Ice Fairy 2: Decisions is finally here!

Sam is at a crossroads. At one end he has the defeat of not going to the Olympics; his life’s dream. On the other end however, is Brett; who has taken command of his heart. 
Right in the middle is a myriad of decisions to be made. First and foremost is college or the agonizing option of trying for the Olympics again. Both would be grueling and both would not allow Sam much time with his Brett. 
Will things heat up just to cool off and go down in a blaze of glory for Sam? Or will they stay the course for the young figure skater? 
It’s time to make some decisions.

Bittersweet Day

Hello all!
As most of you know, for the past 3 1/2 years I have been the owner of Romance First Publishing.
As of Tuesday, that company will be shut down.
Why? Due to lack of time, and a very tumultuous personal life; I no longer have the resources with which to run it properly and to the extent I wish.

I want to thank everyone who's been supportive and of great help over these years, you rock!!

That said, what little time I do find to write of late is my own work, which I will be releasing in small, but hopefully regular, doses. I hope you'll join me on my continuing journey.

Thanks again!

It's a new dawn...

It's a new dawn for me! After a long time of being somewhat 'off the radar' as far as book releases, etc...I am very happy to report that things will be a'changing!

Perhaps inspired by age, the year, or by death itself (a reminder always that life is short and we should do what we were born to do) and part of that for me is always.... a writer.

Luckily my well did not run completely dry. There have been great stories penned between myself and Nephylim (The Upstaged series) as well as the Ice Fairy series. (finishing edits on book 2).

But that isn't enough and hasn't been enough. School took over my life, then finding work, and then again (most work now is contractor) so that's a constant.

Finally! Some stability is creeping into my world again. I am signed on to be working at least til the end of this year, we're staying put in our current abode, the cats are healthy, I'm getting long overdue medical work done, and life is finally calming down. What better time for writing?

After nearly 8 months of not putting 'pen to paper' I am finally back...and to quote Michael Buble:

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me......and i"m feelin' good!

Thank you all very much for sticking by me, with me, and supporting me during these dark times.

Much love to all and cheers!

Ice Fairy review!

This made my day!

Review of Ice Fairy, by Stephanie L Danielson...given by Headstall

If you are looking for excellent male/male romance, I highly recommend this book. The writing is superb and the flow of the story takes you on a wonderful journey of conflict, resolution and love. Our heroes are a most unlikely pair...the big,brawny hockey player and the smaller, power packed figure skater who manage to break down barriers and show us that when two people want it, love will find a way. This is truly a sweet, well-crafted story with just the right amount of tension and drama to keeper the reader engaged throughout. I can't imagine anyone not falling in love with this story or the wonderful characters.

Crazy Town

LOL...I love that suggestion; humor gets us all through the day sometimes.

Life is a little odd right now; I became unemployed three weeks ago and have been looking for a new gig ever since. The market here in STL is tough!!! But I hope to find something soon or start to price out cardboard boxes to make a shack from.

But as always, there is good news! Boy kitty, Jack, is doing so much better. Six months ago it seemed like he was just a breath away from leaving us for the great big catnip buffet in the sky. Luckily, that is not true at all anymore. His back paws are not bugging him anymore so he can jump and clamor up the steps again and play! His insulin shots are not his favorite, we hate giving them to him too; but they have helped save his far too young life. (He's only 10).

So, we feel very blessed to still have our little guy around and our little girl too, who is 14 and as rowdy as ever. Daytime you cannot tell; but nighttime she's as rambunctious as ever.

Other than that; I've left school and have decided to punt accounting entirely. Writing is my love, not numbers. I've also gotten back to drawing and painting too. I'll take some pics sometime of my old works vs the new...all I'm asking is for you to please be kind. It's been decades since I've created anything of the sort...

Writing isn't coming easy nowadays; despite dozens of wip's...but I think once I know I have an income again, I'll feel safer and able to stop worrying.

And on that note...on this Memorial Day and remembering my family members who served our country and thanking them for their contributions to help keep us free.

Welcome my guest blogger today: Dakota Trace!

You’re Sticking What…Where?
While most of you may know me as an author of erotic romance in a variety of genres, some may not be aware that I’m also an avid reader. (Not a shocker huh?)  I love to read and review in my spare time and one of my favorite genres to do this for is m/m and BDSM.  So recently I downloaded a couple of books by J.A Rock and Lisa Henry, from their The BOY series. This series appealed to me because of its darker, even edgier feel to it.  As I was reading, imagine my surprise when I ran across Derek using urethral sounds on Lane, his submissive. 
Don’t know what that is?  According to Wikipedia:
Urethral sounding is the medical use of probes called sounds to increase the inner diameter of the urethra and to locate obstructions in it. Sounds are also used to stretch the urethra in order to receive genital piercing.
Okay…we’re talking a medical instrument here? This shouldn’t be a total surprise. The naughty nurse and patient fantasy is probably one of the biggest role play fantasies around.  So in essence what Derek was using a slender stainless steel rod inside of Lane’s dick to stimulate and pleasure his sub. 
Of course being the curious kitty that I am, I wanted to actually see what they looked like. The book had been pretty good about describing the usage and precautions of using them, (sanitize with rubbing alcohol, use plenty of good lube and of course take it slow…lol)   but I actually wanted to see what one looked like.  *grins* And Google is such a wonderful thing!  After a few hits and misses my screen was flooded with all kinds of images from the bizarre – that looks weird to ouch – you’re planning on putting that where?  
There is a wide variety of sounds that range from straight to curved ones. There are even specialty ones that are ribbed, beaded or have a bulbous head on them.  It amazes me what someone might insert in such a sensitive area.

Straight Sounds (Hegar Sounds): don’t let the name fool you.  These sounds are not completely straight. They normally are about 8 inches in length and go from 1/16th to 5/8th inches.  I will admit these look a bit more intimidating to me than the curved ones. Especially the 5/8th one.  This particular set comes with 8 sounds…each one having a different size at each end.

Curved Sounds: are usually up to twelve inches in length and are curved on either end.  These are best used with beginners and from various articles I’ve read, are not the most comfortable if the penis is erect.  They usually come in sets and range from 1/8th of inch to 9/16th of inch.

Bulbous Sounds: this particular set of sounds looks like something right out of a torture film.  With a large bulbous head on each sound, this kind of sound appeals to those who have fetishes for older medical versions of this instrument.  (these were originally used to measure the size of a woman’s cervix.)

So there you have it. You can claim you learned something new today. And while I may be bit on the kinky side, well maybe more than little… *winks* if I happened upon two guys using these on each other…well I’d stop and watch. 

*information and pictures of individual sounds came from:
