I'll attempt to finish updating Buffy Noir here, but after that, all future stories and updates will be on AO3. 

 

Like most writers, I love and appreciate reviews and those who leave them. While some writers are able to respond to every review, I can't. This is true of a lot of writers. Some are just too busy and answering every review would cut too much into their time to write or sleep. For me, it's an anxiety issue. Because of my brain chemistry/life experiences, it isn't good for my mental health to try to respond to every single review. That doesn't mean I don't care.

So, if you've left me a review in the past or will in the future, just know that I really do appreciate the time and effort you put into it, even if I don't respond. Thank you. 

While reviews are an awesome way to engage with a writer and with readers, Chatzy is also a really good place for it, too. Since it's no longer linked to on this site, here it is: Spuffy Chat

Summary: Life was the usual same old thing – struggle to pay rent and my smoking hot secretary – until he came back into my life. A married old flame looking to me for help to find his missing wife. What should have been a simple, if uncomfortable, case ends up a twisted mess of doublecrosses and addictions and the feeling that something about reality itself just isn’t quite right. I don’t know how it’s all going to turn out, but I’ve got a very bad feeling about this.
