Still no word yet from Crimson Frost Books. With a holiday weekend coming up, I’m not expecting much. It is still my sincere hope that I can get “Embers of Eros” released sometimes this summer. Given the themes of this book, I think it’ll be a great book to read in the summer heat, especially for those lucky enough to take a trip to the beach. It all depends on how much Crimson Frost can do with their current manpower.
In the meantime, I already have another project in the works. I want to take a break from telling longer, more elaborate stories and do a few shorter stories. My hope is that a tighter, more concise plot will allow me to refine a certain set of skills. What kind of skills will this plot require? Well, that’s a tough question to answer.
My new project will combine two of my great loves: football and sexy undertones. It’s true. I love football and I build a big part of my weekends around football from August to February. It’s a very manly, aggressive sport. Those same themes can translate well into a sexier, more intimate situation. But how? Well, that’s what this new project will explore.
I don’t want to get into too many details just yet. I’ll try to throw in a few teasers in the coming months, depending on how much progress I make. But I might try to sell this short story to a few small publishers before I self-publish with Lulu again. I’d like to see if there’s a market for something like this. Football is an easy sell these days. Maybe this story can tap into it. Only time will tell. If I can finish this story while getting “Embers of Eros” published, then this will make for a very productive year.
