The last post sparked two email conversations about cats. Y’all know the Silver clan has just-shy of too many cats. So I said hey, let’s do a “Meet The Cats” segment.
Here’s the first feline stationary long enough this morning to photograph: This is Beezer. She’s five. She came to us as a stray, and life has never been the same since. Many of you will be familiar with the type—will look you dead in the eye while knocking shit off your desk, but will also come hide in your lap because reasons. Also known as the informer child of the cat crew. If Wilson (the dog) has gone out but wants back in, this cat will yell her head off until one of the human staff opens the door.
She is also the family murder machine. Pretty sure other of our cats would allow mice and bugs to march straight across their eyeballs. Not this one. She is the killer queen. Or just the queen, period.
Celebrating a new release with…. wait for it…
an ear infection!
Because apparently, I’m three years old.
Okay, now that the self-pity is out of the way, let’s do some algorithm management. (AKA shameless begging)
Please take a moment to review a title today. The cat demands it.
Amazon US is live!
Kobo is also live.
Barnes & Noble is still processing.
Have a great day!
All complimentary contest-win episodes have been sent out. Check your Kindles or your inboxes.
If you did not receive your season-pass copies and you think your Kindle email might have changed, please email me as soon as possible so I can re-send.
(That said, I will be gone much of tomorrow in meetings. That’s why I’m rushing to get all this sent out tonight; I’m not sure how much I’ll be around to take care of y’all.)
Most retailers take a while. I will check again in the morning and do a release day post once we’ve got some actual links to share.
Okay, so, remember in the last post how I said, “if everything goes as planned”?
Yeah. Not so much. Day-job has some issues with personal space.
I was going to hurry and try to upload tonight, but this episode just isn’t ready yet. I’m shooting for very, very late Thursday night or Friday afternoon. That way, at least we’ll have Overcome up for the weekend.
I’m sorry it couldn’t be sooner, but I’d rather take the time to do all the usual polish passes instead of skimping.
To make up for it, here’s the excerpt a couple days early.
See you this weekend!
Sorry about that last deleted post. I’m trying to clean up some stuff on the website, and sometimes I forget that I have no heckin’ idea what I’m doing.
Episode 15 is out with the beta team. If everything goes to plan*, we’ll have a new release within the next week or two.
Here’s the episode description:
Episode 15: In high demand as a performer and stalking expert, Sophie navigates a busy, pleasure-packed week at Fantasy Heights. Unexpected visitors shake things up between Sophie and Ben. Thomas, meanwhile, turns his creative problem-solving skills onto a personal problem.
Here’s what I bought myself as a treat for finishing the episode. Good stuff.
Otherwise, I have a terribly exciting day planned, including laundry, kitchen cleaning, watching all three Star Trek movies just because I can, and also working on something new and fun for the email subscribers. That’s a super hush-hush secret I’m not supposed to talk about. So subtle.
*Why do I say that shit out loud? It’s like I’m just asking for it, right?
Heads up on this little bargain, courtesy of Bookbub:
JD Robb: Naked In Death for 1.99
Also, a bit of silliness to aid the very brain-fried:
Name your favorite rock song with epic drums. (I need to edit something in the episode because apparently no one but me listens to Dream Theater.) Comments or email. Either will do.
I’m on “vacation” from the day job this week. Note the ironic-usage quotes around “vacation”. I’m spending the week getting Episode 15 ready for the beta team.
That means we have until Friday for new (and old) beta readers to sign up using the new form. We’ve still got plenty of room at the table, so don’t be shy.
Now, who wants to write this episode’s promo copy for me? Anyone? Anyone?
