I'm the worst blogger ever, but if it's any consolation, I'm not participating in real life either. I've been writing nonstop lately. Not just getting Eat the Ones You Love out, but also working on my next foray into Urban Fantasy. My beta readers have seen little bits of what will become a novel called Monstrous, but that's a little bit into the future. That said, working on two books keeps me more than busy and I couldn't be happier about that.
I'm going to have a cover reveal for Monstrous soon, and it is another gorgeous one done by Conzpiracy Digital Arts. The book itself will be an Urban Fantasy that hopefully no one has seen before. Equal parts surreal and dark and brutal. But more on that later.
I'm over halfway done with Eat the Ones You Love, which is pretty much where the story starts to write itself. Should be a big push to the finale and then I'll be able to get it to my editor, and then out to you all. This installation of Jenny is a bit more introspective than the first one, hopefully for the better. But as always, the readers do the judging. I just show up and type.
And if you're wondering (or care at all), I'm still working on getting the creepy fairy tale compilation Wicked Clockwork Heart out. After moving across the ocean, illnesses, and trying to save lost causes, it feels good to be back in the saddle, even if my work is piling up around my ears. I'd much rather have too much work than no work at all. In other words:
Damn it feels good to be a gangster.
Now, back to the zombie apocalypse with me. Although as Jenny is finding, the zombies are the least of the world's troubles.
