Current Works in Progress

March 2017

Rewriting a story I released once as Siren. Currently at 10K. I need a new name for this one! This will likely be my next release.

After my confidence blip, I’ve decided to re release Light Up the Dark sometime in April.

Shelter Me is on hold for a while.

The Witness of the Sun is at 23K.

 

Jan 2017

Shelter Me sequel to Foxes from Micky’s POV. Currently at 12.5K

Star Boy my superhero story is a 9K, and I’m hoping not more than 20K when it’s done.

The Witness of the Sun is at 11.5K. I really love writing this one. I may concentrate on it for a while. This will be novel length.

 

December 2016

Light Up the Dark is ready for release on 3rd January^^

I’m flitting a little with current works in progress. Shelter Me, the sequel to Foxes is currently at 10K. I’ve started The Witness of the Sun, which I’ve wanted to write for ages. It’s pnr (paranormal romance) and is currently at 3K. I still want to finish Blackbirds and Fearless and I want to rework Siren for re-release, too. So a lot is going on!

This is the link to YES! My flashfic for BMBR 🙂

 

October 2016

Progress

Light Up the Dark is finished at just under 100K. It’s not as angsty as TINALS or Foxes, but there are some dark/thrillerish moments. And Nicky may be my favourite character ever! Now I just need to figure out what the hell to do with it… Here’s a draft blurb:

For two years Nicky has wandered the dark empty corridors of the overgrown Thorn Hall, unseen and untouched, feeling like he no longer exists. His only company, the cold man who promised to keep him safe from harm, Lance.

But when Lance dies, Nicky’s assurance of safety disintegrates and his world suddenly becomes a lot more real and a lot more dangerous. Scared to leave the house, Nicky longs for daylight. When he employs a gardener to clear the over grown bushes and vines that have nearly swallowed Thorn Hall whole, the last thing Nicky expects a little light to do is show him something to fight for.

Eighteen months in a Young Offender’s Institute has taught Cai two things- he occupies the playful puppy end of the how dangerous are you? spectrum and he has an unfortunate knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Desperate for a job, he takes the first offer he gets. Even though Thorn Hall creeps the hell out of him and he barely knows one end of a pair of garden shears from the other.

But things start to fall apart when Cai is drawn in to Nicky’s strange world of sticky notes and secrets. All Cai wants to do is shut out the world and keep Nicky safe, but Cai finds he is now a target. Blamed for a crime he didn’t commit. Desperate not to go back to prison, he digs deep and risks all the good things in life to help Nicky run.

But now Nicky has someone he wants to protect, he knows he can’t run anymore.

Started the superhero story for an anthology I’ve been asked to contribute to–Blackbird. But it’s turned into more of a fairy story and it wants to be a longer story (currently 12K), so I’m keeping it for myself and I’ve started another superhero story with a working title of Fearless (currently 2k).

Finished a flash fic piece called YES! and managed to go waaaay over the word count I was supposed to try and stick to 😛 I’ll post a link when this is released.

 

August 2016

Progress

Light Up the Dark is at 91K. I’m hoping to finish it before the end of the month. Finally. Then I just have decide what to do with it!

Have made a start on Blackbird, my superhero anthology story.

Desperate to make a start on The Witness of The Sun. This story really wants to be written next.

I wrote an angsty blog post on why I like books to break me, for Binge on Books Perspectives series, here.

 

June 2016

Progress

Light up the Dark is at 61K. Finally writing more than I’m deleting. Progress is being made. Still feel as though this story has a ways to go though! I’m hoping it’s going to be less than 100K but everything I write seems to be getting longer 😛

Having ideas for superhero story for anthology I’ve been invited to contribute too. Possible title: Blackbird

Really want to write Witness of the Sun-I’ve been thinking about this one for ages!

 

March 2016

Progress

Edits mostly this month.

Wildflowers edits are all done and publication date is set for 17th July.

Te Quiero is edited and going out to proofreaders soon and I will sent a publication date for mid May. The lovely Natasha Snow has done a fab cover for this that I’m excited to share!

I am writing a short sequel to Te Quiero called Silver and Gold currently 4k.

Light Up the Dark is coming along slowly, currently 32K

 

February 2016

Progress

Wildflowers has been contracted by Dreamspinner for publication July/ August. First edits on this have already been done. This was the first story I ever finished and it is also perhaps the angstiest! 0.o

Te Quiero I pulled this from anthology, and I’ve expanded it to 18K. I will be self publishing it sometime in the next couple of months. This story is low angst sweetness.

Light up The Dark is now 25K and it will probably be 60-80K when it’s finished, but I need to pause it for a while.

New story! Working titles Blood on the Water/ Shelter, featuring Pasha from TINALS. Currently 1K.

 

January 2016

Progress

Wildflowers done and submitted 23K novella.

Te Quiero submitted to ‘Taking a Chance’ anthology. 11K. I really could have gone on much longer with this story 🙂

Light Up the Dark, my pyromaniac story, is currently at 20K. This will be novel length by the time it’s done, I think.

 

December 2015

Progress

Part rewrite of Wildflowers needs some expansion, planning to do this in January.

10K written of Circus story for ‘taking a chance’ anthology, but need to cut length to keep it under 10K and finish it! Deadline end of January.

10K written of Te Quiero my back up ‘taking a chance’ anthology story which I got a bit hooked on 🙂 Aiming for 15-20K novella with this one. Want to finish it January.

After those my plan is to finish Light Up The Dark, The Witness of the Sun and All Cats Are Grey.

 

November 2015

Progress

Currently rewriting Wildflowers 20K novella. This is the first story I ever completed.

Light Up the Dark 13K done. Taking a break from it for a while as need some thinking time on it. This may turn out to be a novel rather than a novella.

Made a start of ‘taking a chance’ story for anthology.

You can read the flash fic I wrote for Boy Meets Boy Reviews Brighter Than Any Dark here.

 

October 2015

Progress

Just Like Heaven Completed 27K and it’s going to be going through edits with Boys in Our Books very soon. I’m writing blurb in between typing this post 😉

Foxes This story was contracted with Dreamspinner last month and will be coming out Feb 2016. I’ve just finished my first edits on it 🙂

Light up the Dark I’ve written approx. 2k on this, and I’m just playing around with the tone and direction of the story. I’d like to get this one finished before December, so I’m hoping it’s novella length.

I’ve been invited to a short story for another anthology with the theme ‘taking a chance’. First draft for this is due end of Jan 2016, so I probably won’t start this month.

Also, this month I’ll be writing a flash fic for Boy Meets Boy Reviews and I have a post for Queer Romance Month towards the end of October.

 

September 2015

Progress:

Just Like Heaven currently 20K written and one more chapter to go! This story is for Boys in Our Books ‘Wish Come True Anthology’ release date 1st December all proceeds to Lost N Found Youth.

 

August 2015

Progress:

Foxes is done at 100K. Wow, longest story I’ve ever written.

On to a quick short (10K-15K) for an anthology I’ve been asked to do–working title Just Like Heaven 🙂

 

July 2015

Progress:

Foxes currently at 85K. The end is in sight (I think). I’m hoping less than 10K away, but who knows! This one is going to need a lot of editing.

I have a real desire to write a short low angst story after Foxes, and before I concentrate on The Witness of the Sun. I have a title (titles often come first with me :P) Light Up the Dark.

 

June 2015

Progress:

Foxes is currently at 66K and no sign of story letting up soon, eeek!

New free story I wrote in March is out: Lima Oscar Victor Echo and the Truth About Everything.

I’ve taken Siren down to re write and lengthen into a more complete story (it was a one shot from a much longer fantasy story).

I’m thinking about rewriting Wildflowers (first story I ever completed).
