Cross Dressing our, I mean cross PROMO

by Kate Richards

Good morning campers! 

Decadent Publishing hopes you are making as much of the summer as we are here at Camp IwannaNewBookAndTheTimeToEnjoyIt. The fresh air and pine trees are providing a lovely atmosphere for our writing and editing endeavors. We are swimming in the lake (Kindles in zip top bags, of course), riding the trails with our special laptop bracing saddles and generally enjoying our relaxing summer vacation. At the end of the season, we’re putting on a show! We were considering re-enacting one of the 1Night Stand stories but realized it would ruin camp’s PG13 rating. Looks like it will have to be a story from the Bono site! Those are enjoyable for the whole family.

Around the electric campfire the other night, we were making s’mores Margaritas in our solar charged blender, and the ideas were flowing like the delightful drinks. Sweet and tasty. 

1Night Stand is open for submissions and we would particularly like to see some stories with a Latino flavor. The Castillo family is Cuban…Jagger and Jackson are as hot as anything and we’ve been hearing that readers would like to see more hot heroes like them. Do you like to write Puerto Rican, Mexican…Argentinian, or Spanish (and more!) characters? We’d love them to be part of our series. Interracial stories are always welcome, and popular!

M/M…bring em! Ménage, why not? We’re very excited about the upcoming stories and can’t wait to see more!

Everyone applauded, even those who hadn’t put their drinks down, so a bit of sweeping up and the whirring of the blender interrupted the proceedings, but with everyone’s glasses dusted with sugar, and fresh, fluffy marshmallows floating in the yummy chocolate beverages, topped with a smidgen of graham cracker crumbs, we got back to business.

A crossover, with a 1Night Stand date taking place in one of the other Decadent series would be a welcome addition to the lines! Freewill, Elatia…
I keep thinking of the Honor Guard line. A lonely American far from home, defending our embassy from any and all dangers? Wouldn’t he like a date? A nice girl to spend the evening with and ohhh, well…anything past that is up to them!

Take a look at the website and see if any of these ideas inspires you.

I have to go now, I’m in charge of the refreshments for our next campout, and I’m thinking of the possibilities. In fact, leave a comment and suggest a brand new and exciting beverage I can concoct in my handy solar blender…and I’ll pick one commenter at random and award the winner’s choice of a 1Night Stand book!

Happy summer, campers! Be sure to watch out for sunburn and mosquitoes.


  1. Try Vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, milk, and A LOT of Baileys!! (I'm currently attempting to write a 1NS)

  2. 1 bottle Parrot Bay rum
    2-3 limes (chop up 1 1/2 and slice the other)
    1/2 cup sugar or splenda
    mix rum, sugar and chopped lime and chill
    pour over ice and garnish with the sliced lime
    PS: beware nolonger tastes like alcohol and will hit you like a brick. Enjoy

  3. OMG potent but sounds delicious!

  4. this is one of my old time favorites. mainly because it has Captain Morgan's spiced rum in it and i love that stuff!.

    serves: 1


    3/4 ounce(s) Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum
    1/4 ounce(s) blackberry liqueur
    1/4 ounce(s) crème de banana liqueur
    2 ounce(s) orange juice
    1/2 ounce(s) grenadine
    8 ounce(s) crushed ice


    Add Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum, blackberry liqueur, crème de banana liqueur, orange juice, grenadine, and crushed ice in a blender.
    Blend until slushy and pour into glass.

    or if you are a simpler person like me you can just add a little captain to your coffee with some cream. :D
