What Should I Write Next? - Vote!

Slightly less tired and zombie like than yesterday at least... Got some work done which is good.  I'm close to having another story to submit, a stand-alone in the loving wives category.

The next chapter of Consequences is out.  Yay!

I'm going to be writing a couple of stand-alone stories that were reader requests... and then I have to figure out what I'm going to focus on next. I'm hoping that you can help me by voting for your choice of what kind of series you'd like to see.  Just leave a comment (you can do it anonymously) and whatever gets the most amount of votes is what I'll do!

Option 1: Being the Maid: Historical / renaissance time period story.  There are so many stories about royal or noble women who are kidnapped by pirates / bandits and their maid either escapes or gets handed over to "the men," but the focus remains around the Princess or Lady and her experience with the pirate captain / bandit leader. So I started wondering - what about the maid's story? This storyline would concentrate on the maid's experience in the hands of the 3 very different bandits, with only brief glimpses into the Princesses' plight with the sadistic bandit leader.  I might even throw in a little romance between the maid and one of the bandits.

Option 2: 24 Hours: Luke is a successful (and sexy) businessman helping the FBI out with a gambling / thievery / murder sting in a fancy Vegas hotel when he sees his lost-love with one of the targets.  He manages to "win" her for 24 hours in a poker match with her new man and takes her into his custody to find out if she's one of the bad guys and, if not, then to protect her from what's about to go down. But can either of them protect their hearts? (yay cheesy romance! hahahaha)

Option 3: Dracula - An Erotic Re-telling:  I've always loved Bram Stoker's Dracula and I started thinking how much fun it would be to re-write it with an erotic bent... basically using sex as well as blood as what turns a person from a human into a vampire and what cures the turning.  Except that I'd also give everyone a happy ending because that's what I'm a sucker for.

So, those are the three story lines that I'm thinking about working on next. Which one do you prefer? Leave a comment and let me know! I'll close the "voting" this Saturday and go with whichever one has garnered the most interest.


  1. Casting my vote for Option 1. I like the idea of taking the focus off the princess a lot. Option 3 would be fun to read too, especially around Halloween.

    First though, please put up the character profiles for Justin and Chris! Can't wait!!! :)

  2. 24 hours for me I'm a sucker for a good FBI undercover story through in sex and romance and I'm so there

    1. Sorry throw I'm sick and it's so throwing what little grammar skills I had out the window

  3. I'm sure you could do any of them justice, but it seems like you've put the least thought into the dracula--like it's somehting that is interesting but you haven't fleshed it out as much as the other two yet.

    So, my vote's for the maid first, and then for the 24 hour gambling one (I like poker stories).

  4. Option 3 sounds fun
