Though I find myself hanging in there with the housework, even though I have loads of writing and editing to do everyday, I’d rather get my readers interested in how my writing life is going–what I’m learning–than talking about household organization, no matter how important that is.
So, here goes my umteenth incarnation as a blogger:
Right now, I’m hoping I hear something from the agents and editors I pitched to at RWA Nationals, that is, before I self-publish the two novels in my Ages of Invention Series.
Have all the covers for the two novels ready to go. I just need to start handing out advanced reader copies for review.
And I’m anxious to finish my WIP space opera, to get to working on a young adult science fiction novella.
I’ve never enjoyed history more than that in the novels of my critique partners, and because of my background in science, I’d like to learn as much as I can about the way people thought about science throughout history. That’s what led to the writing of my historical science fictions.
The Union of Opposites website (theunionofopposites.com) explores different kinds of consciousness that I use in my stories. The site is philosophical and built on my published experiments, but it helps me create a new world of thought for my future novels.
Alexa (www.alexa.com) says the Inkitt rank is about 90,000 in the US. What does that mean? It means they get lots of traffic. It means if you enter any of their contests, lots of people will see you, hear your author voice. (any rank under half a million is good for authors).
Go to their website and read posts from former and present contests.
And VOTE for my contribution: ROOMIES. It’s a short, offbeat and quirky story (my usual) about an invisible alien who rooms with three teenagers on Earth. And they don’t even know he exists until it’s too late. OR IS IT?
LOVE ME, BITE ME, the second book in the LEGENDS OF THE GOLDENS SERIES is in PRE-ORDER for 99 cents at Amazon. It’s the continuing story of Chastity (from A FAR FAR BETTER THING free on Kindle and Nook), the human/Golden hybrid that has the Golden community on edge. She’s fallen for her high school quarterback, who has decided to become officially changed into a vampire at San Diego’s Comic-Con. If she bonds with him before that, she might save his soul, but poor Chastity doesn’t even know how to kiss. So she finds a Zander of the future to practice bond on. Unfortunately practice Zander falls for her and has to compete with her real Zander of his past.
Chastity also appears in subsequent books in the series published by Soul Mate: FORBIDDEN PLAYGROUND and DANCING DRAGONS. She’s the wise Golden elder aunt to her nieces and nephews, the main characters in those books. And she appears prominently with Zander in DANCING DRAGONS.
It’s that time again for the California Dreamin’ Conference. The Los Angeles, East Valley, and San Diego Chapters of Romance Writers of America are sponsoring an intimate writer’s conference at the end of March in Brea, California.
The first three pages of my unpublished books–A PERFECT MATCH (tennis contemporary), FLY LIKE AN EAGLE (steampunk), and PLAYING DOCTOR (erotic romance)–are entered into the California Dreamin’s HOOKER CONTEST. Wish them luck.
And, coming soon, announcing a spiffy new promotion for my Legends of the Goldens Series where new adult coming-of-age, diversity, and vampire humor unite.
“A Far Far Better Thing,” prequel novella to the already published “Legends of the Goldens Series” (“Forbidden Playground” and “Dancing Dragons” by Soul Mate in both e-book and paperback formats).
The 88-page novella premiers FREE on Nook and 99 cents on Kindle.
