Spirit Guides



This past Saturday I attended Carole Eve's - Connecting With Your Spirit Guide workshop at Cosmic Connections. Me and Odessa are already pretty close, so I didn't go into the workshop expecting to learn a whole lot. But after hearing her speak at an earlier event, Odessa decided she liked Carole Eve and insisted we go.

I'm glad we did attend because it was an amazing experience. During the meditation Odessa introduced me to my higher guide, Iam. In Spirit Guide terms the higher guide is basically the head honcho. Other spirit guides come and go as you need them in your life, but the higher guide is with you from your birth until your death. This is the guide that in Odessa's terms "bosses everyone else around", or in Odessa's case at least Iam tries to keep her reigned in.

Your guides can come to you in any form. Sometimes I see Odessa as clearly as if she were a real person and she can talk to me at anytime from anywhere. If there is a psychic in the room they usually pick up on her energy. That's how strong she comes through.

Iam chose to appear to me looking a lot like a dark haired version of Dylan in Headlocks and Hexes. One of those guys that really just too pretty to be a guy. We've not done a lot of talking yet, with Odessa it is sometimes hard to get a word in edgewise. He's more the strong silent type, but when he does speak his words bear enormous significance.

He's a very old soul that has not walked the earth in many many years. He's told me that he was a writer in his human form and he is the one who gives voice to all my male characters. He also told me that I've never settled down with one guy for any length of time because no one can compare to him. Funny how all my guides seem to have a bit of an ego.

Odessa and Iam share a bond from at least one previous life time that I am aware of. He was a spirit guide for "Roger" during the time in which he first met and fell for Odessa. This was also at the height of "Roger's" in ring career during the early 1960s. With Odessa being a witch and a Medium she was able to sense Iam presence and of course he knew all about her. That makes it kinda interesting that he chose her to come through as my dominant guide. Unless he was as taken with her as "Roger" certainly was.

I also learned that Odessa's "Adam" is one of my spirit guides. I found that intriguing in that so far other than showing me the details of his murder, he mainly just shows up to fuck me in my sleep. Not that I'm complaining! Although, his visits do tend to put Odessa in a bit of a snit. She doesn't seem to understand that "Adam" is just using my body as the only way he has to continuing to make love to her.

We also learned that Eddie is still hanging around because he's fascinated by "Adam". They would have made incredible business partners if they had connected when they were both living. I'd also be willing to wager he's got a bit of a crush on Odessa too. "Who doesn't?" She says in the background.

Carole Eve is going to be doing an advanced Channeling class at Cosmic Connections at the end of September that I hope to be able to attend. If you would like to know more about the concept of Spirit Guides I found this great link from Crystalinks.

Snow Angels




I am pleased to announce that my erotic short story Snow Angel has been contacted to be in Evernight Publishing's upcoming Holiday anthology - Stockings and Suspenders.


I'd like to thank my MCRW chapter mate and friend, Carolyn Rosewood, for encouraging me to submit to Evernight. She's also in the anthology with a hot and steamy menage.


Hopefully I'll be doing more projects with Evernight in the future. I've really enjoyed reading Carolyn's Seduced By a Demon series and am looking forward to the release of the third book, Playing for Keeps.


Brian and Minerva are still dancing around in my head, so I'm thinking they're going to wind up getting a full book of their own. Until then, here's my snippet...



With a book on the New York Times bestseller list and a new six figure contract Minerva should have been on top of the world. Instead she's stranded on a deserted highway on Christmas Eve with no cell phone signal. Not that she was really looking forward to facing her family with a major case of writers block and no man to bring home for the holidays.

All that changes when she's rescued by a hunky construction worker who takes her back to his cabin in the words. Their one night of passion restores her self-confidence and Brian gives her the most incredible Christmas gift she could ever ask for, the return of her muse.

Seduced By A Demon



It's me, Odessa, here again to grace you with my presence.

I'm taking over the blog again because Jezebel is being a total bitch and ignoring me to write some silly short story about fake people. She calls it fiction. I say my story is much more interesting and entertaining than that smut she's working on at the moment. She's also talking to my beloved "Adam" and I do NOT appreciate her having the hots for my man. Bitch is just asking to wake up one morning with a bed full of snakes.

Anyway, now that I finally talked her into buying a Nook I can finally read without straining my eyes on that tiny little pink iPhone of hers. What's the deal with her and pink? She even ordered a pink cover for the damn Nook. But I digress...

As mentioned previously, I've decided to tell you all about one of my favorite reads, Carolyn Rosewood's Seduced by A Demon series by Evernight Publishing. I especially enjoyed book #2 Hunted because Jahi Wickes is the kind of character I can relate to, a strong chick with a cool job of forging documents to help those in the other realm. And did I mention she's a demon? I find that a very endearing character trait.

Then there's Dagon, a hunky bounty hunting fallen angel with the hots for Jahi. I'm not going to share all the juicy details of how they hook up because that would totally spoil the story for you. But, let's just say that when they do get around to doing the nasty I enjoyed it almost as much as they did.

I'll admit that I have a bit of a weak spot for Vassago because being a spirit guide I can only image how hard that guardian angel shit must have been for him. It's not easy when the human you're supposed to be helping has a mind of her own, and Jahi most definitely does. That whole guarding souls in Purgatory punishment thing seems a bit harsh, but it works to make the story exciting.

I really dig the whole Seduced by a Demon concept because Carolyn does an awesome job of world building. I felt like I was right there with Jahi, Dagon and Vassago. Having been to the other side myself, I'd say she nailed it and she makes the whole demon thing seem like so much fun. In my last human form I stole two men's hearts so I know I'd totally rock the demon gimmick.

Hum... I wonder if I could come back as a demon in my next reincarnation?

While I'm researching that quandary, I strongly suggest you go order both The Last Soul and Hunted

Australia


Greetings! 

Tis I... Odessa... The Ghostess with the Mostess... The Spirit with the Sizzle... yadda, yadda, yadda.

As if I need an introduction... Let's get real here...

I'm Jezebel's Spirit Guide from the Other Side and a star in her Ring Dreams series that is soon to be released by Gypsy Shadow Publishing. Billy Dalton's got nothing on yours truly when it comes to cutting a promo and speaking of the gorgeous Billy, if he doesn't make your panties wet when you're reading Jezebel's books I think you need to seek medical assistance for female hormonal issues.

Anyways, my Person's alter ego Edie Rohde (Don't you just adore that name - I selected it as a tribute to the two loves of my life) is supposed to be working on edits to her Young Adult manuscript SHATTERED. Our friend Pattie LaRue gave her some awesome advice on how to spruce up the story to make it really shattering.

Edie was at the part of the story where I take off to Australia with Billy (and what woman wouldn't want to go to The Land Down Under with the man who totally has it going on down under - if you get my drift) I thought I'd take a little vacation to Australia.

You would think that without me screaming in her head that she might be able to better listen to Amalie and tell her story the way it's meant to be told. Well, we did good on that part. Amalie is coming through loud and clear. 

To keep myself amused while Edie's writing I decided to take over her blog and maybe even her Twitter. I've also been checking out some ebooks on the Person's iPhone. I must say I am totally digging Carolyn Rosewood's Seduced by a Demon series. Hot, spicy, and not human = yummy words! I might just do another blog on that a little later, but until then you'd better go buy The Last Soul and Hunted because they rock and I said so.

Now where was I? Oh yeah, the Person...

The problem is my Person is going off antidepressants. I told the bitch to just flush them down the toilet like I always did with mine every time someone tried to drug me up. But she's listening to her doctor and weaning off them. Apparently she needs me here because she can't do the orange light shielding spell without me.

Last night the Person was supposed to go to a coven meet and greet. Without me there to shove her out the door she stayed home and had pizza and Smirnoff Ice with that fat ass dog. Not that I don't love that dog, but come on, his butt is bigger than Tommy Dreamer's. 

Then she told me I can't bring any snakes home from my trip. Australia has the most varieties of poisonous snakes of any country in the whole world. Talk about torture. I simply adore snakes and I've never met a single one who didn't love me in return. I totally fell for this beautiful red belly black snake and named him Rafa after you know who, thinking she'd be cool with a Rafa in the house. 

That snake is way cuter than the dog and he wouldn't be nearly as expensive to feed. I was even going to keep him on the balcony and let him go play in the woods because it's a sin to cage a snake. But, no... they all told me NO SNAKES allowed.

So I'm back and I'm bored. What's a witch to do?

Wow!


This is the best match I've seen in a really long time.

If the little girl was a blond in short shorts and a tank top it would be Courtney come to life at that age!

That kid has got to be 2nd or 3rd generation and exposed to the business from the day she was born.

She knows how to work. She's got great psychology. She know's how to sell. Look at her facials and body language. And she's a little bump machine.

She's better than 99% of the guys on the Indy scene. 

Put the NWA title on her!
