So, here it is 10 days later and I feel better about myself. I am no longer behind as I was. Why you ask? I have finished the first draft of See No Evil and it is with the betas. Woot, woot, woot!
Okay, let me calm down. There have been some positive things to come out of the betas. I shuddered from what they might think, but all seem to enjoy the book and with a few more tweaks, hopefully I can give my editor a clean draft so she won't have to work so hard.
I also figured out what was going on with Hirah so now I believe I'm back on track with her too. The 2nd book is on its way to the editor so I will get her out by 1/31 at the latest. Also, UTG2 will be out. I'd like to do a free day on KU for it and hopefully draw up interest in the 2nd one. I'll be starting the third in a couple of days.
I did start a new story with my co-author. We're already at 18k! YIKES. It's a different kind of story for Michael. A love tale that has a few bumps in the road, but will eventually get to a happy ending. You know my guy muse likes complex shit, but because of the character, who is really quirky, long winded, I decided Michael should write him. We'll see how it goes, but I'm excited for the book. Its going well.
Once I finish Hirah 3, I'll be starting the Immortals series with Michael. I'm looking to get the first book out by April, with each book coming out every other month. What it looks like now is 5 books so we'll see what happens. To satisfy the characters Ryland and Valios, I'm doing a sexy short for them that I'll publish on Wattpad, as well as the Lit blog and Michael's. I already dreamed about what would happen, so it should be very easy to write. Damn muses!
I also have Smoke on the backburner and I need to get back to it. I won't pick it back up until Hirah 3 and UTG 3 are done however so it might be awhile. They are screaming in my head so it is NOT a dead story. It will be finished and go to a publisher in the next few months.
I'm still working on my DD fanfic, but I have to admit, it has taken a back seat to my published work. I hope to get it done soon. And there's the short I was doing with the guy above and three of my favorite characters but I scrapped it because I didn't like the way it was going. I'll post the sext scene on Wattpad and on Lit Blog in a bit in case you're interested. It's just a sexy scene! I have another fanfic to do as well, so I hope to get that on the blogs eventually.
So much to do, I can hardly keep up, but at least I'm back on track again. I finally see some positives coming out of all of my anxious moments and hopefully that will get me to where I want to be in my career!
Thanks for listening!
