Cynthia A. Hudson
Just another dreamer
Cynthia Hudson is a freelance writer, Indie eBook author, and novelist.
She writes under several pen names, Cynthia Hudson for general fiction, C.A. Keane for the darker paranormal, and Emily Keane for her sexier romances.
With a taste for the macabre and a psyche that works just a little different from everyone else's, she can often be found wandering in the dark corners of her own mind.
A Bird came down the Walk—
He did not know I saw—
He bit an Angleworm in halves
And ate the fellow, raw,
And then he drank a Dew
From a convenient Grass—
And then hopped sidewise to the Wall
To let a Beetle pass—
He glanced with rapid eyes
That hurried all around—
They looked like frightened Beads, I thought,
He stirred his Velvet Head
Like one in danger, Cautious,
I offered him a Crumb
And he unrolled his feathers
And rowed him softer home—
Than Oars divide the Ocean,
Too silver for a seam—
Or Butterflies, off Banks of Noon
Leap, plashless as they swim.
~ Emily Dickinson
Welcome to May!!!
I know that no one wants to think about it, but the year is nearly half over already. I have no idea where the time has gone or why it is passing so quickly but there is no indication that it is going to be slowing down any time soon.
New books! I am working like crazy and I am hoping that my editor has one in his hands before long. I may have a final revision to The Sandman as well so if you have already downloaded it please check back here for more information on any updates.
My first novel, Where Dreams Begin, was reformatted for all eReaders and is now available on Smashwords and Amazon. Sometime in the next couple of weeks it should be available directly through the iTunes, Barnes & Noble and Kobo sites as well.
I am also revising my second novel as Cynthia A. Hudson, currently titled Picture Me Home. I finished it several years ago but never got further than the first complete draft. There were a couple of things I didn’t like and wasn’t quite sure how to fix them but now, with a clearer head, I would love to get this out there. I loved the story and characters while I was writing it but it got lost somehow in the shuffle of everything else. I’ll let you know how that goes!
Okay, one last thing.
I just want to have a proud aunt moment and brag a bit about one of my favorite family members. My nephew, Don, received a book deal from a publisher I think just over a year ago but the publisher was interested in turning his one book into a trilogy. Don has been working diligently on the book proposals for the trilogy and a couple of days ago after a meeting in New York with everyone involved, they now want to make it a five book series! I am beyond proud of him and so excited for him that this is all coming his way. I am not positive what his pen name is, but I do believe Hudson is in there somewhere. ;) As soon as I find out about the release date, etc. I will post it here as well as on Facebook. Go Don!!!
I think that’s it from the home front this month. Everyone have a terrific May, and a safe and wonderful Memorial Day!
See you in June!
