My new release is on sale! Light romantic m/m with some steamy sex…

piggybankWell I’ve been hawking my wares all week since my first release with Loose Id came out October 14, 2013. But for those thrifty readers who haven’t taken the plunge I thought I would mention Loose Id has it on sale right now!

It’s a light romantic m/m novella because sometimes that’s the mood your in. If you just want something about two people who meet and have amazing chemistry, hot sex and possibly fall in love then this might be the story for you. Because sometimes you don’t need a story that changes the world, you just crave one that changes your mood for the better.

A little Vampire element never hurt anyone

Vlad_Tepes_002I’m writing a story with a vampire element in it and this fellow Vlad Tepes is mentioned in it. He was not the nicest guy. He had the nick name The Impaler and I don’t think the ladies meant it in a good way.

Even during his lifetime, Vlad III Țepeș became famous as a tyrant taking sadistic pleasure in torturing and killing.[citation needed] He is shown in crypto-portraits made during his lifetime in the role of cruel rulers or executioners. After Vlad’s death, his cruel deeds were reported with macabre gusto in popular pamphlets in Germany, reprinted from the 1480s until the 1560s, and to a lesser extent in Tsarist Russia. As an example of how Vlad Țepeș soon became iconic for all horrors unimaginable, the following pamphlet from 1521 pours out putative incidents like this one:[13]

“er liess kinnder praten die musten ire mütter essen. Und schneyd den frawen den prüst ab den musten ire man essen. Darnach liess er sie all spissen.”

He roasted children, whom he fed to their mothers. And (he) cut off the breasts of women, and forced their husbands to eat them. After that, he had them all impaled

Vlad the Impaler as Aegeas, the Roman proconsul in Patras, crucifying Saint Andrew. Approximately 1470–1480,Belvedere Galleries, Vienna.[citation needed]

Estimates of the number of his victims range from 40,000 to 100,000.[14] According to the German stories the number of victims he had killed was at least 80,000. In addition to the 80,000 victims mentioned he also had whole villages and fortresses destroyed and burned to the ground.[15]

Impalement was Vlad’s preferred method of torture and execution. Several woodcuts from German pamphlets of the late 15th and early 16th centuries show Vlad feasting in a forest of stakes and their grisly burdens outside Brașov, while a nearby executioner cuts apart other victims. It was reported that an invading Ottoman army turned back in fright when it encountered thousands of rotting corpses on the banks of the Danube. It has also been said that in 1462 Mehmed II, the conqueror of Constantinople, a man noted for his own psychological warfare tactics and the impalement of subjugated peoples in the Ottoman Empire, returned to Constantinople after being sickened by the sight of 20,000 impaled corpses outside Vlad’s capital of Târgoviște.[16]

Allegedly, Vlad’s reputation for cruelty was actively promoted by Matthias Corvinus, who tarnished Vlad’s reputation and credibility for a political reason: as an explanation for why he had not helped Vlad fight the Ottomans in 1462, for which purpose he had received money from most Catholic states in Europe.[citation needed] Matthias employed the charges of Southeastern Transylvania, and produced fake letters of high treason, written on 7 November 1462.[citation needed]

What soups do you try when you’re under the weather?

tortillasoup3Feeling under the weather today and soup seems like something that is always perfect at times like these. This Spicy Tortilla soup would be perfect if I wasn’t feeling so lazy. Although the recipe doesn’t seem too complicated. Maybe even I could handle it!

Puree 2 seeded, soaked ancho chiles, 1 onion, 2 tomatoes and 2 garlic cloves; fry in oil. Add 6 cups chicken broth, 4 torn corn tortillas, some shredded cooked chicken and 1/2 cup cilantro; simmer until thick. Add salt; garnish with crisp tortilla strips, Mexican cheese, avocado, cilantro and lime juice

Happy Birthday to me!

Well happy birthday to me!

My first ever release with Loose Id Publishing came out last night October 14.  It was so odd that it was released on my actual birthday. Completely by coincidence believe it or not. Hopefully that will bode good things for me as an author. Perhaps the universe has aligned with me. It couldn’t hurt, right?

Josh Lanyon wants to know what this newbie is thinking…

autmn3I’m honored that Josh Lanyon, my favorite m/m author, has decided to peer into the dark abyss of this newbie’s mind. He’s decided to do an interview with a brand new author. He chose me and I’m so excited!

My first book comes out next week Tuesday October 15th, 2013 and he thought it might be interesting to observe the journey. I’m a willing test subject in the lab of the mad scientist hidden deep within Josh’s soul.

Hopefully my experiences will be interesting and helpful to others, they might sometimes be painful too. Who knows? But I swear a solemn oath to be forthright and honest in my answers even if they might sometimes show me in an unflattering light. And Lighting is so important to a girl.

So come by and visit me. Tell me your suggestions and share your wisdom with me.
