Thursday Thoughts with Skylar M. Cates


In my sex fantasy, nobody ever loves me for my mind.
--Nora Ephron

It’s my fantasy and I’m going to be a hot, extroverted, unashamed slut.

 It’s my fantasy and I can make a mess of my bed, roll in chocolate, tear off my expensive lingerie, have sex toys all over the room---and it will all be magically cleaned up by somebody else the next day. It’s my fantasy and men will want me, women will want me, kings and queens and everything in-between will want me, and I hold all the power.

 It’s my fantasy and I will come time and time again, craving orgasm after orgasm. I’m helpless to resist--

 It’s my fantasy, and my partner (partners) come harder and longer than they ever have with anybody else and I have ruined them for all others.

It’s my fantasy and here is my love: There’s laughter and honest connection between us. There’s cuddling and sweetness before sleep.

It’s my fantasy and there are no regrets, no morning afters, no hurt feelings, no consequences, no gossip, no pictures on Facebook, no choices to struggle over. It’s my fantasy and I’m this person’s entire world and they are mine. We have no bills to pay, no health issues, no outside pressures. We exist in our orgasmic bubble together: fucking and floating on into forever. 

It’s my fantasy and it changes daily.

 It can be whatever I want, whenever I want it.

It’s my fantasy. What’s yours?

Thanks for hosting me today! When I was told to write about dreams, it turned into a little prose poem. It was fun! I appreciate the guest spot.

GIVEAWAY: Leave a comment to be entered into the random drawing for a digital copy of The Only Guy.

Aaron Weiss knows how to escape. Years ago, he ran from a romantic disappointment and impulsively joined the Army. Now, he’s forced to take a medical discharge and readjusting to life at home proves a challenge.

 Jesse Ross knows how to hide. He realizes he’s an oddball, and that he’s an outsider within his own family. He also knows his secret love since childhood, Aaron, only wants his good-looking, favored older brother. Yet Jesse could never completely abandon his intense feelings for Aaron. Over the years, Jesse was a faithful pen pal to him. Still, he's shocked to his core to find Aaron on his doorstep.

 As long-buried secrets and past hurts take center stage, the two are overwhelmingly drawn to each other. But it’s their future that may force them to risk everything.

Skylar M. Cates loves a good romance. She is quite happy to drink some coffee, curl up with a good book, and not move all day. Most days, however, Skylar is chasing after her husband, her kids, and her giant dog, Wasabi. Skylar dreams about spending her days writing her novels, walking along the beach, and making more time for her good friends. On a shoestring budget, Skylar has traveled all over in her early years. Although, lately, the laundry room is the farthest place she has visited, Skylar still loves to chat with people from all around the globe. You can find Skylar on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.


  1. Love the poem! Off to see if the book has reached UK yet.

  2. I wish I had the knack for writing prose! I'm great with factual material, not so good with creative endeavors. Which is why I read voraciously, to compensate.

  3. Ah, fantasy - keeps us all going every day!
    Mine at the moment is fairly bland, but a week with just me, food, drink and lots of reading in one of those hotel huts that sit over the ocean - and of course, said drinking and eating doesnt add any weight!

  4. Oh, that is lovely! The book's premise sounds really intriguing, too...

  9. Mmm - well, my fantasy is always something new :) but it's true that it has never been about my mind....
    :) congrats on your new relese - looks good

  10. My fantasies are totally NSFW and when they aren't, they involve getting away to a nice island so I can read in peace. With a cabana. And a cabana boy and... well NSFW again. Your book looks like great fun! Perhaps a perfect beach read. :)

  11. I like the sound of your fantasy. I'm too tired to make up elaborate fantasies, all I can dream about right now is some time alone with a Kindle full of good books.
