Thank You!

Pirates of Aletharia has officially passed the 900 rating and review mark on Amazon! 💙 And we seem to be approaching 200 on Audible? 💙 I (obviously) never expected this, and I’m so grateful. 💙

Thank you for giving my snarky lesbian pirates a chance! 💙

Dragons of Aletharia

Obviously, Aletharian dragons are massive and terrifying with broken scale, scars, and big teeth, but in Em’s head, they’re the adorable beasties who listen to her stories when they’re not barbecuing people.

I put her in charge of the graphic, so here we are.

Meet (some of) the dragons of Aletharia. 🏴‍☠️🌈

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. 💙

New Teaser: A New Destination

First teaser from the lesbian pirate sequel! 🏴‍☠️🌈

(And I’m already having to bleep Maria’s language. 😅)

Did you notice how Emilia’s graduated from Maria’s “fascination” to “the woman who loves her?” ✨Progress!✨

Maybe in fifty years, Zain will actually compliment her. 😅

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this tiny snippet of Goddess of the Sea. I can’t wait to share more with you! 💙

And I hope you all have an awesome weekend! 💙


I hope you’re all having a wonderful month. 💙

I recently found out that Pirates of Aletharia won I Heart Lesfic’s Book of the Month Award in the Fantasy Romance category. 💙

Lesbian Pirate News

So…bad news and good news. 🏴‍☠️🌈

Earlier this week, something went very wonky when I submitted the Pirates of Aletharia manuscript, and Amazon cancelled the preorders (which is just a nightmare, really). But I’m trying to stay optimistic! So, the good news is: it’ll go live as soon as they approve it.

So, it’ll be out, as planned, on the 21st (if not earlier). But it’ll have a new link and no preorder period.

To everyone who preordered, your excitement still means the world to me, whether it worked out or not. 🖤🖤🖤 So, thank you so, so much, and I’ll hope you’ll still be excited when the new link’s up. 🖤🖤🖤

I’ll share the new link with you as soon as I have it! 🖤🖤🖤

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. ❤️
