Winter 2019 Updates

Thank you ever so much for thawing out your fingers to click on this blog post! Daaammnnn… what a winter. You would think that having all of these snow days would assist my writing, but I still haven’t managed to get much done!

I do have to give a serious shout-out to my writing group. I’ve been meeting with them once a month since last spring. Beth, Eleanor, and David — thank you so much for all of your valuable feedback on my recent short stories. If you can believe this, I am planning to revive Cultbreakers and have them help me craft it into something I can sell. I still have faith in that novel, and someday, I want it to find a home. If all else fails, I will self publish. Julia’s story needs to be told.

Unfortunately, my submissions to Unlocking the Magic and Release the Virgins were rejected. However, spoiler alert, I have a really good feeling about Writers of the Depths! I want to wait until things are totally official though before I share too much.

I finished and submitted the manuscript for the novel based on “Idylls of the King” titled Legendary. My editor, Lisa, and I are working together on revisions. I’m almost done with my first edit based on her feedback. Right now we are still scheduled for a late 2019 release! EEE! Learn more about my publisher here.

In more news from Running Wild Press, the anthology of short stories that contains “Idylls of the King” was included in a red carpet gift bag for nominees and presenters of the Golden Globes! Yes, seriously! Some of the celebs that received our book were Benedict Cumberbatch, Glenn Close, Tina Fey, Bradley Cooper, and the incomparable LADY GAGA. Here’s what the gift bag looked like:

And here’s a nice write-up from my local paper 🙂
