And That’s a Wrap!

That sound you hear is me. Sighing. I just completed my very first (first draft) book. Yep…Santa Baby is DONE. It came out to 30 chapters and 40,863 words. Next I’ll do a red line edit on it. Than to find a real editor and someone to make a cover.

But first…first I’m going to put it down for a week or two to clear my mind and then read it from start to finish.

Don’t think this is The End of my writing attempts. I have a hot MC WIP that’s been screaming at me. I think I can hear the rumbles of those sexy Harleys!

Excerpt: Santa Baby Chapter 30

“Christian Alexander Kringle!” Chris looked down as his mom, wearing a bright pink snowsuit, stepped around his dad and inserted herself between the two men. Her use of his full name was never a good thing. “You do NOT greet someone like that! Didn’t I teach better?” She squeezed her way between the two tall men, planting her hands on her hips. She paused, waiting for him to answer her. When none was forthcoming, she huffed out a sigh, the breath seeping through her face scarf to fog in the cold air. She pushed past Chris with a muttered “It’s cold out here!”

“Sorry mom.” Chris looked a bit sheepish as he moved to let his dad follow his mom into the cabin. A sound came from the stairway behind him where Jamie stood on the bottom step. She wore one of t-shirts. It hit her mid-thigh, showing off her shapely legs, the neckline drooping off one shoulder. Her hair was tangled and her lips swollen. She had the glow of a woman well loved.

“Oh, my!” Claire stood in the middle of the room, unzipping her parka, her eyes bouncing from Jamie to Chris. “Did we interrupt something?” She tried to sound contrite but the huge grin on her face spoiled it.

“Well hell,” Kristopher muttered opening his parka as well and looking at his petite mate. “Of course we’ve interrupted something. They’ve been locked in here for a day and half! What did you think they were doing sweetie?” His smile took away any heat in his words.

A low groan escaped Jamie as she stirred, her body sore in multiple spots from their night of passion. After they had bonded last night, Chris had carried her up to his room on the second floor. The fire in the large fireplace had cast a warming glow over room. A king size bed sat against one wall, facing a huge picture window and massive deck. Those were the only details Jamie registered before Chris placed her on the bed, covering her body with his. The night became one of passionate lovemaking, with one orgasm rolling into another for her.

The room around the bed was chilly, the fire now just glowing embers. Jamie shivered and the strong arms wrapped around her tightened. Eyes still closed, she smiled at the possessiveness of those arms. She snuggled deeper into the body next to her wiggling her ass until it nestled in her mate’s groin. She sighed and smiled again. He was hard, his cock poking her, ready to resume where they had stopped last night. A growl sounded in her ear.

“Keep that up baby, and we won’t make it out of bed today.” His voice was low and raspy as his lips grazed her neck. Jamie melted as he opened his mouth over the pulse in her throat. Oh God, she thought as he sucked gently, I could get used to waking up like this every morning. Chris chuckled against her skin. “Oh, we will sweetheart,” his words made her shiver with need. “You’re mine now. I plan to do this,” his hands cupped her ass as he thrust his hard cock between her ass cheeks, “every morning for the rest of lives.”

“Keep that up baby, and we won’t make out of bed today.”

Story/Writing bible

In the process of working on Santa Baby, I found myself scribbling notes here and there about “stuff”. You know the kind, notes on characters, places, things. Or I’d find myself hunting through previous chapters for a tidbit I wanted to check or reference.

So I decide to start a Story/Writing bible. I’m using Excel to do that. It’ll take some time to get all the info I want into it, but I will. In it I can track characters, WIP, story ideas, and word counts for each WIP. Maybe being a tad more organized will help me with my writing.

 

So what do you use to track WIP info?

Excerpt – Santa Baby Chapter 28 (NSFW)

“Move…oh god…just fucking move!” she moaned. A rumble escaped Chris. Jamie’s demand and her use of the word fuck stripping him of control. Bending over, he wrapped his arms around her waist and brought her upright, straddling him again. Her arms looped around her neck. The movement forced him even deeper inside of her until his throbbing cock bottomed out in her wet pussy. With a groan, he lifted her until only the tip of him was still in her. Jamie clutched his shoulders, head down as he impaled her again. Her head jerked back, a low moan escaping as her as he rocked her on his cock.

 

“Christ baby,” his words were rough. “You are so fucking tight!” He lifted her body before jerking her back down, setting up a hard and fast pace, his cock filling her over and over again. “I’ll never get enough of you, never let you go.” His mouth took hers in a deep, wet kiss. His tongue mimicking the rhythm of his cock for a few strokes.
