Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day!

Although, everyday is Random Acts of Kindness Day in fandom, I guess : )

Anyway. I wrote a quickie blog post about it.

This is it. http://alexjane.info/random-acts-of-kindness-day/

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.

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

Looking to get some reviews on Amazon (US and UK) and Goodreads for 'Tis the Season. I have 28 copies to give away.
27k - 81 pages - festive romance - second chances - contemporary

So far the feedback has been great, but books live and die with reviews--and I'm talking quantity not quality very often. Give me a three-star, one word review on anything I write and I'll be a very happy bunny--and right now this is dying (poor little book) So I'm on a review drive!


Blurb and whatnot... )

Win Signed Copies and Other Things because I'm a year older!!


So, it was my birthday the weekend before last and I fully intended to do something lovely for my readers to celebrate. But then I ended up pretty much just enjoying my birthday and didn't get around to it. And then work happened, and then I went away for more birthday shenanigans...needless to say, no prize draw happened.

Instead, you'll just have to put up with a post-birthday-post-unbirthday extravaganza of goodies!!

Signed paperback copies of both Home Is Where You Are and Returning Home, some of the bits and pieces that I had in the UK Meet swag bag, plus bonus Curly Wurly...and maybe some other things if I can get them ready in time for posting.

The draw will last from 12am - 4 Oct to 12am - 8 Oct GMT and I'll announce the winner on Sunday!

Just wanted to leave a quick note to say thanks so much to everyone who came to the release party thingy last night. It ended up being loads of fun! : )

Also, I'm leaving the giveaway post up on my blog until 9pm BST tonight. So, if you fancy winning a paperback copy of "Home...", just pop over and leave a comment so I can put your name in the hat** : ) xxx

*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
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
Yeah, I am. On Pinterest. Coz I joined it.



Can you tell I'm tired? I'm quite tired. Bed now.

Miss your faces xxxx

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- oh abbadon)
The dog that has been staying went home today. Usually Lily is relieved, but this time she's pining for him.

I, however, am relieved. Very fudging relieved.

I've got a week to finish this damn book. I'm behind, and feel like I'm flagging badly but I think I can do it. Only 20k to go. *cries*

Anyway...love your faces...esp if they're anything like this : ) xxx

I promise I will shut up about this eventually...

I wrote a thing about having my short story published and RJ Scott put it on her blog...where people can see it!

I'm not hyperventilating, you're hyperventilating.

Also...like some kind of...I don't even know what...I now have a Goodreads Author page.

How fricken ridiculous is that! Anyway, if you do the Goodreads thing you can friend me or somethingorother, also there's an Ask the Author thing when you can ask me embarrassing questions and I'll come up with some insane story about being a competitive alpaca breeder in my spare time, or something. And you can leave a review for my story, if you feel like it. I won't cry. I probably won't cry. Okay, there maybe crying.

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!!

Today, the delicious Clare London has allowed me to write a rambling post as part of her Birthday Blog month, about starting out as a writer of m/m.

When I signed up to take part, I didn't have a clue what to write so hopefully I've not screwed up. Or sound like a dick.

Anyway...you can read the post here.

What a way to start the week! x
alexisjane: (happy dance)


So as the New Year advances upon us like a herd of rabid alpaca...I'm off to bed.

I had intended to stay up but I'm suddenly tired and the asshats next door are already building up to something truly loud so, I think it's best that I'm unconscious before they get there.

Thank you all so much for getting me through this last year. I can't express how much I'm looking forward to spending the next twelve months with you all!!

I think if we wish hard enough, we can tulpa ourselves an excellent 2016 : )

See you on the other side!

Love your faces xxxxx

Week 53

Me talking about my *feelings* )

Me talking about the tattoo...and *feelings* )

Anyway...it's looking pretty dark and angry right now, but it's going to settle down into light sepia eventually. It's weird how I feel like I was walking around with something missing for so long, and now I'm complete. It's a nice way to start the new year : )

Actual picture here : ) )

So, today has been rather nice!

I won a thing!

This is 100% down to [livejournal.com profile] wings128 who I made the thing for, and I have a sneaking suspicion may have nominated me (Actually...I have no idea! Did you?!) So, that was rather awesome.

And it's no surprise to me that so many of my flisties are on the winners rostrum, coz you guys are just wonderful and so, so talented. Congratulations to everyone : )

And then wings...again!!...posted a lovely rec of my Halloween fic! I wasn't sure anyone would read the weird little thing, so for her to make a post about it is super fucking special to me. Thank you so much, Darling : ) Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] somersault_j too, for making me post it in the first place : )

And then...Lily, who has been super, super sick with kennel cough, actually hasn't coughed at all today and there's been minimal snottage too! \0/ Which is super awesome as I have a hospital appointment on Tuesday and she has to be well enough to go to daycare.

And theeeen, I got to see my neice (not really my neice but the connection is too complicated to explain so henceforth...neice) in the park and she was adorable!! She even let me hold her, despite her going through a super clingy period right now, so that was lovely.

Also, last night for Halloween I watched Hellboy, which I haven't seen in ages and it was fun! I forgot how much fun it was.
And then I read The Tutor by Bonnie Dee...

...which is fucking fantastic! An m/m gothic romance, in which a guy fakes his way into becoming a tutor for twin boys living in a drafty mansion, with their grief-stricken, and coincidentally, handsome father. I really enjoyed it. The writing is fantastic, and the story is brilliant. Dont be fooled by the "Sound of Music/Secret Garden" comparison in the description. It's a ghost story – more Woman in Black than Jane Eyre if you ask me. I genuinely got the shivers at a couple of points...and not just coz of the sexytimes either! : ) But anyway. Not a waste of pennies. I shall definitely be reading it again : )

So, that was nice too : )

Let's hope the rest of the week keeps being nice. I could use it! Love your faces xxx

So, my mom is doing her best to out me as a gay porn writer and I was sad about it...so [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal made me a lovely fraternal incest banner art thing to cheer me up!!

She succeeded by the way (and if you don't hear "that's what she said" in Dean's voice after that sentence, you might wanna reconsider why you're here)


Naked man parts and such... )

Curious...
