Monday Mayhem – Bunny Cage Edition

Been crazy busy lately. That’s no excuse for neglecting you, but it’s the only reason I have. I would have asked my mom to write me a note, but then she would want to be privy to the secrets I plan to expose. I guess I’ll just have to forge one. Not that I ever did that… Or mastered her signature….

Ahem. Sorry. Here we go…

Please excuse Margaret’s absence from her blog she has been:

1) Taking up three spaces on the TMP Bestseller list for 8/5/12! Okay, so you may only see two titles with my name on them.

*cough* Don’t tell my mother. *cough*

You’ll have to use your super-detective skills to figure out the third one. For those of you who know my naughty alter-ego…shh!

2) Her inner vixen has busted loose and taken over the works! Almost all of the stories I’ve written so far will be published under that other name, but there are a few Margaret works in the pipeline. I have two of six new Jack and Ellie stories completed for 2013’s Long Distance Love collection written, and the plot bunnies for Containment—the third piece in the Contentment/Commitment trilogy—are running rampant in my head. NaNoWriMo is coming up in a couple of months, so I’m trying to get other things out of the way so I can focus my thirty days and nights of literary abandon on Containment.

3) But with her Evil Twin in control, some big things have been happening. Wow things. Check it out!
› Her story, Portrait of Passion, was chosen to be a part of TMPs Passionate Exhibitions anthology coming in October 2012!
› She has a new series of steaming hot novellas coming soon. Very soon! Turquoise Morning Press will begin releasing the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series in late 2012-2013. These sexy stories all center on the men and women of St. Blaise, Missouri, a blip-on-the-map town where the release of the hospital’s new fundraising calendar sets the nights aflame.
› There may be a sexy fireman short story under submission for a Cleis Press anthology.
› And last, but certainly a big squee, a contract is coming from another publisher for SIX short stories to be included in the Love Letters Anthologies! This is a project she has been working on with fellow erotic romance authors Ginny Glass, Emily Cale, and Christina Thacher.
Whew. Have you figured out who she is yet? Want a hint? Her name may or may not be pretty derivative of my own. Take a look at the TMP Top 15 again. I’ll wait here.

4) Okay, enough about me… or her… us. Whatever. Let’s talk about other things. Did you see that my friend, Evelyn Jules’ first short story released? Blind Faith is now available all over the place. If you want a quick shot of smuff (fluffy smut, for those who aren’t in the know) do not miss this sexy read!

5) Oh! And I’m going to be a grandma. Yes, you are right. I am too young and hot to be a grandma, but what are you going to do? These kids… Squeeeeee!

Okay, that’s all the news that’s fit to line the bunny cage. How about you? Any big things, wow things going on in your life? Little things that just make you smile are just as good. It’s your turn to share!

  1. Okay, wow things? I’ll do travel wow things.

    My son travels to London on Thursday to watch the Olympics. How cool is that?
    My granddaughter travels the road to turning 1 years old on Sept 2nd (I know that’s a stretch for the travel theme)
    End of this month I travel to our favorite camping spot for the last three day camp of the summer/year
    Feb, I will travel to Atlanta (least that’s the rumor) to see my girls. It will be the 5th year of this crazy ride with them.
    June, the family will travel to Hawaii to see my nephew renew his vows. (It will be his 1st anniversary and this will be for the entire family to be able to witness the wedding.
    I think that’s it for now.

    Oh, and your wow things are very wow indeed.

  2. Those are some wow things indeed, Laurie! So jealous of your son. One day I hope to get to see some of the Olympic games. Oh, and I’ll be stowing away in your suitcase for Hawaii. 🙂

  3. Wowwwwwwwwww! Congrats! Congrats! Congrats! So happy for you and all your exciting news! Next year is gonna be a huge year for you and I’ll be cheering you on the whole way!

    Thank you for mentioning moi. 😀 I can’t believe it’s only been a week since my release. It feels like a month at least. The big things, wow things in my life, besides the writing excitement, is the going back to school thing. One year left at university in the teacher education program. I’m so beyond thrilled because I think I’ll meet my future husband, and I’m pumped to learn the ins and outs of becoming a real-deal physical education/dramatic arts teacher. I’m terrified too because I want to succeed so badly, and sometimes high school students can be scary. Three weeks to go! Eep!

  4. Hooray for Wow Things!

    You have so much in the works, I don’t know how you keep track of it all. Oh wait, I bet you have a spreadsheet!

    I applied for a promotion at work, just waiting for the interview to be scheduled. I think I have a good chance, but of course no guarantee.
    In September, I may be going to San Francisco for a family weekend, and if so, will try to squeeze in a visit with Laurie.
    Next February – hopefully the annual girlie trip
    Next July – Scotland with Lady Michelle!
