It's been almost a month since Exodus was released and I wanted to share some lovely reviews I received.

Sandra from Hearts on Fire Reviews said:

"Interesting world, interesting characters, interesting plot. I will definitely be backtracking to read book 1, and I hope desperately that book 3 features Ty/Uriel!"

(I have good news for you Sandra, I'm working on the next book and yes, it's about Ty/Uriel:)

Smidgeson at Top 2 Bottom Reviews said:

"This is an excellent story that held me spellbound from start to finish. The story runs smoothly, the characters are well rounded and the world building detailed and captivating."

Thank you both for such kind words!

If you follow me on twitter, you've seen this already:) I've gotten the cover for Exodus!



It's awesome!

I'm hard at work on the second round of edits. Soon, everyone, soon!

I just finished up the first round of edits on what used to be called Exiles. That was always a working title, and when the book is published this spring, it will have the title of 'Exodus.'

I'm pretty excited about this book. Working on the edits reminded me how much I love this story. I adore the main characters, Hank and Ian, and I am really looking forward to sharing their journey with all of you. Plus, we get some glimpses of characters from Angel 1089 as well.

It's also gotten me motivated on working on the third book in the Heaven Corp series. Right now I've just started jotting notes, but I'm optimistic:)

It's Monday and I nearly forgot to post this week's Sesame Street video!

You know, I didn't like Elmo until I had a toddler. But I'm an old school Goo Goo Dolls fan, and I can't help loving this one, especially how the serious John Rzeznik is while the other guy is cracking himself up.

Going to try to make this a tradition. This is from Sesame Street's new season. It's rather emotionally packed for a skit aimed at preschoolers:

If you follow my twitter, you'll have seen this earlier, but I just signed a contract with Dreamspinner Press for my novel "Exiles" - the sequel to Angel 1089. I'm really excited about this book, because I worked so hard on it. I truly think it's one of the best things I've ever written...

I guess I'd better get to work on the third book, huh? :)

Having a toddler has led me to discover how simply wonderful Sesame Street is. Many of the videos work on several levels.

Anyway, so this video is sweet and I think it's an important message for a hectic Monday Morning:

Well, I'm kinda welcoming myself back. I'd decided at the beginning of summer to take a little break from writing. I spent the past few months reading anything I could get my hands on, which ended up including sci-fic, romance, literary fiction, and a lot of YA.

I think as a writer it's so important to read as much as possible. With my time so limited, I'd forgotten about that, and I think I suffered for it.

(If you want to see what I've been reading, please check out my goodreads page.)

So now that the school year has started back up again, I'm going to start writing again. I bought a new notebook (with an Avengers cover, of course) and I've broken a new pen out of its plastic house.

Time to write.

The Division has been released! You can find it over at musapublishing.com!

I'm really excited about this book. It's been a long time in the making. It took several rewrites, a lot of sweat and tears, and some hard work from my editors as well.

The Blurb:

Socket and Valor have been best friends—and part time superheroes—for years. When an invasion force threatens the Earth, they form a team of heroes to face the threat.

Closeted media darling Valor has no idea that Socket has been nursing a crush on him since their high school days. When a buffer, grittier version of Socket emerges from one of the alien portals, Valor discovers his own attraction, but his refusal to out himself gets in the way of his and Socket’s budding intimacy.

The alternate Socket has his own agenda, however. One that doesn't include attachments or a team of do-gooders getting in his way.

So much for my resolve to blog more frequently...

Anyway! In less than two weeks, The Division will be released from Musa Publishing! I'm excited about this book, and I hope you all enjoy it. It's about superheroes!

In other news - I'm almost done with the 2nd draft of what I've been tentatively calling "Exiles" which is the sequel to Angel 1089. I'm really happy with this draft, too. I hope to be able to submit it in the next month or so, depending on how busy things get.

And then I want to start on something new for the summer. I might put up a poll for my options. I have so many ideas, and little time to write them all...

Spring training starts today! Hard to believe when we're still expecting snow up here, but yep, down in sunny Florida it's baseball season!

I ended up pre-ordering Thrown by a Curve by Jaci Burton, because, of course it's about baseball. It has nothing to do with the half-naked man in a baseball uniform on the cover...

It did get me wondering, however, if anyone knew of any m/m romances involving baseball? Please point me in the right direction!

Can I still say Happy New Year or has that time passed? Hopefully 2013 will be a good year, full of lots of blog posts from me:)

I just signed a contract with Musa Publishing for my superhero novel, "The Division." I'm really quite excited about this! More details as they arrive.

I'm currently working on the sequel to Angel 1089. It's still in first draft phase, so it'll be a long time before you guys see this. But I did want to share this little snippet. It's Hank and Ian's first kiss!

My short story: "The Librarian and the Porn Star" was released today by Torquere Press.

Yay!:)

I'm posting a little snippet that takes place after the story. These characters are a whole lot of fun to write, and I hope you all like them as much as I do:)

Is it still appropriate to be wishing a Happy New Year? Since this is my first post of 2012, I'll say it anyway - a very happy new year to all of you!

I wanted to give a brief update. In May of last year I had a baby. He's adorable, but he also takes up a lot of time. I'm only now starting to get my writing back on track. The good news is that I have a plan and some things in the mix.

What I'm working on:

- a short story out on submission. I'll post if it gets accepted.
- a novel in the final stages. Just waiting for a beta to give me some feedback before subbing it
- in the planning stages for revising Disconnect, a novel which takes place in the same world as Angel 1089
- after Disconnect I'm planning on returning to the sequel to Angel 1089

There, that should keep me busy for the next year or so:) It's good to be back!
