Writing Update: April 2016

Welcome to the second of my bimonthly writing updates for 2016.

Nicki J. Markus 
I am currently seeking a publisher for my Gothic-Paranormal novel.
Meanwhile, I am working on a new Steampunk novel and a paranormal novella, and I have a short story coming out in May. I will keep my eyes open for more MF/mainstream short story opportunities later in the year.

Asta Idonea
I have several forthcoming MM works already contracted, with others currently under consideration.
At present, I am working on two MM novellas and three MM short stories (for anthology calls). There is one other anthology call I may enter, plus I have an idea for another novel/novella once these current ones are close to completion.

Simply Shakespeare Blog Hop

Today I am taking part in Rian's Simply Shakespeare Blog Hop. Check out all the other posts here.

I honestly can't recall my first encounter with Shakespeare; not even whether it was book, film, or stage. All I know is that I've always loved his works. I adored them throughout my grammar school days and chose Shakespeare Studies as one of my electives during the final year of my BA (hons) English with French. I've read all the plays and poems and have seen nearly all of them performed on stage or screen or both. I own three different DVD versions of Hamlet alone, and I love to reference Shakespeare in my own writing.
