Holy Shit!

Holy Shit!

Alright all…

I am overwhelmed!

When I posted that I was ‘hiring’ new betas, I received 106 emails from volunteers.


Of the 106 of the those who volunteered, only 21 were available to beta any/all of the stories I’m currently working on… Since I’m naturally *blonde (*prone to spontaneous idiocy) I used that to help trim down the selection.

When I sent out the latest chapter of Meanwhile to them all, 14 sets of Beta notes were returned…

My Beta thanks for this chapter go to (in no particular order)

  • Magic_101
  • Chiisai-kitty
  • Tina
  • Nichole
  • NewUserNameSVM1
  • MistressLaila
  • NorthWoman
  • GaijinVamp
  • Bev
  • BroughPS
  • MyUniverse
  • Mandy
  • AuroraMorningstar
  • MDQuilter

Like I said, I’m overwhelmed. I was actually worried that I’d have a hard time finding someone willing to work with me.

I’m in the process of whittling the abundant mass of helpfulness to a more manageable number, I’m thinking 3 since I’m pretty sure Rolling Stone doesn’t have 21 editors, but I have to thank everyone who volunteered.

Now, with all that being said and done, Meanwhile #22 should be surgically perfect, technically speaking.

Because I didn’t have a beta (or maybe just a brain) at the time, I forgot to post the picture of Sookie’s ring in Meanwhile. The picture was made way back when I ‘made’ Eric’s ring, so it really was just an oversight. For anyone interested, it’s been added in line with the chapter (#20).


So here it is, thanks to a metric ass ton of endlessly appreciated assistance…


Chapter 22: Freedom

  1. Yeah most prolly just wanted to read your chapters earlier. I would have offered but my punctuation is really crap.

  2. See I knew my reasoning wasn’t altruisitic so I decided to be good and allow the people who are way better with grammatical knowledge offer. You’d think being married to an English major and growing up with a mother who is also an English major I would be able to help, but I always just used them. Glad you got so many offers of help though and thanks for the update. I’ve been going through withdrawl from your stories. I think some of us really need to have an Ericizmine support group for days you don’t post.

  3. Betas schmetas. What about the hit count?! Less than four thousand to go ’til you roll over a million!

  4. Oh, Hell!! I didn’t realize that you were looking for Betas! If I had known, I definitely would have volunteered. I just finished reading “Dead Tired” and “Dead Sexy”, and was wondering if you even had a Beta. I wanted to email you or leave a comment to say I would happily volunteer to go through the stories & correct the spelling and punctuation. You’re such an amazingly talented writer, however; you must have an editor to help along the way!

    I love your stories, no matter the way how they’re presented. I’ll keep reading!
