Me answering emails.

I have news and stuff but right now there's a dog on me so it's hard to type : ) so...x

alexisjane: (a- oh abbadon)
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.

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.

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*

Okay, first off, this post has nothing to do with Penelope Pitstop. I just thought I'd make a post asking for help with something, and then her funny voice was in my head...hence the title.

Second. Googling images of Penelope Pitstop to use in this post for a little decoration was a BIG MISTAKE. Needless to say, my childhood is ruined : (

Thirdly...I just wanted to see if anyone fancied looking over my blurb for Book Four (Jebus) of the Alphas' Homestead thing. Book Two will be out soon and I wanted to put the blurb for B4 in the back, but it sounds funky to me. Not super attached to the title or the tagline...or any of it, frankly.

Bad Blurb Beneath... )


Also, I've tweaked the cover for Book Two...it now has 150% more nipple...which I hate but hopefully you will like.

Tweaked. Nipple. See what I did there. (That wasn't even on purpose : )

Okey Dokey! Definitely time for a cup of tea if I'm accidentally punning. Love your faces ♥

Happy Monday, y'all!

I'm feeling chipper...don't worry, it won't last : )

I has two questions today because, of course, you are my own personal think tank ♥

1 - I've had a proto-idea for a story. I want it to be m/m romance (obs) but one of the characters is...well...dead. I quite like the idea of a guy living in a house that has a ghost, but the ghost is crap at actually haunting, so they basically live together like room mates. Except they fall in love... And that's the problem. How do I get them their HEA/corporeal sexytimes?
The only time I've ever seen something like this that work was in The Jelly to his Doughnut by blacktofade (which I highly recommend even if Sterek's not your thing) But their elegant solution is theirs so...
Anyway, I've been mulling it over and I'm not getting anywhere. And you guys are faultless at shaking my brain loose, so I thought I'd ask : )

2 - Question about formats.

[Poll #2045477]

Anyhoo, that's it. The sun is shining on the south coast today. this probably accounts for the chipperness so early on a Monday morning : ) I hope you are all fine and dandy! Kisses xx
alexisjane: (j2 - boyfriends)
Anyone up for a quickie read through of my BB?

Not to beta, just for sense. I'm unsure about the ending and I could do with some feedback before I send it out to my betas.

21.5k - NC-17 - J2au - age difference, violence, awkward sex, schmoop.

Kisses in advance xxxx


And more kisses...and maybe licks : ) xx
alexisjane: (a - alec flicking popcorn)
20624 words.

Submitted.

Betas required for J2 gore, domestic violence, and awkward fumbling sex.

In the fic...not like a date or anything.

Love your faces : ) xxx


Also, my happy dance user pic isn't working. Shame on you LJ. And shame on your cow.

*waves*

Still busy as a bee...although I slept for 12 hours yesterday on and off but I think I needed it after the stressful week. I should know by the end of next week whether or not I have to move, so really just holding out until then.

Anyhoo!

Was just wondering if anyone fancies reading 8k of J2 angst? It's my BB, but I've totally stalled and thought some feedback might get me going again.

Age difference and domestic violence (not between the J's) and awkward sexytimes.

I have a vague idea where it's going but I've run out of steam and I only have thirteen days left to finish it : /

It's rough as all hell, and switches tense every paragraph but hopefully you'll get the gist : )
Thanks, Chickens ♥

Here's a picture of how my goofy dog wakes me up to say thanks in advance : ) xxx

alexisjane: (a- Dean looking down)
no title

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

...I don't get my new glasses 'til Thursday but I've built it up in my head that the new prescription lenses are going to be life changing. Bye-bye headaches, and weird vision. Bye-bye only being able to draw for ten minutes at a time, and not being able to see out of my right eye by the end of the day. Goodbye to all that, and hello to typing for hours, drawing all day, and not feeling like my head is going to explode.

I may have built it up a bit too much, but only two more sleeps!

In other news...I went to a writers meet-up thing in London on Saturday. It was fun and interesting and a little overwhelming but I talked to people, and didn't flail or fangirl too badly. Anyway, one of the things we talked about was newsletters. So, yesterday I made one...well, I set the means by which to send them out. I was thinking that I could send one once a month, just recapping some of my blog posts, doing giveaways when I have something to giveaway, or adding excerpts or free chapters of stuff. IDK I figured it was worth a try, see if people like it or not. LJ won't let me put the form on here but you can sign up for it at the bottom of the page here.

I'm kinda excited about it as I'm using Mailerlite to make the newsletters, which is such fun to use! I spent all day yesterday geeking out over it when I should have been doing other things...like writing. I can thoroughly recommend it. Especially for procrastinating : )

Miss your faces! xxx
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: (Little Werewof House)
Call out for Beta Readers



I'm going to start editing my original fic, Little Werewolf House, this week, so if you would like a sneak peek at some Old West Werewolf action, then it would be great to have a few people to give it a look over.

HOWEVER...
Don't sign up until you've read the post beneath the cut. I'm not looking for proof reading at this point. I need feedback so smooth out the kinks...or lack there of. So, if you think you can put up with my bossiness, pm me and I'll give you run down of the warnings, etc, so you can make a decision. There are...a few : /
Trying something new! )

I'm going to try to edit a chapter everyday, RL permitting, and send them out around that frequently.

Anyway...how exciting!!
alexisjane: (j2 - were)
Title - No Lie
Pairing - Jared/Jensen
Rating - NC-17
Disclaimer - These are my words. Characters that bear the names of actors in this story have no relation to the real-life people of the same name. They simply have the misfortune to be cast in my sordid little tale. No profit is made from this.
Word count - 2591
Warnings - It's been so long I don't quite know how to warn for this. Detective!Jared, Prostitute!Jensen, consensual sex...idk, there's naked men in it. Mentions of the unsavoury, seedy, and sad side of life.

Unbeta'd, so hit me with those corrections if you feel so inclined. Hastily written for [livejournal.com profile] smpc

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*
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
Writers, Procrastinators, Big Bangers!

Writing Faster FTW by L. A. Witt is free on Amazon for short time, so you might want to snap it up.

I've only read the intro so far, but it looks like a guide to finding your own path to productivity. Plus, Lori is really fun writer and being that she knocks out 80k a month in words, I reckon she probably knows a thing or two.

Also...free. Maybe leave a nice review in exchange. I thought I'd just mention it x
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

Question

Jan. 28th, 2016 03:55 pm
alexisjane: (+1 - Sam&Cas)
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
