SINGING at the TOP OF YOUR LUNGS because it’s fun

For how much I love music, I never really talk about it on here. That changes today.

Valentines design - Locked Heart in chains. Love concept Illustration with heart hanging on chains with keyhole and vintahe key on wooden background.The first time I heard this song I didn’t like it. By the second time, it had already grown on me. Now I can’t listen to the damn song without belting out Meghan Trainor’s part at the top of my lungs. I just can’t. Is it just me? Yeah? Okay, just checking. ;)


RELEASE BLITZ: Onyx Unleashed by Tanya Vought (Good vs. Evil Series)

release blitz - good vs evil series


by Tanya Vought

When good and evil collide, who will be left standing?

Onyx Unleashed - 3DEden Cross is lonely. If she didn’t have her beloved cat, Onyx, she’d have no one at all. Eden longs for companionship, but, being a prisoner, all she gets is foul-mouthed demons, and hatred from the one man she wants respect from the most.

Collier Brigham is son of the King of Demons. Bitter with hatred, like his father, he’s expected to be a force to be reckoned with. He never believed love would rear its ugly head in his favor. Especially not when the woman is the daughter of the man who is to blame for the deaths of his mother and brother.

She is a beautiful force of nature and he is misery personified. When secrets are revealed, can they see past the unthinkable and work together to right their wrongs?

Collier exits the shower, grabs a towel off the small rack and smiles, assuming it’s Eden’s as well. Just as he’s about to dry himself off, he hears a noise behind him. He turns around to find Eden licking her lips at his body. She’s eye fucking him and it drives him insane.

“Eden, like what you see?” He grabs his girth in front of her, enjoying her eyes as he tantalizes her.

But this is not the time for this. He’s vowed to make himself a new man—to be the one she wants—the one to make her laugh and be carefree, like she is with Drew.

One thought of Drew and he turns his back on her and dries off. “Please give me a minute to myself. Leave the bathroom, now.”

He hates having seen the confusion all over Eden’s face. Anger is definitely there too.

“You know what, Collier? I’m tired of the bullshit and all you stupid, mercurial men. I’m so freaking tired of it. I stuck up for your sorry ass, but forget it. I’m done.” She slams the door, leaving him alone and confused. Why did she have to stick up for him?

What the hell just happened here?

He dries off the rest of his body with the purple towel, even though he has mostly air-dried. He runs his fingers through his hair, trying to restrain the crazy head of hair of his. He huffs and growls. He feels his skin start to crack… he’s angry. He was rude to Eden after thinking of Drew. He knows he needs to talk with her. He wraps his towel around his waist, since he left his clothes in the other room. He hopes Eden is waiting for him.

Slowly opening the door, Collier finds Eden reading on the bed. He knows she’s seen him but also knows he deserves her stubborn silent treatment. He notices that she’s brought food back, but, well, it’s not quite what he expected. On a white plate with red grapes and banana slices she’s formed the words: Eat Shit Asshole.

He laughs and grumbles. He takes a bite of his food and in the corner of his eye he notices Eden watching him.

“If you’d like a piece of this, you’re more than welcome to some, sweetheart.”

He enjoys watching her squirm on the bed, without making a peep. He also enjoys watching her huff before turning back to her book, which he knows she’s definitely not reading.

777 Writers’ Challenge – Authors: I Dare You to Share Yours

Playing House - TEASERFinlay is very pleased with himself. That grin disgusts me. The man I love is completely taken by the way he hurts me. It’s like a drug that feeds his mental illness, at times when he’s unsure of himself. It’s not healthy for him and it’s life threatening for me. 

“That was good, baby,” he tells me, as if I should agree with him.

I want to drop onto the shabby carpet and beg for him to stop this.


I got to it right away for you. This is my post for the 777 Writers’ Challenge. I’ve shared 7 lines, starting on page 7, at line 7 of my current Work In Progress, Playing House, A Black Widow Novel.

In case you are wondering what was going on up there… (more…)

A Blog Post About Blogging and Becoming an Author

When I first started blogging, while I was writing my debut novel, I was so uncensored. I had very few followers and so I posted to my blog regularly (LIKE THREE TIMES A WEEK, EASILY!) without fretting too hard over grammatical and typographical errors. I didn’t own licences to any stock photography and I didn’t understand how to use the free feature on WordPress to add images, so my posts had very few photos, if any at all. Life was simple. The people who followed me, joined my blog on their own accord, by no request, force or pressure to do so. I knew, if they were following me it was because they actually cared about what I had to say. I didn’t blow time hanging out on Facebook and Twitter (as much), although I did really enjoy Twitter before the auto-bots ruined it over there. I spent time writing my book, learning about publishing, and sharing my results. And you know what? PEOPLE LOVED IT!

Can a man and woman be “just friends”?

After graduating from law school with honours, Edwin Santora, Abigail’s occasional ex and handsome housemate, could get a job anywhere he wants. Of all the places to land, why does he take a position with her small firm? As if sharing a house with her irresistible ex isn’t bad enough, it quickly becomes the least of her concerns. When Edwin’s macho arrogance begins to seriously affect her dating life, Abigail starts to reconsider their friendship; not that Edwin believes a man and woman can be “just friends” anyway.

With Edwin’s swoon-worthy stunts and fierce persistence, Abigail finds herself catching feelings. When Edwin makes a friendly proposal, no-strings-attached, Abigail can’t resist.

After some sexy role playing, she finds herself dangerously in love and wrapped back up in Edwin’s powerful grip. When Abigail risks everything, revealing a treacherous little secret, will their friendship pass the test? Or will they give in to the mysterious forces trying to drive them apart?

Playing House by Christa Simpson (A Black Widow Novel)

Some of you might be wondering what I’ve been working on lately. Let me tell you!

PLAYING HOUSE by Christa Simpson

This book will be quite different from what you’re used to from me. There will be no guarantee of a Happy Ever After, because PLAYING HOUSE (a Black Widow Novel) is not a romance. There are romantic elements, don’t get me wrong, because it is an erotic thriller, but there will also be violence, suspense, and a host of other trigger situations that might cause you pain and dig up old memories and emotions that are better left in hiding. That’s what the Black Widow does. She hurts people any way she knows how.

If you’re willing to face your fears and scare off those inner demons, here’s the blurb.

She’s only playing. He’s playing for keeps.
