I haven’t seen the new Thor movie yet. My friends have given it mixed reviews. I have to see it because I wrote a whole fanfic series where Bruce Banner, alter ego of Hulk, and Loki fall in love and are a happy couple living in New York City. The pairing is called GammaFrost.
I began writing these sweet, smutty stories while in the grip of writer’s block. The warm reception they received from fans encouraged me to start publishing my original works.
If you’re curious, you can find one of them, Loki Gets Blue, on Ao3 here.
Here’s an excerpt. Bruce, a scientist, struggles with loving a god of lies.
People always fell in love with lies. With facades. In reality people were nothing more than gristle and bone, motes of dust swirling around electrical impulses, a superficial collection of atoms, of quarks. But there was more than that. The bass note underneath it all. That spark—the universe straining to understand itself.
His Dungeon Discovery is the sequel to Because Faery Godmonster. You don’t have to have read the first one to enjoy the second one, but I strongly recommend it.Like the first book, this is a rather silly, smutty story. I did try to do something different, however.
Since the first book showed the lovers getting together, I thought the second book should show their bond being tested. Classically, this would be done with a love triangle. But I don’t especially like love triangles, and I always prefer to do my own thing. So I gave them a young orphan with a vocabulary limited to one word and challenged them with taking care of her. Goss, the more nurturing of the couple, bonds to her immediately and wants to protect and adopt her. Pox thinks she stinks and is rather tiresome.
So that’s the main source of conflict between the lovers in my story. One wants to nest, but the other isn’t ready. It’s a funny little fantasy story, but I wanted it to have an honesty to it. In my life, wanting different things/ being at different life stages have been the big relationship problems–not the tall, dark stranger.
Now you know why Lady Grawgraw plays such a pivotal role in the story!

I re-released Because Faery Godmonster as a collector’s edition. Yeah, that’s pretty cheesy, but have you read the book? (If not, you should!) BFG is a quirky gay romantic comedy, but it’s also a geeky homage to RPGs. So, slapping on a new cover, changing some formatting, and adding the first chapter of the sequel seemed like a perfect collector’s edition.
For part of junior high (middle school) and all of high school, I lived with my evangelical Christian grandmother. Not only did she think being gay was a sin, she also forbid me from playing D & D. Sooo, I guess I should have dedicated this book to her since it’s basically what happens when urges like that get bottled up too long. (She would hate it.)

Lover, Destroyer is now available in paperback! This is the first time I’ve offered something in a format other than electronic.
I prefer ebooks, but I realized from an informal survey on my Facebook page that many people prefer paperback. I’m going to try to offer everything in mixed formats, but it will take a while. The process of formatting the manuscript and getting new book covers takes time and money. It’s exciting, however, so I’m sure I’ll get to all of them eventually.

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.
