…and I had no idea that this “holiday” existed. I only found out about this through Metrodeals in an email: “11–11 Singles’ Day Supersale Preview” and I thought it was a joke. Like how did Metrodeal know this about me? A little research and Wikipedia gave me this: Chinese Singles’ Day or Guanggun Jie (Chinese: 光棍节; pinyin: Guānggùn Jié; Wade–Giles: Kuang-kun chieh; literally: “bare sticks holiday”) is an entertaining festival widespread among young Mainland Chinese people, to celebrate the fact that they are proud of being single. The date, November 11th (11/11), is chosen because the number “1” resembles an individual that is alone. Huh. Anyway, I thought this was even funnier… Read More »So it’s Singles’ Day…
So this happened last weekend: What a relief to finally write THE END. I haven’t finished anything since I finished Fall Like Rain years ago.

Revised, not yet edited, so I don’t know if it will make it completely in the finished book.… Read More »Hello, 30.
Okay, we have a little something up our sleeves. More details soon, but for now, save the date: April 17, 2016, Sunday, 1-5PM. Get ready for #AprilFEELSday. ♥ * * * I’m so close to the end of Novel # 2, I can almost taste it. I’m doing a combination of revising/writing because I went through all the 16+ chapters in the past days to revise it, and then I went ahead to write the last chapters. I used to have a lot of problems with Act 2, but this time Act 3 is the stubborn one. I know how it will end, but… Read More »Save the Date!
