“The wolf said, “You know, my dear, it isn’t safe for a little girl to walk through these woods alone.” 

James Finn Garner, Politically Correct Bedtime Stories
Hi Goldilocks! Snow White? Oh, she, ummm, is entertaining the seven dwarves at the moment. Have you seen Red Ridinghood?
I want to have her over for lunch.

“Oh Hi Red! Come on in. I’ve been expecting you. I have news I want to share. Have a seat here by the fireplace. Take your shoes off and feel that bear rug with your toes. Makes you want to go out and snuggle a bear doesn’t it? No?”

Can I fix you something to drink after I hang up your red cape? Great, I’ll take that. Ah, you look smashing, Red. You are the personification of the poetry from Holly’s House of Heart. Now, what would you like to drink?

Whoa, you like the good stuff, I see.

 l’Hertier de Jean Fremicourt was Churchill’s favorite brandy as well. You know the old British Bulldog liked to soak in a freestanding cast iron tub while smoking a cigar and partaking of his favorite tipple. I think he lounged in the tub of hot water in case he caught himself on fire with that combustible nature of his. There you go, cheers. Oh yes, I almost forgot, there are fine pastries and confections on the sideboard behind you.

I wanted to tell you, I have made a slight change in the presentation of my current noir Gothic tale about Alexandra and Cezar, the Revenants of old Romania.

In recent days, I’ve discussed with good blogoteer friends, George and Sha’Tara, as well as other dear friends, the benefits of keeping a live document that has the completed chapters of the book, The Agony of Ecstasy. If you would like a bit less distraction while you catch up on the story, or want to reread a part for more understanding of the intricacies so subtly sprinkled in the text, I have provided a link to the document in the menu above.

Just click on the link titled, The Agony of Ecstasy and read what you wish, when you so desire. I do hope it is helpful. And, if you want to savor each scene separately, complete with witty quotes and images, you can start where you like. There is a link at the bottom of each post that takes you to the next scene. Would you like to try it out? Excellent. But first, I have a favor to ask of you, my dear Red Riding Hood.

I need to take a photo to work on developing the cover art for the book. Victoria Ray helped me with the concept. I have this idea about Marius and Dari in one of their moments together who I think will adequately speak to the theme of the book. Of course, I expect the cover will wear out long before the book is read.

Oh, thank you, my dear. If you would please lean across the table here. I’ll take your skirt. There. Okay, I’ve got the camera on timer.”

Hope you enjoyed the chat dear friends. I am away for a couple of weeks and will likely not be able to post another scene until I return. I will try to drop by to read you and enjoy the beautiful writerly things you share. Until then, help your self to the liquor and delectables. Kymber from Boomcha and I like donuts and Oreos, but you may help yourself to whatever you fancy.

    1. You did hear your name and thete was ample supply of donuts and Oreos. I haven’t been able to shake that craving ever since we talked about it. I do think the running story will make it easier to read. Of course, if it gets much longer, I’ll have to add a hyperlinked table of contents for people to jump around with.

        1. Awesome 😎 I may whine to you for advice. We men get man flu symptoms when we get mentally bumfuzzled trying to figure things out. We are great at making rude noises and pounding on things but the delicate and thoughtful work can take us out pretty quick. 😉. Of course, you already knew that.

  1. Your links will keep me entertained until your return…as will your book cover. I will miss the latest installment of your Wolf tale until then…!! Safe travels! ( While you’re gone, I may try soaking in a tub with a cigar and my favorite tipple as I direct my own war…)

    1. Awesomeness in abundance my friend! Add bubbles and take pictures. It will be historic. I actually like the idea a lot. Do a little soakin’ n smokin’. A little tipple or two then time to go spank the handmaid for letting the water get cold.

      1. LOL! If I write anything while you’re gone (Which I will) I will either leave it up or repost upon your return. I may call the next entry: The new Maud’dib awakens…after a comment from Sha’Tara…in tribute to both of you for your inspirational comments…and Frank Herbert, of course…

        1. The Maud’dib is a cool wink to an awesome story concept. I’ll be able to read on my tablet so I won’t miss a beat on the reading but creating a post on my tablet is a little too clunky and prone to severe fits of foul language. So I’ll wait for posting until when I get back.

    1. Perfect! I knew I could count on my good friends. One should always accept the best hospitality offered. Acceptance is fine manners and shows good grace as well. The rewards are many as the bonds of friendship strengthen. Cheers!

        1. I think due to several universal constants, time is inversely proportional to one’s needs for time. So, as one’s needs for time increases available time decreases. Kinda lets you know where you stand in the grand scheme of things. However, when returning warm squeezy hugs, I take all the time I need. 🙂 So, Hugz back atcha Fiery One.

                1. Waaaa haaaa haaaa! You are indeed well schooled on the priorities of life. You will be just fine and I’ll have no worries while away. Oh, and thanks for the laugh and face breaking smiles you give. Big hug Fiery! 🤗
