So, we’ve been back in Hong Kong for a full week now. I’ve almost beaten that wretched jet lag and (most importantly) I’ve started writing again. I was totally shocked to find out that my last real writing day was 22 May 2015! ;-O
Anyway, I’m back now. I’ve written the first draft of a short story for an upcoming Ladylit mini-anthology titled Al Fresco, and I’ve dusted off the one and a half chapters I’d already written for my next novel Seasons of Love. Writing again after such a long hiatus has been Fantastic (yes, capital F), so now that I feel myself getting back on track, I wanted to give you a summary of what I have planned for the rest of the year.
First up (oh, the amount of word play fun we’ve had with this title!) is the lesbian erotica anthology First: Sensual Lesbian Stories of New Beginnings, edited by Cheyenne Blue, in which I have a short story. This book will be out on 10 September. Next is the aforementioned Al Fresco: Five Outdoorsy Tales of Lesbian Lust mini-anthology in which I find myself in the excellent company of writing powerhouses Tamsin Flowers, Katya Harris, Annabeth Leong & Allison Wonderland.
Here’s a screenshot I took of my story the other day. Sorry for cutting it off there, it was all that fitted on the screen of my phone. 😉
Then, if all goes according to plan, late October/early November should see the publication of my 3rd novel Release The Stars (The Hollywood one of which I wrote the first draft in 11 days in May.) Meanwhile, I will have finished Seasons of Love and hopefully have that ready for publication just before Christmas, quickly followed by another themed mini-anthology with saucy Christmas stories.
Perhaps some of you are wondering where French Kissing: Season Three will fit into all of this… I absolutely plan to write the first draft before the end of the year, and I hope to have it ready for release in February 2016. I do apologise for the long wait, but, in this case, life really did get in the way. (I had initially planned to start writing Season 3 while in Paris this summer, but I’ve already told you how my summer did not go according to plan at all.) (By the way, I’m healing well and everything is looking good.)
These are my plans for the rest of the year. And no, I haven’t forgotten about that lesbian spy novel I want to write one day… 😉
