Lottie's Pick of the Week: Fifty Shades

Fifty Shades of Grey is a passionate piece of literature first released in 2011. The storyline has obvious parallels to the Twilight Saga with a uniqueness that sets it apart from other types of romances. Anastasia Steele is volunteered to interview the enigmatic and powerful Christian Grey for her campus magazine. Her roommate was supposed to interview him but was too ill. Ana finds Grey sexy and interesting to the point of bumbling through the interview. I had found that Fifty Shades of Grey, along with its sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Free, is not much different than simple romances. However, the explicit sex scenes clearly place them in the genre of erotica. There are several displays of BDSM (dominance/submission, sadism/masochism) that tend to intrigue even the most conservative of women, thus spanning through the many age groups. The main fan-base, however is the women of the 30+ range. Fifty Shades has become viral. The writing is anything but extraordinary, but the sexual anticipation (and participation) definitely fills needs most of us don't realize we have. Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed continues in the relationship between Ana Steele and Christian Grey. Expect more of the sexual domination, the searing love making and the imaginative erotica that has created the Fifty Shades phenomenon.

How to Breed Creativity

Is there something that you do during the day that just makes your mind burst with ideas? Is it driving in the car or folding laundry? I get mine at crazy times. I am in the process of organizing my cabinets. I am a week behind on the 52 Weeks to an Organized Home Challenge. Last week was organizing cabinets and drawers. I did drawers first day but it kinda dwindled from there. So, this week was supposed to be sorting out food storage and pantry but today I am finishing up the cabinets from last week. Enjoying it, actually. While I was emptying everything under the sun out of what was supposed to have been only a pan cabinet but held everything from a spice rack I forgot I had to two rolls of aluminum foil that I thought I was out of, my mind went to that pantry and how it isn't working for me. I suddenly got inspired to move my pantry and rebuild. Then I thought of my next book and a new way to outline that would take me to the top. I was on a roll. In the mean time, I had totall…

Unlimited Amazon?!

Unlimited reading? Unlimited listening? SOLD! I always tend to run out of things to read and have to hit my Amazon Kindle store to buy more e-books. I also have the same problem with audio books which I just can't get enough of. I saw something about Kindle Unlimited and had to check it out. With this program, and for a nominal monthly fee, I can read and listen to my little heart's content!
It's $9.99 a month and you can cancel at any time (always a plus for me).  I realize that it isn't something new to the Amazon community but somehow I just overlooked it. Check it out and let me know what you think of it. Leave a comment below and we will chat!

Homemade Mixes from the Hearth

It's time to get back to basics. We live in a fast paced world of instant everything. Even our browsers are full of shortcuts and instant access. I can't say much since I have all of these and more. This is true in my office, my truck and my home. The one place that I knew I had to take pause and start from scratch is the kitchen. No, I won't turn this into a homemaking page. Don't worry. It is still books, books and more books. I did, however, combine the two worlds in a cookbook that I compiled using the recipes I tweaked and twisted until it was perfect. In other words, back to basics.
Allow me the moment of a free plug of my other blog, The Pink Executive. I share my haphazard wisdom of the home while I write, promote and learn from other authors and readers, alike. I hope you take the time to check it out along with my new recipe book, Homemade Mixes from the Hearth. I hope you enjoy using the recipes as much as I do and please leave a comment below.
