I’m back again! If I keep this up, I might end up blogging every day! I don’t think so though LOL
If you’ve followed my ramblings over the years, y’all should know by now that I associate nearly everything with music. People, places, events, etc. I do the same thing when I write. Usually I just let my playlist roll through songs while I write, but with the second book in the Caressed by Starlight serial, there’s one song I actually didn’t listen to much because it isn’t in my playlist. I would hear it in the car. A lot. As in nearly every time I would get in the car and it happened almost exclusively while I was writing Adding Tyn.
Each time I heard it, it made me think of Tyn-Hy the Cold. As with most books I write, I start out with an idea of what my characters are like and let them show me who they really are. That’s what happened with Adding Tyn. I thought I knew who this cyborg was. I didn’t know the half of it! He was a lot more complex than I intended, with an internal struggle that broke my heart for him and for the target of his desires, En’Daria.
So today I’m going to share the song that I would swear Three Days Grace wrote for him, it’s that perfect for the story.
How long has it been since I blogged? Sometime last year? Funny, because I remember telling myself at the end of 2014 that I would be a good blogger come 2015. The New Year started and…I didn’t blog. I didn’t even think about blogging. What did I have to blog about? *shrug*
Anyway, I’ve decided to pick up the torch once more. Maybe not as frequently as I used to, but at least so those of y’all who follow this blog don’t think I’ve fallen off the face of the earth. That cool? Cool.
So 2015 is looking to be a lot busier than 2014 was for me writing wise. I started the year off with the release of the first book in a four-part sci-fi erotic romance serial. Say that five times fast. Yes, a four-part serial. Me. I wrote that and I did it on purpose. It started in April 2014. Had this really whacked out dream about an adventure featuring a heroine in danger who gains the protection of one man. Then another. Then another. Then another. Get where I’m going with this? It’s a menage with four heroes and one heroine. I couldn’t write it one book. No way in hell. The edits alone would have bankrupted me in one go, so the serial was born. And I love it. I love making my readers wait a few weeks to find out what happens next. The second book comes out on March 24th with the third book scheduled for May 19th and the final book in July.
Is that all on my plate? Y’all must not know me. Of course not! I have a billion other story ideas floating around in my mind, but I have two I started working on which will release in the middle of books 2 and 3 of the sci-fi. Sinning To Win is the third book in my Southern Sin series and I have Pleasure In Crisis scheduled to come out either in June or July. After that? A plethora of stories I need to sort out, not to mention a new series whose characters have been invading my brain for weeks now.
What do I see for 2015? Lots of writing and hopefully, several book releases. I probably should have written this post back in January, but really. Would that be me? I procrastinate with the best of them, so we’ll just consider today’s post my New Year update and move forward from there.
And because I’ve been gone so long, what do y’all have planned for 2015? Writing? Reading? Learning origami? Inquiring minds want to know!
