I'm mostly published under the pen name Jules Jones. I also write erotica under the name Storm Duffy, who has a website of her very own. You can buy my books directly from the publishers, primarily Loose Id and NineStar Press. You can also find many of my titles at third party retailers, including for Jules Jones Amazon UK, Amazon US, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, iTunes, and various resellers.

If I understand what I'm looking at, you can also find my author pages on other national Amazon sites, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Japan, and book list pages on Amazon Canada .

Work in progress

Or not in progress, as the case may be. Most of this isn't being actively worked on at any particular time. It's stuff that will happen eventually, and in many cases there's a significant chunk of it already in existence. Things that show up in this section are often short stories or novelettes that will be reworked into novels. I've got a bad habit of starting to write a short story for an anthology, and ending up with something that gets accused by beta-readers and editors of being the synopsis for a novel. If it's listed here, they can see what its current status is without nagging me about it.

The baronetcy story - contemporary m/m/f novel. This is the novel length Thing that has been occupying my brain for the last couple of years, after I started writing a short story. Various editors can stop sniggering, thanks. It's been 5000 words to go for the last 30k, but as of the end of 2016 I think it genuinely is only 5k words to go to the end of the first draft.

In Like Flynn, the rest of it. The observant may have noticed a series title on A Collision with Reality. "Where's the rest of it?" people have said (possibly soon to include my editor if I don't get on with it). Er - I appear to be writing it backwards. There's a substantial chunk written of the last two out of a likely six stories. The ones in between are another matter.

Taxman -- urban fantasy set in contemporary London. Subject of a whine in rasfc about not sure whether it's one for an sf publisher or a romance publisher, but currently being aimed at the latter.

Lord and Master 3 -- I have a plot and the first 15 18 kwords. It may be a while before there's any more than that.

Buildup 3 -- I will write it one day. I swear I will...

Work not in progress

"He's dead, Jim." Some things are now in the "abandoned" category, for various reasons.

Dec 2011: In particular, it's highly unlikely that most of the partials co-written with Alex will ever be finished -- she's been seriously ill, is effectively unable to write commercial fiction for the forseeable future, and will probably not be able to pick up several of our joint projects even when she recovers. One of them I might be able to finish solo, but most of them were very much the product of the interaction between us. I might put up the fragment of the Syndicate honeymoon story that exists, if the beta-readers say that what's there is worth reading as is. (ETA Jan 2012 - the Syndicate honeymoon fragment and writers' notes are now available on the site.)
