Melodee’s Back Again!

 

 

Hello, All!

 

Sorry I’ve been away for the last week or so and missed posting a few Two Hundred Word Tuesday and Melodee’s Rules for Authors.

 

To make a long story short, I had to make a (more or less) emergency trip up to the US (Washington, DC) for a seemingly endless string of business meetings. To make the even longer story shorter, the meetings went very well, and I’m now back home in Rio.

 

I’ll be getting back on track with the blogs and other things over the next few days, so be sure to look for my Rules for Authors this coming Friday (25 NOV 2016).

 

Thanks for your patience and understanding!

 

And have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

 

BTW…ever try to find a turkey in Rio de Janeiro? It ain’t all that easy!

 

Keep Loving!

Oh my goodness…

I am a frequent guest at Melodee’s blog and being that she is one of my Siren Publishing sisters, I always enjoy visiting or chatting with her. In my previous posts I’ve discussed everything from chaotic daily life, to finding happily ever after and you would think that somewhere along the lines I found a way to better manage my time and be an efficiency wizard. Oh, but you would be wrong if you thought that. LOL.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have at least 3 internet windows open at once, if not more. Between email, facebook, twitter and writing, there are countless things going through my mind at all times. I shutter to think what a psychologist would think about the goings on inside my head. One minute I’m posting a quote on social networking sites, the next I’m returning an email and the whole time I’m thinking about my work in progress and where the story is going to go next. That doesn’t even count the real world. Oh yes, I know many of us may not believe it’s true, but the real world truly does exist. There are three dimensional people and everything! LOL

If it sounds chaotic, maybe even a little bit crazy, then you’re right. It is, but in a way I think many authors are exactly the same way. A million thoughts are running through our minds all at once. Maybe we’re all “crazy like a fox” or “evil geniuses”, I don’t know. I am sure there is an upside to being pulled in 20 different directions all at once. The only thing I can truly come up with is that my life is never boring! I get up and the chaos ensues. Then after a whirlwind day I lie down, close my eyes, telling myself without a doubt that tomorrow I will be the most organized and efficient woman. So much so that I will put Martha Stewart and the Stepford Wives to shame, but alas that doesn’t happen. Murphy’s Law rears its ugly head and before I know it it’s 11:30 and my breakfast is sitting on it’s plate – untouched and cold – just as it was when I put it beside the computer 3 hours ago.
I’m posting this guest blog late, can anyone guess why? If there is any confusion why, please re-read the first paragraphs of this post. LOL. Let’s face it – because I am coming to terms with it – I will never be super organized. I will never be Super Woman and I will never get every task I set out to accomplish done every day. My fiance may have gotten me a cape (do with that what you will…Haha) so I feel like I can accomplish anything, but each day I set out to push myself and give myself more task that even the most organized could get accomplished. It’s not that I can’t get things done, not that I don’t want to. It’s simply that I love what I do so much that I will keep piling tasks on top of my plate even knowing that it will take me awhile to get it done. So, I push myself, I try  harder, strive for perfection, and in the end hope that I eventually get the job done and do a bang up job! Oh, and I also hope to eat my breakfast too. LOL

PLEASE leave me a comment below letting me know I’m not alone. Surely there are others out there who have chaotic lives, right? Guys? Anyone?

And please take a look at my upcoming release, Intimate Seductions which is releasing August 23rd! It’s going to be a HOT one down in Texas!!!

Guest Blogger Lace Daltyn – Screw the Tag Line

Hi, Melodee and everyone. Thanks for letting me come and hang out for the day!

I’m delighted to have the opportunity to showcase my new novella, Forever Men, which recently released. With all the attention that erotic stories are getting these days, I thought I’d dip my toes in the deep end of the pool, so to speak. I got lucky with this first story. These characters made it easy for me to design a setting, put them to work, then let them pound out their differences. Hey, I didn’t mean it like THAT!  (Well, maybe I did just a little.)

Have you figured out yet that there’s a construction theme to my story? J I had a lot of fun writing this story, but had the worst time coming up with a tag line for it. That’s not entirely true. I came up with one pretty quickly, but it didn’t fit the mood of the story. Forever Men has some funny moments in it, but it’s a serious look at relationships. So I needed a serious tag line, and came up with:

Walls crumble when you build a forever love.

Not bad, right? It sets a good tone for the novella and is a good intro for the blurb. There’s just one problem. I can’t get the first tag line out of my head. So I thought it would be fun to blog about it and this seemed like a great place to do that.

You remember that construction theme, right? And that this is an erotic novella? The original tag line I came up with was…drum roll, please:

Building a forever love, one screw at a time.

🙂 What do you think? Should I have used the funny one or the serious one?

Here’s the specs on Forever Men

 Blurb:

Walls crumble when you build a forever love.

As a couple, the deep, sensual connection between Desi and Alec is imaginative and limitless, even though Desi’s fear that love is transient keeps her from telling her man how she feels. Fun-loving Alec, who lost his parents in a tragic accident, has found that kind of forever love again. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep it, including giving Desi the one thing he lacks—a partner with a serious side.

With their fledgling construction company headed for the skids if they don’t finish the job on time, Desi and Alec are frantic to catch up. Enter Alec’s friend, Matt, a man haunted by the “dull and unimaginative” label his ex-fiancé pinned on him.

Working side by side, a thirst grows that seems unquenchable and each must come to terms with old hurts in order to consider possibilities never before imagined.

Excerpt:

Desi glanced down to the empty dirt yard. Where the hell was Alec, anyhow? She’d sent him to pick up materials two hours ago.

Right on cue, a black truck raced up the treed lane and squirreled to a stop in front of the house, sending a dust cloud skyward.

About time.

When Alec jumped out and grinned up at her, Desi’s irritation started to fade.

He bounded up the stairs, brushing his shaggy blond hair back as he joined her and wrapped tanned arms around her waist.

“Hey, Gorgeous.”

When his eyes brimmed with amusement, as they did now, Desi found it hard to stay annoyed with him. She tried, pushing against him. “I’m mad at you.”

Alec threw his head back and laughed. “You can never stay mad at me.”

The smile she tried to hide refused to cooperate. Staying mad at Alec was just too damn hard. Everything about him was designed to make the world seem perfect, from his construction-hardened body to the almost constant gleam in his eyes. When Alec was near, it was easy to believe The Dream. Desi sobered as she looked around. Things were a far sight from all right at the moment.

“We’re so far behind, Alec.”

“Trust me,” he said. “We’ll be fine.”

“I don’t know…” Desi chewed her lower lip. Alec always saw the bright side of things, sometimes to the exclusion of the issues they needed to solve.

Alec took the hammer out of her hand and let it drop to the plywood sub-floor. “It sounds like you need a distraction.”

The flash of his dark eyes as they inspected her from toe to head started a familiar fire deep in her belly. “Oh-h-h, no,” she stuttered. Desi backed up until a two-by-four, part of the wall frame, stopped her. “No way, Alec. We’ve got no time for that.”

Together over a year now, she still couldn’t get enough of him. When he turned on the charm, like now, the man was irresistible. But they couldn’t. Not now. Not today.

The look in his eyes crumbled her resolve further. He stepped closer, and heat, both familiar and delicious, spread between her legs.

“We can’t, Alec. We’re so far behind schedule.”

“What’s a few more minutes, then?” He leaned in, his lips grazing her neck, strumming an already taut thread of need.

Arousal swept away the last vestiges of hesitation, and Desi wound her hands into Alec’s hair. “Work can wait.”

Here’s to Happily Ever After in today’s crazy world…

Nearly one month ago I was a guest here on Melodee’s blog and wrote about chaos mixing with creativity. The basis of the post was trying to find a way to hurdle over those obstacles life throws at you every day when we are trying to get a laundry list of tasks done on a daily basis.You would think that in the past month things would have slowed down, at least a little. However, that just wouldn’t be the way Murphy – the evil law maker – would have it. LOL. Luckily since my last post I have been fortunate to experience something wonderful! So, while it’s made my schedule even more hectic and chaotic, I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Drum roll, please…

July was filled with more than 4th of July fireworks for me…I GOT ENGAGED! To a very wonderful man – might I say – who’s been in my life for quite sometime. He did the whole kit and kaboodle too. He got down on one knee, said the most wonderful things and even made the ladies at the table next to us cry. It was absolutely perfect and I feel so lucky to have a real life prince charming to come in and sweep me off my feet. As romance writers we all write about happily ever after. Our heroines always get their man in the end. Isn’t that what we all want after all? That perfect someone to make everything worth while?

If you have already found your soul mate, hang on tight and don’t let go. Love is a precious commodity that too many take for granted in this day and age. And for those of you still looking, you will find it! If this adventure of falling in love with Mr. Right has taught me anything, it’s that there is someone out there who is the perfect fit for each and every one of us.

My days are still hectic and there are still countless things to do which I can never seem to get through, but at the end of the day I have someone encouraging me through the chaos, someone who makes sense of the craziness and makes it that much easier to grin and bear those mountains we must climb. So, open your hearts and let love find you!

Thanks for having me as a guest, Melodee. I had a fantastic time sharing my news! For those wishing to be just a little bit Impetuous, please follow the link below and read about my newest release with Silver Publishing!

Happy Reading everyone!!
