Well, two of them, at least. I’m going to save Michelle’s question on series for tomorrow. Don’t wanna use up all my topics in one day. Anyway, on to the questions!
Whereâ€™s Esmie? I donâ€™t think weâ€™re heard from her in a few weeks. Itâ€™s ok if sheâ€™s on a book tour for her western. Or if Immigration paid her a visit. Or if you have her locked in the cellar. Itâ€™s OK, Shannon, weâ€™re here for you.
Shan: Ezmerelda’s just fine. I’ve been keeping her very busy, but she’ll make an appearance Friday.
Ezmerelda: mmmphhh mmph mmmmmphhhhhhhh
Shan: *readjusts duct tape*. She’s fine. Honest.
And Charli asks:
Personally, Iâ€™d like to know more about the Shannon Stacey plan for world domination! What lines are you targeting (I know you said you love category and want to write it), what single title ideas do you have kicking around, are you going to write a book your sister can readâ€¦Inquiring minds want to know!
The Shannon Stacey plan for world domination keeps getting derailed by the fact I only have one minion, and he’s six and a half.
Oh, you mean writing-wise?
What lines are you targeting (I know you said you love category and want to write it)
I’ve been playing the SSE/HAR/SSE/HAR/SSE/HAR merry-go-round in my head. Then I think about Blaze. Then I think, I wonder if that one idea I had will work for Nocturne. Then I wonder if Nocturne’s doing okay. Then I remember I want to write contemporary romance for them and I’m back on the SSE/HAR/SSE/HAR-go-round. Then I worry about whether my voice is there or if it’s flat. Basically I’m in chickenshit procastination mode and haven’t worked up the courage yet. :hide:
what single title ideas do you have kicking around,
Well, I have a single title contemporary romantic comedy I’m shopping around, although I’m not supposed to use the words “romantic comedy” with most publishers. It’s sitting in a NY slush pile right now, not that I’m dwelling on it. Not at all. Really. It’s only been in the pile for five weeks and four days. I’m also tweaking an entry for the Brava Novella contest. I haven’t worked up the courage to submit to Kate Duffy yet, so the contest makes me feel like I’m working toward my goal of someday working with her. Yes, I’m my own best enabler. I’ve also got a paranormal I decided quite a while back no longer fit with where I wanted to go, and yet it won’t get out of my head. That’s why Nocturne keeps poking it’s nose into my category musings. No no no!
Then there’s Becoming Miss Becky to finish. And DG3.
Hi, my name is Shannon Stacey, and I’m unfocused. Is there a 12-step program for that?
Hey, if there’s a 13-step program for that, I could do TT tomorrow. :lmao:
