What I’m Working On & What’s Happening
If you follow my #AYWN blog you may have noticed several things I’ve consistently skipped over. Well this is what I’m going to do about it. Stop trying. I’m going to set them aside and concentrate on other things. Because for me personally, nothing is worse than reading a book where you can tell the author’s mind was somewhere else. I’ll come back to them when I’m feeling the manuscripts again.
In light of this new light-bulb moment this is what’s happening. I’m working on a polyamorous bisexual vampire novel entitled Multifarious. The book is set in the world of “Life is Priceless” but has nothing to do with the series. The first peek into this world comes from my anthology submission Life is Unforgiving releasing in Storm Moon Press’ Serve Me anthology. Y’all can get a little preview of the world and Multifarious with that one. Personally, Life is Unforgiving is my favorite anthology submission I’ve done so far. I’m a whore for dubious/nonconsensual reads.
I’ve decided to write a polyamorous book (finally) because I’ve had several people come to me asking if I’d write one. If you don’t know, I’m polyamorous myself and enjoy a very healthy relationship. Hence; “ARE YOU GOING TO WRITE A POLY BOOK?!” From multiple people.
Moving on! I’m also going to concentrate on several anthology calls from Storm Moon Press. I’m pretty sure SMP is convinced I’m an anthology whore but that’s besides the point. Well, because I am. Which is ironic considering I don’t read anthologies all that often. I’m also going to concentrate on a book centering on WWII concentration camps. Don’t worry, it’s a romance. As to how it ends well… You just have to wait and see.
On another note: if you stalk me on Twitter or something you may or may not have seen a new change in my life. My friend Vicktor Alexander offered me the position of co-owner of his publishing house Rooster and Pig Publishing. I accepted. So now my time is divided between writing, going through edits, and running R&P behind the scenes.
I’ve thought a lot about publishing through my new co-owned company but I’ve decided against it. I want to feel the anticipation of “am I accepted or aren’t I?” like every other author. With going through my own company that feeling diminishes to near nil and that’s no fun. Plus, I love the satisfaction of knowing someone else thought my writing was good enough to publish. What? I’m narcissist so sue me.
There you have it. That’s what is happening with me.
What’s happening with you?
Do you know of Margie Church and Kb Cutter’s trilogy (two books out) about polyamory? It is a great series (The Razor Trilogy). First book is Desire’s Edge. It really helps people understand this is a viable choice not deviant behavior.
