Okay, it actually released back on January 11, but I didn’t have a chance to blog about it until now, because I’m disorganized like that…
Coming Together: Through the Storm is the latest of a long line of Coming Together anthologies. Each anthology benefits a specific charity organization, and some really excellent authors have contributed their talents over the years.
This is my first time contributing to one, and I’m thrilled to be part of it. Coming Together: Through the Storm is an anthology of weather-related erotica, and all sales benefit Mercy Corps, which provides relief efforts for hurricanes and typhoons.
I saw the call for submissions back in November, just in time to write a story during my short story self-challenge that month, and my brain took “weather-related erotica” to a completely different place. In my story, “Thunder,” the heroine brings home a guy for a one-night stand, and a thunderstorm happens outside while they fuck.
A thunderstorm caused by the guy, who has the psychic power to control weather.
I wrote this before I’d decided to focus on contemporary romance under the Karenna Colcroft name; if I’d thought of it, I would have asked that the story be published under my new Kara Costegan pen name. But since I didn’t think that one through, it’s a Karenna Colcroft story, and I’ll share an excerpt from it on Thursday.
