He Said, She Said – Fictional Friends: Will The Real Valentino Please Stand Up? Day 5

Valent's-HMcQueenValent is an archer for Clan McLeod, who’s grown up as an orphan, raised by an old man in a cottage in the forest. He’s a little stuffy if you asked me so I sent a proxy to translate questions for me. I am a little forward with blue hair, tattoos, sexual revolution–yeah I’m still going through that–I knew none of that would work with Valent who is from Medieval times. The only thing he and I have in common is that we both grew up in a place where it’s okay to pop a squat wherever you need to to relieve yourself; I’m real backwoods. I grew up rural–cray cray rural. Squeal like a pig!Blog-Separater-Rawr Continue Reading

He Said, She Said – Fictional Friends: Will The Real Valentino Please Stand Up? Day 4

Vin's-JLScott

Vin Jackson is a man of few words, of course it doesn’t take a lot of words to get a good job done well and this job only had 14 Valentine Questions to whet your whistle. This is that sexy, slightly inaccessible guy who is a rock when you need him but rough around the edges. He’s hard to read and doesn’t give away much so don’t think this questionnaire is going to give you much insight so sorry babes, you’re going to have to read Undercovers to get a pulse on him. FBI Agents don’t go down easy, I did my best. Blog-Separater-Rawr Continue Reading

Be My Guest: Amber Belldene Talks About Writing

Amber-Belldene---Blood-VineAt 38.5 weeks gestation, my twins were estimated to weigh upward of 8 pounds each and baby boy wouldn’t keep his head down. So I had a c-section.

I have some ambivalence about missing out on labor, as if that painful birthing is the essence of motherhood. That’s hogwash, of course, as all adoptive mothers will say. But its one of the many idealizations we internalize about parenting, and which we can use to abuse ourselves about whether we are doing it right.

Motherhood (and fatherhood) is a messy, creative, profound, painful, joyous boundary exploding chaos, and the birthing is only one moment, crystalizing the beautiful blood bath that brings new life. Continue Reading

Wine Pairing for the Blood Vine Series

By Amber Belldene

On our fancier dates nights, my husband and I love to go out to the restaurants in San Francisco that have those great prix fixe menus.  Three courses for $35, and for an extra $20, the wine pairing.  I like it because I would normally never order an appetizer, entree, dessert, and three half-glasses of wine.  And when he orders three different things, then we get to taste a lot from the menu. *Wanders off in a salivating reverie while recalling a particularly delicious salmon filet.*

And, I’m back! So, I thought it would be fun to give you my food and wine pairing for the Blood Vine series! Continue Reading

He Said, She Said – Fictional Friends: Getting to Know the Dirt About Fallen Fourth Three! (Part 3)

CHARACTER-INTERVIEW

I had a few weeks where I was dealing with some anonymous threats about posting what some people want to call ‘questionable’ information about the Fallen Crest King and Queen and the Second King… I would never make up this stuff and I think if you know these people you can clearly see for yourself the veracity of their character in these questionnaires so I have one thing to say to you haters, “Get fucked!”

I have done nothing at all wrong in befriending Sam, sending her a small getting-to-know-you email, wisely anticipating a the less than forthright answers from Sam, Logan and Mason and ensuring that my job be done by looking out for Sam and sending a Trojan horse that triggers a videostream directly from her laptop cam to a site that I can view. You–strangely, overreactionary–peeps blowing up my social media calling me a stalker are failing to realize that this stuff is available all over the internet. If it were really THAT illegal and THAT wrong someone would have written Facebook or Google and someone would have done something about it, like, right away. It’s still there so it’s okay to use it and I did it to show Sam, Logan and Mason in their home environment–you know just like those documentary people do ALL the time and no one EVER bitches when scientists go and live with people who eat other people or castrate women. No one ever looks at the documentarist as bad for what they are doing!

Give me a FREAKIN’ break!

He Said, She Said – Fictional Friends: Getting to Know the Dirt About Fallen Fourth Three! Part 2

CHARACTER-INTERVIEW
Time for part 2 of my 4 part, ‘Getting to Know You Questionnaire’ with the Fallen Crest Three or Fallen Four Three… or maybe I should just stick with calling them Sam, Mason and Logan. Today is Sam’s Four Threes Portion! This is four questions with three answers. I gave the same questions to all three of them and of course what I got back was not enough to diagram a sentence, but thanks to my handy dandy email attachment bug that allowed me to access their webcam and see and hear their conversation, I got to hear the three of them discuss their answers! #SQUEEE!

This is Sam’s and I have to admit that she is more girly girl on the inside when she was divulging her real answers with Logan and Mason than the word association answers she replied to me in email. I already said in the first post how disappointed I was about this… I’ve given it thought and she just doesn’t KNOW me yet and this is the perfect time for her to see she can trust me with her heart! I am showing her with this post that she can BE HERSELF in a safe place with me and I will ALWAYS have her back! Sam, me and you, sister of my heart! You and me, Besties! #BFFS4EVAH

Be My Guest – Lemonade Ladies Here To Offer Authors Excellent Care!

Make-Lemonade-Banner

A Note from the Lemonade Ladies to Authors:

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade! But first you’ve got to squeeze them and zest them and add just the right amount of sugar… Just when you’ve got the mixture absolutely perfect, some bossy know-it-all comes along and tells you it tastes bad.

That’s the experience a lot of authors expect when they approach an editor – their hard-won words being heartlessly picked over, criticized and judged. Continue Reading
