Oh, you guys. Still as hilarious as ever. ^^

And Margo: SQUEEEE!! :D That is so awesome and I'm so glad the pen name is kicking so many asses all at once. ^^ Congrats!

A cautionary tale about squeeing: Just had someone I know squee about incredible sales on a forum (of bitter people) that shall remain nameless. Sudden influx of negative reviews, all phrased with terminology generally used only by writers. It's sad when you've got something to share, something that others should see as encouraging, as proof that they can succeed too, but you have to hold back because someone will try to throw rocks.

Bitter people suck.

Writer's Forums can be supportive and sort of brutal at the same time.

Forums often start off feeling like a cozy campfire then they get so big that it feels weird being totally personal. I joined this forum almost two years ago and it had a better feel back then. Still pretty nice to drop in but the amount of heartfelt feedback and high-fives has definitely dropped off. All that said, this is still a nice place thanks to Somer and some core folks. Warm Vegas with some writers sounds good but taking five minutes to listen to music in the car in the Walgreens parking lot is all the vacation I get nowadays.

Lots to Squeee about around here including a new Boss born last Friday, and a very good chance at a T:V appearance in January to talk about my book. :)

Ryan--congrats on the new boss! :)

Margo--that totally sucks to hear that WRITERS (of all people!) went and pissed on this other writer's parade w/negative reviews. How hard is it to keep your jealousy to yourself?

Charlee--Claudie's right: congrats on the huge milestone!

Yesterday the very first printed edition of my little baby, Crystal Shade has arrived, four weeks earlier than as I estimated. She looks so beautiful, even on these low resolution cellular photos. Check it out! :)

Yep. I'm so proud for "Junior". And the readers also like it, just as they like the story itself. In the meantime I got an offer from a Spanish publisher as they're interested in the Spanish rights and today I also got my very first paycheck for Crystal Shade. So, today is a double squee! :)

Junior is going to get a small display cabinet soon, and I'm going to take my very-very-very first $1 bill near her. This is what I always wanted and dreamt of. :)

Didn't get as much done in January as I'd hoped but did break 5000 sales.
