My muse is going crazy

Just when I thought I had my schedule well planned in advance, my muse is going nuts with a new idea. LOL Isn't that just the way it goes? I mean, this has to happen to other writers, right? I can't be the only one.

My plan was to re-release Till the Break of Dawn, then put out Dracula: In the Flesh a week later. Friday the 13th is perfect for a Dracula release, isn't it? Then, in December re-release Three Days of Night and possibly work on the next Lilith Mercury book in January.

Oh, and I've got several books that need a print edition. I was going to be working on those between the other projects. Once most of this was crossed off my list, I was going to go back to working on Bound by Blood.

That was the plan. The problem is I've got a new idea that just won't shut up. It keeps talking to me, whispering the most interesting things in my ear, like a little devil on my shoulder. I've been pushing it aside since June. I keep saying, "I've got too much else to work on. I can't start another project right now." You know what it says? "You can't resist me." And maybe I can't.

This is another erotic horror that will be written as T.K. Hardin. I would say what the subject of the book is, but I don't want to reveal anything too soon. I may have created a monster when I started writing as T.K. Hardin. Ha. Ha.

The plan now (as of this moment) is to hurry up and finish Three Days of Night. That would mean that Till the Break of Dawn, Dracula: In the Flesh, AND Three Days of Night would be totally ready to go. This would free me up (HA!) to write through December, at least. Of course, I'll still be working on Dracula's final edits for another week or so, not to mention a huge blog tour/promo. Again, most of that work is already done.

Damn. I'm tired just thinking about it. Stupid muse. I love what I do, and I never thought I would say this, but I wish that dark, sexy man would stop telling me his story. Okay, I really don't. I just wish he had better timing. ;)

Oh, and today is my publishing anniversary! Six years ago today my very first novel, Red, was published. Maybe his timing is better than I thought. And maybe I should stop typing and take notes. This guy has a lot to say. LOL
