i get so excited for new writing projects holy poop

I really do.

So now that poopingrainbows.com is humming along nicely, I feel like it’s time to tackle something else.

It’s time for some fiction.

It’s time for a new novel.

I’ve had a character in my head for ages, but I wasn’t sure what to do with him. I actually started a novel a while back, but I just didn’t like the story. It felt forced. Gimmicky.

But.

The right story hit me recently.

I can tell because entire scenes popped into my head.

I played with it a little.

Liking it, but not love loving it.

Then it dawned on me what would make it even more awesome.

A collaborator!

I don’t want to give any of the story away, but I realized adding a female voice to it could take it from good, to something really, really cool.

And not just any voice.

I’ve somehow talked the ridiculously talented Eleni Zoe into joining forces. If you’re not reading her, you are absolutely missing out.

And if you are familiar with her writing, you know what a coup it is to get her on board any project.

We’re in early stages yet. I just sent her a first draft of the first chapter.

But, if we do this like we’re capable of doing this, I think you kids could be in for quite a treat.
