The BlurbThe fate of the Cosmos rests in the hands of an unlikely team of unusual friends. Will an exiled member of an ancient extraterrestrial race, a human ghost, and two ghouls be able to outfox an ancient evil and beat Nyarlathotep at his game before time runs out? This buddy story is the first in a series of New Cthulhu Mythos cliffhangers.
The NotesLast time Robin put Ketil in his place.
The Snippet

“I am unsure why you would say this, Big John,” Ketil countered. “In this Land of Dream, surely there is a place where one could bake things. Or do ghouls find baked goods unpalatable?”

“Oh, Matey, I may have to consume rotting human flesh to maintain this terrible body, but I still have a great zest for baked goods,” Little John revealed sorrowfully. “I enjoy eatin’ ‘em, but I love the baking even more than the eating. When I was alive, my ideal brine and tupper was a good fresh bit of beef seasoned with savory herbs and accompanied by some lovely roast tatties, onions, and carrots. I’d have a bit of good wine and some of me own fresh-baked bread with butter. Loved it you would have, me buckos. T’ was a warm, crusty loaf which tasted just right with butter or cheese or jam. T’ was fit for a bleedin’ king! But now I’m a living dead thing, and there will be no bakeries or fine simple suppers. T’ is only rotting flesh for the rest of eternity.”

First Look Friday: Superstition and Tradition: An Unexpected Feast

Superstition and Tradition An Unexpected Feast

As Little John, Ketil, and Yitzy made their way to the second story of the House of Lost Dreams, they came upon an illuminated ballroom with a long table containing a preponderance of food fit for both the living and the Undead. They stood outside the doorway pondering the situation.

“I has reason to believe that Nyarlathotep has conjured this feast for us,” the snarky Swedish spectre mused. “Only an idiot would think otherwise. However, I cannot fathom why he chose an American Thanksgiving feast. None of us is American, and Yitzy is not even from Earth.”

“Should we investigate, Ketil?” Little John wondered. “Surrounded by the Dorothy Lamour frame, the va va voom looks loike a beautiful paintin' of a diamond feast. Of course, it could 'eaven and 'ell be a trap.”

“I imagine that it is a test of some sort even if not a trap as such,” Yitzy surmised. “I find it odd that although there are only three of us the place is set to accommodate several hundred guests.”

“We could give it a pass,” Little John proposed. “It does seem a bit much, which increases the bloomin' chances of it bein' a trap, daan't ya fin'?”

“I think that this overly opulent setting is quite on brand for Nyarlathotep,” Ketil replied. “Although he prides himself on being in tune with the inner motivation of those with whom he is fucking, he is used to setting traps for greedy arseholes what craves excess. Thus, he sees fit to bludgeon us with more food than we could consume within a month, forgetting that Yitzy and I do not even need to eat. Well, since he went to the trouble of conjuring this feast, I suppose it would be impertinent of us not to content ourselves with this plethora of provisions.”

“Perhaps something in this room will prove to be a catalyst for our mission,” Yitzy surmised.

“Either that or we must content ourselves to realize that we shall keep being pulled on a thread by the Cosmic Trickster, his equally manipulative daughter, and a vampire goddess whose greatest pleasure is draining the life from her victims,” Ketil mused. “Perhaps Nyarlathotep has been kind enough to leave us a tablet upon which to compose our clever plans. Or perhaps he leaved an arrow somewhere in the room with a sign declaring ‘the key to the third lock is this way.’ I have a desire to be propelling that beastly vase on that platform at his head, or to turn into an eagle and fly away from this house of insane fuckery.”

“Be careful wot ya say abaht wantin' ter turn into summit else, China Plate,” Little John cautioned. “Rilpu thought it would be sugar and spice ter 'ave German Bands and bacon and eggs, and she went and turned from a Joe Blake into a 'uman-like twist n twirl.”

Acknowledgments

Nyarlathotep is the creation of H.P. Lovecraft, initially appearing in his 1920 story of the same name.

Readers Roost: The Pornographer's Apprentice Book Promo and Guest...

Readers Roost: The Pornographer's Apprentice Book Promo and Guest...:   New Release! The Pornographer’s Apprentice The Toymakers Guild, Book 1 By Lisabet Sarai Steampunk Erotica, MF, MM, MFM, FF, etc...
Hear ye, hear ye! This book does not mess around! 
The Pornographer's Apprentice gets right to the pornographic apprenticing within the first two chapters. 
Some sex-packed books have no real story, just humping. Not so with The Pornographer's Apprentice. I will be writing a full review at a later date, but I've read about 1/4 of the advance review copy of this story. It is well written with a compelling plot as well as plenty of monitor-melting erotic heat. 
Readers who like their stories spicy should not miss this one.

A Special Offer


I have a special offer for anyone who likes/doesn't mind erotica.
After sitting on the shelf for two years, my little novelette, Coming to Earth, got its first rating.
One star.
If you would be interested in reviewing Coming to Earth and giving it a fair shake, I'll give you a promotional post on Readers Roost, regardless of the rating you give the book.
Just drop your email address in the comments, and I will send you the PDF. 
In return, you will send me your media kit and/or a Blogger-ready HTML post to promote your own book.
Simple, right?
To be honest, I wrote Coming to Earth as a joke, but I've developed a soft spot for it. I'm well aware that it is by no means great literature, but I think it is definitely a hi klass kwalitee klassic deserving of at least three stars, in my humble opinion. Anyway, it's worth more than one star. 
I hope you'll agree.
In any case, you'll get a free copy and a free promo. It's a win-win!
~Cie for Naughty Netherworld Press and Readers Roost~

Stripped to Please: Meeting Max #MFRWHooks

 

http://mfrwbookhooks.blogspot.com/
Note: Last week, I finished sharing as much of Coming to Earth as I'm willing to give away. I'm sharing Down on the Farm with the MFRW Steam hop, so today I'm going to start sharing snippets from Stripped to Please, the third novelette in the Carnal Invasion series. Links for purchasing the story or the first collection follow the snippet.
The BlurbWhen spoiled rich college boy Maxwell Bancroft decides to stop in at the XXX Show Club, he meets two sexy strippers who are literally out of this world.
The Snippet

Maxwell Bancroft had never been particularly good at anything, but Daddy’s money always bought him whatever he needed. That is, until Magnus Bancroft went and married Gloria Mack, who had a nice daughter about Maxwell’s age, and Max thought it would be fun to seduce his goody two-shoes stepsister and ruin her for every other guy who came along.

It wasn’t hard for Max to get Wella Mack into his bed, but that wasn’t because Wella was easy. Wella was proud of having held onto her virginity for twenty years. Max convinced Wella that theirs was a love that defied all odds. He assured her that there was no-one else in his heart. He told Wella that he loved her and succeeded easily at seducing the innocent and romantic young woman into bed.

The problem was, where Max succeeded, the condom failed, and Wella, who had been chaste until she met Max, was not on the pill. Wella fell pregnant, and now Max was being punished for his stupidity.

There are two ways to get your copy of Stripped to Please.You can either buy the individual story or purchase the Carnal Invasion collection, which contains the first four Carnal Invasion stories.
Buy Stripped to Please on Kindle for $0.99


Or buy the PDF from LBRY for 15 LBC (approximately $0.45)
https://lbry.tv/Carnal-Invasion-III--Stripped-to-Please--Precious-and-Exotic:54eb44d4fe7e0f3352ebb12a59cdc51056629cdd

And now, I ain't too proud to beg, y'all.
My poor little Coming to Earth went for two years with no ratings, and now its first rating is one star. I didn't read what was said, I don't need to be in a bad mood for the rest of the year. But if any of you would be willing to review the story, I'll send you a copy. 
Hopefully, you'll like it, but regardless of the rating you give it, I will feature a book of your choice at Readers Roost (http://ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com) as a thank you for giving it a chance. By feature, I don't mean I'll just throw out a link. You send me your media kit and/or Blogger-friendly HTML post, and I will post a bona fide promo post and share it on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for you.
Folks, I know that Coming to Earth is not five-star material. To be honest, I wrote it as a joke, but I developed a bit of a soft spot for it. I think it's worth at least three stars. Anyway, I would really appreciate the help lifting my little story out of the muck, if you can give it. 
And now for the inevitable...

Dreamers, lovers, and Star Voyagers: WeWriWa: EU53

Dreamers, lovers, and Star Voyagers: WeWriWa: EU53:                                                       Hello fellow warriors. :-) Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends. I hope you...
Sometimes shopping with a companion is enjoyable. My shopping companion is my son. He's very pragmatic and cost-conscious, which is mostly good but frustrates the part of me that wants shopping to be fun.
I've never been shopping with someone that I was romantically interested in. I think it might be distracting.
The food bank gave us an 18-pound turkey, which is very generous, but it's way too much food. I was hoping it would just be a turkey breast. I'm slow-roasting it overnight on Wednesday, then my son and I will take it over to my mother's house for lunch on Thanksgiving. We're still going to have turkey for ages.

Spooky Sunday: Carved in Flesh: Lost and Lingering

 


Carved in Flesh Lost and Lingering

Dominic Dante bowed his head to hide his face as he emerged from the alley on Elmwood Avenue between Swanson’s Elegant Formals and Aeneid’s Greek Cafe. He needed to find Eris and show her the evidence of his devotion.

Aeneid Veld’s rebellious eleven-year-old daughter Anna Amalia had chosen the wrong night to sneak out of the loft above the café. The street-savvy girl had slipped out at night many times before. She did not fear Crouch End’s strange underbelly. She had been learning from a book of spells that she’d purchased at Flash’s Book Studio for her birthday last year and had gained a fair bit of respect from many of Crouch End’s Things that Go Bump in the Night.

On this night, however, Anna Amalia had run afoul of an obsessed soul seeking an innocent to sacrifice. Dominic Dante was a tormented young man who thirsted for both vengeance and acceptance. The stunningly sexy vampire he met at the Church of Starry Wisdom had promised him both if he proved himself to her.

Luckily for Anna Amalia, she had allies in the shadowed night world and Earth’s Dreamlands. One of those allies was hurrying to find help before the unfortunate girl succumbed to her injuries.

David Clifford was a Scottish musician who had moved to London in 1960, the year he turned eighteen. His parents and younger siblings moved to Crouch End three years later. David had died in 2012 from lung cancer. On this cold November night in 2014, he roamed the streets in spirit.

David’s adopted sister, Lotus Clifford, was a nun who lived in The Chapel of the Loaves and Fishes on Foxglove Court, along with the parish’s priest, Father William Kroger. David knew that Lotus and Father Will would certainly assist Anna, and he knew that Lotus would listen to him if he could break through the static surrounding her.

Luck was with David, as at that moment, a down-on-his-luck laborer named Robert Fitzgerald stumbled from the Istasha Tavern. Most people thought that Rob Fitzgerald was naught but a malt-soaked malingerer, but David was aware that the man had the second sight, even when he was seeing double. The spirit hurried to place himself just outside the lamplight directly in Fitzgerald’s path, allowing the lamp’s beams to illuminate him without making him appear transparent.

Rob Fitzgerald was deep in blurry thought when he saw the man standing near the house at the junction where Elmwood Avenue met Quartz Street. His first inclination was to cross the street and head home another way, but for reasons he couldn’t explain, he felt that the somehow familiar stranger could be trusted. Still, he paused before continuing further.

“Just so’s ya know, Mate, I drank up the last of me wages in the tavern,” Rob slurred. “So, there wouldn’t be no sense to robbin’ me, y’know.”

Acknowledgments
