Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)

Scattered Links Excerpt - Chapter Four

Chapter Four
Mama screams and sucks in a ragged breath.
Tears flood my eyes. She’s never moaned like this before. Her face reddens, and the veins on her neck bulge. I choke back the ball of phlegm in the back of my mouth. I hate Ludmila for leaving. My fingers tremble as I place the cool rag on Mama’s forehead.

“Sasha made Katya breathe when she was in labor. Breathe, Mama. Like this.” I pant in short bursts.

Mama pants with me, her eyes bulging and as round as coins. She wails and then slowly relaxes. When her breathing returns close to normal, she points to the vodka bottle, breathless. “Bring that here.” She pats the space next to her, and the bed creaks as she shifts her weight to a sitting position, her back leaning against the wall.

I don’t want to give her the bottle. She’ll fall asleep. But she’s waiting and smacking her lips like I’m going to give her a candy bar. The look reminds me of when dogs wait for the butcher to throw them a bone, drool frothing from their mouths.

“Oksana!” She reaches further toward me. There’s a sharp edge in her voice. “Hand it over.”

I give it to her.

She twists off the cap and throws back a swig. A long swig. She pinches her eyes and shivers, but then smiles and recaps the lid. “I’ll be okay. Go get some towels, scissors, and thread from the box over there. She points across the room to her little sewing box and places the bottle next to her, her palm resting on it. For a second, I think maybe she’ll stay in control.
But then she groans low like a growl. It’s sudden, as if she’s surprised she’s having another pain. Sasha counted the minutes between Katya’s pains, but I don’t need to. I know it’s been less than two. Her pains are close. Already. I breathe with her.

When her spike in pain ends, she reaches for the bottle and chugs it again, then collapses onto the pillows.

I kneel down beside her and push back her long stringy hair that’s matted to her face. She’s wearing one of Sergey’s old cotton shirts. It’s missing buttons, and she’s naked from the waist down. I prop her up onto the pillows. and she bends her legs, exposing her bottom. A small bloodstain appears on the sheets.

Scattered Links #Book Tour

Want a new book to read, come share with us in the Scattered Links #Book Tour.

“So many books, so little time.” 
― Frank Zappa

 Release Day Tour Scattered Links is a novel that pulls its characters from the gutters and, in the end, celebrates the tenacity of the human spirit. 

Thirteen-year-old Oksana lives on the streets of Russia with her pregnant mama and abusive aunt—both prostitutes. When Mama swells into labor, Oksana makes a decision to save herself from abandonment, a decision that torments her forever.

When her plan fails and her aunt dumps her in an orphanage, she never has the chance to say goodbye to her mama or tell her the secret that haunts her. Scattered Links is a story of family and the consequences that come from never learning how to love, of a girl’s inability to bond with her adopted family and the frustrations that follow.

How can a child understand the mechanics of forming a healthy relationship when she never had a mother who answered her cries, held her when she was frightened, fed her when she was hungry, or loved her unconditionally? Only when the child meets a rescued abused horse, and recognizes the pain in his eyes, does she begin to trust again.

***************************************

Scattered Links, (initially titled Love is Just a Word), was the winner of the 2013 Aspiring Writers Competition, sponsored by Write on Con and The Reading Room. Scattered Links was intended to show a glimpse into the life of a child with RAD, reactive attachment disorder, so prevalent in children who never had unconditional love in infancy.

This novel was inspired by Michelle’s journey to Russia to adopt her orphan daughter. Upon seeing the neglect of orphanage children and learning of the effects of RAD in post-institutionalized children, Michelle researched this disorder, committed to giving her daughter the best chance at a healthy life. Sadly, many parents can’t cope with the behavior from kids with RAD and re-home their children like pets.

What Would You Do With $1400? + 4Ms #Music

We are broke and penniless...well not completely penniless since my husband is still working and we get to pay the bills and eat. But that is all the pay can afford. There are so many bills that I try not to think too much on them, as I cannot afford to have an anxiety attack.

Debt is not something I'd call on myself.

Anyway, I think this year I want to follow this really cool chart I found on facebook. 
I might not be able to do every week, but I definitely will be trying this one on for size and sheer will! 

Let's hope soon, I'll have a job. Any job will do. I'll work hard. 

Now do you know if you begin NOW you can save up to $1400 in a year????
YES! Look at the chart below and do the math. What would you do with $1400? 

Photo share on The Whoot

I don't know yet, but for some reason I can see groceries in there, and maybe a nice ham this year. Maybe even invite a family over for dinner! I've been wanting to do that for quite awhile now. 

So what do you want to save for: An unexpected emergency? household items? Gifts for the end of the year? or even a family vacation? 

Then step on it y'all and let's see how we roll! So what if you can't do it all each week. Just put something in. Even the couple quarters you took out your pocket in the evenings! PUT IT IN! 

So it's not that I want to be rich. I just want to be able to pay bills and buy  a backpack for my son without wondering how it's going to kill the budget. This anxiety about getting by month to month is killer.

So this song seems to fit perfectly as chronicling my life :)

Welcome to today's music.  I hope Monday find you with a smile and music to begin your week with light steps.

Wanderlust Series

From glamorous capitals to exotic playgrounds...couples are swept up in desire passion & lust. Genre: Erotic Romance

by Bella Ross

***********************

About the author:

Bella Ross is a writer with many passions, two of which are writing and travelling. She wrote her first book (a novel) at eighteen a la Jackie Collins. But back then, unbeknownst to her, life was about to take her on a detour. As she set off on her new course, her dream of writing took a backseat and her entrepreneurial spirit flourished instead. But after many years of worldly pursuits, the urge to write returned and the time was right to follow her bliss.

She believes its never too late to follow your dreams/bliss. Her books/stories are her first attempt at erotic romance. She loves the genre and its endless creative possibilities. She likes pairing bold and dynamic (Alpha) men with sexy and strong women - which in her opinion - make for a hot and sizzling combination.

With her love of travel, it is no surprise that her 'Wanderlust Series' take place in glamorous capitals or exotic locales around the world. Its the perfect backdrop/setting for her characters to explore and indulge their lusts and passions, loves and desires. When she's not writing, she's reading, or gallivanting all over seeking new inspiration, or people watching while enjoying a latte at Starbucks and jotting down ideas.

She loves to hear from readers, and looks forward to interacting through her social media channels. You can also sign up for her mailing list to be notified about new releases and promotional offers.

Men and Manolos: Love and Relationships In The Heels of A Hopeless Romantic

I haven't reviewed a book in a little while, but this one peaked my interest and I had to sign up! The book Men and Manolos grabbed my attention because I remember secretly loving to watch Sex and the City.  I missed quite a few episodes because it was never on the right time and I have kids and would eventually fall asleep after they went to bed.

The girly-blogger in me enjoyed the movie sex and the city with Carrie's point of view in relationships blog along. And because my days are filled with so much and I'm a slow reader, at least I think I am, I figured this short chapter book was just right for my pleasure.

The book begins with the writer reminiscing about past relationships, lessons learned, how to move forward and all done in good shoes! :)

I like the flow of the book and the beginning got me hooked. I love the questions posed in a pondering sort of way on when: "enough is enough" in a relationship. How do you know when to raise the flag? It is true that every relationship has it's breakpoints. Some comes quickly depending on various deal breakers, others slowly and others take the wait period in love or resignation.

Based on experience I can say that even a state of indifference wont necessarily end a relationship. There are simply too many variables and they do not rest solely on emotions.

The book covers a wide range of topics that gives pause to the reader as they all apply to real life situations, no matter what relationship you are muddling through.

Some of the fun sub headings that grabbed me:
Knights:
Why are women perceived to need a knight to the rescue. I love the output that knights are everywhere and can be anyone. They come to our rescue every day and in many different circumstances. Someone just sharing a hug when you need it, at that moment is your knight.

Self Preservation:
I heard the other day in worship that the human being should be exposed to others for critical interactions or the mind can deteriorate. It made me re-think my introverted ways. I feel comfortable not associating, but honestly there are times when I would love to just hang out and have grown up conversations and relationships.
Have we over the years begun to put more than food in our airtight seal? Have our romantic ideals, dreams, and wishes threatened the longevity of our hearts and forced us to protect ourselves in an emotional airtight container? With so many individuals unwilling to trust, afraid to date, and unmoved to venture out of their own comfort zones, have our tupper containers begun to bind us rather than preserve?
In relationships, if we never open ourselves up to love, all we are doing is lengthening an inevitable expiration date living on a refrigerator shelf, believing that we are preserving ourselves....By the time we are taken out of the fridge and opened, we realized that in our attempt to protect ourselves, we had left the lid on too tight.
Love (Valentine's Day):
When she touched on the subject of her visiting the children in that orphanage, I was moved. Because indeed I remember all those years in so many orphanages and all I wanted was for the knight (family) in shining armor (love) to come rescue me. I am not sure I had experienced love, but indeed I knew it was present. After all I was made with it right? (And I don't mean from my mother and father) I doubt he loved her or she him. They were more naive and probably were infatuated with each other until the light bulb of pregnancy popped on.
These children, who had never been able to experience the love of a family, knew that love was out there. They believed in it, and they hoped that love would find them one day.  Their conviction of the existence of love was that strong.....It was this scene that I was remind of the day my friends tried to convince themselves that they were renouncing love. How is it that a group of women, who experienced the love of family, friends, mentors, and acquaintances have the audacity to say there is no such things as love? How could they hate Valentine's Day? 
Those children taught me that Valentine's Day wasn't about the commercialism. It's simply about he basic human capacity for love. A celebration of the one human emotion that still manages to surprise and amaze us.
Single: 
I have a friend who got really sad during the holidays. She is in her 30s and it hit her hard not having anyone to talk, toast a new year or cuddle with. I understand her need for human interaction and even the planning of the future.
...you hear the horror stories for so long that you begin to believe that fetish guy and paranoia boy are the only individuals left in the dating pool, that all the normal ones are taken. But what does that make us? Are we the leftovers too? Would that qualify us as having a defect? Or are we just so focused on finding someone to fit into  our lives that we have forgotten to take him for who he really is? Have we become relationship-centric? 
Expectations: 
I have many expectations from my partner in our marriage. Would things be better if I had none? We are going through a rough patch, but I don't think lowering or giving up all expectations is wise.
...It did however force me to unpack my expectation suitcase once and for all. I couldn't plan how I was going to live my love life. All I could plan was how many shoes I would need on my next trip. 
When it comes to relationships all I can expect is love and that's a much lighter suitcase to carry. 
When I was unmarried and a young girl, I had love stories from books in my head about how I'd like my life to turn out. Those kept a smile in my heart and occupied my thoughts on bored days and nights. However I didn't have time to date. I wonder if I had dated different men, if I'd have had a different sort of experience to bring to my relationship, or would those dating experiences make me hard around the edges of my heart from heartbreak. I'll probably not know.

What I do know was that I made the choice not to be in a relationship at a certain age because I knew I was vulnerable and unhealthy inside my mind. I was not able to be in a relationship and not be taken advantage of, hold my own, or provide much support and growth. I wanted to be strong, present and independent before getting involved.

Moreover I saw how many relationships were unhealthy all around me and I refused to be treated in such a way.

Deck Of Cards:
I'm in a relationship that is my first. Am I more naive in my first relationship? Am I holding on to something that can't be fixed? Or do I hold strong that people are a mess and the hard parts will heal up and bring comfort to live honestly and openly, to promote a growing and healthy relationship? If I had had other relationships before this one, would they have given me experience in how to handle all the thorns of this one? Or would they make it easier for me to walk away?
In a society where divorce lawyers and couple therapist are receiving bigger paychecks than specialized doctors, have we become too "fold" happy in relationship? Are we no longer willing to play the game of relationship, or better yet, are we more likely to fold our present hand than bet on the unknown care of our current significant other? Do relationships have their own deck of cards? 
I honestly do not know, but I do know many of the reasons why I'm still holding on.

Reunions: 
The book covers this too :) I never had one and probably never will, so I found this very funny as it seems to be a part of America's fabric.
Reunions are a pissing contest.....whoever has the best piss wins....
That made me laugh! But isn't it true! And mind you, all I can remember right now as evidence is Doug and Carrie's reunion. In King of Queens when Doug was sent an invite to his school reunion and all he had to show was that he married  a HOT wife. Carrie didn't mind but then a rift started with Carrie and Doug about how to wear her hair. She wore a bun to spite Doug who had told Deacon she looked like an old librarian. Hilarious episode if you haven't seen it.

While I loved watching Sex and the City and enjoy reading this book Men and Manolos and the stories with great dialogues and insights, I'm sure I wouldn't have handled dating too many men well. Maybe it's a personality thing :). However I'm sure I could carry on many affairs with manolos or any other beautiful shoes gifted or bought!

This books was very entertaining through the author's reminiscing of past relationships, intermingled with fashion and especially shoes.
Shoes help transform a woman
Is that true? I think they are a very important part of our daily existence. Everyone wants many choices when it comes to shoes, or they'd love a few very trustworthy pairs that will stand the test of apparel change and also time changes.
We've all heard the proverbial saying you never know an individual till you walk a mile in their shoes. Cinderella snagged a prince through the ploy of a glass slipper.... 
The ending chapter was very good. There is a reason we are supposed to live in and enjoy the present. The past is gone and cannot be undone and the future is elusive.
The only thing worse than indulging in the past is prepping for the future. Both are self-deceptive hobbies that pigeon hole us into non-existent pockets of time with figments of our imaginations....
This book is a quick read, with humor and life sized questions and insights.  It's good to find a book that brings fun and a dose of reality to the table. It was easy to think about my own heart and how I look at relationships throughout the pages.

I'd recommend this one for some book club fun! What are you reading or can't wait to read on your shelf?

It Takes A Village To Write A Book

It Takes A Village To Write A Book

Most book covers only list the author’s name on the front. This leads many readers to envision the author holed up for months on end in some isolated cabin, laboring over their typewriter. (Because these visions aren’t quite right without the old manual typewriters. Laptops just aren’t romantic enough.) In reality, for many authors, including myself, writing is a social activity.  There is no way I would be able to stay motivated enough to finish a novel without the encouragement of others. And how about those times when I write myself into a corner and don’t know how to get my characters out? I need someone around to talk me off the cliff when I am ready to chuck my laptop over the edge. So today I want to tell you about all the people who help me to take a story from the glimmer of an idea to a book.

Coffee shops are the modern writers’ equivalent of the office water cooler. Every author is different, but for me, networking with writers in person grounds me. I live in a community that is very artistic and author friendly, so it is easy for me to get out and network with other authors. For the past several years, I’ve been meeting weekly with a small group of local writers. We are all very different. We write different genres, have different skill sets and are traveling down our career paths in different ways, but this only helps us to learn from each other. Whether we are talking through plots, reading chapters to each other or sharing publishing insight, these meetings remind me that I’m not in this alone.

Don’t know any other writers in your community? No problem. Twitter, Facebook and other social media websites make it easy to network with other authors. When I decided to write my first book, I had no idea where to even start. (Other than the beginning, obviously.) Twitter was, and still is, the single most important tool in my writing arsenal. I have found authors to be amazingly supportive toward each other. I will spare you the economic explanation, but just know that our industry is unique in that while authors are technically competitors selling a product, we all do better when we help each other succeed. A reader doesn’t read one book over and over for the rest of their life.  They read many books, hopefully hundreds or thousands, over their lifetime. The more authors work together to promote reading in general, and to improve the overall quality of our products, the more books the public will buy. Truth.

And lastly, there are beta readers. (No, beta readers cannot take the place of hiring an editor, but that’s another discussion.) Every writer should work hard to cultivate a network of strong, honest beta readers. I’m not talking your mother or your best friend. You need someone who is not afraid to be brutally honest with you. Sometimes these are people you know, but often times they are people I find over social media. Readers who are interested in my subject, but don’t really know me on a personal level. When you find a good beta reader, do whatever you can to keep them happy. Whatever. You. Can. These people don’t get paid to read your work and critique it. They do it because they love books. When dealing with beta readers, respect them. Appreciate them. Bake cookies for them if you have to. For authors, beta readers are the true unsung heroes.

On behalf of all authors, thank you to all who contribute to our success.
