A New Year and New Beginnings

Hello everybody, welcome to my new home on the web. Fae created it for me. Isn’t it gorgeous? We’re moving off in different directions because we both have a number of exciting solo projects lined up. I’ll leave Fae to tell you what her projects are, but I’m so excited for her that I’m bouncing. Good stuff, I promise you.

As for me, I’m wrapping up the second draft for my ghost story Time in a Bottle. I should be getting it out to beta readers today. And then I’ll work on the blurb and synopsis, as soon as I have the blurb done I’ll post it. I really love Dean and Andrei’s story. When I first thought of it a little over two years ago on my way to South Carolina, I wondered how a story like that could ever be written and told myself that I should look into other projects. Well Dean wouldn’t let me leave it alone and almost a year later he made me sit down and write the first chapter while I was on vacation.

Then I set that aside to finish up the rough draft of All Bets Are Off. I was definitely excited to get back to Andrei and Dean when I was done. I hope to have it submitted sometime during the first couple months of 2012 and I promise to keep you update.

In the meanwhile, here is my Six Sentence Sunday offering from the first chapter of Time in a Bottle.

* * * * *

Cool cotton sheets caressed Dean’s skin as he shifted and he longed for Andrei’s hands to do the same. “Tell me you don’t have anywhere that you have to be in the next hour.”
“I have a pile of paperwork waiting for me on my desk.” Andrei smiled, his dark eyes lightning up with teasing. “She’s a cruel, demanding mistress.”
“Leaving me naked in bed for paperwork is a cardinal sin.”

In honor of the New Year and New Beginnings, I'll be giving away a couple of prizes. Just leave a comment here with your preferred prize and I'll be grabbing names on Tuesday.
1 signed print copy of All Bets Are Off
