an important announcement!

Okay, everybody, I did it! I have a book! (An e-book, to be precise!) (And to be more precise, Karasu and I have a book!) It’s called The Emperor’s Mirror, and it’s a YA novel about magic! Mystery! Monks! Other things that don’t start with ‘m’, up to and including dragons! I would like to take a moment to shamelessly plug it and say if you enjoy reading my fanfiction, please go take a look! It’s the first in a series which is intended to be 5 books, the rest of which should be coming out in no time (metaphorically speaking) and the e-book is $4.99.

Here’s the back of the book (so to speak):

A valuable artifact has been stolen from an isolated monastery, and Tallis will have trouble finding it when the temple elder won't tell him what it is.

The monks have good reason to be secretive, given the centuries of religious persecution after the fall of the Emperor who represented their gods. That's to say nothing of the cult leader enchanting disciples in the next town over, or of the boy they keep hidden underground while they prepare him to be the new Emperor. Tallis, an orphan himself, feels an instant connection with Brannon, the young boy who can channel the power of the gods but is deeply resentful of the monks who have imprisoned him to keep him safe. Tallis soon finds himself struggling to unravel not only a theft, but the murder of the last Emperor, which fractured the world a thousand years before.

You can read the complete first chapter for free here if you’re so inclined, or if you don’t feel the need and you want to buy it sight-unseen, you can do so right here! (It should be available from Amazon/iBooks/etc shortly, but you can buy it direct from Lulu right now.)

Even if you can’t afford it/can’t buy things on the internet/don’t have an e-reader (this file works with most basic e-reader extensions for chrome and firefox)/et cetera, even just reblogging the post (and talking about how cool my stuff is) would be awesome. *blows kisses* Thanks for reading!
Okay, folks, I know I haven't been around, but I've done the birthday tally every year since 2006 and I figure I shouldn't skip a year just because I haven't been posting much.... the point is to see what I've accomplished, right?

So, since last year, I have posted...

Winding Worlds 14-15 (2)
In the Kingdom of the Blind 21-31 (11)
Grace is Gone 10-14 (5)
The First Stone 1-4 (4)

So uh.... 22 chapters. Yikes...

But uh.... 93 chapters of Teen Wolf fanfic?

......I think I'm going to go crawl under a rock now...
Reasons why I have not been posting lately:

1) Teen Wolf
2) Teen Wolf
3) Avengers/Iron Man 3
4) Teen Wolf
5) tumblr
6) Cymbalta (it doesn't ruin my creativity but it sure as hell wreaks havoc with my motivation to work on shit that I don't particularly care about)
7) Literary agent rejections
8) Teen Wolf, seriously, my AU 'verse over there is upwards of 300,000 words now and I'm NOT EVEN TRYING
9) The new FIG 'verse is currently at about 374,000, so I guess we just needed a break from it for a while.
10) Oh, those other fics? I really just have no idea what to do with them. Gotta be honest.
11) Teen Wolf

Sorry. I didn't mean for this hiatus to last so long. But I know from experience that forcing myself to work on stuff that I have absolutely zero interest in will only make it come out like crap. When season 3 of Teen Wolf starts airing and completely destroys everything I've done with my AU, I'll probably need a break from that, too. =D

BUT. I am okay. And if you want to keep up with my, visit my tumblr or my profile on AO3 and you can be assured that, even if I'm not working on the shit I should be working on, I am at least still alive and writing.

There's smut over there. Just sayin'.
Hey, so..... I don't want to clog up the ficlog with a glut of Stiles fanfic, but for all you Teen Wolf fans, posting my fic over at AO3!

Coming Undone

Rated: PG-13
Genre: Hurt/Comfort and some Mystery
Spoilers: All of season 1, and eventually most of season 2.
Warnings: Mostly for Stiles abuse. Also some profanity, Derek being Derek, and me experimenting with a new fandom.
Disclaimer: Do not own, will not profit, would lick it for hours.
In a word...: In the season 1 finale, when Peter opened the trunk of his car, before I saw the nurse inside I thought, "OMG, he's going to put Stiles in the trunk and leave him for dead somewhere!" He didn't.... so I did!

Three chapters are up so far, will be posting more in the coming days. ^_^

25 Days of Christmas: 2012

Returning, triumphant from 2008 and 2011, it's The 25 Days of Christmas Fics!

For the 25 days of December, leading up until Christmas, we will post a drabble every day! Requests are now open! This year's theme is questions. Ask me a question, ask a character a question, have one character ask another character a question. Here's how to play:

1) Anyone may request a fic. Lurkers are welcome. If you feel uncomfortable requesting as a lurker, anon!requests are fine. Last year anon was the rule, because it was kink meme style; this year I don't care.

2) Multiple requests are fine. Request as many as you want! Request one, think about it, and come back to request more! But...

3) Please post each request in a separate comment. Or else I will become woefully disorganized. Note that not all requests may be answered, depending on how many I get. I won't actually limit to 25 fics, but may not have time to answer all of them. The length of the fill will vary on how inspiring I find the request. =D

4) Please request in the following manner: Fandom/Original work of choice, character and/or pairing of choice, prompt. Prompts can be vague or specific. Warning: my attitude towards prompts will sometimes involve a lot of creative interpretation. If you want something specific, be specific.

5) Alll requests must be in by November 30th.
