Sunday Report Card
Sunday, October 4th, 2009

It’s been a couple of weeks, so I should have tons more to report, but a trip and family obligations have interfered with my focus. Not something I generally allow to happen, but I decided to relax and go with the flow.

I had some good news this past week. I have a new editor at Ellora’s Cave, one I’ve wanted for a long, long time, and already I can tell she’s going to be “the one”. The two books that were languishing there are now contracted, and I have tentative release dates in November and December for Knight of My Dreams (yes, the next MIK book!) and Raw Silk (a contemporary m/m/f/f story).

More good news: The cover for my next cowboy ménage, coming November 24th from Samhain Publishing, is just about perfect!

The past couple of weeks, I’ve purchased books about Norse runes, which I’ve been pouring over for a scene in one of the books I’m working on. I also ordered two spy books, one on gadgets and the other featuring stories about real-life spies, for something I want to begin plotting. So, while I’ve barely written three pages, I have been thinking about what I want to write.

Today and the next couple of days, I’ll be working on some slight revisions of the two newly contracted EC books, then digging deep to get back into the writing groove. I’ll have the house to myself and no obligations pulling me away—so no excuses not to write!

Lastly, I know I have pictures to post. I’ll get to them shortly. Promise. Stay tuned, and I’ll also shares some sneak peeks at those upcoming releases!

    Well good for your for getting the editor you wanted with EC. Hopefully that will mean even more great things from you from there.

    Have Sex Will Travel was fantastic btw. I read it last night and am thinking about reading it again. Definitely hot. I’m also reading the other stories in the book too. Let’s just say its interesting.

    Brandy! Erotica isn’t always romantic! So yes, to the interesting! I added a little romantic flare to my own story, because I always like the wistful hope at the end that these two people will connect on a deeper level.

    I do like the wistful hope that they will be together somehow. The stories are definitely hot though and lucky for me I don’t need it to be romantic. I have a few other books like this one and I’m always intrigued.

    When I read them they feel more like personal fantasies than a story.
