Social Media Queenin’

My brand-new dominatrix of a PA has pushed me to be more present on social media. I’m a narcissist, so I readily agreed. Recently, you’re seeing an uptick in reachout via newsletter, Facebook, blog, and now (new this week) I’ve started a TikTok!

I don’t want to brag (I will anyway), but I’m sort of finding a groove with this new self-promoting, self-centered, narcissistic fad to post endless videos about yourself and basically anything random your head can think up. And no, I didn’t stay up all last night watching endless, mindless videos of men chopping wood (seriously, what’s that all about?!)

I promised myself never to be lured over to THE TIKTOK, but here we are. I blame my PA…and several other loud voices in the room encouraging an outreach there.

Like I said: Chopping wood.

So, what can you expect from this new push? A whole lot of ridiculousness. There’s no easy way to say this, but in person, I’m just as weird and awkward as I am writing this post which is basically to myself, hoping someone will read it and I won’t fail at the one thing my PA asked me to do.

We’re cooking up a few more ideas. Expect lots of content and videos coming your way. But for now, check out my new platform of ridiculousness and feel free to give me a follow and comment on one (or all…it better be all) of my videos.

I’m looking forward to talking to the void, an endless sea of faceless people, and act like it’s not totally weird I’m doing it.

It’s Free and Loose, Like Yaniv’s Morals!

Naked man = best advertising ever. Objectifying men since 2015.

Did you know I write super sexy guys who, if not for fiction and romance being what it is, would be considered a sex offender by nightfall? Granted, I often pair them off with feisty, don’t need no man types who aren’t afraid to call them out on their bullshit. That’s the sort of reckless pairing you can expect from my books. In this case, The King and I: A Promiscus Guardian Love Story, features such a pairing.

Sounds like Yaniv needs to get a lawyer.

For this weekend only, you’ll get to read it for free.

It’s a story that has everything: hot kings, badass pink-haired heroines with a penchant for sinking her blades ten-inches deep in demons, a realm with dragons–DRAGONS–and some other weird creatures, the fast-paced story line that may or may not have been crafted with too much coffee and the dreams and hopes of an author who never gets out of the house the way she wants to. Not to mention, lots of inappropriate pan ins on an unrealistic eight-pack that glistens even when it shouldn’t.

This story really does have everything.

Trixie is a heroine I like writing–one who would much rather fight a horde of Low demons than cuddle up with a seriously sexy king who doesn’t know what the word no means. It’s funny and clever and full of adventure, and yes, those are terms I coined myself because my characters need to get their narcissism from somewhere.

Anyway. You have no reason not to grab a copy. Make sure you do and that you leave a review to tell me how great a storyteller I am (or how I’m full of hot air and should probably re-evaluate my life choices).

I made this one too. PRAISE ME!

Haven’t read my books? No problem. I have a couple titles for free! Check out my Amazon page for the titles Victor and Awakening!

What’s Next?

I’ve been asked a lot lately (even though I’m about to push out another book baby) what is next after the release of Angel Tears (Read about it here). What do I plan to write about now that my book baby is released to the world and I’m basically single again?

Several things. I’m playing with the concept of short serial stories about a teenaged vampire hunter. For those who know me, I don’t do short stories very well. I tend to make them full novels eventually and I can’t be trusted with a word count cap. Everyone who’s tried has failed. The first part, though, is somehow already written and will be made available in an upcoming anthology (watch this space for more details). But! I mostly NEED to work on Simon and Ebony’s story, which I started before Angel Tears but sidetracked away from. I have plans for the Next Generation Guardians, too. I’m also determined to write about Cathal, featured first in Resurrection (Book Four in the Promiscus Guardians series) and his assholery finding love.

Mostly, I have way too many ideas and not enough finger strength–or freedom seeing how I have four kids who may or may not rely on me for things (but mostly ask their father anyway).

So, first, I guess I should talk about what I’m already working on–Simon and Ebony. Remember them? They sort of had a story left unfinished and were forgotten over the course of the series because I had louder voices in my head. *cough* Bernie *cough* Because I really need this story to further the Next Guardians series, based on the kids of the main series, I can’t really leave it again.

So, now I write. I write like I’ve never written before. With brownies. Endless pots of coffee. An assortment of subjective, definitely unhelpful material I’ve pretended is because I found it on Netflix and wanted to watch it. I do what writers do, and I’m pretty sure that’s procrastinate and tell yourself that one day it’ll write itself.

Do I plan to write outside of the Guardian world again? Yes. I really loved writing a new shtick. I want to play around with different concepts not covered in the Guardian world, and also my brain hurts from trying to remember things I’ve written because I was never smart enough to make myself a cheat sheet about my characters, who are now just eyes and muscles in most cases. I also plan to explore more shorter story bits for anthologies.

Haven’t read my books? No problem. My first book, the one that is definitely a good showcase of who I am as a writer, is FREE to grab. Make sure to get your copy on your way out. It’s worth it, promise. Or it’s not, but then you didn’t spend anything and we can both act like we don’t know each other.

What’s Coming in April?

Here we go. Another release. My 13th if you’re counting. I am.

This time, I stepped out of my favorite writing world to start a new alter-universe about angels and demons. It’s actually the first time since I started publishing in 2015 that I wrote a book about something other than the Guardians.

I made this all by myself. PRAISE ME!

It still follows the same themes I like to write–supernatural intrigue, hot guys with unattainable muscles, kickass heroines who don’t need no man, and all the humor you have come to expect from my stories. All the characters are my favorite, but I have a little something new–kids.

To be fair, these kids are cute and endearing. Not turds. But who am I to judge? You’ll have to decide that for yourself.

I never look this hot by a window.

This new story is a hot piece of sexual awakening and a whole lot of “Is that legal?” It toys with different themes, since Ciara is on the edge of 18 (an adult a month later in the story) and Cain, the angel who says he’s not a stalker, is like a bazillion years old. Okay, he’s like, 600 or something, but still sort of falls into that “Gross, he’s like an old man and she’s not” theme. I play around with this topic a bit in the story, making jokes about it because we all wonder where maturity lies, what does consent look like, and when can she take off his shirt without it being a crime?

Those nail marks are going to show up tomorrow.

So really, what’s it about? Well, thanks for asking.

Ciara is the oldest sister of four, who spent nearly eighteen years caring for them. She’s put the roof over their head and food in their mouths with a father lost at sea and a mother absent for various neglectful reasons. She doesn’t like to show weakness. She’s not interested in anything that can’t help her pay the bills, so when her world is upended by a demon attack and a team of military-slick angel types, Ciara doesn’t know what to do.

All of this leads to a few discoveries. Biggest of all–Ciara is a half angel. And *gasps* a dark overlord, okay, a demon, is after her. He wants her (because who doesn’t) and will stop at nothing. NOTHING I SAY.

Ya-da-ya-da. It’s really just about a hot guy with silver hair, his companions who think he’s a pervert, and a brood of kids who Ciara is bent on protecting. My summation is flawless!

Baby got baaaack
