I might fail this month for the headcanon challenge. Too much real life going on at the moment. But there's something else to share instead--the Bugs and Hisses Free Fiction event over at the DSP blog!

I'm happy to say I got to be a contributor to this endeavor. I'm even happier to say I finally got to write my ghost story! So, if you're interested in a bit of spooky, supernatural, and sweet, check it out:

And wish me luck with my headcanon... I'm gonna need it.

It's dark at six o'clock and people won't shut up about pumpkin spice lattes.

Happy fall!

So it occurred to me that I forgot to compile the answers to the scavenger hunt and the secret blog posts they were found in. Then it occurred to me that I forgot to write about YaoiCon! To be fair I was on vacation until the 20th, so I am just getting back into the swing of things. Let's catch up.

Warning, silly blog posts up ahead!

Scavenger Hunt Revealed )

As far as YaoiCon went, let me preface by saying I haven't been to a convention of any sort since Fanime 2008. Oh, that was a fantastic year. While I was only able to go to YC for one day, it brought back tons of amazing memories. The fun of cosplay, the living memes, the aching of empty wallets after a few turns through the dealer room. And I am proud to say I was part of it like never before!

I handed out Nutella fudge sea salt cookies in cute bags hand stamped by yours truly. I wish I had thought to take pictures of them. Altogether we gave out 100 cookies and 40 chocolates, with ten free print copies each of Half Past Forever and Foxes Over Flowers, and three grand prizes of Puncture Wounds! We also made some new friends over at the Sublime table and with a couple of Velmas. My cookie-craving, yaoi-loving people, I will be back next year! ♥

That brings me to my final topic for tonight...

PUNCTURE WOUNDS has its official release date!

You can preorder now, and it's available October 15th. So exciting. :3

Alright, that's it from me for now. Look forward to some new things over the next year.

*cleans up remnants of confetti and popped balloons*

That's a wrap on the Birthday Bash, winners will be announced and contacted within the week!

I had a delicious birthday dinner at Izakaya Ginji and finally--FINALLY--understood how sashimi was meant to be. One bite of fresh yellowtail sliced and served to perfection was all it took. Unicorns cried sweet rainbow tears of joy, and a chorus of songbirds carried us up to the heavens. Yes, I tasted divinity that night, and I washed it down with a double shochu-calpico cocktail. Be careful with those, kids, they don't feel like they're doing anything till you stand up.

In other news, I stopped over at ZAM's Sunday Brunch again this weekend. Fittingly, the theme was about desserts. Read on to find out: Are you a pie, tart, cake or trifle?

Warning, will make you hungry.

Wow so many posts this month! It's a little ridiculous.

Happy 7th anniversary to Long and Short Reviews! My post just went live this morning, check it out for an awesomely easy kalua pig recipe, fond memories of Hawaii, and dozens of chances to win anything from Amazon giftcards to author swag packs! Seriously, if you love free things go look at that prize list down below.

Birthday Bash is getting its final touches, just BYOC!

(Yes, bring your own cake.)

Just a quick post to say I've been hosted by the lovely L. Blankenship over at Unicorn Bell! Quick rounds of questioning are fun. Plus there's the first exclusive look at my upcoming novella, including the amazing cover which I love love love.

Also, a pre-announcement announcement... in two weeks' time, all are invited to a fabulous birthday party. Stay tuned for details.

I forgot I only posted this to my twitter. My bad.

ZAM hosts Sunday Brunch every week, and this week I got to answer the burning question: What is the best invention ever, and why? Have a look and share your own thoughts on the matter.

In other news, it's Christmas in July at Dreamspinner Press. All holiday ebooks are on sale all month, and every day three new books are on sale for 99 cents each. Check back on the 21st if you want to snag mine. ;)

This month is still killing me. And my eyes. Sitting in front of two monitors for ten hours at a stretch is not good.

My first foray into blog touring finishes with a bang over at Raine O'Tierney's Hat Party, an interview which I really hope to experience again. I might have to pick a different dachshund next time.

I hope anyone bored enough to wonder who I am has found at least some amusement through this tour. If you're bored right now, here's the tour in full.

And here are some fish you can feed:

I've got two projects in the editing queue to fret over, and two others to plan out, one to start writing. Break over!

At long last, Juicy Bits has arrived!

Actually it's been out for an entire day already, ugh. I promised myself I would be on top of my next release (minds out of the gutter please) and just like last time I missed it. Just too busy today!

Related though, my interview with one of the characters also went live today, check it out here.It's fairly short and hopefully amusing to more than just myself.

I needed to be asleep two hours ago, excuse me.

Finally it begins!

I've never done a blog tour before (why would I need to?) and I have no idea how long they usually are. This was completely unintentional, but it's just a little too easy to find fun blogs to guest on. Find out where I'll be over the next three weeks, and check back here for links!
