Forbidden Desires

Tonight (er... 2:20am) I finished Forbidden Desires, the sequel to Secret Desires (due early 2009 through Siren Publishing). I have to check it over for spelling, punctuation, and just bad grammer, then I'll submit it to Siren Publishing and hope for the best.

[Erotic Paranormal, Werewolves, M/M/M, Male Ménage a Trois Romance]
No blurb yet, sorry. I'm still working on it. As soon as I get one worked out in my head, I'll add it.


Full Moon Mating

I've just finished Full Moon Mating a couple of days ago and submitted it. Hopefully, I'll hear something back in a couple of weeks.

Here's a small blurb to wet your appetite:
[Erotic Paranormal, Werewolves, M/M]

Sheriff Joe Nash couldn’t have been more surprised when he answered a call to a shooting and discovers the sexiest man he had ever seen. His extraordinary response to the man tells him immediately that Nate is his mate. Taking a chance, Joe takes him home, hoping to convince him to stay.

But Nate Summers is on the run from someone, never staying in one place for more than a few days. The tall handsome sheriff and his offer of a safe haven intrigue Nate, but he’s afraid that if he sticks around, the sheriff will discover his secret, a secret that could make the sheriff hate him.

First Edit for Secret Desires

Yesterday, I recieved the first edit for Secret Desires. It was a lot less painful than I thought it would be, even though I had to add an entire chapter. I had the edits done and returned back in by 2am this morning. Hopefully, there won't be too much more to edit. I did hear from Siren that they will have the cover to me for my approval real soon. I can hardly wait.

I could just scream!

Okay, I'm losing my ever loving mind. Last night, I went up to my room, pulled out my laptop, and got settled in to write while my husband watched TV. Logged into my email and my laptop went crazy. Now, we're going to have to reformat the enitre thing. Everything that was on my laptop is lost. Luckily, I tend to transfer stuff to my desktop pc every morning. I just hope I remembered everything.

Had to share!!!

Okay, I just had to share this. It has nothing to do with my writing but it was just too funny. I have two dogs, Mook and Rascal. They are my babies. Today, we were in the backyard when they spotted a squirel. They went nuts, barking and jumping. The squirel... he started yelling back, throwing things at them. My poor babies looked so confused. I couldn't stop laughing. They couldn't understand why the squirel didn't want to play with them.

Carol Lynne Interview

Today I'm interviewing author Carol Lynne. She has been one of my favorite authors for some time and I have read everything she has written. I first talked to Carol about a year ago when I emailed her as a fan after reading her Men in Love series. She emailed me back right away. She has always been good to her fans. I would like to thank Carol for doing this interview with me. She was the inspiration that started me writing.

If you haven't had a chance to read her work, I would suggest you try it out. She's brought me to tears, made me laugh, and caused me to fall in love with her characters. Check her out at her website.

Q: What is your normal day like?
A: Well, besides taking care of two young children, I’m usually in front of my laptop. I generally only write about 7 or 8 hours though. The rest of the time I’m answering emails, talking on IM, or brainstorming future stories.

Q: What about writer's block?
A: I’ve been very fortunate and have never experienced writer’s block. Oh, there are times during the month when the last thing I want to think about is sex, but it goes away. Thanks god!

Q: What would you say is a true hero?
A: Of course the usual answer is someone who puts their own mortality aside and thinks only of others, and I totally agree with that. On a personal level my answer would be quite different. I look up to people who’ve been hurt in the past but can still let their guard down enough to let others in. It’s not an easy thing to do, and I admire those who can.

Q: How do you know if you’ve written a good story?
A: If the book makes me cry while writing it, I usually know it’ll touch others as well.

Q: Which comes first, the story, the characters or the setting?
A: Definitely the characters. My favorite part of any new book is exploring the characters in depth.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about writing?
A: I enjoy the freedom and duality of writing. At home I’m mommy, but when I log on to my laptop, I become Carol Lynne. It’s like having a secret garden in your own home.

Q: Do you have a favorite character?
A: Well, don’t tell Jake and Cree, but the more I write about Nate, the more I like him. I’d have to say he’s every character I’ve written rolled into one man.

Q: Which of your books did you have the most fun writing?
A: That’s a toss up between All Play and No Work and Karaoke at the Tumbleweed.

Q: Which book was the hardest to write?
A: There are actually two that were difficult to get on paper. Finnegan’s Promise was written soon after my father’s death. I cried ninety percent of the time writing that one. The other would be my upcoming Ellora’s Cave release, No Longer His. That particular book helped me deal with a lot of issues I’ve been carrying around in my hip pocket.

Q: Why do you write in this genre?
A: Gee, I’m asked that all the time, and you know, I’m still not sure. I think it has something to do with my inexperience with healthy M/F relationships. It’s much easier to imagine two men loving each other for me.

Q: Do you ever feel weird writing gay erotica?
A: Not at all. It might if I wrote it because it was the hot genre or for the money, but I write it because I truly love it. How can I feel weird about doing what I love?

Q: What project you're working on now?
A: I’m presently working on another book in the Cattle Valley series, and I’m getting ready to wind up the Campus Cravings series.

Q: How did you come up with Cattle Valley?
A: Actually, I’ve caught quite a bit of flack for my gay men in the Campus Cravings books. I hear people say no way can there be that many gay men in that town. Well, I live close to Kansas University, and I’m here to tell you I haven’t even tapped the surface.
So, when I decided to create a new series, the last thing I wanted was to hear the same remarks. I wanted the books to be about the characters and not how many gay men were in a particular town. That’s when I came up with the idea of Cattle Valley. There, it doesn’t matter what your sexual orientation is. The stories are simply about the characters.

Q: You have Men in Love, Cattle Valley, Campus Cravings, and the Good-time Boys. Any other series you're thinking about?
A: I just returned from a week at a working cattle ranch in Montana. I’m hoping to use my experiences to write a new series. There will be cowhands, wranglers, and guests. It should be a lot of fun, and I do love some cowboys.

Q: What made you want to become a writer?
A: Here’s another answer people don’t like. I never even considered writing before I turned forty. One day I woke up with a story in my head. I wanted to read a ménage, but I really wanted the men to touch and love each other. At the time, there weren’t many out there. I started on the internet and searched for the book that was on my mind. When I was unable to find it, I sat down at the computer I’d inherited from my father only two months prior and wrote Branded by Gold. That first book took me two weeks to complete, and I was hooked. I never imagined I could use my wild and crazy dreams in such a way.

Q: What's the best writing advice you've ever received?
A: Write what you love, because readers will be able to tell the difference.

Q: What's your favorite thing about writing? Your least favorite?
A: Doing something so incredibly rewarding. I love when a reader emails to tell me how much they’ve enjoyed one of my stories. Sometimes I feel guilty because not everyone gets that kind of feedback from their job.
My least favorite part would have to be putting my stories out there to be criticized. I know it goes hand in hand with my favorite part, but there it is. It’s not that I hate it when someone doesn’t enjoy one of my books, but when someone comments, and they haven’t taken the time to read the book, it really bothers me.

Q: Do you find your books draw you in and it is hard to let go once you have finished?
A: Yes and no. When I’m writing, I feel totally immersed in my characters. By the time the book is finished, I’ve given those characters what they needed, and I’m ready to move on to the next lonely souls.

Q: What advice would you give to someone who has an idea for a book, but doesn't know where or how to begin?
A: The biggest advice I can give anyone is to find a routine and stick to it. You may only have time for thirty minutes a day, but make sure you give yourself that every single day. Even if you’re stumped and don’t know what to write next, sit in that chair. Getting the work ethic down is the most important part in my opinion.

Q: What is your favorite quote?
A: Gee, I’m not sure who said this, probably someone long dead. "If you have to crawl to live, stand and die." That quote brings tears to my eyes every time I read it or say it.

Q: Tell us one thing your readers might not know about you?
A: Having double jointed hips isn’t necessarily a good thing. LOL

Check out Carol's site and see what she has coming up next. http://www.carol-lynne.net/

Secret Desires

[Erotic Paranormal, Werewolves, M/M/M, Male Ménage a Trois Romance]

How do you answer a handsome cowboy when he asks if you want to take a ride on his horse, especially when he guarantees that it will be a wild ride? For Leyland the answer is simple: Hell, yes! But what if his cowboy already has a lover?

Coming early 2009 to Siren Publishing

Author's Page at Siren Publishing

I am so excited!!! My author’s page got put up at Siren Publishing. They even have my two books, Secret Desires and The Katzman’s Mate, listed under coming soon with blurbs and everything. No covers yet but the people at Siren Publishing are really cooking on this. How cool is that?

Yeah, yeah… I know… can you say "my first two books and I’m dying from excitement?" It’s just so weird to actually see my name up there in connection to something I actually created. If I wasn’t sitting cross-legged on my bed with a dog in my lap right now, I get up and dance a jig!

Instead, picture me rolling around on my back, legs wiggling in the air as I yell… "Yippee!!!"

Check me out… http://www.sirenpublishing.com/stormyglenn/



Hi, I’m Stormy Glenn. Well, I did it. I officially signed with Siren Publishing for two new books: The Katzman’s Mate (M/M) and Secret Desires (M/M/M with the Ménage Amour new line). Both will be released early in 2009.

I have also signed with
Torquere Press for one book, A promise Kept (M/M) which will also be released in 2009. I am very excited about working with the people Siren and Torquere. They have all been wonderful.

I love writing almost as much as I love reading. I am amazed by the ability to create new worlds, old worlds, far away worlds. I have several books that I’m working on at any given time so I am never quite sure what will come out next. I’m even working on a sequel to Secret Desires right now. I’ll try to keep you updated.

If you would like to know more about me, come visit me or drop me a line. I love to hear from people.
