“Raynia’s Magic” on Sale Through Valentines Day

In honor of it’s publication anniversary, I am able to offer “Raynia’s Magic” vol 1 of The Amethyst Desire Collection” on sale for $.99. at Amazon

Blurb:

Raynia Castellano is drawn to purchase an amethyst pendant as an impulse buy but not before the clerk assures Raynia the magic is in the woman, not the necklace that seems to call to her. And given Raynia has just left an adulterous ex-husband and has recently settled into a law practice with her oh so sexy and oh so apparently gay law partners, surely a little magic is required.

Excerpt:

Peter watched Raynia move past Sally’s desk. Just the view of her Marilyn Monroe curves awakened his cock and started an inevitable hard-on. As she turned for her office, the view of her heart shaped ass finished stiffening his erection to a painful thickness trapped in his briefs. This had to end soon.

 

The side door of his and Chase’s connecting offices opened and his partner watched him with a grin and similar evidence in the form of a tented crotch in his trousers.

 

Peter tossed instructions over his shoulder as he crossed the room. “Sally, hold our calls for a while.”

 

“Yes, Mr. Thornton.” He closed the office door and turned to Chase.

 

“I can’t suffer like this much longer.” He pulled out the chair and sat down, adjusting his pants and cock to a less uncomfortable position.

 

Chase leaned in the opening of the door. “You’re the one who had the bright idea to let her think we’re gay.”

 

“You know she was a wreck after her husband left her. She needed a place to stay where she felt safe. I didn’t exactly know how to broach the conversation of Chase and I are bi-sexual and have wanted to jump your bones since we were freshmen together. Chalk it up to, our timing sucks.”

 

Chase pushed away from the doorframe and crossed the room to lean over Peter’s chair. He punctuated his words with forefinger jabs to Peter’s chest. “Yes, well our little butterfly is emerging and if we don’t do something soon another bee is going to be dipping into that honey.”

 

Peter slapped Chase’s hand away. “Didn’t anyone ever brief you on the concept of metaphors and explain–what you do with them should be grounds for incarceration.”

BeverlysSecret_Coversmall

Beverly Carter, clerk at Salynne’s Crystal’s and Thyme could have sworn she placed the amethyst necklace in the display cabinet. How did the gem end up in her pocket? She’d have to take it back to work in the morning and explain her mistake to the shop owner.

Trying the necklace on for just a moment couldn’t hurt anything. When the clasp won’t release she has to call on her next-door neighbor, Makala Reynaud for help. A woman that Beverly is very attracted to but hasn’t had the courage to approach. She hasn’t figured out how to confess her interest without outing herself prematurely. Bev’s pretty sure the woman is a lesbian too. What if she was wrong? So Beverly’s been stuck, just as stuck as the damn necklace.

Then, Makala’s red lips were just too tempting, too perfect, too close. Stealing a kiss could open a door to disaster instead of the closet on her sexual preference. Yet, the way Makala accepted the kiss and returned it with unabashed enthusiasm blew that door off its hinges.

They spent the night talking and exploring sex every way and everywhere possible in Makala’s small apartment. Beverly had to wonder if the rumors about the necklace were true. Was this some kind of spell that might only last the night?  Could this be the beginning of something magical?

Dar’kind Promises – Secret Thirty

Today is release day for Dar’kind Promises. I hope you have enjoyed our month of secret reveals about the story and the world created through it.

My work to date with Rebel Ink Press started with the anthology Once Upon a Twisted Tale and my short The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp in Oct of 2011.

In Dec, 2011 I was part of a collaborative team from Rebel Ink Press that wrote and released Paw Prints to raise money for animal rescue.200x300PawPrints

Then in Feb of 2012 Raynia’s Magic Released. I love this cover. I dream of having it framed as art work on my wall. LOL

Later that spring we re-released the Galloping Ghoul under it’s own cover apart from the Anthology. I think that cover is probably my favorite.

And today, Dar’kind Promises is released.  Maybe this is my favorite cover. LOL. Technically my fourth real launch. Somehow, for the first time it seems real. I have a giddy excitement and so much hope for the future.

Trying the necklace on for just a moment shouldn’t hurt anything. When the clasp won’t release she has to call on her next-door neighbor for help. A neighbor that Beverly hasn’t had the courage to approach. She’s pretty sure the woman is a lesbian, too. How to broach the subject without appearing a fool if she’s wrong? So, Beverly’s been stuck, just as stuck as the damn necklace.

Then Makala’s red lips were just too tempting, too perfect, too close. Kissing her first and asking second, “So do you play for the away team too? Ya wanna play on my field?” might have backfired. Yet, the way Makala accepted the kiss and returned it with unabashed enthusiasm answered all the questions left unasked.

Makala Reynaud certainly did want to play. They spent the night talking and having sex every way and everywhere possible in Makala’s small apartment. Beverly had to wonder if the rumors about the necklace were true. Was this some kind of magic that might only last the night? Or could this be the beginning of something magical with Makala?

Promotion Secrets, Undiscovered

Catchy title? I have to admit I haven’t discovered the secret of self-promotion. That’s why I say undiscovered. I tweet, I Face Book, I blog, I guest blog, I pay for advertisement, I’ve had promotional video’s made, I’ve made my own book trailers.  It is all like so much unknown, at times,  frantic activity.  Somewhat like swimming in a blender.

I’m just a real person here trying to realize the dream of bringing my characters to life in hopes that someone will actually read the stories and enjoy them as much as I do. Oh and actually buy them rather than downloading them free from the pirates. I don’t think there is anything more simple or basic than than for a writer.

Yet, we are in the era of self publishing. It is alike a wild west frontier. The question so many authors are asking themselves is ‘How do I get through the volume of work out there (in all levels of quality) to get into the readers hands. I will say I am twice blessed to have found a publishing home at Rebel Ink Press.

However, we’ve all seen those sensations go nuclear. It’s like a cinderella story on steroids the way some books take on a life of their own with apparently very little effort and sometimes as a rather poor quality product. IMHO. A cult following arises and book becomes sensation, soaring to the top of the New York Times list, movies negotiations follow.

As writers, who’ve dedicated years to the craft of writing, we often shake our heads and….while being very happy for the successful princess of the day…. still…completely gobstobbered.  We think, ‘So n So’ writes such a better crafted story etc. the gobsmacked self dialogue continues. If someone could discover what causes the meteoric phenomena and bottle it? OMG We’d I think we’d line up around the block for a taste of the magic potion in hopes of a glimmer of the success.

So, at the end of the day. I’m just a girl with a pencil who writes and hopes to find readers who are pleased with the journey I take them on, between the pages of a book.

In the meantime, take a look at these video book trailers for a different kind of creative teaser to the stories I have out there for your enjoyment.

The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp

Hello all our Rebel Ink Blog Hoppers and welcome to my world.

I am glad you are here to share in my happiness over the release of my short “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” available at all quality e-book vendors.

First of all, isn’t that an amazing cover?  Carl Franklin the graphic artist at Rebel Ink Press is a genius.  It is a work of art worthy of framing.  I think I’ll do that!

The Galloping Ghoul story came about when Rebel Ink Press put out a call for twisted tales to come out Halloween in an anthology form.  I couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by.  I wasn’t familiar with RIP at the time but gave them a pitch that was a twist on the “Headless Horseman” story by Washington Irving.  They loved the pitch and I proceeded to write what we called for a long time as a work in progress, The Horseman.

This sexy story is an erotic male male historic romance between Nathaniel Hawkins and Ike Sandhill, a government surveyor.

BLURB:

The Galloping Ghoul rides each full moon, exacting revenge by frightening those who tormented his past. By day, he is one of the town people, Nathaniel Hawkins, an affluent entrepreneur. He identifies with Ike Sandhill, a government surveyor, and wants to protect him from the same thugs who drove Nathaniel to revenge. Ike goes to the extreme to prove to everyone how straight laced he is. He pursues Misty VonMix with the intention of marriage. Nathaniel doesn’t know how to confess his desire without driving Ike away. He comes up with a plan of seduction. Before the night is over Ike discovers things about himself he always knew, yet denied.  

Nathaniel is a powerful man and it is charming to see his attraction and hope of a love with Ike take him apart.

Excerpt:

“Massachusetts, 1790

Somewhere in the Bridgewater Triangle, old wives tell tales in hushed tones about strange lights in the sky and the Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp. They say the specter rides on the night of the full moon. They don’t know what drives him to haunt unsuspecting travelers. Those who’ve crossed his path flee in fear for their lives. If the victims know why he rides, they never say.

***

…Nathaniel drew closer in the deadly race. The gap closed but not fast enough and his heart jolted when the tired animal stumbled.

“Socrates!” Ike shouted the encouragement to his floundering steed.

Nathaniel struggled to rescue Ike from himself. He didn’t have time to calculate a fancy plan. He just needed one that would work. His options were limited but inspiration with a dose of blind luck seldom failed him. He threw back the cloak of his headless ghoul disguise, surprised the costume survived the mad race. The muskmelon head he carried to aid his full moon revelry would be forfeit. “Mother luck, do not fail me now.” Nathaniel lobbed the ball shaped fruit at Ike’s ridiculous hat  to save the life of the man he’d benefactored, secretly lusted after and suspected he loved.”

Once Upon a Messed Up Evening

Whew, what a day. I only have this one day off my day job. We are settling into a new apartment after a disastrous failed relationship that brought me to Chattanooga, TN.

We are in the new apartment, unpacking, settling in. There are so many things to replace that I had given away because my girlfriend had better etc…. now out on my own again…well I find the interest in having pots rather integral to survival.

We are mostly unpacked that his juncture. I love my new apartment. We are putting together the little decorative touches that make it homey. We have the pot rack up. Starting to find places for the art work. All of my clothes are hung in the closets. Yes…. I have two. I am FEM and love it, so, yet two closets are cool. My plants are on the balcony. I planted lettuce today. So, many little things to do that help make it home.

I was so excited to have “Raynia’s Magic” a novellette published by Rebel InK Press, released in February. It feels good.

I am still working a grueling day job. Many parts of my body hurt, all…the….time….

And while I am recovering from a tragically, awful…. failed relationship….again…. there is always hope. Hope for a brighter tomorrow, hope for renewed love, hope for happiness with someone who cares, and understands my quirky nature.

Thanks for being a reader, friend and listening. I hope you enjoy my writing. Check out “Once Upon A Twisted Tale” with my story “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” and the novellette, “Raynia’s Magic” More to come. I have a couple of dragon shapeshifters that love one woman and want me to tell their story.

I will be blogging over at Sex Marks The G-Spot this month and also at Rebel Reasonings.

This evening, I broke my phone, blew out the power in my new apartment, ordered pizza for dinner cause…duha, no power….had to have the maintenance man come from GA to fix the power….. What a day. It was technically a day off work but I ran the live long day. Took my mom (she is in assisted living) and her dog on all their various appointments, tried to buy herbs to plant (they aren’t available yet), visited the bread thrift story, several trips to Ace Hardware, I think it is time for a shower…..lol
Come on over for a visit. Thanks for being a reader. I think it is margaritaville time. LOL
