milly_gal has threatened me with all kinds of violence if I didn't partake in this meme, so have at it, hunny buns : ) xx

Post if it’s okay for your followers to leave you a comment telling you the one thing they remember you for as a writer.
Is it a scene or a detail or a specific line?
Is it something like style or characterization?
Is it that one weird kink they never thought they’d be into, but oh my god wow self-discovery time?

FLISTIE ALERT!

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] hugemind at The new TOS
It would be really helpful, if someone who actually knows the section of law mentioned in the new TOS posted to say what the new TOS really means. I have no idea what might result, but the new TOS states that Russian laws now rule and I have a really bad feeling about things. For example, there is this one ominous and bolded part in the new TOS (8.4) that for popular communities, "Community (the Community’s page) within 24 hours, the Community Owner shall be subject to Article 10.2 of the Federal Act of the Russian Federation No. 149-FЗ if more than three thousand Internet users access". Also, people who made comments in communities are according to 8.5 "subsidiarily liable in respect of Community Supervisor’ actions" whatever the heck that means. 9.1.3 says to mark as adult content everything that estimated by the Russian law is not suitable for kids. I don't much about them laws, but I do know that this means all same-sex content regardless of nature of the content (i.e. not just NC-17 or PG-13).

So I think that based on the above especially community owners really need to sit down and consider their option on what to do now. Especially owners of fic communities where people have posted fic in the community or ones that have unlabeled adult content (esp. same-sex), really need to make decisions based on the current incomplete information both to protect themselves and the people who have commented there. One specific example is the kink memes. Those could be lost soon and whatever the TOS mean, it could be also not good for the comm owner. It would probably not be a bad idea to save your absolute favorites from them.

If things start to go down, they may go down quickly as people may opt to be on the safer side and f-lock/delete/disappear. I urge everyone to consider the nature and extent of the content they have posted in their personal LJ/communities they own. To have at least some breathing room and not lose things dear to them/others, I recommend opening a dreamwidth account now and importing all your entries there. The process might take a bit time if many people are importing at the same time, but it is very simple to do and runs in the background after you tell it which parts of your LJ stuff you want to import (entries, comments(!), tags etc.). For communities, the community owner has to create a new comm at dreamwidth and then they can also import the community from LJ. Very simple but from what I see you need have accepted the new TOS for the import process to be able to verify your lj credentials. You can also automatically cross-post your entries from dw to lj and run both of them in parallel. The problem is that some communities have been abandoned and the owners are not around to import them. If you know these kind of communities, contact the people running them ask them to consider importing the content to dreamwidth.

Back things up somehow (dreamwidth, LJ export tool whatever) if you don't want to lose them, and if possible, grab at least your top five fave fics/posts you know are not available outside LJ. Backing up is always a smart thing to do, and I hope that this is not needed, but if it is, at least your content will not be lost. Don't fiddle too much with the style settings or anything that can be straightened out later. Rebuild your friend network the best you can, so there will be ways to get the word out where you are and what is going on. Spread the word that the TOS situation should be monitored carefully and the time to act with back ups is right now. Consider that communities that have become large databases of information (like [livejournal.com profile] spnstoryfinders, [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang or the kink memes) might be gone soon if not for the new TOS then for people reacting to the TOS.

Maybe a new dw comm could be helpful to inform fannish people of their options, get people in contact with LJ community owners, and organize campaigns to back up content. Or maybe there already is one in which case, please link me. I don't want to panic anyone but just to recommend people to be prepared and ready to move to another platform if we suddenly receive a word that it is the absolute best thing to do. In that case we can then leave in organized fashion. Personally, I have imported my LJ (with comments) to DW, exported my LJ entries as XML using the export tool, imported also [livejournal.com profile] spnematography to dw (under the same name), exported those entries as csv files, and I will try to figure out what more to do after I get back from work.

I am at dreamwidth and AO3 under this same username and over at twitter as underpurplesky. Feel free to friend me and/or leave me your information so I can friend you if I already haven't. I might be moving, but I am not leaving the fandom.

Why not...

alexisjane: (Writing)


I have rewritten Gazes Into You.

I always intended to publish this as an original fic... although I wasn't expecting on getting it out quite so soon.
I'm just waiting for it to get back from the editor and then I'll put it up on Amazon, etc. So, two weeks?

What this does mean though is that I'm going to be TAKING DOWN the J2 version. So, if you want to download that from AO3, do it soon.

Just so's you know, I am happy for the J2 version to be shared between y'all in the future. I just can't have it online with the official version available.

As always, I'll be giving out a bunch of ARCs (Advanced Review Copies) once I've formatted the files, so if you want to get one of those, just let me know. And I do a ton of giveaways and free promo stuff on a regular basis so if you don't want to pay cash money for this, there will be an opportunity to get your hands on it gratis in the future. All I ask is a quick review or rating on Goodreads or Amazon. Doesn't even have to be a positive one : ) No, really...it all about the algorithm...or something.

I have no idea what I'm doing...
Anyway.

I got four more planned in this series, so I'm hoping people like this one. I mean, creepy stalker ex-cop getting all hurt/comfort sexytimes with a *coughs*Stockholm Syndrome*coughs* much younger stranger... what's not to like!? : )

************


Ex-detective John Right likes to watch.
There's no harm in it.

The latest object of his obsession—a twenty-something stranger who chains his bike outside John's office—doesn't feel the weight of John's eyes on him, doesn't know about the secret recordings or what John does with them in the dead of night. Except when the kid disappears, John finds himself doing far more that just watching.
Reluctantly, John has to start thinking like a cop once more as he frantically tries to track down his mystery man. Although when he finds him, John is left with more questions than answers. And the more he learns, the more he wishes he'd never started looking in the first place.
Can John get to the bottom of the mystery without giving away his own dirty secret? And without giving in to his urge to do more than simply watch?

Well...nobody's perfect.

If you fancy a snippet from Alphas' Homestead Book Three, you're in luck! There's one on the blog post about Love Your Pet Day...which may or may not feature pictures of my dog ♥ x

Catcuddles is a no kill charity that takes in abandoned and mistreated cats. They have been adopting and fostering cats for years.  Greenwich Council have just refused them retrospective planning permission to take in cats.  This is where I got Felix from 2.5 years ago and they really care about cats.

There's a petition to the Council to allow them to continue taking in cats. I think it can only be signed by people in the UK (it can be signed by people in the US), but those on my flist who love cats could you please sign.

That thing where you're tracking your word count and you feel stupid having to put down "14" for your day total but then you know those words were damn good. That.

alexisjane: (a- Dean looking down)
For anyone who's interested...

I've written a short Valentine story over on RJ Scott's blog today. It's from the Alphas' Homestead series, set kinda after Book Two, I guess.

If you haven't read the books yet, it's only a little spoilery, and gives a taste of what the series is like. Also, you can win a free book!

RJ has had a whole bunch of guest posts this month so it's worth going just to check out some other authors stuff.

Anyway — Be My Valentine — clickety for adorable boys

Someone on a bullet journal comm mentioned this like it was no big deal...

Anyone fancy walking to Mordor? *waits for the Bean reply*

The Eowyn Challenge has a walking challenge, whereby the miles you walk in rl can be tracked to correspond with Frodo's journey in LoTR. Or Bilbo's.
It's so cool! If you can measure the distance you walk, you can see where you would be in the story and I'm geeking so hard right now...

I worked out that since January 1st I've walked 149 miles (I walk about 5 miles a day with Lily) so I'm two days out from Bree heading east towards Chetwood. How cool is that! I'm hoping to get to Rivendell by the end of April.

You can find the challenge here - The Eowyn Challenge
I think there are check-ins and whatnot but anyway...

Oh, and if you want to measure how far you walk, this thing is awesome. Also free. https://www.freemaptools.com/measure-distance.htm
alexisjane: (a- Dean looking down)
Peeps, I've been seeing this around several BuJo groups I'm in and was trying to resist but then I thought...meh, why not. We could all use a little cheering up at the moment.
So...if you'd like me to send you something next month (it will probably just be a postcard, not a letter). email me your address, and I'll put you on the list. Only 28 places obvs. Feel free to prompt me with a question too when you send your email : ) #incowrimo

So, you know all those times I bugged you last year about maybe voting for me in the Love Bytes Review polls thingy...?

*bites fist*



IMG_1996


Holy Moly! Home Is Where You Are made it through to the 2016 Book of the Year Poll on Love Bytes Reviews. Which is amazing!

It was properly gobsmacking to make it through the weekly and monthly rounds, so to see Caleb and Jacob's story up with all those other fantastic books at the end of the year is kinda crazy.

Obviously, if you would like to vote, that would be lovely. You can click Here, but mostly, I just wanted to say thank you.

Thank you to everyone who has bought, read and reviewed any of my books in 2016, thank you to everyone at Love Bytes who have been so supportive of my new venture, and thank you to everyone who voted for Home last year.

You guys are the best.

Chaps. I'm going to be here, doing this thing. If you want to come...do that. There'll be books, and wine...probably.
God, there better be wine.
Anyway.
This.

alexisjane: (j2 - crazy jared)
So, about a million fucking years ago (I'm not kidding) [livejournal.com profile] meesasometimes asked me for a little something.
Clearly, Hell has frozen over as I finally got around to doing it! For her birthday. Which is today.

Hope this is a little like you wanted, Hun, and I hope you have a fabulous day with those girls of yours ♥ ♥



Happy Birthday!!!! )

Day 2

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul.


This one's easy : )

One Small Step by [livejournal.com profile] sandymg  

I'd had thoughts and inklings and wonderings for years, but reading this fic made me realise that maybe there was actually something to it. A year later, I was diagnosed with Asperger's. Years and years of doctors and psychologists but it took sweet Jared for me to find out who I really am. If that isn't life changing, I don't what is : )  Thanks, Hun x
