Hey guys, I just released a new ebook on Kindle/ Amazon. It’s titled The Prince and the Magician.

It’s an original, LGBTQ fairy tale:

“ ‘Love is simply politics.’

A fact his father takes to heart… and expects Prince Amadeus to do as well. Yet when Amadeus meets his betrothed, Princess Isela, he cannot help but wonder if that is all that love is about.

As the days go by and the wedding grows closer, Amadeus feels that perhaps his father is right. Just when he is ready to give up, he meets someone who changes everything he knows about love: Cal, the Magician.

Now, Prince Amadeus and Cal must fight so that they can be together. Will they win against those who will stop at nothing to make sure the marriage goes through?”

A few things I think people might like:
-Princess Isela is a lesbian and her story also plays a part.
-Cal is a from New Spain, aka one of the first mestizo Mexicans.
-Part of Amadeus’ struggle is dealing with his Catholic background and his gay identity during the Renaissance.

I’m a Mexican author trying to contribute to a nonexistent genre (LGBTQ fantasy). Support would be greatly appreciated not only for me, but to get more stories like this out there.

It’s available as an ebook on Kindle and I’ll have it up for paperback soon as well.

anonymous asked:

Having seen the play, i'm surprised how much hate CC receives. I think people had their own headcanons that CC didn't follow or is just hate for the sake of hate like it happens with many things in social media. Or is because it's not the same reading the script and watching the play. Anyway, I have a question for you. The only part that i never expected was JKR giving Draco a somehow redemption storyline. (1)

           She was very adamant in the past to keep telling people (mainly teen girls) that they shouldn’t romanticized him and it’s unhealthy to believe that a special girl is going to change him. Then CC comes and she does exactly that. She gives him a sad storyline with his sick wife that made him a better person, an excuse for his past actions (if you’re alone you can go dark) and even uses Cedric to prove that anyone could be like Draco and in the end she makes him a part of the group.(2)      

This is exactly what she stood against for many years. Do you think she just gave up trying and gave Draco fans what they always wanted? I’m not asking if you agree with Draco’s storyline or not, that’s irrelevant. I’m asking why you think JKR did something that contradicts all her past comments about Draco. Sorry for the 3 part message.            


I agree about your reasons for people being negative about CC, headcanons, the same hate for hate’s sake that’s always been a big part of fandom. (Back when I was on livejournal I started a community where members were meant to be positive about Harry Potter and people freaked out. Like, all of fandom wasn’t big enough for them, then needed to infiltrate my one little community with their Slytherin appologist/anti-JKR/anti-Gryffindor nonsense as well.)

ANYWAY,

It is really funny about Draco, isn’t it? I was honest to god shocked, but in a really good way. I 100% agree with JKR about people needing to take a step back and look at book Draco for who he really was. (And it wasn’t just teens, it’s adult women in their 30s and 40s too. I just think JKR couldn’t imagine that she’d have to point out to grown women that a racist, over-entitled bully might not be the best character to romanticise.) The reaction to her Pottermore post on Draco was fucking ridiculous and left me embarrassed to be part of Drarry fandom.  Develop your own headcanon if you like, but then don’t blame JKR when she reminds you that it’s a headcanon and that Draco wasn’t that much of a sweetheart in the books.

The Pottermore article does say that he changed after the war and refused to “follow the same old pure-blood line”. And the idea that Astoria supported the softening of Draco’s bigotry also comes directly from JKR in the Pottermore article: “Astoria refused to raise their grandson Scorpius in the belief that Muggles were scum, family gatherings were often fraught with tension.” So she never said that we were meant to view him as Lucius 2. She also says that he was in a large part the result of his upbringing. That’s not just in the play.

Also this: “I see in his hobbies further confirmation of his dual nature. The collection of Dark artefacts harks back to family history, even though he keeps them in glass cases and does not use them. However, his strange interest in alchemical manuscripts, from which he never attempts to make a Philosopher’s Stone, hints at a wish for something other than wealth, perhaps even the wish to be a better man. I have high hopes that he will raise Scorpius to be a much kinder and more tolerant Malfoy than he was in his own youth.“ & “There is, after all - and at the risk of re-kindling unhealthy fantasies - some unextinguished good at the heart of Draco.“

So JKR was never insistent that Draco was irredeemably bad or dark-hearted. The man we see in the play doesn’t really contradict anything she’s previously said. (Draco does become friends with Harry, kind-of-a-little-bit, but they aren’t best friends.)

That said, I also think there was an element of giving Draco fans what they’d always wanted. She’s incredibly giving that way, despite all the neverending shit she gets from fandomers. There are a lot of things in the play that feel like gifts to me: The “Ron and Hermione are in love in every reality” thread felt like an apology for the Wonderland interview. Harry’s journey felt like a response to all the people who complained that Harry didn’t show enough evidence of trauma. Harry’s conversation with Dumbledore was something a lot of people needed to see. And the friendship between Albus and Scorpius was something I think a whole, whole lot of us hoped for.

My novel is available now on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited!


Talia Winterborn wore a wedding gown, but she felt like she was going to her funeral.  Today, she was being sent as a sacrificial bride for Vayn the Dragon God - in hopes he would end the merciless heatwave devastating her country.

Vayn is cold, arrogant, and frighteningly beautiful.  It’s a mystery to all why he has chosen to lock himself away in his castle for the past decade, but Talia is determined to uncover his secrets.

However, that means playing at the politics of the Gods.  Casual treason and shameless backstabbing are common amongst the pantheon at the City of the Gods, and among the most ruthless is Kayn, Vayn’s twin brother.  Talia must choose her alliances carefully in this new world.

As threats loom around them, can Talia be any help to the Dragon God she was sent to marry?  Can a human make any difference in a world of Gods?

We fight for others, for life, for our comrades. Remember that, when things grow grim. Remember that, when you become weary. No god can make you stand in a place of harm if you choose not to; but the bonds of fellowship have kept many a fighter from running when his heart was filled with fear.
