Hey again! Or if you’re new, hey for the first time! I’m kind of just winging it this week because things have been a bit crazy (I’m sure this is no surprise to anyone lol) so bear with me. 

This week’s updates include new promos, a cover art work-in-progress, and a little bit about my holiday and what about it set me off kilter, so be sure to read all the way to the end! My mailing list subscribers also got to see my tentative release schedule and an even more detailed cover mockup, so if you’re not a subscriber you’re missing out! Why not subscribe now?
As always, reach out to let me know what you think, if you have any questions, suggestions, or just wanna talk about my cat-children. They love you already, I promise!

Do me a favor and Look at all these steamy MM Romance books <3

Hey you! Yeah, you. It’s the last week to check out all these spicy gay romance books in one place! Did you click that link? Pleeeease click it? My clicks were down from last week😭 I’m so bad at this marketing thing, but like I keep saying, this is the best way I know of to boost my ratings, which will get me into bigger & better promos. That will make it so I don’t have to harp on these so much, or do so many of them 🥺 And  if I get enough of a following, I can quit my day job, write more gay smut more often, and get my smexy books out even faster!For those of you who are new, I’ve been trying to grow my following. One of the best ways to grow is to get more folks to join my mailing list, and in order to do that, I purchased a BookFunnel subscription and joined some badass promos!

I get ‘karma points’ for every time someone clicks my referral link to these promos, even if you don’t buy anything or click on any of the books linked there. Higher karma grants me access to more, bigger, and better promotions, so I’d really appreciate it if you could please click the link below even if they don’t sound like your thing. 

However, the one for December is all MM sexy books, so I think you’ll find at least something good there. I know I did! And many are free on Kindle Unlimited as well, so you might not even have to pay for them!

Check out this hot bi-awakening fantasy romance novel, In Pain and Blood!

In Pain and Blood by Aldrea Alien

If you clicked the link in the last section, HUGE thanks! But this is something different – a feature-swap, where I share a book or two from another author and they share mine as well.  Just like the promo above, Bookfunnel tracks how many clicks I send to this url and gives me a ‘score’ that other promoters can see and decide whether or not they want to promo trade with me based on that, so please click it and check it out for me <3

I mentioned that my clicks last week were lower, but I think that could be because the promo last week was not a standalone book and wasn’t free on Kindle Unlimited. But this one is! Well, it’s the first in a series anyway, and I love the cover art! Here’s a quick synopsis: 

He’s unleashed. Unprepared. And thoroughly screwed.

Dylan’s life in the spellster tower has everything he should want: magical knowledge, safety from the King’s Hounds and frequent clandestine affairs with women. All at the cost of his freedom. So when the chance to leave the tower—even as a leashed weapon for the King’s Army—arises, he seizes it.

When his first scouting mission goes awry, Dylan is left alone in a hostile world with the tower a distant beacon of safety. Only the flirtatious Tracker, an elven man whose very presence awakens Dylan’s long-repressed desire, can help him return to his old life before the crown discovers his unleashed status.

But the risk of being branded a deserter may be the least of his concerns as whispers of an armed presence in the North threatens his home. Dylan must rely on Tracker to protect him even as everything he thought he knew begins to unravel around them.

*This book contains violence, gore and explicit adult themes.*
*This second edition shares the main storyline with In Love and Death and has additional content from Tracker’s pov.*  

Falling for My Roommate

Falling for my Roommate by Jessie Wilson

Can I just say that I LOVE this book’s blurb, title, and premise?  I’m totally going to read it, and it’s another one that’s free on Kindle Unlimited, so you should too!

Jayden, my new roommate. Confident. Sexy as hell. Dimples to die for.

Me? Apparently not as straight as I thought I was.

One night, after accidentally peeking on Jayden completely naked on his bed and pleasing himself, something stirrs inside me. I want him. I need him to touch me like that. And it seems he wants me too.

But what starts as simple lust turns into something unexpected and I’m finding myself falling for my roommate.

Depths of Desire (aka gay mermen)

Ok, promos over, back to me~! If you want to know why I’m so bad at promoting my stuff, it’s because I’m basically too nice. I worry that no one wants to hear about my books all the time, so I end up sharing other’s more than mine lol! Hopefully it’ll get easier with time, right?

I mentioned before that this isn’t the official finished cover for Depths of Desire. In fact, my mailing list subscribers got to see an even closer-to-finished one! Are you subscribed? If not, do it now 😁 But this gives you the general idea for what I’m going for. What do you think? Do you love it? Hate it? Please let me know either in the comments below or by contacting me via my contacts page!

Hectic Holidays


I know holidays are a big thing for a lot of people, but they’re really not for me. I mostly spend it with my chosen polyamorous family, and one of the couples had a baby a couple years ago so we were planning to just get the little peanut her gifts and hang out and do a Yule dinner celebration.

Until the dad’s shoulder exploded on Xmas eve. 

We’re not sure why, but he went to the emergency room, got some x-rays, and apparently there’s a ligament that just…isn’t attached anymore? It’s very painful for him, and they’re not sure if it will be fixable with physical therapy or if it will require surgery, but either way that was a big nasty surprise!

We’re planning to reschedule poly family Yule for early January (when my nesting partner’s birthday is) and roll all the winter stuff together, so fingers crossed that no on else explodes!

The two assassins’ paths cross on occasion and they enjoy a friendly rivalry, with Dalton teasing Harris for not ‘settling down’ to work with a single mafia family and Harris thinking that Dalton is the more stuck up and limited of the two due to the mafia’s rules which he must follow to a T.
But one day, unbeknownst to each other, they both receive peculiar assignments – to kill the other assassin. Dalton’s comes from his mafia boss, whereas Harris’ is from a strange anonymous (but wealthy) client. The two men chase each other around the city attempting to complete their jobs, each using his own skill set to the best of his ability.
But when Harris corners Dalton in his home, it’s not fighting that he has on his mind…

Tainted Belief

Tainted Belief by Ryder O. Cox free on Kindle Unlimited!
Bad: An asexual Catholic priest falls for the choir director at his church.
Worse: That choir director just happens to be an incubus in disguise.
For as long as he’s been an adult, Father Nikolas has been a priest. He went from high school to seminary school and then found a flock to lead in a small suburb of London. He’s never needed or wanted anything else, really. But when he finds his eyes lingering on the choir director long after everyone else has left, Niko begins to question everything.
Leviathan was cast out from Heaven and he chose to become an incubus, pursuing the pleasures of mankind instead of their torment. He sees Father Nikolas as just another meal, someone to play with, seduce, nourish himself with, and leave. But all that changes when he finds himself growing feelings for the priest.
