Writing and Submission Update
So I wrote 231K last year, and if you read my New Year's Resolution post, I'm stepping it up to 1k-2k a day for a whopping total of 365k-730K a year! A novel is 80k, so that's a lot of novels in one year.
So far, I'm doing good. I wrote 2553K on Sunday, 2019K Monday and 2102 yesterday.
And I have two tidbits of good news.
Tundra 37 received 4 stars from Romance Times Magazine!!!!
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
RT Rating: four stars
This second in the New Dawn series is a complicated yet fascinating tale, told mainly in flashbacks, of a future where the only chance for survival is to leave Earth. The multiple story threads come together nicely, leaving the reader with a hopeful impression of the future.
One hundred years after leaving Earth bound for Paradise 18, the ship Expedition, guided by twin psychic seers, unexpectedly has a run-in with some comets, forcing a 200-year-early landing on Tundra 37, a planet in the throes of an ice age. Struggling for survival, many of the passengers, including matchmaker Gemme Reiner and Lieutenant Miles Brentwood, experience dreams and hallucinations that may be attributed to a mysterious orb, picked up in the early years of the journey. Now an object has been discovered on this planet that may be connected to the orb. The seers are determined to find it and bring it to the ship, even if this costs the lives of the survivors. (ENTANGLED, Jan., 288 pp., $15.99)

You can preorder it here!!!
It's actually selling pretty well considering it hasn't come out yet, so I'm excited.
The review will be posted in the Feb. issue of RT Magazine, so we'll see what that does for sales.
My short story, The Dolls of Malika Hall, was accepted in this anthology:
By Wicked East Press
This anthology will also be coming out in February. My story is inspired by my trip to Jamaica a few years ago. It's a horror story involving voodoo and ghosts. It's loosely based on a Jamaican legend: The Witch of Rose Hall. (This is the first horror story I've ever sold!!)
That's it for now. Anything exciting happening for you?
