What's happened to Fictionwise?

What has happened to Fictionwise?  First they stop offering their bonus points (micropay rebates), which I can understand.  You don't make money by giving away books for free.  But why does it no longer have the "liquidity" it used to have?  At any time you could go onto the site and search for your book, and see where it was currently ranking in sales, not to mention reviews.  Now you have to wait every Monday to see where it is.

The rebates I can see.  The liquid function makes no sense to me.

Remember that series I told you about a few weeks ago?

The one that came to me after a couple of months of not being able to write anything?  I got book #1 written, and the other 4 books somewhat planned out.  Well, during the interim while waiting for word back as to whether or not the book/series is contracted or rejected, I searched for some possible pictures so that I could give the cover artist an idea of what I wanted (yeah, I'm hoping for a contract.  :)

Anyway, I ended up making the cover.  And not just for book #1, but for the whole dadgum series!

I just hope all that time and effort isn't wasted.

Will keep you posted.

I don't know what's worse.

Waiting for that rejection for a book I submitted nearly 2 months ago (waiting time is 4-8 weeks).  Or waiting for that contract for a book I submitted nearly 2 months ago.

I'm baaaaack!

Sorry I've been gone.  My computer went belly up, and as soon as I dished out the $$ for a new one, the telephone company decided to install new equipment.  When it rains, it pours, as they say.  But hopefully that's in the past.

Did 'ja miss me?

Go follow Freaky Facts NOW!

If you don't follow FREAKY FACTS on Twitter or Facebook, go do so NOW. Here's some of the very strange but very interesting tidbits they throw your way:

The freaky part of being immobilized and tied down, makes your sexual pleasure way more intense.

Humans and dolphins are the only mammals that have sex for pleasure.

Sex is the safest tranquilizer in the world. It is 10 times more effective than valium!

The Ramses brand condom is named after the great pharaoh Ramses II who fathered over 60 children.

Men often fantasize about a sexual encounter with 2 or more women at the same time. Only 9% will succeed.

"3 in every 5" women own or will purchase a Vibrator/Sex Toy in their lifetime.

Only 25% of women will experience a nerve shaking orgasm. Very few men are capable of giving a woman one.

The left testicle usually hangs lower than the right for right-handed men. The opposite is true for lefties.

More STD's are transferred through oral sex than sexual intercourse.

A woman's desire for sex may change with time, but overall they are just as sexual as men.

85% of all men lie about their Penis size. But, why lie...she's going to see how small it is eventually.

Studies have found that the greater the orgasm, means the deeper the sleep. Make sure you get YOURS!

Women are most likely to want rough hardcore sex while they're ovulating.

The female genitalia has four Erogenous Zones: The clitoris, the U spot, the G spot and the A spot.

Sexual Orgasms boost infection fighting cells in your body up to 20%, which helps keep you in good shape.

More sexy body jewelry

All this research into body jewelry has left me drooling.  I've seen these waist chains in abundance, and they can be awesome.  Hell, wear one of these, and the rest of your wardrobe could be WalMart clearance, and no one would notice!

Sexy body jewelry

Yesterday I mentioned body piercings, and it got me to thinking about body jewelry in general.  I've never seen this kind of "body necklace", but it's very beautiful.  Does it come with pearls as well as diamonds?

Hey, hunny!  Lookie what you can get me for my birthday!

What else do you have pierced?

I was at the mall last weekend, and I passed by one of those jewelry kiosks that had a huge display of pierced geegaws for bellybuttons and noses and whatnot.

My ears are pierced, but nothing else.  But I've noticed that in some erotic books I've read, the hero or heroine may have their navels, lips, tongues, eyebrows, and sometimes their genitals are wearing studs.

Is this a "fad" thing? Or are piercings becoming more prevalent in society and fiction?

Female condoms - Put a ring on it!

Saw this over on CNN.  It's the female condom, and you can get more information plus watch a video demonstrating how it's inserted here.

What I'm not quite sure about is, let's say you're getting ready to go out bar hopping with the girls, and hoping to get lucky later in the evening.  How comfortable would this thing be already inserted?  Because it's obvious from the video that it takes at least a good 30 seconds to a minute to get it properly inserted, and by that time the mood might be gone.  And that's not even considering the cost.

It's Mayhem Monday!


For those of you (like me) who were taught by our mothers that "the way to man's heart is through his stomach", here's a couple of cookbooks you can get to test that "theory".

I wanna!

I want my own miniature giraffe!
