Now about this book...

I believe it’s time to talk about this book. One part of me is so excited I can barely sit still, yet I’m so nervous. I’ve been posting my stories here for seven years. Literally fifties of people have read them, LOL! If you have read here from the beginning then yes, you will recognize many of the stories. But trust me, there are expanded and I think improvements – more detail you might say.

Although I’ve removed some of these old stories I am not about to stop writing new ones.  I suppose things might have to change a little. PK is doing the work of turning hundreds of random post into a book – or as she tells me, books.  So now when I post a new story I might not be able to leave it up indefinitely, a few weeks maybe?

It’s not a perfect plan. I love having all my stories here so people can go back and read, but this seems to be like the best compromise. I hope you’ll still come by and visit. You can’t imagine how your comments encourage me to write more and more. I know the book is being published by Lazy Day Publishing and is coming out on December 11th. If you want to know more you can email PK at or go by PK Corey's Reading Room, you'll find snippets of the book every Saturday. If you ever want to talk to me, I’ll be here, and I so love to talk to my readers.

Everyone is welcomed here

To my dear silent readers, welcome. I know this isn’t a highly visited blog, but I hope each and everyone of my readers realize that this just means you are that much more special to me.

If you read here, if you find enjoyment in reading about Sue and Steve, Annie and Andy, Ryan and Allie, dear Lily or me and Tom, I hope you’ll leave a comment, a quick hello so that I know you’ve been by and shared a moment with us.

I don’t know what changes may have to occur here in the next month or so, but please know I’m going to try my best to stay pubic and opened to everyone. In case that’s not possible please make note of my email address and feel free to contact me in case I’m not around.

Welcome everyone.

A new story

I just wanted to let everyone know that there is a new story about Tom and me over at PK Corey's Reading Room. I hope you'll go by and have a read as well as check out all the other Spank or Treat stories offered this weekend.

I finally have some time this weekend to do some writing here - give me the weekend to work on it and I'll try to have something new for you. Don't give up on me, I promise I have more stories to tell.

Sweet Paul

Sweet Paul, my dear big brother. You have been here for me from the very beginning. I believe, unless you were in the hospital, that you have commented on every post I’ve put here in the past seven years. You’re as committed and loyal as any birth brother could have been. I hope you have a most wonderful birthday and please know I’m thinking of you and wishing we could be together today.

Your baby sister

Happy Birthday,Kat

Today is a special day for a dear friend of mine. Kat and I met when she sent me a lovely email introducing herself and we quickly became friends with a few things in common.  The people we loved the most, the very joy of our lives were the bossiest thing you’ve ever met!

Now don’t get mad Natalie, you and Tom both know it’s the truth. You are both bossy, overbearing, and far too strict – and we love you more than you’ll ever know.

But now I’ll stop picking on Natalie and wish the happiest of birthdays to Kat! I hope you’ll drop by Ana’s place, Governingana, and say hey to everyone and leave your own wishes for Kat’s birthday.

I’ve only gotten to meet these lovely ladies once. I enjoyed our visit immensely, and although you might say it brought me a little trouble, it ultimately lead to Lily joining our family – so all’s well that ends well. You can read about that here if you like.

Kat I hope your day is absolutely wonderful!

* I have something more to tell you about Allie, but I’m still absorbing. I’ll be back soon.
