A Little Song Sharing Post


Listening to this daily. 🙂 Thought I’d share. What songs are helping you through this time? Please share in the comments!

Everyday Life

What in the world are we going to do?
Look at what everybody’s going through
What kind of world do you want it to be?
Am I the future or the history?
‘Cause everyone hurts
Everyone cries
Everyone tells each other all kinds of lies
Everyone falls
Everybody dreams and doubts
Got to keep dancing when the lights go out
How in the world I am going to see?
You as my brother
Not my enemy?
‘Cause everyone hurts
Everyone cries
Everyone sees the color in each other’s eyes
Everyone loves
Everybody gets their hearts ripped out
Got to keep dancing when the lights go out
Gonna keep dancing when the lights go out
Hold tight for everyday life
Hold tight for everyday life
At first light
Throw my arms out open wide

Free Origin Story From Kiki Burrelli!


Hi All! My friend, Kiki Burrelli, has a FREE short story! The description and links are below.

At seveneteen, Nolan has seen the brutality of his world. He’s an omega, which means he needs to stay out of trouble until some alpha finds him appealing enough to matter.

But Nolan is too defiant to attract most alphas and his physical appearance leaves some to be desired. At least, that is what he thinks until a childhood friend returns, showing Nolan how good life can be.

Please note: This is an Origin story to the main character in Shatter: Omega Assassins Club Book 4. This series takes place in a gritty, male-only, A/B/O world and as such contains possible triggers relating to domestic abuse, sexual offenses as well as kidnapping with the majority occurring off-page.

Book Release Day!

Dark, dirty, and sinfully arousing, this collection throws out the rulebook. It explores our most perverse urges through the naughtiest and deadliest of raw, carnal desires.

In the LUST stories, you’ll find that words have power and that there can be satisfaction in frustration.

The GLUTTONY stories show us that nothing succeeds like excess, and too much is never enough.

In a world where indulging our appetites is too often seen as a bad, selfish way to live, these stories offer delightfully wicked characters feasting unashamedly on pleasure. Devour these delicious tales of abandon and allow yourself to be inspired by characters who long to taste all that life and lust can offer, whether their focus is food, sex or a combination of the two.

These offerings are scandalizing and tasty.

Available in print and ebook!

Fly high, my friend

Now that it has been officially announced, my friend, John (J.A.) Pitts, passed away yesterday.

I am heartbroken.

Some of you may have known him for his Urban Fantasy series, some from conventions and workshops, but I first met him through a mutual friend. John has been a light in my life and so many others’ lives as well. He was kind, compassionate, and always lifted others up.

I’d written many things here (spent hours actually), all the ways in which John’s friendship helped me and changed my life for the better, but I’ve deleted it all. Because that is mine. John made a difference. He helped me when I was lost on more than one occasion. He taught me what being assertive meant, a lesson I’m forever grateful for. But that’s all I can share. The rest is too precious to me.

John, you were someone I trusted. And you know how hard that is for me. Thank you for being in my life. I will miss you, friend.

Review of We Know the Truth, Do You?

67259625_505011450263584_540889055103467064_n (1)

Book blurb:

What’s in Area 51? Is the government hiding aliens? Elvis? Maybe the set of the Apollo moon landing? Do you know? We do. Join this multi-genre group as they explore the hidden recesses of Area 51 which up until now have only been whispered conspiracies. Don’t bother with the raid. Stay home, read these awesome stories and learn all you need to know. The truth is just a page-flip away.


We Know the Truth, Do You? is a fun and witty anthology that benefits US veterans with each copy sold. This collection turns the standard ‘aliens in Area 51’ conspiracy on its head. Sure, there are aliens! But each author weaves a different tale of the secrets hidden within. With themes of dark twists, magical plots, psychic communications, raids, and sweet romantic encounters, this anthology holds something for everyone. I quite enjoyed the variety and imagination of these authors!

I hope to see lots of wonderful folks and adventure around Ireland! 🙂

Fandom and the LGBTQI+ community

Format: Panel
15 Aug 2019, Thursday 17:00 – 17:50, Wicklow Hall-1 (CCD)

There’s overlap between the LGBTQI+ community and fandom, and fandom spaces have been touted as a place for those who felt rejected from ‘normal’ society to come and get their weird on. But is that always the case? Our panel of queer fans will discuss their relationship to fandom, how it’s sometimes let them be more themselves than they can in other places… and sometimes not.

Censorship in SFF and Comics

Format: Panel
16 Aug 2019, Friday 17:00 – 17:50, Liffey Room-2 (CCD)

Our genre has long been subject to censorship and control (D&D, monster movies). This has led to suppression or trends towards “vanilla” (safe) content. How do we protect creative expression? How much should we hold to account companies that profit from characters dedicated to justice, inclusion, and diversity while pandering to consumers who are against all of that?

Roz Kaveney, Prof Dave Lewis (M), Sienna Saint-Cyr, Mikko Rauhala

Kaffeeklatsch: Sienna Saint-Cyr

Format: Kaffeeklatsch
18 Aug 2019, Sunday 17:00 – 17:50, Level 3 Foyer (KK/LB) (CCD)
