Aubree is infatuated with two men, Max and Ryan. The two former Marines have been her close friends ever since she made her first misguided attempt at joining their kickboxing classes. When the pair invites her to join them at a weekend party thrown by Drew, a famous MMA champion, she has no idea what they have in mind. After spending one hot ménage night with the pair, Aubree learns the men’s intentions are not all about her. Feeling betrayed, Aubree turns to Drew who is also tugging at her heart. She must choose between the two men who have been the center of her fantasies, and the one man who could make all her dreams come true.

Excerpt:

 

Leaning against the cool wood of the hotel room door, she met his stare trying hard not to smile like an idiot.

“This was fun.”

Drew’s eyes flashed. “If you ask nicely, I’ll let you take me to bed.”

She shook her head at his antics. “What if I’m not feeling especially nice?”

Drew brushed his hand over her hip. “You’re right. You do feel naughty,” he agreed. Holding her stare, he bent closer, giving her time to protest his advance. The door opened at Aubree’s back. If she hadn’t hit the solid wall of Max’s chest, she might have ended up sprawled across the floor. Tilting back her head, she took note of the angry expression on Max’s face before switching her gaze back to Drew. His eyes danced with humor as he mouthed, “Denied,” and Aubree slapped her hand over her mouth to smother her giggles.

“Have a nice night, Drew.” Drew ignored Max’s snarling words.

“May I see you again?”

“I’d like that,” she answered without hesitation. Max growled. At the sound, Drew flashed him a cocky grin before giving her a wicked version of it and turning away. As soon as he moved out of the doorway, Max slammed it closed, focusing his ire on her. She’d never seen him truly angry before now. She laughed nervously.

“Are you drunk?”

“No,” she answered, incredulous. “I’ve had two glasses of champagne all night.”

“Your face is flushed.”

Aubree shrugged. “I’m happy. I had a good time.”

Max prowled toward her. The hard set of his jaw caused a flutter of desire to run through her. “Did you forget who you came here with?”

Unable to think of a single retort, she shrugged again. “I’m young and single. Why shouldn’t I enjoy myself?”

Max’s eyes flashed dangerously. His tone had a bite to it when he spoke. “You are not single.”

Doris is on tour.

Close-Call-by-Eloise-March-750

I am excited today to have Doris on the blog with a spot of advice, to show you just what all the fuss is about and just who Doris is. Don’t be afraid, she doesn’t bite and it has been proven beyond scientific fact she has no teeth, but her wit is sharp and she does tend to rip into you if you stray away from being true to yourself.

With Valentine’s Day behind us and the lonely hearts club back to drinking wine from a box or perhaps, hitting the clubs again, there are still a lot of gals trying to figure out a way to keep their dignity intact and still find a man who excites them and will make them happy throughout their lives…or at least have a serious and stable relationship with! Maybe even those whose glitterific relationship has lost some of it’s shine needs a bit of a boost!

Are you game? We also will be having a live interview with the Cabin Goddess, Kriss (she is also one of the head Fairies here), and a central Facebook event page where you can post questions for Doris throughout the tour, get updates and links during the tour and ask more info on the novella! Everyone in the know has been itching to see this book get everywhere and in have people join them in reading it and laughing just as hard as they did! You won’t even need cream afterwards.. perhaps a glass of wine and a new boyfriend, but not any cream!

ask-Doris-title

Me: Dear Doris, what is your favourite hobby?

Doris: I love to relax on the couch and listen to the television. I prefer family dramas because I can’t see the television, so action movies aren’t really suitable. Something you humans don’t know is that the penises and vaginas of the characters on television talk too. They like to get in on the action and will say things to make fun of what’s going on upstairs, or they act too, making it even more exciting.

special

My review

Talking vaginas, yes you heard me right. Now you might think this an X-rated book or extremely naughty, well it is a tiny bit naughty, but in no way X-rated.

It is about Jemma who is single and desperately trying to find the right one while dealing with friends and family, some of which you love and some you do not.

In between looking for prince charming in nightclubs, we get an inside view, or you might say a down under view of how life is for Jemma’s vagina named Doris and her vagina friends. I’m still trying to recover from laughing my butt of (I wish), the description of the troubles poor Doris goes through is absolutely hilarious.

This is a well-written story that you can’t stop reading once you have begun, so hurry up and get your copy.

A quote I love:
Doris was reminded of the movie Alien: in the space between a woman’s legs, no one can hear you scream…

Close Call: A Doris & Jemma Vadgeventure

Close-Call-3D-450Close Call is the first instalment of “A Doris & Jemma Vageventure” series.

Think Bridget Jones Diary and The Vagina Monologues.

Twenty-two-year-old Jemma can’t seem to get her life in order. Her track record with men stinks, she constantly worries about getting fat and ending up a spinster at thirty. And to top it off, she has to be a bridesmaid at her most-hated cousin’s wedding. She feels like her life is over, until Doris decides to help out. Who’s Doris? Doris is Jemma’s vagina and she thinks more of Jemma than her own brain does. Doris is on a mission to save Jemma from herself, but is the task too much for one vagina to handle?

Meet Eloise March aka Eloise March

Dionne Lister - 2

Eloise March is a woman who laughs at her own jokes, swears way too much and breaks any new diet by lunchtime on the day she starts. She believes in women’s equality, and all equality for that matter, and hopes the things she writes touch people in a positive way, and make them think about how they can create a better society for themselves and others.

In her spare time, she enjoys living as her alter ego, Dionne Lister — a suspense and YA fantasy author who is way too embarrassed to talk about vaginas. She likes spending time as Dionne because Dionne has an awesome family, wonderful friends and a cat called Lily, oh, and she has great hair.

If you’re looking for Eloise, or any information about future books in the Doris & Jemma Vadgeventure series, you can visit Dionne’s website, where Eloise has been lucky enough to get her own page http://www.dionnelisterwriter.com. If you’re looking for a chat, you can find Ms. March on Twitter.

Happy (recently invented by me) Poetry Day!

That’s right folks! Today we’re going to celebrate something that truly matters in today’s world. We’re going to, once again, bring the focus back to poetry! I’m not trying to step on Valentine’s Day’s toes…well maybe I am…I’m just trying to help out some fellow poets and possibly get more people to turn to poetry every now and then.

This “holiday” is normally filled with chocolate and cards that have semi-meaningful verse written within them. There’s nothing evil about this, but here’s a great idea if you still need to run to the store for a card…make one! Write what you feel about your love interest with your own words (even if it sounds bad, it’ll be from the heart)! That’s what I did last year.

A year ago today, I published a simple poem called I WouldYou’ll find it…

Words

Can words do justice
to a snowy field bathed
in moonlight?

Can the starlight
of each flake
be conveyed with
d-i-a-m-o-n-d?

What are words
when representing beauty?
Is there an image rebuilt
from a poem’s lines?

I cannot paint you
a picture.
I cannot hand you
last winter’s snow.
But I’ll show you
what I know,
through my words.

In your eyes
I see that field:
snowy, glowing
with silver light;
diamonds shimmering,
snowflakes fluttering down.

It’s the beauty that I see,

“Chained by Desire” release tour.

Blurb:

Not good enough for heaven but not bad enough to burn, Kylie has a slight problem. She’s dead and trapped between the realms.

Left with no options, she follows Detective Liam Stone on the hunt for her killer. Death has left Kylie invisible but does nothing to dampen her desire for the sexy detective. Instead, it  gives her the freedom to do as she pleases with his body, and what a delicious body it is.

Liam’s determined to solve Kylie’s case but as the clues uncover an underground world of demonic torture and pacts, Liam must face his own secrets or the flames of passion won’t be the only ones the couple will have to face.

Inside Scoop: Parts of this tale are graphically violent, but other parts might leave you drooling for a ghost or a demon of your own. Look out for the brief but hot F/F scenes in the bedroom and the shower.

A Romantica® horror erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

~

Excerpt: 

She died on this corner. It seemed strange it would be right here where she caught the bus each morning and evening. She couldn’t recall why she had been there at that exact time but it didn’t change the outcome. She was dead.

She had been brought up to believe things would be different when this day came. There would be light, trumpets…peace. Kylie had none of those things. Instead, she stood looking down at her lifeless body in shock. Maybe this is what happens when you’re murdered. That thought lingered on the outer rim of her disbelief.

“At least my nails still look good,” she said tilting her head to get a better look at the rounded pink tips she’d gotten done the day before. At her statement, the man hovering over her empty shell lifted her hand from the ground and inspected her nails.

“It doesn’t look as if she tried to defend herself.”

No shit Sherlock, she thought with a roll of her eyes. She craned her neck attempting to get a better look at the man’s face. He was big and rugged looking, as if he hadn’t shaved in at least a week. The beginnings of a dark beard covered his chin but in a harsh contrast to his dark hair, his eyes were a light blue almost exactly the same shade as the sky. He was a sexy one she realized with a pang of regret for the life she had lost.

“Thank God I wore my good panties.”

He lifted her skirt. “Underwear’s still in place. She doesn’t appear to have been raped.”

“Put that down you dirty little bastard. Sheesh! Who is this guy?” He dropped the material and smoothed it down over her knees. It was a sad day when a girl ended up murdered on a street corner and couldn’t even hold onto her modesty afterward. Damn, why hadn’t someone as sexy as him wanted to check out her girly bits while she’d still been able to enjoy it? Typical.

Navigating the World of E-Book Publishing by Deena Rae Schoenfeldt #EBBB

Thanks to Helle for letting me hijack the site for a very special announcement.

Every year, thousands of people participate in NaNoWriMo, So You Think You Can Write, and other writing competitions. Why is there such an interest in these contests? Because deep down, everyone has a story to tell —a memoir, romance, science fiction tale of other worlds or alternate civilizations, or even a how-to manual—everyone has a story. I am no different except for the fact that I don’t have the time to do NaNo or SYTYCW.

What I do have time for is researching different trends and changes that affect my clients. Lots of research, lots of reading and lots of time assimilating that information into bite-size morsels for my clients and followers. Some of this information I have included in a book that I have coming out January 13, 2014.

You are probably thinking “Why would I care that you are publishing a book?” The answer is simple, maybe you won’t care, but if you are considering jumping into the indie world of publishing you should care. Now you probably are thinking “Who are you?” Me, I am just someone who grew up surrounded by those in the publishing industry, I have done work for authors and publishers directly —everything from just transcribing manuscripts to promotion to the formatting of digital e-books. I read voraciously, I review sporadically and I host two podcasts about authors, reading, writing and publishing.

Yeah, I know a little something about e-publishing in today’s world but I don’t pretend to have all the answers and I won’t try to come off as a know it all like some of those people that state their opinion as fact. In short, I am not a stuffed-shirt, puffed up with my own self-importance. BUT, chances are if you are or have ever thought about publishing something independently and read something about it, or are on Twitter you have seen some of my handy-work.

So, if you are serious about publishing your own work, or just kicking the idea around, be on the look out for my book, Navigating The World Of E-Book Publishing, available January 13, exclusively on Amazon. My contact methods are below, feel free to stalk me that way or even join my mailing list for a special announcement and sale opportunities.

Who I Am

E-BookBuilders is the online alias of Deena Rae. I was born and raised in Texas — home of bluebonnets, boots, beef and big hair — into a family that was in the printing and publishing industries. My father was a computer programmer for major newspapers when the equipment took up whole rooms and my mother has been a publisher for almost 30 years — trying, unsuccessfully, to bring me into the family business. I have been told I am a second-generation genetically perfected super-nerd.

I was happily living my life, having three third-generation genetically perfected super-nerds myself, but then through a series of events (unfortunate and fortunate), I officially joined The Book Connection — my mother’s publishing and packaging company — as the Digital Director, to create the e-publishing division in 2011. My computer skills, willingness to help authors, love of literature, no-nonsense attitude and quick wit has helped shepherd many authors through the maze of digital publishing.

Through my work with E-BookBuilders, I have been able to meet authors and writers from all over the world and in every genre imaginable. My wit, obscure sense of humor, awareness of the absurd, and a love of literature all which led to the creation of Bluebonnets, Bagpipes and Books, the NSFW publishing discussion podcast I produce and host with Janet Wrenn and Peter Burnett. My no-nonsense attitude makes for some hilarious discussions and plenty of “Oh my God, did she really just say that?” moments. Sometimes it is as if there is no filter between my brain and mouth. But if I like you I try to be nice — sometimes. I also have a safe-for-everyone author interview show, B3‘s Bookworm. You can find me most hours of everyday attached to my computer either researching, tweeting on the 6 accounts I maintain, posting on my different Facebook timelines and pages, coding e-books for my fabulous friends/clients or with my nose buried in my Kindle reading.

So, if you are serious about publishing your own work, or just kicking the idea around, be on the look out for my book, Navigating the World of E-Book Publishing, available January 13, exclusively on Amazon. My contact methods are below, feel free to stalk me that way or even join my mailing list for a special announcement and sale opportunites.
