Frankie – Secondary Character <3

I’m going to confess loving one of my secondary characters in Silver Scars, and from some of the reviews the book has gotten, I’m not the only one. I don’t love Frankie as much as Gilbert or Keith, but it’s close. Here’s a little taste of the kind of friend Frankie is to Gil in Silver Scars. You’re my oldest friend. I couldn’t leave you to deal with this shit alone. It might’ve been what you thought you wanted, but that’s utter bullshit. You need friends. You need people to love you, especially when you shove them away. Frankie and Gil have been friends since their preteen years and they’ve…


Coloring While Adulting

I remember my mom taking me to the local store, buying me that box of 64 Crayola crayons, holding the box in my lap on our drive home, and cracking open that lid. I remember the smell. It was distinctive, and no, Prang or Roseart crayons didn’t smell the same. Usually the box of 64 crayons was purchased because it was on my school supply list. If I wanted to color at home, there was a box shoved in a cabinet next to an old soup can decorated with macaroni and glitter that held pencils. Some of the crayons were broken or the paper was peeled off so I had…


Surgical Scars

I’m very much a suffer in silence sort of person, choosing to redirect my focus on anything but my struggles. Occasionally my body demands to be heard. It’s a Friday evening, the time when a lot of people are considering what to do for the night. Go out? Rent a film? Go to bed? I’m just waking up from a nap that was essentially forced on me after I had a seizure a few hours ago. When I woke to take my evening dose of medication, I had another one on the way to my bottle of pills. I forced myself to not go back to sleep after that. For…


Edits and Erotica and Branding, oh …

There is so much news to share, including some exciting new projects.


I Guess I’m Sparkling….

My kid has called me Twilight Sparkle for years….


Outside the Margins – Posy on Prism …

I write a monthly column over at Prism Book Alliance® now, which is why I’ve been fairly silent over here. It’s calle Outside the Margins. I’m also editing 2 stories and writing 2 more, so life has been crazy busy with that, not to mention homeschooling. So if you miss my pervy banter, you can find me here. Come visit.  


I’m Still Standing

I’ve taken on a new challenge, completely self-imposed. I seem to have a greater chance of succeeding on those rather than external challenges. Writing is a notoriously sedentary job. All the hours getting stories down on the page, reading and editing, and then doing the promotion to sell those stories takes a toll. My upper back (just above bra strap land) has been crying out in pain for months. When that happens I get headaches, my arms go oddly numb, and every so often I get light headed. When I had to abandon my editing to care for my mother post-surgery, I got off my butt and walked around a…


Positive Sexual Connection

New! I’ve started a new blog over on Tumblr. I already have one where I essentially celebrate the male form and love between men, but this new one is different. For regular readers, you know I’m bisexual, so I run across a lot of images and information I don’t share here or on my Posy Roberts Tumblr. It’s not the correct audience. But lately I’ve been discovering so much that I felt I needed to start something new, and I love the share-happy Tumblr format. I’ve run across several sites on sexual positivity over the years. Most are intended for women. Some are there for the GLBTQ community too, but…


Bookstore Closed, Era Ended ~ Posy Roberts: …

I’m over at Prism Book Alliance today for my monthly Outside the Margins column. I share a few stories about the most wonderful bookstore I’ve ever been in. It was a castle! It closed it’s doors for good as 2014 came to a close. There are photos of the castle bookstore on my Instagram as well.

Get Out of the Kitchen

The whole “let’s quit performing all weddings at courthouses because a few clerks don’t want to perform same-sex weddings” debacle in Florida is crazy to me. It’s adults having temper tantrums because they’re being asked to perform a duty for their job. I certainly have moral dilemmas in my own job, but I still have to perform the duties I’ve been hired to do. For instance, I think No Child Left Behind is doing far more harm than good in our country. Teachers are being judged based on how their students perform. That would be fine and dandy if kids all started off on a level playing field: had the…
