Bad Blogger! Good Reviews! Freebie Coming Soon! Fan Mail!

I admit I am a bad blogger.  It's a self-confidence/introvert thing.  I mean really, who wants to read what I babble on about?  Apparently, though, there is someone out there who misses my entertaining posts.  Back to that later.

Back To Normal has received some nice reviews --
Tam's Reads"A super second outing for Wren."
4 1/2 stars from Lily at I Love Books and at Jessewave's
4 1/2 stars from Rainbow Reviews
Back to Normal is now available at All Romance Ebooks and Amazon (Kindle edition).  Maybe it's at other sellers, too.

The M/M Romance Group at Goodreads at Goodreads is presenting Holiday Stories.  Members of the group asked authors to fill their stockings with special treats, so every day this season there's a free short story (or two).  Mine is called "In the Wind" and will be posted on December 20.  There's a werewolf in it. And that's all I'm sayin'.   The picture at  the right was provided for inspiration. 

And now on to the Fan Mail.  This appeared in my email box yesterday:


I read this blog by my favorite m/m writer, Wren Boudreau, and she hasn't updated it since Veteran's Day.  I feel like she probably has a lot of interesting things going on, what with the release of a new book a couple months ago and it being the holiday season.  She could probably put up some pictures of dudes dressed like elves making out, or a naked guy with a conveniently placed candy cane.  I also know that she has a son who has gotten into some crazy antics involving a cute young woman, a back room and a pulled oblique muscle.  Maybe Wren's blogosphere would want to hear about that.  I know that the girl part would probably turn them off, but her son is a pretty attractive guy with a 220lb bench press and lovely arms.  I believe I also heard that she was writing a short story about gay werewolves.  Maybe that is something her fans would want to hear about.

These are just things I think about....

Your #1 fan (who can't actually make it all through one of your books because he has to stop reading as soon as he gets to the sex scenes) 
I was going to edit that letter a little bit, but I find in re-reading it that it's perfect the way it is.  Tomorrow I will post about my son and his "crazy antics" so stay tuned.  In the meantime:
For whatever reason, I had difficulties locating quality "elf" pictures.  If you know of any, please share.


  1. Wow! What a lot of great news. Congrats on the good reviews. It is about time you updated the blog. We all love reading about you and what is going on with your writing.

    And what a well crafted letter by, what sounds like, a very handsome and strong young man. I can't wait to hear more about his "crazy antics".

    - Your #1 Fan

  2. Why thank you so much, #1Fan!

    And yes, that letter-writer is a very handsome and strong young man, whose life is full of interesting antics.


  3. Too funny! Well, the good thing about having such an insistent and devoted number 1 fan is it gets you blogging again. And such promising material! I mean a 220-pound bench press is nothing to sneeze at! :)

  4. Hi Val! I feel like we haven't communicated in ages!

    I have heard that bench pressing 220 lbs is sort of a big deal.

  5. Congrats on the nice reviews!

    Don't let your introverted self keep from blogging! I know exactly how you feel; I'm an introvert, too, as you know. I can assure you that people do want to read what you have to say. I really want to read that story about your son now! LOL!

  6. Hmm. Shouldn't a #1 fan HAVE to make it all the way through your books to maintain that title?! Just sayin'...

    Hey, I'm an introvert, too.... :)

  7. Love the letter from your #1 fan. It must feel great to have one of those. ;)

    Looking forward to seeing you around more often. And yes, I'm also introverted. We should all start a club or something. LOL

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

  9. Eyre: Thanks so much :) Glad you want to hear the story!

    Chris: You may be an introvert but your on-line personality is very ex!

    Regarding the #1 Fan - Here's what he had to say to me about your comment: "...I think I know W.B. (cuz that's what I would call you if I talked to anyone about your books) better than any of you people. I have been her number one fan for 23 years,2 months, and 23 days..."

    Clearly he's one step away from calling you out!

  10. Hiya Lily!

    It is pretty fabulous to have a #1 Fan!

    What would we call our club? "The Leave Us Alone Gang"
    "Antisocial butterflies"(I saw that on zazzle)
    "Wait, I'm thinking"

  11. Which makes it kinda weird meeting people I know from online, because I'm a lot more self-contained than you'd guess. :)

  12. Hmmm.... maybe you all who met in San Fran should provide personality evaluations of each other for the rest of us!

  13. Congrats on the fab reviews, and on the fan mail ;) I'm glad your #1 fan nudged you into posting.

    The cookie could be an elf. He could have pointy ears hidden under his Santa hat. I bet he would make really fun toys, too ;)

  14. Thanks, Ava!

    Hidden pointy ears? Good point! And if he couldn't make toys, I'm sure he could make use of them.

  15. Where is the candy cane man? :-) You're lucky to have such a fan.

  16. Oh Tam, thank goodness you're here! I need a candy cane man, stat! Have you got any you can share?

  17. Good news all round Wren.. Congrats.

    and thank god that someone got you out of hibernation....cute fan mail..

    ***must copy and annoy some of my favourite authors who dont update, plus a little editing of course****


  18. Hi E.H!! Thank you. We all need to be nudged now and then!


Talk to me!
