Saturday Snark


Hey guys! Today’s little bit of snark comes from the Carved In Flesh anthology which is due out from Storm Moon Press September 14th. The title of my story is Faded Love. I picked the title for one simple reason: scars fade, but real love doesn't. :)


Make sure to check out Marie Sexton's blog for the other links!



The swift tap to Ashley’s upturned ass had him blushing. It had been a week since anything even close to an erection had happened to him. Now here he was popping a boner. Talk about timing. Ashley staggered when his feet hit the tile floor, a bit lightheaded. Confused—and more than a little pissed—he stared at the ground; his greasy hair hid his face. So, when a pair of jeans landed at his feet, no one was more surprised than him. Snapping his head up, he found Will undressing.

“What the hell are you doing?”

“What does it look like I’m doing? Playing poker? I’m undressing.” Will tossed his shirt and Ashley had to bite his lip to keep from moaning out loud. “Last thing you need is to fall in the shower. A broken leg is not on the list, Ashley.”

Will turned on the shower. “The nurse—before she fled after having a tray thrown at her head—said the scar was healing nicely. You can get it wet now. So, take the bandage off while I get the jets fixed.”
Ashley wanted to scream in rage, cry, and beat his head against the nearest wall. After that, he wanted to beat Will’s head against that same wall. The last thing he wanted to do was take the bandage off in front of Will. Will would see how ugly he was now.

There will be more about Will and Ashley this week.  Faded Love is a short story, but it deals with some major issues.

  3. Totally hooked in! I get the feeling the shower isn't going to be the only thing generating steam.

  4. I'm sorry if I'm about to ask a question that ends with an obvious answer, but when you say that there will be more Will and Ashley this week, do you mean that you are going to tell their whole story, chapter by chapter, or are you just going to throw in a few snarky scenes from the story, here and there? Personally, I'm hooked and would love to read the whole story, but, of course, the decision is up to you. Again, I'm so sorry if this was a idiotic thing of me to ask. :)

    1. Hey Anon. No question is stupid, trust me!

      I can't put the whole story up because its part of Storm Moon's anthology. I sold the story to them and they will be releasing my story, along with several others, on Sept 14th. So basically the story isn't mine any more to do with as I please since they own the rights to it.

      Saturday Snark is a way to put excerpts on WIP (works in progress) or books either about to be released or have been released to the market place. Or it could be just stuff authors may not plan to send to a publisher. Each week I, and several other authors that part in this blog hop, take something from a story to show; so there is no chapters involved in this.:)

      What I meant was that I plan to talk about where the story came from, what inspired it, maybe do an interview on Ashley or Will... things like that.

      Hope that helps! :)

  5. I would like to read this one, especially b/c of how self-conscious I am of the extensive scars left from many back surgeries I've had. congrats M!

  7. Oh, you know I have a thing for hot men. Scars don't change hot. But sometimes it takes someone special to help a man see that.
