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.”

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.

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). ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

Teaser: Erik

A couple of weeks ago, I had a request for an Erik teaser, so…here you go! 😁💙💙

(Also featured: Ligeia being Too Serious™️ for Rose. 😅)

Teaser: Kallias

Ahhh, sorry! I was swamped with work this week and forgot to post our Thursday Teaser! ❤️ But here it is! I hope you like it! ❤️

Rose and Kallias have a very specific dynamic… 😂

When Kallias finished wiping the blood from his hands—or trying to, at least—he tossed the towel aside and sighed, “What are you doing here, Rose?”

Rose shoved her hands in her pockets and shrugged. “Same as usual?”

Kallias crossed his arms and flashed a bitter smile. “Pissing me off?”

“I was going to say saving your life,” Rose mumbled, “but yeah, that, too.”

Kallias shifted his gaze toward Kara, scowling at her blood-soaked battle-axe. “Rose, will you please tell your girlfriend to stop dripping blood on my floor?”

Rose glanced at Kara, who was standing right beside her—definitely within hearing range. “Umm, she has ears, actually?” she told him. “So, I don’t have to?”

Kara flashed a smug smirk at Kallias. “He’s just jealous of my battle-axe.”

“Yes, Kara,” Rose muttered, “I’m sure that’s exactly what he’s jealous of.”

Happy (Belated) St. Patrick’s Day 💚

I meant to post this last week, but life got super-busy, and I forgot. As usual. 😅 But I hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day! 💚💚💚💚

Because I’m a dork who likes holiday-themed stuff, here are a few lines from the pre-battle “good luck kiss” in The Tomb of Blood (Book‪ 2 of the Creatures of Darkness Series).‬ 💚💚💚💚

P.S. – Umm, also…you may have noticed my website went all wonky last week? 😂 (I think it was because it was my renewal date?) It took me a few days to fix it, but it’s fixed now. So…if you were one of the people who visited while it was wonky, sorry! I promise it’s not always like that. 😂
