I'm excited that today is the release date for Sins of Lust – available at the Cave! It's my first book with Ellora's Cave and my eleventh m/m romance!

I had fun writing this book because I created several new worlds. It was challenging but satisfying when the worlds took on a life of their own. In a sense, the setting is another character. Settings create a mood and hopefully further the story by providing the perfect backdrop for characters to interact.
For each of my stories, I create a 'style sheet'. It lists character's physical and character traits, cities, buildings, objects (like Razi-el's sword – Deofol's Bane), special place names, etc. This comes in handy if I decide to write a sequel.
Here's a sample of a few terms I created for SoL:
Deofol = ruler of the arch demons and demons
Vox Dei = God’s oracle
Vox Dia = Deofol’s oracle
Caelestia = heavenly city of archangels
Taelestia = heavenly city of angels and Protectors
Haelle = city of the arch demons
Hell = city of the demons
Protector = fallen angels that are now Protectors that protect and kill for angels
Hierarchia = God’s forum of seven councilors comprised of seven archangels.
You can see why I need a list! In my final edits I still discovered a term that was mispelled – but hopefully I caught them all
