You might've noticed the disappearance of a particular set of books from Amazon, mainly the very one that brought the spellster universe into being. A certain slow-burn romance about a closeted bi-sexual and his journey towards finding love with a cocky self-assured elf via tragedy and lots of people dying. Yes, I'm talking about In Pain … Continue reading Big Overhaul Announcement Time!
Once Upon Another World Pre-order
It's arrived, the time that myself, along with several other authors, have been striving towards, the pre-order of a box set that will hopefully give us that USA Today Bestseller title! This box set exclusively features my f/f romance novella, Someone Else's Shoes. Not all fairy tales are as they appear. Was it actually Red … Continue reading Once Upon Another World Pre-order
So long 2019
At the beginning of the year, I set myself a few goals in the hopes that it would spur me on to complete things by the end of this year. Get Dark One's Bride edited and published. This was probably the goal I was the most confident in achieving. Completed months before I had counted on it … Continue reading So long 2019
LGBT FANTASY ROMANCE READING CHALLENGE 2020!
I often see these challenges kicking about and thought it would be fun to make one. Specifically, a list that I can follow as I've been really slack on my reading. As in I read maybe five during 2019... all in the beginning half of the year. You're welcome to join me, all you need … Continue reading LGBT FANTASY ROMANCE READING CHALLENGE 2020!
To Target the Heart – 100%
It's been an age since I've commented on writing, especially on how far I've gotten with To Target the Heart. I've been so consumed with finishing that and getting Dark One's Bride ready (recently, its cover reveal) that a lot of things have been shuffled aside in favour of getting these final chapters done. After … Continue reading To Target the Heart – 100%
The Spellster Timeline
I've never been one for entirely rigid timelines when I'm in the middle of writing, but when I do make them, I'm generally going forward with the odd trip back for important points in the past. Not so with the spellster series. To Target the Heart starts months before In Pain and Blood and a few others … Continue reading The Spellster Timeline
At the beginning of the year, I set myself a few goals to complete by the end. Of course, none of those goals factored in the destruction that was our kitchen (which is still missing details but is also now fully functional) or the two funerals on my partner's side of the family (both his … Continue reading Goodbye 2018
No Kitchen – Day 1
The builders arrived today (hallelujah). My daughter and I had to leave super early anyhow because of the cultural festive her Kapa Haka group were participating in, so it wasn't too bad. We were able to have breakfast in relative peace before washing up and packing everything back into the dining room. The kitchen as … Continue reading No Kitchen – Day 1
For those of you in the know, I've been living with a water-damaged kitchen for some time now. All thanks to a cracked hot water pipe back on the third of June. Yeah... Facebook tells me it's been four months since I uploaded the video on it. The floor is... serviceable. Kinda. It's like a … Continue reading …Really?
Dylan of Demarn (of In Pain and Blood, by Aldrea Alien)
Dear readers, tonight with me is a spellster, eschewing the safety of the spellster tower for the freedom to roam the land.
He’s here to tell us about his life in the army, about how his first scouting mission went awry, and the mysterious and flirtatious Tracker.
Tell us a little about where you grew up. What was it like there?
I grew up in Demarn’s spellster tower. It was my whole world for much of my life, actually. It was more of a complex, us spellsters lived in the tower in the centre, surrounded by gardens and a thick wall where the servants lived.
It was peaceful. Really quiet despite the fact there were hundreds of us. Tracker says the spellster population alone was in the thousands, I don’t know if I should believe him but there were a lot of us. We were expected to train our magic…
