October is my favorite time of year, crunchy leaves and crisp air.  And I am not sure why that is.  It brings on a change.  It isn’t one of growth but it is a “newness and rebirth” words not typically associated with Autumn but of Spring.  We are compelled to make special foods and walk around in decayed corn fields.  When the wind blows the fallen leaves in the road they dance across the path of my car, it stirs a mystifying feeling within me. Even as a child, I felt something unexplainable. What does October stir in you?

TEASER (Unedited)


The hot spray of the shower feels wonderful. It warms up my cold body and washes away the traces of him left behind. I step out onto the plushy rug beside the tub and dry myself slowly, stalling. This rug is one of the few luxuries I have been given by being Priest’s consort. I saw it when we went on a run for supplies at the local department store. It’s truly pretty with long shaggy fibers that tickle your toes. I asked to purchase it but Priest gave me a firm no. I never mentioned it again but a week later I went to the bathroom in Priest’s suite off the main house and there it was lying flush against the white tub with the tag still on it.

It’s Priest’s messed up way of apologizing. The whole previous week before I walked around with two bruised ribs and a gash under my eye from when he hit me. His ring cut my face. That was the most I have ever bled. It just kept coming. Red poured out from the tender layer of skin. That frightened me more than any other injury over the past years. I thought I was going to bleed to death. Priest sort of freaked out too. I’ve never seen him get like that. He actually looked remorseful and worried. In the end, I needed six stitches and have a tiny scar left behind. When you are close to my face, you can definitely see it. I was lucky that an Anointed member knew how to stitch up skin—a plain needle and a fine thread did the trick.

"The spring, summer, is quite a hectic time for people in their lives, but then it comes to autumn, and to winter, and you can't but help think back to the year that was, and then hopefully looking forward to the year that is approaching."

~Enya, Musician

Shutter Step (Collection of Short Stories)

"The blond swirls ruined as they stuck to my eyes and the cut across my cheek, cemented to my skin with blood." And I Exhale, by Stephanie Pitcher Fishman.

"Marguerite, only rags, some stained a deep umber like the crust of a pie long since forgotten in a hot oven, stared back." Shaded, Dede Nesbitt.

Shutter Step takes me back to a time when a short story from Roald Dahl or Shirley Jackson was just what I needed to transport me to another time and place. This collaboration of authors offers multitudes of fantastic imagery. In short stories, every single word needs to count to pull the reader in.
I highly recommend this anthology of shorts. The stories are refreshing and absorbing giving the reader just enough.

Deacon by Kristen Ashley

I was sucked in immediately!

Kristen Ashley has done it again! 
 The Unfinished Hero Series is my favorite of all of her series.  There is just something captivating about these dark heroes.  I loved the mystery that surrounded Deacon and his devotion to Cassie.  The time jumps caught me off guard, but they did not break me out of the story.  I recommend Deacon and the entire Unfinished Heroes series if you enjoy reading about a dark, mysterious, alpha-male.
