First and foremost, apologies. My last author-type communication was in February of this year. Since then, I’ve pretty much dropped off the Jet Mykles scene. Like so many — too many — people, I succumbed to depression and isolation in 2020, doing just enough to get by (although, I have to say, working from home every day for the EDJ was a perk). Because of this, I’ve stalled my progress with the Heaven Sent reboot and my other books are not currently available.
My goal is to change that in 2021!

So, audiobooks. I’ve come to love them over the past few years. Now, if things go right, I might have a way to make them. Which I would love to do.
My question. Would you enjoy Heaven Sent audiobooks narrated by a woman (me)? Or does it need to be a guy?
You know what I mean? The guys who go beyond rubbing you the wrong way. The guys you want to kick or punch just for being an ass. The ones, as I asked, who make your teeth itch to bite them, and not in the sexy good way. Continue reading What Kind of Heroes Make Your Teeth Itch?
Since I’m considering my self-pub options now that Loose Id is closing its doors, I decided I should reread some of them. After all, in the case of Dark Elves 1, I wrote that about 13 years ago (2005). So, yeah, I may have written it but I don’t remember all the details because I haven’t actually read it for years.
OK. Wow. Continue reading Did I Really Write That?
Valentine’s Day is coming up. It’s also my anniversary with the man in my life. 22 years. Doesn’t seem possible. I love you, honey!
But, even though I’ve got my own hero, I write romance so I’ve naturally considered, analyzed and fantasized about many different heroes. Through 30+ published stories, I’ve shared a number with my readers.
And I’ve come to the conclusion that I like my heroes flawed. Continue reading The Flawed Hero
For those who haven’t heard, Loose Id will be closing its doors in May of this year. This is huge for me. Dark Elves 1: Taken, my first published book, was release by Loose Id in 2005. Since then, I’ve published 37 stories with them. I’ve learned so much about myself in that time. From my darkly raunchy escapades in the fantasy world of a goddess and her elves through menages with shifters and witches and into homosexual rock stars, I’ve shared all sorts of romances and have been lucky enough to find an audience that enjoys reading them.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do now. Continue reading It’s a New Year and Things are going to Change
So here’s the deal. It didn’t decide to write the Rose Family Chronicles on a whim. To be honest, I didn’t particularly want to write it. While I’ve read them, historicals aren’t my favorite. Too many rules. Too many things that have to happen to match up to reality. Those of you who’ve read my books might have gotten the hint that I’m not all that fond of reality. I’m big on escapism. Continue reading Historical writing is hard!
Stress is an amazing thing. You — or, at least, I, since I don’t really know what anyone else feels — don’t always feel it. Then sometimes it’s all you feel. It works its way into everything you do and affects things that you might not think it would or should. It becomes your outlook and it’s hard to see past it.
For those of you who think I might be going a bit slow on the writing lately — like the past four or so years — blame it on stress. Continue reading Life Stresses
Today I’ve got a guest post on A.O. Chika’s Book Blog about re-using my Heaven Sent characters in the Rose Family Chronicles.
Author Highlight: Jet Mykles
I’ve signed up for NaNoWriMo this year in an attempt to spur some writing. Wish me luck!
