(It was tempting to call this post “Coitus Interruptus” but the spam would have been unbelievable.)
What happened? I disappeared – and it was all Rex’s fault. I had a plan, nicely charted out, for the story of the Plume. Everything was moving along beautifully, until Rex suddenly insisted that the story be different. He wasn’t going to cooperate with my telling the story my way, and I wasn’t sure I could tell it his way.
I also was uncertain whether SUBMISSION and SURRENDER would need to be modified to accommodate Rex’s perspective. There was no point in more people reading those stories until I was sure.
It is very strange to talk about a fictional character that I have created myself as if he were a real person, but now I understand why writers do this. Rex is opinionated. And persuasive. I guess that’s what makes him so interesting to me.
The point is that now I have a new plan and a new outline, and a way to make both Rex and I happy.
I’m also going to modify my publication schedule a bit, to stay a few steps ahead of this boy and ensure this doesn’t happen again.
My apologies to all of you for disappearing into the ether.
Look for SUBMISSION and SURRENDER to return to availability shortly, and SEDUCTION by mid-January.
Happy holidays everyone! Mine will be happier now that Rex and I have found a middle ground.
