An unexpected threesome…

I was hit with a triple whammy of news today that, while not particularly bad, was a bit jostling because of its unexpectedness.

The first of which is getting this upcoming week off work. It came from nowhere, and the news gave me mixed reactions. My first reaction was jubilation because I immediately started thinking of all the writing I was going to knock out. Then came the negative thoughts, thinking on how much I spent on Black Friday and how I was counting on the extra income. I’m not in dire straits or anything, mainly because of my big brother and his steady income, but still.

Which segues into my second and third triple whammies.

Last night Natalie told J.C. that she was pregnant, and apparently, he had no idea I knew because this morning he sat me down to talk after giving me a quick breakfast of cereal and a Pop Tart (again with the motherfucking Pop Tarts!) and solemnly told me he was about to be a father.

I tried so hard to keep a straight face. I wanted to laugh and tell him “Wigga, you are literally the last one to find out about this!” but I didn’t. I behaved. Instead, I said, “Are you sure it’s yours?”

BOY. You should have seen the look on his face! 😅 It was priceless! I laughed so hard I almost fell out of my chair. When I finally calmed myself down I reassured him that it was, that she was all about some J.C., and as my assistant I don’t really leave her with any time to cheat. She’s lucky she gets time off for booty calls.

Once the vein in his forehead receded some, he hit me with the third and final triple whammy, one that quickly sobered me up: he was quitting the writing game.

I couldn’t say anything for a long time. He loves writing, and the world’s he creates…you guys just don’t know! He has books upon books archived he’s written that he hasn’t published/converted over to eBook format yet, and I’ve read every single last one, and…I almost cried. I tried to talk him out of it, but I knew it wasn’t going to work. No one “talks him out of” anything. If he’s made his mind up about something, it’s because he’s carefully thought it out first, and there’s very little that you can say that he hasn’t already thought of.

So, I tried plea bargaining. I asked him to give me his books and let me continue his Change series, and to let me read the other stories he’s written after I clean them up and edit them some. He went quiet for a very long time.

And then he told me he would think about it.

Which means…exactly that. I’m going to keep presenting my arguments because I know what he’s probably thinking: that I’m going to porn-up his universe. Which I won’t. I can write non-porn, easy, I just choose erotica because it’s what I love. But I read plenty of non-erotica books, and I’ve even written quite a few of them. I just haven’t published them yet.

So, we’ll see. If he agrees, it is so going down…

Anyway, on the erotica side of things (Amore), I finished the Yellow Revision today. Which means tomorrow is the Green, and I’ll skip the final in after and get it out to my Beta Reader Hit Squad!

And my cover team should have the concept cover to me sometime tomorrow for the new Bad Girls of Erotica anthology, “No Boys Allowed!” I’ll post it on my social media accounts when I get it, and most likely place it in tomorrow’s Diary entry as well.

Anyway, time to get off the computer and watch the first episode of Lucifer with Natalie. We’re going to binge watch this motherfucker tonight and tomorrow!

Goodnight, my loves!

    And yes, I’m fully aware of how much I’m click-baiting the shit out of these Diary entry titles. It’s fun. I’m not sorry. 😀
