But first…

Exciting News Number 1:

Subscriber Goal = hit!

Thanks soooo much for sticking with me because without you, I wouldn’t be here. And honestly, to see over 100 people subscribed to my mailing list feels amazing! I can’t describe to you how encouraging it is every week to see the support of all of my subscribers just by reading these emails. I will do something special to celebrate, but I haven’t decided what yet. Let me know if you have any ideas!

Have you read Discovery (Inheritance #1) yet?

Discovery (Inheritance Part #1) by Ryder O. Cox & esotericPride
So I’m pretty sure that the huge influx of new subscribers was because many of you wanted to read Discovery (Inheritance #1) for free. 😍 If you haven’t yet, please be sure to subscribe, and when you’re finished, rate and review it for me on Goodreads.

In Even Better News…

The sequel to Discovery is almost ready for beta readers! If you’re a part of my beta reader team, I’ll be sending you an email when it’s ready. Anyone who wants to join the team and be notified specifically for beta reading and early review copies of my stories, let me know by leaving a message and I’ll add you to the list! I’m going to try to make this one available on Kindle Unlimited or for sale for $0.99 on Amazon, but if they give me shit again, I’m going to have to sell it other places. Wish me luck, and I’ll keep you posted!

Sexy Sale Time~!

Ryders, check this out~! This month’s sale is 100% my jam, and if you’re on my mailing list then there’s a good chance that it’s yours too. Seriously, my ‘to be read’ list grew so much with this one. It’s hard to find time to read when I’m trying to write all the time, but I usually get in a chapter or 2 before bed anyway. Which is good, because there are at least like 10 books on this list that I’m adding to my TBR anyway LOL. Most of them are available on Kindle Unlimited, so check them out. I’d love to hear what you think!

Dark, Kinky, & Taboo Gay Romance

Inside My Mind


No new questions this week in my NGL, so that means it’s time for more ADHD thoughts of the week. If you want to send me a question to answer, feel free to leave a comment here. Or if you want to send anonymously you can use my NGL link –

Now for the thoughts… 
So I started a new medication this week and it’s been helping to keep me on track. Except when it hasn’t. Like earlier today, when I went down a rabbit hole of thought that ended in “wtf are Will-o-the-Wisps leading people out into the woods for? Who does this benefit, and how?”

Harris McGuire and Dalton Gardener are both assassins utilized by the mafia. Dalton is one of the highest professionals on the totem pole, known for his precision and planning, who works for the top crime family in the area. Harris, on the other hand, is a brutal yet efficient freelancer who various mafia outfits have been known to contract. 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…

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.
