I seriously enjoyed the conversations I had based on last week's question. I basically spent all week long imagining I was in a dive bar (mine was in Amsterdam, and I'm ready to go back). So I thought I'd try again. Rather than simply say, "What's your favorite type of candy?" or "How do you deal with anger?" I'm putting this out:
You wake up slowly. The room is the perfect temperature—not too hot, not too cool. You don't open your eyes right away—you bask for a moment. Yeah, baby, you float. There's that sensation of almost being awake but not quite, and you linger there for as long as you want. No alarm clock will go off. No one is waiting for you. This is perfection.
The pillows are that sublime sensation of soft meets firm. The sheets are your ideal sheets (satin, flannel, 400-thread count). This is the bed of your dreams.
You stretch. You yawn. You open your eyes and look out the window.
Where are you?
When I was with Byron—near the bitter end of our twisted relationship—I would dream that I was in bed with Connor. The dreams were so fucking real, that I would wake up and be certain—100%, swear on my life—that Connor was next to me. Black jeans. Black t-shirt. Wave of blond hair. I'd sit up gently in the bed, peek over to see... Not Connor but Byron.
And I'd be crushed.
Now, speaking of fantasies and dreamy bedrooms... I'm in bed with some seriously phenomenal authors right now. Kiki Howell, Selena Kitt, Sommer Marsden, Skye Warren and I are all part of an erotic bundle. I am delighted at the concept, because years ago (six years, I think) I came up with the idea for readers to "Pay as You 'O.'" I'd put up a story—readers could download it for free—and then I asked them to Paypal me what they thought it was worth. I'm working on rebooting the idea right now, because I adored the thrill. Sure, some people didn't pay at all. Some paid more than they probably should have. This was a winning situation, but I got bogged down by other projects and let the project slide.
Right now, for the bundle, you can peruse the selection and pay what you think we're worth.

I have multiple reasons right now of asking you to support your favorite indie authors.
I'll be sharing more bit by bit.
