What Stace had to say on Thursday, December 30th, 2010
Oh, the holiday fun

Well, it snowed on Christmas Day. Which was lovely and all, but the roads were icy. And it snowed on Boxing Day. And the hubs had a bad cold, which he’s sort of given to me and the Faerie. All of which adds up to, we had to cancel our trip to Florida. Which also added up to us wasting money on a rental car that sat in our driveway for three days and then got returned. Yay.

So to cheer myself up I gave away some ebooks on Twitter, which was fun. (These were copies of my EC titles, the erotic romances.) And–this is so awesome, and definitely cheered me up big-time–one of my followers actually named her new Kindle “Chessiebomb,” which was so awesome I had to buy her a copy of UNHOLY GHOSTS for Kindle. (That’s not going to work again, just so you know, heh.)

And of course I’ve been doing some writing and all of that stuff, and hanging out with my family, and coughing up goo, so it’s really been a great holiday

Here’s a picture:

Sheesh. I had a whole post written here about goals and editing and all sort of other things, but I somehow got logged out of WordPress and now it’s disappeared and I don’t feel like writing it all again, sigh. Probably for the best. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, so my moping and musing may not be the healthiest or most cheerful thing to read; let’s ring in the new year with some reminders of how self-destructive the human race is, and what a bunch of nasty, judgmental little bastards we are, too!

I’ll be fine, though, and I’ll be back soon–in the next week–with some actual worthwhile blog content, I promise.

Meanwhile, I hope you all have a wonderful and safe new year! Take care of yourselves, because I seriously need every reader I can get and can’t afford to lose a single one of you. Ha ha ha. (Seriously, do take care!)

(Oh, and as another aside. At some point soon I think I’m going to try to get another “official author photo” done. I hate the way I photograph, generally, so wish me luck, eep!)

    I’m sorry about the bad day, I hope you all get better soon and hubs and you get to start the new year doing whatever makes you feel good. (I’d say burning up the sheets but that is just my way, lol)
    I meant to ask you if you had any fan art that you’d like to share, I have been craving to see some Terrible’s drawings, probably because Chess is you (in my head anyway, she has your face, your hair, your general complexion, no matter how different you can write her, she’ll always be you in my head, I don’t know why, it never happened to me before, to relate a character with the author, it’s weird) and I wanted to see how other people might picture them.
    Anyway wishing you a very happy new year, and sending good energy your way !!!

    Hope you feel better soon!!! Playing trivia over the holidays was so much fun :) My fingers nor my blackberry’s signal was fast enought to let me win a round but it was totally cool playing. Hope we can all do it again soon, thanks Stacia :)

    I really like the hat with black trim! Sorry there’s a viral bug stalking your family. Hope it passes fast.

    I think I mentioned this in a comment to one of your posts about your netbook this summer. I felt inspired to finally purchase mine when you did. I’d wanted one for so long. I really love it! It’s a bit slow compared to my laptop, but when it comes to being portable, it absolutely wins out. It’s made me wonder why we call the big ones portable computers, because they’re really not. It’s kind of like the car phones in the 80’s, I guess. 😉

    Anyway, when I got the computer, as always, it asked me to name it. And since you were the inspiration to buy it in the first place, and I wanted to choose something that felt important to me right then, I called it Cesaria. :smile:

    So everytime I want to connect my computer with something else, or log out from somewhere, it says Cesaria, which I love.

    I like that photo (and the Santa hat with the black trim.) I hope your holidays were awesome, overall. I’m looking forward to the next Downside book, too.
