A Little Rick And Belle

I wrote a free read yesterday about Rick and Belle called Little Red. It will be available some time in October, just in time for Halloween! Once I have more deets I'll make sure to post them here. It's a 4k short story where Belle is her usual naughty self and Rick is loving every minute of it.

Today I'm working a little bit on a quick Valentine's day short story that I'm hoping to have done in about two weeks. The working title is Ghost of the Past, but odds are good it will get changed before the story is finished. I'm also working on Bear Necessities, but I've hit a point where I'm thinking, "Now what?" Don't worry, while I'm writing about the candy maker and how he stupidly lost his true love, I'm wondering how to introduce the next step in Bunny and Tabby's relationship. I might work again on that tomorrow, but the Valentine's short has a deadline and Bunny doesn't.

I've been assigned a new editor at Samhain, the lovely Laurie! (Heh. I've been dying to type that for some reason.) We've chatted over email a couple of times and I'm looking forward to working with her in the future. You can find some of the authors and books she's edited here.

I should start seeing edits soon on Shadow of the Wolf. I've been assigned an editor, Devin, who has also contacted me (I've had a lot of editor contact lately. I've started noticing every single adverb I type. I think they're rubbing off on me.) I've only spoken to her once but she sounds really nice. You can find some of the authors and books Devin has edited here.
