Day Two of standing up all day. I'm tired and cranky and so full of Chinese food I might die.

Doing a meme because everything hurts and I'm too tired to take a shower just yet. Stolen from everyone : )


1. Are you named after someone?

After a character in a book my mum was reading when she was pregnant...though she can't remember what book... *sighs*


Many questions )

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.

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*
alexisjane: (humbert)

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

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*

Question

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
alexisjane: (TW - action)
*keeping fingers crossed that no more of my heroes shake off their mortal coil this week*

Two things!

1. Anyone got a couple of minutes to run their eyes over a 1k blog post today? I'm doing a guest post for someone and I just need a second pair of eyes to spot any major errors and to make sure I don't sound like a dick.

2. I haven't signed up for the spnj2bigbang yet. I'm really not sure if I should, as I have so much else to do, but then I was thinking I could use it to get down the sequel to I Stumble Forward...but I'm not sure whether people would be that bothered about reading that...opinions welcome, nay, encouraged.

ION...
Last week was a bust. I got nothing done and I'm trying not to be pissed at myself.
Lily's eye is no better. We're both getting a bit bored with eye ointment.
I've managed to not contract any illnesses for ten days...so I'll probably get something this week : )
My kids came for dinner and it was lovely.
I'm almost 99% sure that the noisy neighbors have moved out!!
Papayas are my new favourite thing.

That's it. That's everything xxx

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 : ) )

I wasn't able to participate much this year but I did get a couple of things done.

My contributions )

Gigantic thank you to all the Bunker of Doom team members who always make this such fun, and for picking up my slack when I had to bail on all y'all. You truly rock!!

I finished my tax return this morning! So, now I'm anticipating the arrival of the Math Police any second to throw me in the slammer for not being able to add up right, and for claiming £3.70 for a bus ticket even though it's so faded it's only just legible, and what the hell do I think I'm doing, including double sided tape that I could be using for anything...

I may be slightly paranoid.

So, I mermaided myself while I wait for them to arrive.



Might be fuzzy coz I had to screenshot it coz it wouldn't save. I'd love to say it's uncannily accurate... : ) xx
alexisjane: (j2 - boyfriends)


The BB has gone off to be beta'd.

I have a tonne of emails to reply to from people who have helped me with the technical stuff...thank you guys so much, I will be getting back to you, I haven't forgotten, I've just been rushing to get this done.

First though, I'm going off to buy wine, wine, and more wine.

And bizarrely, I feel like doing some writing this afternoon : )
alexisjane: (i stumble forward)
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
alexisjane: (j2 - kissing)
Wasn't going to but having a weird day...so why not : ) ♥ you all so much. And thank you to [livejournal.com profile] yohkobennington and [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte for starting this whole thing xxxx

♥ LOVE MEME ♥

Travis' message to Jared says it all ♥ xx

Only one hour to go!!

I can't believe it's here already! That whole year just whipped by! I'm going to attempt to make myself some pancakes and a giant pot of tea and try not to chew through my arm waiting for the post to go up!!


Eeeeeeeeeee!!!!

Is it just me? Anyone else excited? xx

Just wanted to quickly rec this article. I saw something about it on Upworthy the other day but didn't have a chance to read it.

If there's not a fic/book/movie in this then I give up...

Basically, this little girl feeds the crows in her garden for so long...they start bringing her gifts in return. The best part is how she treasures these things, hoarding bits of broken jewellery and pieces of colored glass like they are the most precious things in the world. Christ, it's so lovely!

Anyway, I thought y'all might like it : ) esp. [livejournal.com profile] casey28 Crows are the best! ♥
