Not My Circus Not My Monkeys!

The news is my kryptonite!

Do you find it more challenging to write as the antagonist?

My latest novel #27 is about the abuses of influential people. Writing as the abuser or holier than thou personality I find very difficult. I am by nature a lover of people, not a person who wants to subdue folks and or kill them.

I admit that I knew I would probably face this difficulty when I started this novel but I did it anyway for this reason. To improve as an author, we must push ourselves. How far can I go? Can I embrace the male ego and find that heartless power hungry bastard that lives in most of us. Would it be easier as the female?   That ego I understand.

I admit that it is a stretch to think in that way. I have said before that your characters must be believable and relatable. If you ever watched house of cards my character right now is that guy. Maybe I should watch it again and try to embrace the power-hungry take no prisoners kind of man he portrayed. Personally, I think his wife in the show was a much better villain that he was.  She was cold and heartless but I liked her!  LOL

Both were the kinds of villains that you love to hate, but yet you want them to succeed.

I honestly am sorry that he got caught up in the MeToo crap. I call it crap because that is what it was and is. Women are going to be damaged by this movement in ways that they cannot begin to fathom. We are allowing a victim mentality to take hold. I got news for you, women are strong and robust and can damn well say no! I don’t understand this “Don’t make a joke or I will be a victim and go to HR!”

In most of my novels, women are the stronger of the characters as that is how they are in life. If some fat slob comes out of the bathroom naked and wants you to watch, him masturbate FFS leave! For Oprah to admit, that is how you get ahead in this industry…FFS! Find another line of work! That kind of behavior is not acceptable, and I cannot believe that is lost on these Hollywood types. What the hell is wrong with you?

Rape is never OK!

Having said that for those that knew about this shit, and said nothing shame the fuck on you! How many people were damaged because of your silence? I often wondered why so many stars have committed suicide in the past. How long has it been “ok” to rape women while promising them a spot in some future film?

Why did Judy Garland or Marilyn Monroe succumb to drug overdoses? Those were only two of too many to mention. Could it have been that they were depressed and not happy with themselves for what they had to do to get ahead? “What do you think Oprah, is it possible?”

Silence in the face of evil is evil itself!

I cannot help but wonder how many will opt to hire a man over a woman to avoid any possible litigation in the future from a remark by a fellow employee. It will happen, and this metoo stuff will be on their mind.

I went off on this tangent because 20 years ago on the 17th was the anniversary of Clinton’s Lewinsky. “Listen very carefully America, I did not have a sexual relationship with that woman.” Yeah…Right…

Monika should be in her 40’s by now. Is she culpable for what happened? Should you know better at 22 years of age? Was she a victim?

Yes, she is culpable. No, she is not a victim! She was stupid, but not a victim.

I would encourage people in power to get some sort of body camera and have it recording when you are around and alone with someone of the opposite sex. In that way, you can prove your innocents of their guilt. That, of course, will exacerbate the issue of which I am alluding to.

Why should you need a body camera? I think it is possible that some women who are claiming victim status could be lying. I also believe that some men may be guilty of behavior that is not befitting of their stature. When the Congress has a slush fund of taxpayer money to pay off sexual abuse victims one has to wonder WTF?

Just maybe the swamp needs to be drained, and a light shone on everyone in it.

Today we learned that an X CIA officer was a double agent working for the Chinese. They had him under surveillance since 2006. They just arrested him today!

This person gave names of American Spies to the Chinese who rounded them up and executed at least ten of them, and some are still in prison. He gave all sorts of other secrets to the Chinese too, but we will probably never know the exact amount of damage this person caused.

On a final note, I as a writer would have trouble making this one up.  Chelsea Manning is taking bizarre to a new level. This is taking sick to a new level.

This person gave 750,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks. While in prison he decides that he is indeed a she and gets the taxpayers to fund her transformation. “It is too bad they gave up shock therapy.”

As a parting gesture of goodwill or fuck Americans, President Obama pardons this person.
Years ago a court-martial under the espionage act meant a firing squad.  Hard to dissuade bad behavior when we reward it like this!

Ok, I don’t really have a dog in this fight, that damage is done, and nobody with an ounce of sanity will let this person around classified documents ever again. Not so fast….

Someone with deep pockets is funding a campaign for her to run against an incumbent senator. Chelsea now wants to be a lawmaker. Ok, I as a writer would have trouble coming up with that one. She has already demonstrated that she has no use for the legal system so why become a creator of laws? We will hear more about this as she will get her 15 minutes of fame.

Who is funding her and why? Is this some sort of cruel joke?

Her ad was professionally created, this was no YouTube thing. I worked in advertising, and I can tell you that some money was spent to develop the message and the ad. The ad is dark and to me, caustic.

Politics is not where you want to be if you have a less than perfect history. Even if you were Jesus himself, the swamp creatures would tear you apart! Hell, Jesus would probably prefer dealing with the Pharisees and being nailed to the cross again, vs. dealing with politicians and a media that does not like you!

I actually have some empathy for this Chelsea person as this will not be pretty and will not end well.

I learned many years ago to opt out of controversial things like this as I have no control over it. As a trope to write about I guess one could add something like this to a story but who would believe it?

Taking my cue’s from the news, I suppose I could write about current events changing the names…LOL

No, the news is too toxic for me. Watching even a little of it just pisses me off. If I am pissed I lose my ability to create, write and so on. The news is my kryptonite!

In the spirit of the day “Not my Monkeys, Not my circus!”

Ghost Signals of Colorado Springs is moving up the charts! You folks seem to like it!
Thanks so much for supporting independent authors like myself. I work a full-time job and write and blog and market… One day I must check out my pillow and see what it feels like to sleep more than a few hours at a time.

I appreciate the follows and retweets and the kind comments that often find their way to me through the website http://www.authortwscott.com .. I read them, and as time permits, if appropriate, I will respond.

Hello fellow travelers!

With rigged elections, one has to wonder just how sacrosanct our elections truly are.

 

How are you doing?  Have you had a good week?  Or are you like me, troubled by the events in New York and other places?  I think my faith in our government is a little shaken.  How about you?

I mention traveler because that is what we are all doing, we are traveling.  Yes, we go day to day at our jobs or our lives, but we are still traveling.

A lot of people don’t get it.  You see they think life is about the destination.  Even a lot of the Christians think about the destination of heaven or hell.

Life is not about the destination.

Life is a series of adventures.  When one ends, another begins.  They may be short adventures or long extended adventures, but they are adventures.

So what is life about?

Life is about the journey.

Life is about how you manage your day to day lives making the best out of what you have.

Some foolishly believe that the very rich have it made.  Indeed their goal is to be the very rich!

Money is a tool.  Much like a hammer or a saw, it is a tool.  Some of us are very good at keeping up with our tools and managing them well.  Some are not.  I just want enough as not to have to worry about continually doing something to obtain it.

The more money that you have, the more people will find a way to get it from you.  If you were to win the lottery let’s say, do you have any idea how many “friends” you would suddenly have?

Every charity of the world would play to your emotions trying to extract some part of your windfall.

Your family would also be at your door.

No, I do not play the lottery.  Firstly, I understand math and statistics.

The lottery is a “stupid tax.” Let me say that another way, the lottery is designed to take money away from people who don’t understand math or statistics.

Casinos are also for the folks who don’t understand math.

All games of chance are geared for the house to win. All of those one-armed bandits are wired together to a network of computers.  Some programmer writes the algorithms that tell the many machines out there what they can pay out on any given time.

They must have some payouts, or people would not go.  They don’t pay for those fancy casinos with their own money…  In short, its rigged.

You’re best chances or odds if you will are on games that are not electronic.  Poker, Keno, Roulette to name a few.  The odds are still against you but, not as bad as the one-armed bandits.

I talk about the game of chance and poker and our government because of the revelations of this week.  Bernie was cheated.   To be absolutely fair, Bernie was wheeling and dealing toward to end of the primary.  He was lobbying the DNC for his own jet, and a house on the beach so he would not contest the results and withdraw and of course support Hillary.

With rigged elections, one has to wonder just how sacrosanct our elections truly are.

There are governments in the world today who rig elections to stay in power, are we doing that?

The Clinton machine cheated millions of Americans who voted for Bernie.  The mainstream media is downplaying it or not giving it any airtime.  Liberal talking heads are spinning this behavior as usual!

Donna Brazil who is the whistleblower is the same person who before the debate gave Hillary the questions that she would be asked during the debate.  Who are these people that we elected?

Why is she telling all now?  She wrote a book and is marketing it.  She was part of the machine and is now trying to get rich.

I try not to focus on this too much as there is little that I can do about it.  I think that the media should be reporting the news and not be making up the news.  I believe that Yellow Journalism is alive and well in this country.

  • If you supported Bernie Sanders your vote was stolen.
  • If you supported Martin O’Malley your vote was stolen.
  • This is banana republic kind of stuff, and it happened here!
  • Do you have feelings or thoughts about this?

How do we stop it from happening again?  That is the real question.  Was there an oversight process and if so, how did it fail?

I should be working on my novel, and I am writing a blog.  Have you ever tried to get your head back into your story and away from life?

Currently, my story is traveling at faster than light speed away from the earth!  Some crazy computer has just abducted my characters!

If you like what you read, please follow me and share with your friends and family and whoever else you think might be interested.

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.

dj 52017 - Copy

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.

Nude Webcamming, Is that something you would consider?

If it were not for all of the different types of people in this world, it would be pretty dull.

 

Greetings and welcome to my Blog.

Toward the bottom you will find and excerpt from Cyber Subs.

Tonight I wanted to answer some questions regarding some feedback, as well as some twitter comments.

“Did you know that you have some followers who are openly gay and even Trans?  Some followers of yours are openly porn dealers!”

“Yes, I know that some of my followers are gay.  Yes, I am aware that some of them are actively seeking clients for their activities on sites like My Free Cams.”

If I follow them or RT them, that does not mean that I endorse what they are doing.  I also will not condemn them. 

Yes, from time to time I will re-tweet those that follow me if there is something that I think others will find of value.  The ladies that “model” to fulfill fantasies of people around the world most probably do this in other local places beside the internet. Just a guess.

I welcome civil discourse from anyone that reads my blogs or books.  I will not judge you.  I may ignore you; if you are not pleasant.

If you were to gather some folks and put them all into a darkened room, I think you would find that what we have in common, far outweighs the biases that some impose on others.  I would encourage everyone to seek that which we share, and not that which divides us.

When I started marketing my books after I wrote several, someone followed me on Twitter who on her bio said “Cyber Whore or Slut.” I forget which.  Folks, I don’t judge people, that is above my pay grade.  If it were not for all of the different types of people in this world, it would be pretty dull.

If you ever get a chance to meet me, you will find that I will engage you in conversation.  Your tattoos or piercings or race or ethnicity or sexual orientation does not, or will not daunt me.  While many do this to rebel against that which is, I am not dissuaded.  I see through you! By “this,” I mean excessive ink or piercings or what have you.

Assuming that you are not stoned or incapable of articulating your speech, I welcome everyone to participate in civil, social intercourse. (talking)  Your ideas have merit!  Everyone brings something to the table.  I value you, just like I value those that read my work or blog or tweets.  It makes little difference if you are in lockstep agreement with me or not.

If we seek improvement or betterment, or as I like to say enlightenment, that is more than half the battle.   Someone once said, “if you are coasting, you are going downhill!”

Think about that, and then apply it to your life.

This person who followed me on Twitter piqued my curiosity as to why she would describe herself in such a pejorative manner.  Unaware that there was such a place as My Free Cams, I followed her link.  Her description was and is part of her marketing strategy.  That and some lewd pictures of herself.   I am all about self-discovery and accepting oneself for who and what they are.  I am also an artist who loves the human body of any gender!

I for one am thankful that she followed me.  We have talked a few times on Twitter. However, she has no clue that her spirit, if you will, is part of my book.

It took little time to discover what this site was about, and the fantasies that it facilitates. Some would say that this is probably a hollow existence. I have found however that imaginations, unlike people, seldom let you down.  One could arguably question the mental stability of those of us who choose to live vicariously through such actions; I would say that as long as you can separate the two, you are good to go.

Many of us live through some sort of fantasy, and not all fantasies are sexual. Some might watch sports, secretly envisioning themselves as the quarterback or the pitcher. When we read (and when we write) we live through the characters in the book.  That is why my characters are so dynamic!

Those that read EL James books are living vicariously through her characters.

Imagine if you will, allowing someone to pull down your panties and take a belt to your bare bottom. What could someone possibly get out of that? 

After a suitable amount of investigative research, I wrote such a book as an experiment.  Science Fiction is my usual mode of thinking when it comes to writing.  Exploring erotic fantasy with a technological bent was and is close.

Cyber Subs, no not submarines but SUBS!

Trisha and Denise were friends in a farming community in Kansas.  If you have ever lived in such a place, you know that it can get pretty dull.  Human sexuality being what it is, adding the internet into the mix, this story wrote itself.

Cyber Subs receives over 2500 hits every day.  Please consider owning your own copy, and by all means, give me feedback.  The price is low because I, like many, are independent authors.  That means that agents and publishers are not getting anything out of it.  It also means that we as authors do everything!  We write it, edit it, market it and do the cover art.  The amazing part is that Amazon and other e-publishing sites still get over 30%, and they do nothing.  They provide the place to put it along with millions of others.  They have some upfront programming cost, and everything else is automated gravy.

If you as an author or I chose to use their marketing tools, they charge for that as well.  That is why we enjoy it when someone like yourself reads our books and offers some feedback.  We love it when you give us feedback! I will guarantee that there are typos in our books.  Since I find them all the time in published Barns and Nobles type books, I can predict you will see them as well.  If you see them in my novels, please let me know.  I publish my books with a revision number much as software writers do with their code.  I will fix them when enough are found either by yourself, and or others like you, and fix them.  Once I do I will tweet about it as I did with Saga of the Starduster.  That novel is still my number one best seller!

Let’s see if we can get Cyber Subs to give it some competition!

Follow me and find me at the links below.

My gosh, I don’t have to say it but press this blog and help me get my blog going better.  I spend hours writing good stuff here, and just a few of you know about it.  Thanks!

Below you will see an excerpt from Cyber Subs.

Trisha has bombed out at finding work in Kansas and decided to leave for Phoenix where her friend is managing to make a living.  What her friend does is shocking!

Escape from Hell

Trisha’s brother was secretly happy for his sister getting out of Kansas.  He knew that she was unhappy on the farm. After graduating from college, the jobs were not there.

“Do you think you will be coming home again sis,” David asked?

“David, I am not going to lie, I hope not, not to stay anyway.  I love you and Dad, but this is not for me.”

“After Mom passed I knew it was rough on you; Dad was so upset with you for leaving that he has me driving you to the airport.”

“David, I know you understand; I am not ready to be “the little woman” without the perks that go with it.  Farm life sucks!  I am twenty-six years old, and still a virgin for Pete sake, at least you get some action..”

“My friend Billy likes you, Trisha.”

“Billy, you can’t be serious. We are talking about a guy that failed gym class.  This guy fights the hogs for their slop!  I think I can do better.”

David laughed; he knew that she was right.

“Sis, come home for the holidays, there is little going on that time of year. By then maybe Dad and I will learn how to cook without poisoning ourselves.”

“Just remember, the smoke detector is not the oven timer! You will be alright.”

“Do you need me to park, and help with your bags?”

“No, one bag rides on the other, I got this David.  Stay in touch; you have my number.”

“Love you, sis, take care of yourself.”

David watched for a minute as she went to curbside check-in, then up the escalator as if she was running for her life.

Getting through the airport gave her time to think about what she was doing.

Her friend Denise moved before she graduated and managed to make it in Phoenix. If Denise could do it, Trisha figured she might too.

She missed her roommate and all the things that they shared; Trisha was looking forward to catching up.

The flight from Kansas City was bumpy as they went over the southern tip of Colorado on her to way Phoenix.  Once off the plane, it was evident that she was no longer in Kansas. The heat was intense; Trisha wished that she had a bottle of water as she waited on Denise.

A honking horn signaled Trisha that Denise was waiting along the curb for her.  It was all they could do to fit her luggage into the lime green Volkswagen that Denise had in Kansas.

“You still have Denny?”

“Can you believe it? How have you been sugar?”

“I was going crazy.  After mom passed, Dad has been a mess.  He and David are obsessed with the farm, and I got tired of being the “little woman.”

“That had to suck.  So, how long can you stay?”

“That is up in the air. If I can find a job and support myself, I might just stay here period.  Otherwise, I am going to try until my savings run out, and then buy a ticket home.”

“I don’t mean to sound cliché but Trisha; you’re not in Kansas anymore.  There are opportunities here.”

“You were pretty tight-lipped on the phone, what do you do to make it?”

“Don’t judge me, just listen and then we can talk.”

Pulling into the parking lot of her apartment complex, they each grabbed a bag and headed inside.

Denise had a three-bedroom apartment, a master, guest, and office.

“This is lovely Denise, ok, if you are managing this by yourself, I will try hard not to judge you, what are you doing?”

“Primarily I do waitress stuff, Trisha, opening her closet she showed her some outfits that belonged to a chain of restaurants that specialize in entertaining their men clientele.”

“You’re showing your boobs for tips?”

“I seem to remember you getting a few pinches on your bottom at the truck stop for tips; there is no touching here and, it is just some of the goods, not all of me.”

“If my parents had found out about those pinches, I would have been killed,” Trisha said.

“Me too but, we made some money, and we survived Lawrence Kansas.”

“In a strange way Denise, I miss those little pinches.  Does that even make sense?” Denise smiled at her reaching behind her, pinching her bottom, “are you better now?”

“Thanks!” she said laughing at her. “Are they hiring?”

“We are, and I already have you pretty much hired, are you up for pulling a shift tonight?”

“Without even an interview?”

Touching Trisha’s breasts through her blouse, “honey, with these things, if you wear one of my outfits here, talk like you have a few neurons firing in that beautiful blond head of yours, it will not even be a question.”

Trisha liked the feel of her touch.  She wondered what had changed.  Denise had never felt her before in any manner.

“If I can make some money, it will extend my stay, are you sure you are ok with me staying here with you?”

“For the first week or so, you are my guest Trisha, if you feel like you can make it, and you want to stay, share the rent and groceries with me.  Deal?”

“Ok, I guess I can wait tables again.”

“After we get you unpacked, let me show you a few tricks to get the most tips.”

“Like we used to get the answers for the test and share them?”

“Just like it…We are going to have fun.”

“I have missed you, Denise; do you remember all the adventures we had?”

“You mean the trouble we got into with the sisters?”

“Yea, that too, but we had fun.”

“Between the farm and school, I could not wait to get out of town!” Denise said.

“It was bearable until Mom died of cancer. After you left and she died, I could not stand it!”

“I am surprised you lasted as long as you did.”

“I think I still have bruises from Barney at the truck stop.  Are you sure they don’t touch here?”

Denise looked at her bottom and then her, “you know, with that bottom and those boobs, you may make more than me. No, they don’t touch.”

“You said primarily you wait tables, what else do you do?”

“Are you still open-minded?” She asked.

“I will still smoke weed if you can get it, how open-minded do I need to be?”

Denise led her to her office.  Opening the door, it looked more like a photography studio than an office.

“Ok, I will bite, what is this?”

“Trisha, I make a lot of money with this, and I have fun doing it.  I smoke a little grass, drink a little wine and tease the hell out of people from around the world.  They do not know who I am, or where I am.”

“Still not judging here, I have seen some cam stuff on the internet, is that what you do?”

“I am not sure what you saw but, do you remember Stacy that lives on that farm on the east side?”

“Of course, what about her.”

“I saw her on here, out in the field at that picnic table doing this from the farm.”

“You mean the picnic table we all ate watermelon on a few years ago?”

“Yes, and we played in the kiddie pool, it was still there!”

“Small world, how do you keep people from knowing who you are?”

Pointing to wigs, makeup and other outfits in the closet, she looked at Trisha. “Still not judging me?”

“No, I think I have butterflies in my stomach thinking about what it must be like to do that.”

“The first few times it was fucking awesome.  There is this huge adrenaline rush.”

“Do we have time to see some of this before we go wait tables?”

“Help me fix some lunch; we can watch a little while we eat.  I can take the laptop out to the kitchen.”

Trisha had obtained a quick tour of the camera site before they had to get dressed.  Fixing her clothing to look like she had worked there for years, the manager hired her on the spot.  Denise trained her in no time; it was a limited menu.

On the way home that night they stopped for fast food.  “What did you think of your first day?”

“I should be exhausted, but I am wired.”

“We have the same schedule; Burt knows that you are staying with me, and he likes you.  Between the two of us, we will probably bring in more customers for him.”

“These boobs have not done much for me so far; why not bring in some money?”

“That is the way I look at it. I am good for a couple of hours, would you like to watch me cam a little?”

Trisha looked at her, “Ok, I think I would, that will be terribly personal won’t it?”

“You are my oldest and dearest friend, besides; you might like what you see.”

Trisha now knew that something had changed with her friend.  A frisson went through her, as she thought about how this night might end. Denise set her up in an opposite corner of the room with her laptop logged into the site.  Trisha could see the cameras that Denise was using as well as a behind the scenes look.

This novel is 105 thousand words of a story.  I admit that it has some tawdriness to it but, it is a complete story with humor, love, plot twist and turns and even some remote love of a very different kind.

A word about Hugh.

 

I myself have or had little use for or knowledge of Hugh Hefner.

I have read through his magazines over the years as some of the articles were, well written.

As an artist, I found his models posed for the most part in a respectful/artistic way.  Unlike the porn we have today which is hard not to stumble over on the internet, Playboy was rather bland in comparison.

As a mature person, I remember some of the early magazines with clover leafs over nipples, and what have you.

If a (person) makes a conscious decision to model for a magazine like his, who are we to say anything? Our first lady was a model of impeccable taste.

As many of you know, I worked in the Advertising industry for years.  Sex Sells!

We, humans, are geared for sex. Men are more visual creatures and I can tell you that the advertising industry knows that all too well.

Hugh knew it too and made his fortune selling the sizzle and not the steak.  Hugh sold the fantasy and portrayed that fantasy in his silk robe and pipe.  That fantasy sold millions of magazines and to be absolutely fair, started many young ladies careers.

hugh

The Religious folks are now trashing him on social media and folks, his sin was no worse than theirs or mine or yours. Sin is sin is sin!  Unless you are Jesus Christ himself, you are a sinner! If you feel differently, you clearly don’t understand sin.

To judge this man is not their job, that job is reserved for God.

To judge me, or other writers who might write some tawdry novel is not your job, or theirs.  It is gods Job, and I am ok with it.

I talk about marketing and what sells.  Sex sells not only in a visual medium like the centerfold, but it sells in my novels where I paint a picture with words that are what?  They are a fantasy for you to enjoy.

Some folks are so hypocritical.  One of my friends was upset with her husband because she caught him looking at pornography on the internet.  Sticking out of her purse was a copy of 50 shades.

50 shades

To me, that is like having a diet coke with a slice of German chocolate cake thinking that will help with your diet.

I can paint some pretty graphic pornography with words as can many of you.  Porn is porn and your sin is no less sinful than his.  Men are visual and women well, like their porn too, they just like it disguised in romance novels.  The idea of being held down while the burly stranger that you have been teasing with rips your silky panties off you is…porn.

I am reminded about casting the first stone and me for one live in a glass house, as do you.

Hugh lived a life that most men only dream of, I would guess.  He had 7 girlfriends at one time and I would bet it was not all peaches and cream.  I can say that because I have read the bible several times and King Solomon had several hundred wives and several hundred Concubines.  Can you imagine what his household was like?

Judge not should be all of our mantras, it is certainly mine.

Whether you are a “religious” person or not, judging others is not our job.   For the religious right to call him the names that I am reading is just wrong.  My theory is that they are jealous of what he had and what he did in his 90 odd years so they are using the bible to beat their chest while being a bully to those who don’t know all of the facts.  They are wrong on many levels, and it is sad.  It is actually a sad day for Christianity as it is a terrible role model of what Christ was about.

I understood Hugh did many good things with his wealth while he was alive, so again, judge not.

God has this….

I for one believe that one day we might meet one another. I will shake his hand if he/we indeed have hands in heaven.

If you just muttered under your breath that we will meet in hell, man, examine your soul!

RIP Hugh.

Yes, Smashwords does not like crack..Buttcrack…

Yes, they really did object…

Dragon Master and the Witch
Book Cover for Dragon MAster and the Witch By TWScott

If that is not art I will eat it…. Good thing it is digital…

When I posted that blog about my cover art some were amazed that Smashwords would take issue with my witch in the lake.

It is sad that I had to do this to pacify the Puritans …

No, witches don’t really melt when you get them in water.  Could you imagine if they did, there would be no witches, Well, no witches that you could stand to be around as they would stink the high heavens!

Yes, Witches enjoy a shower like the rest of the world.  Yes, some witches do have nice butts even though I admit that my cover art witch, is my creation…. Lol

My claim is that I was under the spell of the witches to create butt that is perfect from the bottom to the top…

I like Big Butts and I cannot lie… oops I digress 

I was thinking about a story regarding Francisco Goya when I got this from Smashwords.

Modified Goya Nude MAJA
modified by others and eventually me to look more natural.

This painting of his was so risqué that it was not seen in public.  He in fact never got to see his work on public display during his lifetime.

I love this painting, not so much for the Nude Maja but the incredible detail.

I did a study of fabric with my own nude and mine is crap compared to his.

Lady in Blue
Fabric Study 2000

I found Goya’s on line and took the liberty of doing a little touch-up.  Still this is a fabulous painting so much so that I may do one like it just to have it on my wall.  No, can’t sell a copy of someone’s painting but there is nothing wrong with doing it for yourself.

Often times we artist get into trouble when we do such things for pecuniary interests.  (Making money)

Copying his work however to learn, is perfectly acceptable.

I enjoy art immensely.  I could not resist touching up this painting by Goya.  I did it for two reasons really.

The first is the copy I found on the internet has been modified already from the original.  Second I came to know the painting as I can see his brush strokes.  The paint used is nothing like we have today.  Back in the day, they made their own paint and cadmium red or cadmium anything was toxic as hell.

While we think that we are safer today with our modern day paints and chemicals I would tell you that just because it is odorless does not mean that it is not toxic.  I still use very well ventilated areas for painting.  In the cooler months, I might very well go outside to paint.

Today with the IPad Pro and some good software, I can get my art fix with no chemicals.

Take a look at the Goya and then my fabric study and you will see what I mean.

I did this fifteen plus years ago so consider that when judging me … LOL

In other News, Perpetual Palpitation seems to be moving up the charts of books downloaded. 

If you are on this blog, and you are the one of those buying it, Thanks for that!

I look for trends and then try to analyze them.

Robots are going to rule us all!

Who is your e publishing site?

There are times that I just want to toss in the towel.

Do you ever feel that way?

By all accounts, I am a pretty fair artist.  I could post all kinds of paintings, but that is not my purpose, to boast.  My point in mentioning it is that what I do is really ART!

When I create a cover, it is art, not some thrown together miss mash of stuff.

Dragon Master and the Witch has on the cover a very tasteful nude.  I gave her a butt for our ages but never the less it is a drawing or painting if you will.  Nothing about it is salacious.

She has been swimming in the lake, and the birds are bringing her a towel.  I wanted to give the reader a taste of what is in this novel.

Now on top of this “painting” is a tiny dragon named Rex who is a scamp.  I went out of my way to give him the appearance of being a fun loving scamp.

On the left is the newer Smashwords cover.

On the right is the original “naughty” version FFS!

Published on Amazon, no problems they love it.

Released on Smashwords Holey Hannah, I have PORN on my cover!

I wonder if I should have draped her in all black cloth.   I thought about putting a fig leaf on her butt.

In advertising, the cover art is the sizzle.  You must have good art if you want to attract someone’s attention.  The goal is to entice them to pick up the novel and turn to the cover page.

“There must be No ButtCrack! Or wobbly bits etc .”

“Please re-do your cover and re-submit”  Oh and by the way we are not really fond of your paragraphs.  This is an automated machine telling you this so we cannot be more specific, just keep redoing it until the robot likes it.”

“If you can’t get anywhere with our meat grinder please contact one of our many people who charge very little to format your manuscript so the meat grinder will not eat it. ”

“Hey Smashwords, find some folks who will not only format it but edit it for a reasonable cost and you might have something.”

Ideally, I would like an editor who would work on my manuscripts and his or her remuneration would be so much of the profit into perpetuity.  That would have them put some more skin into the game and oh by the way if they are good, make a ton of bucks on our work.

I think they call that an agent… lol

Is it any wonder why most of my stuff is on Amazon?

What are your experiences?

Do you have an e-pub site that you are happy with?

Oh for the love of an agent or publisher.  “Here, take my latest manuscript and make millions with it!”

I did not have this much trouble getting published in magazines.

Oh well, that is my Friday night rant!
