Be sure you’ve read Book II of THE BURNINGSOUL SAGA!

Rorke Burningsoul, Wanderer of Weltyr, is dead.

Since Rorke Burningsoul escaped the Nightlands, his life has been adventure without rest. Why should he be surprised when the airship set to whisk him and his four lovely companions to Rhineland is boarded by the all-female pirate crew of the legendary ship, the Flying Rhinemaid? There’s no such thing as a cruise in the world of Urd—there’s only peril, and the will to overcome it. As the chaos in the air takes turns no one could expect, and certain shattering truths come to light, Rorke must struggle to stay focused on the task of reclaiming the Ring of Roserpine…especially when he’s forced to confront the truth of what happened to him upon the airship.

But that is not the only truth he is forced to confront. Stranded, Rorke and two of his lovely companions must brace themselves for a series of encounters they never expected to endure: starting with the mysterious Deep-Children, who beg that Rorke return the sacred gold stolen from their mother’s home. Normally, such a task would be his pleasure. But when the thief turns out to have been Weltyr, himself, well…

That makes things a little more complicated.

HELP ME HELP UKRAINIAN WOMEN AND CHILDREN.

Starting on this International Women’s Day and running through April 8th, you can purchase KHERSON, the spiritual successor of CLEARED AWAY, from my website for $2.99. WHILE THIS EDITION IS AVAILABLE, ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO THE ORGANIZATION “UN WOMEN” to help provide support to Ukrainian women and children struggling to survive the invasion of their country.

The city of Kherson has fallen into devastation with the occupation of Russian forces. Grocery store shelves are bare, money is no good, and women have been urged to stay at home for their own protection. As the war intensifies these conditions are not likely to improve anytime soon, and humanitarian organizations attempting to help the civilians of Ukraine will need as much support as they can receive. KHERSON has been written not just as a piece responding to the controversy around CLEARED AWAY, but as a means of spreading awareness of the very real, very present threat being faced by human beings trapped in their city due to a war they didn’t ask for—especially the threat being faced by female human beings.

If you do not read the story, please instead consider donating directly to UN WOMEN, Razom, ICRC, Urgent Action For Women’s Human Rights, or Fundacja Ocalenie.

FAQ: Why not Godless?

After the dust-up over CLEARED AWAY, I don’t want to force somebody else to deal with any potential controversy this short book might kick up. Additionally, due to the ongoing nature of the invasion of Ukraine, the more immediately funds can be provided to charities, the more impact they will have. With payments flowing in through Paypal right away, the money can be donated on a weekly basis. Keep tabs on the total on the book’s page on my website! It will be updated daily until the book’s run has ended.

FAQ: Isn’t this like setting up a lemonade stand for cancer?

It’s better than nothing. Since I can’t donate out-of-pocket, a fundraiser is the next best option.

FAQ: Is this exploitative?

War and rape are exploitative. This is a piece of fiction.

FAQ: I’m offended. How can I complain?

By donating to one of the above charities and sending me the receipt.

Melba Daniels has been receiving telepathic messages from movie star Rex Virgil for years. Why is it only now that he’s invited her to meet him in person again? Well…she hasn’t been taking her drugs, for one, (don’t tell her probation officer that, now), which makes his messages come through loud and clear.

But avoiding her meds means she’ll be seeing a whole hell of a lot more of the Gray Man. Turns out the faceless entity is the real reason Rex has picked now to elope with his long-distance disciple: tonight is the night. The night to shake loose of its clutches. All Melba’s got to do is offer up three sacrifices, and just like that, she’s free of her torment for good.

Now she’s just gotta make damn sure that her cousin, Becky June, ain’t meant to be one of the dead.

hello i love splatterpunk comedy inspired by the addams family and calvin & hobbes

You thought I forgot about you, didn’t you, blog? Don’t worry, I’m just negligent! But this new release is so exciting I’ve got to make sure everybody sees it. My first-ever standalone splatterpunk novel is out today, available wherever books are sold in paperback as well as ebook.

Ever wonder what would happen if Wednesday Addams met Calvin & Hobbes on a science museum field trip where they found the disgruntled janitor’s guns? I did! Meet Miranda Even and Luther & Paine. Smokeland will never be the same.

GET IT ON AMAZON – OR WHEREVER YOU BUY YOUR BOOKS!

Scientific progress goes splat!

Luther Watson is an anxious boy. His best friend, Paine, assures him that he has no reason to be, but what could Paine know of anxiety? No bipedal wolf capable of disguising itself as a stuffed animal has anything to worry about…especially when the only person who can see him is Luther.

That is, until a field trip to the Smokeland Science Museum introduces him to Miranda Even, the disturbing daughter of an eccentric family of Smokeland locals. Her morbid interest in all the parts of life most others try to ignore soon have the new friends embroiled in a scheme to determine just why, exactly, the science museum’s old janitor was so freaked out to be fired without having a chance to clean his office…and as the answer turns out to be far more dangerous than expected, chaos overtakes the science museum, people will die, and–oh, yeah.

A woman-eating wolf is on the loose.

Welcome to Smokeland.

This splatterific romp is meant to be fun and funny as well as horrifying, so if dead kids can’t make you laugh under any circumstances, I wouldn’t read this if I were you.

Is anybody really an angel in a world like this?

Vic’s got a lot of learning to do: it’s a good thing he’s surrounded by so many beautiful women falling all over themselves to help him. After discovering the cute neighbor across the street is actually his human vessel’s guardian angel, the displaced demon lord is twice as devoted to breaking the seals keeping him trapped in a boring corporate job…even if he has to fight every lying celestial slave he meets in order to do it.

But maybe not all angels are so bad. Raphael, the head of Helcom’s sales department, is as up-front about his angelic nature as he is tired of his lot in life. More than willing to look the other way while Vic gets intimate with the latest (cat-eared) addition to his harem, Vic’s new boss quickly proves that the morality of angels is not dictated by the will of Heaven.

And that even an angel in league with infernal spirits can’t be trusted by a demon lord.

This light novel harem series is zesty, and contains many intimate scenes between the main character and the beautiful women around him. Reader discretion is strongly advised.

hello i hate the milquetoastification of indie fiction

…and you should, too.

Reader, reader. What have we here? A blog post? This must really be something special. Regina rarely posts actual blog entries, and even more rarely starts a post on her site with ‘i hate’ instead of ‘i love.’ Yet, this where we find ourselves. I just need to vent a little: moreover, I need to implore you, reader, to think about what I am writing here, because I mean it sincerely.

I woke up this morning to find another horror author, whose pen name and work shall not be named, had a year-old book blocked an Amazon–an action that most likely occurred because somebody complained about it. A horror book. In the horror category. By a known author of extreme horror.

This is really sticking in my craw because I had a similar situation earlier in the month concerning a book published on the website Godless.com, which is meant specifically for horrific, shocking, boundary-pushing horror fiction that can (or should) not be published anywhere else. Unbeknownst to me, somebody I know–and at that point respected–went behind my back to the site creator to complain the piece, a 4500 word piece of shock horror comparable to many other pieces on the site. Is it the best piece I’ve ever written in my life? Of course not, I wrote it in an afternoon to be shocking and depraved, and to make readers question why they read this sort of fiction. But I stand by the piece, and the emotional reaction it evidently triggered in this person indicates to me that the piece is successful.

That being said, I have been affected for almost a month by this ridiculous scenario. I feel censorious eyes peering over my keyboard and into my mind as I try to think of something to write, and for the past weeks just a bit of my joy has been sapped from me whenever I do make it to the keyboard. This is the real goal the person had by first going to the Godless.com creator, then by sending me a personal message that amounted to a drive-by when they refused to reply. The person was offended and upset by the work, and when someone is upset, they want to upset the person who upset them. The motive for demanding another person remove a piece of art from circulation, whatever the quality, can only be a malicious one.

There are people out there who want writers to suck. I don’t mean just vindictive book bloggers, either. There are writers who want other writers to suck. There are people who have nothing to do with the world of publishing, who haven’t read a book since high school (or maybe haven’t graduated it) who want writers to suck. This latter group is made of people who pile-on to a situation on Twitter or Facebook so they can enjoy criticizing a content creator for a work they know nothing about. As for the rest, the frustrated writers who take pleasure in trashing the works of other writers, this is a truly lowly sort upon whom I’ll waste little time other than to say they are doomed to evolve into vindictive book bloggers, their works unread by the community that has long-since seen them for what they are.

But why would anyone want another person’s work to suck, Regina? Surely you’re looking at this the wrong way. These good, wholesome, neighborly souls are only concerned. They want to keep readers from reading “bad” books, so they leave informative 1-star reviews everywhere they possibly can. They want to keep writers from publishing (or preferably from writing at all) “bad” books, so they complain to Amazon and other platforms in the name of having the books taken down–thus, also, protecting these poor, helpless readers from the bad, bad fiction that offended the tattle-tale.

These are their stated goals, I will give you that. But, reader, this sort of person who can’t leave well enough alone actually has another goal seated in their heart of hearts. No matter what they tell themselves, the type of person who complains about a book is doing so for self-motivated reasons. If outside of the publishing/reading industry, they tend to be jealous of success in general and simply enjoy the schadenfreude that comes from latching onto a good public witch hunt. If they are a reader, then it is because they were so offended by the book that they want to hurt the author in their turn. And if they proclaim to be a fellow writer, then they can have one goal and one goal only: to rein in their competition until one of them sings a swansong and quits publishing altogether…or at least publishing in their genre.

Some writers believe that, rather than writing to the market, the market should conform to their tastes–and that other writers, for not doing the same, are wrong or in some way lacking in quality. For these authors, the only possibility they have of success, so far as they can see, is proving to readers that their taste is “wrong.” They write long reviews of other authors’ works that belittle the piece as much as possible before ending in snide urgings like, “But hey, if writing is your passion, keep doing it!” They critique in-progress works shared in confidence in such a way as to hamper their final form, rather than helping hone them to success. Most vilely, they report books to the platforms on which they’re published so that even extreme horror fiction properly categorized has no chance to remain for sale. To play it safe, deplatformed writers may end up writing milder things.

And that is exactly what these petty agitators want. They do not want to see boundaries pushed and authors inspired by one another. They do not want to look evil in the face or think that someone may disagree with them. They do not want to see others successful when their own books can’t seem to get past a handful of reviews and a couple of sales a month. They want only their own immediate success, and they just cannot understand why shitting on others won’t make it come any faster.

I am writing this entry today to urge you, reader, to never be like these people. Love fellow writers. Support them. Encourage them even if you don’t personally enjoy their work. Celebrate their successes, because one day they’re going to celebrate yours. Don’t be mediocre, and don’t let anyone tell you that you should be. When people are upset about your art, upset them more.

And if you’re a reader only? As Shirley Jackson once said to a rude critic, “If you don’t like my peaches, don’t shake my tree.” Let extreme horror grow in its profane groves of eyeball bushes and vaginal trees. It’s not doing anyone any real harm, and if you think that you’re worried it is, well…stop and ask yourself if that’s really the problem you have with it.

FAMILIARITY – AVAILABLE 4/30/21

God understands that sometimes people need to die.

Libertine abortionist Dr. Hammond Harteveldt bears a charmed life, though most might not feel that way. After all, his former brother-in-law was recently found dead in his prison cell while awaiting charges related to some very sordid sex crimes, and the retired widower has subsequently come into custody of his deeply troubled goddaughter. Most men of recreation such as Hammond would surely see sudden custody of a dependent as a chore, but not Hammond.

Far from it: Theresa’s presence in the home is an opportunity. He has not seen the girl in years–not since a falling out with her father–and the truth is that although the circumstances of her arrival were less than fortunate, she’s already brought so many good things into his life. There’s the alluring and naive Grace Primrose, young Theresa’s fetching high school librarian caught in a dead-end, humdrum marriage. She could certainly use a helping hand, couldn’t she? Then there’s poor Isaac Redfern, the FBI agent responsible for Theresa’s case who seems as if he’s hovering on the verge of a nervous breakdown–increasingly paranoid about cults and psychological terrorism.

But then, of course, there is Theresa herself. Theresa, ah, Theresa–Theresa, who will be eighteen on Walpurgisnacht.

And by Satan, Dr. Harteveldt is smitten with all three of them.

hello i love epic fantasy harem novels inspired by richard wagner: BURNINGSOUL BOOK II out April 9th

Be sure you’ve read Book I of THE BURNINGSOUL SAGA! Nearly a hundred reviews on Amazon and a 4.4 average. Trust me, reader…this isn’t your average harem series.

Rorke Burningsoul is free. Free, and able to pursue the adventurers who left him for dead in the harrowing realm of the Nightlands: and when one of those treacherous adventurers falls right into his lap, all he can do is praise Weltyr and make use of his good fortune. When the paladin learns that the dwarf, Grimalkin, may have taken the Scepter of Weltyr for himself back to the dwarven nation, Rorke manages to convince his beautiful durrow companions to come on this retrieval mission–not just for his own purposes, but to increase their odds of successfully retrieving Valeria’s sacred ring.

Not everyone is on board, though. High elf druid Branwen, freshly rescued from the den of misshapen bandits, has some designs of her own…and though Rorke is devoted to assisting his former mistress, Branwen seduced him once before. She’s confident she can do it again.

But when a sensual wild witch from the mountains outside the Nightlands claims she knows the secrets of his heritage, Branwen will have to learn to play nice with the rest of Rorke’s harem if she wants to keep him from being spirited away.

Mature readers only! This fantasy harem adventure in the style of Dungeons & Dragons contains explicit encounters between the lucky hero and many gorgeous women he encounters on his quest. Use discretion when purchasing.

hello i’m hard at work

THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE BURNINGSOUL SAGA.

CLICK HERE TO READ BOOK I!

wow a real blog post.

okay first of all, thank you everybody who made bloom & dark: book i of the burningsoul saga such a smash hit. for a new series to hit #17 in dark fantasy and garner 36 amazon unsolicited amazon reviews in its first 2 weeks on the market is exceedingly great, and i am so amazed and touched to see it happen to me. what does this mean?

i am hard at work on burningsoul book ii, waaaaaaaay ahead of schedule. but i also have certain pre-existing obligations, including but not limited to

  • the Valentine’s Day release of DOTTIE FOR YOU Season One in paperback
  • a certain contract job not yet to be named (woo mysterious hype noises)
  • editing familiarity, finally, a task i have been trying to get to since Q2 2020
  • editing tale of rho book 4
  • DOTTIE FOR YOU Season 2
  • the first SEDUCED BY SABINE collection, as well as the paperback of BE MY BULLY

and that’s just what i know about. i will be honest with you guys and warn you now that because of burningsoul book ii, everything after the contract may get pushed back by a month or so from its current projected timeframe…however, i can assure you the results will be worth it. i am really enjoying writing this series, and really loving the influence had upon it by both the ring cycle and, specifically, parsifal. it is a great experience not just to write, but to see so many people still reading book one! if you haven’t checked it out yet, please be sure to give it a read.

finally, as i pass 100 subscribers on my mailing list, i just want to say–thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making my work a success. i am so happy and so proud to see the back catalogue i have managed to create in a mere nine months, and am so excited to see where things go from here. fair warning: until now, i have published stories weekly, and i still want to publish my work as quickly as possible–certainly several times a month. however, to write you longer and better stories, i need more time to focus. therefore, moving forward, don’t be surprised if a week or two sometimes passes without a new publication. it just means i am hard at work bringing you more stories to love!

anyway, thank you again, everyone, for reading my writing and being so kind about my work! i love you all and look forward to writing more great stories for you, erotica and otherwise!

hello i love semi-erotic dungeons & dragons-style homages to the ring cycle

…And ending a book’s first day on the market in the TOP 50 of dark fantasy, as well as the TOP 100 swords & sorcery titles. THANK YOU, READERS.

Specifically…thank you harem fantasy novel readers from a certain Facebook group. I think this is an important lesson for everyone. Namely, someone posted a thread in this group–innocently wanting to know more about me, since this is my first time working in the genre of harem fantasy. Well! Let’s just say the thread got a little spicy, and there were quite a few doubting Thomases in the audience.

But now there are already quite a few unsolicited 5-Star reviews, and these from people who were in that thread. I’m so proud to have won some readers over already on day one, and so happy to be going to bed with Book I of THE BURNINGSOUL SAGA sitting at #45 in dark fantasy and #64 in swords & sorcery fiction…and #51 in dark horror, maybe because of the whole thing with Rorke Burningsoul, Paladin of Weltyr, consenting to become the pleasure-slave to a race of hot dark elves. But what’s so horrible about that?

Now I’m excited to see how much higher the book can get…and excited to know that I’ve already set to work outlining the trilogy’s second book. If we can just get Book I to 50 reviews, I’ll be confident we can release it to even greater acclaim!

READ BOOK I OF THE BURNINGSOUL SAGA, BLOOM & DARK

Rorke Burningsoul, Paladin of Weltyr, has been betrayed.

With the object of his most recent quest stolen out from under him, Rorke has been left for dead in the treacherous Nightlands: a place hateful to all surface-dwellers, full of things the human–even the elfin–eye has never seen. Gray-faced berich dwarves, frightful half-spider misshapens–and, of course, the sensual and dark-complexioned durrow elves, a race of power-hungry women who live in service to the goddess Roserpine.

Praise Weltyr, Rorke is rescued by two such splendid durrow–and told that, in exchange for his life, he must now submit to slavery as, among other things, breeding stud to the female race. He willingly agrees, hopeful that his obedience will help him find a way out of the Nightlands and back to the business of retrieving the lost artifact: but when the Materna of the durrow city decides during his appraisal that she needs a new guard, he is soon surprised to find himself taken, heart and soul, by the exquisite durrow high priestess known as Valeria.

But Valeria’s need of a personal guard is not just some ruse to keep her new slave in her bedroom without controversy–would that it were. The high priestess’s life is at stake, and as her assassins’ attacks grow more frequent all the time, she needs the assistance of a man capable of keeping himself alive along with her.

Who better than a paladin she’s seen in dreams for decades?
