I Wanna Ride: Happy Thorsday

I haven’t posted in a while. Been busy with edits. Just thought I’d do a quick post of a pic I found on Facebook in honor of Thorsday.

Okay, I’ll stop now.

How about you? Do you wanna ride the thunder–from down under–and let him put his hammer down? ūüėČ

And here’s a bonus Thor pic!

My New Motorcycle, Named for my Vampire, Bastian

I traded in my 2006 V Star for this brand new V Star 1300 Tourer right before Easter. I had to wait these last few weeks for the accessories I ordered to come in. Now here HE is, all decked out with his new parts: fancier handgrips, crash bar, passenger floorboards, and extra lights in front. There’s still a lot I want to add to him, but this will do for now.

And yes, he is named after the vampire, Bastian, in the first book I ever published, Nothing Lasts Forever. Although he is named for Bastian, he is actually the motorcycle the hero, Johnathan, in my upcoming novel, Night Therapy, rides. But don’t tell Johnathan because he hates Bastian–for a very good reason. ūüėČ

3 1 2So what do you think of him? And yes, this is a him. My husband told me since he’s mine, he can be a him.

For more information on the books that inspired his name, and for purchase links, check out my Nocturnal Surrender Series website.

In case you haven’t seen what Bastian and Johnathan look like, here you go…

#alexoloughlin gets new bike c/o Cro Customs

That was the original post, now it’s my turn. He looks so happy with his new bike. Gotta love him. Granted, you couldn’t do it on this bike since there’s no room for a passenger, but can’t you just imagine what it would feel like to slide in behind him and hold onto him while he takes you for a ride? I’d let him¬†use my motorcycle if he doesn’t have one with room for a passenger.

As always, be sure to check out the H50BAMF site with the link above the pics for more of these great posts.

Trying Something New

I’ve decided to–as the title of this post suggests–try something new. I’ve done the whole blog thing before, but I never truly enjoyed it so I stopped. It was mostly because I had no idea what to blog about. I streamlined everything, got rid of my regular blog, and–until today–only blogged on my official website, and then only about updates on my books. I still intend to do that for people who want those updates, but I think I’m ready to expand into more personal blogging, too. And now I¬†feel like¬†I have something to say since I’ve been at this whole writing thing for a while–and have started¬†publishing my books.

This has been a year of firsts for me, from buying my first motorcylce to publishing my first book. Problem was, the whole motorcycle thing didn’t work out as good as the book thing.

I had no idea how to ride, and was determined to learn, but I really don’t think I’m coordinated enough. I ended up losing my balance, dropping my beautiful bike, and breaking my foot. Needless to say, I’m content being a passenger–for now.

Here’s a picture of my baby. My husband has named her Bitch, but I’m okay with that. He says she’s a rough ride and beats him up so that’s why she got the name.

Bitch: 2006 Yamaha V Star Classic: AKA, My Baby

Bitch: 2006 Yamaha V Star Classic: AKA, My Baby

Even though I missed out on the latter half of the summer due to my broken foot, I’m glad I tried. Yes, trying something new is sometimes scary–and possibly dangerous–but I’d rather not wonder what if when I look back years from now. Instead, I’ll be laughing at myself for lying there on the¬†pavement in pain, asking my husband, “Is the bike okay?”

As for publishing my first book. Like I said, that went much smoother than the whole bike thing, but I think I’ll save that for my next post.

So has anyone else had any firsts this year to share? Anyone else do something crazy like I did with my motorcycle?

And does anyone know if¬†motorcycles are¬†like cars and referred to as female? Or is that just because it’s usually guys saying it? I thought my bike was a male, but maybe not. I mean, it was between my… Never mind.
