June Updates

Biters, Sweet Dreamers, Readers and Listeners,

Hope the summer is treating you well. I’ve been pretty busy lately at cons and such, and have seen many of you there, so thank you for supporting my career and being interested in my new work. I am so blessed to have a nice group of readers who email me and continue to be involved. 🙂

While I was amid the craziness of con-itis, I had a new release with my fellow writer, Heather Roulo and a brand new novelette in the Anime Girl Series! So lets run down the stats, shall we?


  • ruinsbig4√  Rich and Roulo, Vol. 2 : RUINS is now available on Kindle.
    This is a great mix of my “Mummy” story and Heather’s “Great Asp” tale, along with a scary goddess poem.
    Authors Emerian Rich and H. E. Roulo come together to bring you Rich & Roulo, a fiction series harkening back to vaudevillian days where madness bordered on greatness, misery became wisdom, and beauty was found in even the most broken doll.
    In Rich and Roulo’s second volume, the woeful tale of a kidnapped princess and the story of an unwilling hero, join the poem of an ancient and powerful goddess to bring you RUINS. Set in exotic locations, these fables explore earthly concerns of love and life against a backdrop of death. The volume makes you wonder, once death has you, is there anything left? Or were we ruins to begin with?
  • AG2Final√  Anime Girl 2 available on Kindle. For those of you who loved the first tale, Abby and Chase are back in a brand new tale!
    Bestselling manga author, Abby Tanaka, is in love with her talent manager, Chase. It’s been three weeks since they met for the first time at an anime conference in Los Angeles. Now, she’s travelling to San Francisco for another con, and plans to have a weekend of romance with Chase. As of yet, they have only kissed, but Abby has drawn a few places their relationship could go.
    Arriving at the hotel early seems like a good idea, but when Abby finds out Chase will be spending most of the weekend catering to sexy SciFi movie star, Tosh James, all her plans for a romantic weekend go down the drain. Not only is Tosh every girlfriend’s worst nightmare, but her wicked charms and low-cut outfits threaten to make Chase forget Abby altogether.
    Will Abby lose the man of her dreams to the sultry Tosh? Or will her character Emiko inspire her to win him back?

October Updates

Wow… looking at this list and the sidebar of word counts, I realize… I am so behind on updating everyone on news!!! So here it goes.

  • √  Artistic License – Ready to order and don’t miss my extra freebies pack! Podnovel version coming soon! 🙂
  • Vampire short story, anthology was cancelled — grrr! Am looking for a new market for this.
  • √  “Haunted Item” short story is awesome — submitted to new market, waiting for answer.
  • √  GothHaus 3, The Gothmazing Race – COMPLETED! Last episode will air on #84… incidentally our season finale, so that means I get a little time off and then time to finish up all these loose ends.
    • Undecided, the 4th book in the Sweet Dreams Series is completed!  I need to have time at the computer to put it in so I can podcast later this year.
    • I am also reading, One More Try, the 5th book in the Sweet Dreams Series. It is needing some adjustments because of the way Undecided ended up, but because I have basically the whole book written, it should be fast going. I would estimate I am about 6 Chapters in.
    • Dusk Warriors, the vampire sequel to Night’s Knights is still going on podcast. Almost done. I estimate 1-2 casts left to wrap that puppy up!
  • Horror Disaster Anthology is coming along nicely. We are in the formatting stage and the target of late 2012 seems to be pretty right on.
  • o.o I forgot about this story! I wonder where it is!? “This is a Demons do Bad Things on Halloween story. Challenging myself to stay under 1000 words. Can I do it?”
  • Gorey flash fiction piece. Challenging myself to 500 words only. Can I do it? I’m about 200 words in. Choosing words very carefully.
  •  √  Wrote a 100 word story for’s 100 word story episode. And I did write about a bird… “I am sort of digging birds right now. Black shiny ones that can peck out your eyes and get caught in your hair.” But not like you might think. Listen to #82 to hear this.
  • I’m starting a couple new projects with my friend H. E. Roulo. Too soon to talk about one. The other… well, it’s soon too, but let’s just say it’s going ot be for your Kindle and boy are you going to get excited when I tell you about it!

For all of you into the word count thing, I’ve updated my list to the left!
Happy reading!
