Sometimes people can say or do things to hurt others. Sometimes what you do  or say to someone is more then a simple apology can fix, and sometimes the wrong cuts so deep it leaves a permanent scar on our psyche. I have one of those scars today and I’m not sure it will ever completely heal. A lot of you know I am in the midst of a separation. I vowed to always put the kid’s needs before mine and I am determined to do just that, but right at this moment I’m too numb to do much of anything.

It’s amazing looking back how much pain I endured during the relationship. Years of mental and verbal abuse that I thought was normal, but today’s revelation put all the past hurts to shame. Today cut me deeper then I have ever been cut before. A wound so deep I’m not sure I’ll ever recover. It’s something no stitches or band aid can heal and I’m not sure time can either. My soul has been ripped out and stomped on, like so much useless garbage.

Some people in this world are truly evil. Some people have no conscience or remorse or emotion. They don’t care who they have to step on along the way or who they have to hurt to get what they want. They are cold hearted, soul less beings, swimming like sharks in the water and always in search of blood.

It’s hard to be optimistic on a day like today.

I’ve got two big boxes full of books left over from my recent show in Maryland/DC and i wanted to do a big clearance sale but I wanted to do something special too.

I found out something about a friend today and instantly decided to do a donation to Susan G Komen for the cure fund. So from now until November 1st, $2 of every print book purchased from me will be donated to Breast Cancer Research. I’ll gladly autograph or write an inscription on any of the books you purchase too.

Books will be $12 each, that is a huge discount, but you do have to cover shipping. I can do priority or media mail in the US (media mail is much cheaper though slower and not trackable) Just FYI.

I have the following books left. Next to the title is the number of copies I have and a quick note of what genre or pairing if I can. Once those are gone that is it for now. You can email me at b.wylde@yahoo.com to order or to ask any questions. ^_^ My amazon page at:   http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=la_B002BOD6HC_pg_1?rh=n%3A283155%2Cp_82%3AB002BOD6HC&ie=UTF8&qid=1414097403  has descriptions of most of the books except for the ones listed as out of print.

Sometimes when you feel like you are finally getting ahead of the game life comes along and smacks you upside the head with a big ol’ paw and sends you back a week.

I went to the flea market over the weekend. The yard sale two weeks ago did well but I still had a lot of stuff and where I moved to you are restricted to a maximum of two yard sales per year. (Crazy ain’t it. If you have more then 2 a year they want you to get a business license because they consider it a business)

So I went to the flea market to unload all the kids stuff left over and while I was packing up for the day a yellow jacket was on my shirt and when I put my arm down i crushed him up against me and he stung the hell out of me. I am severely allergic so I carry large amounts of Benedryl with me wherever I go. I ran to my van and popped one right away. 5 minutes later I took another because my lips, face, arm and neck were swelling. I went straight home, got violently ill and went to bed.

Sunday morning I woke up covered in a rash and swelling again so I took Benedryl through out the day and stayed in bed with compresses on my hugely swollen arm. By Monday I had this dark red bullseye looking mark from my wrist to my elbow, my arm was almost twice the regular size and it hurt like crazy so I broke down and went to see my doctor. I had developed cellulitis so he decided oral steroids might not work quick enough they should give me a shot plus put me on antibiotics and oral steroids for two weeks. I had the shot (in the hip and painful) but I felt find so I paid my bill and left. Made it to the car where the hot flash hit me. Then i got nauseous, lightheaded and weird feeling. I went back in, flagged down a nurse and promptly passed right out. I came back with no feeling in my face arms or legs, having jerky movements all over while two doctors and three nurses tried to figure out what the hell was going on. This lasted about 30 minutes until all the seizure like motions and muscle jerking totally stopped and i could feel things again. Needless to say the Dr told me I had a horrible reaction to the steroids, not to fill the steroid prescription and make sure i never let anyone give me steroids again. I spent yesterday in bed still feeling yucky but today my arm looks much better. I think I am finally over the lingering effects of the shot and I’m ready to get back to work on things. I’ll post that list of books for sale later on today. Sorry life derailed me.

I have a Christmas story due this weekend so I’m off to work on that first and then some laundry and house cleaning for my mom. Whew.

I’m back from my trip. I actually got back at the crack of dawn on Sunday morning but I slept most of the day away after I got in. I was exhausted. The drive is long and setting up for any type of event is always tiring. Then there was a get together Friday night which kept me out late and we got up early Saturday morning for the all day vending portion of the con. By the time Saturday evening rolled around I think most of us were too tired to attend any night time con parties. DL King and I went out for dinner (We found this sub and pizza place with the BEST FRIES I HAVE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE!!!) Then we found a huge Krispy Kreme store. There are no donut places at all in my back woods town so I HAD to go in and get some to take back home with me. I mean there was no doubt about it right? LOL They had a special going on where if you bought a dozen mixed specialty donuts you got 2 dollars off a glazed dozen. I walked out with two dozen donuts and there are none left at all now. I know i ate half a dozen on the drive home. The sugar rush kept me awake. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. LOL) And the kids devoured the rest along with me over the next day or so.

Sales were down a bit this year. I wonder if it had to do with the event being over a holiday weekend. Traffic was awful both ways and there were a ton of other events going on at the same time.

Anyway, I have a LOT of books left over and I’d like to clear out some of my overstock so I’m going to do the big print book sale one more time. These books are normally between $15 to $18 dollars each and I am selling print copies for $12 each right now until they are all gone. I will happily autograph  copies too. (Signed books make great gifts! :)

I’m going to go through what I have and post a list here tomorrow of what and how many I have of each title. When those are gone that’s it and a few of these titles are out of print so there won’t be any reordering of those. If you want something once you see the list just email me personally at b.wylde@yahoo.com

I’ll be back tomorrow with the list. I’m going to try to finish up a short erotic Christmas story I’ve been working on for an open sub call that ends next week. Wish me luck.

I leave on my trip to Maryland tomorrow and as usual I’m running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off. My last box of books I ordered just arrived. I was beginning to panic that they wouldn’t get here on time. I nearly attacked the UPS man when he pulled into the driveway this evening because I was so happy to see him. LOL

Now I have the van packed and ready to go. I had to have it serviced today too and then pay to have everything wrong with it fixed. Tires rotated, new rear brakes, tie rod end, oil change, etc… Stuff like this always happens to me when I get ready to take a trip out of town. It never fails. I call it my trip curse.One of the kids seems to have come down with a bug too. Ahhh good times. :(

Anyway, I have my books and swag packed. (I have some great goodies to hand out Saturday) Now once I get the kids through with their homework and a huge project they each have due tomorrow and their baths and get them fed supper and into bed, I can pack my clothes and other necessities and then settle down for some much needed rest. I’m leaving as soon as I drop the kids off to school in the morning so i can take my time getting there and maybe browse and window shop some on the way. I also need to find some elements for the kids for their Halloween costumes and maybe a cute costume for me.

I hope to see some of you at the Maryland event. I’m fully stocked on books. For those of you that can’t make it whatever books are left over will be for sale on discount when i get home. I’m trying to make sure I have everything packed. I hate last minute stuff.

It’s been a rough few days. The separation papers have officially been signed so I withdrew back into my cave to hide out for a bit. I licked my wounds and had a bit of a pity party but I’m stopping that right now! It isn’t helpful for anyone, me or the kids.

Now I’m focusing ahead. I’ll be in Maryland this Saturday, Oct. 11th with DL King signing and selling books. For more info on the where and times just email me at b.wylde@yahoo.com  This trip couldn’t come at a better time. I need a few days away and it’s also a chance to make some money. It’s like a fun/business trip and DL always makes me smile. To get an idea of some of the books we’ll probably on hand you can visit our amazon pages. Mine is at:

Beth Wylde amazon – http://www.amazon.com/Beth-Wylde/e/B002BOD6HC/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1412785095&sr=1-2-ent

DL King amazon – http://www.amazon.com/D.L.-King/e/B002BRF172/ref=la_B002BRF172_pg_1?rh=n%3A283155%2Cp_82%3AB002BRF172&ie=UTF8&qid=1412785291

For those in the Maryland/DC area this is a great chance to buy some top notch erotica and have the books personally signed.

I’m going to do some shopping on my way there and back too. It’s Halloween costume time and me and my kids haven’t found anything here in our little backwoods town that we like or we can fit into. I’m hoping the big city will yield better results. Have a great day everyone. I’m off to the grocery store. I’m making tacos for the kids tonight for dinner. ^_^

Ok now that it is official I can let loose with the secret that I’ve been holding in for a little over a week. I’ve been talking with Lee from Desert Palm Press about doing a new collection of lesbian erotica to follow up Women Gone Wylde. I got my contract over the weekend and I’m officially part of the DPP family now. We are looking at a tentative release for the anthology in May 2015 and there is going to be a big contest to give people a chance to come up with the title for the book. The only stipulation is that the title ideas have to use the word Wylde somewhere in them. Stay tuned for more info about the contest. Below is the official post Lee sent out online to everyone about the expanding DPP family. A big congrats to Theresa Whittle for joining up with Desert Palm Press too.

Exciting things happening over at Desert Palm Press

Great things have been happening over at Desert Palm Press. Our family has expanded and we would like to welcome our two new authors,  Theresa Whittle and Beth Wylde.

Yesterday was totally horrid but today turned out pretty nice. My kids got up on time and happy for school, we even got there a few minutes ahead of schedule. I spent the rest of the day packing up the last of my stuff and moving it to my mom’s and then cleaning out one of her sheds and setting up the yard for the huge weekend yard sale I’m having here. That’s one nice thing about not living so far out in the country. When you have yard sales at my mom’s people actually show up. I’m hoping the sale will be hellaciously busy for the next three days. This would be some nice extra income while I keep looking for a new job or either push the writing enough that i can make ends meet off of it. All in all I think I’ve smiled more today then i have in a while and that’s a good thing. ^_^ I’m not sure how much I’ll be smiling when i get up at 5 to hang up the yard sale signs but I’m going to bed in a pretty upbeat mood.

I knew some days during this ordeal would be easier then others, but today has really sucked. The PMS isn’t helping either. My emotions are so close to the surface and I don’t feel like putting on a happy or brave face for the world.  I’ve been strong for the kids but today I fell apart and crying always makes me angry. I don’t know why but it does. Crying makes me feel so weak and mushy and stupid so my reaction was what it always has been. I got mad. Mad at myself, mad at my ex, mad at the world. And you know what. The anger is what got me through the day. That pulsing, seething rage that told me to suck it up and get over it. To pull on my big girl britches, toss my head back and give all the people waiting for me to fail the middle finger. So that’s what I’m focusing on. I’m going to use the anger to push myself.  I’m going to work until I drop to be the best that I can be so that everyone waiting for me to fall on my ass can eat their harsh, nasty words and kiss my butt. It’s harsh and probably not the way I should be approaching things right now, but it’s what I’ve got to work with. I’m going off on a much needed weekend away next weekend to try and find a few days of peace and rest.

It’s Monday. A chilly, rainy, cloudy Monday where I really didn’t want to get up this morning. I hardly slept a wink last night, plagued by some very nasty nightmares that made very little sense and left me uneasy all day. I’m not a morning person on the best of days and today it was all I could do to drag myself and then the kids out of bed and get us all moving.

After the kids were at school I managed to get some more things packed from my previous home and here to my mom’s house, then I took on the beginning of my task for the week. No one will have to rock me to bed tonight.

I love my mom, I really do, but we are a little like oil and water. We don;t always mix. I’m headstrong, I can admit that, so sometimes my personality tends to frustrate others. I’m trying to be better but Rome wasn’t built in a day people. LOL

Anyway, my mom’s house is a bit of a mess. I’m not fussing, it’s just her so she can spread out as much as she wants but now we have to contain some of that clutter for 4 extra people to occupy the same amount of space. I told my mom that if we didn;t start cleaning things up when we did I fully expected to turn on the TV and see her starring in an episode of ‘Hoarders” LOL She didn;t think that was funny. I did.

Anyway, now that I am unemployed I have decided to take on mom’s clutter problem. She gave me permission to ‘have at it’ Today was a lesson in how to handle boxes when you aren’t sure what or who is in them. Mice love old boxes and dark places, fyi.

I’ve done all I can do on that for today but I swear, even after two full trailer loads full to the dump, I don;t feel like i made much progress. Oh well, bit by bit. I’ve found some pretty cool stuff for the big yardsale this weekend though.

On the writing front. I’m waiting for a contract to come before i can make an announcement so just keep an eye out here.

I did have a new release come out in ebook. The book came out as a compilation 2 years ago in print because i owned the print rights to all the individual stories but not the ebook rights. I recently got the last of the rights on the short stories back from the publishers and Women Gone Wylde is officially available in it’s entirety in ebook and print now. You can find it at:

http://www.amazon.com/Women-Gone-Wylde-Beth-ebook/dp/B00NW06QEY/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=&qid=

http://www.excessica.com/books/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=17&products_id=755

http://www.excessica.com/books/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=12

This is a collection of all my favorite short lesbian erotic stories plus two novella length stories. I’m also working on a second compilation and I’ll have some cool contest news about that coming up soon.

The compilation is on sale through Excessica for only 4.99. Same price through Amazon but please do remember authors make better royalties when you purchase direct from the publisher. I understand the allure of doing it through Amazon on your Kindle though so no worries if you have to do it. ^_^

I’m working on a story right now for an upcoming sub call. I’ll post more about that tomorrow. Night everyone.
