About Me

My photo
@ home, behind my computer, Belgium
I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)

The ball is rolling now.

I did it! The book is now available for sale.

You can visit http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/114165 and choose which type of download suits you best.

I'm not sure which way this will go and I have low expectations *chuckles* if I make one or two sales I'll be happy.

I'll go try and figure out a few more spots where i can promote the short story.

Update.

Though a small update on how things are at the moment was in order.

For starters, I haven't fallen of the edge of the world. I did fall some weeks ago aka me very cranky with a hurt knee and transformed into a whiny 3 year old. The knee is better now, those following me on twitter are in the loop (thank you guys and gals for putting up!)

This resulted in me being on the couch for the first part, less time to write and the few times I did try I wasn't sure I was hitting the right feel with the chapter, so I stalled and stalled. I'm still only halfway through but I kind of feel satisfied with it so far now. That is good, right?

I'm building up big time for Adam's revenge, don't think there will be a fight already. I want that part to be super good as well.

I'm going to try and finish chapter 9 this week and get it to you guys and gals ASAP. I'll keep on working on the next but don't expect any new posts until we go into the new year. Hopefully that will take away some pressure for me and maybe I even manage to finish a bit more again, *crosses fingers*.

X-Mass comes early enjoy!!
I'll even think of the male readers : 

Friday, November 11, 2011

Adam 08

LIve on Lit and available on the blog at the usual places.
I can't say when 9 is going to be ready, weekend is around the corner and we're going out each day, meaning zero time to actually write.

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Adam 08

Think seeing the title and 08 is enough explanation to know I've just submitted the last chapter to Lit. 72h waiting time now.
I'm working on the next chapter, but now I'll write, get it edited and submit as I go along. so can't submit one a week anymore.

Friday, October 28, 2011

Adam 07 live

And we're live once more. I really hope you enjoy the read.
As I said in the disclaimer from now on I'll have to post as I go along. Chapter 08 is with the editor right now and I'm trying to work hard on 09. there is this thing called real life that keeps getting in the way of my writing time and yay I've caught another throat infection, how things can go wrong in matter of hours.

Maybe I'll have to ask one of my hunks to take care of me now and cuddle me *grins*.

You can find the appropriate reading links in the pages above.

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Adam 07

The chapter has finally found its way to Lit, I have just submitted it so now it's the 72h waiting game once more.
08 is currently with Miko to work her magic on, I'm working on 09 but due to real life and demanding kids and me wanting this to be perfect in every way it's taking longer then I thought.
Sadly this also means I have to forsake my promise of trying to keep up with a chapter a week :-(

Monday, October 17, 2011

Adam 07

Not submitting the whole chapter yet, I do want to give Miko a bit more time to make sure she is happy with the edits as well. So I'm sticking with was said in previous disclaimer in chapter 06: will be submitting chapter 07 next Sunday.

But I do want to be nice, or a tease, and have submitted a little teaser already.

Enjoy !

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Adam 06

We're live early!! What do you say about that?

So chapter 06 is uploaded to the blog too now.

Enjoy the read.

Sunday, October 9, 2011

Adam 06

It's Sunday again. I've just submitted the sixth chapter to Lit and have updated with a bit of a longer teaser than normally.

As you will read in the small disclaimer the next chapter will be submitted in two weeks time. One because right now 7 is still with the editor and secondly, she's having a bit more work the usual because of the Halloween competition.

With this extra week you all have a bit more time catching up on all these extra submissions and won't the SIW chapters get lost too much ;-)

Think by now you know where you can find the teasers, enjoy!

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Adam 05

The fifth chapter is now live on Lit and is available on the blog now too.

I'm happy to announce that the first chapter for Adam has been submitted on Lit. Let the 72 h wait begin.
Below you'll find a short teaser of this first chapter :


This part of SIW is real special to me, not just because of the writing but also because of the people working on it and with it. I love you all!

Lisa Beth Darling

If you want another good book, or rather books, to read, I highly recommend reading LB Darling's "Heart of War" and the soon available "Child of War".

This one lies close to the heart, not just because I LOVED to read HoW (three or four times now, honestly!) and had the privilege to proofread the follow up. But also due to the fact Lisa is just a fun and cheerful person. With her unique way of looking at the crazy world it really is a joy to read her daily blog

One more than one occasion I had to laugh so hard with what she shared with us, other times when shes being brutally honest I felt the need to just pull her into a hug.

All these things made it possible for her to create such wonderful story, the mythology that is woven through it ....

"Child of War" is finished and to give her a little helping hand I'm sharing with you where you can order your first copy of the book : 



I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Smallish update

Vacation is in town. Not much going on in the writing department. The dear husband is dragging us all over the place and if we're home he's the champ in the nagging department. I'm just trying my best to stay on top of my reading and helping out Lisa with proofing her second Ares book.

So no panic is needed if you don't see anything new just yet. Though writing is down to zero atm I do hope to get back into swing pretty soon, I have 4 chapters with the editor and with some luck I'll start posting them in September. Just an estimate, if i'm not happy with the progress I might hold on to them a little longer. I really would love to be able to post a bit more regularly, but I need a lot of finished chapters to do this.

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

SIW 12/13

I have been slacking with updating them on the blog. I've just corrected that and have uploaded both chapters now.

Once again i'd like to remind you i'll be taking a short break from submitting, however I'm not taking a break from writing. I just want some chapters completely finished so I can try and submit more regularly. If that means I will need the story almost completely finished, so be it, but the plus side is I am aiming to be able to post a chapter a week.


Friday, July 8, 2011

SIW Chris Whelan ch 13 Teaser.

Just submitted the last chapter on Lit, let the waiting game begin.
To tie you over I'm posting the craved teasers now.

Enjoy them during the waiting.


Wednesday, June 29, 2011

SIW Chris Whelan ch 12 Teaser.

I just submitted the full chapter to Lit. So to help you make the wait less longer I got another small teaser. This chapter is purely Chris and Mia, exploring more of their bond. So it's just the one teaser this time instead of two smaller ones.

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Chris Whelan Chapter 11 (19 on LIT)

For those that prefer to read SIW on the blog, I've just added the complete chapter.

After this one there are two more chapter to complete Chris' story. Already started on Adam.


Sunday, June 19, 2011

New SIW

You'll be glad to know the new SIW has been submitted to Lit. To celebrate we finally got to this stage I'll be adding two small teasers for you all to enjoy as you wait for the full chapter to go live. you'll get a nice treat then since my other romance story GLLG is still pending too.


Saturday, June 18, 2011

Game Lost, Love Gained.

Here we are. For those following the blog you can already have a read. Those on Lit will have to wait 72h before it goes live!

Some time ago i was without my baby and still having the urge to write something I started writing this. It's a one off, I made it end, I didn't want to leave a loophole so you could nag for more hahaha. I still have so much more to write I'll be busy for years to come LOL.

Just you'll know the next chapter of SIW is with the editor, the one after that is with Jaz right now and the next, and last one, is being written as we speak.

Now before I go on a rant I'll let you continue to read the story :

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Chris Whelan and more.

Just letting you'll know the next chapter is still with the editor, the next one if 95% finished and is with Jaz right now. then there is probably one more following to wrap up Chris' story.

Only thing I'm still pondering about is whether to include the rest of the events in the MacLachlan pack. As in :

*give them a short epilogue, so you all know how things turned out.
or
*give them a separate stand alone story. in this case you will have to wait a little bit longer to read. this option would be the tale of Richard over a longer period of time (knowing myself this will turn into a few chapters LOL)


if I go with giving him/them a separate tale I will get round to it, but I want to finish the rest of SIW first. I've already started the story of Adam.

So if you want you can state your preference in the comments and i'll take them into consideration.

Semi computer less but with a bonus.

Those that follow me on Twitter will probably already be tired of my whining that my computer is at comp ICU. it died on me in the middle of reinstalling it from scratch!.
Thankfully I had everything backed up already, so nothing is lost.
But good things come out of it too. I was so bored and out of my mind with not being able to work on SIW that I've started a new story. It will be a one off erotic coupling. No sequels or anything and I won't cave afterwards if you start asking for more of this.

this is going to be Sam (Yes he's a hockey player)


































and this is his "partner in crime" Barb

















Don't they make a cute couple?

SIW submission

The latest chapter has been submitted to Lit. Let the dreaded 72h wait start.
The next chapter is currently with Jaz for proofing, so more to come soon.

Friday, May 20, 2011

Editor phase.

Yup you read correctly, the next SIW chapter has been shipped to the editor. I'm steadily working on the next one. Also doing some preliminary work on the next SIW sage, for Adam.
It is going to take a while before that will be going live. I am going to try and do my best to have a few chapters completely ready, if not the whole story, so I can give you more regular updates. I'm not promising anything, just that I am trying. I'll be working on Adam's story, but I'll also will be finishing "A New World Awaits". if that story is complete that will go onto Lit in one, meaning you will get a short chapter each day.

Mother-in-law.

Normally i don't post that much about personal stuff, not that I don't want to share, but I try to keep the blog somewhat separate from family life. Not that it is so special, I take care of two kids, two cats (one thinks he's a dog, really, I'm not joking) one huge dog and the dear husband. I clean, I cook, I'm taxi-mom, nothing special, things any mom would do. We all have our ups and downs in RL, for me writing is escaping that. I'm ever so thankful for the numerous new friends (readers and writers alike!) I've made along the road.

But sometimes there are things that happen beyond our control that shake up ones life. Yesterday proved to be such a day. My job is to act as normal as I can (think I trained that condition to perfection) and be strong and rational for everyone around me. Sadly this treat, sometimes makes me look like a stone cold bitch because I can switch of the " I care" button in my head when it's needed and just go on with things.

Sigh, that's all I can do. most wouldn't have said so, but yesterday is a day I rather didn't see happening.
Cutting to the chase, my mom-in-law was suspected to have had a brain stroke. She wasn't acting normal at all. So yesterday my two sisters-in-law, took matters into their own hands, called up her GP and made sure he would visit in the afternoon.
Our suspicions were proven right, she must have had a minor stroke some days ago. now the worst part of it all is her GP wants her to go to the hospital for observation for at least 24h. She's refusing to do so because of an inhumane fear of hospitals(you can safely add doctors and nurses to that list, it's all the same in her mind).
We're not going to force her to go because we know it will only affect her in a bad way. she's physically not in the best of shapes, high blood pressure, holding up water and a few more things... a long list.

So now we're left with the conclusion that she could either just die in her sleep tomorrow or can go on for weeks/months/years with out anything happening.

Sighs again. I've given up almost all of my side of the family, just my mom, grandmother and brother left. I really don't want to think about giving up more people in the foreseeable future.
I wish I could knock some common sense into that woman that I hold so dear and is normally such a fierce lioness for all her grandchildren. It pains me being told she's having a droopy face, slurred speech, is forgetting things, sleeps all the time, smiles all the time and when asked why she smiles, she doesn't know.

Husband spoke to her last night on the phone and it seems like she's just hanging in there and letting everything happen. We have made peace with the fact we don't expect her to get really old, simply because of her fear for hospitals and blatantly rude behavior to her GP and any person related to anything medicinal.

But it still hurts that she can't at least try and pull her self together, even not for our sake but for her 6 grandchildren.

There my rant is over, I just needed to get this of my chest. Sucking it up now and back into strong normal mommy mode.

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

A little teaser or two.

The chapter is finished and has the Jaz stamp of approval. It still has to undergo the scrutiny of the guild and then it will be send to the editor for the final clean up session. But since i'm in such a good mood I'll post two little experts of it. T you're gonna like the second one *winks* so inspirational you are.

Please ignore typo's and or grammar mistakes.

enjoy the teasing :

Something fun.

I won't be doing much the coming days. The kids have their annual school party/show with complementary BBQ today and I have a school viewing tomorrow with my eldest. Doing so preparation for when he goes to high school the year after that. Having a kid with ADD (same form as ADHD for those that are familiar with the term) AND a severe form of dyslexia, it's the best choice to go check those out in advance. The combination of his two conditions means he gets a normal education, but he's getting support for some years now. It also means we have to be really sure which way he wants to take his later studies. So with all that on my mind, we decided to visit a few schools who are having open classes the coming months. (I really hope he finds something he likes in the school well be visiting tomorrow)

Now with that all said, I know getting my head around writing these few days isn't going to happen, also because I'm waiting on the Jaz stamp of approval before the guild can have a look and me shipping it of for final editing.

A while ago we had this post on the guild: How do we think our characters look like? Or who are they based on?

I thought it would be fun to see who YOU think they look like. So I say, get googling. and posting up some links and add who you think that represent to you. You can add characters from other writers, but do add then who that is and from which story the character comes from. I'll be adding my own on Sunday.

Have fun!!!

SIW Chris Whelan Ch 09

Here we are with the full chapter for those preferring to read on the blog, enjoy.

If you think something is missing or not right or I forgot, please do ask and/or tell. I hate leaving holes behind unless intentional.

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

SIW

The next chapter is now submitted to Lit, stay tuned for the next 72h wait to read it completely. (though check here, maybe you get it sooner ;-) )

Monday, April 25, 2011

Little teaser of the new chapter.

Title explains enough, enjoy :

Next chapter.

the next SIW chapter has been shipped of to the editor, now it's waiting for that final stamp of approval before we can submit it to Lit.
working hard on the next one.

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

and the next

The next chapter is 90% finished. Jaz is kindly proofreading it at the moment, once it gets her stamp of approval I'll forward it to my editor for that final clean up before it goes live.

I don't want to jinx myself, but I'm on a roll. excited to get this story finished and to start on the next one. However the next one will have to wait a little bit. I'm first going to finish "A New World Awaits". That doesn't mean I won't be working on the next SIW story, but it's going to have a nice twist, only downside being I'll need a bit more time before a chapter is finalized. I am sure you all will like/love the outcome.

Now I'm going back to constantly checking my in box!!

Thursday, April 14, 2011

SIW update

The title says it all, updated the chapter list. It's already live on Lit, but if you prefer to read here, you can now.

enjoy.

Sunday, April 10, 2011

A little teaser from the next chapter.

Yay for me and all of you. i'm just done with the final edit of the latest chapter and I'm on my way to submit it to Lit. In the meantime I'm going to let you enjoy just a little bit of it.

Thursday, March 24, 2011

The new SIW!

Here we are with the full chapter. The next is already with Jaz , hoping to get it back in the next few days. Sadly for a while i won't get a final edit on these because my editor is going through a rough patch. understandably he's taking a temporary break from editing. he'll pick it back up when the time is right. if the edits are major i'll resubmit it on Lit, if minor i'll let it be as it is.

enjoy the read

New chapter for "A New World Awaits"

I think the title says it all. This is more character forming instead of moving the story forward. That will come soon. Enjoy!


Thursday, March 17, 2011

TEASER! NEW SIW.

Yes, it seems to be a new fashion, so who am I to stay behind, right? *grins*


Here a little expert, or two, from the last complete chapter which is currently at the editor, so please forgive me should there be/feel anything wrong/off kilter.


First is one to keep you happy ;-) second shows how strong Mia is.


Enjoy  

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Update time.

I have my proof back, but it needs a little bit of tweaking, but I'm sure after this draft it will get the Jaz stamp of approval.

I have already started the next chapter because it's just brewing in my head and just have to get it out.
Already have the third brother knocking at my door demanding where his story is LOL hunky as they are, they sure are demanding those Whelan "boys" *shakes head* but he will have to wait, there is Adam to sort out first.

I contemplated a long time in which order I would write them. Tell the tale of the three brothers then add the rest to it, or keep the stories chronological, at least as best as I can. they tend to intertwine on a few occasions, linking them all together. With that in mind I decided to stick to chronological, that means Adam is up next.

As you know from past chapter, Adam's start will be a rocky one. The story itself will be special too, special in the sense I'll be having a few "guest authors" working on the story as well. Yes I am a tease, No I'm not telling who, yet ;-)

Sunday, March 6, 2011

SIW update

I started the new chapter this week and I have to admit it's coming along nicely. That's something we'll all like I'm sure of that.
But Chris really has a one track mind, how typically male of him!!

Rest assured, they had "their moment" and are now moving forward.

I'm going to try not to be optimistic about the muse's return home, you never know how fickle they are!

Anyways, now you know i haven't forgotten you'll.

I'll be posting the nex chapter to ANWA soon, just some proofing, just a few days more.

Thursday, February 24, 2011

A New World Awaits

update. Chapter is finished, I hope, and is currently waiting in Jazz' mailbox to get her stamp of approval. Then I can send it off for final editing.

YAY me, then I can go back to Mia and Chris. I'm pretty sure they're done hibernating now and want some fresh air and stretch their limbs!!

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Hiatus or something ...

*bonks head against the table* against the keyboard would leave to many dents behind!

I had so hoped that after these holidays I would have loads of time to write and make good progress. I started off good, posted the last SIW chapter and then the mind went blank, really blank. The story, or rather chapters, I wanted and still want to write are there. But I'm missing the flow. I started a few time to only find myself simply deleting it, time after time.

If I see potential in a scene I'll save it, if not "delete" is the way to go.

As for Mia and Chris, they're still resting after their hot session. No matter if some felt it was a filler chapter, what matters to me is the joy (oh how many breaks I didn't need myself to cool off!) I had writing. I wanted them to have a moment just for the two of without having to deal with revelations, family and what not. There is enough going on for them in such a short period of time, that they deserved their moment.

Only plus I did have is that I manages to sort out some back ground on a few things to help the main story and characters in "A New World". That's good isn't it? No no, I won't share those, you'll get to read about them eventually in the story ;-) With some luck their latest chapter will be done this week, so cross anything you can cross and hope for the best!

Think I'll end my ramblings for now. I hope you're reassured somewhat that I haven't forgotten about you all. I'm trying my best to get any kind of writing done!

Greetings

Goodbye Erotica Republica

Notice of Closure

We have made the difficult decision to shut Erotica Republic down. Upkeep of the site was continuing to take more and more time and effort, but due to other obligations and ventures we felt we could not give it the proper attention it deserves.

To our authors, we wish to extend our heartfelt thanks for contributing to the site and making it what it was. It would be nothing without you. Best of luck in all your future endeavors.

To our members and visitors, thank you for visiting. We hope you enjoyed the site while you had the chance. 

It's been a fun couple of years and we will remember Erotica Republic fondly.

The ER Team.


This makes me a sad puppy.

Get ready to ruuumble... or is that pushing it? *winks* New SIW

Here we are sweet darlings. The awaited update for Chris and Mia.
Right now I'm working on a new chapter for "A New World Awaits", once that is finished I'll be back with my wonderful Whelans.
Hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing this chapter.

SIW Chris Whelan 05

I've gotten the final edit back. I said i would resubmit it to Lit, but the errors are so minor i'm going to leave it as it is on Lit. I have added the changes to the chapter here on the blog. I'm now patiently waiting to get ch 06 back from Asylum, then i can post that one up :-) be prepared to have your spouse nearby!

Working on a new chapter for "a new world awaits"

Next SIW chapter

The next SIW chapter is finished, it has been proofread by our dear miss JazCullen and is now with my editor for pruning out the last few mistake and/or errors.

I'll be working on another NWA chapter now.

I hope with all the festive days behind me and I spend some more time writing again. I hope! I want too, but family, kids and pets do take up their time as does my other addiction of on line gaming ;-)

I'll try to keep this updated a bit more again too, I felt I neglected all of you more then I should. But you can follow me daily on twitter if you like :
