Win Signed Copies and Other Things because I'm a year older!!

So, it was my birthday the weekend before last and I fully intended to do something lovely for my readers to celebrate. But then I ended up pretty much just enjoying my birthday and didn't get around to it. And then work happened, and then I went away for more birthday shenanigans...needless to say, no prize draw happened.

Instead, you'll just have to put up with a post-birthday-post-unbirthday extravaganza of goodies!!

Signed paperback copies of both Home Is Where You Are and Returning Home, some of the bits and pieces that I had in the UK Meet swag bag, plus bonus Curly Wurly...and maybe some other things if I can get them ready in time for posting.

The draw will last from 12am - 4 Oct to 12am - 8 Oct GMT and I'll announce the winner on Sunday!

Any New Yorkers able to help me with a little location scouting? Google Earth is being a shitbag and I may start screaming if I have to look at it's stupid face anymore. I figured maybe I should just ask you all before I start ripping my flesh from my bones : )

Slight spoilers for the Xmas story )

Also, if you fancy beta reading with a specific eye for all things big and appley, that would be lovely.

Week 53

Me talking about my *feelings* )

Me talking about the tattoo...and *feelings* )

Anyway...it's looking pretty dark and angry right now, but it's going to settle down into light sepia eventually. It's weird how I feel like I was walking around with something missing for so long, and now I'm complete. It's a nice way to start the new year : )

Actual picture here : ) )

So, as you may or may not know, my inbox is generally a mess. Hundreds and hundreds of comments and messages. The only person that is annoyed by this more than me is [livejournal.com profile] somersault_j : )

In fact, she was so annoyed by it that she threatened that should I ever get it down to zero, she would write the Big Bang story that we have been talking about for the last two years.


In a effort to start the new year afresh, as a gift to my Darling Somer, who is one of the best, most pervert people I know, and as a gift to the rest of us once the Big Bang season comes around ; )...I present to you...my empty inbox.

I'm going to spend the next couple of weeks scrolling back through my posts to try to catch any comments that need replies that I've missed but the inbox is technically and officially empty...

*except I just heard a notification bong...I bet you anything that's Milly!! : )

...and if you have sent me a question that I haven't answered, please do message me again. One of the reasons I decided to do this was I noticed comments coming in, but the number on my inbox staying the same, so it has been deleting messages that I was keeping to reply to.

I'm determined to keep on top of this in the coming year, and I know Somer will do her best to keep me in line. She has ways and means.

It's beautiful : )

Anyway. Love your faces!!!

OMG I just finished the last commission of the year, which means I am DONE! I have mailing to do but otherwise that's it! \0/

I'm feeling crazy positive about next year, health, writing and art-wise, so I just can't wait to clear the decks, do the festive thing and then get on with it!!

In the meantime : ) ...snaffled from everyone...

- Post a list of 10 of your favourite fandoms. (I don't think I have ten so here's...some)
- Have your friends list guess your favourite character(s) and pairing(s) from each fandom.

1. Supernatural - 8 characters, 2 pairings.
2. Teen Wolf - 6 characters, 1 pairing, 1 threesome
3. The Blacklist - 6 characters, 2 pairings.
4. Sherlock/Elementary (I like them both, shut up) - 6 characters, 1 pairing.
5. MCU - 7 characters, 2 pairings

Totally excited to go do some housework now!! : ) xxx

Just a quickie.

A few people have asked me for my address for Xmas cards. If you've already written it out and put it in an envelope, let me know and I'll do that tonight.

If you haven't, instead...the next time you're out shopping would you drop the money that you would have spent on a card and postage in a charity tin? I don't mind what...a local animal shelter, food bank, Doctors Without Borders...whatever (except The Salvation Army. They actively turn away LGBTQ so I'd rather not). Then you can tell me about it, and that way we can both get the warm fuzzies about doing something nice, and even though it's only a few pennies, it will do some practical good, as well as saving a ten-thousanth of a tree : )

Does that sound okay? It's my Festive wish.

Hope everyone's Season is Merry so far. I had a very lovely time yesterday in London. There was tinsel and everything : ) Now I have just got a week to get everything done before I get whisked away! Crikey.

Love your sparkly faces!! xxx

After being introduced to the wonderfully creepy Folger incest coffee commercial, it now doesn't seem like Christmas without it. This extended version is just fantastic!

"We sent you to West Africa for a reason, Ryan!"


Happy Festivus, Everyone xx

Last call for addresses.

Yes, I'm this disorganized... )

Also, if anyone else wants a little something and a non-festive card, pm me your address, favourite colour and if you don't accept leather before tomorrow night (GMT)

Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend : ) xxx

So, today has been rather nice!

I won a thing!

This is 100% down to [livejournal.com profile] wings128 who I made the thing for, and I have a sneaking suspicion may have nominated me (Actually...I have no idea! Did you?!) So, that was rather awesome.

And it's no surprise to me that so many of my flisties are on the winners rostrum, coz you guys are just wonderful and so, so talented. Congratulations to everyone : )

And then wings...again!!...posted a lovely rec of my Halloween fic! I wasn't sure anyone would read the weird little thing, so for her to make a post about it is super fucking special to me. Thank you so much, Darling : ) Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] somersault_j too, for making me post it in the first place : )

And then...Lily, who has been super, super sick with kennel cough, actually hasn't coughed at all today and there's been minimal snottage too! \0/ Which is super awesome as I have a hospital appointment on Tuesday and she has to be well enough to go to daycare.

And theeeen, I got to see my neice (not really my neice but the connection is too complicated to explain so henceforth...neice) in the park and she was adorable!! She even let me hold her, despite her going through a super clingy period right now, so that was lovely.

Also, last night for Halloween I watched Hellboy, which I haven't seen in ages and it was fun! I forgot how much fun it was.
And then I read The Tutor by Bonnie Dee...

...which is fucking fantastic! An m/m gothic romance, in which a guy fakes his way into becoming a tutor for twin boys living in a drafty mansion, with their grief-stricken, and coincidentally, handsome father. I really enjoyed it. The writing is fantastic, and the story is brilliant. Dont be fooled by the "Sound of Music/Secret Garden" comparison in the description. It's a ghost story – more Woman in Black than Jane Eyre if you ask me. I genuinely got the shivers at a couple of points...and not just coz of the sexytimes either! : ) But anyway. Not a waste of pennies. I shall definitely be reading it again : )

So, that was nice too : )

Let's hope the rest of the week keeps being nice. I could use it! Love your faces xxx

I only managed two drabbles today, I'm afraid. Well, they're not even drabbles as I couldn't keep to the word count. I shall try to do the rest tomorrow...I'll see how my muse doing : )

In the meantime...

31st Dec: [livejournal.com profile] big_heart_june - got any special plans?

Well, last year I had the best time because I spent it with you all! There was booze and silliness and it was just wonderful being with everyone despite that we were all in different timezones, so that was lovely.

I've always kinda hate New Year (it make me maudlin also see video) but I have to say here, wandering down to the beach at midnight, with everyone wrapped up warm, sitting around campfires or wandering about wishing each other Happy New Year, and then setting off fireworks at midnight, that you can see happening for miles around the coastline...that's really nice. Not dog-friendly so I've had to pass the last three years but, yeah, really nice.

This year though I fear I maybe boozeless, plus feeling super tired all the time right now so my plan is to stay up as long as I can but I expect I shall lame it and fall asleep far too soon.

But hey : ) xx
