Why participate in the Blog Hop? #HAHATB

2015PngI recently had someone ask why I participate in blog hops like this?  This, being the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia.

The question was probably not meant to be as revolting as I took it. But to me, the undertone had more to do with a secret phobia of  ‘the gay agenda’ than it did with anything I post on this blog. That it came from someone who I thought of as a close personal friend bothered me even more.

So why do I do this? Better yet, why do I fill my timelines with LGBT news of suicides and murders and beatings? Why not just talk about books and cats and those funny gay YouTubers who shit rainbows and never have a bad day. They can just shave their forty-year-old chest and say “We’re all queer and happy here!”  and everything is okay. [Read more…]

Anaxantis, prince of Ximerion.

You will hate him… if your heart isn’t big enough.

While the kingdom of Ximerion is threatened at its southern border by a major power, the high king sends his two youngest sons, the half brothers Anaxantis and Ehandar, as Lord Governors to the Northern Marches where minor raids by wild barbarians are expected. Under the guidance of an old and trusted general, the king hopes to keep the young princes far from the major conflict in the south, while at the same time providing them with a valuable learning experience. The estranged half brothers are rivals, but soon they feel attracted to each other. As if this was not enough of a complication, they begin to suspect that they were set up by their own father. The result is a fierce struggle for power where the lines between hate and love become almost indistinguishable and where nothing is what it seems.

Serialized Fiction, Yeah or Nay?

I was very flattered to find myself listed as #1 under the topic of discussion at Love’s Last Refuge concerning authors currently writing in a serialized format. I must admit The Love of Wicked Men series is probably the hardest undertaking I’ve begun in a while. Writing in a serialized format takes much more effort than putting all your thoughts in one book. But I’d love to hear your thoughts on serialized fiction whether you’re a reader, a writer or both.

As you may have heard from the extremely devoted #WickedMen fans,  Episode 4 of The Love of Wicked Men is now available everywhere.

It was time for the comeuppance we’ve all been waiting to see, and from fan reactions so far, I’d say we hit the mark in knocking Sid Rivers down a peg or two. There are only two episodes left in the season, but you still have a chance to join in the conversation on Goodreads. Episode One is now FREE at all retailers,  and you can get all other episodes directly from the Wicked Men page at a 33% discount.

But he’s not going down without a fight. He’ll go to any lengths to make sure he survives.
