Mercury is retrograding during the month of February. Not just a few days, but practically the whole frick'in month. Now many of you will scoff at such astrological nonsense, but I've come to respect this particular aspect. So what does it mean when Mercury appears to be going backwards in orbit?
Communication gets crazy, technical issues crop up, and you better not start new projects because they aren't going to go the way you've planned.
That's why I busted my 'you know what' the month of January to make final decisions on my projects I started before February 5. :) I signed contracts for my male/female books with Musa, created a creativity class for a university in Georgia and edited Book One of Orbus Arcana to be formatted for self-publishing in March. That way, I'm not starting something new, but completing instead. I'll launch my projects during more favorable months.
In March, I'm self publishing with co-author Vina Gray our Orbus Arcana m/m vampire series. We got the rights back for book one (For The Bite Of It) and enhanced the story. We hope to put For The Bite of It for free for a time so those who purchased the book before can read the changes. And, best of all Book Two is completed (A Bite In Time) and will be published about a month or so later. Vina has been writing away on Book 3.
In April, I'm going straight - and on April 4 Musa Publishing will publish Formula For Love, a male/female romance. I made sure the contract was signed way before a Mercury Retrograde, so I should be good to go. I hope readers of my m/m books will give it a try. Set during the turbulent Sixties - it's a fun romp through Haight Ashbury, U.C. Berkeley and Big Sur, my old stomping grounds. I love San Francisco and miss it, so I love writing about it and set many of my stories in the Bay Area.
Love and Peace!
Formula For One
