Standing Her Ground's mother, Catherine and Elizabeth Stanton. I started working on this story three years ago after the first time I heard about "corrective rape," but I could never get the story to flow. It's finally taking off. I've written over 14,000 words. And then, I realized I gave Elizabeth the wrong job. OOPS!

I've had my grandkids several days over the past couple of weeks and haven't been able to put the finishing touches on The Circle of Confusion: It's All New: Meeting New Friends episode. I also have not had a chance to put together the cover. It's very, very close to being ready and I appreciate your patience. Here's a little taste of the story to hold you over.
I see Jamie coming up the sidewalk. Her dark hair is pulled back in a ponytail. She is wearing red shorts and a black tank top. I can see the definition of her legs from where I’m standing several feet away. Her smile widens as she sees me checking her out.
The first time I checked her out back in high school, she had no clue that I was doing it. I used to hang with a pretty rough crowd, and Jamie had never really paid much attention to me. She was a popular cheerleader and dating Todd Baxter, one of the basketball players. I was just beginning to suspect that I might be gay, and the attraction I felt for her was a part of that early confusion. I’d see her coming into the school building as my friends and I stood around outside talking, and I would watch her. She was beautiful. At the time, I didn’t understand why I felt so compelled to watch for her every day, but now I know it’s because I was falling in love with her.

I also planned to release the first episode of The Circle of Confusion: It's All New on June 10th. That still might happen. The episode is written. It's told from P. J. and Jamie's point of view, plus I'm introducing two new characters, Lori and Kayla who will be part of P. J. and Jamie's group of friends. I'll post a link for you all once it is available. This first episode will be free on Amazon and I hope to hear what you all thing about the story.

Suddenly is just a few keystrokes away from release. I'm going to load it to Amazon this weekend and check it out to make sure there isn't anything that still needs fixed and officially re-release it under my partner and my book label, Tea Rose Books.
I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks about reading the story for the first time, or reading it again. I know I loved reading it again. It is, by far, still my favorite story of everything I've written. Plus, with this done, I can start working on new projects. :)
I hope you will write me and tell me what you think about this story, or any other story I've written at email@example.com. Namaste! M. E.

I love music and I always built a play list for my stories. I love finding songs that I think fit with my story. This song was what can to mind when I wrote the following scene in Second Chances:
"Think about it. I’m sure Mom would love for you to stay.” Casey wanted her to stay, too.
“I’ll think about it.”
“Pam…uh…,” Casey began, “I…uh...wanted to apologize for being so forward at the bar.” Casey paused, and then said, “But I’m not really sorry about what I did.”
Pam could feel the blush creeping up her neck. “It’s okay. I enjoyed it.”
Casey’s whole body flushed with heat at Pam’s words. “Really?”
“Yes,” Pam paused, a little surprised by what she was about to admit this to Casey. “I used to look forward to the way you always tried to touch me. I’ve been sorry many times that I didn’t give in and let you.”

I have three major projects for this month, and hopefully I'll get at least one of them done. The one I want to finish the most, is the editing and re-releasing of Suddenly. I know there are several people wondering what happened to that book. The publisher it was originally published with went out of business, so the title was returned to me. The original editing was very poorly done, so I've been going over it with a fine tooth comb. My goal is to make it available again before the end of March.
The other two projects I'm working on are my Christmas romance, that I didn't finish in time for Christmas, and a new drama that will cross the boundaries of lesbianism and transsexualism. It's been an interesting story that has taken twists that I didn't expect, so I hope the readers will be equally as surprised as I have been.
