I told you it was going to be quieter around here, eh?
No worries, everything is fine. I’m just enjoying some down time after a hectic holiday season that started with Thanksgiving and ended with… oh wait, it isn’t over yet! Well in that case, I’m stealing a few moments for myself in the midst of this hullabaloo.
(I’m also resisting a silly urge to redesign this site, and wishing I had the talent to turn even the most boring day into a good story.)
Anyhoot, while I go off to read my friend’s awesome work-in-progress (and work on my own!!) please enjoy these links:
- First, a reminder: 100% of my December proceeds will be donated to the It Gets Better Project. To purchase either Twenty-Somewhere or “The Eraser” in support of this cause, please visit Amazon, the iTunes bookstore, or Smashwords.

Sadly there are no screenings in my area, but if I were in LA, NYC, Austin, or Madison (Wisconsin? seriously?) I would totally go check it out.
