The Dancer Excerpt


The Dancer
The Ballerina Series Book 3
Excerpt
by 
Ursula Sinclair


My fingers curled into the twisted sheets. I’d been suffocating from sheer terror. I took deep breaths before opening my eyes. It had been a long time since I’d had that vivid a dream. Years in fact, usually my dreams were about feelings of abandonment, loneliness, not quite so dark. So real. Because these weren’t dreams, but memories. Real nightmares from my past. Now I had had them two nights in a row. What the fuck!
Thank God, I didn’t let Christy come home with me tonight. I shouldn’t have let her stay with me last night, but I’d been so damn lonely lately. I tried to make it clear to her there was nothing more between us other than two people scratching an itch. I didn’t give a shit that she sometimes screwed other cast members, we weren’t dating. Still, I scared the shit out of her when I woke her up in the middle of the night screaming. When she asked what was wrong, I lied of course, and told her just a nightmare, and I couldn’t even remember what it was about. Not hardly. She and I shared the physical, not the emotional.These nightmares came from a place deep inside of me. I shared with no one.
        I thought I conquered this fear a long time ago. That and the psychiatrist bills said I had. In truth, I’d conquered it on my own, this memory of the haunted woods and a lost little boy. Well, partially on my own, I had a little help from my dad and a friend who gave me the tools to deal with it. I am a man now, and I had overcome this. I’d done it by learning all about the outdoors. So, I thought I had put this particular terror behind me. Fuck!

Featured Author Madame TripleX

Meet Madame.

Hello LaVerne. I’m so glad you’re willing to have me on your blog. At least brave enough to have me on. LOL.

Let me introduce myself. I’m Madame TrripleX. The triple X is no accident. What I write is not for the faint of heart. I know that sounds cliché, but it’s true.

My writing can only be described as: raunchy, graphic, borderline porn and somewhat like a men’s confession letter, but with a little woman’s touch.  So yeah. I write raunchy works that a man can read and not feel that he’s reading a romance novel and a woman can read something, that maybe is past her comfort zone, but she’s willing to step out of the box.

So what is my work like and why do I write stories that are considered borderline porn?

I don’t believe the hype that men are the only ones that are visual creatures and like their reads dirty. There are some of us (raising hand) that kinda like it graphic.

What kind of woman will like my work?

The woman that gets off on porn videos either with her significant other—or by herself.
The woman that loves sex toys and can go into a shop and buy them without wearing dark sunglasses.
The woman that likes the sounds of sex, Yes! Do you get wet hearing a woman moan and groan as she’s being made loved to?
Do you like hearing a woman scream out her pleasure? For some that’s a turn on.

If you’re nodding your head to any of the above, then you’ll like my work.

Now, what made me start writing stories like this? I saw a niche.

I’ve been noticing that a lot of woman that have been reading erotica said it’s begining to be the same old same old. 

Really? I’ve read a lot of erotica/ romantica and hot steaming romances, and a lot of it is quite good.

But that wasn’t exactly what these women were talking about. Noooo. The sex was the same. Even the BDSM stuff! WOW!

So I asked: “What are you looking for?” I was surprised—somewhat. I found out that they wanted their sex scenes a bit more graphic. They wanted the language to be a bit—rougher.  They wanted to almost feel the sex as they read it.

Those words that were mostly forbidden to describe body parts. They wanted to see those now.

They wanted their reads to read like Hustler!

What’s too raunchy? Of course there are the usual no-nos. You know the ones on those submission pages that tell you what they don’t want to see or accept. And actually those aren’t raunchy, that’s just tasteless and icky.

What I write is fun nasty.

Do my stories have plots? 

Of course! In fact ULTIMATE SURRENDER has a real good plot. Just because I use nasty language and my sex scenes are graphic, doesn’t mean I don’t deal with loving couples.

And that’s the way real sex should be. One should be able to express themselves to their mate unashamed and with abandon without feeling guilty. And ULTIMATE SURRENDER deals with that issue.

Hey, I enjoy sex. I think it’s fun and it can be nasty, but in a good way. I love to let loose and scream from the rooftops. I want to have that kind of sex that if you’re at the hotel, the people in the next room complain to management. But you don’t care, cause you know you had a good time. WINK WINK.

And that’s how I write my books and I hope you read them with the same kind of abandon and guilt free.

FEATURED AUTHOR ELIZABETH WALSH





Ever since I was young, my imagination took me to wondrous places in far off lands with castles and fairies, even a few dragons.  I fought alongside Red Beard on a pirate ship. I climbed the highest peaks in Tibet. My dreams took me to ancient Rome and into the farthest reaches of the galaxy.  I loved to daydream of so many different things, places, and people. I learned that through reading new worlds opened up so I became an avid reader of all genres and spent hours even in the summer at the public library. My imaginings also brought out my creativity, which I expressed in a myriad of mediums.

I started out drawing and doodling throughout the day, even during school, which is not easy when you go to a small Catholic school. My love of art bloomed in elementary school and I started working with paint instead of pen and ink. In high school, I even won a few awards for several art projects and still to this day, I have many of those pieces hanging about my home.  During that time, I experienced fluctuating emotions like any teen though at the time I felt that only I understood such suffering (such as we all do).  I dealt with the swirling emotions and feelings of self-doubt through a new medium, poetry.  I wrote stanza after stanza, pouring out my pain onto the page. The words expressed my deepest thoughts I felt I couldn’t share with the world. I also became an insatiable reader of poetry but the greats such as Poe, Stein, and Plath.  The summer I graduated, I was able to attend Oxford University in England for a summer session where I developed my love of photography.

Though I continued to write poetry, draw, paint, and take photos, when my son was born, I dedicated my time to finishing my education and taking care of him. Deep in my heart, I always wanted to write a book as my thoughts always followed a marvelous path weaving through valleys and caves, dungeons and clouds. My greatest accomplishment remained one solitary published poem, Fairy Dance. In the fall of 2010, I forced myself to read for pleasure as over the years previous, I had read mostly schoolwork. (apparently there is a lot of reading in a PhD program – who knew?)

I fell upon role-playing on Facebook. Now, in my teens, I was a devoted Dungeons and Dragons player, so I thought what fun and escape form work/school/mother continuum. I started with a group and met some wonderful (and not so) people.  One of those people was LaVerne Thompson. She took me under her wing and encouraged me to write. After convincing me to submit a story for inclusion in a Christmas anthology, I decided that I would spread my wings and soar to achieve this lifetime goal of being a published author. I received my wish in December of 2011 when A Special Christmas anthology came out with three of my friends (LaVerne Thompson, Scarlet Hunter, and Eve Tesoro) 

My story, A Wolf of the Frozen Sea, is a paranormal romance about a wayward human that finds himself in love with a not so normal female. This moment was one of the proudest in my life to share one of my stories with the world and do so with friends!













Now that I have my feet wet, oh it is on! I wrote a sequel to my first story and Frozen Hearts released on May 31, 2012.  I am working on a few pieces from several genres like a Sci-Fi and more romance. Currently, I am working on a full-length novel series with an awesome coauthor, Andie Michaels that should have the first book releasing at summer’s end. This story follows a vampire warrior struggles to deal with the loss of his beloved mentor while searching for an ancient artifact that can save or destroy the vampire race. The unexpected happens when he meets a guardian angel. Let’s just say that things get interesting for pair and those chasing them….

This journey brought the daydreamer home to her world of fairies, knights, monsters, and the like. I know this trek is far from over and I am honored to be able to take it with incredible friends.  I would love to have you join along with me…

Meet Scarlet!

Please welcome my close friend and author Scarlet Hunter as she talks about her latest. Heaven's Sacrifice.

I’m so glad to be here today, LaVerne! I’m a HUGE fan of your work, so for you to have me here, I’m overly excited and still pinching myself.

You are too funny, glad to have you here. And ditto lady. mwah. LaVerne

So, tell me a little about your book, Heaven’s Sacrifice.
Sure. Percival, the hero in my book, is an angel who’s finally given his first assignment. To go to earth and save a human soul. However, when he gets there, he is put to the test by two sisters. At first, he can’t decide on which sister is in need of saving. Spending time with the two, he learns they both do, but in different ways. Only in time, he realizes which one he must save. And yet, he is pulled toward the other putting him at risk of failing his mission. The outcome, should Percival fail in saving the one he is assigned, will result in him losing an angels most cherished possession—their wings.
So…basically, he must decide…but who will he choose to save?

Tell us a little more about these sisters?
Well, they couldn’t be more different, let me tell ya. They are—Brianna and Ava. They help their uncle run a Beachfront condo resort in Kure Beach, North Carolina. When unfortunate circumstances occur and their uncle gets ill, it is up to them to help keep the resort stay up and running.
Brianna, younger sister to Ava. A flamboyant, wild and arrogant girl. This young lady needs a little lesson in life, amongst other things. She’s too hell bent on getting any and all the men’s attention rather than helping her sister around the resort.  
Ava, on the other hand, is the total opposite of her sister. Quiet, shy, yet loyal and trustworthy. She takes on a lot of responsibility focusing on helping her uncle; not wanting to let him down. She ends up taking care of everyone and everything, except one person—herself. She needs saving, but in a whole different way.

I’d love to share a little teaser, if I may?  



Excerpt:
     Materializing on earth, Percival appeared and stood on the sand, next to a long worn-out catwalk. He scanned the countless planks of rotten wood. They undoubtedly needed some TLC in more ways than one. By the looks of the property surrounding it, the newspaper ad was spot on. A skilled handyman was needed for this kind of job. 
     For a moment, he savored the calming, therapeutic waves crashing on shore. The sound felt like an explosion of love over the soul. Percival prayed with thanks, glad his mission had brought him near the Atlantic Ocean.
     Lifting his foot, he placed it on the edge of the catwalk and putting some weight on it, wiggled his leg a few times on the board to ensure it would hold him. Convinced it would, he placed his full weight on the plank and noticed the whole length of the catwalk was covered with pieces of slivered wood, poking out from its depleted state. Thankful his sandals protected his feet, he proceeded toward the building.
     In the heavens and before leaving, the angels were normally briefed about their assignments. Yet, Percival wasn’t given specifics for his mission. He certainly would not question the lack of information, because in Heaven, one never asked questions but is grateful for the facts received. If God thought angels needed to know more, he made sure they did.
     Everything has a purpose.
     When he advanced, he inspected the building. Percival could tell it’d been constructed of the same wood as the catwalk and in the same dire need of attention. As his gaze skimmed up and across its surface, he imagined the structure probably appeared very elegant back in its day, yet now seemed in disrepair.
     Unexpectedly, a squeal came from behind him, catching him off guard. Percival turned to find a small boy pointing at him while tugging at his father’s swim shorts. Funny, how he hadn’t even noticed them when he arrived. He needed to be more careful and assess his surroundings first.
     “Look Pa. That man has wings!”
     Oops, forgot about you two back there. Percival willed his thick, colossal set of feathery, white wings to fade from the mortal eye. He then nodded at the father and winked at the boy, who now displayed a saddened expression.
     “I swear, Pa, he did—just like the Archangel.”
     The father took the boy by the hand and led him toward their car. “Not everyone is a comic book character, son. C’mon, let’s go home.”
     Relieved his carelessness didn’t require him to handle the situation further, Percival watched the two leave.
     The boy’s face remained glued to the passenger window of the SUV until they were out of sight. No doubt, waiting and hoping for the set of wings to reappear.
     Cracking a smile at how he loved the Children of God, Percival returned his attention to his task. He reached into the front pocket of his jeans. After pulling out a piece of torn paper, he glanced at the newspaper ad, then at the building. Confirming the numbers 882 barely hanging above the door’s entrance, he double-checked the name Ava, he’d written under the job qualifications. When she answered his call, the sound of her voice sang like church bells. Soft and angelic, it carried the slightest hint of a twang he’d never heard before. He sensed right off, she was unique by the way she spoke to him. Percival liked her instantly and looked forward to meeting her.
