Blogging Challenge ~ Epilogue Or Not? #evernighties @meganslayer #romance #epilogue

This week’s challenge involves epilogues. To write one or not.

In my humble opinion, the choice to write an epilogue has always come down to the story. I have no problems writing an epilogue. Some stories mandate needing an epilogue. There’s just a little bit more than needs to be told or the characters want a chapter to show how far they’ve come since the HEA.

Some stories just don’t require an epilogue. They’re good where they are and that’s where it should end for the reader (Per the characters decision). I have no problem not adding an epilogue.

Now, there are some stories where I don’t think the epilogue is needed. Like, poof, the characters now have a baby. Or poof, it’s fifteen years in the future and they’re different people. I tend to subscribe to the notion that the epilogue should be in the future, but a little ahead, not way far out.

But I’m open to debate and suggestion. What are your thoughts on the subject?

Soft Granite by Megan Slayer

Contemporary Paranormal Gay Romance

From Evernight Publishing

Celestial Mates, 5

What happens when the curse goes wrong, but the outcome is all right?

Ryan Rourke wasn’t looking for love when he sat at the foot of the statue, Michael Emerging. The inanimate object listens and he could swear there’s someone beneath the granite. One night he gives into his desire and kisses the statue. It won’t hurt anything, right? It’s just a granite statue—except there’s a soul in the cold rock.

Indio fell in love with Ryan the moment the shy college junior spoke to him the first time. The tenderness, warmth, and sense of humor were everything Indio wanted—if he weren’t trapped in granite. The attraction is stronger than he ever thought possible. Can Ryan’s kiss free him forever? Or will the power of Zeus and the majesty of the curse be too much to overcome? If Indio has his way, he will get his man.

Blogging Challenge ~ Books That Did a Great Job Explaining… @meganslayer #longandshortreviews #books

This week’s challenge prompt involves books that did a great job of explaining something. I’ve got a couple of examples, but they’re going to be way off my beaten path, so come along with me here.

The Monster at the End of This Book by Jon Stone – I will never forget this book. I still have my crayon-emblazoned copy because it’s a favorite book. Why would I mention it for this prompt? It explained without being blunt, how we build stuff up in our mind and what we think might be super scary can turn out to be nothing huge or at least nothing as scary as how we’ve thought it might be. Grover is one of the least scary monsters. It taught me to not judge a book by it’s cover and to give everyone a chance.

The other book, because I’m not feeling super verbose today, that explained love to me quite well has to be Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. Now, let’s not focus on the mother sneaking into the bedroom when the boy is an adult. I know, it’s strange. But this book, with that scene aside, explained to me the lengths we’ll go to for our kids–by birth or adoption or whatever. We’ll love our kids forever. When I read this book to the church congregation when I was in high school, I managed to get through the whole thing without crying. Back then, it was just a book. Now I’m an adult and a mom and I read it from a different perspective. It taught me that no matter how big or old my tot will get, I’m still his mom and I still will love him.

Did I make you cry yet? I can’t read that book without a few tears.

So, what books do you think explained something well? What was it? I’d love to know.

This week’s challenge involves clothes, primarily what I wear when I write. This seems, initially, like a silly prompt. On first thought, I want to say, clothes, duh. But then some–not me–may write naked. I don’t know. I’m not wild about being naked without a good reason. Writing isn’t one of those reasons.

Then DO I wear when I write? Whatever I’m wearing at the time. I’m that kind of writer. If the story is flowing, I sit and write. If it’s not, I don’t. The only thing I’m particular about are my bracelets. I have to wear ones that aren’t metal otherwise they get magnetized against the keyboard. I can be found in the wild writing while wearing a hoodie (A favorite) and jeans or a tee and jeans. Sometimes, if it’s hot, a tee and shorts.

I’m seriously not a contender for fashion plate of the year. I want too be comfortable.

What about you? What do you wear when you write? When you read?

Let me know 🙂

Blogging Challenge: What I’d Want on a Deserted Island @meganslayer #reading #islandlife #challenge

This week the prompt involves what I’d bring along on a deserted island. At first thought, being on a deserted island sounds great. No laundry. No one chewing me out for not turning fast enough or doing the proper promotion they feel should be done for an event. Silence, save for the waves and birds or whatever.

On second thought, it might be lonely, but it’s a deserted island. So I should bring stuff or something.

What would I bring? If we’re going completely fantastical, then I’d want, a pack of pens, notebooks, a phone for music and to capture photos, and Chris Evans. I said I’m going fantastical, didn’t I?

Now if we’re thinking useful, then DH (because I can’t reach everything), a boat, notebooks and pens. Between the two of us, we could figure out how to get food and make shelter. I mean, it’s my plan. I want company. If I have to be on an island, it’d be with him.

Or Chris Evans.

What about you? What would you want on said deserted island?

Speaking of people thrown together, check out my latest release, Running with the Wicked.

Running with the Wicked by @WendiZwaduk #paranormal #romance #pnr #hot #fae Will she accept him as her mate or decide there can be no future with him? If they’re both willing to run with the wicked, they just might find their hearts’ true desire. https://books2read.com/u/m2r6yd

Then he sees her. Ripley. She’s sweet, soulful and alone. Can the man hellbent on drifting accept his wandering days are over? Or will she break his heart?

Vonn stared out at the throng of dancers and sighed. The ice in his drink had melted. Christ, he was bored. A man only turned twenty-one once, and he refused to spend this token year in college. He also refused to spend it alone. Let his brother Jax do the college thing. He had other ideas. He’d party now and work later.

A blonde passed by and winked. She might be good for the evening, but she wasn’t his type.

“Vonn Jordan, just the asshole I wanted to see.” Larry Slater strode up to him. “I hear your family has a new venture.”

“We have lots of ventures,” Vonn said. Jesus. It wasn’t his job to keep up on what the family did and when. “Why?”

“I never would’ve thought your family would’ve gotten in on human trafficking.” Larry crooked his brow. “Is that right?”

What? Yes, the Jordans played fast and loose with the law. Yes, they tended to shoot and pay their way out of trouble. But human trafficking? He knew Dash better than that. Ever since Dash rescued his now-wife, Christy, from being pimped at the club, Dash made it his point to rescue others. He wouldn’t get into human trafficking.

“Well?”

“Where did you get this info?” He doubted it was from his brother.

“Channels,” Larry snapped.

“And what details are these channels giving you?” Vonn asked.

“Jesus. Stuff. Girls,” Larry said. “You’re buying and selling them to the highest bidder. Bondage shit, sexy toys, that sort of bullshit. Whatever the buyer wants to do with them.”

“I see.” What a nice answer. What a jackass. He had to talk to Dash. If his brother was involved in this — which he doubted — then they needed to stop. If they weren’t involved, then Dash needed to know the family name was being used. He’d also want to step in and stop the operation. He’d shut them the fuck down. No one deserved to be sold for anything.

“Well? I want in,” Larry said. “Girls can bring top dollar.”

Asshat. “I need to confer with the family. We’re rather picky about who we involve.”

“Tell your brother I would love to be involved. I’m in need of new, lucrative ventures.” Larry grinned, and his eyes narrowed. “Besides, you owe me.”

“I do?” He didn’t remember owing Larry anything.

“Yeah, you do. I got your ass into this club,” Larry said. “Without me, you’d be nothing on the social scene.”

He disagreed, but whatever. “I have to speak with my brother. I don’t run the family enterprises.” He never did and never wanted to. Dash would end up in a premature grave like their father if he wasn’t careful. He trusted his brother wasn’t doing something so shitty as human trafficking. It wasn’t possible.

“I expect to hear something.” Larry pointed at him. “I know where you live.”

So does everyone else. The Jordan family compound was practically a landmark in Shaker. “Uh-huh.”

“I’m watching.”

I’m sure. He nodded, then abandoned his drink on a nearby table. One of his two bodyguards followed him to the private overlook within the club. He could see everything and not be seen. He whipped out his phone. He needed to speak to Dash.

“Yes?” Dash asked when he answered the call. “You’ve been MIA. Care to tell me where you are?”

“In deep shit,” Vonn said. “I know where I am. I’m in Florida.”

“Funny. That’s a long way from Ohio State.”

“Whatever,” Vonn said. “I don’t need a lecture.”

“You’ll get one. I’ve got your credit card statement. If you run up one more bar tab, I’ll come to Florida and kick your ass.”

“I know. I went overboard. Jesus, Dash. This is important.” He leaned against the wall and lowered his voice. “Are you involved in human trafficking?”

“What the hell? No,” Dash said. “Christ.”

“You’re sure?”

“We concocted a bullshit story about selling girls to get Clint and Ronan’s girl free from a strip club. But I wouldn’t touch real trafficking. Christ. That’s barbaric,” Dash said.

“Good.”

“Why?”

“Your name is being used in connection with a trafficking ring. Larry Slater wants in,” Vonn said.

“If I were — which I’m not — the last person I’d involve would be Larry,” Dash said. “The pissant.”

“He wants details.”

“Tell him to fuck off.”

“Gladly,” Vonn said. “I’m going to the police. We can’t get mixed up in this.”

“Yeah. I’m not wild about the involvement of the law, but we’re clean,” Dash said. “Take your men and investigate. Try to catch wind of who is using our name, then I’ll destroy him.”

“Will do.” Right away.

“Oh, and tell Larry he’s in. Then let the cops have him.”

“Will do that, too.” He laughed. “Thanks. Bye, Dash.”

“Come home. Ma misses you, and you have an entire family to meet.”

“Later.” But he would. He missed the craziness of the Jordan family. His brothers were settling down, and he’d fucked around. Did the girls have families? Did they miss them? Were the girls being treated well? He’d bet they wanted to go home. “I’m worried these girls are being abused.”

“Most likely they are. I’ve got Jon and Kurtis on the way now. Get information and keep me in the loop. I’ve alerted the police and FBI. This isn’t going to go without anyone’s notice,” Dash said. “We’ll get ‘em.”

When she’s not writing the stories in her head, Megan Slayer can be found luxuriating in her hot tub with her two vampire Cabana boys, Luke and Jeremy. She has the tendency to run a tad too far with her muse, so she has to hide in the head of her alter ego, but the boys don’t seem to mind.

When she’s not obsessing over her whip collection, she can be found picking up her kidlet from school.

She enjoys writing in all genres, but writing about men in love suits her fancy best.
