Hello lovely readers!
Dragon Destined, the 2nd book in Kara Lockharte and I’s Prince of the Other Realms series, is NOW OUT ON AMAZONNNNN!
If you liked the first book or you like the looks of this cover (which this book TOTALLY DELIVERS ON, I SO PROMISE, muhahahaha) then you should click through and check it out! :D
Hey world, it has been awhile! Sorry for not being here, life happened for along time there — and just as I was getting my writing act back together, working on this series with writer extraordinaire Kara Lockharte that I’m super happy to be releasing soon, the pandemic happened, aie! I’m still a nurse, and things are getting pretty damn real out here in California, alas, so good news/bad news — but good news first!
The good news — this book is THE BOMB.
I know I’m biased. But…it’s so good. It’s so delicious and good. It is as good as the man on the cover has many, many abs, it is that good.
cover of Dragon Called!
And what’s more is you can pre-order it hereeeeeeee!
It’s a really hot paranormal shifter romance about a billionare dragon-shifter and the nurse he can’t get enough of ;). Click the link and check out the blurb — people who preorder are going to get an extra ‘hot’ scene in their book ;).
Now for the real-life news — work is getting worky. My floor’s been divided into two halves, and the covid wing is filling up. It’s pretty dang scary to be taking care of people who are super sick and who have a disease for which there is no cure. We’re not as bad as NYC or LA right now, but while we’ve slowed the wave some up here in the Bay Area, we all know it’s coming. I’m in a (very rare) good mood right now so I don’t want to get into the nitty-gritty of things, but if you remember who I am at all you know I’m a straight shooter, so please, please and I mean it, stay home as best you are able and if you go out, go out with a mask and gloves. I want us all to make it through this, together, all right? Social isolation is the only way to go.
Stay home and read instead! <3

In other news, I started another part time job at work on top of my already part time work-work, which is combining to be some sort of Voltron-Cassie who is at work Too Much. The second job is helping develop computer training curriculum and then training nurses on it, but it’s been rough so far — people aren’t really excited about our charting changing, which I totally feel as a bedside RN, but we gotta keep with the times.
I’m on my way out to a writing retreat in Big Sur shortly, before I really am expected to be full time for the rest of the summer, so I hope to get a lot of fresh writing done. I’m a 100k into Dark Ink Tattoo, I should finish episode 6 tomorrow, and it’s gonna be at least ten episodes long. I’m glad I’m releasing it episodically, it’s been fun to get to play with each chunk, and it’s nice to have a feeling of forward momentum on something even when my writing time is so piecemeal currently.
I’ll be back with pretty coastline pictures shortly, promise :D
So one of the things I’ve been working on went live yesterday! It’s Dark Ink Tattoo — an episodic urban fantasy erotica series that I’ve been writing in between things for awhile now, based on my love of paranormal critters, erotica, and tattoos. I have to say, writing it’s been an easy blast, so nice to work on something that’s just sheer fun :D.
Here’s the official deets:
Dark Ink Tattoo is an erotic urban fantasy series, which will be comprised of ten 15,000 word pieces each with graphically detailed violence, and deliciously detailed sex.
Dark Ink Tattoo, Episode ONE:
Angela, Dark Ink’s owner, has a secret – she’s a werewolf who used to run with the Pack, a dangerous drug-dealing motorcycle gang that services Vegas’s seedier side. She’s been free for the past seven years, ever since her ex-boyfriend (and Pack leader) Gray went to prison – but when the Pack starts threatening her shop she realizes she’s on borrowed time.
Dark Ink’s best artist refuses to show up before sundown – because he’s a vampire. Vegas is the perfect place for Jack – it’s an endless buffet of strangers to bleed. The only thing that haunts Jack more than his hunger is Angela….
Will Angela ever trust Jack with her secret? Will Jack be able to protect Angela from the Pack?
This particular episode contains two MF scenes, and one scorching FMF threeway.
(I know some of y’all are hoping I’ll go back to regular urban fantasy soon…just keep keeping your fingers crossed for a little bit longer ;))
I don’t call, I don’t write…. ;)
It’s been a really long time here, hasn’t it! I’m sorry about that — life started happening at a frantic pace, and it was easier to slack off here than it was on any of my other life-fronts (relationships/friendships/work/writing/etc).
I don’t want to over promise and say I’m baaaaaack, ala Poltergeist, but I am definitely alive, and I’ve definitely got some new books coming out shortly! More on that as they happen, I swear :D.
