Remember all the men and women who fought for us. Our lives would be much different without their sacrifices. They deserve this day. And more.

A reader might be tempted to dismiss this novelette as nothing more than something to get your motor running, so to speak. ME Nesser does some things in her writing that break the typical formula for the romance novel. She not only writes from perspectives of both her characters, which is not an easy thing to pull off, she does it with the subtle nuances between the ways men and women think, especially when they are young. She also is one of the few writers that describes first timers experiencing other things than the typical intercourse on their first encounter. They explore each other and appreciate each other's bodies without the typical progression of just intercourse so often found in this genre of writing. It may seems trivial to some but this shows the opening of the made for women type of reading that was in the past, pathetic to say the least. Great job Ms. Nesser, keep it coming, pun intended. 😉

Not only was this an amazing way to start my day, it made me cry. Thank you LJ!

A lot of people thought we would be closed today. On the contrary, we were open and completely slammed. Apparently, memorial day is a long weekend for most folks. We always have Sunday and Monday off, so this is just another weekend for us. The only difference is that a ton of our clients needed to be properly groomed for this momentous weekend, so yours truly was making people pretty for nine hours today! Heck, we were jamming all week!  I hope everyone thoroughly enjoys all of our hard work and dedication, because the staff at Mark & M.E. had a blast working on you.  Happy red, white and blue everyone!
Let the #memorial day madness continue @marknme today! We open at 7:30!!

If a wax technician advises you to shave, then she doesn't understand the science behind waxing or the beauty and benefits of waxing on a regular basis. Besides, shaving is a four letter word in my book.

Thursday, May 26, 2016

A woman came to the salon yesterday for a Brazilian who I hadn't seen in a few months.  Right off the bat, she warned me that her situation was like a science experiment. I can't say that I felt like a scientist when I waxed her, but I definitely felt like a surgeon. Or maybe a magician?

When I wrote a chapter entitled "What's that Smell?" in The Happy Hoo-Ha, I was very specific about some of the unpleasantness I have encountered in my career. When I recently came across someone who looked like they finger painted their backside with chocolate colored paint, I realize that the person must not have read my book. The crazy thing is that I still love my job!

Is it silly to admit that I do a little pump fist every time I sell any one of my books?
~www.menesser.com  the writer....hehe~
One woman told me A Promise of Passion turned her on. Another told me it was porn. I like hearing the feedback. Give me more!

I'm digging how Square has it's users review us. Just a few quick words make us feel great! OK, so not even review makes us feel great, but most of them do! This is what was emailed to me this morning. It was a nice way to start the day! (and I still can't imagine why it would ever take anyone 45 minutes to do a Brazilian...) 
"ME is fast yet thorough. I can't image going through that process for 45 minute or more like many places."

Summer is approaching and it is time to start making your plan to acquire that adorable sphinx cat on a regular basis once again. It's a super busy time at Mark & M.E. so it would be a good idea to plan ahead or you may not be able to get in when you want. Also, Mark and I will be out of the salon from June 7-16 which will make things even more complicated. So have that conversation with your kitty and let me know your plan. I promise to make you meow after a few minutes of hissing.

Saturday, May 21, 2016

After a short hiatus, I am back and ready to rip!  First person has already come and gone from the salon with a big smile and a bald... God, I love my job!

I have a beautiful, open-minded and young spirited mom in her mid-eighties. In many respects, I am very much like her. This is why I was surprised by her reaction to A Promise of Passion She thought my new book could be used to teach young lovers about sex. She actually told me that it was very...educational. She also thought it was more detailed than she expected. My question to you is can there be too much detail when you're reading about people having sex?

I woke up at one in the morning sweating profusely. At first, I blamed it on hot flashes. After an hour and a half of discomfort (that's the polite description of what I was feeling), I realized the air conditioner wasn't working. The electricity went out in the entire complex and it has been really hot and muggy in the Keys all week. Fortunately, my husband called the electric company in the middle of the night and reported the outage. The power was restored as the sun came up and I decided that going for a swim would cool me off and loosen up my 51 aching parts. I walked down to the pool and the scariest bolt of lightening splashed into the water on a sandbar that is right off our complex. It's amazing how quickly those 51 parts ran up two flights of stairs. Now, I'm back inside where it's safe after a cool shower and some deep breaths. As I sit in my mom's recliner and stare at the ocean, I'm able to watch the lightening and listen to the thunder and ponder the events of the past few hours. It has been an interesting way to start my day. I've decided that these are all signs that this is going to be an exciting year! m.e. nesser

On this last day of my half century mark, I'm feeling reflective about my age. How am I different from ten years ago or even twenty years ago? My face is more lined, but I laugh a lot, so I'm okay with my lines. My kids are older, which makes me sad sometimes, but they're amazing adults, so I feel like we did a good job and it makes me feel proud. I've been married almost three decades, which may seem like forever to most, but it's not nearly long enough for me. I haven't had my fill of Mark quite yet. I have a bizarre waxing career that I love and the ability to write books just for fun. So as I stare at the ocean with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes, I realize that my emotions are all good and I am blessed. Happy hump day!

Woohoo, another review of A Promise of Passion on Amazon.  Thank you, thank you to whoever you are!!!   "A great story! I couldn't wait to find out what happened after reading the introduction. Excited for the next book!"

Monday, May 16, 2016

Remember when you finally got the nerve to advance to the next base with the one you were convinced was your first love? For my couple in A Promise of Passion, the worst thing ever happened as the boy was nearing third base. I wonder what it was...

Sunday, May 15, 2016

Believe it or not, I have a lot to say. And I even have a lot to say about things that aren't vagina related. OK, that's not entirely true. Check out my article in this month's Rochester Woman Magazine.

Saturday, May 14, 2016

This was the ad that we put in this month's issue of the Rochester Woman Magazine. Hair, skin, nails, lashes, waxing....yep, we do it all!
Love when I have happy fans on the other side of the country!

Friday, May 13, 2016

If you read A Promise of Passion and enjoyed any part of it, please consider writing a review on Amazon. It means a lot to me!
I went to East High School to talk to kids about choosing Cosmetology as a profession. I couldn't help but notice these signs everywhere. I wondered if the kids in this part of the city haven't heard of the "between the cheeks" wax at Mark & M.E.

Thursday, May 12, 2016

Summer is not time to be friends with Sasquatch. I will be out of the salon May 17-20 and June 7-16, so please plan your bushwhacking rendezvous accordingly.

I'm a happy girl who writes happy books, but when we have two no-shows and two last minute cancellations in the last hour of the day, I'm having a hard time turning my frown upside-down. Not only did these appointments waste our time, they inconvenienced all the appointments that we told we couldn't accommodate between 5-6 today. I accept that last minute cancellations are unavoidable, but no-shows are inexcusable. We had a total of 5 no-shows in the past two days. This kind of behavior makes it difficult to run a business. OK, I'm done bitching. I'll be funny again next time.
Some of you may remember your mother telling you it was always important to have on clean underwear in case you were involved in an accident. I believe it is more important to be "clean" beneath your undergarments. Let me give you an example why. I had a client who was procrastinating about coming in for a wax. Suddenly, she had terrible stomach pains. She was rushed to the hospital and admitted for four days before they decided to remove her appendix. One of the incisions was in her pubic area, so they were forced to shave part of it. When she got home, the rest of it was terribly long and she couldn't come in while she was recovering, so she trimmed the rest. When I saw the area, it was irritated from the razor and she complained that all of it itched from the trim and the shave. Yes, I believe in always being prepared.

When I read a love story, I like knowing how both characters are feeling. That is why I alternated between the boy and the girl's point of view in A Promise of Passion. There is quite a bit of explicit sex in the book and someone suggested taking turns reading the chapters with your mate. It could make for some interesting foreplay. If you try it, please let me know how it goes. (And be specific as possible!)

Monday, May 9, 2016

Look down and ask yourself...should I get a wax this week? Or can I stretch it to next week? If you want me to wax you, then this week is where it's at, because I will not be working May 16-19. Since I  will be making the leap to a half century plus one, I decided that I shouldn't work on my special day. Please remember that I have two very capable wax princesses who will be working next week and will take very good care of your bits.  But if you're shy about who sees your hoo-ha, then please let me know when you want to come in as soon as possible, because the week is filling up fast.
Just a reminder that yours truly will be on The Brother Wease Show (95.1)  talking about
A Promise of Passion at 10 this morning! Feel free to call in if you anything to say about the book, or about anything amusing and hoo-ha-ish...  585-222-9500

Although my hair is fine and thin, it's still there, which is why I wax my legs once a month. It sure beats shaving every couple of days, or even daily. It may not seem like a lot of hair to some of you, but I know I heard wolves howling in the wind for me.

Saturday, May 7, 2016

Last night I was at Barnes & Nobles talking about The Happy Hoo-Ha Trilogy and A Promise of Passion.  I am truly humbled by every person who has taken the time to read anything I've written. I am feeling a tremendous amount of gratitude this morning.

I woke up this morning and decided to check and see if there were any more reviews on Amazon, and this is what I found! Thank you to the woman who wrote this and just made my day!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Full of passion, love, and sex. I couldn't put it down! The rotating between each character's point of view was a very unique spin, which I loved. It was very fun to hear the guy's side of things for once. I can't wait for the next one to come out!

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

I know it's difficult for most of you to imagine what I do for a living, but I truly love my job. Mark & M.E. has brought me so much joy. Do you love your job? Do you even like it? If you don't, maybe you need to look outside the proverbial box and consider a change. Your options are endless. I know that I have spent my career working on a different kind of box, but it sure has been a lot of fun. Open your mind to new possibilities. Dare to take a risk. Who knows...maybe you'll find yourself a box that makes you happy.

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

So far, my new and naughty book is only available at Mark & M.E. and on Amazon.
I promise I will let you know as soon as A Promise of Passion becomes available on Kindle. It should be any day now!!
Anybody still tweet??  I do! I'm a little racy sometimes, so I feel it's important to send a warning with this message. My twitter name is Sassysnatch. Adorable or what? Check it out... if you dare.
Going on the Brother Wease show May 9th at 10am to talk about A Promise of Passion!

Many people have questioned my decision to enter the world of writing fiction. For all of my new followers out there, you may not know that I wasn't always in the beauty industry. Prior to working with Mark, I was an elementary school teacher. Yes, it is hard to believe! I had a much more "G" rated vocabulary back then. I changed careers to work with my husband, and I have never looked back. I like to tell people that I used to teach first grade and now I make women look like first graders all day long. So, now that you know waxing wasn't my first career, it shouldn't surprise you that I have expanded my energies into the writing world. I loved the writing courses I took in school, and it has been a blast putting my storytelling into words. Now, I just have to hope someone likes what I have to say.

Attention: Sex fiends and avid smut readers... A Promise of Passion is the first book in a series that I am working on. If you think you'd enjoy reading about a couple who have a ton of sex, then I'd love for you to check out the book and let me know what you think. I'm really looking forward to getting your feedback on Katie and Bryce's love story (and love making, for that matter!) Your feedback will help me make the subsequent books even better. Thank you!
