Wednesday WiPs

You’ve probably noticed the newest covers on my books section in the side bar here at my blog. 🙂 And it might be all screwed up like it is on my computer screen here at work, but I promise when I was doing it at home, they all lined up perfectly…lol.

So yes, I do have a book coming out from Samhain in April of 2008. It’s called Out of Bounds and is the first in my Love of Sports series. I figured since I haven’t talked much about it, I would post the blurb for you all to read. This one is about a professional basketball player who falls in love and has to make the decision on whether to come out or lie.

Professional basketball player, Kasey Johnson, likes guys, but he keeps those longings out of the public eye. Kasey’s secret is safe until he meets a nightclub owner who ignites a passionate inferno in his body.

Ingram Fletcher owns Liverpool, the most popular gay club in Phoenix. He’s lusted after Kasey since they first met a year ago. Unsure of Kasey’s preferences, Gram has never made a move, but a kiss in a crowded club starts Gram wondering if a relationship would be possible.

After a romantic weekend together, Kasey and Gram realize that what starts as simple lust can blossom into love.

This blurb might change over the course of edits, but at the moment, it’s what I’ve got. Kasey happens to have a twin brother, Garrett, who is an openly gay movie star. I’m working on his story next. He falls for a recently ‘outed’ NASCAR driver. It hasn’t been contracted yet though. So I’ll keep you posted on that one.

On to the word count updates:

Home of his Own: 39,142/50,000 (390 words)

Dreaming of Dragons: 652/50,000 (0 words)

Devil’s Addiction: 30,436/50,000 (0 words)

Where the Devil Dances: 10,629/50,000 (1550 words)

That gives me a total of 1,940 words for the week. Hmm….not great, but I have been working on other stories that I haven’t listed here. Like Garrett’s story, High Line. And a few others. I do have probably about another 1k written in long hand for DoD, just haven’t gotten around to typing it in.

Hope you have a great Wednesday. 🙂 Happy Hump Day.

    As a sports fan, this sounds promising. I love sports movies, and indeed sports books (even better when they’re gay). Hope the writing goes well for you.

    Must be a computer setting, mine are lined up nicely.

    2008! Do you know how far away that is?! I’m happy it’s in the first half of the year.

    Out of Bounds sounds great – love the sports theme.

    Feel good about your word total, you beat me by about 1900! Yea, not much written at all. LOL I did join Allison Kent’s 70 Days of Sweat so I’m hoping I’ll be kick started and finally finish a ms.

    It’s the strangest thing. Must be the setting we have for our screen displays. Oh well. As long as people can figure out the links…lol. It would be neat if I didn’t have the book links with them.

    yeah TA, also from my laptop the covers are all over around…but it’s pretty artistic, isn’t it? Can’t wait for Aspen anthology and also for Samhain release, I remember you posted a little excerpt from it some time ago… elisa

    Hey there Sylvie,

    I’m still waiting to hear about The Vanguard from Liquid Silver. They’ve told me they want it, but I haven’t gotten a contract on that one yet.

    So I’ll have at least three books coming out next year for sure. 🙂 There will be more since I have a ton to finish up and submit places.
