Blood Stoned_Chapter One

For Trick-or-Treat Night,  Maggie and Hunter are posting their latest Jinx adventure in installments today.  Enjoy! Blood Stoned. Happy Halloween! © 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story   Chapter One   “I will master this,” I muttered, determined to understand the difference between a spell and a charm. At the moment, it seemed to be the amount of power I fed into each. When I channeled lots of power, I could focus on an object and make it burst into flames. I wasn’t sure if that was a spell or a...

Greetings fellow warriors, readers, and snippeteers. Happy (and safe) Halloween @ you! Today I’m sharing a snippet from Blood Stoned, a new Maggie Jenks (Jinx) title. “Concentrate,” I muttered, frustrated by my latest attempt to master the mage-light spell. I finally produced a light but as I sat cross-legged on my narrow cot, willing the sputtering flame to cooperate and not catch the cabin on fire, it skidded across the ceiling, leaving a scorched trail. Just as I thought I had it under control, the soft sound of something...

Hi. It’s WVSU Homecoming this weekend and I’ll be away from the computer most of the time but will visit author snippets as I can and catch up on Monday if I get too far behind. Thanks in advance for any comments.  I’m continuing last week’s scene from Acquisitions & Mergers, Unlikely Gentlemen Book 3. After Evan, there had been a long period of nobody, and then in a moment of rebellion against her husband’s death, she’d  flirted with disaster in the form of Bernard Martin. But she couldn’t accept...

Brrrrr…it’s cold outside. Not a gradual cooling off, either; where I live, the temperature dropped from 82 degrees (F) on Thursday to 36 degrees last night. I’m doing my part to heat things up this weekend with another snippet from Unlikely Gentlemen, Book 3, Acquisitions & Mergers. Continuing the opening scene but forward a bit from last week. “Will there be anything else, Mr. Martin?” “Summarize,” he ordered, waving his hand at the ledger listing the merchandise currently in stock. “Thirteen boxes of peaches, twelve...

Hi everyone.  Whew, busy week. I had a plot problem I couldn’t resolve, and retreated to the yard for manual labor and think time.  Soooo…the Halloween decorations are up, fall chrysanthemums planted, fish pond prepped for winter, pool closed down, and my rake and I are poised to do battle with the leaves already falling from the trees. For this week’s snippet, I’m posting another scene from Acquisitions  & Mergers, the reason my yard received all that attention. The bell over the door still jangled from Cain’s...

Hey everyone! I’m all set for fall…how about you? I always dread the end of summer, then I get a whiff of autumn spice in the air and my allegiance to sand, sun, and sea disappears. Before I post another snippet I want to say thank you for all of the wonderful comments and feedback you’ve shared. Last week’s fantastic reception of Acquisitions & Mergers  kept me walking on air. Thank you all again! For this weekend, I’m posting another snippet from my Unlikely Gentlemen, Book 3 title, Acquisitions...

I’m changing stories and genres today and returning to my American historical series, posting first lines from Acquisitions and Mergers. We’re  in Isaca, Texas, 1889, for Unlikely Gentlemen, Book 3. Beth Harper sighed as she polished the counter. It was a normal day at the store, a little slow but that gave her plenty of time to catch up on her work. She’d sorted and filed the mail, shelved the canned goods, and swept the floor. If no customers came into the Isaca Mercantile in the next few moments, she could flip over the sign...

Hi everyone. This week I’m posting one last snippet from Hunter’s Pride, Jinx 2. Hope you enjoy. Flexing his claws and purring as he listened to the little witch, Hunter peered at her from the limb where he perched above the chicken coop. He’d been on watch all night, guarding her as she slept. Once he’d even chased off a badger that had come to steal a chicken. “Come down from there now,”  Maggie ordered him as her magic drifted upward, bathing him in orgasmic bliss. “You are not sleeping in that tree any more.”...

Greetings everyone! Here in the U.S. Monday is Labor Day, so we’ll be turning up the music and lighting the torches around the pool tonight for an end of summer neighborhood party. Have a fun filled weekend wherever you are and stay safe! Today, I’m posting another snippet from Hunter’s Pride, the second story in my Old West paranormal series titled Jinx, about a magically-challenged witch named Maggie Jenks and Hunter, her shape-changing (sometimes man sometimes jaguar) mate . The moon, a brilliant white light in the sky,...

Weekend Writing Warriors

Hi everyone. It’s been a lovely week for writing. I knocked out 10k on the sequel to Cat Nip. In light of that, I’m sharing first lines from Hunter’s Pride, Jinx 2. (This is an unedited snippet and who knows where it might end up in final draft). I dropped off some eggs at the El Diablo Saloon early this morning and visited Langdon Mars afterward. The bar owner’s condition is worse and though each individual healing temporarily replenishes him, the periods in between his need are shorter. In the process of...
