Catherine is a happy novelist, but a little strapped for cash, so the six-week job at computer software company Create and Conquer is a welcome chance to make some extra money. She meets the CEO, Lance MacCallan, on her very first day. He’s gorgeous, rich, admired by all around him, and a total bully.

But it’s not the attacks on her competence or the threats to fire her that have Catherine rattled. No, it’s when the CEO starts trying to convince her to go out with him that things get really unpleasant.

Available through Smashwords. The book can be downloaded to a variety of e-readers, including kindle, and can be downloaded as a pdf to your computer. $2.99 US. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/537568

Available through Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/CEO-Can-Drop-Dead-Romance-ebook/dp/B00WIV6GE8/ref=sr_1_3?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1429882909&sr=1-3&keywords=moira+moore

DO NOT BUY THE PAPER VERSION! I ordered some copies for my own use, and it was a fiasco. I had to pay shipping costs to createspace directly, then had to pay a totally unanticipated second cash-on-delivery payment to the courier. The only reason I've kept the book available is so I can buy copies should I need them in the future.

A portion of the author’s royalties is donated to organisations working with survivors of abuse. Currently, the organisation is the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres. Please follow the link to see the kind of work they do. http://www.sexualassaultsupport.ca/

For a more detailed description of how I will be acquiring and donating the Coalition's portion of the royalties, see this post: http://moiraj.livejournal.com/362680.html

Shield Dunleavy Mallorough and Source Shintaro Karish have lived in Flown Raven for five years, protecting its residents from natural disasters and enjoying the lack of interference from both the council of the Triple S and the Emperor. When they are unexpectedly summoned to Shidonee’s Gap by the council, Lee and Taro learn that while they have been living at their isolated post, there have been a lot of changes in the world, changes that will drag them into unimaginable duties and unprecedented danger.

E-versions are available through Smashwords and can be downloaded to a variety of e-readers, including kindle, apple i-pad, personal computers, i-phone, sony, kobo, android, and others. If you don't have an e-reader, you can download it as a pdf file. You have the option of getting it for free or paying if you want. If you choose to pay, you can pick any amount you want. It's here:


You can get it on Amazon for anywhere from 80 cents to 99 cents, depending on the day and time. This is the amazon link:

Moving Limbo [Sep. 2nd, 2015|12:40 pm]
Most of my stuff has been moved into the apartment, done in two stages. Two more trips to go, but they'll be fairly light. I like doing it this way, instead of one massive stressful day of getting the truck - which may or not be made available early in the day, during my last move they claimed it could be as late as 8:00 pm, WTF? - hours loading the truck, driving wherever, hours unloading the truck, returning the truck, and then being left with a massive mess in the apartment that I wouldn't get straightened away for days/weeks.

I have arranged for cable and internet, but they can't show up until September 8th! I get it, this is the busiest time of year, a lot of students moving into a city with a major university as well as a college, and for many, like me, the local cable company is the only option. Bell (evil, evil Bell) provides only satellite services in many areas, including mine, and many renters, including me, can't stick dishes on the building.

Unfortunately, the 8th is the first week of classes, and I have classes on the 9th, so I can't get cable and internet until the 10th. I move in on the 7th. I'm not really bothered about lacking tv and internet for entertainment purposes - reading, writing, DVDs - but because I'll be out of communication with the school. I don't have a smartphone or other access to email except the computers at the school itself.

I have arranged for two new pieces of furniture to be delivered tomorrow. The apartment is quite small, and I chose the furniture with that in mind, but I'm concerned about their ability to get it into the building. The tiny set of stairs to the small door is needlessly surrounded by a railing. I showed pictures of it to the salesman, and he said the delivery people could manage it, but he was trying to make a sale. If they can't, or claim they can't, I'm sort of screwed.

I met the owner of the bakery down the street. The first stage of the move, I did myself, and she noticed me unpacking the car. I was sucked into the bakery afterwards, of course, and had an enormous piece of chocolate cake. As I was about to leave, she came to introduce herself and asked if I was moving into the area. So we had a short chat and I imagine I'll be visiting the bakery more often than I should.

So far, things have gone without a hitch. It makes me nervous.

Another Contest by Inkitt [Sep. 2nd, 2015|09:07 am]
This one involves novels 40,000 words or longer. The prize involves the rather misleading promise of getting you published. What the winner gets is a contract with Inkitt in which Inkitt acts as an agent to attempt to get the winner a publishing contract. I don't know if Inkitt has ever acted as a writer's agent. Still, perhaps it's worth looking into.

So Scott Walker is suggesting that building a wall on the Canadian/American border is a valid idea [Aug. 31st, 2015|09:13 am]
To keep the number of successful terrorists getting over the border down to the 0 it's been to so far. As far as I know. Let me know if I'm wrong. I don't think he's considering illegal immigrants, because I don't believe he knows such a thing as illegal immigrants from Canada exists.

To be fair, he hasn't said he was going to do so, a la Trump, just that it's a legitimate idea.

It's not physically possible, of course. The border that's along the 49 degree (sorta) is 8,891 kilometres with impossible terrain, with a further 2,475 kilometres between the Yukon and Alaska, but the kind of people who advocate such a wall - Walker is not the first - don't bother with anything like facts.

So far, all of the response I've seen from Canadians is "LOL, go ahead." It might cut down on the gun smuggling.

He should start with the Peace Arch, which is over the border between BC and Washington. It would be easy to tear down and he could claim initial success. I've never bought into the rhetoric carved into it:

Children of a common mother, brethren dwelling together in unity, may these gates never be closed.

The Conservatives are refusing to talk to the press during the campaign because they're determined to do every single thing wrong.

And of course .... [Aug. 27th, 2015|08:42 pm]
Some pathetic puppies are tossing about the idea of suing WorldCon. Really.

According to people who weren't actually at the Hugo awards ceremony - their "sources" are unnamed witnessed - there was something called an ... Asterisk Award? This was allegedly given to Sad Puppy nominees, and only Sad Puppy nominees. The allegation is that this represented the creation of a new award, which wasn't created by official procedure, so this apparently invalidates the whole vote of all of the awards. Or something. The word "fraudulent" has been used. If you actually want to read the justification, I'm providing the link, but given it makes no sense, it'll make your brain hurt. https://www.reddit.com/r/KotakuInAction/comments/3ii0qp/hugo_awards_under_fire_for_disenfranchising_voters/

Anyway, some guy named Scott Malcomson demanded his money back from WorldCon, and they obviously said no, so now he is making rumblings about a class action suit. Seriously.

By the way, the cost of the membership needed to vote for the Hugos is $40.

Dear any lawyer who is approached by this guy: run. Don't even start to give him advice, 'cause you know he'll sue you for malpractice whatever happens.
