Holy Smokes Batman!!!!

WOW – see below.

You Want Blood Awards

Love me

Oh they do, Eric.  They seriously do…

You guys seriously rock the nomination ballots!!

We actually got through them all already.  This shocked us too.  Thanks to all that sent in information to me, it helped.  And that whole mention to my own readers of being well read in the fandom helping?  Oh my.  It really does!!!!

But we have an issue.  You know that top ten idea we had to make sure you weren’t overwhelmed?  Well it seems we have alot of ties to fill in the last of the fields.  We talked about it ourselves, and since one or more of us are often in the category, we decided to allow you guys to make that decision.  It is only fair.

So what our wonderful 4Padfoot is doing right now is putting together a vote for you guys to decide who will be filling in the blanks we…

ATTENTION ALL WORDPRESS WRITERS!!!

Hi all – check it out!

Fang meets Fairy and other encounters

attention wp writers

Attention WP writers, betas (and readers/enthusiasts). After much discussion on the state of our beloved TB/SVM fandom and some hints from readers here or there we feel there could be a better way to direct traffic away from ff. net, which with its creeps on PM, hateful guest reviews and random bigotry has left us all disenchanted and on occasion has stalled the motivation to write. We feel there should be one site that allows an easy overview of what the different WP writers have to offer as a better alternative to the dreaded ff. net and hopefully invigorate our slightly waning fandom. At the moment a lot of writers have a blog roll on their own page that will direct you to the different blogs, initiate spotlights or make recommendations but despite that for most readers transitioning from ff. net to WP it’s a difficult place to navigate and…

This post brought to you by the letter G, for GUILT

I hate that I haven’t been around and posting much.  Hence the GUILT (I’m Catholic, guilt chip installed at birth, remember?).  So – you’re getting this one early (and I hope it doesn’t come back to bite me if I run out of chapters later).

Before the chapter though, I have another Christmas story.  If you read my posts, you will recall that I turned into my mother and the evidence was that I forgot to GIVE someone a gift that I purchased.  WELL . . . I’m packing lunches this morning and I turn to my youngest.

Me:  “Where is your new lunch pail?”

Her:  “What new lunch pail”

Me:  “The one with the daisies and your name embroidered on it.”

Her:  blank stare

Yes – it was still in the present hiding place.  OY!

Now that you indulged me with my story about me, how about a chapter about Eric and Sookie????

It’s NOT BETA’d.  It contains a surprise for MistressJess – you’ll probably be able to figure it out (if you read my posts and not just my chapters).

OH – and in all the holiday madness, I forgot to give shout out again to Sephrenia and The Queen of All That is Delicious for the images and help with all the next and previous page links.  THANK YOU LADIES!

OOOPS – Chapter 21  -click on the image:Bald-Eagle-pink-blue-sunset-SILH-YL8X0890-Homer,-Alaska

Happy New Year – and a SURPRISE

Hope your first day of the new year has been great!  I enjoyed a low-key gathering last night then slept til 10:30 this morning.  After making and cleaning up from brunch, I essentially took the day off (as it evidenced by my butt shaped dent in the couch).

So – I have a confession before your surprise; actually the confession IS the surprise.  An E/S from what was formerly a one-shot have been speaking to me.  You see, I had a mini-epilogue written for them, but it was never completed – nor did I have the ‘glue’ that moved us from the one-shot to the epilogue.  Today, I give you chapter 2 and the epilogue rolled into one.  Rough – again with posting on a holiday – I haven’t had this reviewed.

It’s been a while since I posted the one-shot – so you might want to start there.

Until It’s Gone – Chapter 1 – Revelations

Or – if you remember these guys, go directly here:

Until It’s Gone – Chapter 2 – Happy

What’s next?  I know you want more of Scar – but there’s another Eric (and Hunter, and Sookie and Frannie) that have been screaming at me.  You see, I wasn’t done with Beauty and the Vampire Beast.  The final few bits of the story are yet to be told.  I’m planning to take down the tree and write tomorrow – we’ll see who talks the loudest.

Wishing you a great 2015!

Merry Christmas – How ’bout a chapter for a present?

How about TWO at once????

They are not beta’d (hey, when you finish writing on Christmas you don’t send it out for review).  SO they are both ROUGH!  Read and cringe.

For giggles first:  I realized today that I have become my mother (and that’s not a bad thing).  I was cleaning up from unwrapping gifts and I had this “I’m missing something” feeling.  I was.  Under the spare bed I had left a box, unwrapped, with one of my kid’s gifts.  My mother did that EVERY year.  I still miss her.

Now – here are your chapters – the first includes Thanksgiving (at this rate, I’ll post Christmas when we are celebrating St. Patty’s day  – but oh well.

Chapter 19 – Thankful

Next – we go to one of my favorite places on earth:  Homer Alaska.  I’m going again this summer (third visit).

Chapter 20 – Homer, not Simpson

Hope to get back to my regular posting schedule once the holiday crazies are over.

PS:  Favorite present for me?  My older daughter picked out a bracelet (Wind and Fire) with a Yggdrasil charm on it (Norse/Tree of life).  She actually listens to me!!

THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

Mags, where have you been? (not a chapter)

HERE! Completing this:
Winner-2014-Web-Banner

So – I finished the story I need for National Novel Writing Month – but alas, the story isn’t fully told (You know me, I can’t keep something to 14 chapters) – so It’s likely to be a trilogy.  I’ve also procured an editor (Don’t know if I can put the name here), and someday I may actually publish.

In the interim, the clothing, dishes, dust everything has been piling up while I took on the NaNoWriMo challenge.  It was worth it though – I have my first original novel done (and it’s a hot mess) and waiting for work.

What’s this mean for my current story Scar?  Well, I haven’t touched in about two weeks.  I do have the latest chapter back from my beta, MistressJessica, but I haven’t incorporated her comments.  We’ll see if I can get that done in the next day or so.  THEN  –  it’ll be a break because I’m inserting a new chapter after the next one – and it’s not done.  OY.  Hang in there folks – I’ll get this done.  I hate stories that were left hanging – so you’ll get this one finished!

Hope to be back soon!
