Greetings all of you! Queen here. Hope everyone’s 2019 has started off happy.
I thought my biggest surprise was the release of R.I.P.(E). back in October. It was my first independent release since Life-O-Suction back in late 2015.
The inspiration for R.I.P.(E). came to me in a dream—a vision so powerful that it had to be converted to words. It also came out the same time as fellow author Y. Correa’s work Peter Blade. There were similarities between our two works, and it was awesome for us to do a dual release.
After R.I.P.(E)., I believed that I was taken a small rest, minus my work appearing in the upcoming 2nd installment of the Divergent Ink series “Pleasure Prints”. During this time, I started reading some of my short stories from other collections. Like next door neighbors or old friends, the question arose, “I wonder what happened to such and such?”. Initially, I concluded the sensations as being fleeting, choosing to leave it alone.
Yet the question stayed with me, along with characters I wondered about the most. Soon, more words formed (which would eventually be the titles), quickly followed by old characters with new stories to tell.
Lo and behold, a short story collection was born.
I don’t want to give away too much now. Perhaps it will be more fun to take some time on the back story… “the makings of”, if you will.
Stay tuned tomorrow where I will share more about this exciting project.
