Whew! What's next? Well, again I want to thank the cast, crew, patrons and sponsors of the Plainfield, NJ production of Intimate Chaos the play! As always, it was a big collaborative effort to mount the show and I'm ever grateful to all who help make it come to be. With that being said, I know many of you who do not live in the northeast want to at least get to see the show on DVD. Believe me, I'm working on that. One challenge is getting everyone and everything on the same page at the same time—making sure everything from budget to my desired cast, crew and venue are in sync. So to those who are waiting for that DVD please know that it's at the top of my priority list!
Next up for my stories is another vignette featuring Kenya from Intimate Chaos. This one is entitled Ecstasy, and picks up right where Illusions of Love left off. I just finished the final draft today and expect to send it to my editor by next week. The vignette will be available for sale on June 15, 2010 for $.99 (in ebook format), but I will have an excerpt up much sooner than that!
BOOKS – Yay for books! 🙂 I've been going through something really funny lately with my characters, Melissa (from Tainted Destiny) in particular. To be honest, I've been trying to write her story for almost nine years now. YEP, NINE YEARS! What I thought would become of her since then has evolved quite a bit, but it's still coming to me slowly. I want to get it out though, to share it with you. It is my intention to complete and publish that next and it will be entitled, Until the Day Breaks. This story will go back in time to when she was a little girl living in Louisville, KY and bring us up to where we met her in Tainted Destiny, as a young undergraduate student and beyond. I want to show you who she was, the circumstances in her life that makes her grow into a young woman and a close-up view of her soul as struggles with the complexities of life to find her way. Melissa going to go through a lot, as I'd like to explore emotional abuse and same-sex domestic violence in this book. The story will delve into those issues and show us how anyone can quickly be one step away from hitting rock bottom (emotionally and physically) and what enables them to rebound or be swallowed by life. I'm working on it – so stay tuned!
Also in the back of my mind are Brianna and Pam. 🙂 Many of you want to know what will be come of them and so do I. Funny enough, I even got some questions about Frank and Terrence! I can tell you now that I do NOT know what is going to become of any of them but I DO look forward to discovering that in another book. I feel that there is more story to be told with these characters and I will get around to telling it in the near future.
That's it for now. I'll give another update soon!
