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.

alexisjane: (happy dance)


Starting this week, I'm giving myself the weekends off (except for Sunday promo, obviously) because for the last few months I've been working every day and I'm genuinely worried I'm going to burn out.

So, this weekend, I'm doing a meme!! ...well...[livejournal.com profile] milly_gal said I should do the meme, so I'm doing the meme : )

(can you tell I have wine?)

Borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] themegalosaurus:

Send in a character (or ship, I guess. Sam/Dean, J2, Sterek, my original fic) and a number from this list and I will write a headcanon based on the word.

Get your prompts here <3 xx )
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

alexisjane: (a - really?)

That's me by the way^^^ : )

Three things!

1. I'm trying to post a bit more and that's going okay, but if you missed it, there's a new comm called [livejournal.com profile] amilliondays, set up in response to the shit-fest that is 2016, and inspired by the 100 Days of Happiness meme that's going around. People have been cross posting their happy thoughts there, but just to be awkward, I've just been posting random things that have made me smile. I could cross post to here but...nah. Come on over and share the love yourselves!

ii Tomorrow I'm been asked to do some sort of Facebook author chat event thingy to help with someone's book launch...I've no idea what the fuck is going on as usual.
Anyway, I have to turn up and talk about stuff, and do a giveaway, apparently?
I figured that I could giveaway a paperback copy of Home Is Where You Are as they're available now with some other swag type stuff, but I have to ask a question for people to win it. I've no clue what sort of thing to ask so if y'all have any bright ideas, prompt me bitches.
I'll drop a post here tomorrow when it's on so you can pop by if the mood takes you : )

Three. I'm up for SMPC on Sunday. Any requests?

My writing mojo is weak right now so situational prompts using the J's from Sunday Maybe Monday, Gazes Into You, Stumble Forward, Dot the 'i', or Teenchesters would be lovely. Feel free to suggest anything you like. I might not use it but it might get some idea growing in my head. If there's room...otherwise it'll be manips again : )

Hope y'all are doing okay. Hang in there, peeps ♥
alexisjane: (bouncy)
OMG I just finished the last commission of the year, which means I am DONE! I have mailing to do but otherwise that's it! \0/

I'm feeling crazy positive about next year, health, writing and art-wise, so I just can't wait to clear the decks, do the festive thing and then get on with it!!

In the meantime : ) ...snaffled from everyone...

- Post a list of 10 of your favourite fandoms. (I don't think I have ten so here's...some)
- Have your friends list guess your favourite character(s) and pairing(s) from each fandom.

1. Supernatural - 8 characters, 2 pairings.
2. Teen Wolf - 6 characters, 1 pairing, 1 threesome
3. The Blacklist - 6 characters, 2 pairings.
4. Sherlock/Elementary (I like them both, shut up) - 6 characters, 1 pairing.
5. MCU - 7 characters, 2 pairings

Totally excited to go do some housework now!! : ) xxx

The Assumption Game

How to Play:

alexisjane: (Dot The i)

I'd like a few more questions before I start filling for the next post, so if anyone would like to ask anything...I miss my boys ♥ x

alexisjane: (a- huh?)
Okay, totally forgot...tomorrow is my journal's first birthday!!

\0/ Yay!!

So tonight (once I've done my paperwork) I'm going to do an audio version of the Quick! I'm Drunk...Ask Me Anything game.

You can ask me a tmi question or something about fandom or my fic or this year or whatever you like and I will record the answers tonight and post them tomorrow...

...once I've done my paperwork *sighs*

So leave your question in the comments and I will do my best to answer...and I might even be drunk enough to sing like [livejournal.com profile] siennavie asked : /

Love your faces!!

Paperwork : ( xxx

10 Things.

Oh my lordy...so close. I have to be done tomorrow with this commission before she sues my ass...I can't wait to think about something else!  Anyway...I was going to wait til I was done but...well...wine...

10 fannish things that no-one knows about me...stolen from everyone : )

1. I wear Dean's ring and I have the possession symbol and quote from BtVS tattoos.


2. The fic that got me into the fandom was Mile High Club by [livejournal.com profile] merihn. I'd happened upon LJ and read some things but when I read this...I don't know...there was something about it. It was sweet and hot and I ended up reading everything of hers and when I was done I checked her flist and that's how I got to [livejournal.com profile] ash_carpenter's journal. You know the rest from there : )

3. Since 9.23, I've only managed to watch one episode of SPN, Yellow Fever. I'm still upset.

4. My favorite SPN quote, which I find is the perfect balance of horrifying and so funny..."Yes! It's me. Lilith!" *clings to it*

5. I get so overly invested in fictional characters that I stop watching shows because I just can't stand it...House, Dexter, Millennium, X-Files, Hannibal, etc, etc. Sometimes I deliberately watch shows knowing they've been cancelled in the first season (Life, Raines, The Unusuals, The Dresden Files) so that I know I'll make it to the end : /

6. To my knowledge I have watched every single episode of Murder, She Wrote, including the Magnum PI crossover. I have an idea for a pitch to relaunch the series but I'm too scared to write it.

7. I own all but the three latest Stephen King books, including the pop-up version of The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, but I haven't read them all. But that's because I've read The Stand about 12 times.

8. I think Jared is just...well. I think Jensen is the perfect guy. But I would marry Ty Ollson in a heartbeat.

9. I used to be able to recite the Exorcizamus Te (long form from Jus in Bello) by heart but I've forgotten most of it. I need to practice.

10. Okay...desperate and the wine is kicking in...my son really really looks like Jared Padalecki...like a lot...with the hair and everything...although he's only 6'2"...and NO I'm not sending any of you perverts pictures! We don't talk about it.

I showed you mine...pull up those skirts, ladies : ) x
alexisjane: (a- Dean looking down)
I've seen this everywhere but [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal asked for it so... : ) x

  1. How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for?
    I first found my way to the SPN Family and fanfic on LiveJournal last year. I read for a few months before writing something  and posting it with a huge amount of support from [livejournal.com profile] ash_carpenter and haven't stopped since : )

Blatherings.... )

alexisjane: (a- like working with children)
So, after working on a story for about 25 years, finally writing it down and giving yourself RSI in the process, after getting the draft in when you thought you weren't going to make it, after hitting 55k when you thought you were going to struggle to reach 20k, after doing a second draft  and finally sending it off to be beta'd, what do you do? Take a rest? Have an early night? Catch up on some housework?

No. Apparently, you stay up all night...again (Yup. No sleep here) and podfic a story that basically has no punctuation in it.

Cause you're a masochist.

But then you do get to watch the ep : ) and take part in the wonderful Ask The Author thingy over on [livejournal.com profile] rlbivob

I think I'll try a nap now x
alexisjane: (a rlbivob2)
Today it's rlbivob's


And in light of said celebration we'll be hosting our very first
Ask The Author tonight!
So keep an eye out for the post and COME ON OVER and ask Golden all those questions you've been dying to about the fic, the characters and writing in general. Talking RLBIVOB will only encourage and inspire the muse, so let's do this thing! ♥
