NaNoWriMo 2019 Start

Standard

Hello all!

I’m checking in to see how everyone is doing this November and to announce that this year, I am doing NaNoWriMo!

What is NaNoWriMo? It’s short for National Novel Writing Month, and it means that I am attempting to finish writing a novel in a month. In this case, a novel means 50 000 words and a month is 30 days. It’s quite the challenge.

I have made a video log about my NaNoWriMo challenge which you can watch below.

 

If you want, you can also watch it on Youtube HERE.

I really enjoyed making this vlog for you all, so I hope that you also enjoy watching it.

Good luck to all of you out there who are doing NaNoWriMo. If you want, you can comment about your own project and how that’s going!

 

Sky Knights Cover Reveal

Standard

Hello all!

Sky Knights is being republished on November 30, 2019!

Check out the cover:

skyknights

Here’s a quick blurb to entice you:

Dounia and Ira are part of the Nightwitches, an elite squad of night bombers determined to help bring down Axis forces. They are proud and fearless—until tragedy strikes and their plane is shot down behind enemy lines, and their determination may not be enough to get them home safe.

Just some background info: this is a historical fantasy novella. The Nightwitches were, however, not fantasy. They were a real Soviet bombing squad made up entirely of women. I actually wrote a blog post about it when it was first released HERE.

This novella is 26k words long, f/f, some explicit content.

Sky Knights is available for preorder HERE!

All the King’s Men Cover Reveal

Standard

Hey everybody!

Quick blurb:

Fox is a mindnet hacker, working for the mysterious man known only as King. He spends his time uncovering secrets and releasing them to the public.

But those who cause trouble are bound to attract it, and despite their precautions King is taken prisoner by an unknown government. If Fox is going to save him, he’s going to need help—help that comes from the very last place he expected to find it.

The book is up on the Coming Soon list at JMS Books HERE!

Thanks for tuning in!

Republishing with JMS Books

Standard

Hello everyone,

I know that it’s been a while since I said I would find a new home for some of my works, but it’s finally happened.

After a lot of careful shopping around for a new publisher, I have decided to rehouse my past publications with JMS Books! JMS Books is, as their logo says, “a queer small press.” They publish all sorts of different genres of LGBTQ+ romance. I am really excited to announce that they have picked up four of my previously published novels/novellas as well as my novella Yaliana, which was in the works to be published, but was never given a release date.

The titles for re-release are as follows:

All the King’s Men

Rangers Over Regulus

Hakusan Angel

Sky Knights

And Yaliana will also be published as a brand new publication.

As soon as I know the re-release dates, I will let you all know. The earliest you will see the first one out is November 2019, as I am getting a quick re-edit, plus brand new covers. Cover reveals will happen as I receive them. 

Thanks everyone for sticking with me while I looked for a new home. I found what I was looking for with JMS Books, and I am happy to recommend them to any former LT3 author also looking to rehome their books.

See everyone on the flip side!

New Titles Up

Standard

Hello everyone!

First of all, I’d like to thank you for being patient while I reformatted some of my previous work. Secondly, I would like to bring you two of my previously published works as self-published works.

The first is Love Rampage!

Love Rampage - cover2-01

Love Rampage is a trans romance about love and acceptance. 

Maira is a trans woman with feelings for a girl named Carol, who she believes will never love her. Being shy and awkward are the least of Maira’s problems. Maira thinks that nothing will ever change until she is kidnapped by a unicorn who claims that Maira must profess her love to Carol. Maira is skeptical, but can love win in the end?

Love Rampage is a short story of about 11k words and is trans f/f urban fantasy story. 

For only $0.99 you could own it today!

Originally published by Less Than Three Press for the Geek Out Collection, Love Rampage is being republished as a self-publication HERE.

Next up is a free read!

Charmed by Chance

Charmed by Chance is another romance involving a fairly hopeless mechanical design student named Merrit who sometimes has problems when dating mech mages. However, one mech mage comes along who doesn’t seem to mind Merrit’s quirks. In fact, Verity, the genderqueer shop owner who fixed up Merrit’s mechanical hand, seems to like it. But what happens when terrible circumstances befall Merrit? Can he and Verity overcome everything and be happy?

This short story is absolutely FREE to download.

Charmed by Chance is another trans romance with a m/nb pairing. 8k words.

It’s here! Insanity Girls Redux is finally ready for publication.

Summary: Insanity Girls takes place in a modern Canadian city, where the nightlife is wild and those that roam its streets even more so.

I self-published this short, and am looking to hopefully put up even more short stories and novellas that need new homes. I will be waiting until at least July 31st, as LT3 is in the process of taking down their book listings.

This amazing cover artwork was done by an awesome artist who happens to be open for commissions! Their name is Reina, but I will let them introduce themself!

Reina is a full-time freelancing digital artist with a professional focus on character design and concept art. They also produce illustration works. They are currently based in Malaysia.

I had a really great experience hiring Reina to do my cover. And, as you can see, my cover looks beautiful.

Specs for Insanity Girls Redux:

Lesbian

Contemporary

16 000 words

$1.99

LT3 Closure

Standard

The news is out: after ten years of successful business, Less Than Three Press is closing its doors.

across borders

I was 23 when I was first introduced to this publisher by my good friend J.K. Pendragon. They were getting their first story The Fairy Gift published there. I was nervous at first, because I’d never thought that I could publish anything. But I did it, I submitted my first ever published work to Less Than Three Press, and to my unending surprise, they accepted my novella Across Borders for publication in The Bestiary collection.

Since then, I published multiple stories in various genres, mostly sci-fi and fantasy romances. Less Than Three Press was a good place to start my writing career. Because of them, I gained confidence in my writing, attended several writing conferences, and met many different authors from all over the world.

So, now what’s going to happen?

For a lot of my novels and novellas, this sad occasion is not the end for me. I received the news before the general public, and I’ve been planning out what to do since I first found out.

Love Rampage - cover2-01

First of all, I have two shorts: Insanity Girls and Love Rampage. I will be self-publishing each of these shorts and advertising their release fairly soon. To be honest, Insanity Girls is already published, but I’m waiting on a cover release in order to advertise it. If you want to see my awful placeholder cover, then I’m sure you can find it if you look on Amazon or the like. Love Rampage has a beautiful cover made by a Less Than Three Press cover artist and will be released as soon as I reformat it.

Second, I have a few novellas of less than 50 000 words, which is the unofficial novel length. These are Hakusan Angel, Sky Knights, and Across Borders. Two of these have lovely cover art already done, and I am fully satisfied with them. I will re-release Hakusan Angel and Sky Knights as self-publications as well. Across Borders is currently being re-written and may reappear as a full length novel at some point in the future. That one will also need a new cover!AlltheKingsMen

Lastly, I have two full length novels: Rangers over Regulus and All the King’s Men. I would like to find a new publisher for both of these novels. This means resubmitting them to a new LGBTQ+ publisher and possibly revamping them. I would love anyone’s suggestions for where to republish them!

That is all for now. I will announce each new short, novella, and novel as it is rereleased so that everyone knows.

Thank you!

Alex
