WIP Les-isms

So for those who actually read (and liked) my book… Yes I’m working on SOL number two. No it’s not done… I thought I share some of my favorite  “Les-isms” to date… I don’t know how many of these will make it to the final copy, but they were a lot of fun to write….

Quick Reminder

I want to see more REAL men. Preferably NAKED REAL men… Or not.

I came across this post I want to see more REAL men. Preferably NAKED REAL men.. a while back (Go ahead, read, I’ll wait… waiting… waiting… la la… )  Amusing yes? It’s a good start, but it doesn’t go far enough… I would like to suggest a few additional articles : Creative Duct-taping, going beyond muffling…

There’s no place like home…

Hey Peeps! Since I’ve carried my blue haired self back home to visit my Mama (hence the lack of regular posting and neglected social media presence,) So over the next few days I thought I’d share my love of Mooresville, Nc. For those not familiar with the area, Mooresville is located in southern North Carolina…

My Cover Art…

Folks have been asking about the first “The Science of Loving” cover and why I changed it then returned to it. So it’s like this: I loved most of the original illustration. I spent forever getting the tattoo designed just right. But days started turning into weeks of digital painting. Writing and editing chores weren’t…

Cover me….Dead Dwight update…
