Country Living and Deadly Sins

The end of last year I moved to the country (really, there are cows, deer, horses, rabbits and raccoons!)
We (hubby & I) downsized  and believe me, that is no easy task, but I swear I'll never move again.

I've also been busy with the President's Day release of PHE Ink's second anthology, "Deadly Sins." This time I edited the entire book which was a daunting task, even though it did appeal to my OCD. I think I've found my niche and I'm very proud of the results. "Deadly Sins" is a political anthology that gives you several stories of a man so determined to become President that he'll do anything to insure his win. And when I say anything,'ll just have to read it and see.

I'd like to invite you to join PHE Ink - Writing Solutions Firm as we celebrate its 4th Birthday. It’s our birthday, but you receive the gifts. For the entire month of March, we’re giving away a title a day.

Winners will be picked from our mailing list. We will announced them
weekly on the website and social networking sites. To join our mailing list, please go to

I now have a short break before I hit the road with my literary sisters for the "Peaches in Paradise" event at the Unity Festival, March 16th in Gulfport/Biloxi, MS.

Hope to meet you there!

A Sneak Preview: When Baldwin Loved Brenden by Electa Rome Parks

There is no greater joy than the birth of a new baby, an addition to the family. Well, my 9th baby, When Baldwin Loved Brenden, drops January 29, 2013. As you must know, I'm super excited and can't wait to introduce my baby to the world, to her aunties and cousins! I recently received the sonogram and I want to share the joy:) So, here's your sneak preview!

Fair-weather friends come and go, but true friendship lasts a lifetime. Same goes for true love.

Ten years is a long time. Much can change in ten years, an entire decade. That’s how many years have passed when a former close-knit group of college friends, Baldwin, Brenden, Bria and Christopher, self-proclaimed The Group, are tragically reunited to attend the funeral of one of their own in a small North Carolina town.

The Group hasn’t seen or spoken to one another since an unfortunate set of circumstances placed their friendship in jeopardy ten years earlier. After graduation, everyone went their separate ways and never looked back, until now. The past has a way of catching up with you, sooner or later. Baldwin, the romantic, Brenden, the do-gooder, Bria, the wildchild, Christopher, the pretty boy, are all about to discover the truth in that.

Rihanna was once dubbed the peacemaker of the group. Her death reunites them for an unforgettable, poignant and life changing few days. Each friend will confront their own internal demons and leave a changed person. Secrets are revealed, hurts exposed, tears shed and laugher shared, all in the name of friendship and love.

Can anything truly tear real friendship and love apart?

Happy PUB DAY, Pynk - Guest Post by Madam Money Watts

In honor of today being the official PUB DAY for Pynk's 4th title, POLITICS.ESCORTS.BLACKMAIL, which is an erotic tale that explores the call girl industry as it spills over into the world of politics, the main character, Madam Money Watts, has written a guest post called "The Girlfriend Experience," to enlighten you as to what the term means, and to give you an idea of what Johns might ask for of sex workers. Enjoy!

The Girlfriend Experience
by Madam Money Watts

High-five to Pynk for taking you on a journey into the world of sex for money in Politics.Escorts.Blackmail., a novel about politicians and celebrities who frequent the services of New York escorts. My name is Madam Money Watts, and right off the bat I want to make this perfectly clear; as far as sex for money, while my company, Lip Service, has indeed accepted money from some very high-profile, powerful, wealthy clients in exchange for Lip Service contractors to "escort" said clients by spending private time with said clients, I have never accepted money for sex. Let's get that straight first. These are consenting adults, and what happens between two grown people, should stay between two grown people.

So, on to the purpose of this blog post . . . Pynk has informed me that the working title of Politics Escorts.Blackmail. was The Girlfriend Experience. She was intrigued with the term girlfriend experience, also known as GFE in some circles (clears throat), and she asked if I would share my knowledge of it, and I happily agreed (not that the definition fits any particular goings-on at Lip Service, mind you).

Anyway, here we go - the term "girlfriend experience" is not a new term. It's been around for years, though it was used quite often when the sex scandal broke about the former governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer, who allegedly paid for high-priced prostitutes, one of those women being Ashley Dupre.

A girlfriend experience is a pay-for-play connection between individuals that gives the illusion of intimacy between the two. From the outside, those who'd observe the couple would easily assume that they were an item, committed, and in love. GFE is a term used to describe the sexual lifestyle preference of a client who pays for a high-end call girl, wanting the escort to play the role and act like she's his woman, sometimes in bed, which I know nothing about, and sometimes out of bed, sometimes both - imagine that. It can involve meals together, holding hands, hugging, talking - more personal interaction and public displays of affection. In bed, I'm told it could mean snuggling, conversation, deep French kissing, sometimes spending the night, foreplay, romantic music. If the escort is a male, the term is "boyfriend experience," or BFE.

From what I hear, there's also a term called "porn star experience," or PSE, as in the type of sex you'd see in XXX-rated movies. It's supposedly less about feelings and more about the performance.

Based on the GFE theory, Pynk has given me permission to share a scene from chapter two of her novel, Politics.Escorts.Blackmail., very loosely based on Lip Service, that involves an escort named Midori Moody. Bless Midori's heart, she's yearned for a "normal" life with a man who could save her from her profession. To her, to have the husband, kids, and white picket fence, with two dogs, Lassie and Rin-Tin-Tin, is only fantasy. But in the meantime, there's this amazing, yet married, Long Island doctor who shows her a real good time in Florida; enough of a good time to distract her from her belief that any man who'd ever be attracted to her would never see her as virtuous enough to marry.

And so, enjoy the below excerpt as Midori fulfills the Long Island doctor's GFE fantasy. And be nice to Midori Moody because in the book, and in real life, she's my little sister. As a disclaimer, please note that I cannot be responsible for the fictional words of Pynk. She's always making up something. She has such a way with words, in fact, she convinced me that this story had to be told, not to glamorize the business, but to paint a picture of what can happen if said clients have sex with said escorts, and allow you to be a fly on the said escort wall.

Get ready to be eroticized Pynk-style, because . . . there's hot, there's red-hot, and then there's Pynk! (Pynk told me to say that)
