ANGELS CRY is technically a WIP, which I started about two seconds when I was done with Angels Prey. Long story short, a bunch of stuff happened, here we are about five years later, and if I didn’t find some way to get back into putting my stuff “out there” I wasn’t GOING to. This is for the readers who have asked me for more about my naughty angels and their not-so-innocent concubine on their metaphysical journey which is mostly an excuse for a lot of naughty sex and inappropriate humor. So I came up with the idea of “Sweetbytes,” which are installments of 3,000-5,000 words going towards the 50,000 words that Angels Cry is supposed to be. Seeing as I came up with pages of drafting, worldbuilding, et al, I’m hoping to make this come together, so to speak. The story picks up RIGHT where Angels’ Prey left off. Here’s your blurbie:
There Is No Time In Lyricania
It was only yesterday when Clarice Larrabee discovered she was a flesh-and-blood embodiment of the legendary Philosopher’s Stone. Imprisoned at the Holy Order of Saint Anne’s convent, Clarice encountered two angels from a realm called Lyricania. Angel Jabazael: a spirit of light. Daemon Maelfar: a spirit of darkness. They beckoned Clarice to return with them and restore order to a universe of chaos. Naturally, the only way to ignite Clarice’s power was through a ceremony of erotic pleasure, when the three bonded as a trinity of power. Through their loving ritual, history has been rewritten.
Clarice is now immortal. Her fate and mission? Creating harmony from disorder, peace from war, love from hate. She is the bridge connecting the planes of physical and spiritual. All that is seen and unseen.
But there is a whole world to discover. Lyricania is not the paradise Clarice imagined. Is Jabazael the holy creature who stole her heart, or does he have a dark past which led to his silence? Is Maelfar just a wisecracking daemon, or is there a vulnerability deeper than his unquenchable desire? Where do heaven and earth meet in the middle? And is this only her story to tell?
In Sweetbyte One: New Shores, we join Clarice, Jabazael, and Maelfar on an erotic morning of recovery from the intense transformation they shared on that fateful night in Victorian England. We share a new journey from above, beyond, underneath, and behind. Sweetbyte One is the first installment from Vivacia K. Ahwen’s ANGELS CRY. Chapters will be serial-released over the next several months for your quick reading pleasure. When you only have a minute to spare? Grab a Sweetbyte.
Angels Cry: Book II of The Dark Alchemy Series
There is no light without darkness. There is no pleasure without pain.
Sweetbytes will always and forever be 99 cents a pop, because, I mean, they’re 15-20 pages. Except this weekend there has GOT to be a release giveaway, because that’s how Vivacia K. Ahwen rolls! Load up your Kindle on Saturday/Sunday (and I think I may have filled out the thingy wrong so you can try Monday, as well) to enjoy some paranormal sex on the beach. Oh, yes! Forgot to mention Sweetbytes will likely have at least one sex scene in them, or at least some “action,” and ALWAYS some romantic/sexual tension. I’ll give the heat factor on a scale of 1-5 Hershey’s Kisses. Angels Cry gets five of those sweet morsels.
Here’s a link to get your free copy!
This vignette will make absolutely no sense unless you’ve read ANGELS’ PREY, so there needs to be an Angels’ Prey giveaway as well, just to keep new readers up to speed. Same bat time, same bat place. Saturday, Sunday, and (I think) into Monday. All for your reading pleasure….and PAIN!
Though I’ve posted Amazon US links (most of my followers are in the States, it’s obviously available worldwide. Maybe it’s because Reaching Lily was HarperCollins UK, but you guys seem to like me there, so please grab a copy! And one for your friend. There’s some kind of “sharing” program I agreed to, so I think that means everybody gets a late winter present.
Have a happy weekend of supernatural McLovin’! Angels Cry is more MMF, shape-shifting, time-travel, mild BDSM, and psychological mindgames. So…know that going in. That thar’s my trigger warning!
Good evening, Angels…
[“GOOD EVENING, CHARLIE!”]
I hope you took advantage of the freebie Angels’ Prey flight of fancy. As I mentioned before, I’ve put erotica on the back shelf for awhile, but may return to it with enough encouragement. A handful of folks have asked me to get back to the Dark Alchemy chronicles, and I was thinking of writing a series of novelettes (7,500-17,500 words), keeping the price of each at 99 cents. Since I’m interested in switching point-of-views, I’d be moving from the first person narrative of Angels’ Prey to the third person. This goes against current erotica trends, but I’ve never been one to follow trends, so….
…if you did read/enjoy Angels’ Prey, please leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. If you read/did NOT enjoy Angels’ Prey, please leave a review, as well. I’m interested in what you have to say. (Unless you’re a troll. Then I don’t give a rat’s ass.) If it looks like there’s an audience, I’ll bring you more naughty fun with Clarice, Jabazael, and Maelfar. Not to mention a host of other angels, daemons, and extraordinary humans who are ready to get tangled up in the wars of the spirit and physical worlds. Plus have XXX-rated romps. I aim to please.
P.S. If you didn’t get a chance to grab Angels’ Prey, here’s the handy link to Amazon:
Okay, now that we got This Guy out of the way….
Look, it was on “stock photos” on Google Images for “trashy angels.” Since the gettyimages tag is still on it makes me think there’s a copyright involved which I’m violating. In which case, may the owner of this photo please contact me so that I can remove it at once. Apparently, there are tons of Trashy Angels available, but this fella fit the bill. He’s buyin’ what I’m sellin’!
It’s Getcher-Freak-On-Friday! On a whim, I decided to revive this ol’ chestnut, previously published by Noble Romance (that now-defunct indie company wrought with scandal and corruption) under my own “publishing company.” [I call said press “Ahwenterprises, LLC…” which is a self-pleasuring way of saying KDP.] Here’s the original blurbie:
ONE WAS NEVER ENOUGH
Clarice Larrabee’s scandalous dalliances as a maid in the Oakesdale estate have her expelled to the Holy Order of St Anne for a life of celibacy and repentance. Lord Frothingham’s calculated seduction and Clarice’s romance with his handsome son George led to her social and spiritual ruin, leaving her heartbroken, scorned, and bereft. There is no place in Victorian English society for a love so passionate, nor a will so bold, nor a mind so bright as Clarice Larrabee, who now dedicates herself to the convent, praying with all her might for redemption. Yet how long can she run from her true nature?
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF
An amorous visitation from an Angel named Jabazael reawakens the sensual side of Clarice, from which there is no turning back. After a night of wanton lust in the arms of this powerful being, she realizes her destiny is not within the confines of a manse, nor the walls of a cathedral, but in another realm altogether. After her surrender to Angel Jabazael, she encounters Daemon Maelfar, who reveals Clarice’s unique destiny as a receptacle of angelic light and diabolical darkness. But her role in the universal balance between good and evil can only begin after a ritual of erotic pleasure when both holy creatures share her body, where she submits to becoming eternally…
It’s weird, it’s wicked dirty, and it was fun as heck to write. Think of a triple-X (try MMF) comedic tribute to Victorian Gothic romance novels (of the “Dear Reader” variety), and a total parody of V.C. Andrews. But –spoiler alert– no one has sex with any siblings, cousins, or uncles. I did have fun breaking all the “Never use passive voice, adverbs, exclamation points, purple prose, em-dashes, run-on sentences, hyperbole, etc. rules.” The title and description are a bit misleading, since the majority of Clarice’ sordid tale takes place at the Oakesdale estate, and the angels are only in the first and last couple of chapters. I had every intention of turning it into a series, so it’s primarily sexy backstory.
But, as I’ve mentioned here before, I am on an erotica hiatus, until it gets to be fun, again. In my last post, I mentioned clearing the desk drawers of old work, in order to keep making room for new fiction, poetry, and art.
As with all KDP books, Angels’ Prey is available for FREEEEEEEEE with Kindle Unlimited! Periodically I’ll be doing promotional price drops, but can’t seem to figure out how that whole thing works. That may not happen for awhile, but, still…. $2.99 is way cheaper than a small pumpkin spice latte, and Angels’ Prey Porny-Purple-Prose is way more stimulating than caffeine. Not to mention way spicier than flavoured corn syrup.
In a few days, AP will also be available as a paperback, for people like me who get headaches reading e-books. Plus, it’s just aesthetically pleasing to hold a solid book in your hands, and you retain more from turning physical pages than scrolling on a screen. True story! I’ll update this with the link in the near future.
Have a lovely weekend.
