Happy Weekend lovely people!

Appreciation is always such a beautiful thing to get but at times, when it comes in unexpected ways, it is even more delightful. Today I got a mention by JupiterGrant for the SoSS post and that really touched me.
Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart… and I hope you all will enjoy the very beautiful work on this blog.

Happy reading!

Jupiter's Lair

Welcome to the weekend, lovely people. I’ve enjoyed reading some fantastic content this week, as well as having a bit of a Netflix binge (the new series of “American Horror Story”, and “Marianne”. Both very creepy, so I count myself terribly brave for not having resorted to sleeping with the lights on! 😨)

And, speaking of creepy, (nice segueway, huh?) my new ebook “A Horny Halloween: Six Smutty Stories for the Samhain Season” is out on October 1st, and available to preorder now. Six all new sexy horror fiction stories written especially for the spooky season.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend, whatever you’re up to. And happy reading.

Love, Jupiter x 🌺

POEMITAS: A book of short poems, a celebration of my journey online

DOWNLOAD POEMITAS before you read the story behind it. It is five years since I came online! Five long years... five short years... and it has not been all poetry.

Let’s have an ‘AHA MOMENT’- Build A New Word
