With What I Most Enjoy: Writing the Weird Stuff

maderr:

Every time people are forced to listen to me babble, one of the things that comes up is that I have hard time saying what’s the weirdest/strangest thing I’ve written. My barometer for this stuff is pretty broken. It’s a lot stranger for me to write something like The Missing Butterfly than it is to write something like Wriggle & Sparkle.  I’m a fantasy nerd through and through. I often forget that things like incest need a warning because that will give a lot of people pause. When I accepted a commission to write a twincest/threesome story, the requester was very nervous about asking for it (which made me feel awful for her, b/c it gave the impression she’s been treated like shit for liking it and you don’t have to like what I like, but don’t be a jerk about it).

But of all the ‘weird’ stuff I write, the anthro is my favorite. One, it’s a challenge. The way they look, the way they move, how it changes their thoughts, beliefs, etc. Like Lukos Heat, where Najlah’s tongue remains forked when he shifts, meaning he can’t speak human languages and most humans find him incomprehensible. When a character permanently has things like claws, venom, fur, feathers, etc. it definitely keeps an author on their toes :3

It’s also just plain fun. [cont]

Guuuuuuys I just signed a contract for A Boy Called Cin w/LT3.

It’s a m/m romance and almost everyone is trans and it’s May/December (I mean Tom isn’t THAT old, he’s 40, but Cin is 20 soooo) and Cin is a CUTE ART STUDENT and Tom is a tech industry rockstar billionaire (imagine a combination of Steve Jobs and Tony Stark but generally shyer and easily flustered by cute art students).

This is a hella id-y book and LT3 are enablers but I imagine I’m not the only person for whom this kind of thing is enjoyable. I hope not, anyway.

We like enabling hella fucking awesome things. And I got to read it and the rest of ya’ll have to wait, ahahahahahaha

protectsasuke2k14:

honestly i dont care if you ship pairings with unhealthy dynamics so long as you don’t try to sugarcoat it or gloss over the bad parts and actually. yknow. own up to the fact that it’s unhealthy as hell, oh my god

LT3 LOVELIGHT: ROCKING HARD: VOLUME 1

LT3 is putting Rocking Hard: Volume 1 under the lovelight! Pick up this rockstar romance anthology (usually $5.99!) for $0.99 until end of day October 23!

Less Than Three Press presents the first of three volumes of amazing stories along the theme of rock ‘n roll. Authors familiar and new combine for a collection of stories all about music and love.

Centrifical | Sol Crafter
Marty Sheer, one of the stars of a B-rated sci-fi show “Centrifical,” receives a phone call letting him know that his old friend Jim Sheppard, who left years ago and has since become an acclaimed rock star, has bought a new home close by. Renewing their friendships is easy—becoming something more is a challenge that makes fame look easy. 

Fringe Benefits | Diana Sheridan
Depressed after the death of his lover, and having lost his job at the same time, Dale distracts himself by going to see one of his favorite rockers. But a simple concert and trip backstage lands him an unexpected job as her new assistant, and brings him into the path of her intriguing, appealing make-up artist and hair dresser, Luis. But if there’s one thing that Dale has learned, it’s that life is never easy and love doesn’t always last. 

Courage Wolf Never Sings the Gorram Blues | Talya Andor
Bailey Kravitz, lead singer of Courage Wolf, is a high-strung, perfectionist diva of a front man. Gunner Lansing, bassist of Courage Wolf, is a laid-back, hang loose ladies’ man who is only serious about guitars and sex. They say opposites attract, but Bailey’s terminal crush on oblivious Gunner is tearing the band apart. Meanwhile, his longtime friend, quiet but intense guitarist Tor Macleod, helps him pick up the pieces yet again. Between annihilating everything they’ve built and reeling from total rejection, there may be a third option Bailey has been overlooking all this time. Problem is, Bailey’s always been more than a little difficult when he’s out to get his way, and that may ruin his prospects after all.

Put You In a Song | Lacie J. Archer
Ten months ago, on a whirlwind New Year’s Eve, Garrett and Rich enjoyed a wild night together. Back in town for the final performance of his band’s tour, Rich can’t wait to see Garrett again, unable to forget him. But a wild night and a lifetime are two different things, and the first real challenge they face may be more than their fragile new relationship can take.

A Haunted Melody | Angel Propps
A decades old tragedy, an old guitar, and a bright new star…

A struggling musician on the verge of losing her band, Kara spies a guitar in a pawn shop that she can’t resist. One year later she’s on the verge of fame, and meets a woman who not only can help her get there, but introduces Kara to an intriguing, beautiful woman… But bad history is coming back to haunt, and Kara stands to lose not just fame and love, but her life.

Get it here!
