Happy National Coming Out Day!

‪Happy National Coming Out Day! 🏳️‍🌈‬

‪I joke sometimes about how I basically just snuck out of the closet while no one was looking and hoped no one noticed.‬

‪But the truth is…coming out is hard. It’s a long process that is sometimes painful, sometimes dangerous, and never easy.‬

‪I hope you know that wherever you are in the process—already out, coming out, or not ready—you’re not alone, and you’re loved. And you have a queer family out there cheering for you. So, whether you stay in, come out slowly, or jump out when you’re ready…happy Coming Out Day. 💙

Happy International Lesbian Day!

Happy International Lesbian Day from your local, awkward, writing-obsessed lesbian! 😅 I hope you all had a good day! 🏳️‍🌈

And to celebrate, here’s the character aesthetic for our favorite lesbian, seductive, Viking-warrior-vampire: Kara! ❤️ (At least I hope she’s our favorite. That was awfully specific. 😂)

Quote from The Reign of Darkness, Book Four of the Creatures of Darkness Series.

Happy Bi Visibility Day!

Happy Bi Visibility Day to all of my bisexual friends and readers! 💖💜💙 You’re so valid and so awesome, and if anyone makes you feel less than, just pretend you’re Rose and melt their insides with your mind. Ahem…I mean… 😅‬

Love you guys! 💖💜💙

And…speaking of Rose…since it’s Bi Visibility Day, here’s Rose being very bi. 😂

Update on…Updates?

‪Hey, guys. Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I’ve been going through this super-long stretch of depression that just…refuses to end. Add some sleep-deprivation to that (I can’t even remember the last time I slept. Or what day it is, for that matter), and…yeah, I’m a mess. But I’ll try to get things caught up before the weekend. 💙

Pride Month: Announcements

Happy Pride Month! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

A couple of announcements:

1) I’m participating in two different Pride-themed hashtag games over on Twitter this month. So, I’ll be talking about Rose and Kara, The Reign of Darkness, writing, happy, gay stuff, etc., all month over there, if you’re interested. ❤️ (I think my Twitter feed also shows up on my website, if you don’t have Twitter?) 🧡

2) Also, The Reign of Darkness (Book Four of the Creatures of Darkness Series) should be released this month. 💛 (I tried for May. I tried so hard. But May just…sucked. Bad. So…so bad.) But (fingers crossed) this month!!! 💚 I’ll announce a specific date soon. 💙

P.S. – And to all of my LGBTQ+ friends and readers, I hope you have the best month! 🏳️‍🌈 Love you guys! 💜

Mental Health Awareness Month

Since Mental Health Awareness Month is coming to a close, here’s the scene from The Assassins of Light where Kara is just…amazing during Rose’s panic attack. 💙

And a reminder that bad mental health days happen, and it’s not your fault. It’s okay to reach out. It’s okay to need medication. It’s okay to need therapy. You’re doing great. 💙

I love you guys. Keep fighting. 💙

Happy Lesbian Visibility Day!

Happy Lesbian Visibility Day! 🏳️‍🌈

Sending love to all of my lesbian friends and readers today! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

And for encouragement, here’s a “pride” quote of our favorite lesbian, vampire, Viking warrior: Kara Unnarsdóttir:

“I know who I am. I always have. And I refuse to apologize for it.”

Love you guys! ❤️

Teaser: Dangerous Ladies

Okay, so, the funny thing about this teaser is that last week, on Twitter, there was this trend, where everyone was posting, “How you know I wrote it,” followed by a list of things that are in their books. This was mine:

So, yeah…like I said, dangerous ladies… 😂 

Excerpt:

Kara didn’t even attempt to resist, as Rose dragged her into the bedroom. She grinned, both brows raised. “I love it when you randomly make out with me.”

Rose closed the door behind them and then turned toward her, frowning. “What? That’s…not what I’m doing,” she stammered. “I just need to talk to you.”

Kara crossed her arms. “Well,” she complained, “that was misleading.”

Rose’s frown deepened. “How was it… You know what? Never mind.” She stepped closer. “You didn’t tell me your plan involved betrayal and murder.”

Kara shrugged lazily. “My plans always involve betrayal and murder.”

“I know, but Kara,” Rose sighed, “we’re supposed to be the good guys!”

Kara started laughing, as if that were the silliest thing she’d ever heard. “Oh, Rose,” she said, flashing a wicked smile, “I don’t think I ever agreed to that.”

Rose huffed out an exasperated sigh, as Kara turned to leave. “Fine. You can have your betrayal, but less murder, okay? Humans hate us enough already.”

Kara smiled and leaned against the door, pushing it open. “Anything for you, sexy,” she said playfully. Then, she winked and disappeared down the hall.

Rose rolled her eyes, suppressing a laugh.
