Now out: Ties That Bind

For Chel, Tomlin, and Mathias, life is simple but good. They share a home and a love, and despite a few conflicts of personality, are happy. Mathias runs a magic shop, where he makes magic items and potions for his customers, and Tom is his familiar, helping supply his magic. Chel, who’s not magical, works at a bookshop and makes sure dinner is on the table for his lovers.

When Mathias suddenly comes down with a mysterious illness, Chel and Tomlin seek out answers. As Mathias’s familiar, Tomlin can sense that nothing is wrong with the magical parts of him, but when a trip to the doctor’s indicates nothing is wrong with him physically either, they start to worry.

Then Mathias collapses, and the search to find the truth becomes urgent.

Nanowhomo?

So for April, I decided to take part (hypothetically) in Camp Nanowrimo, but instead of aiming for 50K, which just wasn’t going to happen in APRIL, I aimed to work on writerly stuff 30 minutes a day. So writing blog posts (good!), working on edits (if it happened!), and planning marketing stuff (er…) all were counted.

The problem became in the actual counting, because I started off strong and then just…sorta…lost count. Some days worked an hour, some days didn’t. Some days stared at the TV and pondered life.

So I haven’t gotten as much done as planned. (No one is surprised.) But I have worked on stuff!

My fantasy WIP is coming along slowly. I did some revision brainstorming for my light fantasy that’s in edits (which was supposed to be my focus this month. OOPS). I’m really contemplating character growth and pacing, so it has me a bit jammed. I got very much distracted by a submission call that I’m not going to finish in time, most likely.

And in less than a week, I’ll have Ties That Bind coming out! Which you can still preorder for 36% off!

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me posting a lot about this story for the LGBTRelease tag. These boys are magical, and I hope you’ll join them on their little journey!

PS. I hate WordPress’s new “block” formatting, and eventually it’s going to force me to “update” and my entire site is going to look like shit, because it doesn’t translate anything well >.<

Happy New Year…

Do I get extra points for doing this post before the end of January? I think I should…

I’ve been keeping myself busy so far this year with my writing goals (10K again), revising goals (Just do it *swoosh*), reading goals (book a month, that sounds familiar…), and health goals (lose the extra weight I put on over the past few years).

Of course, I’m a writer so you can assume I’m mostly playing mindless app games, watching TV, and talking on social media about how I should be writing…

But I did do revisions on The Miracle Man, which I’m currently looking for a beta reader for:

I’m looking for a beta reader, focusing on pacing/plot issues, for a light fantasy m/m romance (light on magic, heavy on time spent in wagon traveling). 53K, would love feedback by end of month.

Email me if you’re interested!

Premise: A young man with a “knack” for fixing things, becomes apprentice to a miracle man in the hopes of learning how to heal people.

I also finished writing a 50+k contemporary that might never see the light of day (who knows), brainstormed a new fantasy story (disgruntled coworkers to lovers is a thing, right?), started brainstorming a second in the same world as Magic Runs Deep, and I’m reading The Left Hand of Darkness which is good but not light.

So I’m keeping busy. I guess it keeps me out of trouble 😉

Solstice Thoughts

On this, the longest night of the year, I like to take a moment to remember those people who bring light into my life. This has been a difficult year for me, and I’ve probably been difficult to be around sometimes. As always, this isn’t a list that includes everyone–maybe because I’m forgetful, maybe because I’m oblivious. The point is that there are people on my list, and I’m sure you’re on someone’s list as an important point that brings light.

My crew who introduces me to more new anime every year, and who put up with me showing them my favorites as well. You fill my weekends and make me laugh. What more could I want?

My tabletop crews who really do fill every weekend. You guys give me a chance to escape myself, and even though I might go mad as we try to schedule and I try to control everything, I really do have a blast. I look forward to these adventures, which let me write without fear of failure (that’s what the dice are for).

My family is always supportive and there, often in small ways. They might drive me nuts sometimes, and I might get frustrated with them, but we’re family and we’re there for each other.

My new riding buddy. It’s so nice to have a fellow adult to talk horses with (who isn’t the riding instructor), who lives nearby. You’ve given me a hand when I need it, and hope I’ve done the same for you.

Michelle and Reesa, who I spent a glorious evening with, eating and laughing. I wish we could spend more time together like that! It was the best part of my vacation (and it was a pretty good vacation).

May all your days be as bright as the light you’ve brought to me.
