Dean’s List Release Day Fantasies

Woot! I love Release Day! I’ll love this one even more if I manage to avoid jury duty, but that’s a story for another day.

Right now, it’s all about my hero Dean and his bevy of beauties. We all have fantasies. I think I talked about this somewhere…*frown* I feel as though I wrote that line in an interview or a guest blog…oh well. But we do. Like, I keep having this recurring dream that the Wayans brothers will knock on my door (as well as every other lady in the Cabal) and ask if they can make a movie out of our Fondled and Gobbled spoofs. And our stories will be on the big screen in all their messy, hilarious glory. Either that, or we’ll be banned from a dozen countries for being too outrageous and then we’ll become notorious and everyone will want us to write more spoofs and I’d finally be able to hire a pool boy. I don’t have a pool, nor do I plan to have one but I want a pool boy.

Okay, I have more realistic fantasies. I have sexual fantasies, I have rich and famous fantasies, I have Please-let-me-sleep-until-6-in-the-morning fantasies. But the bottom line is I have them. I don’t act on all of them, or many of them, but I have them as does everyone else. Dean and his women act on his fantasies. And theirs. They live them out in vivid, sexy detail and I was just the hapless writer who got it down on paper.

So here’s to Dean and his women *toast* I hope everyone who decides to give this story a chance, enjoys it in the same spirit it was written. And to get us in the mood…here’s a little Ludacris to enjoy while you tell me: What is your fantasy? (It doesn’t have to be sexual or naughty, just something simple.) Don’t forget I’m taking part in THREE, yes three giveaways this week! The What In The World Is Danica Thinking giveaway (win Danica Avet swag), the Big Cocks and Shamrocks Blog Hop (Swag, books and a grand prize!) and the Dean’s List Scavenger Hunt ($50 gift card and a copy of Dean’s List). Stop by to enter!

Book Spotlight On..Me

Well, sort of. I’m actually putting the spotlight on Dean’s List, my upcoming release with Ellora’s Cave. I think I’m more nervous about this book than any other I’ve written. Probably because it’s unlike anything I’ve ever written before. I just hope everyone likes it. Not just men but women as well.

And uh, to help with that, I’m doing a Scavenger Hunt. Woot! With the help of the amazing organizers at Candlelight Book Promotions and their bevvy of hosting sites, we’re holding a fifteen stop hunt. I thought it might be fun to do something different and I’m so not disappointed!

So I guess I need to be getting with the good stuff. I hope y’all enjoy the hunt!

About me (as if you didn’t already know!):

Bio:

Danica Avet was born and raised in the wilds of South Louisiana (that would be somewhere around Houma) where mosquitoes are big enough to carry off small children and there are only two seasons: hot and hotter. With a BA in History, she figured there were enough fry cooks in the world and decided to try her hand at writing.

Danica is the lucky pet of a compulsively needy dog and two cats. The pitter-patter of little feet has been known to make her break out into a cold sweat.

Writing is how she gives the voices in her head a way out. When she isn’t writing, working or contemplating the complexities of the universe, she spends time gathering inspiration from her insane family, reads far more than any sane person would want to, and watches hot burly men chase an oblong ball all over a field.

Interview with Magic Brian

How’s this for impatience? Monday I said I would space the fantasy interview men out a little and I turned around and posted one anyway. I just couldn’t help myself. Sometimes a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do and this week, I had to share Magic Brian with y’all.

Not only is this guy sexy as can be with his muscles and tattoos, but he’s also a Marine, an MMA fighter and charming as hell. I hope y’all enjoy learning more about Magic Brian!

2013-03-12

Danica: How did you become a model?
Brian: I’m not a model just yet.
Danica: And that’s a shame. Not just a shame, but a damn shame. Ladies? Do y’all agree this man needs to be a professional model? Maybe an underwear model? Just a thought…

Danica: What are you doing now?
Brian: I’m a active duty Ssgt in the Marines and I’ve been in for 12 years now. All 12 years I’ve been an infantryman.
Danica: Man. In. Uniform. ’nuff said. See? What else can you say? Really!
Magic Brian Uniform
Danica: What’s one place you’d love to visit and why?
Brian: I love Jamaica, just the whole relax and take things slow is so nice at times and it makes your worries kinda just fade away.
Danica: I’ve noticed everyone wants to go to Jamaica or Costa Rica. I’m seeing a pattern here, y’all.

Danica: What do you have going on right now? Do you have any upcoming appearances? If so, when, where and will there be video? Just joking about that last one. Sort of. Ahem
Brian: I’m mainly focused on my career in MMA and I’ve got my next fight in Jacksonville, Nc on March 16th and yes there will be video and pics to follow.
Danica: *makes a note to go looking for video* Uh, just as a follow-up. Honest!
.facebook_-727216682
Danica: How often do you go to the gym?
Brian: I hit the gym 5 days a week and mainly focus on one muscle group a day.
Danica: I’m not going to say it, but if you can guess what I want to say…I’ll, I don’t know, give something away. Oh! I can give something away! Yes! Um…If you can guess what I really want to say, hit up the rafflecopter at the end of the post to win a Danica Avet shot glass and other swag as soon as they come in.

Danica: What do you think is your best feature?
Brian:I know it sounds cocky but I’d say my charm is my best feature, I’m kids cute at times haha.
Danica: I’m not going to argue with that. He certainly looks as though he has charm…If, you know, you can tell that by drooling all over a computer monitor. It’s that little quirk of the lips…right there.

Magic Brian 4

Danica:What’s your favorite kink? (Yes, sexually).
Brian: I like when a woman can dominate at times, like really just take control. Of prefer it to be random, at the store or just in passing grab me and take the hell over.
Danica: *silence* No seriously. I’m thinking deeply here. About…physics. Yes, physics. And centripetalal force and uh, inertia. An object in motion and all that jazz…hips maybe and uh *shuts up*

Danica: Do you have any funny or embarrassing moments from a photo shoot?
Brian: I’ve only had one shoot done so I’d say no on this one.

Danica: Are you a boob or butt man?
Brian: I’m absolutely a legs and ass man.. I mean that’s what I’m looking at when I see a woman is can she handle me being behind her or not. Titts are ok but I’m more interested in what’s going on lower. Do those squats ladies men love a woman with a full sexy ass!
Danica: I’m not saying a damn thing!
Magic BrianDanica: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done as a model?
Brian: nothing crazy yet.
Danica: Why do I have a feeling if I interviewed him a year or two from now, he’d have to sit back and think over all the crazy things he’s done?

Danica: What’s your favorite sexual position?
Brian: I’m calling it the crab, she’s on her back and I’m sitting up, my legs under hers and hers over mine so I can get deep and really nail her Gspot.
Danica: Whoa, Nelly! And that sound would be the collective “thud” as every woman hits the floor in a dead swoon. And look y’all, he’ll even cook for you after…And yup, there goes the thudding again.

Magic Brian 2

Danica: If you were a superhero, what would your power be? Your weaknesses?
Brian: Super powers would be able to read minds and control them too. Weakness is round circle things around my left finger… Any finger at that.
Danica: I’m nodding sagely. Yes, rings are bad. No, I mean, they’re not bad, bad…just..I’m shutting up again.

Danica: What’s your theme song?
Brian: Crew Love.

Danica: It’s the zombiepocalypse. Are you a survivor or the walking dead?
Brian: Oh I’ll definitely be a survivor.
Danica: I have no doubt…Yowsa.

.facebook_-1664984381

So what do y’all think? Does Magic Brian have a future as a model? What did I want to say in response to his working out? Inquiring minds want to know! (And you can win some swag while you’re at it.) If you’re in North Carolina on Saturday, March 16th, Brian will be competing here: King of Jacksonville 7 so go out and shim some love!

Women Rock

Just in case y’all think I’m entirely anti-female front singers, I’m not. I’ve seen several bands in concert with great female leads and for them, it’s about the music. Throwing tattoo and dark makeup on a woman who can scream doesn’t a good lead make. She has to make you forget about the fact that she looks cute. Because lets face it. Most of the time the lead singers are going to look good in a short skirt. I actually kind of like the same qualities in my male lead singers, but if it’s okay for guys to be biased, I can too.

Anyway, there are a few bands who severely rock and they just so happen to have a female lead singers. Notice I say “They just so happen” because that’s how it should be. It shouldn’t be about what equipment the singer is sporting, but the music they provide. One of my absolute favorites is Straight Line Stitch. I did a workshop at the FF&P Conference, Fantasy on the Bayou in 2012 about music and this is one of the songs I picked because it has power. I mean, I feel this song.

Then there’s the all woman band, Kitty. I remember when this song came out, I was like…there’s no way those are all girls! I saw the video and had to revise that statement. Yes, girls can growl and play every part in a band and still be cool and cute. In a kick-your-ass kind of way.

And if you think I only like rock bands with female leads, I’m throwing this one at you. I like the vocals, I like the beat. I like that it’s a little different from what I normally listen to.

A Small Complaint

I love music. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to y’all. I managed to fit my love of music into a schedule on my blog with What’s Playing Wednesdays. It’s been an essential part of my life for as long as I can remember.

My mom loves to tell stories about me as a child singing every song that came on the radio. Every song. Including the commercial jingles. Not much has changed. I still sing along, but my tastes have changed. *shuffle* Okay, so there are a few commercials I still sing along with, but not as many.

I love nearly all kinds of music, although I gravitate more toward rock and heavy metal.  I just enjoy the intensity of the songs, but that doesn’t mean I scoff at softer bands. I will get teary-eyed listening to Snow Patrol because wow, that songwriting. *sigh* Rap, hip-hop, some country, some pop, classic rock, golden oldies, jazz, blues, alternative, I love it all. But in the end, I would rather listen to screaming guitars and growling vocals.

Which is why the current trend in crappy female-led metal bands pisses me off. Oh sure, I’m all for girl power. I think it’s awesome that the music industry is starting to see that women love to rock out as much as men do. I think it’s a wonderful thing and I’m all for music that supports that. When it’s good. I’m sorry, I’m sure there are some people out there who just love some of the bands that have become popular lately, but all I can say is “are you kidding me?”

When did being female become more important than writing good music? When did having tits and ass become the most vital part to a band’s popularity than good musica ability and some vocal ability? There are very few bands that I’ll listen to these days with a female singer. VERY few. I can count them on one hand. Those are the bands that are about the music. If I can listen to a song and it takes me a while to realize the singer is female because I’m so entranced by the music, by the lyrics, by the sheer power of the song. I shouldn’t wince when the song comes on because it sounds like two cats fighting and screwing in an alley. The screeching-I’m-so-sexy-I-don’t-need-musical-ability of the newer bands turns me off. And that’s probably wrong of me, but there you go.

There are a lot of bands out there who have female singers who make their songs more about femininity than just a walking vagina singing on stage. Those are the groups I’ll listen to because being a woman is secondary to the music. It isn’t the primary aspect. I can respect that because it shows me they’re not just in it to make men go “Oh man, I wouldn’t kick her out of my bed if she hadn’t shaved her legs in five weeks”.

Of course the record companies aren’t catering to me. Although they should. Maybe if they picked bands who had a smidgen of talent and passion for the music instead of the ones that were only a hair off from being bubblegum pop groups, I’d like them better and share them on my blog.

I surely can’t be the only one who’s noticed this, right? Have any y’all realized the same thing? Or am I really just that snobbish about music?

Daylight Savings Time and Men

Those really have nothing to do with each other. My brain is still in bed sleeping the sleep of the innocents. Or not so innocents.

I think y’all liked last week’s interview, right? That’s what it seemed like anyway. Which leads to part of today’s post. It’s fun searching and trying to track down men for the interviews. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy. I have a couple of guys this month but I may not have them every week the way I’d like. To make sure I have enough to go around (I’m cracking up at myself), I’m going to stagger them a little. Maybe post fantasy men every other week.

For instance, next week we have one of the newest Cavemen to join Ellora’s Cave, Austin. Oh yeah, I have a new Caveman debuting right here on Unearthly Musings! After that? Well, I may have a Marine and fighter scheduled. *shivers* He’s something else. Seriously. So y’all don’t want to miss the upcoming Fantasy Men Interviews. And hopefully, that’s whetted your appetite and will have you coming back again and again. *rubs her hands together with a maniacal laugh*

There’s so much coming up really, that it sucks to have this Daylight Savings Time thing dragging me down. My great-nephew arrives on Thursday (yay!), the Big Cocks and Shamrocks Blog Hop starts on Sunday, my Scavenger Hunt for Dean’s List starts a week from today, Dean’s List comes out next Wednesday and then we have Easter right after that! And here I am having to prop my eyes open.

Heck, I had to nearly carry my dog out of bed because in her mind it was 4:30, not 5:30 when I rolled out of bed and flipped on the light. She blinked at me as though to say “Are you out of your mind, woman? It’s too early to go potty.”

The cat, who has to oversee my shower every morning, did not look happy to do so at such an early time. She sat on the counter glaring at me throughout the entire process. I could see her through the shower curtain. I felt like such an inconsiderate pet owner. Why was I up and making noise? Why was I making them get out of bed before they were ready? Didn’t they realize I stayed up later than usual to watch that Vikings show? (Which was really good, by the way.) How could I possibly justify going to bed late and waking up so early?

Well I don’t feel that bad really. Why should I? I’m going to be working all day to make enough money to keep them in good food and litter while they’re going to sleep all day. *mutters* I really need to win the lottery. Or find a rich man to take care of me. Do y’all know any who might be looking for a Cajun woman who prefers jeans to dresses, has a fingernail polish fetish, three pets, writes smut and loves men with beards? No? Me neither.

Happy Daylight Savings Time. Yeah, I’m shuddering at that phrase too. *mutters*
