Expanding My Horizons

I've decided to take a step out of my usual routine and challenge myself with a couple more novellas. Several publishers have put out open calls in the past weeks, looking for novellas to be part of themed collections. I enjoyed the one I did for my publisher, Noble Romance Publishing, so I'm feeling inspired to try again and submit to these other publishers, just to see how I go.
So I'm off to start on these stories now, both of which will be different types of sci-fi romance. Since that genre seems to be my strength at the moment, I'm going to stick with it and see what I come up with.

Getting Around

Just a quick post to say I'm over at the Dark Side DownUnder blog today and I've got 2 books to give away. Head across and leave a comment if you want to win!
Earlier in the week I also visited the Noble Romance Authors blog. No giveaways there, but some tips on how to run screaming in the face of cliches and boring writing.
November is almost here, don't forget to stay tuned for the Noble Romance Authors Timeless Desire blog tour, where prizes being given out include a Kindle! Lots of excitement happening all 'round.

All Quiet on the Writing Front

I'm enjoying a bit of a lull at the moment. I've finished all the edits for Singularity (lucky, since its coming out next week!), completed initial revision on Heart of the Warlord Version 2.0 before I re-submit to my editor, and am now going to take a breath before I plunge back into writing the fourth Sanctuary book, Drayke and Leandra's story -- Sinner.
I have a couple of submissions out with agents and other publishing houses, I guess you could say I've always got some irons in the fire. Although, I don't have as many out there as I might normally would. Things have been quiet in terms of these submissions and in the coming weeks, the general length of time will be up on waiting, so I'll be sending out some follow up emails if I haven't heard anything.
In non-writing related matters, I've just finished watching season one of Game of Thrones. I really enjoyed it and am now twiddling my thumbs until season two starts, much like I'm waiting for season five of True Blood (mmm... Eric...). Luckily I have Supernatural, Vampire Diaries and my new obsession with Terra Nova to keep me entertained in the meantime. Are we sensing a theme here? No boring old cop shows for me. And now I will drift of to watch one of the aforementioned TV shows to give my brain a rest.
