So back to it – now in previous years I’ve always grumbled about how early shops get their Christmas decorations in and how, barely a Halloween pumpkin has gone mouldy before we’re thrust some jungle bells in our faces. 

This year though, I am over come with Christmas fever! I have been begging my household to get the Christmas tree out of the attic since All Saint’s Day and keep buying little tinsel treats to pop in random places around the house… they have flatly refused, saying it would be bad luck to put anything up before the first of December. Booo! 

The good this is now we are in Advent for real, my bells – they are a jingling! My home is festooned with the glory of sparkly tat – and do you know what? I am in Heaven!

Merrrrry Blissemass!

Here is a little bit about that book I mentioned… 😀

Taking Flight by Tabitha Rayne
“Find me at the meeting point. We are
more than the physical.”

Four generations from now, toxins are ravaging the land and the future of mankind
is in peril. The surviving men are being rounded up and taken to holding
facilities. Research scientist, Dr Deborah Regan is hoping to stabilise the
decreasing male population before her lover, Marcus becomes one of those taken
the authorities come looking for Marcus, Deborah abandons her research to go on
the run with her lover. They flee to the forests where they stumble across a
couple who are intent on finding an ultimate sexual union where at the point of
climax their spirits break free from their bodies and unite. Plunged into a
life of lust and survival, Deborah soon realises she can easily slip into this
trancelike state and she and Marcus set out to create a transcendent bond of
their own. Can they achieve the ultimate unity before fate separates them for
An erotic dystopian fantasy following
a young couple trying to elude capture and separation.
The prequel to A Clockwork Butterfly.

Little snippet…

‘I want us to
have what they have,’ Marcus said slowly and quietly, but not gently enough to
disguise the lust that flirted at the edges of his words. ‘I want to own you in
the way he owns her, and I want you to own me in the way she owns him.’
‘What do you
mean? We do belong to each other.’ Deborah reached up and cupped his jaw.
‘Yes, I know,’
he said, bringing her even closer in to him. ‘But I want a bond that transcends
all else. I want to know that no matter where we are, who we’re with, or what
we’re doing, the bond between us will be unbreakable.’
‘You’re not
making sense, Marcus, and I’m tired.’ She tugged herself free and rolled to
face away from him, suddenly offended at what he had said. ‘It’s like you’re
dismissing what we already have. And I think we’ve got something pretty special.’
She was angry, but again she’d confused her own state of mind and realised what
she felt was fear. What Marcus was saying scared her. He’d been making plans
for when they were captured and separated. She started to cry. He was there,
holding her, soothing her.
‘Birch and
Hazel have been preparing their bond for months, years even.’ He cradled and
pulled her around to face him once more. ‘They want to know that, no matter
what happens to their physical selves, they will always be together
spiritually. They are striving to reach an emotional unity so intense that when
they come, they are each other.’

‘You know I’m
a scientist, right?’ Deborah smiled and poked him, trying to get him to see how
crazy he sounded….
