Update info and stuff

Just getting back into writing after my winter break, and I’m SO glad December is over.

Today, I’ve posted the This Life futuretake that I once donated to Fandom For Friends. It’s now available for everyone, right HERE.

The next chapter of Grand Finale is also off to pre-readers, so it shouldn’t be too long before I post it :) And the next chapter of World to Come is next; gonna work on it this weekend.

Of Grand, there are maybe 5 or so chapters left–not counting outtakes and futuretakes for later–and I think there are about 7-10 chapters left of World to Come. When these two stories are done, I will start posting the sequel to A Drink with the Girls/A Beer with the Guys, which is titled Vacation with Family :)

Otherwise on my to-write list–aside from original works–is a hockey fic with Twinwards, a Bikerward (I’ve watched too much Sons of Anarchy,) and a new project called Secrets & Wishes with an Olderward and lots of drama. Whenever I start posting these stories, you can count on fast updates, because I’m done posting new stuff before I’ve finished them. For instance, I already have 10 chapters of my Biker story (titled A Bastard’s Girl,) but I won’t post it until it’s complete. Same with Secrets & Wishes where I have 5 chapters done.

Hmm, what else, what else…of course: This Life II :)

My 2014 is already booked.

And if you cross your fingers, maybe Edward from NFW can stop moping and start speaking, ’cause I still want his sequel.

Issues, issues.

Edit: Of course I plan on finally wrapping up Fall & Rise and Masen Rules: The Beginning, too :)

This Life Futuretake – Fandom For Friends

Did you know there’s still time to donate?

I’ll be handing over a This Life futuretake for the compilation, and here’s a teaser :)

Whistler’s POV:

Before dinner, the wife and I do the responsible thing since there’s so much to do. I mean, hours of celebrating Kaelyn’s birthday has obviously resulted in a house that looks like a war zone; plus, now it’s preparations for dinner…all the kids running around, cleaning up, keeping sane…

We escape.

We leave everything behind and drive away from my parents’ estate.

“We suck,” Bella giggles.

“Nah…” I grin and kiss her fingers. “It’s only for half an hour or something.”

We gotta breathe, man.

“Did you get something from the car earlier, by the way?” I ask as I turn on to the main road.

It’s already dark out, and the streets are empty.

“No. Why?”

Huh. I shrug. “Never mind.” The car was unlocked, that’s all. But maybe I forgot to lock it before. “So, where to?”

She hums and absently rubs her belly. “Just drive around for a bit.”

So, that’s what we do. We drive around in bumfuck Forks where our story began and banter about everything and nothing. I tell her I’ve seen ghost towns with more people than Forks, and she calls bullshit since I have a mad fear for ghosts. I’d never go near a ghost town, in case there actually are ghosts.

“Stop the car!” she suddenly shouts.

I fucking stop. With my heart in my throat. “What the hell?!” She fucking scared me!

“Look!” She points to a random house. “What does it say on the mailbox?”

Squinting ’cause it’s dark out, I read the name on the decorated mailbox and smirk. Well, well, well. Unless Jacob “Sidekick” Black has gone queer, I’d say he has a kid who’s fond of decorating shit. And they live right here.

“Could be someone else in the Black family, though,” I think out loud. “He’s a Fed, and they don’t come in high demand in Forks.”

“But we looked into his history, remember?” Bella reminds me. “He has no siblings, and his father lives out in La Push. Besides, Jasper and Alice live on the next street, and we know Sidekick and Jasper are close.”

True. And Jasper is also a Fed these days, and he lives here. As far as I know, they have condos in Seattle, but maybe they’re like us; they go home during the holidays. And as much as I hate Forks, it is where we have our family reunions. Privacy and all.

“Let’s check out Jasper’s house and see if they’re home,” the wife suggests.

I nod and start driving again.

“You know…we never did get back at them for intruding on Rose and Emmett’s wedding.”

I snicker and, truth be told, I get a little turned on. Call me fucked up but I love it when my wife gets bad.

oOo

Isla de Cullen

Isla Banner

A few months ago, I pulled Isla de Cullen since I plan to publish it. Oh yes, I’m one of those authors now–those godawful P2P rodents ;) Shame on me. *slaps fingers with Takeward’s ruler.*

However, Isla is still a fanfic, and many have asked for it. And I’ve never forbidden people to share it; on the contrary, I’ve encouraged it. I only removed it from my blog.

Then my thinking cap was on, and I have loads of ideas for Isla. Yes, I still plan on publishing it, but the changes will be so big and the additions will be many, so I decided bring back Isla on the blog, regardless.

The day I slap on a new title and put it on Amazon, I will be clear on the fact that it has once been a fanfic, although, like I said, many things will change with the story. For instance, I can’t wait to introduce Takeward’s little brother ;) But for those who simply want Isla to remain the way it is, you can now download it again right here on the blog.

You’ll find it under “Stories.” Just scroll down until you get to the Isla banner, and the link to the PDF is right below.

It’s also right here: Isla de Cullen

Cheers,
