Late Night Musings #1

#‎latenightmusings‬

If love were to stare me in the face tomorrow, I’m not sure I’d recognize it. I am broken in more ways then I can count. For years I’ve been searching for a love I’m no longer sure exists or is attainable. I want it all… The late night conversations, curling around one another like different parts of the same whole, and being so ingrained in each other’s hearts that they beat as one. A love strong enough to withstand the sands of time. Is that so much to ask for? Have I sinned to the point of becoming undeserving? I feel sorrow deep within me for things I’ve never really had but miss deeply.

I’ve always felt too deeply. I jump in with both feet and try to kick my way to the surface after but I am drowning. When I should be wallowing in the shallow end I’m neck deep in emotions… emotions I should have shielded myself from feeling. How can one love so deeply yet not understand the basic concept of the word? Jealousy stabs at my soul like a thousand needles. The tiny pinpricks consuming me and making me feel ashamed. I am damaged… sometimes I fear it is beyond repair. Man was not meant to walk this world alone. The one that balances the dark within you roams just as lost as you are without them.

Just once I’d like to feel… something. Anything. But then again feeling anything is what led me to this place of in between I currently reside in now. I just want to be held. Comforted in much the same way as a newborn babe… made to feel warm. Safe. Loved. What have I not learned yet that basic human companionship has been denied me for so long? In what ways have I been lacking? I have so much to give and yet I feel empty. My heart cries out for one that I cannot find… maybe will never find in time. I have tossed myself into the fire many times even though I always get burned. One would think my skin had become thick and impenetrable but still the claws of madness are able to get in.

It’s as if I’m always looking through the glass and my happy is just out of reach on the other side. What I wouldn’t give to touch it… even briefly. Real love is hard to find. The feeling of being lost inside another but yet separate. Sharing everything no matter what. What have I done? And how do I right the wrongs I’ve obviously committed?

Also I will be slowing down on my releases…

I went on a rampage a few days ago..and although I’ve calmed down I still stand by everything I said 100%. The only releases this year will be Blood of the Ancient Gods: The Beginning March 8th and Snap Shot this upcoming May. Not sure when anything else will be released. I will finish the Dark Indiscretions Series. The next book’s first draft is done but it won’t be releasing this year. It will be next year. I’ve been busting my ass for the last few years and I’m in the same place I started. So I’m taking a huge step back. I now see why some only release one book a year and I’m okay with it. I have 20+ stories out and available for purchase and I’ve pushed myself to far and stretched myself thin when I shouldn’t have been. So yes I won’t be quitting completely but I will be scaling down tremendously least my rubber band snaps again.

I have also started doing Sinful Saturdays on my Newsletter every Saturday so make sure you check it out! It’s a chapter every Saturday.

Snap Shot.jpg

Title: Snap Shot

Release Date: May 2016

Authors: L.M. Adams and Shakuita Johnson

Cover Designer: Wycked Ink

Synopsis

Laura Mitchell was always the good girl, the reliable girl. The girl you knew would be staying in on Saturday night and could babysit the kids. Then she left home for the big city and her whole life changes.

Cameron Dupree was that change.

Cameron Dupree shared the soul of a wild horse. She was never one to stand still and look pretty. She embraced life and love with a passion and zest most people envied. Which sometimes caused a trail of broken hearts in her wake.

It’s been said when you meet the love of your life, time ceased to exist. Everything happens in slow motion and your heart skips a beat. You witness snap shots of the life you could have together and those moments are almost enough to bring you to your knees.

But one person’s visions of happy-ever-after aren’t the same as the next.

Dear Book World…

For the most part I love the book world…the books, the events, some of the amazing people from PAs, cover artists, fellow authors, and promoters. BUT there are several things I’d like to address at the possibility of sounding like a cold-heartless bitch. But I just have to get the shit off my chest. If you have issues with cussing I suggest you skip this post.

  1. Facebook groups – If I wanted to be added to a fucking group…I’d do it myself. I’ve asked nicely but apparently no one gives AF. So then I started quietly removing myself not only from the group but the friend’s list of the person who added me without permission. And you know what? I still get added to groups I didn’t ask to be added to. How hard is it to post a status saying ‘hey I have a group if interested please add yourself’ or ‘hey Shakuita I have a group you might be interested in do you mind if I add you?’ Simple shit right…apparently not as I still get added to groups without my permission. I hate groups with a passion and I’m in as few of them as humanly possible. It’s rare that I add myself to a group and even rarer that I add people to groups without permission. It’s called common courtesy people…learn it!
  2. While we’re on the subject of groups…if you have a group of 2K+ people and you decide to moderate it…cool that’s your right but for the love of all that’s holy please have more than yourself as an admin. The point to me of groups is to connect with either readers or other authors. If I have a question or sale on Monday but my post isn’t approved til Wednesday how the hell does that help me? It doesn’t that’s how.
  3. Fundraisers, donations, or anything else you want to do to raise money for those in need…this is the one people may think I’m heartless over but IDGAF. You want to know why? Last summer I was a split second away from being homeless, car-less, and just plan about to lose my shit. I was behind and late on a lot of things but no one know about it. I was struggling to find a job and ended up taking one that I could barely work because of my disability but I sucked it up until I could find something else even though they only had me working about two days a week, which in MA is not shit! I had to suck it up and borrow money from a family member twice which I of course had to pay back. I was depressed and stressed for months. Now I’m not saying it’s a bad thing to ask for help but what I’m saying is I can’t help everyone especially when I can’t help myself and when I’m getting bombarded with dozens of requests for book donations, money donations, and tagged in this, that, or the other donation/auction post. It makes me irrationally angry. It’s like being put under a spotlight. If I’ve been invited to the event and decide not to participate don’t then tag me in individual posts. It’s like everyday someone is asking for money for something. We are all struggling for the most part. I help when I can when I want to. And as far as these auctions go the delivery of the prizes leave something to be desired. I did bid on stuff in the past and the service I received has turned me off from doing it again. It’s not my fault you donated a $150 package and started the bidding at $25 and that’s as far as it went. I still except to get $150 worth of service and not the $25 I ended up having to pay out of pocket. If you aren’t going to give the same level of service because the package went for way less than you expected it’s not my problem. Also the other service I won at auction I never even received. The person never responded to my messages and I didn’t see any evidence that they even did as asked. So NO I’m not donating shit else for anyone else unless I personally decide to. Bottom line it’s a shitty thing to do and takes away from the legitimate causes that could use attention but people have been screwed one too many times. Yes I could have gotten with the event coordinator and demanded my money back but that screws over the person the donation was for.

Bottom line I’m over it. So I don’t care who you are from now on…if you had me to a group I will delete you from my friends list. I don’t care how long we’ve known each other and I’m not donating my money to anyone who is running an auction of any kind. There are many assistance programs out there. I get it sometimes shit is hard and yes you need a little help. But I’m just over it. It seems people think authors are rich but I’m not. I’m barely taking care of myself so I can’t be always expected to try to take care of someone else. Maybe if I wasn’t getting notification after notification or had a bad experience I’d be more accepting but that’s not the case. Stop trying to make people feel guilty for not donating their money to someone else. And I’m not writing this to call out one particular person..there are several offenders. It’s not a one time thing…this is constantly all the effing time and I have other things to do with my time like write my next book, homework, or live my life. Sometimes I think the easy accessibility of the internet has made being in the book world harder. For the last two years of being an indie author I think I’ve been the most stressed in my life and I did 8 years of active duty military service and that’s saying something.

On a brighter note, it’s FRIDAY! Enjoy it 🙂

The Beginning-Shakuita Johnson.jpg

Prologue

THURSDAY

“It’s been decided then?” Loki asked.

The dark-haired, blue-eyed devil was the god of mischief and enjoyed his job very well. Loki was always up to this or that but he also had his moments of seriousness. Like now for instances. Changes were a foot and it was all hands on deck.

“Yes, six supernaturals residing in three different bodies. Two in each body,” Eris replied.

Eris, with her long blonde hair and golden eyes that saw everything, was the goddess of chaos and as such got along with Loki immensely. They were always getting into trouble causing havoc but lately things had started to slow down. They weren’t as powerful as they once were.

“I see. How will it be done?” Loki asked.

“Everything that’s human about them will be striped away and in its place only the monsters will remain.”

“Have the girls been chosen?”

“Not yet. That is where you come in. You will find the three humans best suited for the task.”

“Am I to know what creatures we will be creating? Which ones would be paired together? That way I can find proper candidates the first time.”

“Of course. Come, we must find Hecate, Fenrir, and Oberon. They will be the ones infusing the humans with the powers they deem appropriate.”

Eris and Loki went to search Domus, the mythical home for most of the gods, for the three gods that would be preforming the rituals on the human vessels. They would have the necessary details that Loki would need to find the perfect humans for the procedure. Picking the wrong ones could prove fatal and waste precious valuable time. Time that they were no longer sure they had left. Besides the gods were weak and likely to be able to preform the ritual only once so it was best things were done right the first time, as there probably wouldn’t be a second chance. Eris and Loki chatted quietly during their search about day-to-day operations of the remaining gods. Everyone was on edge and had every right to be. Their powers were fading everyday and soon there would be nothing left of them but memories. It was a problem they were desperately trying to avoid and this plan with the human vessels may just be the key. The sooner they found them the better.

***

Hecate looked up from her vanity when Fenrir and Oberon entered her room. Did they not know how to knock? They were the rudest gods she knew.

“Is there a reason you two have barged into my chambers? I could have been naked for all you knew,” Hecate, the goddess of witchcraft, said.

“We had an arranged meeting time so why would we knock? You’re not making any sense,” Fenrir, the god of wolves, growled.

Fenrir was always growling, perhaps it was the beast in him and Oberon was no better.

“Exactly,” Oberon, the god of dragons, huffed. “You should have been waiting expectantly for our arrival.

“The both of you should be checked for brain injuries,” Hecate said.

She turned back around to face her mirror and continued to brush her black hair. The red tips made her hair look as if it were on fire and back in her hay day it served well in scaring the natives. The purple eyes also helped with that particular scheme. Those were certainly the days, back when she was worshiped freely and often. Now, it was a wonder she had the strength to get out of bed in the mornings. All ready many of the gods had faded because no one prayed to them anymore. It was only the handful of witches that kept her going. It was the same for Fenrir and Oberon. People’s obsession with wolves and dragons were the only reason they hadn’t faded out as well. Before she could dwell to heavily on these travesties and her rapidly failing strength Fenrir’s voice broke into her thoughts.

“So what are we going to do about our worshipper problems?” Fenrir asked, getting right to the point of the meeting.

Hecate took in his glowing yellow eyes and gruff but handsome appearance. It was easy to mistake him for one of the wolves he loved so much. Anyone looking at him would be hard pressed not to fall to their knees and submit to his every command. Centuries ago he held command of legions and now only the wolves followed him but there were no battles to be fought. He was graying every year that his worshippers died. He wasn’t as young and vibrant as he once was but he was still just as handsome. It would only take new prayers reaching his ears to bring him back to his old self again.

“I believe I may have an idea. It will not only supply us with more worshippers but it will help us to defeat those gods who wish harm upon us,” Hecate said.

“Are you to tell us this plan, witch?” Oberon asked.

Hecate could see the smoke trails streaming from his nose when he spoke. Just like a dragon. He was constantly growling or roaring one thing or another. Too much time spent in his human form but it was getting harder and harder to change with all the technological advances of the modern world they now lived in. He could no longer fly high above the skies without notice or care. A few decades ago he’d tried and was nearly shot out of the sky. Now he was some odd mix between a dragon and a man, with his black tipped claws on human hands, and fangs longer than even Fenrir’s, and reptilian green eyes that sometimes glittered gold on a stunning human face.

“We will build up an army of supernaturals that will also serve as our worshippers. We will infuse them with the blood of two paranormal beings as well as our own to bond them to us. We will use human vessels to build up our ranks. They will give their gift to others they deem worthy of it by a simple transfer of their blood to the mortal. I will mix the blood of elves and fairies with mine and call my creation the Nymphacris,” Hecate stated.

Hecate watched the faces of Fenrir and Oberon as they thought over what she’d just told them. She could see the wheels turning in their heads and hoped they saw the genius behind her suggestions. It was the only way to guarantee they would have the strength to fight alongside their creations, by also ensuring they were worshipped by those sharing their blood.

“Interesting concept. I believe I can mix my blood with those of vampire and werewolf to create the Sucolupus,” Fenrir said.

“And if I mix my blood with witches and dragons, I can create the Pristis-Incantatrix. And before you object about the witches, you didn’t pick them and not much can be mixed with the blood of a dragon. Also the dragons won’t be able to shift to full dragons but smaller variations of them and the witch blood will help. Lastly, the human vessels we use will have to be very strong to handle such powers in their mortal bodies,” Oberon said.

“I wasn’t going to object to the witches, as I will still get power from them regardless. Now it is decided then. Eris should be arriving shortly with Loki so that we can let him know what we will need him to be on the lookout for in our vessels. We will only get one shot at this. Our powers are but a fraction of what they used to be and not a very big fraction at that. It will take just about all our strength to pull off this feat and it must go smoothly. There can be no mistakes,” Hecate said.

Their meeting was interrupted by a light knock on the door and the entrance of Eris and Loki.

“Good, we were just talking about you two,” Fenrir said.

“Yes, do come in. We don’t have much time and we need to get this done as quickly as possible,” Oberon said.

“What do you know so far of our plans Loki?” Hecate asked.

“Just that you want to create some sort of super soldiers but I’m confused on how it will benefit all of us gods and not just you three,” Loki said.

“I don’t know why you’re worried. There is always someone spreading mischief and chaos around,” Hecate said.

“True but they aren’t praying and worshipping Eris or me,” Loki said.

“We will ensure your survival for your assistance in this matter,” Oberon promised.

“Can we get that in writing?” Eris asked.

“Don’t you trust us?” Fenrir asked.

“Not even a little bit,” Eris said sweetly.

“Fine, we will negotiate a contract but for now we need to discuss what we are looking for,” Hecate said.

“I’m all ears and while I’m out looking for the perfect vessels, the three of you can draft a contract. I’ll look over it as will Eris and then I will tell you whom I’ve found. Sound fair?” Loki asked.

Hecate huddled in a small circle with Fenrir and Oberon and they discussed Loki and Eris’s terms. They seemed reasonable for now so they were in agreement.

“We agree. Now can we get on with it? We are running out of time,” Hecate said.

“I’m ready when you are. I need to know what you’re looking for in each of your vessels so I can procure the right ones,” Loki said.

“Yes, of course. I will start with my vessel. She must be slim and slight but also strong of will. Exceptionally beautiful and full of light and have features that could be confused with either elves or fairies. She must have an airy feel about her. I don’t know how else to explain it. The vessels must inspire loyalty and cunning,” Hecate said.

“I think that is enough information for me to go by. Who’s next?” Loki asked.

“My vessel must also be a she and one that has a darkness in her that most of the world would never know just by looking at her. She must be mysterious, quick, and lithe in build. The air around her must be charged and dangerous. Pretty much the opposite of what Hecate wants in a vessel,” Fenrir said.

“Okay, Oberon it’s your turn and then I’ll be off.”

“My vessel must have the art of seduction down but also the eyes of a predator. She will be thick-skinned and vibrant but also capable of great violence when pushed. She needs to be a natural-born leader or as Fenrir says an alpha of the pack but she also needs to be able to relinquish control sometimes and follow another best suited for the task,” Oberon said.

Loki thought over all the descriptions he was given and decided the best place to narrow down the search was to go to one of the human libraries and look into older news articles. A teen or young college student would be the best choice as they are more likely to survive the transformation to an entirely new being. He would have to tread carefully in his search so he wouldn’t draw too much attention to himself. He also didn’t want girls who were surrounded by the masses.

The more they blended instead of stood out would be a plus. There were a lot of pretty girls that didn’t have a harlem of people following their every moves. If he was being honestly with himself he was surprised the older gods trusted him with this task instead of going out and finding these vessels themselves. They did after all have enough power to teleport to earth and glamour their appearances. However, it wasn’t that sure about Oberon who was more beast than man. No point in questioning it, he was picked and he’d do the job to the best of his abilities.

“I will return as soon as possible. No less than a day or two. I know the perfect place to start,” Loki said.

He teleported out as soon as the words left his mouth to what the humans referred to as The United States of America in the center of the state of Maryland. Now to find a proper library and begin what could possibly be a longer search then he expected.

Synopsis

**First appeared in the anthology Untamed and Unleashed Paranormal Twists Anthology**

***No parts have been changed…if you purchased the anthology then you already have this story and don’t have to purchase it again unless you want to***

Aubrey Jacobs, child genius, and aspiring lawyer, came from a very wealth family in Boston, MA. She had the perfect life and she believed in justice at all costs. On the way to her dorm room after another all-nighter spent in the library, she witnesses the murder of a seemingly random college kid. With her thirst for justice she contacts the police and tells them everything she saw and heard. Unknowingly to her, she just happened to witnesses an underground rivalry not many know about.
