Top Ten Tuesday

Today I thought I'd share my favorite non-alcoholic drinks - for lo it has gotten hot and I need to keep hydrated.

Top Ten Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drinks

10. Lemonade - the kind made with fresh lemons, some sugar, water and plenty of ice

9. Tang - made with a far higher powder to water ratio than suggested and lots of ice.
When I was little, we'd go spend a week or two on my grandparents' farm and when all the guys were in the fields bringing in the crops, my grandmother would make up some Tang in the mid-afternoon and I would walk it out to them. I can remember she used to make it in this big honey tin with a handle. And she'd put a lot of ice in it, but of course by the time I got out there, most of the ice would be gone. There was a big ladle in it and instead of any sort of cup, the guys would just dip the ladle in the Tang and drink out of it. That was the only time I would have Tang until I got older and left home. Now, any time I have Tang it brings me right back to my grandparents' farm  during the summer heat.

8. Orange Valencia Refresher - from Starbucks and unfortunately no longer sold. Damn it.

7. Second Cup's White Hot Chocolate with whip - mostly drunk in winter, I love this stuff

6. Lady Grey tea - it's a milder version of Earl Grey and I like it very milky.

5. Apple juice. I like it cold out of the fridge.

4. Milk. 2% is my milk of choice. I love it with grilled cheese sandwiches, desserts, some things just taste better with milk.

3. Canada Dry Gingerale. It's my fizzy drink of choice now that I no longer drink Coke.

2. Water. I prefer Icelandic Glacial bottled water, but Disani is a close second and I have a filter on the fridge. Hell, it's not even bad out of the tap.

1. Coca-Cola - this has been my favorite drink ever since I was little. It was always a treat for me back then. When I moved out, I drank it every day and was quite addicted to it. I could easily drink several cans a day. Sadly, I've had to quit it and as addicted as I was, I can't do just one drink now and then. Just one drink always leads to another. I know because I tried to quit it several times. I finally managed to get it to stick for more than six months. It's been four years this August since I last had one. I still miss it.

Throwback Thursday

Way back in September of 2003, I had an anthology called Bus Stories and Other Tales released. These were some of my first stories published. That anthology is no longer available, but several of the stories from it are currently available as stand alones. Including my newest self-pub release!

PS - I love the groovy cover!

The Bohemians

Topaz is a free-spirit, loving easily, though searching for his true soul-mate. As soon as he meets Quincy, he realizes this is the man who has been calling for him in his dreams and he offers his whole self, body, heart, mind and soul, without thought.

Quincy gives away his heart too easily, and has been hurt in love more than once. Still, that doesn’t stop him from falling head over heels for Topaz when he first meets the man.

It seems like a match made in heaven, but Topaz lives with two men who are his best friends, and also his lovers. Will Quincy ever be able to understand that Topaz has more than enough love in his heart for his best friends and his soul-mate, or will Topaz’s bohemian ways be too much for Quincy to understand?

Originally published in the Bus Stories Anthology and released as a stand alone by a different publisher.

Other books from Bus Stories and Other Tales that are currently available as self-pubs are Bus Stories and Beginning to Believe.

Book Day Wednesday

My latest Shifter Rescue story - Three Uncaged -- is coming this week! Look for it on Friday from Changeling Press! I've put an excerpt here - look for a smutty one on Saturday.

Shifter Rescue: Three Uncaged

Stripe, Xeno and Shen are three cat shifters who have spent most of their lives in cages at a zoo. They're used to hiding their human selves, being abused and feeling hungry. When they are rescued and brought to the Old Tavern, along with the rest of the shifters at the zoo, the three are put in rooms together.

Unsure if they have just traded one cage for another, the three count on each other for comfort and protection. When they find they can share more than just comfort with each other, they very quickly become a collective. Now if only they knew if they were really safe, maybe they could start a new life together.

Stripe snarled as the door opened, throwing light into the room he shared with a panther and a snow leopard. He knew them both from the zoo, though they'd not had a chance to talk either as their animal selves or as human. It was dangerous to be human at the zoo. Hells, it wasn't great being a tiger at the zoo, either.
They weren't there anymore. He didn't know if this place was better or worse than the zoo, and he had no reason to trust. On the positive side, he wasn't alone here. So far, that was the only positive he'd found.

A slender man came through the door and turned on the light, flooding the room with brightness, revealing a kind face. "Easy, boys. Easy. You're safe here at the Old Tavern. I'm sorry for the cramped conditions, but almost that entire zoo was full of shifters, so you can imagine we're running short of accommodations. Hells, we even rescued the full animals -- I've never seen a zoo that wasn't even fit for rats. There's the bed in the corner, and I've got blankets and pillows on the way for nests. I am sorry there isn't more furniture, like chairs and a table, but we will eventually get that sorted. The bathroom has a sink with glasses on the counter if you need water. There's a bathtub and shower stall too. What can I get you guys to eat?"

The guy looked so earnest, but Stripe had to admit that despite that and the kind words, he still wasn't feeling very trusting at the moment. Sure, they had probably just been rescued, but maybe they'd just gone from the frying pan into the fire, you never knew.

The guy took another step in, moving toward the panther and snow leopard, who'd wrapped around each other, and Stripe put himself between them and their so-called rescuer. He wasn't letting anything bad happen to the pretty kits.

He growled softly. Back off. They're under my protection.

"Okay. I hear you. I'll just send meat. As soon as we can, we'll move you all into separate quarters, right?"

He simply growled again. He didn't even know for sure the kits needed his protection, but he was giving it anyway. He found himself feeling quite protective of his new... roommates? Fellow prisoners? Time would tell them what this place really was.

He had to admit that meat sounded good. They hadn't been fed in days at the zoo. Maybe nearly a week. He'd feel better if they had their strength built up before they had to really deal with anyone.

"If you need anything, you press the big red button on the phone here." The man pointed to the phone hanging on the wall next to the door. "Press it and someone will come as quickly as they can."

Stripe tossed his head, letting the man know he understood.

"I'll be back with meat soon."

Stripe tossed his head again. The words sounded like a promise, but he wasn't counting on anything.

The kits stayed together, quiet and still. He simply stared at the man.

"This is a good place." With that, the man bowed and left, leaving the light on as he tugged the door closed.

Stripe stalked slowly around the room, sniffing and looking in every corner. Then he went over to the pretty kitties and sniffed them, too.

They barely responded, both of them skinny and listless. He was beneath his fighting weight too, but not as badly as these two. It made him angry, and he roared, telling them he was pissed off on their behalf.

The snow leopard stood on shaky legs and faced him, roaring weakly. Stripe went up to the poor thing and licked his face. He wasn't a threat to these two. Just the opposite. Every instinct called to him to protect them. And that was what he would do.

As soon as he touched the lovely kit, a sense of pure comfort seemed to pass between them. He let his voice rumble. Hello, and you're safe. I have you. Then he tossed his head, looking over at the beautiful black panther.

Bright green eyes locked on to his, the glow sharp, sure, like the panther was burning alive. Stripe vocalized to this kitty, too. He would take care of them both now that they were out of their cages and all together. These two needed him.

And maybe he needed them, needed to feel necessary.

Movie Monday

Again there were no movies this week, which makes for a not so movie-y Monday.

However, my PVR broke down twice last week (that's three times in two and a half weeks and I'm on my third replacement box - if they made these things right, they'd only have to show up at my place once.)

So once again, I had no shows on tap, so I've been doing some Netflix watching.

Got caught up with iZombie (I had seen all of season 1 and the first third of season 2. I am now all the way up to new episodes). I do love the humor of this show and the way they work her taking on the personality of the brains she eats. Plus, it's a zombie show where the zombies still get to be sexy!

Watched the first season of Wynona Earp. Love this one - I do love it when an action show has a good-sized thread of humor in it. Loved Bobo, love Doc, the Earp sisters, and the Black Badge guy (whose name I keep forgetting!) The local sheriff is a hoot, Waverly's cop girlfriend is hot and very cool. And they even had gay revenants. I am very much looking forward to season 2!

Watched all of what they had of a British crime drama called New Blood. The two main boys are not doing it but so should be. Like really.

I watched the first episode of Paranoid, another British crime drama. This one is slower going, but also interesting. I find myself wanting to know what happens next.

Also watched the first (possibly and second) episode of London Spy. This one is quite weird, but also weirdly fascinating.

And last, but not least, I'm three episodes into Dirk Gently. Talk about bizarre but I love it. Especially the way the holistic detective and holistic assassin's story lines are echoing. I could so do a paper or forty on this show. If I was still in university! Love the humor in this one, too.

So that's what I've been watching lately.

Happy Monday all!

Random Friday

Random Friday is... random

  • How is it Friday again already? I mean seriously. Between writing and edits, this week has zoomed by.
  • got one and a half edits done yesterday. I have another one and a half to do today and I'm expecting another tomorrow.
  • The mosquitoes are bad this year - especially around sunset. I've had more bites in the last few days than I did all last summer O.o
  • I can't believe I haven't updated since last Sunday, but it's been one of those weeks.
  • the weather is now more summerlike. It's still going decent overnight and first thing in the morning, but we're getting up to 30C in the daytime so the hot all the time can't be very far behind. I've enjoyed the more springlike weather while it lasted!
  • I wasn't going to go see Wonder Woman in the theatre, because Batman vs Superman was a waste of time. But I've heard a lot of good things about it and now I might have to go.
  • It's been a while since I've had a wander downtown, so I might need to spend a couple hours this weekend. Just walk and see things - wander.
  • I've been craving something lately. And I haven't got a clue what. Which means I've been eating the house trying to figure it out. Arg. I just hate that.
  • Well, those edits aren't going to do themselves, I should get to work.
  • TGIF!

Sneak Peek Sunday

Today's Sneak Peek is of Seduced by the Tide, officially out on June 26, but already available for pre-oder!

Meet the Beteferoce brothers. Five dragon shifters, each with a strong elemental power. And each with a fierce desire to find his soul mate…  

Deke has yet to meet a man who gives him a rush. Coast Guard rescue has kept the dragon shifter busy, but there's no harder work than finding a mate. Then comes Bryan. Bearded and inked, the personal trainer turned mechanic smells of grease, sweat and red meat. How irresistibly human can you get? And when it comes to hot, slamming sex, they're the perfect fit. Now all Deke has to do is to tell Bryan what he really is, and what he has planned for them.

Bryan has never met anyone like Deke, a consuming lover with a body so arousing it damn near hurts. And he knows how to use every inch of it. Yet he can't shake the feeling that Deke is hiding something. Just not this—the stud he's falling for is a centuries-old dragon who has marked him as a mate.

Bryan has to admit that something inside him is changing. For the first time ever, he's satisfied, body and soul. If Deke really is telling the truth, this could be his destiny—if he's ready to face it.

“Thirty-five. Thirty-six. Come on, man. Push.” Bryan grunted and worked his biceps, sweating like a whore in church as the summer sun poured into the garage. He had to get this workout in before he headed over to his neighbor’s for supper. Shae and his new partner, Jake, were home from another trip, and they were grilling burgers, dogs, maybe a couple steaks.
His stomach growled. He usually preferred lean proteins and vegetables, but right now he could practically taste the steak melting in his mouth. It had to be the increased strength training. Had to be. Or maybe it was that he now equated steak with his best friend, as that seemed to be what they had the most whenever Shae and Jake were in town. Which, sadly, wasn’t that often. Frankly, he missed Shae and cooking out was always a good excuse to get together.
He was trying to decide if he should bother to go shower or not when a beat-up aqua-blue VW bug—the classic kind, not one of those newfangled hipster ones—pulled up in front of Shae’s and the biggest guy he’d ever seen climbed out of the front seat.
Except he’d seen this guy before…
Dark hair, muscles that wouldn’t quit, hell, even air seemed to drool around him.
Ah, yes, the new beau’s brother. Yummy. He’d had a drool fest when the guy had used Shae’s place for a couple of days last year. The guy was built to fantasize about. And Bryan had. This guy had starred in more than one fantasy while he got busy with his hand in the shower.
He could totally tap that. God knew he hadn’t had a good roll in the hay in forever. Since the time he’d fucked Shae, in fact, though he’d never tell his best friend that. Nobody needed to know he was that picky.
He supposed that meant he should go ahead and shower, then. Although some guys appreciated a little sweat on their man.
He rolled up off the weight bench, then grabbed a fifty pounder and started working his biceps, playing out a happy little fantasy involving the big guy and a shower.
He wasn’t a small man himself, but that guy? Shit, that stud could probably throw him around like he was stuffed with cotton. Bryan could almost feel his back slamming up against the tile. Not that he’d ever want something rough like that, but that was why they were called fantasies, right?
The weight in his hand hit the concrete floor, slipping from his fingers while he was distracted, and Jake’s brother paused at the curb and turned, looking in his direction. Looking right at him.
Jesus, those eyes were the brightest blue he’d ever seen. Ever.
A smile quirked the guy’s lips and he turned away, heading up Shae’s walk and going out of view. Bryan could still feel that gaze, though, almost like a touch. That was a hell of a lot of man.
He finished his workout and closed up the garage before he headed inside. Shower. Jack off so he didn’t spring a boner the second he was introduced to Jake’s brother. Nap.
It was a plan. It wasn’t a particularly involved plan, but it was a plan.
