs Submission Draft Magic

Much of this blank screen insanity is self-inflicted. Writers are told over and over again – the first line, paragraph, page is key. If these first words aren’t gripping, no one will buy or read our story, our precious. This will disrupt the erotic romance-literary balance. The world will tilt, be knocked off its axis and spin into the sun. Yes, the future of mankind depends on this first page. No pressure!

Save this nutbar thinking for your second draft. For your first draft, you have permission to write a totally sucktastic first page. Don’t believe me? Listen to our favorite hard drinking, gun toting, kind of resembles Santa Claus, now dead writer Ernest Hemingway. “The first draft of anything is shit.”

Don’t worry about hooks or selling your story or perfection. Get that shit written.

What should you write first? This depends on you, on how your fickle bitch of a muse works. I’ll give you some suggestions. You can take one of these gems (grins) or find your own twisted path to erotic romance writing greatness. There are no rules.

The Scene That Inspired This Story

I usually have one scene, often early in the story (as I’m a linear writer – preferring to write the story in order from beginning to end), that I’m super stoked about. This is the scene that woke me up in the middle of the night, screaming “Write me now, you lazy word slut!” I then rushed to the bathroom, as to not disturb my wage-earning sugar daddy (aka the dear wonderful hubby), and I jotted the bare bones of the scene into the notebook I have stashed there.

The first thing I do is transfer these bare bones onto the screen. Bam! I no longer have the dreaded blank screen of death. I have the outline of a scene. By the time I flesh out this scene, I’m in the groove and I continue to write. I might go back and add previous scenes or I might barrel forward, gleefully yelling over my shoulder “Fuck you, writer’s block. You can’t get me.” (This yelling is yet another reason why I don’t write at Starbucks.)


Your POV Character’s Everyday World


Some writers like to start with a glimpse into their point of view character’s everyday world. This grounds them (and readers – not that we care about readers during this first draft word vomiting but still…) in who this character is. We know this everyday world won’t last because…well…the everyday world is as boring as hell. Plus for a character to change, becoming a person capable of lasting love, her/his world also has to change.

But it gives us a base. This is a great scene to make us care about this character. What makes her/him special, potentially deserving of love, worthy of writing about? YOU know this. Write that shit down. There. No more blank screen.


Fuckfest Documented

We’re erotic romance writers. Many of us love writing sex scenes. If you’re stuck, write a headboard banging scene between your hero and heroine (or more). You’ll fill that blank screen, reassure yourself that your characters have chemistry (which is rarer and more important than non-writers think), and the words will never be wasted. Even if you don’t end up keeping this scene, you can offer it as a bonus for blog readers. They’ll love you forever.


The Ending

Yes, I heard some writers gasp, but I know writers who always start their stories by writing the ending first. We’re writing erotic romance. The ending isn’t much of a stretch. The couple or more get together, have their happy for now or happy ever after.

These ass backward writers tell me it is like setting up a target. They know where they’re aiming and they write toward that point. It works for them. That’s all that matters!

The Talky Talky

Some writers start with dialogue (or description or action or whatever turns their cranks). One of my buddies has a first draft that resembles a movie script. There’s dialogue, minimal stage direction and that’s it. She then goes back with the second draft and fills the scenes in.


Which scene do you write first?

Sexy Treats – Humorous And Erotic Paranormal Romance Shorts

By Cynthia Sax on October 29, 2014

Big girls deserve Halloween treats also. Here are some paranormal erotic romance shorts (less than 20,000 words or 80 pages) that are sexy, funny AND no-calorie.

If I were to recommend one of my paranormal shorts for this Halloween, it would be Fangs In Fur. It’s about 40 pages, features a vampire heroine and a hunky wolf shifter hero, star-crossed love, and it cracks me up every time I read it.

Blurb:

I’m Helena and I’m no delicate flower, my rough touch making former paranormal lovers cry. I’m looking for someone big and strong and preferably not a wolf, especially not that alpha wolf I have stalking me.

I’m not attracted to him — no matter how wide his shoulders or how high his pain tolerance. I’m not that foolish. Lasting relationships between wolves and vampires are forbidden, and this male has the gleam of forever in his wild eyes. He is determined to make me his mate and that, I know, will break the fragile peace between our species.

There’s a thin, blood-red line between enemies and lovers. I’m about to cross it.

Here are two more paranormal erotic romance shorts I love

Claiming Her Geeks

Eve Langlais

Blurb:

How does an alpha she-wolf who can snap a man in half, learn to love and accept a pair of males who can only beat her in a game of chess?

Deena’s searched a long time for a man she can claim, but nobody’s ever stirred her interest, until Simon and Frank. The moment she meets the nerdy friends, she wants to mark them as her own, but as alpha of her pack, she can’t settle for a pair of geeks as her mates even if in the bedroom they make her submit.

At first Deena terrifies them, but as Simon and Frank get to know her, they realize that beneath the tough exterior is a woman who wants a man—or two—to take control. When it comes to fistfights, they might not have the strength to prevail, but in a battle of the mind and heart, they’ve got the smarts it takes to emerge victorious, to her screaming pleasure.

Trust fate and two men, to show this she-wolf that with a little bit of bondage, teasing and pleasure, she can claim the geeks who draw her, because after all, even a bitch can’t fight fate and her need for love.

Protect And Service

Mina Carter

Blurb:

Eloise is a woman on a mission. She needs to find a date for the annual hospital ball, and fast.

The trouble is she’s not only man-free but, after her bastard of an ex has a nasty little curse hurled her way, no human guy will touch her with a barge-pole—not after one of her dates ends up with green acne, another with a nose like Pinocchio…the list goes on.

Out of options, Eloise ends up at the offices of the Paranormal Protection Agency. She’s not sure what to expect, but she certainly doesn’t expect Jared Stone. No one expects Stone…

Second Excerpt For Sinful Rewards 5

By Cynthia Sax on October 28, 2014

This post has adult content. If you are under the age of eighteen years old and/or sensitive to adult language/situations, please do not read this post.

Here is an excerpt for Sinful Rewards 5 with Hawke, our bad boy biker.

***

“Bee Carter,” I answer my phone, trying for breezy and casual, achieving high and squeaky.

“I’ll be there in two minutes.” Hawke’s deep baritone curls my bare toes. He’s not asking for my permission. He’s coming over and there’s nothing I can do to stop him.

“You’re angry.” I sigh, hearing the dark dominance in his voice.

“I am angry, but not with you, never with you.” Hawke breathes heavily as though he’s running to see me, this possibility thrilling me. “You’re loyal, love, and you don’t switch allegiances quickly. I understand that.”

He understands me. . .too damn well. “I shouldn’t switch allegiances at all.” I pace the length of the main room, dreading, craving, anticipating his arrival. “And you shouldn’t come over. Lona sent me more scripts to memorize. I have to choose my clothes for the lunch, fix my hair and makeup, and—”

“I’m not stopping you from doing any of those things.” Hawke brushes my excuses aside, determined to meet with me. “I’m staying with you until you leave for your lunch.”

The lunch, oh God, the lunch. “Okay,” I reluctantly agree because I don’t want to be alone. This lunch has my stomach twisted into knots. “I’m going to mess this up. You know I can’t lie, and my acting abilities aren’t much better.” I boot up my laptop. “It’ll be a disaster.”

“It won’t be a disaster,” Hawke’s voice echoes.

“Are you in a tunnel?” I ask.

He chuckles, the sound low and sexy. “I’m in the stairwell, sweetheart. The elevators in these buildings are too slow.”

He’s running up the stairs, that’s how much of a rush he is in to see me. Warmth spreads across my chest. “Lona is counting on me.” This scares the shit out of me.

“If one lunch can destroy their relationship, Jacques doesn’t deserve her.” The echoing stops and my body hums with excitement. “Anything worth having is worth fighting for.”

My former marine would fight for the woman he loves. I hear this in his voice, know this in my soul. I open the door, tilt my head back, and gaze upward at Hawke. His chest rises and falls. His scent engulfs me. There’s a gleam of intent in his pale blue eyes.

He wants me and I want him. If I allow him inside, we’ll kiss, touch, do things we shouldn’t. Nicolas deserves my loyalty. I should tell Hawke to go away. I should—

Hawke captures my lips with his, the force of his embrace driving me backward. I reach for him, clasp his broad shoulders. He hooks his arms around me, securing me to him, as he kicks the door shut. Our tongues tangle and twist, dancing to the rhythm of our hearts, his stubble teasing my chin, leaving a sensual trail on my skin.

He tastes of black coffee and man. His body radiates heat, a thin layer of moisture covering his big form. Everything about him, even his no-name T-shirt and seen-better-days jeans, appeals to me. I cling to him, losing myself in his kiss.

Nicolas Rainer, Chicago’s most sought-after billionaire bachelor, has finally decided what he wants, and that’s Bee Carter in his arms, forever. He shows up unannounced on her doorstep and kisses her until her toes curl and her body burns.

Nicolas wasn’t the sexy man Bee expected to see this morning. Hawke Masters, her tattooed former marine, is riding his customized chopper toward the condo building, anticipating an equally mind-meltingly erotic encounter.

Both men want her with a thrilling intensity. Neither her billionaire nor her biker wishes to share her affections. Is today the day Bee is forced to choose?

Sinful Rewards – Goodreads Extras

By Cynthia Sax on October 27, 2014

This post has adult content. If you are under the age of eighteen years old and/or sensitive to adult language/situations, please do not read this post.

One of the fun things about writing a serial is I can tell other characters’ stories at the same time. On the Goodreads group (https://www.goodreads.com/topic/list_group/139616-a-year-of-sizzling-hot-sax-read-along ), I’m telling Cyndi’s story (the best friend’s story).

Here is a steaming hot snippet from her point of view.

***

I don’t want to get a room. Hell no to delayed gratification and all that other shit. I want to fuck Cole now.

He pulls me out a side door into a shockingly clean, well-lit alley. Even the garbage can beside the metal door is spotless, not a dent on the exterior.

My movie star goes all sexy He-man on me, pushing my body against the brick wall and capturing my mouth. I surrender to him, grasping his shoulders, drawing him closer, and he holds me, his hands bracketing my face, as though he’s afraid I’ll escape him.

That ain’t happening. Although I’m disappointed that I’ll be just another back alley fuck for my hero, I’m not going anywhere. I’m a slut, this is all I deserve, and I’ve wanted Cole far too much for far too long.

Our tongues tangle, twine. The man knows how to kiss, his lips firm, his mouth hot. He runs his palms over my cheeks, neck, shoulders, going for the grand prize. I arch my back, sticking out my tits. He cups my curves, the pressure just right. Oh mamma. I wiggle, brushing my hips against his, teasing that huge ridge in his black jeans.

He squeezes and releases, squeezes and releases, playing with my breasts. My nipples tighten against the green silk of my corset. I rake my fingernails over his T-shirt covered chest and he shudders.

“Cyndi,” he murmurs against my lips.

He knows my name. I smile. “Touch my tits, Cole.” I yank down my corset, the underwire pushing my breasts upward, the cool night air puckering my skin. “Suck on them.”

“Yes.” He dips his head and covers my right nipple with his lips. God. I writhe. That feels good. He draws my sensitive flesh into his mouth, tugging, laving me with his tongue.

I clasp the back of his neck, hold him to my breast, rocking against him, trying to prolong this, my one encounter with the man of my dreams.

“Beautiful.” He switches breasts, the pull of his mouth felt down to my pussy. Cole is more than a pretty face. He has skills, adoring my ta-tas with his lips, tongue, hands.

Skills like his can only be honed by numerous past fuckfests. Warmth spreads across my chest. We’re fellow sluts, Cole and I. I thread my fingers through his ink black hair, savoring the softness, the connection. We both know our way around the human body.

“Cyndi?” He gazes up at me, his eyes brilliant blue, his cheeks flushed.

He’s horny as hell, yet still a gentleman, wanting to know if I’m game for a quickie against the wall. I smile. He’s so sweet. “Fuck me, Cole.” I pull my black mini-skirt up and my green G-string down, revealing my cleanly-shaven mons, the calling card of hoes everywhere. “Fill me with your cock.”

“God, yes.” He fumbles in the front pocket of his jeans, removes a condom package, clutching it between his teeth as he unbuckles his belt, unzips his jeans, pushing the denim to his knees.

Holy fuck. I gaze at his long hard shaft with open admiration. That ridge hadn’t lied. “Need help?” I stroke my pussy lips up and down, up and down, ensuring I’m nice and slick for him.

“Any help from you and we won’t need the condom.” He laughs shakily, sheathing himself quickly. “I’ll come before I touch you. I want you so badly.”

His confession charms me. “My breasts tend to do that to men.” I grin.

“It wasn’t only your breasts.” Cole presses his body against mine, his latex-covered cock hard along my stomach. “It’s you, your beauty, your confidence.” He kisses my chin. “The way you challenge me.” He sprinkles kisses over my cheeks. “Push me. That’s so hot.”

Oh God. I blink back tears, emotion welling inside me. If he says this mush to his back alley fucks, what would he relay to a woman he cared about? “Fuck me, Cole.” I spread my legs wider. “I need you inside me now.”

Nina Gerard, a fellow Shades Of Pink contributor, interviewed me!

http://afineromancendg.blogspot.ca/2014/10/love-in-office.html

Here’s a snippet

NDG: Office romances can be so sexy! Do you have a corporate background? And have you ever fallen in love with a former boss?

CS: I DO have a corporate background. I played in new product development (new product lines, M&A, system rollouts, etc) for years. I spent a bit of time in the boardroom and have met a few billionaires. I’ve had some extremely hunkalicious bosses but I’ve only loved one man in my life – my dear wonderful hubby.

Interview With Ashley Ladd

By Cynthia Sax on October 24, 2014

I sat down (virtually) with Ashley Ladd for a short interview. Today is the release day for Ashley Ladd’s Spooky Sojourn, a MF Paranormal Erotic.


Cynthia Sax: How does Spooky Sojourn start?

Ashley Ladd: Deanna Thompson has just been hired to manage The Gilroy Resort and Hotel in Homestead, Florida and to rid it of the ghosts—or whoever is trying to make the hotel appear to be haunted—haunting it. So she talks to the assistant manager and other employees, then hires a paranormal investigator to help her get to the bottom of the problems. She’s taken aback when the man on the other end of the line has the sexiest, most exciting masculine voice she’s ever heard.

Cynthia Sax: Where is Spooky Sojourn set?

Ashley Ladd: In a haunted hotel south of Miami, Florida.

I think haunted hotels are especially exciting. In this case there are two purported ghosts haunting the hotel, one who likes to cook and throw knives around the kitchen and the other haunts the bowling alley and not only bowls but chases the employees around with pins. This has driven away many guests and also hotel personnel. However, when a romance writing convention stays at the hotel, they request a ghost tour, surprising Deanna.


Cynthia Sax: What makes Deanna and Harry perfect for each other?

Ashley Ladd: They appear to be opposites so this is a story of opposites attract. Deanna doesn’t believe in ghosts and the supernatural. In fact she thinks anybody who does is silly, even strange and immature. Meanwhile, Harry DeVeaux, the paranormal investigator she hires to disprove the ghost theory, whole-heartedly believes in ghosts. They often irritate each other even as sparks fly fast and furious.

When someone tries to kill Deanna, Harry’s protective instincts kick into full gear. He lost the first love of his life to foul play. He’s going to do everything in his power to keep Deanna safe and here with him.


Cynthia Sax: What do you love about writing paranormals?


Ashley Ladd:
Paranormal is so much fun, especially ghosts. They get to fly, float, become invisible, jump into bodies, talk through people, and do just about anything they want.

Since this release occurs right before Halloween, it’s perfect timing. The mood is set for spookiness and all kinds of paranormal fun, even in hot muggy South Florida.

Thank you, Ashley Ladd, for joining us today!

*****************************************************************************

Someone’s trying to kill Deanna, but is it the ghosts she doesn’t believe in, the rich socialite who might be a murderess, or someone else with a beef against The Gilroy Hotel and Resort that Deanna has just been hired to manage? The Gilroy’s owners want the ghosts, or whoever is causing the trouble at the hotel eliminated, and they are pressuring Deanna to do the job as quickly as possible. Harry DeVeaux, paranormal investigator comes highly recommended to do the job and against Deanna’s better judgment, she hires him.

Although Deanna thinks Harry’s crazy for believing in ghosts and Harry thinks Deanna has a closed mind to the possibilities of ghosts and they highly annoy each other, sparks fly. Deanna can’t help but fantasize about Harry and inspired by a romance convention visiting her hotel, writes her fantasies in a private blog that Harry finds, hacks, and reads. Ooh la la!
