Who wants to Party?






Happy June everyone!
I cannot believe this month is finally here. It has lots happening for me and I want to share some exciting news.
Coming this Friday the 9th, I turn 50 years old! Can I believe it? NO! I don’t look or feel 50 but then again what is 50 suppose to be like? Everyone is different in how they act, look and feel and besides, it’s just a number. I will forever be 28. LOL
My PA-Karen Williams has a lot of fun activities, lots of giveaways and a great line up from my author friends for my Birthday Bash that I am having over on Facebook in the NuRomantics group(must request membership). Not only do I turn 50, but I will also be a Georgia Peach. I will get to meet a few people also who I am friends with on here that I am excited about. You might even see me dance LIVE! But that is if we get lots of request.
I am excited to start a new adventure in my next stage of life while I can.
I am also releasing a short story called “Passing in the Night.” Do not miss out on your exclusive copy.
You can see teasers and the cover on any of the Social Media sites if you follow me. Be sure to like my author page and help me reach 500 likes/followers here: @AuthorToriDean247

REFLECTIONS





Happy Sunday, May 14th
It’s a sunny 50 degree morning. The birds are singing their joyful tunes. A slight breeze whipping through my hair. And I sit here reflecting on life.
Do you ever get so lost out there daydreaming, where you stare at something and it puts you in a trance?
It happens to me occasionally. Sometimes I think it stops time, but not really.
Anyway, I reflect upon life, that we as people need to change things in our lives to make us happy. You are the only person who can make yourself happy. It’s the elements around you that reflect your happiness.
You cannot live a POSITIVE life, if you think NEGATIVE thoughts!
Soon I will be embarking on a new adventure doing just that and so many things I am excited about. New people, new home, and a new job. WOW! Half a century old and people must think I’m crazy. Wait! I am crazy but that doesn’t make me a bad person. I’m crazy FUN!
The best part of this, is that I am going somewhere that I know some people and related to one. Not to mention meet some others.
Be sure to stay tuned in the next month and I will have a surprise for you as long as my plans go accordingly as planned.
In the meantime, If you get a chance…stop and reflect on your positive energy. Take a deep breath and enjoy your journey you are on.  Remove that negative shit and remember, it’s up to you!
What changes do you think you need to make yourself happy?
Think about it!
Take care and with much love,
TD

All are enthusiastically encouraged to participate and interact positively and constructively!

Charm, Flirt, Seduce, oh my!




Every wonder if you cross the line when you flirt someone?
Is it right or wrong?
I flirt a lot. I see it as trying to make someone smile, laugh and feel good about themselves. Perhaps that is all part of my Charm as I flirt. Wink wink

Charm:
Charm is the art of making people feel good in your presence. It is applicable to everyone.
The power or quality of giving delight or arousing admiration.
Everyone has a way to charm someone.

Flirting:
Flirting is the art of making people feel attractive. To behave as though attracted to or trying to attract someone through amusement rather than with serious intentions. It acknowledges sexuality, but not overly sexual. Its innocent. OR isn’t it?

Seduction:
Seduction is the art of the sexual proposal. A process of enticing a person, to engage in sexual behavior. Mutual agreement between two people.

You first need to be charming, and how to flirt, then seduction takes care of itself.
They all go together in a sense if you’re trying to attract someone attention to have a relationship with them. It needs to be mutual.

Have you ever crossed the line before?  I have! I mean who hasn't? We’re all human, right? It is never meant in any way of harming anyone, it’s a way of feeling that physical attraction. Words, body language, lust, desire all part of feeling and wanting something.

What is it worth?



As I sit back getting into writing mode again because there is a story to tell. I reflect on something that I wonder if it is worth it.
My character struggles with how she looks. Her tummy is flabby, she has scars and cellulite, but she is funny and has a positive attitude. Always looks on the bright side of things.
Her husband is blind to seeing her beauty and never tells her.
I think we all struggle with flaws of some sort.
One day she meets a man who see’s her completely different. He tells her she is fucking beautiful and how anyone can see it. She shows him pics of her body and he still tells her she is beautiful and ask her how she cannot see it. He tells her every day over a few months making her feel special but secrets came out that changed a few things. He has changed in what he says to her but they remain friends.
She meets another man and he tells her the same. They talk for a few months and then when she show him her body he tells her how beautiful she is, but after time, he up and leaves her. He doesn’t explain to her and she is left feeling she is not worth it. Not even the friendship and the things they shared about each other. She feels he only said those things to make her feel good for a short time.
Then another man comes into her life that he sees her as someone special and she is reserved and tries to distance herself but something about him draws her in. He tells her things she likes. After time they have sex and take their relationship to another level that gives her hope and happiness. Then shortly after it changes and he doesn’t know anymore what he wants. She thinks he wasn’t satisfied with her sexual performance or perhaps he  wants a younger more beautiful, intelligent woman who can make him feel young again or perhaps it’s a way of him saying he doesn’t want her without hurting her feelings.
She is left feeling she is not worth it again. If she was worth it, then the men would not leave her or lie to her. Is this a test for her to fight for him? If you don’t try, how will you know right?

So let me ask you...
Women..What is it worth to you to have a man think you are worth it?
Men..what is it worth to you to get a woman to believe she is worth it?
Would you fight for him or her and make them see how good they are together than apart?

Long time no hear!

Hello everyone!

Are you shocked? Are you still with me? Anyone? Anyone? Comment below to tell me you are still with me?

I want to apologize for the length of time that I have been MIA on my bog… But let me explain and tell a few things in the Tori Dean News…

Not only is my real life busy, but I have been locked out of my blog for some strange reason. I could get into it, but could not add to change anything to the format/template, nothing until recently when I figured out one of the pics I had was blocking me and I could not see it on my ipad to change it. I was limited until I went into it on my phone. Thank God for technology!

Now here I am to catch you up on some news...

I published Forbidden Genie which you can click on the image to get your copy or any of my other books listed there. It’s a sweet short love story. I’ll let you read about it to see if it's something you may want to read.

I also have my newsletter you can sign up for on the right side(scroll down), which I have neglected as well due to not enough time in the day and I need to learn how to keep it going, which I need to keep you informed and give you goodies on my stories, but I can do that here too, but I will try to get one out to give you a bonus scene to “Just ONE Bite” to DL if you have read that book. If not, I suggest you read JOB first. Hopefully you have had the chance to read it. So bare with me as I get back to setting it up and work on a quarterly one.

If you missed Mr. Blackthorne’s event on the 20th & 21st. I will be publishing 6 books this year if all goes good in my life. I have 5 erotic short sports stories(say that fast 10 times) and a stand alone book called “Elixir” that I shared at the event. I hope you will keep after me and hold me accountable on these as to when I am going to get these out and tell me to get busy so you can read them. I need a driving force behind me. Perhaps a whip to get my ass moving..LOL

I will not give you any dates on when I will publish because I tried to get Elixir for Feb. 18th(per my post awhile back) but life got away on me and I had every intention to complete it, then some moments of not wanting to write and health and family things going on.  I want to hang on FB with all my friends chatting and having fun. BUT then I realize I need to prioritize.

Anyone who DL my free book LUST back in December from Mr. Blackthorne’s site, I want to THANK YOU and I hope that you will leave an honest review on it. It would mean a lot to me to hear about what you think. It doesn’t need to be a lengthy review. Just one that will tell readers that they should read it. And if you did not like it, please tell me privately. I know I cannot please everyone and perhaps that was not the book for you, but I hope that means you would not give up on me. It will not change my friendship and I will not bitch at you because you didn’t like it.

OK, I am done for now and will try to keep up on my post unless I get locked out unexpectedly!
Thank you and have a great day!

A SWEET treat!



He pulls up to the Seaside Grill on Pier one. This is the last weekend of the pier carnival before they shut down for a few months to do maintenance work and the holidays. We have a great view of the ocean and the Pier.
We are seated by the window and it is decorated with a single purple rose in a vase with a piece of cardstock attached to it that I cannot read, some chocolates, and another card that says, “Do not open.” If I didn't know any better, I would think he planned this out in detail.
We order our food. I am antsy, wanting to open the note. Nothing like curiosity killing the cat. I reach over to read what the note on the rose says.
The Story of the Rose. God created the rose for Women in mind. It represents beauty. Not only what is on the outside, but what is inside the seed to make it blossom. Its petals represent soft skin. Its leaves represent outstretched arms, always loving and giving to others. Its stem represents strength. My hand covers my heart and tears well up in my eyes.
Katie, I give this rose to you, for you are special to me. Each time you look at the rose, remember…YOU are somebody. God did not take time to make a nobody.” The words are so heartfelt and I feel so full of love for this man sitting next to me.
He reaches over to wipe the tears that are spilling down my cheek. “You know that not only is purple your favorite color, but it represents a sign of enchantment and love at first sight,” he says, smiling. “I have been enraptured by your love and adoration and wanted to express it.”
I don’t think my heart can take much more of this man.
Once we are done eating, he grabs my hand and leads me out down to the pier with the rose and note in hand. He leads me right to the Ferris wheel and there is a line of about ten people. The Ferris wheel goes by a few seats and I think it’s weird that he doesn’t fill them up. It stops on my favorite number, eight, and the operator turns to Ben. “Here you go, sir; all yours.” I look at both of them skeptically, wondering what is going on.
Ben smiles and nods his head. He whispers something like ‘you know what to do’, but I can’t really tell.
I climb onto the seat, with Ben following. We get locked in and the wheel starts moving. He puts his arm around me and smiles.
We go around a couple of times, admiring the view. Something strange overcomes me, like déjà vu. All of sudden we stop at the top overlooking the pier and you can see a ways out over the city as well. As the ocean waves crash off to the sides, I take it all in. It is such a beautiful setting.
I look over at Ben and he is looking at me with a breathtaking smile. “You are so beautiful. You may open your card now if you want.” Pausing a moment, I graciously set my rose on my lap and open the card excitedly and read it out loud.
“Katie, you are the first thing I think about when I wake up and the last thing I think about when I go to sleep. You are my dream awake and I want your forever to be with me. Happy Sweetest Day. Will you marry me?”

I hope you have enjoyed this excerpt from Dreaming of You on this special day. Happy Sweetest Day my friends!
