Coming Soon, JMS Trio Collection, Nell Iris' Christmas

Coming in December

On December 21, my holiday story Four Christmases will be released, and it will be a part of a JMS Trio (like In My Arms Again). I don’t have a cover or a pre-order link yet, but  I thought I’d share the blurb and a mood board instead, so you know what to expect.


Will a decade-old family feud and long held secrets stand in the way of love?

Auden Whipple is searching for a bit of peace and quiet from his loud family when he stumbles across the neighbor, Porter Eldin. Porter is scorching hot on a freezing Christmas Day, and nothing like Auden expected. A moment shared by the creek, begins a relationship that surprises them both.

As the Christmases pass, Auden and Porter’s relationship deepens. But the obstacle of the unresolved conflict between the Whipples and the Eldins makes Auden worried. Worried to tell his family of his new-found love, worried that the conflict will come between them.

Can two men truly in love help mend fences that have been broken for too long? Can the holiday spirit help Auden and Porter find their happily ever after?

Book Recommendations

Book recommendations

Instead of a full review, I’m recommending a book series today: Would It Be Okay to Love You by Amy Tasukada.


I’m one of Amy’s critique partners, and I’ve been reading her Would It Be Okay to Love You series, which has been her free newsletter story for three years, since the beginning. But something sad happened this September: Aoi and Sato’s story ended. And while I think it was the right thing for their characters, I’m still sad.

When Amy’s newsletter arrived on October 1st, suddenly the free story was about new characters. It felt so strange. Every month for the last years, I’ve gotten a chapter of Aoi and Sato’s romance in my mail box, and now…I didn’t.

When the new characters showed up, I felt like my home was invaded by strangers instead of the friends I’ve come to expect. And I don’t want people to forget about my friends, so that’s why I’m recommending Aoi and Sato’s story today. Because who wouldn’t love a fluffy romance about a robot fanboy and an erotic voice actor? I know I do. I’m all about the fluff. Also, I have a crush on Sato! He’s such a wonderfully nerdy awkward character and I adore him! 😍

Here’s the blurb to the first book so you have any idea what I’m talking about 🙂 Also, there’s no reason for you NOT to one-click the first book (link here) since it’s FREE!! As in no cost. Zero dollars. And who doesn’t like free books? 🙂

A robot fanboy. An erotic voice actor. Will their secrets overwhelm their love.

Sato doesn’t get out much. The anime company accountant spends his days at a desk and his nights working on his own small-scale robots. His geeky life is like a dream, but it has just one piece missing…

The world only knows Aoi for his moans. The erotic voice actor has legions of fangirls obsessed with his gasps of simulated ecstasy. And his new boyfriend Sato can barely handle the attention.

As Aoi’s popularity rises and secrets about his past begin to reveal themselves, can the accountant and the voice actor rise above their problems to create something real?

Year One is a short story anthology collection unlike anything you’ve ever read. If you like geeky settings, and sweet romance, then you’ll  love Amy Tasukada’s slice-of-life story.

Buy Year One and start the lighthearted love story today!

Also, why not sign up for Amy’s newsletter if you haven’t already; I’m sure I’ll learn to love Iroha and Kenta, the invading strangers, when I get to know them better 😁

About Nell


midsommar nere vid näset 1994.jpg

It’s Midsummer’s Eve 1994 and I’m 22 years old. I’m spending the day at the beach with my friends from the amateur theater group I was a part of. We’re doing typical Swedish midsummery things. Eating and drinking. Singing. But also being deep and artsy, because we were actors after all.

1994 was the year I played Titania (and Hippolyta) in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and my husband (who wasn’t my husband at the time) played Bottom. 1994 was the year me and my theater friends arranged a Shakespeare picnic by the lake; we borrowed costumes from the theater company so we could dress accordingly, and pretended we were a part of our favorite movie Much Ado About Nothing.

1994 was also the year we had a Rocks-themed party, and if you don’t know what “Rocks” is, it’s a song by Primal Scream that we loved to death. We listened to that song over and over and over again, and thought Why not have a Rocks party? We did play other songs at the party, too, but not a lot of them 🙂

In 1994 I dreamed of becoming an actor so I applied to several acting schools, but was never admitted. It was a time of happiness and friendship and immersing myself in art and theater and music and classic English literature.

That was a time that laid the foundation to who I am today. No, my dream is no longer to be an actor, but I still want to immerse myself in art and music and books. 25 years later, I’m still deep and artsy and pursue difficult dreams.

But who would we be without our dreams?

Tell me something about you from 25 years ago.

Release day: In My Arms Again, and Legendary Loves volume 2

imaa + ll v2 checkmark review quote

Trapped in a growing sense of restlessness, Oxen the hunter is lonely. Feeling like he’s waiting for something—or someone—he’s unable to focus on getting ready for winter. But when a handsome and very ill stranger collapses on his doorstep, everything changes.

The stranger, Vinge, is from a Pegasus family but has never been able to transform. As soon as he awakens, both men feel an instant connection, and it grows deeper as Oxen nurses him back to health. Something profound within each man calls out to the other, but neither of them knows what it is.

The questions surrounding Vinge and their deepening relationship are many. Why is Vinge so familiar to Oxen when they clearly have never met? Why are they both reluctant to take the first step to a real commitment?  And what will it take for the true depth of their connection be revealed?

Will facing what scares him bring to Keston’s life what it’s missing most?

Weekend at Bigfoot’s by Addison Albright: There’s nothing about perky — twinky? — Oliver Hughes that would make Sensational News’ (Never Fake! We Swear!) reporter Wilson Banks think Bigfoot actually exists. But while pursuing soundbites for a tabloid story about Bigfoot, Wilson witnesses something he wasn’t meant to see. In Wilson’s new reality, is there room for love with someone whose dreams are as big as his … er … feet?
