Hello everyone.

It’s been a while since I last blogged. Oh, who am I kidding. I haven’t put up a blog post in two months and I’m so sorry about that. My life has been kind of… stuck in limbo and it reflected both in my writing, my health journey, and my blogging

I will now take each of these issues one, at a time.

LT3 The Way To Your Heart Blog Hop, Contract Announcements and Proud To Be A Vampire Call

heartbloghopmedLess Than Three Press’ birthday is coming up, and in order to celebrate, there will be a hop of the LT3 writers, me inclusive. Yay! I’m looking forward to it. Will find out what the central theme is, so I can start thinking of what writing I will come up with for the hop, and of course, I will be doing a giveaway.

The contract for A Second Chance came in, and I’ve filled it, and sent it back. It looked so lovely. My books are growing you guys, and I’m so thrilled about it. Looking forward to when the edits come in, so I cans start working on it, and then I will have an idea of when the book will be released.

Writing for the Proud to Be a Vampire Call. The story is coming along, but it looks like it will be a lot. This will be my longest book, and I hope it will be a good book that people will love to read. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Will soon get some snippets of the book out so you guys can be getting an idea of what the book will be like. So stayed tuned for that as well.

Purchases

TEHAIGrowing up, I was never a girly girl. I was an only child who had a ton of male cousins and way too many uncles, so what I found fascinating were jeans, tree climbing and make-up avoidance. I was also not really a fan of gay relationships.

The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

The Next Big Thing

Hmmm, so this is the second blog hop I’m participating in. The first, I joined very late, and my post didn’t come up during the hop, but was published like waaay later. This one, hopefully, will be ready on time.  I was tagged by Lacie J. Archer in the next big thing which is a worldwide hop that takes readers to various author’s blogs, to read their posts on certain questions that have been asked.

These are my answers to the questions:

New Year Dreams

It’s been a really busy last couple of months, and it’s not a surprise I guess that I’ve got absolutely nothing written down. Days when I can finally catch a breath and I look back and realise that I’ve actually not been doing any writing has me very depressed. And now I’m contemplating adding more work to my plate. Exactly how am I going to get it all done is the question? I don’t have a split personality nor do I have a twin who can go to work on my behalf, while leaving me alone to read and write.

But, writing makes me happy. To see the words on paper or screen fills me with a sense of satisfaction. If it means that I won’t get as much sleep as I want to, then so be it. My stories have been getting release for the last two months: Binding Ties came out in November, and Saved by a Demon just got released, and I haven’t even had the time to feel that sense of accomplishment.

All the same, this is a new year, and new year means new beginnings: a lesson learnt by my character, Parker in Saved by a Demon. So I am going to stick to getting more writing done. And the first means towards achieving that goal will be to start working for my story that I need to be ready before the end of February. Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that I can indeed get all that I want done accomplished this year. Starting with a better job and of course more written books.

Good News and Excerpt

My submission for the Rocking Hard Submission Call that was put up on Less Than Three Press has been accepted. The story is about a rock star and a song writer and it was fun and a bit difficult to write. I say it was difficult because like I mentioned in an earlier post, I kept putting off the writing, and when I was ready to get to work, my room got flooded and my laptop got soaking wet. I had to write the entire story in a notebook, while praying fervently that my laptop can be fixed. I certainly didn’t have money to purchase a new one, and my friends were all busy with theirs, so I just had to hope for the best. The laptop was finally fixed (except that I now had to get a new battery. I still haven’t gotten a new battery yet, but I should be able to get me a new one by the middle of the month), and I had to spend an entire week typing and editing. Finally the story was ready, sent to my beta reader and then sent it in for submission.

When I opened my mailbox two days ago and saw the acceptance email, I felt a variety of emotions. The relief that a story I’d poured my heart into (I  had to write some songs and trust me, song writing is not so easy. Lol) was accepted; the satisfaction that I was able to actually have my work done with all the troubles that crept up and the wonder that I wrote and people believed that the words deserved to be read by others, not just myself. I think that is what keeps me writing. It’s the wonder of watching words form on page and having my characters loved and understood. They all have stories to tell, and when a story I write is accepted, I nod my head at the realization that the character was heard.

My kitsune/wolf-dog shifter story that is part of the Bestiary anthology will be released in exactly forty days from now, and I’m excited about that as well. Will write in another post why I love that story so much and how I got hooked on the character of Taeyo and his mate, Germane. I have an excerpt available for you to read. Hope you like it.
