Fucking Hell, Man...


I'm done. I turned in two (yes, two) big fucking books this week. Each spilled over 75,000 words. I try not to double-up on my deadlines too often, but somehow I managed to sign twice on this particular dotted line.

Love these books. Love them. The stories are so choice. The writing is slick, sleek, and superlative (that means "good," right?). Once I hear back with final approval, I'll post my TOCs. And I still owe you the contents of 69, the new Harlequin collection due out this summer.

Shortly, I will share my new calls for submissions. Promise. But I need a break, a breather, a big-ass reward. Did someone say boots? I swear, I heard a little whisper right then. Booooots. Like that. You heard it that time, didn't you?

I also want to share a snippet of my own story for the bondage book I just finished. I've been working on the thing for months. (Yes, one of those stories. The ones that eat your dreams, destroy your waking hours, and refuse to bend over and get off.) My first two readers both gave me thumbs (and other body parts) up. In fact, one has become my official "porn tester." You didn't know that was a job title, did you?

Hopefully, tomorrow, when I find my brain.

XXX,
Alison

Amazing Alison! Congrats and as always, on the edge of my seat waiting to read them. Got any ideas what to do while I wait? *grin*

Booooooots. OMG, I think I heard it, too! *_*

By the way, congrats on finishing two big books!

If while out looking for your brain you should find an extra that is in relatively solid and thoroughly kinky condition, please pick it up for me. I'll pay you back, if I can remember...

Hugs,
Donna

I'm so close to being able to post one of the TOCs! Cleis turned around the 1st manuscript in less than a week. Just need two more stories to seal the deal!
