Interview with The Indie View & preview of a WIP
A new interview I did went live this morning, and it's pretty exciting!
I’m in The Indie View!
Established in 2010, The Indie View is a place to discover new authors, as well as indie books, of course! An interview I did for them went live on their site this morning, and I’m really excited to share it.
You can read the interview here. If you want to help spread the word about it, please do ♥
I figured it was time to revisit the website I’d created a few years ago, and I’m really happy with where it’s at now. It was badly in need of an overhaul, so if you’re curious to see the new design (and a cool animated background), you can check that out here.
Preview of a work in progress
I went into hyperfocus mode over the last couple of weeks and wrote a new book in ten days. My back paid dearly for it, but I have no regrets. It’s a bit different from what I’ve written so far, so it was definitely an exciting experience to go outside my comfort zone.
It’s still in the early stages where drafts are concerned, but I wanted to share a little snippet. It’s best categorized as LGBTQ+ dark fantasy/horror/erotica. This thing is a beast, so I’ll leave you with an excerpt that’s appropriate for all eyes:
In a corner of the room was a series of counters and cabinets, and in the middle was a sink with a mirror above it. Silver avoided the reflective surface as they watched their feet, not ready yet to see the reality. The water was cold and didn’t have an option for warm, but it was good enough to wash the red down the drain. They rubbed their hands without soap well enough to finally come clean, and they realized they would have to look into the mirror to clean their face. As they glanced to the side, they noticed a stack of green cloths, the same institutional green as the blanket. Someone in charge really enjoyed the decorative charm of a hospital.
‘Just look up. How bad could it be? I don’t even remember my own face, so whatever I see will just be fine, right?’ Silver took a few shaky breaths. Their hands curled into fists on the white speckled countertop as they worked up the courage. ‘You’re dead, you dummy. What is there to be scared of? Your own reflection? Give me a break.’
Silver closed their eyes, took another preparatory breath, and with a racing heart, opened them again as they lifted their gaze to look into the mirror.
Something that felt like a painless blow to their head sent them reeling, and everything faded.
