I'd Like to Thank the Academy…
Sorry, I couldn’t resist. But I would like to thank Chanticleer Reviews for naming my novel “The Spirit” as a finalist for best PNR of 2016. The final winners will be announced on April 1st (who does that?) and I’m keeping all my crossables crossed.
I know I said Harper’s Harlots Street Team is dead and so it is. Alas, my PA is a persistent little thing and with her prodding, a new reader group has been born. Feel free to join us for WIP excerpts, bad movie watch alongs and randomness about my life inside and outside of writing. If I’m going to make a fool of myself, I prefer to have an audience.
I’ve begun work on the two short stories I’m submitting to anthologies this year, both due on the same day (July 31) and both 20000 words. Eek. All this in the midst of a summer move to the coast and I’m running around waiting for my ass to catch up with the rest of me. “Hotel Paranormal” is light-hearted PNR/Erotica and my story for that work will feature Anu, a creature from a series I’ve been plotting for some time. Once I’ve reached my goals for The Tribe books, you’ll be hearing more from him. And Jericho. And Christopher. And Mutt. And the 345396 other voices/stories/worlds in my head.
The second story is of my own creation, for the 1st anthology being published by my own label, Satin & Stone. It’s for charity and I’m so proud of this lineup of authors and this theme and I wish I could share so badly. But alas, it will be a surprise best served closer to the release date. I can tell you that the anthology is called “Savage Hearts” and you’re going to love it.
I think that’s all for now from the holler. Don’t be afraid to drop me a line and say ‘hi’. I’ll have a fresh jar of shine waiting for you.
