It wasn't a real kiss. Read a snippet from BUNNY OMEGA ON THE RUN #MPreg #PNR #romance #WeWriWa


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited my post last weekend! I'm continuing with more BUNNY OMEGA ON THE RUN, an MPreg MM Shifter Pop Star Romance. This story is available in digital and print at Amazon. 

Set-up: Last weekend, TK revealed to Kish that he's looking for a friend before their conversation is interrupted by the waiter.

I'm skipping ahead to the next chapter. And I think this is the first snippet I've shared in TK's POV. Anyway, TK is in a meeting with his manager Conn regarding the music video they just shot. Things aren't going too well.


“This is shit. The whole thing is a fuckin’ piece of shit.” Conn slammed his fist on the boardroom table. “No matter how hard the editors try, no matter what angles they use, they can’t make it seem like you actually enjoyed kissing Aerika.”

“Because I didn’t.” Not caring how mad Conn got, I leaned back in my chair. I’d told him all along I hadn’t wanted to work with her, and I couldn’t make it seem like a real kiss if she was the model they went with.

He flicked off the television. “Well sorry, but the models you gave us to choose from were already booked.”

“Not all of them.”





Bunny Omega on the Run 
Shifter Towers book one

As a pop star, I never expected to find true love. 

Not in a world where everything is temporary and often fake. But then he ran into me. Not once, but twice. My tiger instantly recognized him as my mate. Now, I just have to convince Kish that what we have is real.

The oldest of ten kids, I saw what my mother went through after my father left. After that, I started taking blockers so I would never go into heat, never have kids. Because love was for the weak. And I was doing just fine on my own.

Then I met TK. Literally smacked right into him. But no matter how much I wanted it to be true, I refused to believe that he could love a bunny shifter from the wrong part of town.

Bunny Omega on the Run is a super sweet with knotty heat MM mpreg shifter popstar romance. It is book 1 of the Shifter Towers series but can be read as a standalone.

TK explains why he invited Kish to lunch. #WeWriWa snippet from BUNNY OMEGA ON THE RUN #MPreg #MMromance #PNR


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited my post last weekend! I'm continuing with more BUNNY OMEGA ON THE RUN, an MPreg MM Shifter Pop Star Romance. This story is now available in digital and print at Amazon. And I'm hosting a release contest. This is the last weekend to enter. Find that at the bottom of this post.

Set-up: Last weekend, TK invited Kish to lunch, and Kish wasn't sure what to think about that.

I'm skipping several pages to when they are actually having lunch. Kish still can't figure out why TK invited him to lunch, has already told him he can't afford the food at the fancy restaurant he brought him to, and asks if TK sees him as some sort of charity work. (Creatively edited from published version to fit the ten sentence limit)


TK leaned back in his chair and crossed his arms. “If I saw you as charity, I would fill your cupboards at home, do a clothing drive to get you some new clothes. I wouldn’t invite you out to lunch.”

I glanced down at my tattered jeans and black hoodie; not at all fashionable, not even close to comparable to TK’s fashion sense. “I still don’t get it.”

TK laughed and reached across the table, touching my folded hands. “I told you before, I think you’re cute. And it’s refreshing to meet someone who doesn’t automatically swoon over me or want to talk business. I want us to be friends, if that’s okay with you. Maybe—”

Author note: And this is where they're interrupted by the waiter.

TK is hungry and asks Kish to lunch. Read a snippet from BUNNY OMEGA ON THE RUN #MPreg #romance #PNR #newrelease


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all of you who visited my post last weekend! I'm continuing with more BUNNY OMEGA ON THE RUN, an MPreg MM Shifter Pop Star Romance. This story is now available in digital and print at Amazon. And I'm hosting a release contest. Find that at the bottom of this post.

Set-up: Last weekend, Kish ran into TK for the second time in one week.

Once again, I'm skipping several sentences. TK has been talking to Kish, trying to get to know him. And Kish isn't sure what to make of any of it. TK just asked Kish when he was off. (Creatively edited from published version to fit the ten sentence limit)


The question surprised me; why would he want to know that? My stomach chose that moment to growl, really loud and slightly painful. “This was my last delivery.”

“Perfect,” TK said,clapping his hands twice, for some reason satisfied with my answer. “If you don’t have anything else planned, I’d love to take you to lunch.”

I froze for a moment then glanced around to make sure I wasn’t dreaming, that TK had actually asked me to lunch. “Why?” I asked, unable to think of anything else to say, not understanding why he wanted anything to do with me, unless he wanted me for lunch.

He chuckled. “Because I’m hungry and need to get lunch, since I wasn’t part of that meeting you just fed. And you’re obviously hungry, too, so I thought we could go somewhere together.”

Writing an adventure story ~ Guest post from Diane Burton, author of RESCUING MARA'S FATHER #newrelease #giveaway #scifi



Thanks so much for having me here today, Jessica!

Writing an adventure is fairly easy for me. All my science fiction stories are adventures. I like action-adventure movies. (I like romantic comedy, too). Star Wars IV: A New Hope hooked me with the music. John Williams soaring score conveyed the excitement of an adventure. A quest.

Early in my writing career, I learned about Christopher Vogler’s The Writer’s Journey, based on Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey. That’s sort of what I was doing subconsciously. Once I read the usual steps the hero takes on her quest, the story flowed.

My favorite step is the mentor. Think Obi-wan Kenobi. The older character who guides the hero. In my middle grade science fiction adventure Rescuing Mara’s Father, fifteen-year-old Mara has been working at spaceport with an old mechanic, Basco. When her father disappears (arrested by an evil queen’s guards), Basco helps her. He knows more than he lets on.

Basco reveals he and her father set up an escape route for her, in the event the queen ever found them. But, Basco rarely explains. He partially answers questions then changes the subject. He’s so skillful, Mara doesn’t realize that he’s holding back until later. Still, he gets her off-planet and on the way to the queen’s planet.

Just like Obi-wan, Basco doesn’t go the whole way. No, the hero must do that. When Basco leaves, Mara’s devastated. She can’t go on alone. She’s scared, she’s too young. Basco reminds her she has the skills. She can do it. Before he leaves, though, he offers her an out. He can get her far away from the queen, establish a new identity, hide. But that would mean leaving her father to the queen’s tortures and, probably, death. She can’t do that.

The mentor’s job is done. He’s helped the hero to a point where she is capable of going on alone.

I wrote Rescuing Mara’s Father for my grandchildren. They know I write novels. They also know they have to wait until they’re adults before they can read them. The idea of writing an adventure story for them popped into my head and wouldn’t leave. Since my family’s favorite adventure movies are the Star Wars’ franchise, it seemed logical to write science fiction. I can’t wait to hear their reaction to my story.


3 friends, a hidden starship, a quest

Her father is gone! Taken by the Queen of Compara’s agents. Mara has to rescue him before the Queen tortures and kills him.

Instead of the kind, loving father she’s always known, he’s become demanding, critical, with impossible expectations—not just as Father but also as the only teacher in their frontier outpost. Mara would rather scoop zircan poop than listen to another boring lecture about governments on Central Planets. Give her a starship engine to take apart or, better yet, fly, and she’s happy. Now, he’s gone.

Never mind, they’ve had a rocky road lately.

Never mind, Father promised she could go off planet to Tech Institute next month when she turns fifteen, where she’ll learn to fly starships.

Never mind, she ran away because she’s furious with him because he reneged on that promise. Father is her only parent. She has to save him.

Along with her best friend, eleven-year-old Jako, and his brother 15-year-old Lukus, Mara sets off to find her father. Her mentor, old spaceport mechanic, seems to know why the Queen captured Father. In fact, he seems to know her father well. But, does he tell her everything? Of course not. He dribbles out info like a mush-eating baby. Worse, he indicates he’ll be leaving them soon. And Lukus can’t wait to get off their planet. Mara’s afraid they will all leave, and she’ll be on her own. Despite her fears, Mara has to rescue her father.


“Sit, Mara.” Basco’s quiet order stops me. His tone has such force I do as he says. “Jako gave you good advice that you should heed. You need a plan.” 

“But we’re wasting time sitting here. What if the ship takes off? Call Dockmaster and—and tell him to delay the ship.” 

“The ship is gone.” 

“No.” Despair crashes down on me. I slump against the wall. “We’ll never find him. We don’t know where they’re taking him. They’re Coalition. They could take him anywhere.” 

“We are not going after your father,” Basco says. 

“What?” I cry. 

“He gave me explicit instructions to get you to safety if this situation ever arose.” 

“Why would he do that? How could he even know the Coalition would come after him?” 

Basco sighs. “His actions from long ago have caught up with him. Now, the forces of a powerful person have found him.” 

I’m still anxious to get going, to do something, to find Father. “What did he do? Who’s after him?” 

“That’s not important now.” 

“Yes, it is,” I persist. “How can I know what we’re up against if I don’t have all the facts?” That’s what Father always told me. Get all the facts. “Who is after him?” 

“Queen Bormella of Compara.” 

“What?” Jako and I whisper-shout in unison. 

“The Queen wants Father? Why?” 

Basco eyes me as if trying to make up his mind what to say. I can almost see him come to a conclusion. “Taking Grendarus is a means to an end. The person she really wants is you.” 

I gasp. “Me? Why me?” 

“She has her reasons. That is why I have to take you to a safe place.” 

“Forget going to some safe place. I’m going after Father.” 

Basco gives me a long look. “Do you realize that if you try to rescue Grendarus, the Queen could take you?” 

“So?” 

“Mara.” Lukus finally speaks. “Didn’t you pay attention to anything Teacher said about Compara? About what Bormella does to prisoners?” 

I hate that he reminds me. Of course, I remember the lectures on corrupt governments among the Central Planets, especially Compara. But that was just lectures. Words about places as far away and as removed from us as storybook tales. 

Now it’s real. Father is Queen Bormella’s enemy. Hang on, how would she even know him? We live out on the Frontier. How could he be her enemy? Stars and asteroids, she tortures and executes her enemies. If she wants me, I must be her enemy, too. Fear for Father, fear for myself overwhelm me. I slide down the wall and struggle to breathe. 

“Don’t you get it, Mara?” Jako says. “She’ll torture you . . . or worse.”
