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

The reasons behind writing “The Girl Next-door”…#anorexia

My recent tweets about all of us starting out life as girls have stirred up some controversy. Sorry, I don’t have an issue with talking about controversial topics.  As soon as we all start speaking and listening, we can then come to an understanding of the facts, and not the half-truths or deliberate lies.

Before we talk about the Girl Next Door, let me just affirm that yes, we all start out life as girls.  Somewhere in the process of being born the chromosomes do their thing.  If you are to be a male something called the “virilization process occurs.” Female parts turn into male parts. Ovaries turn into testicles and vagina’s turn into scrotums.  That line up the middle of the scrotum is a scar from where the labia majora turned into a beautiful little place to house the testicles’ as they must be kept cooler in respect to the internal temperature of the body.  This cooler temperature is necessary to keep the sperm alive.  And yes that little love button explicitly created for pleasure, with twice the nerve endings as a penis, turns into the pride of most men, and a joy to most women.

Wiring in the brain becomes different to accommodate the difference in the sexes although who knows exactly what the anatomical differences are.  In short, Virginia, that is why men have tits!

I weave these facts in the tapestry of several of my novels as the information needs to be out there for the masses in an acceptable format.  As part of a story, people are more amenable to reading about it than if they are just confronted with it.  Are there differences in the sexes?  Yes, besides plumbing and a few small physical changes and, we are hormonally very different.  Those hormones are part and parcel to go along with the procreation process.

You can take the most male of men and with hormone therapy turn them into a crybaby when a sad movie is played.  Conversely, you can take the most feminine of girly girls and cause them to grow a beard, bulk up, and of course alter their personality and mental makeup altogether.  Hormones are critical to who we are and not too much attention is paid to them. Many are treated with psychotropic meds for depression when their doctors should be looking at their hormones!

One of my favorite singers growing up died of complications due to Anorexia.  That is what caused me to dive into anorexia, to begin with.  Later I had a friend pass because of this disease. Since then I have known many who have dealt with it.  While I often forget to eat, I don’t look in the mirror and see a fat person when the opposite is true.  I just am missing whatever trigger one has, that tells them to eat.  Lightheadedness is usually my cue to eat.

The Girl Next Door is a rags to riches story of a young woman who has had a pretty messed up childhood.  She is gorgeous and anecdotally should have a trail of broken hearts attached to her resume.

Her mother dies in an accident leaving just her and her father, who is bereft of the ability to assist her.  She works through her issues by focusing on school, until her last week when the pixies intervene.  It is time for her to discover herself and prepare for an adventure of a lifetime.

The Girl-Next-Door is a heartwarming tale of love and adventure as our characters travel to Scotland.   There she meets destiny head-on in a small pub on the coast.

The feedback thus far has been great.

In talking with people all over the country, I have learned that anorexia is more prevalent than even what I thought it was.  Some of you who follow me here on WordPress are dealing with this.  I would love to know your story.  I would also really appreciate your thoughts on The Girl Next Door.  I have tried to deal with this in a story format, that is fun.  Try putting the serious subject matter of anorexia in a fun, sexy romp, that not only deals with medical issues but gay issues as well. I dare you!

That is why this blog is juxtaposed with two complex subjects.  If you have read my blogs, tweets or even my books, you know that I genuinely care about people.  People from all walks of life, not just the well to do people.

When you figure out that we are all granted so many heartbeats, and that money or otherworldly things will not make a difference in the end, then you can move forward. Bill Gates, is no more special than you or I.  He has more worldly resources perhaps, but he has no more time on this earth than the next person.  There are no expiration dates stamped on your foot or mine.  When the bell tolls, we will know it.  Until then, seize the day!

If you like my blog, please follow me and tell others about me.  There are lots of good things here that others could benefit from if they knew about it.  While my end game is to sell books and promote my brand, a significant reason for this blog is to get to know you, the people who follow me.  You guys make it worth it.  I love reading what you write.

Through my website at www.authortwscott.com, I get lots of e-mails, and I am fine with that.  Comments here are good too.  Follow me on Twitter @authortwscott or @TWSCOTT823 and help spread the word.  I started the marketing process way too late.  I had written over twenty novels before I got serious about marketing.  Foolishly, I thought Agents would just come flocking by the droves, and I would have to beat them off with a club.

Nope.  While I do much better than many independent authors on sales, I still have a day job too!

My goal is to Quite the Day job and write full time.

Comments or suggestions are always appreciated.  Some of the feedback I get is about typos, and those are very much appreciated too. Even in my tweets, I see some of the silliest typos.  I cannot afford to pay some editor some ridiculous amount of money to watch for dangling participles. The same is true of hiring an artist to do my cover art.  I have done it as best I can with the time and skills allotted to me.  That is why the feedback is so excellent. One can read a sentence a hundred times, and miss the “you” instead of the “your” every time!

That is also why I have books on Kindle Unlimited. Many will read something for free and with luck, will spend a minute to tell me what they think.

Thanks for the follows, tweets and retweets!  If you are one of the many who are reading my books, Thank You so much!  It truly means a lot to me that you went out and purchased one of my novels or even read some of the free ones on Kindle Unlimited.

Much Love!  -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

In the Girl Nextdoor Sally discovers that life is about more than getting good grades. 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

Perpetual Palpitation was so much fun to create.  Ben, a businessman finds out that he while successful at building business’s, his home life is horrible.  Divorce drives Ben out of his home in LA and causes the sale of his business.

Heading east until the road runs out, he finds Dr. J Stein. Dr. Stein, the towns cardiologist has just lost a patient and is at the local pub when the two meet.  The vulnerable couple soon becomes an item.  After a marriage in Vegas, Ben discovers that Juliet has a darker side and she is insistent that he is part of it.

To what lengths will Ben go to please the new love of his life?  This too is an adult read as TW pushes the boundaries in this fun-filled adventure complete with warmth and charm.

Dragon Master

Dragon Master and the Witch is such a fun book.  The Queen’s daughter is kidnapped by an evil sorcerer taken through time, left as bait for her betrothed to find.  Her husband to be is a Dragon Master.  The only way for the sorcerer to control his dragons is to kill him.

The Queens daughter begins to assemble a coven in modern times while keeping her magic and identity under wraps from the people of Salem Massachusetts, where the sorcerer left her.

The story is complete with love and laughter and action.  Breaking TW’s normal style, this is YA.

trilogy1 twitter

The Madam and the Queen is the first in a series of books known as the Ailani Series.

Tina, a divorced woman in her mid-thirties has become somewhat of a shrew.  Her friends at work convince her to get out of her house and live a little.

Bud Grayson inherited his parent’s company after they were mysteriously killed while on Safari.  The young billionaire finds that he is haunted by strange dreams while he runs the company turning into somewhat of a bully.

Tina and Bud meet as fate plays into the story making this an incredibly fun read.  Tina discovers her sexuality with not only Bud but with his housekeeper.

Magic and fantasy juxtaposed with love and romance make this read one that is hard to put down.  Book one and two are out, with Book three to be released this winter 2017!  This series MA.

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.

Devil or Angel

Spooky stuff

 

 

After eating lunch today, I am sitting in traffic. In front of me is a smaller car with two images of Betty Boop on either side of their rear plate.

One of the images is a Betty Boop Devil and one a Betty Boop Angel.

I have always liked Betty Boop, and I suppose many of you have no idea what a Betty Boop is.

Here is the part that leaves me wondering…

I had this urge to turn on the satellite radio.

Switching from my regular channel, I turned it to the fifties station and would you care to guess the very next song that played????

The Clovers and…Wait for it… Devil or Angel…..

I kid you not!

Some will say it is a coincident and maybe it is but…. This kind of thing happens to me all of the time.

Anyway, I have work to do… Just wanted to drop in for a moment and tell you about my day thus far.

Dragon Master and the Witch

Yeah!  It is finished!

This story took longer than anticipated.  Six weeks give or take with several edits to get it right.

A week of that time I was traveling so, I guess 5 weeks to write a book.  I like to wrap one up in a month.

During the late 1200’s Blaise, the Dragon master is banished to the top of Mount Sherman by the Queen for a disagreement that the Queen and his father got into.

Blaise took the time to train his dragons and learn from his father.  After his father dies, Blaise becomes the Dragon Master.

Sarah and Blaise were set to be married until the falling out.  She would often sneak out of the castle to meet up with Blaise until one day she was captured by another who sought to control the dragons.

Removing her from the dark ages of England to 2017 in the United States, Sarah hardly fit in.  Unaware of where she was or what the place was famous for, the portal through which they traveled had its own plan, taking them near Salem Massachusetts.

Blake, the Son of the evil sorcerer, was in love with the Queen ’s other daughter; Katherine. When Blakes mother died suddenly, Zolof placed the blame on the villagers.  The anger that ensued was all that Zolof needed to turn the heart of his son dark; thus controlling him to do his bidding with a spell.

While Sarah attempts to put together a Coven of 13 in 2017, Zolof needs to lure Blaise through the portal where his powers would be useless allowing Zolof the opportunity to kill him.  Once Blaise dies, Zolof would inherit the loyalty of the dragons giving him all the power he would need to bring the world to its knees.

What we have here is a love story in the classic sense.  We have a fairy tale where my sense of humor and wit come through in my characters.

The artwork is a combination of a painting I did years ago and some digital art to make a rather impressive cover.

This is my 25th Novel, and I believe a milestone.

Currently, my work is selling around the globe on more servers than I can count.  I have to trust that I am being paid for my work but truthfully, I have seen my works pirated on sites that I do not even have a clue of what the language is.  If it is good enough to pirate, I guess I should take it as a compliment.

Amazon should release this book in a day or so.  I published it on Smashwords too.  Smashwords, while a pain to publish on, does send it to many different sites including B&N, Apple, and too many others to mention.

Once a month I get royalties from them via PayPal, so there are good things about them as well.

The link for Smashwords I will put here, so you can get your copy and tell me what you think!

We, independent Authors, appreciate you the readers of our work.

We don’t have multi-million dollar publishing companies hyping our Books.  We, the independent must write it, edit it, create the art work and market it! To get it in your hands, Amazon and other companies like them provide a website to sell it on and take as much, if not more than an agent would charge.

Agents provide the technical services as well as the marketing! Agents hire editors who not only look for typos but know how to guide the author in ways that would make the story more palatable.

Dangling participles aside, a good editor is hard to find.  Many on Twitter will offer their services, but I must tell you the truth of this.  An independent writer cannot afford $10 a page.

The hard truth is that most “independent writers” will think their work is great and be willing to spend the money betting on the ROI. The facts are that few will make over $10 in royalties in their first year.  If that hurts, I am truly sorry but it is the bitter truth.  Don’t write for pecuniary interests. Don’t play the lottery for a retirement strategy. Keep your day job!

Another service people offer is cover art design.

And still another is marketing, and the list goes on.

The only folks who make money in this business are those who provide some sort of service, with no guarantees.

That is why readers like yourself are so important for the independent author.

Folks, we need you!  I support independent authors, and I know most of you do as well.

With 25 novels selling around the globe, one day you will be able to say, “you knew me when!”

“Yes, I have made much more than $10…”  The truth of it is that I would do it all over again if I were to only make $10.  I love what I write so at the very least, there are 25 novels out there with the Brand TWScott that people are enjoying. That means something.

You can contact me here, or on my website at www.authortwscott.com.

Follow me on Twitter @authortwscott or @twscott823

Buy my books.  Not one of them cost more than a cup of fancy coffee!

Many are on Amazon Kindle Unlimited so you can read them for free!

Those that have read my novels to date; tell me that they like them; so I am on to something. Some of the feedback on Cyber Subs had me go back and change much of it.

I am always looking for an idea for the next novel.

I wrote a story about a couple of young ladies who do web cam shows for money.  Tonight on the news I learned about a young mother who poses nude on Instagram making about $5K a month.  If you like a little titillation, read that book called Cyber Subs!

The interesting thing about this woman is she is no model.  She is a mother and married to someone in the military who takes the photos of her.  One of my themes in many of my books is about loving who you are.  I would not mind interviewing her as I think that might make a story too.

Thanks for the purchases of my books!

Thanks for the follows and retweets!

If you are an agent or know of one that is not too proud to support an independent author such as myself; I could use the help!

I am a writer; that is what I do.

Marketing, I would rather leave to the professionals.

I spent years working in an advertising agency, and I would still rather write, than market.

Voices From the Past

Was it fate or magic that put the two on a collision course.

Married to a mommas boy, Jennifer decides she has had enough.  Twenty odd years of putting up with supporting her husband, and now his mother was too far.  Just wanting to go away for a few days without his mother tagging along; was a non-starter.

After the final argument, she leaves the house.  Filing for divorce, She soon finds her way to the States as a correspondent for her magazine.  Leaving the editing desk, she was now on an adventure.  Covering the Texas state fair; she bumps into a cowboy spilling his beer.  Harold bit his tongue wanting to take the mousy haired Brit to task when she smiled at him disarming him as she began to speak.

Was it fate or magic that put the two on a collision course.

Voices from the Past is a story about magic, romance, and love but not what you might expect.

Old meets new in this modern day tale of witchcraft, magic, and love.

Voices from the Past has been a good seller thus far, tell me what you think.

Hole In time

Just when you think you have it figured out, physics changes.

Sitting next to folks at lunch or the local Starbucks I noticed that many of you read.

Carving out a slice of time from your hectic day to take a small mental vacation, I came up with this series for you Sci-Fi buffs

Episode 1 through 9 are on Amazon Kindle Unlimited meaning you can probably read them for free.

The Pilot episode is on your standard Amazon, Apple, Barns and Nobles and so on.  Since it is the pilot and pulls the story together, for marketing sake, it needed to be widely distributed.

The series took about six months or so to create, the feedback has been awesome and the readership rather robust.   If you are one of them, Thanks so much!

Ben and his crew of the Brooking haul cargo from one stop to another while traversing the galaxy. After picking up some rare mineral on Treglia, a planet in the outer reaches of the universe, things take unpredictable twist and turns.

We meet earth’s early ancestors as well as ancient Martians as we float through each episode.

Ben finds himself the last human male alive on a ship full of women.  Does the race die off or does Ben and his crew think outside the box?

These are all lunchtime reads so let me know what you think!

The artwork was created on an IPad Pro, with different art software currently available on Itunes.
The story is a product of an overactive imagination always asking “what if” and Red Bull!

While there, check out my other novels.  Currently, I am working on a novel with Dragons, Witches, Shamans, Pirates, and Sirens  …
