Welcome to my post on the Next Big Thing Blog Hop. I was tagged to participate by Mageela Troche and Ruth A. Casie. 

My Next Big Thing is the release of my third erotica tale in the GEEK LUST anthology, from Ravenous Romance and edited by F. Leonora Solomon.  It will be available on December 28, just in time to ring in the New Year!   Read all about it below.

What is the title of your story?
“Geeky Bowtie”

Where did the idea come from?
I was at a conference and there was one braveheart with a bowtie.  I was so turned on that my hero had to have one too.   That got me thinking about office romances, quickies and long hot summer nights!

What genre does your story fall under?

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Zoe Saldana and William Levy.  I think they would burn up the screen.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your story?
Sexy bowtie leads to desire, to a romp in a supply closet, and reconciliation of old lovers!

Who is your publisher?
Ravenous Romance

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your story?

Once I got the idea, it took me two days to write it.  I sent it to the editor who was very happy with it, but she wanted me to add more sex.   I took another week to add the extra pages and ensure that the writing was seamless.

What other tales would you compare this story to within your genre?
All the stories in the GEEK LUST anthology are worth reading.  Geeks rock!

Who or what inspired you to write this story?
It all started with that bowtie.
