Ho Hum... hanging out in the doldrums...

So i got some new promo materials today, and i can say im not that happy about it. Eh. same old same old at this point. though i dont know why i bother with all the goodies, i wont be doing a contest for a very long time as it is. eh. Well see.

So we are supposed to start work on Bitter Kiss again today... something to take my mind off the monotony is exactly what i need. Maybe im just Bitter today. I did finish the cover for Silk and Steel and for Beyond Moonlight... so that puts a spark of a smile on my face. but not much of one.

and its a blustery day today as well. but at least its not freezing out. ugh. And im just over a lot of things right now... really... sometimes you shouldnt get out of bed in the morning...

Beyond the Vision of Dreams gets 4 angels!

So we got our review from FAR for Beyond. Lisa gave us 4 ANGELS!

Beyond the Visions of Dreams is an interesting story about a unique couple. Stella and Audra Price’s invention of the were-snakes, used in this story, gives an otherwise regular love story a magical and interesting edge. Beyond the Visions of Dreams not only has very hot sex scenes and emotions but also is well written and quite easy to read. I enjoyed following Remy and Chrissy as they build their relationship and lives together. I found Beyond the Visions of Dreams to be a wonderful short story that kept me entertained from beginning to end.

Sugar edits...

Done... well the first round. Im very happy with what our editor has suggested, and even more grateful she did her job and actually EDITED. some people out there just dont even bother.

And Bitter Kiss is going well too. We are in the high 20's with it and going strong. Its not going as fast as the other fallen book, but its still trucking and i am happy to say no pitfalls yet.

And i set up a new webby. Yep Stella finally learned how to do a website. While its very elementary, im hoping out subdomains work out better to help any fans we have of our series.. So fingers crossed. lol.

So its back to work on some Fallen, and im developing a new authors series or two for some of my publishers, so it should be a very good time once i get all the kinks worked out. Looking forward to seeing some In houses at a few of them. Not to mention the crazy series Skylar and I are working on... we just need one more author to make the list complete and then....

Mythology... what If...

Mythology is a subjective thing i think. I mean with this new series we are using snippets of tons of mythologies, Sumerian, Catholic, Jewish, Druidic, celtic... and its seems to work so far. Not to mention we have the real sci fi fantasy mythologies of the elder gods and the prophecies of Crowley and Nuit... this is truly eclectic. I mean its contemporary in setting, though its gott so much old world wrath of god shit in it im not sure if it could be considered sacrilege. Not that it would matter to me one way or another,its just fiction, but you have to wonder about those writers that work with the devine.

As one of those, i have to say i never thought it was possible. In the first book we tackle some tough themes and ideas about why the Fallen really fell, not just what was taught us in Sunday school. Now wrap your head around this...

So many stories deal with the balance. The balance between good and evil and light and dark. Fallen Angels maybe didnt fall because they were evil, maybe they had a difference of opinion with the High and Mighty. Maybe when they fell they were twisted slightly so that evil would come more natural to them and the other Angels would have a reason to snub them. Maybe they were just people who couldnt take being so above it all. At least thats how we write them. But what if Lucifer wasnt wrong, merely had a different way of looking at things. What if the stories are right, and hes been here since the beginning of the reign of the Pantheon, while those on High just have better PR? This is shit we are dealing with in this book series, and my sister being Catholic and myself raised Pagan, it forms a lot of questions to both of us.

This book, the second in the series has to deal with the Christianity pantheon and the fact that the darker forces in that pantheon have to save the world because those on High wont be sullied. What if that was true? i mean what if when it came down to it, we had the darker forces to thank for the nixing of armeggedon? could the world really deal with that? I mean this pantheon has been ruling the majority of the world (And in our books it means the three major religions... Christianity, Judaism and Islam)for longer then the rest (the greek pantheon, the celtic, the Norse.. ect...) and they have to do this themselves? What if you were on the wrong side? when the chips fell, what if?

Ok now i know im going to get some hate mail for this one... but... i guess so be it..

and the writing has begun... again...

Well we thought that we would hvae a plan. get through the edits for the books we have waiting for release, promo for the releases and start in November back on the fallen series.


Nope. we started back on the fallen yesterday and already have a little over 10k and i gotta say it packs a punch so far. New characters showing up, a solid storyline and some very surly conversation.... i gotta say im loving this.

So we are still trying to make heads or tails of what we are going to do with this series, but i have high hopes. Its rather unique, and the characters... hell we though the Eververse characters where chatty, these guys are down right insane when it comes to getting their stories out. Im so loving this....

Finished... well sort of..

Soft Edge is now "Finished". At 96,315 and still needing about 5-7k in bulking this is going to be our longest book ever to date. Im happy with what we have, but i know it can be better, which is why our awesome beta readers have been inlisted to help us figure it out. i would hate to get it to over kill you know?

Book two is already in the works, can you believe it? Sam, our perfect Anti-hero is back in this one, and i think hell be in all of them, or at least to book three. Im so excited about this... Still we dont know where to send it. Kensington is a possibility, as is Samhain(i know right?), EC and New Concepts. All of them will do the book and the series right i think.

honestly to have three novel series out will be a dream come true. Im dying right now, even getting this chance at all. Its such a wild time.

So friday is fun day in jersey, and saturday too. Lots of awesome authors will be at the signing on saturday so im looking forward to expanding my signed book collection. But Friday is going to be a lot of fun i think, so looking forward to it...

CURSIVE and Ideas..

So i went with Joe and Andy, the Cheat and his two little friends to see CURSIVE last night in NYC. Needless to say it was a wonderful and powerful show... And Ooh i got to see Men Women and Childern too... LOVE THEM.

Anyways we walked around the city a while and i got tired (DUH) but i alwso got a slew of ideas for new short stories... hehe... And damn if they werent powerful ideas.

So for those of you interested, our second snake book has been pushed back.. which sucks but since we havent gotten edits yet i suppose thats ok. Still my nerves are wracked. And Friday is the NJRWA hangout with Miss Bianca.. so that should be fun.. i need a night out away from the boys. Im looking forward to it. Ooh not to mention i got TONS of goodies for the signing day... All you awesome authors who send me stuff to fill the bags... thanks so much. they are full to brimming and i got extras of a lot of things. RWA wont know what hit them. LOL.

As for an update with Soft Edge... Well we are at 85k and stopped. We had a bad week for writing and this weekend wasnt much better. And audra is Still MIA... poo. Im just hoping we get it finished by this friday, at least ill feel accomplished.

See i have issues leaving work unfinished and going out and doing stuff. Call it my work ethic maybe, or my insanity, but if a story is not done i cant rest till it is. I cant hangout till it is. Like all night last night i was having visions of things for the SECOND fallen book.. it was insanity. Once the book is done i can let the stress level go down a couple notches i think. Lord knows i need it.

So its back to work and hopefully Audra will pop her ass on here soon and we can get down to Casis.
