I’m taking a break from editing to reflect on 2020 and think about what I want to accomplish writing-wise in 2021, so I thought I’d share a little of it!
2020 wasn’t an easy year, but I got more done than I thought! I re-released my M/M Romance with a side of kink with a sexy new cover and a new title, and a boxset of the Buchanan House series with an amazing set of covers by the talented LC Chase.
The boxset includes a bonus epilogue, which was also the first new story I wrote and published since my car accident in 2017. It was so much fun to visit the Buchanan House family again. I love those guys!
I had a few ideas for paranormals and Dark Romances, so I indulged my inner horror-fan and wrote those. Upwardly Mobile is a story in The Devil’s in the Details & Other Stories that I’d started a while ago and finally finished this year. It was an especially cathartic story for me and I hope you enjoy it. The titular story in that collection was inspired by the cover, which was a new experience for me and one I’ve repeated.
Obviously I got the darkness out of my system, because my 2020 Christmas story is probably the lowest-angst I’ve ever written! Handspun is a short and sweet story I’d been wanting to write for a while. I wasn’t sure it was on brand, though, so I held back. It’s not super angsty like most of my writing, but I think that’s okay. 😊
In November I drafted a new novella during NaNoWriMo and am almost ready to send it to betas and have it edited. I’m super proud of it, and am looking forward to getting it out into the world! It’s book two in a new series—more on that as it gets closer to release!
I also have plans for a book three in that series, and a new series of three novellas. Those stories should take me through the first half of 2021. Once I know what I want to accomplish after that, I’ll let you know.
Happy Holidays! I hope you have a wonderful holiday and a happy and prosperous 2021!
