I’m writing a hostage story this week. Finishing it up, really. Right now I’m taking a break from watching a run of cop/forensic TV shows trying to get the lingo just right. LOL. I know from being a nurse each career has its own special jargon and I want to add a touch of it to the story to make it realistic. Just a bit. I’m writing a hostage story for an anthology with Josh Lanyon and Sarah Black that is coming out soon in print with MLR Press. I think Josh and Sarah have their stories in ebook with another publisher, but I haven’t thought ahead enough to put mine out there as a single short yet. I’ll let you know when I do.
I like writing strong men forced into a vulnerable spot whether they are the kidnap victim or the one left behind to find their lover, both are made to be vulnerable. It’s a feast for a writer like me who likes emotion and romance and a little bit of angst. It’s been a fun story and if appeals enough to readers, I might do a regular shot with this guys a couple times a year. We’ll see how it goes. I ‘ve got a great B&W of the two guys I’m going to have added to the book so readers can see what I used for inspiration!
