How Did I Get Here?
I’m working on three stories at once. I don’t think I’ve ever done that before.
First, I’m editing some parts of Little Earthquakes and realizing that this could be a publishable shorty of a story. I hope I’m able to remove it from FictionPress in that case; it would be awesome and I’m really in love with the characters and the angle I’m taking with BDSM.
Next is a rewrite of To The Moon and Back, my attempt at a light sci-fi setting. So far, I’m liking it. This is the one I’m working on with the new tablet on transist, so the stopping and starting really show. When I get to really sit down and pound it out, this could be interesting.
And lastly is a real challenge that I haven’t actually given a title yet. Riptide has a short story prompt that’s open to not just their invited authors, and the theme just pulled a story right out of me. The hard part is getting it out of my head and onto the page. It’s challenge because it’s for Riptide, for fuck’s sake, and getting in with that publisher would be just…amazing. And also, it involves a story that’s almost an YA. The main characters are men in a relationship, but there is no sex. And not because they’re too young. For me, this is a challenge to convey that love in a mature adult way without involving fucking. It shouldn’t be a challenge, but there you go.
Lastly, I’ve sent Smoky Glimpses off to the M/M Romance Goodreads group. Hopefully I’ll see good things from it. I don’t think it’s big enough to bother with a cover, but I should probably get myself an authory GR page to like to before the release, yah?
