Website and other information

My new website is where I will be from now on. I'll be posting updates, blogging, and have my book information all from there.

Come check out the blurb for my debut novella, Songbirds, on my website!

I have finally made my first submission. I finished the synopsis and everything was critiqued and edited. So, off Amateur Night went to the first round of publishers. Very exciting to send something off, but terrifying too.

Just wanted to share my submission happiness! :)

First Erotic Short Finished!

I polished that baby up, sent it to a beta, she read and got it back to me, and now I'm working on the synopsis and cover before I submit it. At 18K, it's really only suitable for e-publishers, but that's fine.

The synopsis is basically evil. Trying to know exactly what information a publisher will think is important without providing too much detail is a challenge. Keeping it to two pages is even more challenging. Every author will think that their story is the most important thing to mankind, so being forced to chop it down into two pages or less is cruel. haha

No, but really, when you know that the synopsis is what your story being read hangs on, it's very nerve-wracking. You could have a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and nobody would know if you have a bad synopsis. That's a lot of pressure, for sure!

Moving on... On November 9th, my first Excerpt Monday post will be up. Excerpt Monday (or EM as we like to call it) was started by two writers. It's a blog space where anyone who wants to can send in the link to their blog and post an excerpt of their work. Works in progress (WIPs), stuff that's finished, submitted material, already published work, whatever you want. The links are all put on one page, and the different authors can see the work being written, comment on each other's stuff, etc. It's great for networking, getting to know other authors (even if just online) and possibly even having someone in the industry see your work. I don't know of any stories like that coming from EM yet, but that doesn't mean it won't happen!

So, I might post a small excerpt of my finished short manuscript.

By the way, it's titled Amateur Night. Wondering why? Good...tune in on the 9th for more! :)

First Draft Finished

I finished the first draft of my erotic short, Amateur Night. It turned out to be around 16K words, more than I thought. I'll begin second round writing and editing during the week. My hope is to have it polished up enough in time for submitting in December.

I will probably post an excerpt soon, just to show what I've accomplished. I'm very proud to have finished it.

My next project will be working on the Samhain submissions call for Red Hot Fairy Tales. Taking an old fairy tale and transfixing it into an erotic short. 20-25K. I think I will be working on The Nightingale. Love the story, it's a beautiful tale.

First Blog

Welcome to my blog site. If you are reading this, then you must be interested in erotic romance, or me as an author.

I have been writing most of my life and I have been reading all my life.

I have been reading and writing erotic romances for about three years now. I have just decided recently to start on the path to becoming published. I hope to have my first short story submitted soon.

I'll be posting small clips of my work from time to time, my thoughts, reviews, etc. Hopefully I get the hang of this blog thing quickly!
