Satisfaction by LaRonda Coleman

I asked readers and authors to write a short story or poem to this prompt: His misty black eyes pierced her soul and caused her body to tremble. He began to speak.

*Disclaimer- Mature readers only.

His misty black eyes pierced her soul and caused her body to tremble. Her eyes tracing over the silhouette of his lips. She hardly noticed she was biting her bottom lip. In that moment she felt an oddly familiar sensation breezing down her neckline, following the course of her pulsating veins…hunger! She began to imagine kissing his lips, caressing his frame as he pulled her closer and closer. Returning the kiss, he gently stroked her nipples as they pierced through her blouse. She began to tremble. Her legs became weak and in that moment he led her to the couch slowly lying her down. His fingers gently gliding down to her thighs maneuvering his way to her womanhood. Slowly he inserted his fingers deep inside as she took a long, deep breath. She could no longer contain herself as she reached the peak of orgasm. Tears of pleasure streaming down her cheeks. He slowly begins to kiss her, sliding his tongue between her lips and into her mouth. As they kiss, he penetrates her with his swollen manhood. She whispers, ‘Oh God, thank you. I have so missed this feeling”. Paige! Did you hear me? he asks.

Book Spotlight: F.A.I.T.H. Forsaking All I Trust Him by Regina Price

Which five words best describes F.A.I.T.H. Forsaking All I Trust Him?

Faith, Trust, Hope, Healing, Forgiveness

Can you share one highlight from the book?

Thank God that some children are resilient and can bounce right back from traumatic situations; others suffer from something called Adversed Childhood Experiences (ACEs), potentially traumatic events that can have a negative, lasting effect on a person’s health and well-being. These experiences range from physical, emotional, or sexual abuse to parental divorce, domestic violence, death of a loved one, or the incarceration of a parent or guardian.

What is the purpose of this book?

“P” takes the reader on a F.A.I.T.H. Journey of learning how to keep the faith and trust God even in the middle of traumatic experiences. She reveals how to recognize, confront, and conquer signs and symptoms of past and present trauma, receive the healing you need to fulfill God’s ultimate purpose and plan for your life.

Are there themes that you find turn up again and again in your work? A common thread?

Have Faith in God!

Which character or part of the book was the most fun to write? Which part was the hardest?

“P” is the main character of the book and it was the most fun to share her experiences growing up in the country, with her siblings and cousins. They had “creative fun” making swings from trees using inner tubes, playing games such as Simon Says, 1-2-3 red-light, marbles, and hide-and-go-seek. The hardest part of the book was reliving Ps experience with domestic violence in the home but thank God for His love, healing, and forgiveness.

Can you tell us something that even your most loyal fans may not know about you?

Writing and Public Speaking is not truly a passion for me but a gift and talent from God.

Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

You can be all that God has called you be and do all that God has called you to do if you just believe.

Book Spotlight: A Guide to Dealing with Loss Notes to Our Loved Ones by Shawne Perryman

Descibe your book in 5 words.

1. Insightful

2. Thought provoking

3. Inspirational

4. Meaningful

5. Eye opening

One Highlight: Understanding that there are at least 5 stages in the death process can really help you understand that you are not crazy but going through exactly what you need to in order to heal.

Themes: Not really. This book was quite different than my first book. My first book was about having fun and saving money.

This latest book was dealing with people who are broken after losing a loved one.

Nothing about this project is what I would call fun. It was a hard book to write. A lot of tears were shed writing Notes to our loved ones.

It made me think about my mother who I lost 20 years ago as well as other family members.

Unknown fact: I am a Gold and Silver medal junior Olympian in Tae Kwon Do. A form of martial arts.

I would like readers to know that pain from losing a loved one is real. Never let anyone including other family members tell you to just get over it. Never let anyone tell you there is an expiration date on your pain.

Give yourself all the time you need to heal from this process. Yes, we miss them, and you will never forget but our memories will help us move on one day at a time.

Bio: Shawne Perryman is a mom to one amazing son, an entrepreneur, author, traveler, travel professional and cruise enthusiast.
I love to help others and share my journeys with the world. When I am not doing that I enjoy hanging out with friends and family and going to live concerts.
