(An excerpt from my erotic romance novella, Dangerous Jade!) Dangerous Jade by Malcolm Cross (First Chapter Sneak Preview) *** 1. - What Was Your Name?, or, The Olive Thing There it was, that electric thing. That eyes meeting across the room thing, that burning racetrack going from her eyes to the pit of her gut… Continue reading Dangerous Jade: First Chapter Preview
A happy holiday period to you all. This week has seen some noodling about with comic scripts on livestream, and also finally getting a toehold back in the treacherous climb toward writing the Pirate's Beard/Brocade Goat manuscript. (Which, amusingly, was a scene following the treacherous climb of one of the protagonists up a collossal hot… Continue reading Cheerblog for the holidays: Ho ho ho!
What takes almost a full year to bake, looks delicious, can open its jaws to a hundred and twenty degree angle, and comes for the gateway drug price of $9.95? That's right, it's Dangerous Jade, the latest and most ginger flavoured of the Cupcake novellas, which is now available for pre-order from Furplanet! The back-cover… Continue reading Dangerous Jade now available for pre-order!
I have a condition which I will refer to as, the Sneezles. Work-wise I have a few new bits and pieces which might end up in interesting short stories in the not too distant future, and I've gotten a few rejections, but one very personal and positive, so I feel quite upbeat about it. Dangerous… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Achoo!
On the personal front, I'll simply say this week hasn't been good to me. And I haven't been very good to this week. In my wake rest a trail of burnt and failed cookery projects several miles and one trashed kitchen wide. So, there's not much to report. But, Dangerous Jade is on the very… Continue reading Workblog for the week: I got nuthin’.
This past week has been incredibly unproductive. Why, you may reasonably ask? The answer will astound: I was on a boat. A very large boat. A boat named HMS Victory. And another boat, named HMS Warrior. And some museums. And I was otherwise around and about the highly nautical city of Portsmouth. Unfortunately, thanks to… Continue reading Workblog for the week: On a boat?
So much of my week's been spent defeating writer's block, and it's been fairly successful - not the greatest week of writing, but far better than previously, and I finished a new scene which those I have shown it to, in order to gather positive reinforcement, have claimed to enjoy. Much of this involves a… Continue reading Workblog for the week: Blowing hot air.
So! News for the week. Biggest news is undoubtedly that my cupcake novella, Dangerous Jade, has reached release-candidate draft status and is now undergoing proofing. I can tell you about that. What I can't tell you about, just yet, is that the artist lined up to do the cover and interior illustrations has a name… Continue reading Workblog for the Week, again.
(This somewhat in-world document predates Dog Country by quite some time, so might not be fully canonical, but offers an alternative perspective on the events around the T-Bone marketplace. I sometimes enjoy making strange little artefacts!) Document 0A-21040513
( This is quite an early Estians/War Dogs story, written long before I started work on Dog Country. The protagonist does have a brief cameo in Dog Country, however. ) It was a long way home. Evran had thought that, thousands and thousands of miles away, back in Tajikistan, before things had hit the wall.… Continue reading You Can Never Go Home
