WTF? To My Friends from OD

I imagine any of you wandering in here from my website are as distressed as I am to see that OD seems to have gone to its reward. The WHOIS says its registration ran out October 8, 2005 and that it is currently pending renewal or death (okay, it doesn't say "death" per se, but that's what it boils down to). I hope it comes back. I like OD. I've kept Torin's journal there for a long time and it would be sad to lose our happy little community. There are diarists there that I don't know how to go about contacting if OD is gone forever, and to lose some of them would be a great blow to my online enjoyment, and in some cases, to my personal life.

TEO, if you're here, please drop me an email so I can find you. Harley, I have your email. And Sunshine Wolf's and Tuppence and I think I have Fully Caffeinated's somewhere as well. I don't have Me Explorer's any more since it was in my OD mail which cleaned itself out some months ago. Nor do I have any way to find MsNoSign, gel, Willow and Jule and all the others who are on my faves list over there. I do hope you all wander in through my site and let me know how to find you online again. Come to Blogspot, or go to LiveJournal (I'm there, too) and let's try to start another community, if OD is well and truly gone. Glad I downloaded all my story entries long ago.

With a sigh...

October Update

Well, things are coming along nicely. I got the contract for one article, signed it and sent it back, and finished a second article for an online 'zine for busy women and I've been making some money with an online gig that I can do whenever it strikes my fancy. I've started work on the companion to the erotic novel and am still sending out queries to agents and publishers for the Bailey Sullivan book, which has sold another copy or two at It doesn't hurt to earn a few dollars while you're shopping a book around.

I actually had the erotic one up at Lulu as well until it was picked up by eXtasy Books. Once I signed the contract with them, I removed Torin and Sunshine from my Lulu storefront. I'm also going to be adding the cover to my storefront at and will post the link here when it's ready to roll.

My son has started working this week, which is a good thing. I so approve of young people working and contributing to the household.
