Charity Sunday: Help with Tara's Medical Costs

Click on the pictures to enlarge them.


Tara is my 12-year-old cat. She has a condition called mast cell disease that causes tumors to form. The disease is usually confined to the skin and underlying tissue but can spread to the internal organs. Tara's internal organs are clear at this time.

She currently looks like a juvenile Skeksis because the surgical team at CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital had to shave her head to remove two tumors plus both mandibular lymph nodes. The tumors and right mandibular lymph node were relatively clear of metastatic material. Unfortunately, the left mandibular lymph node contained a large amount of metastatic material and so the veterinary team is recommending a round of chemotherapy. They feel that her prognosis for a normal lifespan is good if she has chemotherapy.

As you can imagine, this procedure will be costly. My son's and my savings have been wiped out by the cost of testing and surgery for Tara (around $2000 total) plus major repairs made to the household's only vehicle in April to the tune of $3500.

Currently, our household's only income is my disability payment of $1340 per month. This covers monthly bills and not much else. My son is high-functioning autistic and not able to work a conventional job. He receives no income. 

If anyone can or wishes to help with Tara's medical costs, I would be very grateful. My Paypal is paypal.me/chartley65

The description still says "editing and Tarot reading available at reasonable prices." In fairness, I haven't done editing for anyone but myself in a long time and I haven't done any Tarot reading in years, but if you'd like either service, email me at chartley65@gmail.com and put EDITING SERVICES or TAROT READING in all caps. I request a $25 donation for a Tarot reading or $1 per page for editing.

I am willing to write a promotional post at Readers Roost (http://ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com) for anyone who makes a donation of $5 or more. The post will be shared on Twitter.

"Why not on Facebook, Cie?"

Facebook is a pain in the butt. It thinks that posts from Reader's Roost are "abusive" and it blocks them. Also, I get very little engagement from Facebook. Most of my traffic comes from Twitter links.

Here are other ways that you can help if you'd prefer not to make a direct donation.

Buy me a coffee or sign up for a $5 per month subscription from Buy Me a Coffee. Paid posts on this site do not include explicit erotica.

Peregrine's Briny Obsession #MFRWHooks #RainbowSnippets #SnipSun #8Sunday

 


Genre:
M/M erotica, sci-fi

Length:
3000 words (approximate)

Mature Content Advisory:
This post contains no explicit erotic content. The book that it is excerpted from contains explicit descriptions of erotic activity between consenting adults and is intended for mature readers only.

Blurb:
After escaping from the clutches of submissive mad scientist General Darden Uffe Bissette and his dangerously seductive amphibious pleasure clone Finn Storm, renegade military officer Colonel Zaccheus Ionescu and runaway roughneck Iker Macauley brought their captivated comrades to the mysterious monks at Temple Bratuns. 
Ohannes was swiftly swayed from his obsession with Finn by the tender touch of the handsome young Brother Vishal Mohammad Beumers. Peregrine Varga, however, remains deeply in Finn’s thrall. Can the monks work their lusty magic on the mesmerized roughneck, or is Iker fated to lose his best friend with benefits to the merman’s infectious kiss?

Snippet:

As the sedative wore off, Peregrine Varga’s mind was filled with the insatiable need to find Finn Storm, the amphibious mutant pleasure clone designed by the unscrupulous General Darden Uffe Bissette. The serum in Finn’s saliva had Peregrine mesmerized. He was fighting to regain control of his mind but was unable to escape the memory of Finn’s salty kiss and the bliss of floating beneath the waves with the beautiful merman.

“Finn!” Peregrine moaned, straining against his restraints. “You can’t keep me here! I must return to him! I order you to release me at once!”

Buy Links

This story is still under construction. It is due for release in early June to coincide with the MFRW Steam hop and MFRW Author Retweet Day. 

In the meantime, you can purchase the first five hot Cloned Heat Cliffhangers for your erotica collection, or read them free with Kindle Unlimited. 


Announcements
I am pleased to announce the new Roost Recommendations feature on the Readers Roost blog. Click the link below to check out the first installment.

During late 2020 and early 2021, I was actively involved in creating promo posts in conjunction with several book tour services as well as independently for fellow authors. My participation in these activities has dwindled considerably due to my immersion in several projects of my own. 

Readers on Twitter often ask for book recommendations, which I enjoy giving because I like to help my fellow authors. Sadly, Readers Roost has had nothing but brief, boring blurb posts for the last several months. However, that problem has been resolved.

The weekly Roost Recommendations post provides links to the posts of authors from the four blog hops that I participate in regularly, plus buy links where applicable. I can now share the Roost Recommendation post with readers on Twitter. 

Hopefully, the Roost Recommendations posts will generate interest in the works of my fellow authors as well as making up for the fact that I am sometimes a bit crap when it comes to commenting. Instead of just a dumb quip (or crickets) from me, you now know that your work is being shared regularly on Twitter. I think this is a win-win solution and I hope it helps generate some interest for all of you.

Don't forget to sign up for Naughty Netherworld News and be among the first to know what's happening in the Naughty Netherworld.

Readers Roost: Roost Recommendations 24 May 2021

Readers Roost: Roost Recommendations 24 May 2021:   Image by Pexels from Pixabay Welcome to the first edition of Roost Recommendations. I participate in several blog hops to promote my own ...

Check out this cool new feature from Reader's Roost. My poor book blog has been sadly neglected while I work on my own projects. Plus, I suck at doing blog hop visits, and I leave lame comments on the ones I do visit. Also, I'm not sure my multitude of tweets and other shares are very effective.

Enter the weekly Roost Recommendations post where I feature buy links and blurbs from my fellow blog hop participants. I can then share the weekly post on Twitter whenever someone is looking for book recommendations. 

Have I finally come up with an idea that doesn't suck? I certainly hope so!

Naughty Netherworld News 23 May 2021

 Happy Sunday to my two wonderful subscribers and an okay Sunday to those who haven't gotten with the program and signed up for Naughty Netherworld News yet.

Get with the program and sign up here if you want to have more Happy Sundays.

http://bit.ly/NaughtyNetherworldNews 

First things first. I finally wrote a new post on the Good Stuff from Grover blog all about why I love cooking with the Oster Roaster Oven and Instant Pot. You can check it out here.

https://www.goodstufffromgrover.com/2021/05/sunday-dinner-at-grover-hotel-make-your.html

My cat Tara's surgery went well. She looks like a Skeksis right now because they had to shave the fur off her face to remove the tumors. I wish she'd lie near my right arm rather than Bogarting the pillows that I use to support my bad left arm, but cats will be cats. I'll be talking about Tara in more detail next week.

I still struggle with visiting everyone's blogs on the hops. I've had an idea so my tweets might be more effective. I often find people in my Twitter feed requesting book suggestions. Reader's Roost has been a bit dormant with me working on multiple projects and I'd like to remedy that. I was thinking that rather than individual tweets I'd compile a post with blurbs and links to everyone's snippets. That way people looking for new authors can find them more easily.

I guess that's about it for right now. I'm still working to get December Mood (my third poetry volume) edited and formatted by the end of May, I need to get Cloned Heat VI finished so I can upload it in time for the MFRW Steam Hop and MFRW Author Retweet Day. As always, I'm writing new chapters from my big project.

I've seen a big increase in visitors to the Naughty Netherworld Press blog, but nobody's buying anything. I try not to think about it, but it's a bit discouraging.

I honestly don't think I'm a bad writer even if I'm an acquired taste that most people don't acquire. I think I'm crap at marketing and promotion. I really wish I had the money to pay someone else to do it.

That's all for now. Peace!

First Look Friday: When Everything Goes Wrong

 

Copyright: Serhii Bobyk
The princess Ondina

Just Another Day

“In the name of Vulxoix, Qweh, what have you done?”

The color drained from Princess Ondina’s face as she entered her laboratory to find all thirteen members of her core staff lying on gurneys, each with horrific injuries inflicted upon them.

Ondina’s half-brother King Qweh guffawed at his sister’s revulsion. Although Qweh dwarfed her by more than half a meter and outweighed her by more than 100 kilograms, much of his weight being powerful muscle, Ondina whirled on her brother, kicking him as hard as she could in the shin. Although he was momentarily startled, Ondina’s face reddened as Qweh burst out laughing.

“An excellent strike, Baby Sister,” he chortled, enraging Ondina by chucking her under the chin. “Not enough to incapacitate me, but, there again, combat never was your forte. Oh, you would be a formidable enough opponent against an ordinary adversary, even against one of the guards. Ah, but as you can see, none of them can best me.”

“That’s probably because your goons held them down while you savaged them,” Ondina snapped. “I despise you with every molecule in my miserable being. I wish you were dead!”

“Then why not make me so, Ondina?” Qweh jeered, stroking Ondina’s cheek in a suggestive fashion that sent a wave of nausea through her. “Sweet, quiet Ondina, blessed with the power to cure or kill. Why don’t you reverse your empathic abilities and twist your astral grip around my heart, wringing the life from me as you burned the ability to grow new life from your own womb? Come now, Sister, if you loathe me as much as you say you do, why not strike me down?”

Ondina pushed away from Qweh, turning her attention to a tall, slender young man with shoulder-length hair the color of warm loam. He was bleeding from multiple wounds and angry bruises marred his pale skin. Blood bubbled from his lips as he gave a quiet moan. Ondina gently pressed a hand to his stomach and zircon light flowed from her fingers. The man gripped the princess’ hand, pulling it away from his body.

“Aqnax, I can heal you,” Ondina pleaded.

“Please, your majesty, don’t,” the man insisted. “Dear Princess Ondina, I love you with all my soul in life or in death. You are sweet and giving and my fidelity is ever yours. But oh, Your Majesty, I beg you, let me depart now for the Fields of Strans where I will be reunited with my beloved brother Aattul.”

“If this is truly your wish, my friend,” Ondina agreed reluctantly.

Ondina held her hands over her bodyguard’s heart. Dark blue light streamed from her fingers and tears flowed down her cheeks.

“My friend and protector Aqnax, I release you from your broken body to reunite with your beloved brother in the Fields of Strans. Go in peace. It was my pleasure to have known you.”

Cloned Heat V Available Now from KU #MFRWHooks #RainbowSnippets #SnipSun #8Sunday

 


Genre:
M/M erotica, sci-fi

Length:
3000 words (approximate)

Mature Content Advisory:
This post contains no explicit erotic content. The book that it is excerpted from contains explicit descriptions of erotic activity between consenting adults and is intended for mature readers only.

Blurb:

In “The Siren’s Bite,” Colonel Ionescu revealed the truth about Finn to Iker and Peregrine. Meanwhile, Ohannes begged for Finn’s bite, becoming bonded to the amphibious pleasure clone.  

General Bissette revealed that he was more slave than master to the sexy merman and was rewarded with a hearty spanking and a lusty romp with Ohannes. While Finn’s attentions were focused on directing the hot man-to-man action, Iker, Colonel Ionescu, and Peregrine put their rescue plan into action. Unfortunately, Peregrine was bitten by Finn and had to be subdued along with the other men.

Ionescu and Iker set out for the monastery, hoping to find a way to break Finn’s spell over their comrades.

Snippet:

“These monks are either as horny as the rest of us plebes or that’s a weapon,” Iker quipped.

“Me suppose us either find out easy way or hard way,” Colonel Ionescu suggested.

“I vote for the easy way. I’m tired as hell after our little wrestling match with our mind-fucked comrades. Any other time I’d be up for playing rough with this buff pleasure clone and his buddies, but tonight’s not that night.”

“Me hearin’ you,” Ionescu agreed. He turned to address the temple guard.

Ionescu and Iker set out for the monastery, hoping to find a way to break Finn’s spell over their comrades.

Snippet:

The transport reached the monastery a couple of hours after nightfall as the men in the back were starting to stir. The artificial moon of Igrobos cast zircon light on the grounds. A slender, sinewy bald man in his mid-twenties stood guard.

The man was bare-chested save for a solar emblem held in place by black straps crossing over his shoulders and under his arms. He wore a gold shantap with an earth-toned overwrap embroidered with black and white webbing and secured at the waist with a white woven belt. A black cord terminating in a white, flared, cone-shaped object with raised ridges and protruding fringes hung from the cord.

Thirsty Thursday: The Party: Small Voices and Grownup Glimpses

 

Free use image by Emily Wills Photography on Pixabay

The limp body of a girl in early adolescence lay supported against the massive roots of a Terqrix tree in the Okruiks Botanical Garden behind the grand palace of Os’aen, home to West Zecor’s ruling family. Her form-fitting red dress and heavy makeup made her appear older than her true age. The glamorous red pumps that matched her dress had been kicked off as she ran.

The girl’s hair partially covered her distressed face. Spectral hands reached from the ground and gently caressed her shoulders, arms, and legs, subtly repositioning her to make her more comfortable as disembodied voices whispered into the night air.

Nonzels strets mesa, Ondina. Elphean rihno. Mukves huz’e shomox.”

We love you, Ondina. Don’t give up. Help is coming.

Genre:
M/M erotica, sci-fi

Length:
3000 words (approximate)

Blurb:

In “The Siren’s Bite,” Colonel Ionescu revealed the truth about Finn to Iker and Peregrine. Meanwhile, Ohannes begged for Finn’s bite, becoming bonded to the amphibious pleasure clone.  

General Bissette revealed that he was more slave than master to the sexy merman and was rewarded with a hearty spanking and a lusty romp with Ohannes. While Finn’s attentions were focused on directing the hot man-to-man action, Iker, Colonel Ionescu, and Peregrine put their rescue plan into action. Unfortunately, Peregrine was bitten by Finn and had to be subdued along with the other men.

Ionescu and Iker set out for the monastery, hoping to find a way to break Finn’s spell over their comrades.

Snippet:

Colonel Ionescu kept the transport vehicle low and slow, resisting the urge to hit the hit the hover-jets. The vehicle was unlicensed decommissioned military salvage and Ionescu wanted to avoid attention from the air patrol. Ionescu noticed that the normally impatient Iker seemed transfixed by the beauty of the surrounding forest.

“Pretty, yah?” the Colonel inquired.

“Yeah, Man, it’s gorgeous. Sometimes me and Perry would look through binoculars from the top of the rig and say that one day we’d go camping in the forest, but we always wound up either staying at the rig on our downtime or going into town to find a way to kill time. Either way, we always ended up in some kind of sex game. Ain’t no better way to wind down after a hard day’s work than fucking a dozen of your best friends, right?”

That's the first eight sentences. If that's your limit, this is your stop. If you'd like more, read on.

“Dat be de way of t’ings,” Ionescu laughed. “’Course your fuck-buddy might not be such a good fren’, but when de time come to get down, dere be somethin’ dat keep you comin’ back for more even if most of de time you wanna punch him in de face.”

“You mean Bissette?” Iker smirked. “Well, I never got to meet his fuck-buddy side. I only saw the punchable face. But from what I heard, the little shit’s a damn fine lay. That salty little mer-slut Finn was miffed at our boy Ohannes for enjoying General Tin-Horn’s cock a little too much.”

“Bissette be a good fuck,” Ionescu admitted. “He like me to be de one drivin’ de train when de geyser gonna erupt. He let de other fellas fuck him first, den me come in and plow ‘em all. Me admit me put up wit’ Bissette’s shit ‘cause me an’ de boys havin’ fine times playin’ his games. But den him build Finn and dat little fucker take over. Me suppose dat me still be dere bein’ Finn and Bissette’s fuck-muscle if us not find you boys. Me ain’t got nothin’ better to do.”

“Yeah, Perry and me would still be mining Gaccov, likely till the day we dropped, if we hadn’t found Ohannes. Same reason as you. We didn’t have nothin’ better to do and the after-hours fucking was good. Hell, I was bred to be a physical powerhouse, which means that I was either gonna end up being an agricultural worker, being in the military, or being a miner or a rigger.”

“Same, Mon. You like bein’ a rigger?”

“Yeah, I liked it a lot. I could have requested a transfer to agriculture or the military, but I liked being a roughneck. I was glad I wasn’t bred to be an administrator or an executive or a pleasure clone. I like being strong and feeling like I’ve done an honest day’s work, and I sure as hell don’t want to be anybody’s slave. But when it comes down to it, me and Perry have been Hangiri’s slaves for all these years. The corporation literally owns us.”

“Dat’s de truf of bein’ a clone, Mon. De law don’t see us as human, so Hangiri or de military or Mon-Agri can do what dem want wit’ us, so long as it ain’t outright cruelty. So long as dem keep us fed an healthy and ain’t beatin’ on us, de human rights counsel ain’t gonna crack down. Dey fuck us from de incubation tank to de grave, an’ it’s all legal.”

Where to Buy

Unfortunately, with the disaster that the last couple of weeks have been and my subsequent psychological breakdown, this book is still in the WIP stages. I hope to finish it this coming week. Hopefully, Amazon won't give me a ration of misery this time. I designed the damn cover. 

In the meantime, you can grab the first four books in the Cloned Heat series from Amazon. They're free with Kindle Unlimited or just 99 cents apiece to own.

You can also join me on Patreon to receive the PDF version of each new Cloned Heat book monthly, plus a couple of other little perks, for just a buck a month.

Sign up for the Naughty Netherworld Newsletter and get the inside scoop on everything. Published weekly-ish or thereabouts.

Update 10 May 2021

 It has been a very difficult month. As some of you know, my car died on me on a remote country road and getting it repaired wiped out my savings. 

My self-esteem is pretty shaky at the best of times and it really took a hit when I thought back on all the stupid things that I did in the past and the fact that I never managed to save any money. I have ADHD and high levels of anxiety plus complex PTSD. I also tend to experience imposter syndrome whenever I feel like I'm doing well with anything. In other words, I'm a hot mess.

I almost quit both writing and reviewing. I'm still having a lot of trouble making myself do book promotions.

It took me six weeks to review a short, easy-to-read book.

I finally finished the book review and have started writing again.

Any suggestions for free or inexpensive ways to promote my work would be greatly appreciated.

I'm honestly still recovering from the bullshit relating to the 2.5-star rating on Goodreads. I eradicated all of the Carnal Invasion books and have wiped the slate clean. 

I know that "writers are supposed to have a thick skin."

I don't. Inside my hard exterior is a mushy, worthless interior that is easily wounded.

I hate the idea that only happy, confident people can succeed or are worth anything.

I don't think I'm ever going to get my shit together.

I try to write with no expectations. Results may vary. I learned the hard way that seeking approval tends to lead to bad ends.

I forgot that yesterday was IWSG day. But hardly anybody ever reads my posts anyway, so, whatever.

I have had a very difficult week.

I should be getting my car back today.

I have removed all of the Carnal Invasion books from Kindle except for the collection of four short stories. They need to be reworked if they are to be re-released. In all honesty, this is not likely to happen.

My downward spiral actually started when I went on Goodreads to find the URL for one of my books and saw that my overall author rating on Goodreads was only 2.5 stars. Goodreads does not have all of my books. This low rating is because someone lambasted Coming to Earth, the first book in the Carnal Invasion series, giving it one star. 

I swear I am going to punch this Grammarly smiley emoji. What about this discourse comes off as happy?

Anyway...

Of course, not everyone is going to like every story, but I am not sure why people had it in for that story. It's not the best story I've ever written, but it's harmless. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for it.

Anyway, it's gone now and I'll not be bringing it back.

I'm normally a fairly prolific writer. I've never measured up to the "write at least 2500 words a day or you're a worthless piece of shit" measure that some writers insist is the benchmark for writerly worth, but I average about 1000 words per day.

This week, I've struggled to get 1000 words written at all and I strongly considered just deleting everything I've ever written and disengaging myself entirely. 

I did mull over the possibility of suicide. Nobody would miss me. However, from a utilitarian standpoint, it would throw my son's life into chaos and I felt it a bit unfair to do that a week before his birthday. Happy birthday, Son, here's a huge mess for you to deal with. Nah, that would be a shite thing to do.

I have found it very difficult to do the book reviews for the Online Book Club recently and I haven't been able to do the book promos for Readers Roost at all. 

I know that most people don't like me. I've resigned myself to that. 

I suppose I need to resign myself to the fact that what I write is interesting only to me. It's stupid of me to believe that I will ever have any kind of an audience. I don't know what I was thinking.

Seriously, Grammarly, "optimistic?" Is there even a single word in this piece that sounds optimistic to anybody? Fuck's sake.

All right, let me try to answer the question.

May 5 question - Has any of your readers ever responded to your writing in a way that you didn't expect? If so, did it surprise you?

Yeah, I have, and it was very reminiscent of the way people treated me when I was in school. One person picked apart a piece that I had written for the WEP Challenge. It was a vampire bit. She started her critique off with "I don't usually read vampire stories..."

I inquired why she was reading this one then since such stories weren't her bag.

"Because that's what you're supposed to do for the challenge."

Anyway, she was a twit, so I volleyed a bit of subtle snark in her direction and moved on, expecting that most of the other comments would be pretty neutral.

Instead, I got piled on.

It felt very much like being back in school. 

I hadn't even written anything terribly controversial. Maybe the fact that the vampire couple in my story were gay men bothered some people, I don't know. I probably will never know.

Although the people at WEP handled things well, this incident will probably always bother me. It's very much representative of the way I've been treated my entire life for being socially awkward and different.

People love to say "it gets better," but it really doesn't. Sometimes one just finds avenues to remove themselves from a situation.

It hasn't gotten much better for me, and I don't imagine that it ever will.

Cie, for what it's worth
(and it ain't worth much)
