A Good Read

So if you're one of those secret erotica readers, and many of us are!, I've found a book I'd like to recommend. Well written, with good character development and a meaningful plot, and none of the junior high-esque language, dead plot, and utterly poor writing too often found in this genre, please allow me to recommend the book below for your reading pleasure. And it's only $1.49 - -  less than a cup of coffee at Circle K!

Be advised: this is not a sweet romance, altho a hint of romance wafts through its pages. It is solidly an erotic horror, but a non-gory one. If you read it, let me know what you think. And -- as always! -- if you like the book, leave her a nice review on smashwords and amazon. Even a "wow! loved it!" is a grade-A review, so please take those sixty seconds to thank her for her hard work. (I loved it!)

Oh - and it's only about 10,200 words long, so it's a comfortable afternoon's or evening's read. Sneak it onto your phone or tablet, and let your coworkers or your SO wonder WTH you're gasping about on breaks or in the bathroom. :-p


Back cover copy:

What happens when you stir together a sultry Mexican setting, ten college students, Mayan ruins, and a sex-crazed, mythological monster pack? An eruption of bloodshed and tears, and screams and moans that never stop, that’s what. So lick your lips and bend your hips, because this deliciously sexy creature feature is about to redefine "whorer" forever.

Warning: Smokin' Hot, Adult Content!

Things My Life Has Taught Me

Things my life has taught me: 

  • don't put off the things you love. 
  • don't suffer in your work for your whole life for things yet to come. 
  • if you love someone, tell them, or better yet, show them. 
  • so much of what bothers us really doesn't matter at all, so let it go. 
  • stand up for the weak and the small and the oppressed. 
  • do what you love. 
  • if you're unhappy, or you seek happiness, help someone ELSE. 
  • tell yourself the truth in all things, good and bad. 
  • animals are sentient, and should not be harmed by humans. 
  • cats are loyal - more loyal than most people.
  • life is suffering, and we must learn to overcome it, and we must also help others who suffer to overcome theirs.
  • tell the truth. 
  • be honorable and ethical in all things. 
  • love really is the answer. 
  • a loyal and steadfast person is a treasure beyond price.
  • don't ever take shit from bullies. 
  • don't ever let someone hit you, or call you names.
  • don't ever hit others, or call others names.
  • internalize your locus of control. 
  • understand that all conclusions are tentative. always demand proof, even from yourself. 
  • understand that all conclusions are subject to new facts. continue to seek evidence, and embrace even that which challenges your own dearly-held beliefs. make sure it's peer-reviewed and objective, though.
  • it's okay to be a warrior, but be a profoundly just one. 
  • being nice should never equal being weak.
  • learn to say "no," and mean it.
  • if you're going through hell, keep going. 
  • don't hate people who disagree with you. 
  • let go of people who don't love you, who don't love you enough, or who aren't ethical. 
  • if they do it once, they'll do it again. 
  • cheaters have a profound failing at the core of who they are.
  • watch how people treat others without power - food servers who mess up an order and animals when they do something wrong - because that's a glimpse of their truest selves. 
  • don't ride the extremes; be human, and let others be human, too. 
  • it's okay to cry, but don't do it all the time. 
  • don't make excuses. 
  • being fat is fabulous. so is being thin. be healthy, and be kind.
  • money is important, but it should never matter more than justice, or compassion.
  • don't strive to be rich; strive to help others.
  • only assholes live in mansions.
  • worry is a misuse of the imagination, and it won't help anything anyway.
  • if you're obsessing, go to the doctor.
  • speak up, even if your voice shakes. 
  • there is nothing more precious, or valuable, than compassion. 
  • we are stronger when we work together, but sometimes no one comes; don't give up, because even one person can move a mountain.
