Welcome Rebel Ink

Image
We’d like to thank our gracious host for having us over today. We’re happy to share with you a little bit about our blossoming company and you’ll get to know more about the team that makes the machine that is Rebel Ink Press run smoothly.
Rebel was born in August 2010, the brain child of five friends that envisioned a portal into the publishing world where writers were treated like people rather than a number.A place where they could grow and learn and hone their skills, flourish, all while having an open line of communication with said publisher without fear of never getting an answer or being told not to worry. A couple of us were previously published and understood that worrying is a natural part of the publishing cycle on the part of the writer and isn’t to be taken lightly. After all, these works are writer's children, being sent into an often times critical world, and worrying is just a natural part of that.
What did we know? Well, the short answer is we learned to fly so to …

Night with a Dom by Casea Major

Thanks for having me on your blog today. I came up with the idea for this 1Night Stand story while watching football one Sunday afternoon in late fall. I wondered what kind of catalyst would propel someone into experimenting with their darker sexual desires. What would cause someone to take a small step out of their comfort zone to seek fulfillment for a craving they'd never satisfied. That is how Night with a Dom was born. And as for the football tie-in -- If you buy the story and can find the hidden football reference email me and maybe you'll get a prize.
Blurb: Melody Manning’s workaholic ambition, coupled with a slave-driving former boss, has made her the youngest market analyst in her firm. It’s also killed her personal life, including losing her fiancé. When she receives a message from him on New Year’s Eve announcing his engagement to another woman, Mel loses it. Her new, more compassionate boss has the perfect solution for her—get laid. Good and laid. At his suggestion, s…

Where do Story Ideas Come From?




I’m often asked where I get my ideas for a story.  How do I come up with the plot, characters, conflicts and setting?
Each author goes about their story writing in a different way.  I have no magic formula or secret recipe and I admit most stories come to me in a very simple, minimal fashion.
I’ve come up with stories from hearing a song, people-watching, a sentence or comment in mid conversation with a friend or co-worker, something I’ve seen or read in the news…but more often than not I come up with story ideas by just a phrase popping into my head which ends up being the title. 
Yep, that simple. 
From that title, which may be only 3 to 5 words long, a story develops.  Characters are formed, a setting is built and conflicts and plots are worked out.
That’s how I came up with the light-hearted romantic suspense story for my debut novel Some Like it in Handcuffs.  From there I created Sunny Kennedy and her hero Judson Blackwolf.  I agonized over their pro…
