Stripped to Please: Meeting Max #MFRWHooks

 


Note: 
Last week, I finished sharing as much of Coming to Earth as I'm willing to give away. I'm sharing Down on the Farm with the MFRW Steam hop, so today I'm going to start sharing snippets from Stripped to Please, the third novelette in the Carnal Invasion series. Links for purchasing the story or the first collection follow the snippet.

The Blurb
When spoiled rich college boy Maxwell Bancroft decides to stop in at the XXX Show Club, he meets two sexy strippers who are literally out of this world.

The Snippet

Maxwell Bancroft had never been particularly good at anything, but Daddy’s money always bought him whatever he needed. That is, until Magnus Bancroft went and married Gloria Mack, who had a nice daughter about Maxwell’s age, and Max thought it would be fun to seduce his goody two-shoes stepsister and ruin her for every other guy who came along.

It wasn’t hard for Max to get Wella Mack into his bed, but that wasn’t because Wella was easy. Wella was proud of having held onto her virginity for twenty years. Max convinced Wella that theirs was a love that defied all odds. He assured her that there was no-one else in his heart. He told Wella that he loved her and succeeded easily at seducing the innocent and romantic young woman into bed.

The problem was, where Max succeeded, the condom failed, and Wella, who had been chaste until she met Max, was not on the pill. Wella fell pregnant, and now Max was being punished for his stupidity.

There are two ways to get your copy of Stripped to Please.

And now, I ain't too proud to beg, y'all.

My poor little Coming to Earth went for two years with no ratings, and now its first rating is one star. I didn't read what was said, I don't need to be in a bad mood for the rest of the year. But if any of you would be willing to review the story, I'll send you a copy. 

Hopefully, you'll like it, but regardless of the rating you give it, I will feature a book of your choice at Readers Roost 
(http://ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com) as a thank you for giving it a chance. By feature, I don't mean I'll just throw out a link. You send me your media kit and/or Blogger-friendly HTML post, and I will post a bona fide promo post and share it on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for you.

Folks, I know that Coming to Earth is not five-star material. To be honest, I wrote it as a joke, but I developed a bit of a soft spot for it. I think it's worth at least three stars. Anyway, I would really appreciate the help lifting my little story out of the muck, if you can give it. 

And now for the inevitable...

Dreamers, lovers, and Star Voyagers: WeWriWa: EU53:                                                       Hello fellow warriors. :-) Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends. I hope you...

Sometimes shopping with a companion is enjoyable. My shopping companion is my son. He's very pragmatic and cost-conscious, which is mostly good but frustrates the part of me that wants shopping to be fun.

I've never been shopping with someone that I was romantically interested in. I think it might be distracting.

The food bank gave us an 18-pound turkey, which is very generous, but it's way too much food. I was hoping it would just be a turkey breast. I'm slow-roasting it overnight on Wednesday, then my son and I will take it over to my mother's house for lunch on Thanksgiving. We're still going to have turkey for ages.

Spooky Sunday: Carved in Flesh: Lost and Lingering

 


Carved in Flesh

Lost and Lingering

Dominic Dante bowed his head to hide his face as he emerged from the alley on Elmwood Avenue between Swanson’s Elegant Formals and Aeneid’s Greek Cafe. He needed to find Eris and show her the evidence of his devotion.

Aeneid Veld’s rebellious eleven-year-old daughter Anna Amalia had chosen the wrong night to sneak out of the loft above the café. The street-savvy girl had slipped out at night many times before. She did not fear Crouch End’s strange underbelly. She had been learning from a book of spells that she’d purchased at Flash’s Book Studio for her birthday last year and had gained a fair bit of respect from many of Crouch End’s Things that Go Bump in the Night.

On this night, however, Anna Amalia had run afoul of an obsessed soul seeking an innocent to sacrifice. Dominic Dante was a tormented young man who thirsted for both vengeance and acceptance. The stunningly sexy vampire he met at the Church of Starry Wisdom had promised him both if he proved himself to her.

Luckily for Anna Amalia, she had allies in the shadowed night world and Earth’s Dreamlands. One of those allies was hurrying to find help before the unfortunate girl succumbed to her injuries.

David Clifford was a Scottish musician who had moved to London in 1960, the year he turned eighteen. His parents and younger siblings moved to Crouch End three years later. David had died in 2012 from lung cancer. On this cold November night in 2014, he roamed the streets in spirit.

David’s adopted sister, Lotus Clifford, was a nun who lived in The Chapel of the Loaves and Fishes on Foxglove Court, along with the parish’s priest, Father William Kroger. David knew that Lotus and Father Will would certainly assist Anna, and he knew that Lotus would listen to him if he could break through the static surrounding her.

Luck was with David, as at that moment, a down-on-his-luck laborer named Robert Fitzgerald stumbled from the Istasha Tavern. Most people thought that Rob Fitzgerald was naught but a malt-soaked malingerer, but David was aware that the man had the second sight, even when he was seeing double. The spirit hurried to place himself just outside the lamplight directly in Fitzgerald’s path, allowing the lamp’s beams to illuminate him without making him appear transparent.

Rob Fitzgerald was deep in blurry thought when he saw the man standing near the house at the junction where Elmwood Avenue met Quartz Street. His first inclination was to cross the street and head home another way, but for reasons he couldn’t explain, he felt that the somehow familiar stranger could be trusted. Still, he paused before continuing further.

“Just so’s ya know, Mate, I drank up the last of me wages in the tavern,” Rob slurred. “So, there wouldn’t be no sense to robbin’ me, y’know.”

Robin's Advice #WeWriWa #8Sunday #SnipSun #SnippetSunday 22 November 2020

  



The Blurb
The fate of the Cosmos rests in the hands of an unlikely team of unusual friends. Will an exiled member of an ancient extraterrestrial race, a human ghost, and two ghouls be able to outfox an ancient evil and beat Nyarlathotep at his game before time runs out? This buddy story is the first in a series of New Cthulhu Mythos cliffhangers.

The Notes
Last time Ketil chided Robin for always thinking of his stomach.

The Snippet

“Garron with ya, yer snooty Kraut!” Robin sniffed. “Tryin’ to help me mate, I was. I’m just sayin’ it ain’t smart to be too introspective in this bloody place. Best to nibble on a good piece of well-cured meat and live for today. Always look forward and never back, that’s my philosophy.”

“Aw, Robin, I thanks yer!” John sniffled. “Yer just great, Old China Plate, and yer quite right, ya know. I suppose I found meself regretting that I never had a chance to open me own bakery as was me dream. It’s too late now, though.”

Thirsty Thursday: In His Defense

 


In His Defense

Robin tried to remain calm, but he felt as if his entire body was clenching into a fist as he followed his new companion to meet the extraterrestrial scout who had erroneously decimated his life. Robin Roberts changed irrevocably on the day that Betsy was taken from him. Although, as Nyarlathotep had observed to Robin’s chagrin, Robin had remained good at heart, he was much quicker to let his temper show and much more willing to do things outside the law to earn a shilling or two for a meal and a pint at the pub and a place to sleep.

Robin realized that he was squeezing Betsy’s hand much too tightly, as he had when they first encountered the Mi-Go scout in his ridiculous rumpled disguise on that fateful October day in 1880. He started to apologize, but Betsy’s gentle smile and soft squeeze of his clawed fingers let him know that she understood.

The group approached a Mi-Go pruning roses in a colorful lakeside garden. Robin and Betsy’s guide spoke to this Mi-Go, buzzing in a language that Robin didn’t understand. Betsy approached the pair, and Robin realized that this gentle gardener was the being who had wreaked havoc on his existence. That such a bucolic creature could cause heart-rending pain through its actions seemed impossible.

“Mickey, I’d like you to meet Robin,” Betsy said.

Betsy’s voice seemed far away and Robin found himself wondering if the whole journey to this utopian world designed by alien creatures for the benefit of certain hand-selected humans was a dream and he would wake at any minute and find himself back in the dreadful Dream House, alone and more broken than ever.

“A tender trap, innit?” Robin murmured, his speech slurring. “Oi, you’ll not fool old Robin Roberts a minute more, yer bastards! I ain’t joinin’ yer band, Nyarlathotep, yer crusty old filet of cod, and that’s a fact, Jack! Yer can open me dome and pluck out me John Wayne, but I’ll never be yer bloody sycophant!”

Betsy gave a horrified cry as Robin collapsed to the warm, soft ground, the late afternoon sunlight highlighting his green-gray canid face.

“He’ll be all right,” the Mi-Go called Mickey reassured her. “He is simply in a state of shock. I imagine it is difficult for him to accept this new beginning as reality when he has lived for so many years in darkness and uncertainty. I regret the part that my actions played in causing his distress.”

“I fear he may have fainted to prevent himself from decking you, Mickey,” Betsy revealed. “Robin is a gentle soul by nature, but he has a fiery temper. I believe that he does forgive you, but he is still hurt and angry.”

“I understand, my sister, and grieve for the pain I caused,” Mickey stated.

The sun set, and the first of three moons began its ascent, glistening off the pristine lake surrounded by the gardens of a terraformed paradise on the edge of the Universe.

Tidbit Tuesday: Tender Trap: A Fungus from Yuggoth

 

Image copyright DrewArt

As Betsy and Robin clung to each other in a loving embrace and declared their infinite fidelity, the softly buzzing voice of a serene Mi-Go apologized for the interruption.

“Robin, allow me to introduce A Fungus from Yuggoth,” Betsy said, bestowing a soft touch on the lower portion of one of the creature’s upper limbs near its pincer.

“Cer, the Heap of Coke as is gonna be accompanyin’ us on our voyage,” Robin acknowledged. “Pleasure ter make yer acquaintance, old currant bun, and I’m more’n willing ter earwig…that is, ter listen ter yer suggestions as to proceed on this mission.”

“You need not adjust your manner of speech to accommodate me, Friend,” the bucolic extraterrestrial stated. “I am a telepath, and as for those colloquialisms to which I cannot directly affix a meaning, I can still trace your intent via your brain waves.”

“Oi, yer like me old China plate Yitzy, then!” Roben exclaimed. “Well, yer face ain’t the same, of course. Yitzy, he’s got two loaves of bread. One of them loaves of bread has three eyes and several ears on stalks, while the other has four mouths what look like trumpets. Mind, I can’t tell if he has lips. Now, Yitzy, he only uses his mouths fer drinkin’ and takin’ in air. He only speaks by telepathy, whereas I can hear yer voice aloud, but it’s a right puzzle, for I can’t see as you have a norf and souf anywhere, not even a slit in yer dome. Forgive me, Mate, for I always was the sort ter go off on a tangent when tryin’ ter figure out how new things Kathy Burke. They oughta print out a card fer me what says ‘Robin Roberts, expert in Pointless Blather.’”

“Your observations are not pointless, for when you lace them together you shall, at the least, obtain satisfice. However, my objective in assisting you is to ensure that your noble mission is optimized for results exceeding the projected outcome. Will you accept my offer of assistance?”

“Mate, if I’d a heartbeat in me chest, It would be doin’ a wee jig of joy at the prospect of joinin’ forces with a sharp new ally. Now, afore we get the dough on the toad, I feel that I oughta apologize ter you.”

“I am unsure why, as it seems that you and I are, as you might say, hitting it off.”

“Well, it’s because I spent more’n a decade hatin’ your kind ‘cause one of yours stole Betsy away. At this point, I understand that you Hoppin’ Pot think different than us Earth folk, an’ this Heap of Coke, well, ‘e thought ‘e was ‘elpin Bets. I still ain’t none too pleased fer all the years of sorrow I ‘ad, but I understand that this chap didn’t mean no harm. Hatin’ everyone from any race or tribe or what have you ain’t right, and so that’s why I want ter apologize.”

“If it would be acceptable, I would like to introduce you to the scout who brought Betsy to us. He will understand if you would prefer not to make his acquaintance, and I am not attempting to make excuses for his erroneous actions. He was on his first scouting mission and did not take into account the fact that Betsy, as an adolescent of your species, did not possess the wisdom to agree to his proposal to separate her brain from her body in order to alleviate her emotional distress. It was his desire to assist one from whom he detected empathy and superior intellect.”

Dark Hearts Love Too: Colors of a Life in Shadow (Choka/Senryu)


I hate it when people apologize for writing dark poetry. Noo! Stop it! Be proud! My poetry has three forms: dark, silly, and snarky. This one's dark, and I sure as hell don't apologize.

The Blurb

Geeky Gandy Stafford's lifelong fantasy comes true when he meets the otherworldly Dorma and Desyra. These last remnants of a botched extraterrestrial invasion discover that they require a great deal of energy to maintain their human forms.

The easiest way to obtain essential power?

Sex, and lots of it.

 

The Snippet

“We can benefit each other, Supreme Game Lord,” said Desyra.

“I... like I said, I’m not actually the Supreme anything.”

“But this is how you address yourself to encourage yourself,” observed Dorma.

“Yeah. It’s dumb.”

The aliens ran their hands down Gandy’s body towards his groin as they licked his neck.

“We can benefit one another,” Desyra repeated.

“We do not wish for the exchange of energy to be unpleasant,” stated Dorma. “Do not fear, Lord Aleph. You will not be harmed.”

“You see, the energy consumed is taken in a fashion that the host will find pleasant,” Desyra clarified. “If you agree, the exchange can begin.”

 Will Gandy agree? 

I'm not going to give the whole thing away!

To read what happens next, you'll have to get the book!

Portrait of a Ghoul #WeWriWa #8Sunday #SnipSun #SnippetSunday 15 November 2020

 



The Blurb
The fate of the Cosmos rests in the hands of an unlikely team of unusual friends. Will an exiled member of an ancient extraterrestrial race, a human ghost, and two ghouls be able to outfox an ancient evil and beat Nyarlathotep at his game before time runs out? This buddy story is the first in a series of New Cthulhu Mythos cliffhangers.

The Notes
Last time Ketil called Robin's culinary tastes into question.

The Snippet

Entering the main sitting room area of the Dream House, the group noticed various portraits hanging on the wall. Little John sighed sadly as he beheld the picture of himself clad in a chef’s hat, wearing a white apron dusted with flour and stained variably with fruit fillings.

“Mates, I know that when you look upon me, you see nothing but a ‘orrible ghoul who wants nothing more than to sink his teeth into a chunk of rotting flesh,” he lamented.

“Well, as for me, I say, if the flesh suits, eat it,” Robin declared, eagerly ripping into the chunk of liver he was carrying.

“If you are what you eat, you must consume a fairly constant supply of arse,” Ketil snapped. “Your chum here is baring his soul, and the only words which comes from your mouth is dumb and self-absorbed. Be at least respectful and enjoy your offal in peace.”

First Look Friday: The End?

 

I am reusing the image from the Sunday Writing Prompt

The following is a chapter from my current WIP, The Key of Eidolon.

The End?

“Well, then, let us make haste away from this place!” Captain Hagar declared. “We must throw Nyarlathotep off our trail. Of course, because you are still corporeal, we must stick to places that are in the Goldilocks Zone. A place too hot or a place too cold or a place without proper atmosphere will not do at all.”

“We could lock mind and head for Venus in the Sixth Dimension,” Zkauba suggested. “It is a fine place where we can stand tall and breathe free while we contemplate our next move. My energy levels are not quite optimal yet and I will require a bit of assistance from you to create the gate.”

“Splendid! Because I need you to invite me to leave this place with you. I enraged some half-assed sorcerer and he put a spell on me trapping me in this tenement.”

“Far be it from me to question your methods, my good fellow, but if you had managed to manifest an actual pack animal instead of a wizard temporarily transformed into a pack animal, how did you intend to receive an invitation to part from this place?”

‘Well, I supposed that if I could manifest a pack animal, I would be able to manifest a clairvoyant.”

“Your magical abilities are strong, but your mystic directional abilities require honing. You manifested not only what you wanted but what you needed. In fact, it is my belief that your spell interfered with my spell and that is why I was transformed into a sheep.”

“An interesting theory, Matey, but I was trying to manifest a mule.”

“My good fellow, this is where my spell interfered with your spell. I did not have a clear picture in my mind what form I was planning to take and as I cast my spell, a shepherd walked by the alley with his flock in tow. Our two spells melded, transforming me into a sheep. This seems to have been an odd bit of good fortune.”

“I agree, my friend. Perhaps once we’ve located the treasure, you can teach me to hone my mystic directional abilities. I was fortunate to have an adept navigator during my time on the Seven Seas, for my physical directional skills had a mind of their own as well.”

The silver key commenced to glow and vibrate.

“Captain Sammy, we must make haste!” Zkauba ordered. “Quickly, concentrate on helping me form a gate!”

“Cool, cool, absolutely. Now, don’t forget to invite me through the gate.”

“Yes, of course. Captain Sammy Hagar, will you do me the honor of accompanying me through this gate on to our next adventure?”

“With you all the way, Matey,” the pirate agreed as a shimmering opalescent ovoid appeared in the tenement wall.

With a determined bleat and a shout of “yo-ho-ho!” the pair leaped through the gate.

Acknowledgments

Nyarlathotep is the creation of H.P. Lovecraft, initially appearing in his 1920 story of the same name.

The character Captain Sammy Hagar was created as a tribute to the musician Sammy Hagar, who wrote the 1982 song “Three Lock Box,” which inspired the plot of the first Tales from the Dreamlands book. Although Captain Sammy Hagar’s physical appearance and general personality resemble the person on whom he was modeled, no implication of the real Sammy Hagar’s character is intended.

Portions of the dialogue in the chapter were inspired by the 2001 song “Venus” by Butthole Surfers and the 1986 song “The Final Countdown” by Europe.

The story utilized the 12 November 2020 Tale Weaver prompt “The End.”

The story was also inspired by these prompts from the Reedsy weekly short story contest.
