Happy October! Welcome to my post in the WIP It Up Wednesday Blog Hop. This is the day when we get to share little snippets of our current work-in-progress. Thank you to Melody for hosting this blog hop. You can find the list of participants on the official WIP IT UP WEDNESDAY blog.
Last week I shared a snippet of a story that I’d been planning to submit to a dark erotic anthology titled Corrupted Desires set to release on October 13th, just in time for Halloween! I thought it would be fun to revisit that story this week and share the anthology cover and blurb in anticipation of its release. (Check back after the 13th for links to get your copy – it will be free.)
First, a brief teaser from my story Come to Me…
“Come to me,” Laura begged the night, “Are you there?”
Her fingers rested on the edge of the planchette. “Are you with me?” she asked again. At first nothing happened but she persisted. Desperation had brought her this far and she was too close to feeling him around her to give up now. Deep within, a desire burned. It traveled down her arms, into her hands, and settled at her fingertips. The planchette glided slowly toward yes and stopped. Laura sucked in a gulp of air and tried to steady her nerves.
“I miss you so much,” she whispered to the board. She looked around at the darkness that flickered in the glow of the candlelight and brushed off the anxiety gnawing at the pit of her stomach. This is what she’d wanted all along, wasn’t it? She returned her attention to the board where her fingers still rested on the planchette and whispered, “Mike, you can’t leave me here alone.”
This time the planchette moved with purpose, darting across the board, pausing only long enough for her to acknowledge one letter before it moved to the next as it spelled out its message. The heat at her fingertips grew with such intensity that she almost let go. Laura’s heart pounded in her chest. He was truly here with her now. She longed to feel his arms around her.
He needs you.
“He? Who is he? Who are you?” she muttered in confusion. Panic filled her veins. If she wasn’t talking to Mike then who was she talking to?
“I’m going to join you,” she said in a hushed voiced. It was the first time she’d said the words out loud even though she’d been planning this moment from the time she’d lost him. “Wherever you are, stay there because I’m coming. Don’t leave me. We’re going to be together again.”
The planchette flew out from under her fingertips and raced to the other end of the board where it settled.
Laura couldn’t move it. She sat back in her chair with wide eyes. In the far corner of the room, she saw a long, dark shadow stretch across the floor. She sank into her chair as the shadow inched closer, reaching out and taking the form of a hand as it brushed across her ankle.
**** WARNING! ****
This book contains extreme BDSM, violence, graphic sexual situations, and dark supernatural and paranormal scenes. This book is only for those aged 18+. It is for those with an open mind and for those who ARE NOT easily offended.
This Halloween there will be no treats, only tricks. Tricks on your blackened mind, that is.
Corrupted Desires is not the sort of book that will have you skipping amongst the daisies and leaves you with that feel good feeling. This jaw dropping, dark erotic book will give you that prickly feeling on the back of your neck. It will send a chill right to your bones and it will most definitely mess with you head.
Allow these nine authors to show you what their definition of corruption is, as they take you down an intensely dark path to the unknown and the unfamiliar on All Hallows’ Eve. Let them bring a whole new meaning to the words “bump in the night.”
****SET TO RELEASE 13TH OCTOBER****
