This is the time of year when I usually dust off my treadmill and try to remember that yoga pants are actually supposed to be used in a yoga class. I’ve started calling mine YouTube pants, because that’s what I do when I wear them. The endless videos don’t judge me.

I’m switching gears this year.


I’m writing about gears.

Next month I’ve got a new novella out with Samhain Publishing called Coral-600. If you’ve read my books, you’re familiar with my sense of humor. So you might be able to understand why I couldn’t resist writing from the point-of-view of a 90-year-old virgin robot. She’s discovering what all her genetically modified tissue can do, and I had to hang on for the ride with her.

I sent this little nugget onto my editor and neither one of us really knew what to do with it, but we knew it was too much fun to let sit in my computer. It’s a sexy love story that just happens to involve a robot. Coral, our robo-main character, is determined to get what she needs out of life and can’t understand why others would want to deny her things that just plain feel good.

In 2015, I want to be more like the strong female characters I write about. I want to figure out what I want and go for it. I’m trying to get organized, but for now, I’m filling my writing space with beautiful quotes. I’m journaling every day, and I’m writing down more of the stories inside my head.

If you’re looking for a book to make you smile while you’re keeping up with your resolutions, I hope you’ll give mine a try. Happy New Year!

Roxy Mews Professional PicRoxy wrote her first story at age six on an electric typewriter. It was about a cat and a haunted house. Thankfully, her stories and technology have matured since then. Now Roxy spends her days fighting the evil day job in hopes of conquering the stories that run rampant in her head when she comes home at night. When she discovered Erotic Romance, Roxy fell in love. She can’t wait to share all her fun and sexy stories with everyone.

Coral-600 Cover FINALPleasure is not a malfunction.

Coral-600 is the first and only one of her kind. An artificial intelligence prototype with realistic skin over her metal frame, she was deemed too expensive for mass production and gifted to the royal family.

She cannot legally have a relationship with a human, and it never entered her electronic brain to want more—to break the law. Until she meets Quinn, and her DNA-enhanced skin tingles with a completely new sensation. Desire.

His body damaged beyond repair in the war, Quinn survived—barely—by agreeing to have much of it rebuilt. His royal relatives have taken him in, but it’s tough adjusting to a body that doesn’t come with instructions.

As Coral helps Quinn cope with his new body, the connection between them reaches the melt-down point. But unless she can convince the authorities that humanity runs deeper than flesh and bone, she’ll have her CPU wiped clean—permanently.

Warning: This book contains artificial and natural flavors, lubricant (lots and lots of lubricant), and fun with oh-so-hard drives.

    Thanks so much for letting me stop by! Happy New Year to everyone out there. And if you are in need of it this morning, my favorite hangover cure is McDonald’s french fries and Diet Coke. ;p

    Cheers to 2015, and let’s all enjoy the blank slate to make something amazing happen.

  2. Mary Hughes says:

    Hey, Roxy! Thanks for being my guest today. What a great resolution, to pull the strength of your character into your own life. I think I’ll try it, though maybe not Nixie levels right away 🙂 Happy New Year to you!

    • Roxy Mews says:

      Mary, if you turn into Nixie in the new year you better take pictures. 😉 But yes, I think there is a little bit of who we all want to be in our characters. Aside from the fur and fangs, I’d love to be more like my Amber. But I wouldn’t turn down the sexy fun she has either. 😉

  3. Edie Ramer says:

    Roxy, this sounds like so much fun! What a brilliant idea. Just thinking about it makes me smile, and I’m going to check it out.

    • Roxy Mews says:

      Thanks Edie! This is one of those stories that started from a “what if” and my editor took a chance on it with me. I am hoping the story makes other people smile as much as it did me.

  4. Roxy, welcome and I just want to say your book sounds like so much fun. And I love the cover and the tagline! 🙂

  5. Roxy Mews says:

    The cover artist I work with at Samhain is nothing short of brilliant. Nathalie Gray did the art for me. And my editor helped me bounce ideas back and forth until we both agreed we got to the right combo.

    This whole book pretty much flew from my fingers, and I was lucky to work with a great team who made it sing for me.

    Hi Roxy!

    That story sounds wonderful – totally up my sense of humor alley. I especially love the warning. lol.

    Nice that this nugget gets to see the light of day. There are just some stories that need to be told!
    Dale Mayer`s last blog was …Eyes to the Soul – up for pre-order

    • Roxy Mews says:

      Hi Dale! Yes, the warnings Samhain puts with their blurbs is one of my favorite part of their marketing.

      This whole idea just cracks me up. Because really…a virgin nonagenarian with a banging body was just too much fun to let linger in my brain. Thanks for stopping by!
