What Color Is Love?

Hello my far out chicks and happening cats. It’s been a week or so since my last blog and I’m sure all three people who read it have been like “where did Piper go?” Sorry, I’ve been a writing fool and had to go incognegro for a minute, but I’m back.
Today my question to all who dare to answer is: What color is love?
I ask this because I recently considered the issue of the genre Interracial Romance. I have another blog where I go way in depth about this issue but I decided to toss my two cents over here too. Most novels I read the hero and the heroine are the same race. To me, it’s no big deal, as long as I can identify with the characters in some way they could be purple for all I care.

Dead Inside Trailer

Hello all,

Everyone prepared for the weekend? I know I am. I get to write my butt off this weekend. Woo hoo! To start the weekend off on a positive note, I'm putting up the first trailer made by a for my novel Dead Inside. It's meant to be something fun. I'd love some opinions, so please let me know if you find it interesting.

The Pied Writer

It’s 4am. Your house is as quiet as a tomb and, you’re up before God and everyone with one goal in mind:

“I’m gonna write my ass off today.”

Still sporting the bed head look, your hair sticking up every which way, robe over your favorite ultra-comfy, gray lounge pants and your pink shirt you wouldn’t be caught dead in outside your house, which reads: “Writers do it better,” you’re set. Good to go!

You’re in your office, on your couch, at your kitchen table, in the bathroom, or where ever it is you do your writing. You’ve got your dictionary, thesaurus, pad of paper for those ideas that inevitably pop into your head when you’re busy doing something else and you’ve got your favorite mug filled with coffee or a nice hot tea—depending on what you drink. You’re feeling good about this and totally stoked. After weeks of saying you’d do this, you’ve finally done it. It’s A.I.C. (ass in chair) time. Time to get groovy!

Two hours later…

Lovers, Rubbers, Vampires and Friends

Hello all my favorite people,
I hope you all are well, at least, all who read this. To everyone else, boo on you, but I guess you wouldn’t know I said that so…
Moving on.
So, are you looking at the title like…what the hell? You can’t see it, but I’m shaking my head and grinning like a hooker who scored a millionaire. Can anyone say, Pretty Woman Part Deux?

Any hoot, back to the topic at hand. Let’s start with vampires and friends, better known as, what I like to call them, vampire-friends. They suck no actual blood but they do hold a Ph. D. in sucking you dry of time and energy. It’s always take, take, take and very 
little give where these friends are concerned.
As crass and upfront as I’m known to be, I’ll refrain from using names here. Those who think I’m referring to you specifically, shame on you I’d never out you in a blog—not! Those who know me and think this isn’t about you…? I guess we can’t all have perfect insight into ourselves. 

Express yourself don't repress yourself


So, this is a bit of a first for me. I'm not usually an everyday blogger. It's just not how I role. Usually I have so much ish to do I'm lucky to get in the one blog a week.

But, this week...? It's on like Donkey Kong. I must be butter…‘cause I’m on a roll. Now let's get it goin'.

Earlier today I got asked two very interesting questions. First I was asked, "Why do you write such dark stuff? Your romance is dark and sometimes so is your humor."

Next, someone said, after reading some of my work, "Wow! Reading your work is exactly like talking to you. Not really in charge of your filter are you?"

After letting out a string of expletives and unsavory things about both people’s mothers—just kidding, I only said something about one's mother. Lol! Wink, wink. I'll let you decide if I really did either of those.

The point of this blog is: these questions got me thinking about how I write, how others write, and what readers prefer.

Over the years, my writing has progressed and grown, but one thing has remained the same: I write what comes to my mind no matter how dark, dirty, raunchy, sad, goofy, taboo, or controversial. I've always enjoyed pushing the boundaries, testing the limits. It’s my firm belief that true gems of greatness come from people who dared to step outside the box.

I hate this part right here....

Testing, testing... Check one, check two, check, check... Is this thing on?

Okay, I'm done with the weirdest. As you'll soon find out, I'm in no short supply of weird things to say. When I discribed this blog as somewhere that I blog random ramblings at times, I wasn't joking. I'm famous for saying, and blogging, whatever comes to my mind and I rarely believe in censoring myself. Or at least I say that, the real problem is I have no filter. With me it's an in brain out mouth sort of deal with rarely a referee there to call time outs or fouls. Anyway, back to the point of the blog.
