New Teaser: Apology

I missed a few teaser days, but here are my pirates again. 🏴‍☠️🌈

I’m still working on the first draft of this book, which means it’s too early to say when it’ll be finished. But I’m working really hard on it. 🖤

I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe! Happy Teaser Day! 🖤

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! 🖤🎃🖤

I know I haven’t been on here in a while. Sorry about that. I went through a pretty rough patch of depression. But…I’m feeling a little better now, and I plan to be more active in November! (I do have some lesbian pirates to share with you, after all! 🖤)

I hope you’re having a great Spooky Day, and as always, here’s our traditional Alana teaser! 🧛‍♀️🖤

Happy National Coming Out Day!

Happy National Coming Out Day to everyone who is coming out, already out, or not ready to come out yet! No matter which category you’re in, you’re just as valid and just as worthy of acceptance and love. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Sometimes, hiding the truth from others, or even yourself, is a matter of survival, and sometimes, coming out is a matter of survival. When I first came out to a few people I trusted, that’s what it was for me—a last ditch effort at just…surviving. I was so suicidal, and I felt like holding the truth inside had poisoned the air I breathed. But I also didn’t feel safe coming out to most people I knew. So, I came out to only a few people—people that I knew weren’t cruel or hateful, people who didn’t make me afraid. And it saved my life.

Eventually, I’d written books about queer women and had enough of an online presence that most everyone knew, and there was no point in hiding it anymore. And that was so freeing! 💙 But in the beginning, it was terrifying.

I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t STILL terrifying.

I’m sharing this for this reason: if this is you, if you feel like you’ll die if you have to bottle it up for one more day, but don’t feel safe coming out, let me know. I’ll be your substitute friend or family. I’ll tell you you’re perfect, just as you are, and worthy of love, just as you are.

Because I’ve been there, and someone did the same for me. We lose too many LGBTQ people to suicide, and I desperately don’t want that to be you. No matter who you are, I want you to know that I love you and want you to be here. Take care of yourselves, whether that means coming out or not. 💙

Fantasy World Map

Here’s the fantasy world map I made for my lesbian pirate book! 🏴‍☠️🌈 With color and without! And unfinished, obviously. 😅

Emilia, our witch-turned-pirate, is from Drakon Isle. Catherine, the ex-girlfriend who arrested her, is from the Illopian Kingdom. And our lovely pirate captain, Maria, was born in Aevaria, raised in Illopia, and now lives at sea. 🏴‍☠️

I think this might be my favorite world-building thing I’ve ever tried. 🖤 It was so time-consuming—but also so much fun! 🖤

Teaser: Minor Differences

Rose handles jerks with sarcasm, and her girlfriend handles them with dismemberment. Minor differences, you know? 😅

Happy Teaser Day! ❤️

“You cut off someone’s finger?!” Rose exclaimed. “Are you insane?”

“A bit, yeah,” Kara said, taking another sip of her wine. She chuckled, as she lowered the glass. “Don’t worry. He assured me there’d be no hard feelings.”

“Yeah, I’m sure I’d say that, too, if you sliced off my finger,” Rose said.
