There’s only so long a book blurb can get and still be considered catchy or concise. There’s only so much visual information a book cover can contain, and for much the same reasons. A shame, really, because An Emperor for the Eclipse (the first book in my After Exile series) is home to more than […]
Last night I was enjoying a treat: getting an advance read on something new and steamy from my friend Addison Cain. Aside from it being hot perfection, as her stories always are, a passage she wrote reminded me how much I enjoy the moment in a historical romance where the couple begins to address each […]
In which I see for the first time the paperback proof of An Emperor for the Eclipse.
As I said in last week’s post, “one of these days, I might even post a couple sketches I’ve made, if you promise not to judge me too hard. Hehe.” And here we are. Over the lovely Valentine’s Day weekend I had with Mr Adderly, we spent a few hours having Art Time. Which mostly […]
The Adderly household is an artistic one, if nothing else. There are sketchbooks, pads, and canvases everywhere you look, with all sorts of artwork in various states of completion, as my husband and I are both artists. If only there was time to do more! MOAR! One of Mr. Adderly’s talents is creature design, so […]
My Christmas gift from Mr. Adderly arrived in the mail today (overseas shipping times are no joke). All the way from Greece. I was excited just to see the package! Oooh, fancy! Even the box inside comes all wrapped up in gold cloth and ribbon. What is it? What is it? What is it? […]

But really, pretty much anything that’s sold in a box with the word “massager” on it, […]
There are a lot of rules. I mean a whole lot of them. About writing and publishing. A metric crap-ton, if you will. Most of them have a solid basis in logic to back them up. I like to think I’m usually logical, but sometimes I just can’t hang. Blame it on my namesake: […]
You may already know this, or you may not, but I frequently use the traits associated with western zodiac signs as character archetypes for my stories. It works for me as a useful tool to remind me of the way each character is likely to act or think, and helps keep my brain consistent in […]
Hi all! The Literotica annual Halloween Story Contest is well under way, and there are over 50 entries so far. Now that I’ve read almost all of them, I’d like to pass on a handful of my favorites, for those of you looking for a little fun Halloween reading. They come from a variety of […]
