It seemed like 2011 went by fast but maybe it's just me. I am looking forward to 2012, for the chance to have the spotless year of making no mistakes. We'll see. Everyone keep stopping by, checking in with me, and telling me what you think. Like I said, I can't thank you all enough.:)

Heart In Hand didn't win at TRR (winners), Stormy Glenn's Air Demon did, (she won in two categories, very awesome), so congrats to her and all the winning authors. I wanted to thank everyone who voted for me, it means the world to me.
That's it for now, hope everyone is having an awesome weekend. I have to get a Christmas tree because my son is ready for it to start looking festive at our house. Can I just say how much it never feels like Christmas in Hawaii? But we're going after my husband's done watching his alma mater, the University of Kentucky hopefully annihilate Indiana. They really need to win, the moping if they don't will not make for a fun afternoon. :)

Here's the blurb:
Malic Sunden is in hell—only not literally... yet. As a warder, Malic is used to fighting demons and squaring off against all kinds of creatures from the pit, but this year he’s facing a new and terrifying prospect: Christmas holidays with his much-younger boyfriend and his family.
He loves Dylan, his hearth, but Dylan’s parents, the Shaws, are another story. They think Malic is a cradle-robber, among other things. At least their neighbor, Brad, seems to like him. Then again, maybe not. When Malic gets offered to a demon who wipes his memory of everything but Dylan’s name, it will take all Malic has to escape his new life in a hell dimension and return to the man he calls home
Update: The link is up and the novella is on the DSP website!

Advent Calendar from Dreamspinner and I just love it. This is the cover for my Christmas story ,
What Can Be, that right now is part of a set but on December 1st, goes on sale individually. This my blurb:
Thirteen years ago, Eli went on a summer trip with his mother and never came back. Now, existing in a new life as Jacob Somerville, he’s again running from fear and memories, only to end up where he started. As Jacob struggles to reconnect with his father and brothers, he realizes that his lover, Craig Zhao, was the only thing filling his empty heart and standing between him and ghosts of the past. It will take the power of love—from his family, from Craig, and from himself—for Jacob to see that his life truly is filled with the promise of what can be.

"I feel like I'm forgetting something," I said, sitting there, wondering what it could be.
"Hat?" He offered brightly. "Broomstick?"
Yeah. He's a frickin' riot.
So obviously he thinks it's my power month because his wife is a witch and not the cool Wiccan kind but replace the "w" with a "b" kind. Whatever. The point is, I love October and now, 4 days into the bleh of November, I already miss it. Of course November has Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, but still, I miss the month where I just know in the depths of my soul that every little thing will be all right. Who else has got a power month?

Can I just say how awesome Yaoi-Con was? I picked up all 5 books of In These Words from Jo Chen, (does anyone know if 6 is out or when it will be out?), and Father Figure and Cruel To Be Kind. I also got another of those sleeve things and a Tiger and Bunny pin and postcard and a Buffy and Xander poster for Amy's daughter...and Jo Chen is awesome, she is kind and sweet and it's always like the best thing ever when people you admire turn out to be fabulous. She signed everything for me. Like Hamlet Machine, I was the first one in line to pre-order Chapter 2 in paperback. And she was super. I have a tote bag and a keychain and Chapter One in paperback and a print and stickers...just squeeee! I went all fangirl on her, hopefully she wasn't scared. The lovely Clare London went with me, both of us ducking away from the Dreamspinner table just for a bit. We went upstairs to see Jo Chen together too. Clare is wonderful by the way but I'm sure everyone knows that.
I realized I had everything from Teahouse that I wanted, (I ordered the comics and prints online), but I did get a key-chain. And then there were books to buy, lots of manga and print copies from DSP authors I love. Paperbacks make me happy. If I love a book, I will have it in print and getting them signed is thrilling. The best part of the con though is seeing friends, making new ones, meeting fans and rooming with Amy Lane. We have the best time. I love Yaoi-Con, I cannot wait to go next year.
I saw Ariel Tachna, Nicki Bennett, Andrew Grey, TC Blue, Lori Toland (it was her birthday!), Clare London, Shira Anthony, Pearl Love, EM Lynley, Julianne Bentley, Rhys Ford, Rowan McBride and of course Amy who I dragged to Starbuck's with me. So awesome that the Marriott had a Starbuck's in it. I know how Galahad felt when he found the grail.

A Celebration of Male Beauty & Passion in Anime & Manga
Yaoi-Con 2011 will take place October 21st through 23, 2011 at The San Francisco Airport Marriott hotel in Burlingame, California.
So I'm so excited I can barely stand it. Not only do I get to go buy more Yaoi, (which there is so much of in my house at this point that it's insane), but I also get to see my fellow DSP authors and hang out with my buddy Amy Lane, (seriously counting the hours until I get to see her), meet Lori Toland for the first time, gush over Andrew Grey and fangirl Ariel Tachna and Nicki Bennett. So excited! Jo Chen is going to be there so I'm psyched. Last year I bought a print that she signed that sits above my writing desk and this year I'm gonna buy her book of prints if I can get there before they run out. Also, Hamlet Machine is going to be there so I have to get Chapter One of Starfighter and pre-order Chapter Two. Seriously, I'm stupid with excitement at this point. Best part of all, last year I got to meet my own fans and sign some of my books and give away my bookmarks. Awesome. So please, if anyone is going to be at the convention this weekend, please stop by and visit me at the Dreamspinner table. If I'm not there, I'll be right back, I'm just buying... something. The Dreamspinner table was across from the DMP table last year, yeah, not good. I might need a bigger suitcase.

Marcus Roth is a top criminal lawyer by day and demon-slaying warder by night, but he is simply one of five warders—not really important to anyone but Joseph Locke, his hearth. Or so Marcus mistakenly believes.
On a trip to Lexington, Kentucky, to celebrate Joe’s grandfather’s birthday, that belief changes as Marcus unwittingly uncovers a paranormal dilemma and ends up revealing his identity as a warder to Joe’s family. Faced with a traitor, demons, and the return of an old enemy, Marcus must put his own needs aside to save his friends—though in so doing he may lose the man he loves forever. Even living through the ordeal might not be enough if Marcus can’t forgive himself and learn that his hearth and the rest of his clutch can’t do without him.
I hope you all enjoy the last book. Well, there is Malic and Dylan's Christmas story but it's not part of the series.
