Six of the Best-450

Hello, and welcome to Six of the Best once again. I’m trying to bring you new material every Sunday, and since I have so many books to work with, that’s easy and it’s hard. What do I share next? This week, I’m not trying to sell you anything. This story is free right here on my site, and it’s easily one of the most popular of my short stories. It’s titled, “Kevin: A Man of Discipline.” The story is about Kevin Watson, a loving sadist. I know that seems like an oxymoron, but in his case it definitely is not. You can find out how he came to be the way he is and what it means to him in his story. It’s told entirely from his point of view. Remember: it’s FREE!

Kevin - A Man of DisciplineHere are my six paragraphs.

I remember in high school, how I was the smart guy to whom people turned when they couldn’t understand the homework or needed an answer to a problem with a girl. I guess I was like Cyrano de Bergerac, writing love letters that would bear another man’s name. It was an awkward time for me. But eventually, I found a girl who wanted me for me. Teenagers that we were, there were constant issues to be dealt with. After a while, I had to step away from that relationship because her behavior was too emotional and erratic and began to be something I had to manage more often than I liked. I took control of the situation, but I was still pretty green, and my ham-handed arm chair psychology left us both unhappy and alone.

But in college, I tried a few new things with the girls I dated. After a while they weren’t so callow, and there was more order than chaos.

I had a lovely girl my sophomore year. Her name was Tasha. She was a beautiful woman, with soft, light coffee colored skin and bright sloe eyes. I thought I was in love with her, and maybe I was. At the time, I didn’t know what love for a woman really meant—my parents were fractious and sometimes distant with each other. My mother got a wild hair up her ass one year and adopted my baby sister, Loretta. I was thirteen at the time. It was a crazy, emotional decision, but my father went along, so there we were, suddenly a family of four. That took some getting used to, but I adapted.

After I got into Princeton, Tasha and I spent more than a few hours babysitting Lori as she moved beyond babyhood, and I have to say, if I’ve ever loved anyone, truly loved a person for everything she is and the potential she has, I loved my baby sister.

That kind of love came more naturally to me than the kind of love Tasha was trying to find, and although I felt some emotion for her, I don’t know how I’d label it—or for that matter, whether a label is even necessary.

Tasha was a very sensual person. She loved sex—everything about it. And, with a young man’s raging hormones, I was ready, willing and able to indulge her. There were things I’d seen during a trip to Amsterdam with my father, magazines and adult comic books, that left a lasting impression on me. I was drawn to the Sadomasochistic stuff the most—not blood and destruction, but the expressions on the faces of the participants pulled me in. I wanted to try some of those things with Tasha, and she was more than willing to accommodate me.

You can read the entirety of Kevin’s story on my site, for free. It does contain BDSM, and is an adult story. I would say it’s not safe for work, so please keep those things in mind as you read it.

After reading the story, you’ll want to bop around to the other Six of the Best authors’ sites. Just follow the links below.

Hello, everyone. We’re beginning a new month, a new quarter of the year, and the last quarter of 2015. I can’t believe this year is almost over. It seems like it just began!

I’m busy behind the scenes writing, editing, and generally making mischief. I hope to have three more books published this year, and one more re-release as well. No dates are forthcoming yet, as the books sit with publishers waiting in the publication queue. However, you will know when I know.

And speaking of new books and publishing, I’m going to be releasing advance reader copies (ARCs) of new books as they become available to me. These copies are not like beta copies (the stuff before editing); they are edited and nearly ready to go on sale. But the ARCs will only be available to Street Team Members.

PG's Perfect PosseWhat’s a Street Team, and why should I join?

A Street Team is a way for an author and readers to connect in a more personal manner. Street Team Members get bonus materials (like ARCs) in exchange for release-day reviews, feedback, good will; and they also get swag, giveaways, and opportunities to really make a difference in the books they read by that author by sharing their creativity, or participating in simple opinion surveys. I will also share milestones, a little personal information, and links to things you might be interested in. I will not try to sell you stuff, like other people’s books. I promote other people’s books here on my site and sometimes on Twitter, but I won’t be doing it in our Street Team. I don’t want to burden you with any implied obligation to buy something.

What do I have to do if I join the Street Team?

You are requested to participate in several ways:

  • Reviewing books you are gifted;
  • Distributing materials to interested parties when appropriate;
  • Providing word of mouth endorsements via social media;
  • Subscribing to my blog/newsletter feed (upper right on this page);
  • Giving your input and opinions in our closed FB group or via email.

There is no cost to join. I like to think of it as a mutually beneficial arrangement. I give you stuff, you support my work. Easy as can be. There is no pressure to perform. If you have a family emergency or a health issue, I won’t kick you in the butt. There are priorities in life, and while I hope you’ll honor our mutual commitment, I will understand it if you need a break.

How do I sign up?

Fill out this form and join the closed FB group. Maranda or I will send you the group invitation once we have your information. You might get a friend request from one or both of us. Only members are allowed into the group and only members can see the posts. Please note: the form requires your mailing name and street address. I want to send you swag, and some of that is physical material.

I hope you’ll take the plunge and join PG’s Perfect Posse Street Team. I look forward to interacting with you.


Stranded with the Cyborg bannerCara Bristol — fabulous author and much admired colleague — has a new book out: Stranded with the Cyborg. It hit the market about a week ago and has already garnered a string of five-star reviews. I bought my copy the first day it was out, within hours of its release in fact, and I have to tell you, it’s awesome. If you like sexy science fiction romance, or you’d like to try it out and open your horizons, Cara Bristol’s Stranded with the Cyborg is the book to get. And she’s giving something ($25) away just for reading this post and playing Rafflecopter! Scroll to the bottom (stopping along the way to read all about the book) and enter the giveaway.

Here’s a little bit about the book.

The sales summary:

Penelope Aaron, the former Terran president’s daughter, regrets how she got Agent Brock Mann booted from the security force. But now that she’s an interplanetary ambassador about to embark on her first diplomatic mission, she still doesn’t want him tagging along. Especially since he seems to be stronger, faster, more muscled, and sexier than she remembers. And pretending to be her husband? This mission couldn’t get more impossible!

Ten years ago Penelope Isabella Aaron had been a pain in Brock Mann’s you-know-what. Much has changed in a decade: “PIA” as he code-named her, has grown up and is about to attend her first Alliance of Planets summit conference, and Brock has been transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal attack. Now a secret agent with Cyber Operations, a covert paramilitary organization, Brock gets called in, not when the going gets tough, but when the going gets impossible. So when he’s unexpectedly assigned to escort Penelope to the summit meeting, he balks at babysitting a prissy ambassador. But after a terrorist bombing, a crash landing on a hostile planet, and a growing attraction to his protectee, Operation: PIA may become his most impossible assignment yet.

A tantalizing excerpt:

Stranded with the Cyborg cover“Ten years have passed. Penelope is different now,” Carter said.

Brock doubted that. “Does she know about me?”

“That you’re a cyborg? Of course not. She hasn’t been told anything about the program or even that you’re the one who’s been assigned to her.”

“Yeah, spring it on her. That will go over well.” He could envision the tantrum, and, after she calmed down, the scheme she would devise to circumvent the decision. The last time he’d seen her, she’d been emerging from his quarters half-dressed, a triumphant smile tilting her lips. Shortly thereafter, two fellow agents had come to arrest him.

President Aaron had exonerated him, the transcripts from the investigation had been sealed, and he’d been offered reassignment. Instead, he’d taken a position with an anti-terrorist investigative organization. His unit got attacked; his fellow operatives had died. Carter, who’d been working with Cy-Ops all along, had swooped in and saved his ass.

“I’m not saying I’ll do it, but, hypothetically, if I had a computer meltdown and agreed, what would be my cover story? I couldn’t tag along as her bodyguard because that would unsettle the Xenians.”

Carter poured another shot of Cerinian brandy and downed it. He met Brock’s gaze dead-on. “You’d accompany Ambassador Aaron as her husband.”

“Oh, hell no!”
