Happy Holidays to Everyone Except Blogger

 


Hi Dickfaces.

This is a blog created to promote my books. 

I can't very well do that if you take down the posts promoting my books.

I do not use spam links and I am not engaging in any false advertising. The links all lead to actual books that actually exist. I cannot guarantee that anyone will like said books. However, I am allowing people the chance to decide for themselves. 

Piss off and stop unpublishing my legitimate promotional posts.

“I suppose there’s a bit of the investigator in my blood,” Macario said. “My father is a writer. He takes the driest, most complex subjects and makes them palatable to people who know little to nothing of science. I imagine I would have pursued a career in the sciences myself if I hadn’t had personal reasons to study the criminal mind.”

“Are these reasons now leading you to Arizona?”

“Yes. I have reasons to believe the fugitive I’ve been pursuing for many years is there.”


About the Author:

C. L. Hart, the owner and sole employee of Naughty Netherworld Press, is spoken of in hushed tones. She is described as The Mad Scribe of the Northeastern Colorado Plains, The Terrible Old Woman, and The Author That Should Not Be.

When not penning sanity-destroying works of dystopian fiction, Lovecraftian fantasy, or old-school horror with the occasional sweet romance thrown in to upset the cosmic apple cart, Ms. Hart enjoys creating baked goods she hopes will be considered palatable.

Ms. Hart shares a home in a remote rural town of 134 souls with her adult son and three cats. Her sense of fashion is best described as Early Twenty-First Century Unmade Bed. This disabled former nurse can usually be found arguing with herself about subplots or rehabilitating eldritch horrors.

The Hops


I haven't been able to participate in Charity Sunday very often this year because my own financial situation is rather precarious. The monthly food pantry day at Friendship Alliance Church is a great help all year long, and I hope to give them at least a $5 donation to give back to them a little. 

I'm not religious, but this is one church that walks the talk, and I appreciate their efforts.







Happy holidays from the fiends at Naughty Netherworld Press!

James' YouTube channel, Zowie J's Good Stuff, was devoted to playing pranks and hawking his products. His gray t-shirt with the disco dancing dinosaur was part of that merchandise line, as evidenced by the Zowie J logo with its chunky letters and the rainbow-hued shooting star underlining it.

“Could this room get any grosser?” James groaned, pointing his phone camera at the water-stained white walls of the waiting room where he sat on a dilapidated Russian violet couch. “Also, like, what décor scheme were they aiming for in this dump? The walls say ‘institution,’ but this disgusting old sofa says, ‘Old West Whorehouse.’ The table with granola bars, beef jerky, and sports drinks is kind of avocado green; I feel like the 70s barfed all over me, but I don’t know if it’s the 1870s or the 1970s.”

Krampus has arrived to wish everyone a Krampy Krissmas. 
I swear, I didn't invite him. He must have smelled the apple pie I baked for yesterday's dinner and invited himself in for a slice. 


Parsifal Goes Home For the Holidays #MFRWHooks

 


Genre: Gay Romance, Holiday Romance, M/M Romance, Romantic Comedy

#bisexual #m/m romance #polyamory #role playing

Heat Level

5 Flames

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

ASIN: ‎ B0CP9WP2DF

Publisher: ‎ Naughty Netherworld Press

Publication date: ‎ December 23, 2023

Length: 14,500 words (Novelette)

Blurb

Parsifal returns home to spend the Christmas holidays with his family. As he arrives at the airport, he is greeted by his brother Hart and his ex-boyfriend Bobby. Bobby is accompanied by his new boyfriend Seth. As they spend the day together, Parsifal notices something peculiar. Bobby seeks comfort from Hart rather than Seth after a minor accident at the park.

Meanwhile, Parsifal finds himself drawn to hot nerd Seth. The more time they spend together, the more Parsifal believes the feeling is mutual.

However, Parsifal's Christmas holiday is about to get even crazier. His redneck relatives are coming over for Christmas Eve dinner, and Parsifal is dreading the chaos that is sure to ensue. Between his family's quirky behavior and Seth's enticing presence, Parsifal’s vacation is shaping up to be anything but relaxing.

This is the second book in The Shape Of Heat series. It can be read as a standalone, but the first book, Awakening, should be read first if you wish to know more about the background of Parsifal and his girlfriends Candi and Luisa.

Over the summer, things heated beyond the boiling point between me and my longtime friends Candi and Luisa. We grew even closer as the fall that never looks like fall rolled into the Caribbean island where we work and play. Our boss had nothing but praise for us as resort workers, and we were popular writers at Climax Productions. Everyone needs to rest sometime, though, so I was glad to be heading home to Tennessee to reconnect with family and friends over the winter holidays.

I was especially looking forward to seeing my big brother Hart and my ex-boyfriend Bobby. Although Bobby and I broke up after I cheated on him, we remained close friends. Plus, I was looking forward to meeting Bobby's new guy Seth.

Macario climbed into the car. As the men set off into the pounding rainstorm, Pika waved to them. The speed Dom drove would normally not have worried Macario, but he could hardly see the road ahead.

“I’ve never heard of Snowman Railways before,” Macario said, trying to distract himself from the velocity of the vehicle.

“Only elves and snowbirds have,” Dom laughed. “So, an FBI agent. Fascinating! Did you always want to be a detective, or did you fall into the profession?”

Snippet

Spend 24 hours locked in an old insane asylum and win a million dollars. It's been 26 hours, so why is the door still locked? 

James Zhao, a massively popular thirty-year-old social media influencer, sent the message. He was a slender, angular man standing five foot nine inches tall and weighing 133 pounds. He had a square-jawed face with thin lips and a birdlike nose. The tips of his spiky temple fade haircut were dyed purple; a lavender metal ring adorned his right ring finger, and he wore sparkly thistle-colored glass earrings.
