Behold, the House of Bitches will be offline on Thursday 5 February for Routine Maintenance. Please do not be alarmed, for we will return, with snark, fun, festivities, and the announcement of the Willig contest winners.

Please stand by. Your visit is important to us.

    NOOOOOO! How will I survive without my Bitchery fix? *starts huffing stories now!*

    word: Progress17. I suppose this is progress. I hope the site is 17 times better when you return!

    Oh noooooooo! How terrible! A whole day without the Bitchery! Where is everyone going to hang out on that dark day?

    I am glad I asked that question—because I am here to make a humble suggestion: There is a bizarre and fascinating short story contest going on right now called Broken Pencil Magazine’s Indie Writers Deathmatch, wherein 8 short stories go head to head in an online arena. Commenters are encouraged to hurl insults and encouragement, as well as vote on the story they like best, 1 vote per hour per IP address, 24 hours a day. The stories that are up right now are both very good—though one is beating the other quite badly. How about it, ladies—why don’t you go check it out, and perhaps throw the underdog a vote? Unless you really prefer the story that is already winning, of course. And this contest is not for the faint of heart—so I thought of the Bitchery right away. It’s not romance, but it is compelling stuff nonetheless :o}

    Here is the link: http://www.brokenpencil.com/deathmatch or you can click the link I have provided in lieu of a name.

    SB Sarah and SB Candy: If you want to post and actual post about the contest for the benefit of those who might not see this comment, it won’t hurt my feelings! The bitches need somewhere to go whilst you clean house, no? Why not let them get their angst alleviated by insulting, taunting, and baiting a writer—ot perhaps even soothing their ruffled feathers with a few kind words. Whaddya say?

    I am rewording my comment to be linkless, so it won’t register as spam—sorry to the SBs who’ve been sent an additional email with a link and who might have to moderate my original commet, which went something (okay, exaclty) like this:

    iIf you want to have a look at the contest, go to the Broken Pencil Magazine website, and you will be able to view all the stories. I can’t link it, because it will make akismet go crazy. A google search will do nicely, with the keywords Indie Writers Deathmatch.

    Thanks for listening, all! Try to survive one day without this site with a stiff uper lip. When all else fairs, pour yourself a stiff cocktail :o}

    word: must45

    See, even the computer knows I must have my bitches with my morning coffee or my whole day goes topsy turvy.  Can’t you at least send us on a scavenger hunt so we have something to do in your absence?

    I’d pout, but my mother taught me better.
