A copy of January's email update.
This is a very long update. It will be awhile before I share another one, so I hope you have the time to read it.
Finding Her Luck, first published on Wattpad, will be out at the end of January. I am working on expanding my short story, Proper Behavior, from the Auctioned Omegaverse Anthology that is no longer in print and have one more Orki War Bride story planned, with the intention of closing out the story lines to this world to everyone’s satisfaction.
Caught—Balancing Magic is currently frozen on Wattpad in rewrites. This started out an Omegaverse romance with a bit of a twist and has now become something much bigger. Slow burn, detailed world, with developed side characters. At this point I have three books planned to finish out the story.
I have two couples and a prequel planned, but the word count will be high. This story is for those of you who like your romance with a lot of character development and adventure. It is the kind of book I wanted to write after reading authors like C. L. Wilson, Patricia Briggs, Anne Bishop, and Robin Hobb.
Don’t worry. The romance will be as epic as the fantasy, and the sex as kinky and original as I can make it. If I am going to write fantasy… it is going to have its over the top moments.
Alphas – Yes. There will be more Alphas. After the Balancing Magic books are finished, we will be going back to the 12 Sectors.
As much as Constantine Kane loves his world, he understands that there are problems and that he cannot simply kill off. Sasha stands beside him, raising their children, a steady advocate for drone and breed beta alike. She will never forget those who loved her from her childhood, or those siblings that disappeared into the 12 Sectors.
Kane’s younger brother, Nothonal Darre, has stepped back into his rightful family role. Darre will always be his brother’s rival and his father’s wounded son, even as he learns to navigate and work with them. With Naya’s help, Darre will not let anyone blind themselves to the issues that need to be addressed if the breed are going to be successful governing themselves and the drones who live among them.
There are other children of Rhineholth and Analise who have their own destinies to find. One of them is Merdion, also known as Merrick. Some readers hate him. Some readers hope for him. Rest assured, he will have his book.
I will not start a new world until I have finished those I have already built. If I had known you liked my writing, I would have been more careful about the order I was writing in. But I do have more omegaverse trope ideas and other deviations written out in my journals.
I will have a new website soon with the simple address: Isoellen.com. Building a website is both a blessing and a curse. Once I am no longer on the blogger platform, I lose my ability to alter some things as I choose, but moving sites will give me greater functionality.
Why visit my website:
The website will be my home base. Here you will find exclusive free content and, at some point, a special subscription area.
Free content includes:
Under The Books Tab
One of a kind character narration read and acted by voice artists. These are snippets in time from the mind of the character that may or may not mirror a scene from the book you read. Some of them will be very sexy and something you will want to listen to privately, and some of them will be a slice of life look into the thoughts of one of the main characters. I am very much hoping to expand this feature. It is something, personally, that I love. I hope you readers enjoy it as well.
You can connect to things like my podcast, my other social media accounts, and all the groups I play in when I am not writing.
You will find my naughty romantic poetry, some gorgeous artistic erotic photos by friends I have made on my journey.
Blog posts from my life and adventures as I choose to LIVE big, bold and alive during the second half of my life. If you are one of my beloved stalkers, you know I made some big decisions in 2020. They were hard and risky choices, and I do not know what the outcome will look like. As I have time, some of this journey will show up for you to read too.
The subscription feature is yet to come. I still have some ideas as to how I will use it. I love the idea of a mentorship program, or a VIP reader room. I would love to create a Sector community of our own, where we can chat, interact, be real and dream big.
You are amazing. If you made it to the end of this long post. I love you even more for your curiosity and patience.
What I've been up to.
I have been up to many things. Unfortunately, one of them isn’t a lot of book writing. Too many distractions. Covid, family, to-do lists, personal growth, side projects, podcasting, deviations, promotions, art projects, letter writing, that one damn squirrel and a little bit of stress have all made it difficult to focus.
But Iso has a plan. I have pre-recorded a lot of podcasts, settled some family things, and slowed down on the side projects and given writing the priority for the next three or four months. I am going to descend into the writing cave (my head) and stay there until I have lots and lots of things finished. I am serious. I may even log out of social media.
Some things you should know: I will try to post podcasts on Fridays at Isoellen Writes Adult Story Time. Search for me on most podcasting platforms to find me. There is also a built in player in the media section of this website.
You will be able to find my work: poems and the short story, Sophie and Micah, in the Indulgent Desires Magazine. Click here to check that out. IndulgentDesires.com
Sophie and Micha will be behind the pay wall, however, so you will need a subscription. I have loved working with this team. It has given me a chance to add pictures and audio to my words, and that was a goal I had in 2020.
And I am hoping to release Finding Her Luck in January. Because ownership of the short story Proper Behavior from the Auctioned Anthology will come back to me, I will be expanding the story Proper Behavior to release as a short novel. I am not sure if there will be more books in this universe, but I can guarantee at least these two.
Yes. Merrick will get a book, but not until I have finished- Caught – Balancing Magic. Did you know you can watch my progress and read my rough draft on Wattapad? Check out my profile here: Isoellen's Wattpad
Also, I hope to create more audio narrations for Darre and Naya.
So now I have the goals and just need to accomplish them. Fingers crossed!
