Blue Moon - Myth and Legend

July 31, 2015
The Blue Moon
The lunar cycle is approximately 29.5 days from full moon to full moon. Given that each month is usually at least 30 days, with some being 31, and poor old February getting short changed with just 28 most of the time, it is inevitable that, sooner or later, when a full moon falls very early in a month, there are more than 29.5 days still left, resulting in a second full moon very late in the month. The event of the second full moon in a month has become known as the Blue Moon due to its rarity, giving rise to the old cliché Once in a Blue Moon.
The blue moon has sparked the imagination of many cultures, giving rise to all kinds of myths, legends, old wives tales and proverbs. For instance, in some cultures it is unlucky for girls to stare at a Blue Moon or they will become pregnant by the moon and the child will be a monster! Sadly for this belief, I absolutely intend to be staring at the Blue Moon on the night of July 31 - and I will love my monster, no matter how pretty he or she turns out to be! ;)
Another interesting fact about this Blue Moon is that it coincides with the Celtic/Wiccan festival of Lughnasad, or the Wedding Feast of Lugh, This is one of the Greater Sabbats of the Wiccan calendar, and, as a harvest festival, is accompanied by all kinds of rites and sacrifices, and we will be celebrating our own Great Rite according to our traditions, skyclad and under sky. This is such a liberating and exciting sabbat, and will be much more special with the Blue Moon shining down on us.
Here are a few other superstitions and traditions about the Blue Moon for you to take your pick from:

  • It’s a great idea to pick flowers and berries during a blue moon as it will bring more abundance, love and beauty into your life.
  • If you see a full moon and it is blue, take a coin in your pocket and turn it over for good luck.
  • There is an old English tradition that if you are a housewife and see a blue moon you are to go turn the bed because it will make you more fertile.
  • A Welsh tradition holds that if a member of the family dies during a blue moon, three more will follow.
  • In the gypsy culture, if you sleep with the moon on your face, particularly a blue moon, you may go insane, so blinds were drawn or windows closed during all full moon phases.
  • If you attempt a robbery on the third day of a blue moon it will fail. Best not to rob anything at all.
  • If a person becomes ill during a blue moon phase he will die in 8 days.
  • Looking at a blue moon through glasses or any glass item is considered bad luck for 30 days.
We hope you have fun and a wonderful night for the Blue Moon, and don't forget to celebrate in style!

Saving Lady J - New Release - Suzy Ayers


Saving Lady J – The Butterfly Series

Suzy Ayers

Dark Hollows Press

Book blurb:
Jamie is a woman confused about who she is sexually. Her submissive side is constantly at war with her mouth.
She becomes involved with Julian, a man with secrets of his own, who becomes her slave.
When two dominant men enter Jamie and Julian's life, Jamie's world begins to unravel. As she attempts to help Julian fight his battles, she unwitting puts herself in harms way.
About the book and intentions:

There are 3 - 4 main characters and multiple supporting characters. Just as in “real life” Jamie has friends and a job. They don’t know about her personal activities outside of work. Jamie’s had always thought she was a “freak” and hid away. She found herself sexually and unfortunately in the lifestyle there are abusive and frightening situations, as in any “vanilla” life.
I wanted to show growth within two of the main characters over this series. The book is intended to have a second one to explain Julian’s dark past and hopefully a bright future for Jamie.
Where this came from:

A majority of this book is based on non-fiction, real characters and a heck of a lot of naughty dreams. Julian is a real person and even Raynth is a real person that I speak with and get advice from. All names are changed and I have never met these people, sadly.
Themes/Warnings for the book:

This book is a dark erotic thriller. It is for readers 18+ and includes, but not limited to: force, mind-fuckery, anal, spanking and spanking implements, non-con/dub-con, suspenseful elements, pegging, interracial sex, cuckold-themes, etc.

Jamie – main character, Domme, submissive, masochist (Switch)
Julian – main character, slave
Chris – main character, Dominant, sadist
Marc – main character, Dominant, sadist

Excerpt – The Painslut

Chris demanded all of my free time, which was fine with me. I needed a release after my highly stressful days at work. He seemed to be able to read me well. It was uncanny almost how well.
Our first real session was one I’d never forget. He wanted to test out a new toy on me, a flogger that had many chain-links of metal instead of leather. My entire body was physically shaking as I knelt down for him. He was intimidating on his own, but wielding a medieval looking weapon I nearly fainted as it crashed down on my back and ass.
“Sir!” I gasped and the breath coated the thin air that escaped my lungs. My fingers attempted to claw at the hardwood floor, but not gaining any purchase.
“Yes, little one.” His gravelly voice hinted at his arousal, as his weapon of torture met my skin again.
My head rocked back ever so slightly and he knelt down to accept the fact that I couldn’t speak, so he spoke for me.
“Do you enjoy the pain, my beautiful painslut?”
I nodded astonished at my own body’s reaction to this. I jumped, startled as his hand reached under me and drew out my fragrant arousal. It was sticky and bountiful. It dripped from his fingers. He plunged them into my mouth, forcing them further and further into my throat. My confusion became realization as he used my mouth, testing my gag reflex.
“Good girl,” he said as he stood back up. “Come,” he ordered for me to follow.
