Out of curiosity, is anyone interested in a Kindle Paperwhite. It's the previous edition, so it's not the latest one, but it still works perfectly fine. Pretty much the only time that I use it nowadays is when I'm traveling via plane, which I don't see happening any time soon since I don't plan on going back to Tennessee for the holidays this year. So since my checking account is still somewhat lighter than I'd like, I thought that I'd at least see if anyone might want one.

I also still have quite a few things available in the virtual garage sale post that I put up several weeks ago. And I'm very much willing to haggle when it comes to listed prices, if you're interested in anything.

(Oh, and for those of you who donated to my Ko-fi page and requested fic, it's coming! The last few weeks have been absolutely hell, which deserves its own post, but things are calming down and I actually have time to breathe again.)

I'd already part-edited Wild Raspberries so it didn't take too long to get it ready to post. The sequel Wintergreen will take a week or so to get ready.

When runaway Daniel Seaton inadvertently trespasses on Tyler Edward's land, Tyler nearly shoots him on sight.

Tyler's got a lot of years under his belt, and his past doesn't let him accept strangers easily. Dan's situation is dire enough that Tyler takes him home, at least for a little while, and that turns out to be a good decision when Tyler's injured and needs Dan's help.

Tyler's learning to trust, and Dan's settling in to a new life, but things aren't always what they seem. Between interfering friends, injuries, and their attraction to each other, Tyler and Dan have plenty of to deal with even before Tyler's previous career returns to haunt them. Can they overcome what lies in the past to have a future with each other?

I got my Torquere books back and after reworking one to sell decided that I'd edit them to bring them in line with my current style (way less... and --) and offer them free as a thank you to all the kind readers out there.

The first of them, Drawing Closer, is also my first novel, published back in 2006. It's at AO3 and it's mild BDSM.

Charles is a professor, an expatriate Brit, and a man with a past. He's put that aside, living the peaceful life he thinks he needs. He figures he's happy.

Until he meets Gray Collins, that is. Persistent, stubborn, and hot, Gray turns Charles's world upside down and brings him a future he never expected, with links to a past he's tried to forget.

Fannishly in the wrong decade.

Yadda yadda, it's the beginning of the school year, I'm still in Get Everything Organized mode (which included unpacking the TARDIS that is my office closet, and wow does it suddenly seem like I have read/written/done a lot of things when I spread it all out in piles across the floor), and my brain is still twitchy from having been full time parenting my beloved but highly interactive child for all of August. I am so far from settled into a normal rhythm that I can't even really make a normal post right now.

BUT. I've been watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in little bits since, oh, Friday, and I am feeling ALL of the Thewlis as Lupin feels and watched the scene in the Shrieking Shack like five times in a row because I'm obsessed with his performance (and Oldman's Sirius, too), and I feel like I've been fannishly zapped back about a decade to a time when my LJ friends list was buzzing about these very topics ONLY I AM THE ONLY ONE HERE. :D I wasn't even in HP fandom! But goodness, I really enjoyed revisiting those performances. I'll have to go back through my memories and see if I saved any of the great fic and meta from that time.

Fandom problems, jeez.

Seriously?

Question: has anyone else had an issue with the USPS returning packages that they've mailed, claiming that the address is incorrect when it's not?

I've had this happen multiple times, usually when I'm mailing out several packages at the same time. It doesn't happen regularly, by any means, but it happens enough that it's starting to get more than a little annoying. And it just happened again, because a package that I mailed out from my last virtual garage sale post was returned to me yesterday.

Could it have to do with the something that my local post office is doing, when they're inputting information for the various barcodes and such that are then put on the package? That's the only thing I can think of to explain why it's happened several times, but I'm not entirely certain how exactly scanning packages works with the USPS.
