In an effort to restart my dormant muse, I'm developing a completely new series titled Cerulean Daughters. My mom (after reading my notes) said it sounded like a cross between King Kong and A Handmaid's Tale. My husband said it had Gorean aspects. Honestly, it is a good bit darker than things I've done before,… Continue reading New fantasy series!
I know, I know. I'm a tad behind. In the midst of rewriting The Lost Son completely, I got some help with sorting out a few things. (Thanks, Mama!) Now there is a new book 1 in progress, and The Lost Son is officially book 2. Heretic will be book 1, and it will lay… Continue reading Socendor Update
Or should that say: reWORLDbuilding? I just broke 6k words on The Lost Son, and I've realized that I'm essentially writing what amounts to a new book entirely. Yes, the story is the same, but this time, I'm writing it the way I want to write it. I backed up the timeline to 10 years… Continue reading Rebuilding
I forgot how nerve-wracking it is to rewrite a book (not to mention an entire trilogy, but one book at a time). The first big step is done: renaming the race of people who are ostracized elf-human offspring. They were once called Lithings (no idea why I ever came up with that name), but now… Continue reading Socendor Rewrites
So you might have noticed a bit of change going on here. I'm in the process of updating this site: new logo, info, etc. I'm also starting the heavy rewrites for the Socendor books (originally published as Mychael Black), and they do take place within the world of Peravon. Trivia: Socendor is a continent --… Continue reading New look!
I know, that sounds (reads?) a bit ominous, but it's true. I got back from the Pet ER (elderly pup with a nasty arthritis flare-up) around 2:30-ish in the morning. While trying to, you know, sleep, the muse decided 2:50 AM was a great time to toss in a tiny bit of dialogue and scene… Continue reading It has begun…
I suppose the alternative title for this post could be 'Why now?' I originally wrote as part of the gay romance genre, but after so many years, I enjoyed it less and less. I lost the drive and love of it. And that scared me. After a while, I realized I just couldn't keep going… Continue reading Coming out of retirement
So I'm currently building a world: Peravon. I've made a page, but there's nothing on it yet. I just bought Scrivener and am working on the world and book one there. I will post world info as I can. So please check back often!
Bear with me and pardon the dust. I swore I was done writing, but the writing bug just won't leave. This time, though, I'm going down the fantasy path I always wanted to explore. I've tried over the years, but my inner critic was always... well... critical. Now, I'm just ignoring it. My brand of… Continue reading Adventure awaits…
