best. readers. *ever*.  

You guys have blown my little tiny mind. The “Hot Time” commission closed out at over $1100, which is, uh. Well beyond my wildest expectations. It’s far and away the most I’ve ever been paid to write a short story (excepting “Ill Met by Moonlight“, which Harlequin bought from me lock, stock and barrel), and I’ll do my best to write you a very good story.

For those who couldn’t participate this time, there’ll be an opportunity from November 7-30 to buy the story directly from me for $10 (or more, if you feel like it), which is the minimum amount set by fundable, so I think that keeps the playing field level.

Wow. Thank you. O.O

Really glad that the experiment worked (and not just because I want to read the story)!

Y'know... I'd missed the whole Illmet by Moonlight.

Can I just say, with all due sincerity, holy shit?

(and now, I wanna know what happened to Sophia!)

Aah, I wrote that about four years ago now, I guess, and for much of that time it had fallen off the Internet. They reposted it last October, and the URL seems to be a permanent one now, which pleases me. I kinda like the story. Sophia's so awful. :)

If I could sit down and figure out a plot for it, I'm pretty certain I could sell HQN a book-length Sophia story for their Nocturne line. But I haven't sat down to figure it out. :)

Gee, I wonder why, with all your stuff going on.... ;)

*nod* I added mine in at the last minute, with less than three hours before close, and it was already at $1100.

Go Catie! :D
