The Grand Hotel

Chapter 16

The Crush

Twenty minutes later, Ming dashed for the elevator and made her way to her suite. She opened the door and stepped across the threshold.

She heard soft music playing. “Sweet, sweet sticky thing. Sweet, sweet sticky thing….”

"Conrad, I'm here!" she hollered as she entered. Quickly she dashed down the hallway into the master bedroom. Seconds later Conrad emerged from the bathroom.

"Ming, I’ve been waiting for you darling" he smiled seductively dropping his towel. He walked naked over to the bureau and picked up a drink.

Ming stood staring openly, transfixed at how sexy he looked. She thought she was the luckiest woman in the world. This sexy Adonis God was her husband, she said in her mind. She was aroused just staring at him.

“You look tense, Ming. I know how demanding the girls can be. I’m sorry I didn’t help you with them earlier,” he said. “Here, I made your favorite drink.”

“A Toasted Almond, just like I like it. Apology accepted,” Ming said, smiling and taking the drink. Conrad is always doing things to make me happy. He loves me so much, she thought.

“Thank you Conrad.”

“You know you are the most important person in my life. I’ve got to keep my woman happy,” he added. “Now drink up,” he said clinking glasses.

He downed his drink then watched as Ming’s throat rippled, as she swallowed.

She shivered and then smiled. “Whew! That went down smoothly.”

Instantly Ming thought she saw a flash of light. She listened attentively. The lyrics of the song that was playing intensified. Sweet, sweet sticky thing….Sweet, sweet sticky thing. Filled the room.

“Damn Conrad, you look so good standing naked before me. Just like a dream,” Ming murmured, her head felt like she had entered a dreamlike haze.

Conrad reached out and pulled her into a close embrace. His lips twitched as he stared back at her. He leaned closer and kissed her and felt her mouth open in response to him.

Abruptly he pulled away pushed Ming out of his embrace. His fingers quickly embraced the zipper of her dress and slid it down.

Ming stepped out of her dress. She stood before him in her black bustier. She still wore her high heels.

Ming watched Conrad’s hawk slanted eyes gaze back at her like a predator owning its prey.

He kissed her eagerly this time. It unleashed a groan from Ming’s throat.

“Keep the heels on. You look so sexy in them,” he murmured and let his lips capture hers. Then his tongue snaked out and eased to her ear. “You are my woman. You do as I say.”

Ming groaned at the softness of his voice. It created a delirium of seductive sensual longing. It sent her senses reeling. She relaxed against him astonished at the frantic need to feel him closer.

The kiss went on and on. Then Conrad’s mouth wandered to her neck and her shoulders. He thrust his hand inside her bustier and squeezed her breast.

Ming moaned again unable to control her feelings of pleasure. “Oh…..I feel warm all over. Damn, I want you Conrad.”

“You’re feeling your passion. That’s good, I love to see a woman enjoying her passion,” he said pushing her down on the bed. “You’re so beautiful Ming.”

Ming felt like her mind was leaving her body. A moment of surprise registered. Her voice was a soft whisper, as her words tumbled out. “Conrad did you put something in my drink? Why? You know I’d do anything for you.”

He kissed her softly. “Yes, I know you’d do anything for me Ming, because you love me,” he murmured.

“Yes, I love you,” she moaned.

Ming, you said you had the courage to do anything. Anything I asked you to do. Don’t you remember?”

Ming’s eyes grew wide. She knew what Conrad meant. She’d seen that look before. Conrad was bored with her sexually. It didn’t matter how many times she went down on him. He’d always felt that maybe he’d missed out on something by marrying Ming so young. She stared terrified back at him. “Don’t….Don’t you still…?”

“Don’t even say that Ming. You know I still love you. I just want us to spice things up a bit,” he smiled.

She felt the drug relax her more…….

“I really liked this book!! I read it in one night.....

“I really liked this book!! I read it in one night and wish the next one was published already, but I guess it won’t come out until 2015 Oh well, lol I’ll wait. I was very entertained by this novel and with all the developments the characters all got into. And there are a LOT of characters, but they are all really well developed and you really feel like you get to know them inside and out, which is good. It is filled with drama and complex interpersonal relationships, and is sexy. Such a great combination! Ready for more! (4.5 stars).”

--------------- What Inspires Author J. A. Jackson?

What Inspires Author J. A. Jackson?

Well I am inspired by many things.

Tidbits of odd knowledge I may pick up while reading during the day.

Odd questions that will fill my head. Questions that are what I refer to as the “What if” moments.

Everyday life experiences

Even old childhood memories give me inspiration.

However for my book ~ The Grand Hotel my inspiration came several places.

One from walking past the royal old Sir Drake Hotel on Powell Street in San Francisco one night.

Next from seeing a wedding reception held at the Fairmont Hotel.

And did I mention attending an annual Christmas event held in Danville California.

Well all of these things inspired me. But as to all the drama...

From the Debaucherous love affairs

To the Scandalous-Seduction that were mentioned in full force in my book....

Along with spine-tingling ghosts popping in and out.

Well these things were all from the mind of this author and hopefully provide a wonderful read.

Just thought you’d like to know a few things that inspired my novel, The Grand Hotel by J. A. Jackson.

The Grand Hotel - Confessions, Mixing Love & Pleasure.....

Chapter 17

Confessions, Mixing Love & Pleasure...

Monty Wildfire marched down the hall to the elevator. He was mad as hell. “Who does that old bat, Grand mere Catherine, think she is? I’m Monty Wildfire. I can have any woman I want,” he murmured as he got on the elevator. He punched the buttons without a thought. His handsome face was deeply marred with a frown.

The elevator door slid open.

“Monty Wildfire!” A woman’s sultry voice called as she entered.

Monty couldn’t recall the voice. His eyes had trouble looking at the woman’s face. His eyes locked, spellbound and at eye level with the woman’s chest. Forty double D cups gave him a high salute and shook him out of his melancholy mood.

“Admiring the girls Monty?”

Monty nodded and finally looked at the woman’s face. It was Fleur Lemieux. Grinning, he rubbed his chin.

Fleur Lemieux was a very tall, very attractive, well built woman. A man could get lost in her well built chest.

Unbeknownst to but a few of the wealthiest people in Silicon Valley, Fleur Lemieux ran an escort service. They did more than just make the best looking, eye candy, model types to be escorted to that special event. They could take care of a man’s or a woman’s every need.

“Well….Well,” Monty said approvingly licking his lips. “Are you staying at the hotel Fleur?”

Fleur would be a perfect diversion for the evening and she would take his mind off of Pearl. He swallowed hard. Damn, Pearl didn’t know how much he cared about her. How much he loved her. He stared back at Fleur. He did love her breasts. He licked his lips. Plus he knew Fleur owed him big time. He’d sent several rich guys her way for business.

“Yes…Yes….Monty I am. If you’ve got any free time I can take care of that favor I owe you,” she said.

“Well, I won’t lie. I’m free now,” Monty said.

“How wonderful,” she said smiling softly. “It just so happens I’m free right now too. Would you like to do me for free?”

Monty chuckled at her play on words. He was glad the elevator was empty.

“You know I would,” he licked his lips again. He could feel his body warming in all the right places.

Fleur pushed the elevator button. The door opened. “This is my floor,” she said leading the way to her suite. She walked over to a door and instantly her hand swiped the key card and the door opened.

“Nice,” Monty grinned and walked further into the room, admiring the view. The room wasn’t as luxurious as the one Pearl was staying in. Funny, he thought he couldn’t shake Pearl from his thoughts. He knew why. It was because he wanted her. He wanted Pearl badly. Grand mere Catherine’s words echoed through his mind. She thought Pearl was too good for him. He smiled softly. He figured out a way to show them. He’d get even with La Cours if it was the last thing he did.

He turned and looked at Fleur. She was tall, yes. But she was nothing compared to Pearl. Still, if he looked at Fleur just right, she didn’t look like a whore. He could fuck her with pleasure. He smiled softly.

Fleur Lemieux closed the distance between them. She touched Monty’s arm. “I have a full bar set up in the bedroom this way. What would you like to drink?”

“Bourbon, straight,” he said.

Monty watched Fleur walk to the bar and pour two glasses of bourbon.

Fleur tried to make small talk. “So Monty, I hear the Grand Isles Ball has already received over four hundred fifty thousand dollars in donations tonight. Do you think this has been the highest amount collected?” she asked running a finger gently against his thigh.

“No, but the final receipts have been calculated. The totals won’t be known until at least the end of the week. But the money is for charity. It’s all going to a good cause.”

Fleur took the moment and unzipped her dress. It fell to the floor. She stood naked before him.

Quickly Monty tossed back his drink and swallowed hard. He reached and poured himself another one. He gulped it down immediately. He turned around and looked at Fleur. The booze was starting to make her look better.

“Good, no underwear,” he said with a shrug. “I hate the stuff, it just slows you down.”

Fleur closed the distance between them. “You know, if you think about it, what I’m doing right now is for a good worthy charitable cause too,” she said quickly taking off Monty’s jacket. Like a skilled pro she unbuttoned his shirt and removed the rest of his clothes in seconds.

Softly he smiled looking down as his body swelled. Seductively he glanced up at Fleur. “You know, the charity you’re about to take care of is for a worthy cause too.”

Monty’s hands went instantly to cup her breasts. His fingers were expert at touching a woman. “I’m going to name your breasts Charity, for they do perform a worthy cause,” he murmured.

She purred.

Suddenly he felt Fleur’s naked body......

Wild Women Do

Remember hearing that song from the movie Pretty Woman?

Some lyrics in the song said....Wild Women Do!

So you’re writing that story and it needs something. Or someone. You think it’s time you had a character who was a Wild Women. A Seductress...

What to do?

You are thinking, just throw her in the story somewhere. Hmmmm here’s a thought. The seductions is not just any Willy, dilly, or filly character.

The Seductress is bigger than life!

She needs to have a starting point. Meaning you must consider whom she is like. For example, is your seductress a Marilyn Monroe type? Or a Madonna, Sharon Stone, or Dorothy Dandridge played Carmen Jones, Or maybe she is Halle Berry as Ginger Knowles, or Sanaa Lathan who played Ann Merai Harrison in Out of Time or Zoe Saldana as Aisha al Fadhil in The Losers

or Rosario Dawson as Gail in Sin City.

What’s my point? These women knew how to unleash their allure of female assets to sexually dominate their male counterparts.

Therefore follow the sex rules for The Seductress – show the seductress seducing that man.

Remember: “As the Devil said to his star seductress in the Broadway production of Damn Yankees This is a straight seduction job, Lola.”

Now in my own words make your seduction count burn up the pages with your sexy seduction scenes.

Writing The Story ….Some Suggestions & Things to Remember When Writing…

It’s not only what happens when you write, but who, what, when, how and where. Pace your book when writing. Be sure you string the reader along. What do I mean by string the reader along? I mean make the reader interested so that the reader keeps reading.

Think of what happens next? What are you doing to move the story alone?

In some chapters you want to give out information and introduce the complication (plot). This is where you make it interesting to keep the reader reading. Know what to tell and what to leave off.

Check your outline against your story. Look at the beginning, middle and end of your story.

Remember the key elements of your story. Have you introduced your main characters such as the hero, or heroine? When describing them choose your words carefully. Think of it this way the amount of time you spend describing a character tells the reader how important they are.

Let your character’s voices speak.

Next up complication (plot) and the secondary characters. Who are they? What do they do?

Next do you have confrontations, suspense, physical attraction, and the realization of something unattainable? >p> What are these?

Things that keep you story moving. This is not to say you give the reader every small detail.

Now start writing!

Pride, Prejudice, Procrastination...

Pride, Prejudice, Procrastination….

What are they? Words that begin with the letter P




Quit holding back!

Where is your passion?

Take the plunge!

Get into the flow of process and get back to writing.

Writing must have a beginning, before it can have a middle and then an ending. Today is the first day of your writing journey. Journey on….Write!

The 15-Minute Social Media Audit Everyone Can Do!

See the attached link for full article....

The 15-Minute Social Media Audit Everyone Can Do!

Written by Kevan Lee Posted on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 Written by Kevan Lee Check list The word “audit” deserves more love than it gets. When I hear the word, my mind goes straight to tax season and the manila envelope crammed with receipts and forms that I keep stashed away in the closet. Audits seem to equal anxiety, which is too bad – because not all audits are created equal. A tune-up at the garage is essentially an audit for your car, a check-up at the doctor is an audit of your health. You can learn a lot from regular reviews like these. The same holds true for an audit of your social media marketing. You can learn a lot from an examination of how you manage (or don’t manage) your online brand. If it helps to think of a social media audit as something else—a marketing mastermind, maybe?—then so be it. Don’t let the word “audit” get in the way of checking in regularly with your social profiles. It’s easier and more helpful than you think. Social media audits matter for everyone Maintaining a social media presence can be a full-time job, which makes it kind of difficult if your full-time job requires your time and attention be spent elsewhere. Social media profiles can fall into disrepair quickly when left alone. An audit can help get things back on track. On the flip side, there are those of you who actively maintain social media profiles and take great pain to keep everything updated and cohesive. Audits are helpful in these instances, too. They can serve as much-needed opportunities for reflection and growth. Basically, audits are helpful for everyone, no matter where you’re at with your social media marketing.

Passion, Romance, Hot & Spicy, Raw, Sexy, Fantasy, Dreams, Reality….

Passion, Romance, Hot & Spicy, Raw, Sexy, Fantasy, Raunchy, Dreamy, Reality….Uh-huh.

“Oh what is a writer to write?”

Use your imagination, and release your inhibitions. Use the three “e’s”….Experiment, Explore, Entertain!

After the multi-million dollar selling “Fifty Shades of Grey” we’ve learned that sex sells.

Now you’re next question should be….

”Does the author J. A. JACKSON write a sexy love scene? Or is it Raw, Hot and Spicy, Raunchy & Dirty?”

Hmmmm….Take a look and see for yourself. Read my books....

Oh and check out Chapter 34 of The Grand Hotel for a tantalizing taste of .......Wait for it!

Delicious things to come!

When the moon is full and the stars align...

When the moon is full, and I look back at the stars then comes a story.

Or is it because I’m listening to Sean Paul sing “Give it up to me…”I write a story.

Or is it when I put on that sexy leather halter dress, and wear those four inch shiny black pumps?

Sounds like hooey?

Hmmm ponder it.

Or is it picture it?

The words of a song, wearing my favorite high heels, or gazing at the moon….What do they all have in common?

They are things that can inspire me to write.

I think of them as preparing my creative ideas to flow.

What about you? What inspires you to write?

Now gather together your ingredients (ideas) for believable characters and plots and began writing.

I’m a writer now…Should I quit my day job? Oh no you didn’t just ask that!


“I sorry,” I said calmly. “Opps... I meant to say Jello?”

Let me make my point.

Now stuff your mouth full of ice cold red Jello, and then swallow hard. Now ask yourself this…..

“Do I want to eat Jello for breakfast, lunch and dinner?”

Now wait for it!

Do you want to just eat Jello? All the time?

If you ask me...."Jello just doesn't taste that good."

So if you want to be a writer. Be a writer. But hang on to the security of your day job.

What I’m trying to say... “You got to eat!

So don’t start listening to those trippin’ writer hater’s - folks You know the ones who tell you

~ you are a great writer - you should do this for a living. And then tell you to quit the

security of your day job. You won’t be able to find one of them to help you pay your rent.”

Now keep writing and get up tomorrow and head off to the security of that day job.

Serious about your writing?

Serious about your writing?

Take Time Daily To Pursue Your Dream! The only way to become a writer is to write…

If you are like me your day is busy. Every minute of the day is crammed with something you must do.

Yet you want to pursue your dream to write.

What do you do?

Schedule time to write daily.




All I'm saying is free up sometime in your busy schedule and then use that time to write.

For example, if you have a favorite TV show and you watch it. Chances are you got thirty minutes or an hour of time right there that you could spend writing. With this time you could start writing your outline or the first chapter of your book.

Hey but what about my favorite show?

Well think about recording it and then watching it on the weekend or your day off.

If you start pursuing your dream to write today, you make finishing your book a reality.

Let’s keep writing…Next up writing that scene!

Every scene you write should move your story forward and it should do something to your character.

For Example:

Move the character forward or keep the character from having something, a goal, another person, etc.

Every scene should show that the character is involved.

Every scene should be logical.

Every scene should have a beginning, a middle, and end.

Every scene should keep the reader interested, with conflict, villains, alliances etc.

And most importantly every scene should keep your readers interested.

Start Writing!

Saturday, March 8, 2014

Let's Write that Story...Know the first tool to writing a story? The Outline...

Developing Your Ideas Into A Story…

Plan out your story…..First up.... Make an outline.

What is an outline?

It’s the roadmap to use to write your story.

You start your story with your Characters. Remember your characters are the key.

Do you have..... a Hero & Heroine?

Do you need.... a Hero or Heroine?

Who are they? Are they loveable? Unlovable?

Are they at least likeable?

Exciting or Dull?

Do you have conflict? A Plot....Details?

Remember to keep your story on track…

Keep it moving!

So start with your outline? And develop your story.

Oh and now start writing.

What is Envy?

Shakespeare called it.... "The Green Sickness"

What is it?


Envy differs from its twin jealousy because it involves an awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another.

And accompany by a desire to have what they possess.

Why do I mention this?

Think about the character called your villain.....

What is it that they wish to possess but can't have?

Think about it.....Your next villain might just be an envious person.

He Who Knows...Writing is like Discernment ...You can learn!

Writing is like Discernment

He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not is a fool; shun him.

He who knows not, and knows that he knows not is a child; teach him.

He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep; wake him.

He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise; follow him.

How are you to know which one to apply, in any walk in life?

Discernment is the answer. Have skill in reading character. Size it up.

Just like a write must do with his characters....

More Places Ideas For Your Next Book Can Come From.....Your Dreams!

~Someone once said that everything that comes up in a dream means something.~

Did you know that the writers of Greek and Latin classics related many instances of dream experiences?

What does this mean? That some of the greatest classics of all-time began with a dream.

Get Into the Spirit of Creative Writing ~ Yep It's Time To Start Writing ~ Today!

"If You want to write, you can.

Fear stops most people from writing, not lack of talent, whatever that is.

Who am I?

What right have I to speak?

Who will listen to me if I do?

You're a unique human being, with a unique story to tell, and you have every right.

If you speak with passion, many of us will listen.

We need stories to live, all of us.

We live by story. Yours enlarges the circle."

What do you think are winning ingredients for a memorable character?

First, your audience must be able to empathize with your main character.

Considering your audience should be priority one!

Next the “meet cute” must be a magical moment & memorable moment. The meet cute is when your hero and heroine meet for the first time.

Next it’s important that you add strong dialogue and keep it real!

Watch for the cadence of dialogue does It flow? It should.

Set the tone of your characters, the story, the pacing and make sure everything flows.

Next check the emotional factor - Is your story compelling?

Now write.

Keep writing

Run with it and make your story a compelling winner!

The Plot Line! Want to make sure your novel moves forward? Grow Your Characters

If the Plot Line in Your Novel Needs Direction

What should you do?"

Place your characters in situation where they must act, react and move forward.

"Plot grows out of character. If you focus on who the people in your story are, if you sit and write about two people who you know and are getting to know better day by day, something is bound to happen." -Anne Lamont, author of Bird by Bird"

Today is the beginning of the rest of your life....Ponder This

I read this in a book somewhere once....
"Queen Maat is the gatekeeper to the heart. It is said that before men can pass on to eternal peace, his heart must be balanced on the scale of Queen Maat.

On one side of her scale Queen Maat places your heart, on the other she places a feather. The feather are your issues in life.

The feather of Queen Maat contains, truth, honor, justice, harmony and love....If you heart tips the scale you are banished form a peaceful rest and your spirit must work to cleanse itself."


Hmmm I sat and wondered is my heart as light as a feather?

What is First Class Writing According to The Other Donald…..

To Quote the Donald. ……

”First Class fiction is characterized by memorable characters unique premises, story worlds instantly real, plots that grip even when slow, gorgeous writing, and themes that surprise, challenge and change us.

Not only do we read every word, First Class writing makes us whistle in admiration. Characters are not only likeable and self-aware, but also follow a singular destiny. First class novels shake our way of thinking, challenging us to see the world in new ways.

They confidently break rules, may transport us to unlikely cultures and times, teach us things we knew little about, and always feel utterly unique. Each novel creates its own genre. First Class fiction is imitated but never matched. Its authors are revered and for good reasons.”

Chapter 17

Whips, lips, hips and other things…..

Later that same night, the moon was a luminant silver glow as Eve made her way to Xavier front door.

Eve reached behind and adjusted her black lace thong before she rang the doorbell.

Music blared from the house. She was sure she heard Creedence Clearwater Revival.

“Whoa, thought it was a nightmare, low, it's all so true

They told me, don't go walkin' slow, the devil’s on the loose”

Xavier Newhouse opened the front door unbuttoning his black shirt. “Baby I’m so glad you made it,” he said waiving her in.

Eve walked in and swept aside her hair signaling for him to take her coat.

Xavier took her coat and let out a breath. “Damn you’re dangerously delicious.” He fought hard to slow down. “Do you want a glass of wine or something?”

Eve stood there in a black lace bra and thong. Her skin was perfect. She wore nothing else but thigh high leather boots. A small black leather whip was attached to her right thigh boot.

Eve took charge of the situation. Her eyes narrowed. Her voice was low like a purr. “You’ve got something I want. And I’ve got what you need,” she said in a sexy drawl, letting her hands cup her breasts. “This is strictly business not pleasure,” she turned and stared at him. “Do you have the fireplace going in the bedroom?” She asked.

“Yes.” “Good, then what’s your pleasure? Whips, Lips, hips or fingertips?” She asked then hesitated. “Oh and I do want the negatives to my photos or all hell will break loose Xavier!”

She led the way down the corridor.

Xavier followed with a wide grin on his face.

In the bedroom Eve closed the door. She walked slowly toward him.

Xavier’s heart was pounding. The moment was intense. His chest clenched. His throat was dry.

Eve walked over and touched his chest and quickly released the buttons from his shirt. “Xavier I’ll take that drink now.”

Quickly Xavier poured from the decanter next to the bed.

Eve intertwined her arm with his. “Let’s drink like they do in the movies,” she purred.

He smiled back hungrily and agreed. He thrust back his head with the heady drink just as she did.

Then without a word Eve leaned over and kissed him. His lips covered hers and coaxed them apart.

Eve eased back against the bed as her tongue crept forward searching for his. Then the kiss broke out of control.

Xavier tore his mouth from hers. His tongue traced down to the valley between her full breasts. He fought to slow down but found that he couldn’t. He took one firm nipple in his mouth and sucked hard. He moaned. He felt like he was under a spell.

“God I want to be inside you Eve.” He was burning with desire for this woman. His cock stained at the walls of his pants.

“Eve…Eve…Please help me take my pants off?”

He froze. He thought he heard a rumbling. He looked back at Eve. His body tensed.

A split second later Eve thought she heard the song again.

Better run through the jungle, don't look back……

The last thing Eve heard was Xavier growling. Before he fell forward on top of her and fell fast asleep.


Eve called his name again. “Xavier? Are you alright?”

“He can’t harm you. He’s asleep.” A woman’s voice sliced the air. “Just push him off of you.”

Eve pushed as she was told. She looked to see where the perky high pitched voice was coming from.

A small petite woman stood at the front of the bed.

“Who…Who are you?”

“You really want to know if I’m real, don’t you Eve?”

Instantly Eve scrambled to her feet. “Well yes.”

“I’m not a ghost or a witch,” the small framed woman said. “I’m Matilda.”

“Well Matilda it’s nice to meet you and I’m glad you’re not a ghost or a witch. But you kind of interrupted me….I mean Xavier and I.”

“He wasn’t meant for you,” Matilda said. “He isn’t your type anymore.

Besides, you just came for your photos. They’re in the nightstand under the liquid decanter,” she paused. “So are the negatives.”

Eve walked over and opened the drawer. She grinned wide. “There it is.” She swirled around. “Why did you help me?”

“Oh, didn’t I tell you? I’m Glenda D’Goodwrench-Jackson’s assistant, Matilda. “Now Eve you really should be more discreet in the future. Make sure nothing like this ever happens again. Come on I’ll walk you to your car,” she smiled. “You must leave before Xavier wakes up and wants to finish what he started.”

A few minutes later Eve stood at her car.

Matilda watched as Eve’s eyes sparkled. “I don’t know how to thank you Matilda,” she said giving the small woman a hug.

Matilda watched as Eve drove away.

A laughing voice buzzed the air and cleared its throat. “Oh assistant of mine. Didn’t you forget something?”

“Hmmmm Oh yeah, Eve, I can’t stop Malak from discovering that you’d been here,” Matilda yelled out as Eve’s car drove away.

The chilly night air whipped.

“Oh dear me,” Matilda said shaking her head. “Do you think she heard me?”

“Hump...Hump…Hump. My assistant you have much to learn,” Glenda said as her eyes sparkled with a strange iridescent light. “No….No….I don’t think she heard you. But she’ll soon discover what she needs to know.”

Matilda cleared her throat. “I just hope everything will be okay between Eve and Malak. I hope I didn’t mess things up.”

Glenda smiled wide. Her white teeth gleamed in the moon light. “She is still wearing the pendant Malak gave her. That is good.”

Why?” Matilda asked.

“Because true love never fades and because she is protected by the angels as long as she wears the pendant. I would not fear for Eve.”

“But Glenda what about your love potion,” puzzled Matilda asked.

“Come along Matilda, I can’t tell you everything. Wait and see what happens between the two young lovers.”

What do you need to start writing your novel?

What do you need to start writing your novel?

{I’ll be brief, but you can reach each subject to obtain more information.}

• Subject - A simple brief period in time –where your story takes place.

• Characters

• A Plot

• Dialogue and action. This moves your story forward.

• One view point (point of view)

• A fast-paced, grab your readers attention beginning

• A Middle

• A Strong Ending that makes your reader feel satisfied the story was complete and had understanding.

Next begin writing your Novel.

How do you start? Find your jumping off place. What is a jumping off place? The beginning of a novel. Need examples? Just take a look at the opening chapters of a few of the bestselling novels out there, to see samples of “what grabs the reader’s attention.” And then write you own jumping off place. Yours will be better, fresher, and IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Remember you HAVE A Writer’s Mind. Start writing.

You are far more than you think you are! You are a writer!

What advice would you offer to aspiring writers?


Then never stop believing in yourself.

Next I would say always listen to the voice within.

It is your number one fan and keep pushing yourself to completion of your novel.

Creole Rice

Yeah Good Creole Rice!

1 quart of Boiling Water

1 Cup Basmati or Jasmine Rice

2 Fresh Bay Leaves (Yeah you can use dried whole bay leaves)

1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt

Lil butter to taste....

Bring the water to a boil with the Bay leaves.

Add the salt, stir. Next stir in rice. Don't agitate the rice by stirring too much!

Let it come to a boil, cover yo' pot with a lid lower/BRING DOWN THE HEAT - LO/MED.

Cook for about 11-15 minutes.

Check for tenderness with a bite - (a bite feel is not a crunch sound.)

When it’s tender, drain if needed, pluck out the bay leaves, and serve.

What's the most blatant lie you've ever told?

My Answer:

Not admitting that I was a writer and how much I loved writing.

When the person asked me if I was a writer.

I shook my head, and I lied, and said no.

Worst part of it…..At the time I had published my first book

and didn’t know the person had brought a copy.

Hmmm what webs we weave when we deceive….Our self.

Whew! What News! What Gossip! What Facts! Oh the business of self-publishing looks better and better….Read on!

Oh the business of self-publishing looks better and better….Read on!

First Delilah said. Then Steven Said and then….. Well check out the article!

The conversation went something like this........Delilah said

"DELILAH: The attitude, which I admire you for publicly expressing, needs to trickle down to the rest of your staff and business practices. Because when I contacted Kensington a few weeks ago, they told me a.) I couldn’t see the Scribd contract b.) I couldn’t be given any other contract details other than that I would be paid my regular royalties. I would hope I’m getting my FULL royalties given I gave you the rights to do so..........

Then Steven said something like this...... STEVEN: *You are telling everyone that you need lawyers and auditors to get answers. That is simply not true. If you or any author has a question about a royalty statement we are happy to provide answers without you having to hire an experts that will cost you money.*
