New story published on

My story "Just Friends" was published today on a new Web site, Ravenous Romance. As usual, there's a story behind the story--although it's not the one you might think (you naughty blog reader, you). I wrote "Just Friends" one night when I thought I had writer's block. I sat down, started typing, and voila, before you know it I had more than 5,000 words. Oh, if only I could always be so productive!

If you want to read about Ravenous Romance and what its founders are trying to accomplish, you can, here.

And if you're interested in writing "sensual romance," well, they're looking for good stories and good writing. I've known one of the founders, Holly Schmidt, for several years now (she was my editor for Red Hot Tantra), and my dealings with her have always been positive and professional. And compassionate, in fact: she gave me an extension on a book deadline when I was a new mother suffering from extreme sleep deprivation and post-partum depression. So yeah, I'm a fan.

Enjoy the story, and let me know what you think. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.

Congrats on your new story! I found your blog when I did a search on my new story, so go figure LOL. Either way, it must be the year for writers named Gentry LOL.

5,000 words in a day? Oh, right now I am experiencing SUCH envy... total writer's block here..

Holly is a total doll and I am forever grateful you sent me her way!

Congrats on the story, which is one heck of a sexy read!

@Liane Gentry Skye: How funny. Where is your new story? Is it on Ravenous Romance as well?

@Dana Fredsti: Thanks, I'm looking forward to reading "Succubusted," too! Just bought and downloaded it today.

I can't really explain the 5,000 words in one sitting. It's never been repeated since. Sigh.
