So many projects, and the clock is ticking down on the due date. Mine, not the projects, but I plan to finish all I can before the Big Arrival, after which I will do a lot of napping and reading and also diaper-changing.
I did an experimental story towards the end of the year which taught me a lot. I then wrote Mad Stone, a Neuri novelette in between Animal Attraction and Red Queen, which taught me even more. I am now applying what I've learned to Red Queen and have high hopes it will see the light of day this year, as the book I wanted it to be.
Other stuff in the works: standalone ebook versions of Shoot to Thrill and Wolf at the Door. (Finished but the formatting, covers, etc. will take time.)
Under development: Channeling Cleopatra, probably also a standalone ebook. Unless I shock myself by finding a NY taker for a book about ancient weapons of mass destruction and the professor and medically-discharged Army Ranger attempting to keep them out of the wrong hands while failing to keep their hands off each other. Kiss of the Demon, which is really dark and probably not a good one to work on with impending post-partum insanity looming, but then again, maybe it'll be therapy.
