It's not pony sex
Tuesday, July 7th, 2009


Progress on HALTERED

That big-ass contest widget is finally gone from my blog! Tomorrow, I’ll name the winners of the contest—and start another contest to celebrate the release of Stone’s Embrace!

So, today I’m just playing catch-up.

I updated my website yesterday. Swam twice. Started a new online class (I’m leading it with my sister), but didn’t write a single, solitary word.

The hero of my latest work is an asshole, and he’s just one in a string of assholes I’ve been writing. Says something about my personal life, I think. Maybe it’s time for some changes there so I can write a nicer guy.

And I hate that title—HALTERED. I already published Saddled, and just turned in BRIDLED. I wanted another one-word title, but HALTERED isn’t doing anything for me. It reminds me of pony sex and that’s not where this story’s going. :lol:

Do you have any great title suggestions for me?

See you tomorrow with the names of the winners and the start of the new contest!

    LOL, Delilah! Not pony sex–hee! That’s probably not a great title… Taking the Reins? Tied Down?

    Hmm, pony sex sounds pretty interesting. I suck at these things and I can only come up with “Reined.”

    I have came up with a few.

    Dally or Dallied , this one has to do with roping.

    And you also have

    Double Rigged or Single Rigged, whichever you fancy.

    Corralled would be another also.

    Hey Delilah, I thought of Roped and Reined as well, or else after getting Saddled I guess one could get Ridden…???? Hmmm :)

    Pony Sex? LOL

    I love the suggestions so far. I really can’t think of anything that hasn’t already been mentioned. Too bad I never really got into riding or I might have been able to come up with something.

    Some of y’all mentioned “Reined”–which is the title I have chosen for the next story! LOL (Her name is Reina Cruz)

    Some great suggestions here. I’m gonna have to “ponder on ’em”. Can you tell I’ve been thinking in Texan all day long?

    I hope these days soon get better for you! But I can’t complain about your heroes, love them!

    Most picked the great western titles. All I could think of left was:
    RIDER
    Herded
    Handled
    Wrangled
    Buckarooed (LOL)

    I don’t like haltered either. Bridled doesnt do it for me either sorry it sounds like pony sex to me too. I do like wrangled, riden maybe. Not too many western term doesn’t sounds horsey
