Monday’s Music: “I’m On Fire”

A couple of weeks ago, I made two playlists to use when my daughter’s at my mom’s house each month and The Husband and I have some one-on-one time. One list, “Sexy,” is all hot, slow music; the other, “Makeout,” is loud and obnoxiously suggestive. I love them both, and so did he!

The first song on my “Sexy” playlist is from The Boss himself. Talk about sexy…

If you have a piece of fiction you want to share (an excerpt or a link) that fits this song or you feel inspired to write something, feel free to leave it in the comments.

Guest Writer Wednesday: Gemma Juliana Interviews Richard Bentley, Hero in Autumn Masquerade

Autumn MasqueradeBy Gemma Juliana

When I arrived at Bentley Hotels International headquarters to interview Richard Bentley, I was ushered to the CEO’s office suite on the penthouse floor. A breathtaking view of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge was visible from the sweeping windows.

GJ: I’d like to know how you came to own such a luxury line of hotels? Are you self-made or did you inherit a fortune?

RB: (he grins) I grew up quite poor, only child of a single mom. When I was nineteen, an old great-uncle I never knew passed away and left me everything he had. It was a nice amount but not enough to make anyone rich. I bought a dilapidated motel on the edge of Las Vegas, did some innovative decorating and promoting, and turned it into a cash cow. That led to my first string of hotels in strategic locations, but the properties weren’t luxurious. When a rock star offered me a staggering sum for the chain, I couldn’t resist. That’s when I started Bentley Hotels International, a luxury hotel chain in the most exotic locations in the world.
