Sand and Sin

Whether you’re joining me from Dani Jace’s blog post or starting your blog hop here, welcome.

Today’s topic comes from the wonderful Jenna Da Sie – Write a poem about summer ending.

I’ve never considered myself much of a poet, but this week’s topic inspired me to give it a try:

 

A summer fling

 

Long days, hot nights

A beach-side stroll in the pale moonlight

Stardust paints your perfect lips

Dare to take a skinny dip?

 

Feet sink in hot white sand

Your warm skin, my questing hand

You lay with me under the moon

Making love until we swoon

 

Your hand in mine, felt so secure

A relationship to build and nurture

Could it stay forever true?

Could there be a me and you?

 

The sun sets earlier each day

Not as much time to while away

As nights grow cold so does your heart

You ask me why we chose to start

 

That fight we had the other day

Was that what drove you far away?

I miss your touch, your smell, your taste

Was it truly all a waste?

 

You say it was a summer fling

Not true, not love, not anything

You only want to be my friend

Why did the summer have to end?

 

So, what do you think? Let me know in the comments down below.

Sweet Sacrifice by L. D. Rose

The next installment of the amazing Soul Mate Tree series is out:

Sweet Sacrifice

by

L.D. Rose

THE LEGEND OF THE SOUL MATE TREE:

I am old, I am ancient, my purpose is clear
To give those who are needy a treasure so dear.
They who come to my roots, touch my bark, stroke my leaves
Find the soul of their lives if they but believe.
When I call and you listen, your prize will be great
If your heart remains open and you don’t hesitate.
Do you yearn? Be you lonely? Is your time yet at hand?
Reach for me and I’ll give to you. I’m yours to command.
For your trust, for your faith, keep my secrets untold
And I’ll gift you forever, to have and to hold.

An ancient legend spanning eras, continents, and worlds. To some, it’s nothing more than a dream. To others, a pretty fairy tale handed down through the generations.

For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.

Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he’s forbidden to see her, he can’t resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.

As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.

The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?

Desperate Bride (Forever Brides) by [Fenichel, A.S.]

Today’s topic comes from the wonderful A.S. Fenichel – The year is half over! OMG! Tell us about how you organize your world? Do you keep a day planner? Do you use your phone? Is organization important to you or is your life in total chaos and you love it?

Now, I am not the most organized person in the world. I rarely make lists, and don’t have a daily planner. Hell, I rarely have a daily plan. It’s usually just a mental list of what I’d like to accomplish.

That said, I do have a shared Google Calendar that I share with my wife for the big, important events I don’t want to lose track of. But other than that, each day is kind of a crap shoot.

Maybe I can pick up some tips from the other bloggers today, so I’m heading over to Leslie Hachtel’s post, where the Romance Writer’s Blog hop continues: https://lesliehachtelwriter.wordpress.com/

And check out Leslie’s fun, sexy novel, Hannah’s War:

Today’s topic comes from the wonderful Jenna Da Sie – Start from the end. You’re the ghost of Christmas future. Write about your life from your funeral to the present. How were you celebrated?

Grim, yet interesting.

I hope people will smile and laugh when they remember me. I know grief is part of the process but . . . ugh.

As an author, I hope my books will live on and continued to be read. And while I don’t have any deep-seated religious beliefs, I do hope there is something beyond.

I think my greatest worry is that I know I will die with so many unwritten stories and characters in my head. Or further stories of the characters I’ve already written about. What happens to them? Could heaven be a place where they all come to life? Where I can share a tankard of mead with Jord Thorson at an inn in Asgaard? Where I can take a seat on the bridge of the Starboard Mist with Rik and the crew to fly through space?

Hopefully I’ve got a little more time yet to write. There are a lot of stories rumbling around in my head.

I’m almost scared to hear what my buddy Marc Stevens has to say on this topic, but the next hop on the Romance Writers Weekly blog hop is his at: https://marcstevenserotica.wordpress.com/

If you’re starting your blog hop here, or just hopping over from A. S. Fenichel’s blog,  welcome.

Today I’m posing the question: Let’s take a trip. Pretend your publisher has offered you a two week vacation anywhere in the world to inspire a new novel. Where do you go and why?

So where would be a good place to go to inspire an out-of-this-world science fiction romance?

How about a trip to the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum?

That sounds like a good place to start my trip.

Then maybe the next stop could be the Museum of Science fiction in Washington DC.

Last stop on my out-of-this-world vacation would have to be Seattle, WA and the Museum of Pop Culture.

Talk about a great get-away.

Do you know any other great ways to take off on an otherworldly adventure without a space ship? Let me know in the comments down below.
