Though I was beginning to wonder. Ain’t strep throat grand?

So I’ve been under the weather for about a week now trying to get over this stuff. And in the meantime, my brain has been working overtime on a project I had on a back burner from a couple years ago, to write sometime in the future. After I get through the backlog of other ideas I already have started.

But what do you do when your brain won’t shut off, especially in your sleep?

The only thing I’ve found that works is to at least write that one scene, which keeps playing out in your head, where you can deal with it later. When you’re ready to work with it.With a little luck.

Not that it’s a bad story line, or that it’s completely different from what I’d had in mind when I originally had the idea. It’s that I have so many things partway done at the moment. And I’d promised myself, and my editor, that I would finish up all these stories so we could think about getting them ready to publish before I started anything else.

Right.

So what else do I have to finish?

From Esperance, I need to brush up the next in the series, a story called Talents. After that I have another story written and waiting to be edited–Ben of Blackstone’s Forge. And then there is an idea which is partly written called Gregor Thayne, which is not only a story inset into the series, but furthers the overall plot of the series.

From Gambler’s Folly, there are two stories written and waiting to be edited, but they need to sit and rest for a while before I can have a fresh look at them. One is Old Flame, and the other is Scotch and Soulmates. I also have at least two other ideas for stories in this series.

The others are from Sultonna Nadine. There is Lady Calloway, which is nearly finished, but not quite. It is set in an alternate timeline of Victorian England.

Protector of the Red Dragon involves time travel from modern day America back to sixteenth century England and forward again in time to our future. There are paintings which act as portals, magic swords, and a host of tricky situations.

And of course there is Whiskey Jug Genie, about our herbalist from London who accidentally ends up with a redneck genie and the host of problems he brings with him.

And let’s not forget Mistaken Identity and Krista, who is mistaken for something she’s not, and then becomes central to a plan to aid two worlds–both hers and her captor’s.

This is not counting the ideas which are simply ideas of a few paragraphs, like Anya and the Mage; The Dane; two or three other ideas from Gambler’s Folly; a story set on a world of shifters, featuring dragons; The Travellers, following our couple through several lifetimes until they can fulfill their destiny; Sons of Macadam, featuring siblings scattered across the US to Scotland. There’s The Mercenary, Philippe and Mireille, and several others all waiting in line for their turn.

And then there are the two non-fiction books I have started–one on my life since diabetes. The other a lighthearted book concerning the family ghosts.

So why did Tank and Rogue decide it’s their turn now?

Who knows?

They are going to be a lively bunch, I can tell.

Anyway, I’ve got to get over the last of this strep throat. I have too much to do.

In the meantime, go on over and check out what I have already putlished, get caught up on your favorite series, see what Sultonna is up to, and I’ll let you know when there is a new release.

I’m also on Goodreads, so catch up with me there as well.
