Working, working!

So, I've made a little more progress on THE BET. I'm not comfortable with setting an exact release date yet, but I'm getting closer.

I'm almost done with a short story that I plan to release along with THE BET. It's called COMMUNICATION, and it's going to be a short story starring a minor character from THE BET. All that I have left to write in this story is a short, mild sex scene and the very last paragraphs of the ending. Originally this was going to be a very porny piece, but I have come to realize that I don't do well with sex scenes. I don't have any sexual experience myself, and the truth is, unless I'm reading the story expressly for the sex, I'd rather the author do a fade-to-black or a non-explicit scene. I'd like to target the Parapolice series to a more mainstream audience, and I think that for that I'm going to go with more traditional romance novel style sex scenes. Minus the purple prose, of course!

Perhaps someday I will enjoy writing erotica, but until then, I think THE BROKEN and POWERLESS shall be my only forays into the genre.
