2017 in review and my writing goals for 2018

2017 is drawing to a close. Just three more days and we’ll be into 2018. For me, the week between Christmas and the New Year is always a time to look back at the past year and make goals for the next year. So, how did I do on my writing goals for 2017? A year ago, I posted my goals for 2017, which were: Write and publish two English novels.  I did achieve that goal. My medical romance Falling Hard was published in April, and Perfect Rhythm, a romance novel with an asexual main character, was published in September. …

Writing hours in August 2015

Fall has officially started–and the weather turned cooler and rainy here in Germany right on time. Not that I mind after the very hot summer we had. Meanwhile, I’ve been working hard to wrap up several of my projects so my readers will have more reading material this winter. I finished my romance novel Just Physical, which ended up at 100,000 words. I’m very happy with how the story turned out. It’s with the editor right now, and I’m hoping the required revisions won’t be too extensive. I also finished the edits for Rosen für die Staatsanwältin, the German version of …

My new lesbian romance novel, Damage Control, is out!

You would think that after publishing ten books (not counting the novellas and short story collections), having a new novel out would get old. Well, it doesn’t. My tenth novel, Damage Control, has just been published, and I’ve been grinning like a fool ever since Astrid, my publisher, told me she had just uploaded it to the major bookstores. For some reason, this book feels special. Not that my other books aren’t near and dear to my heart—they are. But this one is extra special. Maybe because at 140,000 words it’s one of my longer works after I wrote a …

My new paranormal romance Good Enough to Eat is available!

You know the old adage advising people to “never say never”? I should really take it to heart. When my historical romance Backwards to Oregon was first published and readers kept asking me for a sequel, I always insisted that I’d never write one. Now there’s not only a novel-length sequel, but also several short stories that continue to give us glimpes into the Hamiltons’ lives. I also always said that I’d never write a book with another writer. I admired writers who could co-author a book, but I never thought it was for me. Well, you can probably guess …

New lesbian romance: Under a Falling Star is available!

Have you ever wished on a falling star? Austen, the main character in my new romance novel, Under a Falling Star, has just one wish: to prove herself to her new boss. That’s why she volunteers to decorate the Christmas tree in the company’s lobby on her first day in the new job. Dee, the company’s COO, is a control freak who leaves nothing to chance when it comes to work, not even the positioning of the lights on the Christmas tree. When she tries to rearrange them, the star-shaped tree topper falls off and hits her on the head. …

Writing hours in August 2014

August was an incredibly busy and productive month for me, as my colorful calendar can attest to. The green stickers point out days on which I wrote over 2,000 words, while yellow stands for days with 1,000-1,999 words. Not only were two new short stories of mine published (“Pigeon Post,” which is still free today, and “Whining and Dining“), but I also completed two novels–Under a Falling Star and its German translation, Vorsicht, Sternschnuppe. Under a Falling Star is with the proofreader right now and will be published in October. I also completed revising my contribution to Ylva Publishing’s Christmas …

My short story Pigeon Post is now available

I’m pleased to announce that my latest short story, “Pigeon Post,” has been published today, even a little bit ahead of schedule. “Pigeon Post” is a short story, but at 13,000 words, it’s not a very short one, and at $0.99, it’s not expensive either. It’s part of my shape-shifter series and stars Kelsey and Rue, the main characters from True Nature. If you have read other books in that series, you might remember that the Wrasa, my shape-shifters, are much more lesbian/gay-friendly than your average human. So it’s no wonder that their PR experts come up with an interesting …

Writing Hours in June + July 2014

I just realized that, while on vacation, I forgot to post the numbers for June, so now I’m taking a look at the writing hours for both months. Since I traveled for most of June and July, I didn’t get as much writing done as usual. But it was totally worth it. I had a wonderful time seeing the West Coast of the US, attending the GCLS conference, and meeting friends that I’d never seen in person before. If I take that into consideration, I think my writing hours still look pretty decent. Most of my time was spent working …

Golden Crown Literary Society Awards 2014

Now that I’m writing full time, I finally had the chance to travel to Portland and attend the Golden Crown Literary Society conference. It was an awesome experience that I definitely intend to repeat next year. It’s hard to describe how it feels to be among nearly 300 lesbians who are just as dedicated to lesbian fiction as I am. I had the chance to meet so many readers and fellow authors, including some of the writers whose work I admired for the last fifteen years. Tonight, on the last full day of the conference, the “Goldie” awards were presented. …
