What is the difference between an author and a wanna-be-author? Talent? Ideas? Luck?
No – my theory is tenacity. An author sticks at it. An author is simply someone who managed to finish the job of writing a manuscript.
You can all argue with me about this – and I look forward to the debate – but at this moment, I stick by my statement.
Which means, at this moment, I’m firmly in the wanna-be-author camp.
I have lots on the go, but nothing finished. There are two more releases of mine to come – Safe in His Arms which is about 6 weeks away from publication (watch this space for the cover reveal next week) and then another story called Shawn’s Law which will be coming in early 2015, but I’m still working on other stuff.
<------------ OMG - Cover hint for my new book!! Cover reveal coming next week....
My problem has been too many ideas – and that has come from the readers.
By far, the most-asked about book has been Loving Jay – will there be a sequel? My answer, at the moment: no. BUT I do have the beginnings of a book where Jay and Liam feature heavily. It takes place about nine months after the end of Loving Jay. It’s the story of Jay’s friend – Kee. He’s had some relationship troubles, and has been out of the dating scene for a while, so hasn’t met Liam yet. It turns out that Kee and Liam get along really well. Therefore the readers will get look at how Liam and Jay are travelling in life. Will Jay and his dressing room fit into Liam’s apartment? How is Liam finding life as a “gay man”? You will also get to find out why Jay is sulking in the bathroom. I’ll give you a hint – Liam is denying him something extremely… ahh… pleasurable because he’s been a bad boy…
In 6 weeks, you'll get to meet Lon and Casey, my next couple. I’m sure that when this book is finished, you will be asking me about their friends. So, I’m busily writing more on their stories. (So don't ask - because the answer is YES!)
Therefore you can see I’ve got a lot on my plate – and now the test comes. Will I be able to knuckle down, finish these novels, and get them out to you?
Feel free to bug me about them every couple of weeks to make sure I’m doing my work.
