It gives me great pleasure to welcome Wendi Zwaduk back to my blog.
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
by Wendi Zwaduk
No, not Christmas, although I do enjoy Christmas. No, it’s back to school time! I want to thank Jessica for having me here. I love guesting at the different blogs and Jessica is such a sweet host, I had to come back.
Now about that time of the year I love so much. Back to School time. I love it, but not for the reasons you might think. Of course, I do enjoy when the small person goes back and the routine I love so much is restored. I get more done on the peripheral side. The EDJ doesn’t seem to take as long and there aren’t the vacations that can mess up the flow. I love a good vacation, but when you have a routine, it can be a pain.
The reason I love this time of the year is the shopping. All those boxes and displays of back to school items. I’m a sucker for the school supply aisle. The notebooks, pencil cases, papers, and the folders. It’s all my favorite. It’s also a means for saving money. Not for the supplies I need for the small person, although that does help with the budget. No, it’s a means to save me money on my things. I collect notebooks like kids used to collect baseball cards. Each one is a place to jot down notes on my stories and if they look cool, all the better.
There’s a thrill in finding just the right notebook, too. One that’s got an interesting cover, the lines are the right space apart, there’s little spaces for notations on the pages…oh yeah, I look at all that stuff.
Last year I had the ultimate score. I love the Beatles. They are one of my favorite bands of all time. Last year, amongst the teenage idols and cartoon characters, there were hardback notebooks graced by the Beatles. I snapped up every one of the different cover images they had. They looked great and no one seemed to question what I was writing in them. That is until I took it to a craft show. The snicker of it was that particular notebook I had the notes for a particularly raunchy story. I left the notebook on the table in the back where I kept my drink, the mints and pencils for remarking prices. Apparently it was the prime location for people to snap it up in case it was the latest book about the Fab Four. I still snicker. If anyone found the raunchy parts, they never said so.
But this is the fun of the season. This year the score is a notebook with different locations, Paris, Rome, etc, on them. I’ve already used two. Grin.
How about you? What is your favorite time of the year? Why? I’d love to know.
Here’s a little information on my portion of the Switch Anthology,
available from Total-E-Bound:
She’ll be his salvation if he’s willing to switch.
Being stressed out sucks, especially when you’re in charge of a team. Just ask Eric Trask. The pit crew of the Fifty—Four truck team depends on him. The stress of keeping things running smoothly is wearing Eric down. What’s a guy to do to get a little relief?
Janine Walters knows exactly what Eric’s up against. She’s the public relations face of the team. Pressure is all a part of the job. Her outlet for stress just happens to be wielding a crop.
Can Eric embrace her methods for stress relief or will her suggestion tear their fragile relationship apart?
Reader Advisory: This book contains the use of a crop, spanking, a little bondage, a little pegging, some toys and a woman who knows how to use a strap on to pleasure her man.
