Later: Mom and I went to the grocery store. It was very busy. After I got home, I finished Rat Bastard. I read Branding the Virgin. The authors' content warning was that the book was ridiculous, and it was. It had a pregnant virgin, Insta-Love, and the healing power of the right woman. I didn't rate it. I should have gone into it like I go into an mpreg book, willing to suspend that much disbelief.
Much later: I proofed some more of that book and chatted with the author (A.W.) again. I enjoy chatting with her.
