PLEASE EXPLAIN YOUR BLOG PIC: Happy to. Happy Endings are a term used in massage pallors. Need I be more blunt? You pay extra for them and they are illegal. I think it's funny. Go fig.

G. I. Joe Holiday

Romance Writers
My Christmas Novella is available now through Dreamspinner.

Here's the cover and an excerpt. Enjoy!

The commander acknowledged Deck’s salute. “Congrat-ulations on Hell Week, Mathews. At ease.”

“Thank you sir.” Deck soft-gripped his hands behind his back and waited to see why the commander had sent for him. He refused to read too much into it. He was too tired to do more than just respond appropriately. If the commander wanted hand springs, Deck was fucked.

“I’m glad to see your swim time improving,” the commander said, a subtle reminder of how close he was to not making it and that the commander knew all. The senior officer sat behind his desk. Sitting next to him was Chief Davis from Phase One and a civilian, possibly a contractor GS-13. Deck could just see him out of the corner of his eye. He could be a SEAL in street clothes, but if so he had impressively bad posture.

From Val Roberts

Sorry for the x-posting, but I wanted to get the word out that I'm teaching Practical Chemistry for Writers as the first Murder in the Grove online class. This is a reprise of the class I taught through RWA KOD's COFFIN program last year (with a couple of easter eggs they didn't get). It's also probably the last time I'll teach this class for the foreseeable future.

Practical Chemistry will cover:
Poison 101 - the basics
Poison 102 - overview of alkaloids
Meanwhile Back at the Lab - how we handled things in my lab
Herbal Medicine that Really Works
Suburban Terrorism - what HSA won't tell you
Love Potion #1 - neurochemistry of attraction, infatuation & attachment

You can find more information (or sign up for the class, hint hint) at

Feel free to forward this information wherever you think it might be useful or welcome.
