Programmed for Pleasure

The Ultimate Sex Toy is every woman’s fantasy come to life. When two men create it, they know the adult toy industry will never be the same. They use trickery to snare an unsuspecting woman and closely monitor all interactions between her and the toy. What Ethan Fields, scientist, doesn’t plan on is how attracted he becomes to the test subject while she has no clue that he is watching her being pleasured time and time again.A chance encounter finds Ethan meeting his test subject face to face. Meg hides her past while Ethan hides his present. Until one day when both collide, and all secrets come to light.

Country Club

Yep. That's right. This little hick chick will be going to the Country Club next Thursday.
I'm sure you're as shocked as I am. lmao

This all extends from the Red Dirt Book Festival being held in Shawnee November 2nd and November 3rd at the Shawnee Expo Center. All sorts of readers, writers, performers, and scholars will be in attendance. I'm room hosting for Jordan Dane. And then I'll be signing books and having my own talk about 3:30 pm Friday the 2nd with Merline Lovelace and Christine Rimmer.
There happens to be an Author/Donor Reception November 1st at Ye Olde Shawnee Country Club. And I have an invitation in my hot little hands. How cool and scary is that?
So I've got to find something to wear. Fix my hair. All that yada yada yada. But I plan on kicking up my heels and meeting people that I, otherwise, wouldn't normally have an opportunity to.
I'll leave my black bustier and red micro-mini at the house.
Oh...and the hooker boots.

Friends, Football, and Fall Break

I don't make friends easily simply because I don't deeply trust a lot of people. But this weekend, I lost one. She didn't pass. She's not harmed in any way. But she moved clear across the U.S. And though I'm sure she's happy, I'm going to miss her.

Sometimes I'll catch a glimpse of high school friends at my work. And we play catch-up for a few, but it's not the same. I only get little pieces of their lives now.

Went to a friend's birthday party for her son Saturday. And as I looked at her family in her house, I couldn't help but think: I know you're daughter/sister/aunt better than you do. Because for some unknown reason, we share things with each other that family just isn't privvy to. And it's nice.

I lost two best friends this last year. Through their choice and choices they made. They still haven't come to grips with that yet, but I have. And it's really too bad. You know...the kind of friends that I would gladly donate a kidney to. But no more.

So. To my faraway friend: happy. I miss ya.
To my coworker friends: Candace and Christine...thanks for listening
To my high school friends: Katie, Christi, and Jana...what are we waiting for? Our twentieth reunion???
And to the two I lost: It's too bad. I really WOULD have given you a kidney. Or any other organ of your choice if you had treated me decently to begin with.

And to my best friend now: I love you dearly, sugar. You are a bright light in every day, and I thank all that is good that I have you.

Saturday was also Middle Chicken's birthday. She got some new-fangled MP3 thing that pretty much does everything but her homework. *grins* Needless to say, it was stuck in her ears the entire weekend. *laughing* Didn't bother me a bit. So I'm down to one more birthday this month. And then I can breathe a bit easier until Christmas. *sigh* I love/loathe this time of year.
Went roller skating Friday with the chickens. I took off work, and they were on Fall Break. I was, of course, the oldest chickie on skates. *shrug* Such as it is. Only about a dozen people there. And oh yes...I DID embarrass the short people. I was dancing/skating, and if children could die of mortification...I would be sans chickens. *snickering*
Ever try to do the "cyclone" on skates? lmao

I wrote a bit Sunday on Wind Goddess, but I ended up gravitating toward another Paranormal work. *shrug* Didn't get as much done as I wanted, but there was progress made. And then I watched oldest and baby chicken play football against each other. OMG. It was too damn cute. Middle chicken, of course, had her ears plugged up with birthday present. *grins*

Hope your weekend was a good one. It's icky here right now. Cold, windy, and downright nasty. Those two weeks of fall were lovely. *eye roll*

Ahead of my time

I was browsing the News stories yesterday and found a couple that hit close to home for me.

One of the articles talked about the world of Virtual Reality and medical uses. Apologies for the url's being a tad long.
Read this:;_ylt=Att5vUt5XyjpsBIvXqaEgHvq188F

Now. The interesting part being that I wrote Virtually Yours about three years ago, and it talks about love in the world of Virtual Reality. And how my test subject, heroine, is in the case study because they need to know the effects for medical purposes.

Then I found this:;_ylt=Aju5AfxDeB9Ust4MBG9IL3rq188F

It talks about how scientists predict by the year 2050 that people will be having sex with and marrying robots.
Anyway. This brings to mind my November release, Programmed for Pleasure. Where my heroine becomes hooked up with The Ultimate Sex Toy. And she wonders to herself if this is where the fate of mankind is going. Sex with circuits.

I simply found it interesting that my fiction is another person's reality.
What do you think?

I am not amused

Ok. Maybe a little bit.
I was googling myself (absolutely no comments, I mean it *grins*) when I see that Playboy Crystal Inman is moving up in the ranks.
Go figure.
And how could you miss with this lovely tagline: There is nothing sexier than a dirty little cowgirl.

I was really hoping the chickie would kind of fall off the face of the earth. *sigh* Then I wouldn't have to worry about all these weird hits on my website. Or searchers looking to see what a dirty little cowgirl I am. *snickering*

I admit it. I write Romance. Some of it is Erotic. I'm not offended by naked chickie. I just wish she didn't have the same damn name. So God knows how many more pictures are out there floating about with her in all her glory.

Onwards and upwards.

I don't write long romance. I believe the longest I've written is around 76,000. But I'm going to try on a 90,000 for size beginning at the end of this year. I simply have a hard time with description and describing every nuance of every scene.
Brevity has been the norm. Now I'm going to have to branch out and explore the wordier side of writing life.
Oh, well. It's not like I'm going to be plotting or anything. lmao
Heaven forbid.

Finally fall!'s lovely here today. In the mid-seventies for a high with a gently northern breeze.
About damn time.

I finished Water Goddess (on time, thankyouverymuch) and am now waiting for my extremely talented Cover Artist to send me what will be the cover.
Little nervous because my November release for Whiskey Creek Press Torrid, Programmed for Pleasure, doesn't even HAVE anyone working on it right now. Or not that I know of, anyway.

I've finished one birthday and now have two more to go this month. And no, smartasses, I did NOT plan it that way. These things just, um, happened. *grins*
I blame it on my wedding anniversary being Feb. 12, Valentine's Day, and my birthday is Feb. 18. See what I'm saying? *wriggling eyebrows*

I'm working on three projects right now. Wind Goddess is number one with a bullet. And wouldn't you damn know it? It's coming to me in pieces, too. *sigh* Quite a lesson to learn here. Just when you think you've settled in with something that changes.
I'm also working on SWTWC and WATS. I can't decide whether they're going to be Erotic Romance or not. Usually I have it all pared down in my wee little head about which subgenre I'm rocking along with. But both are outside the box. *grins* Box? What box?

I'm still pulling my life together, and all seems to be going rather well with me. Hope you and yours can say the same.
I'll try and post a bit more often. *laughing* This just seemed to rather escape me for about a week. Blame it on the birthday frenzy.

I rock the Casbah

Oh yes. It's true. *grins*

I finished Water Goddess Saturday and self-edited it. Woo hoo!!! Me=done. I swear that I have never had such a hard time writing anything. I was absolutely freaking euphoric when I finished. And I was proud. *smile* So it was absolutely marvelous.

Tomorrow is baby chicken's birthday. She'll be TWELVE. Yep. *nodding* Last year that I won't have a teenager in my house. And since the chickens' birthdays are all in October...I'll actually have two twelve year olds at the same time. Then two thirteen year olds. Then a twelve, thirteen, and fourteen year old.
Does it make your head spin?
Does mine. LMAO

I started on Wind Goddess because, damn it, I could. And that is going swimmingly snarky. Erin, my Water Goddess heroine, is the polar opposite of Sylvia, heroine of Wind Goddess. Oh man. To unleash the snark? Absolutely priceless. *rubbing hands together*
That'll be all kinds of fun.

Watched football Sunday. That was my all day treat to myself since I worked my ass off on my book and finished.
OMG! Brett Favre now holds the record for Touchdown passes in the NFL. I LOVE HIM!!! He is the reason I started watching football to begin with. My chickens probably resent him...but too bad. HA!
And the Packers are 4-0. Are you kidding me??? And with the youngest team in the NFL???
God, I love this time of year. *sigh*

p.s. Go vote for me please! It's about four posts down from this one. You can vote at Night Owl Romance until October 31, 2007. Once a day. I'm under C'ann Inman and Moon Goddess/Sun Goddess.
Appreciate it. :)~~
