Sorry I’m late, Snippetteers — it’s before midnight somewhere, right? Work on Back Door into Purgatory has been terribly slow — so much so that I’m reluctant to post on a weekly basis, because it reminds me how little I’ve actually gotten written during the week. But I’d like to share a bit of my most recent writing. Can’t give you any background — that would be a spoiler — but I hope you enjoy!

Something heavy jumped onto Tiernan’s abdomen, jolting him out of restless sleep. He manifested a knife from his crystal hand even before he was fully awake; he’d had to kill too many nocturnal predators to count during his wanderings. Waiting, even waiting for his eyes to open, was a luxury he rarely had under those circumstances.

Nothing was trying to kill him yet, though. And whatever was crouched on his bladder was too damned small to feel so heavy.

“Are you going to kill me, or just wait there until I piss myself?”

Hello, Snippetteers! — sorry it’s been so long, I’ve been dealing with a massive case of writer’s block, and frankly, it’s been kind of a downer some weeks to look at the WIP and realize that I barely have enough new material since the previous week to make up a snippet! But things are slowly getting better, and I wanted to share what I’ve been up to. Sorry it’s another seven-sentence wonder, but I couldn’t knock off the first sentence, and it’s only three words, so… (Setanta, by the way, is Lasair and Bryce’s blind runt Fade-hound puppy.) (And I think this one requires just a bit of context — Lasair and Bryce are talking about Bryce’s insistence that he doesn’t “deserve” love.)

********

“Look at Setanta.” Lasair nodded toward the Fade-hound puppy, whose head now rested on his front paws and whose back end eagerly responded to the sound of his name.

Bryce obediently turned his head and arched a brow. “If he’s going to fart every time we say his name, we might want to start spelling.”

“I am trying to be serious here.” An impossible task, needless to say, especially with amusement finally lighting his lover’s dark eyes. “Does the Odorous One fret over what to give us, or what we are willing to give him, or whether he has earned what we give him?”

Happy New Year, all! — I meant to be here last weekend, but I was a little bit preoccupied with my furnace going out repeatedly in below-zero weather. o.O Not how I’d planned to spend my New Year’s weekend, that’s for sure!

I’m wrestling with the section of the WIP I’m working on right now… it’s either going to be amazing, or it’s going to be a total shambles. And I have no clue which it’s going to end up. This is a Fiachra-and-Peri scene — Peri’s just come home from a night out clubbing in his drag persona, Falcon. Falcon’s not your typical drag queen, though — she’s a ‘fish’, presenting as a really stunningly gorgeous woman, very quiet, very don’t-touch-me. And Fiachra is as much in love with Falcon as he is with Peri.

*********

“You’re sure?” Fiachra lifted Peri’s hand—Falcon’s, actually, those were her silver-gilt nails flashing in the light from the side table—and kissed the back of it. “Your first time would be a poor occasion to fuck up this whole consent thing.”

“It’s not—”

Yes. Yes, it is. Falcon was quite possibly the most virginal virgin ever.

Hello, Snippetteers! — (a special hello to my South African friends!) I’m sitting here typing around a cat, fingers flying (ha!) as I try to make a midnight deadline. Here’s a hot off the presses look at BACK DOOR INTO PURGATORY, the final installment in the SoulShares series. Six sentences — hey, I made it, for once! — the POV character is Peri (Peregrine Took Katsura), who has just come home from a night of clubbing to face something he’d never anticipated. Though he probably should have…

********

Peri knew the look in Fiachra’s eyes. Funny how it had been the same look when those eyes were blue as glacier ice—-he liked it better now, when Fiachra’s eyes were even darker than his own, but he’d know the look anywhere.

And right now, that look was a complication he wasn’t sure he was ready to handle. Not when it was directed at Falcon.

“Let me go change, aisuruhito—-my feet are killing me.” Not quite true; stiletto heels were like bedroom slippers to him, but if he could get out of Falcon’s shoes, he could get out of the rest of her, and be open to what his scair-anam so obviously wanted.

Hello, Snippetteers! — sneaking in under the wire this weekend, with a glimpse at Cuinn and Rian’s chapter in BACK DOOR INTO PURGATORY. (If you’re conversant with the SoulShares series, you’re going to love this book — I’m treating myself to giving each couple/threesome their own chapter, revisiting what I — and, I hope, you — love best about each of them. This week’s snippet is Cuinn and Rian, and that’s all the setup I’m going to give you. *winks*

********

Cuinn’s mouth felt suddenly dry. “You… need it to hurt?” The lad had been an insatiable pain slut, well known to the S&M underground of Belfast, before he’d found the consummation he hadn’t known he’d been looking for, in Cuinn and in the Pattern.

“Only enough to remind me I’m yours.” The fiery gaze turned skyward, for a fraction of a second. “Yours and not hers.”

Hello, Snippetteers! — sorry to have been away so long, but for those of you who haven’t been following my mini-saga on Facebook, one of my cats, Captain Jack Harkness, ran away just after we moved, at the end of August; he came home mid-September half starved and with a broken jaw, so we’ve been through surgery and tube feeding and waking up in the middle of the night for feedings… but Jack is fine now, apart from a few shaved patches that are acutely embarrassing to him (not to mention itchy), and eating like a horse (well, a pony) to make up for lost time.

And here’s a snippet from the work in progress, BACK DOOR INTO PURGATORY, the ninth and last SoulShares book. I decided to be mean this time and stick with the six sentence rule no matter what. Enjoy! 😉

Josh leaned forward, took his weight on his hands, and brushed his lips across Conall’s. “Want me to unbind you?”

“No.” Conall swallowed a lump in his throat. “Take me. Just like this.”
