• Let’s not Nano…

    Yes, let’s not Nano at all. So tomorrow is November 1st, and thus the beginning of Nano.  For the uninitiated, Nano is an online writing circle, which aims to push participants to write 50K in one month. With the best of intentions, I signed up, but you know what?  I’m not even going to try… Let’s count the reasons: 1.  My brain is still broken.  I’ve been working on my WIP for FIVE FUCKING MONTHS and it’s still a piece of shit. Literally five months – the document was created 29 May, and I only have 52K words, and it’s 52K of meaningless, incoherent, unfinished drivel. I’m not even kidding.…

  • Five minutes with Annabelle Jacobs!

      Tell us about you. I’m a wife, mother, and if I had my way I’d have a houseful of cats too. What do you love about writing? I love the freedom to create my own worlds and my own characters. That’s why I love writing fantasy and paranormal stories. You can choose to write about anything you like and just let your imagination run wild. Biggest pet peeve about writing? That I can’t get my ideas out fast enough. I have lots of stories floating around in my head, just waiting to be written, and I really wish I could write faster. I want to be writing all of…

  • Five minutes with Jay Northcote

    Five minutes with Jay Northcote When did you start writing? I used to like writing stories when I was a kid, but then I lost the habit as a teen and didn’t write any fiction for years. I rediscovered the joy of it when I started writing fanfiction as a hobby a few years ago, then I got hooked.  What do you love about writing? I think my favourite part of writing is when I get into that kind of writing trance where the words are just falling out of my head onto the page almost faster than my fingers can type, and the story is just flowing. I’m almost…

  • Breaking Point excerpt

    I walked downstairs to find Kira cleaning up and putting things away. He wouldn’t look at me. “You sleep okay?” I nodded. “Yeah. You?” He didn’t answer. “We need to head back this morning,” he said instead. “I have to work tonight.” “Okay,” I said, turning around. “I’ll just go pack my things.” “You can have some breakfast first,” he said. He looked at me then. “Your eye looks better.” I shrugged. “I wouldn’t know. I haven’t seen it.” “You haven’t looked at it, at all?” I shook my head. “No.” I scratched my not-sore cheek through the four-day grown stubble. “I haven’t been game enough to shave, so I…

  • Covers with new logo!

    So Total E-bound has had a makeover.  Now known as Totally Bound (see what they did there? lol)  and the new site looks fabulous, (see it HERE!) but we also got updated covers with the new logo!!  Aren’t they just soooo pretty?   Breaking Point is due for pre-release 25 October, from the Totally Bound site before a general release of 22 November.  Clarity of Lines is due for pre-release 13 December, from the Totally Bound site, and has a general release date of 10 January 2014. 

  • Breaking Point excerpt and buy links!

    Excerpt (As seen on Totally Bound site HERE <– click on the link)  It was a usual Friday night at the bar. Except it wasn’t. My partners Mitch, Kurt and Tony were there with me. My boyfriend Kira was there too, along with my boss, Berkman, and most of the guys from my division. There were celebratory drinks, a tab on the bar and congratulations all round. I should have been happy. And part of me was. But part of me wasn’t. The smile on my face and laughs with the boys didn’t quite sit right, but the more I had to drink, the easier it got. “Here it is!” someone…

  • Breaking Point, expectations and the opposite of fluff

    Are you ready? In less than two weeks, Breaking Point will be available for pre-release purchase from the TEB site. Which means you can buy it there, to read immediately, four weeks before it becomes available on other sites like Amazon.  Yes,  I’ve had a few releases. The nerves and anxiety do get a little easier with each one, but I doubt the trepidation of putting myself out there will ever fade completely. To be honest, I don’t want it to.   But this one is different. I’ve NEVER been this nervous about a release.  Will it be good enough? Will I do Point of No Return justice by continuing…

  • Oz M/M Meet 2013

    SYDNEY 11-13th OCTOBER In just four days, Sydney is hosting the very first Oz MM Meet!!! Some very amazing people have been incredibly busy organising this event, and I can’t even begin to imagine the time and effort they’ve put into making what I’m sure will be a stellar weekend. Now Australia is a big-ass country, and  people are travelling from all over – even New Zealand and the UK – for this meet, and it’s going to be amazing! I’m so excited to be going!   I’m also ridiculously nervous.   Up until now, I’ve kinda flown under the radar, and I’ve never posted a pic of myself online.…
