    When I first started posting, I barely understood how the GA community functioned and it took me a while to realize I should respond in some way to most reviews. On older stories when I get a random comment out of the blue—especially when I'm not actively posting—I sometimes miss them. Thanks for enjoying LM. It has it's issues for being a first story, but it means a lot to me.

      May the wrestling involve lots of muscle bears.

  3. Salvaging Claus Day!!!

    I came up with Filo out of the blue as a variation of Milo and Luz's name came out of a Spanish name generator I found online. Who knew I'd found names that fit my characters' roles so well?
  4. Salvaging Claus Day!!!

    I know! I wish I could take the credit. The lovely artists at Dreamspinner cooked this up for all the authors involved in the advent calendar. I'm so thrilled to be part of it.
  5. Salvaging Claus Day!!!

    Want to know what I've been up to recently? My first offering with Dreamspinner Press under my new publishing pen name J. Alan Veerkamp is now available! Welcome to my sci-fi holiday short story, Salvaging Claus Day, part of the Dreamspinner Press 2017 Stocking Stuffer Holiday Anthology! Blurb: For three years, Filo has reveled in silence and solitude as the sole occupant of a space station, where he maintains the communication satellite. Everything changes with the appearance of Luz Espina’s lifepod. Filo shares many interests with the flirtatious Luz, though Filo’s isolation has strained his communication skills. Still, Luz pushes all his buttons… and reminds him of the last man he was attracted to—an attraction that ended in disaster because the man was straight. When Luz learns Filo has never celebrated a holiday, he vows to cobble together a Claus Day celebration for them to share. But is it merely a friendly gesture… or something more? This story is sold exclusively on my J. Alan Veerkamp author page via Dreamspinner Press. Click this link and get your copy at Dreamspinner Press here!

    Congratulations, Headstall! It's nice to see you joining the ranks after all your hard work. Well done!
  7. I just spent the entire evening roaming on social media doing nothing after I forgot what I got online for in the first place. **headdesk**

    It may be time for bed...

      Just did something similar except it was Amazon. 😤

  8. Ok my peeps! Pick your brains time: I need a conservative, sensible car for a character to drive who is an assistant bank manager. (In other words, not rich.) Nothing too flashy. He would choose a vehicle for function. Something a truck driving guy would be embarrassed to be in, but nothing too effeminate. (He's athletic and straight-laced, but no nonsense.)

      I would go with Honda Accord, too, or Toyota Camry or Corolla. If he is one who would only "buy American", the Ford equivalent (I can never keep the names straight).

      The Honda Accord wins by a slight margin over the Ford Focus with bonus points given over it not being an "American" car. It was close. Sensible and conservative with a reasonable price tag. Thank you all for your input! :D

  13. July C S R Feature: Reece's Choice by Renee Stevens

    Great choice! Renee deserves the attention!
  14. Ask An Author #50

    I love these features, especially when I'm in them. Not to nitpick, but the cover I designed was for Renee Stevens rather than Cia, although I'd be happy to make something up for her in the future if she needed.
  15. New Contract

    Yay! My sci-fi series including: The Luxorian Fugitive, A Cook's Tale, and Priest & Pariahs is getting a new home with NineStar Press! Details to come soon...
