Progress and a title
I thought I’d post quickly, since it’s been a couple of weeks, to let you know what I’m up to.
My free story for the M/M Group’s Don’t Read in the Closet event coming this summer is now drafted, at about 65,000 words. (Yeah, I said I was staying short. I clearly lied. However it is 40K shorter than last year 🙂 ) The title will be Laser Visions and it’s a near-future paranormal story. Submission deadline is May 1st, so I’ll be editing hard the next couple of weeks.
Remember, all the Don’t Read in the Closet stories from all of the years are free on ARe and from the group. Individual authors might sell their own story somewhere, but if you see the anthologies for sale for money, let me know. (Someone recently tried to do this on Amazon. The books have been taken back down now.)
I’m polishing up the third Hidden Wolves book, to get ready to submit it soon. I don’t have a title for that yet, but I’m running through my list of “un-” words. It’s about two new guys – Brandt, a werewolf, and Harlan, the human he meets – but there’s some Aaron, Zach, and the rest of the pack in there too. It’s about 125,000 words, but I’m hoping to tighten it up a little in the polishing.
The Family We Make, about Sam and his brother Rick, has had one great beta read, and after May 1, that will be next on the plate for edits. Since it will be self published, hopefully the wait will be shorter. Real life has been kicking my butt this spring, and once again I’m slower than I’d hoped.
In the meantime, thanks to everyone who has been picking up the freebie Hunting Under Covers and giving reviews for my novella Changes Coming Down and the other fun stories in it. I was worried about stretching to try M/M/M, but the reaction has been pretty positive. Nice encouragement to maybe do a sequel or prequel someday.
If you are celebrating a holiday this week, I wish you a lovely time with family and friends. And now back to those darned wolves…
