So, I’ve dropped off the face of the planet these past few weeks, but it’s not so bad. I’m working in London now, so time to play about on the interweb and update all my sites and blogs has been minimal. The lack of laptop has now been resolved as I gave up on Dell and bought myself a teeny tiny little Samsung. I need a spare battery for it, but that’s only Â£60.
In Heat is no longer number 1 in Erotica at Fictionwise, but it had a glorious run of 3 weeks at that position! It’s number 3 now, which is the slip I’d been expecting from week 2 of its run. This run of success and bestseller-dom is far more than I’d expected for the story since it’s more of a hot romance than erotica.
Still, there’s a sequel in the works! But I have no illusion that it’ll do as well as the first.
I am fighting one of those “why bother?” moments today. So writing down all the great stories I’ve got coming up for release and in the works might help me wade through this horrible feeling. Sometimes I feel as though I’m fighting some impenetrable barrier that has immeasurable power and I can’t break through. It’s then that the “why bother?” feeling descends upon me and I can see nothing in my future but failure and pointlessness. (like why bother writing a blog that no one reads?)
Never mind. Plough on through and find some faith in myself. That’s the remedy.
So what’s coming soon?
Well, first up are the re-releases of my first three novels – Killing Game (romantic suspense), The Merciless (historical pirate romance) and The Merciless: Vengeance (historical pirate romance – sequel).
Then I’ve got to do some work, lol. The Night is due for release in mid-October. It’s a novella length introduction to my new series, a dark fantasy one set on a different world. That’s my Halloween release this year.
At the end of November, Cabin Fever, my long-haul romantic suspense novel will be released. I’m very happy about this and can’t wait to see it finally spread its wings and go out into the big wide world.
I’ve got the sequel to In Heat planned for release at the start of December. It’s going to be hotter than, but just as suspenseful, as the first book. I’m even considering writing a third book for the man who appears alongside Kim and Erik in this story.
That’s all my releases for 2007. In 2008 I’ll be writing mostly stories for Vampires Realm and my new series, but there’ll be stand alone stories in there too, one of which is my current beloved, Deadly Force. I’ve got that pencilled in for a March release if possible.
Well, I can’t really write much about 2008 without giving everything away but I can confirm that Blood Moon and Midnight will be making an outing for Vampires Realm.
