Sooo... I'm done. You say with WHAT? PROTEKT 3 is done. Crossfire, yes that one!

YAY!!! 

*runs around the room screaming*

Believe me, I'm stoked to finally finish it. Not because I didn't like the story, but because it took so long to figure out exactly how I wanted everything to go. 

PLOTTING ANYONE?

Yeah, maybe I should've plotted it thoroughly, but when I wrote the synopsis, I knew exactly what I wanted to occur. I just didn't know the map to get there. GEEZ! Regardless, I wrote the ending and a per usual, I don't really like it. Meaning that last sentence. That last part that supposed to leave you with all the feels. 

UGH!

This one isn't giving me that, so I'm taking a break from it, then picking it back up in a couple of days to edit. I also need to find a beta or 2 for it before I turn it in so maybe the publisher might have it by September 20th!

WHICH IS... the same day I release Veronica's first book. Due to time and other issues, I won't be doing the short for her right now, but I will be start her next novella that I will send to a publisher. Hopefully, you'll check out her first story. It's an interracial romance called Riding the Curve. It's a short, sexy erotica story for grownups.

*giggles* 

AHEM. 

I really hop you check that out. Then, BL's two shorts should be out shortly after that. UTG3's cover is in the works. Edits are done. Still waiting on edits for Hirah, so I hope to get them both out by the end of this month.

So what's next in WIP's? ANASA, of course. The poor man is chomping at the bit, so he'll finally get to start this weekend. Then, I'll follow with Rawiya's MM, and BL's short once Rawiya is finished. As always a bunch to do, but at least CROSSFIRE is in the books. 

Well, first draft anyway!

*pats myself on the back*

Do you know how hard it is to finish a book with so much doubt swirling in your brain? I'm sure you do, so cut me some slack!

Ah. Even more relief!

I can breathe a little bit easier now with yet another book off my WIP list. My first draft of Hirah 3 is done. So, I'll let her fester, then go back when it's time to edit. I worried I wouldn't be able to pull it off, but once I gave them something to disagree on, the story wrote itself. Then, it was sweet reunion. It ended up being about 24k, which is cool.

Now, on to the next project. I am still doing edits on See No Evil and at this point I'm looking at February for it to come out. This is difficult, because again, it's being self-published. So when the money is low and I'm not able to pay an editor, the book gets shelved. I'll finally be able to get it to her so she can work on it.

The next project is a Valentine's Day short I committed to doing by February 5th. I don't have a title, but it will be the same story I mentioned in my last post with Ryland and Valios. I'm thinking since it is mostly about lust and not love, it should be an easy task. I'm hoping to drum up some readership for Michael's Immortal Souls series, which I am starting immediately.

At this point, I am ready to put BL away for the moment. We're going to finish UTG3, then I will stop writing with her until May. Then, I will pick up the follow-up to Odd Couple, perhaps My Lieutenant, as well as more books in the Metalrotica series. There is also a chance I will work with my co-author at that time on another book with BL as well.

While Michael and I finish up the short, we will do Immortals, and start the last book in the PROTEKT series. We also have my book with my co-author and Smoke to finish. I plan on getting at least 4 books for Michael done before I start with BL again.

I'm also planning a book for Rawiya and 2 of my new muses. At least one in the time I leave BL alone. Geez! I'm making a tall order for myself, but I really feel I can get something accomplished.

With January almost done, I have several releases to look forward to.

(January)
Under the Gun 2 re-release
Hirah #2


(February)
See No Evil
Wounded Pride (DSP)


(March)
Hirah #3
Under the Gun 3


(April)
Demon be Mine (Immortals 1)

I also have books going to publishers. So I hope this means new readership throughout the year. and my anxieties are gone for now, but perhaps with the more I get accomplished, the more I'll forget to worry.

Oh and you ask, why I have Jason Momoa up there? Well if you didn't know, he's my muse for Valios. *fan self* He's such a charmer, but he's a demon too. ;)

Thx for listening

Greetings folks! WHEW I almost didn't make it. Remember the last post were I was like 8k behind? Well last weekend I kicked ass, writing over 10k and then finishing by Wednesday as I wanted. Wednesday was my day off so I was able to stay up late, write for the majority of the morn after the kiddies went to school and make the 50k by nightfall!

Woot. *waves pom poms*

I'm damn proud of myself. The book is almost done too, currently sitting at 43k plus, it shall be done between 50-55k. Yay. You don't know how happy this makes me. In the midst of stress over real life, your job, kids, etc, its great to feel good about something you care about. I love to write and I love my characters so I'm pleased to have completed Nano and seeing it published next year. I'm looking to 2/17/14 which is my 8th Wedding anniversary. I plan on being in New Orleans again so I hope to make this happen.

Nano is truly a test, especially when you have kids, an EDJ, a significant other. It's hard enough with the distractions, even harder with the aforementioned important things. The EDJ almost killed me but I made it and I'm very happy that it didn't completely stop me from making my goal!

So, I plan on completing by Sunday. *crosses fingers* I'd like to move on to other stories and get ready to promote my Xmas release. To all those who attempted, wtg, even if you didn't win. The idea is you tried it. You're still a winner
!
