On Swamp Ass and Etsy Items of Win

I meant to get this post up yesterday, but I was battling this:

in a downtown parking garage, a special kind of hell in the worst heat ever recorded locally. After that, the only creative thoughts one can rub together are If my foot lands askew of my flip-flop, will it be third-degree burns? and Would it mean certain-death to sprint to air-conditioning?

Cliffhanger Books is requesting submissions for paranormal romance shorts. Why the mention here? Aren't we on Thriller Island now? I found this line of the submission call interesting: While paranormal romance authors are generally female, we want story submissions from talented male writers as well. And, if I remember correctly, some Vortexers are paranomal authors of the XY variety who have mentioned writing a bit of hoo-ha into their screams. Deadline: Halloween 2011. FMI.

From Epic Fail's WIN side:

Speaking of time travel...let's go Etsy shopping!

I'm also fairly certain I'm going to start collecting vintage keys.

There's a story in that one.

Have a great day, everyone!

One of Lana's photos made the "win" side on that site. Also, thank you so much for "Source Code." We had gotten ourselves put on the list for that at the library but it was going to be a long wait. Now we don't have to wait. cool! thank you.

@Charles...I'm so happy you haven't seen it yet. AND, it's one you can watch several times b/c you'll get something you missed each time. AND, you'll behold the awesomeness that the Gyllenhaalics already know about ;) said...

Sherry Isaac said I should visit your blog, and I realized I have been here before! I think it was the call box on the home page that looked familiar. Actually Gloria Richard mentioned your name and I checked your site out then. Thanks for the Etsy ideas (my sis is an Etsy person) and the short story opp. I'm trying to write a short paranormal, but so far can only write long. I'll keep working on it tough. I hear Sherry didn't think she could write short and here she is w/ Storyteller out and full of shorts!

Hey Jessica :)

I, too, have heard much about you! So happy you visited. Twice :) Short stories have the added challenge of having to tighten beyond belief. I'm off to repay with a visit...
