My LHNB story is now called Smokey Glimpses and it’s ready to be sent for editing. I’m kinda excited, since it’s a freebie and all.
Riptide had a call for discovery stories with a college setting and I’ll be damned if a story didn’t burrow itself into my brain. Not a standard m/m story, though both MCs are male, but I’ve been very, very interested in seeing how a love story between two asexual men would work. There would be a lot of misunderstanding between them and dealing with others misunderstanding their relationship and I can’t wait to start!
I have a couple of goals for the year, another novel-sized contract being one of them, two more submission calls, and finishing Little Earthquakes (my freebie on FictionPress).
One big goal is something on the fan-side of my brain, a virtual book club using Google Plus. I wanted to talk and commensurate and gab with other M/M fans, and so I had this idea of using Hangout to do that and posting them on YouTube. I have some interested folk, so we’ll see how that works out.
Well, not really. I did write a bit last week. I did spend most of the weekend at a skeptical conference, sitting and listening and having dinner with some skpetical bloggers who I admire like whoa.
So, in apology, I got a lot done. I’m going to postpone work on All I Ever Wanted for a little while. I’m running out of steam with ideas and those ideas keep changing and as much as I love me some Patch (and I hope when you read This Little Whatever you’ll love him too), I need to get some of my post contract mojo back. So, hopefully this summer I’ll get back on it.
In the meantime, I’m sending all my Love Has No Boundaries ficlet to Goodreads and I’m still parting off Little Earthquakes in chapters on FictionPress, and I’ve been converting some of my old novels that I want to edit and work on and hopefully release from yWriter to Scrivener.
Also, I’ve now got a Google Plus page with a nefarious plan to be announced later…
Hooray and hooray, Little Earthquakes is all done, at least the first draft anyways. I’m thinking that I might make this one a freebie for FictionPress instead of try to shop it. It’s not that I’m confident, and boy oh boy do I want to try to do another tale with one of the MCs working at a sex toy shop or an advice columnist (without channeling too much Dan Savage). Since I made this one a BDSM romp, my other idea will have to be a sweet little romance. Yey.
Next blitz, we’re back to All I Ever Wanted.
After spending four days with out at home Internet (eek!), I was too terrified to access All I Ever Wanted because it’s in Dropbox, and the Cloud contines to confound me. Looks like it was just a screw up by a tech who was sent out to unhook someone else’s internet, so we got it fixed by Saturday evening.
While I was in deep mourning/galloping crazies from lack of Internet, I had an idea for a short(er) story I could work on/bang out, a little bit of BDSM fluff because after reading Country Mouse, I had a hankering for some serious silce of life to go with my “Yes Sir/good boy”. So yeah, the tentative title is Little Earthquakes and I hope to get the first draft done by next week so I can get back to All I Ever Wanted.
