All Free--but not all me!
Okay--I've mentioned this before, but I didn't realize then that the e-book for Wishing on a Blue Star would be TOTALLY free! Again, if you just want to read my story, it's right there on my website, but if you want a free e-book, with lots of great writers, and a really strong message about strength and joy, well, yanno... free?
And this was a surprise--this is an impromptu Christmas anthology calledStuff My Stocking. Now see, this was sort of a Christmas game on goodreads.com, in the m/m romance forum. The Moderatrix had people find pictures, and they put them out on the forum, with an invitation to the authors on the forum (you'll see there are a number of us) to choose a picture and write a short bit of fiction to it. I wrote in the Green's Hill world, and you'll se an uncomfortably pregnant Cory there, but mostly, it's all written to a picture of a handcuffed elf. Well, I had to set that little guy free, and then Green had to heal his wounds, and... well, we all know how Green heals.
Oh yeah--and don't forget the VERY short Deacon/Crick interlude added the free stories on Goodreads.com on my author page.
Anyway, yesterday's blogpost is NOT translating to goodreads.com-- I don't know why that is, but this sort of thing sort of ticks me off. For one thing, I can't figure out how to reboot that whole idea. For another, I saved that picture of Spongebob special!
And I will leave you with this--Chicken came home upset because she had to pick a song for the character George Wilson from the Great Gatsby. I gave her three choices--the River or Atlantic City, both by Bruce Springsteen, or this song:
She chose Mumford & Sons--but we need to find a clean version on iTunes, because she doesn't think the teacher's going to buy that she didn't know 'fook' was Aussie for 'fuck'. Either way, she makes me proud--and we both REALLY love that band now!
