First I was rear-ended on the 2nd (I was stopped at a crosswalk) and trying to recover from the physical and property damages from that in the midst of trying to get ready for Yule with my extended family and especially my youngest son - now 9. Since I'm the primary "elf" for Yule and I was restricted to not driving or shopping for a while, I was stressed out :)
Then I had to put one of my cats to sleep on the 21st - his illness was very sudden and very severe as well as quick progressing. That took pretty much everything I had left and I felt like I was holding on by a thread.
But now it's 2011, I'm allowed to be back at my Evil Day Job full time and can sit at the computer for a while now. I have a new car and not crying every time I think about what happened with Alex. Time to move forward!
I'm spending the first couple of weeks of January organizing my office and my plans for the year. This includes getting my blogging back into a rhythm and doing it ahead of time!
I'm working on an urban fantasy/steampunk called Desert Alchemy at the moment but I have the following list of possibilities for the project after that:
- In Service (This is the full length sequel to a m/m steampunk I have coming out in February. Think airships, Hawaiian opium dens and hunky men in uniforms).
- Music of the Heart (This is the first in the m/m celtic rock band series Bran's Visions)
- Hidden Depths: Secret Graves (This is the first in my m/m sniper/hydro-geologist series)
- Unnamed Yet (This is the continuation of Bittersweet so I can finish this story)
Thoughts? What have I forgotten? I can't promise I'll do requests first but I want to take them into account when planning my year.
