Ear Candy: Three Short Stories

I started writing all-dialogue stories when I saw how much fun Terry Bisson was having with this format. The first was “Dezyrah’s Talk Dirty To Me,” which I wrote for “hot night” at Chicago-North RWA, my Romance Writers of America chapter. We were only supposed to read ten pages. I felt pretty cocky going in, because I knew my hot scenes were much admired. Then I realized all my hot scenes were at least twenty pages long. Hey, it’s not easy to get everything—setting, backstory, visuals, emotions, sensations, and action—into ten pages! Finally I settled on writing just the dialogue, and wrestled the rest into the conversation as much as I could. It was a total hoot to write. Then I wrote two more. And here they are.

Repo Babe

Janie gets a summer internship with her aunt’s company, moving displaced souls from one religion’s afterlife to another. Janie’s gonna be a repo babe. A very short story in the universe of SLACKER DEMONS. ________ This story is the first thing I ever wrote in the Slacker Demons series universe. I wrote it for a brilliant anthology called “What Not To Do As A Young Witch” that never got published, alas, because two key players’ coven imploded. But the notion of Heaven and Hell becoming these cumbersome, unwieldy, completely nonfunctional bureaucracies got a grip on me, probably because I spent so many years as an office temp. Look for a new series in this universe called Coed Demon Sluts in spring of 2017. I love dark chocolate, Chicago, and crows.
