Bits and pieces
I haven’t blogged in over a week so I thought I might post an update of the things I’ve been up to lately.
I just handed in the second edits on Home Work – Life Lessons book 3. After being wrong about the time it took to get Unexpected Demands released, I’m still not going to make predictions, but it’s moving along. I also got a look at the cover. I don’t have a jpeg of it yet, but it’s posted on the cover artist’s website: Winterheart Design I love the picture of Tony on this one.
This is the blurb:
Mac and Tony thought the hard part was over. They’re together openly as a couple, sharing a home and building a life with their two children. It’s what they dreamed of. But daughter Anna struggles with the changes, Ben is haunted by old secrets, Mac’s job in Homicide still demands too much of his time, and Tony is caught in the middle. It’s going to take everything these men can give to create a viable balance between home and work. Especially when the outside world seems determined to throw obstacles in their way.
My second LiAW story, Show Me Yours is through final edits and should release in July, although the exact date is not specified in advance – I’ll post here when it does, with a link.
The YA LGBT Books group on Goodreads, of which I am a moderator, is celebrating its one-year anniversary this week. I posted a little 6K story about two teen boys and a cat on the June story thread. One of our members has also compiled all the short fiction pieces by group members, including eight or nine of mine, in one thread here. We also have contests with book prizes and special prizes of a custom YA story written by me (and another by John Goode of the Foster High books.) So if you have an interest in YA LGBT stories, you might drop on by.
I have a 20K short fantasy M/M story, Gift of the Goddess, that will be in a Storm Moon Press anthology that is beginning edits. No publication date on that one yet. So plenty to keep me busy (even without the four novels in progress.)
Thanks to everyone reading and reviewing my work – I’ve had some truly lovely reviews lately and they do encourage me to write more.
