A couple of announcements before we get to my Hook Up today: Em Woods has a new book available for pre-order, the first in a hot new series. It’s a menage story and takes place in the magic community of Detroit. Click on over to pre-order your copy of Convincing Symon now! While you’re there, grab a copy of her hot, hot, hot firefighter story Only Sam. Did I mention that it’s hot!

Did you submit your prompt ideas for Story Orgy’s Summer Road Trip? If not, get to it! We’re looking for the following types of prompts:

person (no proper names please)

destination (can be proper or not…hehe)

disaster (something to throw this road trip in a tizzy…be creative!)

Send your prompt ideas to Storyorgy<at>ymail<dot>com by March 1st. One entry per person, please. Each of the Story Orgy writers will pick their favorite prompts, and we’ll announce the winners on the following Monday, March 5th. Those who submitted the winning prompts will receive a copy of the anthology before it is released! As usual, the first 90 days of profits will go to a charity that will be announced closer to that time.

Speaking of Story Orgy anthologies and charities, did you know the Story Orgy donates the first 90 days of profits for our self-published anthology And the Prompt Is… Holiday Edition? Our target charity for this anthology is the My Stuff Bags group that provides children entering shelters with bags full of comforting items that they can call their own. It’s a great cause, and we’d love your help to donate a nice amount, so please click on over to the Story Orgy blog page and follow the links to download it today! You can enjoy some Christmas hotness all year long!

Our smexy picture this week was found, as usual, by the delectable Jade Baiser. She’s pulling double duty these days, not only finding us pictures, but posting her writing as well. Make sure you hop over to her blog after this and leave her a comment.

Okay, on with the story! This week I’m writing a Hook Up, and our prompt was a snippet of dialogue: “Someone’s playing the radio.” Ready to check back in with Dan and Jack? Here we go!

I Am Not Myself

by Hank Edwards

(c) 2012

Dan rolled over in bed. A dust bunny seemed to have moved into his mouth, and he licked his dry lips. The sound of singing came to him and he opened his eyes, squinting against the sunlight.

“Someone’s playing the radio?” His voice sounded used, worn out.

Footsteps in the hall, and he remembered all at once: Jack. After that: champagne.

“Good morning.” Jack had a towel around his waist, hair wet from the shower, pale skin glowing in the sunlight.

Dan adjusted the covers over his nudity, then rolled his eyes at himself and grimaced at the throb of pain the action produced. “Ow.”

“Headache?”

“Head-pound is more like it.”

Jack stood beside the bed, looking down at him. “I had a good time last night.”

Dan smiled up at him, tried to loosen the panicked feeling taking up too much room inside his chest and making it hard to breathe. “Me too.”

He had had a good time the night before, too, he remembered that much. But could it be like that every time? He was tough, on himself and those around him. Could a relationship with Jack work?

Before Dan could answer, the phone rang, loud and echoing around inside his skull. He grabbed it up and answered it to stop the horrible sound.

“Yeah?”

Chaos. He heard crashes and screaming over the line and his gut clenched.

“Hello? Who is this?”

“Dan! Help us!”

His mother’s terrified voice chilled him as the line went dead.

Holy crap! Dan and Jack finally got together, and now all Hell’s breaking loose! Come back next week to see what’s going on with those creepy dolls. For now, don’t forget to jump to the other Story Orgy blogs for more hot, smexy reads.
