In case you weren't aware, it's my birthday today. I always get down on my birthday - usually because another year has gone by and I'm still wondering what the hell I'm going to do with myself. But not this year. This year? I'm fan-fucking-tastic (even if I'm 26 for the 7th year in a row)!
I'm not going to write you another mushy thank you letter where I tell how you've changed my life and made it more than I ever thought possible because then I'd get emotional and you know I hate that. Suffice to say, I love all of you sick fuck's.
Instead, I'm going to get the BIG stuff out of the way and then regale you with an epic recap of this past year. So... what's the big news? Well, YOU LIKE ME, YOU REALLY LIKE ME!
I am thrilled to announce that Seduced in the Dark has made it into the semi-finals for BEST ROMANCE 2012!!! Wow! Seriously.
I was gobsmacked. For starters, I wasn't on the list for votes - I was a write-in. Second, there was no erotica category and I never imagined I could compete in the romance category. Finally, you couldn't even write me in for the first two weeks due to a glitch in the system. So basically, MY FANS, THE BEST FANS EVER, waited for the problem to be fixed and then wrote me into the ballot!
I was like:
So what now? Well, I've got some steep competition. But just being nominated is HUGE and I want to say:
And also: PLEASE GET OUT THERE AND VOTE! I mean...Please, get out there and vote. LOL!
Semifinal Round: November 12 – November 18
Final Round: November 19 – November 27
Okay, so now that that's over, here's a look at some of my highlights this year:
