Her: But I think your first post should be really kick-ass. Powerful. You know? Stop the world in its axis and make it really pay attention.

Me: But if I do that, I will never do anything… my first post just has to BE. An outtake. Words on the floor. A promise of something to come. That’s all.

Him: There are no readers for the first post anyway. It doesn’t matter. It’s a throw-away.

Me: Words on the floor.

Him: Precisely.

Me: And tomorrow?

Him: Tease again. And again. But be ready to deliver.

Me: I will.

THE BOOK: Coming from Mischief, the erotica imprint of Harper Collins UK, in March 2015. In the meantime, sign up to follow this blog? Teasers (taste Tell Me) coming every Tuesday.

Yeah. Expect a post once a week at the most, kittens. Cause I’ve got books to write.
