#amwriting Really, I am. #NaNoWriMo 2015 #contest #giveaway

So NaNoWriMo is back again and I’m working on a sequel for Coil Me Up with Adan DePiaz. Don’t know if we’ll get to 50k words or not, but it’s nice to try. *smile* Day Three (because I was sick Day 1 and worked Day 2, but I did get some writing in) is going and I might write some tonight. Adan is working on the Prologue from one MC’s point of view, and I’m working from the other MC’s point of view. Should be interesting where the scenes will fit. Not unusual for me to write out of order. Heck Coil Me Up’s ending started first.

Interestingly, someone commented on one of my blog posts last week asking about a sequel to Charon’s Dilemma, the DRitC event story from 2014. I did respond that I considered doing a sequel for that story but probably not immediately. Have to get through the month of November, and probably December before I can think of other stories. I’m multitasking on too many things as it is now. Writing is actually something creative I can do to counteract some studying I need to do before the end of the month. So, yeah. It’s pretty packed since I also host posts for authors and promotional book tours, review (for two blogs no less), and still read for fun.

And that doesn’t even count the things I do with family, especially weekends. Did I mention I work remotely with my full-time job? Best. Thing. Ever.

While I’m off being creative, and in the spirit of publishing, I would like to propose a contest. Comment on this post for a $10 Gift Certificate to the eretailer of your choice (B&N, ARe, Bookstrand, Amazon) and answer the following question. ¬†Would you like to read a sequel for Charon’s Dilemma, Platypus (from Discovery) and/or Coil Me Up?

And yeah, eventually I’ll get back to my blog story Elf Magic too. ūüôā

Signing off.



EDIT: I should really put a time limit on these contests…. It will be chosen by Random.org and you have until the end of November (11/30/2015 11:59 PM EST)

Another week goes by…

Well…I planned to have another installment of Elf Magic ready for today.

Didn’t quite pan out. ūüėČ

Instead, I scheduled a few posts, updated my nook, rummaged around Facebook, grabbed another book to review, updated stuff on Goodreads (see Charon’s Dilemma, my free read I published with Goodreads MM Romance Group), and posted a review on my blog. ¬†There’s also work, backing up my personal computer because I’ve read about the horror stories on Faceback with losing your WIPs and writings. ¬†I’m in IT, so I know better anyway. ¬†Luckily, Dropbox or Google Drive is your friend. Evernote too. And, multiple redundant backup solutions. ūüôā

I will have to see if I can post another installment this weekend.  However, being on call for work will either prevent or promote this endeavor. *grin*

Now, I’m going to be really geeky and play a computer game…



It’s posted! Finally…

It’s official. ¬†I’m finally a published author. Yay, me! ¬†8/25/2014 will live for all time.


It posted yesterday. ¬†I looked, I swear. ¬†Didn’t see it. ūüôā


I have been having internet trouble so it’s possible it didn’t update.




Think you can find it? *big smile*


You do have to be a member to see read it. ¬†You can also go here:¬†http://www.mmromancegroup.com/. ¬†All of the posts prior to last week and current week will have ebooks for download. ¬†To see the original descriptions and pictures, you will have to be a member of the group. ¬†Go join. ¬†It’s worth it. ūüėÄ


To celebrate my published author status, I’m giving away a $15 gift card (ARe, Amazon, B&N) to a lucky commentator on this post. ¬†Post and let me know if you liked the story or not. ¬†Let’s see if we can get more followers too. ¬†If I can reach 100 followers by September 1st, I will give away an additional $15 gift card to the 100th follower…


Thanks, and good luck,




As an update (because I didn’t put a time limit originally), let’s say all commentators who post by the end of September (9/30/14 11:59p) will be eligible for the contest. ¬†And I will extend the 100th follower additional contest to then as well. -Eloreen

Musings from the Moon

Well, the scheduled date for Charon’s Dilemma was supposed to be August 15th, but that didn’t happen. ¬†It has been rescheduled for a date coming up very soon. I still can’t tell you when but I will be posting as soon as I see it. ūüôā

So, you can watch for it here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/group_folder/230111?group_id=20149 (must be a member to view it) to see it as soon as it releases.

The¬†Moonbeams over Atlanta 100 blog posts contest ended and I, finally, got to send the winner her gift card to Amazon. ¬†She should have it by now as I just emailed it to her…

This past week at work has been insane. ¬†Internet has not helped. ¬†When getting a phone call on the house line can kick you off internet…you know you have a problem with the lines…

Dragon Con is coming next week.  And there is a move in my future.  Good news is it is to a spiffy, updated house and better internet.  Bad news is the move part.

This writer is going to bed before I fall over.

Hopefully work will slow down a bit and I can post more. ¬†I do have more blogs to host and a few reviews to do. ¬†Keep watching and maybe I’ll get some writing going…maybe a freebie on the blog. ūüôā

I enjoy freebies from my favorite authors. ¬†Not that I’ve had a lot of time to read. Maybe the beginning of September I’ll start posting a work in progress. ¬†Then maybe, I can finish something else.


Night Night



Another new beginning…and an update

Well, I started my new full-time job¬†this week. ¬†It’s going to be interesting. ¬†Have to get back into the swing of things and ramp up for long days and nights. ¬†It’s just that kind of job.

Not sure how much writing I’m going to be doing for awhile, but I hope to get back to the swing of things once work settles down.

Good news, though! ¬†Charon’s Dilemma will be published soon. ¬†I can’t tell you when, but you should keep an eye out for when I post about it once it releases.

So, watch for it here:¬†https://www.goodreads.com/topic/group_folder/230111?group_id=20149 (must be a member to view it) to see it as soon as it releases. ¬†I’ll post it here, too. ¬†ūüôā

For the ebook fans, the ebooks will release within a week after it posts to the group. ¬†I’ll post about that, too. ¬†Because you KNOW I’m going to go grab my copy of it. *big grin*

Can I say that I’m excited?

On a blog note, Moonbeams over Atlanta has reached 100 blog posts. ¬†There is a contest here¬†and ends 8/13/2014. ¬†The post will tell you how to enter. ¬†It does have a question relating to the tour post it’s on so you will have to look at the tour. ¬†So, go. ¬†Enter. ¬†There’s a giveaway for a $10 gift card to the ARe, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble retailer of your choice…

You know you want to…


Signing off.

Best of all: It’s Free!

To see them as they release, join the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads. ¬†The Love’s Landscape link above will get you to the folder where they are all at. ¬†Later this summer (maybe fall), the eBook versions and the Anthologies will release.

Go read.  I will be.
