News

I just finished a novella and am waiting to hear back on whether it will be accepted or not. That's always the hard part, the waiting, the nail-biting... I am currently working on Jory and a paranormal novella as well. Once Jory's done then I have to finish Domin's book. And that doesn't seem like much compared to others who write much faster than me but I'm moving too, (from Hawaii to Kentucky- big change), and have to pack. The packing is the hard part because there's no way I can take all of my books with me on the plane. They have to be packed. But which ones?
I have my favorites, the comfort reads, that I pick up again and again. And then I have my yaoi that I flip through and I just got my new Teahouse Chapter 3 and In These Words Chapter 6 and yeah they're small and most of my books are in paperback but we're talking about being away from them for at least a month...Funny how I'm used to having everything where I can just grab it and read it and the thought of being separated from it, for just a short time, is tough. I wonder how heavy my luggage will be?

  1. That is a big culture change....but think of it as an adventure and a quest for knowledge. That might make it a little easier.

  2. It's so interesting that you get nervous when you submit a book - I can't imagine any publisher turning down a book of yours! I'm not trying to suck up or anything, but I love your books and have re-read all of them at least once. So, I'm sure you have nothing to worry about, well except for fans like me bugging you about when your next book will be released!

    Good luck with the move, I was an Air Force brat growing up and moved countless times. It is always stressful, but new places are usually fun.

  4. If you are anything like me, I would leave most clothes and shoes and pack mostly books:-) you are the reason I bought a kindle. So I can lug timing, the guardian, Romanus and Change of heart series everywhere.

  6. You'll love Kentucky, it's great. I lived in Louisville for seven years and loved it! You actually get full seasons! Unlike me who lives in Chicago where I get four months of summer, a month of fall, five months of winter and two months of spring. LOL! Happy moving and good luck!

  7. I'd mail a box to myself. Media mail is cheap cause the post office can stack stuff on top of it without worrying about it being squished, but I'd shrink wrap it before paper wrapping it just in case of leaks. That way you can send your comfort reads on to meet you if you're having a bad day and have the yaoi to flip through without ignoring your travel companions on the trip.

  8. Thanks for all the advice guys, my brother is keeping most of my furniture so that helps so much with the non-shipping. Now I just have to ship all the books. :)

  9. Finally getting off that rock huh? ;) Your writing speed is perfect. Every book you've put out shows that. Can't wait for all you've got coming. Good luck moving. I always say I'm not going to move unless I win the lottery. That way I can just take my pictures and what notts and buy everything new when I get to my new place.(clothes and all) LOL ;)
