Reality Check

I spent the long weekend working. Writing, to be specific. I'm working on three stories at once: Mind F*cker, She's Got Balls, and an untitled story. I hope to submit the untitled story to Ellora's Cave this week. I'm most excited about it as I've never written anything quite like it. It involves a male/female plot and shifters. There's an innocence to it which I hope is reflected in the story telling until she finds her way. I'll keep you informed of pending contracts on it.

Mind F*cker has my reader in stitches. Always a good sign.

Have you ever read something which nearly made your eyes bleed it was so bad? I'm having that issue right now. I've seen similar stories published and wondered how. This has that affect on me, nausea. I've read many talented writers who never get a contract and then I read drivel. I believe this one will require some wine to get through.

Note to self: "Mia, send the author flowers. She's about to have a bad day."

Yeah, I don't know how some dickwads get published.

Yeah the "those who want to read me" is cool. The pirating sucks. I'm hoping some of them come to buy next works. We'll see.

DearAuthor and KarenKnowsBest blogs rip those books to shreds. Mean but amusing.
