May Plans

Once again, several months have passed since I last posted here. As before my previous post, I’ve been quite busy with writing, working, and family. But everyone I know is quite busy, so I’m certainly not alone with that.

One of the projects that’s been keeping me busy is River — the working title of a novel I finished writing last year, and I’ve been editing it this year. I’m pleased to say that I plan on self-publishing the novel in May. The editing process  seemed to take longer than it did, but I’ve grown to I appreciate the process of re-shaping of the story. Compared to the first draft, it’s more stream-lined and tighter. Hopefuly, making it a more enjoyable read.

I’ll give more info when the book becomes live on Amazon, as I’m still working on making it a little tighter. But it feels good to be almost finished. With the warmer temperatures of spring, it’s like the book is coming out of hibernation.

Goodbye January, Hello February

January wrapped up with a new flash-fiction story each day here on my blog, and the exercise was really good for me. It forced me to think of various situations that I normally don’t try out in writing. For example, the Brunettes Are Dangerous story and others in that series were a departure for me. And it felt great trying new things.

As we enter February, I’m shifting gears. Since Valentine’s Day is in this month, I’ll be focusing on love and romance — mostly through poetry. There may be flash fiction in there, but probably not much.

The poems won’t just be about passion, as I want to keep stretching from the lust that I’ve explored in many erotica stories. I’d like to also write about love beyond lust: the comfort of love felt through spending many years together. And the fear of opening up one’s heart. Then there’s when love is taken away, in a break-up. There’s unrequited love. Also, the love of friends — that’s extremely important. Let’s not forget the love of chocolate, as that’s no small thing, either.

Sometime during the month, I’ll let you know of a big sale of my ebooks that I’m planning. A couple of my ebooks are now available for free — but I’m going to set all the others at 99 cents each. Those ebooks that are short-story length (fewer than 10,000 words) are already 99 cents each, so this is no change at all. But I’m going to drop the price of my novellas and my novel to under a buck each. Just another way to celebrate the love of the month. 🙂
