BeFORE you DRINK tonight

K’Anne Meinel

In January 2009 my niece was killed by a drunk driver. This is in remembrance of ‘one more.’

I think I’ll have one more
What could one more hurt
My impaired judgment tells me that one more can’t hurt
The bartender tried to stop my one more
The bouncer at the door tried to stop my one more
The car didn’t start right away; perhaps it too was trying to stop my one more
The cars that swerved and missed me, perhaps one more will swerve too
No, that one hit me and ended the life of a child who will have no more one mores

I wish I could have one more with you
I remember thinking there would be a lot one mores
One more trip
One more cat
One more laugh
One more smile
One more joke
Just one more
What we…

Not bad, not bad at all!  I’m hoping with everything I have planned for 2015 that this is going to be the best year in a LONG time!  I’ve needed that!  I can’t wait for all the ‘new’ that comes with a new year! I’m looking forward to chatting with many of you, my friends, my fans, and my frenemies!  LOL!  So let’s make 2015 (can you BELIEVE we are using those #’s?) the year that ROCKS, without real ROCKS!

I sincerely hope each and every one of you has a terrific and safe start to the New Year.  Please, please, PLEASE call for a ride if you choose to imbibe!~  As a ‘victim’ of losing my niece to a drunk driver, I don’t want ANYONE to EVER suffer that loss!  The life you SAVE really MIGHT be your OWN!

Please feel free to inbox me on Facebook, Tweet with me on Twitter, or contact me on Linked In, I do enjoy the interaction and feedback from everyone~!  Looking forward to MORE of that this year as I’m planning to attend the GCLS (Golden Crown Literary Society) Convention in New Orleans!  That town may NEVER be the same after myself and my author friends converge on it at the end of July!  The dates are: July 22-26th, 2015.  To find out more about GCLS go here: Golden Crown Literary Society  I really do hope to see you all there and I am bringing books to sign, sell, and I hope you bring the ones you’ve purchased to be signed and discuss my characters, I love that!  It shows they meant something to you even as they meant something to me when I wrote them!  Plus, there will be literally hundreds of other like minded lesbians who read, write, and enjoy the literary works we all do!

All the best to you and yours and let’s have a Rockin’ Good 2015!


Hootenanny 2014 – Day 11

Women and Words


GRACIOUS ME, my partridges in a pear tree! Here we are on Day 11 already! Have you been having the bestest of times EVER? Are you jamming to the songs? Dancing around the room with the elves in spirit? Hanging out with the reindeer? We hope so, because that’s what this is all about. Fellowship and fun.

This place is a total wreck. Every year, we try not to get too uptight about it, but seriously. We can’t find the books with all the tinsel everywhere and the elves strung a bunch of lights all over the reindeer’s antlers, which caused all manner of crazy in the living room. We’ve taken to spiking our own egg nog with things stronger than peppermint, but we’re pretty sure the elves are on to that because the bottle is suspiciously low. Good thing the elves metabolize pretty quickly.

Tucker scored some candy canes the reindeer haven't eaten. Tucker scored some candy canes…

Hootenanny 2014 – Day 5

Check out all the terrific authors! Including…MYSELF!

Women and Words



KIDDING! What, are you nuts? DO NOT EVER STOP us in the Hootenanny world o’ freaky fiesta! (Speaking of…HAPPY HANUKKAH!) Here we are, Day 5, and my stars n’ garters, but the elves have already decorated the reindeer and the neighbor’s dog. Which is fine, because the dog likes the elves and the tinsel they make her wear every year. The neighbors put up with it because the elves bake really good brownies and they’re quite generous with those.

And, of course, the egg nog. Which the elves generally like to make themselves, but sometimes they go out on supply runs for a certain kind of ‘nog, especially if it’s getting late. They prefer to make their batches in the morning, but they keep a stash on hand of ready-made.

(hint: “Frosty the Snowman” [in case it wasn’t really obvious])

Frosty the bookman was a well-read happy…
