Insert Creative Title for Post Here -

Update on all of my current work -

SMD Series -
Swordmaster Dasan Part 2 is finally at Amazon, I apologize for the wait.  Sadly I’m running into a minor problem on one of the sites that I use regarding the distribution of SMD2 which is holding up what I wanted to do with it, namely offer that one for free as well…  Thank you for the reviews and ratings, I’m glad that everyone is enjoying it!

Swordmaster Dasan Part 3
I wrote roughly three times as much on this as I did on the first SMD, and after I took a break and went back to it I realized that I had;
a)      rambled
b)      not put enough sex in it to call it erotica, and finally
c)      written it like a two finger chimpanzee with serious attention problems (possibly a sleep disorder as well). 
I’m debating the best course of action for book 3, because I sort of want to use every opportunity in the Playing with Tigers timeline to add Kyo, but then it gets aggravating.  I can’t say why, because that would spoil the books, but trust me, it’s enough to make me pull my hair out and swear religiously.  Not that I don’t tear my hair out and swear every morning anyway until enough coffee has been consumed. 

Playing with Tigers –
I have done some work on the third book, and I know the direction that I want to write in.  The problem is that I haven’t had the time.  (see the new book at the bottom of the page.)  The Playing with Tigers books need to be packed with erotica, adventure, tension and drama, and I’ve made the habit of writing them moderately long, which means that they require my full attention when I’m writing them.  I haven’t had the chance to do that yet. 

In which we meet Duncan; professional nobody who presents himself to the public as a scowling, smoky pile of contempt.  Against his will, he meets Sam; a less than professional coal miner who inspires the worst in men.  Together they take on one malicious train and a most insidious reanimator, and along the way Duncan learns a few things that he’d previously forgotten. 

That is not the official blurb, but it’s probably going to be moderately close to that when I’m finished with it.  This book is large, by which I mean that it’s the size of all of my previous works combined.  Well, the two Playing with Tigers books and then The Cat & the Crow, I think would be pretty close.  I was writing last year, I was just writing on one new book because I was having a hell of a time and I was having fun with the new setting and challenges that Duncan brought with him.  I made the character a hot mess because I was bored, I think the book is better for it.  I’m deciding if I’m done with it or not.  After that, I can give a release date. 

Wish me luck and coffee everyone, I will most certainly need it.
