Saturday Status 8/16/14

Wel­come! What an awful week news-wise. I’m still bro­ken up about Robin Williams’ pass­ing. You know how there’s a small hand­ful of celebri­ties that feel like they’re “yours”? Like no one under­stands them or appre­ci­ates them like you do? Robin was one of those guys for me. He remind­ed me a bit of my broth­er, a bit of my father, and a bit of sev­er­al favorite uncles all put togeth­er. I’ll miss him for a long long time.

Work in Progress News ~ Still work­ing on Jack­son. I didn’t get a whole lot done this week though. I think my muse is on an extend­ed vaca­tion. I have no excuse, so I won’t even both­er try­ing to rea­son why. sigh At what point do I have to call myself a “For­mer Author”?

Favorite Song of the Week ~ AKNU. Three broth­ers. What do you guys think?

What I’m read­ing ~ A new Cameron Dane book!
Ex-con David Joyn­er returns home know­ing he must atone for his past sins. Work­ing at an ani­mal shel­ter, David keeps his head down, des­per­ate to prove to a hos­tile town he’s a new man. The one time David looks up, he spots fel­low motel dweller Ben, and is ter­ri­fied by his attrac­tion to the man. David doesn’t want to feel any­thing. He can only dam­age what he loves. 
On a forced vaca­tion, PI Ben Evans accepts a job to tail a recent­ly released pris­on­er. What begins as an easy gig turns com­pli­cat­ed when Ben, a con­trolled man, can’t deny the pang of empa­thy he feels for his sub­ject, David. Ben can’t sup­press his aggres­sive sex­u­al desires when­ev­er he’s near David either. 
Repeat­ed­ly cross­ing paths, David and Ben do their best to fight their grow­ing attrac­tion. When pas­sion explodes, and secrets are revealed, both men have to con­quer inner demons in order to accept the oth­ers love. 
Some­one has turned the tables on David, though, stalk­ing him and leav­ing threat­en­ing notes. Will any­one believe David if he tells? And when David’s stalk­er rais­es the stakes, can Ben find the man who has become his world in time to save their love?

Josie?”

Hm?”

How do you feel?”

She stretched, then ran her hands down his arms until her fin­gers linked with his. “I feel great.”

Not hun­gover at all?” He brought their hands tighter around her, hug­ging her against his front.

My throat hurts, I must have been talk­ing too loud. A bit of a headache, but not too bad.”

That’s good, because I want to take you out.”

She was qui­et for so long, he start­ed to won­der if he’d blown it. No mat­ter, he’d do it again in a heart­beat.

Out?”

Yeah, you know. We could start with lunch…maybe some putt-putt golf.” He stroked the soft skin of her stom­ach. “I have three days off from work, and I know that you’re…you know…unobligated.”

I don’t know,” she rolled onto the mat­tress beside him and propped her­self on her elbows. “My mom­ma warned me about boys. They just want one thing.”

Did she warn you about fire­men?” He kissed the tip of her nose.

She gig­gled. “I know they han­dle some pow­er­ful hoses.”

Whadd'ya think?
