Making room for the new by removing the old
As many of you know, I decided to take a break in 2020 to focus on my bill paying career and I am happy to say things are going really well. So well in fact that my time away from writing might not be as long as I once thought. Make no mistake… I never really stopped writing, but I hadn’t planned to publish until late summer 2020 at the earliest. Well that has changed slightly. I was able to settle into my new job and the team I manage is so great that I got some time back and started work on some new stories.
You may have heard me mention on twitter is My Perfect Partner: David and Tina which is currently in peer review. It’s a wonderful story that I started last year and most of it was written while I was in the air flying from one office to another. Scheduled for release in the spring, this new story is more than just a sex story – it shares a conflict many of us in “the community” struggle with… life, love and companionship without secrets. Along with MPP Part 2, I have started work on some new short stories one of which I am looking to make into a graphic novel or at least a cheap comic book story. Now, with new stories on the horizon, I need to make room on the shelf for them and will be retiring some older stories soon.
These titles will be retired soon, so don’t miss out on them.
