As you perhaps know by now, I'm deeply fascinated by "what ifs". What if my main character does this, what if things were like that - or what if Plato really were right: We all have a better half, and we can be united with him or her. Oh, and what if that strange Himiko thing in space was something even more mysterious than the scientists think it is.
It turns out that I'm not the only Torquere author who loves imagining what might transpire after the world we're familiar with changes forever. Lee Benoit is over at the Romance for the Rest of Us blog telling about her Servant of the Seasons, and Syd McGinley will be along later to share a bit about Out of the Woods. I might pop by as well if I figure out my password before bedtime...
Aaand, here's the good news: You now have the chance to see what we think would come in handy after the apocalypse. In other words, the three of us put together a prize package filled with essentials for surviving alien invasions, zombie apocalypses, or pear-shaped camping trips, including books! And duct tape!

I've recently bought the latest book in the Deviation series by Chris Owen and Jodi Payne, "Safe Words". And read it, too, unfortunately. I was almost reluctant to do it, because I knew for every page I read, there would be one less left to read (does that make sense? It does to me). Then I got another story by Syd McGinley, "Little Fishes" (part of the Charity Blitz Sip, by the way), and that was the same, just worse: I really can't get enough of her characters. It took me a while to warm up to Tommy (he just wasn't Dr. Fell), but I'm there now. So there. Only, I've run out of pages there, too.
Now I'm sulking until I find something else to read.
I read and I write - everything from corporate to kink. My naughty fictional friends are always there to make my life interesting. And pester me, of course. Pesky creatures.
