FLISTIE ALERT!

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.

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

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*

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.

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!!!! )
alexisjane: (J2 - Festive)
I know today is somewhat special in parts but...is anyone sober enough to give a quick once over to a pinch hit Xmas gift? I'd love to get it to the giftee today if I can.

Ta, sweetie *kisses you*

Talk of injury, armed forces fatalities, PTSD, some sex, nothing very explicit or graphic...written so quickly, my brain hurts

alexisjane: (J2 - So Cute!)
What do you get the girl who has everything?

Why this of course!

Happy Birthday, Somer!!


This may or may not be safe for work... )

"Home Is Where You Are" is up for Book of the Month!!



You guys were so amazing at voting when I was up for Book of the Week, you all got me through to Book of the Month!

Which means I get to ask you to vote for me ALL OVER AGAIN!!

I don't hold out much hoping of topping this one as I'm up against, amongst others, Lisa Henry, who is one of my favorite writers (Discontented Winter on AO3) but it would be nice to give a shot.

So, if you have a minute and your finger feels like making a clicking motion of some kind, the page is here - Love Bytes

It's only open til Friday, and I think you can only vote once.

I know it seems silly but stuff like this really helps to get the book out there...which gives me the chance to write more books.


Thank you so much in advance!!! ♥

Anyone else ever get those comments that just scare the shit out of you for no reason?
This made me proper lol. I was totally ready to get all defensive : ) x


alexisjane: (UkMeet happy to hug badge)
This was pretty much me all weekend. I successfully managed to avoid eye contact with Jordan Hawk for three days (Go Me!) although I did accidentally talk to Jay Northcote...she was really nice about it though : )

Gonna spend the day with me mam and try to decompress a little so I can start writing tomorrow in earnest. Knackered but inspired is a weird combination.

Your faces...I miss them ♥

alexisjane: (cowboy)
I think the fan in my iMac is busted. It's been getting scary hot and I suddenly realized that I can't hear anything like a fan going on with it. I'm guessing it's full of dog hair. Which means I'm going to have to send it away for repairs. I feel like I might die if it leaves this room...

Anyway...this happened...

Returning Home is live a little early! Still waiting on Amazon and D2D but AllRomance and Smashwords seem to be up, as is Payhip if you fancy 25% off.

Alternatively, I have a couple of ARCs left, so if you're quick and can leave a review at some point, you can get a free copy!

Links and stuff )

Hoping to god this part's alright, and the formatting is okay, and the files aren't corrupted, and I replaced all the proofing errors, and that I spelled the name of the book right...*weeps*

Returning Home


Three years after Jacob Carpenter landed on Caleb Fletcher’s doorstep, the Alpha mates return to the city they grew up in to be married.

Aside from the sheer exhaustion of traveling across the country with three children in tow, both men step foot back in New York filled with apprehension about what kind of reception they will receive from their families after abandoning their respective packs.

At first it seems they are welcomed home with open arms and much excitement about their wedding but it soon becomes clear that not everyone is so happy to see the prodigal sons return.

Indeed, Caleb finds himself wondering if Jacob will go through with the ceremony at all, or whether it would be better to pack up his mate and their children, and head back to Nebraska before the situation does irreparable damage to them both.




Sometimes you have to leave a place to realize it’s exactly where you ought to be.

Novella – 36k+
Warnings – angst, family discord, angst...bit more angst. Maybe even a bit more than that. Sexytimes. HEA.


I may be a little bit nervous...just a little bit...

*weeps*
alexisjane: (humbert)

For half an hour tonight, starting at 9pm BST (1pm EDT, 4pm PDT, I think) I'll be at Victoria Sue's release party on Facebook talking about Home Is Where You Are, werewolves, and...well, whatever you want to talk about, I guess.

I've never done one of these before but I think readers just come by and ask questions and we chat...? I don't even know. So if you have time to drop by, it would be nice to see some friendly faces : )

Also, I'll be doing a giveaway of a paperback and some other swag thingies...which may or may not be an incentive : )

Anyway. That's where I'll be. Hope you can pop by xx

I'm on the All Romance Books Best Seller list!

What the actual hell?!

The book's only been on there 36 hours! I can only assume all y'all have been on there and order three copies each.



I just can't even.

*squishes you all*

Yesterday was long. So long it didn't finish until the early hours of this morning. There were many tears of frustration and panic but I'm almost done. Just waiting for Createspace to do its thing and then I can get back to the fun stuff : )

But right now, I'm led out with the dog, feeling like a wet noodle and trying to will myself to go get something decent to eat. Except I just have to listen to this song one more time.

Perfect song, perfect video, perfect cutie. Perfect.



Maybe just more listen : ) xxx
