Hello Everyone! My second STONEMEN Volume is out! WOO HOO! Click HERE if you want a copy.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, Anna Argent and I have created
stories around mystical stone men who are enslaved to petty, evil goddesses.
They hang out as hot statues but can come to life under very specific
circumstances. Guess what those circumstances are. Hint: the answer can be more
Whenever a sexy heroine clicks her heels three times and says, “I want a
Stone Man all my own!”
When the statue’s owner (called a curator) is in mortal danger! (cue:
When the Stone Man gets a vacation.
When the Stone Man is sent on a mission for his goddess.
When someone accidentally knocks off his arm, a leg, or any breakable part
The answer is B, C, and D! The Stone Men animate when they’re sent on missions
(like go kill my sister’s Stone Man right now!), when the statue’s human
caretaker is in mortal danger, or occasionally when they’re rewarded with a
vacation. Sadly, they do not get to animate when someone sexy clicks her heels
and says she wants a Stone Man of her own. And really sad, they can’t do
anything to prevent parts of their statue bodies from falling off. OMG! In fact,
if they animate while an arm is missing, they’re likely to bleed out from the
injury. That would be very bad.
Luckily, every Stone Man has an OUT CLAUSE! Yup, when they are initially made
into Stone Men for their petty goddesses (there are seven goddesses), each is
given and escape clause. Every clause is different. For example, the hero of
Rock Hard is a regency era gentleman who thought he had it made with his out
clause. All he had to do is give a woman a moment of True Bliss. Well, how hard
can that be? Answer: TERRIBLY HARD because it’s 200 years later and he’s still
in service to Pyrenia.

In the second volume set of the Stone Men (pictured above) both our heroes have
had unfortunate parts of their statues broken, cracked, or missing. Their stone
bodies must be fixed before they can come to life. Tristan (the hero of “Heart
of Stone”) is riddled with cracks and pock marks everywhere. He’d die of a
thousand tiny wounds if he were to animate. Thabo, (the hero of “Rock Candy”)
has been underwater in a shipwreck for centuries. When he’s salvaged, guess what
part of him is missing.
His head. Yes, he’s a headless hottie.
Both arms. One is recovered quickly. The other takes a while because it’s
His bottom half. Yup, poor guy has snapped in two. He really can’t animate
An arm and a leg—both on the same side. So if you try to stand him up, he’ll
just topple sideways!
Answer: B – Both arms. One is recovered quickly, but the other is gripping the
wheel of the boat and has sunk deep. Fortunately, Molly Parker finds all of
Thabo’s parts and gets them reattached in a surprising way. Guess what that is!
Scotch tape and chewing gum. Yup, Molly is a regular MacGyver and can
reattach anything with the stuff normally found in your couch cushions.
She goes to a professional who uses glue designed for marble.
She ties them on as best she can (okay, so maybe duct tape was involved) and
tells him to animate. Once he comes to life, everything’s in place. That’s the
beauty of magic!
A homeless person reattaches everything with magic paste. Duh! Okay, okay,
maybe the homeless person was really a goddess.
Answer: D! There’s no tape, chewing gum, or glue designed for marble. Molly
considers all those options but doesn’t have the chance before a ragged homeless
person is putting Thabo’s arms back on using magic paste. And yes, the homeless
person is actually a goddess in disguise. She couldn’t very well just show up in
Florida in her regular outfit made of knives, could she?
