[Adult] The baby is asleep, but this couple is not. Well, it’s Winter. Is anyone cold? This part is rather intense and I’m told one had to roll in the snow to cool off. ❤ Here is the link to chapter 37:
So, while I was channeling the happy couple I was starting to realize the chapter was getting too long. I mainly get troubled by this because the longer a chapter is the harder it is for people who enjoy it to express what it was they enjoyed, as far as certain details go. It’s fun and very nice to get, “wonderful job”, but I’m digging the characters and definitely am curious at what brought smiles to peoples faces or made their hearts fill with joy.
As I was working this out I posted on facebook:
“ARG! Over 4,000 words of utter bliss! I have never channeled anyone who was THIS romantic. (In my original material it was only 1 century, not 2 and no previous meet-ups.) It’s that long and they STILL haven’t made it all that adult. Barnabas is too busy trembling in utter happiness. He’s got Josette AND Sarah back now and can’t stop describing it all. Why not explode into a flock of silvery bats and reform to let it out of your system, old man?! Just get it over with. *sigh* I think this is going to be another two-parter.”
A beloved and fellow writer saw this black and white photo in my post and confessed, “OK, this picture is just so ultra-romantic it’s absurd (in the best possible sense!). It definitely goes well with what you’re saying about Barnabas turning into a flock of silvery bats!”
I responded, “LOL! Thanks. I think he’s finally settled down from believing if he touches her she’s going to disappear to just, “Good Heavens, I can touch her! Damn!”
Above is the link to chapter 36 of “Margaret Josette Dupres” in which baby Sarah is adored, caressed, admired, and eventually placed in her cradle so her parents can “get busy”. Still, the psychological blow-aways come in to haunt and mesmerize Barnabas. However, Maggie, after her own reincarnation, and giving birth to a reincarnation, has to explain she’s finally accepted how weird Collinsport actually is. Being a half-light vampire can’t be such a massive destruction on the soul. Besides, she hasn’t had blood in over 9 months and is starved.
So, this is [ADULT]… at least… I *think* it might be. I’m not even sure. All that adoration and so far it’s mainly description and sensual touching. Maybe it’s PG, or PG-13.
Ah, I see I have a couple new followers. *BIG GRIN* Not sure what that means but I think it means support. I’m currently excavating the T-rated version of this… that oddly allows more violence than intimate encounters of the more loving variety. I can get that up at some point after this one is done. But if you’re curious about what my very first published in print book may be and you’re groovy with drop-down menus to switch chapters… here it is:
I have some lovely reviews/commentary. The ones I adore are the helpful style that either treat the novel per chapter as if watching the original program, or giving insight as to what was enjoyed. Of course, this version of the original program would likely only air on stations like Showtime, Playboy or perhaps the wee hours of HBO. I’m thinking more of a meld, really. Because I generally do not enjoy pornography I had to get around certain shynesses of my own when this couple took me over to arrange a rough draft of what they would experience after almost 200 years of repressed romance.
I managed to steer clear of any vulgar word usage to deal with that aspect.
This time around it blended beautifully for me into a tale of ups and downs. This is the end result of our hope and horizon to The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows. (I express that in the summary.)
And yes, it has healed our marriage as mentioned in my previous journal post here. I truly believe I have never put together anything so good in my entire life… but I still blush. These two took me over, as well as Willie Loomis. They did.
The only flaws I’m looking for are possible needs for descriptions in setting, costume and physical persons. Otherwise, enjoyment, pleasure, “Thanks for the lovely evening”… words to that effect would be marvelous. (And directly here, on facebook, or via email is fine if that is preferred.)
It currently has 32 Chapters, including an authors’ note as to how it all came into being. It’s all in first person but that first person switches per chapter and I have been cautious to clue-in who is speaking in the first paragraph of each. Still, one must sip and not rush through it. I was told it’s like a fine wine or cognac; to be taken slowly. As it is partially inspired by the writings of Vladimir Nabokov I suppose it would have to be.
Strangely enough they are vampires, but less sun-fearing and no sparkles. Also they do have sex, and yes, they are having a baby. But just one… a very important one. ❤
