I have to say I really had fun with these chapters. :D
In Mage in Love, Jihu makes a bargain with crafty (but hot) Gaeru to escape death. One bad decision leads to another and, soon, Jihu has only himself to blame for the trouble that follows…
If you buy the chapter bundles from me, you’re essentially getting early access to the story episodes, since Kindle Vella requires the episodes to go through a review process and can take up to 72 hours to go live. Doesn’t usually take quite that long, but it’s definitely not instantaneous. :D
But making it a volume of the Wolves’ Heat Stories meant I needed a new title, because “Prick” is the title that most suits the fourth story in the After the Heat collection! Which also means I needed a new story to go with that title!
All that to say, I settled on a title for this one, and I’ve added a cover, and it’s going up this week as an individually published short story in the Wolves’ Heat universe.
“Prick” will also be coming soon to the After the Heat: Wolves’ Heat Stories collection. It’s not the story it was, but it’s the story it was meant to be! :)
I need a few more weeks for Taken with Tony. Some good news is that the temperature has been lower for the last few days and the inside of the house isn’t sweltering anymore. :)
I just put out the second R’H’ani Chronicles collection, which took more time than I expected, too. These stories are pure romance, but the setting is such that there is definitely a LOT of sex happening.
Most of the distributors want me to put them in erotica, but in my mind, that doesn’t fit at all! I guess I’m deluding myself. I feel like the stories are one-hundred percent focused on the romance, but if I don’t label them erotica, the distributors get mad at me! ;D
Have you read the R’H’ani stories? What do you think? Pure romance, or erotica is a fine label for them and just accept it?
I’m not making a promise, but I expect I’ll be putting up a couple of episodes for Mage in Love tomorrow. :-)
I feel like this one has been a bit of a slow build. I really expected the story to go differently than it has, so if you’re surprised by how it’s gone so far, you can join me in that. :D
I also had plans for Taken with Tony last month that didn’t pan out. So I’m hoping/expecting to wrap things up with it this month instead.
The house is hot (the AC isn’t working well) and my writing is suffering in the humid air. Who wants to sit at the computer when it’s 83 degrees inside and at 65% humidity? NOT ME. This summer cannot end fast enough for me. I live in the mountains for god’s sake. You’d think it would be cooler. But it’s the damn humidity that’s killing me. Not the temperature. :o
Guess I’ll end this little update here. I believe I’ll have several more releases this year, if the weather, my damn house (falling down around me LOL), and my health holds out through the end of the year. Wish me luck! :D
This year, I’m trying to update a bit more often so everyone knows where I am on the stories. :) I am not great with estimating the time it will take to finish things, but I’m feeling pretty good about my progress on Taken with Tony at the moment. This is the follow-up to Gay for Alex, and it is Tony’s story (no surprise there). :D
Updated the estimated release date to August July 2023. I’m pretty confident now that I will be releasing it soon. :)
