Sometimes a publisher and author have to part ways and this has been the case for me. I am no longer signed with Rebel Ink Press for my release Love’s Exposure. The decision is based on business reasons only and I support those wanting to sign with Rebel Ink Press…they are super to work with and are an amazing bunch of people!

The sun came up slowly that morning. The dew on the leaves was shimmering in the sunlight. Patrice was the first one up and out of bed that morning. She was full of energy and ready to get her day started.
Myles was still lying in bed when the snooze alarm went off for the third time. “Come on honey, time to get up”, said Patrice as she leaned in to whisper in his ear, “rise and shine my handsome man!”
Myles groaned at the thought of getting up so early on a Saturday morning. He wanted to stay in bed and sleep longer. Patrice reached under the blankets and placed her cold hand on his bare butt. When he jumped at the ice-cold futile attempt to get him out of bed, she jerked the blankets back completely uncovering him.
He grabbed ahold of her pulling her down on top of the bed. He straddled her and pinned her arms to the bed above her head. His naked body was pressed against hers and this excited her. She reached up to kiss him and he moved his head back out of the way. He giggled and said, “This is what you get for waking me up so early”, as he rolled her over and slapped her on the bare skin of her ass.
She flinched under the sting and said, “I must have really been a bad girl to get a spanking on my wedding day.” She rolled over and looked at Myles who was grinning ear-to-ear and said, “Now get up, we have a lot to get done today.”
He let go of her hands and she sat on the edge of the bed waiting for him to place his feet on the floor. She nudged him in the ribs and he growled and grumbled, but finally sat up. “Come on sleepy head, let’s get this day started”, she said and placed a subtle kiss on his cheek.
He headed for the bathroom where he turned on the water for his shower. He left it a little bit cooler than normal and let the cold water refresh him.

I woke up this morning wondering where the year had gone. It didn’t seem like December with no snow on the ground and sixty degree weather, especially for the northeastern states. I did however manage to take a peek at the different friends I have made over this past year and smiled knowing they will be a part of my life, for the rest of my life. Their memories will linger in my mind long after the year has gone by and my memory will be full of the times we shared together.
Is it wrong to remember other people and the impact they have had on your life, even if you can’t recall how you spent your previous year?
I love the thought that our brains work so mysteriously that we can recall a fond memory or even a sad time before we can remember what we had for breakfast. It is like separating files and photos on your computer, leaving room to store more and putting the nonessentials in the recycle bin.
Do we remember things that only leave a mark on our mind or do we selectively remember different events that are, or were, attached to an emotion?
Do our memories attach themselves to emotions so we won’t forget them or do they follow the path of least resistance like a liquid and trigger each other from time to time?
However our minds and brains work, I am glad that I have had the chance to meet some really wonderful people and reserve a spot for them to continue sharing memories with me – even if filed somewhere in the unknown of my intellect.

Where do you get your story ideas from?
I have been asked - When you write your stories, where do you get your ideas from? My answer is this…
It depends on what type of book I am writing. If I am writing a romance story, I generally get my ideas from books, movies, and my own personal life. I also try to combine information from stories I have read, movies I have watched, and thoughts shared on a more personal side.
I tend to shy away from writing stories where I cannot build the background knowledge or information in my mind first, then put it on paper.
So now I ask you… When you write your stories, where do you get your ideas from?

Hello world of Romance and Erotic writers and readers. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you.
I am “new” to the world of writing romance and erotic books. I have been writing for many years, but have not had the chance to put anything under my own name. I was always in the background of another story for another writer, but not my own work.
The times have now changed for me and I can take some time to write my own stories and build my own fan base.
I hope I can fit into this little piece of pie that seems to have exploded into a bite for everyone who was setting at the table, with fork and knife in hand, prepared for the tiny morsel that awaited them.
Now as I brush the crumbs off into my hand and wipe the corners of my mouth, I will gently slide my chair back and arise into the world of writing.
Won’t you join me…
