Well it's been a while hasn't it?

It's been a while since I did an update, so here's what I'm doing right now.

I have the edits for The Prince He Loved and I'm working my way through those. The edits for Pearls Like Rain were turned in yesterday and the cover is done and posted here on my website.

Another Contract

I just signed another contract with Torquere Press for Forgiving Valentine a Valentine's Day story that will be released in 2014. This is my third contract with them since October. I plan to write and send them a few more stories this year also.

In addition to that Auburnimp has returned and we're working on the Sakura Blades series again. We'll see how that goes.

Another Sale-and More News from the Michael's Muse

Submitted another story, Sharing Tomorrow to Torquere Press Saturday--the 15th was the deadline for the theme I submitted to--and received the contract on Tuesday. I'm pretty happy with that and plan to submit more stories to them soon.

Beneath an Emerald Sky-SOLD

I suppose I forgot to post this. My cyberpunk m/m, Beneath an Emerald Sky has been sold to Torquere Press for their "Birthstones" line.

I plan to write another story for this line in the very near future. First though I'm busy putting the final touches on The Prince He Loved that scifi m/m I've mentioned before so I can get it sent out to the intended publisher in December.

NaNoWriMo 2012

I wrote Mercykill 4, Reaper's Delight for this year's NaNoWriMo. I started on November 1st and finished on the 16 with 98,655 words. Even for me that's fast and I set a new NaNo record for myself.

Edited to add: I verified Reaper's Delight and discovered the manual count I'd done of the individual chapters somehow missed a chapter. Turns out I had 108,703 words. Gah. I may have to do a bit of trimming on that book.

Mercykill-Looking for a good home

I was going through my old book files the other day and I stumbled on the two finished and one unfinished Mercykill books. I started reading them and realized how good they still are years later. That being the case, I decided to start writing the boys again. I'm nearly done with book three--which was my NaNoWriMo novel from 2007, man where did the time go?--and plan to do book 4 during this year's NaNo.

Now all I need to do is find a good home for the boys.

Keeping Busy

I've written three entirely new stories since my last post. The Strongest Magic, a male/female Halloween paranormal erotic romance; Distance of Memory a female/female/male fantasy erotic romance and Beneath an Emerald Sky a cyberpunk gay erotic romance. The first two are already off on submission, the third one will be going out next week. The three stories I finished this month were all for specific calls at various publishers. So now the waiting has begun. I'll keep you posted on what happens with the stories.
