Coincidentally, as Romantic Behavior is released, I’m on a trip to celebrate being married 15 years. Our anniversary was in December, but we wanted to go this cool resort up in Finland where you can watch the Northern Lights from a glass igloo. That’s probably where I am right now as you’re reading this.
So, given that I’m on an anniversary trip AND Cari and I are releasing our book about Andreas and Darren (finally) getting hitched, here are nine random facts about the day I married the guy who supplied “Witt” to my pen name:
1. I walked down the aisle to the Imperial Death March.
2. The day before was bright, sunny, and unseasonably warm. The day of? SO MUCH RAIN. (To be fair it was December in Seattle)
3. Five of my ex-boyfriends attended.
4. I wore my mom’s dress.
5. We got married in my parents’ industrial screen-printing shop.
6. I had gotten a new tattoo at my bachelorette party two weeks prior, and it features prominently in the “taking off the garter” photos. My mom was unimpressed.
7. We had a dry wedding, and instead used Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider…which meant basically raiding the Martinelli’s stock at every grocery store within a 20-mile radius.
8. One of my bridesmaids had a horse fall on top of her the day before the wedding, but still showed up and actually thought “I don’t want to ruin your pictures” was a good reason to take the bandage off her sprained wrist. (Dude. No.)
9. We met in March, got engaged in July, and married in December. It was not a shotgun wedding.
And I’m still pretty sure my wedding (and the planning leading up to it) was less chaotic than Darren and Andreas’s. But would you really expect any less?
About Romantic Behavior
Detective Andreas Ruffner is no fool—he’s found a man who loves him, puts up with him, and has stuck with him through hell and back, and it’s time to put a ring on it. Darren Corliss is the love of his life, and he wants the whole world to know it.
Now the fun part—the wedding!
Well, after the not-so-fun part of planning the wedding in between dealing with overbearing and impossible-to-please family members. With future mothers-in-law driving them both up a wall, the guest list growing out of control, and the wedding getting ever more complicated, Darren and Andreas have to wonder if they’re in over their heads.
But they’re going to make it to the altar if it kills them . . . and at this rate, it just might.
About the Bad Behavior Series
About Cari Z.
Cari Z was a bookworm as a child and remains one to this day. In an effort to combat her antisocial reading behavior, she did all sorts of crazy things, from competitive gymnastics to alligator wresting (who even knew that was legal!) to finally joining the Peace Corps, which promptly sent her and her husband to the wilds of West Africa, stuck them in a hut, and said, "See ya!" She also started writing, because some things she just thought she could do better. She's still climbing that ladder, but can't stop herself from writing, or from sharing what she creates.
Cari enjoys a wide range of literary genres, from the classics (get 'im, Ahab) to science fiction and fantasy of all types, to historical fiction and reference materials (no, seriously, there are so many great encyclopedias out there). She writes in a wide range of genres as well, but somehow 90% of what she produces ends up falling into the broad and exciting category of m/m erotica. There’s a sprinkling of f/m and f/f and even m/f/m in her repertoire, but her true love is man love. And there's a lot of love to go around.
Cari has published short stories, novellas, and novels with numerous print and e-presses, and she also offers up a tremendous amount of free content on Literotica.com, under the name Carizabeth.
About L.A. Witt
L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut . . .
L. A.’s backlist is available on her website, and updates (as well as random thoughts and the odd snarky comment) can be found on her blog or on Twitter (@GallagherWitt).
