I have so much work I’m ready to cry. On the plus side, finishing the second edits on my upcoming novella which I’ll start snippeting from soonish.

I’m picking up where I left off two weeks ago, Brendan and Josh fleeing the haunted hotel after their first kiss.

Josh nodded, flicking the tip of his tongue against his lips, wetting them. They seemed impossibly dry, all of him so tense he was sure all his juices had been wrung out. “I know. I didn’t feel comfortable making the first move. I didn’t want to do anything to lose your friendship because if that’s all I had of you, it was still more than I ever expected.”

Brendan rubbed his knuckles against his eye. “You are definitely my friend. I think I’m finally ready for more. When I’m with you, I feel happy. Even thinking of Connor now doesn’t make me entirely despair because I know I can talk to you and you’ll find a way to make me smile.”

Josh bit the inside of his lip. He didn’t want to cry but he could do nothing to stop his eyes from misting up. “I’m so glad I could help. That make me smile.”

So now I have to prepare to have class face to face AND hybrid (partially online partially face to face) AND fully online. Because prepping four classes in three different ways following so rubric that isn’t MINE will be so easy. It’s killing my writing time and worse the day I got this news I got first time edits on my upcoming novella. head desk, it’s why I owe everyone comment.

Picking up with These Haunted Hills right where I left off, Josh and Brendan shared their first kiss only to have a ghost interrupt them violently.

Neither of them said a word until Josh started the truck and bounced them out of there. Neither of them even belted in until he pulled off the road once the hotel wasn’t in sight.

“Holy fuck, what was that?” Brendan asked.

“I think you’re right. I think we got someone’s attention. Diana probably wouldn’t appreciate happy people in her hotel She lived off human misery and we were anything but miserable,” Josh replied, still panting slightly.

“Yeah. Um…about that.”

Josh twisted on the seat, not wanting to hear what came next. Brendan’s shoulders hunched, his face sheepish. “Please don’t tell me you’re sorry.”

“Hell no! I’ve wanted to do that for a while now but I wasn’t sure I could.” Brendan sighed, relaxing back against the seat. “That’s all one me. I was pretty aware you were interested in me probably since the beginning but you also know what’s jumbled up in my head.”

Oh crap I forgot to post this yesterday.

Picking up where I left off with These Haunted Hills (and way to spot the typo today a week later). Brendan and Josh’s intimate moment is ruined by a ghost.

Brendan made an unhappy little noise, like a strangled protest. The creepy unsettling feeling intensified. Josh felt sure something moved toward them. He saw nothing, heard nothing but his hair stood up.
.
“Josh!”

“Okay, okay.” Josh started walking toward the truck but he kept the camera on the hotel. He should run. His nerves screamed it. He needed to get out of here but he wasn’t giving some long dead bitch the satisfaction. If it was Diana. She easily could have lured a demon to the site. Or a shadow man or something that means they should get the fuck away now that they’d gotten its attention.

He turned off the camera and broke into a jog. Brendan took off even faster, his long legs eating up the ground.

Oops I was attending a virtual Poe lecture hosted by NYC’s Boroughs of the Dead tours and totally forgot to do this.

I have to drive to Pittsburgh tomorrow as my birthday is next week and my family wants me home. Sigh.

I’m picking up where I left off with These Haunted Hills, Josh and Brendan are having their first kiss when the sounds of glass breaking in the haunted hotel startles them.

Both of them whipped around to face the hotel. There was no glass of course. Both of them knew it. Josh couldn’t breathe, a weight as heavy as the hills settling on him.

“God, I’m suddenly terrified,” Brendan whispered, shaking next to him.

“Me too.”

Brendan edged away even as Josh turned on the camera again. His erected fell and his nerves sang too loudly for him to care. He saw nothing but recorded anyhow.

“Are you there?” he asked the wind.

Brendan pulled on his shirt. “Are you insane? Let’s get out of here. We woke up something that doesn’t want us here.”

“I know.”

It’s amazing how it gets worse each week this year. Done what I’ve can donation and otherwise but of course feels like not nearly enough.

So still in no mood to talk about much. I’ll just drop my link and run. Picking up with These Haunted Hills right where I’ve left off: their first kiss outside of the haunted murder hotel

Brendan leaned in, his hand slipping along Joshua’s neck. His lips brushed Joshua’s lips lightly at first. Hunger swamped them, hands and lips demanding more and more as they explored. Brendan broke away first, his eyes wild as a startled stag. Josh expected the words ‘what the hell am I doing?’ expected his heart to tear into pieces.

Instead Brendan pulled him closer, kissing him again, tongues dancing with each other. Josh ran his hands across Brendan’s lean strong back, no longer fighting the fire inside himself. Acutely aware he wasn’t the only one hard as steel, he drank deeply of the kiss like a man long denied water.

A loud sound of glass shattering shocked them apart as sure as if Thor had hurled a bolt their way.
