Recently, I had the chance to sit down and chat with Baltimore-area indie author Emie. Her most recent book, Adonis, was published by Yaoi Revolution, an indie publishing company based in Irvine, California. You can connect with Emie through her Facebook fan page, EAB Author Page, and can purchase her book here.

Recently, I’d had the pleasure of interviewing Sharon Barela, owner and publisher of Yaoi Revolution. We had some time after a busy day of panels at Ahn!Con to discuss running a small business, the troupes of boy-love and I learnt that “seagulling” is a thing.

Adventures in Writing: Part 1

So my plan was to get to bed before dawn. But yet, I find myself typing away on my computer. Again.

But seeing as today is a holiday and I really don’t have much to do, I suppose I could sleep later. I’ve found that unless I’m falling asleep at my computer, or the next day is rather busy, it’s better to write while the ideas are in my head than to wait.

So what am I working on now? Well, I’ve got a BL manuscript for my publisher that I’m working on. If you don’t know what BL is, refer back to my interview with Hamlet Machine.

I’ve been plugging away at it for a while and I’d decided to take a couple of days away from it this weekend. The break was awesome—I got to hang out with friends, got some air and my head feels clear that I can finish it.

And this week, I’ll start writing a feature script, yay! It’s an idea that I’ve had for a while and I’m excited to get started on it. It was an entry I’d submitted for a script challenge, and though I didn’t make the final list, I was invited to write alongside those who were selected. Why not seize this opportunity?

So I have six weeks from start to finish. I was able to complete NaNoWriMo in 30 days, let’s see if I can make this happen in 42. Wish me luck!
