Out at the Inn


Who wouldn’t be ‘inspired’ by a photo such as this?  When I first saw the picture I’d been kicking about a lesbian romance novel idea about a character who came across an abandoned house on the Central Coast of California.  This spooky picture helped me in ways you can’t even imagine.  I’m working on it now and hope to finish soon but couldn’t help sharing with everyone my delight in the story! 

When was the last truly POSITIVE thing in your life?

Recently I attended a webinar by my friend Sharron Love and I would like to share it with everyone because its kind of one of those messages that gets lost over time.  You CAN make a DIFFERENCE.  Sometimes you just need to HEAR someone else say it, inspire you, help you, teach you….please take a look!  Whether you are gay, lesbian, straight, or bi…it’s time you made a difference!

I am who I AM!

Today I felt the need to post this, I think it’s self-explanatory:

To my friends, fans, and family here on Facebook.  Another author has decided to “out” me: She wrote: Okay. The suspicions I had were true so I am going to come forward with the names. K’Anne Meinel, who bills herself as a lesbian author, is also SapphicSensual, Quinn Masters Author ( a male identity ), Shadoe Publishing, Q CMasters, BenefitsYouKnowIt and God only knows how many other identities. The publishing company is a sham. She is using multiple personalities to push her work and faking reviews, interviews and more. Please, don’t let yourself get drawn into this and do not make friends with any of the above names. At this point it is questionable if this person is even female…

I’d like to address this.  Yes, I am an author by the name of K’Anne Meinel and I do have another account by the name of Benefits Youknowit for some of my friends and as a way to promote my books when I have been blocked by Facebook.  I also have a page called Sapphic Sensual which I use to post beautiful sensual pictures that I have shared with you all and strangers alike.  I made a fan page for some of my fans to keep up: I also have a publishing company by the name of Shadoe Publishing and a page for it here on FB  I’ve been approached by so many other authors that I started it to help others and make some money (not a lot) at the same time for my efforts on their behalf.  Quinn Masters Author is one of those authors who I was helping with my experiences in self-publishing and is NOT a male identity of my own books.  His writings are unique and far different than my own.  He approached me back in June about helping him and even then I was entertaining the idea of my own publishing company.  I have helped him, plugged him, and endorsed him as any good friend, publisher, and fellow author would.  I’ve advised him on using social media and helped him make his book: The Path Not Chosen a success.  I do not write under a pseudonym or as a male using this name.  I have helped him get interviews from some of the kind people who have also helped me over the years.  Doing some of the same steps that have helped me to publish over 51 works.  I have also republished some of my OWN works under Shadoe Publishing because this makes good business sense as I have new exciting and sensual covers and it looks better to have a publisher behind you on certain works.

Now, I don’t know if this other author is jealous, paranoid, or has an axe to grind with me personally but there are enough people here who I consider friends, who have spoken to me in person via skype, phone, or seen the utube interviews of me in person to realize I am real, I am female, and I’m a genuinely nice lesbian chick who is just trying to use social media to my benefit and make a buck while doing it.  Yes I post a LOT on Facebook, Twitter, my blog etc.  It’s what a good marketer does.  Is it too much?  Probably, a little obsessive behavior on my part.  I’m sorry if this other author feels the need to make a big deal out of this but I have no problem explaining myself here and I believe justifiably so.  So, read all this if you wish, ignore it as a lot will when they see too much (me included) or address it as you see fit but don’t doubt that I am a writer (, don’t think I’m dishonest here as I’ve explained myself, and if you are another author who needs help, hit me up, I’m willing to help you too.  And to this other writer: I have endorsed you, helped you, referred people to YOU as well and REMEMBER karma goes a long way … notice I didn’t name names here.

Sapphic Surfer, Come see WHY it’s been my best selling book to date!

Sapphic Surfer Cover 2Ashley is a Midwestern girl who is enjoying the life in Southern California.  She learns to surf, a lifelong dream that wasn’t possible in Illinois.  Now she meets professional surfer Willow Samuels who becomes a good friend to her. How good isn’t really apparent until she realizes there is a mutual attraction.  Can a virgin such as Ashley cope with the feelings that are building inside her for the famous surfer?  Can a Midwestern girl with all the morals and hang-ups ingrained in her overcome them to actually enter into a Sapphic romance with this woman?

Ashley is conflicted when she realizes she is having feelings for her famous friend Willow.  When Willow makes a pass at her she realizes that her friend is gay and attracted to her, how can she overcome a lifetime of ethics and values that just might destroy the happiness that Willow offers her?

Some REVIEWS of Sapphic Surfer:

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read, September 29, 2011
By Rose
This review is from: Sapphic Surfer (Kindle Edition)
Good piece of literature, and definitely worth the download. I’d love to rant on more about the story… but I’m no spoil sport. Cheers

By Luscious Laura
This review is from: Sapphic Surfer (Kindle Edition)
A well written and enjoyable story about a young girl’s discovery of love where she least expected to find it. The settings are very well described by the author – makes you want to go to California and ride some waves! Would certainly recommend this to anyone, surfer or not!

Technology is Conspiring to annoy me

From the laptop of: K’Anne Meinel, published author, entrepreneur, and all around nice lesbian chick!

Have you ever wondered how much we depend on our technology?  I mean we have smart phones, we have laptops, we even have smart cars.  They do a lot for us and we take it for granted.  I grew up in the 70’s and I thought by now we would be living like the Jetson’s.  Imagine my disappointment that we are not, there are robo vacuum cleaners, there are even robo lawn mowers, but ‘Rosie’ the robot isn’t quite what they had in mind in the cartoon as of yet.  We are still waiting but then if it came about too fast it would be overwhelming.  If you run out of air in your hover car then you really would be screwed, you’d have to (gasp) walk or something.  You could call someone on your ‘smart’ phone to come bring you some air for your hydro-jet vehicle or whatever we expected to have by now.  But seriously, in an age where technology is changing quickly and we come to rely on it heavily it’s amazing how frustrated, angry, or disgusted we become with it when it just doesn’t work.

Recently I have been experiencing difficulty with Skype, I use it every day for business meetings, talking with fans, and seeing my girlfriend who happens to be a Long Distance Relationship.  So it was/is important to me that it works correctly.  When it began to have ‘bugs’ I tolerated it thinking, oh, it’s temporary and will fix itself in no time.  One week later though it hadn’t.  I tried unloading it from the laptop and from the smart phone before reloading.  It worked for about a day and then would still screw up.  I lost my contacts, couldn’t see my girlfriend, and couldn’t get any customer service from Skype because apparently they want you to find the problem that others may be having that might be similar in their forums.  This too proved impossible and annoying.  I even tried making a new account but somewhere despite cleaning my system it hid software and could sense my old screen name and data and the bugs.  So after many attempts to reach Skype I went with another service.

Even more recently I’ve been experiencing problems with Facebook.  Now Facebook is an excellent social medium as is Twitter and the others.  I’m not having trouble with the others.  We have all noticed that Facebook has been tweaking things behind the scenes.  It would be nice if they lived by the idiom: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!  Cause I no longer can post things as often as I do (some might like this) but it freezes up continually when I try to post.  Occasionally it gives me hope when one thing posts but then rips that hope from my chest by freezing up on the next thing I attempt to post, even if it’s the same darn thing I JUST posted!  Facebook has gotten so large they of course have automated responses when you report glitches if you know how to report them.  So nothing but frustration there.

We all know that technology isn’t perfect but isn’t it amazing how we react when it simply doesn’t work right?  When there is a bug on your laptop, malware being secretly down loaded, and other things bombarding your systems constantly.  It’s enough to make a person believe in conspiracy theories.  That’s a good concept for a story, if I could write it, but unfortunately I have to go feed the bugs in my system…
