2016 You Want Blood Awards

It is with great pleasure I mention the wins we've managed to nab in the 2016 You've Got Blood awards hosted by 4padfoot (https://youwantbloodawards.wordpress.com/. The sheer amount of energy needed to pull off a contest is far more than anyone usually anticipates and my hat is off to her for the dedication and late nights she had to have experienced pulling it off. Sincere thanks.

Here are our wins. To any of our loyal readers who cast votes for us, our very humble thanks to you as well. TexanLady is in the hospital right now with a growth on her esophagus (non malignant) and I sent her word of our awards and am crossing my fingers I hear from her soon. I've been begging for updates for weeks now. I know it isn't easy waiting (im)patiently for new chapters of your favorite stories, I am particularly anxious for a new ARRANGEMENT chapter to dig into. We've discussed what is happening in this next one ... talk about rollercoasters!

Seriously, we both thank you for hanging in there with us through all the sometimes calamitous life events we've both gone through all these years. 







I wouldn't be so good a beta without the eagle eyes of several readers who write me to point out errors I miss. I share this with them.


(I've written 4padfoot to have my name removed from this story and hopefully get this award amended to reflect that it is entirely TexanLady's. All I perform is a light beta on it, the rest is all hers.)

Hopefully we'll have an update to share with you soon. Thank you for your avid loyalty that we'd even be considered for awards so many years after the start of these ongoing stories.

  1. WHY don't they make it easier to post comments on this site? ARGHHHHHHH!
    A reader wanted to know if TexanLady was updating BREEDER anytime soon. As far as I know, there hasn't been an update on that story of hers in ages. It does not appear here (although I could port it over if there was interest). I will write her for details and if she's going to be issuing an update, I will post news of it here. Promise.

  5. I just reread The Arrangement two weeks ago am deathly it continues to be one of the best stories out there. I know a HEA is on the horizon for our couple but my nerves are not coping with the wait and alas I don't have an end to skip to in order to calm my nerves!

    My biggest fear is that this will remain unfinished as so many of my other faves are so thank-you for sticking with it. I look forward to the next update. :-)

  6. MissRon, it won't happen unless something happens to one of us. Too many years have gone into ARRANGEMENT to abandon it. TL has it all charted out, we know the ending. I just have to keep nudging and hoping to get her to make the time in an insane schedule to write.

    I hate unfinished fanfic too, believe me.
