Break Up Remorse-Revisited

Image
Break up remorse is buyer’s remorse in reverse.  After shopping and spending your electric bill on some space taker you’ve never in life seen before you put it in your cart, it’s hard when you get home and realize you actually have to take it out of your car.

“Can’t I take it back”, you think to yourself.  “It’s not too late, the charges will be reversed on my bank card before the electric bill due date”…Been there, done that and have several t-shirts and monogrammed handbags to prove it.  Breaking up is very similar, and the thought of being alone rather than in a dead-end relationship may cause us to desperately cling to one more thing we do not need—in the closet or otherwise.  Get over it.  We do not have the right nor the privilege to play hide and go seek with a lover’s emotions.  Holding on out of selfishness is cruel.  I’ve seen the result first hand.  Maybe you are randy baby and know that relief is a text or phone call away.  You know you can call the human dangling participl…

Skin Against Skin - FFF

Welcome Fellow Fathomers and thank you for joining me in The Locker for the Friday Flash Fiction. It's where a crazy group of us get together and write exactly 100 words, no more-no less, about a specific photo for the week.

Check out this intriguing shot:



“You said you were open to anything, so, why do you turn your head away?” He whispered, pushing her down into the triple layer chocolate cake.
“When I said anything, I had no idea you meant sploshing! I’m getting frosting up my feminine wiles.” She giggled, attempting to shift away from his tightening grip. However, his growing arousal indicated she should prepare for the duration.
“Oh, babe, doesn’t it feel amazing against your skin? The combination of cake and your exquisite deliciousness is almost too much! Now, darling, get ready, because she is about to splash more milk our way!”

Yummy! Now that you have read my interpretation, please visit my friends for their imaginative take on this photo. Caution, some of the other blogs …

Let's Meet a Sadist

Welcome to The Locker today, Fellow Fathomers!Thursday’s blog discusses my upcoming book, Finless.Finless is a dark journey into the recesses of human extremities. If you have ever had a dark thought and wondered how “normal” it was, please realize that everyone has abrasive thoughts, edgy desires, and intense feelings at one time or another. It is how we choose to act on those mental barrages that separate the masses. Sarah, Nathaniel, and Lily resist unconditional love as they feed primal desires.Not believing the possibility of having it all, they struggle to believe that they, the “least of these”, rightfully deserve a lifetime of love and happiness-- Especially with how graphically and unconventionally they choose to express themselves. Each of the characters comes to realize how tortured their lives have become.Violent images, dreams, and actions occur as they spiral downward into their dark existence. Reaching personal impasses, they must decide how they will make their lives b…

What Is a Kill Kit, Really?

Hello Fellow Fathomers! Welcome to FFF, the Friday Flash Fiction series. Where my friends and I have one photo prompt and write exactly 100 words to describe what we see. 




I hope he approves of my technique. It looks like she is falling for it. “Do you live around here?” He asked the question innocuously in her ear.
As she lightly held his wrist, she slightly slurred her words. ‘Not far, come over for a nightcap. Only thing, you might have to endure my roommate.”
Oh, two for the price of one-even better. “Is this a girl roommate or a boyfriend?” He required clarification.
“Yes, silly, a girl!”
His mentor, watched diligently, waiting for the signal. As soon as they left, he would follow-with their “play” kit in the trunk.





Now that you have absorbed my interpretation, visit some of my friends for more sassy storytelling. Caution, some of the other writers will have some very explicit 100 words, so, be ready for the heat!!!!

Why Try Harder?

Good Afternoon Fellow Fathomers! Today in The Locker I address the subject of winning. However, I do not approach the subject as vehemently as Charlie Sheen, “The only thing I’m addicted to right now is winning.”Winning is not my personal addiction, however, finishing strong is my drug of choice.
For me, this entire thought process began when my first book, On Ellicott Street, hit the worldwide web. I happy danced around, had a couple of gin and tonics to celebrate, and chowed on oysters on the half-shell with my family. A few friends even stopped by the local hangout, Pick Six, because I advertised it as my book release happy hour.I chatted and handed out a few bookmarks. It was awesome. The high lasted for about 24 hours before the realization hit, “Oh, shit, just because it’s OUT there DOES NOT mean it will sell well.” Panic-stricken moment anyone? If you’ve been there, done that, can I get an “amen”? And, so began the labor intensive process of pimping myself out for any guest blog pa…

Valentine's Day Comes Early....

Happy Early Valentine’s Day Fellow Fathomers!

Love is a crazy ride not for the faint of heart. Only when we are ready to embrace the fear of the unknown will we truly take the ride. Love does not have to be gentle to be meaningful, and may even seem cruel in some ways. However, when you find someone you fully give your heart to—you cherish every twist and turn.

My upcoming book, Finless, set for release April 2012 from Secret Cravings Publishing will take readers on a dark journey of intensity, sexuality, and self-discovery. All on the route to finding-LOVE. Please read an excerpt from my upcoming-Finless.



“Nathaniel took the riding crop from the hanging rack on the wall.He slid the leather against her skin and would occasionally lightly smack the stiff shaft of the crop against her bare skin.She started to melt into the cuffs, as the adrenaline high started to pulse in her veins.With each stroke of the crop, he used more force and the leather began to leave welts on her exposed skin.The…

Stage Fright

Image
Good evening fellow fathomers!

On this Monday evening, I began thinking about the books we write or the movies we watch from the concept of the "Stage Fright" angle. Wikipedia calls Stage fright or performance anxiety "the anxiety, fear, or persistent phobia which may be aroused in an individual by the requirement to perform in front of an audience, whether actually or potentially (for example, when performing before a camera)."and goes on to state..."It has numerous manifestations: fluttering or pounding heart, tremor in the hands and legs, sweaty hands, diarrhea, facial nervetics, dry mouth, erectile dysfunction. Stage fright is most commonly seen in school situations, like stand up projects and class speeches."

I don't know about you, but erectile dysfunction while attempting to perform in public is probably not such a negative. I mean, if a guy has a big biology project presentation, I'm fairly certain he does not want an unexpected visitor to…
