I'm alive!

I have been working on a book since before Romantic Times which was the last con I went to back in May. Holy. Crap. Is there anyone who writes slower than me? Damn. A friend of mine wrote 40k in a week. Not kidding. Amazing. Maybe in my next life I will be like that. In the meantime, I do need to nudge my muse just a little. I think she's sitting on the couch watching Supernatural reruns and eating Oreos. Like either one of us needs Oreos...

Anyway, I started off trying to write the 3rd book in my Timing universe but after months of wrestling with Glenn, (which sounds cooler than it is), I have tabled it for a bit. I also have my warders on my "to do" list but that one wasn't moving any easier. I know that not every book wants to to be told  but when nothing is working, it's time to take a step back.

So... for about a year now I have had shifters on the brain. I've wanted to write different ones than my werepanthers but I have been worried that whatever I did might end up sounding like Jin and Logan and the gang. But still, I wanted to write more and from the alpha's perspective this time...and so I did that instead. I finished and submitted it and hopefully it will be accepted and I will have good news. I also wrote a Christmas story for the DSP advent so if that one is accepted, that would be good to. We'll see. Cross fingers for me.

And so now, I have a contemporary novella I'm working on and then I am going to hit my warders hard and then...Glenn. Maybe I need a cattle prod.

Hope everyone has an awesome week. My kids go back to school on Wednesday, glory hallelujah. :)

  1. wondering about the no posts, just reread Timing and hope there is more Stef and Rand in the book as I just love those two. Looking forward to reading something else different. But what about what happened to Dante and Noah?

  2. Thanks for the update Mary, can't wait to read the new shifter book along with the Xmas story. Is it panthers again or a different animal? Was also wondering how the novel with Cardeno C was coming along?

  5. Timing, timing, timing. It's all about the timing. Please have more Stef and Rand in this book. I can't wait to see how they both handle being parents.

  9. =>CATTLE PROD<= Just kidding! Honestly, happy to read anything you come up with. I understand that sometimes your characters don't want to play nice and you might need to give them a break...but I hope the break isn't TOO long as I'm really looking forward to Glen's story and the next chapter in the Warders series... Shifters from an Alpha perspective? Intrigued!
