I expected to wake up Tuesday night and find that we'd elected our first female president. I think most people believed that's what would happen, honestly. Sure, Clinton had some controversy, but she wasn't driven by lunacy. Well, that didn't happen and now the world's filled with hate.
Thing is, you're probably contributing to that hate, whether you realize it or not.
Most of my social media feeds are filled with hate for Trump supporters, for people who didn't vote, for people who voted for third parties, for people who didn't write-in Bernie Sanders, for people who won't stop complaining, for anything related to the election. I get it, I hate things, I totally know what those people are feeling. I work in a hotel. I instantly hate anyone who calls me to request a wake-up call instead of setting it up themselves. I silently wish leprosy on anyone who borrows a luggage cart and then shoves it out into the hallway and leaves it, rather than returni…
I'm mostly done going over the edits on Gwen #2, and running through the formatting as I go, so hopefully I should be getting the book up and out by FRIDAY! Friday being National DONUT DAY! You just know Gwen celebrates that like a holy day. And I know you're SO excited to read Business With Pleasure!
I'm biased, but I really love Gwen's second book. We get another peek into the Fairy world, see Mel face a whole new challenge, and we meet STAN! Oh, Stan.

I have a little short story I wrote about him that I'm trying to figure out what to do with once Business is out there, too.
Everyone loved Stan in Business With Pleasure, right? He's such a dorky little sweetheart! He makes my brain happy, and I loved spending time writing him. Because I love catching up with characters in Gwen's world, I wrote a little stand-alone short starring Stan, and I definitely think you'll like it.
A kiss from a lovely stranger, a surprise houseguest, an ill-gotten meal, and an uncomfortable feeling in the pit of his stomach: It’s been a strange day for Stanley Sneedley. Poppy is a whirlwind of inappropriate caresses, flirtatious winks, and double-talk, but Stanley still can’t help but say yes when she asks for his help. She’s on the run from dangerous men, after all, and Stan can’t bear to leave her to be found and possibly captured. He’s a gentleman above all, and no amount of her suggestive glances from this damsel will change that. As the night wears on, however, Stan realizes that perhaps Poppy’s not being entirely truthful about why she’s in trouble and how she plan…
