Spin Off

I'm a bit nervous about this. I've started writing Tony's story. Tony is Nick's best friend and all round technological wizard from Windows. It sort of means me going through Windows in detail and reminding myself what he's like. Ever so slightly weird, I know, but I want to do him justice and plus, the dude is pretty important. He's a bit of a ghost and yet as blatant as hell. Personality wise, he's all sorts of light and dark but nowhere near as conflicted as the Da Canaveze men. I'm seeing where I can go with him. Leading me down all sorts of dark and sexy paths. I know I'm in trouble when I give a character a surname. So world, meet Tony Caristo. Tony Caristo, the world. No need to be gentle. He can take it. He'll take it and he'll love it. The dirty blighter.

A Lady Who Vlogs And Tells...

Drea Riley is a busy lady! If you don't know her, she is an author and all round wonder woman at Beautiful Trouble Publishing. I can't keep up with her! She is currently doing video blogs over at YouTube, venting and reviewing and chatting and generally parting wisdom to all. Plus she says nice things about me, so I'm very chuffed!!

Have a look see!

It also begs the question - are you a blogger or a vlogger? Sounds quite filthy, but I'll go with it.

Little bit of vanity checked in today, and I went to the BTP website to see how Windows is doing sales wise. Bloody hell people, it's only gone to the number 1 spot! That's all thanks to you! You for threatening to cut me! You for telling me that the story wasn't finished! You who didn't believe why so called Miss Independent Gina would just let Nick play alpha male with her body! [That comment did make me laugh on Literotica to the point of tears] You who told me that I needed to reconsider the ending as I had it! Especially that last comment, because I didn't think I'd be able to do it. The light bulb was in the words 'you can avoid all the cliches that Mary Alice mentions' and that's what started the old brain cogwheels turning for the greater good. And I wish you hadn't made that comment anonymously, because I want to thank you personally! Having words of wisdom from Angelicsounds and Jayha did part of the job (okay a lot of it!) but you did the rest. You pushed a button in me that sent my muse Hank into a frenzy. He didn't leave me alone every day for two months until the tale had been told. So thank you. In times when writing has been the escape I've so badly needed in some really tough, tough times this is honestly one of the best surprises ever, ever, ever! I wish you all yumminess!

Now who wants to pick it all apart with the da hells and the wherefores? I'm up for a chat to psychoanalyse Nick, Gina, Tony, Massimo, Sofia, Paul and Mary-Alice. Let me know and we'll arrange! 'Cited my lovelies!
