Pretties... Come visit my Pretty

Greetings my Pretties!

Look up!!! See my very own pretty.The very talented Zathyn Priest of Scarlet Designs created him for me. Sadly, my sweet lovely is without a name. I need to find something magical, mystical and sexy for him. Suggestions?

Updates on my work:

The Dark Angels: Happy Hanukkah
The hot ones are now with the second line editor. Very excited about this story. If you like men having hot sex this is a wonderful holiday present to give to yourself.

The Dark Angels: Yaoi Con Adventure
This will be a free read. It is what happens when two rock stars are involved in cos play at Yaoi Con. My two lovely betas are looking at it as I type. Saying "What the hell is Z. trying to say?"... "Is that even possible?" I know this because I can hear their screams.
Made In China 1 & 2 
The Goddess Editor Kris Jacen of MLR Press is interested which is a relief because my youngest character is simply out of control with his need for his lover whose in Made In China. (He's forcing me bump the order of the books.... my adorable artist is making me crazy) Though I guess it's probably my fault since I wrote his princess-like deflowering before I knew if The Dark Angels & Made In China would co-exist.
On a different note, I am thrilled to share some of the experiences I had living in China for the past 6 yrs. One of the characters is from LA so he completely experiences the same WTC  or Welcome to China effect, I did. So many senseless time wasting things that make me thrilled to move back to the USA. Made In China is a great group of guys living in a place (my old apt actually) where gay is truly hidden. But things are changing there...
80's mixed tape
I really really really tried not to answer the open call MLR Press put out for stories about 80's mixed tapes. As the characters were forming, I was strong. I ignored them... until Thursday Euclid decided to introduce me to The Libertines (an British Punk Rock band that imploded due to drug use)... I could have ignored except for the fact that the leads were in love... the longing looks were full of yearning was enough to nearly kill me. I tried not to answer the call but it made me want to tear off my own skin. I had to give my inspirations a happily ever after...  So I have their course plotted and I am in the anger stage at one of the characters... silly but I am pissed I had trouble writing a sex memory. (Now that's a crisis for Z. Allora...) 
Near Miss
Today is Samhain (Halloween... Witch's New Year...OCT 31st) I will say I am thrilled to have a pagan character to play with... I am setting these characters in New Hope PA and Philadelphia. I guess I am a bit homesick for the place I called home for many years. These men meet up every six months at Yaoi Con and a writer's convention... attending the GRL may have had an influence especially since the characters were born in a drunken go-round with other authors.
Club Zombie 1&2
Awaiting edits from Tiffany at Stiff Rain on Zombies Ahead.
Alex and Ulrich are anxious to get my focus for the next installment... but I am a bit worried where Club Zombie will be taking me with book 2. 
***I must plead once again... Stop Zombie Prejudice! I swear once you meet my sweet zombies you'll be coming back for more***
The Ladyboy Chronicles: Illusions & Dreams
Reworking Chapter 7. Eden Winters is a pure Goddess for all of her feedback, suggestions and patience. 
 I had an interesting discussion with a transman and it reinforced I really need an author's note to the reader... Ladyboys have a that very different energy from transgender people in the West. This has a 5 book arc (which will include sex trafficking and kidnapping) but the moral of this series will be Love Is Love.

Other musings:
Almonds arouse passions in females (Session Magazine)... High in Vit E, magnesium and fiber... just saying.
