Coffee Diary 1-21-17

I’m finally back 🙂 It’s been such a busy first three weeks of 2017. I honestly can’t recall ever being so busy or productive in January. Usually, I’m slow during the winter. This year, I’m enjoying this pace. The writing is flowing, my new job at Passionate Ink is amazing and I could go on and on.

This week, I’d like to mention a few things happening at Passionate Ink before I go into other things. We’re in need of judges for both the preliminary and final round of the #PassionatePlume2017 contest. If you love reading erotica and/or erotic romance and would love to find some new one-click authors, follow this link and sign up. It’s absolutely free <3 

Judging Info 

Authors, the Passionate Plume contest opens on March 1st. so have your HOT reads ready.

We have a workshop that begins in just a few days:

For the Discouraged Writer: Rekindling the Passion in Your Writing
An Audio/Visual Workshop with a Forum Site for discussion.
PRESENTER: Red L. Jameson
January 30 through February 24, 2017 Please note this is a Monday start date.
LENGTH: Four Weeks
$25.00 for Non-Members
$22.50 for RWA Members (10% OFF)
$18.75 for Passionate Ink Members (25% OFF)
Register at https://www.rwa.org/e/in/eid=610

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

When Red heard the advice that discouraged writers should get used to no longer feeling passionate about writing and to just get a hobby, she decided to challenge that. At almost every level of her writing career, she’s had some sort of discouragement. After so many years of it, she decided to shove it where the sun didn’t shine and find the fire in her writing once again. This workshop covers almost every area a writer—from those just starting out to those who have been writing before dinosaurs were love interests—can become discouraged and ways to overcome it. From finishing a manuscript that is kicking and screaming not to be written to strategies for a shy writer to conquer social media, from bouncing back when a publisher rejects your brilliant story to dealing with editors who dump you, from overcoming fear and dealing with envy, this class covers the turbulent business of being an author.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:


While finishing her Master’s Degree in US Military History, Red has had many part-time jobs to help pay bills but mostly to fund her addiction to fiction writing. Yoga instructor and weight management consultant were fun, but it wasn’t until she started proofing for an history journal that she knew true adventure, nearly getting into a back-alley fight over which writing style is the best. Chicago Style, of course. Formatting, graphic designing, then editing came later; although, she missed getting into cat fights with copyeditors about comma placement. Now, she writes her sizzling sexy yet cerebral stories full-time and wants to help other writers who need a hand up in this crazy business of writing.

Passionate Ink members should visit the PI Workshops forum for their discount code.

When the band takes a hiatus, the boys will play…
When Jacen Goodwin’s band, Disaster Transport, crashed in Dallas and ended up at the Nathalia Hotel, he never expected to find his heart’s desire. He wants to stay in his adopted home city, but he loves the roar of the crowd as well as their adoration. Can the star drummer step away from the buzz of fame long enough to grab what he needs with both hands or will the lure of the crowd be too much?
Matt Walker knew from the moment he got involved with Jacen that their relationship was temporary. Jacen’s a celebrity and he holds the position of the sexiest eligible bachelor of the band. Even if Matt saw a future for him and Jacen, the odds aren’t in their favor. But he can hope, right? He’s been head over heels in love with Jacen since the moment they met.
Can these two opposites make a go of their fledgling relationship or will celebrity and the challenges of fame keep them apart?

Now for an excerpt:
©MeganSlayer, 2017, All Rights Reserved
Matt busied himself with straightening the counter space and trying not to watch Jacen. Fuck. How could he not? The man featured in his dreams and had become his favorite spank bank material. He swept his gaze over Jacen. The denim shorts hugged his hips and accentuated the strength in his legs. Jacen rubbed the back of his neck with his fingers and flexed his upper body.
Jesus. Was Jacen trying to turn him on? If so, he’d accomplished his mission. Matt plopped onto the stool and pressed his knees together. Blood rushed to his cock and his mouth watered. Just a few touches. Kisses. He didn’t want much. Really.
“Mother fucker.” Jacen whipped around and held his phone in a white-knuckled grasp as he strode back to the desk. “He’s a piece of shit. Where are those peas?”
Matt offered up the bag. “Whoever it is, I hope you lit into him.” He shut the laptop down, then moved the device to the lower portion of the counter. “Better pick up your key before you forget.” He slid the card across to Jacen. “Have a good night…well, a better one than you’ve had so far.”
“Huh?” Jacen glared at Matt and plunked the bag back onto his bruise. “Are you here all night? I thought Cady hired on people to work the desk so you and her weren’t stuck.”
“She did, but this is my night. I have to earn my keep somehow.” He grinned to hide his displeasure. “I can’t feed my music and running habits without some source of income.”
Jacen tucked his phone into his pocket and lingered at the counter. “Want some company? I came here to work on music, yeah, but that wasn’t the only reason.” He offered up the bag. “I’ve melted this.”
“I’ll stick it back in the freezer. No problem.” He gripped the melting frozen food. “Stick around a moment in case anyone comes in and I’ll put it back.” He left Jacen alone long enough to put the peas in the fridge. He’d probably make them for lunch the next day instead of wasting them. When he returned, Jacen had rounded the counter.
“All good?” Jacen asked.
“I’ve got lunch for tomorrow.” He tensed. “Thanks for holding down the fort.” He expected Jacen to leave, but instead, he crept closer to Matt.
“I didn’t just return for Rory and the music. I came here for you, too.”
“Me?” He frowned. “What?” He had to be hearing Jacen wrong. No way Jacen meant that.
“Uh, yeah. You.”

Coffee Diary 1-4-17

Happy New Year, Friends!

It’s been a while, but I figured it was time to stick to these posts. You know how it goes… Life, holidays, etc. Anyways, hope you’re holidays were awesome. If you’re in my readers’ group, you know you’re on my list to receive some surprise candy in the mail at some point. Many surprises have already been sent out and in the coming weeks, there will be more. 

As for my latest coffee adventure, it all began at my favorite Starbucks on a windy Thursday afternoon…

We headed to Starbucks for a celebratory round of drinks. I’d just found out that Passionate Ink authors had voted me into taking over the role of VP of Communications and Marketing for Chapter #207 of the #RWA. **SCREAMS WITH JOY** So, we walked in around 2 p.m. and the place was packed. Our usual table was being used by someone else, but we found a spot along the wall on the padded bench where the other tables were. I immediately realized those are quite comfy and we’ve since switched our ‘usual table’.

There were people lined up at the bar, the cash register and anywhere they could find somewhere to stand. Heck, even the drive-thru was wrapped around the building to the point that the fitness buffs couldn’t get to their beloved lifting until the parking lot cleared out some.

As we sat there, the baristas worked their butts off to serve everyone who was waiting and being a more-than-regular customer has its perks. When they’d seen us walking through the parking lot, our girls had already began making ours. So, it was just a matter of scanning my little app and grabbing our drinks. In other words, we were seated at the bench and had a bird’s eye view over everything in the place while we sipped our favorite beverages. Usually, I’m prepared with a bowl or a bag of microwave popcorn when drama hits the world of Facebook, but seeing as how Starbucks is fairly calm… Why would I need popcorn there, right? Boy–oh, boy, was I wrong.

After we’d been there for about fifteen minutes, an older gentleman that’s always there came in and he sat with another older  gentleman whom he knows from church. They had their tall coffees with cream and they sat discussing an upcoming sermon and mentioned a few tidbits to each other about a few people they know. Harmless. Quiet. Peaceful coffee time. And then, it happened…

We were sitting ducks. We were prey that a hungry cat was about to have fun with. The thing was…we never saw it coming. In walked a group of people we’ve seen before with other kids, moms and a girl. Normally, she’s very well-behaved and their group is always a quiet (mostly) and respectful group. We all exchanged ‘Hellos’ and turned back to our own conversation as the group made their way to the counter to order. The first three in the group ordered and went on about their business. They sat down on the same bench seat as us, facing the bars and baristas as they waited for their orders to be finished.

And then… The nine year old girl decided she HATED everyone and everything in the whole entire world and wanted EVERYONE in the county to know it. In other words, she let ‘er rip…right there. Refusing to order or remain calm, she flung herself against the counter, knocking the gift cards to the floor before grabbing a bag of chips and trying to rip it open with her snarling mouth. When she heard that one of the orders for her group was ready, she suddenly stopped what she was doing and watched with an intense and eerie calm as one of the parents delivered the tall, vanilla bean frappuccino to one of the teenage boys. Just as I was about to take a drink of my mocha, the girl lunges at the boy’s table, grabs his frappucino and launched it. (Think Punkin’ Chuckin’ style). White, creamy and frozen goodness exploded in a shower of classic syrup blended to perfection while a coating of sugar and ice rained upon the older gentlemen beside us, our bench seat, my cheek, the boy who the drink belonged to and floor. Let me assure you… Just because a ‘tall’ is a ‘small’… Believe me when I say, that puppy went everywhere!

Too shocked to do anything and in disbelief to the point that we almost started laughing. (Because W- T-double-hockey-sticks! We’re in a Starbucks! This doesn’t happen there, right?)

Oh… and it went on. We hopped up to grab some napkins and began cleaning up the mess as the little girl screamed for everyone to “Go away forever!” and that she was “Cold! Hungry! Help! They’re starving me!” as we went through a container of napkins trying to get it cleaned up so the baristas could finish the orders for these people (so they’d leave sooner). I’m a mom. I’m not afraid to clean up a mess and besides, it couldn’t get any worse, right?

Most of the mess was gone. Crisis averted. Ohhhh no, Ms. Merry Maid.

Aside from the screaming at the top of her lungs, she decided to grab one of the chairs and heave it like she was in a WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs match! Okay…so there wasn’t a ladder anywhere in plain sight… THANK GOODNESS… Because after she hurled the chair across the room, breaking a chunk of it and huffing and puffing like Triple H, she lunged for the table where the other kids’ drinks were.

Oh yeah… she was fully prepared to cause as much havoc as she could like she was going for that briefcase of money and no one was stopping her. Luckily, the kids held onto the table, but that only angered the child and she lunged at the ordering counter AGAIN and attempted to grab the barista, demanding she be allowed to order something. Our poor barista… and I mean this in a nice way because we LOVE each of them… but… Bless Her Heart. She was terrified. This nine year old raging child was truly coming for her and our barista looked like a deer in the headlights.

**We laugh now, but in the moment, the entire place went quiet except for that kid. Not even kidding.** 

Our barista, **J**, stood there in shock while said child flopped and flailed all over the counter before flinging herself to the floor… FACE DOWN on the floor (THE FLOOR…My inner germaphobe was fighting the urge to pick her up myself and hand her some sanitizer to clean her face!). There, she proceeded to flop and flail, fuss and cuss up a storm as we all watched. The poor woman taking care of her tried to pick her up and the child screamed “You’re hurting me! Stop touching me!”  The poor woman was exhausted and who could blame her?

Don’t get me wrong… as a mom, this would NOT have been allowed to continue had it been my child. From the first moment of attitude, we’d have left the establishment. But, luckily, I never had to deal with a scene like that one. However, the women and kids that were in this group had no choice but to watch it unfurl or hope it went back out to sea like the Coffee-Raging-Hurricane it was.

After ten more minutes of people stepping over the face-down and flailing child so they could either get to the restroom or order something to drink, the girl stood up and adjusted her coat, patted her hair as if NOTHING had even happened. She politely asked if she could order something and the woman allowed her to do so as **J** stood there in disbelief, confusion and apprehension at even getting close to the cash register again, on guard for fear the child would again become enraged. But, she didn’t.

We weren’t able to hear what she’d ordered, but I swear…I PRAYED they didn’t allow her to order a hot beverage. If that had happened… Holy Hell.

Luckily, she also ordered a frappucino of some kind (to be honest, I couldn’t see what kind because they grabbed the drink and exited the building in a blur without looking back).

There we all sat or stood because the baristas, of course, weren’t sitting. Those of us left standing in the aftermath looked at each other, each waiting to see if the other would smile, laugh or go off. Eyes shifted back and forth, from face to face and no one said a word. As the baristas took a deep breath and exhaled, the rest of us erupted into a fit of laughter. Because… Yes, that had actually happened. No… We didn’t imagine it. And… OMG.

Thirty minutes of pure insanity had unfurled in our quiet refueling place and three minutes… Yes, 3 minutes… after they’d left, a police officer showed up to grab his daily order. Again, we were all left  with nothing to do except stare at each other over the irony of it all.

Aside from my happy celebration being a bit… “Frapped Up”… There’s something comforting in knowing everyone at our Starbucks. Sure, it’s not a local diner, but we don’t have those any longer. There’s a community feel to our favorite coffee shop and who knew there’d be extra excitement tossed in for free? I used to go there just for my coffee, to work, to chat with friends. Now, I go there with a poncho in my pocket and a bag of microwave popcorn in my purse… ready for popping for next time.

And there will be a next time. Wait until you hear about the Love Triangle from last week. They all came into Starbucks at the exact same time. I’ll save that one for the next entry <3

Peace, Love & Coffee <3

XOXOX

Get #MuggedByMadison 2016 #UglyCupContest

It’s that time of year again! The #RedCups are back at Starbucks. Let the holidays begin! That also means it’s time for the 2nd Annual Ugly Christmas Cup contest. What kind of Coffee Queen would I be if I didn’t offer awesome coffee prizes? No book purchase or review required. Just some awesome and crafty fun <3
First, let me remind all of you how this began. Last year, there was a HUGE uproar over the “ugly red cups” that was so insane and went global. So, my idea was to make them resemble ugly (or not) Christmas scenes. Sort of like an ugly sweater contest. Here’s a link to some of last year’s entries and also to the prize. One lucky winner was #MuggedByMadison.
https://www.facebook.com/madisonsevier12/posts/974299769380858

This year, we’re doing it again. Here are the details and the rules:
PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO EACH ONE:
1.) Get your red cup from Starbucks. Even if you only order a sandwich or a cake pop, you can ask them for a cup. They’ll give it to you. Tell them what it’s for if you’d like.
2.) Decorate your cup. Be flashy, be bold, be sweet, be dark. It’s up to YOU. Just have fun with it.
3.) VERY IMPORTANT: Private message me the photo of your cup or email it to me at madisonsevier9 at gmail dot com with “UGLY CUP CONTEST” as the subject.
4.) To get as many votes as possible. You’ll be asked to share and tweet the link using #UglyCupContest #MuggedByMadison @MadisonSevier. You’ll want everyone to see the cups, right?

Disclaimer/Note: If your children are helping you design and decorate the cups…Do NOT let them use the hot glue gun. I’m not responsible for that. Please use caution. This is for fun and I’d hate to see anyone get hurt. If at all possible, use tacky glue or school glue.

**This will be a blind vote. Each photo will be given a number. Voters will “like” or comment on my website @ www.madisonsevier.com with the one they like the best.

ALL photos must be sent privately. (If we aren’t Facebook friends, please friend request me so that I can receive your photo.)

Contest begins: November 12, 2016. Please refrain from posting a status saying which photo is yours. We don’t want a popularity contest. That’s why this will be a blind vote. (Thank you). We want this to be fair for everyone. ENTRIES must be received no later than November 30, 2016. Voting begins December 1, 2016. Contest ends: December 12, 2016 at midnight EST. WINNER will the photo with the most votes. Winner will be notified by email and/or Facebook. WINNER will receive either A.) A Starbucks Christmas mug or Tumblr OR B.) A Starbucks gift card of equal value. Open Internationally. In the event of an international winner, that winner will automatically receive the Starbucks GC. 2nd prize, a Starbucks GC of $10 and 3rd prize, a Starbucks GC of $5.

Paper cups (red cups) only.
This contest is only affiliated with Madison Sevier, Author. Starbucks, Facebook and/or no other third party is affiliated with or responsible for the prize. That is the sole responsibility of Madison Sevier, Author.


HAVE FUN! I can’t wait to see how these new cups inspire your designs.
And I’m so excited to see who gets #MuggedByMadison this year <3

Have Fun and Talk To You Soon!
XOXOXO,
Madison Sevier

#Read2Feed It’s All About Helping Others

picsart_10-21-05-07-00

We all know there are many people who can’t afford a meal on most days and especially during the holiday season. Food banks are really taxed with all of the families and homeless in need during this time. There were times that my family visited food banks/pantries and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.  It’s not easy to let go of your pride when it seems to be the only thing you have left. But–sometimes that’s exactly what you need to do to survive.

Because I cannot end homelessness in this country-though I truly wish I could–I will be donating non-perishable food items for every book I sell from now through December 16, 2016. My hope is to get many things donated in time for Christmas.

As you know, most of my books are priced at 99 cents, so your small purchase is helping others and that makes my heart happy…it should yours too.

If you choose to join me in this #Read2Feed food drive, know you have my absolute appreciation and admiration. I’ll keep you posted as sales come in and update each day. Photos of canned goods plus delivery will be posted on Facebook ♡

Who knows…this might turn into an all year long event.

If you’d like to help me help others, you can find my books at the locations below. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ♡

Coffee Diaries: October 2016

October 2, 2016

As you can see I’ve got a fabulous new logo. Graphics created by AWT Cover Designs and the tagline was created by fellow author and friend, Wendi Zwaduk. Isn’t it beautiful? It truly brings together everything that’s been a part of my publishing swag and career since 2010. It ties it all up nicely in a bright mug with a heart and I’m truly in love with it. Many thanks to both of those ladies for giving me something that I’ve been looking for for years. Mwah!

A Coffee Review:

The new Starbucks Mocha Caffè Lattè kit available at select stores.

Not one of my favorites by a long shot. This is a very sweet–think hot chocolate with a splash of coffee–sweet. My first attempt doesn’t really make me want to try again, but I’ll make it with less of the sweetened mocha mixture and see how it goes.

I also bought a bag of the Chiapas blend from #Starbucks a few weeks ago. Again, not really a favorite of mine. For being a medium roast, I felt it was much too dark for me and I prefer the Kopelani blend above it. Nothing I’ve tried has topped that Kopelani and now I know why it sells out so quickly. I’ll be double or triple stocking up next year. As of now, I still have six bags of it and I will be making it stretch as long as possible.

That’s it for this musing. Hope you’re all enjoying these first days of Fall ♡ Until next time,

XOXO

♡ Madison♡
