I do want to thank some people for their help in taming this story the size of space whale. avon_09 was an awesome beta. Not many people could survive getting 30,000 words dumped into their lap at a time and not bat an eye. Thank you so much!
erin_giles for cheering me on and for being my Brit Consultant. Your knowledge helped so much. Can I buy you a pint?
knitchick1979 for the copy editing, the soft head to bounce ideas off of, and the many late night car rides and text messages.
chicago_girl_07 for being a great alpha and for waving those pom-poms high.
laura_guerin for the most awesome cover art. It blew me away and made me squee in the Starbucks.
And to Johnny Venom who kept giving me reality checks (Sleep is essential) and for providing last minute translations.
I thank everyone who supports writers in general. And now my advert for a couple of other authors. knitchick1979 has a story as part of TARDIS Big Bang also. Check out Kiss Her Goodbye. And we cannot forget erin_giles and her mafioso-style masterpiece Damsels in Distress.
Now my life needs to take back over again. I have a American Cancer Society Relay For Life team to get donations for and finals next week. Plus a monthly show next week and I am working my first ACEN. Quick pointer: If you ever want to make new friends, even at an Anime Con, carry around a knitted Dalek and see how may people squee and come over to you and "Oh My God!" And then watch them dies as you offer a real, honest to God Jelly Babie. (I love my little shops! Jelly Babies, Crunchie bars, Irn-Bru and Scottish bangers, and black pudding!) Hee-hee-hee.
Add to that that I got into a car accident this morning at a major intersection. SO far I am good, but I did bounce my head against the headrest. It could have been worse. I was on a six-lane highway, intersecting a five lane highway. If there had been cars coming when she bumped forward into the intersection... lucky I only have to replace my bumper and maybe a bit of the back end. Court date for the woman's ticket is in June, and hopefully it will be good. The cop seemed a little wary about the name of her insurance company.
Back to my so-called life... Anyone want to hire me just to write for them?
All this and I have to get ready for a script workshop I am holding on the 26th (Brilliant! Yes I know!) for a t.v. show I will be pitching. Gotta love it.
Oh, and by the way....

knitchick1979 are working on a piece of fluff Torchwood Round Robin based around Easter. I blame the chocolate eggs and inordinate amount of Peeps floating around.
In other news, I don't know where these days are going, but hopefully things are starting to look up? Ever feel unsure of yourself? I do, but I sincerely hope that this is the start of a bright new era, at least a semi-bright decade would be nice.
Yet, now I still have the storyline to finish...
