Cover Reveal: Bound Gods: Pandora’s Heart Book #10 By Adrienne Wilder

Cover artist: Adrienne Wilder
Bound Gods: Pandora’s Heart Book #10
By Adrienne Wilder
Release: Late spring 2019
Her Highest Honor has one last chance to save her son.

A creature who could rain destruction down on the world.

A beast all gods fear.

A Titan.

And all she needs is a god who is not a god.

A god who loves as a Doxie.

A god with a heart of fire.

It's the kind of story legends are made from.

There's only one problem.

It's all a lie.

This series is best enjoyed when read in order. Grab Bound Gods: The Chimera Book #1 https://amzn.to/2PQPuwT

The Bound Gods Series
Throughout history, there have been people who have survived the impossible.

Individuals with abilities that border on the paranormal. People who see themselves as untouchable. Going so far as to call themselves gods.

To gain immortality, they consume ambrosia.

But the older the god, the more ambrosia they need.

And no god can stop taking it once they've had it on their tongue.

In order to meet their need, they must use the bodies of young men, Doxies, who

are born with the ability to produce the nectar once they take the flower.

A honey made richer with pain and fear.

Doxies have no rights.

But they are not slaves. 

They are objects to be owned.

They are guarded, protected. 

They are the god's greatest treasure.

About the Author:
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 plushie interest?

Okay, gang (I also posted this over in my FB group)

I think I found a manufacturer that's willing to do smaller samples. I'll probably have to do a partial Kickstarter to prepay for the items so that I will have less out of pocket costs. I am going to get together a prototype with the correct fabric and colors to make it easier on them to get it right.

If I do a kick starter cost per item will be 25.00. If you buy two, 20.00 each.
Shipping not included, but I may be able to do a fixed amount if they will fit in a flat rate box or envelope. They will be squishy so it's possible. :)

20.00 is literal at cost plus shipping to me.

If you wait till after the Kickstarter they will be 30.00 each.
For those unfamiliar with Kickstarter, you do not give up any money unless I reach the desired goal.

Let me know who's interested so I can see if it's worth setting up.

Thank you :)

What's Adrienne doing now? Naughty man garden, turning fans into Doxies

This is MinionS. If you aren't part of the Adrienne's Darkside of the Rainbow Facebook group you might have missed some updates.

Adrienne and I were driving back from lunch and started talking about...alien man parts and possibilities which led to talk about flowers which led to this... Adrienne sketched out 12 flowers for his garden (uncensored versions on pateron). 

They will be colored and detailed a bit more and may be made into a calendar for anyone over 18 to buy. I tried to censor one set of them enough to post here...you can see the uncensored version of these four in the FB group though :)

Flowers that grow in a Man Garden...
Pansy Penis 
Forget-Me-Not Phallus 
Daffodil Dick 
Pansy Prick 
and many more!
Check them out on Patreon and suggest your own garden delight creation 

Adrienne is still working on the next two Bound Gods books. His unusual shifter book which had been in development for about two years, NoX, is moving along quickly now and might be out in December (don't hold him to this!).

He is still working on Jeff's story too. Adrienne's brain controls which book he works on and doesn't consult with him about it. So there are multiple books being written at the same time and he jumps between them.

He has been experimenting with digital painting and turning fans into Doxies! 
This is mm author E.M. Denning/Doxie. 


Think that's it for now. If you have a question about anything feel free to ask! Adrienne will respond as long as it isn't a spoiler ;)

Trio of love

MinionS here. Adrienne just sent me this pic of his dogs. So I thought I'd share. This is Tri-baby (Chinese Chin), Pello (Rottie), and Fin (Standard Poodle)

Tuesday, October 2, 2018

Taking your dog to the pet toy store...

This is MinionS here. Whenever Adrienne has to go to the pet store, Pello gets to pick out his own toy. It is so freaking cute so I got a video of it.

Here he is with his new favorite squeaky!

WILD is on Sale or $.99

WILD is only $.99 right now. I'm not sure how long the deal will last, but the holiday sequel 63 Days Later is free for only four more days. Please share!

WILD ($.99)http://amzn.to/2wYcnpc

63 Days Later: A Holiday Tail (free)http://amzn.to/2iaJpJz

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.


It’s been almost two years since Keegan and August escaped the Alaskan wilderness, and they finally get to celebrate their very first Christmas together.

But their plans for peace and quiet get turned upside down when Santa leaves more than just presents under the tree.

This will be a stand-alone story, so if you haven't read WILD yet (and why haven't you!?) you can still enjoy this little slice of life with Keegan, August, and Daisy.

Cute Doxie comic: The Gathering Invitations - pages 1-3

Okay, I've decided to do a really silly comic at the request of my minionS. It's just meant to be fun so the art isn't great but...
Hopefully, you'll get the jest of the fun idea. ;)

Here are the first three pages ;) The last six
 pages of the comic strip are already up on Patreon. Those who are not signed up, don't worry, I'll post them in my new FB group (Adrienne's Darkside of the Rainbow) and here in a couple of weeks.

I've got a FB group now

I was informed I needed a group. Now (after much kicking and screaming, whining about names and getting bribed with chocolate) I have a group. Here you can get tid-bits and news and all the silly things I'm supposed to do. I'll post excerpts, bad art, terrible jokes, cat pictures, dragon pictures, and pregnant doxies..... I got you at the pregnant doxie, didn't I? Anyhow, if you like dark stories, naughty stories, raunchy sex, explosive love (but no exploding cocks), dark themes, violence, passion, (did I mention violence) and all things dark and dangerous, then please feel to join.

Dear Starbucks: The former Quiet Room, now known as the Chamber of Where Happiness Went to DIE.

I meet with a critique group every Saturday and a writers group every Sunday at a Starbucks nearby. There is a large and comfy quiet room. Recently, Starbucks remodeled the quiet room...we are not happy

Your Honorable patrons would like to enter exhibit A @Starbucks
A: 3.5 foot Sacrificial Altar.
B: Chair of death with the backrest of LIES
C: Frisbee on legs? For what? Too small to put a lap top on, too short to use as a decent drink rest. My theory is it's a landing pad for crows who arrive to carry away the souls of the dead.
D: Even George Jetson would be disappointed.
E: A bench so low to the ground that it can only be the presentation slab for the most recent victim of the chairs of death. I mean, the landing pads are right there for convince, what else could it be? It's like 14 inches off the ground.
F: FOR FAIL--Handicap marker at 3.5 foot high table!
G: A plug, for what? There are plugs on the tables. And since you eradicated all the tables and chairs that used to line that wall why the hell are there plugs? Is this a joke. Are you laughing at us by forcing us to relive daily what we had and you STOLE!
H: Plugs and USB conveniently placed under the table at every chair of death that no one could possibly find comfortable for more than 30 min and even then they'd have to be shooting novocaine into their thighs.
I: Puddle of dying light because there is no winning against the darkness befallen this room. Even the sunlight, during the brightest part of the day, fails to lift the repressive atmosphere of gloom and doom.
J: Tiny lights so not to discourage the demons of despair from crawling out of the shadows to suck out your soul.

Your Honorable patrons would like to enter exhibit B @Starbucks
A: The giant Elephant butt plug, weebles wobbles, wooden chicken egg.
B: Cartoon chair that the seat is actually lower than that elephant butt plug.
C: Bench/table that's the same height as the item B.
D: An ottoman. A fucking ottoman. I. Have. No. Words.
E: Another landing pad for the crows
F: Look carefully. This patron as to PUSH OUT THE CHAIR ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DAMN TABLE TO ACTUALLY GET CLOSE ENOUGH TO USE IT. And those chairs are also uncomfortably high that you have to sit on the edge.
G: Another desperate patron trying their best to make good of the ottomans as chairs, the crow landing pads, and the table/bench dead body holder? This place used to be packed. And I mean PACKED...and now? no one wants to stay here. People came in took one look, burst into tears, and fled for their lives.
Fail Starbucks
EPIC FAIL

Bound Gods graphic novel update

I have had a time trying to find an artist for the Bound Gods graphic novel. I have an excellent artist, Inochihime, for my Doxie Diaries: Jinx and Ira: Bitter Sweet, but I wanted a different style for Bound Gods. So, for now, I am going to do the comic pages.

The first four pages are up on Pateron. They are intro pages giving the reader a taste of what the world is like after the Collapse. Here is part of page four. Whose car is that leaving the protected area? Where are they going? If you've read Bound Gods Book One: Chimera then you know!

Page four of Jinx and Ira: Bitter Sweet is up (it seven panels long). Jinx has broken into someone's apartment...he's in for a surprise!

Here is a breakdown of my Patreon tiers and what you can get:
Ouium
$1 or more per month
Ouiums are the often unappreciated mortal caretakers in the Bound Gods world. But they are exceedingly important, because the little things they do keep everything going. 
***Early Access and Full Access--Doxie Diaries, Written works.
Some racy art from the Bound Gods graphic novel. After four weeks you will receive access to the Bound Gods scripted version including NSFW content.
***PDF of any trading card or book mark (you can print these as you choose).
Loyalist
$3 or more per month
Loyalist are the first line of defense for the god they pledge to. They are his eyes, ears, and often the defender of their homes. Thanks to Loyalists, gods are able to keep tabs on the world without exposure via the information that Loyalists bring to him.
***Immediate access: Everything on the 1.00 tier, 
 *Scripted* Bound Gods comic including NSFW content.

Trading card 6x per year
God

***Sketches/toss out scenes.

***All above tier rewards, plus PDF of the Bound Gods Comic.
***Trading Cards 6x a year
*** Other gifts, but not limited to, pens, key chains and other items that can fit into a larger envelope. These will be sent out 2x a year.

Introducing Inochihime: Doxie Diaires artist

The young godling Jinx
I wanted to introduce you guys to the artist I hired to do the Doxie Diaries: Jinx and Ira: Bittersweet comic. She goes by Inochihime. Here is where you can find her online and check out her work.




We are only a couple of pages away from seeing the innocent Doxie Ira. So head over to my Patreon page for early access to comic pages. Eventually, they will be up for free on some of the webcomic sites.

I have also hired an artist to do the artwork for Bound Gods Book 1: The Chimera and Wild! And they are already working on it. I will have details about the artist up soon.

Thanks for all your support! Don't worry I am still writing :)

Graphic Novel updates: Bound Gods

This is minion Sharon. Adrienne and Pello stopped by to discuss cool things happening on the Patreon. An artist has been hired for the Bound Gods graphic novel! More details will be coming. Pages for the Doxie Diaries story Jinx and Ira are already posting. And an Alton origin story is posting. I am Team Alton...fight me!

Pello is a lap dog.

Future Bound Gods T-shirt and merchandise designs...

I am designing t-shirts, tote bags, key chains and other stuff for my Bound Gods patrons as rewards. Some things might 
be available for non-patrons to purchase.

Here is what my design team came up with (my design team is me, my assistant, an author friend, and possible Pello...coffee may have been involved and lots of inappropriate jokes.)

This one is for the bravest of my fans...

Depending on interest there might be some merchandise for some of my other books at some point.

Good news and the Bound Gods graphic novel

Hey! Adrienne's assistant here. Adrienne posted this over on the Bound Gods Patreon page. A lot of great stuff coming...like a Bound Gods graphic novel!! Can you imagine the artwork? *fans self* 
I want to let you there is enough membership now for me to put up at least two pages a month because I am doing my best to meet pledges dollar for dollar. The guy I am interviewing for the Bound Gods comic is very stoked. I just have to make sure he can pull off the character drawings as this seems to be the hardest for EVERYONE I have interviewed (over the past year) for this project. He's also very, very excited to do as many pages as possible---I told him careful what he wishes for. This means, if he gets the job, every penny on Patreon will go to him to keep him busy. I'd love, love, LOVE to see 4+ pages a month. I'd love to see enough, on the first annual birthday of this page, to put to bed the first full graphic novel to send out to patrons.

You have given so much, and I am overwhelmed by how generous you have been. I'm hoping it won't be too much to ask for you to spread the word. That, in my experience, has been the GREATEST way to get a project out, book or comic, where people can see it. There are folks out there who are not big novel readers (Shocking, I know) but they love yaoi comics or comics in general and would never know this is here without you. See, Patreon hides any page with adult content. You do NOT come up on searches, you do NOT come up on direct lookups with the name of the page or author. The Bound Gods site is basically in the proverbial basement behind a locked door with some big scary chick (chick, cause man, have you ever seen a woman fight, they're terrifying) guarding the door. And she has nine-inch steel razor nails and is looking to break one off in your face. Yup, that's how hidden we are. My only way to get things out is by hitting social media and screaming at the top of my lungs--and I am bad at that--really bad. Plus, when you toot your own horn, people tend to ignore it. Unless you fart, you fart and EVERYONE notices. Anyhow, if you take 1 minute out of your day, to post two links to this site, tell them what you love, what you hate, what you hope to see in the future, I'd be eternally grateful.

Also, $5 Amazon Gift cards go out at the end of this month. If I don't have your email PLEASE send it to me so my assistant can collect your address and we can get stuff out promptly to you. I will also be doing a T-shirt design and Logo. I'm gonna start with two different ones and put up variations of those logos for you to look at and vote on. The T-shirts will be a reward for higher tier Patrons in the future, all other Patrons can purchase one at a discount as well as those who just pass through. I will also have magnets, key chains, and if you have a suggestion for something else, let me know. These will go out to other tiers. Basically, everyone will get something.

So again, wave your Bound Gods banner (maybe I should make some of those little team flags) and tell the world about what they're missing.

More naughtiness on its way, so please stand by. But don't fart, farting never wins friends. Just ask my dog.

Doxie Diaries: Ira and Jinx in Bitter Sweet webcomic has started! Plus some WILD news.

I've got some new things going on over on my Patreon. The Doxie Diaries webcomic has started. The first story Doxie Diaries: Ira and Jinx in Bitter Sweet is about a young godling named Jinx. He hasn't taken any ambrosia yet and lives outside of the protected areas. His special skills are opening any mechanical lock, great a climbing (think extream parkour), unshakable balance and can land on his feet unhurt from any height. Ira is a young Doxie who has never had ambrosia either. He was hidden from the association outside of the protected area and has spent the last two years in a locked room.
There will be humor, angst and lots of smut...this is a Bound Gods story after all. The first page up on my Patreon and available to everyone for free. Page two can only be accessed by paying patrons for now. Eventually, each page will be free (but censored), patrons will always be many pages ahead and uncensored.

There will also be short stories. A Slice of The Past Story: The Death of Trust part 1 is up for paying patrons. This one is about Alton's past.

Coming up
I am interviewing artists for a Wild graphic novel. I've seen some awesome artwork and hope to hire someone soon and then show you some samples.

So my werewolf story...

So my werewolf story, not the Nox one, but the one that kinda leached into that story and I said that it belongs on its own? Yeah, I don't blame you I hardly remember too.

Anyhow, I wrote some notes on it then put it away because I never could find "the thing"...you know, that plot point that connects everything and makes the entire story cohesive, that very important detail that creates the glue for all the world building? Well, today I found it...and I'm really excited about it. Hopefully, it's original. I've never read anything with this take on wolf shifters, but then I don't read a whole heck of a lot of them.

I guess when it comes out, you guys can tell me if I did something new...or just reinvented an existing technique.

Bound Gods #9: The Stone God release day!

Meet Marud. If you are a fan of Leo and Kaleb, you will also love Marud and Jessie.
Marud is a god of legend.

He has destroyed empires, erased entire civilizations, crushed armies of millions.
No man, woman, or child is safe from his wrath.
No god or monster.
He is an unstoppable force.
A god who kneels to no one.

At least until Jessie Collins became a part of his life

This book is an "end for now". The timeline begins before book 6 and ends after book 8. It will meet up with the timeline of those books in books 10. The Stone God contains lots of side information that occurred in books 6-8 that only make sense when applied to this particular story. But it will also help you understand some of the motives of certain characters in those past books as well.
Again, this isn't the final story. You're just getting a different perspective of that downward spiral into hell. As well as a lot of information that you will need to understand the next installment.

Trigger warning: About 100 times the recommended daily dose of vitamin D.
Side effects may include, sore jaw, sitting crooked, not sitting at all, pain when swallowing, back pain, knee pain, muscle cramps, sleepiness, staying up all night reading, and disturbing thoughts. Use care when operating battery-powered devices.
Proceed with caution.
And a lot of lubricant.

Update on the Bound Gods series...



Stone God (Bound Gods #9)
is with the last beta reader and the ARCs have already gone out. You are going to love Marud and Jessie like you love Leo and Kaleb.





Doxie Diaries postcards
I've sent out the postcards to all my paying patrons. I have some left. If you would like a signed postcard, send me an S.A.S.E. You can email me to get my address. Make sure you send an envelope that can hold a 6x4 postcard. International postage ~$1




I'm not saying I enjoy gutting my reader's feels, but I got to admit these kinds of reviews make me smile.

Dani over at Love Bytes LGBTQ Book Reviews had this to say, about Bound Gods #6, 7, 8


You know what? I’m not even going to get up in arms with outrage. I’m not going to do it. I’m not! Because it’s not true, it’s NOT true. It can’t be true so I’m going to act like those last few pages didn’t happen and just go right into how amazing this author is. -Dani
rating – 4.5 stars


So my thoughts while reading Purgatory alternated between, “oh God poor Kaleb” “I miss Leo” “Oooh Kaleb…” “I could probably handle a Chimera” “Oh my Goodness, I don’t think I can handle a Chimera” “A cow/bull man doesn’t sound half bad.” “Damn Aaron, get it” “God, I love Taurus” “Skin the color of stone….sounds hot…I could get down with that” “What are you thinking Sonny?” “What’s wrong with you Sonny?” “Sonny, seriously get it the f*ck together!” And that’s basically all I can tell you about that. -Dani
rating – 4.5 stars

Ummm…ok. This may be the most hurt I’ve ever been after reading an Adrienne Wilder story. Eh, scratch that…My Brother’s Keeper f’d me up for months afterwards. But…but…Adrienne…why, why, why…?!?!!? So, needless to say what I wanted to happen didn’t happen. So, now I am again the poor pathetic soul I didn’t want to be….waiting…waiting…waiting…! Damn, it’s hard to love this author so friggin much. I kind of love it and hate it too. Guess that means I’m a Doxie…go figure… -Dani

I've got Doxie dolls! and a Bound God t-shirt

Not too long ago I posted about a secret project


I can FINALLY show you my super fun secret. Look what I've got. Real Doxies. And yes, they are anatomically correct and we are in the process of designing cock cages and butt plugs. HA!

If you have been waiting for a reason to join my patreon...here is a good one.

I have two, and once I finish decking them out they will go up for raffle prizes on my Patreon page. Anyone who has been a patron from June 1st to the date of the drawing (probably around September) will be eligible. All paying patrons will be entered. Your pledge amount dictates how many times you are put into the pot :) I hope to make this a regular prize for patrons on the Bound Gods Patreon website. :)

I plan on selling these. I'm working on getting the best price possible for you guys. More details coming soon.

What's up: Postcards, Bound Gods #9, new social media accounts

-I got the first patron postcards in! Everyone who is a paying patron (any amount) as of June 1, 2018, will receive a signed postcard in the mail. I will be collecting addresses over on Patreon soon. All content is still free to anyone who visits my Patreon page but sometime in June I will introduce paid tiers too.

-A new page in the Doxie Diaries went up! It is NSFW!!!

-I am also working on some Bound Gods t-shirt to sell. I hope to get them at a very reasonable price so stay tuned!

-I got in trouble from my assistant for having a Pinterest account and not telling her...so now the link in the sidebar <G>. I post a lot of drawing tutorials but there are other surprises there too. I found a picture of what Keegan from WILD would look like if he was real!

*Sharon here*
There is an Instagram account too! It has pictures of drawing practice.
*gives Adrienne side-eye glare*

-Bound Gods #9 should release June 1, 2018. I'm still deciding on the title...The Stone Child or The Stone God. Here is the cover right now.
-I am working on Book #10 right now. Not sure when it will be done. But I am going to be giving more attention to my art. I am still trying to find an artist to help me with a graphic novel of WILD. I am happy with the artist I have hired for the Doxie Diaries and you should be seeing much more of that soon.

-That's about it for now. Subscribe by email to get all my website updates in your mailbox (link in sidebar). If you are a paying Patron, you will automatically get those updates. Otherwise, you have to got visit the site to see what's been posted :)

How I know I'm doing things right... a review of The Claiming (Bound Gods #6)

All authors want the same thing. Make their readers feel things. We want you to feel: joy, sadness, anger, lust, suspense, hate, grief, love, angst. All 31 flavors of feels. And we want to get as many of those feels as we can into each book.
"For this scene, I think I'll make a banana split. One "banana", a scoop of love, a scoop of lust and a scoop of tenderness. Then once the reader is all happy and satisfied, I'll throw a scoop of angst, a scoop of hate, the reader's heart into a blender and hit puree!"

Jacque (reviews with The Jeep Diva blog) has been a long-time fan of my books. And she appreciates a lot of Doxie "loving" in the Bound Gods series.

So when her review was shown to me I couldn't have been happier.

Here are a few snippets. She did a good job of not giving away any spoilers:

I finished reading The Claiming last night and had to give myself a cooling off period before writing my review because WHAT THE...ARGH! How could you Adrienne?! How. Could. You.
...I laughed myself silly, got ready to get raunched on and, now that I finished the book, am desperately looking for matches.

Highs, lows, the freaks, and shockers. There was no putting this book down.
