Not the greatest day

Friday, December 1st, 2017

This morning I had to go to the hospital to have a “suspicious tumor” surgically removed. I find out on the 15th if it’s cancer.

I found out tonight that my main publisher Loose Id is closing. That happens in May. You can read more about it here.

I’m…tired. So I haven’t decided yet what I’m going to do. All but one of my currently in-print books are with LI. I could resubmit elsewhere, but LI was rock solid and now they’re shutting their doors. I could self-publish, but I’ve done that twice and hated it both times. I could, well, stop.

I don’t know.

And come to think of it, how screwed up am I to be more upset that my publisher is closing than at the idea I might have cancer?

Maybe I need to step back and get my priorities in line.

Yes!

I officially have a short story coming out this summer! Just signed the contract  with Loose Id

{Dances awkwardly but happily}

If you knew me in 2006 you might have read the original version of this story. Back then it was called True, and it was published for less than 3 weeks before the publisher folded. My current working title for the new edition is tentatively called Tales of the Novahn: Ethan. Working on the sequel now, which is a full-length novel, and hopefully that’ll be out later this year.

Holy crap it feels good to be writing again.

Are you excited? I’m excited.

Unexpected praise for a homeless book.

I was Googling myself earlier (gaw, that sounds dirty, doesn’t it? I was fully dressed, I swear), and stumbled across a review for True that came out just before Twisted Shift closed. It got 4.5 stars from Ecataromance: Sensual. So bittersweet.

Elise Lyn said I had a “fertile imagination.” Heh, more dirty thoughts. I must be in a mood tonight.

She also had this to say:

Short and Sweet but quite complete, Rowan McBride’s True will leave you satisfied and yet looking for more stories of the Novahn.

You can’t ask for more than that. Except, maybe, a publisher…

I think I’m going to view the shot glass as half full on this one.

"True" gets five out of five hearts!

Tales of the Novahn:  True

True has been read by Book Reviews by Crystal! Here’s a bit of what she had to say:

I think Rowan wrote this story masterfully! I have honestly never read Gay Erotic Romance and let me say this story was HOT!

Having True be someone’s first foray into M/M fiction is very, very cool. But I gotta tell ya, I am so glad that it was a good experience. Being a first anything is daunting!
