Spring is almost here. Sure, there’s still a shit ton of snow outside, and just this week, it was minus bullshit outside. But I can FEEL it coming. I hate winter. When I say that, a lot of people are all “Well no one’s making you live in Canada.” Fuck you guys. My bank account is making me live here, so piss off.
Anyway, I find writing difficult when I’m moody, and around February-March, my mood swings are terrifying. So, not a lot gets done. It’s dark when I get up, it’s dark when I go to bed, sometimes it’s dark and gloomy all fucking day. It’s wet and cold and there’s ice everywhere. I spend hours on Netflix, on Facebook, or just napping, because even if I liked going outside (which I don’t) why the fuck would I? However, I feel the itch starting, the mood improving, and I’m thinking there’s going to be a lot of writing happening very soon. That’s a good thing too. I still have the final installment of Fangs and Fur to finish. It’s almost half done. See?
For the Love of Gods book 5 needs writing as well (it’s barely started) and I have my NaNoWriMo novel to think about. Should I traditionally publish or self-publish? I always have this discussion with myself. I send a couple of queries as I try to decide, and in the end, we all know what happens.
One good thing to come out of February this year is I tried my hand at erotic horror. It’s a very interesting genre, and not as easy as I thought it would be to write. However, I love that it forces me outside of my comfort zone. After finishing a couple of stories, I submitted them to an anthology. One was psychological, no gore or guts or obvious gross, while the other was full on cringe-worthy shit. Think severed hand in your what-nots gross. Yeah. Anyway, I figured if they liked any of what I submitted, it’d be the subtle horror, but no. They liked the over the top one. I’ve made the short list, which means I have to wait a few more weeks to find out if they’re going to use it in the anthology. I’ll keep you posted.
So all of this procrastinating and missing the warm, sunny weather made me think, I haven’t done much marketing this winter. Why not have a big spring sale on all my titles? Well, I didn’t plan so well, so I can’t give you discount prices on all of my book, but there are several I’ve marked down to just 99 cents.
Starting March 5th, (that’s Saturday) the titles below are just 99 cents until March 12th (the following Saturday). In addition to that, I’ve put my short story collection, Sweet Revenge, on a free promotion from March 5th to 9th.
… AND DON’T FORGET THE FREEBIE!!
So, get in on the cheap shit and bring on the spring. Now, I have to prepare for my House of Cards marathon.
