The leather is supple against my skin and I’m not sure what’s happening next, but, it doesn’t matter. My mind is whirling with a thousand naughty images, each one just as delicious as the other.
I’m waiting impatiently for her to remove the gloves and rake her sharpened nails against my tingling skin, hoping desperately her tongue follows. My erect nipples, hard as pegs, will be knobs in her warm mouth. 
Yet it’s still just a fantasy in my excited mind.
Thankfully now, as I wait for her to rise, her tongue is sliding across my slickened femininity.
Welcome 2014.

Fibromyalgia is Very Real and I’m Living Proof

Image
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers, I’ve decided to use my blog not only to writing, music, and other facets of entertainment, but, also to share my journey. My rheumatologist intially diagnosed me with SLE in June 2013, however, this may have been a misdiagnosis. So, the search for the truth continues, but, I may be close now. :)  Thank you for listening, each week I will have a new installment chronicling my journey. Please, please feel free to comment, write, share. I hope to use this forum as a help to all of us, no matter what pain you are experiencing. You may also send stories to me via finlessbook at gmail dot com. I will respect your privacy and maintain your anonymity, if you so desire. Hugs for today … Day Seven of Lyrica So, my neurologist considered the notion that my auto-immune reactions could be fibromyalgia. I can deal with that, but, first I need to admit a shameful notion: I used to believe fibromyalgia was a made-up disease. For that, I apologize for everyone who suffers with this…

Tuesday Tales with Bells On!!

Image
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers and welcome to Tuesday Tales. This week our talented group of writers has the word prompt "bells", apropos for the Christmas season, wouldn't you say? I take you now to the 3rd book in writing progress from Allee Mae's new series, The Critter Getters. The title of this one is, Finding Love in a Black Lagoon.
Let's peek in on Owen and Pearls' private conversation...
“So, what were Christmases like at your house?” Pearl kept her gaze locked on the twinkling stars above.
Owen shifted, stretched, and in one motion was lying close enough to graze her arm with his. Neither moved from their place on the blanket, but instead kept their focus on the velvety nighttime sky. “Some years good, some bad, I s’pose like anyone else.”
“Do you really believe everyone has an occasional bad holiday? You gotta be joking.”
“Things happen in life, Pearl. What if someone in the family dies, the first Christmas without them is tough, I can vouch for that. Mayb…

Just Out of My Grasp - How Much is Too Much?

Image
12/05/2013 Ahoy Fellow Fathomers, I’ve decided to use my blog not only to writing, music, and other facets of entertainment, but, also to share my journey. I found out on June 19, 2013 the reason for many of my ongoing health problems is because I have systemic lupus, also known as SLE. BRAKE HERE- I visited the University of Colorado, Denver November 13, 2013 for a second opinion. The incredible Dr. Susan Boackle University of Colorado Rheumatology agreed to see me as a new patient. She evaluated all my medical records to date and worked me into her schedule. She took a 2 hour comprehensive history with me, ordered urine tests, x-rays, and also blood tests. The phlebotomist drew 19 vials of blood for all the tests. I had juice and cookies before they let me stand up, they took almost as much blood as a donation for blood drive. I waited almost impatiently for the week to be up and my results. I wanted to know if the medication I was taking was appropriate for what was going on with me…

Many thinks to my Cali Bestie, Rhonda, for providing me with the deck of cards recipe book. J It’s now December, in the middle of my favorite time of the year. It reminds me of old school Coca-Cola Commercials…”I’d like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony…”, circling our Christmas wish list in the J.C. Penney catalog, and fires in the fireplace. Now, that’s the holidays I hold onto. WINTER SNAP!

Tuesday Tales, It's Getting Crazy Wavy Up In Here

Image
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! This week's Tuesday Tales prompt is the word "wavy". Please see how I use "wavy" in my new WIP YA paranormal romance, Finding Love in a Black Lagoon- Book 3 in the Critter Getter series




A violent shudder rustled the water and the weeds, splashing up from the surface. Fat droplets sprayed outward, hitting Caleb in the face. More determined than ever, Caleb plunged the stick further into the center. “Get out of there and show yourself!” He gritted his teeth and stood his ground.
Suddenly, the water reeds parted and another heron flew out from the center, its wings flapped and it swished the tall, wavy weeds around. Caleb reflexively jumped and dropped the stick. Owen remained still, but, his head jerked slightly backward and cocked to one side. The girls shrieked almost in unison. 
“It was a dang bird nest in there!” Kalista breathed a sigh of relief, and almost collapsed into laughter.
Caleb dropped his head backward. “I can’t stinking …

New YA Release by Allee Mae - Finding Love and Bigfoot

Image
Outside in a tent in the middle of Bigfoot territory has Kalista and Leandra more than a little frightened. Determined to demonstrate bravery, the best friends rely on Caleb and Owen, self-renowned adventurers, to protect them.  Hiking the secluded ridges, the girls meet fellow expedition partners that hire the Critter Getters, Caleb and Owen, during guided Bigfoot excursions. Exploring day and night, they eventually come face to face with one of their deepest fears.  This tightknit group tentatively treads the scary world of the mythical, all the while learning more about each other, forging deepened friendships. Caleb and Kalista feel the twinges of first love, while Owen shares a surprising, devastating loss with everyone. Leandra remains the comic relief with unexpected quips in times of stress. During their journeys and talks, the quartet becomes closer and realizes their realities may actually be scarier than any Sasquatch could ever be.

Tuesday Tales - Don't Confuse the Lube with Ointment!

Image
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! This week's Tuesday Tales prompt is the word "long". Please see how I use "long" in my new WIP erotic romance, Sexy Bea Spelling. Our heroine, Bea, uses a week to lose her inhibitions, but, did she lose her heart as well?




“We had the lights off because the toddlers fell asleep on our bed. I wanted my Tammy time before I moved them.” Craig’s face turned bright red. “I don’t think I can finish this story, my buzz wore off.” Tammy shook her head. “Craig told me something didn’t seem right, but, I said the lube was fine, just squirt out a handful and let’s go. At that point, the babies were getting restless, we didn’t have much time.” Tammy shook her head. “This sounds like some kind of Mission Impossible thing.” Craig temporarily forgot his embarrassment. “With kids, intimacy is a Mission Impossible thing, Bea, trust us.” “Craig put a large dollop in the center of my girl parts and proceeded to, you know, enter me.” Tammy put both hands acro…

Flasher Fiction Friday - What Evil is Behind These Eyes?

Pearl envisioned the group of bullies getting closer before she heard their hideous voices yelling threats of torment and maniacal laughter. The Lord of the Flies mentality permeated the group of reckless kids and today, their intensity scared her. Pearl thought how their eyes seemed evil, almost inhuman, especially the leader- the iris wasn’t even a normal color.  She focused on the sticky mud at the bottom of the river and imagined her rescuer. Pearl deepened her breathing, almost to a yogic state and forced almost every ounce of breath from her lungs, and her well timed nervous system calmed her.

There comes a time in most everyone’s life they evaluate their level of excitement, rating their existence on a scale from benign to buck-wild. For myself, I have several good stories that could make me blush, but, I’m proud to own them. Most of the good stuff happened af…

Saturday Sippers and Tommyknockers Brewery

Image
Saturday Sippers in The Locker Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Welcome to the feature here in The Locker called Saturday Sippers. Each week I highlight a new beverage, but, this week, I pay tribute to my favorite microbrewery in Idaho Springs, CO, Tommyknockers . With almost 20 signature beers, and seasonal specialty brews, this premium brewpub boasts some of the best tasting beer in the country, and they have the awards to prove it. One of my favorites is a new addition, the Pine Bough Ale, as quoted from the Tommyknockers site:



“Session-able pale ale with a hint of mountain pine. Copper in color, medium in body and malty sweetness with a high drinkability factor. The flavors and aroma sway between fruity and citrus with up front American hops and a hint of herbal mountain pine. Spruce pine needles handpicked from the Loveland Ski Area. This special beer is inspired by and made to commemorate Loveland Ski Areas 75th Anniversary. Only available on draft at Loveland Ski Area and Tommyknocker’s Pub…
