Whew.

He looks how I feel. It's been a topsy turvy week that started promising and ended on kind of a sour note. 

RL, got in the way of me finishing Immortals 1 and Nola Nuptials on Monday, but I did just finish both first drafts and I'm pretty pleased. I also came to the conclusion I write better love scenes after I've had liquor. ITS TRUE! I actually do well with a lot of my writing when having libations. However, I know I can't do that all the time, so ... *shrugs* When I can't get booze, I'll have to make do.

So that leaves me with these WIP's

Veronica *I've decided to pick up another project with co-author. We'll be doing shorts so Veronica will have two stories. Woot!
Michael * With those two finished, I can concentrate on PROTEKT 3 and Gren Dumont. I also have Smoke edits and edits to come on Tempo
BL * BL and I have plenty of things to work on. UTG3, Hirah 3, the follow up to Odd Couple, Wild Horses, and new stories that would like to see the light of day. *groans* Damn muse!
Rawiya * Poor Rawiya. I'd like to do at least one more book for her by the end of the year, but there are 4 other secret muses wanting work. Grr. I will try to get something done for this muse. I do adore her, and wish I had more hands. :D

I've also decided to add yet another muse to my list. If you follow Nola Exotica, you know about Ryland Durand. He is the author half of the twins. Well, once I finish Immortals, any vampire books I write will be authored under Ryland. It will be Michael writing as RM Durand. It won't be something I do all the time, but any MM vampire, will be under him. <3 I have a couple of vamp stories on my WIP list, so no worries there. I'll find use for him.

That is a lot right? Ugh! This is why I drink. #damnmuses. 

Anyways, the muse at the top is Marcus Patrick. Whatever happened to him?

Ta ta for now!

The title of this post, is WRITING!

I know what you're saying. Shar isn't your blog, taboos and perversions about WRITING? It sure is, but I wanted to chat more about what I'm working on. 

For some reason I am feeling EXTREMELY chatty today. I've written three blog posts and this is the 4th. What can I say, I have a lot on my mind. 

Ahem

Okay, so I'm working on Nola Nuptials and Immortals One Demon be Mine. If I can stop blogging and get back to these stories, I should have both finished by Monday. Demon is at the point where the MCs want to jump in bed. They're diggin each other, blah blah. And Nola was a request from a reader to see a wedding. Frankie and Kajika's wedding since they've been through so much. They are my most beloved characters so I'm giving them their HEA.

Once I'm done with these two, I will start PROTEKT 3. I have the title, I wrote the synopsis. My editor likes it so she is waiting for me to send her the damn book. I'm also starting Veronica's first short story. It will be very simple, sexy, erotica MF to get her going before I start writing longer works. This is to get her out there and hope she grabs some people along the way. When I finish one of those, I'll be working on Our Father Gren DuMont which is the twins PREQUEL. I'm also doing a story for Rawiya. It looks to be Sugar Daddy and I'll be making it simpler instead of the complex plot I'd already done. 

By the time May is done, I'll be ready to pull on BL again and we'll start with UTG3 as well as Hirah 3. Hirah 3 is done first draft wise, but I plan on adding more and perhaps changing some things. BL and I also would like to do a new erotica series called Fender Benders which will be all metal erotica shorts. We'll see how that goes!

In this mosh of info, you're probably wondering what happened with Smoke. Well, Smoke is getting read by the betas and I already have 3 people who've gotten back to me. One wasn't okay with the 3 POV thing, so I separated it in chapters. When I get the others back, I'll begin going through chapter by chapter to see what can be cut or added. I'm sitting on 72 chapters. Some are long, some aren't. If I figure out that the chapter isn't needed it will get deleted. 

Tempo was actually accepted by Evernight which gives me and Michael our first contract of 2017! *throws confetti* the plan was to have 10 submissions this year. *grimaces* Right now I'd settle for five but we'll see what happens. I'm also self-pubbing books and as you know that takes time and money. I need covers and editing done on these books, so we shall so how it all goes!

That's the update for now. 

Oh and the muse? That is Mario Dapper. He is Veronica's first vic ... I mean, muse. *winks* A sexy MF IR with some heat. *winks*
