Hello all!


I’m just writing a very quick blog post to announce the winners of the June 10th draw for the print copies of All The King’s Men.

I wrote down the number of comments on a piece of paper, flipped them all over and mixed them up before drawing three numbers which correspond to the comments on the blog in order from earliest to latest.

The three numbers were 19, 17, and 3.

Those numbers corresponded to comments by Toni, JenF27, and Reiko Meyers. 

Congratulations on your win! Please email me at and give me an address which I can mail your print copy to.

The next giveaway will be held on June 17th! All of those people who commented previously are still in the draw to win either a print copy of Damsels in Distress vol 2 or A Loose Screw vol 2. 

Anyone can still enter my draw for next week by commenting on my 5 Year Anniversary post!

Thanks everyone for entering!

5 Year Anniversary!


Hey all!

So, it’s my five-year anniversary for signing a contract with Less Than Three Press this month! It’s also Pride Month! Woohoo!


Five years ago this month, I signed a contract for Across Borders, which is one of the novellas which is no longer in print. I’m going to do some major revisions on it and resubmit it! I’m very excited about this project.

Also, I want to hold a giveaway to celebrate my 5 year anniversary!

So, here are the details!

On June 10th, I will hold a draw for my book All the King’s Men. I will pick 3 people to receive a print copy, shipping included, to anywhere in the world.


On June 17th, I will hold a draw for the anthology A Loose Screw vol 2 or Damsels in Distress vol 2 (out of print). I will pick 3 people to receive a print copy and you can choose whether you want A Loose Screw volume 2 or Damsels in Distress volume 2. 


On June 24th, I will hold a draw for a $30 gift card and a $15 gift card to the Less Than Three Press book market. I will pick 2 people, the first person will be the winner of the $30 gift card and the second person will be the winner of the $15 gift card.

So, how do you do get into the draw?

All you have to do is comment below, and your name will be added to the draw. I will be using a hat to draw the names the old fashioned way. I will be using the same group of names for all the draws, so you don’t have to comment again to be entered again. Also, I will also be counting only one comment per person, so even if you do comment again, you will only be entered once.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you share this post and link me to proof that you have done so in the comments, I will send you a FREE EBOOK COPY of Rangers over Regulus, which is no longer in print.

If you have any questions about the draw, please ask in the comments or email me at

Good Luck!

Updated Patreon account


Hi all,

So I’ve been updating my Patreon account, and I wanted to let you all know that I’ve added rewards for any patrons of my account!

$1 Reward – special blog posts and polls that only Patrons can have access to

Yes, that means that some of my blog posts will be posted only on my Patreon account for those who want to pledge $1. 

$5 Reward – access to short fiction written by me. I will be posting this on my Patreon as well, and will be accessible only to anyone who has pledged $5. Short stories will be 5000-8000 words.

$20 Reward – a prompt for writing short fiction. I will write a short fiction piece based on the prompt that someone gives me. The short story will be about 5000-8000 words. I will post it on the blog, and patrons with $5 access will be able to read it.

I don’t know if anyone would want to pledge me something like $50, but if someone does, I would have to create a tier just for them! Oh my! I doubt anyone would though, so that option, while it’s out there, isn’t up on my Patreon yet.

And, as I saw on my last blog post about my Patreon, I pledged ebook copies of Love Rampage to the first 20 people to pledge on my Patreon. That’s still up for grabs!


Don’t Out LGBTQ People!


Okay everyone, this is my official rant about not outing LGBTQ people, especially trans people. For some reason, there are some people who seem to think that it’s okay to do so, and I’m here to tell you that if you know about someone being LGBTQ, then don’t tell anyone else or talk about it with other people. It’s literally no one else’s business if someone is LGBTQ unless that person comes out themself.

The reason I’m going on this rant is that I have seen two instances in a short period of trans people being outed by someone without their consent. One was a contestant on Survivor, and the other was Global News outing political candidates. This was done without the permission of these people, who did not necessarily want their gender up for discussion, debate, and general disrespect. I’m calling these people out, because what they did was wrong.

Outing someone without their consent is literally an act of violence and oppression. If you out someone, then you are taking away that person’s agency, and is a violation of their person. You are making the fact that they are trans more important than anything else about them. It leads me to believe that you care more about their genitals than their person. It’s disgusting that you think you are entitled to that information, and to tell other people about it.

LGBTQ people do not owe you shit. We do not owe it to you to tell you about our identities, especially trans people, because it can be very dangerous to be a trans person. Trans people get murdered for being trans. Trans people are discriminated against, they face violence, as well as the humiliation of people discussing private things about them in public. As a side note, it’s not acceptable to ask about someone’s genitals and whether they plan to medically transition, because let’s face it, it’s none of your damn business.

Saying that a person who is not out is being dishonest about themself is wrong. A trans person who is presenting themself to you as their true gender is presenting themself truly, honestly, and bravely. It is none of your business what gender they were assigned at birth. And if a trans person is not presenting as their true gender, they are not deceiving you or hiding who they really are. That person does not owe it to anyone to come out, or to transition. As for the rest of the spectrum, it really is none of your business about who a person wants to have sex with.

I’ve said that “it’s none of your business” a lot in this post, and that’s because it’s not. You are not entitled to any information about a person’s gender identity or sexual preference. If someone chooses to share it, that’s great, but we don’t owe it to anyone to come out.

So seriously, don’t out people againt their will. It’s cowardly, dangerous for the person you’re outing, and just wrong, completely immoral.

This goes for LGBTQ people too! Just because you’re in the community doesn’t mean you can out people, even to other LGBTQ people. You might think that it’s safe and not a big deal because you consider yourself accepting, but it’s still none of your business. You’re not entitled to any other person’s identity but your own.

Rant over.

Summer semester starting!


Hey all,

My summer semester in grad school is starting, and that means, more free time for writing and editing! I’ve been biting at the bit when it comes to writing, because I’ve really missed creative writing instead of academic writing. Strangely enough, I think that the research, outlining and writing I’ve done for school will make me a better creative writer, which can only be a good thing.

First thing is first, I am going to do all the dev edits for Yaliana, which I’ve only just started looking at. My 15k word manuscript has 120 comments on it, some for shorter edits, some for much longer edits. This will likely take me all month to complete, as the edits are quite substantial. I will also likely emerge with a much longer manuscript than I started out with.

I’m also going to look at my aro/ace dragon series. I have finished the first draft of the first novel, and I’m working on the second story as we speak. A strategy I used for writing papers that my supervisor suggested is writing quotations on cue cards, and it really worked for organization. So I think I will begin to use it for working on this series to organize it better.

I have a whole bunch of stories that I haven’t worked on in a while, as well as a couple I just started. I’ve been thinking of doing a poll later for which story I should continue on with first. I will do that later, however, as I’m focusing on Yaliana edits for this month. 

I’ve also made a decision regarding my two manuscripts for which I received the rights back. Those two were Across Borders, my very first novella ever (so embarrassing, omg) and Rangers over Regulus, the space vampire novel I wrote for the Proud to be a Vampire collection. I will probably resubmit both of them, after minor edits for Rangers over Regulus, and major revisions for Across Borders. 

Anyway, that’s the news for now. Hope everyone is having a good spring!

Is it spring yet?


Hello my writerly and readerly friends!

I haven’t updated my blog in a while, and it is as I predicted: grad school is eating up my time for creative writing. I’m doing tons of academic writing, but none of it is LGBTQ themed, alas. 

I will have some time in April, so hopefully I can get some writing done then. I haven’t progressed substantially with any of the projects that I mentioned in my last post, so I can’t give an update on that. 

My knight story was accepted for general release rather than for the Heart of Steel anthology, which I am fine with, because the editor that looked at my work wants me to expand on some sections. I originally wrote 15k words, but they think I can expand it a lot, because I no longer have a word limit of 20k. I think it’s a good plan, but will require a lot of work, which is why I’m waiting until April to work on that project. 

One good thing about grad school is that I’ve become more disciplined at writing, so I think once I start writing again, I will get a lot done. I’m hoping that I can get some work done this summer in between researching my thesis.

Anyway, slow going, but I’m still going to be putting some work out this year, which is good. I hope you will all enjoy my story when it’s eventually released!

See you all later!

PS: I reminded myself while I was writing this blog post, but I should mention it now. I had the rights returned to me for two of my works, Rangers over Regulus and Across Borders. I have the option of resubmitting them, either as is, or after revising them. Should I resubmit either of my works? What do you think readers/writers?
