Two Colds and A Sick Computer

I’m so happy to have my desktop back. I love my iPad, but boy did I miss my main computer while it was at the Apple hospital. It’s back now with a clean bill of health. Wish I could say the same. I came down with a cold in December, which fortunately didn’t last long. Last week I went home to visit my family (had a great time), but came home with another cold. Yay me! Anyway, I’m trying to kick it now. As colds go, it’s been mild, but it’s still annoying. Haven’t been able to concentrate for long on any of my writing projects. So I’ve kind of given up and turned to video games until it takes its leave.

Anyway, other than that, I’m doing fine. I’ve heard from several of you over the last couple of weeks. Hopefully I’ve written everyone back now. If you haven’t heard from me, in all likelihood my email is blocked from your server. The main question I’ve been getting is: When will Aidan’s Mate come out? I’d intended to release it in March, but I don’t think that’s going to happen unless my fingers catch fire over the keyboard. Right now, I’m anticipating an April release. This year I’m working to make my books a little longer (i.e. the short novel category). That means that it will take me longer to write them and there will not be as many releases as there has been in the last two years. That is the loss that comes with the gain.

I’ll be releasing a YA after that under a new name. It goes to the editor next month. My next adult project will in all likelihood be a contemporary romantic suspense. For some reason, my cold-filled head came up with a contemporary story idea that keeps bugging me. I need to write the follow up to Ghost Hunter after that. The sniffles also gave me more ideas for the YA’s I have planned and a new one. I think I’m going to be quite busy. Once I re-edit RED, SCARLET, and CRIMSON, I will be re-releasing them in ebook, paperback, and audiobook. I may even eventually get them translated, since they never had the chance the first time around. I’ll probably add a few shorts to go along with the Dead World series. Much depends on how much I change and how fast I can write.

I am going to try to get the Phantom Warriors and Atlanteans put into paperback, along with my Ghost Hunter novel. It’s my intention to have as many formats available as possible. It’s a slow process though, since I need to run them through another copyedit before I do. So please be patient with me. I am working as fast as I can. 🙂

  2. Tez, I’ll have more details once the book is edited and I’ve had a chance to launch the new website. 🙂

  3. It all seems wonderful… except of course for the colds… the scourge of mankind. 🙂

  4. Thanks Bernard! I’m in the process of kicking the cold’s ass right now, so things are definitely turning around. 😉
