1st-Mar-2018 12:45 pm - THE KING OF NIGHTMARE - Chapter 8
cig mouth tie



A brand new chapter of my fantasy horror novel, THE KING OF NIGHTMARE, just went out to my Patrons on Patreon.

SNIPPET:
As the Feed consumed more of the 'mares, the shell and the arch began to glow orange-red-gold. The shell began to pulsate with light, as though it grew a temporary heart, and soon the entire structure and the snakes began to thrum in time. As the transformation took the 'mares and turned their bodies into energy, the energy inflamed the Feed's arch, sped through the arch's snake-like tendons attached and buried in Nightmare's body, and the energy began to enter Nightmare. All Nightmare could do was moan in pure bliss. There was no fight, here, only hunger and satiation. Nightmare stared at the beautiful red-gold arch until it nearly blinded him and finally, he had to shut his eyes. He dangled in the squirming snake web, and he ate and ate and ate the fuel the Feed took, changed, and fed to the only creature the Feed recognized in all this land as worthy enough to give such favor.

Book review - JOHN DIES AT THE END by DAVID WONG now live on the YouTube. :D

19th-Jan-2018 11:11 am - The Demented Path: What Lies Ahead
cig mouth tie

(Cross-posted from PATREON.)
Hello friends!
So I know I’ve been a tad quiet here in the month of January – and I do apologize about that – but I Solemnly Swear I’ve Been Up to No Good, and I wanted to share with you the devious plottings afoot.
(Okay. So most of them aren’t so devious, exactly. At all. Though some of them DO involve leather! And we can PRETEND this is more covert and ninja-like than it is, right? Right.)
THING THE FIRST: The Writerly Happenings
Launching Demented Ink and my Patreon really allowed me to examine what I do with writing and what stories I want to tell: there are the stories for me, the stories for everyone, and, potentially, there are soon to be the stories written try to help others. At any given moment, there's between two and four works in progress, over here.
I wouldn’t change a thing about any of this – and many thanks to the little gods of wordsmithing and many, MANY thanks to my Patrons for making more of this possible – but this does mean there is an epic, mastery-level amount of compartmentalizing and organization going on over here.
In addition to a shift in how I look at what I do and why I do it, I also need to get real with y’all for a moment: the last five years have been intense. I’ve lost people. I’ve gained people. I’ve re-launched a career, made some heavy-hitting life decisions, faced down a lifetime of health problems, and am currently engaged in some serious Change, with the capital C.
I've been working my way back to center, and the closing of doors helped open others, as it is wont to do, which helped me figure out so much about myself and led me to some truly incredible people.
I say all that because for the first time in a long time, I’ve been re-examining a certain old story of mine in the fandom land that I left unfinished – which I swore I’d never do; one must finish what one starts in story world – and pondering other story lines. While I can make no promises – for reasons that I’ll clarify in just a second – I did want you to know that the band aid has fallen off and the wound has healed and the flesh is nice and shiny and new. There’s a scar, and I’m proud of it, after a fashion.
With all that in mind, here are the list of current (as in, active) writing projects:

1. Evantide: The story of West Evantide, his family, and the magic that binds them. West’s story has evolved and is now outlined. I’ve even started it. This is going to be a long road – think King of Nightmare long – and this one is soul work. West is a religious experience – he has a Down By the River to Pray kind of emotionally moving meaning – and I will do him right and true. He wouldn’t let me do it any other way, really. At this time, I’m unsure where his story will wind up – Patreon, onward to agents/publishers, self-pub – but I’ll likely be posting snippets and such just for Patrons. It’s part of my thanks for you supporting me in all the crazy undertakings I take on. :D
Also? West is damned cool. I think you’d like him, if you’ve not met him, yet.

2. Merek & Carter: These two are rainbow-leather-and-lace shiny. ‘nuff said. :D Their story has been started as well.
3. Lost ‘em Found ‘em: This is the currently nebulous but ever clarifying joint project I’m launching with a dear friend of mine. I’m not yet sure what it will include, but writing will definitely be involved. I’ll absolutely update everybody when more of the picture has come into the light.
4. The Smattering of Other Tales: I’ve also got several stories outlined, and two or three of them are started. But I’m trying to pick a focal point or two and go with it.
And of course The King of Nightmare will continue updating, here. I also have another book – romantic comedy – that will be making an appearance for Patrons mid-year.
Many, many words are happening. Writing is a silent, solitary process, but I’m going to do my best to provide updates, snippets, etc. for my Patrons. <3
THING THE SECOND: The Audio/Visual
The YouTube channel has taken a good chunk of my focus, as it’s a new venue for me and a new way of expressing myself. And I like it. The challenge to figure out editing software and HOW to do everything was srs biznass – like, a few mental breakdowns kind of serious – but most of the learning curve is in the rear view mirror and I’m into the phase where I’m learning new things without having to look up vocabulary every three seconds.
I currently have plans to upload a video of some make, model, or description every week remaining of 2018. Lofty goals, perhaps – and I might not make it – but I like that mode of expression, and I like that I can offer it as rewards for Patrons. So totes worth it, yo.
THING THE THIRD: A Day in the Life
I want to take a moment to talk about my to-do list. Now, I’m a work-a-holic and an overachiever/over-commiter from waaay back, but even I have to say shit’s pretty insane right now.
1. Adoption. My husband and I are neck-deep in the adoption process for a kidlet. Or two. It’s an all-encompassing process that I outlined a little bit over on the YouTube channel. It involves meetings, education hours, interviews, and a stack of paperwork taller than I am. All for the good, but I am
totally preoccupied with hippo onesies and trying not to panic.
2. House Build/Renovate/Rearrange: In light OF the adoption, we’re having to update our house a bit, rearrange it to accommodate a nursery, and move stuff to my mother’s home. Which is undergoing renovations which I’m spearheading along with her. Because ultimately the three of us (plus kidlet(s)) will be building a NEW home on a piece of property on top of a mountain which my husband and I acquired. The new house is requiring home plan creation, builder location and interview process, and, you know, money.
3. Day Job: I have one. It takes about 40-50 hours of my time during the week.
4. Self-Care: I’m a complicated little human who needs lots of maintenance. I have a rotating schedule of massage, chiropractic care, Western medicine visits, Eastern medicine doc visits, blood work, check-ups, exercise, meditation, spiritual practice, and food preparation, and I have a daily supplement/pill regimen that makes my head spin. All of this requires monitoring as it’s easy to overdo one thing or another. And most of this is not optional. If I miss some portion, I feel it. But don’t worry – I’m better now than I literally ever have been.
…and all that is on top of the writing, filming, editing, publishing, publicity, administration, graphics creation, social media, and my social life. And somewhere in all that, I need to sleep. A little. And keep up with my YouTube beauty gurus, ‘cause reasons.
If you made it through all that, thank you. If not, suffice to say Things Are Busy, but I am doing my level-best to make writing, Patreon, and creating top priorities. Please don’t ever think that I’m unappreciative if it takes a while to hear from me. I likely faceplanted somewhere soft to catch a power nap. :D
I hope this has been helpful or informative! The path ahead is alight with possibilities and detours of unexpected awesomeness. Exciting things are incoming, and my Patrons will be on the front line of all the news and goodies. Thank you for reading and for being you. <3
For the love of story and with all the light and love in the world,

I'm thrilled to announce that the second release of HEARTS UNDER FIRE - New Amsterdam Story #1 - is now available for pre-order over on Less Than Three Press's Book Market! Go check it out. :D

Ten years ago, Clark thought he would spend his life as a military man. But his world turned into a nightmare when a suicide bomber destroyed his career. It's been a long road to recovery, but Clark has finally found peace. His bar, Glow, is the place to be in New Amsterdam; the son of the mayor employs Clark as a confidential information man; and the BDSM club he part-owns is a profitable release. Clark's life is a good one, so long as no one gets too close.

Then Daniel walks into Glow, and what Clark expects to be just another handsome face proves instead to be the kind of challenge he's been avoiding—but he just can't seem to walk away.

cig mouth tie

Breaker: Exile, Volume 1
the first novel in Kelly Wyre's and my Exile series, makes its debut on January 11, 2017!

... And to celebrate, we're holding a giveaway!
We're both super excited about this new release and thrilled to be able to share it with you. Throughout this tour, we're going to be introducing many of the characters within, and associated with, Exile's bizarre shores, as well as introducing Exile itself. There will be teasers, giveaways, and a ton of chances to touch base and say hello. We hope you'll join us!

So, what's "Breaker?"
Breaker: Exile, Volume 1 is a gay urban fantasy romance (Book 1 of the Exile Series) that follows two men as they navigate life and love while dealing with some interesting and heartbreaking anomalies caused by the "Cure."

Breaker: Exile, Volume 1

by Kelly Wyre & A.F. Henley
In the wake of several near-cataclysmic events, humanity created the Cure, a DNA-altering antidote to death by disease and old age. But all cures come with side effects: a small percentage of the population develops a wide range of powers, some of which are lethal to others, and some which are lethal to the wielder.

These people are called the Estranged, hunted and shunned, safe only on the Island of Exile. It is here that Kaeva and Eddie meet—and where they set a prophecy in motion, quite possibly sealing their own demise, and even the end of Exile.

  • Genre: Gay, Urban Fantasy

Ellis Parker is a lucky man: he escaped his persecuting family, survived his tour of duty, and met Maxwell Clark in the city of New Amsterdam. Clark showed Ellis more than the ropes: Clark helped Ellis figure out who he is – a gay submissive with a massive fixation on a beautiful, mysterious ballet dancer named Bryn Rothe. Ellis knows a Good Man when he sees one, and he wants nothing more than to score a first date with Bryn.

Little does Ellis know that Bryn has a violent past that is crawling out of shallow graves to haunt him. Even his hectic schedule and beloved stage aren’t enough to distract him. It’s impossible for Bryn to figure out how he feels about Ellis with his demons between them, but when Ellis saves Bryn not once but twice, Bryn is forced to admit that there’s something about Ellis that Bryn might not merely want but need.

Together, they journey to the scene of Bryn’s original crime – Charles Towne, South Carolina. There they will dig up secrets that might explain Bryn’s tortured life but might also be his – and Ellis’s – undoing.

Love is Infinite.

Enter to win a free ebook copy of my supernatural, past-lives contemporary romance:

MEET ME AT THE GATES

About the book:

Outer Banks, NC bookstore owner Hyacinth Silver Fox has a secret millennia in the making: her soul was magically entwined with another, and at night she dreams of every lifetime they've ever spent together. The rules of their magic are simple: Hydee always knows her lover, but he, or she, doesn't remember her. It's up to Hydee to find and make her soulmate see they are destined for each other, and this lifetime is no different, but there's one problem: her soulmate is Theo Monk, heartthrob actor and Hollywood's sometime-infamous badboy. Hydee's hope of reuniting is wearing thin, but she has no idea how dire the situation really is.

Because meanwhile in California, Theo Monk is losing his mind. Anxiety and paranoia rule his life, along with his on-again-off-again girlfriend and her entourage. When fear and frustration push him to an edge, Theo cuts and runs as far from his problems as he can without knowing Fate's giving him one last shot to unite with the only person who can help him. Hydee and Theo must save one another before hope runs out and Hydee's despair and Theo's fear keep them apart forever.

You were on your way home when you died.
It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me.
And that’s when you met me.
“What… what happened?” You asked. “Where am I?”
“You died,” I said, matter-of-factly. No point in mincing words.
“There was a… a truck and it was skidding…”
“Yup,” I said.
“I… I died?”
“Yup. But don’t feel bad about it. Everyone dies,” I said.
You looked around. There was nothingness. Just you and me. “What is this place?” You asked. “Is this the afterlife?”
“More or less,” I said.
“Are you god?” You asked.
“Yup,” I replied. “I’m God.”
“My kids… my wife,” you said.
“What about them?”
“Will they be all right?”
“That’s what I like to see,” I said. “You just died and your main concern is for your family. That’s good stuff right there.”
You looked at me with fascination. To you, I didn’t look like God. I just looked like some man. Or possibly a woman. Some vague authority figure, maybe. More of a grammar school teacher than the almighty.
“Don’t worry,” I said. “They’ll be fine. Your kids will remember you as perfect in every way. They didn’t have time to grow contempt for you. Your wife will cry on the outside, but will be secretly relieved. To be fair, your marriage was falling apart. If it’s any consolation, she’ll feel very guilty for feeling relieved.”
“Oh,” you said. “So what happens now? Do I go to heaven or hell or something?”
“Neither,” I said. “You’ll be reincarnated.”
“Ah,” you said. “So the Hindus were right,”
“All religions are right in their own way,” I said. “Walk with me.”
You followed along as we strode through the void. “Where are we going?”
“Nowhere in particular,” I said. “It’s just nice to walk while we talk.”
“So what’s the point, then?” You asked. “When I get reborn, I’ll just be a blank slate, right? A baby. So all my experiences and everything I did in this life won’t matter.”
“Not so!” I said. “You have within you all the knowledge and experiences of all your past lives. You just don’t remember them right now.”
I stopped walking and took you by the shoulders. “Your soul is more magnificent, beautiful, and gigantic than you can possibly imagine. A human mind can only contain a tiny fraction of what you are. It’s like sticking your finger in a glass of water to see if it’s hot or cold. You put a tiny part of yourself into the vessel, and when you bring it back out, you’ve gained all the experiences it had.
“You’ve been in a human for the last 48 years, so you haven’t stretched out yet and felt the rest of your immense consciousness. If we hung out here for long enough, you’d start remembering everything. But there’s no point to doing that between each life.”
“How many times have I been reincarnated, then?”
“Oh lots. Lots and lots. An in to lots of different lives.” I said. “This time around, you’ll be a Chinese peasant girl in 540 AD.”
“Wait, what?” You stammered. “You’re sending me back in time?”
“Well, I guess technically. Time, as you know it, only exists in your universe. Things are different where I come from.”
“Where you come from?” You said.
“Oh sure,” I explained “I come from somewhere. Somewhere else. And there are others like me. I know you’ll want to know what it’s like there, but honestly you wouldn’t understand.”
“Oh,” you said, a little let down. “But wait. If I get reincarnated to other places in time, I could have interacted with myself at some point.”
“Sure. Happens all the time. And with both lives only aware of their own lifespan you don’t even know it’s happening.”
“So what’s the point of it all?”
“Seriously?” I asked. “Seriously? You’re asking me for the meaning of life? Isn’t that a little stereotypical?”
“Well it’s a reasonable question,” you persisted.
I looked you in the eye. “The meaning of life, the reason I made this whole universe, is for you to mature.”
“You mean mankind? You want us to mature?”
“No, just you. I made this whole universe for you. With each new life you grow and mature and become a larger and greater intellect.”
“Just me? What about everyone else?”
“There is no one else,” I said. “In this universe, there’s just you and me.”
You stared blankly at me. “But all the people on earth…”
“All you. Different incarnations of you.”
“Wait. I’m everyone!?”
“Now you’re getting it,” I said, with a congratulatory slap on the back.
“I’m every human being who ever lived?”
“Or who will ever live, yes.”
“I’m Abraham Lincoln?”
“And you’re John Wilkes Booth, too,” I added.
“I’m Hitler?” You said, appalled.
“And you’re the millions he killed.”
“I’m Jesus?”
“And you’re everyone who followed him.”
You fell silent.
“Every time you victimized someone,” I said, “you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.”
You thought for a long time.
“Why?” You asked me. “Why do all this?”
“Because someday, you will become like me. Because that’s what you are. You’re one of my kind. You’re my child.”
“Whoa,” you said, incredulous. “You mean I’m a god?”
“No. Not yet. You’re a fetus. You’re still growing. Once you’ve lived every human life throughout all time, you will have grown enough to be born.”
“So the whole universe,” you said, “it’s just…”
“An egg.” I answered. “Now it’s time for you to move on to your next life.”
And I sent you on your way.

Outer Banks bookstore owner Hyacinth Silver Fox has a secret millennia in the making: her soul was magically entwined with another, and at night she dreams of every lifetime they've ever spent together. The rules of their magic are simple: Hydee always knows her lover, but he, or she, doesn't remember her. It's up to Hydee to find and make her soulmate see they are destined for each other, and this lifetime is no different, but there's one problem: her soulmate is Theo Monk, heartthrob actor and Hollywood's sometime-infamous badboy. Hydee's hope of reuniting is wearing thin, but she has no idea how dire the situation really is.

Because meanwhile in California, Theo Monk is losing his mind. Anxiety and paranoia rule his life, along with his on-again-off-again girlfriend and her entourage. When fear and frustration push him to an edge, Theo cuts and runs as far from his problems as he can without knowing Fate's giving him one last shot to unite with the only person who can help him. Hydee and Theo must save one another before hope runs out and Hydee's despair and Theo's fear keep them apart forever.
