Since I finished up my Tease Dark Tarot submission, Twilight's Embrace, I've been trying to work on a full-length proposal - but have realized it needs a little more time to percolate.
So, what better than to tackle a WICKED submission or two for Cobblestone Press's new line. I worked on one that seemed like a perfect fit and the next thing I knew, it turned into a highly complex serial killer story that needs a bit more thought to get the timeline to work.
I went back to a story idea I had several months ago. Again, it seemed like a short story when I conceived of it. After I'd plotted it out and started writing it, it turned into a rather spooky seductive suspense. More suspense than sex... and a heck of a lot longer than a short story.
Perhaps I'm just not cut out to write short erotica. Not too surprising, but a bit disappointing.
