Frack It All!

On Monday, February 29th, the Rise of the Discordant series is coming to an end. What had initially been an open ended project became an ambitious seven book series, but ultimately, I brought it down to five. Why? Well, to be honest, I had a nice, natural end to this story arc and decided not to fight it. Besides, I may return to this series one day. If nothing else, I'm interested in following  certain characters on their continuing adventures. Perhaps fate may even take some of them out of Blackbird at some point. But for now, we have to say goodbye to the gang. This is now my second complete series. It's quite a bit different from my first, but I'm no less emotional, which surprised me. I mean, this is my twelfth book and this series has been humorous. Surely by now I've grown accustomed to hitting publish and being on my way. No, not at all. It still hits me just as hard. I'm grateful for this. I never want to be jaded. I never want to take for granted

Oh sure, the hearts are a bit much, but I could have given you Sunshine Lollipops and Rainbows No, I'm not drunk, but yes, I'm about to act like the sloppy drunken friend who has one too many drinks and loves the world. It's true, if you're reading this right now, I love you. I mean, in a totally-platonic-I'm-married-and-not-going-there kind of way, but there it is. I happen to know that I am pretty darn lucky and here recently, I've had several awesome reminders of how lucky I am. How lucky? Well... In the last few months, I've had a Goodreads giveaway winner send me a handwritten thank you card for the book they won. I've had several emails
