I am now on Ko-fi and would love for you to join me! I'll be posting exclusive blogs and a monthly serial! I'm so excited to be on this platform and I look forward to sharing this new story and so much more with you this year! Thank you again for all of your continued support. 💜
DůO is a M/M Dreampunk serial that takes place in 1983 in a parallel demon dimension and is a prequel to the ROAM series (though you will not have to have read ROAM to read this) and focuses heavily on two Hunters, Doyle & Oscar, who work for the Order of Azoth. After climbing the ranks to become the best-of-the-best of supernatural hit-men, the pair begins to question the true purpose of the Order, discovering its corruption and a dark secret that could destroy the multiverse.
As you may have seen in my newsletter and on social media, I have some new stories coming your way in the new year! Here's a list of what's ahead for 2021:
DůO - A Ko-fi Exclusive Serial
This M/M Dreampunk series will be brought to you as a Ko-fi serial beginning January 6th (sign up for my newsletter or check Twitter for the link)! Each month a new "episode" (chapter) will be uploaded for subscribers. I thought it would be a fun way to say thank you to everyone who donates and supports my work. Also, if you can't do a monthly subscription but would like to offer a one-time donation, you will gain access to exclusive blog posts for 30 days from the time of your donation. (But the series will be for subscribers only.)
M/M Gaslamp Fantasy Novel
Alfred “Alfie” Hughes is a spiritual medium who has more than enough people in his social circle. Unfortunately, they're all dead. That is until Detective Sebastian Davies arrives in Nótt Haven, a tourist town known for its active nightlife, and deems Alfie's abilities—perhaps, even his company—worthy of closer inspection.
A circus performer, known as The World Bender, mysteriously disappears and a slew of peculiar murders accumulate. Suspecting foul play as unusual as the crimes themselves, Sebastian enlists Alfie to guide him through the town's supernatural underbelly to find answers; and, in the process, Alfie might solve the biggest enigma of all: human connection.
My next release with NineStar Press and my first foray into M/M Contemporary Romance!
Mateo Harris, a retired Olympic Show Jumper, achieved just about everything he could want in life. Rising from a nobody to becoming a beloved gold-medalist, co-owning H&H Riding Academy with his cousin—and best friend—Emily Hall, and he’s one of the most powerful and respected men in his hometown of Sweetspire, VA. Nothing can shake the foundations of the life he’s built for himself. That is until he hears his nemesis and former crush, Christopher Wright II, has moved back to town.
Christopher, a runaway movie star, has returned to Sweetspire to inherit the family business: Wright Stables, the only rival riding academy Mateo has ever had to worry about. With Christopher’s charm, talent, and fame taking charge, Mateo is faced with real competition both in and out of the arena. He’ll have to be at the top of his game to prove he’s still the number one equestrian in town, but every encounter with Christopher becomes as challenging as any obstacle he’s faced on horseback.
I'm looking forward to sharing all of these new stories with you and I wish you all a very Happy New Year! 🥂
The release date for MIRRORMAZE: A Dreampunk Anthology is fast approaching! Thank you so much to all of you who have already pre-ordered a copy! ❤
Today I want to put a spotlight on my short story which is part of this first-ever Dreampunk anthology, Thatcher Maugden And The Dream Witch.
Thatcher Maugden is an Edwardian-era magician who finds himself swept into the Dream World by a Nightmare Demon who tasks him with the duty of piloting a dream-skimmer and ridding the Dream World of any would-be trouble makers, aka lucid dreamers. He's resigned himself to his new surreal career until the day that he stumbles upon a Dream Witch who changes everything.
So, for those who really like to dig into fictional worlds and who have read my other books, I'm thrilled to tell you there is a connection. The story of Thatcher Maugden not only takes place in the same universe as the ROAM series, but Thatcher also happens to be Ethan Roam's great-great-grandfather! This is not specifically stated in the short story, but it was my intent while writing. Just some fun background info. and world-building extras for you. :)
MIRRORMAZE releases on December 8th and contains short stories from 22 science-fiction and fantasy authors!
