“Do any of us know what to look for?” Layla asked.
Dylan shrugged his shoulders. I can’t say for sure, but you know there’s this book that helped me. It’s called, ‘How to Love’, by Gordon Livingston, a psychiatrist out of Columbia, Maryland.
“How did the book help you?” Layla asked.
“I don’t know really, there was something about the way the author said to look for kindness, empathy and optimism in a prospective mate. Look for good character traits. He also talked about what personality types to avoid. It was just something about that book. Like it was a road map or something, a blue print.” Dylan said.
“So, what did he say to avoid.” Layla asked.
“You’d have to read it.” Dylan said, taking a sip of his water. “The main point he made is to gauge how you feel around people. He also said to be honest with yourself. The most important traits were genuine kindness and empathy. Oh, yeah, and he said to stay away from boring people.”
“Boring people? Is that right?” Layla laughed.
“Your fiancĂ©, how did you know you loved him?"
I… I don’t know." Layla said. “I mean I love him. He’s great. We work. It’s time to get married.”
“Just like that.”
“Yeah, at 35, just like that.”
“It’s time.”
“Says who?”
“Says the part of me that wants a baby.”
Dylan smiled. The elevator was silent.
“You can use donor eggs.” Dylan said.
“Donor eggs, what do you know about some donor eggs. Are you a doctor?”
“Funny, you should ask. I am.”
“Yes, one of the med students runs the limo service to make money while he’s in school. Me and my boys fill in for him sometimes. And, well he knows I’m single, and when you called… “.
“Always plotting. Do y’all men ever quit?” Layla said smiling.
“I’m Chief Resident at Hopkins.”
“Is that so?”
“It is.”
“Will you specialize?”
“I will.”
“Here we go with the two-worders again.”
“Psychiatry. That’s my specialty. That’s how I know about Livingston.”
“Well, I guess I better get that book.” Layla said laughing.
The elevator was silent again.
“So, you’re getting married in three days to a great guy. Well, that’s… ah… great.” Dylan said.
“Yeah, I guess it is,” Layla said.
“Really, what is it about him?” Dylan asked, probing.
“I like him. I think he’s good for me. My family likes him. He’s got a great job. Why not? I want kids, soon, like I said. He’d make a great father.”
“So, just like that, huh?” Dylan continued.
“Well, I used to believe the heavens would open up and my heart would skip a beat. Now, though, I’m looking for someone who is kind, who has empathy. Someone I can be kind to as well. Someone who enjoys the same things I do. Someone who knows my faults and loves me anyway. Someone with whom I don’t have to be anyone but me. Someone with whom there’s not a lot of negotiating, just a lot of kind, loving acceptance.
“That is beautiful,” Layla said, staring out into the darkness. "So, how will you find that person?"
“That I don’t know.” Dylan laughed. “Who knows, maybe she will find me.”
"How’s your head?" He asked, changing the subject abruptly.
“Okay, I think. Layla said feeling the makeshift bandage Dylan had placed around her head.
“Here, lay your head on my lap." Dylan said.
Layla followed his orders. His lap was warm, welcoming. Soft, then hard… then harder and harder. Suddenly his enlarged penis nearly hit her in the head. She tried to rest. It kept pulsing, pulsing. Dylan didn't try to stop it. He put his hand on her head. Layla’s right hand instinctively moved to the sight of the pulsing. Before she knew it, she had his penis out of his Calvin Klein’s and was licking it from the base of his balls to the head of his hammer. It was thick like a soda can, and tasted like a milk chocolate Hershey bar. It had the most amazing taste. It was clean, and sweet.
Layla licked around the head, then back at the base where it all began. She took it in her mouth, then placed it slowly between her 38 DDs. She sucked it hard until he began to drip. Lick, drip, lick, lick, drip, drip. She couldn’t get enough. She steadied herself on her knees, pushed her ass up in the air, put her face straight down in the center of it, and got to business. When Dylan came, and he did… hard… complete. She made sure to take it all in her mouth. He fell back as she swallowed it. Layla licked her lips, realizing and wondering why she did not suck Wade’s penis that way. Why didn’t she relax that way with him? In that instant, she began to wonder whether she trusted Wade? Extraordinary sex, requires true surrender, vulnerability, honesty, truth. She remembered reading that somewhere. Did she trust Wade? She wondered again.
Just as Layla was wiping her mouth with her hands, light began to peek through the elevator doors. Bit by bit the light came in, until ...
“What the hell! Layla! Who is… ?” She heard Wade saying. Awe no… She heard Joi saying. “I knew it, and I ain’t mad at you!”
“I told you that crooked politician wasn't no good for you anyway.” Cynthia chimed in.
One of New Jersey’s finest, Officer Moses Elton, quickly inserted himself between the small opening in the elevator. “Step back, everybody. Step back. Calm down.” He said.
Come was still dripping down Layla’s mouth, and Dylan’s ten-inch dick was still at alert.

I feel compelled to do good with my writing - to create and deliver work that moves us forward as a society.

Blog Tour: Incredible

Blog Tour Hosted By

What do you do if you discover the life you’re living isn't the one you were meant to have?
Tori Farrell’s path has been a long one. She was raised by a Motorcycle Gang called the Dragons, trained as an assassin, and lived by the sword in a world consisting of drugs, sex, violence and murder. She made her escape, and even successfully thwarted a second attempt to draw her back in.
Returning to her safe new life, Tori faces unforeseen challenges, as the discovery of her Rock Star relation, Brian Madson, gives way to the desire to have the life she was born to live. Haunted by fear, and caught in a fierce battle between her husband and brother, she must learn to accept her dark past and face her future boldly. The FBI and The Organization still linger in the shadows, and time is creeping forward, pushing her to choose. Which path will she take, and where will it lead, when she is forced to decide between destiny and fate”

Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.
I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.

Michael trudged on towards his current home, the one he and Tori had restored before she went away. Making it into the house, he began to strip, looking forward to the hot steamy cascade. 'I’m so glad we bought the tankless water heater.' He had suggested it for her, knowing how much she loved her showers, but tonight, he was going to enjoy the hell out of it.
As soon as he was clean, he leaned the top of his head against the wall, allowing the water to wash over his tired muscles. His mind unwinding, he thought about his wife; 'I miss her so much. I wish I had some word on how things were going, or when I could expect her home.' Images of her flittering about in his head, he rested his hand against the wall where he often held her, allowing the idea of her beautiful nakedness to distract him for the moment.
Standing beneath the spray for a good 20 minutes, he finally decided he had had enough. Using the towel to pat himself dry and give his sandy brown curls a good tussle, he slipped into the bedroom to put on his clothes and find something to eat. 'Damn. I don’t even want to go back down to the cafĂ©, and it’s probably past closing anyways.'

Glancing over at the clock as he pulled on his jeans, he confirmed the time. 'Yup, I missed dinner. Oh well, got a couple of steaks in the fridge, I might as well cook me one of those.' Pulling on his shirt, he froze, listening intently. 'What the hell? That sounded like my wife, calling my name!' Reaching the bedroom door, he bolted out into the hall, his heart pounding out of control.

Blog Tour: MANscape

MANscapes Journey into the light 
By Manuela Cardiga's 

Blog Tour 

About MANscapes 
" All women - from the most exquisite beauty to the plainest drab - want to believe in the Cinderella myth. Even the harsh-faced and sour-hearted, somewhere deep in their night-time struggles with their bitterest reality, dare to dream some Prince could still see past the dense veil of unkind nature and time, to the delicate, frail-hearted beauty within." 

But Clara wasn't Cinderella, waiting for her Prince, she was Sleeping Beauty poisoned by a deadly kiss. After 24 years Clara awakens from a living nightmare of abuse and discovers her life unfolding miraculously; but the true miracle is her own blossoming: the maturing of a frightened abused girl into a strong woman capable of love, laughter and joy. In Tahiti's exotic landscape Clara finds her way from darkness to incandescent light, embracing in herself the strength of choice, and the power of decision.

MANscapes is a powerful parable of hope and renewal, a story of one woman's discovery of herself and her journey into love.

Manuela Cardiga was born in Mozambique and raised in South Africa where she studied fashion design. She moved to Europe where she worked as a fashion designer, then moved to the crazy world of advertising as a graphic designer and copywriter. Manuela is a designer by profession, a cook by vocation, and a writer by compulsion. She currently resides in Lisbon, Portugal where she writes contemporary and historical fiction, designs book covers, illustrates children’s books, and mothers a gorgeous daughter while juggling a day job. She also dabbles enthusiastically in exotic, experimental cuisine, much to the discomfort of family and friends.

Clara is a young woman from a small town who comes to Lisbon to study Art. She has just begun her adventure of self-discovery in the extravagant bohemian world of the late 70’s, when her journey is abruptly cut short by a brutal rape by an acquaintance.

In the aftermath, Clara finds herself pregnant, and her family pressures her into marrying the man who assaulted her, and who claims “she was willing”. Clara is plunged into a nightmare of abuse that is to last two decades.

One day something changes. A chance encounter, a word spoken in passing by a stranger, and Clara awakens. Wakes and takes charge of her life. She frees herself of the nightmare and of her oppressor, but can she heal herself of the scars years of abuse have left on her spirit?

Determined to continue her interrupted journey, Clara goes to Tahiti to fulfill her childhood dream and “paint like Gauguin”.

On the magical island of Moorea, Clara enters a world of endless possibilities where she starts to blossom as a woman, and an artist. There, Clara meets the right man, and falls in love with the wrong one…

A return to Lisbon gifts Clara with vindication, closure, and triumph over her abuser, and yet her trials have just begun. She is about to discover the path of life rarely runs smoothly, and before she can reach for happiness, Clara must grow.

She must shed the abused girl and become a woman, capable of making the hardest of decisions, taking responsibility for herself and a new life.  Setting out on the difficult road that leads to maturity, Clara must complete her journey from darkness into light.
