Author has written 5 stories for Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire Mysteries, Twilight, and Gone with the Wind.

June 14, 2021 - Just so you know Chapter 28 of The Force is in good shape—needs cleaning up, tweaking, 'ornamenting', and a little magic dust if I can find it would be nice. A few more days, peeps. I thank you for your patience.

It would be sooner but I have houseguests this weekend. Family, can't avoid it. Sigh. Can I tell you a secret? I don't like having houseguests. I'm just anxious about their comfort the entire time, not a natural hostess. I stress and clean and once they get here and we cook some food and tell some stories and have some wine it will be better, but still, I'm a loner at heart, a complete INFP (waves at all the other introverts out there). Would much rather entertain with written words than my presence. Ha.

While you are waiting for the next chappie please google 'The Charleston Mermaid Incident' and you'll find this crazy story about how a hoo-doo priestess and an apothecary got into a competition in 1867. It's hilarious. Now some accounts said it's a Gullah-Geechee priestess, which fits in more with Charleston, but anyway, it's interesting as all get-out to me. Since I've already mentioned hoo-doo I'm gonna use it in the story somehow, not sure exactly how though.

See you soon, sweet readers. And take care of yourselves! Peace, misscyn

OOOOooooOOOOoooo

Just to make it clear, I approach writing a story like decorating a Christmas tree, which is purely coincidental to our current season. I have the tree up, and the lights strung. It's the decorations - the little special touches that make the magic - that I struggle with. I may have a chapter finished for all intents and purposes, the structure outlined and in place, the major happenings and conversations written - but I refuse to post it without the finishing touches, the words that, in my mind at least, let pleasure edify.

So, in short, I will be posting a chapter before Christmas - it may be small, or it may be large, depending on how the week goes. But you'll get one - because you are all on the very nice list :)

OOOOooooOOOOooo

I don't feed trolls.

9//26/2020

Hello to all my readers, old and new. If my followers from DEAC are somewhat confused about me returning after ten years with a Gone With The Wind fic, blame the pandemic. I became so morose during the months of plague misery and confused about the state of the world that I turned to the books I read when I first started loving reading. I read GWTW when I was nine years old. Charlaine Harris refers to it a few times in then SVM books, and I think Sookie and Scarlett have a lot in common. They are strong, stubborn, often selfish women, (Scarlett is much more of course) who are devoted to their social peers, whether they should be or not, and, like many Southern women, worry way too much about what people think, and not to mention, behaving like a lady. This new story will be off-canon to a point, because plenty of canon has been written, and besides, I think things have to change for Scarlett to be able to grow up and heal.

I've already received some hate mail about my Scarlett, less than a thousand words into the fic. I'm used to it, I got a lot regarding my Sookie over the years, still do from time to time. To anyone who isn't sure how I feel, I am Sookie and Scarlett sympathetic, a shipper all the way. It's not easy being a strong woman, and it certainly was harder in the 1800s. They are deeply flawed women, but survivors, and courageous, much more so than the men they love.

Peace and love to all,

Cyn

Hello, cracker crunchers. It's been a minute, eh?

I will be taking Death Eatin' a Cracker down sometime around the new year. I'm on to new projects. Thank you for your support over the past five years. It truly means the world to me. I appreciate every reader and writer on this site. Keep doing what makes you happy. In the words of George Eliot, it's never too late to become what you might have been.

Love :)

misscyn

As a side note, until I take this story down I will not be accepting any guest reviews. Some apparent 14-year-old virgin with no sense of humor left me ten negative, judgmental reviews in the last 24 hours and it really bummed me out. It did not appear that she had read the books, nor did she have any understanding of vampire romances or even alpha males. I shouldn't have let it bother me, but she just kept doing it, and I was tired and stressed and didn't need that shit. So. No guest reviews will be allowed. Thanks for understanding.

Peace.
