Welcome to the 51st week of My Sexy Saturday.
This week is all about my sexy howl. And you all know what we mean…don’t you?
It’s all about the shifters this week. Those sexy beings that howl in the night. Or in the day when necessary. Shifters are downright sexy and if you have one, we want to see them.
Shifters come in all makes and sizes. They can be a wolf, a bear, an eagle or any variety of things but all meant to protect the one they love. You can have a pack or make your own pack with a variety of them. But will be a compassionate, caring being that once they find their significant other, will never let them go.
Everyone needs to feel loved and shifters aren’t any different. Some hate the fact they shift because they feel it distances them from their loved ones. Others use that different to protect all their loved one knows and wants. Others still, hide in the shadows and we can’t wait to see how they lure the one they desire to their side of the tracks.
Shifters are hot, shifters are cool and this week shifters are us. Shifters are special characters who may have survived a war, a lost love, a horrible love, a devastating event or illness but somehow still manage to want to find a love that completes them into having a full life. These are the characters that inspire you, motivate you to be better than you are or more than you are. The ones that make you cry, make you laugh and on whose journey you want to know what happens every step of the way.
These are the ones that fall in love and fall in love deeply, truly, forever. A shifter is a person or couple you want on your side for any situation. And it is these characters that you, writer or reader, care for and want to know every aspect of their lives as each page unfolds the story.
Share with us this week those characters who aren’t afraid to show that they love someone. Pepper their existence with a clandestine rendezvous or a weekly event, show us why we love, love, love them. Share those scenes with us this week. From the moment they meet their significant other, their first hot kiss, to the fulfillment of a dream, show us the wonders of finding, falling in love and loving your significant other.
Giving our readers even more to drool, sigh and love about our stories is our number one goal. Let’s show our readers that happily-ever-afters start with some special moments, be it soft and gentle or rough and fast. We love the good parts of the stories where the characters are making love or about to be loved. Forever. Frankly, we love all the parts that show us the characters we’ve come to care about. Share each and every moment with us this week!
If your story has one or more of these fabulous love scenes, please share them with us…even if it doesn’t fit this mold exactly…share those sexy moments that you do have between your characters. Every relationship is important!
Sexy can be anything, such as romantic moments like walks on the beach, a home cooked meal or even in another galaxy. It could be two lovers here on Earth dreaming about the day where they go on a magical vacation to another planet. Or staying right here at one of those wonderful places we can find in our own world.
Readers want to see those characters, the ones who can’t get enough of each other as well as ones who are fighting their way back to being part of the world once again. These are the types of characters they can’t forget, the one they want to take home and keep forever. Readers love the kisses, the looks or touch of each and every one of our characters.
Sexy has nothing to do with looks or status or even wealth. It doesn’t demand perfection and it isn’t pretentious but it does make us want to read those books.
We know that everyone has their own idea of sexy and we all love sexy!
