COVER REVEAL!! Al Daltrey's A Condo With Two Views


Cover Reveal


A Condo with Two Views
By Al Daltrey
Available Tuesday January 6, 2015
Genre- BDSM Erotica





Men and women see the world differently, as do dominants and submissives. A Condo With Two Views is told from two perspectives: Jack’s and Chloe’s. Jack is a loving and protective... husband, but with a kinky penchant for sharing his willing wife. Chloe is smart and strikingly beautiful, and obeys every command from her husband, no matter how perverse. Each gives their view of the story: one where Chloe must submit to a grungy caretaker, a sexy lesbian couple, an evil developer, an older sadist, and the list goes on. But, what happens when she’s pushed too far? Is the deep love of a husband and wife more powerful than the bond of a dominant and submissive? What will win out, love or bdsm?

Please do NOT buy or read this if you are offended by graphic sexual descriptions including sexual violence. All characters are aged 25+, and it is recommended for an adult audience ONLY (aged 21+).

By day I work in Marketing, which involves a fair amount of writing. Therefore, I never really had an interest to write for pleasure. When you do it all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is more writing. All the while, as my career progressed, so did my involvement in the BDSM lifestyle.
 This interest in kinky sex started in my University years. Like most men, I loved meeting women, and especially the occasional one who didn't mind being tied up, or blindfolded, or spanked. All sex was great, but kinky sex was more exciting, more exhilarating, and more fulfilling.
Over the years I was lucky enough to meet my fair share of submissive women. And don't for a minute think these women were weak. Outside the bedroom they were confident, opinionated, gregarious and self-assured. However, inside the bedroom (so to speak) they wanted to feel the strong firm hand of a dominant man taking complete control.
Eventually I found the perfect partner, and am happily in a relationship.
One day, I flipped my laptop open, and to my surprise - I had an urge to write a BDSM story. Soon I had 20 pages, then 40, then 60. The novel that resulted was 'Testing the Submissive'.  The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the reviews excellent - all of which motivated me to continue writing. 'A Condo With Two Views' is my second full length novel, with other projects in the works. If you decide to give any of my writing a try, I hope you enjoy it!

COVER REVEAL!! G. G. Carver's Lucky Numbers




Lucy Eaton had a job she loved as a Teaching Assistant at a Special Needs School and a boyfriend who struggled with commitment issues. Life was good, not great, but good, until one day Lady Luck paid Lucy a visit and a life that most people could only dream of opened up to her. With the creases of every day life ironed out, she could sit back and live the dream.

But what if that dream doesn't turn out to be what you thought you wanted? 
Want and need are two very different things. The head wants, but the heart needs, and as generous and fortuitous as life can be, it can also be incredibly cruel. No one gets to live a creaseless life. That is something Lucy will soon discover.

Release Date 14th Feb 2015.

YUM! Breakfast Fun ~ Getting back on track

In the quest to regain my control and get back on track, it's been food prep and experimentation time. Since I am in the off season, I get to play a little more.
Pulled out the old Clean Eating magazines, some old M&F Hers and have been browsing.
Of course, there's always the vortex of pinterest.
I found this intriguing little number on pinterest.
Now, I wouldn't eat these everyday or anything, but on the weekend or switch things up, oh yeah!
I mean I love my protein pancakes I make with my eggs, oats and cinnamon, but variety is great.
This recipe is from
 
Banana Breakfast Cheesecakes
 
I mean, how could you not love that?
I did switch out the honey and used stevia instead.
I also was out of applesauce, so I used 2 T unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
I also added a little cinnamon to my ground oats.
All in all, they came out yummy.
An added bonus? My serving size was both!
Yeah, because I gets more food than the average Jane.
 
Banana Breakfast Cheesecakes
Yield: 2 cheesecakes
Serving Size: 1 cheesecake
Banana Breakfast Cheesecakes
These creamy cheesecakes are bursting with banana flavor! The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled too. Store the cheesecakes wrapped tightly in plastic wrap in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Do not reheat.

2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
6 oz fat-free cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp honey
¼ c mashed banana
½ tsp cornstarch
¼ tsp vanilla extract
 
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F, and lightly coat 2 jumbo-sized muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the oats and applesauce. Divide the mixture in half, and press into the bottoms of the prepared muffin cups. Bake at 300°F for 8 minutes. Cool in the pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and honey until smooth. Mix in the banana, cornstarch, and vanilla. Spread the filling on top of the cool crusts. Bake at 300°F for 19-22 minutes, or until the centers still jiggle slightly when the pan is gently shaken. Cool to room temperature in the pan before covering with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving.
Note: To make your own instant oats, add the same amount of old-fashioned oats to a food processor and pulse 5-8 times until coarse. Gluten-free oats may be used to create gluten-free cheesecakes.

So here I am

So, here you go.
Life has been, well, I don't know, what it is for everyone.
I guess, I still use food as a comfort.
Although, I find as I grow older, I handle certain surprise or shocking situations far differently than I did when I was younger.
However, let's face it, mac n cheese soothes the shaky soul.
So here is an accountability photo.
This is almost eight months past competition.

Things are changing in my life... as always.
I refuse to let food take control again, so here's to taking the reigns and getting better.
But, oh, there's some mac n cheese!

Tada!

A head's up!
I have created a separate blog purely for my author ramblings.
This page will be for my fun and fitness!
That's not to say that I won't occasionally post updates here.
Here's a shameless plug:

A story of intrigue, fitness, kink and menage.....


I will also say that I am so, so grateful for the book folks in my life.
All of those that I have become friends with and have beta-read for, proof-read for, pimped out....
so special and so integral in this process.
Thank you to all of them and the pros in the field who have graciously offered services and are guiding me through the process.
They have been making me teasers, making me media packages, planning cover reveals and online release parties.
I honestly could not have done any of this without them, 
especially with the crazy schedule that I have been keeping.

I guess I just wanted to say that this blog will not be converting to purely my literary smut ramblings.
I want to keep this one devoted to fitness, fun, food, and frivolity.

Did you know?! Just WoW!

This is just a hilarious story that I have to share.
For background, my real job is dealing with boundary and topographical surveying.
I provide the plat drawings from land surveyors.
In doing this, I have to know information about the property, structures on the property, topographical changes, utilities, just tons of borning info.

Out at a site in rural, mountainous Colorado:
The houses are lovely.
Of course, everything around is picturesque: mountains, trees, rocks, creeks, mini-waterfalls, cliffs.
Gorgeous.
In this area, I began to notice all of these little buildings spaced away from main residences. Some even had landscaped paths with little lights edging them.
Of course, curiosity got the better of me.
Besides, every structure must be labeled: Garage, Shed, Moveable Shed, Office, etc.

This = outhouse!
And it's totally within code in this county!

It had to do with the way the terrain is. There is no city or county water or septic.
All of these places rely on wells and septic tanks.
However, some areas have no room for a leech field of a normal septic receptacle.
Some of these properties do have a large tank which has to be pumped one to two times a month at $300 a pop?!
That's some expensive potty-ing and removal of gray water.
In large, many of these homes were built turn of the century and renovated for modern conveniences, except for toilets....
In fact, some of these outhouses have been around for the same period of time.


Wow!
Learn something new everyday.

Books & Bodies....

I have been so flipping exhausted that I have been loopy as a crack head.
Seriously, I feel sorry for those who have had conversations or "chatted" with me at the end of the day, lol.
I'm pretty sure that I sound legally insane.
So if you have had the pleasure of me the past week, well, sooooorrrrry!
On the book side, guess who finished draft two of her smut rag?
*This Girl*
It has gone to the beta-reading process.
The copies got sent out last night.
One beta-reader finished it, and I had wonderful emails this morning.
But, she's going to give me thoughts and suggestions too, which I absolutely love constructive criticism.
I really want this to be well received, even if it not a literary masterpiece.
However, the positive comments that I have received just overnight has me feeling better about the story not being a complete piece of fecal fiction!

Now, my thoughts are moving on to the cover.
I would love to stay away from stock photos.
I wish my friend were in town soon.
He comes to Denver often.
He is a dork and smart-ass, but I suppose that's why we get along, lol.
We have been friends for quite a while.
Though, I view him as a brother, I acknowledge that he has a phenomenal physique. I would love to ask him to bring another built friend with tattoos, so that I could have a photog friend do a shoot.
I would promise to cut off their heads so their work, friends and family wouldn't know they were on the cover of my porn on paper!
Maybe I convince some local competitors or athletes that I'm acquainted with to do it?
But, I will probably stick with stock photos.
There is always the dream, lol.

I have been continuing my training, though it is much lighter than it used to be, but still consistent. 
My food, however, has not been consistent at all.
I have slid down a slippery slope of comfort foods.
I am still on the hunt for super awesome recipes.
Of course, I would rather look at pictures and recipes than cook lately....

I however want to get my mojo back and represent the lifestyle well.
It hit me that people actually are influenced by me.
What's weirder is when my friends' kids who are in high school and beginning college tell me they think I'm kick-ass?!
Wow.
One whom I have know since he was a little guy too, told his dad to tell me he thinks that I should do CrossFit competitions.
I told him that I would probably die because I have not even tried CrossFit.
It's awesome that he thought that though, lol.
Maybe one day, I'll give it a go.

Which leads me to this:
I need sleep!
Until I can have some hours of uninterrupted sleep, I will fill up on coffee and hope to not become a slurring fool.
Here I am trying to have normal not goofy face.... 
Or maybe I was just too tired to even try to be my dork-ish self
