Wow, my last post was April second.
Since then my second story has been publish with Books to Go Now. The story is called ‘Rebuilding Year’ and it follows a group of Hyena shape shifters as they add to their team. It may become a series or it may not. I enjoy working with the characters in that story because everything is light. Nothing is earth shattering.
I can be funny.
Actually, I’ve discovered I can’t help but be funny. Even when I don’t intend to. I start off writing a serious erotic romance and then one of the characters says that a love potion was produced by Baba Yaga, the conversation ends with someone saying “How does one get out of the eating children business and into the love potion business”
I just can’t help it. I can’t be totally serious, even when I want to be. Maybe that’s why I like shape shifters so much. In myth Tricksters are normally shape shifters. And when things get bad the Trickster is normally the guy who can tell a bad joke and lighten the mood.
On our way to
Boston the other week I regaled my husband with bad jokes about the various provinces of . We were both tired and irritated and were driving 14 hours, up and back, to go to a parade. I work hard at being the responsible one, but I don’t always succeed, and I know it goes against my basic nature. Canada
In my writing I can let that changeable, irresponsible nature take over. Then I can re-enter the world the stable, supportive person I always am.
If my humor makes my stories hard to place in the market? Well, I guess that’s alright.
By the way the parade was totally worth it. And you might be from
