News and Updates 26 August 2022

It’s been a few months since I last updated. Yeah, I know it’s been a while. Work picked up with the new job, and then with the way this country and the world has been spiraling into a dumpster, my mental health has not been in the best place. Things are starting to get better […]

Update: It’s Been a While

I haven’t been updating as frequently as I had hoped I would. The last week has been one of illness, first for my wife and now for me, and death. I’ve had two members of my family pass away. As a result, I haven’t done near what I wanted to promote my new sweet Sapphic […]

Romance Update: Release Date

It’s been one heck of a week, and it’s only Thursday. With the weekend coming up, I wanted to give what will be the final update on the novel formerly referred to as The Romance Novel Project. The novel is completed, and it will be released on 21 June. As a reminder, this is a […]

Romance Update: Drafted!

I know it’s been a week since I promised an update, but things have been moving fast for me. My new job started on Monday, and it’s leaving me with so much more physical and emotional energy at the end of the day. I haven’t had much to do, as no clients have been assigned […]

Romance Update: Trope Announcement

After a slow two weeks, progress on The Romance Novel Project has resumed. Progress is steady; although, it’s not as fast as I would like it to be. That said, this post serves to announce the primary romance trope that will underscore and direct the action. I’ve struggled with this defining trope’s identification, because the […]

Romance Update: Edit as I Go

Time for the weekend update on The Romance Novel Project. Since I missed my Thursday post due to work-induced exhaustion, I’m going to combine them in this one. The short and sweet of it is that I believe I’ve figured out how to fix my conundrum of fearing that I need to switch the roles […]

Rainy Day Writing

A serious thunderstorm is heading our way. As a result, school has gone virtual. I’ve given my students activities to complete, and I check email periodically. As the rain nears, the barometric pressure drops, and a gentle, cool calm fills the air. I know the storm will be a beast, as heavy rainfall and tornadoes […]

Romance Update: AAAARGH!

I do apologize for the melodramatic title, but that sums up my feelings at present. I’ve moved beyond the “Adhesion” beat, and we’re moving through the blossoming of romance that ends with the next pinch point/plot twist. That sounds great. I’m about 60% through the first draft. That also sounds great. So why am I […]

Romance Update: Meet Cute

As I’ve previously mentioned here and on social media, since I have found myself way ahead of schedule in drafting my main urban fantasy/paranormal thriller series, The Adventures of Sam Hain, I have decided to take a break from the darkness surrounding her future and write a fluffy, sweet paranormal romance. Yes, a vampire is […]
