Just a note to say I finished the draft of Tales of the Shareem: Calder yesterday. Woo hoo!!! It's very spicy.

Now to revise etc while my editor is away at RT (I won't be there; I'll be home working).

Shareem "research"

My Shareem guys are a little more--exotic--than I am. To finish Calder I had to go online and do a little research. Glossaries are so handy. :-)

Today, I finished the last chapter of my Jennifer Ashley paranormal, and I'm within 10K of finishing Calder.

Such a feeling of accomplishment.

Amazon Part II

This morning, Amazon is saying it's a "glitch" that will be fixed.


No one's buying the glitch explanation I don't think, but at least they're going, "ooops."

My opinion of Amazon removing the rankings of "adult" material, anything from Lolita, to GL fiction, to my own Mortal Temptations....

Everyone go shop at Barnes and Noble.

Amazon.... stoooopid. A good explanation of why the no-rank thing will hurt authors (and readers) is here:


I was just about to buy some DVDs from Amazon. I changed my mind.

RAW 2009

I am proud of myself. I finally made my hotel reservation for RAW 2009! It's the first year I've been invited, and I'm so looking forward to it.

RAW (Reader Appreciation Weekend) is a reader/fan conference put on by Lora Leigh with the help of her cronies as a place readers can gather, get autographed books, and have fun.

I will be there this year (look for me under the name Jennifer Ashley if you can't find Allyson James).

If you can't make it to some of the bigger reader conferences, RAW is a nice (and less expensive) alternative. It's in Huntington, WV, the last weekend of September. Hope to see some of my readers there!
