Well, not really. I’ve been around, just in a different environment.
Let me say Happy New Year! I hope you had a fabulous and great one. I had a good one. We went for Japanese noodles and celebrated with 50,000 of L.A.’s finest. That was a lot of fun.
So what I have been up to these past couple of months? Well, writing. I took the advice of many and went on a break. A few of my close friends told me I was overworked and after confirming with several others, they were right. I think new motherhood in conjunction of putting out books really did a number on me. So I took a break.
And went back to basics.
I got my start on fanfiction and still have an account there. So I posted a brand-new story over there that was originally intended to be next paid release. I needed to go back to where it all started and see if I still had that magic and spark. And something wonderful happened – I fell back in love with writing.
Of course, some changes had to be made first.
I probably won’t post future snippets of stories on the Facebook public page but direct people to the tumblr blog if they are interested in reading a new story. In terms of this blog, it’ll still be around, when I want to post something pretty naughty.
Some of you are probably wondering…’Um, yeah…that’s nice and all but what about [insert X story]?’
Well, I’m a woman of my word.
To those who I promised free before-it’s-released copies of S&M IV or Love and War, I’m holding to that. Expect your books within the next few months. I still have your e-mails so I know which readers they are. It’s a very small handful, like at the very most 10, and these are people I spoke with a while back.
In other news, I finished a long-awaited screenplay and I’m currently shopping it around, entering it in different competitions. Very exciting! I never saw myself as just being an author, but more of a writer. I didn’t want to be just limited to a niche, but reach a broader audience. And it’s working. 🙂 I’ve received some awesome feedback on the screenplay and have a great group of people supporting me. The ‘break’ I took, really wasn’t a break in the tradition sense since I was still working in a different medium.
Most importantly, I’m the happiest I’ve been in years.
That’s pretty much it in a nutshell. I hope everyone is doing wonderful.
And there you have it,
