It’s National Novel Writing Month, and I’m participating, though I’m not pushing hard to get to the 50k total. I’m working on the first book in a planned four-book baseball-themed series, with a goal of finishing a draft by the end of the year. I had about 14k going into November, so as usual for me, it’s just a matter of getting to THE END!
I’m also working on re-releasing the rest of my reverted titles from Dreamspinner. I’ve decided to go with a one-a-month plan, and each one will go into Kindle Unlimited for 90 days before wide release. I’m not doing major edits, just light clean-up here and there, so there’s no need to re-read/re-purchase (though it’s appreciated, of course!). I already released Home Field Advantage in October and En Fuego last week, and my future release plans look like this (subject to change, of course):
December: Dreams of Winters Past (four holiday-themed short stories)
January: Teaching Ben
February: Accidental Fall
March: Model Student
April: A collection of short stories, title TBD
May: Unfortunate Son
June: Wayward Son
July: Nobody’s Son (with bonus “Sons and Brothers” short story)
August: Sand & Water

On this day 5 years ago, my first novel was released. Sand & Water told the story of widower John, who finds love again with Bryan. I still get warm fuzzy feelings about the story, and I’m still proud of it.
The novella I just finished writing, Heart & Soul, will be my 25th published story. Four novels, eight novellas, and thirteen short stories (not counting freebies and re-releases). It’ll come out a little more than six years after my first story, Model Student.
All of my stories so far have been M/M (or M/M/M), but with no. 26, I’m branching out into F/F. I also have an M/F in the works, and a series that will include M/M, M/F, and F/F (at least).
I’ve never been the biggest seller out there, or the one with the best reviews, or the biggest fanbase. But I enjoy being an author, and I like what I write. I hope readers do, too. And hope those who enjoy my writing will keep right on reading. 🙂
Currently writing: Graphite & Glitter (~4%)
