Bubble wrap and massage oil

The nightstand of an erotic romance author must have thrilling assortment of goodies, right? Maybe not. Here are thirteen things I have in my nightstand right now.

1. Fat calipers

2. Measuring tape (goes along with the fat calipers. Get your mind out of the gutter. I don’t measure THAT)

3. A photo from our trip to Puerto Vallarta seven years ago that I thought made me look fat, so I hid it. Looking at it again, I was right.

4. Massage oil

5. A few pens

6. Bubble wrap

7. Swiss army knife

8. A remote control for a TV we no longer have

9. A stack of old baseball cards

10. Cassette tape on anti-procrastination

11. Business cards from when I worked at the YMCA six years ago

12. Flashlight

13. Lightbulb

What’s in your night-stand? I hope the contents are more exciting than mine.

Becca Simone writes erotic romance for The Wild Rose Press, where her characters lead far sexier lives than she does. Her Halloween story, Midnight Treat, is available now. You can find out more about her at her website.

We only have one nightstand and it's on hubby's side and I never use it. I'm too scared to look inside! I however,on my side of the bed, I have a cute little table covered with colorful scarves with a Bohemian feel. Under the table is a cute little covered basket with delightful, sensual items hidden inside. The contents might make an nice TT. LOL. Happy TT!

What's in my nightstand? Eep!

Well, let's see:
my leather gloves (so the kitty won't eat them), a bar of vanilla soap (to scent the drawer - it used to smell strange),
US coins,
ear plugs (so I can sleep),
and various other run-of-the-mill items.

The rest I can't tell you about. ;-)

Happy TT!

Omy... I don't have a nightstand... however, I have my supplements and lots of books... plus, that pad of paper and pen to write down story ideas and phrases. And a whole lot of stuff I need to go through.

Mine is more like a junk drawer, obviously. My husband read my TT list and says, "Wow. You'd never know you were an erotic author." LOL

Becca Simone said...

I should have said, an "erotica" author. Ha ha.

I'm with you, Becca. I have a junk drawer in my nightstand: a bag of assorted IGo adapters (man, I love that thing!), a bag of memory sticks, lip balm, a couple of batteries (hee hee), paper clips, pens, mini-Sharpies in assorted colors and a couple of combination locks - how'd they get in there?
