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.

IT'S THE WEEKEND!!


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 : )

THIS IS THE MEME!!
(can you tell I have wine?)

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 )

Holy Moly!

My head's spinning a little.

It's been a fairly stressful couple of weeks and I've got a couple more to go – tether...I'm at the end of it – but today...

"Home..." is up for Book of the Week on Love Bytes reviews!!!

Which is kinda crazy as I hadn't realised the review had even come out yet, let alone that it received 4.5 stars!

The top two books from this poll go through to the Book of the Month thingy at the end of the month, which would be amazing, although I'm not holding out much hope with K-Lee Klien and Kade Harper on the list : ) But regardless it's an amazing feeling to see my name next to theirs so it's cheered me up no end.

If you like to vote for "Home..." I think you can just tickety the box on this link - POLL

It might seem a silly thing but it would help me a lot in getting the book "out there" which is the hardest thing when you're self publishing.

But also, I'm SUPER EXCITED about being in a poll!!!

Thank you for voting in advance ♥ ♥ ♥

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

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- Hmmmm)


Little Werewolf House is done!!!

At least the first draft is. I'll be making a call for betas in about two weeks, then the editing can begin.

Thank God it's over! 60k words in a month! Never doing that again xx

And yes I am drinking now...what did you think I'd be doing? *kisses*

*weeping*

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.

Lily has an ulcer on her eyeball.

I just can't right now.

It wouldn't be quite so bad but I have a dentist appointment now and a doctors appointment this afternoon and literally no one that I can leave her with.

She's in pain and can't see and I'm going to have to leave her alone for two hours.

Id ask for a break but being that I managed to borrow some money so I can pay for her treatment, I think I've had all the breaks I'm getting.

Fuck it all.
alexisjane: (a - really?)
I just read an article about a court case and I just...

RL dub con like...wtf? )

Just when you think you've heard everything, the capacity of human beings to do the most bizarre, stupid things never fails to surprise.


In other news, I was seriously impressed that I managed to do the dishes last night while under the influence. I was, however, surprised to find a ladder in my hallway, and that I answered a few comments* too! I should drink more often : ) Clearly, I get stuff done : )

Your faces...I love them ♥

*apologies for any overt dorkishness while hammered : /

The crazy times are almost over!

Visitors leaving tomorrow and TWRBB to post, then I'm just back to the regular mad rush work stuff...which I can handle...for two weeks or so.

Then...well, we'll have to see... But I'm pretty sure that's the light at the end, not a train, if you catch my metaphor.

Just quickly though...so many huge and wonderful thanks to all the people reading and commenting on my bb! The response has been crazy positive so far so thank you so much for that if I haven't replied to your comment yet. I will...eventually : )

BUT ALSO...

I'm up to do SMPC this week and I'm all out of fic ideas.
So if you have any prompts for a down and dirty, quick 2k Sam/Dean or J2 fic, let me have 'em, ladies! My muse is tired so I need stuff she can pick through til she falls in love.
I got something! Thank you for all the suggestions : )

I hope you're all okay. Can't wait to catch up with y'all soon!!! xxx
alexisjane: (j2 - kissing)


So, Lynn Anderson died, which is sad. Rose Garden is one of those songs that I love but also resent for being such an ear worm -- once I hear it I can't stop singing it!

But then all roads lead to Wincest...

H/c mini-ficlet or prompt if anyone one wants it : ) )
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- Hmmmm)
So, the epic second (third?) draft of the BB begins, and in an effort to break away from the  "He said. He said" thing, I'm making myself a crib sheet (or twelve) of words to use instead of, or in addition to 'said', so it reads a bit better.

I've taken suggestions from about five different sources and have amalamated them into a giant, vaguely alphabetical list. I'm going to try to wrangle it into something more usable at some point but I thought I'd leave it here just in case anyone else might find it useful.

If you spot any duplicates or omissions, do please let me know.

Gonna try and get some actual work done now : )

Miss your faces ♥

Long, Long, Long List of Words )

I really don't.

[livejournal.com profile] siennavie made me art for last years Big Bang.

I still can't quite believe it.

If you don't know her, then you definitely should get to know her, and leave her some love. Truly one of the sweetest most thoughtful people, and such a talented artist...I feel so overwhelmed that she would do this for me. Especially as I feel horrible that I haven't been around at all lately.

AND she made it so that it compliments [livejournal.com profile] mangacat's video for the fic too! How cool is that!




I really captures the feel of the fic for me, the lighting and the quiet intensity between them. I think it's just beautiful.

This was 'the little fic that could' for so long. I expect y'all are bored to tears with me talking about what a monumental struggle it was, but it does mean I feel ever so attached to the thing.

It was never going to get read by many people given the convoluted warnings – in a year I think I have 87 kudos on AO3 which some people seem to get in the course of a morning – plus the writing isn't that great but I love this story and it's characters, and to have someone make me something like this, for a story I hold so dear...yeah, I'm teary.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] siennavie. You're the bestest ♥

And if you're curious about the story and you don't want to ask me about it, you could always give [livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose a try, I think she's read it more times than me ; ) I really appreciate your support, Hunny, even if I don't get around to saying it.

I miss your faces.

But look at the pretty!! : )

Read On LJ / On AO3

Dearest Big Bang Author

I tried to resist you, but the lure of polyamorous J3 and J2M just proved too much.

Come make yourself known! There will be snuggling and cookies...maybe even art and stuff ♥


Title: Life Is
Pairing: Jared/Jensen/Misha
Rating: NC-17
Summary:
Life is what happens while you're making other plans. They've got it all figured out. Their life, their house, their mortgage, 'til death do us part – until that's what actually happens. It's way too soon when Jeff dies and leaves Jensen and Jared to sort out what they are without him. And then there's that guy at the funeral home with the sympathetic blue eyes who's the first and only one to get what it means to lose someone in a polyamorous relationship.

In the never ending fuckery that is the GoodReads debacle, this happened...




Dreamer is the main, if not only poster of fanfic (and authors personal details) on Goodreads and several other similar sites. This isn't my first, or even fifth rant at them (hence me losing my shit) and they are just too stupid to get it, so I am officially done.

But if they're telling the truth, then a simple line or two about not wanting links outside of fandom on your fic/journal/AO3 should stop them from adding your stuff where you might not want it to be.

I've been having a massive crisis of confidence about my writing.

I haven't really wanted to talk about it as I think it's perfectly normal and I've been trying not to let it get to me. But it's hard when I feel like I don't have the time to properly concentrate on my WIPs so they're rushed and scrappy, and the BB is just endless and wholly unsatisfying to write at the moment. I've been dragging my feet with it as I can't stand writing when every word is vile. And it has to be that way as that's just how my first drafts come out but editing seems like it's a lifetime away and I just...hate it.

And then this morning I received a comment on my BB from last year, on AO3 and...Christ, I cried. It was stranger, which shouldn't make a difference but I think it does as they have no reason to be nice to me. And they were just so complimentary and invested in the characters and the story. They really connected with it emotionally and they asked for more.

I feel like I couldn't ask for anything better. It really helped to remind me that I may not be the best writer but I can tell a story that people want to read when I put my mind to it. It feels like a weight has be lifted and I'm actually looking forward to getting down to my BB this afternoon and making some headway.

Anyway, it made me really think.

Please...

When you read something someone has taken the time to write, please leave a little comment to let them know.

Even if you thought it wasn't all that, pick out a positive thing about it and say something nice.

If you don't have time to write a gushing review, just a smily face could make their day.

If you want to lurk, that's cool. But just a little wave to say you appreciate someone taking the time - to write 2.5k of Samstiel, 100k of crossover gen or some chibi!J2cowboys or whatever you find that makes you smile - doesn't mean you have to give up your anonymity. We won't hunt you down.

Writing is hard. Art is hard.

Typing : ) or ♥ in the comments takes less than two fucking seconds. And it can make so much difference to the way someone is going to feel that day.

Anyway. That's it. Rant over.

And thank you to everyone who comments on my stuff. You lovely enablers, you ♥ xxx
