Update to Mr. Trouble

Thanks to everyone for the encouraging comments last week!  I've got a few more chapters written, so at the very least, I'll post those.  For those of you who read last week, you realize this is a different kind of story for me, in that both of the main characters have disabilities.

Chapter 2

And for those of you who didn't read last week, Chapter 1 is here.

Devo Diary is back!

Hi everyone, I'm finally back from my extended hiatus. Sorry about that! I have several more chapters ready to go. I'll be posting every other week on Wednesdays.

Devo Diary Chapter 45: William, coda

I know it's been a long time, and by now there are a ton of names to keep track of. Here's a quick recap: At this point, it's 2004 and I've just returned from my 6 month stay in Taipei, where I experimented unsuccessfully with being a lesbian and checking out the local BDSM scene. Now I'm back in the US, trying to finish up my graduate degree, and still singing in a semi-professional opera company.

Here are the main people who show up in this chapter:

K: the blind guy I dated in college, who broke my heart. After years of no contact, I suddenly stumbled across him online and re-initiated contact, only to discover he's living not far from me. We promised to met in person when I returned to the US.

The Mantis: paraplegic guy I met at a BDSM club. We had a Mistress/slave relationship for six months before I left, in secret because he was cheating on his wife. While I was away, they amicably divorced and he's now living openly in the scene, with a new girlfriend named Titania.

William: the dashing, handsome bass in the opera, who I dated briefly before leaving town. I'm still in love with him, even though we're not dating.

Sarah: my best friend from grad school, with the curly red hair and sullen disposition.

Ariel: another friend from the opera, in charge of wigs.

Lulu: my best friend in the opera company. She's also into BDSM in a big way, and we've gone to many events together.

Marty: in the men's chorus, also the head of the local BDSM social club. Lulu's ex-boyfriend.

Suzanna: the lead soprano in the opera company, but friendly with all the women in the chorus.

Kara and Nam: a married couple, my two best friends from college, living in the Midwest.

Here is the Table of Contents, if you want to read from the beginning.

New Story: Mr. Trouble

So this is a story I started during the summer, and every time I got really motivated to work on it, I got pulled away by life stuff.  And eventually, I realized I'd completely lost my motivation.  I was TRYING to write it and it was just so hard, and honestly, I can never tell what you guys are going to like till I post it here.  So I didn't finish it, but I figured I would put it out there and see if it's worth continuing.

All right, now that I've babbled on for a full paragraph, here is....

Mr. Trouble


Trouble.  This boy was trouble.

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, my book Love Bites is currently live on Amazon!

It's only $2.99 on the Kindle, and FREE if you have Kindle Unlimited!  Here is the blurb:

Is it possible my sweet, handsome, charming boyfriend could be a vampire?

I know, I know, vampires aren’t real, except in fiction and folklore, but hear me out. I’ve got some convincing evidence…

Let’s start with the obvious. His name is Hunter. HUNTER. That’s a vampire name if you’ve ever heard one, right? And his white, sharp teeth are clearly capable of piercing the thickest of skin.

Then there’s his pale complexion. We’re talking get-this-guy-to-a-tanning-booth-ASAP pale.

And he has a weird tendency to compliment my “intoxicating scent,” especially when I get home from work. Did I mention I’m a phlebotomist?

Most concerning, I’m starting to suspect he killed and drank the blood of one of my closest friends.

My neighbor Jamie warned me to stay away from him or risk becoming his next victim. But Jamie may have his own ulterior motives.

Anyway, I’m taking my chances. What’s the worst that could happen?

Buy it now on Amazon!  And please be sure to let me know what you think when you finish!

Thank you!!!!!

P.S. A big thanks to Avery Kingston for the above graphic :)
