Avery - Hush Darling

Hey all. Avery here. This is the first time that I've ever posted on this blog, so I wanted to introduce myself. I write stories about wounded heroes, be it physically or emotionally. So if that's your jam, I've got you covered. 

Some of you may be familiar with my stories, others may not. I'm only going to be posting the first four chapters of this book as a sample. 

I'm not a huge fan of trigger warnings but due to domestic abuse, I feel it's necessary in this case: This material contains sensitive issues that may be disturbing for some readers. Certain scenes will portray detailed domestic abuse, physical violence, and intense, complex grief issues.

I'll be posting two chapters this week and two next week. 

My most recent book, Hush Darling (featuring a Deaf hero), is set to release on September 28th. 

So, without further ado, here are the first two chapters.

New Story : ' Enemy, Mine' - a sequel to 'The Tortured Billionaire'. Book 2 in the Billionaire series by S. Miller



          Hi there lovely people,



   I hope you enjoyed the snippet from "The Tortured Billioanire" I shared with you in my last post. 


   Some people were curious about the validity of the story and how much from what I had experienced in my own personal life had been included in the book.

   So I realized I have to make the following disclaimer: 

  For the purposes of keeping the identities of the characters involved in the first book private, I deliberately altered names, locations and some circumstances. 

  I had to do this as some friends were trying to discover the identities of the real people who I used to base the story on, and of course I wouldn't want to reveal those. However, I would like to say that most of the information included in the series comes from my own personal experience, and I will just leave it at that. 

Now , for the fun part. There is a sequel to the first book and I am happy to share part of it with you here :

This is a sequel to the first book, and Book 2 in the Billionaire series. If you enjoy the sample, you can find the whole book here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08HL9VNLQ


I will also be posting more from these two stories for those of you who enjoy it, every Monday on this blog. The way I write is similar to therapy, as it helps me battle my own demons. 

Here is the continuation to "The Tortured Billionaire" story: http://stories.paradevo.net/2020/07/the-tortured-billionaire-update.html

I am so grateful for you guys who are showing support and allowing me the platform to speak up and voice my thoughts and experiences. The writing helps me deal with what I have gone through in my past and is indeed like therapy. I would recommend anyone who has gone though abuse or trauma in their own life to keep a journal or something to record their experience. 


Until next time,


Sophie

Beta Readers Wanted

 Hi everyone! Devo Girl here again with yet another historical fiction novel featuring a sexy blind guy! Huge thanks to everyone who helped with beta reading my previous novel and to all the awesome readers who have already agreed to beta read this latest one. But I find it's best to get a lot of opinions as I'm revising. Also this time around, the novel is m-m and set in Japan so if any of you are fans of samurai movies, manga/anime or BL/yaoi, I'd love to have your feedback. Please email me at devogirlfromparadevo@gmail.com if you're interested.

Here's the blurb:

Flowers by Night

Japan, 1825. Edo is the largest city in the world, despite being wracked by frequent natural disasters, a city where people of every class find bawdy, thrilling entertainment of every kind. Love affairs between men are completely accepted, even among men married to women, but low-ranking samurai Uchida Tomonosuke has never pledged himself to another man. Until one day he accidentally crosses paths with a beautiful blind masseur who challenges everything he thought he knew. Ichi is a member of the Todoza, the guild of blind men, who are trained in massage and music. The Todoza taught Ichi how to be independent and self-sufficient, but he's still at the very lowest rungs of society. For the samurai and the masseur to be together, it will mean not only crossing class lines and negotiating Tomonosuke's unhappy wife, but also surviving earthquake, fire and famine. Theirs is a thoroughly unconventional love story that is based in rich historical detail.

Read on for the first chapter...

New Contributor, Sophie Miller - Introduction

 



       Hi there lovely people!


     I would like to introduce myself and to thank you all for having me on here. 


     My name is Sophie and this is my first attempt at writing devotee fiction. My story began when I arrived in England as a student . During my first year at university I met a guy who was a T12 paraplegic. He was the man who introduced me to disability and what it's like living a life with challenges. 

    Our love story was somewhat out of the ordinary and my first book I decided to write in memory of that particular chapter in my life. 


   We are no longer together but to say he left a significant mark on my life and future would be an understatement. 


   I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing and most of all - living it. 

  

  Here is a link to the first chapter of the book :

 Enjoy!


  With love,


  Sophie
