Other stuff:

I'm working on FOXED UP with a goal to have it finished and published in December.  I'm hoping to have the sequel to Forgotten Things ready for January (although a lot depends on variables I'm not always able to control).

I'm also have another shifters and partners story just barely started.  (I have a lot of ideas for that series, lately.)  And there might be more of the ESRB in future, and perhaps a fantastical / historical story of another bent.  It's all a bit uncertain to be honest.

Last month was my lowest word count month so far this year; a lot of things contributed to that.  My hope is that I get a lot of inspiration and have some huge word count days this month, and really catch up with everything I've been wanting to write.

However, I've been learning lately that I really can't force it.  Sometimes, I have to let my muse work at its own pace, however much I'd like to "go faster!"  If I don't listen, there will be a cost somewhere, either in my person health or in the story I'm writing.

This is one reason I haven't written more "baking bears" books recently.  I thought I had some more ideas...but the muse does NOT want to work on that series again.  If it happens, it happens...but I can't force it.

Anyway, that's how things are going with me (related to writing, at least).  Hope you guys are doing OK and getting through this month...

Sweet Scents


Sweet Scents
by Hollis Shiloh
A Sweet Briar Farm story

Jon, 18, is a bunny shifter who's very youthful-looking for his age...and very gay. He's so happy with life on Sweet Briar Farm, now that he's safe and free from bullies.

Fitch, 17, is a skunk shifter who just arrived. Trusting anyone is hard for him, and he throws up a barrier of assumed toughness. He's survived a lot of pain and doesn't want more. But he can't resist Jon's warm friendliness.

The two boys are drawn inexplicably to one another. Will they be friends for life...or more than friends? And what, precisely, does that mean for two boys who'd never been particularly interested in sex?

Sweet Briar Farm is a place for them to heal, to find themselves, and to find each other...whatever that means to the two of them.

A general post of sorts


Hi guys.  This is a sort-of update.  I'm working on a new release, and it should be out within the next day or so.  (It's another bunny shifter book...but a little different.)

In the meantime, here's a picture I took over the summer.  I think it turned out pretty well:


I recently bought a book on identifying trees in my local area, so hopefully I will soon be well-versed in nature!  (Okay, maybe not.)  I also saw a bald eagle eating a dead fish!  Although I didn't get a picture of that (the eagle or the fish).


I'm trying to see if it works for me to be an Amazon Associate and earn money from clicks, so I'll be starting to link my books that way from now on, if it works out for me.  I was too intimidated to try for a long time.

On that crass, commercial note, here are some things I've gotten recently through Amazon, and quite liked:

  (Amazon affiliated links)


 
(an interesting movie)


(audiobook)


(3D wall stickers--very cute but don't stay up very well!)


(I love this!  I feel OK on it, when I mostly couldn't drink coffee at all for years!)



(These kitty sticky notes are a lot more use than you'd think!)

And of course, last but not least, for making healthier cocoa...and you know I need my cocoa!!!  (I still maintain it helps my brainpower, and believe me, I need all I can get!)  ;-)





Well, there are actually a lot of stressful things going on in my life right now, but I wanted to focus on some upbeat stuff, as well as trying out these affiliate links things.  

I'll be posting the new book's details soon.  In the meantime, here are some other people's books I've enjoyed a lot recently.  (Links go to Goodreads.)







...and, well, a lot more, if I'm honest.  (I read a lot of books!)

Forgotten Things


Forgotten Things
(Men of Magic #1)
by Hollis Shiloh

Magic takes a toll. It shortens lives, damages people, and lets magicians be used as weapons in a war. 

Jocelyn is one magician who survived that bad time and still works for the magical ministry — or rather, overworks for them. To all appearances, he's pulled together, competent, and functional. Although he has bad memories and nightmares, he manages. But he would like more from life: to find a man he can love. 

A forgotten file tells of several magicians who were put in a mental hospital after the war. Finding no other records on the subject, Jocelyn must take a trip to the sanatorium to sort things out. 

One damaged magician is still there after all these years: a handsome, sweet man with missing memories, a shy, gentle nature, and a great love of drawing. 

And the moment he meets Ellis, Jocelyn knows: This is him. He's the one. Can two damaged men help each other heal, survive all dangers, and find true love?

KNOW



KNOW
by Hollis Shiloh
Hugh and Jem work together as a team for the ESRB. Hugh's just a regular ex-cop, but Jem always knows the odds — of anything — and he's always right. It certainly hasn't made his life any easier.
Working for the ESRB has its challenges, such as when trying to track down Martin, a powerful empath who doesn't want to be found. Martin also happens to be the one person who might just make Hugh and Jem face the suppressed attraction between them.
Knowing the odds can't always protect two men from danger, though — and their fledgling relationship will be soon put to a terrible test.
