Update: beating the blues, short story contracts etc

I posted a few weeks ago about how I was struggling with anxiety/confidence and it was really getting me down. I had a few weeks of feeling pretty horrible, so I’m happy to report that I’ve been on the up since Christmas.
Feeling happyTaking a proper break from writing (that wasn’t going well) and focusing on family/friends/myself has helped a lot. Since the start of January I’ve been more productive again and am feeling much happier.
So, I’m thrilled to be able to check in with some good news. This week I’ve signed two contracts for two short stories that will be published in anthologies at Dreamspinner Press.
 
The first one is a short, erotic piece for the Juicy Bits anthology which will be out on April 28th. It features a hot Scottish boss, office sex and spanking 😉
The second is a slightly longer story for the Not Quite Shakespeare anthology–a collection of stories set in the UK. This will be out on June 2nd. I was thrilled that this one was accepted because I really loved writing it. It’s set at a folk festival and has a sexy morris dancer in it. Tall, broad, long dark hair, beard, knows his way around a stick… you get the gist.
Finally, last week I returned my galley edits for Not Just Friends and am excited about that being out soon. Less than four weeks to go now!
