I hope everyone in the United States had a great 4th of July weekend! I ended up eating a lot of Chinese food and watching Iron Man and Iron Man 2 with my wife.
(And I’m jealous of all you folks arriving in DC for GCLS. Let the hug-fest begin!)
Last month I whined about how much I screwed around the last few weeks and am far behind the goals I set at the beginning of the year.
I didn’t have any cheese to offer with that whine and, to be honest, I’m not much of a wine drinker. It’s not surprising there wasn’t much in the way of commentary.
So let’s focus on the positive, eh?
I published Darkstone in January of this year. It’s a contemporary dark fantasy revolving around sex, rock & roll and evil magic. My star-crossed lovers come to the realization that one or the other must fail in their destinies if they’re ever to stay together.
As usual, once I’ve written a particular sub-genre, I run in the opposite direction.
It’s been a long time (eighteen years!) since I’ve written a historical romance. I’ve had one kicking around in my head for several years and finally decided to put words to digital paper.
If you’re interested, here’s an excerpt. Go ahead and read it. I’ll wait!
Hey! Welcome back!
Okay. So originally the book was titled Skagway Bride, since the story takes place near Skagway, Alaska. The name was nixed.
(Small wonder really. Who wants to read about a bride that’s a skag? Duh. Odd that I didn’t see THAT one coming…)
Anyhow the title has seen a couple of alterations. Therefore when I posted an earlier excerpt a few months ago on my website, it had a different title. That scene introduces Callie Glass.
Now I’m going to head back to my writing. No whine or cheese, but I’m still way behind schedule on my current work in progress!
