A Story A Day Challenge: Tender Nips

Tender Nips

“I’m sorry, baby. I didn’t mean anything by it.”

Derrick felt her hand rubbing his back, but her touch could’ve been as cold as ice and he wouldn’t have cared. “I know, it’s just…”

“Just what?”

He let out a breath and turned to look at her. Even with concern etched on her face, she was still the most beautiful woman he’d ever met. That doesn’t give her the right…

“Baby, tell me”

He nodded. “You never did that before.”

“So… you don’t like me biting?”

“Yeah, but not there.”

She paused before saying, “At least I didn’t draw blood.”

A Story A Day Challenge: It’s Time

It’s Time

“Okay, we’re going. Hold tight, Sweetie.”

Hank jerked the car wheel to avoid another car. Smiling, he said, “Man, maybe we should’ve called an ambulance. Don’t you think?”

When she didn’t respond, he assumed his wife was biting her tongue so he could worry about driving. Man, I’ve got me one helluva woman!

He pulled into the hospital’s emergency entrance and jumped out. “Hey! Hey, I need help! My wife’s in labor!”

A pair of orderlies rushed to the car and stopped.


The one nearest to him said, “Sir, you didn’t bring her.”

“But… that’s not in the manual.”

In today’s guest post, I have the immense pleasure of welcoming author Toya Richardson to the blog. Toya, best-known for her romance books THE ATLANTEAN BIRTHRIGHT and FLAME, discusses the development of her works over a period of time, and how it is always beneficial to keep prospective projects on the back burner as they can prove invaluable when one least expects it. I am sure you will find Toya’s experience very interesting and extremely helpful, so, over to you Toya!

First of all I’d like to thank Marcia very much for inviting me to appear on her blog. It means a lot to me :D

I decided to chat about my favourite subject, writing. I’ve always had a vivid imagination and written stories since the tender age of eight. My mum was my biggest supporter and really wanted to see me published. However, that…

A Story A Day Challenge: Born Pain

Born Pain

“Yes! Oh, God, yes!” Phillis arched her back and flung her arms out to her side as she fell onto the bed laughing.

“Aren’t you the comical one?” Phillis’ mom stood in the doorway with a laundry hamper under her arm.

Smiling Phillis rolled off the bed. “What? I thought you said I was supposed to practice?”

Her mom rolled her eyes. “I meant practice safe sex, and you know it. Why do you have to be such a pain.”

Phillis shrugged. Shaking her head, her mom turned to continue on, but Phillis called out, “Maybe dad should be practicing?”

A Story A Day Challenge: The Eyes

The Eyes

Everywhere Jeremy looked, he saw the same yellow tinted eyes staring back at him. It was never worse than that morning while he was shaving. He nearly cut his own throat when they eyes appeared in the mirror across from him.

Now he wished he had

Though he’d grown accustomed to seeing them since he was a child, the fact they appeared more and more had unsettled him.

Even now, as he sat in the shower with the curtain closed and his blood-covered hands holding his eyes, he saw them.

They appeared in every memory, mocking and laughing at him.

A Story A Day Challenge: Coming Clean

Coming Clean

“Give me a break, dude. You ain’t a vampire.” Paul stood against the wall with his arms crossed.

“I am so. You heard of those killing up on Elm last week? That was me. I drank all their blood.”

Paul shook his head. “And why are you telling me this?”

“Cause it’s true, and chick dig the crazies.”

Paul chuckled as he walked over and sat next to his friend. “I know you didn’t.”

“And how is that?”

Paul pulled a knife from its sheath strapped to his ankle. “Cause I used this and didn’t bother cleaning up the blood.”
