Compilation

ArewaUnboundSometimes I like to throw story excerpts in with a bunch of babble. This not only confuses all the people checking out my blog, but it also makes it hard for me to figure out what exactly I have happening here — I admit that I am incredibly disorganized.

As such, I felt that it would do myself and my fans good if I listed all the Easter eggs here. So enjoy…

—————————–

RTB — ready-to-buy. Complete and available for purchase now.

WIP — work-in-progress.

—————————-

Word from your mother

1) Even if a story is near to being available for purchase, it is still shown as being WIP. It only becomes COMPLETE once you can buy it.

2) “Harper Kingsley” stories are for the most part PG-13, at least when it comes to relationship stuff. On occasion things get real, but that’s usually pointed out somewhere in descriptions.

3) “Sol Crafter” stories are oriented toward adults that like HEA endings, though there may be exceptions. Mm (male-male) romance written in a fairly straight-forward style.

—————————-

I’m definitely on the lookout for beta readers. If you’re interested, feel free to drop me a line.

I’m comfortable with private user posts to make it easy. Or we can handle it all through GoogleDocs and email, so it doesn’t have to get weird. Appreciations are always given and heartfelt.
