I know that Chapter 6, posted today is a little lighter on the sex side than some previous chapters, but that's why the story is coded "Some Sex" instead of "Much Sex," even though BlackIrish's review this week gave it a stroke rating of 9. The sex in this chapter is a little quieter and even a little funny. When you end a chapter like this, it has to have something to lighten things up.
My editor, CJ, attached a note to the sex portion of chapter 6 in which he said: "This is about the time my wife would say "I have to pee! Stop it, you jerk." Fiction is so much better than reality at times :^)" Yeah. That's why we write and read fiction.
Well, don't worry. There are more hot scenes coming. I've just finished the first draft of chapter 9 in which Tony enjoys 3-way phone sex with a twist. Hey! You've got to have something to look forward to. Art models, cheerleaders, ladies racquetball competitors--there's a lot of material here to sort through yet. Thanks for encouraging me to keep this story going.
Speaking of which, I'm thinking 12 chapters in this story now. Maybe one or two more, but I'm not dragging it out. When it reaches a satisfying resolution (which will before everybody leaves for summer break), I'll end it and get ready to start the sequel. I'll give myself at least a couple of months in between to be sure I've got a solid story before I start posting again. I might even start putting the earlier-planned "Blackjack. Blackmail. Blacklist." and/or "My Lovely Assistant Rita."
Again, keep those cards and letters coming, folks! I answer every email.
