Did you miss me?

Okay, I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front for the last month, I admit. Nothing bad happened, I just wanted some time off the online schedule. I actually went a few days not even looking at Facebook!

It was lovely! Social media is a blessing for a writer, but it can be a horrible, compulsive burden too.  Sometimes it's good to step back and get grounded in real life for a change.

Anyway, while I was away I...

  • Kicked off a new Victorian Gothic LARP game - we've done the site visit, written the outline plot, assembled a crew team, booked out for players (inside an hour of launch) and had our first crew meeting. I've got the best part of a year to make props and build up a good head of stress now, LOL.
  •  Adopted a new dog
  • Had my sister and her family up to visit
  • Had a bathroom refitted
  • Went to a family wedding

  • Self-published a new book (well, a reprint ... two reprints under one cover, to be precise)
  • And binge-watched a lot of TV, heehee, because NOW WE HAVE NETFLIX πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ

There will be posts to come on most of the above, no doubt, but I'm probably going to blog on a slightly more irregular schedule just so I don't feel like I'm on the treadmill again.

Hope you stick around! πŸ’•

Not retired quite yet

Yesterday, when I was updating the "coming next" page on my website, I noted that not only is the Lust in the Dust anthology out in July, I've also already got 4 short erotica stories due to be published this year (from Cleis, Stupid Fish and Infernal Ink).

Plus 2 non-erotica shorts from fantasy publishers! I happen to be signing a contract for one of them today.

You can read all the smutty details here

So despite my fair share of rejections, it's looking like a surprisingly lively this year after a VERY slow 2018. (I blame the house move.)

Next I need to get on with this reprint double:

Technically a COVER REVEAL!

And a reboot of this series:

... which I am determined to finish!
