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!

NaNo Week 2

Okay, so I had this awesome, content rich post… and my phone rang, and it ALL went away.

So, I’ll settle for, NaNo was better this week, though real life took up a significant chunk of writing time.

I was gonna talk about adventures at the vet – #2 kitty’s boo-boo is healed and it looks like the lymphoma treatment is working, and #3 cat is FINALLY gaining weight. There’s waaaaay more to it – those are the highlights.

So, I’ll leave you with sexy guy w kitteh. Cuz you can never have enough beautiful men, or adorable kittens!

NaNo Day 1.5 -ManCandy

So, I had a very lofty goal, but I fell so far short of it I’m not even going to say what it was, lol. I blame it on the World Series. I was really pulling for the Mets so we’d get at least one more game, and KC could take it at home. Ah, well. Half a cup is better than none, right?

As for NaNo, I got 506 words – and, to my horror, my porny little m/m erotic story grew a PLOT, and LAYERS, and MULTI-FUCKING-FACETED CHARACTERS! What the everloving fuck???

So, here’s my current inspiration picture (and the placeholder for my novel cover) AND your ManCandy:

And, for anyone who’d like to be a writing buddy, my NaNo name is the VERY original VJ Summers, lol.

Happy writing!

Paging VJ Summers!

Yes. I vanished. And I was *very* aware of it.

No excuses, but here’s my last two weeks:

  • The flu. I won’t elaborate other than to say that for a week I wanted to DIE.
  • Mama Drama. Apparently Advanced Directives only count when the nurse *reads* them. (Mom’s fine – just Villa seems to be making up reasons to transport her to the hospital when A) there’s no reason and B) it’s expressly forbidden in her AD. So frustrating! FOUR calls in five weeks, for Pete’s sake!)
  • Sick kitty! And not Gandalf for a change! #2 kitty, Velcro, managed to get swatted in the face, and the wound on her cheek festered. Bleck. So after a week of finding the wound (black fur – not easy to see through. We though it was an eye infection for a week!), getting her to the vet, and now doing the home treatments (God help me), I’ve lost a good couple hours a day regularly. Ugh!)

So, blogging sorta slipped by the wayside. As yet another apology, here’s an extended ManCandy, Friday Guilt Edition. Enjoy!

His job is to lock me to the computer, cuz I *need* to be writing MOAR!10424982_1460956934217260_3475098635689847799_n 20120305-041503Their job is inspiration,  because I’m writing BDSM!

Have a fantastic Halloween weekend!

ManCandy: The Blood Rose Edition!

Inspirational eyecandy as I finish up the first Blood Rose story (coming from Changeling in November).

ManCandy!

I’ve been a bit absent lately, here & on Facebook. Mom gave us a scare, and the adrenaline crash kind of wrecked me. I wonder if that will ever stop – the flood of adrenaline when my phone rings & Bortz comes up on the ID.

ANYWAY… I didn’t want to skip ManCandy, & I should have a W3 this week. Also, I have a flashback 2nd Edition book coming soon! So hopefully you’ll see a bit more of me!

Now, here’s what you were waiting for, lol.

Flashback Friday

With all the “stuff” that happened this year, it’s been easy to forget that in order to be an author… I have to WRITE. Ha. Recently a couple of author/editor friends I respect enormously reminded me that I don’t suck as an author. Then I got a truly fantastic reader review of Light a Candle on ARe. *Then* I got the opportunity to sign a brand spanking new contract with Changeling Press for a “fun” (okay, it’s increasingly intense BDSM type fun) paranormal series, AND the kind of warm welcome back that sorta makes me feel like I don’t *entirely* suck as an artist and human being.

So, for Flashback Friday (after that massive info dump, lol), I’m sharing the release later this month of the 2nd edition of Willa’s Master, a het BDSM Changeling Hot Flash.

I’m also sharing a couple of awards nominations Sierra and I got. It’s been a while, and I’d honestly forgotten them. Maybe with some new wind beneath my wings, I can get back there, yeah?
