Beginnings

Well, Hellions, I'm thrilled to say that I've officially kicked off two new writing projects. (Yeah, yeah, with all of my free time.)

Hotter Than Hell, also lovingly known as HB3. This one's still in the Jesseverse, but it stars the incubus Daunuan. No worries -- you'll get to know Daun very, very well in both Hell's Belles and in The Road to Hell. So far, my Crit Partner and my Loving Husband both say they're eagerly awaiting this story -- my CP because she's crushing on Daun, and my LH because he thinks it's going to be a damn good story. And just before, one of my Trusted Beta Readers said that "Daunuan is my new paranormal fiction boyfriend." WOOT!!!

Schmoozing the Almighty. Another paranormal romance/humorous urban fantasy, but not set in the Jesseverse. At least, not in the direct Jesse story arc. Here's the gist: After a spectacularly bad breakup, Lee Segal returns home to Brooklyn to spend Passover with her family. While dusting off Grandma Ellen’s sedar plate, Lee finds a piece of paper nestled in all the wrapping, paper with odd symbols on it. She looks closer, and just as she realizes the symbols are a form of Hebrew, the paper glows, the symbols disappear…and boom, Lee Segal suddenly knows one of the secret Names of the Almighty. With this knowledge, Lee can work miracles: cure the ill, see the future, even create a human-like golem. Sadly, it doesn’t improve her love life: one condition of wielding such power is chastity. It also makes her the target of a group of mystics, who would do anything to possess that Name. With her sidekick golem and the protection of the mercenary Gabriel, Lee must find the Hidden Temple in Sheepshead Bay so that she can get the Name out of her head and safely hidden away—before the mystics find her, and before she does something altogether sinful with Gabriel.

Hooray, new projects!

So who needs to sleep?

Sleep... what the hell (hah!) is that?

I'm actually trying to work out the proper ratio of cups of coffee per hour of sleep lost. It is unfortunately a curve where the further you go on no sleep, the more cups of coffee you require per hour. I am finding that the numbers are taking on expotential terms as I progress through the early morning hours of the equation... that, and my brain now really hurts.

Congrats on the two new projects - HTH and STM. They both sound really amazing. Can't wait to read the excerpts while I'm biding my time for them to be published :D

Well, Jackie, looks like our next mutual site is going to be "Magical Hunks" run by incubi Daun and Bastien. Or maybe they guest star with the minxes for crazy female vs. male perspectives on seduction...oh the hellish hijinks!

Thanks muchly, Brian! And when you figure out the coffee-to-sleep ratio, please let me know!

Ooh, Richelle, we definitely must let the Hellish Hunks get their say once in a while! I can't wait to meet Bastien! I bet he and Daun would get along very, very well.

I love being able to check in on all those creatives in my Internet loop. Can't wait to read BOTH stories!

And thank you, Jackie, for the warm wishes on my blog the other day. It was much appreciated.
