|I am a recently published author for Eternal Press/Damnation Books, LLc. My book, Teaching Between Midnight and Dawn was releases Aug 7th 2011 @ Eternal Press, Amazon, Fictionwise and a host of other retailers where ebooks and paperbacks are sold.
Arieanna’s life right now seemed nearly complete. Her career was soaring, she had a family who adored her, and her students loved her. Life was simple and uncomplicated. That is until she met Auron. Arieanna doesn’t know that Auron has been sent by a secret priesthood of Saint Cisadore, and is actually there to protect her, the descendant of Ast’ at all cost. His number one objective is to keep that book from entering the hands of the wrong people, in spite of the fact that it might cause his own death. Although exiled nearly two centuries ago, Auron knows that if that book gets to Jimmy Mann, all hell will break lose. Centuries of war will then spill onto a human battle ground, and the Council will do whatever it takes to keep that from happening. The legend says that Arieanna holds the key to the location of Ast’s infamous book of magick; the only problem is, is that she doesn’t know it yet...
“Okay now what? How the hell do you propose that we get to my car with wolves staking us out? My god, this sucks. I’m a junior high school teacher. This is the stuff that I tell my students don’t exist! Wolves don’t just eat people! I am not lil red riding hood!” I screeched looking out over my back yard.
“Those arena wolves luve, and we have to make a run for it. Since it’s a full moon, I obviously canna drive.” He stated grinning again as he put his hands up, and it was like all at once the stark handsomeness of his face hit me. He had shoulder length sable hair, and a very angular strong chin, hazel eyes, that were greener than any other color, thick dark brows, and what looked like a five o’clock shadow growing on his face. His body was ripped with toned muscles, and he had to be well over six feet. I also noticed that he spoke with a sort of British/Scot’s accent.
“Okay luve, just how do we do that? They will eat me alive before I ever reach it.” I mocked.
“That is why I shall be yer distraction. The minute that I jump this back fence they’ll take off after me, tis a smell thing. That gives ye ample enough time to chip wit it for the motor, then circle round and pick me up just beyond that point.” He countered pointing to some trees on the other side of the small bluff.
Great…just great. Terrace Drive was a bitch to navigate at night!
“Okay, but I betta make it to that car. Cuz if I don’t I swear, that I’ll come back and haunt cho ass for all eternity.” I retorted and his grin only widened.
“Ye will luve. Although the prospect of ye haunting me for all eternity I’m well up for, but let’s just leave that till later.” He teased, and then winked. “Are ye ready then?” He asked and I nodded. He suddenly grabbed me and kissed me full on the lips again. My face registered my shock.
“For good luck, not to mention I need some inspiration here. Off with ye then.” He grinned, then jumped over the rail.

Got an idea for a new Women’s Contemporary fiction book and wanna run it by my editor.
I was talking to a friend the other day, and she was telling me about this huge conundrum that she’s in. I thought that I would the scenario for a new book. Then I thought I would send it out, have you guys respond to it, and then whoever has the best answer, I’ll base the ending of the book on what they wrote back to me. You’ll get partial credit for the concept, be acknowledged at the end of the book for your contributions, and get some fame out of it lol.
However, there are some stipulations for answers:
. You Can Not answer in a Christian tone, (i.e, you’re goin to hell in gasoline draws, God is gonna punish you, or the Bible says blazay, blazay….)
2. She is NOT a hoe, so I won’t accept answers like that.
3. Give serious answers, on what you think she should do.
4. Whichever is the best answer I’m gonna use for the ending of the book.
My friend and I were having coffee the other day, and I asked how her love life was going. She started laughing hysterically, and then commenced to tell me about it. She’d been dating this older guy, (she’s 35) for over a year now, but they have absolutely nothing common. (Yes sometimes this is good, but others it can be a disaster, which is what they are.) They have nothing in common whatsoever.
My friend, we’ll just say Emma, is a progressive liberal-near socialist, and he’s a conservative. They have nothing in common, except sex, (here she says it is off the chain hahaha). The sex is amazing, but they can’t have a normal conversation without it turning into an argument. Yet, despite this craziness, s says that he is a very sweet person (I’ve met him a couple of times and other than his spews of bollix on social issues he seemed nice enough). He does anything to make her happy, but he won’t see anyone else’s views as valid. He constantly talks shite about anything other than his views or beliefs, like the fact that education is a rip off, professors are shysters ( here you know I wanted to punch him the f*** out!) but they have been together for a year and she loves him to some degree; (but I think it’s more that she’s comfortable, he’s dependable, and she feels like since she’s 35 she doesn’t want to get out there in the meat market of dating).
Well, she happened to be at starbucks getting coffee and some guy asked what she was ordering out of the blue, and she turned to see who it was, and she said she was like wow( I know, already an intro for a book lol, I just need to make him extra yummy lol). They started talking, and he asked her for coffee the following week.
She decided to go, and said that she had a blast.
Here in lies her problem; she found out that he was only 26 years old (hahahahaha! Yes, I feel like use and abuse him for all of us over 35 year old women!).
He is everything that she wants. He’s funny, caring, likes the things that she likes, is kewl wit her 12 year old son, notices things, (like she got a hair cut, lost weight) and she has been dating him on the side for the last 4 months. Well, it’s been 4 months, but she hasn’t told the other guy that she’s been dating the 26 year old.
Last week she said that it got intimate, and here I’m sorry but I couldn’t help laughing; because she said that the 26 year old was only 5’9 and hung like a horse! (LmmfaO, Hahahahaha!).
Well, my answer to this could have gone several ways. But seeing as how we’ve been friends for over a decade, she already knows what I’m gonna say to her. So I thought, I’d put it out there to you guys, and see what you thought? I already told her that I was gonna use it for a women’s fiction, so go ahead and give me your best.
She said that she was reluctant to make a choice, and I asked her why; this is what she said.
1. She’s 35 years old with a 12 year old son, and could she really have a relationship of significance with a 26 year old?
2. The 43 year old is stability, even if he is a dick most of the time
3. What if next week the 26 year old decided to date someone his own age, and where does that leave her if she gives up the 43 year old?
4. Although she is totally enraptured with the 26 year old, he wants things that she doesn’t (children, marriage), and wants her to want the same.
So, here is what you have to answer;
What would you advise her to do?
C’mon y’all make em good. Whichever is the best is the one that I’m gonna use for the book, will be posted on all the book sites, and you get credit for your answer if I use it.
