Spring is here, well sort of, and I am working away on several new stories. Having this dream career has been as wonderful as I hoped.
*ROLL PLAY continues to sell 7 months after it's release.
* My first print story will appear in September 2008 in Ellora's Cave JEWELS OF THE NILE anthology, one of four annual anthologies they do. RETURN TO XANDER is the story of Mia Belmont and Xander Alessio and how Mia learns that been seen for who she is and taking risks for love is worth it.
* Ellora's Cave's editors have their own blog called REDLINES AND DEADLINES. They have been discussing strong opening lines of books and in their March 27th, Thursday 13 list, the opening of ROLL PLAY was listed as one of their "Starts That Sell". You can read it at: http://redlinesanddeadlines.blogspot.com/. I'm number 8, and thrilled to have made the list.
* My dark fiction story, PRAY, (written as R.E. Gofstein) will appear in the Dark Hart anthology TERRIBLE BEAUTY, which will be available early this fall. It is the story of a hollywood mom (think Lindsay Lohan's mom) who will do anything to protect her child - even bargain with a demon. It is a very different story for me, one that was challenging to write.
* I will be submitting a new story for consideration to EC at the end of next week. If they like it, you'll see DESTINY'S JEWEL available this September as part of their birthstone series. Kiera starts the book as a naked sushi platter and ends up the captive of a very sexy alien.
And that's the news from here. I hope you, too, are passionately pursuing your dreams.
