Burn You Baby (Speakeasy #85)

You know, I don’t even remember his name-
And I’m okay with that.
I mean, why bother with pretences?
Let’s all deal in Fact.
I’m sure he won’t remember me,
Next month, or next weekend,
This flame is only for tonight
So I’ll keep kissing and just pretend.

Massive congratulations to Silvia Paoletta and Francesca Poggi on the launch of their new company Dark World Books.

You know, it has been one of those weeks when I have neglected almost all of my writing duties. My blog, my poor, sweet, neglected blog ~ I am sorry. I have been working hard to try and make a couple of projects come together. I have a couple of stories I'm working on, one of which is for the anthology which will feature my epic poem, The Sorcerer. I'm working on another story, one a that I think will appeal to Jackdaw fans and a certain Miss Toal.

I am also working on getting The Ferryman's Wife back up and available on Amazon. Hopefully it shouldn't be too long before everything is back to normal. I'll be on again soon - probably sooner than you think.

The publishing company that released The Ferryman's Wife has folded. Although my book is still available to buy, I shall be looking to re-release it with another publisher. I wasn't happy with how it had been edited so I'm seeing this as an opportunity as opposed to a set back. It gives me a chance to right some wrongs and to start fresh.  In the meantime, I shall still be working on Book 2 as well as other, smaller projects. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed writing poetry, for example. I've never felt confident in writing short stories, maybe I should work on that too? Either way, I am not going away. To all of you who enjoy my work, thank you for your continued support.

Autumns Orchard (Speakeasy #82)

In Autumns orchard, branches burden bear,

Bursting to give the gifts they wish to share.

Sweet are the fruits so ripe, ready and round,

Full and juicy, maturity abound.

To touch, to taste, perchance to take a bite!

Smooth skin, softness within, a sheer delight!

Titillating in mouth on tongue, and lips,

The nectar flows and down the chin it drips.

Licking as juice sticking to fingers wet.

Deliciousness as good as it can get.
