Psst! Hey, you! Yeah - You!

Hey, y'all! 

It's been a minute, huh?

So 2020 happened. I've been hanging out in my hermit hole since last March. Seriously. I left my house maybe 15 times last year - mostly to pick up prescriptions.  Ah, the glamorous life of a writer!

Last year, we lost my father-in-law, my brother-in-law and his wife, and my sister-in-law had a stroke. We also lost my beloved Lolly cat. Y'all knew her as the fuzzy, Resting Bitch Face Queen of my Instagram account. She ended up with a prolapsed rectum, which, all heartache aside, was honestly one of the most bizarre sights I've ever seen - and I worked in a veterinarian clinic for 10 years. Really - Google that shit. I'll wait.....

............ RIGHT?! Oh, I probably should've told you to search specifically for cats, huh? Oops!


My sister contracted Covid and survived it. Our mom, however, was not so lucky. She passed from complications on January 21st 2021, around 9 PM. Y'all know we weren't on good terms, but it's still hard, regardless.  For anyone else trying to navigate the death of an abusive parent, I feel you. 

In more positive news - I'm still writing!! (If you didn't sing that to the tune of Elton's I'm Still Standing, I'm deeply disappointed in you.)

I'm currently working on a behemoth of a WIP titled "Kintsugi." It's a contemporary m/m romance with none of my usual kinks. Okay, maybe there's one or two kinks, but they're small. LOL Right now it's sitting at just over 80K words. I know, I know! I never write books that long! This one has a mind of its own and it just won't quit! I'm in the second round of edits, and the additions keep on rolling. Pray for me, y'all.

I'm also still working on some fanfic dribbles for my AO3 account. 

My ancient laptop, Applestiel, gave up on me last year, and I'm finally replacing it this week. I look forward to a long, happy life with Applstiel: The Second Comming. So, so many meanings.... LOL

My plan is to start blogging more for y'all. Right now, I'm typing this on a tablet and it's THE. MOST. ANNOYING. THING. EVER.

Seriously - why is the damn space bar right above the Home button????? Who designed this thing?

That's all for now! See y'all soon!!!!
