Been a while…

So it seems I’ve been up to my old tricks of forgetting to send out the word about new chapters.

I’m sorry.

alex arm pumpBefore I get to the chapter links, I need to take a minute to brag about the Fangie Awards… This is all just an excuse to let myself get excited about it all over again. I’m honored, and proud, and I appreciate every. fucking. vote! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I should have posted this last week, but my timing doesn’t reflect any bit of how flabbergasted I am by how much y’all seem to enjoy the MultiVerse!

Seriously, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.


Now that I’m finished with my gushing, on to the chaps…

I wrote a short little one-shot ficlet in the same spirit as Salt In The Wound. It’s just a joke, folks.

Alex-Eric-alexander-skarsgard-27995405-450-300I’m very sorry…

I did experience a major dry spell recently, but there have been six new chapters since the last time I visited your email’s inbox.


Is 36 too young to start loosing ones memory?

Does the eye candy soften the blow at all?


BratPack news: EricIzMine’s BratPack has an astounding 454 members, but  some people have their security settings set so high there isn’t a way for a non-friend to contact them, so if you go a couple of days without hearing from us after you submit a request to join, pipe up- send a message or friend request. 😀

FangReader Awards: The polls are now open and I’m very excited/honored to have been nominated for several! Please, take the time to swing by the polls and place your votes. The lovely ladies over at FangReaders put a ton of effort into the yearly ceremonies, so show them some love while you’re there. 🙂

Real life: Chaos. Utter and complete chaos. As it stands with all of the confusion and distractions, my mind is fried. Writing is still my escape, but I don’t know from one minute to the next what I’ll be able to focus on. I’m sorry if I’m neglecting one or all of your favorites, but I’m trying. Really. I swear.

I just want to hug y’all!

I’m awed that you guys visit me so often when I can’t even get my kids to listen to anything I say. 😉

Thanks so much for still coming around…



Just… wow.


Anyway… I’m giddy all over myself and rambling about site stats while y’all could be reading…

Here ya go…

In The Dark*

*Not a typo… It’s really back.

Chapter 22: Priorities







Folks, I’m sorry to say that my life is completely crazy at the moment. On top of the RL chaos, the husband just switched jobs (no more Navy) and since we’re living in Navy housing, we’ve been frantically searching for a new house. Houses aren’t too hard to find in this area (plenty of rentals), but the problem is finding somewhere big enough for a family of eight.

John signed a lease today though (finally) so things are about to get a little more insane while we pack the house and actually relocate. I’m still writing when I can, but I’m so scatterbrained right now, it’s not coming as easy as it used to…

I’m crazy forgetful anyway, but I’m so bad right now that I’m forgetting to post about new chapters and teasers. I’m really sorry and I’m dying to get back on track… I miss my brain. We used to be really close.

I hope y’all can hang in there for the next month or so while you’re waiting for you to get my shit together.

So, if you find yourself curious about a new chapter, you might want to cruise over to WP and check, just in case I brainfarted and forgot to send the alert…

Like I did for the last two chapters.


Nuclear Winter

Chapter 14: Bitch

Chapter 15: Buzz Kill

and the newest one just posted…

Chapter 16: A Little Hope




Happy Monday all!

Business first, I suppose…

There are new links living in the margins…

The BratPack link is there. Founded by Brats for Brats, it’s a private FB group so nothing posts to our Walls or Timelines… We observe a No-Holds-Barred attitude there and we have a lot of fun.


Another set of links is for Amazon. I’ve just joined their affiliate program, so any time you link to Amazon from my site and make a purchase, I receive a bonus. 😀


Now… on to the entertainment portion of the message…

After several angsty chapters of Nuclear Winter and Euro Pass, I offer a reprieve.


Chapter 6: T R O U B L E





F*@!ING BANDWIDTH!!! And all that implies…

Thanks to MetroCast and their general ineptitude, I barely managed to upload last night’s chapter without pulling out my hair.

Which makes this the perfect time to plug the BRATPACK over on FaceBook… I managed to maintain just enough signal that they knew the new chapter was ready and waiting.
They were reading it at 10.

So… Not so quickly… but I’ll do my best because I have errands to run and you have a chapter that’s been getting cold for hours.


Lyndel Turner, Cassey Kadesh, Leah Price and Melissa Carson have been busting their phenomenal asses to put together some MultiVerse reference materials…

They’ve archived and designed and toiled and… well, you get it. You have no idea how many vente coffees and ePapercuts these ladies conquered to put it all together, but it’s ready and waiting…


It’s beautiful, girls! Your time and energy were well spent! Thanks!


If you got a giggle or two out of the pics along the side of the the post, I thought I’d invite you all to contribute your own art to the soon-to-be WALL OF SHAME.

I know a lot of y’all love the jokes/slams/jibes/pranks… You aren’t alone. We (when I say ‘we’, I mean the Bratpack) have been snorting our drinks since Rheya Kelvin gave us her McMerlotte masterpiece.


Your chapter…

It has some of those ‘links to nowhere’ again… the dialogue is in Dutch, but if you hover your cursor over it, you see the English translation (not that you’ll need it- I’m sure you can guess).

Nuclear Winter

Chapter 4: Good Riddance



Then review…

Then go check out the MVGuide…

Then fire up your Photoshop and put together a little memento of your fave shame-scene.
