Health Update

If all my nurses and doctors could look like the above picture I’d find more reasons than just a fluttering heart to go into the hospital!

You may have seen my posts over the previous few days.  I had to go into the Emergency Room for heart trouble last Thursday.  I spent the entire day in the ER basically and came home to rest.  Then promised I’d take the entire weekend off.  I had no choice.  It was pretty bad this time around and next time I’ll go in sooner.  Spending 14+ hours in Afib is NOT fun.

But this week I have a neurologists appointment (today actually) and I see my cardiologist on the 24th.  For the record this is only the first trip to the ER this year.  Last year I was in twice, once for my heart and another time for nerve issues.

Writers in general aren’t healthy people.  It’s not that we don’t try, many of us do.  It’s just that sometimes shit gets in the way.  Overworking, stress, emotional issues, living issues, and for a select few, abuse issues (chemical) cause problems but still we persevere to put out the books you’ve come to love and enjoy.

This is NOT an easy industry and if I COULD do something else it wouldn’t help.  I’d be in music, HA!

At any rate, I’m working on Saint in Sinner’s Eyes and am halfway through it.  Saritza assures me that it’ll only take a little more work to get Burning for Derrick where she wants it and then we can start pushing it to publishers and editors.  She’s pretty pleased with it and that  makes me feel really damn good.

After I finish Saint in Sinner’s Eyes I’ll post a few unedited excerpts for your pleasure.

New cover art!

If you remember my previous post about story sales, you know that I sold a story to Decadent Publishing!  The Playground (release date TBD but probably sometime in January or February of 2012) is the story I wrote detailing the exploits of a man who found his long lost love working in a Las Vegas hotel.  Using the infamous 1NightStand matchmaking service, he sets up a date with her and arranges to have her meet him on his terms at a public, semi secluded playground in a park.

He has the one chance to convince her that they should be together.  Can he?  Shelly is quite lonely and fed up with her life, but the only man who ever loved her was weird, insisting that she through away her traditional viewpoint of the world and play by his rules.  Those rules involved chains and whips and the oh so sensual tone of his commanding voice…

Well, here’s the cover art!

Newest Release by Sascha Illyvich, erotic romance author at Decadent Publishing

It’s pretty damn good!  I’m looking forward to releasing this story. On the heels of it are two more pieces I’m aiming for, thanks to the encouragement of Valerie Mann and Kate Richards.

The stories are 10k at the most though my next one might push 12k.  We’ll see.  I’m having a lot of fun rekindling the inspiration and muse through all the reading I’ve been doing, plus the editing I do for Sizzler Editions.  And new music doesn’t hurt either ;)
