A Thing Explainer word checker

From the creator of the xkcd webcomic (and not kinky unless you make it so):

Want to try writing using only simple words? Here’s a writing checker you can use: xkcd.com/simplewriter. To help me write the words in my Up Goer Five picture, I taught my computer to watch my writing and tell me when one of the words I used wasn’t in the top ten hundred.…

I Visit PD Singer’s Blog

I was delighted to be a guest blogger at PD Singer’s site this morning, discussing something we have in common. She’s the only non-kinky author to have her own category on my Kindle. I read her short story On Call: Crossroads a while back [some reviews here] and several days ago picked up the full series. Crossroads is the last installment. Nothing kinky, but plenty of intelligence and more than one kind of warm fuzzies.

On Call: The Collection

The new doctor in town, Keith Hoyer has to relinquish care of his new patient, veterinarian Dante James, to privately treat their mutual cases of incurable attraction and terminal romance, complicated with relapsing lust.

Their backgrounds are different, their practices accidentally overlap, and their pasts have some hidden traps to negotiate. A fat, injured tabby cat, a truth-extracting, wounded dog, and a teen with a heartbreaking secret need Keith and Dante’s help. Every patient, furry or human, brings them a little closer together.
