The always lovely, always sexy and sassy Sandra Bunino asked me to be her guest for her All Things Girl series (every Monday). My topic is one near and dear to my heart, succubi. So, if you want to know a little bit more about these creatures and why I like writing about them so much, take a swing by Sandra’s blog and give my post, Succubus Revealed, a read!
And if you haven’t read the earlier posts in her series yet, you should.
I just wrote my 50,000th word a few minutes ago, on November 27th, at 1:51 PM Pacific. Buried in those 50,000 words was the last word of draft one of The Succubus Wiki! All Praise the completed WIP and behold the fruits of my labor…the first of many more to come I hope:
And I get one of these too (in addition to the t-shirt I am compelled to buy each year):
I took a little longer this year because I was also editing the manuscript of my alter ego’s forthcoming debut novel and a short story coming out in an anthology in a few more days. Busy busy. But slow and steady wins the race and when that fails there is the awesomeness I highly recommend called Write or Die.
NaNo is most fun immediately before it begins and immediately after it concludes–kind of like conception and delivery of a baby, only I birthed a literary baby, a whopping 50,025 word baby. He’s kinda ugly right this second, but he’s all mine, mine, mine and I love him!

Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you’d care to leave.
This teaser comes from a short story I wrote during NaNo for the “Succubus Wiki”. The Wiki will be an anthology of short stories featuring a variety of succubi from all different worlds and genres. Kind of an erotic sampler. This six is from the last (yay!) tale I wrote to complete the first draft. It’s also one of my favorites of the bunch.
Willow’s story is set in Greek Mythology, a sort of tongue-in-cheek tale of a succubus who’s been sentenced to Purgatory for whatever spurious offense she committed against a God or Goddess.
Once a year, the residents participate in a lottery to see who will duel for their freedom. The winner is set free and the loser is shipped off to Hades.
In this six, Willow is learning more about her opponent in the battle, Helveticus. Don’t laugh at his name. I stared at a blank Word document for quite a while before this idea came to me. Helveticus speaks first:
“Mars is my father.”
“Oh, you’re Italian? That explains the Latin on your walls, I guess.”
He moves closer still. “Lilith is my mother.”
My smile withers.
Uh-oh! Why is Willow worried? What does being the son of Mars and Lilith imply?

Welcome to my seventh “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might leave me.

Priscilla’s story is a western set on a ranch. She is the widow of the former owner and is now the Flying P’s manager. Since good help is hard to find, she’s careful to keep the feeding of her succubus needs discrete and directed away from her ranch hands. Occasionally, she slips up.

Gray grins, his mouth full of half-chewed biscuits. “I slept like a baby myself.”
The others snort back their laughter.
I sigh. I don’t know why I expected better from Gray. But little boys must be taught their lessons, and the first one is don’t fuck with a succubus who holds your soul in hock.
Uh-oh, I think someone’s in some deep cow patties.
