2019 Year of Completions

2018 has been another wild year and I didn't get but two projects completed all year. I have several projects started and my goal for 2019 is to complete them or decide to toss them altogether.

I have been working on the sequel to Suddenly for six years and it hasn't come together yet. If it doesn't happen this year, I may have to let it go. But, we'll see what happens. I have taken down the short story about Jamie and P. J., "It's All New." Based on the survey feedback I got, people would rather I write a whole story than the short ones, so that's going to be one of my project attempts for this coming year.

I will leave this blog up until I finish the book or scrap the project.

I want to thank all the readers and supporters of this story. It has meant a lot to me that you all love the story.

Suddenly is currently on sale for $0.99 so I hope you will take advantage of the discounted price.

Back to Writing Jamie and P. J.'s story

I didn't realize how long it had been since I'd posted on this blog, but I have been pretty busy. I published four stories, including a short version of the new continuing story of Jamie and P. J. Several of you read It's All New: Making New Friends and voted on the characters and the way the story was written. I've decided to write the whole next book from P. J.'s point of view. I've really struggled with putting this story together. It's weird that I've had such a hard time with it, but fans keep asking for the story to continue, so I'm working hard on finishing the book. I really appreciate how much everyone has liked Suddenly and I hope the new book meets all your expectations.

Suddenly No Longer On Amazon Unlimited

My original publisher, Itoh Press went out of business last year. The owner did not take down all the ebook copies of Suddenly and I couldn't find them all, so Amazon is not going to allow me to have any of my books on Kindle Unlimited for the next year. I will be loading them to other venues like Kobo, Barnes and Noble and the like. I've reduced the price of Suddenly from $3.49 to $1.99.

I'm still working on the next story of Jamie and P. J., but there are only so many hours in the day, and I have too many projects going on. :( Please stay tuned for more news to come.

Today is the last day to enter the giveaway for an autographed copy of Suddenly.

I'm giving away 3 print copies of Suddenly to whoever guesses the closest the number I chose a few weeks back. The number is between 100 and 999. Email your guess to by midnight tonight! I will be announcing the winners tomorrow morning.

Due to the overwhelming responses from my survey at the end of It's All New, the next Jamie and P. J. story will be at least 50,000 words long. For those of you who've followed this blog you know I've been working on this on and off ever since Suddenly was originally published. My goal is to have it done by the 1st of April. It will be about the rest of Jamie and P. J.'s first year of college together. Check back for updates of the status of the story.

The Fans Have Spoken

A few months back I published a few chapters of The Circle of Confusion series and put a survey at the end of the book. I wanted to get your feedback about whether you wanted the story in short chapters or a long book, and the long book won. I really appreciate everyone who took the time to take the survey. You input is very important to me.

Since the majority of the people who took the survey said they would rather have a long book than short chapters, that's they way I'm going to continue with the story. I'm working on a different story right now, but The Circle of Confusion is next.

Some of you may be wondering why I've titled this story The Circle of Confusion. Well, to be honest, it worked at the time and I'm not sure I'm going to keep it. But, my original thinking was that the story would deal with all the confusion Jamie and P. J. would face in their new life. Anyone who has moved away from home and started out on their own knows how scary and confusing being faced with real life situations can be. Jamie and P. J. are going to meet new people and have new experiences that will make them question everything.

SPOILER ALERT: Regardless of what I may put them through, I will keep them together. It's my firm believe that LGBT youth need to know that they can meet their soulmate at a young age and be together forever.

Almost ready!

I've finished editing the first episode of The Circle of Confusion: It's All New. I'm asking for a few beta readers on Facebook and working on a survey to go with the story. I'm also working on the cover. If this is your first time visiting here, you can go back to earlier posts and read my beginning efforts of creating this series.

Suddenly Available Again May 31, 2016

It's been a long, but enjoyable, journey re-working Suddenly. I didn't really change anything, just fixed grammatical and formatting errors. I will be officially re-releasing Suddenly on Tuesday, May 31, 2016. That is also my baby girl's birthday. She'll be 27 this year. God, I feel old. ;)

For those of you who haven't had a chance to read Suddenly, I hope you will check it out. For those of you who read it previously, I hope you will take advantage of it being available through Amazon Unlimited and check it out again. I'd love to hear how I did with fixing the problems.

The print version will be available by June 10, 2016 and I will be writing the series, The Circle of Confusion, telling about Jamie and P. J.'s life in college. I've been torn about how to write this series and I will be taking ideas from some of the stories on this blog. If the writing Gods are willing I'm hoping to start out by releasing an episode every two weeks starting on June 10th to coincide with the print release. I'm not going to promise that the episodes will come out every two weeks, at least not this summer. I will have grandkids just about every day so it's going to be a little crazy at my house.

I love hearing from fans and I hope you will write me and let me know what you think about Suddenly and the series, The Circle of Confusion. Write me at I always respond to letters from fans. Peace and love to you all. M. E.
