Beneath Stained Glass Wings: For Free!

BSGW Cover Ebook

 

Yep! As the title said, the ebook of Beneath Stained Glass wings is up for FREE right over here! The world’s going through a hell of a hard time right now, and while I can’t contribute in huge, meaningful ways, I figured that offering a book might help someone escape. Novels have gotten me through so many tough times, and the magic they gave me when I lacked any light is one of the reasons I write today. So I hope that you can find some solace in escaping into this book. All I ask is that you drop a review onto Amazon or Goodreads if you can! Please feel free to share around this post, or to spread around the posts I’ve made on Twitter and Tumblr to spread the word if you know anyone who might enjoy a book like this one!

Ava is on the run for a crime punishable by death: killing a dragon.

As a human-dragon hybrid, Ava has never doubted the godlike dragons’ dominance. Her life has been sheltered beneath their stained-glass wings in the city in the sky—until she murders one.

Hunted, she flees to the human desert below the floating city. Yet she’s not alone. Though he doesn’t know the crime she’s running from, Vito, the dragon Ava serves, refuses to abandon her to the harsh world of humans. Paired to be her master and she his caretaker, their friendship has always meant more than titles.

The desert holds no sanctuary for them. The long-suffering ground dwellers are tired of having their water supply monopolized by the dragons above and want all dragon-kind dead—including Ava and Vito. Surrendering to the dragons isn’t an option with Vito by her side, and the rebellion has offered a tempting deal. They will keep Ava alive and hide her crime, but only if she reveals the weaknesses of dragon-kind and the secrets of her city. Ava must choose between her life and everything she once called home—including Vito, the closest thing to family she has left.

Patreon Launch!

Well… it’s been a hot minute, hasn’t it? I’m not sure anyone follows this blog anymore, but I figured I’d update you all if you do!

If you follow me on Tumblr/Twitter you may have noticed that I’ve diversified what I write, AKA I got sucked into fanfiction for the first time in my life. A little over a year ago I was in a hell of a dark place–I’d lost all hope of being agented and pursuing traditional publishing yet again, my herniated disc situation had no hope of any relief from the pain, I didn’t know what I could do for a job when I could hardly sit up, among many other things. And I couldn’t even escape into books because picking up a published book reminded me how I failed writing in every way. (Regardless of whether or not I actually failed, it felt like it–still feels like it sometimes.) They would make me physically ill to read, which I know is ~dramatique~, but it was just years and years of being beaten down piling up on me, and I didn’t know what to do.

And then I was scrolling through Tumblr, and happened across a short ficlet of Yuri!!! on Ice fanfiction. Typically I just scroll past stuff like this on my dash, but when I saw it I remembered how happy that show had made me, how good it was. So I indulged. For months. And probably millions of words. And for the first time in a while, I felt somewhat happy? Most people equate fanfiction with being mindless, bad smut, but I’ve found stories that are more intricate and breathtaking that I’d ever read of anything published, regardless of the rating. These authors break the rules and the mold to create masterpieces that are free.

It’d been years since I’d actually really wanted to write, but I wanted to give back to this wonderful community that dragged me out from the depths of hopelessness and helplessness and possibly also purposefully write something that could never be published and was super indulgent and fun.

So I wrote a fic. Then one fic turned to two, then to three, then more and more until we end up here? Somehow??? I have a mildly popular fic under my belt, an amazing Discord server, and I’ve gotten the opportunity to share my original work again through, Patreon.

I’ve been posting chapters of Beneath Stained Glass Wings (AKA Poop Dragon AKA the novel that’s been through hell and back again with me) for a few weeks now, and there are also opportunities to see and influence exclusive content for Patrons! Not to mention access to my fanfic stuff earlier than everyone else. And I’m always looking to expand what I offer, so I take suggestions and comments to heart. I know the chances of me being able to support myself doing this are very, very slim, but it’s so amazing to finally be at the point where people care and appreciate my work enough to invest in me and my career. So if you’ve ever enjoyed the content that I put out, and would like to support me and/or read more of my work, please consider checking it out? And if you don’t have the cash to spare (which I totally understand), maybe consider sharing my posting on Tumblr and Twitter?

TLDR; I bucked up and finally started a Patron because fandom ROCKS (and I miss writing original fic), and I want to release all sorts of content for peeps to enjoy. :D

Prompt Call: SUMMER

Prompt call time! Give me your prompts, and I’ll take every last one and work it into a short story. This time, the theme is Summer! Anything goes: ideas, words, pictures, poetry, music, whatever you can throw at me. You don’t have to follow the theme, it’s just a nudge to get your brain juices flowing. Otherwise, the general rules apply:

  • You can prompt at any point in time, here or on any social media where I lurk (like on these posts on Insta, Twitter, and Tumblr), but if it might get worked into the next story if it’s later.
  • You can give me as many prompts as you like—just pretty please keep it within reason.
  • Keep prompts PG-13, and nothing offensive.
  • By giving me prompts, you’re giving me the honor to do whatever I’d like with them in/with my stories as my content. Prompts themselves remains to whoever owns them.

For more info, stories, and custom stories, check out the project page. And if you want to support this project, consider giving me a coffee on Ko-Fi?

Now, hit me with those prompts! And look forward to the story written with last theme’s prompts going live tomorrow!!!
