An Open Letter to Ashley Purdy

I’m going to preface this by saying – I have no idea what to say about this. I do not know the correct words to “make it all better.” I’m honestly not sure anyone does. Despite my complete inability to write something which may stand out in among the sea of good wishes from the thousands of fans, I’m at least going to try.

First, I’m going to say I support you, and your decision. And if you had told this to me in person, I’d give you a big ‘ol bear hug and say, “It’s all going to work out, Ash, and I’ll always support you.”

Secondly, I want you to know that I not only support you, but my inbox in all my social media and my email is always open if you need an ear to listen, want to vent, or just need someone who will nod and say, “I get it.”

Because – I get it.

I don’t want to go into the reasons why I get it, because I don’t want to make this about me. It’s about you, and what you need, what you want, and what works for you. We’ve all been down the dark abyss at some point, some of us further down into the darkness than others. We’ve all stood at a crossroads at some point in time, wondering which path to take. Some of us will get it more than others, but that’s okay. Whatever your reasons may be, whatever you may need or have decided – I support you. And I’m here, if you happen to need a shoulder, or an ear, a supporter, or cheerleader, or even a friend. No strings attached, because that’s not how I operate. Creatives have to stick together, have to build each other up, and I’m all about community, and friendship.

I guess what I’m trying to say is – as long as you are happy, or at least on the road to finding some happiness, then that’s all that really matters. And, if by some miracle you should ever happen to want to take a chance on the crazy writer who tends to be a bit – um, weird – then I’ve always got a spare ear or two which will gladly listen to whatever you would like to talk about – no strings attached.

So, I wish you the best of luck, Ash. Whatever your road ahead may hold, I wish you nothing but continued success and all the happiness in the world.

XOXO

Nikki

My Thoughts On … The Buff Male Bod

My thoughts on ...

 

Maybe I’ve become immune to all the ripped abs and tight tooshies slathered all over my FB newsfeed by fellow romance authors, or maybe I’m just secretly gay, but to be honest, the sight of a buff, muscled and ripped male bod has never really revved my engine that much. I much prefer a slender young man with long hair sporting ripped leather pants and looking like a Marilyn Manson concert reject than I had a muscled cowboy, firefighter, or police officer. Nothing will give me whiplash faster than an eyeliner wearing, lipstick toting musician with wild hair, leather bracelets, tattoos, and an emo attitude. Some women like to go to rodeos to gawk at the riders. My playground is Warped Tour where you can’t tell the musicians from the concert goers and it’s a proverbial potluck free-for-all where anything over legal age is food for the cougars. So if I happen to be at a BVB concert and you are a cute young thing with long hair, a tight ass, total tattooed sleeves, and that bulge in your pocket is more thanks to your tube of mascara than your happiness at seeing me, and BONUS if you happen to be a member of a band, then watch out cause I just might fan girl ALL. OVER. YOU. Did that sound dirty? Good #eroticawriterproblems

Seriously, if I saw this out walking around at a concert, I’d be like those rate suckers from the Progressive commercials. I’d latch on to that and NEVER. LET. GO. Cause, daYUM.
