Weekend Writing Warriors #123


Hi and welcome to this week's eight sentences. 
I'm starting a new story today and taking a snippet from my 'Fevered Kisses' anthology' this comes from the first story in the antho' 'Between the Pages', enjoy:                                           
                 My Snippet:
Somewhere in the back of my mind I thought about what Sean had said. It was the usual cliché about living your life because you only have one, you know the sort of thing. But cliché or not it worked, it was just enough to make me go through with it otherwise I probably wouldn’t have. Everything changed from that point on. I suddenly started thinking of myself as a sexual being, someone who needed sex as much as anyone else. Oh, I know I’m attractive, I’ve seen guys look at me everywhere I go. But that was them. Somehow I felt aloof, immune, wrapped in my own life of so called normality.

/Weekend Writing Warriors

Six sizzling stories in an anthology of lust from the pen of Gemma Parkes:

·        A notebook carelessly left behind reveals secret liaisons of a most intimate nature.
·        An insatiable woman bites off far more than she can chew when four is certainly not a crowd.
·        Sometimes life is just too darn hot but could cooling down heat things up further?
·        Fevered kisses lead to daring thrills for one hungry couple.
Also, what happens when erotic fantasies occupy too much of your time? Lay back and lose yourself in the sensual mind of one of England’s most imaginative storytellers. Adults only.




  1. I like it, Gemma. A candid slice of introspection. I think we've all been there, that moment of realization. It's really empowering, isn't it? And you've done a wonderful job of writing that. :-)

  2. She's come to a conclusion about herself. How marvelous. Now let's see where this epiphany goes. Hmm, Gemma. Very interesting.

  3. Oh my, methinks this cliche is about to unleash a wild and fun ride for Miss Formerly Aloof and Immune? Great snippet, leaves me wanting more. :)

  4. I like her thought process and I'm sure the decision is going to lead to some interesting times for her! Great snippet...

  5. I love how her realization grew out of a cliche. That's often the way it is; old saying keep getting repeated because of the truth lurking under the familiar words.

  6. Now let's see where she's going to go with this.

  7. Sometimes it's something small that makes you think--and change your life.
