Weekend Writing Warriors

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone. Yesterday, I did a marathon all day trek through the mall one last time (I hope) and caught the last minute sales. Now, it’s wrapping time… Ho…Ho…Ho…. For my eight this week, I’m sharing the rest of last week’s scene from Cur and below I’ve posted the revised cover with its new lettering. Sara scooped up a handful of pebbles to throw at Riley when his hand hovered over his gun. “You owe me that horse,” Riley whined. “It was part of the...

Greetings, Earthlings. I hope everyone’s shopping, baking, decorating, and writing are moving along smoothly. I’m sharing another snippet from Cur  today. Also giving you a sneak peak at my cover although there are font and word placement issues to correct. “Pick up your gear and move along, Riley; I don’t have time for your belly-aching,” Cur Villalobos murmured, aiming his words at the paddock he was studying, not bothering to turn around. In spite of the mild tone, his words carried back to the ranch hands and the rest of the...

Hi everyone. I’m sharing a few more lines from Cur, my current wip. This scene is a bit ahead of last week’s snippet. Cur© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved.   “Can you drive a team?” Cur asked his bride, trying to get some kind of a response other than the usual tight nod. When she pushed the ugly spectacles higher on her nose, he noticed freckles he’d not been close enough to see the day before. “I have a dog.” Hell, he knew she had a dog; the animal had raced beside him the whole way up the rutted lane, announcing his...

Blood Stoned_Chapter Nine

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story Chapter Nine   Normally, I would have stopped Hunter from attending a healing. But we’d just been attacked by vampire bats, and at the moment, nothing felt normal. As a matter of fact, after Hawk declared me the victim of choice for the blood-suckers, my protests weakened considerably as my independence took a back seat to fear. I didn’t even argue when Lynx, Wolf, and Hawk tagged-along to Willow Springs. Hunter accompanied me into the saloon, but the other three...

Happy Holidays to authors and readers and anyone else who wanders in. Today, I’m sharing another snippet from my erotic historical western, Cur. I introduced my hero, Cur Villalobos last week here. This week I’m moving ahead in the story with a scene from my heroine’s POV—meet Sara. “Well, that’s that, it’s done, he’s coming back with a preacher tomorrow morning,” Sara told her mother. “He’s an awfully big man,” Harriet Conner offered hesitantly, wearing the same bewildered expression she’d worn since her husband’s...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Lot’s of things to be thankful for today. I’d wax poetic but I have a turkey to stuff and get in the oven. Suffice it to say that if you’re here, I’m glad to know you, and you’ve enriched my year. Have a wonderful 2014 Thanksgiving! gem P.S. If you’re craving something sweet for after the feast, here’s some cowboy candy for dessert! *Ahem That’s my baby over in the corner. If you haven’t experienced Edge Grayson in all his nekkid glory, this might a fine time to grab a copy of Unlikely...

Blood Stoned_Chapter Eight

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story Chapter Eight Undoubtedly, sunrise had chased away some of the bats, but the thick ring of ash circling the ambit testified to how many of the blood-sucking creatures had died during the attack. Waiting for the backlash of death magic to hit me, I sprawled limp as a noodle next to Hunter. But nothing more disturbing than the rumble of my empty stomach interrupted the silence. The scrape of Hunter’s rough tongue along my cheek cleared a little more fuzziness from my brain...

Hi everyone.  To all of you fellow U.S. residents, Happy Thanksgiving! The picture on the left was taken from my back door. It’s not great quality, but in case you’ve never seen one, that’s a wild turkey on our deck. Behind it in the yard is an entire flock. I’m not kidding when I say I live where bear, deer, and all kinds of non-domestic critters roam. And now for my snippet. Today, I’m sharing a first look at Cur, an erotic historical western I’ve been working on. Cur Villalobos intended to have the...

Hi everyone. We had our first snow sighting this week although rather than the storm predicted it turned out to be no more than a few flakes to enjoy. For those of  you who received the brunt of the blizzard, take care and stay warm! I’m posting a final snippet from Blood Stoned today. Thank you for all the wonderful feedback each week. Next week I’ll be sharing intro lines from Cur, my erotic western coming out next month.   A boulder the size of a small horse stood in my path, and for want of anything better to focus on, I...

Blood Stoned_Chapter Seven

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story Chapter Seven Wincing, I squatted next to the glowing embers and used a stick to stir flames into life. I needed coffee. The fixings were stacked next to the campfire and I helped myself to beans and the grinder. After I’d set the brew to perk, I chose a spot on the log close to the blaze so I could inspect my foot. The thistle had embedded itself beneath two layers of skin, and I had to dig it out. I squinted at the pesky thorn once I had it in hand. Hard to believe such a...
