Progress Report 05/07

So I thought I’d do something else, for you and me, and start tracking my projects. I have three contracted projects and two spec projects (as in want to sell) that I’ve scheduled for this year. No, I’m not really sure how I’m going to get them done and do my day job too, but I’m making an effort, right? At the minimum of weekly or maximum when I have a good writing jag, I’ll post my progress here.

Project One: Channeling Moonlight, for the Vegas Bites Back anthology:

I enjoyed writing this story, which features Guy, who had a serious thing for Laurel in L.A. Banks’ story in the anthology. When I get the go-ahead, I’ll post an excerpt from it in the Books section.

Project Two: Sex on South Beach, for the What White Boyz Want anthology

This is a light and sexy IR novella that is inspired by true events. Some of the Slam Jam ’06 ladies know what I’m talking about. 🙂

Project Three: Touch of Darkness, urban fantasy with romantic elements:

This project currently has no home, but I’m loving this story. I’m trying to get it to the point where I can send it around and/or garner agent interest before I write the entire thing. Reality is, I have to work on the projects that are paying first, so this one will have to be the stepchild of the bunch unless the muse bitch-slaps me.

Who knows? Maybe cyber humiliation will motivate me to write faster.
