Welcome, new readers!

One of the fall-outs from the Clitorides Awards is that I seem to have gained some new readers.

I'm self-centered enough to enjoy this. I hope you enjoy Cindy as well as my other stories.

If you're paging through looking for the gang-bang or the DD tits or the ten-inch dong, sorry... I prefer to write about happy, loving relationships.

One of my detractors (everybody has 'em, I guess) says that I'm a one-trick pony. I could argue, but I won't. It's boy meets girl, connections form, happiness results, sometimes in spite of obstacles like age and laws.

I enjoy tripping around venues I know: engineering, music, a lot of family, everyday life, even academe, and I want my good guys and girls to have dimension and character.

So if that's your bag, welcome. If it's not, then go ahead and try the change of pace.

And as always, comments are solicited.

Thank you! My Horn: Let me toot it!

Clitorides Awards are out. My dear little red-headed Cindy is tied for #2 in Best Romantic Story. For a guy whose writing is just a sideline, that's quite a feat.

Equally impressive to me is that two other stories are in the list in that category: Christina at #6 and Nikki at #9.

Cindy's also #5 in Epic Erotic Story and I came in at #8 for Author of the Year.

Now, let me go tell the muse. Maybe she'll decide to hang around more.

Still alive!

Getting old ain't for pussies!

And work has been nuts. Not BIG nuts, mind you - it's like being stoned to death with popcorn.

I have about 60% of a chapter of Community working, and I have NOT given up writing, but Dorable, my sassy little muse likes quieter, more sane times.

Don't give up. I haven't.

And for those of you who wrote, asking my status, thanks!

Gotchas

More than one reader wrote me to let me know that I had a continuity error in Chapter 41 of Community. I fixed it, I think. Sometimes it's hard to tell, you know.

I know that I'm not the guy who should try to edit his own writing. That's one of the fun things about writing. I do pretty well with spelling and grammar, but I type poorly. Editors catch that.

I sometimes write a little faster than my brain processes the materials in a story, and that's where continuity errors creep in.

For heaven's sake, if you see me treading upon my tallywhacker in these things, let me know.

Since somebody suggested...

A chapter of Community just went to the editor. Should be posted in a couple of days.

Tossed a little twist into the mix.

I want to thank everyone who commented on that last blog post. Several of you said it was the first time you've commented in relation to a bit on SOL, and while all comments are good, some of the comments were VERY good.

I have taken some of the suggestions to heart and will do a few things a little different. Not TOO different, you understand, just some technical issues and story changes. You'll see them in weeks to come.

As always, thanks for reading.
