I hope to add more formats to ARe, and get the file uploaded to Amazon soon. For now, because of recent eye surgery, I must take a break and wait to fuss with the formatting processes when I can see clearly.

Not Disappearing

Last I wrote, a month ago, it was just a quick note to direct you to a short interview. Before that, ten days previous, a simple announcement about Fallen being rereleased. I’ve not been much better about new chapters for CRANK. I’m due for one today. Technically. I know what needs to come next, but I haven’t sat down to write at all since the last chapter.

I’d say I blame the new job, but that wouldn’t be fair. I like my job. It was the right move. It is also mentally exhausting. I work much harder each day now, than I did a year ago. Though it may sound like one, that is not a complaint. I do wish I had more time to write. However, I also love my job right now.

Am I quitting the fictional world? Absolutely not! I cannot, however, promise anything specific at this point in my life. Sometime down the road, I do expect work to settle enough to write more regularly, but until that happens, I cannot keep stressing about what I’m not doing.

For now, dear Readers, subscribe to the RSS feed on this blog, and I’ll post when I can. I’ll write when I have time, as long as I’m not forcing it, dreading it, or doing it half-assed because I’m just too tired, distracted, or uninterested to proceed properly. I do still intend to finish the Man Whore series, and the het erotic romance I’ve been working on with dear friend, Dorothy Shaw. I have a couple of stand-along M/M stories started that haven’t been looked at in months. I still think about them. I’m not giving up, but instead, acknowledging that I simply don’t have the time. Not quality time. And that’s what I need.

Don’t give up on me yet. I certainly have not.

Friday Five Interview

I’m over at Amanda Young’s blog today, answering her Friday Five questions. Please drop by and say hello; and, if you haven’t already explored Amanda’s fiction, stick around there for a while and see what she writes too.

Fallen – Officially Rereleased!

Fallen_coverlg

I haven’t said much about the pains of Silver Publishing’s demise. I still probably won’t. No one’s asked, and I’ve moved on.

I’ve moved on thanks to the wonderful people at Loose Id.

Fallen officially hits the Loose Id electronic shelves today. It was my first baby, and I’m thrilled to have it’s new home with LI. My super-awesome editor, Rory, helped me clean it up and answer some of the questions I’d seen in reviews of the first edition.

Check it out over at Loose Id by clicking HERE.

This tender, innocent story of an angel falling… in love, from grace, however you’d like to call it — still moves me, even after running it through edits with two different publishers.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.


Vacation

I’m visiting Slash & Burn today… while on vacation. Does that count as multi-tasking?

Visit here: Slash & Burn

Also, the next new CRANK chapter will probably not be posted until my return, mid-November. Thank you for your patience!

 


16 Free Books!

Halloween Day, Loose Id is giving away all 16 of its November new releases.

Check out the details on the blog, Loosen You Id.


Another Status Update for Out of Print Books (aka former SP releases)

Quick (or maybe not so much) update on my four former SP stories.

PiaVeleno_ForEdenTheShadowfireRing_200x300* Bound By Love has been officially retitled For Eden: The Shadowfire Ring. It will be rereleased in February, four years after its first release, but less than a year after rights reverted and it went out of print. Prepping for this release has reminded me of the ideas I had for these two. Bound was never meant to be a solo release. Those of you who read it before it disappeared from shelves know that Beliaz made a deal at the end that could lead to all kinds of trouble.

 

Fallen_coverlg* Fallen will be rereleased at Loose Id in less than a month. It was originally slated for the first Tuesday of November. I’m scheduled to be out of town that week and that brought back memories of a certain trolling fiasco that occurred so conveniently during a previous out of country trip. Funny how these things happen while one’s back is turned and one’s internet connection is severed. Needless to say, I requested a different date and the wonderful LI folks readily agreed.

 

PiaVeleno_MyGhost_200x300* My Ghost is still on sale at Smashwords.com with the coupon code HE39Z. This coupon will remain active through the end of October. I’m a bit surprised at how little the code has been used so far, but I guess that means you’ve all already read this dark little ghost story. I like the new cover art so much I’m considering a sequel just to see that model grace another cover. What do you think?

 

* Man Whore is still out of print. If you see it for sale somewhere, please let me know. Damn pirates! I have a couple of ideas on where I may submit it for republication, but I want to clean up the synopsis for the entire series before doing so. Some reviewers commented that the first novel seemed fragmented, like two stories smashed together into one book. I get that. As a series, that’ll make more sense, so I want to make sure I can sell the series theme with the first book, and give the editor enough info to tie future hints into the first story. Give me some time, dear readers. I will get this done, and with that, the next story in the series.

 

That’s all for reverted rights. In other writing news, I do have a couple of works in progress, but nothing ready to send out just yet. One is a contemporary friends-to-lovers theme that I’ve been working on on and off for a while, and the other is the sequel to Fallen – aka Bran’s story. With the work I’ve been doing getting Fallen ready to publish, Bran is more in the forefront of my mind, though further from being ready to submit. I should get back to him now…

Happy October, dear Readers!

 


Cover Reveal: Fallen

We’re about a month away from the rerelease of Fallen. I’m so excited! This is the first novel I published, so I’m extra fond of Mal and Bran. Originally published with the now-dead Silver Publishing, I was heartbroken when I had to take Fallen out of print. Special thanks to the wonderful people at Loose Id for giving this novella a new home!

Cover art by Fiona Jayde

Man has free will, and guardian angels have an eternal place in the holy host.

When unexpected feelings interfere with Malchediel’s guidance of a mortal being, he must decide if his love for one man is true, or the work of the devil. Charged with the soul of handsome but suicidal Bran Weller, Malchediel faces a second challenge: Bran’s steadfast belief that homosexuality is not wrong despite the Church’s view of his lifestyle.

In the course of his angelic duties, Mal is tempted to turn a blind eye to long-standing rules of guardianship as he falls in love with his charge. Torn between faith in God and belief that every man deserves love, Malchediel must find a way to balance heart and soul or risk a Fall to Hell.
