The Neighbor


dontravis.com blog post #407 Pretty good reception for @Uncle Evan last week. Readers from Hong Kong still led the pack. Let’s see what they think about this week’s submission.   Courtesy of pickpik.com ***** THE NEIGHBOR   The guy caught my attention the day after I came home from University at the end of my junior year. Probably about thirty, he was the original model for “tall, dark, and handsome.” And I do mean handsome! In all modesty, I’m sort of a specialist on “handsome.” And although I didn’t give in to my hunger… well, except for once… until my freshman year at the U up in Albuquerque, I knew from the time my voice broke I was different. I grew up in this little town of about three...

Signs You May Have an STI and When to See A Doctor by Miss Know It All


Miss Know It AllBack in March, I discussed how to protect you while dating during the Coronavirus crisis. Now more than ever, before engaging in sexual intercourse, you should know your partner’s status and recognize the signs that he or she may have an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection).    What to Look For   If you have a persistent itch, discharge or discomforting rash, blisters, lesions, or unusual lumps, blood in the urine or pain when urinating, an unexplained rash or persistent sore throat, you may have an STI. Remember, not all STIs turn into a disease. Some STIs are curable, while others are manageable. However, you will not know what treatment is needed, if indeed you do have one...

FEATURED AUTHOR: J.D. BLACKROSE


  ABOUT THE BOOK Waylon Jenkins has a problem. Well, he's got a few of them. The ghost of Betsy Ross lives in his house, he's pretty sure his favorite client is the victim of ongoing domestic violence, and he's been roped into helping the police investigate a series of murders. 

 And his penis fell off in the shower this morning. He needs a new one, but none of his friends are willing to donate theirs to the cause. 

In case it isn't obvious by now, Waylon Jenkins is a zombie. 

He's also one of the most highly respected and in-demand makeup artists in Hollywood, and that keeps him busy, no matter how dead he is. But now he needs to find out who's committing a string of murders, and make su...

@Uncle Evan


 dontravis.com blog post #406  I guess Hong Kongers (Hong Kongites?) are really taken with Vampires because they led the field (10 to 1) over everyone else throughout the presentation of “The Prescient.” Russians stayed up there but fell to third place over readers from the good old USA by the final episode.   This week, a bit of nonsense totally different from vampire stories. Well, come to think of it…             Courtesy of pxhere.com   ***** @UNCLE EVAN There was no Uncle Evan—at least in my life. I’m a seventeen-year-old named Marty Evans who made him up out of whole cloth and posted on Twitter @UncleEvan. After all, who pays attention to a high schooler, and I wanted a voice. Everyone...

You Can Hire Someone to End Your Marriage or Relationship by Miss Know It All


Miss Know It AllIf you think you have heard, seen, or read it all, think again. No matter how old you are, there is always something new to learn. I had to read an article twice to make certain I was not reading a work of fiction with a shocking ending.We all know there are many ways to end a relationship or marriage: Divorce, or hiring someone to bump-off that person you no longer want in your life. Of course, I would never recommend the latter. It is not worth serving time for murdering someone because you can no longer stand him or her. On the other hand, maybe you met someone new and want to be with that individual, even though you are married. Image by Shutterbug75 from PixabayHowever, ...

dontravis.com blog post #404  Those readers from Hong Kong must really dig vampires. They led to pack by 10 to 1. Russia remained in second.   Last week, Boris returned to succumb to Tancready’s initial demands. Then he fled into the night again… this time naked. What happens next?  Courtesy of publicdomainphotos.net   ***** THE PRESCIENT              As before, the boy kept his distance for a few days before appearing unannounced on my doorstep. Neither of us spoke when I opened the door. Faint bruises beneath his eyes bespoke hours of worry and lost sleep. His aura was wild, fretful, fearful. Yet, he was here. He moved into my living room and turned on me accusingly. “What have you done to...

  dontravis.com blog post #403 Readers from Hong Kong led the pack again last week, and surprisingly readers from Russia came in second. We readers from the US fell to third place. Unusual.

Using his own mode of transportation (not not on bat wings) he follows Boris back to UNM. Now let’s see what happens.                   Courtesy of pkfuel.com ***** THE PRESCIENT Using that other dimension, I easily reached the campus ahead of Boris.
