I lack patience

I can plod along for endless days, seemingly accomplishing nothing, but when I want something done I want it done immediately. I guess that is why indie publishing appeals to me so much – I write the book, edit the ever-loving crap out of it, and then BAM! I can upload it to amazon and it’s published.  It’s available within twenty four hours (usually closer to twelve) and I am gratified – it is done in a timely fashion and there is no waiting around. Having attempted to go the traditional route, I found the waiting to be tedious and I did not submit as many stories as I should have and I wasn’t nearly as diligent in sending out queries. Without that motivation of getting published, I wrote less frequently and it became a never ending circle of procrastination. With nearly instant indie publishing, I have been writing so much more because I get to see the finished product immediately instead of hoping to see something within two YEARS – and that is only if the publisher is will to take a chance on an unknown, un-agented author. Now, if I decide I want to try the traditional publishing route again, I will have something more tangible to show them… For now, I am enjoying the indie side of things because in addition to wanting something done quickly, I tend to be a little bit of a control freak – at least in certain areas that I can control, since the world is chaotic and I need at least the illusion of control if nothing else.


Siren Song blurb

A wolf

For eighteen years Duncan Tremain has been able to control his wolf, only letting the beast out to play when the moon is full. This unyielding discipline has given him the ability to conquer whatever hardship should come his way; until Lexi Darling appears in his life. With her joie de vivre and innate sensuality, he is enchanted from the start but the more time he spends in her company the more he can feel his control slipping and the chains that bind the wolf breaking. Determined to keep her safe, he desperately tries to keep his distance, which is a challenge since he is her new boss and Lexi is persistent.

A Siren

A virgin in a temptress’s body, Lexi wants Duncan the first moment she lays eyes on him. Just as Duncan is determined to keep his distance, Lexi is determined to break down his defenses and waltz with him in the moonlight. She pursues him relentlessly, accidentally using her newly discovered Siren gifts to lure him to his downfall.

A love that has other plans

Giving in to temptation has never been so wonderful even as both have their reasons to make sure the relationship doesn’t get too deep. But the wolf knows what he wants and he wants the Siren.

Siren Song inner image

As much as I would love a real art program for the computer I fear I would never get any work done if I had one. This was done using open source clip art and the basic paint program that comes with the computer. I just thought I would share – I am very happy with how the wolf turned out. The image will be used inside the book at the start of chapters as well as on the spine (where the moon is a pale yellow)
