So Conned is now out, I’m happy to say (though it reminds me that I’m paying for QueerRomance Ink and I haven’t put up ANY of my stories, idiot that I am). Check it out here.
Blurb Detective Roy Connolly never expected to find real elves and murder at his local anime convention.
Seeking a bonding experience with his formerly estranged son, Sion, a crown prince of the elves, takes him to something they both enjoy: a human anime convention. They both like humans and all their geeky creations so Sion anticipates an enjoyable weekend. He never expected an enemy assassin, armed with only a description of Sion’s cosplay, to start murdering his way through the convention.
Detective Roy Connolly, a closet geek, heads to the same anime con without his friend, Amelia. He’s surprised to find one of the most handsome men he’s ever seen cosplaying in the same anime style as his own, and even more delighted that Sion can’t keep his hands off him. Throwing caution to the wind, Roy jumps into a whirlwind relationship only to find himself in the cross hairs of an assassin.

I did end up giving up on the Halloween short story, both of them really. With all the drama with the work issues, I didn’t write a thing and while I could conceivably finish it this week, (which I really do need to work on finishing lectures so that’s not really an option), I’m on vacation next week and wouldn’t have been able to edit it and that was before I learned my usual beta wouldn’t be available. I would like to finish them, maybe there’ll be a market next year.
So my camp nano, which I’m unlikely to finish even with the wimpy word count of 10K, is back to These Haunted HIlls which makes sense from a business stand point. It would be nice to finish a novel again.
Speaking of which I made considerable progress in revamping Blood Red.
That said, I’m struggling to write but that’s not new. I hate this, the depression that is creating the inability to concentrate.
