Hot Shot's Mistake - Gina Azzi

 




Title: Hot Shot's Mistake
Series: Tennessee Thunderbolts #1
Author: Gina Azzi
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Release Date: May 12, 2022


BLURB

Tangling up with my new physical therapist, Mila Lewis, is a mistake. One I can’t seem to stop making.

When I sign with the Tennessee Thunderbolts, I have two goals: prove my injury hasn’t benched my career and get back to New York.

But then, I meet Mila, the enigmatic therapist tasked with rehabbing my shoulder.

With her long ponytail, professional demeanor, and girl-next-door look, Mila is nothing like my usual type. She’s better—a good girl with sad eyes and a tragic past our small-town loves to dissect.

With the entire town up in her business, our budding connection is far from simple. I’m not staying, and Mila will never leave.

Deep down, I know I should walk away and let her find the happily-ever-after she deserves.

But I can’t. Not without showing her that it could be me.

And that may be the biggest mistake of all.

Mr. Brightside - Abby Millsaps

 




Title: Mr. Brightside
Author: Abby Millsaps
Genre: MM Romance
Release Date: May 5, 2022


BLURB

Playboy. Jokester. Uncle Jakey. Bro.

Living in this small town my whole life means everyone knows my name. The one title I never expected to take on?

Husband.

My father’s will is clear: the only way I’ll ever see my inheritance is if I get married. I never cared about the money. I cringe at the thought of letting him manipulate me from the grave.

But now I’m short on time, out of options, and desperate for cash.

Cue the wedding bells.

The only reason I’m moving forward with this crazy idea is because I’ve figured out a way to unlock my inheritance while also raising the middle finger to my father’s legacy.

See, there’s something Joe Whitely’s narrow-minded bigotry never counted on: times have changed. Laws have changed. Getting married doesn’t mean I have to find a wife like he so desperately wanted.

In fact, I’m determined to do the opposite.

I just have to find myself a man, convince him to marry me, and pop my relationship cherry.

Because that’s the catch: I’ve been with plenty of men. And women. But I’ve never been in a committed relationship.

Husband.

I guess I better get used to hearing it, saying it, and figuring out what the hell it means if this plan is going to work.

Mr. Brightside is a full-length standalone MM romance featuring Jake Whitely from the Hampton Hearts Series. It contains content some may find triggering, including offensive language and discussion of attempted SA. It is a dual POV story featuring characters in their mid to late twenties. It ends with an HEA.

Vaping Saved My Lungs

 



For those that are frequent readers of my blog, you already know that in 2015 I was diagnosed with COPD after smoking for 25+ years.  You would also know that I started vaping the moment I was released from the hospital.  I literally drove to a vape shop in my small hometown on my way home from the hospital and knew this was my last chance to kick a horrible habit that destroyed my lungs.  I had tried patches, gum, prescription medication, and even hypnosis!  None of that had helped me stop smoking.  

I'll be honest, I'd seen the vape shop in my town for years and thought it was some stupid fad and people were just trying to rip smokers off.  I was so wrong!  I picked up an e-cigarette, and some e-liquid and that was the last day I smoked a cigarette.  I have been cigarette free for seven years.  Let me tell you what else happened, my oxygen levels which were below eighty when diagnosed increased to the upper 90's three short months later.  My pulmonary function tests which were dismal during my diagnosis of COPD had turned around to those of a non-smoker.  

My diagnosis of COPD was because of Chronic Bronchitis and I haven't had pneumonia or bronchitis since the day I started vaping.  I believe in facts, and not listening to the media, and I'm so glad I took that stance because I'm not sure I'd be alive today if I didn't try vaping.  Nicotine vaping has not caused a single death.  The EVALI which was harming people was caused by people vaping illegal (or legal depending on your state) marijuana.  A fact you can research for yourself because sadly, they aren't making this widespread news.  From my research, I understand that this pot vaping was cut with vitamin E acetate which was making people ill, that's something you'll never find in nicotine vaping.

I do find it very sad that many people who have lung conditions or are just trying to quit smoking aren't being told the truth.  A truth that Public Health England has been giving research on for many, many years.  If you're trying to quit smoking and other pharmaceutical products haven't worked for you, please try vaping.  For more information on real research on vaping, I suggest starting here:  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vaping-in-england-evidence-update-february-2021 

I can't tell you why American Public Health wants people to keep smoking, I have some ideas, but they would just be my opinions.  What I can tell you is that vaping saved my lungs and I don't believe I'd be alive today without it.  Make your own educated decision.

TOC Creations Mystical Color Changing Candle Tutorial

 Mystical Color Changing Candle




What you'll need for this project:


Resin Mold
Heat Source (I use a hot plate)
9 oz jar
Candle Making Kit


This candle-making kit has everything you need to make basic soy candles.  We're going to take it up a notch with this tutorial, so you will also need the items above to create this mystical creation.  




 

 This Resin Mold is Essential for this project



These jars are another essential for this project.  If you don't want to buy the case of 12 find a jar with the same dimensions that hold 9 oz of soy wax.



I use a hot plate for my heat source.  You can do this on the stove with a double boiler if you choose, for me, it's easier with the hot plate.





If this is your first time making candles, I strongly suggest reading through the material in the booklet that comes with the candle-making kit above.  You're going to want a clean workspace and time.  This project requires a few steps.  

  • We're going to start by using the largest of the molds in the pack of mold you purchased.  Take some alcohol and clean the mold well.  
  • Next, we're going to heat our soy wax in the melting pot that came in your kit, stirring occasionally, until it reaches 185 degrees Fahrenheit and then remove it from the heat source.  Crumble a few pieces of the dye chips in your hand (in the color of your choice while remembering this is what color the white candle will change to when burning) and stir into your melted wax for two minutes.  Remember the more dye chips you crumble the darker your color will be.
  • If you choose to use Fragrance oil, you will do this next and mix for two minutes as well.  
  • Allow this wax to cool down to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, and pour it into your resin mold until it reaches the top of the mold.  (This mold should be on a flat surface).  The mold will need to set for 4 hours before moving on to the next step.
  • Next, we are going to clean our glass jar with alcohol and using the wick and sticky tape that came in your kit, place it in the center of that glass jar.  Press down with a pencil.  Use the popsicle stick with a hole in it that came in your kit, to center your wick.
  • We are going to melt four ounces of soy wax the same way we did above.  We will NOT add any color to this wax.  Feel free to add fragrance oil in if you choose.
  • After this has melted down to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, pour the wax into the glass jar and let it set for four hours.
  • Now we can remove our candle from the mold and with the pointed end of the thermometer that came in your kit, place a hole down the center of your unmolded candle.
  • The small layer of wax we placed in the bottom of our jar is going to hide the color mold so it's a surprise when someone burns the candle.  
  • After our bottom layer has cooled for four hours, we will slide our candle from the mold down the wick and center it as best we can.  We need to make sure that the molded candle is not touching any sides of the jar.  
  • Heat up more wax.  Add Fragrance oil at 185 if you so desire and stir for two minutes.  When it cools down to 135 we will pour it over our mold.
  • Be very careful to keep the mold in the center as you fill the jar with wax, and make sure you cover the top of the mold so no color from the mold candles shows through.  Let this set for at least four hours.  
  • Your mystical color candle is complete.  I strongly suggest letting this candle sit for two weeks before lighting it (if you can wait that long).  Trim your wick when ready, and enjoy the mystical creation you've made.
