Renly

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve ended up taking a bit of a break from writing and drawing.  For quite some time I have wanted to get back into reading.  When I upgraded my Kindle Fire to a Kindle Fire HD 8.9” I made myself a promise I was going to do some more reading.  This has been a promise I have kept.  I have been reading through my pile of books, most of which I had been planning on reading for over a year with a few other’s here and there I have found interesting.
What I love best about my new Kindle is it does something I have wished for as long as I can remember.  There are times when I am reading a book and want to listen to it while driving in my car.  Now I can had the Kindle read it to me when I am unable to read myself.  It is an option that I am glad I have.  I used to get the audio book of something I was reading, but it would take me forever to find where I was at either listening or reading and it would be annoying.  Or I would start listening to a book and read a different one, and then I would mix up the storylines.
The new book is still in the editing process.  When I get it back, I plan to add in some stuff that I meant to include when I was writing, along with going through to see what changes have been made.  As far as the cover art, I have an idea in my head what I want it to be like, but I have been lacking the motivation to work on it.  Drawing is something that comes and goes with me.  Usually I get the cover rolling while the editing is being done.  This book, has been so different, being it is still without a title and perhaps will be done being edited by the time I start on the cover.
I hurt my foot this past weekend, so much to the puppy and my disappointment we have not been walking.  I am looking forward to not having to keep my foot elevated and be able to get out and walk with her.   She has been so good, sticking by me as I have been pretty much stuck in bed over the last couple of days.   She is such a smart, sweet little girl.  I have been glad that the black interior, mainly the leather seats have not been damaged being I have been taking her just about everywhere I go.
Then there is my new addiction, something I am not sure if I should be putting out there just yet.  My brother introduced me to Game of Thrones.  I watched the first season twice while being stuck in bed.  He brought me the second season last night, which I stayed up until I could not keep my eyes open watching.  I keep getting told I need to read the books, to which I plan on doing, but not anytime soon.  I need to taper off my reading and get back to being an author!
Speaking of which I have been outlining my new work in progress, a book I had an idea a couple years ago and never ended up writing.   For years, I have been adding ideas to the file with it, planning on writing the book someday.  When I told my editor about it, she practically begged me to write it next.  I told her that I would look through my notes and see.  It looks like I will finally be writing this book.

Blurb: In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the twenty first century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene. This gene has the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians. A new society is born.

In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of the government that still rules society. Twins Aiya and Aiyan are preparing to meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems.

Love is Love.. it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions and boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi that he is matched with and eventually marries. But when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two hundred years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites.

*WARNING* Opposites is a majorly M/M New Adult novel that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, lesbian and straight couples.

The Writing Is Done, Now What?


I finished writing TED last week.  This is the first time I have completely written a novel without it getting a title before completion.  The title itself has been a thorn in my side since I started writing.  I decided to not let it detour me from writing and like my other books, a title would come to me.  When it did not happen by the time I reached the halfway point of the book, I ended up taking a break from writing.  Then I attempted to start back up on writing again, not having a title was bugging me so much that I was not able to write.  A few months later the story that was in my head and I had an overwhelming urge to write, kept on sticking in my head.

The novel has come out great!  I am quite happy with how the ideas went from my head onto the page.  I am looking forward to the publication of a book that is not part of a series.  Don’t get me wrong, I adore my series.  The characters are a part of me and ones that I look forward to writing with again.  Right now I want to publish a few books with other characters.  Currently all my writing ideas all have characters in Chandler.

Up until today, only a few people even know that I finished TED.  Typically I would be elated, yet I am feeling glad that I completed it and overwhelmed with the idea of drawing an image for the cover.  I have another idea for a book, something I started a few years back and I have meant to get back to writing and finish.  If my editor has her way, this will be my next book.  Over the next few days I am going to take a look at the story and see if it inspires (more than just thinking about it).

My walks with my puppy have been good in many ways.  It has given me time to get the puppy and myself much needed exercise.  We also get to spend time together – she is great company and quite a character.  I also get time to think and work out ideas in my head.  Of course I was supposed to be thinking about cover artwork the other night and found myself thinking about what I wanted to draw for a cover of a book I have not written yet.  Such is how my mind works I suppose.  The puppy likes the water, so she is more than willing to brave the constant downpour of rain Washington has been seeing over the last couple of days.  Our current plan is to keep on getting out walking regardless the weather.  I have to admit it is doing wonders for my creativity!
