I hope you are all safe in this trying time.
I am currently writing during my time in isolation, and I hope I can finish something soon. I’ve had a tough time getting time to write up until now because I am a university lecturer and I’ve just had to switch all my face-to-face courses to online courses over the course of a week. It was not fun, let me tell you.
I have another chapter of Weekend Girl finished. I have only one chapter left to write, and I hope that I can get the last chapter done this weekend. As it is, I’ll soon need beta readers for Weekend Girl. I’m looking for genderfluid and Vancouver BC local LGBTQ peeps as readers, so if you know anyone, please let me know!
I’ve just got a professional beta reader to look at Far Patrol, which I’m really excited about. I also think I know where I will submit this one once it’s revised. This novel has taken me a long time to release to the beta reading world – almost 5 years, in fact. I hope that it goes well.
Once I finish writing Weekend Girl and revising Far Patrol, I will be writing my post-apocalyptic novella Surfacing. It’s been on the back burner for a bit, but I’m also excited about this one.
Anyway, just so you know what to look forward to in the future!
Stay safe, everyone.
I’m just updating everyone on the status of some of my works in progress.
First, Weekend Girl is currently 8 chapters finished and needs two more to be complete. I am really excited about this one because it’s my first full length novel about a genderfluid character. Their name is Ash, and they are a student in Vancouver, Canada. They are 20 years old and just wrapping up their third year at UBC when they meet fellow student Nolan on the bus. It’s fun and light-hearted, and my first try at a contemporary novel. I will be getting it beta’d soon, so I’m very excited about that!
Second, I’m still awaiting feedback on my novel Far Patrol, which is about dragons and politics. Not certain where this one will end up, as it’s not really about romance at all. My dragon character Ignius is ace/aro and hsyr rider Kathely is agender pansexual. It’s a more introspective novel, and is very much fantasy.
Lastly, still on the backburner is my novella about a post-apocalyptic society that lives underground. I hope that this one will be next up on my list to finish after Weekend Girl. My main character is bi, and his love interest is a trans gay man.
Just before I go, I’m going to share some news not related to my writing. I have received and accepted a PhD offer from McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. I will be joining the English and Cultural Studies department there. I’m really excited about this offer and hope to continue writing while I study and teach!
See everyone later!
