Always the Sun

The next day we wrote a song. Because I woke up with the words all buzzing in my brain like a bunch of bees chasing each other around. I went and tried to write them down quietly in the windowsill, after eating half a cold Pop Tart to settle my stomach, but the sound of […]


In the suite Courtney had spread a bunch of stuff out on the big dining room table for us to autograph. Bart was already working his way through it. He barked at Chris, who was getting a Coke out of the refrigerator, to get his ass over there and do his part. I picked up […]

Who Wants to be the Disco King

We ordered lunch delivered. It wasn’t worth causing a scene to go downstairs and eat in the 24-hour coffee shop. I still believed that Bart and I could’ve without attracting too much attention, but we were forbidden when Toph came back upstairs with the latest headcount on the crowd outside. I felt a little bad […]

Pop Goes the World

(We’ve had two requests for another adults-only bonus scene, this one for what happened between Colin and Ziggy at the end of last chapter! It’s so soon after the last one, I’m going to repeat the offer, to get Bonus Scene #5, if anyone’s too broke to donate, do any of the following and email […]

It’s My Life

It’s probably going to come as no shock to any of you that in the back of that dark town car, Ziggy glued himself to me. This one wasn’t a stretch limo, just a Crown Vic, and I sat in the middle of the back seat with J. on one side and Zig on the […]

The Flat Earth

I walked. Digger didn’t try to follow me, though the cabbie yelled at me as I slammed the door. I cut over one block and then kept walking uptown. Summer heat rose up out of the sidewalk but it felt good to be walking, because then at least I was doing something beside thinking “what […]

She Drives Me Crazy

(Make sure if you haven’t read Saturday’s post that you read it first…) — Thank heaven for the merciful angels in this business who save us from ourselves. No, really. Remember that time Belle gave me a bottle of cough medicine and then made me lie down on the couch in her office? She came […]

World Party

The first person who accosted me in the main suite was someone I hadn’t been expecting but maybe should have. Lacey Montaigne hit me with a sing-songy “Da-ronnn!” and kissed me on the cheek like we actually knew each other. Fine. I know how to be nice to girls. Growing up with three sisters, it […]


Dinner was at the Russian Tea Room. I was expecting a place with doilies and small china cups. Apparently the name didn’t have much to do with the actual style of food. Far as I could tell it was standard fancy fare. Bart was always my gauge on that sort of thing and he gave […]

I Could Be Happy

It’s a good thing I had that nap in the car. The wake-up call came at sixty-thirty in the morning for me, meaning I got about four hours sleep after J. and I got out of the shower. Ziggy and I went to a radio station in midtown by limousine. In the back seat I […]
