Ramblings/Drabbles/BLEGH

Hey everybody! Sorry for the delay in posting! My internet has been down for a few days, but now I’m up and running again! WOO!

BIG NEWS! Strapped For Cash is coming out June 11th! I am super excited to share this book with you guys, and I can’t wait for you all to get to know Roger and Mickey. I’m super duper RIDICULOUSLY pumped for this release. Like OMG. I’ve been planning this book for months, and it’s finally here!

Also! Quick heads up! If you haven’t snagged a copy of the Taking A Chance Anthology, do it now! It’s only gonna be available through July 22nd so the clock is ticking! Remember it’s for a super awesome cause! All proceeds are going to the AIDs Healthcare Foundation! <333

There’s more super exciting news for all my tentacle fans, too. There will be not just one but TWO new tentacle books this year! Head Over Tentacles (#3) comes out August 24th and Nautilus Than Perfect (#4) comes out this October. I’m waiting for an official release date for Nautilus, but I will post that plus all the preorder links as soon as I can.

Now I know a lot of people were disappointed by Grell’s magnificent hemi-penes, but I promise that these next two stories are jam packed with sexy tentacle goodness. The rest of the SFL series is all tentacles, I swear! Well, except ONE more very special book that I can’t tell you about.

OKAY but maybe I’ll just say that this is the book that used to be #3 and got bumped to #8… because it would totally give away who the Kindress is so I decided to move it. There are no tentacles in it – sorry! – but it is a veryyy important part of the series.

I’m almost done editing Just Calamarried (#5) and once I’m finished with A Quick Buck, I’ll switch from mafia shenanigans back to tentacle land to start on #6. This is one I’ve been looking forward to foreverrrr because it’s the book for Alexander, Rota, and Ollie. I know you haven’t met all of these guys yet (you’ll meet Alexander and Rota in #3, Ollie in #4), but trust me. It’s gonna be great.

Speaking of mafia stuff, I gotta say… it’s time to say goodbye to Jimmy and Boss Cold. CHC #5 is going to be the last of my sweet boys, and this was a really hard decision to make. Got some time? I’m gonna tell you all about it!

First and foremost, I’ve learned SO MUCH about writing since I published Cold Hard Cash. It’s actually hard for me to read it now because I just cringe. The hanging modifiers, the repetitive sentence structure, the adverb abuse, the word PURR, agh! I know that I can write so much better than that now, and I think it shows as the series has gone on. I’m getting better and better with every book I write, and I’m still constantly trying to improve my craft.

More than that, it’s the fan fiction connection that continues to gut me. The series started as fan fic. A lot of my early books did. It’s not exactly a secret. Ahem. Boss Cold? Come on. The problem that I have now is that the second I say anything was fan fic, whether it was a drabble that went on to be a novel or a fully filed story of my own creation, the perceived value of my work drops exponentially. The quality of what I wrote becomes insignificant, and I am being judged by the cruel measuring stick of “oh, but it was fan fiction”. My plot, the pacing, the steamy scenes, everything, all of it suddenly becomes meaningless.

That sucks.

No matter how much I love Jimmy and Boss Cold and the world I created, I want to move on. It’s just like my love for fandom. I will always love that part of my life and all the great things it has given me (hello there, 90’s queer awakening), but it’s not a good space for me now. It hurt me. Constantlyyy. It was an endless black hole and no matter what I did, I couldn’t keep my head up. The fun was gone, and there was not enough good to outweigh how much the bad sucked.

So. I left. I made the choice to leave. I don’t write fan fiction now because it’s like pissing in a barrel with a hole in it. I know that’s a super harsh analogy and I mean absolutely no disrespect to anyone who writes/reads fic — this was MY most recent experience of it and ultimately what killed any desire to write it ever again. I was in fandom for over twenty years, but wow… Maybe it’s just me and my lil’ feelings being extra squishy, but fan peeps have gotten kinda nasty. I simply don’t have the mental energy to deal with it.

It’s not worth it.

Just like continuing a series that hurts me, no matter how beloved it is by my fans, is not worth it. It doesn’t matter what else I write for Jimmy and Cold, what I create for them, or how hard I try—it all comes right back to fandom, and yeah, wow, it still hurts. I’m sorry that I’m not a machine that can ignore the mean comments and reviews cracking about it being fic, but as a very wise author once said, it only takes one turd to spoil a bowl of Cheerios. So, that’s it. Just like I had to say goodbye to fandom, so too will I say goodbye to Jimmy and Cold.

Tl;dr I am going on to write lots of brand new and exciting naughty things in my own little bubble, and that’s that. People will still drop turds in my bowl, they always do, but they won’t be able to shit on me about fandom stuff. I can finally close that chapter of my writing career for good and move on. Fresh bits. Good meat. Let’s go.

I promise that I will give the boys a HEA, and it will not be the last time we see them. There will be many more bonus scenes and spinoffs and all that, don’t worry. I know how much they mean to everyone, and I do understand. They mean a lot to me too, but you can love someone and not wanna be with them, you know?

Plus I had a random idea for ANOTHER spinoff that I can’t shake. If you’ve been following along in my social media, you already know that A Quick Buck is about Alistair Star, Cold’s dom that we meet in Strapped for Cash. But I remembered something I had written in CHC, sort of a throwaway line that Rowena says about there being a whole bunch of little Legrands running around Strassen. Rowena was the only one acknowledged because of her Italian mother, but it got me thinking…

What about Rowena and Cold having another sibling out there? Their father was a big ol’ man whore, so it’s very possible that they have a half-brother or half-sister running around that they don’t know about. And what if this half-brother or whoever figured out who he’s related to?

DUN DUN DUNNNNN!

I haven’t been able to get the idea out of my head, so I think there’s a BIG possibility of writing yet another CHC series. It won’t feature Cold or Jimmy as MC’s, but they’d be a part of the story for sure. I do love those guys, but sometimes I worry about them wearing out their welcome. I’ve been writing them for a long time. A very loooong time. And you know, I want to write new people, new stories, new stuff, new SMUT. So, yes, I will keep writing stories set in CHC’s world, but I am only going to write one more book with Cold and Jimmy as the MC’s.

Whew. Okay. That was a lot. If you’re still here with me, thank you! I’ve said some of this stuff before in my ramblings, but I really wanted to get all of this out. So, yeah. There it is. I mean, have you seen the future project list I’ve got going? LOL I have sooo much more to write, and I’m finally ready to say goodbye to my first boys. I will probably start the last book sometime this fall, but mehhhh? We’ll see what happens!

Thank you for all of your support and your love for my writing. I seriously couldn’t do any of this without you guys. Keep your eyeballs peeled for new preorder links and release info coming soon!

Stay safe!

It’s just Ted’s luck that he meets the love of his life while covered in the blood of a murder victim.

Funeral worker Ted Sturm has a foul mouth, a big heart, and a knack for communicating with the dead. Unfortunately the dead don’t make very good friends, and Ted’s only living pal, his roommate, just rescued a strange cat who’s determined to make his life even more miserable. This cat is more than he seems, and soon Ted finds himself in an alternate dimension… and on top of a dead body.

When Ted is accused of murder, his only ally in a strange world full of powerful magical beings calling for his head is King Grell, a sarcastic, randy, catlike immortal with impressive abilities… and anatomy. The two soon find themselves at the center of a cosmic conspiracy and surrounded by dangerous enemies. But with Ted’s special skills and Grell’s magic, they have a chance to get to the bottom of the mystery and save Ted. There’s just one problem: Ted’s got to resist Grell’s aggressive advances… and he isn’t sure he wants to.

Bonus Scene – Playing for Keeps

What happens when Jordan and Mateo decide to take things up a notch in the bedroom? Will it end in utter disaster or will they have a Hulkin’ good time?

“Mm, this is gonna be the last one for me.” Mateo raised the mug. “I’ve gotta head home after this.”

“Come on.” Jordan had brought the monstrous dildo along and stood it up in the middle of his coffee table. “What could you possibly have to do tomorrow?”

“Go over the inventory for the month, check the balances of the receiving accounts, get ready for quarterly taxes, and make sure Vera finished the new designs I asked her to.”

“Wow.” Jordan kicked his long legs over Mateo’s lap. “That sounds very, very boring.”

“Mmm.” Mateo rubbed Jordan’s bare foot and sipped his wine.

Jordan always looked so effortlessly attractive even while he was wearing paint splattered sweats and an old Rugrats t-shirt. Mateo wanted to stay, but he was simply too busy. He had a very tight schedule to keep, and he’d already let Jordan distract him too many times before.

He was strong. He had an iron will. He was going to sleep in his own bed tonight.

“I have a better idea.” Jordan grinned. “How about you stay here, we get all kinds of naked, and you fuck me with that Hulk dildo, huh?”

Damn him.

Mateo eyed the formidable toy, ignoring how much his cock was into the idea. “You really think you can take that?”

“Where there’s a will and shit ton of lube, there’s a way.”

“Is it even a Hulk cock now that it’s pink and purple?”

“You’re deflecting, but yes it is because his veiny Hulk essence is still there. It doesn’t matter what color he is. He’s the Hulk.”

“That’s very poetic, but I really need to be up early…”

Jordan rubbed the heel of his foot across Mateo’s crotch. “Me, you, Hulk. You know you wanna.”

“Don’t you have to finish the figures for that new Nocturnal Flying Mammal Person and Migratory Songbird Child gig?”

“Yeah, but this is much more important.” Jordan kept rubbing. “I’m teaching my boyfriend to be more spontaneous.”

“Jordan…”

Jordan batted his eyes.

“I was already spontaneous today.”

“Oh yeah, you ordered the baked ziti instead of the baked spaghetti.” Jordan pretended to shudder. “Ooo, you’re just so wild!”

“I am very wild, thank you.” Mateo grabbed Jordan’s roaming foot, pressing it down against his hard dick. He fixed him with a stern stare. “I am so wild, in fact, that I’m going to take you up on your little offer. I’ll fuck you with that toy until you’re a gaping, wet little mess… and then I’m going home.”

Jordan squeaked.

“Is that spontaneous enough for you?”

“Fuck yeah.”

Hey everybody! Lots of exciting things going on and omg I can’t believe how much has happened in a month! The Taking A Chance Anthology is out so you can go check out my short story “Playing for Keeps” and read a bunch of other awesome authors’ work, I’ve received a release date for Head Over Tentacles (8/24/2021 – preorder link is still pending but I will post it asap!), and Strapped for Cash was accepted by my erotica publisher and edits start next week! Whew! I’ve ALSO finished Nautilus Than Perfect and submitted it to my other publisher, so I’m waiting with fingers and toes crossed for it to be accepted.

So, that’s books 4/5 done for my Cold Hard Cash series and 5/9 done for Sucker for Love Mysteries so far! (Technically, it’s like 6/9 for SFL because I did already write #8 because oops but I’m not there yet since I’m submitting them in order!) I’m proud of myself for sticking to my guns and focusing on these two series. I really want to finish at least one of them before starting anything else. Jinn & Tonic is gonna go on the back burner for a little while, but I won’t forget it. I’m just distracted by tentacles and gangsters right now.

Speaking of gangsters, I have started the outline for the new mafia series that is a spin-off from CHC. I don’t even know who reads this blog so what the hell! Here’s some exclusive juicy info: It’s going to feature Alistair Star as one of the MC’s, a man you meet in Strapped for Cash who was Cold’s closest friend, lover, and former dom. Obviously, they’re not together when Jimmy Poe comes around, but you’ll have to read Strapped to find out what happens to them…

The new book is all about a bratty young man named Noah Allan who has to pay a debt… huh, wait, that sounds kinda familiar. But this debt isn’t money. It’s blood. The man he owes is Alistair Star, a ruthless businessman who has connections to the mob and wants revenge. He believes Noah’s uncle killed one of his own, and Noah is gonna pay the price… one way or another.

Hope that sounds interesting and fun to you guys! It’s gonna be sexy and crazy, and I can’t wait to get started! I’m finishing up some exciting little bonus scenes for Strapped for Cash and a follow-up for my short story from the Taking A Chance Anthology PLUS a special birthday surprise for a dear friend. Once that’s all done, it’s mafia time! After I finish that, I will probably head back to Sucker for Love land to work on #6, and then… I will start the final Jimmy and Boss Cold book. <333

Thank you guys for all of your support and love! Don’t forget to check out Kraken My Heart when it comes out on the 18th and keep your eyes peeled for Strapped for Cash‘s release date! Thank you!

Stay safe, darlings!

Happy April, my darlings! I hope you are all doing well! I’ve been staying busy and writing my brain into the ground in the best possible way. Friendly reminder that Wishes for Rohi is available now for your reading pleasure, and Taking A Chance comes out later this month! And then next month is Kraken My Heart! AH! ALL DE BOOKS! Whew! I’ve talked about wanting to keep this momentum going, and I am definitely going to try. I’m currently editing the rough draft of Strapped for Cash with the awesome Jen Griffin of Marked and Read, and I’m hopinnnnng to have this submitted by the end of the week, eh, maybe early next week.

I’ve also started the rough draft of Just Calamarried, SFL #5! My boys Sloane and Loch are back again and are navigating a new mystery while preparing for the arrival of a very unexpected little surprise. It is going well so far, and I’m hoping to finish the rough draft by the end of the month. Also also, because I may be insane, I have put Love Included, Heart Not Required into the capable paws of Abbie Nicole. She is going to use her super beta powers to help me turn this short story into a full novel, and I can’t wait to share this one with you. It has robots and weird robot sexy times and golden hearts and agh! I love this story, but I always hesitated to mess with it myself because honestly…? I didn’t know where to start. It just got too overwhelming, and I’d give up.

But now I have professional help so yay! XD

While I’m working away at the SFL Mysteries and editing everything ever, I’m also plotting my next gangster series. Okay, yes, I said I wasn’t gonna start any new series until I finished at least one of the many I’m working on right now BUT HEAR ME OUT! There’s a special character who debuts in Strapped for Cash who also will appear in the last Cold Hard Cash book – so – it makes sense in my brain to write his first book before starting the last Jimmy and Cold story.

The last Jimmy and Cold story. Damn, that’s weird as hell to write.

Anyway!

With that logic, I am probably most definitely very likely gonna be writing another MM mafia series with a brand new couple. One of them is the aforementioned special character, and well… He was Cold’s dom. <333 I’m very excited to write his story, and that should be next after I finish SFL #5/while I’m poking away at Love Included. Beyond that, I am super cereal serious about staying on task to finish at least one freakin’ series.

I mean it. I’m not gonna do it. I’m strong. Like bear. RAWR.

(She said, like a liar.)

I do hope you guys are enjoying the new books and looking forward to what’s coming next! Thank you so much for all the love and reviews and being the best freakin’ fans ever! <3

Stay safe, darlings!

Wishes for Rohi is LIVE!

Now available on Amazon and KU, Wishes for Rohi is live for your reading pleasure!

Ashley Mostrich gets one heck of a birthday surprise when the guy he brought home for the night turns out to be the twin brother of the prince he didn’t know he was supposed to marry. Unbeknownst to Ashley, his grandpa made a deal with a jinn and promised him off to the royal family before he was even born.

Zamir is the heir to the mystical kingdom of Palmyra and promises he will love Ashley in time, while his younger brother, Zaire, is trying to get into Ashley ‘s bed again. Ashley wants to be a faithful fiancé to Zamir, but he cannot deny the powerful chemistry he feels with Zaire. Additional jealousy flares when Ashley discovers that Zamir’s heart already belongs to another, but the pressure for the wedding is on because the future of the Palmyran people hinges on a royal union magically producing an heir.

Once Ashley realizes that Zaire’s feelings for him might be more than physical, he finds himself falling in love with the wrong brother and risking the fate of the entire kingdom. It’ll take a miracle—or one very powerful wish—for everyone to have a happy ending.
