Funerary Rites 34: Teeth, Hands, Hips


Senga balanced on her toes, kissing Erramun.  There was a split second where she thought he wouldn’t respond before he kissed back, pressing his throat against her hands.  As she drew on the kiss, letting her thumbs brush against the tattoos she’d inked into his skin, he put first one hand and then the other on her waist to brace her.

Advance Notice: 10K Livewriting Day

Hello all!

On December 26th, from approx. 8 or 9 a.m. ’till the same in the p.m. (Eastern time)*, I am going to open up a google doc (or something similar) and start writing.

I’m going to be aiming for 10,000 words.

I will be working primarily on one of my two current novel projects, probably OtStrange/Found Down Below  (this is a cyberpunk fantasy romance adventure), but I will also spend time working on all of my current projects, including

  • Funerary Rites, The Hidden Mall, Haunted House, and Running in the Bear Empire, my four weekly-posted stories
  • things for Patreon
  • The Rural Fantasy Aunt Family novel The Family Power

(I don’t focus well 😉

I’ll also probably be taking prompts.


* does the whole world use those names and if so, how did North America get the NA-centric names like Pacific, Central, Eastern?
