New chapter "Will Love Prevail"

Hi friends, 😍
I am happy I got Mondays to post, seems all the holidays lately fall onto Monday so I want to now wish you a very happy new year and all the best wishes and hope dreams come true for 2019. I think it will be a good year. I'm looking forward to some exciting times.🌎🌞🌎
Thanks for everyone reading and commenting last week, very much appreciated.
I give you Chapter 10 of Will Love Prevail. So, I did cut this chapter in half because it would have just been too long and I wanted to make sure I edit it as good as I can for you and present you with an enjoyable chapter. You will get some back story on Chiara and I have to say I had to educate myself some on writing a good flashback. I hope it turned out well, grammar is important with that.
You will also read about much awaited closeness between Mark and Chiara leading up to next week's chapter. 💕
Well then, Happy New Year to all of you,
Hugs, Dani🍷

Last Update to Mr. Trouble

Some of you still seemed to be enjoying this story, so I'm posting one final update to Mr. Trouble:

Chapter 5

Next week, I will return with a totally new story about the blind veteran.  It's the very first story I've written about a blind hero and I'm pretty excited about it!

Mr. Perfect Update & Extra

Hi, everyone!

So, this week we get to see their date. Personally, this is my very favorite chapter, I hope you will like it too! Please, leave a review, it really motivates me. I had the first four chapters ready, now I'm writing the fifth and I'll hopefully try to have it ready till next Saturday.

I've also been writing something on the side that has taken a lot of my attention, and I'd like to hear your opinion on it, if it's worth continuing, what could be improved/changed... It's very experimental, I haven't even proofread it and I'm not even sure what the characters names are yet. I just want some feedback, so it's just a sample.

Without further ado, Here's Chapter IV to He's Not Mr. Perfect

Here's the preview of what I'll call Anita for now, because that's the girl's name and the only thing I have sorted out yet, haha

Merry Christmas! In/Exhale Returns!

Hey, everyone,

Hope those of you who celebrate had a good holiday, and even if you didn't, hope this gift will cheer you up: the first episode of In/Exhale in a very long time.

The long and short of it is my dad got sick very suddenly two years ago and was in the hospital for a month before he died, and the stress of all that pushed me into a very, very bad flare up. I did eventually get a diagnosis *finally* of a super, super rare genetic disease, and started a new treatment, but it takes a very long time to work. So for the past couple years, honestly I haven't been able to write very much.

So I'm especially happy to bring the conclusion of Season 3 to you starting today. I'm sorry I don't have a "previously on" recap written, so I'll just run through the highlights of S3 to refresh your memory (though of course re-reading it yourself is always best, and if you want to, check out the Table of Contents).

If you want to read the abbreviated summary of what happened before this next episode, hit the break. Otherwise, you can jump right into reading here:

February 12, 2001 - Part I

I will most likely post on an every-other-week schedule as I still haven't quite finished the final day of the season, and I'm praying that will give me enough time to get it done without another interruption. The blog is really busy right now (which is awesome), so I'll be changing days after today. I'll  post every other Wednesday after this week for the time being (alternating with Devogirl). So the next episode will be the Wednesday after next, or Jan 9.

Thank you so much for all your support and understanding. It really means a lot to me. I do read (and often re-read) everyone's comments even if I don't always reply. They often help keep me going when times are tough. So thanks again.

New chapter "Will Love Prevail"

Hi friends of "Will Love Prevail", 🎄
so I was running a bit late today with all the holiday craziness but here is the next chapter.
I give you Chapter 9 of "Will Love Prevail" and I think it's a chapter you will enjoy because Chiara and Mark are finally getting closer and it is paving the way for even more closeness. Stay tuned for next week's chapter. ☃
With that I wish everyone near and far a Merry Christmas hopefully surrounded by your loved ones and focusing on the important things in life, health, family and friends. You all live everywhere and I don't know you but I consider you friends and I'm happy to write for you.
Merry Christmas! Frohe Weihnachten! Feliz Navidad! Joyeux Noel!
Hugs, Dani 🎅

Update to Mr. Trouble

Okay, so I asked last week and the feedback was that you wanted to read more about Maddie and Liam.  Except some of you didn't.  But since that seemed to be the majority opinion, I'm gonna go with it, at least until the end of 2018.

For those of you who need a reminder, in the last chapter, Liam took Maddie to a sex shop.  Now she's going home to her boyfriend, who's not going to be happy about it...

Chapter 4

And in case you want to read from the beginning, here are the other chapters.

Here's Chapter III of He's Not Mr. Perfect.

New Chapter "Will Love Prevail"

Hi friends,🌼
Monday morning 12:30 am/00:30 and I just got home from work a little while ago.
I still wanted to make sure you get the story as soon as you check and here is Chapter 8 of Will Love Prevail.
I worked all weekend and so I may have not had as much time as usual to edit and read over the story enough times to catch any mishaps. If you find any, please forgive me.
Thanks for everyone reading and commenting, have a great week,
Hugs, Dani 💗

Update to the Grinch and Question for the Readers

So I didn't want to start posting a brand new story prior to the holidays, so I'm posting one more chapter of Grinch, but I know a lot of you have already read the whole thing.  So below the link is a question for the readers...

Chapter 9

Okay, here's the question:

I've got a ton of writing on my hard drive and I have no idea what you guys want to read.  I don't want to start posting a new story until January.  But what would you like to read for the last 2 Sundays until the new year?  A couple more chapters of Grinch?  The last chapter of Dean and Callie's story?  More of Liam and Maddie's story? (That was the couple where they were both disabled.)  Please weigh in!  I can't make independent decisions.

Furthermore, I have four fully written books in the queue.  The two I am considering posting next are:

An Iraqi veteran who has lost his sight

A quadriplegic who hires a fake date to go with him to his ex-fiancée's wedding

Hi everyone—

By now, ya'll who have stuck with this story from the beginning know what a journey it's been! I just wanted to say thank you to anyone who has been a reader these past seven months—all, or part, it doesn't matter. Thanks for taking the time. 

And for everyone who has commented, or consistently commented, thank you so much for the support. It has truly made posting an incredibly rewarding experience, and something I looked forward to every single week. You guys are the best. 

I'm going to take a little break, but I will definitely be back soon. This was too much fun and I've definitely got more stories to share. 

So, without ado, here is the Epilogue

How the Grinch Stole My Heart: The Book!

For those of you who are impatient to read the entire story of Jeremy and Noelle, at midnight tonight, How the Grinch Stole My Heart will be available for purchase:

Single mom Noelle can’t stand her crotchety next-door neighbor.

She’s never met the man in person, but Mr. Grieder, a.k.a. Mr. Grinch, leaves her nasty notes whenever her son plays in the hallway. He complained until their doorman got rid of the beautiful Christmas tree in the lobby. He even slammed his door on the Girl Scout Carolers. This is Noelle’s first Christmas since a painful divorce, and this grouchy old hermit seems determined to make her favorite holiday as unpleasant as he possibly can.

Except there are two things Noelle doesn’t know about Mr. Grinch:

One, he’s not an old man.

And two, he’s going to be her date for Saturday night.

This book has the backstory behind Jeremy's stroke and lots of cut scenes, and of course, the conclusion to the story (there's quite a bit left).  Get it now for only $2.99 on the Kindle or absolutely FREE if you have Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited!

Update to the Grinch

Will Jeremy finally get up the nerve to ask Noelle on a date?  Find out....

He's Not Mr. Perfect - New Story


I've been writing this for a while and I hope you people will like it. I''ve proofread it several times, but I know I might be missing something. Plus, English isn't my first language, so if there's any way I can improve my writing, let me know in the comments! I'd love some feedback.
I've scheduled this, so I hope everything works out just fine.

Here's the first chapter of He's Not Mr. Perfect.

Are Thursdays Free?

Hey, all. Chie here. I'm not trying to steal Lovis's thunder by posting this right now, but taking a preliminary glance at the posts it looks like most days are taken. Is Thursday available? I would ideally like to start posting In/Exhale weekly again starting this coming Thursday, December 13, but I don't want to step on anyone's toes if someone else is already posting on that day. If so, are any days available? And if not, is it OK to double-post on one day? I could start the week after this coming one if necessary.

Thanks in advance,


A Little Christmas Story

Hi everyone,

I know this is Free Friday and I hope it’s okay if I squeeze in this week and the next two with a little Christmas story. I had planned to post on Saturdays again but since there’s a new story scheduled by a new author tomorrow I will do it this way (btw, I had a sneak peek at the story that will be posted tomorrow, and it sounds awesome!). Anyway, I’m going to post on Fridays only if there’s no short or irregularly updated story scheduled, so I hope this won’t be a problem.

Here’s Christmas banquet – Chapter 1. Let me know what you think!

Also, I’d really like to be able to announce that this is a comeback for me as a regularly contributing author on this site… but it’s not. I recently became a mom and my daughter has thoroughly managed to turn my life upside down. Honestly, I could not be more happy (not all times, though, hell no, it’s no fun waking up after barely having slept during the night, to find a slobbery pacifier stuck to your cheek and the room smelling of milk and vomit, with the prospect of having to change diapers before breakfast… but when the baby opens its eyes and glances at you trying to sneak out of bed… and smiles!… then it’s all just worth it), but all in all, I barely have the time or the mind to write anything. I might jump in with a short story once in a while, and I’ll stick around as a reader definitely, but don’t expect more for a while.

Update to the Consolation Prize

Hi everyone! 

Thank you thank you so so much for all of the comments last week. It seems like this story has really meant something to all the readers here, and it makes me so happy. 

Here is the final chapter for The Consolation Prize. I'm planning to post an Epilogue next week, so don't worry—we'll get to see into Scottie and Will's future, but unfortunately their story is coming to a close...for now. 

Again, thanks so much for sticking with me since May. This has become an epic tale—something I never anticipated. Ya'll are the best. 

Chapter 26

New Devo Diary

Time for some more Devo Diary! Holy crap, I'm up to fifty chapters! I can't believe how long this is. Thank you so much for sticking with me for so many posts and over so many years. There's still a lot more to tell.

In this chapter, I'm back in hetero land with yet another dude from a dating site. Will it go well or will it be a hilarious disaster? If you've been reading along you probably know the answer already. Plus we hear a bit more from Mickey Cross too.

New Chapter "Will Love Prevail"

Hi friends,
here is another Monday and it's time for some more of Chiara and Mark.
I have to admit though that I am feeling unsure about posting anymore for this story.
I was really hoping to get a bit more support/feedback last week after I had felt so anxious about the story and basically had decided to rewrite it. The story was up to almost 200 pages and to start basically at zero again was a big deal for me. But I wanted you guys to see Mark and Chiara meet up now already instead of 100 more pages down the road.
Unfortunately I didn't get but two people give me any feedback and I have to say it's a bit discouraging. Maybe you're not really feeling the story. I know it has language and the theme may not be everyone's cup of tea.
But before I decided to rewrite so Mark and Chiara could be together I lay awake for hours thinking about this and felt very anxious. So I guess I was hoping for a bit more feedback if you like the way the story was developing.
I'm willing to open up another channel of communication with me for people who don't have Google and can't comment. My email is:
Now here is the chapter for this week Chapter 6
I really hope you are enjoying the story and I would really like to hear if you do.
Thanks for reading,
Hugs, Dani
