And while we wait…..

Hi, All. Welcome back.

Here’s hoping that everyone is handling this Covid 19 pandemic with optimism. It’s probably the worst nightmare any of us have had to endure, and may it be the last. In the meantime, keep your spirits high, your six foot safe zone and your toilet paper under lock and key. Like every other plague to befall us, we’re a stout and stalwart people. We’ll come out this a little more tolerant, a little more appreciative of the things we once took for granted and, hopefully, more caring of our fellow man.

I, thankfully, am on the mend from yet another in a never ending array of beatings my wife has inflicted upon me. She doesn’t handle quarantines well. I know I’ll never make her coffee too strong again. I tease her unmercifully, but she’s probably the only woman alive who would tolerate me.

In truth, I’d like to offer Kudos of the highest and most respectful nature to my nurse wife and all the other nurses, doctors, hospital staff, EMS and everyone else out there dealing with this nightmare on the front lines. These wonderful people truly are heroes and they deserve our utmost respect and praise.

Well, I’m still waiting, somewhat patiently, for the editing and proof reading to be finished for The Island of His Dreams. I promise it’ll be worth the wait. It’s like being at the eight and a half month mark during pregnancy where your wife is getting really cranky and anxious, her ankles are swollen to the point of bursting and you couldn’t say anything right if you were reading romantic sonnets. I can’t wait for this baby to be born.

I haven’t been completely slacking during our quarantine. I’ve kept the keys on my laptop smoking. I have the sequel to The Island of his Dreams well underway, and I just had a long, short story published on Literotica. You can find it here: https://www.literotica.com/s/a-sea-of-heartache

If you have a chance to read it, please leave any comments, good or bad, either here or on the Literotica page and let me know your thoughts..

Well, back to that strange and twisted world that is my mind. Keep your heads held high, People. The light at the end of the tunnel is finally visible. We may never be the same after this nightmare is over, but the world will turn again and some semblance of normalcy will return.

Until next time, I wish you peace, love and happiness.

A New Day Dawning

For those of you who’ve stuck by me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I’ve been doing 120 in the fast lane for the last few years, in a good way, but that has curtailed my writing passion considerably.

For you fans of The Paramedic series, the final book will be coming out within the next couple of weeks. I’m sorry it’s taken so long to bring to press, but, well, see the above. However, I promise it’ll be worth the wait. Follow Doc, Nancy, Butch, Mike and the….well, I’ll let the book fill in the details.

Also on the horizon, two new, totally different books will be rolling off the presses at Danby Mountain Press. Both of which I’m extremely proud of and I believe you will enjoy. More on those soon.

I was asked a funny question the other day that took me aback for a moment. A dear friend asked me, first, why I wrote erotica. With the exception of The Tenderfoot’s Guide and Born Bent Over, The Paramedic series, as well as the new books coming out are erotica.

I first explained the difference between erotica and smut. Not that I begrudge those who write smut. If that’s what you feel inside, have a ball. We do still have a first amendment in this country and there are a whole lot of readers who read and enjoy smut and will admit it. There are scores more who read it and prefer to keep that little tidbit to themselves. Frankly, if it doesn’t involve minors or barnyard animals, write and read away.

All of my erotica revolves around loving relationships, caring people and, at least in my humble opinion, has a plot. I have always been of the opinion that adding explicit love scenes between consenting adults just adds a higher level of intimacy to the story and makes the reader that much more familiar with the character. Again, just my humble opinion. I’ve been called sappy at times. I guess I am. I cry at old movies, certain songs, weddings and whenever the mortgage bill comes in the mail.

I believe I’m a kindred spirit with a lover’s soul. Must be my Italian heritage. Nothing has me grabbing for a tissue faster than a mushy love story.

Please bear with me for just a short time more. I believe you’ll be pleased with the upcoming additions to our book catalog.

And for those of you who read and commented on But for Lisa’s Voice, I want to thank you. While I did respond to your wonderful comments, I’d like to thank you again. That was one of those that has a special place in my heart for numerous reasons.

Until next time, I wish you all much peace and happiness.

God Bless!
