I have good news and bad news for anyone anticipating a sequel/end of a trilogy.  I have been working on rebooting the Playing with Tigers series, and plotting out the third, I have been editing my brains out on the Swordmaster Dasan series, and I've been putting in plenty of time on my upcoming wolf shifter stories.  I even threw together a crappy cover for the Dasan series, which is slightly less bad than the one I've been using!  YAY!

Problem - I've been working on them all, so none are done...

Time constraints here have made it so that I can only work for about two hours a day on anything that I'm writing before I need to go and tend to some manner of bullshit.  I apologize for the delay, but I can't work around the schedule that I am being stuck into, no matter how much I want to.  And trust me when I say that I really, really want to.  If I don't write, the people who know me well can tell.  It's sick, withdrawals that are comparable to my failed attempt to quit smoking.  My husband caught me talking to the Kuerig and losing an argument against it a few days ago, it's rather pathetic and somewhat entertaining.

My thanks to a shiny nickel and Jconn for yelling at me, lol!  I tend to forget that people give half of a crap about my older books, since the nature of them ensures that they aren't discussed often face-to-face and the PWT series is so large that only two of my friends even read it.  Speaking of which, I want to take a moment to remind people that the Playing with Tigers series is based on feedback and suggestions when it comes to the sex scenes.  In the first book, the graphic rape, and the second time Keel stays with Loki are prime examples of suggestions/challenges that were issued by friends.  Jade's kink as well, now that I think of it.  I will be hacking the second one to pieces and spicing it up, because I had left out the bondage between Loki and Keel since I had received requests for so much other stuff.  A large portion of the racier scenes hit the folder of no return because the first in depth review that I had stated that the first book had way to much sex in it, and I shrugged and took the advice.  The only problem is that it is now very boring lol.  So I'll be fixing that after I fix the first and finish the third SMdasan book.

And if by chance my shiny nickel finds her way here, I had a guilty laugh over the *brow knit* line that had coffee running out of my nose.  Well played, Miss.  The Cat & the Crow was the first book that I took my time with, and as a result, the ones before it are very obnoxious to read.  Amateur writing at it's worst, I apologize again haha.  I will get to your Playing with Tigers 3 after I finish the other series that accompanies it, I promise. 

Which brings me to Swordmaster Dasan 3 - This book is trying to kill me.  I keep changing my mind over how I want things to go, and then arguing with myself.  I think that I have like, six versions of it now?  The problem that I backed myself into is a difficult one to explain, because I don't want to give much away.  Let's just say that Kyo is a violent lover and Loki is in a position that makes that impossible to work with.  I refuse to have Kyo drop the bondage and humiliation tactics, because unlike some people, I don't believe that it's a disease that can be cured, merely a taste that is acquired.  Once it's there, it can't be forgotten. 

I'd know.

Moving on, I'm trying to decide if I want to re-release both of my earlier books for free, since I've made virtually nothing off of them when compared to the new one.  Especially Playing with Tigers, since bisexual romance erotica is such a small and specific field to write in.

Anyway, I am going to go and get to work, the clock is ticking and I have a huge amount to get done.

Also, this.

I may not use that for the cover, but if you know what it is, perhaps that's enough to convince people that I am working on it, haha 

Off I go, happy hunting everyone!  Friend/follow me on goodreads, I lounge on there when writing isn't possible.
