let’s make fun of an author!

Whoops. I mean let’s have fun with an author, of course. Silly me. *hehehe*

That’s right, virtual folks, it’s time for another round of the perfectly legitimate author promo in the form of my super fun ‘choose your own m/m story’. Yay!

Who’s the lucky victim author I hear you ask?

Why it’s none other than lovely sucker newbie Wren Boudreau!

Remember how to play?

Step 1. Peeps choose different elements to be included in a story.

Step 2. After counting the votes, I let you know the results and…

Step 3. Hand it over to Wren, who has agreed to write the short story incorporating your choices especially for posting here on Valentine’s Day. Awwwww…

So, here we go!

1. the setting

a) a candle lit dinner

b) a Valentine’s Day wedding

c) a stuck elevator

d) a florist shop

2. some background to the main protags

a) it’s their first meeting

b) one of them sings when he gets nervous

c) it’s a May/December romance

d) one of them is a cross dresser

3. another character

a) an annoying maitre d’

b) a bawdy grandmother

c) an inebriated priest/minister/whatever

d) a delivery man

4. a conflict

a) one of them is a werewolf but the other doesn’t know

b) they had a one night stand but one of them can’t remember

c) feuding families

d) they’re arguing over taking holidays together

5. an object to be mentioned in the story somewhere

a) a pentagram

b) unwanted facial hair

c) an ice sculpture

d) a secret email

Now it’s your turn…

Leave a comment with your choices or email me at krisngoodbooksATgmail.com. You have until 12noon Wednesday 13 January (Perth, Western Australia time).

Let the picking on Wren commence!

  1. Here are mine! WOOT πŸ™‚

    1. the setting: a stuck elevator

    2. some background to the main protags: one of them is a cross dresser

    3. another character: an inebriated priest/minister/whatever

    4. a conflict: they had a one night stand but one of them can't remember

    5. an object to be mentioned in the story somewhere: unwanted facial hair

    After Chris' snow feature how can one do without a piece of ice/snow?

  3. K. Z. Snow says:

    I'm still wondering how I got stuck with the weirdest choices imaginable.

    1.) florist's shop
    2.) sings when he gets nervous
    3.) inebriated clergyman
    4.) secret werewolf
    5.) unwanted facial hair

    Wren's got it way too easy. I think you need to throw in some marsupial and a foot fetish. πŸ˜‰

  4. Ingrid says:

    KZ, I was looking for a pineapple

  5. Was I sober when I agreed to this?

    KZ, keep your big mouth shut.
    I'm grateful that after the recent spate of fetishes, etc., THESE are the choices. I think Kris is wanting something nice and sweet for Valentine's day.

  6. Tam says:

    Silly Wren:

    1. the setting

    c) a stuck elevator

    2. some background to the main protags

    a) it's their first meeting

    3. another character

    b) a bawdy grandmother

    4. a conflict

    b) they had a one night stand but one of them can't remember

    5. an object to be mentioned in the story somewhere

    c) an ice sculpture

  7. Tam says:

    I just realized that my 2 and 4 are completely non-compatible, but hey, that's Wren's problem.

  8. Jenre says:

    OK, here are mine:

    1. B
    2. C
    3. C
    4. B
    5. B

    Good luck, Wren. I'd escape now while you have the chance. πŸ™‚

  9. Chris says:

    Oh, Wren. *tsk tsk tsk*

    1. the setting
    b) a Valentine's Day wedding (preferably their own – combine that with #2a for maximum fun)

    2. some background to the main protags
    a) it's their first meeting

    3. another character
    c) an inebriated priest/minister/whatever (works well with #1b)

    4. a conflict
    b) they had a one night stand but one of them can't remember

    5. an object to be mentioned in the story somewhere
    c) an ice sculpture (like I could resist this one?!)

  10. Emilie says:

    1.) c
    2.) d
    3.) c
    4.) a
    5.) a

    Have fun, Wren!

  11. K. Z. Snow says:

    “KZ, I was looking for a pineapple.”

    Good idea, Ingrid!

  12. K. Z. Snow says:

    “I think Kris is wanting something nice and sweet for Valentine's day.”

    O_o You must be thinking of that Kris who lives in a nursing home in Buffalo.

  13. KZ: Oh, right. Buffalo. What, you don't think OUR Kris wants sweet and nice sometimes?

    I've noticed that I'm using more caps in my comments everywhere since that last post. Weird.

    Chris: If I end up having to write about an ice sculpture, will you take a picture of one for me? I'm sure there's one in a neighborhood near you!

  14. Kris says:

    Misunderstood…. again. *sigh*

    It's a Valentine's Day story for fuck's sake. I read romance. Do I need to draw a picture here or what. Geezus.

    KZ: “I'm still wondering how I got stuck with the weirdest choices imaginable.”

    I don't get why you would be. It's pretty clear to everyone else.

    Ingrid: A pineapple was included in the choices for LB's story. Although it was tempting, I wanted to be a little different this time round. πŸ™‚

  15. Chris says:

    Alas, the snowcock has been bobbited and stand proudly erect no more. No word as to whether it vandalism or at the request of the neighbors. Still, nearly two weeks is some damned impressive stamina. Maybe there'll be a snowcock in the next Sean Michael novel. πŸ˜‰

  16. orannia says:

    I'm probably going to be told that I've made 'nice' choices, but c'est la vie πŸ™‚

    1. C (Elevator)
    2. D (First meeting)
    3. D (Delivery man)
    4. A (Werewolf – sorry, I love shifter stories πŸ™‚
    5. C (Ice sculpture)

    Thank you Wren!

    LOL Tam! Those conflicting choices are hilarious!

  17. Ingrid says:

    Pfft, you used the elevator already too why not the pineapple?

  18. Kris says:

    I did? *shrugs* There you go.

  19. Matthew says:

    Kris, you're a softie. We used to have more bizarre things to choose from.

    1C a stuck elevator (and it's Friday evening a nobody will be around until Monday morning)
    2B one of them sings when he gets nervous (and also dances in a perfect imitation of Britney Spears – try to make HIM a part of romance, bruhaha)
    3B a bawdy grandmother
    4C feuding families (mafia families, of course!)
    5A a pentagram (on the floor of the lift they're stuck in)

  20. Tracy says:

    Ooooooh fun! I love it when you sucker, uh, I mean, allow someone to do these shorts. πŸ™‚

    1) C
    2) b
    3) d
    4) a (of course I would choose that one, puhleeze.)
    5) C

    I can't wait to read the end result!

  21. Kris says:

    Matthew, et tu??

    What's with all the bah humbug?! It's the friggin' day of hearts, sunbeams and rosebuds that taste like strawberries, people!

  22. Chris says:

    Maybe if you combined the top two winners in each category it would make Matthew happier? Such as an ice sculpture with unwanted facial hair… πŸ˜‰

  23. Chris, don't you have a blog to run or something?

    Kris, I'm so glad your romantic streak has come to the surface at last!

    Matthew, WTF?

  24. Ingrid, if there's a fruit you're really dying to have in the story, let me know, maybe I can work it in. To the story, I mean.

  25. Chris says:

    Wren! Wicked! Now visions of fruits doing scandalous things are dancing through my head. O_o

  26. LesleyW says:

    Here are mine:-

    1c, 2b, 3d, 4a, 5b

    I was really torn between werewolf and one night stand. But plumped for werewolf.

  27. Mumma J says:

    Been waiting for this for ages…
    Even though some of these are my suggestions, I can still choose: can't I? Hey that was a rhetorical question Sissy!

    1. Setting – D
    2. Background info – D
    3. Another character – C
    4. Conflict – B
    5. Object to be mentioned – D

    Good luck Wren!

    Katiebabs chook: “Oh wait, have we done a tea bagging series first yet?”

    I keep telling you, hun, that ball suckage, etc is nothing new in m/m.

    Suzi: “Make them do it more than once Kris.”

    Geez, I know I have awesome powers of persuasion and all, but doing this weekly may be a little hard even for me. πŸ™‚
