Testing, Testing, 1-2-3

Okay.  So you’re all sick of my spammy “Buy my new genie book” posts.  I am too.  That’s why today’s post is not about books at all.  I’m doing a product review of one of my Christmas presents.

If you have shiny, straight hair, odds are you might want to skip this.  Today’s review focuses on the Ceramic Hair Straightening Brush.


I have naturally curly hair that goes past my shoulders.  I wish I had stick-straight hair that went down to my butt.  However, that’s never going to happen and I have to come to terms with it.  That doesn’t keep me from desperately trying to tame my frizzy mane.

Which brings us to my worthless Christmas present.  I was 90% sure that this wouldn’t work, so I didn’t buy the really expensive fifty dollar straightener that you see at Wal-mart.  I got the ten dollar version on a Black Friday special.  However, I’m convinced they both work the same.

This is the hair that I was trying to get….


So I opened the box and read the directions, all excited for this new adventure.  I had high hopes with a dash of realism.  I expected the brush to take a long time to heat up, involve complicated directions, and not even go through my hair at all.

I have very tightly coiled curls.  Not fancy waves like a supermodel that just came from the beach.  I have Shirley Temple Ringlets that spring back up into tight coils no matter what gets done to them.  Cute on a six year old, not so much on a grown woman.

But I digress.  This is a “product test” post and not a “complain about years of bad hair” post.

So the directions were very simple: plug it in, turn it on, get straight hair.

I can handle that!  Very impressed with ease of use.

The directions said to wait 3 minutes for the hair brush to get hot.  While I am impatient, I could handle that amount of time.  To my shock and amazement, the temperature display made it to 300 degrees in about 40 seconds.

I can handle that!  Very impressed with the amount of time to heat up.

So I began to run the brush through my hair and had a pretty easy time of it.  No tangles, no rat’s nest, no screaming when the brush got stuck.  Because it didn’t get stuck.

I can handle that!  Very impressed with the combing of the brush through my hair.

If you were expecting me to say that my tresses turned into fantastic supermodel hair that was catwalk ready, I’m sorry.  This story does NOT have a happy ending.

My hair turned into fried out frizz.  Also it started to smell like it was burning.  The smell of burnt hair is not appealing in the least.

In order to give you a visual image….my results were something like this:


If you think in ANY way, shape, or form that’s an exaggeration, I assure you that it is NOT.

In conclusion…

Ceramic Straightening Brush….  Good in theory, not so much in practice.

Please stay tuned for our next product test (one of these days):  THE FIT BIT!

(ok…not a REAL Fit Bit, but the ten dollar generic version).

Have a great day and thanks for reading!


Ungranted Wishes…Now LIVE on Amazon!

My newest creation has entered the literary world!

So of course I have to tell you about it!  I promise to quit using exclamation points…starting now.

My newest release, “Ungranted Wishes,” just went up for sale on Amazon.  In case you’re asking yourself, “What is this new book of which you speak?” I would be happy to tell you.

Ungranted Wishes:  An Erotic Paranormal BBW Comedy Romance


It would be putting it mildly to say that full-figured Cleo Welch was in a funk. Dead end job? Check. Bank account? Running low. Sex life? Non-existent.

Her luck took a turn for the better when she stumbled upon a magic brass pot at a rummage sale. After getting drunk and rubbing things the right way, Cleo found herself in possession of one extremely attractive genie who was very grateful to be released.

What’s a girl to do when a four thousand year old genie is far more interested in satisfying her every desire, rather than granting any of her wishes? Well…she does the genie. That’s a no-brainer!

WARNING: This full length novel contains quite a few explicit sex scenes (including ones involving candy that explodes, a dirty talking detective, and an ancient ritual performed with raspberries). Every scene is absolutely consensual between all parties involved. If you’re looking for a sick, twisted, dark tale – please go elsewhere, you will NOT find it here. All my stories come with a guarantee that you will crack a smile, find a happily-ever-after ending, and never have to deal with an annoying cliffhanger. There’s also no cheating, no billionaires, no bigfoot sightings, and plenty of character backstory (it’s not just a pornfest, I promise!)


This has the usual amount of humor, heart, and steamy scenes that you’ve come to expect from one of my stories.

It was released on January 15, 2017 and it’s currently at the low, low introductory price of 99 cents.

Thanks for giving it a try!
