Cover reveal for Jack L. Pyke's book Breakdown (Don't Book 3)

Cover reveal for Jack L. Pyke's book Breakdown (Don't Book 3)
Tentative Release date: June 28th
Cover art by Adrienne Wilder
"I've got my new cover art for Breakdown, Don't Book 3... I think I'm in love this one! It's a young Jack Harrison, when he's at his most chaotic, just breaking down and all ash & embers... death &... Martin."
-Jack L Pyke

“Who’s been whispering to you, Jack?” ~ Doctor Halliday.

Jack Harrison has the evidence there in his hands—the DVD and notepad off D.C. Sanders that proves Gray supposedly played a part in tearing him and Jan brutally apart. But with Jack locked away in his own mind and lost to his blackouts and self-harming in the Masters’ Circle’s psychiatric unit, the past brings to light the origins of a new beast, one who only comes out to play when Jack needs to hide—a psychopath who has perhaps tasted and tested Gray to the full. All Jack has to do is remember how… and why. More to the point—why does one part of him know Gray’s signature mark as an interrogation’s officer? And why is there such a serious sadistic kick in hiding the memory?"

Visual Timeline of the Bound Gods Books

Bound Gods Timeline

A reader suggested I do this (thank you) to help give a visual as to where you are time-wise with each book. I will include this in future books and insert them into the paperbacks. I'll put them in the ebooks but I'm not sure they will show up because Amazon flips to the first chapter. I'm going to put out 11 and 12 together to hopefully avoid any wait time and or more confusion/frustration ;).

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.

Patreon Rewards Change

MinionS here:

There has been a change in the way we will handle early release copies of Adrienne's books. I have removed the copy of Pandora's Heart from Patreon because people can join, grab the book, and unjoin.
 
That is fine for all the content. Feel free to join, read what you want at that level and leave. BUT free/early copies of a book are for loyal patrons. You have to be a patron for at least two months to get access to books. This also keeps pirates from grabbing an early copy.

From now on, I will send eligible patrons a copy via private message.

On a different note...Nox hit #1 for a short while!! 

There is going to be a review/promo book tour for Nox through Gay Book Promotions June 17-21. There will be a print giveaway with it. I'll keep you posted :)

I hate posts without an image so...
Go check out a naughty sketch Adrienne did. You can see it uncensored on Instagram along with some other art.

Cover reveal: Psychopaths & Sinners (Don't... Book 5) by Jack L. Pyke

Friend and MM author Jack L. Pyke is re-releasing Psychopaths & Sinners (Don't... Book 5) with new cover art.
Psychopaths & Sinners (Don't... Book 5)
by Jack L. Pyke
RE-RELEASE: MAY 28, 2019
Cover Art: Adrienne Wilder
"Because us? Psychopaths & sinners. We don't need fixing, Gray." ~ Martin

Three bodies, three mutilations, each one with something… unusual inserted into the wounds. The deaths are enough to leave Ash Thomas scrambling around to find someone to trust as the murders hit so close to home and heart.

For Gray Raoul, MI5 director of G-Branch, the deaths offer something else, a fall back into a familiar life where culling serial killers cater to his own darker mindset. But the farther Gray moves away from home, the more he realises serial killer games in the field are nothing compared to who he has locked up back at home. Sometimes walking the fine line between psychopaths and live-in lovers is a far darker game.

For Ash, that might just mean he’s on his own now, facing a killer who has a deadly fascination for pretty young men and dancing Holly Blue butterflies over their skin.

A prequel novella to Psychopaths & Sinners
also releases May 28

I'll let you know when I get more details :) If Nox does well and Tantor is interested, I'll release some of my other books as well.

Puppy news!

In about 8 weeks I will be getting a German Shepard puppy to start training as a service dog. Pello is getting a little age on him and will have to retire to couch potato in a few years. I'll be sharing the occasional pictures/videos in my newsletter.

This is just coincidence, but MinionS is getting her empty nest dog (her youngest goes to college this fall). A Standard Poodle from the same breeder I got mine from. The litter is due at the end of May. I'm sure she will share pics too.

Sign up for my Newsletter and get an excerpt from The Darkest Hour.

After much crying and headbanging, MinionS set up a newsletter to keep everyone up-to-date with my new releases. There will be an occasional surprise newsletter sent with excerpts, artwork or giveaway.

When you sign up you will receive an excerpt from a current WIP. 
Right now it is an excerpt from The Darkest Hour - Jeff's Story.

click to sign up

You don't have to read In the Absence of Light to enjoy The Darkest Hour.
But consider giving it a try. Of all the characters I've created, Morgan is closest to my heart. I don't think I'll ever write another character like him. But I'll try.


***5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Changed Me***
This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is in my top three of books that had a profound effect on me (I'm still waiting to find that third book). Grant and Morgan's story was beautiful to read. I'm ashamed to say that I almost passed up this story after reading the blurb once I saw that Morgan had autism; however the reviews I read convinced me to give it a try and I'm so very glad I did. - Candy Cane

Patreon Anniversary and rewards, Padora's Heart news

This is a long one folks! Lots of info :)

We are coming up on our 1 year anniversary for Patreon, so I am going to jiggle the rewards around some. Mainly because I apparently can't keep track of time and forget to do shit or just get overwhelmed and forget to do shit. I want to make sure you guys are getting rewards worth waiting for even if they're late.
$5 and up tiers
As I put the Bound Gods books into print (and I am one at a time slowly) you will receive these as a reward. I am planning on 1 every 2-3 months, if I get them done quicker, then they will go out quicker.

$7and up tiers
You will get e-copies of any additional new releases (I'm shooting for at least a week before the Amazon release) and a print copy if and when they come out. 


I will try to get Pandora's Heart out in print at the same time I do the ebook. I know I'm bad about doing things on time. I'd give you a long run down excuses but it boils down to being autistic which in turn snowballs other things. If it weren't for Sharon I'd keep nothing together. She's probably the best friend I've had since Lori died twelve years ago. She helps me tons, but she also has a life and can't stay on of me 24/7. But she tries, trust me :) So please bear with me.

$3 and up tiers are getting New Postcards

They have FINALLY arrived. My art of Pandora and Ishtar, plus NSFW art from Yulia (I have been waiting months for) will go out shortly. EDIT: MinionS here. I have them addressed and ready to mail.

I have new Bitter Sweet pages again. 
YAY--apparently they have a kind of mandatory blackout period or something like that where Yulia is and they turn her internet off at random and she has no way to communicate or send stuff. She did warn me that this would happen before I hired her. It seems it's sometimes more often than others but she's getting me extra pages so hopefully, I won't get behind again.
I plan on turning all the current pages of Bitter Sweet comic into print.
$5 and up tiers will get a print copy.

$1and up tiers will receive a PDF of the comic.


This comic will also go on sale on Amazon and my website. So if you know people who want a copy, just let them know. And I'll make some memes you guys can spread around. If you're on any Yaoi facebook pages and art is allowed, please post it if you don't mind.

Stickers?
I am thinking of having some stickers made as well and wanted to know what kind of stickers you guys would like to have? The Chimera?

Anniversary reward for all tiers
Also since it is coming up on a year anniversary I want to do something for EVERYONE including the lower tiers. So I am going to discuss with Sharon about sending a physical reward to every member :) It will be light enough that it should mail cheaply, but be usable too.

And FINALLY--Pandora is off to the second editor. If all goes as planned I should have it out in a week to ten days. I am not gonna put a date on it because I don't want to miss it.

$5 and up tiers will receive a PDF copy before it comes out.
I just ask you one big favor, if you have time and don't mind, please make sure to leave a review as soon as it hits Amazon and on Goodreads at any time. I give up KU free reads when I give away the books (and no I am not complaining just explaining what I mean) so they don't count towards my sales and Amazon doesn't give boost or exposure if you're not getting lots of sales. Again, I do not mind giving this up because you guys do so much more. 

If you don't mind, please talk about the book to your friends, enemies, the weird guy standing in line at wall-mart at 2am wearing bunny slippers and bootie shorts. I don't care if you hate it, still talk about it. Tell people why you love/hated it. It's just important that word gets around its out. Bound Gods is one of those series people read, but don't want to admit it. I quite literally get a tiny, tiny, tiny number of reviews in comparison to how many books I've sold over the years. And without reviews, I don't get seen on Amazon. Without sales, well, I've had series die a quick death because of it. Series that I love to write, and love the characters. Sadly, I'm not wealthy enough to write books just for the hell of it. Maybe one day (because I seriously have some fucked up stories I'd like to do that I am 99% sure most my audience wouldn't touch), but that is not today. I do not see this happening with Bound Gods because so many of you DO talk about it and I thank you for that with ALLLLLLL my heart.

Anyhow, that's my new update and thank you so much for supporting me on Patreon which helps a ton during skinny months and makes it possible for me to do the Bitter Sweet comics as well as my own drawing (which helps when I have blocks).


MinionS here: I'm going to set up a newsletter for Adrienne! If I can figure that shit out. When you sign up you will get the first chapter of Jeff's story!!! The Darkest Hour. 
*Goes to figure shit out*

I am creating another humorous Doxie mini-comic. The first one was "Chimera Christmas." You can read the uncensored version at any patron tier.

$3 and up patrons will get uncensored pages (one to two a week). 
$1 patrons will get censored pages. Once the comic is finished all patrons will have access to the uncensored PDF copy. 

Sneak peek: here is page 1
Poor Kaleb had a hard night...wonder why? Leo...what did you do?

Nox by Adrienne Wiilder in now available on Amazon

Adrienne Wilder's newest release NOX is now available on amazon K.U.
NOX
1by Adrienne Wilder
April 3, 2019
A nude man invades Luca Suarez's home and protects him from creatures who cannot exist. 
Creatures hunting him. 
The stranger can't tell Luca why. He can't even tell Luca his name. 
He remembers nothing until the moment he sees Luca.
The only hint Luca has to the stranger's identity is a tattoo on his wrist: N o X

Nox doesn't know who he is, but he's sure of three things, his memory loss is temporary, the monsters chasing Luca are called Anubis, and his Alpha, Koda, sent Nox to protect him.

There's just one problem… Koda is Luca's brother who was murdered five years ago.

With each passing hour, Nox fills in the pieces painting an impossible truth. And with each passing hour, both men find themselves unexplainably attracted to each other.

Something Luca is willing to embrace because he has nothing left to lose.
And one Nox can't let happen because it could get Luca killed.

Nox is a HEA/HFN m/m paranormal, science-fiction romance.


But be warned, these are NOT the shifters you are used to reading about.

I am still struggling to get Nox done. Ran into another snag with the story but I am right there at the end! Pandora is moving along pretty good too.

Artwork of Keegan from Wild

Hey! This is MinionS. Adrienne is working HARD on finishing Nox as well as doing some writing on Pandora. And he's working on improving his art skills. The goal is to illustrate the Wild graphic novel. Here is his practice drawing of Keegan. I'm thinking he nailed him! (totally worded that so it sounded dirty). There are a few other drawings on Patreon that will eventually get posted here too :)

There is a 350-word excerpt from Pandora on Patreon. It is a pretty emotionally tense scene between Pandora and Ishtar. You can read it as well many other things for as little as $1 a month :)

Got any questions or feedback for Adrienne, feel free to say!
