Hey y’all! I’ve spent the better part of yesterday finishing up revisions, cleaning the manuscript, and formatting Unmasked for uploading and release this weekend. I will spend the better of today perfecting everything as best I can and finishing up the blurb writing, and beginning the upload process.
You will hopefully have Unmasked by Friday night from Amazon and over the weekend from Barnes and Noble, depending on how long they take.
Over the weekend I will be working on the third installment, titled Revealed, of this short story series. It’s going to be a writing all weekend kind of thing. Next week, NaNoWriMo starts and I will be joining in again this year. I will be plotting my story (stories) come Monday so when Tuesday gets here I can jump right into writing. I hope to finish at least one 50K book and one smaller story by the end of November.
Why they chose November to do NaNoWriMo, I have no idea considering there’s a major holiday at the end and that’s when I’m usually pulling my hair out. Of course, I know not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving, but it’s my own personal gripe so sue me…
I’ll keep you updated on when Unmasked is available and where over the weekend but otherwise I’ll be in the writing corner with coffee… lots and lots of coffee!
I spent a lot of time revising Masked, formatting it. I’ll be spending just as much time on Unmasked for it’s release next weekend. In the meantime, though, I am writing. I am finishing up Trouble in the Making and the 3rd story which will follow Unmasked. This will free up November for me to finish the 2nd race car book, Drive Shaft. It’s been my goal to get it finished by the time NASCAR season was done and well, both will be done by end of November. It is my NaNoWriMo project.
Also in book news, I have decided to self-publish the 3rd Blue Jeans and Hard Hats book. I have let Samhain know this so now I’m letting you, my readers know it. Basically, I wanted to be able to have a release date before late Summer 2012 and we simply couldn’t get it worked out that way. I am aiming for a February release for it. I hope y’all are looking forward to Blue’s story as much as I *finally* enjoyed writing it. It was a hard-fought book, but I am pleased with it.
For those who have purchased Masked, thank you. For those who haven’t, yet. Why not? It’s a really hot little number…grins. Remember, you can find it at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and Smashwords. I’ll be uploading both Masked and Unmasked to All Romance eBooks next week.
Have a great one y’all! I’m off for more coffee and to get back to writing…
Once upon a time, there was a little bird named Samantha.
Now, Samantha was considered a wonderful and dear friend to Lissa and she knew how much Lissa liked to read male/male erotic romance.
Samantha, such a delightful friend suggested to Lissa that she should consider writing stories in this genre she loves so much. One thing, dear readers that you must understand about Samantha is the simple fact that she writes stories in this genre as well as the male/male/female genre and so coming from such an esteemed and successful writer, Lissa took Samantha’s suggestion to heart.
Over the course of a couple of months, some serious thought went into this idea. Lissa had considered writing male/male before, had even written a very short male/male free read, but had primarily focused on male/female contemporary. But Samantha had put a bug in Lissa’s ear to write male/male, to try her hand at it and Lissa couldn’t stop thinking about it, couldn’t stop wanting to try and so she took her very short free read out of the storage closet, added a few words, polished it up, sent it off to a few friends to read, including Samantha (whom Lissa hasn’t heard back from yet…) Thoughts so far though on Lissa’s effort are good and positive.
Armed with a little confidence and a lot of nerves, Lissa is aiming to self-publish this little collection of male/male spanking stories, 5K each.
I even have a cover, created by the wonderful Valerie Tibbs. I am working on the second 5K story and will then move on to the third one. I’ll keep y’all informed as to a release for it.
A big thank you for the faith of author Samantha Kane. And a big thank you to those already self-published who are helping me along this new avenue: Melissa Schroeder, Eliza Gayle, Selena Blake, Bella Andre.
I am going to tell you through pictures and let you kind of see where my head is.
The images are in no particular order as it will be much more fun to let you try to match the pieces of the puzzles together all on your own. It’ll also make it more interesting to see if you can figure out how many things I’m working on today…
Y’all ready? Grins…
Now, any guesses as to the order of things and what images go together? Hehehe… One hint. The mask stands alone. It goes with no other images in this post.
Y’all have a great weekend!
See, for so long y’all didn’t think you’d ever get any new news out of me. Well, and you’re not. Yet. But soon… Maybe even by Friday I’ll have something more I can say. But if not, soon.
Until I can though, just be assured that I am writing and working my little, okay well, not so little, behind off for you, my darlin’ readers.
Oh, and Oh. My. God. I have found a store I think I am going to love as much as I love Trader Joe’s. I know, you’re shocked, right? I won’t be shopping there often because holy moly it’s expensive, but the organic foods, the natural foods (both of these would be why it’s so much more expensive), the fun stuff like you can make your own peanut butter right there in the store stuff… Lissa will be going there at least a couple times a month. You know, when I need something special like grains in bulk (whole wheat pastry flour) or specialty dairy (organic flavored half and half or REAL butter) or the natural sweetener (dried cane sugar) I’ve been searching all over town for that I can bake with that won’t send my husband’s blood sugar through the roof kind of special stuff…
The store is called Earth Fare. It’s like a smaller Whole Foods.
I do feel a contest coming on soon, too, y’all… I’m thinking about it and when I’ve got down what kind we’re going to do, I’ll let you in on it.
And there was something else, some other thing… Really important too… Ummm… Oh yeah, I remember now! It’s that time of year…
Florida State Seminoles Football. Game Day 9/3/2011, 3:30pm. Oh yeah! I’m gonna be fixing some game day munchies Saturday morning… probably to include some boiled peanuts!
What game day snacks do you like, need, crave, will kill to have?
