News! I have news!

I promised myself I would post as soon as I knew something worth posting, and here it is: the tentative schedule for the CONvergence panels!

For those of you not familiar with CONvergence, it's a SF/fantasy con located in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/Saint Paul) of Minnesota, USA. It's over the Fourth of July weekend, and this year's con features a lot of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 alumni... which, of course, appeals to the silly part of me.

I am definitely going to be there. And when you look at the schedule, please note what's going on at 22:00 and 23:30 Friday night!

Hee Hee Hee.

I will be hanging out in the MinnPoly group room as well, and there may be some hypnosis going on in there. Who knows? ;)

Jukebox and Seran have already told me they're going, so it'll be good to have two of my pets there. I know I have readers from the Twin Cities area. The chance of meeting is quite high! Live outside the area? A con is a perfectly vanilla excuse to go somewhere, MSP is a Delta/Northwest hub, and the con itself will be a lot of fun.

In other good news, I have a verbal agreement with Chewtoy to put some of his flash fiction on This makes me very, very happy. I have been a Chewtoy fan for a long, long time. I think his stories were the first that made me really think about finding out more about the MC community. (Shortly after, I discovered the Forum, and met artie, Wiseguy, and many more... and I'm glad I explored further!)

The flash fic is too short for the EMCSA standards, but it's really hot and fun. I'm hoping he gives me lots more!

Back to life!

My family member is finally home and recuperating! I can't express how glad I am and how grateful I am for all of the support I've been so blessed to get over the last few weeks. Yes, this sickness could have ended up lethal. Yes, the person has more surgery ahead and won't be able to work for months. But the danger is past.

I am going to ease back into things slowly over the next couple of weeks. I am overjoyed to report that yes, CONvergence and Dragon*Con are still on. Unless someone funds them, though, there will be no more trips this calendar year. I wish it was otherwise.

I intend to begin posting weekly updates to Blisstrance, and I do intend to record a podcast very soon. Keep watching both sites.

i appreciate everything. You folks are wonderful.

Apologies for the delay!

The medical situation turned out to be even more challenging than I thought. It's consumed the majority of my energy since 24-MAR. However, I do have to announce the following changes to the website:

1. "The Gift," an original short story, is now up on the Stories page.

2. The Virtual Hypnotist preset packs for "Robotic Transformation," "KittenFur," and "Mountain Lake for Men" are now up on the free stuff page. Grab the desired VHpack file, grab (which tells you how to install), and have fun! Don't have VH yet? Go here!

Hang in there. I'll be back as soon as I can.
