<![CDATA[Aeryn Jaden Author - Blog]]>Mon, 18 Jan 2016 21:51:20 +0200Weebly<![CDATA[Update, News and Giveaway Contest!]]>Sat, 19 Sep 2015 18:02:58 GMThttp://aerynjadenauthor.weebly.com/blog/update-news-and-giveaway-contestI recently got a message from a reader asking me if I dropped off the face of the planet. My answer: Almost. Between changing 3 countries and 5 rents in the last 9 months and trying to keep up with day job and writing (not to mention being a bridesmaid for my sister), yeah, I sometimes felt more dead that alive. And never more alive. Life is weird.

I'm sorry to say I neglected most of my accounts (except Facebook. Who can neglect Facebook, she's a demanding mistress!). But, but, but. I didn't neglect writing. Mostly. So off to the news part of this ranting.

  1. Yes, I'm planning of continuing the Billy story. (For those who don't know some of my friends and I had a what if  game going on at ManLoveFantasies. Check it out for the great stories or for the next contest coming soon.)
  2. Book 4 is out soon! What Book 4, you say? Return of the Originals, Drakon's Angel is ready for preorder already, hehhehehe. Here's some visual teasing:
Drakon's Angel





3. I had more, I swear. Hmmm, what was it...? Contest Time! I need you to help me choose between my WIPs before I go crazy, lol. Each comment left will sign you in for my giveaway, one copy of Drakon's Angel! The contest will run until the release day, 23rd September. This year, lol.

So which one should I finish writing first? These are the contenders:


1. Enchanting His MateYup, this is Book 5 in Return of the Originals. Already 15k in and going strong. Keep your fingers crossed! Here's a teaser:
"…who?"
Who? Who? That was a voice! A male voice! Rugged and rasp from disuse or like the humans’ voices become from whisky and cigarettes. He could not guess the age, he could not see the person in his head, but the voice, that he heard clear as day. Oh. My. Gods!
He actually took a step forward, his legs quivering in jerky trembles as if he was pulled by an unseen force towards the green bushes at the garden’s entrance.
“Twinkie! Hell- Mallick!”
Mallick stopped as if he had hit a brick wall and let a pitiful whine full of –pain? He didn’t have time for this. He didn’t know what he was feeling, if it was him or the other person he felt in his head. He was more than confused and he needed time. Mallick also needed to focus and not forget what he needed to accomplish. The fate of the world was on his shoulders. Hopefully he’ll find allies here to share the burden.
“That’s the chapel with the remains of my family. You are free to visit it whenever you want.”
Mallick nodded, a dazed expression still on his face and followed rude guy in what appeared to be a small wing designated as a clinic. Or planned to follow. His entrance to what he had glimpsed as a small examination room suddenly was blocked by the hulking frame of a scowling blond mutant. The guy had to be a mutant with how build he was.


2. Fluffy Business- This is an older WIP, almost 20k in and has a more humorous tone in approaching a shifter-human pairing. First in a series of 5 books. Want a snippet? 

I'm not really a dog person. Ugh. Scratch that. I'm not at all a dog person. I'm the typical cat lover. Ugh. That sounded so much better in my mind. Anyway, what I mean is that I don't get all gaga over a dog. Sure they're cute, and fluffy and adorable with their puppy dog eyes begging for attention and… You get my drift.

Dogs demand attention. And time and a lot of care. Cats are more independent. They do their thing and let you do yours. Peacefully. Usually (waking in the middle of the night with an enraged and hungry jaguarondi pouncing on your chest can and will give a man a small heart attack, but that's a story for another time).

I was talking about dogs here before I divagated like I usually do. If you're wondering what's the point in all this, just bear with me a little more. Where was I? Ah, yes. Dogs and me liking them. Now, I can handle dogs. We get along just fine (usually), although we're not the best of friends, they like me just fine. Especially since I'm the dinner provider and if they eat me they won't get any food. We have some sort of agreement. They stop chewing my shoes and I don't scream their ears off. I throw a walk a day in the bargain. My mistake.

Thus my present predicament. Running in the park after the big mutt. This monster goes by the name Fluffy if you believe it. Yeah, I don't think he likes it either, he gets this annoyed look on his face, if a dog can look annoyed, and growls under his breath every time I call him that. So I save it for special occasions. Like now.

3. Moving Objects- Ghost story! Started this when I was living in Lincoln, practically on top of a cemetery. Fun, no? Yes, I'm weird. 

He blinked and froze. His body recoiled but there was nowhere to go. Nowhere to run. He opened the mouth to scream and the blood rushed in his lungs, choking him while the grotesque face floating right in front of him like it was made of tick streams of the vital fluid suffocating him, sneered at him.

Adrian jumped and grunted at the hard impact with the wood floor, his ears ringing. He gulped desperately for air and filled his lungs while tightly squeezing his eyes shut.

“Dream, dream. Just a dream. A fucking dream. Okay. You’re okay, Addy. Everything is okay. Open your eyes. Don’t be a coward, there’s no blood. Christ!”

He tautly rubbed his face and pressed his fingers on his eye sockets, trying to curb the jittery tremors coursing through him and hysterically laughed at the neurotic spooked state he was in.

“Christ, you’re a mess, Addy! No wonder it took you so long to see what bloody Roger was hinting at- you ‘re slipping, my boy.”

He ignored the whispering doubt plaguing him from forever, the niggling thought that he’ll end up bat-shit crazy like his mom, that he won’t even know when it will happen. Another deep breath and he slowly removed his hands. The room looked better in the daylight. The green was less puke-hospital in his bare walls and appeared to give the room a fresh, springy feel. Probably because of the luxuriant ivy framing half the room and window. Adrian had never seen such a lush, coily mass of live greenness in a room before. It reminded him of the old greenhouse he had once saw as kid in an architecture magazine left on the chairs of a best left forgotten metro station. No wonder he was having nightmares with green stuff trying to make a meal of him.

WHICH ONE? And a thousand apologies for the lack of editing.

PS. I remembered! Will have another surprise release for you soon, so keep in touch! Yeah, that should apply to me too. I know, I know. Kisses! Ta-Ta

<![CDATA[News]]>Sat, 07 Feb 2015 10:21:03 GMThttp://aerynjadenauthor.weebly.com/blog/newsHis Imperfect Mate seems to be doing fine, much more hat I expected it. And book four is not finished yet...Sorry! I've been sick the last 2 weeks! The good news that I wanted to share is that I have 3 novels half finished that I'm trying to finish this month. One is book 4 in Return of the Originals while the other two are brand new series! They were supposed to be standalones but apparently I'm incapable of writing standalones :).

One is Fluffy Business which I already announced in my About page. Going well , but has some characters that are just asking for it, hehehe.

The other one is a short story that I wanted to self publish free for Valentine's. Yeah, well. The short story is now over 15k and my main character has developed a rare condition- he got himself a yummy twin, So, my short standalone story is at least 2 books now. One a ménage from what I see, that twin is a kinky beast!

Will update with blurbs! And titles! Going back to writing now.

His Imperfect mate
[Siren Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M/M, shape-shifters, werewolves, light consensual BDSM, HEA]

All the Originals, beings that created all the supernaturals, have vanished a long time ago. 

Or did they now? Killa is one of them and he doesn't feel dead at all. Though that could happen any day now. He is hunted by one of his brothers and has nowhere to go. Unless he happens to find some of his old friends… He finds more than he bargains for.

Keen had barely survived his family's torture and his spirit is almost broken. Finding his mate lying wounded in the bed next to him is a dream come true. Until it transforms into a nightmare. The small wolf has enough experience with those to last him several lifetimes. 

Will Keen get his perfect ending or is his mate as imperfect as his life had been until now? Did he want Killa any other way than how he is? After all, they seem to be perfectly imperfect for each other.

<![CDATA[Interview with my main pain in the ass character! New Year's Eve resolutions]]>Mon, 05 Jan 2015 01:51:52 GMThttp://aerynjadenauthor.weebly.com/blog/interview-with-my-main-pain-in-the-ass-character-new-years-eve-resolutions

This was the alternative interview I did for MM Winter Contest! Be sure to check it out and see what amazing gifts are in store for you at 
http://manlovefantasies.blogspot.com/

   I was sure I’ll get a bit intimidated face to face with him so I searched the Google for an appropriate (or not so) way of questioning a close mouthed bastard as Bain Conner. And yes, I admit it. I’m not intimidated, more like flustered. Sue me, I have a thing for big guys with bigger... personality!

I present you Bain Conner, main fantasy material from Good for Me and his thoughts for the coming year:

 What do you want most to achieve during the next year?

 Bain: “To keep up. College, yes. But mostly, I want to keep up with Tyler and that quirky brain of his. He keeps me on my toes. “

 Should I even ask how your love life is shaping to be?


Bain:  (amused smirk)
“ You can but I’m not promising to answer. We’re doing good, ups and downs, but good. He’s still skittish. I hope to fix that in the future but it’s gonna take time.”

I understand that you’re thinking about changing homes. Does Tyler know?
Bain: “No and he won’t until it’s a done deal. I’ll be moved and settled before he realizes what’s happening. I already talked to his brother, he has some plans of his own and thinking about moving out. Probably until Valentine’s day. It’s all coming along pretty well and nobody will warn Tyler. Right?”
(glares and growls in my direction)

 You don’t need to frown that hard. Now Bain, please tell your fans what would you like to see most during the next year? Any New Year’s resolutions you care to share?
Bain: (grimace)
“I don’t have fans.”


Pouting doesn’t suit you.
Bain: (impressive growl, followed by an equally impressive muscle flexing)
“I’m not pouting! Did Tyler talk to you lately?”

 Tyler had talked to me lately but I’m not telling what he said. Just a friendly advice, buy lots a lube! Hehehe
Bain: (ignores me and the blush climbing up his neck)
“About my resolutions. Most of them depend on Tyler. I really want that man to stop running but it probably won’t happen next year or even next decade,”
(We hear the sound of smashed glass and a bang, Tyler’s voice muttering in the background. Bain smirks when cell phones are being mentioned.)

Aren’t you worried he’s hurt himself? He seems a bit clumsy in the kitchen.
Bain: “Nah, he probably just dropped his cell phone in the sink or in a pot. He likes to kill them by drowning.  I think it’s his 5th one this year. I’m more worried about my future indigestion after I eat what he’s cooking.”

On the bright side, cooking you a home meal is a big effort on his part.
Bain: “That’s why I’ve bought three different indigestion drugs in advance. I’m gonna eat what he’s burning if it kills me.”

But you know how to cook. Why haven’t you told him?
Bain: “Who told you that? Don’t tell Tyler yet. He’s trying really hard to do something nice and considerate, nobody messes with his feelings!”
(He growls again and just looks yummy with that dangerous vibe all around him)
“Is this interview done yet? I want to see if the kitchen is still intact.”

No, it isn’t. You’re supposed to tell everybody what would you like to see in the new year. What  is your New Year resolution?
Bain: “Fine”
(Pouting does make Bain resemble a big teddy bear. He’s obviously anxious to check on Tyler.)
“I want Tyler happy. My resolution is that I’ll do anything to make that happen.”

(His blush becomes more pronounced and he shrugs it off. I couldn’t believe that the big intimidating hunk was so cheesy.)

“I also want to see his step father getting hit in the balls and the moron that attacked him last moth behind bars.”

Errr. I’ll see what I can do.
Bain: (He stops frowning and we both jump a bit when a new crash and a loud ouch is heard from the kitchen)
You better stop him before he kills himself.

 (But I was already talking to Bain’s back as he hurried to save his boyfriend of just four months from being murdered by an uncooperative kitchen.)
