Grandpa's New Ride in The Hatbox


Grandpa's New Ride

Grandpa has an old ride, ancient, a relic really; when he decides to change it for a new one, his grandson Scott jumps at the chance to join him at the auction. A fun sci-fi romp by one of BigCloset and DopplerPress's favorite authors.

Kappa Delta Girls - By Daring Diane On Amazon and Kindle Unlimited

Danny, a college student with long hair and an androgynous look, wears his sister's sorority shirt to class one day. Living the life of a loner, Danny had few friends and was easily ignored by everyone in classes. However, several people, who were unaware of his existence, notice Danny in the sorority shirt and assume that Danny is not only a girl, but a member of the sorority.

What happens to our intrepid hero as the school year continues.

Getting the vapors

People do not understand that if do not like something that does not make it offensive. Just because you do not like what someone wrote or said that does not make the statement insulting, rude, derogatory, disrespectful, hurtful, wounding, or abusive. It is just them getting a case of the vapors to make other people agree with not liking the statement.

Apology to all

I wish to apologize to everyone regarding my double comments in the story comments section. I have done everything I can think of and even what others have thought of, and I still cannot stop these double comments from happening. What really makes hard, is once in awhile, I will think the issue is cleared up, because I only get one, then suddenly "here we go again" appears.
So I have come to the conclusion I either don't comment (which I really do not want to do) or just go with seeing the doubles show up.

I Am Rosemary's Granddaughter Chapter 14 "Queen of Sorrow"

I admit, I have been updating this chapter in piece meal style.
But is least for now...until the massive edits that may come down the pike occur.

So...I hope to have chapter 15 completed by next week.

And yes, Karen Anne will make an appearance once more

Book recommendation

I have just finished a book that readers here should love. It's humurous and sweet and if itwas posted here wuld have tons of kudos and comments.
Don't take my word for it. Read it yourself. It is available on KU.

To Be a Different Someone

It's been almost a year since my second book was released.
Fifteen years of working on it and fearing that it would not be accepted by anybody for a plethora of reasons.

It took me a while to want to change it over from its original screenplay format and into prose and even during that time I had a lot of help to try and finish it.

Psyren's redemption ch 6 Pt 1. Read for free now

So, it's that time of the week again, hurrah!

Chapter Six part one of Psyren's Redemption is up on my website.

I would really leave to see some comments or see people offer up feedback.

Started new book

This might be a bit premature to say anything about as it will take quite some time to complete, but I started working Reluctant Co-Ed tonight. For the longest time I resisted writing this story because 1) Chrissy isn't reluctant anymore and 2) a Tgirl in college has already been covered. But I felt the books really needed something between Prom Date and Bride.

I'm also going to have to take some of Reluctant Bride to use in the story. I'm going to have to completely re-write Reluctant Bride for publication any way.

What constitutes a 'Universe'?

I have an idea that came from to solo pieces (That are linked) that expands the scope of further stories that use the environment that is described in those stories.
Does this expansion of scope constitute what people mean by a Universe? These further stories are linked but essentially stand alone pieces.

So, what does constitute a Universe?

Urgent request

OK, this is a strange request, I know, but you see, your Ms. Haylee here is a tad superstitious. and one of my stories has a read count that is very ominous. While I won't state the number, directly, it is mentioned in the Bible in the book of Revelation. So please, if anyone here on the site could humor me, give the story Smoky Corners 2A: Kim's Conundrum (Complete) a quick peek. Even if you just click on it and right back off, that will be enough. Thanks!


Everybody please remember that today is the birthdays for Erin and wolfjess7. It would take too long to comment about how I feel about them and what they mean to the site. I can however say that hugs are definitely in order for them. Spankings are at your discretion! *LOL*


Tappity Tappity Tappity: Your Keyboard And You


Word documents.




All of these things, when used on a modern PC, rely heavily on a keyboard. I use mine constantly, and though I'm not what I would normally call a particularly picky user... I'm starting to have some issues.

I lied!

OK maybe Lie is a bit strong, I said that part 5 would be the last part of, "For Better or Worse" and it was plotted out to be the last part until my Muse grabbed the story and ran with it, adding more to the story than was originally planned. And since I thought the additions were worth keeping, we will have another section or two of the story before it's complete.

So my apologies for extending the story past what I had said. :)


Efindumb posted a well read posting about stories to reread a few days ago. This got me remembering that about a year ago I occasionally saw a Classics series that someone posted from the archive. I loved them, and read them all. Yet I haven't seen this lately. Are these still done?


I Can’t do This All on My Own…… I’m no Superman

I am wondering if when someone notices a minor character name is from somewhere else if it takes you away from suspending disbelief in the story or just makes the story less enjoyable. I just put out the 4 part of Becoming Sarah and I used two names from Scrubs in it.

I did this for I have been rewatching the series. It brings back fond memories of me stopping over my parents to spend an evening with my mom, watching sitcoms. My dad worked evening shifts so I made it a point to spend at least one weekday evening with her.

Psyren's redemption ch 5. Read for free now

Chapter five of Psyren's Redemption is up on my website.

If you like what you see please either use the subscription box on my website or follow me on any of the below social media sites or even join in on the forum and start up some nice conversations.

I'm on the Outside

The following is from chapter 7 of "I'm On the Outside", a side story of "To Be a Different Someone"--essentially, the storyline fom Matthew Tracker's perspective that explains the events that Jennifer does not know about.

The musical influence if from the band Staind.

IV. Suffer

“Tyler, what are you doing?”
“I just need to hold onto someone.”
“Okay, man, sure, but I can’t breathe, so ease up a bit."

delays, delays, delays

As Marvin the Martian would say, "Delays, delays"

In my case, this refers to a new chapter in the MYTH series. A bad combination of "trying to do real life stuff while in pain", and "Muse on vacation" has meant I am no closer to finishing chapter 3 than i have been for a bit.

My apologies. At least some of the other writers who have expressed interest are coming up with interesting ideas ...

Changing titles

I'm off to see about changing the titles of my chapters. I find that just numbers 1 to 30 (soon) are quite boring. I want to actually have chapter titles. It is sort of to follow the style of some of my heroes (Dickens and Tolkien) but more importantly it gives me a reference to past chapters when I have to look back to check on a fact months later. Hopefully it will mean not having to scan through many chapters to find what I seek.

Fanfic Story Idea

Just curious if anyone else on site is a video game player like myself. I particularly loved Final Fantasy VII, and was thinking about doing a fanfic of it, based on Cloud Strife's forays into cross-dressing. Would anyone be interested in reading it if I developed a story arc?

Haylee V

Edit (02-AUG-17):

After reading all the comments, and the rather heated debate regarding backstory (or lack thereof), I have come up with the following opening. Please do me a favor by IM'ing me your feelings about it. Thanks!
