Many thanks to Alex Whitehall for donating ebook copies ofÂ Mark of the Familiar, plus the forthcoming sequel, Gift of the Familiar, for a lucky commenter to win! Gift of the Familiar will be released by Storm Moon Press on December 13.
Ellis, having killed his abusive master, is placed in the custody of a safe house for magical beings. Within those brick walls,Â he finds more than safety. But William has dealt with people’s unwanted attentions his entire life and wants nothing to do with Ellis or his devotion. Except Ellis is determined to convince William that their bond is more than just skin deep and that together they can make something magical.
This story was previously released as part of the Written in Flesh anthology.
In Gift of the Familiar, Ellis and William have found their happy ever after in each other’s arms. But that doesn’t mean they can’t keep life – and love – interesting. As they celebrate First Day together, Ellis learns the origins of the day and of his people. In the spirit of the holiday, William gives Ellis a length of rope to further explore the boundaries of their relationship. In return, Ellis does his best to show he understands exactly what giving, and submitting, are all about.
This story was previously released as part of the Milk and Cookies and Handcuffs anthology.
Alex Whitehall may have grown up, but still wants to believe in magicâ€”fairies, wishes, and things that go bump in the night – as long as it has a happy ending. Since none of that seems to exist in real life, Alex creates make-believe worlds where suffering is stopped, passions never cool, and the leads always end up happier than they started.
When not writing, reading, riding horses, working, running, reading, working and being social, Alex is sleeping.
