I am super thrilled to share my blog site today with Author, Harmony Kent, so she can tell you about her new collection of erotic short stories and the prompts she used to write them!
Thanks so much for having me over at your place today, Jan.
Hi everyone. It’s great to be visiting with you all.
While I’m here, I’d like to talk about my latest book, Interludes 2. This is a book of short erotic romance fiction. As with the original Interludes (which you can find HERE), the book contains 10 short stories, with the first tale totalling 1,000 words, the second one totalling 2,000, and so on up to 10,000 words in the final story.
For each story, I used prompt cards from a great creative tool called Storymatic. Here’s what the set gave me to work with:
- teller of secrets, b) extremely hairy person (secondary) … c) nudist … (MC) conflict = hiding spot is discovered
A and B should relate to the main character and C to the secondary character. … But I cheated a little and switched things around, te he hee. So, the hairy teller of secrets became the secondary character. And the nudist became the main character. The final prompt gives us the conflict.
From the above set of prompts, I came up with NUDIST CAMP—contemporary romance in 5000 words.
An older woman. A younger man. A gossip discovers their secret tryst. What will happen when it all gets laid bare?
Excerpt from Nudist Camp:
Stupid should be her middle name.
So, of course, when her brother-in-law’s brother’s son came across her, she was sitting in the dirt and wiping muck and blood from her sole.
Even after all this time, she couldn’t quite get used to seeing Jordan in the buff. She remembered the scrawny little kid he used to be, and his manly appearance now unnerved her. For all the wrong reasons. He was her nephew-in-law—okay, so not directly, but still. He was a cousin to her nephew and niece. She had to get a grip on herself. Better yet, a grip on him. Stop. Behave yourself. Grip him and scream out loud with her legs wrapped around his waist, and him pumping into her. It ought to be illegal, having abs like those. And, oh, his pecks. She prayed he couldn’t see the sudden spurt of wetness that coated her … or smell her arousal for that matter.
It seemed to her that he spent far too long standing and staring before he strode up to her and crouched at her side. Between his thighs, his sacks and tackle hung low and swung deliciously. It took every ounce of her self control not to reach over and cup him in her hands. Oh, good God. How depraved?
Then Jordan went and spoilt the whole thing, ‘Aunt Chloe? Are you okay?’
Weak with want, and more than a little guilty, she waggled her foot in front of his face to display her wound, and then remembered her naked state. She lowered her limb in a hurry and closed her legs while blushing furiously. Could this day get any worse? No, surely it had to go up from here? Unless she started digging. Chloe was good at digging. The skill matched her size-ten feet that always seemed to put themselves in it—whatever ‘it’ might be. Had she, seriously, just opened her legs and shown this boy/man her crack? Oh, yeah, babe … you bet your cookie you did.
I had so much fun writing this one, and I hope you’ve enjoyed this little teaser. I’d love to hear what you think via the comments at the bottom of the page. Thanks for stopping by.
