I tried the door handles again, but they weren’t budging. I could pick the locks, but that would take time that we didn’t have. These weren’t rusty and on a trunk that was going on eighty years old. The walls were stone, and that was harder to bust through than metal, especially since the doors were on hinges, which would give way faster. Standing back, I took aim and, just as Ralph came racing down the steps, charged into Alex’s door, ramming it with the full brunt of my force. As I did so, it shook and creaked, and I felt something give.

YE OLD MASSIVE YOU GET WHAT YOU GET CONTEST
Posted on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 10 am by

You get what you get present picture

Time for another YGWYG contest. In other words, if you win, you’ll get *something* from me, which could be a book, an ARC from a past book (signed of course), a cool foam board with a cover on it from my promotional stuff, some swag, something that smells good–basically all that stuff I’ve had piling up in my swag/promo basket that I suddenly want to clear out. If you win, you will GET WHAT YOU GET…no complaints, no whining allowed, nope…you’ll win something but it’s going to be a mostly random surprise.

There will be TWENTY winners so hey, sign on up. To enter you must enter in the comments of this blog post:

1. Tell me where you’re from (country–USA, Canada, Germany, etc)–yes, international may enter but you MUST tell me where you are (I don’t send heavy stuff overseas–too pricey).

2. Be over 18 years old and state that you are.

3. Tell me what your favorite flower is! (this has nothing to do with what you’ll win but hey, I always ask a question). If you don’t answer, you don’t win!

4. You must be subscribed to the blog in order to win (be sure to confirm your subscription via the email you will receive–so check your spam filters if you don’t see it after you register. To subscribe to the blog, look to the right on the sidebar and find the Subscribe to Yasmine’s Blog link).

I was wound up. The energy had left me strung on a wire and I realized that I was not only antsy, but also horny. I enjoyed sex and it had been several months since Carter and I broke up. I’d gotten used to it on a regular schedule. Now, the hunger hit me like a fork of the lightning going on outside, straight out of the blue. I stared at Alex. But just then, Chai gently touched me on the shoulder.

A Year of Trees: Week 36
Posted on Sunday, May 10, 2015 at 3 pm by

May 10 tree

There is a street nearby that I absolutely love. Really, it could be any street, there’s nothing really outstanding about it, except for the fact that it is lined with trees. Now this a common sight around here except these are all deciduous trees. And every autumn they blaze into color around the same time. And every spring, they suddenly burst forth with leaves around the same time.

“We still don’t know how the curse is playing into this. Tonya, what do you know about Gypsy curses?” I wiped away the rain that was pouring down my cheeks.

She slowly stood up, wiping her hands on her jeans. “Enough to know they’re nothing to mess around with. The Gypsies have a lot in common with some of the Strega. They take their magic seriously and they do whatever is necessary. There’s a lot of family loyalty in the clans—tribes if you will. You mess with one, you mess with them all. Nathan fucked up pretty badly when he screwed over Terrance Buckland.”
