Well, I'm on school vacation this week so I have a moment to sit back and take stock. Also, I'm recovering from a nasty cold that turned into bronchitis, so all those outside things I need to do can just keep waiting a little longer. And I'm without a car at the moment. My husband's van is in the shop for some bodywork this week. Vermont winters EAT cars, and the van is many years old and has something like 200,000 miles, so he's driving my new vehicle. (I drive a four wheel drive SUV with winter tires which aren't coming off until June, thank you very much.) I have to say that my husband is very much like Josh, the way they're both attached to their old, clunky vans. Josh needs his to carry his paintings in; my husband needs his to carry his drums and PA system to music gigs. But beyond that, they just kind of form bonds with clunky old vehicles. I've always thought that was a little out of character for Josh, who adores new clothes and pretty things, but when has Josh ever done what I've expected?)
(Wait, did I just say that my husband is like Josh? He would totally FLIP. But he rarely reads my blog, so it's okay. Don't get me wrong, my husband likes Josh all right, but... So does that make me like Varian? Snort. Okay, we both worry a thing to death, and I have kept my calm in some damn scary situations like car accidents and breaking up a fight between two teenage boys at school once, and I am an educator and I love history and dragons. Hmm.)
Anyway, looking forward. I've got two releases coming up, both in May. The first one is a novella from Less Than Three Press called Haunted Halls, on May 7th. It's a free standing college ghost story with twist. Then on May 28, the next in the Notice Series comes out from Torquere Press -- The Dragon and the Palm Tree. It's about what happens when Varian and Justin decide to face their fear of flying in airplanes, and Josh decides to present as female on their trip to Florida.
I feel like I've just barely gotten Another Healing all released, and here I go again! Stay tuned for more information. And I've made book trailers for both of them -- I'll be posting links when it gets closer.
Beyond that, I've got a novella called Natural Instincts submitted and I'm waiting to hear back.
Right now I'm working on my 2014 Charity Sip for Torquere, and I've started a new novel! I'm really excited about this one. It's a fresh take on an old, old story idea I've fooled around with many times over the years, and I think I've finally got it right this time. It's called Jai.
And thanks so much to everyone who is taking the time to write reviews and friending me on Facebook and following me on Twitter. You folks are awesome, and I'm always willing to answer questions or chat any time. And I'm glad to forward any comments to Josh. As he puts it, it's all about his fans, of course.
