Music Monday and Jim Morrison

Last week, I blogged about Robert Johnson, blues great who died at age 27 in 1938.

Jim Morrison, poet, songwriter, and lead singer for The Doors met the same fate at 27.

Here’s one of my favourites, the title track from the album LA Woman, released only three months before Jim Morrison’s death in Paris, France.

To this day, a cloud of mystery hangs over the way he died. Was it a heroin overdose, negligence on his girlfriend’s part, or heart failure as cited on the death certificate?

No autopsy was ever performed.

Jim Morrison died July 3, 1971.

Music Mondays ~ People are Strange by The Doors

FiW.act-three_4Last week, I featured John Lee Hooker to highlight my book “Seduced by the Blues” and received a bizarre comment that had nothing to do with the post. Good friend and author, Justin Bog said to me, “People are strange” and suggested I use this song this week. Thanks Justin!

He’s right. People are strange.

As a writer of erotica, “strangeness” is not foreign to me. There is as much diversity in sexual preferences as there are people in the world. Strange? Perhaps, but that’s not for me to judge. My “normal” might be someone else’s kinky and vice versa.

“Act Three” is a complex story about people whom you might consider strange. It involves a director, an actor, and a woman who wants them both. I use my love of wordplay throughout, and you’ll find it’s quite funny at times. I wrote this to be playful because I think many adults have lost their ability to just have fun.

I’ve received great feedback on this story because it pushes the boundaries for what many readers find comfortable in erotic writing. Hope you’ll give it a try.
