Beautiful, Mysterious and Bizarre: M/M Horror & Urban Fantasy by Jordan Castillo Price
Hello. Frankie here.
You may not have realized the extent of my literary contribution to JCP Books, since I'm too humble to accept a citation on the JCPbooks.com "about us" page with the other crew members, but rest assured, the high caliber of Jordan's projects is always at the forefront of my mind. In this photo, for instance, you'll find me hard at work paper proofing this month's chapters of The Starving Years.
About the three pages of PsyCop 6 I deleted. It's all a matter of quality control. I'm striving to ensure you get the best possible ebooks we can create.
A quick note from Jordan: PawSense is a software utility that helps protect your computer from cats. It quickly detects and blocks cat typing, and also helps train your cat to stay off the computer keyboard. (From the PawSense website)
I bought this. It's only available via snail mail, and boy-oh-boy, I can't wait to receive and install it. And don't go thinking that maybe Frankie's a pill, but Puffy's an angel who just sits placidly by while I type. Both of them love to prance around on the keyboard.
Puffy, however, didn't delete several pages of my novel. He just types stuff like 2333332lkjjjjjjjjjjjj3 in random spots throughout the text.
Is anyone else as baffled as me that "cat typing" is an actual term?

Hello, dear reader!
Sadly, the ship has now sailed, and I'm once again feeling like it's a huge, unfulfilling strain to write even a few pages per day. I think that's the way of things. There's an ebb and flow to the world, from the phases of the moon to the cycles of the tides. Maybe the next time I have a flow-day, I'll make note of what phase the moon is in, so that in the future I can ensure I don't have a similar day slated for administrative work!
At least while the writing mojo was here, I totally ran with it. You'll note I've posted three chapters of The Starving Years for your reading pleasure. I also made significant headway on the next PsyCop novel!
Here's hoping you find the flow in all your favorite endeavors!
If you're like me, you find sales, specials and discounts hard to resist. Every week I create a sale or special at JCP Books. The current special, valid through August 23, is designed to save on credit card processing fees and put that savings back in your pocket.
MORE THAN ONE IS MUCH MORE FUN
Some people like to buy things one at a time. Buy a book. Come back in an hour. Buy another book. Come back in an hour. Buy a book...you get the idea.
That's a great way to make sure the credit card processors don't go hungry! They charge a fee for every transaction.
I'd rather encourage you to put more stuff in your cart and bump the savings back to you.
This week's special
