LITT - Dani

 Hi readers, 😊

here is the fourth chapter of LITT (Love in Troubled Times). Brendan and Ava cross paths again. 

It's a long chapter, and you'll see some things in the writing that may be odd or that you are unfamiliar with. With certain things, mainly in dialogue, I'm trying very hard to be true to how people may say things or talk. I'm not using full-on Irish slang, but I did put some of it in there, limited, so it's not too hard to understand. It's a lot of work to do this, and I don't know why I  took this on. 😳 I truly hope it's not too weird. There are also again a few footnotes for reference.

I've also thought long and hard about using "me" instead of "my", so you'll see I'm using "me" in dialogue. 

Anyways, here Brendan and Ava cross paths again, and you'll learn more about them. Please, if you can, let me know what you think. This story has kept me invested so much. Thank you for reading!

Hope this finds everyone well. 

Hugs, Dani 💗

and the (totally) unexpected happens in LET IT SNOW... again

 HEY! I should've posted this last week but, ehhh, things got pretty busy! So here it is another chapter of Let it Snow, in which Will begs and Nick complies because he definitely doesn't like her. 

HERE's chapter six!

Also, thank you for all the feedback and I'm glad you're enjoying it! I'm thinking about posting the Onde Anda Você update next week, but also, I've been insanely... inspired recently and I might be dropping a few short stories soon? No promises! Because I suck at keeping those. But yeah! See you soon!

LITT - Dani

 Hi readers, 

sorry, it took me a week to post the next chapter. I thought the last one was so long that I would give some time in between and also for the other author with her story. 

I actually have been doubtful if I want to keep posting. I just don't know...I'm kinda torn, really. 

In a way, this story took a lot of emotions from me over the past years, and yes, I'm actually probably processing some of my own personal things in it. My mom has vascular dementia, and it's been super difficult for me for a while. When I started writing the story, this part just kind of came into it. 

Anyways, I decided to post another chapter, and I'm sorry, but Ava is not in it yet. Instead, we get a bit more connections between Brendan and his mother and family. It also does have some Catholic religious content, just FYI.

Brendan meets Ava again in the next chapter. Please let me know if you enjoy the story; it means a lot to me. 

Here is the next chapter:

Love in Troubled Times - Chapter 3

Thank you for reading, 

Hugs, Dani

and they spend more time together, a LET IT SNOW update!

Hello, you lovely PD people! I knooooow it took me longer than intended, but I'm here now! And I have some good news; aside from a fresh chapter to Let it Snow this week, I also have the next chapter ready to go aaaand a Onde Anda Você chapter as well! So I'll have at least a couple active weeks now, lol

In this chapter, we get to see a little bit of Will and Nick's past! HERE it is.

Also, I've been thinking... Would you like me to release all chapters at the same time, but a while from now, or "weekly", as I write them? It's supposed to be a short story, so there aren't many more chapters to go. 

As always, let me know what you think!

LITT - Love in Troubled Times - Dani

 Hi Blog readers, 

So I posted the first chapter of my current WIP last week. Thanks to the few people who commented; it means a lot. 

I posted the second chapter today and realized it is so long. I almost made it into two parts. I hope that's okay. Just know, I'm still working on this story a lot, and due to its nature, topics, storyline, and taking place in another country, it has been keeping me very occupied for a long time, like probably about two years or so. The topic itself has been an interest of mine for many, many years. 

I've spent much time trying to put a story down that is as close to authenticity as possible. I'm trying to have a balance between explaining and not using terms that are too unfamiliar to you, my readers. I did add some footnotes, and unfortunately, you find them at the very bottom of the chapter, but they are there. If you have any other questions, please let me know. 

I know this story is different in a way, but then also still written in my "ways" and with types of characters that you are familiar with. I really hope you enjoy it, and I would love to know what you think, just to get an idea if what I'm doing here is not too weird. 

So, thank you for reading and giving me feedback. Again, this is still a work in progress and it's a challenge, but I hope it's still a story you enjoy. 

Here is 

Love In Troubled Times - Chapter 2

Hi after a long time

Hi there fiction blog readers,

it's been a long time. I'm still writing and working on stories and I just can't stop writing about disabled male protagonists 😉 and the women who adore them. 😍 To say the least, life has been a doozy for a while, lots of stuff going on in the world and I definitely think it has dramatically affected people. 

I'm almost finished with this story and have worked on it for at least two years if not longer. It's different from everything I've written and published so far. It also involves much research about certain historic events and political structures. My regular readers who enjoyed my other stories may be disappointed with this and if you are, I'm sorry this is so different. I promise I'll try to work on something more familiar once this story is done. I plan on self-publishing it hopefully in the spring and have other ideas in my head and some works in progress already. 

This story takes place in the early '80s, so between 1981 and 1982 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. From a young age, I've always had a fascination with Northern Ireland, not sure why that is, and have read a lot about it and all the things that happened there over the centuries. I've tried as much as possible to be truthful and correct in historic and landmark descriptions. You'll see that I'm using a slightly different dialogue between my characters, trying to stay true to how people there talk. I've also inserted some footnotes explaining some expressions you may not be familiar with. I've also tried to stay true to location descriptions like streets and landmarks.

This story is more than just a simple romance for devotees. I'm not sure what will come out of this story. I've been sitting over it for a long time and it has taken much of my energy. Somehow it was important to me to write this, I really don't know why. Again, it's different than what I've done so far, but I hope it's not too unusual and can maybe find its place in our sub-genre of romance involving disabled characters. 

So, I'm sorry if you are "weirded out" by it, but I hope some of you will still enjoy it. Let me know if you do. This first chapter is pretty long already. If there is enough interest, I may post another chapter in a week or two. I also hope I'm doing it right here, it's been so long since I posted here on the Blog.

Thank you to everyone who's been out there buying my novels on Amazon. You mean so much to me. Find me out there on Amazon and Instagram Dani Deveaux. 

Hugs, Dani

Happy new year! and also a let it snow update (heh)

I'm back! Took me a little longer because I was dealing with a lot during the holidays and couldn't reach my PC to post it. Happy New Year, you lovely people. I hope this year we can read lots of amazing stories here. 

In this chapter, Nick and Will have a very pleasant drive to their unnamed town (because I'm lazy).
