Mini-Musing 8/1/16–More Authors Found!

I definitely need to go through my hundreds of books more often.  I found more authors who’s books I either don’t recall reading (probably because I hadn’t) or books where their were sequels that I lost track of.  But you know it’s like finding buried treasure.  Yes, I have THAT MANY books and my TBR pile is growing exponentially.


BTW, I just purchased Sharon Shinn’s, Royal Airs – Second in the Elemental Blessings Series.  Can’t wait for it to arrive! 


So I discovered the original version of Dawn Cook’s – a.k.a. Kim HarrisonFirst Truth.  So I’m relieved to learn you can get the remaining of the series although I’m trying to find the copies with the gorgeous new covers. 


And I can’t believe I found this really old book I bought at a used book store © 1961 called What Happened to Amy.  A mystery thriller by Jane Edwards.  I didn’t want to handle it too much so I placed it in a plastic storage bag.  I actually found it on Amazon and some insane person wants $2300.00 dollars for it.  Listen, I love books but no effing way.  Of course if someone wants to buy my copy for $2300.00…. Winking smile


Hazard’s Price by Robert S. Stone has a sequel but sadly, it appears the author passed away.  So it will continue to grace my shelves.


Animist by Eve Forward.  Not finding anything else about her online.  This may have to go onto my missing authors list.  However, I’m certain I haven’t read this book so I’m putting it on the front of the shelves.


The Sharing Knife Volume One: Beguilement by Lois McMaster Bujold.  And it looks like the rest of the series is available!  So it will go on my wish list.  And I’ll read the first book…first.


So who knows what I will find next clean-up?




Big News! Two Acceptances & Other Nice Things…

It’s been a great month for this erotic fiction author. If you haven’t seen already I got two acceptances, one from Ai Press and the wonderful Sedonia Guillone. They accepted the revamped version of Rain Play. Here’s the coming soon from the Ai Press site. Hope they don’t mind that I nabbed it!

Rain Play
Author: CJ Black
Genre: M/M; Contemporary
Length: Tryst

Zach Wilder has to content himself with watching Mark Davis from a distance. His sexy co-worker is already involved with someone and Zach is no home-wrecker. Mark spends most of his time in whispered conversations with a man on the other end of his cell. Zach is nothing more than a voyeur until a chance encounter brings the two of them together on a rainy night. One session during the storm leads to many others as skin flushed hot by desire is cooled by the torrent. Zach has promised himself he wouldn’t fall but holds on to the hope that Mark will allow him to be his shelter. He’s ready to take a chance on Mark even though he is on the rebound. Unfortunately for the both of them the past has a nasty way of interfering, leaving Zach to wonder if Mark is truly worth the fight.

And now for the second, earlier today, I learned Cobblestone Press and the fabulous Deanna Lee accepted my M/M/M contemporary short story, Diamond in the Rough. As soon as I get more information, I’ll place it right here. This story is also a reimagining if you will.

So that’s two acceptances in one month! Life is good.
On the 14th, I will have a new guest blogger Ms. Bella Marie. So I hope you’ll stop by.

Going strong on Memory in Shadow and another contemporary paranormal which is yet untitled (sigh) and I am close to finishing. So maybe it will be three this month. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
