Enjoy this I hope.
The Christmas Exhibition
by V.T. Vaughn
This is a work of erotica that is engineered in waves. Cresting in the first couple of chapters then to a trough, cresting mildly then building to a tsunami by the end of the work. The chief mechanism of this work is the arousal of the players by the mental images they have of each other enjoying the attentions of a third party. It was quite enjoyable and the writing-editing really were first rate. I recommend this book to those in the mature audience group.
Night of the Purple Moon (The Toucan Trilogy)
by Scott Cramer
This is a young adult science fiction read that has a lot in common with the Lord of the Flies trope. A comet delivers a microorganism into the Earth’s biosphere that eliminates all exposed adult humans. There was an episode of Star Trek: TOS where the children were the only survivors of a plague that killed anyone who crossed puberty. This first book explored that scenario except these children organized some for the good and some for not so good. Night is a very clean read in that the editing was spot on and has therefore earned my soon to be coveted thumbs up. As the first book in a world now having to start over I think this was an excellent product and I would recommend it to anyone.
Absolutely amazing having a friend like Jo. Everyone should.
These days, when I want to do something and I don’t know how, I generally just wade on in and have a go anyway. This leads to mistakes and quite often, breakages. Having wandered through life totally focused on one thing or another, I miss quite a lot of other things going on around me, and often come across so dim that I probably should be embarrassed. I never am though. That’s just who I am, and if I give anyone a reason to chuckle at my ineptitude as I barge on forward like a bull in a china shop, that’s alright by me. I like a good chuckle too.
Now, it occurs to me that as an indie writer, I really want to connect with actual readers of my work. I want to know what they think, and if they like what I write, I want them to…

Dayton is keeping us in sync with tracking trek milestones.
Hey! Star Trek‘s got another cool anniversary worth noting today!
Tonight marks the forty-fifth anniversary of the original broadcast of “The Trouble With Tribbles,” regarded by many as one of Star Trek‘s most memorable episodes. Written by David Gerrold as a freelance submission to the original series, the script was his first professional sale, and the episode has since become one of those bits of Trek lore that even non-fans recognize.
The episode received a sequel, in the form of the 1973 episode “More Tribbles, More Troubles” from the animated Star Trek series, written by Mr. Gerrold. He also wrote about the creation, production, and enduring impact of the original episode in his own book, The Trouble With Tribbles: The Birth, Sale, and Final Production of One Episode, which also was released in 1973. Future incarnations of Trek would not forget the tribbles, either. In order to celebrate the 30th…

For the first time, the girls are separated, and Bridget uncovers a crushing truth. She must not only confront a web of betrayal and jealousy, but her own mistakes at last.

Interesting Sci-fi World November 26, 2012
By Maranda Russell
Admittedly, I’m not a big sci-fi fan, so I haven’t read much sci-fi other than the classics by H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, but I found this book really interesting and well-written. I found it fairly easy to understand and relate to the world that the author had created, which has been a struggle for me with some sci-fi books in the past. I really liked how the author wove romance (some of it sizzling), humor and conflict into the story to give it a well-rounded feeling. Definitely worth a read!
She gave it 4 out of 5 stars
I’ve always loved to watch people. We all have so very many foibles. We all have strengths and weaknesses, and at points, we all make mistakes. I do all the time, as we know. Characters are all different, yet we insist on thinking that every other soul on the planet thinks pretty much like we do. I’m learning – rapidly – that they really don’t. Everyone has a different agenda. Mine these days is simple. My life has been filled with highs and lows, as has everyone else’s. Quite a few more lows than highs actually, believe it or not. I spent a quite a while being as sour as a lemon, but I got over that. Now when life gets me down, I tell myself that it is MY life, after all. I can do with it what I will. I choose not to be lemonwoman. And this is…

Some days are just downright unproductive. I woke in the wee hours, all bright-eyed and bushy tailed, ready to have at the day. I spent hours trying to do research online, but I just couldn’t seem to find the right words for Google to give me what I wanted. Then I resorted to my bookshelf. Right now I can tell you quite emphatically that I’m really not feeling the joy of “holding a real book in my hands”. They certainly don’t smell warm and inviting either. Just musty and old, and have given me the most epic case of the sneezes ever. Finally, I caved, and spent a fortune on Amazon buying new reference books. At least they have what I’m looking for. Now I’m just not in the mood anymore. The air around my head is blue, and ennui has set in.
I got stuck for at least…
