Days of Chaos and Kleenix

Well, it looks like I'm finally back online for real. Sadly, the virus that infected my computer was pretty terminal, we ended up having to reformat the hard drive or something like that. All I know is that it cost me nearly a hundred bucks and I'm slowly putting all my printer drivers, software, etc, back into the system. It's my PC and is used exclusively online, so I don't keep my writing on it...thank goodness! You notice there's no picture with this post? (I did back up most of my stuff to disk...)

So while all this is going on, my niece gets sick...she's very fragile, so a cold can have her out of school for weeks. A couple weeks ago we had a couple emergency room visits, so we're watching her very closely. Of course, the rest of us end up getting sick, and who gets to be the nurse? Yeah...goodie. I'm the only able bodied person in the vicinity.

All four of my Siberian girls are in heat...That just adds to the fun.

So...what's the good news? Lots, really. Just had to get the moaning and groaning out of the way. So...The final installment of Bad Angels releases at Changeling Press at the end of the month. I'm hammering out the edits right now. The title is Bad Angels: Heaven. I'm also getting ready to send in "Educating Evangeline" which is a novella that is part of the Doms of Dark Haven anthology that will release at Loose Id in May. Like BDSM? Well, my co-authors are the inimitable Cherise Sinclair and Sierra Cartwright! I can't believe that I'm writing with such amazing authors! Of course, I can't just write a BDSM novella, it's gotta have werewolves! LOL! Werewolves make awesome Doms! This story is set in the same universe as Toxic.

I'll be heading out to New Orleans this Thursday for the EPIC convention. Belle Starr was a finalist and true to my luck, if I skip it, I'll win! LOL! Plus, its my birthday that weekend...what better excuse to go have fun? My competition is wonderful, and I'm honored simply to have made the finals.

April 1 in Norwescon in Seattle. I haven't committed to it yet, but it looks fun. Anyone planning on going?

April/May I'll be at RT. I'll be doing a panel on marketing with Dakota Cassidy, Michelle Bardsley, Lacey Savage, and Treva Harte. How'd I manage to end up with such elevated company? (I promised them chocolate! LOL!) If you're at RT, be sure to come by!

So that's the immediate news. When I get back from NOLA, I'll be diving into the Uncommon Whore sequel, which is tentatively titled, "A Beautiful Man" and is from Griffin's point of view. I'm also just about finished with "The Nameless" which is the sequel to Belle Starr. This is Cali Polis' story.

Happy early birthday! Hope you enjoy your trip to Nawleans, and I hope you win, too.

Gee, on my birthday I'm in class from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m., isn't that special? Oh well, there's a big party on the 6th for Dino's birthday, and I'm going to that, so I'll celebrate there.

LOL! I'm sure it'll be a hoot, and I do wish you were going to be there! Oh well, you'll have a blast at Dino's party, he doesn't have to know that you're hijacking it for your own nefarious purposes! :)
