Somniare aude


Hello, and welcome to my progress thread for 2013.

Project: Comfortably Numb
Genre: Erotic GLBT Sci Fi Romance
Blurb: When space racer Esther Hart crashes out of the [race name], she barely escapes with her life. Coming to in the state-of-the-art [Clinic], she discovers that there’s a long road to recovery ahead of her, and that it’s unlikely she’ll ever be fit enough to race again.

Fighting her new limitations and severe depression, Esther finds a friend in therapist Reva Arke, an alien with restorative emphatic powers. Soon this friendship develops beyond the rehabilitation rooms and into something deeper.

But their budding relationship is threatened by the both the Clinic’s strict regulations and Esther’s determination to get back on the circuit regardless to the dangers.


So this is my JulNo project, and it's set to be far more of a challenge than when I first thought of the idea. It's also my first venture outside a het relationship. I'm more concerned about writing depression as a plot point, though.

I'll hopefully remember to keep everyone up-to-date, and might even post a few work-safe excerpts. ;)

What? A thread with Latin AND a Pink Floyd reference in your project title?! I like you!

Good luck with your novel this month! Hyperbole and a Half recently did an excellent post about depression. It really helped put the matter in perspective for me, as someone who's never experienced depression personally.

Ah well - they do say to write what you know... :rolleyes:

It's a hectic week - my eldest son is part of his school's production and my eldest daughter hits 18 on Friday - so I'm not writing as much as I'd like, but whatever.

My space opera in progress tottered over the 50K mark the other day. Been a long time coming, since this was my first [failed] NaNo story, but I got there eventually. Now to write another 45K! O.o Still, if I want to submit to the Big Six, I have to have the big word counts.

In smaller publishing news, I see AllRomance already lists Star Attraction. Here I go again! XD

Opening salvo of 1392 words, over several scenes. The MC's developed a drug addiction I had no idea about until it turned up on the page. Oh, and it ended up being in first person.

Now plotting out a short story that I plan on putting out end on July to celebrate my second publishing anniversary.

Tomorrow sees the release of STAR ATTRACTION.

Busy, busy, busy! XD

Quote:
Observatory tour guide Megan Shaw has always had stars in her eyes, so when she all but runs down the otherworldly Raul, she barely blinks. It doesn’t hurt that Raul is hot – whether in his human form or his natural one – and that there’s an immediate mutual attraction.

But Raul is on the run from his alien overlords and soon Megan finds herself fighting against a foothold situation with nothing more than a couple of cattle prods and Muse for soundtrack.

However Earth is not the only planet at risk and with his species desperate to escape generations of oppression, will Raul’s loyalties shift as easily as his physical appearance?


STAR ATTRACTION is an erotic sci fi romance out now through Carnal Passions and is also available at Amazon.

The Unexpected British Summer has impacted my word count this week - it's too hot to have a failing laptop on my lap!

Also, kinda watching Wimbledon. Go Murray!!!

Bad news: I'm horrendously behind on CN.
Good news: This is mostly down to being away over the weekend and just not having time to write. I attended a GLBT meet for readers and writers, and it was great. Learnt lots, made new friends, got stupidly drunk. All goals met. :D

Still, I've dropped my Camp NaNo target by 15K. I was never going to finish CN this month, as it'll need at least two edits and a beta read. My goal is to have it shiny by the end of September, ready for Riptide's open submissions week. That's still easily within reach, so I'm not bothered about dropping a few K here and there.

Immediate plan is a bacon butty, then diving into writing.
