For anyone who's interested...

I've written a short Valentine story over on RJ Scott's blog today. It's from the Alphas' Homestead series, set kinda after Book Two, I guess.

If you haven't read the books yet, it's only a little spoilery, and gives a taste of what the series is like. Also, you can win a free book!

RJ has had a whole bunch of guest posts this month so it's worth going just to check out some other authors stuff.

Anyway — Be My Valentine — clickety for adorable boys

Peeps, I've been seeing this around several BuJo groups I'm in and was trying to resist but then I thought...meh, why not. We could all use a little cheering up at the moment.
So...if you'd like me to send you something next month (it will probably just be a postcard, not a letter). email me your address, and I'll put you on the list. Only 28 places obvs. Feel free to prompt me with a question too when you send your email : ) #incowrimo

So, you know all those times I bugged you last year about maybe voting for me in the Love Bytes Review polls thingy...?

*bites fist*

Holy Moly! Home Is Where You Are made it through to the 2016 Book of the Year Poll on Love Bytes Reviews. Which is amazing!

It was properly gobsmacking to make it through the weekly and monthly rounds, so to see Caleb and Jacob's story up with all those other fantastic books at the end of the year is kinda crazy.

Obviously, if you would like to vote, that would be lovely. You can click Here, but mostly, I just wanted to say thank you.

Thank you to everyone who has bought, read and reviewed any of my books in 2016, thank you to everyone at Love Bytes who have been so supportive of my new venture, and thank you to everyone who voted for Home last year.

You guys are the best.

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.

alexisjane: (red - Jen and cillian)
Just wanted to drop this here quickly.

I'm going to this thing. It should be fun and interesting and lots of the writers that I know who are going are fangirls too.

Anyway, I think there are some places left : ) xx


Queer Company 2

Reading, writing and publishing are fulfilling occupations in themselves, but we also feel very lucky to be working in this particular genre – not least because of the wonderful sense of community. To celebrate our excellent friendships – and in the hope of making even more – Manifold Press is delighted to be hosting this UK-based event.

Queer Company 2 will be a small, friendly gathering designed to engage and inspire. This one-day event is planned for Saturday 5 November 2016 at The Jam Factory in Oxford.

Everyone is welcome! The only requirement is that you love this genre we share.

Please note that registrations will close on Saturday 22 October!

"Home Is Where You Are" is up for Book of the Month!!



You guys were so amazing at voting when I was up for Book of the Week, you all got me through to Book of the Month!

Which means I get to ask you to vote for me ALL OVER AGAIN!!

I don't hold out much hoping of topping this one as I'm up against, amongst others, Lisa Henry, who is one of my favorite writers (Discontented Winter on AO3) but it would be nice to give a shot.

So, if you have a minute and your finger feels like making a clicking motion of some kind, the page is here - Love Bytes

It's only open til Friday, and I think you can only vote once.

I know it seems silly but stuff like this really helps to get the book out there...which gives me the chance to write more books.


Thank you so much in advance!!! ♥

This was pretty much me all weekend. I successfully managed to avoid eye contact with Jordan Hawk for three days (Go Me!) although I did accidentally talk to Jay Northcote...she was really nice about it though : )

Gonna spend the day with me mam and try to decompress a little so I can start writing tomorrow in earnest. Knackered but inspired is a weird combination.

Your faces...I miss them ♥

alexisjane: (TW - Sterek)



Chaps. I was up all night doing this...Chuck knows why...but now there are free PDF and mobi downloads of Something Beginning with "V" on my website. Coz formatting e-books is just my favourite thing in the world right now.   *coughs*procrastinating*coughs*

I'd tried to get the epub to work but the plugin was having none of it. I'll keep trying to fix that when I have a minute but in the meantime, if you want one, just email me and I'll send it over.

Anyway. Mad-panic month is nearly over! Just got to prep for UK Meet at the weekend...then actually get there and do the thing...then I'm free and clear 'til the New Year and beyond!! Cannot wait to get back to writing!

Hope you all are doing okay. Seriously miss your faces ♥

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*

Here we go!
RH Coverjul26.jpg

Starting to upload Book Two today. Fingers crossed, I don't fuck it up : )

As before I'm going to be giving out 30 copies in exchange for honest reviews.
And as I like you guys best of everyone, you get first dibs...okay, the official ARC reviewers get first first dibs but still sorta first : )
Details are below.
Email me – contact[at]alexjane[dot]info – and tell me if you want epub, mobi, or PDF
I cannot send you a file unless I know what file type you want so don't forget that!


Returning Home


Three years after Jacob Carpenter landed on Caleb Fletcher’s doorstep, the Alpha mates return to the city they grew up in to be married.

Aside from the sheer exhaustion of traveling across the country with three children in tow, both men step foot back in New York filled with apprehension about what kind of reception they will receive from their families after abandoning their respective packs.

At first it seems they are welcomed home with open arms and much excitement about their wedding but it soon becomes clear that not everyone is so happy to see the prodigal sons return.

Indeed, Caleb finds himself wondering if Jacob will go through with the ceremony at all, or whether it would be better to pack up his mate and their children, and head back to Nebraska before the situation does irreparable damage to them both.




Sometimes you have to leave a place to realize it’s exactly where you ought to be.

…..



Novella – 36k+
Warnings – angst, family discord, angst...bit more angst. Maybe even a bit more than that. Sexytimes. HEA.


I may be a little bit nervous...just a little bit...

*weeps*

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 ♥ ♥ ♥

alexisjane: (a- horrified)


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 ♥
alexisjane: (Little Werewof House)
If you would like a copy of the book what I wrote* in exchange for an honest review, let me know. I have 20 ePub, mobi, or PDF to offer.

I made a Goodreads page and it should be up on Amazon by the end of the week.

Please don't feel you have to be nice. Anything over three stars will make my day : )

Blurb )


*Yes, that's deliberate. I can't help myself. Too much Morecambe and Wise in my youth.
alexisjane: (Little Werewof House)
*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

So, I made this for my Alpha's Homestead logo.

Thoughts are appreciated.

Also, rewatching Person of Interest and spotted a familiar face. Took me ages, but ended up yelling "Bones! Dammit!" into an empty room about an hour later. It was the Southern assistant that dated Cam's daughter : )
alexisjane: (Little Werewof House)
So, the novel is out being looked at by folk who know a thing or two more about post-civil war stuff than I've picked up from Wikipedia and a couple of episodes of Little House on the Prairie. And I managed to sell something so I can pay for a professional proof-reader \0/ so all being well, this puppy should be out in a couple of weeks : )

Here is my blurb.


If you have any feedback – esp. con-crit – I'd love to hear it. I know that 'finished is better than perfect' but I'm trying to get it mostly right.

Then I can start on Book Two! ♥
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.
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
