I sent the novella-length revised draft of The Demon Catcher off to Dreamspinner today -- now for the 6-8 week wait! That's quite all right, really, since I have this pesky little thesis that I need to finish in the meantime.

I also have a few new projects.

  • Firstly, as I believe I have mentioned here, I am working on a sequel to The Demon Catcher. Regardless of whether or not this story ends up professionally published, Euan and Leon are alive in my head now, and I can't stop writing them. I'm thankful for the internet, as it gives me the chance to share them with people, regardless.

  • Secondly, I'm working on what I think will be a short story, another m/m romance, about an Irish man living on an island as a hermit around the turn of the 19/20th centuries. He's purposefully shut himself off from a world that rejected him, but all that changes one day, when a dark-haired man washes up onto the beach of his tiny rocky island.

    I'm just working on this one very slowly, in dribs and drabs. When I started it, I really only had the image of the hermit finding a man washed up on his island, and nothing more. I started writing, not knowing whether or not I would actually end up finishing it, not knowing if a plot would develop. But now that I'm writing a plot is developing, and I think I have a good sense now of how the story is going to take shape.

  • Thirdly, I'm formulating ideas for a f/f cyberpunk romance novella, which I hope to submit to Samhain Press's cyberpunk anthology. I haven't actually started writing this one yet, but I have lots of ideas for it that still need a bit of time to stew in my brain, and I'm very excited about writing it.

Good luck with the submission! Very exciting. I still want to read it, but haven't gotten around to it. Your other ideas sound very interesting too!

Ah, that's probably what I'm remembering. If they pick it up, I'll buy it. :) Best of luck again!

Good luck... I'm slogging my way though a novel length science fiction/fantasy at the moment.

It's exhausting merely writing it... especially when you realize two-thirds of the way through you screwed up the setting. I'm writing a science fiction/fantasy gender-swap romance novel... and it's coming across as more of a generic contemporary.
