Dear Short Little Rebel,

You make a post, minus video, closing comments off and state your feelings. While I get your point, that in almost every case we read, see or hear, there are TWO-SIDES to every coin, your hurtful words based on your “opinion” and yes, you state fact when it is in your “FEELINGS” is doing much the same as your chastising post.

Both sides (based on your comment the teacher didn’t know Caleb thought he was speaking) failed, Caleb. The one in the end that was hurt most, was Caleb. The Teacher is grown and though the hateful rhetoric poised at her, was vulgar and mean, she, as a capable adult, can deep down rationalize “some” of it.

Caleb, cannot.

Many things could have been done to prevent this.Mom whispering to the teacher “he wants to say Goble-Gooble” because, what would allowing a little boy to say Gobble, Gobble have hurt? Two simple words could have given a large gift to a little boy who struggles every day.

I’m the parent of such a child… their struggle daily, is FACT.

In the video you conveniently left off– you can hear “gasps” from other parents as the teacher “Snatches” and yes… I saw the video. SHE SNATCHED it with force and turned her back on a clearly, upset child. Autistic or not, that was a DOUCHE move and she’s paying the piper for it. If, as you state violent threats are coming her way, than no–that’s taking things way too far. But she DID react inappropriately to this situation.

I SAW the video and that is FACT.

According to you, MOM did too. You go on to say, he never attended practices, maybe that was for the best? Either way, a simple Gooble-Gooble, an innocent want, of an innocent child was ignored, and you say “he’s entitled” but then the mom “wants others to treat him the same”–well Ms. Short Rebel, there is no “regular” with Autism. It hurts. It can cut a parent to the bone knowing our child rarely fits in, no matter how hard they may try. Then we see beautiful actions and emotions so raw, many other children wouldn’t have experienced and our hearts are filled with hope.

Autism is a cursed blessing.

We have brilliant, beautiful children that are of their own world but yet which we often cannot merge into our own.

Until you can understand this, I suggest laying off the “entitled” comments.

You haven’t walked down the bumpy, golden road.

Ahh, Thanksgiving… complete with ghosts of holidays past. Those being humiliating memories of last year’s revelry gone wild: jail cells, a tattoo and rose left on Kristi James pillow by someone she can’t remember.

Toss in two brothers who, while loving, had needled her with vivid imagery on what might have happened during that fateful rendezvous at the local HoJo’s. Seriously, what’s a girl to do? She’d run like hell from Harpers Ferry back to her apartment and job in Alexandria.
She’s praying this year’s holiday ends a bit more traditional. But between exploding turkey’s, cranberry fights, and the winter storm threatening to lock them all together for

God only knew how long, she’s fairly certain her Norman Rockwell hopes have flown the coop.

Adding another layer to this casserole of disaster, the high school boyfriend—who’d cheated on her two days before prom—returns, claiming to have made a horrid mistake all those years prior.

Amid all this, what has her heart flip-flopping is catching her best friend Simon getting cozy with his latest girlfriend.

Thing is, she isn’t sure why its bothering her so badly.

Sometimes it takes coming home again… to discover how lost we’ve really been.

Now– Who here has little ones or big ones with the hearts of wee ones? I’m big on the whole decorating and cooking with holiday inspired dishes.

A few ideas-

Monster Fingers and Blood Soup –  (roll flat, breadsticks and stuff with ham and cheese. Then using a knife score in the indents of knuckles and a finger nail. Last, paint nail with egg white dyed with green or blue food coloring then bake for 8-10 min.) Serve with Tomato (Blood) soup!

(Not my picture but this gives you the idea)

Frankenstein Casserole – ( Simply make a thick chili however you normally do, then top with uncooked cornbread mix. Slice green pepper and add to top (hair) Red bell pepper (for lips) 2 green olives w/pimentos (eyes) sliced onions (teeth) baby carrot (nose) chopped black olives (eye brows) and lastly two large black olives down at the sides of “neck” for his “conductors.” Bake for about 30-45 min or until cornbread is browned and golden. The face stays PUT as the cornbread is to thick for it to sink through! YUMMY and the kids LOVE helping create!

I’ll be sharing MORE treat ideas throughout the month!

H.C. Brown’s highly anticipated release… One Night in a Dungeon!

heather

 

ONE NIGHT IN A DUNGEON

 

 

Are you ready to step into the dungeons and minds of three edge-playing Doms?  Luminosity Publishing brings you the much anticipated, One Night in a Dungeon anthology.

A collection of red-hot M/M, M/M/M, BDSM stories written especially for you by three international bestselling authors, H.C. Brown, Tamsin Baker, and Dylan McEwan.

 

 

Whatever your flavor, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this erotic mixture of hot stories, chosen by me, especially for the connoisseurs of kink. . . .H.C. Brown

 

Master Luke by H.C. Brown: 

 

After so many subs, the men’s names have faded into sated memories of lust, with one exception, Master Luke’s vanilla virgin, Brian, and the one night in his dungeon, he will never forget. 

 

Master Luke is always looking for a well-lubricated willing ass, and unmarked flesh to flog. He loves men, all men, the twinks, the bears, young, old, innocent or man-whores makes no difference once they are tied to his bench and under his flogger. After so many subs, the men’s names he enjoyed have all faded into sated memories of lust, with one exception, his vanilla virgin, Brian, and the one night in his dungeon, he will never forget.

 

Excerpt:

I’m looking for down and dirty, hot and willing, so if you’re looking for a happy every after in my dungeon, you’ve come to the wrong guy.

The BDSM club, Red, is my domain. I enjoy the scent of men, especially when wrapped in the rich musky male smell of sex and leather. I like to take my time looking over the mix of subs on offer. They say there is someone for everyone but for me it makes no difference once I have them tied to my bench, and begging for my cock … and they all do … beg, I mean. It is the sweetest sound and almost as good as the little moans they make when they come.

Red is a safe environment with regulation testing for all members, and tonight I’ve set my sights on a sweet piece of virgin ass by the name of Brian. Fuck! The moment, he walked past, his face all flushed, looking around excited, he could have stood on a table and shouted, “Look at me. I’m a vanilla virgin.”

Fuck, my cock hardened so damn hard it made my head spin. He had that cute look, unsullied, fresh, and oh so innocent. I almost came in my pants when he did the unforgivable and met my gaze with a challenge I couldn’t ignore. The noise around me faded into a buzz, and I grabbed his arm to spin him around to face me. “You looking for some action, pup?”

He gave me that, “who me” look and wet his bottom lip in an unconscious come-on. The blush staining his cheeks made my cock grow an extra inch. The damp head pressed against the rough zipper of my pants sending waves of delicious sensation straight to my balls. I wanted to throw him over the nearest table, rip off his pants, and do him dry. I bit back the wave of insatiable need and sucked in a deep breath trying to curb my enthusiasm.

“I–I’m not sure.” He shuffled his feet and his gaze settled on my hard-on. “Maybe…”

 

Master Tony by Tamsin Baker

 

Master Tony is ready to fulfill Nathan’s wicked fantasies, and if his sub can go the distance, he might decide to keep him. 

 

Nathan needs a Dom and a good, long night more than anything. He enters Club Extreme with hopes of meeting Big D Dom—a Dom he’s met online. What he doesn’t expect is for Master Tony to fulfill every fantasy Nathan has ever had, and he invites him back for another night!

Master Tony wants a sub to serve him, to love and whip. Nathan makes all the right noises online, and when they meet in real life, the chemistry is incredible. But he has a decision to make, his sub lives in another state. So what’s a big Dom meant to do when his perfect boy lives so far away?

 

Excerpt:

The first crack of the whip felt almost soothing. The leather wrapped itself around my belly then flicked back. I grabbed onto the chains and let my head drop.

Over and over the sting of the whip made me cry out, and I loved the burn. My cock was back to half mast, and I let the pain drop me down, down, and further down. I was one with the moment, swaying my hips to the music in my head.

Master Tony flicked the whip in a particularly quick arch, and I’d cried out “yellow” before I made the conscious choice to end the session. He stopped instantly, moving close to press his now naked chest to my burning back.

“Good boy, pretty boy, brave boy.” Master Tony crooned to me and stroked my hair, while the burn in my back turned to something pleasing.

He untied me from the chains, and I cried out at the pain my sore limbs protested. Master Tony rubbed my aching arms as I fell back onto him. He wrapped his arms around me. My eyes were still closed.

“Lie on your tummy, baby boy, and I’ll get the cream.”

I moved forward, but Daddy helped me lie on my belly, my stiff prick hard under me. I didn’t know if he meant lube or cream for my back but at that moment I didn’t care.

Cool fingers rubbed into my back, and I moaned, “Thank you, Daddy.”

“Daddy” almost seemed an appropriate term for Master Tony as he cared for me. He massaged the cream into my back in a soothing rhythm, moving down my spine until he found my still-burning ass. I lifted myself up wantonly, and he chuckled.

“On your knees.”

I moved to my knees, lethargy pushed to the back of my mind as my body began to throb with awareness.

Ranulf by Dylan McEwan

 

With his Viking physique, Nordic godlike features, and insatiable sexual appetite, Ranulf is the supreme Alpha male, a Dom’s Dom—and his underground dungeon is by no means his darkest secret.

 

Submissive Ryan is head-over-heels in love with the handsome, dominant Brandon Lewis. Ryan doesn’t care that the man can’t commit to monogamy but enjoys an endless string of casual hook-ups and one-night-stands. On the contrary, the masochist revels in being humiliated by Brandon’s boasting of his many conquests. But while the man is so totally open about his casual promiscuity, he is very secretive about the rest of his life, and Ryan knows nothing about his background.

Who is the mysterious Ranulf and what is his relationship with Brandon?

Does his Dom have a Dom of his own?

When promised ‘one helluva night’ and taken to a mysterious underground dungeon, he has no idea that submitting to the Thor-like Nordic Master Ranulf is going to change his life forever, in the most incredulous fantastical way.

A sexually charged, explicit BDSM romance.

 

Excerpt:

“I knew they’d make a cute cage couple,” the leather-clad master commented. “It’s fun watching two subs together.” He went up to the cage and reached a hand between the bars to stroke Kristztian’s hair. “Kiss” he ordered, stepping back again to stand beside the other, lesser Dom.

Ryan pulled back a little from the other lad and looked to Brandon. No matter how many other men they had sex with, the rules were no kissing and no sleeping with. As magnetic and intense as Ranulf was, he couldn’t break their rules for him or for anyone, not without consulting his boyfriend first. Ranulf’s eyes narrowed and he pressed his lips together in a hard thin line for a few seconds before speaking.

“My dungeon, my rules. Down here, you do what I say. If you refuse, you will be hurt.”

Adrenalin rushed through Ryan’s body in a fearful glorious surge. He was a little scared, yes, but elated at the same time. After all, as long as he was compliant, there was surely no need to be really afraid; and if Ranulf went too far, Brandon would step in anyway, he would always protect him. He looked back at Kristztian, met his gaze briefly, then leaned in and pressed his mouth against his. He was cool and moist and tasted of cinnamon. He tentatively, slowly, drew his tongue across his lips as an erotic invitation. The invite was accepted – he parted his lips just enough to allow the gentle oral penetration. He lightly rested his hands on the other slave’s shoulders and felt a hand tangling into his hair.

“Tell me, has Ryan ever fucked? Been the top?” Ranulf asked Brandon, still keeping his gaze fixed on their two boys kissing and lightly petting.

“No, never” he replied, shaking his head. “He’s completely submissive. Why?”

“The top isn’t always the dominant partner in a relationship, you know, that’s a common misconception” he told him. “And in a BDSM relationship, a total submissive can definitely top if it’s done right. It all depends on how it’s played out. If you have an established and recognized Power Dynamic, then getting your Bottom to Top doesn’t threaten to blur the lines. You’re still completely in control. You can humiliate, embarrass and discomfit a sub by forcing them to fuck, though they usually discover it’s fun after the initial awkwardness is past. You’re getting turned on watching them making out. Imagine watching them screw!” Suppressing a smirk, the more assertive male sat down on the fuck stool beside him, legs wide, hands in pockets. “Kristztian, get his cock out. Make him hard.” he ordered his slave boy, who obeyed without any hesitation.

Hurricane Hermine & Writerly Update

 

HELLO from the dark ages! Day 5 and there are still 14,000 some without power. Things in town are rather wonky as stores restock their shelves from having to toss their foodstuffs. The cell phones are for the most back up, though occasionally still a little slow and yesterday we lost internet until late in the evening.

But guess what?!! The town has been gracious. Everyone. So for all the bad press we get, strangers opened doors, ppl randomly made offers of hot food, showers or even dips in their pools to cool off. Even hot, tired and stanky from desperate needs of showers, the citizens of Tallahassee stepped up, stayed optimistic and jumped forth to help their neighbors.

Most common request we received were dips in the pool and charging of cell phones.

Our loss was the pool pump motor. Sucker won’t come back on which means a green pool until the hubs can get time off to replace it. Also, a ceiling fan oddly won’t come either. Power is up and down. Popped off this morning, but sprang back on quickly. (YAY!!!)

Utility crews have worked ROUND THE CLOCK getting power restored. Their families haven’t seen them since this storm hit, and MUCH GRATITUDE goes out to all of them.

THANK YOU GUYS!!! (And Gals!)

Now onto writerly related events.

Through the month of September Amazon has placed both, Books one and two, on super .99 sale! Yep, grab up Swamp Magic (Bk1) or Under the Full Moon (Bk2) at this amazing price.

My shifters are locally found critters and my heroes don’t turn into, but rather take on the unique qualities of these amazing underdogs of the southern region.

Grace is such a beautiful and kind hearted soul. She is powerful in her own right. The fact that she might be able to find happiness in Damien, after all that she has lost, is precious. Now only if they can find the time to find out between someone trying to hurt her, kidnap her, or kill her.

 

Also, mark your calendars about the upcoming October 20th, 9 PM EST, Halloween Party at Writerspace featuring the authors of Loose Id, Publishing! Prizes will be awarded at the end of the party.

Wish me luck as I jump back into a semi routine state and hopefully finishing up this yet unnamed, super hero story.

Hurricane Hermine Recovery Update: Tallahassee Florida

Hurricane Hermine Recovery Update:  Tallahassee Florida

While only a minimal Category One, Hurricane Hermine rolled into town and devastated the area.  Its all about give and take, and as we celebrate a town known for its stunning canopied roads, the downside is… it doesn’t take much to bring down our power lines.

As of now (2 days AFTER the storm) much of the town is still powerless (we are of the few lucky ones) some county residents are being told potentially up to 2 weeks before power is restored, city residents are being told up to a week.

Stores are down, cell towers (Sprint-Verizon etc) are still wonky, with Sprint (as of 09/02) stating their emergency back-ups will only last LESS then another 24 hrs.  The Red Cross have stations set-up giving out hot food and the city has areas giving out water.

Yes, things are that bad-STILL!

As we were lucky, I was able to give out my emergency supplies and made water runs for a few without through-out today.

 Lifesavers- The NOAA radio my son has which features Solar and Hand-Crank operability AND the nifty flashlight and cell phone charging capability.

If you’ve never been in a non-power type emergency I’ll share my list of what I have and you WILL need/use!

Emergency List:

NOAA Radio

Hurricane Lamps (oil lamps- Oil and wicks in the event power is out for days) OR Nifty new LED camping lights.

Flashlight

Battery powered Fans (we’re in Florida, HELLO hot item to have)

D Batteries

Water (One jug per person in household-more if you can)

Boxed, canned or powdered milk. (for dry cereals etc)

Propane for your grill. NO GRILL? No Problem– Sternos will work in a pinch too! (those little candle/heater cans catering companies use under the chafing dishes!

Fill a baby pool etc, for water for flushing.

Freeze Milk Jugs filled with water and leave in freezer to help keep your food from spoiling.

HAND Can Opener.

INSTANT COFFEE!

Canned foods such as Stew, Chicken and Dumplings (one meal type dishes) that can make for easy (no water) clean-up and paired with bread or crackers for substance.

Dry goods: Crackers, breads etc. Crackers are good because they don’t spoil as fast as bread will.

Candles for where you don’t have your hurricane lamps ready. (Bathrooms, etc)

Ice and Dry ice. (Have an ice-maker? Empty out the ice-maker every so often into bags to keep on the ready.)

Paper Goods (remember, you may be without water) such as paper plates/towels, cups, utensils, etc.

TIP: Find a radio station (of no power) giving updates! Our local X-101.5/101.7 Stayed live taking LOCAL callers giving everyone updates on how their side of town was fairing throughout the storm. They were FANTASTIC and we knew what was happening around us.

There are many, many wonderful ideas out there, but most importantly, regardless of how bad or not bad you may think things may get, BE PREPARED for the WORST case scenario!

Hanging in and feeling blessed- Bobbi Romans
