I do believe I will finish this story!

Updates are comingFeeling like I can conquer! I’ve added another chapter to The Price of Living! It is called Tango Through Time and it was almost over 13,000 words before I cut it in half for not-killing-my-readers reasons.

My friends and family were, thankfully, very understanding of my absence while I spent all my free time tapping away at the keys. It is catharsis when I need it most, and this summer hasn’t been the easiest.

This does mean chapter 26 is nearly finished as well, which is fantastic since I lost steam (nearly gave up) and wasn’t sure I could recover. The end was written ages ago, so I’m almost finished!

Got some time in to do a bit of artwork too, which is always brilliant since work-artwork is the opposite of fun and brilliant. It’s eeeevil. It’s anti-fun and mindless, soul-sucking monotony. I often try to sneak in a Tardis here and there, like a hidden Mickey, only less hidden and more front and center, but my conscience never lets me keep it in. Damn copyrights. Anyway, nothing big, just a picture to go with the chapter, but it was fun:

I am very pleased to be updating again, to say the least! I owe it all to your encouragement!! Thank you!!

If you are reading my silly, timey-wimey bit of madness, I sincerely hope you enjoy it! If not, I sincerely hope you enjoy your week!

…Not that you shouldn’t enjoy your week if you are reading it…

…So… everyone, enjoy your week!

Right, shutting it.

New Blood Author Recs

9737657454546bcd18f6e12146fa4d52

In order to facilitate some nominations and exposure for new authors, I’m putting out a list of new authors I highly enjoy. It can be really hard for me to give new authors a shot because, usually once I’ve started ready anything, I’ve got a compulsion to see it through to the end, so it can be daunting if I’m unsure of the quality of the writer’s work (this goes for professional writers too – and actually, they’re a bigger gamble IMHO.) It’s really easy to stick with my go-tos for stories that I know will satisfy and bring me joy. Still, I’m usually so happy I took the plunge when I come across a new author’s story and so I’m sharing some that I’ve enjoyed. If we all put a few out there, it’ll give lots of exposure and encouragement to new blood, and hopefully, they’ll keep crafting works about our favourite vampires for us readers for years to come!

Anyway, enough chatter from me. These are in no particular order and they are not all complete, you might even have read all of them, but in case you haven’t, let’s encourage them to see them to completion and give us more:

I know there are so many not listed here and no slight is intended to anyone. In fact, I’d love it if you’d take my challenge and post a new author rec list of your own and include those I missed. Let’s get this snowballing into a love and blood fest and support and encourage as many as we can!!

Because… you know… this:

And the more we have to read, the better my fantasies get.
