#OnceUponATime #FanFic Friday: Killian The Massage Therapist Is At Your Service

thesedreams

In my Once Upon A Time Fanfic, These Dreams, Emma gets trapped in the dreamscape, falling in and out of the dreams of the residents of Storybrooke, as well as her own dreams, too. Killian goes under a sleeping curse so that he can rescue her, but in every dream scenario, one of them has to be reminded of who they are. In this chapter, Killian finds Emma – and oh, is this unexpected . . .


“Your client is ready in room six,” the young woman said to Killian, sticking her head around the door frame.

Killian took a moment to get his bearings. He gave the girl a nod of acknowledgement, not having the foggiest idea as to what he should be doing with that information. He looked down at his attire for clues, but didn’t get much. He was wearing black jeans and a black tee shirt, with some sort of logo on the front of it over the left breast pocket.

He reached into his pocket, pulling out the compass – which seemed, happily, to travel with him wherever he went – and checked it. The needle directed him down the hallway, right to room six. He grasped the doorknob and stepped inside, closing the door behind him.

He was completely unprepared for the sight that awaited him. A woman lay face-down on a low table, completely unclothed but for a sheet, artfully draped across her shapely bum and nothing else. That was startling enough, but he knew the line of that neck and the set of those shoulders anywhere.

“Emma?”

She raised a non-committal hand. “Come on in,” she said, her voice muffled. “I’m ready to go.”

Yes! At Last! The End Is In Sight!

Yes! I finished the latest draft of EARTHSINGER and I am going to cautiously say this will be out by Easter! Finally!! And then I’ve got to find time to carve out Firesinger around my next YA project, but that should go faster since it’s the culmination of the series. I hope.

Thanks so much for being patient, you guys. Seriously. Juggling all this writing, two kids, and a full time job is crazy making a lot of the time, and the YA stuff is going to have to take priority since it’s being “Big 5” published.

I really do appreciate the way you’ve all stuck with me. My readers are the best! Watch for an announcement next week about EARTHSINGER!

Middle Of The Night Writing

Young woman addicted to social media

I’ve had a serious bout of insomnia for nearly two weeks now, and a few nights ago I decided I was done lying there staring at the wall and thinking about how I needed to go back to sleep, I’d get up and write.

It’s been very oddly productive. I’m getting tons done. I’m sleep-deprived as hell and nodding off at my desk around 3pm, but by God, I’m getting writing done. Continue reading

In The Breathe Time

The latest round of rewrites on my second YA book are in the editor’s hands, things at the day job have finally stopped spinning out of control, a certain court-related matter having to do with fighting a traffic citation that blossomed into mammoth proportions finally got dismissed completely (yay!) and life is leveling out (I say this with a good deal of trepidation because ya never know . . .).

I’m in the breathe time, and oh, how I needed it. I feel really crappy that I’ve let Earthsinger go for so long – like I’ve really let my readers down. I’ve also let myself down – and Earthsinger was a story I was so jazzed about telling! Matt and Manni are so electric in their chemistry and so much fun to write. I’ve delved back in non-stop again and it’s coming together at last. Look for this one soon, and then the one after that (Firesinger). Continue reading
