KIDDING! What, are you nuts? DO NOT EVER STOP us in the Hootenanny world o’ freaky fiesta! (Speaking of…HAPPY HANUKKAH!) Here we are, Day 5, and my stars n’ garters, but the elves have already decorated the reindeer and the neighbor’s dog. Which is fine, because the dog likes the elves and the tinsel they make her wear every year. The neighbors put up with it because the elves bake really good brownies and they’re quite generous with those.

And, of course, the egg nog. Which the elves generally like to make themselves, but sometimes they go out on supply runs for a certain kind of ‘nog, especially if it’s getting late. They prefer to make their batches in the morning, but they keep a stash on hand of ready-made.

(hint: “Frosty the Snowman” [in case it wasn’t really obvious])

Frosty the bookman was a well-read happy…

I’m a big proponent of writing about strong women in my books. I have sixty-five published works now. All but two are what I’d consider Lesbian Fiction.

If you have found your way to this blog post by doing a Google search that looks something like this – “[Author] [Book title] Free download” – well, let me tell you, friend, you have come to the wrong blog.

What you are doing is partaking in piracy. And it’s illegal. Check the front of just about every book you read and you’ll see the following (or something similar): “All rights reserved. No part of this publication may be reproduced or transmitted in any means, electronic or mechanical, without permission in writing from the publisher.” In other words, don’t give this to a friend. Don’t post this on the internet. Don’t print this out and mass distribute copies.

Just don’t.

Let me repeat: it’s illegal. Not just for those who do the sharing, posting, distributing. If you’re downloading this material and reading…
