Happy holidays! I’d like to wish you all the happiest and safest of days, and thanks to those who have bought A Class Act and A Different Class (unlike other Decadent authors talking to you this week, I do not have a holiday work with the publisher. Never say never, though. It was suggested maybe I offer up a piece on how the man in my Class series might celebrate the season.
A Different Class, while part of the 1Night Stand imprint, focuses a bit on Rod’s line of work, brewing. Sigmund Brewing is small but gaining traction, and as I write more you may find the company figuring more into stories. Today, I envisioned a raucous holiday party to celebrate a successful year.
Imagine, if you will, a large meeting room draped in sparkling red and green garlands. A Charlie Brown tree sits in one corner, the long meeting table laden with supermarket cold cuts and chicken wings. Somebody’s tapped a keg of seasonal beer, and everybody has a red Solo cup in hand. There’s an iPhone plugged into a speaker and everybody’s singing along to Bruce Springsteen’s Santa Claus anthem.
Rod Maloney, the company’s owner, is seen in high spirits—it’s been a while since his employees have found him so happy, but he has reason this year. He’s brought a date, and people at the brewery are familiar with Glenn, a man Rod went to high school with but didn’t really get to know until recently. People are sketchy about how they met (something to do with a nearby resort and a blind date?) but it doesn’t matter. They’re close together and under the mistletoe, sneaking kisses while the music changes to something more traditional.
People slip in an out of the meeting room. Are they hooking up elsewhere, in abandoned offices or the narrow cubbyhole that houses the copier? Hard to say, but nobody seems to notice when Rod tugs Glenn out the door and leads him to his office.
Door locks, papers pushed aside. The Santa hat falls from Glenn’s head with a weak tinkling noise and he’s on his back on the desk, adjusting for his boyfriend’s weight on him. With fevered longing they kiss and grope each other, fueled by seasonal micro-brew and the spirit of giving. Two people who wallowed in loneliness earlier this year have no fear anymore. They have each other, and the promise of a bright future.
Merry Christmas, and to all a good night.

A Class Act
I am Leigh Ellwood. I write smutty stories about people who like getting naked and having sex. Some have more sex than others, some have sex with people of the same gender, some have sex with more than one person, and still others have sex with toys and things that require the use of batteries. My stories range from a few thousand words to well past 70k. The book list link above breaks everything down for you – genre, length, and other attributes. My books are available at Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, Kobo, and ARe. Really, just type my name in any bookstore site and something is bound to show up.
