ETA

on the magical het romance from Changeling Press, Nov 11.

Yay

Also in November, a new single shot from Torquere called Partners on the Trail. Set in 1880s New Mexico, the story is about cowboys Hank and Jasper, who struggle to deal with falling in love in a world that doesn't accept that at all...

More on the print books

and also other stuff

It's amazing how holding a paperback with your name on the cover makes you squee. I love ebooks, but having the tactile sensation of *my* book is just awe inspiring.

The new het romance from Changeling press (ebook, approx 15000 words) is supposed to come out in November. I haven't seen cover art or gotten an exact date.

The sequel to the book in paperback (which is Jumping Into Things from Torquere Press, available for $13.95 in trade sized paper) is half done. I've decided on a title; I'm calling it Landing with Both Feet. It should be out in the first couple of months of 2006, and I'm thrilled to pieces with how it's going, despite the angst.

Now if I could just hear back on some of the multitude of stories I have out...

Cowboy Up, from Torquere Press will be out on the 15th. The anthology rocks the house, and has a story in there by meeee! Ahem. Actually I'm rather proud of Jorge and Pete, so go grab one when it comes out. It also features Sean Micahel, BA Tortua, AM Riley, Parhelion, Chris Owen, and... oh poo. I know there's more. As soon as I look it up I'll edit ;)

so

so, I'm making my daily word goal. Go me. I have a ton of shorts I need to send out, some erotic, some not. I've got two slightly dark, slightly twisted stories that are homeless and I think, well done. But not erotic.

What else. My editor at Changeling seems like a very nice lady. I've been so accustomed to working with the folks at Torquere that I admit I went straight into panic mode when she mentioned re-writes, but I think I'm ready now ;)

Re-writes and I have a love hate relationship. Heaven knows I'm not perfect, but once I'm done with a story, to my mind at least, it's hard to revisit it. I know what happens. The end. It's not that I mind the work. I'm just all about the new and shiny. Gnat on crack, that's me.

Is there anyone out there but the viagra spammers? I've gotten 2 comments in this journal, both spam...

Novelette accepted

Changeling Press has accepted a short novela (about 13000 words) called the Magic Touch. It's het, erotic romance, and very fun magical nonsense. I'll post here when I find out when it's due out, but I'm excited to be working with them!
