Last week I was in the UK, in Brighton on the south coast, to be exact. I was there for some much needed vacationing, but also for the UK Meet. It was all so wonderful, although I still loathe flying and came back with a cold that made the plane ride back a bit of a bitch. My ears are still popping a few days later… ugh.

Brighton was marvellous. I’ve been in Hastings which is about one hour east from Brighton and much smaller, but everything else was pretty much as I remembered. I felt at home, somehow. I will definitely go back to Brighton at some point.

Meeting some of the authors I’ve admired and read for a couple of years now was great, as was the whole meet. Meeting or “meeting” as I didn’t get a chance to talk to most of them, people like Zahra Owens, Aleksandr Voinov, Sue Brown, Josephine Myles, Claire London and Jordan Castillo Price, just to mention few, was amazing! To think I was there, one author among others… mindblowing!

In case you’re reading this and you’re a friend of mine on Facebook, I posted 80 photos of the trip today. There are random shots of Brighton and plenty of photos from the Harry Potter Studio Tour as well. That tour in itself was a huge thing for both myself and my teenaged HP-fanatic sister. :) I really loved the place and all the things we saw there.

So what’s next? Well, I’m in the process of trying to tackle Finnshifters 3 now that I’m back home. At the moment I know I should try and write Technically Dead 2, but I may have to skip it for now. It just doesn’t inspire me… Ugh. The depression makes it impossible for me to write anything that doesn’t just flow naturally and since there’s another story in my mind, I may have to write it next instead.

There’s also a freebie short story coming out in the beginning of October. It’s called When I Say When and it’s based on a random idea and another idea I got from listening to too much Foo Fighters. Go figure. You can find the story from Dreamspinner Press’ website.

That’s about it for now. I’ll try to blog more in the future, promise!

News and stuff

Posted in Uncategorized

Damn I’m good with blog post headlines…

A few things: First of all, I’m in the process of editing one freebie short story (will be out at some point through Dreamspinner Press, I’ll keep you posted) and Finnshifters 2 that now has a brand new title!

Finnshifters 2 was supposed to be called, or rather its working title was, Moving On. Then another book named Moving On was released by DSP last month (I think) and I had to come up with a new name for FS2.

The new name is Tiglon by the Tail. I love the name and I wouldn’t have come up with it without some help from the editorial department, so thanks! Also, the release date is in September, which day, I don’t know yet.

Secondly, I’m going to start the process of having a new website done! It will be easier to update (thank you for everyone who hasn’t emailed me about the lack of updates on my current site…) and it will look really good, I bet. Can’t wait to see what AngstyG comes up with!

Thirdly, on August 4th, next Saturday, I’ll be hosting a Facebook chat on Dreamspinner’s Facebook page. Now, a bunch of stuff will be happening there, but there will be giveaways and even a paperback giveaway (signed and delivered to you wherever you live!) So keep an eye out!

Fourthly (this is getting silly…) in September, there will be an event in Brighton called UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet and I’ll be attending with plenty of other authors. So in case you’re in Brighton on September 15th, please do come meet us!

That’s about it for now!
