Sick Days and Kittens

Why do I always get sick this time of year? Everyone in my family seems to have some bug or other. My mother was complaining of a sore throat, I've got the sniffles and a fever and worst of all, my BIL actually went to the doctor. Voluntarily! (Prepare for the Apocalypse. The end times, they are a'comin.)

Yesterday, I got the kids off to school and told Dusty I wasn't feeling well. I took what I thought would be a nap. At two p.m. I woke up, still feeling like I could sleep some more. Needless to say, writing did not happen. I'm feeling a little more awake today so I'm hoping to get something done before I lay down, but this week will be slow going for those of you watching my word count meters. 

I've had a couple of email inquiries about a release date for Howl for Me. No word from my publisher yet, but I promise I'll post it once I know. I've also had people ask if I'm planning on doing more M/M. Howl for Me is M/M, but until I see whether or not you all want more M/M I'm putting it on the back burner. Besides, the next four books I've got in my brain (Julian and Cyn, the Hob and Mikayla, Stern and Rabi, and Dragos and Mina) are all M/F. Perhaps when I'm done I'll set up a poll. If I get enough votes for a M/M story I'll add one.

Oh! On a happier note, we got a kitten! No name for him yet (I'm leaning towards Wheeler, because the squeaky wheel gets the grease and damn this cat does nothing but). He goes to his first vet's appointment today. Wanna see?

I hope you feel better soon!

Can't wait for the Howl For Me release date so I can pre-order it and count down the days. This is one of my favorite series. :D

M/M stories are my guilty pleasure. I've discovered a lot of new authors this year, several from your website (thanks for that). :D

Awww, what a cute little kitten.

Does Samhain know that some of us our bouncing on the balls of our feet waiting for Howl For Me? Looking forward to reading it. Really.
Hope you are feeling better soon, cute!! Feel free to post more kitty pics as time goes on.

*LOL* I'm looking forward to Howl For Me (hm, so does this mean Fenris is the father of all werewolves? *hehe*) I love all kinds of stories including M/M - as long as the story catches my interest (or subject for non-fiction) I'll read it. I will confess my guilty pleasure usually is the Poly stories like M/M/F. It's probably why Very Much Alive is one of my faves. Anyway, I love your kitten. I have a cat too which my mom aptly named Princess Sasha. *lol* I might have to come kitten sit :P
