And yes, I STILL panic every time I do it. I'd rather write with a synopsis. Hell, I'd rather write someone else's synopsis.
(FYI, that wasn't an invitation to bribery. I have enough to do sweating and panicking all on my own.)

No wonder I hurt today.
So. Things on my t0-do list today: figure out a way to rework a book and enter it in a contest; start Worth Fighting For, because Ben and Dave are my next project; take pain meds so my hands stop screaming at me and my back goes off strike; and... ding seventy-nine. I have some interview questions to answer for another author, but I'm putting that off for today. I'm not sure how much work I'll be able to get done until the pain meds kick in.
Gotta love arthritis. One week you're kicking ass and taking names, the next your ass is the one getting kicked.
At least Norwegian Wood is done at 79k. How about that? The vegetarian vampire is out of my head!

Anyway. Mating Games is available today, and I wanted to make sure that a post went live about it while I was gone (and I figured out how to do a scheduled post with Blogger while I was playing around... sweet!)

Claiming your mate? Best. Game. Ever.
Emma’s loved Max for years, but to him she was invisible. Now she’s in business—and out of her shell. Max returns home to become the Halle Pride’s Alpha, and he finds Emma has blossomed into—his mate! Taking her out for a bite ensures she’ll be his. But first she must convince the Pride she has what it takes…
Getting attacked by some she-devil wasn’t part of Becky’s plans when she agreed to attend a masquerade. In a few slashing moments, she learns things about the man she loves that she never suspected. When Simon rescues Becky from one of his Pride, he finally confirms that she’s his mate. Carrying her off gives him the chance to mark her as his. But a strange illness threatens to turn their sweet dreams into a nightmare.
Cat of a Different Color
Adrian has friends, a thriving business, and the occasional Saturday night date. Life is good. Until Sheri hits town. Sheri knows Adrian is her mate, but she’s running from an ex who’s got the teeth to take whatever he wants. With Adrian by her side, though, she might just survive—if he doesn’t become lunch…
Warning: This title contains a hot blond Alpha, his tall, dark and handsome Beta, and a Puma willing to do whatever it takes to protect his mate.

"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?
