Hi, y'all! Well, Mom is in Ohio, and I've missed her since I left her at the airport. I HATE goodbyes, and I totally suck at them, whether it's a goodbye like that, or ending a phone call, texts, etc. I just bumble it every freaking time.
Amber has a job-- go, Amber!-- so I have babysitting duty 5 days a week. I'm writing, though. I did mention I wrote another Power short, and shared that. I'll finish Planets up in the next couple of days; I was sick last week, then the trip with Mom, and writing the short for Pride; had to prioritize. But Planets is getting finished this week. Oh! Naomi made me a cover! It's dark, but considering one character has gray fur, and the other two have pitch black skin, shades of gray etc. was the best we could come up with. I think she did a fabulous job:
After I finish Planets this week, I'll finish revising Mr. January into a shifter story (that's the Calendar blog story I wrote maybe a year ago?) and that's going to be offered to Pride first, and if they don't accept it, I'll self-pub. I need to see which way garners more sales, because I have to earn a living. No one likes discussing money-- it's crass or whatever?-- but I discuss everything. I don't like shame, and shame is used to keep people from discussing too many important topics-- health, sexuality, mental illness, STD's, money, dreams, mistakes, fears, etc. For that matter, Naomi has suggested I put ads on my blog, because we need to bring in more income. So that might happen, I don't know. If it does, and you don't like the ads, ignore them, please.
Re the blog story, I know y'all want to know what kind of special creature Draven is, and we'll get there. It'll be a few more installments, because I want to cover their limited time together first. I want us to have fun and enjoy this story, the sex, mild angst, and romance! Because I don't know about y'all, but I need some of that in my life, and it's all only going to happen in fiction lolol : D
I'd best get my butt in gear and get ready for the kids to get here. I hope y'all have a fabulous day, and remember:
You are loved. You are amazing. You are valuable. You are worth everything. You can make a difference in your life, and in other peoples' lives. You matter.
