KEEPING THE INSPIRATION GOING

Posted in Uncategorized on October 6, 2017 by Michelle Polaris

So I’m three fourths of the way through the sequel to Bound Odyssey. I’ve promised and posted about it before. If you work on projects in the “slow mode” as I seem to do during this part of my life (well, really in all parts of my life), keeping the momentum and continuity going is quite a challenge. This summer I visited a lovely statue garden in New Jersey, Grounds for Sculpture, and the art was amazing. When I hear live music, or go to art galleries, or other events in the creative realm, my itch to write squirms inside of me. Creativity inspires creativity. And I need it. This weekend I’m visiting the Louisville Photo Biennial. More inspiration. So perhaps there’s hope I’ll get more words down, although I’ve roughly 110K words already. Kristin, Bastion and Gavreal are the names of my characters, although they are able to join Mira, Roman and Jace for their adventures.

Whatever you are doing with your lives, find inspiration wherever you are able to keep that energy alive.

Amazon Links!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 8, 2017 by Michelle Polaris

BOUND ODYSSEY and MAGICIAN’S CHAINS are once again available on Amazon to purchase for Kindle format. I am actively at work on the BOUND ODYSSEY sequel, aka BOUND FREEDOM. In the meantime, you can admire the new covers for the old books while I try to keep my creative juices going for the sequel. Patience, patience, patience my pretties.

Hello Again, Hello

While I took an overlong hiatus from my writing, coping with the unexpected twists and turns of life, my publisher, Ellora’s Cave, closed their doors. As of January 2017, rights returned to all of their authors. I am working on republishing/self-publishing Bound Odyssey and Magician’s Chains. The novels should be available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle in the near future. I’ll keep you posted as the links go live. I still intend to publish the sequel to Bound Odyssey, although I can’t tell you when. Above is the new cover for Bound Odyssey. Below is the new cover for Magician’s Chains.  I hope everyone out there is finding satisfaction in their lives. In whatever way that occurs. Be well lovelies.

Safe, sane and consensual,

Michelle

Gardner’s Syndrome — Knowledge is Power

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on June 20, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

I’m joining the effort to pass on information about a very scary, little known genetic and terminal disease called Gardner’s Syndrome. One very devoted and lovely Ellora’s Cave fan has been devastated by this illness, losing her husband to it and in real danger of losing her children as well. She has asked people read and forward the below information to spread knowledge about this syndrome. Knowledge means money and attention to research and boy is it needed. No matter how horrendous our lives, we as a species need hope. This fan reads erotic romance to escape her reality and remember love, excitement and romance. That in itself is one kind of hope. Let’s give her another by spreading the word. Permission to forward the below is granted.

LIGHT THE NIGHT FOR GS

Gardner’s Syndrome/familial adenomatous polyposis is a chronic, incredibly
painful and terminal disease that approximately 200,000 American men, women and
children endure without hope for a cure, and Americans are not the only ones
affected—it hits every age group, ethnicity, and country on the planet. There is
little to no research being done, little medical knowledge to help the doctors
who deal with it (I was told by a doctor that all he knew of it came from ONE
paragraph from one of his medical textbooks that he more or less memorized to
pass an exam while in med school), and often, by the time the diagnosis is made,
the damage done is far too extensive to hope for much quality of life.

Worse still, the average life span for anyone is 35-40 (meaning age at time of
death, not how long you have after diagnosis); far too frequently, however,
children and teenagers are struck down before they can ever have anything
resembling a life.

There are no celebrities to help publicize the need for help or to educate the
public, nor are there organizations offering support and help to those who
suffer it, or for their families; medical poverty is the norm, along with
guesswork from medical teams and abandonment by families, spouses, and friends.

It’s more than time for a change, it’s time for action. On August 17, 2011, we
are asking that everyone who reads these words join us in lighting the darkness
of ignorance by making luminarias and lining their driveways, walkways, porches
and/or any path that leads to their front door.

Let the world know there is a danger, a nightmare no one knows about, and share
hope with those who have little by lighting their darkness.

I’ll be lighting the first one, and on it will be written my husband’s name and
the date of his death on one side, and on the other, LIGHT THE NIGHT FOR
GARDNER’S SYNDROME.

Please email this to everyone you know; forward it, post it on a blog, print it
up and put it on bulletin boards….but share it. Don’t let one more person die
because the night stayed dark.

Be at peace today everyone. Safe, sane and consensual,

I can’t list the number of ways I am wrong. Can you? Let’s be thankful for this.

Whale Sex!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on February 5, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

You have to visit the 1-800-DOM-blog post with thanks to the lovely Delphine Dryden. Hilarious information about whale penises and the chance to click over and see evidence of a whale threesome. This stuff makes considering a career as a naturalist seem like an entirely new adventure.

Safe, sane and consensual. Even if you’re a whale.

Blogging Duo Dominants

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 3, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

I’m blogging at my 1-800-DOM-help blogspot on the challenge of including two dominant characters in one’s BDSM poly triad love stories. You know, your everday run of the mill problem. I included the YouTube video I posted there below as well.
