August Vallory had it all. A modeling career, a man he loved, and the extended family he’d acquired in the business. Then the world he knew was torn away when the plane he was on crashed en route to a photo shoot.

Lost in the Alaskan wilderness, August doesn’t stand a chance.

No sane man would choose to live in the Alaskan bush unless he had something to hide. And Keegan Brooks has secrets darker than night, more dangerous than wolves, more brutal than an Alaskan winter.

Every day was a fight for his life until he stumbled upon a downed plane with a lone survivor. Now it’s no longer just Keegan’s life teetering on the edge of survival.

It’s his heart.

New Release from SJ Himes - Mastering the Flames

Congrats to SJ Himes on the release of 
Mastering the Flames.
Check out that hot cover!

Mastering the Flames (The Beacon Hill Sorcerer Book 4)
by SJ Himes
Kellie Dennis (Illustrator)
October 4, 2019
Guilt-ridden after the massacre of his family, Isaac Salvatore turned to binge drinking to escape the pain. Now twenty-four years old, Isaac is a recovering alcoholic woefully out of practice in the magical arts, leaving his fire affinity hanging on the edge of disaster. After a month of rehab, he returns to Beacon Hill and his family, determined to remain sober, learn to control his magic, and figure out a plan for his life that doesn't involve drinking.

Constantine Batiste is the oldest, most powerful vampire in the city. Born in ancient Gaul, the bastard son of a Celtic king, his long life has been shrouded in tragedy and horrors. Recent mistakes have left him wary and determined to guard his clan from all foes. When two of his clan members fall victim to an ancient evil, he summons the Necromancer of Boston for aid. Accompanying his older brother to the Tower is the handsome young fire mage once wounded by Constantine's arrogance, and their encounter reignites an attraction that burns within both Constantine and Isaac.

The answer to who is targeting the vampires of Boston is buried in the dark, early days of Constantine's transition to an immortal life. Isaac finds himself saddled with a painful insight into the evil cutting a swath through the supernatural population of Boston. While his brother, Angel, takes over the hunt to find and stop the threat to the city, Isaac struggles to find a balance between helping his brother and finding his own purpose and place in the world, free from his brother's shadow.

Falling in love wasn't part of his plan, but mastering the flames that burn between him and Constantine soon becomes the most important thing in his life, even as an ancient evil seeks to destroy them.

Mastering the Flames is the fourth book in The Beacon Hill Sorcerer series and is not a standalone. The series should be read in order for maximum enjoyment and understanding of the plot and characters.

My name is Sheena, and I have more pen names than I probably should. I write as SJ Himes, Revella Hawthorne, and Sheena Himes. I reside in the mountains of Maine (closer to Canada than I am to fresh lobster) on a 300-year-old farm beside a river in the woods.
My companions are my furbabies: Micah, my large dog who hates birds; and Wolf and Silfur, two cats who love me but hate each other. I write romances with an emphasis on plot and character development, and almost all my characters are LGBTQ+ and that’s on purpose.

Bitter Sweet (Book 1): A Doxie Diaries Tale Paperback

Paperback: 25 pages
Jinx is a young god trying to survive the economic collapse that has altered the modern world. His gift, his genetic advantage, is what separates him from the average human. While his talents give him a survivor's edge, immortality can only be guaranteed by the nectar of the ambrosia flower. Ira is a Doxie, a young man born with the ability to produce ambrosia nectar once he consumes the flower. Like any Doxie, he wants nothing more than to serve the gods, and give them the ambrosia that makes them immortal. And if he's really lucky, he will be loved by the god who eventually claims him.

Georgia born and bred, I am an artist, a writer, and a general pain in the ass.

I spend most of my days working on my next book or designing cover art for other writers. For stress relief, I do Olympic lifting and occasionally run (but hate it). I have been in love with writing since I was very young but it wasn't until recently that I decided to pursue it as a profession.

I have experimented in several genres and found that since I identify as male, male romance has been the most comfortable for me to write. I don't discriminate in my books. All characters are fair game. I do, however, prefer a happy ending at some level.

I don't write the standard romance book. Some might even argue that what I write isn't romance at all. Personally, I think of them as love stories, where even in a fantastical world, there are realistic outcomes to the obstacles the characters face.

Chimera: Bound Gods Book 1 French Translation released

Bound Gods #1: The Chimera was released in French! If you have French-speaking friends let them know and ask them to please leave a review there.

Yes! This is a different cover. I am slowly updating some of the Bound Gods covers so they match better. This cover will also replace the English version.


Kaleb Holten’s father’s debt to an* underground group The Association has just been called in, and the man can’t pay the loan. Instead of turning over his wealth, he releases his son and Kaleb finds himself thrown into a world where a class of men see themselves as untouchable. Going so far as to call themselves gods.

After the Great Economic Collapse, there are no laws that cannot be broken. And Kaleb is forced into a ten-year sentence of servitude where he will have no say, no rights, no value and yet be coveted and protected as if he were a priceless treasure.

Leo Roan, has slipped the noose the Association bound him with by breaking his addiction to ambrosia and Kaleb Holten was supposed to be his last assignment as a doxie Master. But something about the boy begins weaving a new net that will not only ensnare him but the conscious darkness inside, that craves pain, agony, suffering, and death.

Adrienne Wilder's hobby...corals

MinionS: Hey, here is a video and some pics of Adrienne's coral tank. He's a real nerd about corals so if you got questions or just want to talk about corals he'd love to hear from you!

Update on writing projects

MinionS here. I finally cornered Adrienne and made him give me an update on what he's writing.

Sicari: This is the next book that will release. Adrienne is currently doing the first round of self-edits. I'm looking forward to meeting Marcel, Jacob, Ben, and Sam. Fun fact. Adrienne has been working on this book off and on for four years! Marcel is the most challenging character he has written because he is a sociopath.

Sins of the Father: We refer to this as the "Priest" book. It is about 30% done and has gone through many changes, but I think Adrienne has settled on how this story will go. Dorian is the priest and Aiden is deaf. Writing Aiden has been a challenge for Adrienne because it is hard to show not tell when someone is deaf. But he likes a challenge.

Nox 2: This is about 10% done. The important thing is the plot/mythos has been worked out. So when he starts working on this more it should write quickly.

Sacrifice (Bound Gods 11 and 12): This is the final book (will be divided into two books) in the current Bound Gods arc. This is where lots of gods, doxies, and people will die. Who? *evil laughter* Wouldn't you like to know...me too. Adrienne has told me very little. I don't think he knows who is going to die yet. Book 11 is about 50% done and Book 12 is about 70% done.

Darkest Night: Jeff's story is about 70% done.

Bitter Sweet: the yaoi-style webcomic drama Bound Gods spin-off. It is about a godling named Jinx and a doxie named Ira. There are 42 pages up on Patreon. The comic has started posting on webtoons for free. One page a week.

Chimera Kittens: A funny and smutty comic about Leo and Kaleb. There are 20 pages on Patreon. You can see censored pages at the $1 level. At the end of the comic, all patrons will get an uncensored PDF of the whole thing. 
There is also a finished webcomic called Chimera Christmas. Funny and smutty. Who knew the Chimera could do THAT with its tongue...

The audiobook of Nox is out. Kirt Graves is the narrator and does an excellent job!

The print copies of Pandora's Heart have been ordered for patrons at the $7 and up level. There will also be some other goodies coming with them.

Adrienne loves corals. Here is his tank: This is an old picture. He is cleaning and adding to it. I'll post a pic once it's done.

And no post would be complete without a pic of Adrienne's puppy Cinder. She has gotten so big! You can see videos of her in Adrienne's Darkside of the Rainbow FB group along with my new puppy Winter. You can see Finn and Pello's feet too!

I think I covered everything... Adrienne is still suffering from sinus trouble. He's got a new antibiotic so hopefully, he'll feel better soon. If you have any questions, you can ask in the comments or in the FB group. Adrienne will answer...but not about who will die in Sacrifice! *evil laugh*
