Cabaret Rollo Rouge continues to look for a home after six months with Carina. Their rejection was very nice, though, along the lines of it not being what they're looking for but being certain another publisher would like it. Testing that theory...
MEANWHILE, I sold another short story for another anthology, and the publisher/editor asked to see more of my work, so I sent them The Lure of Port Stephen. Waiting, naturally. Writing is waiting.
ALSO I am writing an mpreg story that at least attempts to be plausible, because reasons. You all likely know by now how little patience I have for writers who wave their hand and say, "It doesn't have to make sense, IT'S FANTASY!" or worse, "IT'S FICTION!" No, my dears, that's what we call "lazy writing."
I want to mention some works-in-progress, mostly as impetus to finish them -- Fair Hearts, a m/m fairytale story drawing loosely on Snow White, and Morning Star, same only the inspiration is Aladdin. Once I finish Diplomacy Squared, I will be working on these with imaginary deadlines-for-submission, as that seems to be a motivator for me. Let's see how much I can get done before the end of 2016!
