I made two more submissions this evening, both of them Kinsmen Vampire romance stories. "Kitten" has been sent to Silk's Vault and "Redemption" is in the hands of Ellora's Cave.

I also managed to break ground on a new Kinsmen story this evening. This one features Shade, who was in "Raging Passions." I am hoping this will develop into a full length novel, but we'll have to see what happens as the story develops.

I submitted Her Dangerous Promise to Cerridwen Press, which is the sister company to the E-book powerhouse Ellora's Cave.

I already have Secrets of the Dark out to Kensington.

I still have several items to get out in the wind, searching for a home. I am considering the various publisher's writer's guidelines before I send out something else. I hope to have a few more items submitted by the end of the weekend.

But tonight is devoted to writing. The story is on the tip of my fingers and I have to get at least a little bit of it out before I go nuts. *grinning*

Man! Is it good to be back!

Bring Me To Life

I have been going through a tough time in my personal life, and as a result I took some time off from writing. I went through a difficult divorce, some health problems that required surgery and worked to rebuild my life as a result of those challenges. I am still dealing with the lingering effects of these events, but after some time in hybernation, I am coming to life again as a writer.

I have sent out some submissions. I am reviewing the current guidelines of several publishers as I look for homes for several pieces sitting on my hard drive. And I am starting to reread old works-in-progress to see if I can resume writing them.

Along the lines of finding publishers, I have come to hear through the grapevine that my romance publisher Venus Press is running into some kind of difficulty. They have not responded to my submissions from last fall and, from the chit chat I've heard, I am not the only one getting a big dose of silence from them. So I am looking for a new home for my orphaned Kinsmen series.

As I figure out what I am doing and get back into the groove, I'll be posting my progress here once more.
