#WriteTip - Consider the Audio by @LeaBronsen, spotlighting her @InsatiablePress #AudioBook #NewRelease

Having only just broken my audiobook virginity not too long ago (*cough* Submissive on Display *cough*), I can totally get behind this short writing tip from Lea Bronsen. It should come as no surprise that she has an audiobook to promote (yes, all this word repetition is making my inner editor cringe as well). Find out all about it after this short writing tip break. 


Write as if your book might be released in audio, because you never know!
The reason I'm advising this today is that I wrote my contribution to this anthology in response to an eBook submission call, and it wasn't until a few weeks prior to release that I learned it would come out in audio, too. If I had known earlier, I would have written my story in a much more direct, spoken style, with shorter sentences and less prose! lol, lesson learned. I still hope my listeners will enjoy the book! ~ Lea Bronsen

Come Aboard by Lea Bronsen 

Lorna, a young American reporter, travels to a port town in France to cover a yacht race. She hopes she’ll be able to experience her wildest fantasy on the beach – sex in public. Due to getting on the wrong train, she has an argument with the controller, who she finds both immensely sexy and annoyingly arrogant.

When he brings her to the engine, pretending to restrain her but instead getting intimate with her, she sees the opportunity to live out her fantasy…


If lucky, I might even meet a handsome Frenchman with whom to spend Saturday night. I’m single, have been for the past few months, and at twenty-three, the lack of sex for such a long time is driving me half-nuts. An interlude with a local hotness on one of the warm beaches of Sables sounds like an irresistible idea. Yes, a beach, or any other public place. The eBook I’m reading features a heroine getting the fuck of her life in an open park at night against a tree in full view of passersby. I want that kind of excitement, too. The three boyfriends I’ve had in the past few years were good in bed but not daring enough. I yearn for someone to do something crazy and a little forbidden with me, in public visibility. Surely, that hint of dangerousness, the possibility of being caught by the authorities, should increase the sexual experience—and our orgasms—tenfold.

For now, I’ll have to do with checking out the cute Maghrebian controller while waiting for him to examine my ticket. Row after row, he walks the narrow aisle toward me, distributing polite smiles to the passengers and answering questions. Tall and broad-shouldered, he has the looks and build of a soccer player. A black tribal tattoo appears below the short sleeve of his purple shirt and travels down his sun-kissed, muscular forearm. Beneath his gray cap, he sports a short buzz cut, and two or three days’ worth of black beard stubble covers his cheeks and chin, just enough to make him…oh, God, immensely sexy. With full lips, a strong nose, and black olive-shaped eyes, he’s a gem of North Africa, an exotic, roughly polished jewel. He would definitely fit in my fuck-on-the-beach fantasy.

The Power of Fantasies

by Starla Kaye

  • Having sex in a body of water (pool, hot tub, lake, or ocean)

  • Being seen by others
  • Being ravished
  • Being in complete control
  • Having other male partners
  • Bisexuality

In case you prefer the text version...

Cowboy Dreamin’

by Starla Kaye 

Kendra spends her days and nights running a business, sculpting, and leading a Tahitian dance group in Kauai. She can’t squeeze anything else into her life, but she dreams of cowboys. Sexy, hot cowboys in tight jeans, low-tipped Stetsons, and dusty boots. Men who know all about how to please a woman. She enjoys her fantasies, but can’t imagine ever settling down. But one night with one would be so nice. Surely that would get her dreams of a white knight cowboy sweeping her off her feet out of her system.

Because of an accident that Shane believes left him “less of a man,” he doesn’t see a wife and children in his future. Carson, his ranching partner—and sometimes lover—thinks Shane is wrong. Carson refuses to let Shane settle for a life of rodeo bunnies who only want a romp in bed with a bull rider. Shane deserves more than that. He manages to sign Shane up with a matchmaking service to, hopefully, meet another kind of woman, maybe someone who will appreciate Shane for the man he is. Except Madame Evangeline expects both of the cowboys to go on this special one night date. It doesn’t take long for either cowboy to realize that one night with the purple-haired, hip-shaking beauty in Kauai might not be enough….


“Let’s take care of our cowboy.”

Before Shane could protest, Carson gripped his hip and held tight while he pounded into Shane’s ass. Shane turned red. He grunted and strained. What did it feel like to have a thick cock up your ass? She couldn’t be certain, but she didn’t think this was new to them.

When she couldn’t stand it any longer, she squirmed as close as she could and feathered soothing kisses on Shane’s agonized ace. She inhaled the scent of two aroused men, mixed with her own scent. Needing to comfort him even as he suffered pleasure/pain, she stroked his muscled arms and his sweat-covered chest, whispering words of encouragement to them both.

When Carson roared his release, Shane grabbed hold of her. He pressed his mouth to hers and kissed the blazes out of her. Seconds later, Carson rolled away and Shane flattened her to the bed.

He climbed over her, panting, frantic. He drove his shaft into her in one long thrust. Nothing held them back this time, no protesting that he wasn’t man enough. He rode her hard, fast until they both cried out.

#WriteTip - Secondary Characters Need Stories, Too by @JSubject, spotlighting her @DecadentPub #AudioBook and $10 #Giveaway

My Decadent Publishing cohort and newsletter coordinator extraordinaire Jessica Subject has a brand new audiobook release. Before she presents audio sample for Beneath the Starry Sky, I asked her to give me yet another writing tip. To be fair, the word count limit on the 1Night Stand series does make this one rather difficult. 

[Psst.... There's $10 Giveaway at the bottom. Don't forget to scroll down!]

Secondary Characters Need Stories, Too!

by Jessica Subject

Thank you so much to Tara for inviting me back!

My writing tip for today is inspired by my recent audio book release. Beneath the Starry Sky was the second 1Night Stand story I wrote for the line at Decadent Publishing, and was inspired by the first one. Tamara, the heroine of BTSS was a secondary character in Celestial Seduction, Carrie’s best friend. She told Carrie of her experience with the 1Night Stand dating service. Yikes! She’s had her date already, but I hadn’t wrote it. So, I sat down to tell her story. It may have been out of order, but I wrote it.

So, if you’re ever stuck for ideas, or if a certain secondary character has tied up your muse because they want their story written, go ahead and do it.

If you get a chance, I hope you enjoy Tamara’s story in Beneath the Starry Sky!

Beneath the Starry Sky ~ An Audio Book!

A 1Night Stand story

By Jessica E. Subject

Narrated by Audrey Lusk

Left at the altar with bald patches on her head and her self-confidence stripped away, Tamara Johnson must pick up the pieces of her life and face her Alopecia Areata, the autoimmune disease causing her hair to fall out. She is convinced no man will date a bald woman and arranges a one-night stand through Madame Evangeline’s popular service, 1Night Stand. With her new wig held firmly in place, Tamara arrives at the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas for a night of passion and pleasure. Anything more than one night would mean exposing her bald head, and she will never do that to any man again.

Running into the Castillo Hotel, away from the paparazzi constantly at his heels, Josh Summers wants to spend his next few days locked away from the flashing lights and screaming fans. When he finds an incredibly sexy woman lying on his hotel room bed in nothing but lingerie, he thinks management has made a mistake. Leaving her behind, he heads for the lobby to get the situation rectified. But an unexpected text from Madame Evangeline sends him back to his room. Though unsure whether the woman on the bed is really his perfect match or just another fan believing him to be like his character on television, he knows he must find out, even if it means he must risk telling her his own secrets. If Tamara can handle his imperfections, she just might be his ideal woman.
