Hey, everyone! I'm not sure if this update is really overdue. Since all my updates are overdue, maybe that means technically this is right on time ;-)
I do know it's been awhile since I gave some information on what I've got going on. So, here's what's been happening in my little writing world. I've been hard at work on four manuscripts.
MODEL LOVE - This story will be my first Ellora's Cave release. This is a contemporary gay erotic romance story, about 47k words. The story features former model, Ian Eldridge, trying to overcome his guilt and grief over his twin brother's death, and trying to get his life back on track with the help of the beautiful Temaru Marceau. I've made it through stage 1 of edits on the story with my awesome editor at EC. Yay! There are still a couple more rounds left to go, but so far, everything is going very smooth on it. No release date yet, but that should be coming soon and when it does, I'll be posting it.
REFINED INSTINCTS, Instincts series Book 5 - I think this is one a few folks have been waiting on. It's in the hands of my fantastic editor at MLR Press and we should be starting edits on it soon. As of right now, we're aiming for a November release on it. The book is currently 62k in length. Timeline wise, this story falls after ADAPTING INSTINCTS, and it will be the story of Renart Bellerose and Troy Raines. Once I have more info to share on it, specific release date, cover, blurb, I will be sure to.
VAMPIRE PRINCE - This will be my second Ellora's Cave release. And yes, it's a gay erotic romance/paranormal/vampire story. And no, it's not connected in anyway to Instincts. The vampires in Vampire Prince are a little closer to traditional paranormal beings, where in Instincts the vampires are natural beings. This story is finished and in the hands of my EC editor. At the moment, it's complete at about 71k, but that word count could fluctuate a little bit once edits begin. The story follows Sebastian Beaumont, a young blood slave, and a three hundred-year-old vampire prince, Valentin Wyndham.
KNIGHT OF FIRE, Terra Series Book 2 - And rounding out the list of what I've been working on is Book 2 in the Terra series. I have been working on this book pretty much since I finished book 1! But real life and writing distractions have kept me from finishing it. Right now, my goal is to finish the first draft by mid-October and have it turned in to my MLR Press editor by the first week of November. Keep your fingers crossed for me that I'll be able to pull it off! The story is already over 50k with a lot more to go, and it is the story of Torran the Dragon Speaker and Sir Karrick Brenton.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what I've been up to! Hope all sounds good to you guys!
