So I have a few things in the works or updates to make on the writing front and it's all about the paranormal/horror.
First off: Queer Fear will be coming out on May 14th. It is an anthology of LGBTQ erotic horror short stories. Mine The Possession of Lawrence Eugene Davis.
Following the death
of his father, Lawrence has returned to his family's ranch, but is
quickly set upon by a demonic presence. Hope for release comes with the
conveniently-appearing Elijah, but the deal he offers may be just as
unholy as the demon itself.
The combination of body horror and erotica was challenging but I think very worth while and I look forward to trying to write the combination again.
lives an easy-going, quiet life. She works part time at her friend's
bookstore, is active in the local LGBTQ scene, manages to avoid the occasional crazy ex, and also does some temp work for the big name spell-craft firm Simon and Davidson.
hired to work with an up and coming exorcist at Simon and Davidson,
M.C. Andersen. At first An-An doesn't know what to make of her ambitious and prickly new
boss. M.C. is deeply involved in the world of high stakes spell-craft,
determined to carve out a place for herself among the extremely
hierarchical and old fashioned world of professional exorcists. Although
she can be demanding and abrasive at times M.C. treats An-An with
respect, despite An-An position as an inscriber without any aptitude for
spell casting. As they work together on a high stakes case of demonic
possession, An-An finds herself becoming more and more attracted to M.C.
Just as their relationship looks like it might be deepening into
something more though, the case suddenly takes a turn for the worse.
Much, much worse.
Selume Proferre has a darker, grittier edge than I usually write and M.C. is the first genderqueer character I ever wrote. The novella will be coming out from Less Than Three Press in November I believe. (the Italian mastiff on the cover's name is Faust. He is a major part of the story I just want to give him pets and cuddles every time I look at this.)
Finally: I am pleased to say that The Memory of Blood and Lotuses, my long novella/short novel length ancient Egyptian vampire story was accepted by Less Than Three Press and will be coming out, along with the rest of their vampire collection, just in time for Halloween this coming October.
