Meet the Twinsies from the Purple Tribe

Brynn finds herself kidnapped once again, just as she was on the verge of discovering the way back to Earth. This time, Ist’s brother has taken her, and without Zirc to come to her aid. Rumors swirl that he’s journeying to the Elders, carrying the relic he discovered when she first crashed on his planet.

Determined to liberate herself, Brynn’s path collides with the enigmatic Royal Twins, the Purple Tribe’s NimSim. Chaos reigns as she encounters the grumpy royals, igniting questions of fated mates or dungeon-bound destiny, alongside her lovers, Coone and Roqs.

Meanwhile, they, especially Roqs, are very keen to get out of the Purple Tribe. Zirc, his lover-but-not-a-mate, was also held captive by the Elders for harboring an illegal alien (aka Brynn).

Is Roqs willing to accept the help of the one person who betrayed them and the one responsible for getting them imprisoned? Will Brynn finally get a chance to return to Earth or stay with her fated mates?


Orange Mountain is a steamy, alien adventure romance that ends on a cliffhanger. It is book 4 of 6 and ends in an HEA. The planet Manasty is a male-only planet ruled by tribes, their enemies are lawless gangs. The heroine will have multiple love interests who are in relationships with each other. Please check the author’s note for more information.

๐Ÿ—“ Release Schedule for Manasty series

So, something happened when I wrote Orange Mountain. ๐Ÿ˜… Originally, this series will conclude on Book 5. Then Roqs happened. I will not spoil anything but there will definitely be Book 5 and Book 6.

Book 5 Orange Tundra (because Roqs demanded this) | Target release date: Dec 2023
Book 6 Orange Kingdom (final book of the series ๐Ÿคž) | Target release date: Mar 2024

๐Ÿ‰ Patreon Exclusive Content moving also to Ream Stories, Wattpad and Inkitt

ICYMI: I now have a Patreon Exclusive story. It is a portal fantasy romance. Although it’s Patreon exclusive (for now), I plan to offer it for sale on my website as a trial basis, with a higher price of $2.99 each. They will be available for sale a month after their initial release date on Patreon.

Thereโ€™s a total of 5 short stories (roughly 9K to 12K words). Below is the scheduled release months on Patreon and Ream.

Story 2 Cyborgs | Target release date: Sep 2023

Story 3 Monsters with tentacles | Target release date: Nov 2023

Story 4 Prison World | Target release date: Jan 2024

Story 5 Modern Day Earth | Target release date: Mar 2024

Moving forward, I’m experimenting with subscriptions. The plan is to release the rough drafts on Patreon and Ream, then eventually move them to Wattpad and Inkitt about six weeks later as free chapters. If the books will be published wide, I will retain the rough draft on these free sites (Wattpad and Inkitt). If on Kindle Unlimited (KU), these rough drafts will be unpublished a month before KU release date.

I will announce if I will place the rough drafts of books 5 and 6 of Manasty series on these subscription platforms. However, I will not place them on Wattpad or Inkitt. Only on Patreon and Ream.

In case you are wondering about Ream Stories, it is similar to Patreon but it’s a subscription platform for authors, built by authors. TL;DR: it does NOT censor romance authors. I can release explicit content without losing my account ๐Ÿ˜Š

โœ๐Ÿผ Future Works in Progress

There are two projects I’m debating which to start first for 2024. They are contemporary dark romances. One is set in academia (college), and the other involves the mafia. Both are new adult romances, and I already have outlines ready for drafting! Things are improving for me, health-wise. If they continue, my plan is to write weekly chapters and publish the rough drafts on Patreon, Ream Stories, Wattpad and Inkitt. As of this writing, I’m leaning towards the mafia story because of the grumpy/sunshine trope and more ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ scenes.

Speaking of 2024, Manasty series will continue but with a new FMC. Hint: the princess from Planet Arkun ๐Ÿ‘ธ (mentioned in the last newsletter).
