This is our artichoke plant. The one that I was warned would lose its artichokes to admittedly gorgeous blossoms if we let it go too long. We (obviously) let it go too long.
We meant to do that…
But that’s not what I’m eating crow about. This week’s topic in the Bordello is: What did you say you’d never do in a book, and then did? Click over to Word Whores to hear my embarrassing story!
Also, I’m teaching an online class in August! 🙂

First off, I have a short story out in the world! Pearl marked the beginning of my attempts at speculative fiction. It was published in Aeon magazine, back in Spring 2008. My editor at Aeon, Bridget McKenna, is starting her own business doing ebook covers, formatting and design. She contacted me and offered to produce Pearl, to build her portfolio. I think she did a great job! So here it is, one of my early efforts, for just 99 cents at Amazon and B&N. It’s a sci fi story, with a lot of sexual tension, but not really a romance. Fair warning!
A bit of an addendum, Bridget wrote up her side of the story, too, which is really interesting.
Then, since today is the second Monday in the Rogue’s Pawn giveaway…
the winner is….
Yay Amy! I will sign and send a PAPER COPY of Rogue’s Pawn for you! If anyone else wants to try for one of the remaining three copies, the rules are here. Join in the fun and obtain a RARE hard copy of this book!
Hi folks. Robot Jeffe here. Yes, that’s totally what I look like.
Hopefully I look tanned and rested – but I’m still winging back from the Caribbean today. But, thanks to interwebs magic, you can visit me over at Word Whores for my Sunday sermon on why I write genre.
Short answer? Because I love it.
Can I get an amen on that?
