Well it's been a long year.
I haven't been active on my blog at all, and part of that was that I wanted to take some time to decide where I wanted things to go. I asked Alexandria Corza to see if she could freshen up my website, and she's done a fantastic job. It's cleaner, simpler, and I love the banner she created for me.
I have some ideas on what I want to do with the blog, and it involves short, fun things I hope you all will like. More on that another time. Looking back, I see there is a picture of our beloved Sasha. He passed a few days after that picture was taken. We miss him. He was a good cat.
Life moves on, and today, there is a new member of our family, equally exasperated by my constant computer obsession.
New computer, too, come to think of it. It's been that kind of year. The release of a new series took up most of the year, and has now nearly wrapped up. The last book in Dance, Love, Live is actually a compilation of the three books in the series, along with three new shorts and will come out in print in a few months. The Dance books were so well received and I am very grateful. It thrills me that so many people enjoyed reading stories I had such a wonderful time telling.
Now, it's time for a new start for me writing-wise. I'm looking into things a bit lighter. A bit softer. Maybe slightly less angsty. But you all know me. the angst is relative :)
I'm beginning another series this fall, with characters who work, play and fall in love in a small, English-style pub that could be on any-street in Toronto. I've named the pub The Hen and Hog.
So stay tuned for Stories from the Hen and Hog. I'm looking forward to this adventure. I hope you all enjoy it with me. In the mean time, there will be a re-release of the first two Off Stage books in a print anthology. They are just getting out there again in anticipation of the third and final book in the series which will be out early-ish next year. I also have a re-release of an old, old story, Permanent Ink, which has been heavily re-edited, and, I deeply hope, improved.
I hope these tide you all over for the first H&H book!
My best and my thanks to all for hanging in there with me,
