Um, so I may have gotten sidetracked. And I might have forgotten my password. And I might have pushed setting a new password aside until now. >.>......

Now, on to more important bits and my stories! Yay! *ahem*

First up would be By King's Order, an M/M, which was published by Less Than Three Press. All the information for this one can be found here --> (Mind you, I am a newbie at blogger, so I have no idea if the link will work. Fingers crossed.)
By King's Order cover I was really excited when writing this one, for the simple fact that I adored the prompt and loved the thought of being able to have my work (maybe) read by the one and only Megan Derr. What can I say? I'm a bit of a fangirl when it comes to books and awesome authors. I was very happy with this story when I was done, and if my family had recorded my excitement, I'm sure a few people would have had a good laugh when I received the acceptance letter, then the contract. About the story itself there isn't a lot to tell. I tend to be a sit down, do a quick write, and if it's good, do edits, send it off, and keep my fingers crossed. Very much so a pantser for short works. I think there was only one part where I got stuck writing, but I think it all turned out for the best. Now if Lor would just behave and let the pirate ravage him, I'd have the next story out, but, alas, Lor is proving to be a wee bit more difficult than I'd like, though I'm hoping he'll finally settle down sometime within the next few months so I can write.

My second story, also published by Less Than Three Press, is called Something New, part of the Kiss Me At Midnight Anthology. This one is an F/F/F and I had a lot of fun writing it. This one can be found here-->

Something New coverFor this one I just couldn't get the idea of a fantasy kind of western out of my head. It had originally started with Juniper meeting one woman, but somehow it turned out there had to be two, and it worked for me. I've been teasing with an idea for a sequel, but I'm not 100% sure yet on whether or not I want to or even what the sequel would be about, though I do know it will involve all three women.

My third story is from MLR and OMG! I had Kris Jacen as my editor. *squee* If you haven't heard of Kris from MLR, you're missing out. My story there is Chocolate Power and you can find everything for it here-->

Since it's MLR it's an M/M. I have to admit, I wrote this one in two days, and edited it in one. Also, I submitted it the day the call for vampire stories was ending. *ducks head* I had this idea of a lone, brooding vampire who found a dhamphir child in my brain and nothing was coming. So, when I got fed up, I opened a new document and said "Screw it!" and proceeded to create Chocolate Power. I kind of fell in love with Kris at the end, and didn't know how I felt about Will, though I admit that I purposefully created Gaia and the agreement between Gaia and Kris just because I was amused by the idea of a pissed off Will. *shrugs shoulders* I might be mildly sadistic on occasion. But Will will probably have a good laugh at my expense when I finally settle on this pairs starting story. At the moment, I'm working on John's story, and I'm, uh, about three-fourths of the way done with it, but, uh, I may have allowed myself to take on a project. *ducks*

As for story number four, that one will be out with Storm Moon Press really soon. *happy dance* It's part of their Coffee Break Quickie Anthology and it's an F/F. (I think I'm starting to see a pattern here.) All of its information can be found here-->

This one, oh, I saw the prompt and immediately had an idea. Usually I have to chew on them a bit, but I jumped right on in with this one. Then I had to worry about whether or not it was good enough because it was so short, but it's a quickie, and I finally submitted it. Good move on my part since it was accepted!

I can't wait to read everyone else's stories.
