I am home from Dragon*Con and I have to say, I had the time of my life. I’m also more sore than I thought possible. My feet ache! I walked miles and miles but if you look at where I was during the day, you’d see I was never further than a 6 block area. Which is hysterical when I think of how many stairs, escalators, and sidewalks I’ve trod on over the weekend. But I can honestly say that even the agony I suffered in the feet was worth being at Dragon Con this year. I got to meet people I’ve known online for years! Seeing Kayelle Allen and Kiernan Kelly in person was fantastic! Sascha Illyvich in person was definitely an experience not for the faint-hearted. I also met Stella Price as well.  (more…)

I will be attending Dragon Con in Atlanta this year! I’m thrilled because I’ll also be on four panels as well. *grins* Go me! I’ll be there with some of your favourite people and mine talking about epublishing and more. So come and seek me out! Want to know where I’ll be? 

http://eff.dragoncon.org/2012-tentative-schedule/  Check out the schedule and you can find my name in the list for workshops on Fri, Sat, Sun and Mon– 10pm for Fri and Sat, 4pm for Sun and 1pm for Monday.

Can’t wait to have some fun and celebrate my birthday!

Gods, I’ve been working hard and at the same time, feeling like I’ve been hardly working. I’ve been doing edits (which seem to take forever!) and at the same time, working towards getting some of my older books ready to be released by self publishing. That’s not an easy process- but one I’m excited to do. It means I’ve got some control for myself in that I can take the time to make the stories how I want- Go me! LOL

I also prepped myself for DragonCon! The list of people going there is just astonishing this year! I can’t wait. John Barrowman! Eve Myles! Adam West! Nichelle Nichols! Patrick Stewart! Jamie Bamber! Gods save me now! I must just keel over in happiness! This is a huge incentive for me to not only stick to my diet and eating right, but also to walk more and do what I need to do to be healthy! Go me!

The writing is getting there. I’ve changed in the way I look at my writing. More importantly, my writing has shifted– a lot. This isn’t a bad thing– but it is a thing. But I’m working hard to get my writing out there now, because I’ve found what I want and need to be happy again. I’ve also decided, since I’ve gotten engaged– when I do write my full fantasy and mystery books, I will write under the pen name of Cynnara Jean. This will honour both my mom and my male. *grins* Yes, sometimes it’s good to be me!

So thank you, the reader, the fellow author and my friends. Thank you for being there and just being by my side as I traverse this weird road of learning how to write again and learning how to be me again. It’s not easy and it’s not something I’d recommend for everyone. But for me, it’s a way back to happiness– something I’ve needed for a long long time.

This often isn’t an issue with men, but with women– watch out! There’s something about a kiss that can bring a group of women to their knees. At the same time, there’s the whole rating of what makes a kiss good, better and GREAT. (What, you thought we didn’t? Silly men!) In fact, women rate kisses a lot. We even rate kisses between men too. Some of our favourite kisses are between two men. One of my favourite is the one between Captain Jack Harkness and Captain John on Torchwood’s “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” episode. Can we say it’s just damn hot?! More importantly, it has many many of the necessary aspects that make a kiss hot.  (more…)
