The short stories I've written as prologues to the House of Silence series are now being serialized on the Forbidden Fiction website. These are a series of snapshots detailing the boys' initial meeting with Charon, and some of their earliest experiences inside the House.

Tam's story is up now for reading:

An excerpt from Vincent's story is up now as well:
http://forbiddenfiction.com/chapter/jaj-1-000057-00/

If you'd like information on the entire anthology of prequel stories, you can find that on my website here:
http://jajaken.com/shortstories/enteringthehos.htm

I believe the plan is to start serializing The House of Silence 3: Consort in May.

I really enjoyed writing in this universe and fell in love with each one of the characters there. It's been a lot of fun taking a look at these stories again. ^_^

Happy reading! :)

My m/m fantasy novel EATER OF DREAMS is almost ready to be released! This is the sequel to my previous fantasy novel, THROUGH THE LAST DOOR, although the new book has been written to stand on its own if you haven't had a chance to read the first one. The book details are up on my website here:

http://jajaken.com/novels/eaterofdreams.htm

Summary: Kaori Sansa has uncovered the truth about Shinja, the Sacred Guardian of Kazure, but the country he is sworn to protect is far from secure. War presses hard from the east, and unrest from within Kazure's borders threatens to undermine what little control he has managed to gain over his subjects. Furthermore, there are those who question his choice in pursuing a relationship with Hunter--quite possibly even those who are closest to him, and whom he has most come to depend upon. Will he find a way to sort through the miasma of lies, violence, and political entanglements that surround him in order to save the country he loves, yet somehow remain true to his own heart?

All of the former chapters are still posted there, so you can get caught up if you haven't had a chance to read the story yet.

Happy reading! :)


Summary: Cedric de Breos was an average son from an average farmer’s family before he was chosen -- by royal decree -- to befriend Alain Tomolia, the solemn and enigmatic crown prince of Dunn. As Cedric dutifully pursues their strange friendship, he begins to suspect that Alain is haunted by a dark secret, one which has its roots sunk deep in the crown prince’s past. Cedric’s situation is complicated by the gradual realization that his intended purpose is not only to serve as companion to the crown prince but also as his surrogate in the whipping yard, taking the punishment for Alain’s misdeeds. Will Cedric find a way to come to terms with the resentment, pity, curiosity, and reluctant attraction he feels toward the crown prince, or will he allow the circumstances around them to command their fate?

Just over a year and a half ago my m/m fantasy adventure novel Through the Last Door was published. It tells the story of a young man named Kaori Sansa who is forced to assume his country's throne, only to find himself faced with numerous challenges including a brewing war, internal corruption, personal entanglements, and an unexpected romance. In the process of writing the story I created a number of characters that I fell head over heels in love with, and while TtLD stands well enough on its own as a completed story, I have always felt the urge to travel further with these characters and see where they might lead me.

I am happy to announce that the sequel is nearly ready for publication! The title of the new book is Eater of Dreams. It is 122,000 words long and continues the adventures of Kaori, Hunter, and the rest of his friends as they fight to defend the country of Kazure, and each other. There is a cover being made for it now, which I will share once I get a completed version. I'm planning to have the book available within the next month or two.

If you haven't read the first book and would like to, you can find it in both ebook and paperback versions on Amazon here:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00R3TETGC

Thank you to everyone who has encouraged my writing over the years! I couldn't have done this without you. :)
