"...sliding up, then down"

Whew... what a ride this being a romance author is. Once again, I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. Oh, for the ability to shift into my namesake. Bigger mouth, crunching jaws... raorrrrrr... take that, life!
Crunch, munch... yeah, I can promo and write and do lunch... toss it toward my massive jaws in one giant tasty bunch... snarl, snap... rip and tear... gulp, all done and ready for more.
Yeah, true, I could restrict myself more than I do. Pen less blogs. Spend less time promo-ing my books, my blogs. Yet, there’s always that irresistible urge beyond what I’ve already committed to doing... the latest being a prequel scene I wrote for HERO DAYS at Lindsay’s Romantics blog, fondly known as
THE PINK BLOG ~ It’s two weeks of us authors presenting our romance novel heroes.
Yeppers, the urge got me. I wanted to know what divine mission, Volcano, my hero in
WHEN A GOOD ANGEL FALLS, accomplished so impressively that he was assigned Earth Mission: 2012 Ominous ~ where my novel begins.
While not a shapeshifter, Volcano does shift in various ways. He has his incorporeal and corporeal form. Plus, he has other shape-changing tricks up his angelic sleeve for use on both material worlds and the etheric worlds.
If you’re curious about Volcano and the other hero blogs, I invite you over to Lindsay’s Romantic blog for a look-see. The romance novel hero is also being celebrated at The Romance Studio’s Summer Event until September 20th.
Also, this is my week to post on the main
Romance Studio blog. Wednesday, July 29th, to be exact. I’ve written about the crucial importance of Heroes in this day and age. As an added note, I believe the heroes we create for our stories will become even more important to our readers in the upcoming days, and will have the impact of Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table.
Perhaps, that’s a heavy mantle for some authors to wear. Perhaps, not. Think of it as a personal challenge. What types of heroes inspire you the most? I’m certain those are the very heroes that will inspire your readers.

And... transition here... the Bull is back... a hero with a real set of horns and the bold balls to match.

For the beginning of this bullie woolie tail see my blog ~ ...burning its way through my jeans ~ then, Longest Solar Eclipse... “possessiveness I’ve never known”

X-Serial Flash

New Bull in Town

Oh, god. Someone, please! Shoot the bull. And I don’t mean ‘shootin’ the bull’ as in having a good ole time.
“Shoot the bull,” I threaten in a thready whisper, my lips parched.
Wham! It’s hits me. The two-by-four to the head. I’ve just given him another sex opening he can use to penetrate my sex opening. Oh, god.
“Spread those soft sinful thighs of yours, Shelley. I’ll shoot the bull.” His cock slides, pressing with a bit more force. “But not before you’re fully and deeply pleasured.”
His passion-roughened voice bolts through my bloodstream. Dang! Hang his hide high.

“You can’t keep molesting me,” I scold. “Anyone could show up.”
Heedless of splinters, I clutch the fence post behind me with both hands, so I won’t grab him and jump his handsome naked bones. Or jump on his scorching bone, wrap my legs around him and beg him to take me inside.
Hell, just do it. Take me, I shout inside.
“That’s the advantage of being a bull shifter,” he rasps, “shifting in the nick of time.” He moves an inch closer, his ‘bullhorn’ jabbing my hip with a demanding slow rhythm.
“What a load of bull,” I challenge.

Cave Shelley, Cave!!! Take that bull for a ride! hehe

Oh, but the time it takes to be a Romance author. It's about finding a balance between the writing, promoing and sundry of other important things, I'm sure, but I have yet to figure it out. ;) Perhaps cloning is the answer? LOL A second me to deal with all the extra stuff while I write. I wonder if the extra me will clean bathrooms and wash windows...I hope!

I'm still trying to figure out how much time to devote to promo because it can be a time suck. And then one of these days I'll wake up and not have anything to promote because I didn't have time to write! I'm sure there's a happy medium~

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, I used to think if I had three ME's I could have one for all the outdoor stuff, one for all the domestic inside stuff and one for the writing and creative stuff. Heck, I probably need, at least, another clone now. I guess, the promo/biz clone.

Savanna Kougar said...

Paris, writing always comes first. Ultimately, that's your best promo, that next book.
Still, there is a happy medium... lurking somewhere out there...
And, I do use promo as a break to recharge my writing batteries, at times. I figure I might as well clunk two birds with one stone... villain birds, of course.
