The second book is FINISHED. Very exciting. It’s out for reviews and edits now, but I’m pleased with it. See some draft chapters here. More to come. Let me know what you think!

11/12/15 I think the rewrites are finished. I’ll do a re-read tomorrow and then off to AbsoluteLovePublishing.com for the talented crew there.

Discussion board

I’ve been working on the second book. The simple rewrites I had hoped for have turned out to be much more extensive. I lapsed into my college professor mode, where I explain way too much, because I have to know how it could work before I write it. Then, once I’ve figured it out (by writing while connected to the devas of the book) I feel it’s VERY important and I should share. However, those explanations get long and they do not move the story forward. So, rewrites. 

I have something to ask your input on. You have to register for the site (lower right) to be able to post on the board. Please don’t promote other things – I’ll just take em down. The question is about romance. There are some beginning threads of romances. Do you think I should bring them forward or let them dangle in the background? I have 2 possibles – James and Tima  and Rory and Billy, or Billy and Lilly. I do, however, think it would be a good thing to have a normal gay relationship. What do you think about having more up front relationships in book 2? I’m not going to be writing sex scenes, but there will be exploration of how is this going to work?

Here’s the Link to the Discussion Board


The bots have been awful. Even with captcha on every page, I have to cull hundreds of names a week. I’m sure I’m culling some real people. The mailing list is MINE, but I use the AWeber service and they make sure folks double check that they are people. No prob with them, no good with registration… so. In case you are worried, I will never ever every sell, rent or loan your email to anyone. I will defend it with my life!!!

So, sign up for the mailing list.

What I learned about publishing

The most important thing you can do to help me is to Go to Amazon…to the book… and write nice things about it! Get your friends to do the same. More mentions on Amazon evidently is the new gold standard.

  1. My hints are write what you like and want to spend hours and hours looking at. I spent 3 years reworking Adima Rising until it was right.

    I use word press. I used to code my own, but wordpress is pretty easy and there are lots and lots of themes out there and lots of tutorials. Some of the themes cost a bit, but many are free. I think this site uses a free one, but I’m not sure. I use both.
