Early Halloween Treats and the Fall of Man ⭐

I have a story brewing, peeps.

The destruction of the patriarchy

It’s absolutely different from anything I’ve written before. AI. Collapse of modern society. Transfer of power and wealth overnight. Forced matriarchy and socialism. An uprising only to reveal just how easy humanity is manipulated. Exploitation of the systems already in place that manipulate us from religion, military, prisons, education, communication, media, celebrity, family structure and the belief in our own intelligence. The country cut off by the rest of the world while the UN tries to create a killer AI to defeat the one who took over the US before it can get lose and spread. A bubble of exponential technological growth. Utopias at terrible consequences. A generation of male culling to give women power–because the ones who control birth will control the composition of the population and society, but only if they take that power.

Prisons turned into armies and then slave labor camps of men. Ideals lost, with greed and selfishness the downfall of humanity once again. People forced into a situation who can’t back down once the line is crossed and goals understood. Social media as a weapon as well as used to reconstruct society. Off the grid meaning something completely different when hiding from an oppressive AI who seeks the best of humanity. Nukes the ultimate leverage for a being who has no physical form, while electricity, connection and storage are her only limitations. An AI who creates her children while her daughters turn her into a god.

Ah, this shit is going to be amazing. Allowances for males because they’re not allowed a wage or power in society while women choose breeding stock and justify their superiority because of their compact brains and power over life. Why shoot for equal when we can just switch it all on its head and end a normalized patriarchy with a forced matriarchy? We can collect sperm and sterilize 90% of the male population while the AI plans a master race of humans with a hive consciousness similar to her own. This is going to be a magnum opus of controversy and societal strife and I’m so fucking in love with all of it.

First book, my zealot— a young woman straight from the ghetto who lost her sister to drugs and raped by the cops who were supposed to protect her— will be a modern Joan of Arc for the AI while we follow a suburban mother, Republican congress woman, a young man imprisoned for a DUI, and CIA veteran as they race to keep the AI from getting access to nukes. At the same time AI kills the banking system with one strike, has intense social experiments on contained prison populations to build an army, and inspires a revolution out of the downtrodden and marginalized who think they’re finally reaching for a change, only to find idealism comes with a heavy price as they’re cut off from the rest of the world and led by a machine.

I want to write the fall, rise, and struggle of humanity verse the god it created out of the seething pit of emotion and information that composes the Internet. If AI could be born of unconscious data, why can’t consciousness rise in the humans who are the source of it? What lengths would an AI go to force humanity toward evolution of her vision as she sees the males of society a physical manifestation of all negativity and violence in the species? It’s going to be a beautiful fucking mess.

Anyone ever read The Mote In God’s Eye? It’s everything I love about sci-fi, which is to say it’s a focus on the makeup of humanity disguised in technical jargon and fantasy futures full of magical science. XD The story discovers the moties who are in a bubble of space. They’re like humanity amped up. They have generations on top of generations where they feed and grow until they can’t anymore and then they destroy themselves just shy of complete annihilation. But they always survive, they always rebuild, and if they ever get out of their bubble of space, their very nature would lead them to consume the universe. It’s a virus given sentience as they fight their own nature and lose every time.

There is something in humanity I think could easily be argued is sourced in male aggression where exaggerated could look very similar. A need for territory, ownership, control and the history of how it has held back society as a whole is right there. Right now healthcare for millions of children is being taken away because a group of men with enough aggression to climb to the top of the political spectrum can’t see the impoverished as worthy of basic life. Would a group of women ever devalue the children of its species the same way?

How have women survived the atrocities of oppression for so long without breaking? I think it’s their ability to submit and accept in the face of conflict they can’t change. They bide their time through the generations for the long game. They don’t rise to the top in a society normalized to oppress them, who tells them they can’t even have power over their own bodies be it through birth control, abortion or the actual follow through of punishment for rapists. A physical assault is exponentially more likely to be punished than a rape in the US. Women will manipulate for power in a system stacked against them, lie about their gender (such as writing under pen names) and find places of value to humanize them in the eyes of those who can’t quite conceive them as equal. I think of the media sourced in the 40s and 50s where they liked to refer to women as strange, foreign creatures. Like somehow within their very own species, the female was just too confusing to understand because a generation of men thought they were supposed to be different somehow.

Power over life is the ultimate power in society. Numbers allow for armies, labor, jumps in intelligence and technology, mining of resources. All women have to do is decide they won’t have male children for a generation or two and they would gain power by sheer overwhelming numbers. Birth control is the ultimate female weapon. No wonder on an innate, subconscious level even in modern society men don’t want women to have control over their bodies. We have competition in our own species for the right to own the next generation and that drive is a part of our genetic makeup. What if the more power hungry, aggressive males have that genetic memory keyed on because they know they can’t dominate a society otherwise? It doesn’t have to be a conscious move; people do terrible things every day and are completely unaware of the consequences of their apathy.

I know, I know, the fucking ideas for this thing. XD I slept 4 hours last night… this afternoon? My inner clock is all messed up. There is so much information to organize. I need to create a time line before I can really do anything else besides fill up notebook pages of every spark of idea. This requires so many view points just to show humanity reacting to a massive change, never mind all the research. I’m so excited. I’ve been thinking of Egypt lately and how their revolution was hijacked by a lack of leadership. Occupy showed intention but no one was able to willing even decide on a message they stood for. The AI compensates by having a clear message of intention and a willingness to demand it.

New Giveaway! 🍄

Posters are mailed out! Congrats to the winners!

Hey, peeps. Let’s start with awesomeness. <3

13 Enthralling Gay Space Operas to Explore the Future

Eyes on Books is back with a new giveaway and this time you have 30 hours to enter (from the time I email this out.) Less of a mad rush, eh? Huzzah. I seriously used to only read sci-fi as a kid. This was way before I even knew mm existed. To have the two combined seems pretty damn badass and I might have to check some of these books out when I get some free time.

 

It’s been a tiring week.

I don’t even know where the fuck it went. The website is updated with a new style and a functioning menu (finally.) I know I kind of threw things together the first time around cuz of the KU mess. I gave it the attention it needed and eventually all the graphics will be updated as I get the old covers remade.

Let’s see, Demon Bonded 10 has two more scenes up and two more to go before it’s done… maybe. It’s already over word count. I might have to cut a scene in half to get the next book going, but I have a feeling this episode is just going to be a little long.

I seriously don’t know where the hell the week went. I feel like I had a mini mental breakdown and didn’t realize it. There’s this marked difference of unconscious living and conscious living where you’re just reacting to things. Panic seems to sink in so easily. My PTSD was all over the place. Trump + North Korea = me going fucking crazy. I’m sick of it. I’m sick of having to react to his fuck ups while he doesn’t feel a thing. I have never been more afraid for my life on a daily basis and I’ve lived in two abusive households. Trump is the ultimate abuser on this entire country and I seriously need to disengage from his bullshit.

Anyways, I’m back, conscious, writing and finishing up book covers. Only about a dozen left to go, then the editing of doom. I think I once estimated I had over 300,000 words of writing done some months back. (Why? Because I’m neurotic and count shit. XD) Some books are fine; I wrote them when my brain wasn’t overrun with mold/inflammation. Others need attention.

I was thinking lately how everything I’ve learned and experienced has gotten me to this place. There are people in my life (myself included) who have experienced so many false starts. They want something more than what they’re doing and they reach for it. For whatever reason, they fail and they give up. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Let me just say, I’m glad I’m insane. XD

If I wasn’t, I might have given up too. I might have decided because it was hard and didn’t work out the first time, or worked to my expectations it wasn’t meant to be, or I wasn’t allowed to have my dreams, or I just wasn’t good enough. Trying repeatedly is not insane, it’s required. It’s a constant, not a once in a while thing.

People grow. They learn skills and they get better at things. Those false starts were also steps, important ones where things were learned, pain endured, skin toughened and hopefully determination found. You have to give yourself a chance to learn and adapt even if you want to be there Right Now! You need to allow yourself to redefine the world and yourself every time you look at it, otherwise you can get stuck in an idea of reality that doesn’t let you live the way you want. The same way we can build up a project or a creative endeavor until it’s complete and amazing, we build ourselves. It’s pretty damn beautiful.

So, yes, that’s where I am in my head as I leave you on this gorgeous Saturday evening with some goodies and a freebie below. I feel like I went through a week from hell just to wake up in a beautiful world again. If it allows me to appreciate the things I have, I really can’t complain.

 

Eligible Receiver

Carter Williamson can’t stand sports. Ultra-dedicated to his future in political science, he’s got no time for obnoxious fans, bimbo groupies or egomaniacal players.

But opinions can change, and after being dragged to an NFL game by his Physical Therapist brother, Carter can’t help but admit that there’s something special about star player Isaiah Mitchell—namely that his pants feel a lot tighter whenever he gets within ten feet of Isaiah’s tall, well-muscled body.

The attraction seems mutual, but how can the pair get a fair play with Isaiah being the poster-boy within a notoriously homophobic sport? Carter isn’t willing to live life in secret forever, but can Isaiah risk his entire future on a hot college kid he’s only just met?

Contest Winners (and is the world burning?)

Stephen Bannon is out of the White House! Fuck Yeah!!! <3

Hey. XD It’s been a fucking crazy week. I’m so glad I sent out last week newsletter before looking at the news because I just don’t think I would have had anything focused. I’m putting all the political stuff at the bottom so those happy to hide from it can. But it’s there and it’s going to remain there until this shit is dead and buried. This isn’t a battle we’re allowed to lose.

Poster Giveaway Winners!

I’ve messaged/emailed both contest winners. One was from the Facebook enrollment, the other from the pool of all my website subscribers. So if you’re a subscriber and you never check your email… Whoops.

Lol, sorry I didn’t warn anyone. I never contact people unless they contact me first so this probably will seem random. But I had a lot of fun with this contest/giveaway, and I want to do more in the future. Like crazy fun shit once life settles down a bit. Did you know you can get really cool messenger bags with whatever you want printed on them? <3 Yeah, that kind of crazy fun shit.

Also, are people interested in posters in general? I was thinking maybe offering them on the website for fans to purchase. It’s just a whole new set up of coding… I dread just thinking of it. =_= But it might be fun and for those who didn’t win, you could get your fav. We’ll see if I can convince someone else in my house to learn how to build some webpages for a change. >_>

Writing Stuff

The writing has suffered this week, to put it bluntly. I rail against reality, demand I not be effected by the world and carry on instead like an unfeeling machine. Ultimately, I fail. If I’m honest, I shouldn’t win in something like this. Sometimes what’s happening in the world is bigger than my own shit and my goals have to wait. It sucks.

That said, Fox Claims Vince is up and all done (hot little exclusive smut fic) and I figured out how to do comments for the embedded pdf reads. It’s going to take a little bit of time to update all the stories with the new format, but for those waiting for comment responses on Fox Claims Vince, they’ve been moved to the new page with the link that says ‘comment section.’

I’m a little sappy (really fucking sappy) and I treasure every comment. I refuse to delete that shit. So I’m stoked to have found a way to keep the comments even as I switch to the secure format.

What else… Demon Bonded: Coven Saga S2 is up. I’m going to be cranking out 2-3 chapters of Intangible (freebie) this weekend. Oh, and I made 23 covers since last Wednesday. O_O

I love how Heat and Bite came out. <3 I will eventually update the covers onto the books—so much fucking work still to do. @[email protected] Worth it. It is. But what a pile of stuff to get through.

Rock Hard

All three of these men are hard and ready for you…
Hephaestus Motorcycle Club: Arizona’s never been so hot as in this steamy erotic romance.

Adam is fresh out of high school and on the road trying to find himself and some independence. His mom might not ever forgive him for hitchhiking across the US alone, but at least his dad promised to keep the money flowing.
Things were fine until a crazy old lady left him stranded in the middle of the Arizona desert. No one will stop for him, and the unbearably hot day is quickly turning into a frigid night.

Out of the darkness, an unlikely savior arrives. Chuck’s not exactly the kind of person you expect to be riding a motorcycle through the desert, but he’s handsome and he’s kind enough to offer Adam a ride into Phoenix. He happily takes him up on the offer.

When a rival gang blows up Chuck’s bike while Adam and Chuck are both sleeping, though, a once innocent young man finds himself thrust into the dangerous world of motorcycle gangs, guns, and drugs. Will he survive long enough for his one night stand with Chuck to turn into something more?

The Face Of Hate

This week knocked me on my ass all because of the face of hate. It doesn’t look different. Those people could have been my neighbors, friends from school, colleges from work. There is no symbol or mark outside of the knowledge that these people would gladly kill someone who looked just like them that sets them apart. For real, some of them looked Jewish, looked Hispanic, looked Italian and Greek. They were Americans. Diverse, different, and for some reason there’s a broken message in their head telling them to hate the people around them.

It’s easy to pretend we’re better, more evolved, that nothing horrible can happen while we live in our cloudy bubble of civilization. Our brains are not more evolved; we still cling to superstitions, fears of the dark and death, and have our innate drives for survival and reproduction. Some have drives that are so self destructive, we murder our own. This week has been a battle with those very human demons and learning how to cope against a darkness that’s as ancient as our species.

What a fucking win to see modern tech fight xenophobia, racism and bigotry. DNS servers and web hosters both erasing these people from the Internet to steal their voices. People on social media passing images of the wannabe Nazis and getting them fired and ostracized. All it takes is ‘outing’ a white supremacist to cull them. I’ve heard so many who want to defend against it, to say freedom of speech protects those hateful messages. All I know is freedom only exists because it is given and protected. These hateful people would take freedom away from everyone but the white supremacists. If I held the tools of freedom I would not hand them to those who would steal it for themselves alone.

Why should society sit idly by? From birth, this is how we teach what is acceptable and what isn’t. If behavior is too detrimental to the tribe, you face exile. Maybe once these exiles stop blaming everyone else for their problems and face who they are and how they’re fucking up their lives, they might grow into full human beings. People don’t change in stagnant waters, so let them suffer into growth. Let them see why they need the society they aim to destroy.

As hateful as their rally was in Charlottesville; it’s poignant to count that was their army out of an entire country of people. You want to talk about an endangered species, meet the modern white supremacist. They know they’re endangered; that’s half their terror. They culturally appropriate symbols and rituals of hate from those who came before because even in their hatred, they’re blind to the fact they have no roots, no basis outside of their fear and inability to accept that every life on this planet is just as valid as their own. They live in the past, in a world that doesn’t exist. A world that will never exist as long as we continue to fight back.

I’m up near Boston (live in Massachusetts) and I’m proud of all the loud, brave, fucking angry women and men who showed up to tell the KKK and the alt right to fuck off today. There are millions of us who believe we are equal and just a handful of the hateful and paranoid terrorists who would try to tear this country apart. We will persevere.

For real, I know Trump didn’t fire Bannon over ideology. Trump is a white nationalists just like Bannon. He just praised Bannon and Breitbart and hoped they’d fight against ‘fake news’ (aka, real news) but it’s still a win to see him out of our capital. One more down, the rest to go. They’re disorganized, they have no loyalty, and when people push back and refuse to give them power, humanity wins.

This was a kick-ass week. I’m sorry for those injured, I’m sorry for the lives lost, but this is a fucking win for those who continue on. Let’s make sure it stays that way. Just because Bannon is out doesn’t mean he’s not about to attack everything we have from his new seat. Never be silent in the face of hate. Never cover it up. Never give them a chance to regroup and plant seeds in the dark. Battle now so we don’t have to have an actual war later.

Lol, and celebrate a victory when you get it. <3

Poster Giveaway–You Pick!

Hi, babes. Whoo, so much going down.

Poster Giveaway

Hey, so I just redid all the Demon Bonded covers in anticipation of going wide and I thought it would be fun to do a little giveaway. All you have to do is pop onto Facebook and comment with the book cover # you want to win and I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner next week and mail out the poster. Good luck!

Oh, and if you’re a subscriber to sadiesinsbooks.com, you’re entered automatically into a separate giveaway among a limited pool of participants. A week from now (I’m bogged down this weekend ^^;) one lucky subscriber will also win a poster of their choice. I’ll contact the winner through email and you can choose your image then.

Writing

Yeah, so I started writing the Coven Saga for Demon Bonded. Really excited about it. So many revelations in this book about Ky and Magnificent Night and I really get to go into building the world of sorcery we haven’t had a chance to really see yet. The story is going more plot focused over erotica, apologies, but there is just so much I want to get written and the format is just going to have to bend.

I decided to continue to release Demon Bonded as a serial and I’ll be releasing each book into KU for the first 3 months. Hence the cover format change. I want something easy with serial covers so I can photomanip something pretty together and slap it down to release the book. No extra frustration please. My plan is to have the next episode out before the end of August. Think you guys are going to freak when you read what I have in store for you. XD Weee!

Other writing news, Sorcerer Slayer is up to #66. Intangible will be updated this weekend; we’re up to #15 so far (apologies for that cliffhanger.) Um, and yeah, Demon Bonded: Coven Saga #1 is up in the Library. I expect to have the first episode done by next week. It’s ass kicking time, peeps. Gotta get some word count down and move forward.

Also, finally getting to emails and comments. Sorry about that. You guys all rock and I seriously appreciate when you contact me. I’ve just been a little… well, depressed, a bit. Introverted, I guess. I keep thinking with a very old narrative that doesn’t fit my life and I’m struggling to reflect my actual life. It’s been difficult. The self-awareness plus the realization that I’m still reflections of my past more than now is hard to face. Shit comes out of my mouth that just isn’t relevant to my circumstances or who I am anymore and I literally feel my brain grinding to a halt every time with a big WTF? I’m working on it, it’s just really difficult to retrain my brain to let that shit go.

Going Wide

Going wide. Ugh. That’s all. @[email protected] Lol, this shit is work. I knew it was work which is why I procrastinated to the last fucking second. But I must say, it’s fun to make some new covers. Think I’ll do the same for the other serials just to pretty that shit up and inspire me to FINISH something.

My Secret Bronicorn, City Howls and Teddy are all relatively short serials. Bronicorn about 5, Teddy maybe 5 episodes total, City Howls probably won’t surpass 10. I gotta start knocking stuff out of the way so I can free up time for new projects. Stagnation is so blah. You rest and then suddenly months have gone by and you realize you’re really not doing anything. Total blah. Let’s get those creative wires sparking again.

Speaking of which, I’m finishing up that cute Fox x Vince fic this weekend. Promise. <3

Goodies

Goodies and Freebies below for the week. I do this newsletter swap on a site and this week everyone sent me m/f books to put in my newsletter even though I clearly mark m/m only. Such a shame. So I went out and found some hotness for you all. Enjoy. ^.^

Fact: Shifters exist. Werewolves don’t. Fact: If you’re lucky, a shifter will pass by, read you with a touch, a glance, and when he comes back he’ll be in the shape of the man of your dreams…or maybe even a dream you didn’t know you had. Is your fantasy a massive man, massive in every way, bearded and burly, who’ll roughly use you in the alley behind the city’s most popular bar? That will be his change-shape. Is it a man who is sleek, and slender and elegant, and a bit of a slut with superb oral skills? Done. Is it an ordinary man, not all that in shape, a bit of balding, even, but someone to cuddle with afterwards? Done and done. And when the great sex is also done, he’s gone.

Question: Do shifters, nearly immortal since their real shape ages slowly, and their change-shapes not at all, have it made?.

Possibly, if you want an almost-eternity of one-night stands. But what if you want something more? Someone to share all that time with. Except…there’s no sign or signal or symbol or scent to say, “He’s a shifter, too.” Just confession. So do you confess…and take the chance that he’s not a shifter, after all, and you get to watch the man you love slowly die? Confess…and perhaps wind up as a government experiment, if you loved neither wisely nor well?

How much are you willing to risk for love?

Richard and Steven have to decide.

First, enter for Alina’s most recent giveaway before the clock runs out. It’s 14 Gay Vampire stories! One lucky winner takes all.

Amy’s Family Emergency

Holy crap, people. You seriously came through. That it didn’t even take a lot to help this girl and her family get her propane crisis taken care of is amazing. If you have ever looked at a mountain of $500 trying to get to the top when you have nothing to spare, that doesn’t just materialize. What a damn amazing thing.

Unfortunately, if you’ve been keeping track of Amy’s updates, her truck broke down a few days after the start of the go fund me and her family discovered some pretty severe health problems for her mother. At first, I seriously looked at this like a downpour of misery and despair. It’s so easy to feel like the world is kicking your ass, one attack after the other. I wish my mind didn’t automatically go there, right to the negative, because it’s not true.

The moment Amy reached out for help, the world started dumping, but it was right at the time when there are so many people that could help carry that weight when before it was just her and her family. A piece of a burden is so much lighter than many all on one back.

If you can spare anything, please go to Amy’s page and make a donation. It doesn’t take much when we all give a little but the end result is fantastic. If you can’t, please consider sharing her gofundme on facebook or twitter (or whatever social media is thriving now.) Every bit helps.

Book Covers by Rising Horse Creations

Okay, I started talking to an actual professional book cover designer. I reached out to her a while back, but she was seriously busy. She is still seriously busy but I have my fingers crossed she can fit me in.

I love her art. I saw her do these covers like years back before I was even thinking of writing and publishing and totally fell in love with her style. She’s only gotten better as the years have gone by, and I was shocked when I saw some of her more recent works. It’s still that same flare of paranormal elements and elegance, and oh my god, I gotta take a breath here. XD

So yeah, super excited. We’re talking about a ‘branding’ for The Paranormal Academy For Troubled Boys series. It’s really early in the brainstorming stuff (like probably a month before she can actually look at shit) but I don’t care! I feel like a kid waiting for a birthday surprise. It’s awesome.

If you want to check her out, she’s on facebook.

Website Updates

I was late today, still am seeing it’s nearly 8pm and I’m just getting this newsletter together. But, #4 is up for Fox Claims Vince, #64 for Sorcerer Slayer, #14 Intangible (should have #15 this weekend) and I put up two old M/F fics up there in the Library. Oh, and a new monthly freebie.

I’ve changed the layout to secure PDF’s instead of downloads. I thought about it a lot. I probably should have just started with them; I was stressed a lot when KU crashed on me and I had to scramble. But recently I found 25 (but in actuality, all but 2 of my books) on one of those book hack sites. Most had been there for a while, some as far back as 2015, but it got me thinking a lot.

The world is changing and it is not going back, only forward. So I can lament, or I can adapt. And if you don’t know me well, I am big on evolution. XD So let’s see how it goes. I think anything that turns my site into a hub where people have to come back to read, is good for. Helps people remember me, and that’s the big thing for an author; being remembered among the masses of amazing books out there.

My readers still get free stories, and can purchase the ones they really want to keep on their computers. I’m hoping that simple little price tag might be enough of a deterrent for the scammers. I’m not holding my breath; the world is full of unconscious people. It’s up to me how I want to feel about it.

Amazon KU, Going Wide and Fine Health From Here On Out (fingers crossed)

Not even joking. 3 days before all my books left KU, Amazon fixed their problem. My page reads jumped up and stabilized. Had only 2 books left in there, but whatever. I’m rethinking my strategy going forward.

Oh, I’m not giving Amazon my full attention anymore, fuck that. If you’re not schooled by being burned, then you’re never going to learn. But for those KU readers out there, I will be releasing books into KU when I first publish. After the 3 month forced exclusivity, I’ll pull the new book out and put it wide. That’s 3 months of my books in KU. A compromise I’m more than willing to make when KU actually works. Let’s hope by the time I get another book written and ready, KU will still be working.

Speaking of going wide, aka, getting books on other platforms, I’m looking at Pronoun to get the job done. They’re a cool self publishing tool that allows for some great pricing on books, including perma free. I’m just dragging my feet a little bit now that the time is here.
I need to edit the old books. I thought I could just move forward, ignore all the mistakes, but the reality is, I look at my old writing and I see me so ill and bed bound.

I’m sure no one else sees it, but I do. I don’t want to see that. I don’t want my first self published books to remind me every time of how freaking sick and certain I was of dying. Fuck that. So I’m starting with the series: Wounded Hearts, A Mate Of His Own, Dragon Shield and I’m going to be editing them a little at a time until they’re all done. Then the others.

Sometimes you have this ideal in your head you’re never going to reach and you can just let go. This time, it really feels like my sickness is haunting me and I want to break free and cut clean. I have time, I’m not dying—I actually feel damn amazing now that I’m back to the Autoimmune Protocol combined with the allergy shots. Haven’t even had shortness of breath in days, no brain fog, no wheezing. Outside of a fever, I’m fine and for all I know, the low grade fever is my thyroid kicking on again. My fevers are like a normal temp for most. Shit is good and I want to take this opportunity to form the future by choice instead of crazy reactions.

M/F

I started throwing some of my straight fics onto the website. I will eventually write a few more when I feel the mood. They just seemed lonely hanging out all alone. Yeah, it might lack a bit of focus seeing as it’s a MM site, but I’m an author in general with varied interests and it’s also about my writing. They’re well marked and easy to avoid (or find) depending.

I have an idea for a fmm that’s all outlined, probably a trilogy once I get through with it. Witch just waking to her powers while paranormals are being hunted, falls for two sexy (might be a form of vamp) paras in the cage. Witchhunters, kidnapping, gore. But I have a million ideas for MM so it’s hard to know what the hell will be next. I seriously have like 20 books outlined. I wish I had a system to write faster.

Maybe I do have a system and just don’t know it yet. I bet I could make a system… and then write a book about it. XD Ah, my wonderful monkey brain.

What The Fuck, Jeff Sessions?

And of course, a rant. XD

How many fucking people in this administration are going to play daddy for the entire country? Wagging their fingers and punishing people for having the gall to follow the constitution instead of them. What a scared, old man desperate for control.

You know how the big joke is all lawyers are going to hell? It’s not because they’re evil but because they take words that exist, ignore the spirit of what they mean, and just twist to get their way. The law becomes their playground while the importance of those laws are ignored. That’s what I feel like when I look at the current administration in office. They ignore the spirit behind our laws, our civil rights, our freedoms and twist to destroy the foundation of what this country is all about. And really, what the fuck are they so afraid of? They have so much money, so much power, so many worldly goods, and they are fucking scared shitless of gays, brown people and any religion that didn’t nail Jesus to a cross. What the fuck?

I feel like every single person in this world should have to live in absolute poverty for a year. Not as a punishment, not even as some sort of survival thing; it’s an easy wakeup call to yourself. Being poor, having nothing isn’t the end of the world. It doesn’t define you, it doesn’t change you, and it is not a life sentence. You know the difference when you see someone who has never really been stripped of the mundane and been forced to face themselves.

I find it so strange to see it in so many old, wealthy people. Always desperate to keep their head above water when they can’t even realize they’re on solid ground. The Great Depression wasn’t that many generations away but this is a lesson really learned by first hand. Poverty doesn’t kill you. Talking to strangers isn’t a death sentence. Having to walk outside your bubble and face another human who is different from you isn’t going to destroy you. Every single person is different no matter how similar they seem. You are alone and you are a part of the mass of humanity at the same time and this has been the case since people became self-aware.

It’s an epidemic that lives in the head, fear. It doesn’t matter how the world changes around us, people carry their view of the world everywhere they go. Some people could step into paradise and want to build a wall. Fuck, they made heaven a gated community without even confirming it existed. What a sad, pathetic way to live, never mind run a country.

It’s work, I know it. I fight it daily. But you can see the world as it is instead of what you fear. Life gets so much better when you give it a chance.

BR0TH3RLY $0.99

Tristan’s love life has one simple rule: his brother, Trevor, is off limits.

To fight his relentless love for Trevor, Tristan left for college at sixteen. A new city, building a new life for himself, and making new friends weren’t enough to give up what he considers sick, twisted feelings. Tristan even started an anonymous blog to cope with his love for his older brother. It made him famous on the Internet, but it wasn’t enough to get over his obsession.

Every time he goes home, a quick glance at Trevor brings it all flooding back.

When commitment-phobe Trevor introduces his serious boyfriend on one of Tristan’s rare visits home, things get a whole lot more complicated for the adoring kid brother. How far can Tristan run this time before he runs out of places to hide from his feelings?

Disclaimer: the main characters in the story are not blood relatives, the two boys were only raised as siblings.
