I did manage to get things done. :)
I’m still waiting on approval from Amazon. Once I get that I’ll put up the official post on my WP site and add it to my store. Hopefully sometime before dinner! :D
…would rather have had that hour of sleep though…
Oh well, it’s almost time to go to work. *shrugs and sighs*
I woke up an hour early and didn’t realize it!
Seriously, I rolled over, looked at the clock and it said 4:05 am.
Note: FOUR oh Five. Not Five. Four!
Thought ‘huh, I have ten minutes before the alarm goes off’ and grabbed my phone so I could scroll through the Supernatural explosion of feels on my dash. *grin*
‘Huh, my alarm hasn’t gone off. That’s strange. I better look at my alarm clock before I go to bed tonight.’
Scrolled for another five minutes, got up, showered, did my hair, came out to wake up my husband and finally, finally, FINALLY registered that it was not yet 5:00am.
I haven’t done this before! I mean, I regularly wake up in the morning, like at 2:00 and 3:30 and 4:35 and 4:55 and then I start scrolling through Tumblr because really, there’s only so much of that you can do before you get annoyed and overtired.
I’ve never just completely mistaken what time it is though.
I predict a day of severely out of sync with the universe and an early bedtime tonight.
What a way to start a morning!
(Though I did have a lovely dream of being an actor on Teen Wolf and having sex with Tyler Posey behind the scenes so it can’t be all bad. XD)
I just finished uploading Sound of Obedience, my next book, to CreateSpace, Amazon and Smashwords. They should be reviewed and approved in the next day or so. Once it’s okay, I’ll link everyone here and elsewhere to it.
It’s my first actual erotica novel so I’m kind of nervous, kind of excited. While there was a little bit of very mild sex in Fitting In, this one starts with smut and continues with it for quite a ways. So, you know, nerves. *wry smile*
Writing was a little low today. I only managed about 1800 words, split between my latest Muirin story and a sequel to Inina’s Blessings of Joy that decided to bite my butt. What can you do when the plot bunnies latch on and refuse to let go? *shrug*
But my eyes are super-tired now so I’m off to bath and bed. Goodnight everyone!
I want to write a quick note to everyone, because this is something I didn’t know, and I really, really wish I had.
A dear friend gave me a lovely bouquet for Mother’s Day. Included among the flowers were a couple of stargazer lilies. You all know what lilies look like, they’re those trumpet-shaped flowers in pink or white or orange, with lots of pollen. If you’re not positive, google “lily” in google image search.
What I didn’t know is that almost all kinds of lilies are deadly to cats. Even a small amount of one will cause massive kidney failure. My cat took a bite out of one of them and now she’s dying. She’s suffered through lethargy, vomiting, and even seizures, and we had no idea what was wrong with her. She’s at the vet now, getting treated, but it’s probably too late, because we weren’t able to get her treatment until the critical initial 18-hour window had passed.
Please, if you have a cat, be very careful about what flowers you bring into your house. Even the pollen from lilies is deadly to cats.
And please, please pass this on. Please.
Reblog for the cat lovers out there! ETA: With independant verification for those who like that.
I had an awesome dream last night, just before it was time to wake up.
I dreamed that the Muirin saga had become so successful that there were Hollywood producers asking me for the movie rights to Daughter of Chaos. And when they tried to smooze me I told them ‘nope, you only get the rights if you sign a contract that says you cast to race.’ Their faces kept falling so dang bad! *laughs*
You see, Daughter of Chaos has precisely two white characters after the first chapter. Just two, Anwyn and Cadfael. The rest are Greek (Iola), and African, South East Asian and mixed African-South East Asian descent (everyone else). So in my dream the producers were spluttering and trying to threaten me but I wasn’t having any of it.
I told them outright ‘I wrote DoC because I heard ‘if you don’t like [not having POC in stories] than write it yourself!’ one too many times.
The really great part of the dream was… I was successful enough (like JK Rowling levels of successful) that I could get that requirement put into the contract. They had to take my terms if they wanted to do the story. I woke up just as someone signed the contract.
Totally unrealistic, I know, but boy that was an awesome dream! It’d be so cool to see DoC made into a movie or TV series. *wistful sigh*
Though where you’d find a 5’ 2” very pale red headed man with about 6’ 9” of bad attitude crammed into him who’d be willing to wear fluffy petticoats and be the damsel in distress I just do not know. *laughs even harder*
Oh well, off to work for me! :D
But I got Sound of Obedience proofread. That means I’m on track to getting it published by Friday. :)
Also got 2100 words written today, so that’s good
But I’m tired and my eyes are crossing so its shower (not bath) and bedtime. Goodnight everyone!
