Thank You 💙

At some point last week, Pirates of Aletharia received its 500th Amazon review. 💙 I’m utterly amazed.

And so, so grateful. 💙

Thank you all for reading! And for showing so much love to these lesbian pirates and their meddling ship cat! 💙

I feel like I could say thank you every day, and it still wouldn’t be enough. But hopefully, my periodic thank you’s reach you, at least. 💙

I love writing so much, and I’m grateful every day I get to do it.

You have no idea how many writer’s blocks and self-doubt spirals your support and kind words have pulled me through.

I appreciate you all more than I could ever say, and I can’t wait to share Em and Maria’s next adventure with you. 💙

Happy Pride!

It’s Pride Month, y’all! 🏳️‍🌈

This is the month every year where the LGBTQ community gets supercharged by rainbows, and bigots have their socks eaten by dryers. If the universe gets the formula wrong, don’t forget to file a formal complaint, okay?


Seriously, though, I hope you all have a wonderful month!

Happy Pride! 🏳️‍🌈 And in case no one has told you recently…you’re perfect the way you are. ❤️

Happy Pride and a Teaser

Happy last day of Pride Month! 🏳️‍🌈

I completely forgot to share our teaser on Thursday, so for the last teaser of Pride Month, here’s Kara being “very proud of herself” …instead of preparing for an apocalypse. 😂

Rose gave her a skeptical look. “You haven’t had time to warn them that they’re all going to die, but you’ve had time to tell them I’m your new girlfriend?”

Kara grinned, her light blue eyes sparkling. “I’m very proud of myself.”

Rose tilted her head, flashing a sassy smile at her. “Aren’t you always?”

“Uhh, hello?!” the vampire interrupted. “You said the world is ending?!”

Teaser: Defying Fate

Happy 3rd Teaser Day of Pride Month! 🖤🏳️‍🌈🖤🏳️‍🌈🖤

“I’ve defied fate at every turn for you.”

“I know,” Kara sighed. “And I have no right to ask you to do it again.”

Rose turned toward Kara, studying her with a frown. “Ask me, anyway.”

Kara’s light blue gaze shifted up, meeting Rose’s. “What?”

Rose stepped closer. She reached up, brushing her fingertips over Kara’s face. She watched as Kara’s eyes closed, as she leaned forward. “Ask me, anyway,” Rose repeated. She tilted her face, her lips brushing Kara’s. “Because I’ll say yes.”

Her voice was barely a whisper, now. “I’ll always say yes.”

P.S. – I have a few more posts planned for this weekend—including one about my next book! 💙 Happy Pride Month! 🏳️‍🌈

Teaser: Bedtime Dispute

For the second Teaser Day of Pride Month, here’s Rose and Kara having a Totally Normal™️ bedtime dispute. 😅

“You’re not keeping a battle-axe in the bed that we share.”

Kara stepped closer, before taking another sip of her drink. “Why not?”

Rose lifted both eyebrows, unable to hide her smile. “Because it’s sharp!”

Kara leaned closer. “So are you,” she said, tapping Rose’s chest with the bottom of her glass. Her lips curved into a smile. “But I still keep you in my bed.”

Rose opened her mouth and closed it again, blushing at the implications. Finally, she managed, “Mental sharpness doesn’t hack people’s heads off, Kara.”

Teaser: Type

Okay, let’s be honest, though: Kara knows way more than five thousand ways to kill someone. 😂💜

Rough week, so I’m horribly late on this one. But Happy (belated) Teaser Day! 💜💜💜

(The Reign of Darkness, Book Four of the Creatures of Darkness Series, is coming soon! 💜💜💜)

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! 💜

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.”

(From The Tomb of Blood, Creatures of Darkness: Book 2, ©️Britney Jackson)

Love you guys! ❤️

Character Flags

Last week was Pride Flag week for #LGBTQwrimo on Instagram and Twitter, so I made this fun little thing for The Reign of Darkness. 😊❤️

Rose Foster, the protagonist of The Reign of Darkness (and the entire Creatures of Darkness Series), is bisexual, and her girlfriend, Kara Unnarsdóttir, is a lesbian. 🏳️‍🌈

Other queer characters include: Elise (bi), Owen (gay), Tom (gay), Talulah (lesbian), Aaron (bi), Zosime (lesbian), Ligeia (lesbian), and Alana (bi). ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Rainbow Aesthetic

“When I think about her, I’m immensely happy.” – Rose


There’s this Thursday Aesthetic thing that writers do on Twitter… (I’m always like seventeen years behind on everything, so you probably know more about it than I do. 😂)

Anyway, the theme for this last week was rainbow (which is kind of perfect). So, I made this one for Rose and Kara. ❤️

And I figured I’d share it with you guys, too. 😊❤️

P.S. – If you’ve read The Assassins of Light, you probably recognize that quote. 😉
