Me too. I tried to do the “put your phone in selfy mode to see the eclipse” and just ended up with this. –> Apparently, you needed the special glasses. Who knew. And now I have a summer cold, which probably also came from that stupid eclipse. It probably beamed cold spores into my eyes. Probably gave me this zit on my nose, too. Anyhoo, I want to thank you all for helping me with the launch of Pineapple Beach House! Hope you’re enjoying it! I just finished a Pineapple short story for the next Happy Homicides anthology that releases Oct 20. I’m also writing another short for the Christmas boxed set 12 Slays of Christmas and now it’s time to decide what to do next novel-wise. Let me know what you think… (this might not be fair since I probably have more Pineapple readers than anything else but…I’d be interested to see…) What should I write next?
