Speaking of writing gay werewolves for money!



THE ALPHA’S HOME will be officially released on January 5!!




An omega forced to mate an alpha he hates turns to his beta best friend for help to escape–but the only way out is to be stolen by another alpha.

Grant Denny is an omega who never wanted an alpha mate. He doesn’t want to be a sex toy for an entire pack, even if the alternative is to go through the agony of full moon heats locked up alone. But the choice has been taken away from him–he’s been given to Cliff, an alpha he can’t stand, who is keeping him in a remote cabin along with Jack, a beta who is his best friend, packmate, and the only person he’s ever wanted.

Jack Merritt is trapped in his wolf shape by the cruel alpha who claimed Grant against his will, and took Jack along with him. Jack has loved Grant forever, and he’ll do anything to stay with the omega–but Grant begs him to run away at the first chance, to try to find some way they can both escape before Grant’s heat arrives and forces him to submit to the alpha. Jack would do anything for Grant, but leaving him behind is the hardest thing he’s ever done.

Mike Gilford has been an alpha werewolf for half a year now, and he’s ready to find a mate and start a pack of his own. He never imagined that he would find them like this–a lost wolf, hurt and helpless by the side of the road, and the trapped omega he leads Mike to rescue. Mike only wants to help, but the moment he meets Grant the pull between them is undeniable–and terrifying to Grant, who is trying to escape from being bent to an alpha’s will.

Grant and Jack need a pack’s protection, and Mike is willing to give it, but can he keep them safe without keeping them prisoner? Can Grant learn to trust that Mike isn’t like the alphas he’s met before, and that his destiny as an omega isn’t the doom he’s always feared? With the full moon and Grant’s next heat on the way, there’s not much time for three wolves to make themselves a pack and find their way home…




There's also a teaser scene up on Tumblr! I still have a few advance copies available, let me know if you want one! :)

Scope note: Anonymous exchange fics are included in the Year in Review for the year in which they were revealed, so this post includes my Yuletide 2016 story, which was revealed before midnight on December 31 in my time zone. I am including the two WIPs I've posted to AO3 this year, and will also include them in future Years in Review for years in which new chapters are posted.

This year I posted 20 complete stories + 2 WIPs in 3 fandoms totalling just over 235,000 words, which made for a possibly even more mono-fannish year than last year, which was my most mono-fannish to date. I am getting fandom-monogamous in my old age, apparently. (I mean. Apart from writing gay werewolves for money, and so on.)

This year's titles quoted from Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2), Dan Fogelberg (2), Bleachers, Leonard Cohen, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Alan Jackson, Mission: Impossible, The Mountain Goats, Stan Rogers, Taylor Swift, and X Ambassadors.

One last bit of Whose Body? that needed to be shared–this comes from quite near the end of the book but, out of context, doesn’t spoil anything: it’s a neurologist speaking to a WWI veteran who has recently suffered a nervous attack, a recurrence of his shell-shock. There’s a long diagnostic interview where they discuss the particular stressors that contributed to the attack and the patient’s history of such attacks, what caused them and what didn’t, and then the doctor proceeds to tell the patient about himself “in quite untechnical language.”

This book was written in 1923, which made it remarkable to me how thorough an explanation of the neurology of triggering and flashbacks it provided–and made available to any reader of mysteries in, say, the 20s-40s, regardless of what treatments were available.




“Well, now. You know quite well that the strain you put on your nerves during the war has left its mark on you. It has left what I may call old wounds in your brain. Sensations received by your nerve-endings sent messages to your brain, and produced minute physical changes there–changes which we are only beginning to be able to detect, even with our most delicate instruments. These changes in their turn set up sensations; or I should say, more accurately, that sensations are the names we give to these changes of tissue when we perceive them: we call them horror, fear, sense of responsibility and so on.”

“Yes, I follow you.”

“Very well. Now, if you stimulate those damaged places in your brain again, you run the risk of opening up the old wounds. I mean, that if you get nerve-sensations of any kind producing the reactions which we call horror, fear, and sense of responsibility, they may go on to make disturbance right along the old channel, and produce in their turn physical changes which you will call by the names you were accustomed to associate with them–dread of German mines, responsibility for the lives of your men, strained attention and the inability to distinguish small sounds through the overpowering noise of guns.”

“I see.”

“This effect would be increased by extraneous circumstances producing other familiar physical sensations–night, cold or the rattling of heavy traffic, for instance.”




(The doctor then goes on to recommend avoiding triggers forever rather than a program of careful exposure and desensitization to them, but he has some ulterior motives for that and anyway the patient ultimately does not take his advice.)

Tumblr was being uncooperative for… some portion of yesterday, okay.

Books: I started a Lord Peter Wimsey reread so I’m currently in the middle of Unnatural Death. And after surveying my entire TBR list of Kindle books to determine if any of them would satisfy the “book over 500 pages” category in the Read Harder challenge, I picked Gambled Away to read next–it’s 600 pages of historical romance novellas in which somebody is won/lost as stakes in a game and currently on sale for 99 cents! (http://ift.tt/2gTmfsg)

Books finished: 

Whose Body? (http://ift.tt/2hvIt0j) &

Clouds of Witness (http://ift.tt/2hvIt0j) by Dorothy L. Sayers

These are both rereads, though I think it’s been ten years since I read the entire series, so I was able to be surprised all over again by a few things (I posted a few favorite shippy bits from Whose Body? (http://ift.tt/2hh1Fme) and I need to type up the neurological explanation of PTSD and triggering that it includes–for something written in a popular detective mystery in 1923 (and therefore not including the words “PTSD” or “triggering”, of course) it was remarkably congruent to modern understanding, which makes me think about what avid reader from the 1940s might still have those ideas rattling around somewhere…

Anyway. Brilliant & highly recommended, of course.

Hold Me (http://ift.tt/2fzFzKn) by Courtney Milan

You guys heard all about this yesterday. )

Fic: I currently have 10 fic tabs open, 41 things Saved for Later on AO3, and, oh, look, here comes Yuletide… O___O

Fic finished: 

(A sampling of stuff I’ve bookmarked recently–you can see all my bookmarks at http://ift.tt/2bFC4A9)

Where Is Thy Sting? (http://ift.tt/2hgUc6E) This is a WIP on the hydratrashmeme, but it’s up to part 11/? so you get a pretty satisfying chunk of story, and I think it’s pretty accessible to non-trash readers. This is an AU where Steve is found in 1947 and reunited with Peggy–and then, in 1954, Bucky is found as well, already having suffered a significant degree of programming (and significant abuses, including sexual), and Steve and Peggy are there to try to help him recover. The POV is Peggy’s, and I love everything about this perspective and this version of bringing Bucky in from the cold, her relationship with Steve, all of it. <3

Green Ice by Adina (http://ift.tt/2hvIu4n) I don’t think I ever realized that there was an expanded/completed version of the story that first appeared in Yuletide 2006, so I got to cry over Bertie all over again! For those not familiar, this is a Jeeves & Wooster/Lord Peter Wimsey crossover that seeks to reconcile the very different ways two mystery writers in the 1920s addressed the effects of the Great War on their military-aged main characters–Sayers delves into Peter’s trauma, while Wodehouse cheerfully ignores the whole bally thing. Which works as long as it’s allowed to work, and then…

Psychic AU (Hotel Heart & Safe as Houses) by Laughsalot3412 (http://ift.tt/1Ut7Kcj) Leverage OT3 where, as you might guess, psychics are a thing–Hardison is an empath who loves computers because they don’t feel things at him, Parker is a thief who uses her TK to assist her in jumping off of buildings, and Eliot… Eliot has been hurt and needs a team, even if he doesn’t realize it in the beginning. Rated T and there is indeed no actual sexual intimacy (the unexamined aceyness of the relationships is fascinating to me) but it’s tagged “Mind Rape” for Eliot’s pace and also for a lot of things that go on between Eliot and Hardison with dubious consent of the “no go ahead it’s fine, DAMMIT HARDISON I SAID IT’S FINE WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT” variety from Eliot. SO DELICIOUS.

GUYYYYYS YOU WANT TO READ THIS BOOK.

OR AT LEAST I WANT YOU TO READ THIS BOOK AND I THINK YOU WILL ENJOY IT!!!

I lost most of yesterday to reading this book and being emotionally compromised by it--it made me cry repeatedly, but, you know, in the awesome way.

It’s a het romance where the hero is a bi/pan dude of Thai and Chinese descent and the heroine is a Latina transwoman, and NONE OF THOSE LABELS ARE WHAT THE STORY IS ABOUT.

Instead, it’s a “love each other online/hate each other in real life” story where the hero’s asshole behavior isn’t magically erased by apologies and I love yous--where there’s nothing as simple as a silly misunderstanding that can be quickly cleared up, because it all matters, and the characters, knowing each other online and off, good and bad, choose to struggle through their respective issues and the ways they’ve hurt each other because love matters too, and in the end, love--real love, flawed and human, brave and determined love--wins out.

Shhh no it is definitely still the 18th SOMEWHERE. Ahem.

WIPs currently active: 6, because I deactivated [More Different Secret Exchange Story] (which, if/when reactivated, will be no longer secret or an exchange and will be known as “Magic Mike/TJ Hammond crossover”) in anticipation of getting started on [Sam/Steve Secret Exchange Story], although I haven’t actually started that one yet. SO. Still at six.

Books:

I just finished Penric and the Shaman, so Penric’s Mission is up next! I am also “in the middle” of several things in that I have not yet accepted that I am never going to finish them so they are still in the “currently reading” category on Goodreads, but I am thinking that the New Year will probably be a good time to make a clean sweep of those.

I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that I am not going to finish the Read Harder Challenge. Maybe next year? 2017 is bound to be… not 2016, right? *knocks wood*

Books finished:

Penric and the Shaman (http://ift.tt/2h8fXVF) by Lois McMaster Bujold

This is the second in the series, after Penric’s Demon, and, oh man. <3 <3 <3 There are THE BEST DOGS and also I burst into tears at the climax and also an excellent line about the Son of Autumn and who belongs to him. <3 <3 <3

Ice Planet Barbarians (http://ift.tt/2d3me07) & 

Barbarian Alien (http://ift.tt/2h8hr1P) by Ruby Dixon

I KNOW I KNOW BUT THEY’RE ACTUALLY KINDA… GOOD? AWESOME??

These are the first two of 11 or so books, following the fate of a dozen young women abducted by aliens from all over the US (and one from Canada) and whisked off to space to be… sold, probably. Six of them are put in cryostasis by the aliens, but several more are packed into a cage in a cargo hold, aware of their fate and abused by their guards. In Book 1, Ice Planet Barbarians, our heroine is Georgie, who takes the lead on a plan to fight back, which… kind of succeeds, in that Georgie bludgeons an alien guard to death. Unfortunately, they can’t go on to take over the ship because they’ve been jettisoned from it, abandoned on a harsh ice planet in the jammies they were wearing when the aliens abducted them from their beds. 

And that, obviously, is when Georgie strikes out to scout for food/shelter/help and meets a seven-foot tall blue alien dude who realizes instantly that she is his perfect match for making babies with! :D :D :D 

(No seriously though they’re ACTUALLY GOOD? AND KINDA ADDICTIVE?? TW for rape & multiple deaths in the first book though.)

Fics:

I have ten fic tabs open, including “The True Repairman Will Repair Man” (http://ift.tt/2bx2oJI) which is on part 16/? and needs a reread, as the Plot Is Thickening. :D

Something Like This by @emmagrant01 (http://ift.tt/1oHy0BG) Check, Please! Jack/Bitty, Parse/OMC. Complete, as of today, at 280k. <3________<3 If you need a huge long immersive Jack-and-Bitty-getting-together story, complete with Parse also finding true love along the way, HERE IT IS. AU before Jack and Bitty got together in canon, and featuring a demisexual Jack, which was catnip to me. Gorgeous. 

Weary World Rejoicing by @annakovsky (http://ift.tt/2gd0a3f) Buffy the Vampire Slayer, post-”The Gift” apocalypse AU. This fic is just about 13 years old, but I think of it every time I hear “O Holy Night” and this year I actually went and reread it. Oh, everyone. (Then I read the sequel for, I think, the very first time, and OH EVERYONE ;______; and also I spent many confused minutes afterward pawing through the Wikipedia article on the Fisher King, hoping to make things make sense. Which, ha ha, why would a grail legend make sense of anything ever.)

I am finally, in the year 2016--2017, actually--going to have fic appearing in a zine! Except we're calling it a "fanbook" and/or a "Stucky anthology" nowadays, apparently.

Still! Not Without You is going to be a thing, and I will have a story (the one I refer to as "Saddest Steve/Bucky I Could Think Of" in WIP status updates) in it! There's going to be a Kickstarter to fund printing it in full color, since it involves 300 pages of fic and art--digital copies will be $5, print copies start at $25 with other extras available at higher tiers.

You can sign up here to get an email when the Kickstarter gets going, or if you're on the Tumblrs you can follow the link above to the blog and follow there!

So, FUNNY STORY, back around the same time that I started doing my weekly WIP status update posts, I also started doing What I’m Reading Wednesday posts, and then in mid-September I stopped doing the What I’m Reading posts and never started again and I am FINALLY GONNA TELL YOU WHY. AND ALSO WHAT I AM READING:

an early name used for videophones by [archiveofourown.org profile] easyforpauline.

And the thing is, I read the first three stories in the series back in September and it just BLEW MY MIND?? and I knew I HAD TO write about it in my What I’m Reading post but I just COULD NOT EVEN FIND WORDS, because it’s just–

It’s so–

It’s like hardcore kink and surrealism had a baby, I guess? It just DIVES ON IN with Bucky sleeping on a table and Steve washing his mouth out with soap and spitting on him and WELL OKAY THEN, OFF WE GO, and by the time you get to Bucky fucking an arcade game and setting Steve a kinky ingredient sex challenge it’s just like. Well, yes, of course, this is how they roll, I’M IN. 

Except, underneath the PROFOUND WEIRDNESS that is like nothing else I’ve read and the IN MEDIAS SUUUUPER HARDCORE D/S RELATIONSHIP LIKE HOLY SHIT MAN, there is so, so much love, and such a deeply intimate portrayal of a Bucky recovering along his own path, and a Steve who also has a lot of healing to do, and a love between them that makes it possible for them to be exactly this weird and brutal and just keep on going together, and it is gorgeous.

So–yeah. Ugh. It’s amazing. It’s brilliant. I know there are a million alarming tags on it–some of them gave me pause, I definitely passed it by while browsing one kink tag or another more than once–but, ugh, I am telling you, give it a whirl. It is so well done and also SO WEIRD in a way I cannot even do justice to. I NEED YOU TO READ THIS SO I CAN WAVE MY ARMS INARTICULATELY AT MORE PEOPLE ABOUT IT.

PLEASE. READ IT FOR ME. AND THEN COME YELL ABOUT IT. BECAUSE !!!!!!????!!!!!!

And now that I have FINALLY discharged my desperate need to rec this series (a fourth story came out and I read it just now, so it’s timely and everything) I will go back to updating you on a weekly basis about other stuff I read, but… I’ll do a separate post for that. This one definitely deserves it own.

Well. This week was… a week. Honestly I’m proud of getting any writing done at all. And I find I’m having a very hard time reconciling my firm philosophical belief that People Need Stories, always, especially in Times Like These, with actually unplugging from Current Events to do the damn writing. But. Onward!

WIPs currently active: 4. Because I finished Slavefic #4!! I suppose technically that means Slavefic #5, of which I actually have non-zero words written although I’m not sure how many I’m keeping, automatically becomes In Progress now but let me just enjoy my tidy and svelte little WIP list for a minute, okay?

Words written this week: 6,618. And I did manage to write every single day, Monday to Saturday. Including the day of and day after the election. Yay?

WIPs that got no words this week: 2, the broken dick epic & Born in the Blood - more a result of pushing to finish the slavefic and having arrived at places that require some thinking for each of those than Current Events, but… back to the salt mines tomorrow.
