Shake, stir and see what comes out

What do Steampunk, a modern-day Realtor, a megalomaniacal cat and a tortured Viscount have in common? They're all elements of various stories fighting for my attention! No sooner have I settled in with one tale than another starts clamouring for me to get back to it.

Luckily for me, crit partner Amy comes to the rescue again. Hearing about the Passionate Reads pitch contest, she dared me to enter. I did, with a pitch for my partially completed erotic Steampunk novella, Beyond Prudence. So now, no matter what else I'm tempted to get into, that particular book has to have first dibs on my time. I'm afraid Ellora's Cave editor Grace Bradley will actually be interested, and I won't be ready.

Fear really is a great motivator...

If you have a moment, please do pop by and vote for me! Voting on the pitches opens on January 8th, 2011 and ends on the 15th.
