Summary:

Just over a day at the beach, and already his hair was even lighter than usual—practically white—and his skin was darkening to its usual California tan. His eyes were just slits of sea blue, and he was smiling at me. I could feel myself smiling back, broad and goofy. This is what it would be like every morning. Someday.

I edged my hand out into the sand between us, and his came to meet mine. I am the luckiest guy in the history of the universe.

“Ah-ah-ahhh!” Vanessa called out.

I squeezed Jeff’s hand, dropped it, and raised my hand to flip Vanessa the bird.

“Forget it,” said Jeff, sitting up and brushing the sand off his shoulders. “We’re under a microscope.”




Oh wait, I promised you something else today! Hold tight for my next post.

I'm in Boston, but I don't know more than anyone at this point. All my loved ones are accounted for, fortunately. Right now, parts of the city are still crime scene, but we're supposed to "go about our lives and remain vigilant." My partner was supposed to start a new job today, but the building and subway stop are closed. I work from home for an out-of-state company, so it's business as usual for me.

And if I don't post more Baby-sitters Club fic, the terrorists win!

Chapters 19-21 are up. Things are getting resolved, but! There is still one more day of posting! AND don't forget tomorrow's Special Wednesday Reveal.

I posted chapters 10-12 of my new Baby-sitters Club fic, What Happens In Sea City... We've reached the halfway mark and it's up to 35,000 words, already more than its predecessor, Byron and the God of California!

Continuing my plan to post 3 chapters a day of my new BSC fic, I've just posted chapters 4-6. We're up to a total of 17,000 words. I'm actually not sure how long it will end up (still doing some tweaks as I post), but at this rate we're looking at about 68,000 words, which I think will make it the longest thing I have ever written.

This is a very exciting week for me!

Today, I began posting the long-awaited (well, by me: I've been working on it forever) sequel to my most popular fic of all time, the Baby-sitters Club fic Byron and the God of California.

I want to thank Mizz Marvel for beta and encouraging excitement! I also want to thank all of the 200+ (!) people who left kudos or comments on the original fic.

It's a long fic, so I'll post three chapters a day for the next eight days.

One week from today, when I post the last three chapters, I will also reveal a SPECIAL SURPRISE!

So stay tuned!

It appears the Baby-sitters Club book reviews on my site are broken. I'm working on backing them up to goodreads.

I'm in the process of revamping my Baby-sitters Club book recaps/reviews. I put everything in a DB backend so they can be sorted in various ways and added information such as writer and release date. I'm still not totally done with the coding, so it might occasionally be in accessible, but it's probably about as done as it's going to get, since I'm getting bored.

There are some new reviews in here, and the reviews of the first four books have been redone. Enjoy!

Because it is not disallowed to sign up late, I have also signed up to be an author at Journey Story. Yes, in Baby-sitters Club. :D Oh, man, who is going to do art for me?

If you downloaded my BSC Yuletide story Byron and the God of California to your Kindle or other MOBI ereader, you may have been confused and saddened to discover that the handwritten notes were missing from the story. I've corrected the issue for future downloads - you should either get the images, plain text, or both. So go ahead and download!

Also, thanks everyone who let me know I was recced by thefourthvine! I am honored.

I've never participated in [livejournal.com profile] yuletide before, so I don't know if this is normal, but due to what I can only assume is a Christmas miracle and/or clerical error, I have been gifted with no less than five (5) stories! AND THEY ARE SO MUCH FUN.

Electioneering, Baby-Sitter's Club, Gen - Takes place in high school! I love seeing the BSC girls age. :)

As Though The Strings Were Thine, Merchant of Venice, Antonio/Bassanio - I seriously can't believe I actually got this! An extremely valid and delicious "Bassanio fucking Antonio for money" reading.

I Should Assume It's Still Unsteady, How I Met Your Mother, Barney/Robin pre-het (? is that a term?) - Robin deals with some emotional fallout w/r/t her father's feelings about her and Barney's apparent coldness masks surprising sweetheartiness - i.e. things I love in HIMYM.

It's Magic, How I Met Your Mother. Barney is MAGIC. Seriously. How did this writer know about my NPH/unicorn OTP...?

Waiting, How I Met Your Mother, as Barney/Robin as the show. Could it be... a new Sparkles video? :) A sweet holiday tale with great, funny one-liners.

I want to thank all of my Yuletide writers - this was an awesome haul! I really appreciate all the work everyone put in. All the stories came out great and I adored reading them.
