Tuesday Tidbits

By Vivian Arend

Tidbit from Tidal Wave Vivian Arend 2008
“Wait. There’s something you need to see.” Anthony took her by the elbow and led her to the shoreline. He gave a long piercing whistle and the hair on the back of Alexia neck stood up. Joshua stepped behind her, slipped his arm around her waist gently, hushing her when she tensed.

“It’s okay, Alexia. Do you see the dolphins? In the surf?” he asked.

She nodded. Joshua lowered his chin to her shoulder, breathing in her sweet scent as her breath quickened. The dolphins approached, leaping over the waves until they were in chest deep water. A couple of them chattered at the gathering on the shore, their beautiful smiles showing as they turned their heads to the side to watch with bright eyes.

“Lift your arms in the air, Alexia. Tell them you want to see them.”

She turned her head to the side and her lips brushed over his cheek before she pulled back slightly. “Tell them what?”

Joshua lifted his hand to caress over her neck, delighted that she relaxed back into him so naturally. She might be mentally overwhelmed by her behavior but her body knew him. Knew what she needed.

“Tell them to change.”

She snorted softly. “Maybe I’m not the one that’s acting crazy.”

“Trust me.”

Alexia lifted her arms into the air and the dolphins stilled, rising and falling in the swells of the water. “Okay, dolphins, change!” she shouted. She giggled for a second then the sound froze on her lips. Joshua tightened his hold on her as he felt the increase of tension spread throughout her. She sucked in air, her pulse racing wildly.

“It’s impossible.” Her head whipped around to stare at Michael and Anthony who shrugged and gestured back at the ocean.

“If it was impossible you wouldn’t have seen it,” Anthony pointed out. “Improbable is a better word.”

“Thank you, Mr. English teacher,” Michael groaned. “You want to tell the rest of the story now?”

“Wait,” Alexia cried, her finger pointing out to the sea where a dozen hard male bodies all stood in the chest deep water. “What is going on? Where did they come from?” She leant forward slightly and squinted. “Holy cow, is that Braden? And Jake?”

“And the rest of the guys from the dance floor. Yes, it’s them, and you saw where they came from,” Anthony said. “You saw them change from their dolphin forms.

Snags

By Vivian Arend


I’ve hit a snag. I don’t believe it.

Writer’s Block? Nahhh. Just old fashioned following my characters along and suddenly they aren’t doing what I thought -and- I’m not sure how to approach the next section of the novel.

So here we go with a new and crazy situation. I’m going to write the scene a couple of different ways and see which one works. It feels strange not having the answers magically appear under my fingers.

But I can deal with it. It may require large portions of chocolate…

——

On a lighter note, two authors I know and love have been nominated for an EPPIE award. This is the Oscars of the eBook industry and both of them are well deserving of the honours.

Jess Dee has been nominated for her story A Question of Trust in the Anthology Three’s Company by Samhain. Her individual story can be found at MyBookstoreandMore.

Mari Carr has been nominated for Erotic Research, also published by Samhain. Available here.

Good luck, ladies. March is a long time coming, but now I have someone waiting for March with me!

Thursday Things

By Vivian Arend

1. The lesson of Nanowrimo continues even after the contest is over. Just write the story. I’m working on the shifter and flying by the seat of my pants things aren’t going the way I expected.

But instead of stopping, I’m going to keep moving forward and go back later to add/delete as needed. Because I have no idea where this is really headed and because I’ve got a 25K goal it’s not like I have a huge plot to be able to play with.

If I tell the story as the characters tell it to me we’ll get somewhere eventually. Right? Hopefully!

2. Friends are important. I am soooo glad that I don’t have to write in isolation any more. I -like- being able to send things to friends and get feedback. Even when the feedback is ‘hmmm. I don’t get it.’ I’ve been able to see my writing improve because of what others have mentioned to me and I’m grateful.

But more than the writing, it’s nice to have friends to chat with. Laugh with. Worry with. Cyber or IRL, having them there makes my day far more special.

3. In 2008 I started nine stories. I’ve completed five of them.

Hidden Away 52K
Wolf Signs 28K Sold
The Wind and The Sun 15K
Rocky Mountain Heat 30K Submitted
Wolf in Flight 28K
Future Shock 30K/50K
Fae Visions 21K/30K
Yukon Quest 4K/50K
Tidal Wave 9K/ 25K

Since it’s currently Nov 27, I figure by the end of the year I should be able to complete Tidal Wave and Future Shock as well as adding to Fae Visions weekly. That would put my total at seven stories for the year. Not bad for a first year considering I started writing Hidden Away late March.

Tuesday Tidbits

By Vivian Arend

From Tidal Wave Vivian Arend 2008

Alexia opened her eyes to find she lay on soft cushions set on a thick mat of sea grasses, the rough roof of a cave overhead. A few feet away down a sandy shore there was ocean water, the surface smooth and unbroken, the storm’s madness calmed by the shelter of the cave. Darting moonlight sparkled through the entrance, dancing lights changing the hanging stalactites from fearful objects to ones of beauty and peace. She tasted salt on her lips, the scent of something ripe and wonderful filled her nostrils, and she turned to follow it.

The back of the cave was a solid rock platform. A low wooden trunk was set like a table with a bowl of fruit, a flickering candle. Suddenly ravenous, Alexia picked a ripe strawberry from the offering and bit down, its flavor exploding in her mouth. She sat amidst the cushions and ate. Slowly, deliberately, each sensation peaking higher and higher on her taste buds. She watched the water lap softly at the shore.

It must be a dream. She’d seen this place so many times since she’d started to come to the coast. Ever since she’d fallen in love with the ocean, she’d had dreams involving this cave. Dreams of dolphins and blue lights and endless need that had her waking dazed, restless and aroused.

Suddenly the cave filled with the brilliant blue glow she’d seen around the medallion earlier. It swirled past the entrance and poured like liquid silver through the air, flowing throughout the cavern. It touched her in passing and paused, frozen in midair like a bit of the Milky Way torn from the sky and tossed into the small cave.

The light brushed her feet, swirled around her ankles and twisted its way up her legs. Touching, caressing. A tingling sensation moved with the light as it floated over her skin, and Alexia froze as her body was momentarily enveloped before the light shot to the far back corner and bounced down to form into the solid body of a man.

His skin was smooth, bare of any hair. Blond hair fell to his broad shoulders, muscles well defined in his arms and torso. Brilliant green eyes smiled at her and her heart leapt.

“Joshua?”
