It's been a while! :)

In January, I lost my beloved 20 month old kitten, Dorian, to FIP. It was hard. I am actually now in therapy to help deal with the lingering grief and depression. As such, it hasn't really lended me much of a desire to create. It's actually pretty damn hard when I was simply crying all the time. It was made worse in April when we had to let our eldest cat, Little Boy, go due to a debilitating stroke he suffered.

But, I did manage to scrape myself together enough to finish, edit, and publish a new novella!

Human Rights is the novella I squeezed out of my brain after pecking at it for about two years. It artwork was done by the amazing Nathie, who has done most of the covers for my books. (And, I hope, they will continue doing covers for my books!)

Here's the blurb:

After landing in the pound after being abandoned by yet another family, Ewan is convinced he's too old to be adopted out again. For a pet like him, the only fate left is to be put down. But when Sir Jiat—of the City Guard, no less—visits the pound, he goes straight to Ewan. Jiat prefers the more mature pets and treats Ewan better than he's ever been treated by any previous owner. Ewan sleeps at the foot of his master's bed, not on the floor or outside; he is given toys and other pets to play with and plenty of room to run; and he's fed on a schedule and eats very well. But Ewan's love for his master begins to change, to become something else, something more.

Plenty of pets have been killed over the years for acting on the feelings that Sir Jiat inspires, so he dares not express the desire building inside him. And yet, Ewan can't help but notice that Sir Jiat has begun to act differently as well, more doting, treating Ewan almost as an equal. So even though the thing he wants more than anything is also their society's greatest taboo, Ewan resolves that if he must die, he will die having felt, just once, the warmth of Sir Jiat's soft fur pressed against his bare naked skin.

You can get it at Storm Moon Press or any other major retailer (except Kobo as they say it's bestiality, and though we're fighting with them over it, they're being stubborn) for $3.99. It is an ebook, but it will be available in print by Christmas.

Now, I just need to start working on the next project... or finish the many I have up in the air. XD
