Monday, err, Tuesday Musings: A Taste of What’s to Come

So the things we have learned this past day are obvious, mainly to always ensure one’s alarm is set when living a new, non-standard sleep schedule.  I did warn that some posts might be coming later, but I don’t think a whole day later is covered by that.  For this, I apologize profusely.

To make up for that, let’s do something a bit more substantial than the usual weekly ramble.  How about we put up a little smidge of my next novel (still untitled, yo!), a fantasy mystery romance post-magical-apocalypse film noire tale with some cyberpunk influences.  Remember, this is still first draft stuff but I hope you enjoy all the same!

Monday Musings: New Book Series, New Readers a.k.a. Beta Readers Needed!

Okay, literary foodies, I need to call upon some assistance!  You see, I think I’ve hit critical mass to start getting a proper group of alpha/beta readers together.  It is something completely different than the other novel series I have written and I’m looking for as much input as possible.

The book itself is a fantasy mystery romance LGBT drama set in a post-magical-apocalypse world with film noire and cyberpunk influences.  I don’t want to delve much into it as there is still fluidity in the course of the plot (I’m about a third of the way through the book).  If what you have seen here interests you so far, then contact me at jbgarner58@gmail.com and I will tell you more!

Sorry for the brevity today, but I am starting to work a few overnight shifts each week so, yeah, time to shift my sleep schedule.  Expect more later this week!

Until next time, good reading, good writing, and good luck!

Book News: New Projects and A Strange Plea a.k.a. My Apology, No Comedy Title Today

No alumni Starving Interview today, folks, though I hope to rectify this next week!  Instead, we present an offer of new things in the future, followed by yours truly begging at your feet like a kicked puppy.  AWESOME!

Right, let’s start with the less embarrassing part.  My latest writing project, the start of a brand new series, has actually begun.  There is a lot about this new book that stray away from the works I’ve done in the past, but I think that will give this series a unique place in my portfolio.  I think it’s too early yet to start dropping teasers and such, but if you’re a fan of fantasy mystery romance post-magical-apocalypse LGBT dramas with film noire and cyberpunk influences, you’ll want to read this one.  If that giant pile of mish-mash appeals to you, then feel free to contact me directly via e-mail (jbgarner58@gmail.com) or through any social media and we’ll see if you want to take the plunge to be an alpha/beta reader!  Otherwise, expect the first full blown teasers, as well as the rough drafts of the first few ‘chapters’, next month.
