My friend Betty Rocksteady did a blog series to promote her new book ARACHNOPHILE (which you can purchase by clicking here) during the month of July. Each week, she asked authors to write tiny 500 word spider romance stories.
Well, considering that writing about bugs and writing about sex are my two favorite topics to write about, I decided to commit to writing a brand new spider story for every week of her promotion. Here they are, in chronological order:
Week 1: Spiderfuck: An End of Life Memoir
Channeling my inner Edward Lee, I wrote a real weird redneck story to start things off. http://nbas2015.blogspot.ca/2016/07/spider-romance-microfiction-week-one.html
Week 2: Pregnant
Still kinda rednecky, I wanted to do something a tad different in the second week. So I wrote about a dude getting knocked up by a giant spider… http://nbas2015.blogspot.ca/2016/07/spider-romance-microfiction-week-two.html
Week 3: Psyder
I wanted to get away from the redneck shit, so I went full weird sci-fi/horror/pervert with the third week, complete with a nice twist ending… http://nbas2015.blogspot.ca/2016/07/spider-microfiction-romance-week-3.html
Week 4: Steve the Spider
Full on pervert mode for the last week. I wanted to do some body horror, too. http://nbas2015.blogspot.ca/2016/08/spider-romance-microfiction-week-four.html
Well that’s it! My story Pregnant from week two won me the contest and an eBook copy of Betty’s book, AND since I was only one of two people to do stories for the whole series, I also got a sweet poster print from Betty’s collection. Thanks Betty!
