I'm still editing Fortuna.
One day I'll write a book that involves two characters falling in love with each other and that's it. Fortuna is not that book. Everything is hopelessly complicated and there are rather a lot of characters even by my standards. Nothing is simple. One reviewer recently remarked that my books read like regency soap operas, and I can see what prompted that opinion - everyone has their own agenda.
Anyway, this isn't really about Fortuna, which has the reached the point where I think it's complete and utter carp. This is about a nice bit of spooky fun.
Despite the numerous projects I have sitting awaiting my attention, I've decided that the next thing I write is going to be purely for my entertainment. I'm not going to write it with a view to publication, but to amuse myself, and remind myself why I love writing.
It's about two men spending the night together in a haunted building as a dare, and probably involves a hell of a lot of m/m sex (leastways as much as you can reasonably squeeze into something intended as a 20K novella).

Currently reading: I'm STILL waiting for something to hook me! Haven't had much luck with the ol' book choices recently. I want something that drags me into its world and the lives of the characters, takes me on an emotional rollercoaster and leaves me gasping for more. Recommendations welcome. NB: I'm very difficult to please.
