About Me

I am first and foremost, a story teller. My passions are M/M fiction and fantasy, and I combine these two things in my work. Among other things, in my books you will find men in love (with each other), vampires, demons, angels and shapeshifters.

New cover: Fire of the Four Seasons

Just received the cover for Fire of the Four Seasons, and I love it. It is a Menage Amour m/m/m/m/m, the twisted fairytale I was talking about a few months back. Without further ado, here is the prettiness.

Tentative blurb:


 A slave of his sister, Eva’s whims, Alexei is shocked when, in the process of getting her a gift, he meets four men who sweep him of his feet. Zimah, Visnah, Lyetah and Ohsyn are unlike anyone Alexei has ever met. They control the power of the seasons, and agree to help Alexei. Their affection and generosity soon morphs into passion and love, and Alexei allows himself to surrender to desires he had kept hidden for many years.

But when Eva’s unreasonable requests continue, Alexei refuses to take advantage of his men’s magic once again. His decision sets him, his sister and his lovers on a course of events that leads secrets of the past to be revealed. The hidden fire inside Alexei is about to burst out, and the love of the fourseasons may not be able to extinguish it.

Procrastination... How do we get rid of it?

Every person who works from home knows their greatest enemy is procrastination. It's difficult to keep disciplined and do your job when there are so many distractions. Whether it is the latest LOLcat, a FB app, obsesively looking for reviews or checking email (in the case of authors), everything seems engineered to stop us from working. 

For my part, I've lost count of the number of FB apps I've used since getting an account. I'm a curious person so when my eye falls on something, I can't help but click. I've stopped using most, with the exception of a select few, but somehow, I still manage to waste time (see this blog post).

So how do you keep yourself from procrastinating? Thoughts?

Has it been a year already?

I had a dream last night. It was about my puppy, Dolly, and she was a puppy angel. It's been almost a year since she died, and sometimes, I still look for her in the house, waiting for her to scratch at the door to be let in. Most of the time, I try not to think about it, but I still miss her, so very much.

I hope you're happy in doggie heaven, little fox, maybe going on road trips with other puppies like you used to go with us. I love you and I'll always remember you.

On Bad Reviews and Second Languages


Hello to everyone and Happy April's Fools Day! I'm sure many of you out there are aware of the hype surrounding a bad review of a certain author. The author in question proceeded to insult the reviewer and the readers who offered their opinions. But I don't want to talk about that. It's already been discussed more than necessary. Perhaps it is self-centered of me, but what I mean to say is the following: When you want to criticize someone's writing, don't say "S/he writes like English is not her/his second language." It is very insulting to those of us who are non-native speakers/writers. IMHO, I don't make glaring mistakes, and false modesty aside, I'm good at English - and this is true for many other non-English authors out there. So without meaning to offend anyone, please consider this when you leave bad reviews.
