Since this is my own personal blog and all, I do have the right to brag and self-promote! Right??
Right! I won a contest in January hosted by Amber Quill Press, and as the prize, they have published my historical erotica fiction story, "Spoils of War." Please feel free to check out my story's site, for information and a short excerpt from the story, as well as purchasing information! (It's only 3 bucks, what a deal!)
Here are some reviews for the story:
From "Coffee Time Romance" (5/5 Cups!)
From "Romance Junkies" (4/5 Blue Ribbon Rating)
From "In the Library Reviews" (9 gargoyles of 10)

Perhaps I'm being a bit overly concerned, but I know how "grabby" babies can get, and how amazingly strong they can be. I'm worried that the little tyke for whom this blanky is intended might somehow grab a loop, pull it, and somehow get tangled in the loop. If a loop is pulled, it also makes it frustrating to smooth the blanket out. I haven't figured out yet how to secure the strips without ruining the cuteness of the blanky. Here's a picture of what I mean:
"Combine to make an heirloom afghan," from Leisure Arts Leaflet #555. I used Caron Soft Lt. Country Blue, Med. Country Blue, and Dark Country Blue. This was my first full-sized crocheted afhgan. Ok, ok, my first crochet project at all. Still, it turned out pretty nice. The nice ladies at the 63 Square crochet-along on crochetville.org helped out immensely!
