Story Orgy Breaks in And Takes Over


Havan) *jimmies lock and opens door to the talented Sara York's blog* All right…we're here! *looks behind me at my reluctant Story Orgy family: The Goddess Em Woods…her muse JR Boyd…my muse Lee Brazil…the brilliant Hank Edwards (I'm his #1 Hankie!!!)…and my beautiful yin Jade Baiser*

Lee) *peers around* Are you sure about this? 

JR) *snuggles into my muse's side, pointing and whispering* Ohh! Look, Em. The carpet is gorgeous! 

Em) *looks over shoulder* Yep, looks great. Can we hurry up? I don't want to get busted. That would ruin my "white as snow" innocence. *blinks* 

Havan) Oh come on, I wouldn't lie to you, Sara said we could play on her blog today! *grabs Lee's hand and pulls him behind me while motioning for the others to follow* Wow! Her blog is so big and pretty like! And look—plenty of chairs and loveseats to go around! So…what do you guys want to do now?  *starts the coffee pot and pulls out the bag of cookies I snagged from Lee's kitchen* What?!? Didn't I ask for these…ooops. *giggles*

Lee) Oh, by all means, my cookies are your cookies!

Havan) *hugs my muse and sighs happily* 

JR) *licks Lee's cookie* So, does that mean this one's mine?

Lee) *blushes*  ummm... 

Em) All yours, my muse. *smh*

Havan) *hip bumps Lee and winks at JR* Alrighty then…you know, I was asked the other day to explain the Story Orgy to a friend…they had seen our 5 part interview on: Our GroupWritingSexFavorite Things…and Christmas. Plus they had seen our Facebook page…but they were still wondering exactly what we were and how we got to be where we are.

Lee) I remember reading Em's post on FB- a beautiful little story about a painting and a first snowfall.  I knew I wanted to try it right away.  So I asked her if she wanted company, and she said sure, that made prompt writing even more fun! 

Jade) I remember it perfectly. I received a message from Em, who I didn't know that much at that time, asking me if wanted to help the group by finding pics to illustrate their stories. I was flattered and agreed right away!

JR) I don't think I ever felt as honored as I did the day I joined Story Orgy. I'll never forget it. Lee gave me a chance by presenting the idea to Story Orgy before I even knew about it. That day changed my life. I gained another loving family.  

Havan) I for one was just trying to be like my muse…I'm a follower you know *giggles*…I saw Lee having fun working it with Em and I just had to try it myself—this was technically before we became the Story Orgy. But after my first posting with Em and Lee I was hooked. 

Hank) Em met me on Facebook and invited me to join the group, and I fit right in. My dash of sass (or two) and my back catalog of sizzling fiction, plus I really loved to have the chance to post on a weekly basis. I've written two or three novellas out of it, all posted in chapters on my blog, everything from ghost stories, to mobster muscle in love, to sea monsters. While it's a challenge because there's no chance to go back and edit to make the beginning of the story, started weeks, or even months, ago, match the ending, it's pretty exciting!

Havan) *leans over, sticks finger to Hank's arm and pulls back quickly…shaking finger* dude you really do sizzle! *bounces on loveseat*

JR) *holds my muse's hand* Em, you are indeed an angel. Yep. An angel indeed. 

Em) Oh wow. Really, it was easy to agree to writing with you guys. You are all so talented...it was a no-brainer for me. And I couldn't be happier that we've made our writing group succeed! 

Havan) So there—in a nutshell the Story Orgy is a group of six individuals who alone are talented and terrific...but put us all together and we can move mountains and cause a little trouble ... um ... okay maybe a lot of trouble - but only the good kind! *giggles* We write every Monday on our blogs using all different types of prompts - whether they are picture, dialogue, three words or just sentence prompts. The SO is more than just a group of talented authors to coattail with…it is a family with whom to grow and thrive with. *blushes* Sorry, I tend to get a tad bit mushy every now and then. hehe

You know—strolling down memory lane with you all is a fave pastime of mine! So…let's talk about Word Play! This is the SO's first ever publication with Breathless Press. We were gifted with a terrific editor and the whole process was just smooth as honey being drizzled over the yummiest body parts imaginable! *winks*


JR Boyd
Off the Beaten Path
Best friends, Mitch Sterling and Colby Merritt have spent their whole lives together in a small town in the Hill Country of Texas. At twenty-four, the two entrepreneurs run a small landscaping company. Mitch works out in the field, leading the landscaping crews and getting his hands dirty. Colby uses his college education to handle the business aspect of the company from their office.

Outside work, the two can always be found together. A Saturday morning drive leads them to a dirt road that neither has ever traveled. With the help of a few beers, the hot Texas sun, and a secluded country pond, Mitch and Colby find themselves exploring new territory Off the Beaten Path.


Lee Brazil
The Park at Sunrise
First they were three, now there are two.  
Can Jason and Morgan make a relationship work without Paul?

For years the three of them had been inseparable, first as friends, then lovers. It's been ten years since they parted for what was supposed to be a year apart to pursue their dreams.   This isn't the reunion they planned then.  It's nine years too late for one thing, and they are one man short for another.

In the years since Paul's death, Morgan hasn't exactly been waiting for Jason to reach out to him.    He's been too busy trying to forget, to move on.  Until Jason sends the right message. Is the painting just an excuse to see his ex again? 


Hank Edwards
Wicked Reflection
Kirk Stanford’s realtor never mentioned certain features of his new home during the walk through, such as mysterious rooms and brutal secrets. All Kirk knows is he has a lot of unpacking to do and a handsome, bad boy neighbor seems to have taken an interest in him.

But then the warnings begin to appear, written in steam on the bathroom mirror. At first, Kirk dismisses the messages, but when a prowler attempts to break into his house, and a handsome private detective shows up asking questions, Kirk realizes how much danger he is in. He’s invested too much money in his new house to just walk away, so his only choice now is to figure out for himself who the prowler is and what he still wants out of his house.


Havan Fellows
Harlan's Ryde
Ryder Halloway made a life changing decision about his relationship with Harlan when he was young and stupid.  Thanks to one rash moment, he lost it all.  He lost the only man he would ever love, his drive to even try to finish college and his zest for life.

Seven years later finds him in front of Harlan's house preparing to take back what he lost with a vengeance.    He's prepared to use all the tricks in his arsenal to plow through every wall, protest and excuse Harlan might come up with.

Of course, he never expected Harlan to put him in the hospital …

Harlan Mychels had his heart broken in college by the popular Ryder.  He learned his lesson about love and since then hasn't allowed anyone even remotely close to his heart.  Then one morning he turns and sees the one person able to tear his walls down and destroy what is left of it.

He uses every defensive tactic in his possession to keep Ryder at arm's length, but Ryder is persistent.  Harlan's not sure if he can stay safe from heartache … and he starts wondering what the real heartache is – letting Ryder in again … or letting him go for good.


Em Woods
Harper's Discovery
When Harper Evans discovers his boyfriend in yet another bar with yet another Joe, he makes the final break and kicks him out. More relieved than heart-broke, Harper turns his attention to the letter burning a hole in his pocket that could mean a fresh start across the country.

Pitt Mullen has been looking for just such an opportunity and pounces on it - and Harper - when it shows up. But not everything is as it appears. When Pitt gets a late night call and rushes to another, will Harper understand or cut his ties before he listens to the truth?
