The Catalyst - new book!


[info]elfflame
Hello, all! I know I've been incredibly quiet here for ages, and I've meant to talk about this for a while now, but I kept getting distracted by life. I just wanted to let anyone still here know that my first book is being released tomorrow!

It's a gay steampunk romance. I've got a facebook for my penname, Kathryn Curran, as well as a twitter account. I hope you will follow me at one or both of those places.



Summary:
With his family disgraced by his father, the last thing Gabriel needs, while on the run, is to fall in love with another man, but destiny has other ideas.

Gabriel, heir to Earl Bothwick, is sent into hiding, along with his best friend, Priscilla, and his former tutor and chaperone, Mr. Tinely. His disguise is a dress, and his mode of escape an airship destined for the Americas.

The only problem is Ethan James. He’s tall, dark, and interested in Gabriel. Despite their difference in class, Gabriel can’t help but feel a connection with the man, something he tries to resist. Despite Gabriel’s protests, Mr. Tinely invites the young man to travel with them across the American continent.

But at every turn, pursuers await them, and when Gabriel discovers the true reason he’s being hunted and the special gift he holds, will he be able to survive and learn to accept who he really is? Or will he become a pawn in his enemy’s plan to end the world as they know it?

And here's a link to all the places you can buy it from.

I hope people will give it a look!

#ShowYourself and other voicings


[info]bronze_ribbons
First, a signal boost for the next two weekends:

SHOW YOURSELF TOUR INSTA FLYER V1.0

I first saw Alex Wong perform when he toured with Vienna Teng as her percussionist. He moved to Nashville a few years later, and I've since been to his house for food (an earlier edition of Angelhouse Family Dinners) and music. He's now raising funds for AAPI justice/assistance orgs through a virtual tour, and the first four sessions were terrific (including a beautifully filmed capoeira duet to Bob Dylan's "Boots of Spanish Leather"). The lineup for this weekend includes a book artist, poet Ciona Rouse (who was terrific in Nick Cave: Feat. Nashville a few years ago), and Kentucky cellist Ben Sollee (whom, come to think of it, I also first heard via a Vienna Teng tour, and whose "Bury Me With My Car" had me doubled over laughing during that session).



Life hurtles on. Many people hurting. Many platters spinning. Many postcards to write.

This week I've edited in both French and English, next week will include some Spanish translation, and I'm blasting Gaelic punk as I power through some of the prep for the museum's next big show.

I caught most of last night's White Sox no-hitter against Cleveland, which was fun.

The chenille basket is definitely doing better outdoors, especially since I've been making a point of putting in full sun for the recommended 4 to 6 hours. All the kale plants may have come home or come down with something bacterial; the roses may have not one disease but two, but are also putting forth lots of clean leaves and buds, so I swore and snipped and sprayed yesterday and am opting to be optimistic. The irises are spectacular. I need to clear ground for the tomatoes and other starters from my church's herb fair, and some zinnia seedlings are emerging in a patch I've started in the back yard. Indoors, the Paula Jane fuchsia is gorgeous, most of the chocolate cherry tomato seedlings are doing well, and there is a lopsided bloom on the never-quite-healthy miniature rosebush.

I went on a Poshmark tear earlier this week (splurging on five cute dresses for $58 total) and picked up my two new pairs of glasses (sun and standard). The latter torched my FSA but were definitely overdue. One of the Poshmark bundles I've been rolling my eyes at the hot takes on various platforms about upcoming fashion trends. Some of us who wear ratty pjs all day when no one's watching AND don heels and bling when we feel like turning heads do so with no one's permission and nary a pang of existential torment. FFS.

One of the Poshmark bundles included hearts and other shapes cut out of a variety of publications, including The Hobbit; a multilingual census or healthcare help line handout; a twentieth-century novel involving typewriters, trains, and failed love; a handwritten flyer seeking a renter; and a Phinney Center newsletter. I don't quite know what (if anything) to make of it, but it certainly raised the week's surrealism quotient. This entry was originally posted at https://zirconium.dreamwidth.org/174087.html.

Teaser Audio Clip for THROUGH THE LAST DOOR


[info]rushlight
Sharing a teaser clip from the soon-to-be-released audiobook for my m/m fantasy novel Through the Last Door, narrated by the super-talented Dan Calley. Hopefully it will be just a couple more weeks before it's available, depending on how long it takes to get through the QR process on ACX. I can't wait to be able to share it with all of you!!! 🥰

Just in case the clip doesn't play for you, here is a direct link to the video.

Almost there! :D


[info]rushlight
I just finished listening to the final chapter recordings for my m/m fantasy novel, Through the Last Door. Dan Calley's narration is absolutely amazing! Hiring a professional voice actor for the narration was definitely a choice I don't regret. His voice is completely absorbing to listen to, and the way he brings the characters and scenes to life is absolutely amazing. It's been an incredible and slightly surreal experience to hear my characters and scenes brought to life like this, and in such a brilliant and beautiful way. I'm so very excited about it. :D

Now we're moving into the production phase. This part will likely take a few weeks, depending on how long it takes ACX to approve the final audio files. I'm hoping it won't be very long. The audiobook will be available very soon!!

Book Cover and Promotional Design


[info]rushlight
Over the past few years, I've begun designing my own covers and promo graphics for the books I've been writing. It's something I really enjoy doing! I love the creativity of trying to capture the atmosphere and theme of a book in visual form. The more I work with these kinds of images, the more I find myself loving it.

From conversations I've been having with other authors, not everyone feels comfortable designing their own graphics for the books they write. So I'm extending an offer to create book covers and/or promo graphics for my fellow authors (and other creative types!). I'm really excited about this, and I'm looking forward to seeing what we can come up with for your visual designs together. ♥

Here are some examples of the promotional graphics I've created. You can click on the images to see a larger version of them:



There are more samples on my Graphics Design webpage here:

http://jajaken.com/design.html


The fee I'm charging is US$25 per cover design, plus the cost of whatever paid stock images you decide to include. The price includes both an e-book cover and promotional graphics for your book.

If you're interested in starting a graphics project, send me an email at jajakenfiction@gmail.com and let me know what kind of design you're looking for! :)

calls for entries


[info]bronze_ribbons
Due by noon EDT on Monday 5 April: NPR is collaging a poem about anti-Asian racism, with lines from submitted list poems: https://www.npr.org/2021/03/31/981147280/poetry-challenge-create-a-list-poem-that-grapples-with-rise-of-anti-asian-racism?mc_cid=11f49db1e3&mc_eid=2302726d91

(A short poem mentioned in the call is Emily Jungmin Moon's "Between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice, Today," which is worth your time.)

There is a $3 fee.



Easter lunch with the in-laws featured ham with raisin sauce, brie on jalapeno cheese crackers, and other goodies. I brought two sparkling wines. I admit to picking up the Carolina Gatti Ratatuja mainly because the label amused me (see https://www.wine-searcher.com/find/carolina+gatti+ratatuja+pet+nat+veneto+italy), but it also turned out to be interesting, in a less filtered, more flavor way.


My plans for the afternoon had included a virtual dance party and some soil prep, but I instead sacked out for four hours, and in a minute I'm going to heed my body's call for yet more sleep instead of staying up with proofs and spreadsheets. But I did fit in a bit of twirling on my own before my tomato salad and tulsi tea:


Why yes, trying to remember combinations is like patting one's head and belly at the same time . . .
