Here you go - two new stories!
"The Box" and "In the Corners of My Mind".
updated my story “No Other Silly Girl Need Apply” at the three different sites I post to with chapter 11. I hope you will enjoy how the story unfolds. I’ switch back and forth between that and the new romance I’m writing, “Soul Unique”. Having fun with both!
Glassware can get pretty expensive especially if you’re in college and always getting sht faced and breaking your glasses. Start just using your empty beer bottles and turning them into your new glasses. Look dope, easy to make and cheap! Follow these 5 easy steps.
Step 1 – Grab a beer bottle preferably with thick glass such as corona bottles. Tie a string just above the label on the empty bottle
Step 2 – Keep the string tied and soak it in lighter fluid.
Step 3 – Put the string back on the bottle and hold it horizontally. Light the sting rotating the bottle so the flame spreads. You should hear the bottle crack slightly in about 10 seconds.
Step 4 – After you hear the crack, pour cold water on the string and the top of the bottle will fall off.
Step 5 – Now grab sandpaper and sand the edges of the bottle till it is smooth.
I DONT BELIEVE ITS THAT EASY! I WOULD PROBABLY EXPLODE THE WHOLE BOTTLE AND BLIND MYSELF.
I’ve tried this many times and I can’t get the damn glass to break right.
There is a better method for minimum post-sanding.
Ohhhhh…it never gets old. My 12th novel!!! I received my author’s copies today and it still makes me all giddy and emotional. So many hours of planning, writing, typing, editing—and in my case, 3D modelling and painting as I created the cover art. I’m so pleased with how it looks and so happy about this book.
Here’s the blurb for those of you who haven’t seen it before:
The Blush Factor by Gun Brooke.
Eleanor Ashcroft is at the top of her game. Revered by stockholders, feared in boardrooms and by employees all over the Eastern Seaboard, her life changes when she decides to restore an inherited makeup company to its former glory. While doing research, Eleanor discovers the YouTube makeup gurus and the most successful channel, “The Blush Factor,” becomes her guilty pleasure. She finds the much-younger woman in the videos mesmerizing and profoundly attractive in a way she had never felt about a woman before.
Addison Garry loves makeup. A YouTube celebrity, her video tutorials and reviews attract hordes of viewers. When Eleanor wants Addison to do consulting for her company, Addison needs the money and knows she can’t refuse the infamous businesswoman. Working with Eleanor, Addison finds it hard to act strictly professional as she both fears her and dreams of winning her heart. Eleanor in turn realizes that her attraction to Addison is not a mere midlife crisis at all, but looks very much like love.
“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, and she stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her. I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute i could. I gave her a lot of gifts and i lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she could love that much. And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man.” ~ Brad Pitt about Angelina Jolie
Actually, no. A woman is not a reflection of any man. A woman is a reflection of her own self. Women do not need men to make them happy. I mean, sure, sometimes it might help to have the extra support and attention, but most women are or can be even more fabulous when they’re without a man at their side. (Hillary Clinton anyone?)
This is not the 1900s, and I don’t know how or why Brad Pitt can get away with saying this. It makes women out to be submissive, meek, dependent people whose mood and wellness lies solely in the hands of their husband or boyfriend. Where are all the feminists to back me up? I mean, I can’t be the only one who is disgusted by this post.
Dear Brad Pitt, you are not a woman-saving god.
Oh good lord Brad Pitt. Hör wife was no doubt clinically depressed. Nice of you to be loyal and supportive…. But she’s not a reflection of you. You make her sound like… Not genuine or real or something. Better think through that phrasing again.
