Saturday Snark!

Hello all! I'm joining in the Saturday Snark goodness this week, as last week I didn't take part due to the blog hop. So here's a little snark from my novella The Amethyst Cat Caper, and Remi my little British bundle of snarkasm.


Hawk's laugh was low and throaty, sending a dizzying current racing through Remi's body, despite his irritation. "And you are even more adorable than I thought you were." Hawk pulled Remi against him and gave his lips a quick but thorough kiss. "I like it when you get all hot and bothered. You're a feisty little thing, aren't you?"

"I am not little," Remi replied, slightly affronted, not to mention cross with himself for allowing the man to kiss him so easily.

"You're littler than I am," Hawk insisted, his grin irresistibly devastating.

Remi rolled his eyes. "That's a moot point. Everyone is littler than you are." Hawk reached for the suitcase and Remi slapped his hand away. "I can carry it myself. You seem to be under the misconception that I'm some sort of damsel in distress."

With a heavy sigh, Hawk stepped aside and let him pass. "There you go, putting words in my mouth again." He trailed after Remi, who chose to ignore Hawk's playful tone as they entered the living room. "Of course I don't think you're a dame. I wouldn't be as impressed by the view if you were."

Wondering what on earth Hawk was on about now, Remi made the mistake of looking over his shoulder and was horrified to find Hawk's gaze planted right on his backside.

"Honestly," Remi gasped, his face flushed as he used his suitcase to conceal his virtue. "Have you any manners at all?"

"'Course I do," Hawk replied, reaching behind the couch to reveal the small trunk containing the amethyst cat. Remi stared at him.

"Please tell me you didn't put that filthy box down on my carpet."

"You're more interested in your carpet than how I found your hidey hole? I'm disappointed."

"Not as disappointed as your employer is going to be when he receives my cleaning bill," Remi muttered, stopping at the coat rack by the front door. Which reminded him. "And the bill for a new door." He draped his overcoat over his arm and grabbed his hat before opening the door for Hawk, who chuckled as he walked through.

"Ouch. I thought you English guys were supposed to be all gentlemanly-like."

Texty Tuesday: Handing the Blog to Remi

Hello everyone! Seeing as how I've got to finish up first edits for The Auspicious Troubles of Chance, I'm handing the blog over to Remi, who has been kind enough to accept my offer.

I did ask Hawk but he excused himself to get a cup of coffee from the kitchen and never came back. My guess is he's half way to Jersey by now, but that's okay, because it just means Remi can dish the dirt without having to worry about having the broody so and so hovering over his shoulder.

This is all rather new for him, so go easy on him. Remember, he's not accustomed to all the fancy technology jargon and whatnot, though I did give him a quick lesson. Go ahead and ask him questions and he'll answer them as best he can. Have fun!

*ahem* Hello. My name is Remington, but you may call me Remi. Charlie has been most kind in allowing me to host her whatsit for the day. I've been informed that if I type what I'd like to say on this end, it will come out on your end. Hopefully, that shall be the case. Quite frankly, I have no notion as to how this all works, though it is rather fascinating!

I have seen some very lovely... um, photographs, about the place. Perhaps we shall keep them between you and I. I fear Hawk wouldn't be too pleased to find himself on display, no matter how... inspiring he may appear. Heaven knows the ruckus he would cause.

Speaking of... My study is back as it should be. I'm afraid I had to replace quite a few pieces of furniture thanks to Hawk and his little bout of fisticuffs. Oh, and I had the door replaced. It now shuts properly. And the carpet was cleaned as well. Good God, that man is a walking disaster! Have you any notion how many tea cups since I've met the man? He doesn't even drink tea!

Forgive me, I didn't mean to get so flustered. *smooths down suit* Well, it's been a year since our little adventure and in that time, Hawk has moved out of his somewhat cozy bachelor apartment above Benson's Drugstore, and into my own more spacious apartment. We both agreed there was little sense in him paying rent on the place when he slept... elsewhere. *blush* Yes, um, as I was saying.  Hawk has moved in. He has his own bedroom, which is essential for propriety's sake, of course, and for the reason that at times, things can get a little... how shall I put it... We have our differences, you see, and well... bloody hell. The man can be infuriating at times, and he has quite the talent for driving me to the brink of madness. When that happens, he says he 'feels safer' sleeping in his own room. Of all the-- *deep breath*

As promised, I am quite happy to take any questions, and shall answer them as honestly as possible. I have no notion where Hawk has gotten himself off to, so I imagine it's quite safe. I have been given one of those wonderful little pictures and what Charlie referred to as 'electronic post', so I shall reply to all comments and questions below.

With kind regards,

x Remington Trueblood

4.5 out 5 for The Amethyst Cat Caper!

My first official review is in for The Amethyst Cat Caper from Joyfully Jay and I'm so very pleased by it! This is my first published story that is longer in length (novella), and the feedback I've been receiving has been wonderful. Not only because people seem to be enjoying it, but because I've also learned about areas I can improve upon moving forward, which is so very important to me.

I like to know what works and what doesn't, what can be made better. After all, that's all part of the growing process, and it's very exciting. This one's a little bit strange in the sense that I wrote The Amethyst Cat Caper months before I wrote When Love Walked In, even though it was published second. I learned quite a bit from The Amethyst Cat Caper which I put to use in When Love Walked In, hence the slow build up to Bruce and Jace's relationship as opposed to the faster paced relationship Remi and Hawk have. Of course that just means in Hawk and Remi's next adventure, I'm going to have to make them suffer a little. Sorry boys, but if you thought you were going to walk away that easy... I'm cruel, I know.
