Bridget Midway...wide open!

Good morning, my sexy bitches!

I'm sure I've chatted with a lot of you, but I think this will be the first time that I will do a full introduction to the Parker Publishing readers.

I'm Bridget Midway, and I write erotica and erotic romance. Usually I write BDSM erotic romance, but for my story, "Bitter Ball" in the What White Boyz Want anthology I toned it down. Believe it or not, I can be tamed.

"Bitter Ball" is an interracial romance about two friends who attend a Valentine's Day ball for singles and discover that being single may not be all that it's cracked up to be.

I love writing stories with friends because I think to be great lovers, you have to be good friends. Plus I think readers like the idea that a current friend has the potential of being a lover. I know in my life, that's how it happened.

My writing career...

I've been writing since I was about 11 years old. Of course back then I wrote sweet romances, mainly stories with my friends as the main characters and whatever hot celebrity or singer that they loved at the time. So lots of stories with Prince, every member of Duran Duran, George Michael of Wham UK! and Michael Jackson without the skin ailment. Of course I'm dating myself, but you get the idea.

Around high school, my stories started getting a bit risque. Thank God for cable. I knew kissing. I knew heavy petting. And I knew about the missionary position. Anything beyond that, I had no idea what people could do for one another. Now I have a great time creating scenarios for my characters. Hopefully readers dig reading what my twisted mind puts out.

A bachelor of arts and master of arts degree later, I started getting my work published about four years ago. I wish I had more time in the day to write more. And I hope to write more for Parker Publishing.

If you want to know more about me, you can find me all over the 'net.

And speaking of Book Tours, I'll be doing a multi-author meet-and-greet on Saturday, February 28th from noon to 3 p.m. at the Central Library branch at 660 W.Fifth Street in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I'll be signing print copies of What White Boyz Want as well as other fan faves like Love My Way, Fascination Street and Original Sin. I'm hoping I can get print copies of Coming Together: At Last-Volume 2 by then. If not, then there's always the Leather Flea Market and Fetish Fair in Washington, D.C. next month. If you're in that neck of the woods and can make it out there, I would love to see you!

Hopefully you all have gotten a good idea about me as an author and a person. I'm pretty harmless. Actually, I'm a bit of a reclusive nerd. But my writing is blunt and forward and envelope-pushing. If you dig that, then you'll dig me...I hope.

Until next month!

Stay sexy,

I agree with you! Friends do make great partners in any story. I like the idea that true love can be right in front of you if you open your eyes to it. :)

Love the post, Bridget, and insight into you!

Hi Bridget! "Bitter Ball" sounds intriguing. I too love the "friends" premise. Friendship should definitely be the cornerstone of any relationship.
