Not Like Them is Twisted Jinx Book Two. It deals with my desire to cut myself, my desire for people of all genders, and the process of learning to forgive those who hurt me. It’s got a lot more sex in it than most of my works, contrasting the varying attitudes I had towards it: on the one hand trying to give violators what they wanted because I thought it would keep me safe and on the other hand embracing my love for the human body and the soul behind it.
In some ways it’s one of my darker works: dealing with violent rape and assault by intimate partners, trying to own your lover, self-harm, and the darker sides of pregnancy and fertility. It’s also one of the most hopeful in that it deals with coming out in so many ways, being honest with the people you care about, self-acceptance and self-knowledge, and owning your shit. Plus, the ending is hilarious. At least I think so. Things in the cuilverse just keep getting weirder and weirder and they’ve finally touched down in my world.
So if you’re looking for a sometimes-horrifying, sometimes erotic, sometimes personal look into life as a poly bisexual, or a heteroflexible man, or a person trying to figure out just what the hell they are then I recommend it.
Here’s the official description:
“The characters return with a few more of the BTS crew to assist their Author once again as she struggles with suicidal ideation and her burgeoning bisexuality. They have warned her away from one of them in particular because something has gone wrong. One of them isn’t who he says he is and they all struggle to figure out his origins before it’s too late. Unfortunately, the Author is captured and lives through a period of time surprisingly worse than anything she’s experienced before.
Those who crossed over are hiding out while they plan a way to defeat the bad egg once and for all. They recruit the help of yet more characters and secrets about the BTS series and its origins are revealed. The Author has been rescued but it turns out she may just be a pawn for his real goal. Can they set him right before he does permanent damage?”
