Purgatory, the Final

heartofatlantis1mThe fourth and final book in the Purgatory, Inc. collection is out today! Remember these are Paranormal Erotic Romances so please keep that in mind.

Heart of Atlantis by Deidre Meyrick features a cursed merman and a treasure hunter. Sounds delicious, right? Here’s the blurble:

Marin was a cursed merman. Where he once walked the streets of Atlantis—where he found his true love—he now swam, alone. Until he was offered a way out: out of his curse and into the heart of another. But would he be able to love another as he did his true love?

Marley was a loner, a treasure hunter with wild theories about Atlantis who fantasized about mermen. He’d always felt a little out of place, always searching for something, and wanting nothing more than to belong to someone completely.

Between them lay several lifetimes and a wicked sorceress bent on possession. Is a soul deep connection enough to bring them together and to break a curse that was meant to never be broken?

A bit about Deidre (this is her first book release so why not stop by her Facebook or Twitter to say hello!) :

Deidre Meyrick is a lover of happy endings, and believes in taking advantage of the good in any moment. She’s a glass half full kind of optimist with a dash of realism and hedonism thrown in, and maybe a splash of rum for good measure. We only live once, right? She’s lived in several states but calls the Florida coast home, where on any given day you may find her sitting on the beach with her toes in the sand and a notebook in her hand.

Holy Crap, I’m Going To Be A Full Time Writer

I found out just last week that I’ll be transitioning to full time writing a year sooner than I expected. This is both really great and really scary news for me. It means I finally have a fire under my butt to get me to treat writing as a real career rather than just something fun that I do. It also means that holy shit I need to figure out how to make writing work as a real career.

There are hurdles to overcome, certainly, but most of all I need to figure out how to be patient with the road ahead. I know me. After a few months have gone by and I still haven’t made anywhere near my current salary, I’m going to want to give up on this crazy dream that I have. I can’t let myself do that.

My goal is easy enough to figure out, laughable though it seems now: make as much money writing as my current salary. Now I just have to figure out how to make that goal happen in real life. To start with, I’ve divided the top-level goal into subsections for all the different ways I can make that money: fiction, non-fiction, copy-writing, and copy-editing. Under each of these sections I have a list of possible prospects, stories I’ve already written, or stories floating around in my head that I can finish quickly and get into the rejection rodeo. I also have a list of things I can do to generally make my writing better or help my career that don’t directly produce any money, but will eventually pay dividends.

Part of that ‘other’ list involves redesigning this website to be a little more professional and less bloggy. That change will happen some time in the next few weeks, so don’t be surprised if something stops working in that time frame. Hopefully there will be very little interruption and all you’ll notice is the new and beautiful website on the other end.

Along with that I’m going to be updating much more often. Yes, I know I’ve said that before, but this time I really mean it. More random rants, more writing stuff, more speculative media reviews, more lamentations about characters that don’t want to cooperate with me, just more of everything really. I haven’t decided yet exactly what the new posting interval will be, but I’ll nail it down in the next couple of weeks.

So, exciting times are ahead! If my cross country move doesn’t generate a nervous breakdown, this whole full-time writing thing probably will. Stay tuned to find out!

Purgatory the Third

tumblr_nimzgl7Wp31u5qtouo2_500

The third book in the Purgatory, Inc. series is out! Keep in mind all four books in this series are Paranormal Erotic Romances.

Writing Your Own Ransom Note by Sam Schooler features a multiracial, bisexual hero and a love interest hellhound who likes McDonald’s and skinny jeans. I’m not sure what else I could tell you that would make you want to read more than that.

A little bit about Sam:

Sam Schooler is an Ohioan university student studying journalism with a minor in American Sign Language and a specialization in African American studies. She is both queer and genderqueer, and she has found a home in writing trope-themed New Adult stories about people of all genders and orientations. She has a wicked and extremely noticeable soft spot for werewolves. After graduation, she intends to flee to Canada to join her fiancée Alex and escape the customs regulations that keep her separated from her truest love: Kinder Eggs. Jeremy Renner played her in a movie once.

Here’s the blurb:

Jazz Chaillet is your average college student: caffeinating his way through his tough chemistry program, working as many hours as he can at his bakery job to offset crushing student loans…and being hunted by a hellhound.

According to the hellhound, Pyxis, tampering with dark magic has Jazz’s soul in a state of swift decay. The only problem? Jazz’s studying regimen doesn’t include witchcraft. In order to sniff out the real witch, Pyxis and Jazz will have to intimately connect to one another—in soul and body.

Inspiration for Hire

I’m thrilled to announce that Book 2 in the Purgatory Inc collection releases today! All four of these books are Paranormal Erotic Romances.

Inspiration for Hire is my story around the purgatory theme and features a musician, a jinni, and a muse in a strange triangle of desire.

Here’s the blurb:IFH Small Cover

Ramón Santos is a musician who hasn’t written a decent song in years. He owes one more album on his contract and if he misses his date his career might as well be over. Luckily, he knows someone who can help, or rather something.

Zuhal is a magical being who sells inspiration, and has helped Ramón find his groove in the past, but there’s always a price to be paid. Ramón might just get the music he needs, if he can survive the encounter.

Month of Letters

LetterMo2014squareHello friends!

I’m doing a challenge in the month of February to mail an item every day the mail goes out. This made me realize I do not have nearly enough people whose addresses I know to fulfill this solemn responsibility. If you have a mailbox and you would like me to send some sort of paper product to you: please fill out this form.

I promise not to use these addresses for anything more nefarious than sending mail which hopefully will make you smile. And who knows, you might even get mail from some exotic location (like Wisconsin!) along my route as I drive across the country at the end of the month.

Edited to add my month of letters profile: http://lettermo.com/members/coral/

Hearts and puppies,
