So, it’s the end of 2009 and what have I done. Well, I had three books out this year: Pussycat Death Squad, Morning Star and Santa Baby. Morning Star and Santa Baby did very well, Pussycat not so well. Apparently people don’t want to read love stories featuring Muslim women. I had a sequel planned for that book, and I’ll probably do it, but I’m in no rush.
Next up is Given, which is a multi-cultural, paranormal, historical, and its sequel Taken. Given is coming out in February, we’re not sure about Taken yet. Also coming out in February is my story FlyBoy which is part of Parker’s What White Boyz Fight For anthology.
I’ve already submitted my non-fiction book on the Free Lessons to several publishers and agents. I haven’t heard back from anyone yet, and I’m thinking I probably won’t. Ideally I’ll have time to write Dark Star this year, and maybe submit it to a few publishers and agents. But I also need to be writing shorter stories to keep my e-book backlist up. I’ve never written two books at the same time, so it’ll be interesting.
I’ve got an idea for a sequel to Santa Baby, which features Gabriel, the trumpet player at Pink. He just happens to be an archangel and doesn’t know it, but an end-of-days cult does know and they’re hunting him down. I also have a book I’m calling Shimmer which is sort of a Virginia Dareish space opera. It’s about a girl who is left behind when her parents fail to colonize Earth. Now they’re back and are looking for her. There’s only one problem, she has no idea that she’s not human.

I love the sound of the sequel to Santa Baby. It sounds very cool.
I LOVE Pussycat Death Squad, Mrs Roz!!!. Please hurry up and do the sequel. I swear that in the USofdumb people show their true narrow minded natures. That book was HOT and to tell the truth, preferred it more than Morning Star and Santa Baby. It seems like a big dick, vampire/werewolf is more readable for the US public………..
I’m glad to hear someone liked it. The sales were dismal. I think it hurt my feelings because I love that story so much. I will do the sequel, but given the poor sales I’m not sure my publisher will publish it. We’ll see. Thanks.
I just finished Morning Star after not being able to put it down all day. You had me sneaking peeks during work! It was lovely, the characters were fleshed out and behaved reasonably given the emotional boulders thrown in their directions. Yours is one of the best LooseId books I’ve read yet.
I read your post today about giving up writing, and while I can in no way tell you what you should do, I feel compelled to say that your writing has been truly enjoyed.
Peace and blessings in your New Year.
