Of course, now that I’m reading Sarah’s Turn, I see what utter crap it really is (okay, maybe not utter crap—just plain old crappy). My writing has improved tremendously since I wrote that story. I’d like to think I’m making Sarah’s Turn a whole bunch better (not just shorter).
However, I’m stuck with a title. I can’t use the title of Sarah’s Turn, because that event has already been revealed in
I’m currently calling it Vampire Wedding,
but it just doesn’t sound good enough. Someone suggested Dark Nuptials. I kind of like the Nuptials part, but it’s not
really Dark. Although the wedding does take place in Vegas. Bite Me.
Perry is in this novella (I love writing him, he definitely keeps it from being dark), and there’s this bachelor party scene that includes an accidental ingestion of Viagra. I’m hoping I write it as funny as it is in my head.
I tell you, coming up with a short paranormal title for this novella is really frustrating me. Every time I think of an appropriate title, it sounds more contemporary than paranormal. If you have any suggestions, lay ’em on me. I could use all the help I can get.
Learned something recently about gift cards. We’ve had two incidences in two different restaurants, so I’m guessing it’s probably the same in all. So BEWARE:
If you run your gift card under $1.00, you’ll most likely lose whatever cents are left on it.
Even though we had the receipt showing we had 70 cents on the card, when the waitress ran it, the balance showed zero.
I know, it doesn’t seem like a lot, but it was MY 70 cents! And they took it. It doesn’t seem right. Why would it drop? I can see it dropping if the card wasn’t used in a year or something, but this had only been a week. The thieves!
From now on we’ll make sure not to run our cards down to less than $1.00 (or at least give the money as part of a tip).
High School football starts here tonight. And yes, we’re going to the game even though our youngest graduated 12 years ago. Days are just flying by now. Flying by!!
So… Do you use gift cards? Have you ever noticed balances of less than $1.00 drop off?
