I’m just going to leave this here. I need to do more research on this.
So today is Release Day. Dirty Secret is out to the masses for accolades and rotten tomatoes. Strangely enough, there’s really nothing I can do at this point. I had a small panic attack that I spelled chigae wrong last night but I checked the text and it’s okay. You can also spell it jjigae but that’s a quibble.
Nope, nothing to do but make coffee, bleed the cat so I can see how his levels are and reek of mackerel. It’s what Tam’s decided he wants to eat today. Yoshi is stalking his leftovers and the dogs are patiently waiting to go apeshit over the mail man in a couple of hours.
All in a day.
I keep saying thank you. Well, I mean it. Thank you. Pretty much thank you. Yep, I am a wordsmith.
There are a few giveaways going on. The Novel Approach has one for both ebooks and I’ll be doing a paperback giveaway on Goodreads.
Once again, the word of these getting out to the general m/m reading public has been your doing.
You all are the ones buying and reading the books. I just write them. Dreamspinner has graciously published them… I owe them a huge thank you as well but really when it’s all said and done, these books are yours. You make them happen and I am forever grateful for that.
Now if I could just stop smelling like mackerel, I’d be delighted.
But honestly, I’m working on Dirty Laundry. And a pint of coconut flan ice cream. What are you all doing?
I’ve done multiple blog posts and an interview. I’ve been scheduled for a talk and have had guests at the house for dinners, visiting and coffee. Life’s been full.
But more importantly, I have to remember ONE thing about today…and tomorrow.
To say thank you to everyone here. I owe you everything. Thank you. Many cookies, cupcakes and many cups of love.
Thank you. From the bottom of my heart and the top of my keyboard.
Which has cat hair all over it but it’s the thought that counts.
I’m hosting a GoodReads chat on Saturday, September 29th at 11 am PST (2 pm EST). It’s supposed to last two hours. Come keep me company. Ask zany questions! I’ll tell you stories about growing up in an insane family that intermarries way too much and overdose on coffee!
Taking some pretty Korean boys with me.
Neko has decided that sitting behind me is the proper application of writer’s cat today. Go figure.
So much going on. Had dinner with the estimable Amy Lane last night. We had Thai and talked about books, writing and the youtube series, Husbands. Stole her back to the house where I fed her green tea Kit Kats, Victorian sponge cookies and Reese’s peanut butter cup ice cream. Her oldest daughter will be going to art school near me so I’ve offered to have cabin (my house) serve as a waypoint if she needs anything. Wonderful family. Sadly, Amy had to head back home or I would have stolen her longer.
Ah, so… Dirty Secret. So much going on.
First review is out at Pants Off reviews. Lovely comments. I am so thankful for them.
There is a Giveaway for Dirty Kiss and Dirty Secret at The Novel Approach. Go enter! Win a book! Or two! *grins*
Lastly, I will be hosting / participating a chat on DSP’s Goodread’s site. It will be this Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm PST. Come keep me company!
Postscript: Tam’s doing okay. His numbers are a bit high but he got thrown out of whack this weekend. Off schedule. He’s back on sked and quite active. Still mad at me for poking him. He is currently sitting by the red velvet chair and scolding me for something.
So… yeah. Four days till Dirty Secret.
I’m the guy tossing my nuts and bolts.
Made gumbo for my friend from Singapore.
Most of you probably are beginning to wonder what’s in my CD case. Or in my media player. Well, actually a pretty wide range of music but when I write the Dirty series, it’s Korean. Okay sometimes VAST and BMRC but mostly… Korean.
And by now, you all know of my love for G-Dragon…and his group, Big Bang.
Well, GD’s got another mini-album out. I’ve already shared two of the videos. Here is the third. I love this boy. He’s insane.
