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.

I just found out someone I thought was a really nice, genuine, hard-working writer is not only a plagarist, but actually plagerized one of my favourite fanfic authors.

It's making me feel sick that I've been duped by this person, but also I'm feeling really fucking insecure about my fanfic right now. I'm torn between leaving it up for you guys, and wanting to protect myself by taking it all down.

Mostly, I'm just really fucking angry about the whole thing. The only saving grace is that the publisher was informed just after it was released, took it down and refunded people's money.

Muthafuckers...wine with lunch today, I think.

"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!!! ♥

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*

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

*hyperventilates* This is actually happening!


Okay...so the proofreader just sent back the changes to my m/s...688 commas in the wrong place...apparently I like a run-on sentence *points at self* Who? Me?

Anyway. It's late but I'm going to crack on and get the changes done tonight –– which means tomorrow, instead of doing my tax return, I will be attempting to make epub, mobi and PDF versions of the file.

Soooooo....

What would be great is if three two one zero people (one for epub, one for mobi, and one for pdf) fancied 66k of m/m old west shifter nonsense, with violence, gore, family feels, and piglets...if you could give the files a once over to make sure they had all the right pages in the right place, the links work, the type is readable....all those technical thingies that need looking at before I can sell the damn thing – that would be awesome sauce.

First come, first served.

Don't worry if someone gets there before you and you want a free copy. Once this is done I will be doing a post about free copies in exchange for an honest review. I just need to get my head around this bit first.

Oh god, this is really scary! Who the fuck said this was a good idea?

Love your faces : ) xx

I saw this on FB and omg if it isn't the perfect song for Stumble Forward! Esp the bit when Jensen gets the letter and races to Jared's house! Ugh! Just perfect. Or at least I think so. I'll leave the final verdict to [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal and [livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose coz they know the story even better than I do : )

Anyway...x

alexisjane: (j2 - were)
Just a quickie to say...



...I have a non-RPF version of No Lie on my website for those of you that don't like that kinda thing. Just clickety the pic for the original fic : )

Also, I maaaay have had an idea for a sequel that doesn't have one of them dying horribly. So that's nice : ) x

So yesterday, one of my family members started following me (author me) on Twitter.

As the kids would say, shits getting real, yo.

I've been ummimg and ahhing for ages about taking down some of my more extreme fic from AO3, and that's really made the decision for me. And I'm going to be f-locking most of the fic on my journal too.

So, if you want a Mobi or PDF of Gods and Monsters or Wheelhouse or whatever, go get it now, because in a week it'll be gone ♥
alexisjane: (a -Ohhh!)

A thoroughly enjoyable read, if a little gay.
Wonderful characterisation but a tangible lack of racing cars.


As written by my ex. I've no idea why he wanted to read it other than he's very supportive. Then he sent me an email to say he'd spotted two typos.

Then I got the link to say that now everyone can see my shoddy editing!! Yay!!

Question

So, I'm doing the cover letter thing for the New Writers' Scheme thing, and I have to say what genre Stumble Forward falls into.

M/M Romance doesn't seem quite right to me. Yes, it's technically that but given the level of angst and heartbreak, do you think that I should say it's M/M Romantic Drama...or some other kind of thing?

And yes, I am overthinking this. How can you tell? : )

I have no idea what I'm doing : ( xx

ETA I will shut up about this eventually, I promise xx
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
One of the recurring pieces of advice I got when I was talking to m/m authors at the UK Meet conference in September was that if you want to write in the genre, you have to read in the genre. Like, a lot.

Which made sense, and so that's what I've been doing. Also, in an effort to not ghosttown my writer's blog, I thought I could do a post every month to just list what I'd read and what I liked.

So this is it – My October Reads

There's shifter fic, panty fic, men with guns, gothic romance, Festive fic, dragons \0/ and sci-fi.

The post also clearly demonstrates why I don't ever get anything done : )



ION - The sore throat is back. Kill me now.

Love your faces xxx

Have the hearts gone massive for anyone else?

Just the last day or so the little red hearts are suddenly gigantic red hearts on every post.

Has there been an update or something, or is LJ just fucking with me again.

Fuck.

I finished my tax return this morning! So, now I'm anticipating the arrival of the Math Police any second to throw me in the slammer for not being able to add up right, and for claiming £3.70 for a bus ticket even though it's so faded it's only just legible, and what the hell do I think I'm doing, including double sided tape that I could be using for anything...

I may be slightly paranoid.

So, I mermaided myself while I wait for them to arrive.



Might be fuzzy coz I had to screenshot it coz it wouldn't save. I'd love to say it's uncannily accurate... : ) xx
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
Just saw a BBC news headline on the website - what does rosemary do to your brain?

My first thought was, whatever the fuck she wants! Don't mess with her, you'll just make it harder on yourself. I think maybe I should read some fic about bunnies or something for a bit.



Also, this morning I managed to gash a fucking hole in the bottom of my foot. It bled like a mother but it seems to be okay now and I can walk on it okay. I was wondering though, what's the best way to get blood out of a carpet. The thing was pouring for a bit and it's everywhere : (

Oh and Lily's being super sweet about it and coming up and sniffing it gently everytime she goes by! It's the cutest : ) xx
alexisjane: (a- like working with children)
...or not, and fucking hate yourself for it.

NEEDED!!

- A New Yorker with infinite patience and a reasonable knowledge of the city and it's workings, that I can fire questions at in no discernible order, so I don't end up sounding like an idiot for mentioning places that I may have passed through once with horrendous jet lag or glanced at on a map and thought, "Meh, that sounds okay." or have made up from watching too much Castle, Cagney and Lacey, and Murder She Wrote.

I will owe you any number of favours. And possibly sex.
