What a Roller Coaster of a Week!

                        Sing-a-long

      How to begin… 

     Those of you who follow me on Facebook may have noticed that I've had a bit of drama on there. Seems I've been the target of some cyber bullying. Every time I post a slightly suggestive photo I get flagged as posting something inappropriate. It has gotten so bad that I can’t even post in a private group! It really is ridiculous. Some people really do need to get a life. And to those who are following this person…this isn’t high school, so grow the fuck up. 

     It was such a major distraction that I lost focus and couldn't concentrate on getting my work done. Subsequently, I’m running a bit behind this week. Trying to catch up is never fun, but I’m plugging along. Almost there. 

     The big news is that My Hero is finally done and is being formatted as I write this.
Hopefully it will be up and ready for purchase in a few short hours. I hope everyone likes it. This story wore me out. The two main characters totally hijacked this story and wrote it the way they
wanted it. There were days I was so frustrated with them that I had to turn the computer off. They would not stay out of bed. Like so many twenty-something’s, they have a very high sex drive and it shows—boy, does it show. (My Hero is now available on All Romance Ebooks, it seems.)


                     My Hero


     Now before some people arch their eyebrow and think ‘Sex scenes should only help move the story along…’ well, I agree—and they do. I hate it when a sex scene appears out of nowhere. But these guys…well they just had a story to tell and they went with it. They are young. They aren't secure in their emotions, and one is sexually confused, but they seemed to have pulled it together. What I thought was going to be like a 20k story ended up being more like 60k. Truly, I thought I would have this story done three weeks ago. Nope, didn't happen. Oh well, it is still football season and there is a lot more to it than just football, but it I think it will be a nice read for those feeling the fall-like temperatures here. 


     As GayRomLit gets closer and closer, I become more and more anxious. Why? Well I’m going to be meeting a lot of people that I admire, and I’m sure I’m going to be a bit star struck. Then there is this whole thing about my first major publication with MLR being released right in the middle of it. As if that wasn't nerve wracking enough, the book itself is more than a little controversial in content. 

     P.O.W. is not going to be for everyone, but I wanted to highlight an issue that is largely ignored and needs to be addressed. Unlike the works that I currently have published, this is completely different. It is hard, gritty, in your face and full of angst. If I've done my job well, it is going to leave you a shaken, soggy, emotionally drained mess. However…it does have a very nice HEA, so just hold on for the ride and be assured that you’ll get there and hopefully be the better for it.

     One more thing...please support our folks in the military! They do a damn good job for not a lot of payoff.



    That's all I got for this week. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
