The perils of writing part-time

When I first started in this business, I was in a different job, one that I’d been in for fifteen years and that no longer required much brain capacity from me. That was precisely why I turned to writing in earnest (I’d dabbled on and off for many years). Five years later, I’m still working full-time but in a new job where I’m more mentally challenged and finding that right balance is becoming tougher.

Although I’m almost always making notes throughout the week, the bulk of my actual writing is done on weekends, after errands, visiting with my parents or house work/projects. Occasionally I’ll go out and have fun with friends, but I often feel guilty for not using that time to write. Time management can be a major challenge, as well as the feeling of never getting anything done, but at the end of the day, I know the full-time writer gig just isn’t for me.

The good things about being part-time writer are:

  1. I know where my next paycheque is coming from, which results in less pressure to deliver and more freedom in writing what I want. I’m a slow writer as it is, so I could never turn out enough books to support myself.
  2. It keeps me from becoming too self-involved and fixated on my writing. I have a tendency to become obsessive. When I have a bad review, or sales don’t go well, or I’m full of self-doubt, I can more easily put it aside because I have other things to focus on.

The downside of writing part-time is that I lose momentum and name recognition since it can be up to a year between new releases. I have to essentially re-introduce myself with each new book. I can also often be too tired or computer fatigued at the end of the day to write or spend much time on social media, and it’s easy to make excuses. I’m also probably not as engaged in the genre as I should be, which is both a curse and a blessing because I can avoid a lot of the drama that goes around.

There are those who believe a part-time writer isn’t as invested or as serious about a writing career, but I think it shows just how dedicated we are. We choose to use what free time we do have in writing when we could be spending it with family or friends.

Because I’m being realistic doesn’t mean I’m not serious. As much as I enjoy writing and crafting stories, and I’d love to increase output, I know my limits. I don’t want to push myself to the point where I burn out and the writing suffers, or I miss out on other things in my life. The most important thing I’ve learned is that a part-time writer needs to find the right balance for them. Maybe it takes a year to write a book; maybe it takes more. The point is to keep on writing and be happy while doing it.

Summary:

Journalist Alex Buchanan has come home to the remote British Columbia town he grew up in, but only because his estranged father is dying. For Alex, the homecoming holds a mix of memories, mostly bad. The only bright spot is reconnecting with Benji Morning, the childhood friend he never truly forgot. As boys, the strength of their bond had frightened Alex. But now that he’s confident in his bisexuality, he’s drawn back to quiet, soft-spoken Ben.

Ben isn’t the same boy Alex left behind, though. His life has been overshadowed by the disappearance of his sister two decades earlier, and now a new break in the case threatens to undo the peace he’s worked so hard to attain.

As Alex struggles to repair the relationship with his father before it’s too late, he finds himself caught up in a twenty-year-old mystery, a story he never expected, and a shocking truth that could affect his and Ben’s future together.

Her characters have accompanied her through career turns as a librarian and an IT professional, until finally, to escape the tedium of a corporate day job, she took a chance and began putting her daydreams down on paper.

Tired of the same old boy-meets-girl stories, she found a home in M/M romance and strives to give her characters the happy endings they deserve.

Tour Stop, Guest Post & Giveaway: Summer Stock by Vanessa North

Top Five Things to See and Do in Banker’s Shoals

Banker’s Shoals may be a fictional town, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a fantasy vacation there. If you make your way out to the Outer Banks in your imagination, these are the sights you just can’t miss.

5. Watch the horses running on the beach. The Outer Banks are home to wild horses—descended from Spanish Mustangs left behind by early Spanish settlers. You can take horse tours to see them, or you might just see them on the beach during your visit. Just remember to stay back—they’re feral—and respect that the island is their home.

4. The lighthouse. If you’re in the Outer Banks, you’re going to want to spend some time visiting some of the historic lighthouses. The Banker’s Shoals lighthouse is a coastal light and you can find it on the eastern side of the island.

3. Donuts on the boardwalk. What does a high school chemistry teacher do when he retires in the Outer Banks? Ryan’s former teacher opened an old fashioned donut shop, and it is glorious. Try the blueberry cake one—you won’t regret it.

2. Bonfire on the beach. Get yourself a permit, gather your friends, and enjoy the mild evening weather on the beach. If your sister happens to own a touristy bar, you might even be able to get a keg from her…just make sure to have a designated driver.

1. Take in a show at Shakespeare by the Sea. The Summer Stock playhouse features two plays every season—both a comedy and a tragedy. A professional cast and crew bring the bard’s stories to life—and rumor has it one of this year’s players is a big Hollywood name.


Title: Summer Stock by Vanessa North
Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Genre: Contemporary, M/M, F/M, Romance
Length: 239 pages/Word Count: 63,400

Summary:

Tabloid scandals have driven TV star Ryan Hertzog to North Carolina’s Outer Banks, where he’s hiding out doing summer stock at his cousin’s seaside theater. When a hookup with local handyman Trey Donovan results in Ryan being photographed butt naked, he vows to keep his pants on and his hands off Trey. How was he supposed to know Trey would turn out to be the summer stock set builder?

Trey isn’t looking for a relationship; he’s still recovering from the emotional fallout of an abusive marriage. But Ryan’s laughter draws him in again and again, and he’s not about to say no to fooling around.

As the summer heats up, the paparazzi catch Ryan in increasingly compromising situations. Ryan might be too much drama for a summer fling—and Trey might be just an intermission from Ryan’s Hollywood life. But if they take their cues from Shakespeare, all’s well that ends well.

Tour Stop & Giveaway: Bend by Nancy J. Hedin

Writing Process

I wish I could say I write every day. I can’t say that. I can say that I write or noodle (think about my work) everyday and most days, I also get some writing done. I usually write longhand in cheap notebooks and fun journals. My wife and kids will tell you I have lots and lots of journals and notebooks. I love school supply sales.

In terms of content, often, I hear a line in my head about the next story or novel I am writing. It’s usually dialog, but it may not be from the main character. It may be the narrator’s voice or a minor character. I need to write this down right away or I may not remember it again. I write fast and messy in order to get the ideas down as quickly as possible so that I don’t lose them.

I can write anywhere—at home, work, on buses. I loved assignments in my MFA program at Hamline University and I give myself assignments when I am writing a novel. When I am stuck, I journal. Being stuck for me usually means I have an authorial decision to make and I’m not sure what to do. So, I write about it. I interview myself about what I want to say and where I want to go in the scene. If that doesn’t work immediately—it often does, I may get the direction over the next couple days, in my sleep, or while doing something other than writing. I write lots of pages of crappy stuff trying to get to something that I want to take further now or later. I usually have several novels in process at once and am reading several books. That’s how the creative process works for me.


Title: Bend by Nancy J. Hedin
Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Imprint: Anglerfish Press
Genre: Contemporary, Lesbian, Young Adult, Romance
Length: 242 pages/Word Count: 61,700

Summary:
Lorraine Tyler is the only queer person in Bend, Minnesota. Or at least that’s what it feels like when the local church preaches so sternly against homosexuality. Which is why she’s fighting so hard to win the McGerber scholarship—her ticket out of Bend—even though her biggest competition is her twin sister, Becky. And even though she’s got no real hope—not with the scholarship’s morality clause and that one time she kissed the preacher’s daughter.

Everything changes when a new girl comes to town. Charity is mysterious, passionate, and—to Lorraine’s delighted surprise—queer too. Now Lorraine may have a chance at freedom and real love.

But then Becky disappears, and Lorraine uncovers an old, painful secret that could tear the family apart. They need each other more than ever now, and somehow it’s Lorraine—the sinner, the black sheep—who holds the power to bring them together. But only if she herself can learn to bend.

Tour Stop, Guest Blog & Giveaway: Don’t Feed the Trolls by Erica Kudisch

Hey nerds! Erica Kudisch here promoting my novel DON’T FEED THE TROLLS, a genderqueer romp through internet drama. And if you keep up with the blog tour and its bonus DLC, there’s a $50 prize package achievement for you to unlock. Have fun!

More Than Character Models: ways the video game industry could be less gender-essentialist

I’ve been a gamer, mostly console, for nearly all my life. Plenty of people have already expounded on the issues that the gaming industry has with its treatment of female characters, amounting mostly to various forms of objectification or complete erasure. But many of these thinkpieces treat gender as a binary, with cis male and cis female as the only options for character creation.

To be fair, hardware limitations account for a lack of nuance. Video games require extensive programming, and the main character often has a prescribed gender and character model–Lara Croft, for instance–or a limited set of models and customizable skins–as in Mass Effect, where you can play either an assumed-male or assumed-female version of Commander Shepard. Some games spread the choices out even farther, once you’ve chosen your starting race or class, but I have yet to encounter a game that has such customizable options where genders other than male and female are available. Echo Bazaar allows for you to play “a person of mysterious and indistinct gender”, but has still character portraits instead of animated character models, which are much less expensive to create.

Said character models are not nearly as expensive as Ubisoft made them out to be in its recent kerfluffle about how “women are hard to animate” pertaining to their Assassin’s Creed franchise. But that assumption is predicated on the idea that there are fundamental anatomical differences between male and female bodies. Which is much more complex than “women are hard to animate”.

More prominent critics than I have extensively discussed the myriad issues with objectifying women in games. So, rather than go on about the flaws, I want to use this space to offer suggestions for game designers to break away from the dominant gender-essential modes of character design.

  • Go back to gaming’s roots. In the earliest games, even if a character had a gender, programming and graphical limitations meant that all characters moved more or less the same and have capabilities not tied to gender. The From Software games do this exceptionally well: while there are still only two options for gender at character creation, everyone can wear the same armor and use the same items, and all player characters have indistinguishable animations and voice acting. It wouldn’t be so hard to just not have gender be a criteria in the character design, since it’s not written into NPC dialog either.
  • More non-gendered or gender-unspecified characters in general would be excellent. Undertale takes advantage of its silent protagonist, the Fallen Child, but there are dozens of other opportunities to just not give a damn about your avatar’s gender.
  • Cheap option: have walk animation be customizable! As long as you have options for gender at character creation, and can select face, body, voice, and costume options, why not offer a selection of walk and gesture packages.
  •  Hire more diverse animation models. We have the tech to turn Lupita Nyong’o into Maz Kanata: use it.

Title: Don’t Feed the Trolls by Erica Kudisch
Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Genre: Contemporary, New Adult, Lesbian, Genderqueer, Romance
Length: 230 pages/Word Count: 55,000

Summary:

Gaming while female is enough to incur the wrath of the dude-bros, and they’ve come for me. Instead of fighting back, I’ve created an alternate account. Male name, male pronouns. And I’ve met this girl. I’ve always liked girls, and Laura’s adorable and smart and never gives up, and she likes me back. Or rather, she likes the man I’m pretending to be. But I can’t tell her I’m a woman without the mob coming after her too.

And besides: I might not be a woman, not really.

The truth is, I don’t know what I am anymore. I’ve spent my whole life being told how I’m supposed to act and what I’m supposed to be, but none of it feels right. And my lie is starting to feel truer than anything I’ve ever been.

There’s a convention coming up, but the closer it gets, the more I have to choose: lie or fight. But if I don’t stand my ground as a girl, am I letting the haters win?

Then again, those aren’t the only two ways to live.

Friday Feature & Giveaway: The Enemies of Versailles by Sally Christie

Writing Sex at Versailles

My trilogy about the (many!) mistresses of Louis XV focuses on the private and intimate moments that I believe are just as important to history as the story of great men and wars. Louis XV was definitely a man ruled by his women, including the four (!) Nesle sisters, the incredible Madame de Pompadour – one of the most powerful women of the 18th century – and the lovely but tragic Comtesse du Barry.

Naturally, given the focus of my trilogy, there is a lot of sex going on, but apparently not enough: the first draft of the manuscript for The Sisters of Versailles kept getting sent back to me by my agent and editors with requests for more sex! I’m not a huge fan of graphic sex scenes and I remember thinking, ugh, really? But I relented and made everything more “sexy” – adding in threesomes, more seductions and the Kama Sutra – though I still managed to keep it mostly implied and off-stage.

For the next book, The Rivals of Versailles, I took my editors’ suggestions to heart and went more explicit, but perhaps too much: my mother said she couldn’t recommend it to her friends! But my editor let me know that the sales team was excited about it because “there’s more sex in this one (sluts)…” to which my agent quipped back: “I always say, you can never go wrong with (sluts)”! And sex does permeate the book, but that’s not surprising since this was the period when the king really slid down the slope of debauchery (quickly): to keep his interest, the Marquise de Pompadour even set up a small brothel in town strictly for the king’s amusement.

In my third book The Enemies of Versailles I think I got the balance right – the Comtesse du Barry was a seasoned courtesan who had been around the block and was very comfortable with all sexual acts, but it remains fairly off-stage. About as explicit as it gets is when, after their first night together, the king exclaims: “And that sweet hole of which I have hitherto been in ignorance; that such joy could be derived from such a dark place.” This is based on a real incident – though the king was extremely amorous, he had been relatively sheltered, and his much more debauched courtiers sniggered at his innocence.

Any differences between sex then and now? Probably not too much. Though everything would have been smellier and hairier, human desire and urges don’t change too much with the centuries, and then, just as now, sex was as central to life as it has always been.


Title: The Enemies of Versailles by Sally Christie
Mistresses of Versailles Trilogy Series Book Three
Publisher: Atria Books
Genre: Historical, Literary Fiction
Length: 416 pages

Summary:

In the final installment of Sally Christie’s “tantalizing” (New York Daily News) Mistresses of Versailles trilogy, Jeanne Becu, a woman of astounding beauty but humble birth, works her way from the grimy back streets of Paris to the palace of Versailles, where the aging King Louis XV has become a jaded and bitter old philanderer. Jeanne bursts into his life and, as the Comtesse du Barry, quickly becomes his official mistress.

“That beastly bourgeois Pompadour was one thing; a common prostitute is quite another kettle of fish.”

After decades of suffering the King’s endless stream of Royal Favorites, the princesses of the Court have reached a breaking point. Horrified that he would bring the lowborn Comtesse du Barry into the hallowed halls of Versailles, Louis XV’s daughters, led by the indomitable Madame Adelaide, vow eternal enmity and enlist the young dauphiness Marie Antoinette in their fight against the new mistress. But as tensions rise and the French Revolution draws closer, a prostitute in the palace soon becomes the least of the nobility’s concerns.

Told in Christie’s witty and engaging style, the final book in The Mistresses of Versailles trilogy will delight and entrance fans as it once again brings to life the sumptuous and cruel world of eighteenth century Versailles, and France as it approaches irrevocable change.

Tour Stop, Guest Post & Giveaway: Rogue Magic by Kit Brisby

Beginner Yoga Tips

In ROGUE MAGIC, Byron is clueless about yoga. He likes what he sees—Levi moving his body. But beyond that, he doesn’t really get it.

That was me about four years ago. The first time I attended a yoga class, I was terrified. I’m not bendy. I’m not athletic. I don’t go to group fitness classes. I worried about what they’d think of me and what kind of fool I’d look like.

My first tip for beginners is to put all of those fears aside. Of course, finding the right studio helps a lot, but as long as you’re hitting the mat somewhere beginner-friendly that doesn’t over-emphasize “power yoga,” you’re going to be just fine. (Power yoga is fine if you’re in shape for it and you’ve established the basics.)

Take a class specifically geared toward beginners or improving form. Listen. Be humble. Keep your focus on the instructor and your mat. Everyone comes to class with their own challenges and fears and concerns. You’re not alone in feeling awkward, but you should feel welcome. Even the people doing headstands were beginners once.

If you’re going to class, give yourself about 20 minutes to do paperwork, get changed, and settle in. Disconnect from your day. Avoid wearing fitness trackers or smart watches that give you alerts from your phone. Take off your jewelry.

You’ll hear a lot about the breath. This is the cornerstone of yoga. It might feel strange to control your breath and pay attention to it, but this will become routine as you practice more often. You’ll find it bleeding into your regular routines. You might turn to the breath to calm down in a stressful situation when you might have reached for other coping strategies that don’t serve you as well. (I’m still waiting for that to happen, because I’m more likely to reach for a cupcake than a good breathing sequence.)

Don’t stress if you can’t touch your toes or get into other “beginner” poses. I’ve been practicing yoga for years and my forward fold doesn’t look much different than it did the very first time I practices. Everyone has a different body with different capabilities. It may sound corny, but yoga really is about a journey. It wouldn’t be fun if you got there on the first class.

Another thing to keep in mind is that yoga is for all body types and genders. Sure, there’s a stereotype of young women with zero body fat and limber circus bodies, but that isn’t a requirement or the norm. If you’re plus size, follow yoga instructors online who look like you. (Google Jessamyn Stanley; she’s a goddess.) If you’re a guy or NB, go to class. Get a sense of the vibe. And go to another studio if you don’t feel welcome for any reason at all. I’ve been fortunate to attend a studio owned and operated by other queer women. It’s a very welcoming and inclusive space.

If yoga at a studio isn’t in your budget or your time availability, try an online service like YogaGlo, or start with a DVD or videos on YouTube. You can pick up a mat for pretty cheap, and beyond that it doesn’t matter what you wear as long as you’re comfortable.

As someone with anxiety, yoga has helped me tremendously. I don’t practice as often as I know I should, but every time I’m back on the mat, I relish every moment with my body and my breath. It’s an escape from stress, from deadlines, from the lizard brain and negative self talk that plague me. And it feels so good.

In Rogue Magic, Levi performs sun salutations. If you establish any kind of routine, I recommend this one every day. A couple rounds will get you moving and hone your focus.

Try it!


Title: Rogue Magic by Kit Brisby
Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Genre: Contemporary, Urban Fantasy, M/M, Paranormal, Romance
Length: 328 pages/Word Count: 81,000

Summary:

While trapped in a stalled subway train on his morning commute, PR rep Byron Cole flirts with Levi, a young waiter with adorable curls. But Byron’s hopes for romance crash and burn when Levi saves him from a brutal explosion—with outlawed magic.

When Levi is imprisoned, Byron begins to question everything he’s ever believed. How can magic be evil when Levi used it to save dozens of lives? So Byron hatches a plan to save Levi that will cost him his job and probably his life. If he doesn’t pull it off, Levi will be put to death.

Byron discovers that he isn’t the only one questioning America’s stance on magic. And he learns that Levi is stubborn, angry, and utterly enchanting. Time is running out, though. Byron must convince Levi to trust him, to trust his own magic, and to fight against the hatred that’s forced him to hide his true nature his entire life. The more Levi opens up, the harder Byron falls. And the more they have to lose.

Her career has taken her from writing think pieces on breastfeeding to writing erotica for the adult industry—and nearly everything in between. She works in digital marketing and helps businesses find and tell their stories.

Kit is always trying to find balance between working full-time, revisiting or writing books every night, and modeling badass behavior to her two boys. Sometimes the lure of Tumblr interferes with all of that balancing. She’s just old enough to still be utterly enchanted by animated gifs.

A single mom and aspiring yogi, Kit is open about her struggles with anxiety and the importance of self-care. She also advocates for neurodiversity and acceptance of those on the autism spectrum. Few things get her as riled up as bisexual erasure.

Though she lives in the South, Kit is a NYC girl at heart, and makes a point of traveling to the city as often as she can to catch a few shows and eat as much ramen as humanly possible.

She reads avidly, and gravitates toward historical queer romance and young adult fantasy, especially when the stakes are high. She’s a fan of awkward first dates unless she’s participating in them, and is outspoken about embracing kink and sex positivity.
