Santa in an Outhouse?????

Image
Hello Depth Explorers....

I've been MIA from the blog for time to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with my beautiful family.  I hope you all had an amazing weekend, and for my friends abroad and beyond the contiguous US who do not celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope the upcoming holiday season fills you with warmth however you celebrate.

Each year The Husband dwells on how to up the stakes for the outdoor spectacle otherwise known as the Christmas lights display. I think he purposefully waits for well after Thanksgiving weekend to size up the competition and see who on the block he will out-shine.
Yes, I add the stereotypical Clark Griswold image into the post at this time.  IMHO, it isn't the lighter side of Christmas without this classic. 
However, we also decided to represent the REAL reason for Christmas, by constructing a Nativity scene. The Great White Hunter--AKA, my son, Aaron, brought down some old wood and tin from an "antique" shed from the Ranch in Oklahoma t…

It's Only 600 Words and I Need Your Help! :)

Hello Everyone!

Today in The Locker, I promote my 600 word short, Barren Lands. Yes, just 600 words.  It's a flash fiction inspired by my courageous son. 



This truly is NOT a tale about infertile women

but, a serious look at how a young man deals with loss.


Right now, I have it published on Lulu and it is downloadable for FREE, yep, FREE. 

I really need reviews and candid critique.  I know you, all my friends, will be happy to oblige.  So, please take just a few minutes to check it out.  The piece is G rated, and suitable for just about anyone.  Especially anyone who has experienced loss, and not sure how to move forward from it.  Thank you everyone!

Author Sara York Writes-How I Lick My Balls - A Story of Schweddy Balls and One Million Angry Moms

Image
Ok, today, I had to pimp my friend, Sara, on my blog.  She writes an excellent post about ice cream, overreacting, opening the doors of communication about sex, and why we should all take ourselves a little less seriously sometimes and just have FUN with life....take a look

How I Lick My Balls - A Story of Schweddy Balls and One Million Angry Moms
Have you heard? Schweddy Balls is out in...Well some stores are carrying the delightful treat, Schweddy Balls, but because One Million Moms got all pissy about the name of the ice cream most stores aren't. I went to the Angry Moms site and read their claim about why they didn't want Schweddy Balls in the stores and their answer was -
The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive. Not exactly what you want a child asking for at the supermarket." - One Million Moms.com  Have to say that the flavor is not vulgar, rather good if you like rum.


Seriously, there a…

Author Bonni Sansom is Here for a Visit!

Image
Today in The Locker, we have author Bonni Sansom.  Her recent release, Jack's Christmas Wish, is now out for purchase.  It's a sweet tale with enough heat to turn this sizzler from heart-warming to heart-throbbing.  Bonni obliged me and stopped by to share a few words with me.  Thank you Bonni for visiting me.  Now, let's settle in with peppermint mocha coffee and get down to talking!

Hi Davee thanks for having me. First, I would like to start by introducing myself to everyone. I’m Bonni Sansom a full time mom, author and domestic goddess. I love to write hot steamy romance novels and my first release was on 11/11/11.
Jack’s Christmas Wish was originally a short story that ran amok. The characters took me on a journey (Yes, they talk to me) that led me from a short sweet love story to a BD/SM steamy romance. They were quite adamant about their desires. But the gist of the story is Lissa is a woman that’s hit hard times and takes a job as Santa’s sexy helper in a department s…

Charlie Sheen Got Nothin on Us

Wow, what a day.  We celebrated Veteran's Day one more day by running a 5k race this morning.  I very much enjoy the competition.  The Husband and I both received 3rd place medals for our age divisons.  I admit, running, cycling, and triathlons tend to be more competitive the further up in age I get.  But, the recovery period also becomes vital the older I become.  LOL
What a day, I don't even have the energy to write a decent blog today.  But, I'll make up for it later.  Take care everyone and I hope this weekend holds a nice surprise somewhere for everyone. 

Honoring Veteran's and Something Else To Check Out

Image
Good morning, What a beautiful Thursday, even better because it's my Friday.  BIG however at this junction though because, it would not be my Friday without Veteran's of the United States of America, so, big Thank You right now to everyone who defends our nation.  (and not thanking because i get the day off, either)

My grandfather was a Korean Conflict veteran, and the physical scars had nothing on the mental ones.  Sometimes, I wonder how men and women serve and retain their sanity.  It's a huge undertaking that not everyone can accomplish successfully, so again, my sincere thanks.

For my fellow writers out there, as a member of the Secret Cravings Publishing Yahoo Group, I became familiar with the site entitled ManicReaders.  I joined, however, have very little experience yet with this group.  Has anyone else joined this group?  If not, maybe you would like to check it out:

Just Sharing the Love

Image
Good morning, today in The Locker I once again share the wonderful work of Heaven Liegh.  The reviews are coming in for her first book, The Demon Side, and from all the scuttle I see, it's certainly worth the time. 


I, too, have a first to report.  I finally downloaded the Kindle app to my phone and my very first purchase is, yep, you guessed it, this book right here.  I can't wait to get started reading so I can add my review to this growing list of stars and lulus and all other kinds of kudos. 
Our friend, Lisa, had beautiful words to share for Heaven, and please click the link below to read them too. 
It's the Christmas season, you know, time to share the love.  So, GET BUSY~  :)

Hello fellow bloggers!
Coming off a very busy weekend, but, only opened my computer once.  Sometimes life beckons, you know?
I like to use my blog to pass along opportunities to you whenever I can and today is no exception. 
Many of us enjoy the flash fiction genre, it's a mind bending quick roller coaster ride of a story, and a challenge to say so much with so little.  To that end, I invite you to check out this contest sponsored by Lulu. 
http://www.lulu.com/blog/2011/11/01/lulu-short-story-contest/?cid=110211_en_email_SHORTSTORY
If you have experience with Lulu, I'd love to hear about it.  Good, bad, or indifferent. 
Have a beautiful Monday and happy writing!

So, my friends and I are together once again for the Friday Flash Fiction. We use this picture and give our exact 100 word interpretation of what this says to us. What does this picture say to YOU?

Today, This Is What I See:
The overcast sky blanketed the sun’s rays from highlighting her physical flaws.The low luminosity of the day was perfect for a nude photo shoot outdoors.The glass of syrah did little to calm her nerves as she hoped he would appreciate her efforts as much as she deserved.As her breasts scraped against the rough bark of the bur oak tree, she allowed her mind to melt into the feeling of the rope against her wrists, keeping her captive there.The high of rope bondage always engaged her senses gloriously. He would reap all benefits of her afterglow.
Please visit my friends with their sizzling interpretations as well. I promise you will not be disappointed. We also have a compiliation of these posts on our blog http://flasherfridayfiction.blogspot.com/.

I Won a Flash Fiction Contest!

Image
Good morning friends! 
Each month, I check out a site called http://www.wakeupyourmuse.com/.  I enjoy the challenge to keep my mind sharp and write off the cuff.  If you are looking for methods to improve creativity, this just might be the ticket.  This month's prompt: She looked hard at herself in the mirror, but this was not a face she recognized.
Deadline for this month's entries is
11:59 on Wednesday, November 30th. Winners will be announced by
Thursday, December 1st.
The contests are definitely vanilla, but, really a good time-- and I won this month!  Many thanks to Heaven Liegh Eldeen, as her description of a real estate agent, in her own work, assisted in my set-up of the story. 
Please see my short work-exactly 400 words, entitled, 'Sign From The Shower', to follow.  Enjoy!!
