A Story for Tamlyn

Author's Note:  I'm posting because it's my birthday and I can.  And I really kind of thought I had posted this somewhere, but I guess not since I can't find it.  Here we have Faye telling her story to Tam.

A Story for TamlynCollapse )
I am totally hooked on Ruby Dixon's Ice Planet Barbarians series.  It's an erotic romance set in a stranded-on-an-alien-world with exotic aliens kind of thing.  Her aliens have horns, tails, and are covered in suede-like blue fur (can you understand my fascination?)  Her writing is of a much higher caliber than most of the authors I've sampled in this genre and I haven't run into any glaring errors in her science or her world building -- which makes me very happy.   Her books are professionally edited, without the multiple grammar issues per page you often find in this category. She's also pretty darn prolific -- another plus in my book!

(If you're not an Amazon reader already -- you can read on any device capable of installing the app or even on your PC.)

Here's the link to the Amazon listing.

I also recommend subscribing to the Bookbub service that sends free and low cost reading suggestions to your inbox based on the preferences you've listed.  I've found some great reads through them.  Not so much with the other services I've tried.  And they give you links to all the major retailers that are offering that deal.

Like a Phoenix from the ashes...

Well, not really.  I just realized it's been so long that my page looks like it's been abandoned and that last post was just depressing.  So hey there cyber-world!  I'm still kicking around, just too busy and too tired to be very creative.  Halloween is just around the corner.  Happy New Year!  If you don't get it, just enjoy the candy.  *giggle*  My favorite holiday.  Woot!
I'm sure I was a total pain in the ass but hubby has finally finished my Mutant Sue portrait.  It's also been added to his Deviant Art page.  Here it is:
Take a peek...Collapse )

Merry Belated X-Mas Nan!

Hubby just finished Nan's gift last night.  He'll be uploading the collection to his Deviantart page soon.  He hasn't started Morgan's portrait yet, he's got another project he's working on right now, so it'll be a while.  But here's a peek at Catseye:

Belated Christmas/Yule Gifts Con't...

Hubby's been working hard and he's finished one more pic.  I think you'll recognize her....
Take a look!Collapse )
Now that ladydeathfaerie and sessys_fangirl have had a chance to "open" their gifts, I've decided to post them here for the time being. Daz's still remains in progress (about 60% finished, give or take) and I'm afraid Nan's and mine haven't been started yet.  I'm restricting this post to just us, though I'm not sure how the new album function works.  The artist (my hubby) would prefer not to distribute full sized images outside our little group for now.  So if you share where people might be able to snag it, downsize the images a bit if working from the original files, please.  I've had to downsize these just to make them fit the page.  He will eventually put the collection up on his Deviant Art page once it's finished.
Merry Christmas/Yule!Collapse )

Update/Shameless Plug.

(Yup.  Again.  You're probably gonna get sick of these posts before all is said and done.  I'm sure I will.)

Update:  Largespawn's surgery is scheduled for Nov. 8 (or so I'm told.)  I haven't been given more instructions that that at this point.  He's doing fine, but driving us crazy.  The boy really, really needs to go back to school.  He is completely lacking in time management skills (or maybe lacking in caring about them) so hubby, myself, and the tutor sent by the school system are all pretty frustrated with him.  Middlespawn's birthday is the 12th and we were planning a party on this Sunday.  Unfortunately, so were several other children who run in the same circles, so we're pushing it back until after hubby's B-day (Oct. 18).  Little man has his heart on having some of his friends come, so we're gonna try.  Little Bit is deep into the terrible twos and keeping us hopping.  

Shameless Plug:  Get 'em while they're hot!  This week, and probably next week, we're selling off some Amazing Spiderman issues.  Last week's sale wasn't great, but was definitely better than the first.  This week tops both already.  As of a few minutes ago, two of the nine lots up were purchased as "Buy it now."  And hubby had someone email him trying to talk him into selling the whole lot off Ebay -- which of course we refused.  We did suggest we might be talked into putting whatever didn't sell this time up as a single lot for him to purchase through Ebay.  We'll see about that.
Minor update:  Largespawn is healing well from his surgery, I think.  We see the docs again on Friday to check his progress.  We're still expecting a second surgery to do a skin graft.  (He's got an open wound where the end of his big toe used to be -- there wasn't enough skin to close.)

Shameless Plug:  In the meantime, we're continuing to try to liquidate some of my comic collection on Ebay to help us catch up with all the medical bills and miscellaneous expenses resulting from Largespawn's medical crisis.  The first batch did not sell well, but the second is up and is hopefully a more salable lot of books.  These are all Web of Spiderman issues for sale on Ebay.  Again, hubby is handling most of it, since he's got more experience with Ebay and already had an account set up.

Shameless Plug -- Comics for sale on Ebay.

In an effort to try to recoup some of the costs of Largespawn's medical care and other expenses, I am selling off part of my collection. The first batch of comic books (Spectacular Spiderman) have been listed.  Hubby is handling most of it, as he's already set up on Ebay.  Here's the link to his profile:  Hubby's Ebay Profile.
