Past the Novella Stage

I haven't really blogged about my writing in quite some time but feel compelled to share my thoughts with whoever has been checking my blog out. I've been writing for a little over two years now and had the pleasure of having my first book published a little over a year and a half ago.

Since then I've criticized myself for trying to put out several books per month. Back in 2009 my schedule didn't really permit this. Currently, I can't even crank out one book per month and have decided on writing lengthier books. I enjoy writing and want fans of my work to thoroughly enjoy what I'm submitting to my publishers so I've been taking my time.

 The thing is, I've had so many ideas come to mind that it was so overwhelming for me and I just needed to take a break. Actually I think i've overloaded myself. My muse took off for the longest time and I was unable to maintain that needed flow when writing.

Well, I've just started writing again and I now know what I must do. Grammy of The Paranormal Romance Guild suggested that I write longer stories. Now mind you, I've thought about this quite some time ago but was always very eager to have my shorter stories published first. Unfortunately the ideas have been so vast, and cramming these thoughts into a short novella has taken from my characters and sometimes even the plot, so has juggling three or more WIPs at the same time.

I'm very happy about this decision and eagerly awaiting the completion of The Beast Within trilogy.

I'm reposting this article for a great friend and mentor. I didn't have time to read the entire article when it was first published on Facebook, but I sat down and read everything word from word today and I'm very pissed right now....Or maybe I'm just having a bad day, I don't know.

For those of you who claim to be writers but can't come up with your own bloody ideas, seriously, stop ripping other folks' work off and selling it as your own. This is really pathetic and needs to stop now. And another thing, for those of you who claim to be readers but really are rip-off artists joining authors' groups just to steal an idea, your really fucking pathetic and should be.. Okay, I'm going to stop myself now because I almost said something uncivilized.

Five Black Roses Available at ARe

Good morning, and a happy Monday to ya! My short story Five Black Roses is now available on All Romance Ebooks.

Exactly at midnight on May 5th, 2006 Mahogany Messeroux cast a spell to obtain the perfect man.  She never dreamed the spell would deliver Acacius Montoya, a warrior straight from the Battle of Puebla, Mexico in 1862. For Mahogany, it was love at first sight. But--there is just one problem. The handsome Latino must return to his own time after every Cinco de Mayo and can only be summoned once a year. Five years later she discovers she has the opportunity of saving the man she loves and keeping him in her world on a regular basis, or so she thought.
Acacius Montoya is doomed to repeat the same day at the Battle of Puebla for all eternity thanks to an evil warlock, Maximilian. The ebony bruja intervened just in time to save his soul from The Harvester. But who will save Mahogany from making a mistake that may cause her to miss the spiritual evolvement necessary in shaping  her future as a person and a witch?
