I love a really glaring Hexenbiest of an error

Hello, this is your Hexenbiest calling!

Hello, this is your Hexenbiest calling!

The other day I found someone had read a copy of a book I wrote a few years ago, The Extra Man (Book 3, set at Easter).  They’d given it 5 stars, which amazed me. So I went, with a bit of a spring in my step, to the stack of books to be mailed out to the December giveaway winners and . . . I was missing a book!

I had accidentally mailed a winner an old proof copy that was riddled with errors.  Yes, sad but true. And since I don’t know who got the bad book, and Goodreads doesn’t allow authors to contact winners  . . . .

Proof Copy?!” screamed I. “Holy Frack! That’s going to make for a bad review!”

How on earth had I missed that? Moi! I cursed; I stomped my feet; I thought about tearing my hair out (but alas, I have really super hair). In short, I flew into a rage.

Then I laughed.  Really, did it matter that much?  No one who’d won a book had posted a review yet. If I ever they did, I thought, I’d just comment that I accidentally sent a proof copy. But I’m not crying over spilled milk at this point.

All I can say is what Fling recently pointed up (via a text from a great distance):

Tempest + Teapot = Typical Indra

so true!

For anyone that cares, I decide to make the first 3 books of my old series free to download through January (ePub format) for Goodreads.com readers as a semi-atonement to whomever  I gipped out there. These books can be read as stand alones, so if you want to read Book 3 first, or only, no matter.

Baby, Send Me Over That Physcal Cliff!


One minute to midnight, one minute to go . . . .
One minute to say good-bye, before we say hello!

Let’s start the new year right, twelve o’clock tonight,
when they dim the light, let’s begin . . . .
kissing the old year out, kissing the new year in!

Let’s watch the old year die with a fond good-bye
and our hopes as high as a kite!
How can our love go wrong if we start the new year right?

(Remember to enter the giveaway today to win Lily Does Sweden.
Because after you fall off Cliff, who knows what will happen.)

Soul Searching Solstice or All Out Apocalypto?


Personally, I think if the Mayans knew about foretelling the future, they’d have seen themselves dying out 400 years ago. So I’m not too worried that tomorrow might be the end of the world. Besides, as a Christian, I live in a continual state of “the end is near.” It’s sort of who we are as a people. And we actually look forward to the end of the world. Go figure.

For those of you planning on sticking around over the Winter Solstice, I’ve convinced my publisher to give away some free ePUBs. It’s 4 different books with 3 different giveaways running on Dec 21 (Seat At The Feast), Dec 25 (A Goose Is Cooked), and Dec 31 (Lily Does Sweden). The last book (The Extra Man) is given to people who write reviews on any one of the other giveaway books.

I refer to them as the Apocalypse Giveaway; The Reason to Live Giveaway; and The Fiscal Cliff Giveaway. My publisher might have other names, not sure. Don’t really care. If you’re interested in some free ePUB format books, bounce on over to the giveaway page and check it out. The entry page is only live the days of the giveaways.

For great books and art on all things pagan and soul-stice, check out ecoechantments (a great showcase of amazing British artists and artisans). Or, head over to Wendy Andrews place and pick up a copy of her magical Luna Moon Hare. Yeah, that’s right. Christian and Pro-Pagan!
