T. A. Moorman's Top 5 Things That Make Her Go WTF
1. The fact that women have a double standard in everything! Especially when it comes to sexuality and parenting. It’s been that way since the beginning of time, and as many strides that have been made throughout history, that seems to be the one thing that remains the same. We may have earned the right to vote, to become doctors, lawyers, authors, and work in any field that we want. Even run for the position of President of the United States. But, she had better not have the nerve to be promiscuous. A woman had better not dare to have children by more than one man, that’s only okay for men to do. Some men have around twenty children, by as many women, and don’t do anything for any of those kids. Probably don’t even know what half of them look like. The women that he had those children with? Well, they get told how stupid they were for having laid down with him in the first place. Dear Society, WTF?
2. How is that toddlers, like mine, who can’t even mumble not one single word by so demanding? And controlling??? Some of the looks I get from my youngest spawn frighten even me, and that is saying a lot. Especially the one in which I’m convinced means, “Bend to my will right now, or I shall destroy you.” She’s twenty months now, and yes, still has her pacifier. None of the others made it to this point with one. But her? If she discovers that thing is not in her mouth in the middle of the night, the true demon in her comes out. She will sit straight up, start screaming like a banshee with her entire body vibrating like a tuning fork, until it is plopped back in her mouth. Then? It’s as if a mute/off button has been pressed. She just lies back down like nothing ever happened, and drifts right back into dreamland. Dear New Generation of Spawns, WTF?
3, I have about a gazillion different ideas floating around in my head at once at any given moment of the day. Yet, sometimes when I sit down to write, none of it wants to come out of my fingertips. Or, and this is the one that really gets me, another story will go to said fingers that must be let out, making the other wait. Sort of like cutting in line. Like, book 2 of Underlayes. It doesn’t take place directly after book 1, but, it does conclude Tia’s story, and it does work. But, it wasn’t supposed to be next! So, there is a 1.5 novella in the works. The main character of that book just wouldn’t wait, that entire story just wouldn’t wait. My brain is like a second entity, it works the way it wants to, when it wants to. Just like how it always allows me to fall for the wrong guy, and see him for the douchebag he really is after the fact. You know, when it’s too late. Dear Brain of Mine, WTF?
4. The two oldest Spawns, both girls, now eighteen and sixteen, are into all of these friggin so-called reality T.V. shows. And they actually think the shit is real. From Little Women, to Black Ink, to Marriage Boot Camp, all of it is total bull. I mean, come on. If you were suspecting someone of cheating on you, or if you were cheating on someone, with a camera right there filming all of it… Or has no one heard the concept of playback? They even used to watch Honey Boo Boo! Sorry, but you are no longer a poor hillbilly once you have money. At that point you are just a rich hillbilly with no manners. And you give a bad name to hillbillies. Dear Reality TV, and Older Spawns for believing the crap that makes my brain wanna blead, WTF?
5. Shipping and handling is my biggest downfall when it comes to my Etsy shop. The prices I’m forced to charge for shipping really does piss me off, and I really am trying to find a better way, that I can afford. When you ship from the Postal office? Even if it’s nothing more than a small keychain. If its packaged inside of a mailing envelope, the minimum for shipping it is three dollars. And when shipping overseas? Same keychain? No less than eight dollars. So, if you ever win a giveaway and feel like you’re waiting forever? You’re probably just waiting until we can afford to send it. Dear US Shipping Charges, WTF?
Trust me, there are more things that make me go WTF!? Those are just the top five, in no particular order. Lol. Smooches!
Witch Wars - The Underlayes Book 1
Tialanna is fated to become the queen of all Underlayes witches. She thinks the worst part of her life is the fact that she’s betrothed to a complete stranger while in love with someone else. She’s in for a rude awakening when she discovers who, and what, she truly is.
Tialanna is about to learn the truth behind several lies, because not only does her life depend on it, but so does the fate of the family she never even knew she had. But hey, life would probably just be boring if she didn't have to deal with elemental witches, vampires, demons, sorcerers, bindings, spells, lust and betrayal. Right?
***This book is intended for mature audiences only as it includes both graphic violence and graphic sex***
When you become a Mom, you begin to put yourself last, and your combat boots begin to collect dust. Going to your child's PTA meetings in full Gothic, especially industrial, regalia is pretty much frowned upon. Especially by your own children, and your teens would die of a heart attack. But, one should not have to completely stop being themselves, uniqueness is greatness. So all of that darkness is put into words in her books, and designs in her jewelry sold in her GothicMoms DarkCharms shop.
Mother of five beautiful children, but by far more than just that. T. A. Moorman is an artist, a violinist, a seamstress, a crafter, a writer, a blogger, a reviewer, a dark confidant and a darkly dangerous, fiercely protective friend. And currently broke, so go buy something of hers. Lol.
