Happy Birth Days

Fourteen years ago today, I was in pain. A lot of pain. The kind of pain that requires an IV of drugs, cursing, and punching the nearest person in the face.

Labor pains.

Birthing pains.

Parenting pains.

My son is fourteen today. I asked him this morning if he thought he'd survive this long (you know, being raised by me an' all) and he said, "No." Then I said, "Yay, survival! Happy Birthday! Get out of bed, it's time to get ready for school!" We celebrate big time, don't we?

In a weird coincidence (although, this is ME we're talking about), the second book in the Wizards of Nevermore series is out today, too ... NOW OR NEVER. Birthing that book brought a different kind of pain. It was a whole lot of WTF was I thinking? mixed with sweat and tears (i.e. copious weeping) and a couple of sacrifices to the gods.

While I celebrate fourteen stress-free years of bliss and serenity (hahahahahahahah ... ahahahahahahah), I invite you to join the par-tay at my Minions Yahoo! group. There's a free prezzie for all list members (if you join, you get it, and no, I'm not giving hints).

If you leave a comment on this post, you'll be entered to win an a guest appearance in ONLY LYCANS NEED APPLY. I'll put your name in the acknowledgements, or as a cameo appearance in the book. Your choice! I'm picking one winner from the blog and one from the Minions ... and I'll announce the winners Thursday morning-ish.
