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.
Anyway.
This.

Final call before I have to go ask strangers

Any New Yorkers, or 'Mericans in general, that fancy reading through 25k of original angst-driven Festive romance dealing with Spoilers/Triggers )

There's only so much you can learn from the Internet about Thanksgiving. I just know I'm fucking it up. But yes, I know I didn't mention the Macy's parade. Maybe I should put that in...?

Anyway.

This damn thing has been consuming me. I just want it to be over now.

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've finally decided what to write for the spnJ2bigbang!

Now I just have to write the thing in 28 days

Jebus xx
no title
alexisjane: (a- huh?)
I really need to get started on my BB but unlike previous years, I haven't had anything specific in mind that I want to write. I have a few ideas, all things that need writing, but which to write!!

So as usual when I'm in a jam, I'm gonna let my better half make the decision...my better half being all y'all : )

So...

[Poll #2039234]

These all need to be done at some point, so click away. I'm reluctant to include "Sequel to Space Alpacas" as I don't have an idea for that but yeah, I guess that's on the table too : ) xx
alexisjane: (a -Ohhh!)


Something Beginning With 'V'

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!!

alexisjane: (happy dance)
Excited about my WIP!! Getting some reference images together to make a planning sheet as I think there's maybe another book after this one, and I'm going to attempt to plan ahead for a change.

But anyway...

Jacob, this is everyone. Everyone, this is Jacob... )

My lovely Caleb... )



Old West Shifter fic FTW!! \0/

Yup. Way too excited. There's a snippet here if you haven't already read it : )

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner


Day 4

In your own space, create a fanwork.


Oh man...I'm not really in the brain space to make anything but I did find this...bonafide future spn fangirl right there : )




Day 5

Leave feedback for a fanwork.


Everytime I read something : ) xx

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner



Day 01

In your own space, talk about why you are doing the Fandom Snowflake Challenge? What drew you to it as a participant? What do you hope to accomplish by doing these challenges?


Um...I don't really know. I think I like the Snowflake Challenge as it's a good way to start off the new year and connect to fandom after being pulled every which way during the festive season. The questions usually make you consider aspects of fandom, and fic, plus I'm a sucker for lists or anything resembling a list : )

I don't know if I'll make it to Day 15 this year but I'm gonna try to start the year as I mean to go on...and actually finish stuff for a change! x

Darlings!

Last call for addresses.

Yes, I'm this disorganized... )


Also, if anyone else wants a little something and a non-festive card, pm me your address, favourite colour and if you don't accept leather before tomorrow night (GMT)

Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend : ) xxx
alexisjane: (a - alec flicking popcorn)
You couldn't plan it better...



In other news, hellatus is over. Apparently. But as I haven't watched anything since...Bad Boys?...I shall be ducking out to -

- I was going to say "avoid spoilers" like I haven't been spoiled already : )

Which is why I stopped watching in the first place. Twitter...bless it's heart.

So, yeah, I'll be around, just maybe not around.

Love your faces!! Have fun! xx
alexisjane: (i stumble forward)
So, I'm gearing up to edit I Stumble Forward into something more...manuscript-ish...just coz I always promised myself I would, and I'm at the point where I need to change the names to protect the innocent.

So, I've had some thoughts...not all of them good, but I figured I'd ask as I'm shit at this, and you guys are fricken awesome.

Anyway...I don't think this is spoilery if you think you might wanna read it...although you've had a year, goddammit! It's not War and Peace, people! Although it has been described as "harrowing" in places so it might be best if you haven't...*coughs*

I digress...


I'm so bad at this )

Anyway...any feedback or suggestions would be gratefully received : ) Ridicule is cool too : P xx

p.s. I was joking about the whole reading it thing...it's most definitely not everyone's cup of tea, so I'm not actually...y'know : ) xx

Quickie

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: (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.

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 )

Light out

alexisjane: (sleepy dean)
Slept from 8pm til midnight.
Tried to go back to sleep for 3 hours.
Got up.
Tackled inbox.

It's now 5.45am and now I'm sleepy ffs! I've only managed to answer about 50 messages and comments, and commented on a tiny fraction of the love meme. I'm so slow! Also starving. Breaking out the bacon and eggs before the dog gets up : )

Hope y'all had a good weekend : ) Happy Monday!! ♥ xx
