I Have a BLOG???

Yes. I suck. And not in a good way. I’ve been on a bit of a social media hiatus. I’ve repossessed all my solo books except one category length ( if you haven’t read Light a Candle yet, WHY NOT? 😢), and two shorts, (C’mon. EVERYONE likes a porny Santa and a sexy drag queen!). I have stuff “in the works” (by which I mean I have a bunch of outlines, partial outlines, and grandiose ideas that are gathering dust), and I really haven’t felt much like an author.

And, God help me, I’ve been in school. Grad classes. Kill. Me. NOW.

But.

I’m starting to seriously tinker with my parts of Masks: Shadows & Kink, book 2, and I know Lex is looking at hers, too. And I’m seriously looking at a collaboration with a new partner; one I’m pretty excited about, when I’m not overwhelmed with school work. (Five assignments this week. FIVE. And that doesn’t count the three chapters and six articles worth of reading!)

Anyway.

I’m trying to get my author on, so just maybe I can manage to get something out before 2020!

In the meantime – I have this awesome picture of Gandalf with his fauxhawk, and #1 Sis says with the right caption, it could go viral. Clearly *I* have nada in the creativity department going on, so I thought I’d toss it out to the peanut gallery.

Send me your meme via email to vj.summers@yahoo.com. I’ll put my favorites  (I wanna say 5, but I’m not sure if 5 people will even read this 😢) and have a vote. The winner will get their choice of either an e-copy of my naughty December 26th story Santa Claus is Coming or a character named after them in my next book.

I’m on my way Up North to get my Bliss on, and I’ll be coming back to an avalanche of home work, so let’s say I’ll post the pics for voting Monday, and the winner next Friday.

And here he is… My bee-you-ti-full boy!

Do your worst!

Winner #1 – Santa Claus is COMING!

SantaClausIsComing_VJSummersThis one was tough! I mean, I’m reading your traditions and getting all teary… Sheesh! Luckily, I put the onus on Old Dude, and the man is guided by his stomach. So, for the copy of Santa Claus is Coming – out 12/15,  Old Dude insists on Retta’s fudge recipe! Which I’m re-posting here:

HEALTHY HEART FUDGE

2 tablespoons lowfat Butter
2/3 Cup evaporated skim milk
2½ cups Sugar
12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips
2½ ounce baby food prunes
7 ounce jar marshmallow cream
½ cup chopped walnuts

Line a 13 x 9 inch pan with waxed paper and set aside. In a large saucepan, melt Butter. Stir in milk and sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat and gradually stir in chocolate chips Add prunes, marshmallow cream, walnuts and vanilla. Pour into pan and chill. Cut into 48 pieces when firm. Yields 48 pieces
105 calories per piece with nuts 3Grams fat without nuts 2.5 per piece

So, Retta, I’m gonna try and hunt you down via email, but if you don’t hear from me by Sunday, when the book is out, STALK ME!!!

Congratulations, and thanks to all of you who participated. I’m gonna be a cooking fool for the next two weeks – all while watching A Christmas Story!

Hey, Chickie!

hop badge 2013Yes, I’m late. I suck. Actually, blame the cat. She’s my alarm clock and for the first time in weeks (including the holiday weekend, thank you very much) she let me sleep past 5 AM! Contrary beast!

BUT I’m up and functional now, and so is the Random Chaos Generator. It’s a good thing I have a RCG, too. I could NEVER have picked just one comment on my own. Y’all rock!

Alas, there can be only one (heh, heh), and for *this* hop, that one is chickie434!  Look for an email from me sometime today. Thanks to everyone who participated! You’re helping make the world a better place!

And the Winner IS!

hop badge 2013Going to be announced tomorrow! Yes, I’ve sort of fallen down on the job of keeping up with comments, etc. for the Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia, so I’m going to choose my winner bright and early tomorrow morning and I’ll post the winner at 6 AM.

The prize?

  • A cool duct tape “violet” pen & VJ Summers mini-notebook
  • Awesome swag from my awesome publisher, Ellora’s Cave
  • A copy of Violet Summers’ out-of-print-never-gonna-be-available-in-this-incarnation-again m/m BDSM wax play story, “Velvet Memories.”

So, leave your comments! I’ll combine the comments from my 5/17 post and the comments from this post, and put them in the random-chaos-generator, and post the winner at the butt-crack of tomorrow morning!

Ya Say It’s Your BIRTHDAY!

It’s MY Birthday, too!

For real!

And to celebrate, I’m giving one lucky commenter a copy of my new Ellora’s Cave release, Birthday Licks! Birthday Licks is the prequel to Melting, and is live and ready for your reading pleasure at Ellora’s Cave, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble!

birthdaylicks_msrHere’s the blurb:

What happens when an untrained submissive drops into the lap of a Dom who isn’t looking for more than a hook-up? Every “Happily Ever After” has to start somewhere. Master Thomas and his beautiful submissive Ryan are rock solid and completely committed—now—but things weren’t always so smooth. Before Thomas and Ryan could get to their Melting point, Thomas had to light the candles and Ryan had to take his Birthday Licks.

And you can find the excerpt HERE. (Click on the little magnifying glass on the cover.)

Also, don’t forget that our Christmas special edition, Mistletoe and Velvet Ice, is available for just ten more days at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords (remember to turn your filter off for the spicy stuff – it’s in the top right corner).

All you have to do to win is leave me a comment with what you’d like to see Thomas and Ryan try next – we saw ’em play with hot wax in Melting, Ryan gets his birthday spanking in Birthday Licks, and there’s a MS floating around out there involving contracts and nipple clamps, too. So what else would you like to see the guys get, er, up to?

I’ll take comments until 12:01 AM on December 30th, then a random generator will pull the winning name out of the proverbial electronic hat. Thanks for playing – and for feeding my plot bunnies!
