My firefighter, paramedic, genie short. Lol. The Erotica writers of Absolute Write are at it again–another anthology to support the forum. This time, we’re working on the colours red, blue, green, and black. I’m thinking about throwing another one in for black, but it’s a side-story from something else I’m working on and I’m not sure what I want to do with it yet.
So, Cody doesn’t know he’s purchased a genie in a dusty old bottle. He washes it and…
“Damn soap.” He rinsed the bottle off, dried the stopper, and braced it between his knees. This time, the stopper slid out easily. Too easily, because he nearly punched himself in the face. Standing straight again, he turned the stopper over and frowned at the foggy crystal.
“Well, you didn’t think I was going to let you open it while it was in the sink, do you? That would be all I’d need—a century of being stuck in my bottle, ended by the equivalent of a biblical flood. With soap. Yuck.”
Cody dropped the bottle and spun around. The bottle hit the floor, but instead of breaking, it bounced twice and settled sturdily on its base. He looked up from that amazing circumstance to see something even more amazing.
Standing in the middle of his kitchen was a man. A short, slender man wearing a bright orange shirt that stopped inches above the waist of his ragged skinny jeans and, incongruously, a pair of two hundred dollar sneakers. His scorching red hair was clipped on one side and long enough on the other to fall over his eyes. The guy grinned and waved cheerily at him. “Well, maybe not entirely a century. Sure felt like it, though. Boring in there.”
If you like new books, and good books, and books by new authors, here’s a great way to help support the forums at Absolute Write. Absolute Write is a thriving community, a training ground for authors as they learn the tools of their craft.
Underground is a mixed anthology, with MF, MM, ménage and BDSM, so you get a taste of everything. And, having beta’d a couple of them, it’s definitely worth the $3.99. And all proceeds go to support the forums, which must cost a bomb to keep going. I don’t know how they do it, but I have a lot of respect for them, because they do.
So take a stroll over to All Romance Ebooks, Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Treat yourself and treat Absolute Write too!

Welcome to the Underground!
The erotica authors of the Absolute Write are taking you underground—sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively. Karenna Colcroft’s haunting story gives sex in public an unexpected twist, and Erin Lark makes waiting out a storm into something special—and hot!— before Kate Lowell draws you deep into a cave for a steamy encounter. Lauren Gallagher sends you back to the 1930s for some gambling, bootlegging, and a little forbidden ménage, while Maryn Blackburn brings two enemies together in the wintery depths of World War II.
If you’re in the mood for something extra spicy, you’ll love how C.P. Foster opens up a very new world for a curious barmaid. And stick around because Cleo Peitsche and Jack L. Pyke keep the kink coming.
Come join us—but fair warning. Once you go underground, you may never want to come back…
Just how badly did you want to whack me upside the head with a thesaurus?
You’re right. That really did sound weird. I’m not sure my insurance will cover your therapy though, but good luck.
I’m calling shenanigans on you needing both hands and feet to count how many times I used that word…oh, wait. Okay. *Writes sticky note: use Word Usage tool before hitting send.*
Yes, I do know more colours than brown. But apparently I don’t know how to use them in my writing.
As least she didn’t comment on the chocolate sauce.
She really is a saint.
