I’m just a tad excited. Ok, a lot excited. I’ve told you about Unforeseen coming out next week. I have comments back from Betas on Cibola’s Revenge and shooting to have that out by Christmas. But now, I have a new announcement, I am launching a new Pen Name, to write my happy, fun, lovely romances. Oh, they are fairly steamy too. They just don’t fit in the same vein as my Erin Lausten books. So if you like sweet, steamy fantasy fodder, check out Amie Archer at http://amiearcher.wordpress.com/
Now what has me super excited is not only am I telling the world Amie exists, but I am also releasing her (my) first book. It’s a novella, it’s hot and just in time for Christmas. Before you ask, it is titled Cabin Fever. Oh yeh, did I say hot? Yum. In addition to this first book, I will have two more out before Christmas. So if a heat-filled romance is something you like, check out Amie Archer’s blog and like her on Facebook!
Wait… did I say I have three books for Amie, and two for Erin coming out before Christmas? Yes, yes I did say that. No I am not a mutant (though you could say some of my characters are… Viators maybe? Hmmm), but I do have that many books to release. I just happen to have a backlog which is finally getting cleaned out.
How am I handling all this insanity? Well, I can say I’m just a little nutty. Not the normal nutty, but a more frazzled, excitable, happy nutty. I couldn’t do this without a huge support staff. Well, not huge, but the help and support these key players provide is HUGE. Consider yourself warned that you will see a flurry of madness over the next couple of months and then we’ll be back on track. After the madness I’ll be working on a new project. A super-secret project ….ok, I can’t keep secrets. It’s about vampires…and werewolves… and fairies… and centaurs…and Chihuahuas… um, yeh, I said Chihuahuas. It’s going be a blast. It will be MY fun take on the supernatural genre. So, keep watching—things are about to get Verrrry interesting.

It has been very quiet on the writing front. Life events have a tendency to move us in unexpected directions and for me those events put the brakes on my writing, this blog included. I am overjoyed to announce, I’m back on the move.
There are several New Releases coming from Erin Lausten in the very near future!
I am excited to report on the first two New Releases. First on the list is Unforeseen, Book Two in the Viator Legacy series. It is in the final stage of pre-publication and we’re anticipating its release near the end of the summer. In addition, I’ve made fantastic progress on Cibola’s Revenge. We pick up right where we left off in Cibola’s Promise. All those pesky details and cliff hangers will be resolved in a wild ride through the Steampunk Wild West. Look for that release in the Fall of 2013.
I am very touched by those who have reached out and told me how much you’ve loved the books so far. I promise, I am working diligently to bring you more of the same!

I just had a wonderful experience. I am working on book two of the Viator Legacy Series. Book One is in the hands of my wonderful readers and I hope to have it available for launch late summer. So while I wait I am hard at work on the second book. The more I write, the more I am learning how things work and the biggest surprise is seeing how some things just seem to fall into place.
I am not a big plotter. I don’t sit down and plot every step of the way or every twist in the story. I don’t just fly by the seat of my pants either. I have a general idea of what is coming next and where I need to go. But the details tend to reveal themselves over time. Most of the time I feel like I am making it up as I go along, after all I am creating a story. But sometimes a twist happens and I have no idea why or how it happened. And I wonder, will I ever figure this out? Will it work or will it take me down a road in the story that doesn’t work and I will have wasted time on something that will have to be dumped?
And that happens. Things have to be dumped. But sometimes, like today, the reason for the twist reveals itself in a perfect way. And I have no idea how it happened. I didn’t consciously decide that today I would fit this piece in. It just kind of happened. It gives me a euphoric feeling.
And it is far from unusual. I have had this same thing happen in life. I have done things, made decisions, made contacts that only prove later to be the key to some need or opportunity. And I look back and see all the blocks that were stacked like a crazy game of Tetris and then that perfect piece is released and I get a high score.
I don’t understand it. But I won’t question it. I just go with it and love when it works.
