Channeling Morpheus comes alive in audio!! *beyond thrilled*


From Jordan Castillo Price:


Now in Audio

Channeling Morpheus
for Scary Mary

Channeling Morpheus 1-5, read by the incomparable Gomez Pugh

Michael is a waif in eyeliner who's determined to wipe vampires off the face of the earth. Wild Bill's got the hots for Michael and will stop at nothing to go home with him.

Forget about moonlit castles and windswept moors. These bad boys haunt all-night diners and cheap motels, cut-rate department stores and long, lonely stretches of the interstate. Ride along with Wild Bill and Michael as the twists and turns of
Channeling Morpheus for Scary Mary unfold in America's heartland.

What listeners are saying: "I wondered if I would find it hard to put Vic out of my mind, with Gomez Pugh also being the narrator. But though I can tell it's the same guy he makes his voice different enough that I don't think of Vic at all." - Becky Black

Me too, Becky! I love how he captures Michael's youth and Bill's jadedness so brilliantly!

It's on the wall! from Jordan Castillo Price

I still have a chart on the inside of my wardrobe door with sticky notes galore, where I planned my epic bodice ripper LOL. Here's Jordan Castillo Price's far more successful use of the technique...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Originally posted by jordan_c_price at It's on the wall!
After many long months of agonizing over my work in progress, I read a bit of advice I'd seen numerous times before, and realized that I hadn't actually been giving myself enough time to THINK. So I changed my daily goal from writing, to thinking a minimum of two hours a day.

It resulted in this:
postit-hall

YAY, I was finally touching story again, and was able to carve off all the deadweight from my manuscript and move ahead with purpose. More importantly, that sick feeling of dread was gone. (Good riddance.)

Weirdly enough, though, I've worked this way before. Here's where I was tearing my hair out in 2009 trying to figure out how to wrap up the Channeling Morpheus series.

And here I am struggling with PsyCop in 2007...

So, I don't get it. Why did I stop this type of planning when I knew it worked?

What the heck, did I somehow not realize that I would just magically know what to type? How can you understand something so basic (writing is more than just typing, it's thinking) and then forget it? Maybe I'd moved to lengthier journaling-type planning and forgot the organizational power of the movable note.

Weird. But hooray. Now, onward.

LIP-LICKING Petit Morts new releases...



*am extremely excited LOL*

The new Petit Morts series is out on Oct 25, and I have TWO stories in it. One written solely by myself, one in conjunction with Jordan Castillo Price.

SEVEN stories in total, from the four authors: Jordan Castillo Price, Sean Kennedy, Josh Lanyon ... and me :).

WATCH THIS SPACE for lots more news of this long-awaited series.


*************


LONDON EYE by Clare London


Oliver's been dumped by his date in the backstreets of London, where his Armani suit and a rich family background don't count for much.
Des is waiting tables to make ends meet, reconciled to the fact that all he attracts are lame ducks and lost causes.
Two different men, two very different worlds.

Then Des’s cheerful generosity meets Oliver’s lovelorn confusion over a cup of coffee and a bag of sinfully good chocolates...Enter Chance, working at the Cafe Mystique under the looming presence of the London Eye, searching as always for The One, matchmaking with his own brand of sensual, sweet and shocking magic.

What follows is a mix of providence, passion and good old British pounds. After all, everyone should give credit where credit’s due.


***********


MEDIA NARANJA (the Other Half) by Clare London and Jordan Castillo Price

Love is not for the faint of heart. Mild-mannered Trevor accompanies his Gran Elsie on holiday at a luxury resort in Majorca, hoping for some rest and relaxation under the dazzling Spanish sun. But they didn’t count on arriving in the middle of Flamenco Week. Instead of massages and siestas, they find noisy builders and tacky theme parties.

Trevor has a choice to make: put up, or shut up—and working up the nerve to complain to the staff, the mysterious Chance and imperturbable Hunter, is far from easy. But the impromptu assertiveness training comes in handy when he catches the eye of the manager’s son, Alejo.

There’s someone for everyone—even Trevor—providing he finds the courage to stand up for what he wants.

Petit Morts : a series by Jordan Castillo Price, Josh Lanyon, Sean Kennedy and Clare London.

A storefront. You've never noticed it before. It's small, unassuming, and yet there's something about it that draws your eye. And the aroma drifting out, rich and dark, so enticing. How could you have overlooked it? It must be new.

So why does it look like it's been there for ages? And the chocolatier behind the counter...certainly you'd remember him.

Unusually chatty post from me ...

I had the loveliest anniversary weekend...

Collapse )

I may keep him on for another 28 years ^____^.




It all makes me very thoughtful about 2011, which is racing on at a cracking pace. Anyone else think it's moving faster than last year, or am I getting old??? (on second thoughts, don't answer that ...)

It's been a hectic year, with work, family and writing. And I'm not always sure what - or whether enough - gets achieved to justify all the stress :).

Collapse )



In writing... Well, where to start? Do visitors to my LJ really want to hear what's going on in my tortured, flaky, tumultuous author's brain?! LOL

I haven't shared a lot of WIP on LJ over the last couple of years. Partly because I'm never happy with it until the last damn minute! but also because I'm paranoid-ish about my ideas appearing somewhere else from another author who writes faster than I do. There you are, honest enough for you?! LOL I'm not talking plagiarism, just being overtaken *sigh*. But I do enjoy posting fiction here for fun, so I may share some more soon.

And Lord knows, I need some support and backside-kicking! I don't know where writing time went this year, but it didn't come calling at my door very often. Excuses, I know. I've been very pleased with my shorter work this year - Just-You Eyes at Dreamspinner Press, and my shorts in both Tea and Crumpet and British Flash.

And exciting news ... one of my stories is joining Jordan Castillo Price's latest Petit Morts series, due out later this year, hopefully Oct.

In LONDON EYE, the mystical chocolatier Chance comes to London with his own special blend of spice, sweetness and sharp shock :). More news on that SOON. I'm an excited mix of proud anticipation and JCP fangirl hysteria :):).

Other publishing news? Some of my shorts are coming up for renewal at various publishers and I'm drawing them back in to re-publish myself. It's only a modest venture, I'm not planing to run my own publisher, even for my own books :). But it's an adventure I'd like to try!

Enough of me for today? Thanks for listening (or skimming over, whatever, it's fine)
