The Girl Next Door Updated

Greetings!

Many of you have downloaded and read, The Girl NextDoor.  I know, it has some parts that make you cry, but those are happy tears, yes?  Good stories should evoke emotions as well as entertain.  If Hallmark ever did movies with same-sex lovers, this would be one hell of a movie!

If I told the absolute truth, which I always try to do, some parts of this book still cause tears to mess up my vision, my nose to run, and my cheeks to become damp.  And I wrote the story!

The Girl Nextdoor is a rags to riches tale, which is uplifting in many ways.  It is also slightly naughty so Hallmark would probably have to delete some of that, which would be a shame.

I love the story, and telling about the struggles with Anorexia in a story format is unique, thanks for pointing that out.  Yes, it is a lesfic, and I am unapologetic about that.  When you understand that the differences between the male and female are not that great, then you can get into the story.  I happen to believe that love is magnificent wherever you find it.  As long as love is not used as a weapon, to me, it is excellent and worthy of a story.

Since many of you have offered some feedback on the story, I went back and fixed some typo’s, and I embellished the story a little here and there. The more that I write and edit my own work, the better I become.  I have this love-hate relationship with Grammarly but if you take the time to learn why it doesn’t like this or that, soon your writing will improve, grammatically speaking.

If you want to re-download The Girl Nextdoor, I think you can from Amazon without cost since you already bought it once. The modifications that I made did not change the story, I just embellished some small portions.  Wordsmithing this paragraph or that is what we writers do.  Much like we artist do when we look at a painting we did years ago.  We want to touch it up.

Thanks for your patronage and your support!  I recently released Ghost Signal from Colorado Springs which is a super fun sci-fi that I know you will like.  There is lots of science and love and romance. This could be a movie for regular TV.  Ghost Signal of Colorado Springs is actually YA!  I know, I can write things that kids can read…LOL  Lets face it, naughty is fun to write and read but this book is well worth your time, and it is so reasonable in price.  $2.99 for damned near 90 thousand words of adventure!

Here is the new teaser for The Girl NextDoor..

 

Sally’s life was about to change as it was past time for a new  “Adventure.” Magic from Scotland would play into this adventure as the Pixies were good at guiding the humans. It was after all their job.  In this rags, to riches story, Sally Spent much time alone entertaining herself by mimicking the musicians on TV never dreaming that she would use those talents for her next big adventure.

Finding love in an unusual place for a girl from South Carolina, Sally had no idea that the Pixies were involved. Guiding her and her future friends in a fantastic adventure that included romance, and music while dealing with health issues, created a bond that would withstand the test of time.

The Girl Next Door is an adult read. Thanks so much for your patronage and your support!  -TW

Here are just a few of my novels

Spend a few hours with me..

voices

Voices from the Past is a fun read if you like hot steamy romance and magic.

After a failed marriage, Jennifer leaves the UK escaping to the US.  Unaware that her actions were guided by other forces of the magical variety, she bumps into a cowboy. Magic plays a huge role in this fun-filled trek through the hearts and minds of witches both young and old.  Love is the common denominator making this an adult read.

nextdoor

A bit of a savant at school, Sally is also talented when it comes to music and performing but she is unaware of this talent.  The pixies provide the mechanism for her next great adventure as she leaves the States to visit Scotland with a new friend.

Sally discovers more than her talent in this magical place. Love comes in all shapes and sizes.  The Girl Nextdoor is a rags to riches kind of tale and is also an adult read which will warm your heart. The story should also dampen your eyes with happy tears as TW does not believe in sad endings.

perpetual

the kiss b - Copy

The Kiss is a free book on Smashwords only.  This story is an introduction to the characters in Cyber Subs.  Cyber Subs includes The Kiss, “a better version of it.” This book sells quite well for a very affordable $3.99 US.  With over 2500 hits every day I expect it to go viral before long.

Cyber

Two young ladies from rural Kansas use their talents to make it big in the world of cam shows and cyber prostitution. When the consortium discovers them, they make a deal with them until the consortium tries to extort them as sex slaves, while deceiving them throughout the process. Trisha, not the dumb blond they take her for, has other plans. Explore their world in this enjoyable read while challenging your understanding of the world that you live in.

Cyber Subs is a feel good, heartwarming, “titillating” tale with plenty of love and passion pushing the boundaries of morality.

The title comes from the domain of technology and the realm of BDSM. While this is not a dark novel, it is a romance of a different kind, stretching the rules of society and breaking the molds that we all find ourselves in.

This book is an adult read with plenty of plot, mystery, and love to go with some naughtiness.

starduster mod 2 - Copy

The saga of the Starduster has been such a fun book to write and read again and again.

  • If you could go back to your third-grade class with the knowledge, you have now, would you do anything differently?
  • If an Alien race were to abduct you, would you go peacefully? Once there, would you trust them to examine you medically?
  • What if you found that you were among a race of nudists, would you adopt their lifestyle?

Don is hijacked off of the ISS by such a race who has no emotions. Discovering that he has cancer, he allows their doctor to treat him when things go wrong. Using a neural link, Sarah, their physician falls in love with the human. This is their story.

The one public review the book has on Amazon was from someone who said there was no sex in the book.  Hmmm, she has a machine that turns them into nymphomaniacs!  They end up on a world that turns them all into sex fiends.

I would never flame another author.  If I found serious flaws I would contact them and try to assist them. We authors are not in competition, and I will assist other authors, and have.

Please read the book and decide for yourself.

This book is still selling well so I am guessing that my readers see past this type of thing.  If you have read it, please consider doing a review for me.  If like this person you are compelled to flame me, or it, do me the courtesy of contacting me.  Nothing is written in stone, I fix things constantly.  Feedback is valuable to all authors.

Diamond Joe is a must read!

Suggestive antics to inspire Dane’s creativity, have unintended consequences. Dane one of her students on a football scholarship thinks that he has a thing for her.

Donna being rather lonely ponders the fantasy. Busting his bubble, the professor, a wealthy widow, hires a horse trainer from Dane’s hometown which she learns of while tutoring Dane.

Inviting Samantha to come to South Carolina to train her horse does not go as planned. Sam has many secrets which start to become apparent almost immediately. Hidden behind the books, and blackboards, and a previous marriage, Donna discovers another side of herself that to date, was unknown to her.

Working with Donna’s racehorse, Diamond Joe, Samantha and Donna become inseparable. Deciding to marry in a public way touches off a firestorm at her university, igniting strong feelings from both sides of the debate on same-sex marriage.

Racing Diamond Joe becomes Donna’s and Sam’s primary focus while dealing with the fallout from their marriage. Enjoying a winning streak, a competitor takes it upon himself to remove Diamond Joe from contention through alternative and illegal means.

Love, passion, and horse racing combined with issues of the day makes this novel a page-turner. If you are an animal lover, a person of passion, or just someone who enjoys a good story, this novel is for you.  Yes, it is FF, possibly YA.  You tell me.

Your emotions will be tugged at I promise you!

These are just a few of the twenty-five novels published thus far.  If you should find yourself needing something to read, please take a look.  Some of my books are Free on Kindle Unlimited!

All of the artwork is created by me.  I would love feedback on it if you are so inclined.

Is The American way of life under attack? Is yours?

 

I despise politics and politicians.  I loathe them all.  Why?

When they spend millions of their own dollars to go after a job that pays a $100k a year in Washington DC one has to question their sanity.  Who does that and more importantly why?  Who can trust anything that they say?

I am also not a fan of the Puritan leftovers from the founding fathers.  Puritans are not flexible, much like some of these protestors who will quite literally beat you to death with their signs, indicating that they are all about love.

The far left’s agenda is indefensible, period.  That is why there is shouting and anger because it would fail logic and common sense. Anger and personal attacks are all they have, which is just stupid.

Our Ten Commandments were under attack as was Christmas.  “Happy Holidays!”  Yeah, bullshit!

If you are a Christian, I respect your view and wish you a Merry Christmas!  I think they call that tolerance. If you tell someone Merry Christmas they too should be tolerant, even if they don’t celebrate it.  If I am told to have a nice Kwanzaa, I think I would take that as a compliment and a sign tolerance.

If you believe the 23 and me stuff we may all be from Africa so possibly a Kwanzaa celebration might not be that far-fetched.

We have people wanting to change their sex.  How about race?  Wouldn’t it be interesting to change your race for the last half of your life?  Would you?  If so, which race would you pick?  Why?

I love Neil Diamond and I loved the Jazz Singer.  Early in the movie, he entertains in an all-black club. He has in fact disguised himself as a black man and the audience loved him.  Raising his hands to get everyone to clap along, the palms of his hands were still white.  Oooops!

After the riot and subsequent arrest, Jesse finds himself being bailed out of jail by his father, the cantor.  He looks at him with the black makeup on and says the best line in the whole damned movie!

“Isn’t it tough enough being a Jew!” You would really need to see it for yourself to appreciate that line as much as I did.

I don’t want to beat this subject to death, we are not all racist.  For some reason which escapes me, it would seem that the last eight years have set race relations back to the Rosa Parks Era.

I grew up with friends of all races and we got along fine.  I went to their houses they came to mine, and I lived in Dallas!  I enjoyed learning about their cultures and why they did or do things like they do, such as lighting a menorah.

I was happy Obama won.  I thought it would be great, as now we could finish bringing the races together.  It was white people that voted for him as well as Hispanics and blacks and others.  We soon learned that if you disagree with him, no matter what, you are a racist. Again Bullshit!

America was built on values and mores and I get that.  They came from England and they are ingrained in our society.  We get to practice freedom of religion and that can mean freedom from religion too. Whether you believe in a divine almighty God, or think Darwin was a great guy and smart, that is your call.

When we talk about DC and those cretins who think they know better than you or I how we should run our lives, I have a problem with that.

Our privacy is under attack not only in the digital world but with our healthcare.  Your medical records are supposedly sacrosanct but guess what, that is smoke and mirrors.

Satellites with powerful optics can most probably see what you are reading if you happen to be laying out in your back yard with a book. Google has a record of everything that you ever searched for or read, they might very easily have a copy of everything on your hard drive.

If you pull up task manager and go to the network setting and actually look at how many different IP addresses that your computer is communicating with, it would amaze you.

There is a free packet analyzer called Wire Shark.  Anyone that is tech savvy will be amazed at the information going from their computer in those tiny little datagrams. When you trace the addresses, they are all over the world.  Most of them belong to Microsoft.  What is Microsoft gathering from your computer?

Do we have any reasonable expectation of privacy?

When you go through the airport, your nude frame is examined by god knows who.  Does that bother you?

We don’t need more laws; we need less.

A local city here has instituted a law banning the use of handheld communication devices within the city limits.  It is a college town.  Several colleges, as a matter of fact, reside there.  The fine is up to $500.

Who is the largest segment of the population that use cell phones and drive?  If you said college age kids that would be a good guess. It seems to me that might be profiling but who am I to speculate such a thing.

I said years ago to simply make the apps unusable when the car was in motion.

“TW, that is not fair, what about the passengers?”

I eat out a lot; I happen to be a foodie.  I wish I could cook better than I do but hell, you can’t be good at everything, can you?…  That was a joke; you can laugh.

Eating out as much as I do I see this, and I know that you do as well, everyone at just about every table is doing what?  Come on you got this…. Effing with some damned device or posting a picture of their food on Facebook.  We are addicted to those stupid smart phones.  (like the oxymoron?)

Back to the car issue, here is a thought, how about carrying on a conversation with the driver?  How about learning to communicate in sentences that are longer than 140 characters, complete with inflections?  While you’re at it how about saying “Thank you, Mom, thanks for taking your time to take me here or there, I love you!”

Are we under attack?

I think technology is getting the better of us.  With hundreds of cable channels and some really lame programming to fill those hundreds of channels with mind numbing crap, yes I think humans are under attack.  Brainwashed by lies, that if said often enough will be accepted as truths, even though they are indeed fabrications by those with an agenda.

These smart phones captivate our attention.  Even when we are at the dining table as a family, the smart phone is there, and text is scrolling across the screen as your son or daughter tells you, I can do two things at one time.  They offer that as an excuse for his or her bad manners.  It is your fault by the way.

We Americans live in one of the greatest countries on the face of the earth!  Sorry you others, I am somewhat biased. Still love you, I am addressing Americans with this paragraph.

As we march forward, like some grand crusade against the past to remove statues that depict our history, we are actually going backward.  Third world countries do that shit, not America!

History is replete with stupid things that we should know about, so we don’t repeat them.  If we don’t learn about them, we will most certainly have to repeat them once again to learn from them.  Is that what you want?   Do you really want another Stalin or Hitler?

A young college graduate was voting for Bernie.  She was pontificating to me about how great he was!

I asked her to tell me what Socialism was.  She could not.  She pulled out her smart phone while I waited and then after a few minutes she thoughtfully said to me, Not that part of it ,we just want the good parts of socialism!

She has a student loan that is crushing her, working a job as a security guard making less than $15 an hour and cannot find a decent job.

By the way, for those of you who may agree with her, there are no good parts to socialism!  Many voted for Bernie who might have run against Trump had Hillary not cheated him.  Those are facts, by the way, you are not triggered, are you?

We need a twelve step program for technology. 

Just possibly the Amish could assist us here.  This is a business idea that they will never see because they don’t have the technology. But here it is anyway.

In the day there were things called dude ranches.  A city person could go out there and pay money to learn to a be a cowboy or cowgirl.  That was a niche market that worked for many.

What if the Amish created an environment where they welcomed our poor, our wretched, our ignorant progeny, who only know how to communicate through text; and they embraced them.  They showed them the Amish way of life, and that would include farming, and building things as they do.  We have a national resource that might be the answer to our future, and we might find it in their culture.  Can you imagine yourself or your kids being deprived of their technology, and cable for a few weeks, or hell even an hour!

Would you go?

Would you send your kids?

I don’t think they would do it because it would pollute the minds of their culture, which is a culture within a culture.    Who knows, maybe they each have a thousand dollar iPhone sticking out of their back pocket too.  Those buggies go pretty slow, so texting on those would probably be ok, the horse is leading it, right?

To know where you are going you must know where you have been.  History is the key, and it should not be rewritten to suit the special interests groups, or the mobs.

My thoughts are for your consumption and are a way to share with you the readers of my blog.  If you agree or disagree, tell me so, and why!

Remember, I want to know why.  More importantly, my friends, you want to know why?  Once you know why, you are one step closer to enlightenment.

While you’re at it go read some of my books, would you?  I cover so many different genres, from LGBTQ to Science fiction.  I am even going to write a children’s book.   With 25 novels out there on Amazon and Smashwords, you should find something that interests you.  Some are on Kindle unlimited so that you can read those for free!

Thanks for following me, and sharing my thoughts with your friends!

Wherever you find love you should hang on to it!

Perpetual Palpitation 

As I stated in an earlier blog, I have tried my hand at a few stories with adult content.

The reasons are many but suffice it to say, I enjoy books with a story, a plot and hopefully an unpredictable trope or two.

I recently noticed an uptick in sales of Perpetual Palpitation.

If you have read this book, Thanks so much!

Perpetual Palpitation or forever and heartbeats   One could and should interpret this to Love Always.

After a brutal divorce, instigated by his wife of many years, Ben decided he must change his course in life.  Spending his early years starting and building a mega-business, he had no time for himself and certainly no time for his young family.  Not even aware that his daughter was not really his, Ben buries himself in his work until one day he is served with divorce papers.

Selling the company per the divorce decree, Ben takes his half of their fortune, packs his car with some clothes and his laptop; and leaves California in his rearview mirror.  With no destination in mind, he only heads east.

Several days later Ben ends up on Amelia Island; he simply ran out of road away from his past.

Finding a beach house to rent, he pulls out his laptop and seeks to do that which he has always dreamt of, writing a book much like the Sherlock Holmes novels he loved as a young person.

Ideas whirl around in his head as he decides to take in some of the local culture.

Dr. Stein, a world famous heart surgeon, is also part of the culture that Ben runs into in a pub.  She is there because she lost one of her patients to greed and unjust laws.  Fate plays a role as the two become inseparable over time.

Dr. Stein has a dark secret which pushes Ben to the limits of his prudish ways.  Adjusting to who they are together, Ben and Juliet weave the tapestry of modern-day life into a story that will live for the ages.

This novel is an adult novel, but there is much more story than naughtiness.  Taking many out of their comfort zone and adding all sorts of twist and turns into the story, you might not be able to predict where it will end up.

The characters will tell you the story in their words.  My keen wit and sense of humor will hopefully entertain you.

Check out Perpetual Palpitation and let me know what you think.

The cover art is a combination of an oil painting that I did years ago, and some digital magic.
