Sunday Small Talk

I am very happy to say Nine Star Press gave me a contract for my Christmas Steampunk short story. It’s a thrill to see someone not only want my unusual story but also hoped there might be more in this universe.

This is a very nice feeling. I hope that the readers will love it as much.

But it’s more than just a short story sale. I’m making connections with another publisher and that is a good thing.

I need to, once I get Blood Red finally over and done with (hopefully soon), edit through those two novellas of mine and try them again.

I’ve also noodled a bit with These Haunted Hills so that’s good.

I’ve not accomplished all I wanted to this week but it’s been a good week regardless.

I think I missed a few of you last week (I’ll go back and look). I can’t believe I only have 2 weekends left before the semester starts. The good news is that new class I had to create from scratch is done except for me readying the second half of the semester student version of the notes (which will only take a day to do). I managed a Camp Nano win by a mere 500 words over. It was not a good month for writing and August will be worse. Ah well, I will make it through.

I wasn’t going to post more of my faerie short story with ManLoveRomance Press, Conned but a lot of you wanted to see that elevator kiss so here we go.

Roy swallowed down the rest of that sentence, acting on impulse, sealing his lips over Sion’s. He hadn’t been this rash since college. If Sion was startled, Roy couldn’t tell from the way he kissed. The smaller man’s tongue swept Roy’s mouth. Cradling Sion’s head, Roy could feel the fake pointed ears. They felt so warm and alive. How had Sion managed that bit of cosplay?
