Today is the last day of the sale for Two Lips, Indifferent Red. It's 70% off!

a polk in the eye of the owners of LJ

As I’ve mentioned on FB, this year is a big birthday for me. I’ll be 39. No, seriously. Would I lie to you? Once again, I’ll be 39. (Actually, I’ve been 39 for the past 31 years. *cough )

Okay, having said that, I’m offering a sale on 1/5 from JMS Books. Destiny’s End and The Most Loved of All, the first two books of my Strange, Strange World series are available at the JMS website for 25% off. “Wait,” you say. “That isn’t much of a sale for such a big birthday.” Ah, but there’s more! If you don’t have either of these books, buy Destiny’s End, and you’ll get The Most Loved of All free!

So come on down to JMS Books and celebrate with me!

And wait! There's more! I'm blogging at Dawn's Reading Nook. Stop by and read what I have to say about writing, family, and... writing. ;-)

Wishing engarian a very happy birthday!

It's been a long time, a very long time, since I wrote fanfiction. I don't know why all of a sudden I decided I needed to write the sequel to In Any Way, In Every Way, but I did. I'm reading over Sigh No More hopefully one last time... I am a chronic fiddler... but I should have this up on my site soon, as well as AO3. I'll post a link here once I'm happy with it.

According to my profile, I've been on LJ since June 5, 2002. I've enjoyed my time here, although over the years the posts (both mine and my friends) have become fewer and fewer. Some, I see, haven't been updated since 2014.

This morning, I attempted to access LJ only to discover I needed to agree to the new terms of service if I wanted to read anything. I knew Russia was somehow involved with LJ, but reading the terms of service disturbed me, and I don't feel I can remain on Live Journal.

If you'd like to look me up, I'm Tinnean on Dreamwidth and Tinnean on FaceBook. I know, no imagination.

I plan to leave this journal open. There are too many entries to simply delete it. But I'd like to say goodbye to the people who I've enjoyed having as friends. In no particular order:

engarian
scottynola
wolfsbride
kouros3
skargasm
elayna88
severina2001
kendermouse
nanuk_dain
anne_barwell
lisa_thecat
toscas_kiss
missfaeagain
mentalhygiene

gem225 and pattrose, I'll either see you on Dreamwidth or FB.

Time does fly

Today is the release day for Home Before Sundown, and JMS Books will have it on sale this entire week. (And no, this isn't an April Fool's joke. *snicker*) Also, it's available on KU.

I first began working on this back in 2012, and it was supposed to be about a... (wait for it!)... cross-dressing cowboy. My, my, how things did change! The cross dressing aspect is still there, but not in as much of a degree as I'd originally intended.

wolfsbride was so kind as to send me a copy of The Examiner 100th Anniversary for research. Unfortunately, I didn't wind up using Independence, MO as much as I'd intended. However, I'm glad I was finally able to finish the book.

It will be a while before I get to Home's companion piece, Two for Home. These are the chapters I had to remove because with them, the book would have gone to about 120k, but I do intend to get that out before the end of the year. *fingers crossed*

At this point, I'm tied up with Complications By the Number, which should have been Book 5 of Mann of My Dreams, but You Were Made for Me was driving me so crazy I decided to combine the two books. Most of it is done, and I just need to add Quinn's POV of Wills and Theo's wedding and Mark's visit with his cousin, which can be read here. Oh, and Mark finds out more about the kid, who was first introduced in the chapter Black Coffee.

So anyway, I'll have to finish this before I get back to Two for Home. ;-)

Blogging today about Home Before Sundown at RJ Jones.

While April 1 is the release day, Home Before Sundown is available for preorder at JMS Books and is on sale.

Blurb:

George Pettigrew and his papa must leave the California rancho they'd lived on since his birth. They end up in New York City, where Papa marries and George gets a new beloved mama. George also meets Frank and Bart who become fast friends, and in Bart's case, even more.

The start of the Civil War leaves George the man of the family, but although he’s found a job, it’s difficult to pay the ever-increasing rent. Then Papa dies at Appomattox and Mama falls ill.

After Mama dies, her father takes George’s siblings. When George learns his younger sister is being abused, he rescues the three children. But will dressing his sisters as boys and himself as a woman be enough of a disguise to keep them safe until they can reach the valley he’s dreamed of? Will Bart leave behind his own family and go with the man he loves?

Come by and read the exclusive excerpt!
