Life as a Blogger #22: Organization

lifeasblogger

It’s a weekly feature (on Thursday’s). Each week Jessi over at Novel Heartbeat will choose a subject and talk about that subject in her life. The topics will be non-bookish so that you can get to know her on a more personal level! She definitely encourages everyone to participate, too. She wants this to be meme style with a linky for you to add your posts to. She wants to know more about you guys as well!

The only real thing that’s organized in our apartment is my bookshelf.

Yes, you read that correctly, bookSHELF.

One.

shelves

Many centuries ago when there were paperbacks…LOL. Kidding. When I was buying books on the monthly, I had more shelves than this. And they were the crappy kind, too. Shit you buy from, like, Walmart or something.

Then I got my Nook and the books got donated to the public library.

Now, the only bookshelf I have is the one you see above and it mostly now carries publishing/writing-related books. There a few books in there for pleasure–like my collection of SARK books. If you haven’t read her stuff, you need to. So. Colorful. And some chapbooks I got from from various 826National chapters (my inspiration for the type of nonprofit I want to open here).

This shelf–from IKEA, btw–also holds drawers, which is why I got it. As you can see, they hold mostly notebooks, some used, some not. At the moment, my office space is in a loft and it’s a little disorganized at the moment, but for the most part, I like to keep that space as clean as possible.

What about you?

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

She wants this to be meme style with a linky for you to add your posts to. She wants to know more about you guys as well!

Most of the time I’m either on one of two websites: Gmail or my blog.

In that order.

Sad to say, but I check my email several times a day. Little cray-cray.

What about you?

WPS Shawties: Shao

WPS5

This shawtie was inspired by Terrible Minds’ Chuck Wendig’s weekly Flash Fiction Challenge: Four-Part Story (Part One). I’m planning on writing a series with an underlying theme of human-trafficking, and will use a revised version of this scene in Book One. This was inspired by Operation Underground Railroad, a nonprofit organization started by a former CIA/Homeland Security agent, that really does rescue children who’ve been kidnapped and sold into slavery. Check out their website and learn how to become an Abolitionist.

Shao tightened her grip on the blow dryer cord, watching dispassionately and listening to the gargling sounds of life leaving the man’s body. He struggled, clawing at her hands, and he got a sharp knee to the groin for his trouble.

“Ho-ly shit.”

The soft sound of disbelief had Shao snapping her head to the left. Two young men were frozen in place at one end of the hallway. Fuckity-fuck-fuck-fuck, she thought. So much for the hallway being clear. Whipping out her .357, she aimed it at them.

They froze, hands in the air.

“You’re in the cockpit, JD. What happened to watching my back?” she growled into her the tiny microphone near her mouth.

“Oh…uh…”

“We’ve got company,” she interrupted.

Her three other jump team members chimed in with expletives and Shao herself mentally added one in Chinese. The one more in English, to cover all bases.

“Shao…”

“I’ll handle it.”

Letting the man slump to the floor, she kept her eyes glued to the newcomers. She slowly stepped into the middle of the hall, facing them; her four-legged companion, Spartacus, stood sentry behind her near the stairway exit.

Eyes wide and mouths hanging open in shock, Shao knew what they saw: a 5’7” female in skin-tight black from head to toe, a gun holster strapped to her right thigh, a Bowie knife on her left, and a bo staff strapped to her back. The only splashes of color was the red Chinese symbol for safe across the mouth of her balaclava, and her light blue eyes that practically shone like high beams.

The organization she worked for, The Nemesis Group, rescued kidnapped children sold into slavery. Most of their missions were conducted internationally,  and they were starting to do domestic ones, too. She usually assisted with physically training new jump team members.

But not this time.

This mission was personal.

This time, Shao wanted to participate because the situation is always different when it’s someone you know. It just figures that the one time she decides to play a part, it all goes to hell in a hand basket. She just wished it wasn’t taking place under the bright glow of a hallway in a Hollywood hotel frequented by celebrities.

The floor they were on was practically private, a set of three suites usually reserved for the famous. Shao really hoped these two were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, not here to do something illegal.

We were so close, she thought.

Five traffickers in custody and a sixth lying dead a few feet from her (but not on purpose. She was claiming self-defense).

Ten girls, between the ages of ten and eighteen.

Spartacus and another member of her jump team had already guided five to safety.

Five more were waiting for all the clear.

And now here she was, wondering how she was going to quietly get rid of…Shao paused mid-step as she focused more clearly on the young men in front of her.

“Jesus. Fucking. Christ. You cannot be kidding me right now,” she murmured.

“Shao, what’s going on? Are we clear?” came the low demand in her ear.

“Not quite.”

“Do you need an assist? I can send—“

“No, I got it. I can handle…” Wolf Shifter Kid from those Twilight movies and his friend. “…this.”

Out of all the hotels in this damn city, TAYLOR FUCKING LAUTNER had to stroll into this one, right as she was trying to steal ten girls out from under the nose of a group of Colombian businessmen. Any other day, Shao would be fangirling herself silly, despite the age difference, because really? It was Jacob Fucking Black.

Normally, she was all about Team Jacob.

But not today.

Time was of the essence and they needed to move these girls to safety. She narrowed her eyes on Taylor, studying him. If she remembered correctly, he had some martial arts skills.

But he didn’t have her skills.

The kind she’d learned while living at the Shaolin Orphanage and going to that school just outside the Temple. She smiled behind her mask and braced her legs apart.

“Shao…”

“Gimme three minutes,” she said.

“Roger that.”

She inhaled deeply through her nose and released it slowly through her teeth in a barely audible shushing sound.

The adrenaline began to fade.

Inhale. Exhale.

Her heartbeat started to slow down.

Inhale. Exhale.

And there she was, in the center of her Calm.

The exercise, something she’d learned when she was young, had worked wonders for her when she’d been an EOD Specialist in the army. She was glad it worked in this situation as well. Shao took another step forward and Taylor and his friend moved a step back. She raised her gun higher and sharply shook her head once.

Don’t make me chase you down, boy, she thought. I’d enjoy it too much.

They stopped and swallowed so deeply, she could see their Adams Apple bobbing from where she stood.

With her free hand, she slowly raised an index finger over her mouth in the universal signal to be quiet.

Two heads nodded.

“Go, Remy. Go now. Go, go, go,” she clipped out.

Immediately, the door behind her opened and sounds reached her ears: the patter of running feet, hushed, scared voices, Spartacus’ low, friendly bark, clicking nails as he guided the girls down the stairs. Statute still, Shao kept her gun raised and steady on Taylor and his friend. She was in her zone now and could hold the position for hours if necessary.

Suddenly, she felt Spartacus next to her, leaning against her leg, nudging his head underneath her hand. He let out a low chuff and licked her hand. She tapped his head twice with her index finger.

Good boy.

“All clear.” Remy’s deep voice slid through her ears.

Eyes trained on Taylor and his friend, she put her finger over mouth again.

They nodded in understanding.

She motioned with her gun for them to leave and she’d never seen two people disappear so quickly in her life.

Later, in the SUV speeding towards a safety zone, a young girl clung to Shao. While she was glad the ten girls were safe, she couldn’t help but notice that the one girl she was looking for wasn’t among the group.

Where the hell are you, Mei?

Wet Panty Society – A Little Trivia About: James Marsden

He wore lifts for most of his scenes in the X-Men movies, because his character Cyclops is supposed to be 6′ 3″ compared to a 5′ 3″ Wolverine. In actuality, he’s under 6 feet tall, slightly shorter than Famke Janssen (as his love interest, (Jean Grey) and approximately 4 inches inches shorter than Hugh Jackman (who played Wolverine).

But man, he really made those glasses look good, didn’t he?

He’s ready to lead the way

Parker Wilson never thought he’d go from battle-hardened soldier to romance expert, but after his stint in the Rangers, that’s exactly what happened. As the owner of DreamMakers Inc., he helps other men win in the love department, using every resource available to plan the perfect date. When a routine recon turns into an unexpected night of passion, Parker’s mission becomes more personal—and he won’t give up until Lynn Davidson is all his.

She’s more than willing to follow

Lynn is a goner from the moment she lays eyes on the delectable Parker. She’s just ditched her boring almost-boyfriend and is tired of sticking to the straight and narrow. It’s time to walk on the wild side, and what better way than in the arms of the most irresistible man she’s ever met? But when their red-hot affair is threatened, it’ll take a team effort to make their dreams come true.

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
When and where did you buy this ebook? I think this was an email freebie that I got on my Nook on 2-1-13
Did you finish it? Yes
What was your first thought when it ended? I think there should be a company like DreamMakers, Inc in real life. Parker is one of three former Rangers who started a business once they got out of the military. These guys create the ultimate date for clueless men. And by clueless, I mean when a hubby forgets a special occasion and wants to make up for it in a big way; or when a boyfriend wants to impress his girlfriend with a big “special something.” I just thought it was such a cool, innovative, and fun concept because it’s not something you’d think a former Ranger–or any military personnel, for that matter–would get into. Typically, at least in the books, it’s typically some kind of security job. Parker, Jack and Dean just kinda fell into it and it’s working for them. SPOILER ALERT–The one thing I was not expecting was the menage between Lynn, Parker and a member of Parker’s team. I’ve never been a fan of that and was hoping that Lynn wouldn’t be, either. I have to admit that I almost put the book down because I felt a little mislead, like “There was no indication in the synop that this was going to be a menage type of book.” But I powered through it and am really glad I did. Parker is being added to the Book Boyfriend List and I can’t wait to read the other books in this series.
Have you read anything else by Vivian Arend or Elle Kennedy? I’ve read several of Vivian Arend’s books, but only reviewed COPPER KING and TURN IT UP on here. I read one of Elle’s stories in the SEAL OF MY DREAMS anthology, but I don’t remember what it was about. :/ Sorry, Elle.
What will you do now with this ebook? Archive it—Lendable
Is it available today? Yes
What’s the verdict?
