But, my reward for writing my Nano minimum was that I got to sleep in today, and it turned into a nice, rainy, bond with the kids sort of day.
I didn’t expect it to be, but ZoomBoy came with me to the vets to chip the furry judgmental bastard the he calls his cat, and Squish came with me to walk the dogs and get waffles, and generally I got to spend nice moments with each kid.
ZoomBoy got to be proud of Dewey at the vets–and how he wore a cat treat as a hat to the amusement of our Bannfield peeps, and Squish and I walked in a landscape made pretty by rain–but not when it was actually raining.
Unexpectedly lovely, I know.
Of course, I got back and my to-do list had grown and grown and grown!
But that won’t change the fact that Squishy looks just lovely as we take a breath on the bench. She was so funny– it started raining as we left to walk the dogs and I asked if she wanted to wait. “No–because this way I get to use my new umbrella!”
And a very pretty umbrella it is too!
So that’s it for my day, but I’m going to leave you with two things–
One is the blurb and the link for Regret Me Not–which is up for presale.
And the other is the blurb and the promise of Bobby Green, which will be out in Feb.
May the joy of fall be with you!

Group Admin Vern Roberts couldn’t wait to turn eighteen and get the hell out of Dogpatch, California. But city living is expensive, and he’s damned desperate when Dex from Johnnies spots him bussing tables.
As “Bobby,” he’s a natural at gay porn. Soon he’s surrounded by hot guys and sex for the taking, but it’s not just his girlfriend back in Dogpatch—or her blackmailing brother—that keeps him from taking it. It’s the sweet guy who held the lights for his first solo scene, who showed him decency, kindness, and a smile.
Reg Williams likes to think he’s too stupid to realize what a shitty hand life dealt him, but Bobby knows better. What Reg lacks in family, opportunity, education, and money, he makes up for in heart. One fumbling step at a time, they connect, not just in their hearts but in their bodies, where sex that’s not on camera, casual, or meaningless, becomes the most important thing in the world.
But Reg is hampered by an inescapable family burden, and he and Bobby will never fly unless he can find a way to manage it. Can he break the painful link to his unrealized childhood and grow into the love Bobby wants to give?
