So, I think it's safe to say I have a problem. I can't stop writing things. That's not a bad problem to have when you've decided you like writing stories, but I seem to be easily distracted.
Case in point, I've recently been absorbed in various states of three different stories. I've heard other people do this, but I'm usually a work on one story until it's published, then move on to something new kind of person. I think it'd be better if the three stories were all in a series, but these guys cover very different story plots.
I'm sure you all know that I had From Earth to Oblivion in Kindle Scout for the last month or so, something that sadly didn't turn into a publishing contract, but that was fine. As I waited to hear what would happen there, I started a contemporary romance of the hockey variety that I've completely fallen in love with. That story has finished, gone through my first edits and a critique partner's perusal.
In the week or so since I liked where it was going, I had a dream that was so vivid I had to start writing about it, and have gotten about a quarter way through what I believe that book will be. It's in the sci-fi world, but my main character pushed for it to be written in first person, present tense, so it's been a lot of fun going back and forth between these three books.
Thankfully, I did publish From Earth to Oblivion, so one book is off my plate.
I've posted Delay of Game on WriteOn to hopefully get some more feedback. If you're interested in giving it a read, but don't want to click through the WriteOn site, let me know and I'll send you a copy.
Here's the very short blurb on the story:
Jason Miller’s life has been tilted on its axis, and then kicked to the curb for good measure. To say things haven’t gone his way would be an understatement, but eventually something has to work out for him. That’s what he’s hoping when he gives a cute bartender his number. He isn’t looking for more than someone outside of his teammates to spend some time with, but Hope may give him a little more than he’s expecting.
I'll say upfront that it's steamy. Here's the cover I'm working on for it, which hopefully gives you that idea.
Well, that's my update. I'll hopefully be checking in again soon.
