Coming this spring to a bookstore near you!
Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week. I wanted to announce that Hostility and Eclipse, my latest stories, are back up! They’re also available in more stores.
For Hostility you can find all the links right at the Hostility page right here.
For Eclipse you can find all the links right at the Eclipse page right here.
Thanks so much guys!
Hey all! Sometimes creative life takes new directions. This quick note is to announce the formation of Happy Catastrophe Productions with writing and producing partners Marie D. Jones and Brian Keith Ellis. Yay! Putting Producer on my resume isn’t something I imagined in my life, but there it is. We don’t have all of our official stuff up yet such as website, business cards and all of that jazz, but that will be in the works. We’ll develop projects for film and television. Right now we’re working on our own projects.
Early last year my creativity took a different direction. Marie optioned Blackout and Love From The Ashes for television and film and that started a new creative movement in my life. I started working on horror and less romance (although I’m not dropping romance all together). Over the years I’ve discovered a few creativity truths for me. Whenever I concentrate on what “feels” right for me to pursue in a writing direction, the more opportunities come my way. So I’m sticking with that formula!
As soon as I have more to announce on Happy Catastrophe Productions, I’ll be sure to let you all know.
Hey everyone! Long time no speak. 🙂 I hope your New Year is already fantastic.
The beginning of a new year brings the promise of dumping the old and starting the new. I rarely make resolutions. If I do, I don’t often write them down. This year I have a major goal. It isn’t writing a certain number of words a week or books a year. It’s continuing some of the things I’ve been working on for several years. At the end of the year, though, I did see some things crystal clear.
One. Make sure I stay on the course of positivity in my professional and personal life.
Two. Continue to write whatever blows my skirt up. Right now that is mostly horror. Sometimes it’ll be romance.
Three. Continue my exciting new ventures with two professionals and friends in the television and movie world, including becoming…drum roll…a producer at a brand new production company. Yep, you heard it here. More on this when I have bigger details to share.
In slightly different news, one of my publishers is going out of business and will be done by January 13. My story Comeuppance (featured in the Nightmares and Echoes III anthology) will be in limbo after that date until I fold it into my own horror anthology. Eclipse and Hostility will go back up on Amazon and other outlets probably by the end of the month. Many thanks to Jennifer Tover and Josh Hilden of Gorillas With Scissors Press for being honest, hard-working, and stand up people. Best of luck to them in all their future adventures.
Okay all! That’s it for today. Until next time, live, love and dream.
Hey everyone! I wanted to dash in here a moment to say have an amazing, amazing holiday. I’ll be back in the New Year if not next week.
Hey all! I thought I’d do a drive by posting and share one simple tidbit I’m working on with the fantabulous (yes I spelled it that way) Marie D. Jones (Producer/Writer at Where’s Lucy? Productions) and Producer/Writer Brian Keith Ellis. Can’t tell you how exiting this is! This is a preliminary poster and things change. So stay tuned for updates!
Hello everyone. My writing world runneth over. Just a few little updates! To find details on the books mentioned, stop by here.
NIGHTMARES & ECHOES III CHARITY ANTHOLOGY #2 BEST SELLER!
Gorillas With Scissors Press introduces a yearly horror anthology with 50% of the proceeds going toward a charity every year. This year the contributions go to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. I’m happy to say that I’m included in this year’s anthology with my spooky story Comeuppance. Just recently I learned the anthology has zipped to #2 on the Horror Anthology bestseller list at Amazon. How amazing is that?
MOVIES/TV SERIES NEWS
In other quick catch up news, my story Blackout is still in development for television, and recently I started working on another TV series with producer/writer Marie D. Jones (Where’s Lucy Productions) and producer/writer Brian Keith Ellis. Exciting writing times. When I can reveal more on these projects I’ll be sure to let you know.
ZOMBIES AND HORROR
I finished writing my zombie series of books and I’m slowly working through revisions in between participating in NANOWRIMO in November. Although I won’t finish NANOWRIMO this year, I’m perfectly okay with that. I still achieved a lot of writing. I think December might be a good time to take a chill pill and relax a little before the new year starts.
Until next time, live, love and dream.
My Love Under Fire Trilogy is rebooted today! This trilogy was out a few years ago with a publisher, and I rebooted it after a few tweaks and new covers. Let me introduce you to the three couples who are interconnected in all three stories. You can find all the links for where you can get the trilogy here.
Love Under Fire Trilogy
Men bound to serve, to protect, and to love…
Where do you yearn to be in the face of danger? In the arms of men like these…
When Matt, Jake and Rick Frasier come home for Thanksgiving and a wedding, they don’t expect that violence will throw them together with three extraordinary women.
Librarian Melanie Falconer knows too well the horrors of war—she lost her father to severe issues with PTSD. Military men, as far as she’s concerned, are off the marriage menu. As maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding, she makes a mall run and lands straight into the arms of seriously hot marine Matt Frasier, the best man. Matt has seen too much violence during his time in war, and his attraction to Melanie promises to soothe his soul and set his body on fire. Gunfire erupts, the game is on, and Melanie and Matt fight for their lives and the sudden heat exploding between them.
Kathleen McSwain truly understood the saying of always the bridesmaid never the bride. Was she nuts the day she agreed to be a bridesmaid for the eighth time? Especially when it means she’ll be in proximity to rugged Army Major Jake Frasier. Jake is too handsome, too disturbing, too stirring for her blood. Being out of control is the last thing she wants, and Jake temps her to be the wild woman she was before. Yet when the stakes are high, there’s only one man she’ll trust when danger rips apart her world.
As a therapist Lena Williams has worked with damaged vets and never wants a relationship with one. So her lust at first sight with sexy Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Rick Frasier is off the menu. Rick has never shied from danger or risk taking, but the overwhelming attraction he feels for Lena sends him into a tailspin. As they battle their feelings and escape a gunman intent on mayhem, they’ll find there’s a firestorm of desire inside them as furious and intense as any threat.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Welcome to a new month! Glad to have you here and hope you’re having a fantastic day. My latest horror effort is a story I called Hostility. How did this story come about and what inspired me to write it? One day I was reading a book on horror writing and they discussed an anthology written in the 1990’s based solely on people’s greatest fears. The editor of the anthology had asked each author to tap into those overwhelming fears to create their stories. I thought this was a great idea.
When I pondered my own fears, I dove deep into psychology. When you think of it, that is difficult for most of us to do. We don’t want to examine fear too closely. I realized, though, that one of my lifelong apprehensions is losing control of my anger. And with that I was off to the races and created Hostility.
Hostility releases on November 11, but you can preorder it now right here. Here’s the blurb to get you started:
Myra Harrington is tired. And sick. And sick and tired. Once a therapist, now a life coach, Myra hasn’t accomplished the goals she set out for herself two years ago when she left the insanity of psychology for coaching. One day she rips off the bandage and lets her hostility roar. Isolated in her office by a severe storm, she discovers a new side of herself. What her anger creates will tear apart her world and she may never get it back again.
You can still get the amazing Nightmares & Echoes III charity anthology and Eclipse, my erotic paranormal romance. Click here to get the details!
