Charm School: novelized

I did the cover, and yes, I kinda adore it. Bunny as a ‘real girl’. *hearts*

The Twilight World: where monsters and magical people meet. Teen witch Bunny has a perfectly wicked girlfriend in vampire biker Dean, until a dark faerie comes along. Can Bunny resist Fairer Than’s charms? And when she does, what will Fairer Than do about it? Paranormal romance, fantasy, comedy. LGBT YA.

PRE-ORDER yours today! Will release October 4th as part of the WITCHING HOUR COLLECTION, by the Blazing Indie Collective.

The second in the series is HOT RODDIN’ TO HELL (cover is done, rather prematurely Revealed over at the Charm School site and at my FB group,Elizabeth Watasin’s Club Hecate, but oh well), and the third—-not seen in comic book form—-is BODY CHASE, which is already written (and the cover revealed). These will all come out this winter 2015.

I noticed this is the month(? or was it last month) for LGBT reads? Well, I hope you’ll add this one to that curiosity pile. As it’s sci-fi, I can finally try my hand at portraying several gender aspects and sexualities. 😀 Frankly, I wrote the planet I want to live on. ^v^

#Amwriting the next Darquepunk book, Bloody Nike, plus addressing final notes on Monster Stalker. I don’t think I ever got around to sharing *why* I’m ‘suddenly’ writing queer science fiction—with a noir and paranormal bent—and have hurtled myself through space/time from the paranormal Victorian period I was immersed in.

Back in March, *right* when Wondercon happened, I had a big lightning strike. I have no idea where it came from, but a sci-fi concept I’d been sitting on for years (probably since ’98), suddenly came together. Well, it made sense to me. A planet called Darqueworld with preternatural beings and celestials and leviathans finally *worked*, right then (again, it made sense in my head). And I could have a vampire girl from the ’90’s drop right into it, with her switchblade and teddy bear.

IT BECAME NECESSARY TO WRITE IT. The idea of sitting on the idea more whilst I try to get the third Dark Victorian, the third DV penny dread, and the third Elle Black done was kind of painful (PS, my poor POISON GARDEN has hit a big snag due to my needing a new editor. I just need to find a editor with strong Victorian and UK understanding to tackle it. :-/).

So I’m planning to get all three books done by October. Am writing like a bat outta space/time Hell. ^v^

~~See you on the Darque Side

I’m proud of this work (hitting at 93K words, so it’s a full-length novel), as I had to go out of my comfort zone to write it. I’ll let the synopsis speak for me. ^v^ I hope you’ll support it and when it releases, enjoy it. 🙂

Horror follows vampire Nico to a new world, and an old horror within her responds; kill it before it kills her. Nico jeopardises everything on a lone, redemptive path rescuing victims of the underworld and hunting the nightmare that created her—a monster only Nico knows is there.
A paranormal sci-fi noir. Darquepunk science fiction for the gothic, different, and queer. Gen X, gender fluidity. Polyaphroditic.
Some sexual content; Mild language; Violence; sexual violence.

“Kill first.”
Vampire Nico popped from the year 1998 into a New NewYork airfield, a sudden chrono-immigrant with Mr Bear strapped to her, her switchblade in hand, and no idea how or why she got there. She’s on Darqueworld: an intragalactic society 400 light years from Old Earth, where Other-beings and humans co-exist and vampires are no big deal. Nico can have a normal student life at last and even date a diner waitress she likes. But there’s a darkened spot in her mind, one blanking out her immediate past, and the spectre of Nico’s maker haunts her. Only in New NewYork’s underworld can Nico find what pursues her—and kill it again.

“Way to go, Super Nico!”
“I am not super,” Nico snapped.
“Got it. Stupid nickname. You are Lone Nico and Bear.”

Enjoy the Darquepunk Universe:
The preternatural take to the stars, but the gods and goddesses had long gone first, in sentient sky boats, chariots, and Valkyrian ships, to found a planet of quakes, dreams, and monsters. Darqueworld: where spacefarers and chrono-travellers seek answers and riches amid celestial corporations and refugee Other-beings. Weird-matter wielders, shifters, vampires, intragalactic species, bio-mechanical beings, artificial constructs—and mere humans; every adventurer and outcast with a dream or desire, come to Darqueworld for haven or hell.
