If you’re needing a laugh and a steamy story of true love, pick up a copy of Chainmail and Velvet. It’s Because Faery Godmonster and His Dungeon Discovery snuggled under one beautiful cover designed by C J Douglass.
Opposites attract in a D&D-inspired fairytale land occupied by nightsprites, vampire werebears, hobgoblins, farting dwarves, and kindly druids who get stuck in the form of giant possums.
Amid the angst and crude humor, romance abounds and love, even when sorely tested, endures.
Here’s the book cover for His Dungeon Discovery: Chainmail and Velvet Book 2. This book cover was created by next_hub. You can find her here. I really love how she tries to find pics that look like how I describe the characters. I particularly love Pox on this one. He looks very much like I imagined him.
I’m hoping to release the book sometime soon. It’s a steamy romantic comedy. I hope it’s as fun to read as it has been to write. It’s the sequel to Because Faery Godmonster, which is available on Amazon and is free with Kindle Unlimited.
This is just a quick update for anyone interested in what I’m working on now. I’m about 50 thousand words into the third Astralsphere book. I’m estimating it at about 100-130 thousand words. We’ll see. It is sort of on the back burner at the moment. I realized I could finish an m/m (gay) romance that I had started more quickly, so I’m devoting all of my current energy to it.
No, it’s not the sequel to Because Faery Godmonster, my first m/m romance. That one was a zany romantic comedy. This new one has some humor, but it’s more serious. It’s set in the dystopian world of my het fantasy romance, The Inquisitor’s Gift. (Cinder actually has a supporting role in it because I love him and can’t resist writing him into everything. His world clashes with that of The Astrasphere Spiral, otherwise he and Lycian would be buddies. Lycian could really use a friend like Cinder. sigh)
I’ll probably write the sequel to Because Faery Godmonster after I finish the next Astralasphere book. So, that romcom sequel will probably be out sometime around the first of next year, but I’ll try for sooner. I think the Velvet and Chainmail series is going to be really fun to write. The sequel is currently in a rough outline form.
I don’t know that the genres of my books make much sense from a marketing point of view–I have coming of age tales mixed with erotic romances, but they all have a fantasy element. They make sense in my head.
June is Pride Month! Pox and Gossamer, the heroes of my zany fantasy romcom want to celebrate it with you. You can get a free copy of Because Faery Godmonster here.
Because Faery Godmonster is about a warrior-priest named Goss–short for Gossamer and a necromancer named Pox. It garnered 4.25 stars on Joyfully Jay. Check out the review here. And here’s a highlight:
The world building is light and simple, drawing on familiar tropes to anyone whose ready a fantasy story or played any MMO — be it table-top or online — which helps color in the background world and story. The characters are true to themselves without falling into cliched tropes, only skirting lightly around them.
This was a fun book to read, with just enough humor and romance to flesh out the plot. I’m glad there are sequels planned because I truly enjoyed watching Goss and Pox make a muddle of things. I can’t wait to see what’s next in store for them.
The light, geekily goofy flavor of this sexy little story is very different from my other books, which are darker and heavier. Look for a sequel later this year!
