A special sneak preview of Between Bloody Lips



Hello, my loves.

I'm here today to give you a little special something. I know that a lot of people have contacted me recently about the sequel to On Hands and Knees, which is titled Between Bloody Lips.

I've been working hard at this new and upcoming release, and have been patiently waiting for the perfect time to drop it. I think now might be the best time, since we are now officially a less than two months out.

So, I'd like to offer the prologue to you. I hope that it is… Enlightening.

(Note: this is likely to slightly change over the coming weeks after my editor has a go at it.) 


Professional Writing vs. Fandom Writing

I've been writing in fandom for just as long as I've been writing original fiction, and I have a deep love for both. However, there is a big difference between the two and how to deal with fans, and it's something that I'm constantly working to striking a balance between.

In fandom, participation with your readers is vital—you survive in fandom by writing fic, commenting on fic, and commenting on those who comment on your fic. It's a circle that only works because there is a mutual emotional connection between reader and writer, because inversely we are the writers and readers, too.

With professional writing, there is a gap between readers and writers, one that is more important. We can't comment on readers reviews because it looks like we're imposing ourselves on them, trying to influence them. We are expected to keep a much further balance than anything with fandom because, in the end, this is a business.

And that can be really hard for someone who has such a long history in fandom. It goes against everything I've learned to stay silent about reviews, mostly because not responding is what is expected of me. It doesn't matter if it's positive or negative, I just need to pretend they don't exist.

I'm not going to lie—it is rough, but I'm learning. It's a learning curve, and I just hope I don't make any mistakes.

Anyway, more of "Between Bloody Lips" is written, and I'm beginning to feel more confident about what will happen in this story and into the future. There are going to be a lot of things opening in his book; an entire world will begin to show its head, and the plot will become so much deeper.

This story can undoubtedly continue on for a dozen books with what Book 2 opens up, and I just hope that my readers will enjoy it.

"Between Bloody Lips" will be released on May 11th, 2019. Make sure to preorder your copy today!



Between Bloody Lips

I've been hard at work with the next novel in The Valentino Family, titled "Between Bloody Lips". It's been an interesting challenge because of everything going on with the characters—I'll be honest, I wrote this novel three times now, trying to make it come out perfectly.

That's what happens as an author, sometimes. You can sit and sit and overthink, when the reality is that the story you wanted to tell was with you all along. I wouldn't say it's been easy, but it's important to experience things like this. It's a good way of learning my boundaries and my limits.

Either way, it's going well and I hope that you guys will be able to enjoy it on release—May 11th, 2019.

It's just around the corner.

 Between Bloody Lips, Sai Fox

Thinking

I've been thinking a lot lately about writing.

I've been writing for over fifteen years. I started when I was a kid, making bad Harry Potter and Final Fantasy fan fics, and I look back on that time with no small amount of pride. I grew up in such a perfect was, cultivated by some of the most amazing and transformative works.

I still consider fandom to be my first true love, what really showed me that writing was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

But, I digress. Honestly, I'm writing this right now because I'm procrastinating like a monster and don't want to finish the last two chapters of "On Hands and Knees."

Anyway, thank you those who read my rambling.

The Princess


"I may not have a crown, but I am still a queen. I will bend my neck for no one."
A dark, powerful, sensual story about the birth of a Queen from the ashes of annihilation.

The Kingdom of Archimes has fallen, its technology destroyed and land left barren, leaving the only living members of the royal family caught under the thumb of their new tyrannical King. 

Former Princess Lucrecia Archimes has been stripped of her family, her kingdom, her title, and her dignity. Promised to King Matis in exchange for the life of her youngest brother— a price she is willing to pay, though her stomach curdles at the thought of his hands on her and his child growing inside her— Lucrecia wonders how long she can last locked inside the prison she once called home.

But the bars on her cage are shaken when Leo Vincit, King Matis’s trusted knight, bends his branded neck to her. Who is he? And why does he call her his Queen?

Lucrecia must learn what true power is— in more ways than one— and her loyal knight is more than willing to help.

Long live the Queen.


First Post

First off, thank you guys for joining me on this adventure.

I don't really know what to say. I am nervous, a little scared, but really excited to see what the future unfolds.

I've finished up with reviewing the manuscript for The Princess again, and I like to think that it's ready. I know that as a writer, that is really difficult. Nothing will ever be really "Ready". I'm going to nitpick it to death, and then nothing will ever be done, ever.

Because of that, I've just decided that it is time. It's been combed for typos, gussied up and is ready for the public.

I can only say that I hope you guys are along for the ride with me and Lucrecia, as we explore this wonderful world of publishing together.
