Last month I picked up Writing From the Middle based on Andrea DePasture’s recommendation. It really is changing the way I write! I should mention this is the second craft book I’ve purchased from James Scott Bell, Plot and Structure was the first and well worth reading if you haven’t already done so.

Meanwhile back in the real world…

July 22, 2014 | Real life

writer at work a

When I first started writing for publication I spent every spare hour tapping away at the keyboard blissfully unaware there would ever be anything else involved. All those boring bits, edits, covers, formatting,and marketing were handled by expert specialists. This was actually fairly true for my early works. Cover art with no relationship to the story, glaring text errors–all mine :blush: and formatting that jarred the reader’s tender eyes left me weeping in frustration, desperate for a chance to improve the publication process.

Now I spend hours designing covers, revising, editing, proofing, formatting, and marketing those same books. To my amazement, none of these tasks are a bit boring. Every pass with a manuscript improves the story and that’s still my driving force–a passion to give readers the best story I possibly can.

Sneak Peek at Joon’s Tempation

July 15, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

Joon 500x750
At the entrance a tall, lean, lock-jawed attendant scowled from his booth. “Identification.” Filthy Earth whore.

Joon controlled an urge to cringe at his crude thoughts. The same man had directed Joon’s guards several times each week the government was in session for more than a year. His thoughts left no doubt he recognized her. She produced her ambassador badge for his scan.

Dirty slut. He pretended to consult a display. “There are no slots available. Try the visitor area.”

Five open slips lay in her line of sight. She considered changing his mind, but rejected the tempting idea. She still had plenty of time to rendezvous with her guards. The heady opportunity for few more minutes alone softened the gatekeeper’s blatant disrespect. She checked behind her and reversed away from the entrance.

A sleek, iridescent purple skimmer swooped in to fill the space she had vacated. She recognized Cornish, a newly appointed representative from the south quadrant. The attendant waved the junior councilman ahead without so much as a glance at his shiny new identification badge.

Temper raced through her veins, heating her cheeks, she popped the canopy, hoping for the relief of cool breeze. Determined not to let these Goddess blighted males provoke her, she breathed through her unseemly anger as she entered the underground public docks.

Distracted by the inner turmoil she missed the group of young men in short pants and loose shirts moving closer until they’d surrounded her tethered skimmer. The dimly lit docking area was deserted. They had taken positions on either side of the slim vessel blocking her exit.

She was exposed and trapped, but hardly helpless.

The tallest snatched her ignition fob then folded his arms emphasizing budding biceps and leered. She’s an earth slut, has to be. What’s she doing here?

A gangly youth across from him with red hair and pale blue eyes squinted at her chest. She’s so scrawny, but I bet her sex is soft.

Another boy, a blond, with a fish tattoo on his forearm and too many square teeth, slammed her side hatch shut when she tried to release it. “Not so fast, bitch.” She’s going to feel way better than my fist. I want to strip her stupid clothes and pound into her until she screams.

The fourth, a stocky child with straight black hair, stared at her, palming his erect shaft. She wants my cock. Don’t worry baby I’m going to fuck every hole you’ve got.

Shock from their graphic thoughts slowed her reaction time. A glance at the bulge tenting the blond’s baggy pants snapped her back to reality. These boys intend to rape and quite possibly kill me.

Joon’s Temptation

July 1, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

coming soon

I’ve been working on Joon’s adventure off and on since last year. It’s the off and on again part that’s the problem. :blush: The upside is there should be a period of fairly close releases down the road.

So far I’ve added fifteen thousand new words to the original text and replaced easily that many. :blink: I’m finally closing in on the last chapters. The new and improved Joon’s Temptation should be released later this month. I’m excited to almost have one of my favorite titles available again. Here’s the short version of the story:

Joon is banished from New Eden for practicing witchcraft. Two fierce warriors are assigned to ensure she returns to Earth. Before they make the first jump to sub-space they’re captured by Baldoreans and taken to enormous space station, where the enemy is gearing up for a devastating surprise attack.

The trio’s first objective is to escape and warn their home planet. The only hope for accomplishing this impossible task is to combine their talents. As they work together the three-way attraction strengthens. Courage, sacrifice, and a new mating bond won’t erase the charges against Joon. Their love is still forbidden.

I started writing Joon’s Temptation in 2008. The original story published in June 2009. Since then I’ve learned a few things about writing, which benefits the all new version coming soon, but also makes the revision more a total rewrite. The characters and basic plot remain the same, just the prose is being replaced. :lol:

For all you paper and ink fans, Warriors’ Woman and Warriors’ Wife are scheduled to release in print January 15, 2015. My guess is they’ll be combined in a single author anthology.

I need to get back to work on the next story in the series. :blush:
