Well, chances are fairly high that Hitting it Big will be pushed back to an August release. I don't know for sure yet the day in August so for now I'll leave it with August 2011.
More probably I'll have a different release in July, though. I mentioned earlier working on something I thought I wasn't going to have to work on, but I now am. I changed the story though. I decided to start something entirely new rather than re-work a story I had little enthusiasm for.
I had signed up many months ago for A Ghostly Affair pax coming from Amber Quill. I had planned to rework a m/f ghost story I was writing a million years ago but soon realized it wasn't really my thing anymore. I had started it years and years ago and I just didn't care even changing the girl Haley into the boy Harry. Thinking myself clever, I quietly deleted myself from our Pax tracking system at Amber Quill, but I forgot to mention it to the editorial director (oops), who was still expecting my Ghost story (as were my fellow AQ authors). Since I had already backed out of the Vacation story, I knew I couldn't back out of this one as well.
I created a new ghost story called, Lost Between, and so far I am loving it. Basically one character, Aaron, was murdered five years ago, and in order for him to be at peace, the main characters, Curtis and Robbie need to put the pieces together to find out what happened to Aaron. Robbie was Aaron's boyfriend at the time of his death. It won't be scary and there won't be any graphic murder details for those of you who are squeamish about that sort of thing, but it will be all rather sad and tragic, but will end good.
There are actually six authors signed up for the pax and only five stories make it into it so it's very possible Lost Between will be a separate story from the pax but either way it will be released. If things change around, I'll report here.
So that's the latest.
