I'll pick three entrants (separate individuals) that I can write a piece to, and they will be printed in the book with a dedication. As well as that, I'll print their poem out, sign it and post off to the winners.
Go, go, goooooooo!

You can see many examples of my work on here to help with ideas.

***NEW POEM*** - Daring Touch



 
This is a first for me...It's a poem based on a scene from my debut book An Acute Attraction...
“How daring do you feel?”
I remember the words
In an open wide space
Let down by the curbs
Inquisitive and daring
I read the next text
“…I ask you to touch yourself”
What do I do next?
My brain’s saying one thing
And body screams another
It’s not a case of wanting
As I’m in need of no other
Seeking, searching, I look around
Feeling brave I touch me there
Imaging his fingers
As I lay before him 'bare'




(c) A J Walters, 2015

An Acute Attraction  & all of the books from The Attraction Series are currently only 99p/99cents on kindle Amazon.com and AmazonUK Also available on all Amazon sites.

***NEW POEM*** TEARS (Ana's Inner Goddess)



Looking out of the window
 I reflect on what’s gone
 With rain beating down
 I see that I’m the only one

Tears run down slowly
 The smeared pane of glass
 Rivers of water merging
 Passion and feelings amass

I thought I was strong
 And tough enough to cope
 I guess I am in some ways
 But I still live in hope

(c) A J Walters, 2015

 
 
 
 

I found the following picture apt for the poem.

**NEW POEM** MASKED LOVERS

 
 
 
 
Gliding with such grace, strength and honour
A lady takes to the stage, dressed in her armour
Having once been lost, alone for some time
She returns to her duty, viewing suitors in their prime

Masks they disguise them, imitate and play
Windows to the soul, the only part that can betray
Touching is forbidden, outlawed and denied
Teasing all her senses, making her tingle inside

Searching the room, she ignores the talk
Yes she’s the woman that he had to stalk
A connection is made, as he turns round to see
Creating a charge of the highest degree

One dance was promised as the music starts
Air reverberates, the sound of breaking hearts
Dreams are lost, shattered and burned
Especially those of the nemesis been spurned

Secretly leaving a space for their own
She’s given instructions that are well known
Discarding of silk, satin and lace
The woman prepares with a fixed embrace

His love, lust and deep rooted passion
Are merged together with compassion
Two bodies as one, lay silently sated
In a shape of life, which is firmly stated


(c) A J Walters, 2015

NEW POEM - You only You

 
 
 
It’s funny how life can turn out
Even if it isn’t at the time
We have to laugh, before we cry
Or all four walls we’d want to climb

Whether it’s family, close or removed
Or a partner you love or lost
Take a step back and look ahead
Don’t lose yourself at any cost

There might be a moment that comes along
Where that someone will need you
How many would actually want to step up
In truth, there’s only a few

Be true to yourself, heart and soul
Yes be strong, be tough, be bold
If you’re a person that sees both sides
You’ll never leave a person in the cold

Life will repeat itself, it often does
A cycle of regret, promise and love
However in the end, you are but you
Who respects and cares for thereof



(c) A J Walters, 2015

POEM - EXPLOSIONS

 
 
 
Heart shattering into a thousand shards,
Soul exploding, it’s become too hard.
Thunder roaring and lightning strikes,

Piercing deep with the sharpest spikes.
Shielding, defending the centre of me,
Curling up tight, dreaming what could be.
Life burnt of desire and lost of hope,
Emotions wild, feeling a tightening rope.
Loved and lost isn’t what hurts most,
It’s the words and actions from he a ghost.
The barrage of hate and air so cold,
Coming from this figure, big and bold.
Tears run dry, an empty shell is all,
No-one to catch me as then I fall.
Dropping fast into a bottomless pit,
Closing my eyes I wait for the next hit.
Silence descends on the room we’re in,
Heavy and still, the weight causes din.
Daring to take just one secret glance,
Hoping and praying for a single chance.
The saving grace of a guardian angel is he,
A saviour of life signing a decree.
Taking hold of limbs, battered and bruised,
Belonging to a woman mentally abused.

(c) A J Walters, 2014

NEWS UPDATE AND FREE EBOOK


#NewReleases #ELJamesRetweets #FSOGPoetry #SylvainReynardRetweets #AuthorSigning #FreeEbook

Hi all,


I've not properly posted on here for a while. I'm sure like a lot of you, time is flying by so quickly that I lose track of time. So  much has happened and I have so many people to thank. Unfortunately, I won't be able to single everyone out.

This year saw my book An Enrapturing Attraction really take off! It is part of a series, but you're able to read it as a stand alone, readers have been able to read about Hannah, Christian, Marc & Isabel. I took the decision to have these available to readers for only 99p/99cents each as I know how expensive everything is these days. Below are just one comment I've had on Goodreads about the books.

"I came into this book blind, not knowing much about the author or the storyline, and I believe this enhanced my enjoyment of the book...Characters slightly older than I normally read about, but this met they had lived more so their characters had more depth to them. The sexual chemistry between them both was electric but their connection intellectually was also present. I loved the mix of suspense and romance which I hope will develop even further in the next book" ~ Review of An Acute Attraction by Rosie, For The Love Of Books






In between writing the books I've thoroughly enjoyed writing my poetry. All of them are original pieces of work. Some are written from life or have had a #FSOG or #Garbriel'sInferno theme. I have read & loved both E L James & Sylvain Reynard's work. Below are a couple of pieces















 
 
 
 
I was so fortunate that both E L JamesSylvain Reynard read and Retweeted my poems. I'm probably daft saying this...But if you haven't read the FSOG or Gabriel's Inferno Series of books, well then I would recommend them.


Earlier this month I attended my first ever author signing in Peterborough and well...WOW!! Even those that have done these events before reported that it was one of the best ever signings they'd attended. Thanks for this has to go out to Jo & Rachel of Hourglass Events. It was bloomin brilliant! To have shared the stage with authors such as Jodi Ellen Malpass and Kitty French was such an honour. What I gained out of this more than anything was to meet & become friends to so many.





Me & the beautiful Kitty French



I'm pictured here with the incredibly handsome G G Carver





Me & my bestie!!

Me & the fabulous Jodi Ellen Malpas
 
 
 
 




Me &  the stunning EJ Shortall and Andie.M.Long


 
 
 
 
In July I'll be attending the Second City Author Signing in Birmingham. I'm can't wait to be a part of this & be able to fan girl as well attend as an author.
 
 

 
 
 
NEWS UPDATE: I am currently writing a new novel. It is more mystery & suspense, but will include some romance & erotica. It'll be out before the end of the year!! In between I'll continue to dish out the poetry.
 
 
I'll love and leave you with news that my poetry book Love, Lust, Dreams & Heartache is FREE on Smashwords!!




Thank you all so much for your support & I'll undoubtedly post some more poetry very soon.

***NEW POEM*** - SENSUAL SPIRIT (World Poetry Day)

 
 
 
 
Crisp white wine
Poured from its bottle
Tantalisingly slowly ...

I pull back on the throttle
Teasingly, pleasingly
He’s wanting to lead
Captivating, enrapturing
Eyes never leave this steed
A licking of lips
And chinking of glass
Adrenalin rushes
Deep feelings amass
Warm scented candles
Add a flickering light
He moves right beside me
My thighs clench tight
Clothes still remain
Pooled around on the floor
The lingerie I chose
Discarded by the door
It’s a perfect ending
To the perfect night
Making passionate love
Of which a poet could write

***NEW POEM*** A Desired Promise

 
 
 
Steam rises entering the room
From the water in the tub
Muscles tense with a reminder
My body desires a sensual rub
A hand invites me to step in
A silent gesture to enthral
Sitting down before him
I watch the bubbles rise and fall
Slowly leaning back I settle
His legs at my side protect
For a moment a silence descends
So find time to relax, reflect
His fingers begin a journey
Travelling gently down my arm
Not stopping still they move
I’m now everything but calm
Skimming over sensitive skin
A moan escapes my lips
Losing control I let him in
A swift movement of my hips
I remember the promise he made
To care and look after me
Allowing my breath to slow
It’s exactly how it should be

NEW POEM - Based on Sylvain Reynard's, Gabriel Series


As a reader and author I am a HUGE fan of Sylvain Reynard's series of Gabriel's Inferno books. I do have to say though, I wasn't hot on the last book of the trilogy. The first two however, Gabriel's Inferno and Gabriel's Rapture I absolutely loved, loved, LOVED!

So, I fancied writing a short poem about the first book.

Here it is...



Searching deep in the eyes of a woman,
He sought refuge, help and redemption.
Before him sat his own Beatrice,
Self-loathing there was to be no exemption.
Wrath of the past beheld the man,
Deep remorse and guilt played its part.
Sweet Julianne begged to be entered,
Into tortured Gabriel’s heart.

***NEW POEM*** Bookaholic

 

 

What is it about books?

They stir and brew

Creating pointed claws

And act like steel hooks

They take your emotions

Pulling you deep within

Confuse you, infuse you

With power and potions

The imagination’s to blame

Wild as it maybe

Something we can’t control

Awaiting to inflame

Whether it be crime

Or a hearty romance

Words to laugh at

What a way to spend time

Escapism or real life

Out of our bubble

Is something we seek

Yet still cause strife

That world is not our own

Sometimes wishing it was

Conjuring up visions

Knowing we’re not alone

*****NEW POEM***** Hours of Darkness

 
 

 

From the moment I said I love you

I knew the sentiment to be true

Catching glimpses of you sitting

Admiring the beautiful view

My heart skipping a beat or two

May sound corny to those around

But I don’t ever look or listen

As the feelings are profound

Hearing you say the words back to me

Had me smiling ear to ear

Wanting to hug and hold you

Feel your body close and near

Life turns and I nearly lose you

The ground beneath suddenly fell

Darkness heavy, smothering me

My new home was there in hell

After hours of patiently waiting

You walked into the room

Relief and happiness soon replace

A space full of doom and gloom

Not able to stop from running

Into arms so warm and strong

I thank the Lord looking above

That what could have been was wrong

***NEW POEM*** An Unbridled Passion

 
 
Walking in the room
Suddenly he’s there
His hands, his lips
Touching everywhere
Blind in the darkness
My breath it hitches
And raising of arms
My stomach clinches
Discarding, disrobing
A neck then exposed
I am but anything
A woman composed
Hands they travel
To where it yearns
Expecting and wanting
Even if it burns
An electrifying touch
With fingers that seek
Making legs tremble
And my body weak
Once against the wall
We find our bed
To love and share
The night ahead

NEW POEM - THE DANCE

#FSOG themed poem
 
 
 
 



 
 
 
A dinner date was planned
You swept me off my feet
I had nerves floating within
As to who I was to meet
I was dressed and ready
Simply but still enough
You looked as you do
Smartly suited and buff
Each second feeling at ease
As I lightly span around
Emotions at a high
Feet yet to touch ground
No longer did I feel
Separate from your world
As I pirouetted out
And my life unfurled
 
 
 
 
The Dance by A J Walters, (c) 2015
 
 
 



I listened to the Ellie Goulding​ song - Love Me Like You Do, while writing this <3 E L James​
