The continuing adventures of Doug Gordon, Queen of Ka'an. (Ka'an in Mayan means Heaven.) Ka'an is actually an alien world populated by women... and a man-eating plant.

The Last of the Fey

by Denise Anesidora Trask

Dennis is a stunt man, er... boy, er... young adult. Being of slight build, although muscular, he didn’t get into sports when in middle and high school. No, he was far too deeply involved in the motion picture business by then. It all began when he was less than a year old and snowballed from there.

51IPb4yXL5L.jpg

Geoff Greenfelder's discovery should have changed his life by rocketing him up the ladder of academia . Instead, it changed his life in ways he never could have imagined. After partaking in a sacred ceremony by the Amazonian tribe he discovered, everything in his life changes, including his very own body. What should have been an occasion for joy becomes a trauma Geoff must work through. His only hope for returning his life back to normal is finding the answers that lie in unraveling the mysteries of the tribe before he can return to it.

some good news about my daughter

Blog About: 

Author: 

I got some good news about my daughter. I found out that she has been accepted to go to a continuing education program specially set up for handicapped people post grade 12.

They will focus on combining academics with life skills, and it will go for two years.

I'm very proud of her.

Searching for a story

The story I am searching for was probably not on this site. A number of years ago I was reading a story I think was about a married man and his wife who were in grave financial trouble. A mysterious man offers to help, but only on the condition that the man agrees to undergo a transformation, based on how much help he gets. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!!

Family Found Part 3

This is set in the year 2037, by coincidence since "Heading East: Mark" all stories have actually been set in the near future. No royals were harmed in the making of this story. Sorry for another TG character, but there simply isn't enough FtM characters depicted in stories. And again, special thanks go to Sammi for helping plot and guide the story's creation.

A funny thing

Blog About: 

Author: 

I had a funny thing happen at church today. It seems that a tomboy at church thinks that I am the perfect person to give her lessons on how to be a lady. She came up to me and said " I am trying to become more lady like and you are the most feminine lady as per my mom." Now I am very happy to have gotten the compliment, but I also think it's funny that I am 11 years post op, yes feminine facial surgery and also a bit of work done as well. That being said HER mom says she could learn to be more lady like from ME.

"Writers must recognize the stop signs in their… " - tips on writing

"Writers must recognize the stop signs in their…"

I recently read a blog by a writer on our site that was looking for help with their story... which caused me to take note of this in today's paper.

I found this article on the importance of knowing WHEN to end your story; the importance of knowing when to say 'when'. The first half of this article is insightful. Towards the end of this article famous authors opening words are compared to their ending words; both are equally important.

Dancing to a New Beat 11

CHAPTER 11
We spent two weeks on the initial aspects of Meadowcroft, and while we were not precisely surprised at what came out from under a Bradford stone the team’s reaction was a revelation.

Reality had descended on us in a big way after the whirlwind of our original tasking, for the police drama depiction of dedicated sleuthing is utter rubbish. We don’t spend months on one case, patiently sifting evidence before moving to a conclusion, but rather take on a job, a case. Then another. And another.

This Sucks (enemyoffun needs to relocate with help! ~seph)

So I wrote a blog a bit ago about a writing delay because of Life in general. Things have NOT been easy around here. My books aren't selling anymore and my brother is breathing down my neck. I got into a fight with him---verbal, not physical---last night. Every weekend now he takes off to go to his girlfriend's, leaving me here to look after the hundreds of animals he owns. That's not an exaggeration either. I'm already fed up with it because he took a job that keeps him out of the house for 12 hours a day, four days a week.

Just a quick note or two.

Well my best laid plans have fallen by the way side as my internet access so far this trip has been sketchy at best and non existent most of the time.

Anyhow, we've had a great trip so far, a mostly mill pond North Sea crossing and wall to wall blue skies and sunshine ever since. Gab has. Been enjoying herself with visits to Hameln of rat fame and the windmill museum up at Luneberg Heide. Maybe the other windmill visits were a bit more 'if we must' but we've some great stuff planned for the way back.

NYT Best Seller List or a Crony List?

Author: 

Many years ago, yes we were publishers then, the NYT listed a book title as a NYT Best Seller. It hadn't even been written yet. I believe everyone in the publishing business knew the NYT was a Wine and Dine list. Those publishers who could wine and dine the owner, editors, and writers of the NYT were assured of selling hundreds of thousands more books if they made the list. It was a very exclusive club bought and paid for with lots of free food, women, lavish trips, and exotic holidays.

The Trials and Tribulations of a Girl?

Chapter 69
A letter from England. Back at the O’Brians.

Larry had a nasty run-in with his future father-in-law and had received a black eye. The crew had gotten together to not only comfort Larry but to try to figure why it happened and what to do about it. Amy had concluded that Kelly’s dad might be having a nervous breakdown.

The Chief Nastas Todachine Memorial Scholarship was finally a go.

Today, Saturday, we had some fun when all the bride maids in Kelly’s wedding came to town for dress fittings. And Tammy went along. Of course, only Amy, Kelly, and Maria knew that Tammy wasn’t a real girl. It appeared that Kelly and Maria were a little nervous undressing in front of Tammy. But a talk afterward seems to have gotten them to understand who Tammy is. Maybe.

And now the crew was coming over for frybread tacos. And lessons on how to make frybread. So after Amy and I were back home, Tammy became Kai. A blond Kai. Well, we need a Southwestern girl to make a Southwestern meal. Don’t we?

Family Found Part 2

Paige called 999 to get an ambulance as well as the police to respond then stopped Anil before he ran off. Anil looked up at Paige and knew that he wasn't going anywhere, but seeing Elise caused him to try to back away in fear before Paige could ask him anything. Elise was told to go back to the car and stay there, she would handle Anil as Elise was just scaring him and making things worse for the boy.

The seduction: part 13

after Lauren.jpg


Chapter thirty seven: new beginnings

The next morning they decided to stay for another day. They had some power bars for breakfast and made some coffee. Then they walked along the water line again hand in hand, leisurely and happy about the freedom, the quiet and the sunshine, as the weather was playing along nicely. As she was very happy Stephanie was singing her joy like before on the Pembrokeshire coast. When they had reached their tent again it was close to noon and they decided to take a swim. The water was fresh and lovely in the sunshine. They swam out a bit until Maureen warned Stephanie about a current, that would start when the tide turned, and they returned to the beach to dry themselves in the sunshine. Once their skin was dry they spread suntan lotion over each other and enjoyed the proximity of their respective lover.

Family Found Part 1

This is the first "Next Generation" story. It is roughly October of 2038, 16 years after the last story ended. There will be some references to the past but much of this will be entirely new ground even if the storyline is a run of the mill Winnisimmet Tales story. Some are new characters created just for this story, while others are returning characters who did't get much time before.

A big special thank you must go out to my co-plotter, muse wrangler, and all around sounding board, Sammi.

Burning out

Author: 

The next Winnisimmet Tales series coming in a few hours. It is taking a lot out of me and has tapped me out for ideas. If not for the help of Sammi, this series would not exist. Even so, I had to rely on her for much of the plot and ideas. I wanted to collaborate, but this is beyond collaboration- this is ghost writing.

I hate that I can't do this on my own anymore. I have become what I hate most. I am a burnout.
