Deer Hunting PMS Humor

I've been down to the final strings of the werewolf novel for several days now. The trouble is that it's gun season, and deer hunters are jacked up on high levels of testoterone, hopes to shoot a trophy buck, and enough beer and junk food to give someone high choleterol just by breathing on them.

I dread this time of year. As Thanksgiving approaches, my dread turns into whimpers of despair. My home is overrun with friends and family who are hunters. Men stomp through the house in 2-inch treaded clod hopper boots, trailing enough mud to build another Great Wall of China, and all the water, leaves and sticks to mix the mortar. They consume beer with mass doses of beef stew, beef jerky, vinegar and salt tater chips, pickled eggs, Doritos, and anything else that might calm their pre-hunting jitters.

As this weekend drew to a close, my house and my nostrils had been bombarded with beer-and-junk-food farts that could melt asphalt and peel the paint off of a vehicle from 100 feet away. I've listened to doe and buck grunt calls that sounded like the constipated wails of someone who doesn't understand the concept of fiber, and I have been abused with re-runs of re-runs of Monster Buck videos and DVDs.

This is day 2 of deer season. It ends this weekend. I already warned everyone that this is PMS week and if one more person interrupts my writing to ask me another stupid question such as where are the spoons (Hello? Ever heard of the friggin' silverware drawer???), someone may leave this house with one of their grunt calls stuffed up his ass.

So, after a nice lunch, I plan on returning to the novel in hopes that I can finish it today or tomorrow.

Come on weekend!

Snow Text - http://www.christmastext.com

I have some great news!

For the past couple of weeks, I've been promoting my Christmas Angel Contest which features three of my titles--two print books and one e-book.

Today, I was notified by Freya's Bower that my novel, Conspiracy of Angels, is part of a Christmas sale! For a limited time, you can buy Conspiracy of Angels for $10.99!

This gives you a 5-dollar savings and you can still enter the Christmas Angel Contest. Just go HERE for the rules and info and to see a photo of the angel.

Hurry because the price will only be $10.99 for a limited time. If you love to read, to give books as Christmas gifts, or have a list of avid readers to buy for, this is a perfect opportunity to purchase a beautiful, glossy title(s), get it for $5 off the retail price, AND enter the angel contest.

***This book rivals the quality of trade paperbacks that you buy in bookstores. Readers who have bought it have emailed me about how beautiful it is. Jump on the sale bandwagon and get your copy during this amazing Christmas sale!

NOTE: The $10.99 price is ONLY available at the Freya's Bower site. Amazon.com is NOT a participant in this Christmas sale.

A direct link to the book's purchase page is HERE, but be sure to follow the link above to my contest page if you want to enter the contest for the Christmas angel.

Also, I have 4 copies of Conspiracy of Angels that I can sign. Just let the publisher know when you buy a copy or copies that you'd like x amount autographed.


In addition to the news of this Christmas sale, I wanted to let everyone know about a special newsletter subscription drive.

Everyone loves freebies or the chance to win something without spending money or putting much effort into it, lol. The number of subscribers is steadily climbing for my author newsletter. To celebrate Christmas and the near completion of my werewolf novel (paranormal romance), I'd love to see the total subscribers number hit 200 or above.

I have three more chapters to write on this novel. It should be done this weekend, then I'm going to do a "final" revision and mailing it to my literary agent. I'm so excited! It won't be long before he starts querying NYC publishers about this work. Why not forward this notice to those co-workers, friends, relatives, online pals, etc. who love to read? The 200th subscriber will win a 5-dollar Amazon.com gift certificate to apply to Christmas purchases or even a little something for him or herself.

Z's Author Newsletter

December's newsletter will have details about the paranormal romance werewolf novel, news about my latest works-in-progress, and the winners of the Christmas Angel Contest and the newsletter subscription drive.

Now starts the Holiday rush! Enjoy the days leading up to Christmas, and if you join my newsletter, I'll be in touch around the 15th with December's edition.

Happy Holidays!
