Now, it's really no secret around here that I love jimhines dearly. He was one of the first DAW authors to reach out to me and say "welcome to the family" (andpuff doesn't count, since we've known each other for years). He's been supportive, sane, and willing to pat me on the head when I'm flailing hysterically. Since we share an editor, this may have been born partly out of the desire to have me not drive said editor insane, but I try to interpret things positively.
Jim is a nice guy. That's one of the best things about him. That he's just a damned nice guy. And he's auctioning off an ARC of The Mermaid's Madness, sequel to The Stepsister Scheme, to benefit the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
It's a good cause. It's a good book. And he's a damn good guy.
