New Mage in Love Episodes 27 & 28 Are Up Now!

I put up two new episodes of Mage in Love this week! Episode 27: “Sparks” and Episode 28: “Enough” are available to read now on Laterpress.

Episode 27 is available now on Kindle Vella, and episode 28 should be available soon.

In “Sparks” and “Enough,” the negotiation continues, sparks fly, and enough is enough…or is it? ;)

This is an enemies to lovers story, and it’s a tie-in story to the New Canton Republic series. I’ve been throwing out some hints about that connection in some of the latest episodes, but even if you miss them, it’ll all come together in the end. :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…

Vella always takes longer, so if you want to read both episodes immediately, you’ll need to get the chapter bundles through Laterpress.

If you go read the new episodes on Vella, and you want more, a thumbs up and a follow will let me know! :)

Just Published Episode 26 of Mage in Love!

Mage in Love has a new episode!

Jihu and Gaeru are having an adventure…

Episode 26: “Not that different” is up on Laterpress now. It should be available on Kindle Vella soon.

“Not that different” has Jihu and Gaeru doing a little negotiating. :D

I’m thinking of converting this to a single price at Laterpress for the rest of the story, so if you want me to do that, you should let me know in the comments. If I do, that’d be one price for all episodes, paid once upfront to unlock the whole thing, until the story is complete.

If you prefer the chapter bundle pricing, let me know that, too. This change would be for you, not me! :)

“Marked” has Jihu in a tough spot, and Gaeru is not a patient man. ;D

First TEN Episodes of Mage in Love are Free to Read on Kindle Vella

Since a recent change at Kindle Vella, the first TEN episodes of Mage in Love are now free to read on Kindle Vella. If you’ve been thinking of giving it a try, this is a good time. :)

The story is coming along nicely and it’s picking up a little steam ;), and I foresee regular updates now until it’s completed.

Of course, you’re still welcome to buy access from me and read on Laterpress instead, but this is a good opportunity to get a bigger sample and read more chapters if you haven’t made up your mind about reading it. :)

This chapter should have gone up a while ago, but oops, so here it is now. Another is going to be published today sometimes, and still another tomorrow. :D

I’ve had the first two of these ready for a while and just couldn’t seem to let go of them. That’s usually a sign that I need to think about something. Since this is the first time I’ve published a story while writing it, I decided to trust myself and hold on to the chapters until I was ready to let go. :D

Here’s a screenshot of what you’ll see if you buy from me and haven’t already unlocked chapters.

New Mage in Love Episode 20: “Loyalties”!

The story is branching out and picking up steam. :)

Buy from me to read online, or wait just a bit and read the episode on Kindle Vella.

Episode/Chapter 20: “Loyalties”

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…

Cast so far:

  • Jihu – Smuggler? He’s up to something, no doubt! Whatever it is, he seems to be in over his head.
  • Gaeru – Big title and big trouble. What’s he planning? And why is he dragging Jihu into it?
  • Baeo – Jihu’s friend? Definitely not his boyfriend. Definitely more trouble than he’s worth!
  • Daehu – Sex worker who wants to be anywhere but where he is… Is he hiding something?
  • Taeom – Association Militia? Watch your back, Jihu!

Just Released Episodes 18 & 19 of Mage in Love!

Jihu and Gaeru are having an adventure…and they have company!

Chapters, episodes, it’s all the same to me. :D I try to be clear that I’m using the terms interchangeably for this story but just in case, an episode is a chapter and a chapter is an episode. :)

And now Episode 18, “Into the flames” & Episode 19, “Is this a joke?” are available to read!

Buy from me to read online, or wait just a bit and read the episodes on Kindle Vella.

I have to say I really had fun with these chapters. :D

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

Cam and Rick Play Dirty (a.k.a. Bel and Reed’s Long Night) Is a New Wolves’ Heat Short Story!

Book cover image for Cam and Rick Play Dirty (a.k.a. Bel and Reed's Long Night) with trees under a bright sky

Available now direct from me! Coming soon to the usual retailers. :)

This story, I don’t even know where to start. Cam and Rick Play Dirty (a.k.a. Bel and Reed’s Long Night) was supposed to be “Claw” in the After the Heat collection. Then I realized “Prick” was a much better title, so I wrote a different story that ended up being “Claw”, and I’m glad I did, because I really like what I ended up with.

But then this one went longer than I had planned for it to be, by a LOT. It became a story that’s commensurate in length with Devon and Kem Under the Mistletoe (a.k.a. Ian and Craig’s First Fight). It also felt like a different kind of story than those that are in the After the Heat collection, so there was that.

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!

Whew.

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! :)
