My stupid cold kept me from posting about this sooner, but it’s still a great bit of news, so we can still celebrate! :cheerswedding
Thanks so much for the wonderful honor, Kathy! :lipstick
This is very exciting news, not only because I adored working on Dean & Erica’s story, but because it helps to draw attention back to a collection of sexy, animal-infused stories that raises funds for a very good cause! :lovecat
In case you need a refresher…

I’m going to do something a little different this month… Most of you know I’m a big fan of The Walking Dead, & with the show returning February 9th, I’ll be filling the blog with all things Dead & Walking. Maybe not every day, but a lot of them.
Who’s with me? :balloongoingup
