Welp ... here it is. Another Monday meaning a new week.

With the new week comes new challenges.

Finishing, editing, publishing. Repeat.

A I said in the last post, the middle part is become more of a PITA than the first and last. And here I thought finishing would be harder! Pssh

Actually, it was a little hard with my Valentine's Day short. Ry and Val didn't want to stop talking to me. Obviously, they can't wait for their stories to begin in the Immortals series, but due to the word cound restrictions, I had to cut them off. And then there's the thing I had with title. Er, um, I had no idea what to call it. I even talked it over with my husband. I wanted something cool with soul, demon, and vampire and... well, I ended up with My Demon, My Vampire.


The characters say that in the story and it kinda stuck so for now, that is the title. It ended up with 10, 032 I believe. And it did get me excited to write the series. I hope it makes people want to get into Immortals which I am starting this week. The first characters aren't Valios and Ryland, so we'll see how that goes.

See No Evil is with the editor and Hirah 2 is back on me. I've already started going through it and will give it a once over before putting it on Amazon.

My story with my co-author hit a temporary snag but we're back on track. It is at 47k so I hope to get it done soon. And I'm opening up Smoke again. WOOHOO. It will be nice to get Smoke done by March and hopefully send it somewhere to be published by winter.

With all that's going on in the world, I have to say I've been burying my head in fiction. Whether its writing or reading, I find being in my own head is the safest place to be. No, it doesn't mean I don't care, but I just choose to only say a couple of things then do what I can to fight for what I believe in. If I worried about every damn thing coming down the pike, I'd be crazier than I already am.

So, today's message? Do what you love. Enjoy it. Cherish it, because you never know if you might not be able to do it again. Writing is my escape. Its how I cope. Sure, I have my family and friends, but my fiction is what I use to temporarily forget about my problems and the world's. Its the best medicine out there!

Oh and my muse is John Kenney. I adore that picture! Look at that hair!

Greetings! Another post by me, triad writer talking about my muses. This week, i'm talking about Michael and his love for writing about demons.

Not sure where it started, maybe with Vertigo and then continuing on to his story, Demon Be Mine in the Only That Night Anthology.

Michael loves stories about the undead. Camps, shifters, demons preferably who have a sexy side, kill for the good, and fall in love. He loves the complicated plots, the excitement of putting together paranormal stories with some kind of message. We've read a few stories but we'd like to read more to get ourselves prepared for what we want to talk about. Something about a hero that's not squeaky clean like Superman but has powers, is devious, and sexy as all hell. We want to write that story or stories and damnit we want it now but I am a triad author which means 2 other muses ache for my attention too. *sigh*

But the thing I love about the Michael muse he's patient. He'll wait his turn. Unlike BL who is rebellious and Rawiya, well she's patient too but even she can be antsy when she wants. Michael will wait until I have the time to write those stories. We'll continue to take notes, read other books, and then when I have the time to get the details for the next paranormal, the Michael muse will be happy.

So what is this one about? Well, it's a continuation of the N'awlins Exotica Paranormal with Demon Be Mine in the same series. In Mon Amour, the character Ryder speaks about some kind of undead creature coming after his Sire. The thought is this same being killed his vampire maker and Ryder would like to find it to avenge his death. In Demon Be Mine, Valios is a soul catcher demon who mistakenly falls for an angel. There's more to his story with angel Calisto and I'll intersect that with the vampire stories to create a whole new series.

UGH! So much easier said than done but I'm looking forward to it. Just something about demons... I dunno... The man above Tangi will be one of them in this collection to come.

Oh I can't wait but there's more to do with N'awlins Exotica in the real world. The underworld will just have to wait along with Michael for their time to be written!

* * * *


For this week, I'm doing a lot of fanfic writing with edits. BL is doing Under the Gun to get ready to send in and then I'll be doing Wild Horses.

After that, I'll be releasing Guardian Angel under Michael, and working on the Wretched, the sequel to Guardian, and Something Like Jayden with Rawiya.

I have to start subbing again! GAH! I'm so used to doing my own thing but I hope my next 2 books will be worthy of a publisher.

Wish me luck!
