Attention: New Release… NL Down

EDIT: Shortly after posting this, some Angels received their emails! We have a temporary fix in place and it looks like we’ll have everything squared away no later than next weekend. If you still haven’t gotten an email, we’ll check in with you next weekend to be sure. Thanks for your patience, Angels!

Hey Angels,

So for far too long there’s been an issue with the email newsletters AND because there were some internal updates on the store, we were unable to post on the blog. It was a shitstorm and I’m sorry for the radio silence.

There’s a new release – and it’s free in Angel Access! Check out Forbidden Lover from Aiden Forbes!

Paige and I are working hard to get everything fixed with the newsletter and make sure all the store updates are good.

I miss you Angels!

Stay safe, stay happy, stay gorgeous!

xoxo Alexis

New Freebie for My Angels!

The blog isn’t dead, we swear! Lana’s being extra picky about how she tells her & Aiden’s update and ok so yeah I’m being particular about my updates as well.

Dating during 2020 was like sooper weird.

But today we have a freebie for everyone. It’s a smutty little short story from the lovely Sophie Moore.

Here’s an excerpt…

When the clock struck one, I sauntered inside his office with purposeful steps. Excitement was brewing inside me, and as usual, he was a sight to behold.
I barely heard his greeting as my eyes instantly focused on his dark curls, his perfectly angled jaw, his sinful mouth and his white lab coat that deliciously covered his broad shoulders.
I thought I had prepared myself, but when those sharp green eyes turned to me, I shuddered at the pure want that went through my body.
I took a seat, and he offered me a polite smile, one that didn’t even reach his eyes. It felt off, distant, like I could only barely keep his interest, and it annoyed the hell out of me.
“How are you feeling today, Ms. Black?” He asked, his tone all professional.
“So formal, Doctor,” I said. “Haven’t we established that you should call me by my first name?”
“Well then, Evelyn.” He had the audacity to look exasperated, but the beautiful way he enunciated my name immediately made me forgive him. “This is your fifth visit this month. Tell me what new disease afflicts you.”
I reined the laugh that threatened to burst from me.
Five meetings in, how the hell isn’t he mine yet?
“It isn’t my fault that I miraculously get cured from those illnesses just five seconds before I enter your office, Doctor!” I declared rather shamelessly. “But it’s truly serious this time!”
He didn’t believe me, nevertheless, he gestured that I tell him this sickness. And I did with the most serious voice I could manage.

MEN! And New Year’s Resolutions …

Hey lovely Angels!
I’ve gotten so many emails asking when the blog is coming back. And I feel so sooper guilty because I, myself, and so many of the Angels have written blog posts and tossed them. It’s hard to write about too much when there’s not as much excitement out there.

So I told Lana that and she laughed.

Lana: Ok but have you thought about what’s been going on lately?

Alexis: Oh fuck, you’re right. You and Aiden are webcam married-

Lana: Don’t say it like that-

Alexis: Point to the part where I’m wrong?

Lana: Wellllllll I mean not literally married.

Alexis: True.

Lana: And you’re spending hours on the phone with him again.

Alexis:  TRUE.

Lana: You’re going to tease readers with this, aren’t you?


LOL it wouldn’t be me on the blog if there wasn’t an Alexis cliffhanger, yet?
We’ll talk more about who I spend my non work time with… you can guess (please do) buuuuuttttt first let’s talk new years resolutions.

I’m starting keto again. I’ve been working out a shit ton though it has been hard as hell to get workout equipment. I think my most intimate relationship right now is with my kettle ball (I cannot get dumbbells to save my life right. Someone tried to get me to pay $1,700 for a set of four that were silicone, like if I was getting silicone something and dropping money on it, we all know it would be tatas…. But I’m happy with my tatas and my kettle bell LOL
I kept cheating because I love fast food, but I’m determined to do dirty keto.

Lana says that I have to think about more than carbs and only do healthy fats as much as possible and keep my sodium low. Because I’d like to live longer too I am going to attempt this as well. Beyond burgers from Carl’s Junior are like a major part of my diet now. Their fat is from coconut oil. I also am so Californian that I am living on avocados so there’s that. 

Anyone doing keto, and specifically dirty keto?
Anyone got diet goals?
Let’s hear ‘em! I wanna root for each other babes!

I’m also trying something that Daphne got me into… I’m making legit photo albums of my memories instead of just having stuff on my phone.

And … I already gave up on my other new years resolution, really, I know.

But I just can’t get into meditation. I think it’s too dang hard to try to think about nothing??? And guided meditations get on my nerves lol. I think I just give up on that.

What’s your new year’s resolutions?
And what have you been doing during this year?
Missed you all so much babes!

So the sky is orange but…the website is getting upgraded!

Hey Angels,
The site has been dragging ass lately, to borrow a southern phrase from Lana (I think that is southern, right?) butttt there will be a big upgrade coming!
Here is San Francisco the sky has been orange. My phone camera keeps autocorrecting it so I can’t show a picture but they’re all over the news!
I keep telling my parents in Fresno to stop gardening because the air is so toxic!
We’ve been getting these huge headaches and it put a damper on our book releases but new stories are coming after our upgrade this week.

Thanks for your patience Angels and I hope you’re staying safe

Things We Learned During Quarantine

Hey Angels!

I’m so glad the blog is back! We’ve totally realized a few things while it was out during this time. 1) We are so totally just a bunch of over-sharers lol. Without being able to share to people we don’t know what to do with ourselves. I mean Lana and I are telling each other things that we went through and we’re like we already knew this and then realizing that we need to tell the blog so that we can actually tell someone.

Number 2 thing that we realized is this. If you have sex with someone at work, you need to be able to laugh about it together before you either do it again or not do it again. So we had some really dirty escapades between Lana and Daphne and me. It was pretty hot. But at first we were like uhmm do we say anything more about this? And then Jose Cuervo decided to invite us for a party and we did shots of tequila (because what else is there to do during quarantine) and we started laughing about it and having fun and things became a lot more chill.

Number 3 thing that we learned. Working remotely sucks when you’re used to collaborating. That’s right. Working from home is fun and all if you’re like okay I don’t have to wear pants but a part of our fun doing the store is that for example I get to help one of the girls with her makeup and maybe they want to borrow something from my closet. So until we all moved into the same building that was totally not doable and now it’s a lot of fun.

Number 4 thing we learned is kinda clutch. And that is when you work with your friends sometimes you’re not really working at all but getting things done because you’re just having a lot of fun. As long as everyone is picking up their weight and there are clear lines of command it’s a lot of fun. What we do is have clear lines of command for certain aspects of the store.

Number 5 thing we learned. Quarantine was a great time to get in shape. All put together, I think we’ve gotten really fit all around. For me, I’ve quit vaping. I don’t smoke anymore. I just stick to alcohol lol. But the cravings are really gone and that’s because I work out twice a day now lol. I’m so into feeling the tiredness in my body that I can’t think of smoking. I guess that’s a good thing considering a respiratory illness is haunting the whole world.

So that is just a small number of the things I have learned. Tell me what you’ve learned during the March to July period that the blog was on hiatus?

After A Four Month Hiatus, The Blog Is Back!

Hey Angels,

This is really a short post. But we’ve finally gotten everything worked out to be able to bring the store back from the bodyblow it took when we had to deal with everything thats been going on for the last few months.

We’ve had a journey, that’s for sure, but one thing I think can be safely attested to and that is that the store is stronger now than it was before.

Look for some exciting things in the next few weeks and months – to take our minds off of the world spinning out of control lol!

Whoops…We’re Here!

For a brief period of time this morning (on the West Coast, your afternoon on the East Coast!) our site was down. Our servers literally overloaded because of the sheer number of readers. Sorry about that.

We’ve upgraded our server power, Paige took care of everything – sorry about that.

Hope everyone is staying safe. Welcome to all the new Angels who have sent us emails and commented, thank you. We’re so happy to be part of your day during this tough time.

Lana won’t stop baking and canning (I had no idea it wasn’t just as simple as putting stuff in a can. She said something about me being a wicked city woman and laughed) but I’m borrowing the oven for two hours to dry some fresh mint that a neighbor brought over since they grow a ton and Google says drying at 180 degrees in the oven for two hours is good. So Lana is zesting lemons and making batter and like watching my timer cooper close haha.

Are you cooking a lot? Lana’s insisted that I learn more and I had dabbled in the past but she likes really knows stuff and has been teaching me. It’s been a great way to spend time together and talk about story ideas.

Last night we even used some canned extra thick coconut cream and made Pina coladas and talked about what to write next while we played Chess. Lana had never played before so I got to teach her something too!

I’m lucky to have her as a roommate and best friend, for sure.

Stay Safe Angels, hugs and kisses and lots of love!

Light In Darkness

Hey Angels!

So the store had an update yesterday but in the middle of it all, I guess in the last two weeks the world has changed?

At first we were just as scared as everyone else. 

But we got a bunch of emails that kept saying the following. 

This blog and our books provided them the strength to go on. 

That it allowed them the ability to smile for a little bit in the middle of anxiety and worry about the world and their loved ones. 

So we’ve resolved a few things. 

We’re going to make sure the blog keeps going to provide you guys the ability to smile or escape for a little bit. 

We will keep the light on. And try to help with everyone else guide all of us through the darkness. 

Stay safe Angels!

Got a call from another publisher…weird!

Hey Angels,

We had a few more kinks that needed a little ironing out on the site but we are like legit back up and running now.

But something weird happened. This NY publisher I knew back in my Wall Street days called me and offered me a bunch of money to basically close my store down and so they could have like the rights to my books, and said I should talk to the other store offers.

Wow. First Amazon doesn’t want me, then this big publisher wants me to close my store…I mean so they can pub me but still.

Alexis Angel doesn’t need some man…ahem yes he’s an acquisitions editor for a big pub…to like swoop in and his words

“take care of everything”

Like I thought he was going to tell me that I didn’t have to worry my pretty little head in a minute.

Didn’t he realize yesterday was international women’s day too like dude bad timing.

anyway I don’t ever want to leave you Angels and give up control of what I publish and talking to my readers. He had a lot of nerve to think I needed him.

We’re doing just fine, aren’t we?

I mean, I know the store is always growing and improving, but the answer isn’t to just let someone else take charge.

We’re a team. I of course told all the Angels and all anyone had to say was, heck noooooo this is our baby!

So yeah I was polite but firm. I’ll stick to my store, my rules.

That’s how it’s gotta be sometimes, ya know?

Happy Moanday Angels!

lol oh and when the conversation was over, about the publishing thing, he asked me what panties I was wearing. I was like, wouldn’t you like to know, and then hung up lol!!!!
