Writing Update - October 2018

Welcome to the fifth of my bimonthly writing updates for 2018.

Nicki J. Markus
I still have nothing to report for this pen name. I am having some communication difficulties with one of my publishers (who hasn't sent me a royalty report since January), so I am skittish about submitting anything new to them at present. I think I will wait out this year and decide how to move forward in 2019.

I've been slack on the writing front over the last few months. I kind of lost my mojo there for a while. Luckily, I can sense the writing urge returning, so I hope to get back into it between now and year's end. I have four stories all in early stages, so I will press on with those as we head into 2019. In the meantime, I have a holiday short story out from Dreamspinner Press in December, and I signed with NineStar Press for my MM paranormal romance novel Blood is Forever. Publication of the latter will be in 2019. I will let you know when I have a firm date for release.

New and Forthcoming Publications
  • Barbies and Beaches (MM Holiday Short Story) - Dreamspinner Press - 1 December
  • Blood is Forever (Sanguis Est In Aeternum) (MM PNR novel) - NineStar Press - 2019
