2012: A Writer's To Do List

So, I thought I might give you a quick bullet list of the work I have had published, will have published, or am working on this year. In all honesty, this list is more for me than you. I'm very list oriented.

1. Galley Proof, from Dreamspinner Press. My comedy/memoir-lite novel about a writer named Logan Brandish and his search for love, an editor, and himself. I've received some bitter criticisms for this book, but it's one of my personal favorites.

2. "She's Come Undone", from Untreed Reads. A short story about a former school teacher on the edge - she's looked at as a town joke and gets very little help raising her handicapped daughter - and how she finally throws down.

3. "Miss Locks", from Untreed Reads. A horror short about a woman who finds herself standing outside her home, but cannot remember how she got there. When she goes back inside, however, something terrible awaits. This is actually based on a...feeling I had when I was very sick a couple of years ago.

4. "Roids, Rumps, & Revenge", from Seventh Window. Maybe the last erotic story I'll ever write...and it's filthy! About a cocky football coach at a small college and his plan to keep his players winning. Cover by Absolutbleu.


5. SuburbaNights, from Dreamspinner Press. To be released on July 11th, the third book in my Jasper Lane series might be the strangest. This contains one of my most favoritest Jasper Lane scenes ever. And Nanna Hench is back causing trouble.



6. Simple Men translations, from Dreamspinner Press. I've learned that the Spanish and Italian versions are soon to be released. The German version is being worked on. I still can't believe I'm going global!

7. Galley Proof translations, from Dreamspinner Press. The Italian version is ready, and the Spanish version is being translated.

8. Woke Up in a Strange Place audio book, from Dreamspinner Press. My friend Charlie David (Dante's Cove, Ugly Betty) - who did the audio book for Simple Men - is in the midst of recording this afterlife fantasy (and Gaybie award-winner).

9. Bubbles n Gordy, from Class Comics. My erotic comic with artist Absolutbleu and another writer (who shall be named later) about two dumb-as-blocks, hot-as-hell college muscle studs who fight evil on the campus of Pro State University. This is still being worked on, so I'm thinking it won't be out until 2013.

10. Three manuscripts I have with publishers: The Mingled Destinies of Crocodiles & Men (spec fic); The Rest Is Illusion (for possible reprint); and The Rascal (horror).

11. What am I writing now? Thanks for asking! I'm writing a multi-layered speculative fiction piece that seems to want to go on and on. New characters keep coming in quite unexpectedly. The title: Terms We Have For Dreaming.

  1. I AM SO INSPIRED BY YOU. AND IF I MAY SAY ONE THING WITHOUT BEING CREEPY, I LIKE THAT YOU DONT LOOK LIKE WHAT A PERSON WOULD THINK AN AUTHOR LIKE YOURSELF WOULD. YOU LOOK YOUNG, HANDSOME, AND FRESH. I REALLY LIKE THAT. IT DOESN'T MAKE ME WONDER HOW YOU COME UP WITH YOUR STORIES OR WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON IN YOUR HOUSE. I LOOK AT YOU AND SEE SOMEONE THAT CAN TELL A GREAT STORY BC HE IS LIVING AN ACTIVE REAL LIFE.

  3. Galley Proof remains among the best works I've read in a long, long time. You may be really proud of that one - though all of your stuff is really fine (and Jasper Lane stories are amazing!).
