I haven't been around AW much lately because I've been up to my face in deadlines and getting ready to move back to the States (:cry: I don't wanna leave!), but I had to share this with all the people who helped me get where I am:


:hooray: My 20th book, Out of Focus (http://store.samhainpublishing.com/out-of-focus-p-6403.html), comes out tomorrow! :hooray:


17 novels, 3 novellas. It's been just under two years since the 1st came out (Sept 9, 2009), so it's a little mind-boggling to be into the 20s now.

Just wanted to share because I'm crazy excited, and also say thanks to the people of AW - y'all rock! :D

(And I hope to be around more after I get caught up on a few things and finish moving - I miss this place!)

Oh wow! I am in awe of you! 20 books? I can't imagine three let alone twenty! :D
What's your secret? Do you live tied up to your chair? Is that cover descriptive of your current technique? :D

In all seriousness though, congratulations on the massive achievement and see you again in another two years or so when you hit 50!

What a bunch of noobs. You don't chain a writer's hands -- it impedes typing. You chain her feet, obviously.

CGs on the new milestone!

Thanks, all! I'm really excited!

And...


What's your secret? Do you live tied up to your chair? Is that cover descriptive of your current technique? :D

LOL I have no day job and almost no social life, so...pretty much!


What a bunch of noobs. You don't chain a writer's hands -- it impedes typing. You chain her feet, obviously.

Hmm. You know, that's a good idea. *adjusts chains*


W00t on the 20. Has it been two years since you've been in Japan? Wow....time has gone fast. Seems like only yesterday we followed you there. Cool beans :D

It's actually been 3 years, can you believe it?? *whimpers* I wanna STAY.


That's astonishing. How fast do you write, for goodness sake? <Is awed>

Congratulations!

haha thanks :) I write about 5K a day...but, as I said: no day job, almost no social life.

Wow, you write 5,000 words of filth A DAY! Scarletpeaches can only dream of being you!

That's still pretty damn snacky.

I'm going on a writing week in a month's time. I now have a challenge; see if I can do 5,000 in a day, even once, while I'm there.

Somehow I doubt it, but what's life without aspiration eh?

Hey now...it's not ALL filth. Well, most of it. But...but not all! (In fact, the one I'm writing now might not even have any sex in it. I KNOW, I KNOW...shocking!)

Good luck! If 5K isn't your speed, don't sweat it, but it might also be something you can work up to. I started doing it during NaNo '08, and it's just become a habit. It's also a lot easier now than it was then. Muscle memory, habit, etc. Just find that speed that's comfortable and consistent for you, and go with that. :)

I was starting to wonder if your characters ever get tired or take a rest. :D

Thanks again, everyone!

Oh, every once in a while they get a break. But they're not to make a habit of it, or else they're punished. :D

Hey! Them's fightin' words! :D J/K And thanks! :D

Thanks everyone! And AmyAshley, don't hit yourself in the face with your boobs. I don't want to be responsible for that. :D
