State of The Trout

Posted in Uncategorized

Long time, no see! I know, it seems like I’m avoiding you. I’m not. I’ve just got stuff going on! Great stuff!

  • I’m hard at work on editing The Girlfriend, the much anticipated sequel to The Boss. I’m aiming for an August 20th release for the ebook, but since I’ve never worked with the ebook company I’m working with now, that could be subject to change. So stay tuned. I’m also looking to coordinate a cover reveal for August 10th. If you have a blog, and you’d like to be a part of the cover reveal, fill out this form.
  • Speaking of cover reveals, you still have a day to enter the Such Sweet Sorrow cover reveal contest, for a chance to win the book!
  • I’ve also been hard at work editing a short story for a friend, and it got me thinking… I could definitely do this for other people. So, I’m offering up my services as an editor. If you’re looking to hire someone to work on your project, check out the “editing services” tab in the menu above.
  • And on top of all of this, I’ve been sucked into a New Adult book idea that hit me like a truck. More information on that as it’s available.

So, what have you all been up to? If you’ve been up to nothing, just make something up. If you want to be really awesome, make something up and put dragons in it.

    I’ve been recovering from a rather significant setback (she says tactfully) but I’ve been using the recovery time to draw flowers, attempt to relearn the piano and sneak past the Head Gremlin that’s trying to stop me from finishing this vampire-free paranormal romance I’ve been working on. (No vampires. No werewolves. Magicians. In really sharp suits.)

    So I’ve been following you ever since you started recapping 50 shades and I visit your site frequently to see what you’ve been up to. The only reason I’ve never commented is because I couldn’t figure out the comment thing on my phone and I’m lazy to fetch my laptop 🙂

    I am 30 years old and I have never read an erotic novel…like, ever. And I read a couple of your past novels and have been HOOKED on the boss. You are an amazing writer and I get sucked into your books so easily. You are a true talent. I especially love how your intelligence and passion for writing just flow into words on paper. I can tell you truly love what you do and it makes me love your stories :)))

    This is a great update on what you are doing. Congrats on a new venture with editing and I can’t wait to get my hands on The Girlfriend!

    For me, I just got the keys to my new office/studio, and I have been moving in all morning. I have been working on my business for about 2 solid months now and will open my doors in 2 weeks. Overwhelming, exhausting, fun and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

    I’m breeding dragons. Shiny, colorful dragons. Trying to get my act together to get serious about putting together that Yaoi-ish Whore House retaliation comic (like what you did with the Boss to 50 Shades, I’m doing with my idea. Only it’s a comic. About whores. With pictures and not as many descriptive words). Eventually getting around to that Zombie porn comic.

    But right now I should be studying for a promotion. :/

  4. I was trying to save the prince who’s trapped in the castle that’s guarded by the fire breathing dragon, but we got to talking (the dragon and me) and decided that no man who was able to get himself trapped in a castle was worth the trouble and we went to have a beer. Turns out that Mary (the dragon’s name) is actually very misunderstood. She wasn’t keeping Prince Dumbass in the castle. She was trying to get him out! He invaded a few years ago and like the creepy uncle that doesn’t know when to leave, he’s taken up residence. The twat. She and I are gonna kick it roomie style for a while until the judge signs off on the eviction notice.

    Also, I graduate college in 7 days 6 hours, 49 minutes, and 15 seconds. But who’s counting, right?

    • My kids were sick last week. Which was just when they’d recovered from the super-stressful week when my husband was running a teen conference. Also my sister had two surgeries for thyroid cancer in the last two weeks.

      What have I been doing? NOTHING. Except reading Pride and Prejudice fanfic. I’ve managed ten minutes of artwork, which is better than nothing.

      Oh, but I did manage to keep my Ephesians study going and I’m nearly done. My last post will be today or tomorrow. I’m getting a lot of follows on that blog (okay, only 25, but it’s only like 30 posts) it’s kinda weird.

      Next week I will go back to practicing swordfighting and saving the world from giant aliens. And crocheting my own armor, of course. Or knitting, possibly.

      • They did – the first time they thought they could just take out half, but then the final pathology wasn’t as good and they had to go back in and take out the rest. She should be fine – it’s likely she won’t need any further treatment

        Today I had a stomach bug and my eight-month-old had what turned out to be an ear infection. I am never getting anything done ever again.

        Oh! But Thursday we have a playdate to get to know our neighbors, with the help of a plastic tablecloth on the yard and lots of shaving cream. I’m looking forward to that

    i am trying to not stress over money and all the late bills we have, and trying to lose myself in the world i’m creating for a book i want to write (if i weren’t a terrible writer, that is). i’m obsessing over the language and lore and history and government and all of that, and the plot is still this thin wisp that slips through my grasp when i try to pin it. so i work on other bits hoping the wisp will stop being shy and will grace me with its presence. also it’s fun to do all the other stuff anyway. especially species creation! well, sort of creation, as there will be mer-people, but not like any mer-peeps i’ve ever read about/heard of. i’m hoping their rather unique, but time will tell i guess! but there’s still magic and fantastical beasts! and brilliant technology! and it makes me all excited when i think about it.

    Oh! Mine actually has dragons in it! I found “How to Train Your Dragon” at the library for my daughter to watch. I came into the room as the credits were playing and saw that David Tennant was in it. Which I think I knew but had forgotten. I’m a huge DT fan so I’ll have to watch it with her next time. I also got “Brave” which was awesome.

    Oh, and what have I been up to? I’ve had bronchitis which gave me laryngitis and couldn’t talk for a week, but since I had my PR and my quarterly review I had to work. In a McDonald’s. with no voice and a sexy cough. And 100 other staff to make fun of me (call pest control, we’ve got a mouse! And other witty comments). My son got bit on the eye by a bug so I was doing pirate impressions around him when we took him to the doctor for some antihistamines, and I’ve started panicking that I go to Italy in three weeks and have no euros yet. Although, Italy, so all the other crap makes up for it.

    I’ve been finishing my second to last semester of law school, which will be over today! I have been celebrating by spending 0 extra hours working this week and instead getting myself hooked on Skyrim. Except all I want to do is go around the world and pick berries and flowers and yet every time I try to start a friendly conversation with someone, they are asking me to do shit for them. And not little shit like, hey can you walk me home, but big shit, like hey can you go across the world and kill people to get me my sword back. I don’t know, maybe I’m old fashioned, but you don’t ask for a hit on the first date.

  23. I work in an institution where most of our clients suffer from severe schizophrenia and-or personality disorders. Most of the time they’re quite nice and everything goes well, but I guess the heatwave affected them pretty bad. Last weekend I was yelled at, accused, threatened, hit on, and told repeatedly that I was the crazy one… Coming home to find a new Buffy Rewatch = much needed laughter.

    The job isn’t easy but I love it. Besides, I need the money to pay for my Masters in Criminology, so that I can work with people who have severe mental health issues AND problems with the law.. Who knows, maybe I’ll come across a Red Dragon 😉

    As for me, I finally came to terms with the many areas in which I and my boyfriend of four years were plain incompatible (spoiler: It in no way involved spanking), and I broke it off this weekend. Not an easy decision, but I’m sure it’s the right one.

    • DID YOU REALLY?! ARE THERE PHOTOS?! I need to see this. I want to just grab a red panda and squeeze the life out of it from cuteness.

        Oh yay! I can finally use my nerdy trivia!! There is a word in the Philippine language, ‘Gigil’, and it means “the urge to pinch or squeeze something that is unbearably cute”. Useless information rocks! Hope you are well (and everyone else who visits this site) xx

    I’ve just dropped my truck of at the mechanic to have my breaks looked at. I took it there almost two years ago to have the water pump replaced. They remembered me and my little truck! How great is that! These guys are super nice, never try to get me to fix stuff that doesn’t need fixed, don’t act all “don’t worry little lady” with me and are totally affordable. I expect this from the mechanic in my tiny home town, after all if you screw people in a small town, who’s gonna use your services? But in a big city? AWESOME!

    Just super excited by how great it is to find an honest mechanic. Also, I’m in the middle of canning my homemade pesto. I’m up to 24 pints. Geeze 12 basil plants makes a lot of pesto!

    • That’s awesome. It’s sad that we get so excited to not get ripped off, LOL.

    • Ha! Every blog has it’s growing pains. I suggest you find something inexplicably popular that lots of people hate, and start making fun of it. That really breaks the ice.

    Hey, Jenny.
    I read some chapters of The Boss and I’m totally addicted. The only thing is that I got lost on the chapters because of personal matters. And since I’m now free (of my university, for now xD), I’ll read the rest of the chapters.
    By the way, did you read this? – http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/news/a491768/stephen-amell-on-50-shades-refusal-christian-grey-isnt-interesting.html .
    I can assure you, you’ll totally laugh with this like I did xD
    Have a good writing 🙂

    You want the list?
    – Got a job (for the summer) but since the summer’s half over, job ends soon. Have loved every minute of it other than dealing with the boss from hell. But she’s on vacation until Thursday, and then she’s getting laid off, so the rest of the summer will be MUCH better.
    – Dog got sick. Really sick. Like, terminal but temporarily under control with medication.
    – Got my driver’s license, finally. I’m 24, so it was kind of a big deal 😛
    – Bought a condo!!! I move in 6 weeks.
    – Trying to sell our current home (my parents’) so they can move away from us >.<
    – Starting my teaching internship in 3 weeks and I'm nervous as hell.
    – Started seeing someone (kinda), and got dumped (kinda – he's moving out of continent).
    – Got tickets to see Les Mis!!!!

    So yeah, it's been a busy few weeks. I think I might have gone a bit nuts, and I'm pretty much ok with that.

      Oh, and I’m considering a new business venture 🙂 Nothing big (doing nails in my spare time), but apparently my hairdresser has found me customers without me even telling her about it. So that’s cool.

    So, totally(*) true story: today I went to do some grocery shopping, and since the supermarket’s not super-far-away and I don’t have a car and there’s a nice breeze today, I walk. On the way back, I figure, hey, let’s try to take a shortcut, I think I know basically where I can go to cut out some of the distance!

    Except I don’t turn where I should and I end up getting lost and stuck in a dead end and having to retrace back almost the entire way I had. While carrying a gallon of milk and several frozen items. Meanwhile, the nice breeze is doing less and less for me and I can feel myself nearing heat exhaustion.

    Then a dragon swooped down from out of nowhere and offered me a ride home on her back–but not before we had awesome adventures! And then we had totally awesome adventures, and then I got home and put my groceries away and ate sushi and cooled down. The End!

    (*) story may in fact not be /totally/ true, but it has a dragon, so fuck you, who cares
