Messiness at it's most entertaining


Recent 5***** $0.99 on Amazon and Barnes & Noble Contemporary women's fiction

            "Rachel felt like she hadn’t seen the Gem Rats in months. They’d fly by each other on their way in and out of the gym, but they hadn’t been together socially since Jillian’s house. It was time for a party, time to catch up. Stella kept her up-to-date on the gossip. She knew that Ali had ended the affair with her architect. That Stella had asked for a divorce and Tommy had moved out, and that Stella had gone to have a drink with Greg.      That was an attraction Rachel did not understand. Nor did she understand how Stella could be so clueless about men. Even if she was crazy enough to spend twenty years in a shitty marriage, hadn’t she at least observed the people around her? Taken to heart and listened to other women’s stories, knew that men could lie and cheat?"

Polynesian flare


       Kiki’s had open windows that looked out onto the beach, a sort of Polynesian interior d├ęcor with a bamboo pattern on the front of the bar. Coconuts carved into faces sat between liquor bottles that lined the shelves behind the bar. They chose a table in front of one of the windows and ordered the specialty drink: Mai Tai’s. The drinks came with little umbrellas in them, and Heather picked hers out and put it above her ear in her hair. It made her look a little exotic.

Impo'tant

            “He t'ink he so impo'tant. T'ink he work so hard. He not so good at work,” Devin said.
            “Dumb ass,” Roni whispered.
            It made Devin laugh timidly for the first time. Roni could tell he was guarded with his answers, trying to size up who she was, and what she wanted. They never moved from the shade of the covered walkway, and not another soul came onto the dock while she was there. Roni assumed his job could get pretty boring.
            “What do you do all day if there are no people?" Roni asked. "Do you read?”
            “Only one book,” Devin said.
            “One book at a time?” she asked, confused.
            Roni was an avid reader and many times she would start another book before she completely finished one. Even though his office setting was beautiful and serene she figured he had to do something to occupy his mind.

          “No, only one book, da Bible.”

Something right

Yesterday another 5*****, it really tickles me when a reader connects. I don't expect every person to like my writing style, but when they do and get emotional about it I feel like I've done something right.

"BOY IN A BAND" $0.99 now on Amazon, Nook, and Smashwords

            “That’s okay with me. I want you to teach me everything that makes you happy,” I said.
           “You made me happy when you let me into your bed last night. You made me happy when you agreed to lose Ben.”
             I rose up slightly and looked into his face.

            “When you asked me if I loved him, I realized it wasn’t right, but I wasn’t sure why you cared. Your motives almost always confuse me. With Ben, I guess, I was in love with the idea of love. We only were together those few short months before I moved. I should have guessed once I was gone, he would be off to someone new.”

Bargin $0.99

Erotic rock star romance---Amazon Kindle

            I tried the main powder room off the hall, but the door was locked. I went down the hall towards Mathew’s room and the bathroom there. It wasn’t occupied, so I used it and checked my makeup—still okay. I adjusted my suit and opened the door.
            “Oh,” I said, startled to find Mathew standing there.
            He pushed me back inside and locked the door.
            “What are you—” I started.

            He didn’t let me finish. Instead, he pushed me up against the door and kissed me hard.
