ON THE HORNS OF A DILEMMA…


My life has grown more complicated and I need you my readers to help me decide a course of action to take.

Yesterday, I attended  an Orientation for the California State University of Monterey Bay, which I will be entering this Fall.  I will be pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in Collaborative Health and Human Services.  The plan is for me to attend for 3 full years instead of just 2.  This will allow us to continue residing on campus in very comfortable housing, provided I take 12 units a semester.

However, a wrinkle occurred yesterday when I signed up for classes.  I wound up with 15 units because there were certain classes I HAVE to take before the Spring semester, so I had to bite the bullet on this semester. Future semesters will be kept to 12 or so units.

This greater workload now presents me with a dilemma.  Originally, I was planning to get the first installment of “THE VAMPYRE BLOGS” out this December.  Unfortunately, I’m hearing form various folks who have recently read “THE SHIP” and are eager for me to continue with the characters from this part of the series (Cassie, Julie, Alex and Veronica).  The next installment of their story “THE DOOR” will wrap up a number of plot lines that have been running throughout the first 2 books.  “THE DOOR” will not mean an end for these characters by any means. I’ll be using them more, but the major underlying sub-plot which involves a white-haired individual and the secret of Brandon would finally be explained.

On the other hand, I know there’s a growing crowd eager for “THE VAMPYRE BLOGS”, however that story line seems to be growing even bigger than I originally planned and may have to be told in 2 or more installments.  Originally, I had planned to unveil “THE VAMPYRE BLOGS” this December, but with it growing larger and larger I’m not sure I can keep this deadline.

This brings me to a dilemma. Knowing I’ll have less time to work from August to December, which book should I concentrate on?

Both “THE DOOR” and “THE VAMYPRE BLOGS” are part way finished. Which one would you all like to see come out this December? Please leave your comments below and help me decide, thank you.

Looking forward to hearing your input.  Until next time, keep writing…

Just wanted to share a link to my writing blog.  I posted a new entry there along with a quick short story I did for my creative writing class at college.  Go check it out and enjoy.

I’ll be posting a longer entry here soon so hang in there everyone.  I won’t keep you waiting too long.

Meanwhile, here’s the link..

Sorry for lack of posts lately…


Just wanted to apologize to everyone for not posting much lately.  College is under way and I’m carrying 16 units altogether.  So far 5 of my classes are slamming me with lots of reading homework and weekly quizzes.  Just 4 of the classes alone is giving me over 100 pages to reading a week, plus taking notes from what I’m reading.   As a result of this, my eyes have taken on a lovely ‘Zombie’ expression and that’s in my more lively moments. You don’t want to ask about other moments.

So, my writing is taking a bit of a backseat for the moment.  I haven’t stopped entirely and hope not to even if it’s just for the semester.  I need my creative outlet to help keep my mental and emotional balance.  I’m already doing exercise and dance for physical balance.

I’ll try to keep posting sections of some of my works-in-progress to keep you all amused and hopefully intrigued.  Thanks for your patience and support.  I’ll post another section of “The Bridge” shortly.  After that I may post either from my one-off story about the ‘Other’ son of the Devil, or from one of the sequels to “The Bridge” that is currently under way.  (Hopefully I’ll get a chance to work on it some more shortly).

Take care everyone.
