    So, a funny thing happened on the way to writing a short story for an anthology with a late December, 2015 deadline…I missed the deadline and decided to turn the short story into a novella. Actually a lot of things, some funny and some not so, have happened over the last six months, but I refuse to digress.

    Reminiscent of my naiveté when I started writing The Need (this will be a quick diversion because it’s already a screenplay and then I can go back to working on my Sex, Life, & Hannah series that I have been trying to finish since 2013), I thought that this story was going to be a good one-month exercise in writing something not complicated. If it got into the anthology, yay for me (new experience), if not, I could use it as a fun teaser to some future book, or a freebie for people signing up to my newsletter.

    Six months later…I really hate not finishing a project and I am really bad at multi-tasking, i.e. I should either write faster or simultaneously be able to work on several manuscripts at the same time, but alas, my brain does not work that way, nor do I believe in scolding myself for real life sometimes getting in the way of my fantasy life. One day I will meet my goal of writing and publishing one book a year. #goals

    Hard Trigger. What do you think of that title? This story literally started as something completely different in my head, morphed partially into a protagonist I had created while in a UCLA screenwriting class in 2000, and keeps taking a sharp turn every time I think I have it all figured out.

    I can’t quite yet articulate the main plot of the story. I don’t even have a good log line yet. Luckily there was a log line refresher at my last LARA meeting, and it was also part of this pretty good writing seminar that I took this past Sunday. All I will say for now is that the protagonist is a badass bitch treading on shaky illegal activities for a living and mourning the loss of her lover. She’s legitimately trying to set the course of her world right by doing some illicit things, and keeping her emotions at bay. She believes the antagonist is her new lover until she realizes they both have the same goal. #goals

    Mind you, I still have 10,000 words to draft to get to novella status, but stay tuned, lovers. This is going to be a good one.

    Hello lovers,

    I hope you all had a fabulous holiday season and brought the new year in style.

    I decided to wind down the year quietly; taking some much needed time to myself. Emotional and creative rejuvenation was definitely the modus operandi. No traveling, a few visits with friends, but mostly just organizing the madness that had erupted in my office from all the year’s projects, hitting the gym and yoga studio as much as possible, massaging and steaming all my anxieties away, and letting go of the pressure to achieve and accomplish. If only for a few weeks.

    Alright, there was one vinyl party I threw into the mix because I finally bought a record player, and in the days prior to and after, there was a lot of listening to music. Just listening to music. Not as background noise while doing tasks, but really listening. Something about flipping vinyl and putting the needle on those records that was really good for the soul.

    But hey, it’s 2016! And it’s time to get back into it. The first IT of the year being an eBook promotion for The Need.

    This Friday, January 8th, through Tuesday, January 12th, you can download an eBook copy of The Need for $1.99 everywhere the eBook is sold (Amazon, All Romance, iBooks, Nook, and Kobo). That’s a 60% discount off the regular eBook price. If you haven’t gotten a copy of The Need yet, this is the time to do it. If you have, but know some friends who haven’t, tell them to get in on this special 5-day promotion.

    Cheers to 2016, lovers! Let’s get after everything we need…

    It’s the third day of fall, but it’s still hot as hell in L.A. Still definitely white wine weather. White wine, sandals, chocolate, and loose outfit weather. It’s also the half-way point in my Goodreads giveaway of two paperback copies of The Need. That’s right. For all of you that still crave that touch and smell of a real book (me included) here is your chance to win!

    You’re on Goodreads, right? And if so, are we friends yet? I believe it was Mark Twain that said, “Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience, this is the ideal life.” Or maybe it’s just something that I came across on the oft-unreliable internet. Regardless, I totally concur.

    Cheers to a beautiful fall, lovers.
