I’ll tell you what’s up with me. I just sent back my final edits for “Star Catcher,” my sci-fi erotic romance being pubbed with Liquid Silver Books. I’m super excited! Not sure what my publication date is yet, and I have a cover mock-up I’m waiting to be finalized before I flash it around.
I’ve also been working on creating a book trailer, which has been a fun (and time-consuming) experience. I could tell as I played background music and watched it over and over again last night that my husband wanted to say, “Just pick one, already!” But I’m a little bit of a perfectionist, and not one to settle until I’m absolutely sure there isn’t something better around the corner. That being said, I think I found the perfect music and I’m waiting to put my book cover in before finalizing that little project.
I’m rethinking my beginning to my rock star book, as well as the title. I may start things off with a big bang (every pun intended) to kick things up a notch with my spice weasel and cut out some telling later in the story. Also, that will give me the opportunity to write some eighteen-year-old twink sex, which could be fun.
Speaking of twink sex, I’m also working on a story for the Goodreads Love Has No Boundaries event. Here is my thread so you can check out my pic/prompt. That’s right, it’s a gymnast, in his skivvies, with a pompadour. Not to be confused with Mr. Green, in the Library, with the candlestick. I think I’m about halfway done with this story, as I’m targeting around 10 K words. Apparently, someone wrote about 80 K last year. I’m crazy, but I’m not that crazy. I also have other stuff on my plate.
My goal is to get my first rock MS out by the end of this month. I also saw a few short story calls I was salivating over, so I’ll see if I can get some shorts cranked out/buffed and sent.
And then I can finally get back to my second rock star book, “Double Takes.” At least I got my boys out of the shower a while back. Oh, and fun dribs and drabs of plot have been coming to me on my witch story, so I’m getting excited about hitting that baby again.
So there you have it. Looks like a plan. Now to get the hubs back to work and the hobbits off to school so I can actually get something done.

Awesome! I just posted about my Goodreads thread today too. Need to get that ‘thread hop’ off the ground. *OMG, car sex*

Lol! I’m beating plot bunnies off with a stick. (Oh, that doesn’t sound right, does it…) I want to go back to my scifi, or the sequel to the werewolves, but what’s girl to do? Too many contemporary boys in the way.
