Keeping myself accountable, yo. Time for a blog post, hey? (Sorry – This week I’ve been spending too many of my evenings with Final Fantasy Type-O. My life is too exciting for words).
So I finished some bits this January and thought I’d share what I’ve been up to.
At the beginning of the month, I wrote a short story about the twins called Relativity. If editing goes well, I hope to release it in March. I’ll add a coupon code for a free copy to the newsletter that month. It’s not an absolutely essential read in the grand scheme of things, but it has definite links to some future books. (And, yes, Phoenix is in it). Basically, Rosa’s back with a quest to find something dangerous before the rest of the paragons can overreact, and the twins get sucked into the drama.
After that, I dove straight into Bad Blood, a VBI story (which I finished today). I know Demon Dog came out forever ago, but I switched up the timeline, and other stories came first. It’s a novel, but it won’t be a long one. I have a lot of research to do to confirm that the stuff I wrote actually makes sense, so I’m nowhere near ready to announce a release date, but I’m tentatively looking at April if everything goes well. I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s the one where the succubi are accused of passing on a supernatural STD that’s killing humans, and Peter and Val are the ones tasked with figuring out what’s going on before the shit completely hits the fan. It was tough at first getting back into their heads after so long, but I got ‘er done!
Next on the agenda is much editing and the next VBI story, Secret Self. I am soooo ready for this one. After that’s done, I’ll either take a break from Ava’s world and work on something new or carry on to Magic Thief with a new POV. (Secret Self will make sense of the Magic Thief title). It all depends on how much time I end up with. I get a good four hours of peace in the mornings now with all five kids in school which is a great start.
Imma try to update what I’ve been up to every month on the blog because Facebook has a habit of making me hate the world, and I tend to give up and
ragequit log off before I post anything. (Mind-reading must be the worst superpower…)
