Slightly crazy author who mixes fan fiction with original stuff, plus sharing in with different universes. Has a tendency to be mean to characters. Also tends to take a while to post things, so if you don't see things updating check her blog or send her a message to see if she is still working, as she is also trying to make money at this writing thing as well.

300 Rains by Heather O'Malley at Amazon

The first 2015 publication of Doppler Press was Heather O'Malley's

51IPb4yXL5L.jpg

Geoff Greenfelder's discovery should have changed his life by rocketing him up the ladder of academia . Instead, it changed his life in ways he never could have imagined. After partaking in a sacred ceremony by the Amazonian tribe he discovered, everything in his life changes, including his very own body. What should have been an occasion for joy becomes a trauma Geoff must work through. His only hope for returning his life back to normal is finding the answers that lie in unraveling the mysteries of the tribe before he can return to it.

Book updates

I just wanted to let you all know I just put out a book called Magic for Gender Transition. In this book I talk about the many practical and interesting ways in which you can use magic, in combination with visualization and psychology to maximize your transitions. There is also a section on dealing with being Non-op, Non-binary, and Genderqueer. I try to cover as much ground as possible without being completely overwhelming.

More updates from the land of Heather

Hey all... just a few updates.

One, my trip to Standing Rock was amazing. I ended up in the National Leadership of Veterans Stand for Standing Rock. We ended up having 4.5k veterans show up in North Dakota to protect the Water Protectors. It was very cool. I was also very happy to spot a large number of Trans veterans among the group. The whole thing made me feel so proud.

Le Gasp!

Wow... it has been a while since I had posted anything. Sheesh...

Anyway, life has been crazy. Writer's Block, health issues, escaping the Mushroom Kingdom (an apartment with mushrooms growing in the bathroom), a grandbaby and more. So is it any wonder that I haven't been able to do much in the way of writing or such. I just wanted to check in, say hi and that I miss you all so much. I do ghost read a number of things on here so there is that.

Still alive and kicking

Hey there everybody,

I just wanted to give everyone an update as to what mischief I have been up to.

Still editing Transitioning Home, mostly because I see a number of issues and plot holes. Sheesh... I thought it was all good to go but apparently I am taking the crack. I was also looking over Splintered Life and realized there are a few more chapters lurking around in there. So that will get pulled at some point, fyi.

Friendly Warning

Hey there...

I just wanted to let you all know that I am going to be pulling Transitioning Home as soon as Joyce can get to it. I plan on reworking some things based on my research and then seeing if I can do the thing with the publish. But, since you all might get surprised by it simply vanishing I felt that letting you all know that was going to happen would be a kindness.

Le ow

So surgery went well. I am in the massively boring part where I lie around and sleep. Let me say that I never thought that ice packs could be your friend. The area is lovely from what I've seen and even the hospital room wasn't that bad. Well the sleepy has befallen me so...

Take care and I'll type at you later.

Thanks and FYI

Thank you to everyone who has bought 300 Rains since it came out. You all are awesome. I was also informed that it will be released in print format in a week or so, so there is that. But seriously, you all helped me get better as a writer and the success of my book does help me know that. So thanks.

Also, I am planning on revising Transitioning Home next, so it will get pulled at some point. I have a number of ideas for revisions so while similar, any version I put out will be different. Just wanted to let you know so it's not a total surprise when it vanishes.

FYI

Just a heads up for everyone.

Because Doppler Press is going to be publishing 300 Rains, I am going to be pulling it in a few days. The novel is different than what is posted here as I changed some of the prose by tightening it up and added things that I noticed were missing or not adequately covered. So it really has a different feel. I am pulling it on Thursday so be aware.

Out of Focus

Out of Focus

By Poetheather

Starting her Real Life Test over the summer was supposed to be fun and safe, but Kelly didn't feel that was the case. And that was before some Youtube star wannabe hit on her. Now she was having trouble figuring how to deal with all of this.

 
 

So there were a few things I wanted you all to know

So... because I really want to be able to make it to Pennsylvania for my surgery I started this. It is similar to GoFundMe and allows me to take any donations people want to share. If you want, please donate. If you don't, that's okay, I'll still like you, though maybe not as much. ;)

Well, after long last I have finished 300 Rains. I wrote the last bit just a while ago. Once I edit it I will get that up here and people can see how it ends. I am happy with the ending and think it fits, rounding out the journey. What a long strange trip its been.

So, just wanted to let you all know that the climactic chapter of 300 Rains is an edit away from being posted. Some of the things in it surprised me and some seemed kind of obvious at that point but it is done. This means that I have 1 maybe 2 chapters left until the story is complete. Finally!

Just to let you know...

This is just an fyi to let you know I am ~650 words into the next chapter of 300 Rains. Trying to get to the end of this so I can focus on the professional work more without it hanging over head. Besides, I so totally want to know how it ends just as much as some of you do.

So, life has been crazy as of late. Between PTSD diagnosis and treatment, kidney stones and other medical misadventures I have barely been able to focus on writing. I have gotten a bit better. I finished the first draft of the last chapter of Written In The Body so I do have hopes of getting to the last several chapters of 300 Rains. That is my plan at any rate.

Yay, it went over well!

I am really happy that something I did in the most recent chapter of Written in the Body played off well. Something I have been setting up for half the story was made clear and that is a slight trans element in a side story. People were surprised but supportive. It is playing out really well and that makes me happy. I have no idea how many of you are following that story but I was just excited about that and wanted to share. :D

Surprise

So... some of you might have noticed the fic I posted. Yeah... it was a surprise to me too. Ranma literally mugged me this morning and made me write and edit this today. It's fun and is a nice Epilogue to that story. It's not being helpful in other ways but it's at least something.

I can't remember if I told you all when I sprained my wrist? That had me out for like 5 weeks. Once that was gone I strained my ribs while sleeping. While effing sleeping! If only I could fire my body and hire a new one. Oy! But other than the pain how was the play Mrs. Lincoln? ;)

So... Ranma mugged me today and she had a bit to say about her life since the end of the story. The final conclusion.

Sorry that I fell off the planet, but my health has still been spotty, with plenty of migraines and other fun and games. Right now I am dealing with a badly sprained wrist and while my one handed typing is getting better not much is happening on any story front. Pain and an inability to type has certainly thrown a wrench in that one. Oy!

Thankfully you guys have loads of great stories on here to keep you occupied. I am sure you have barely missed me ;)

Take care you all and hope to type at you soon.

Thought you all might like to know...

Just thought I'd drop in and let you know that health issues are still problematic. They are fading, but they are still there. And then there is the kidney stone I passed last night. So yeah... I have had a few distractions of late. I'm even running out of buffer in the Potter fic because of being unable to write for the last two weeks. Lots of fun going on here.

So, I'm still kicking, I am writing some, working on things never fear. And I hope you all are doing fine.

Whew!

Managed to get that chapter done and posted. Took a lot longer than it should of, but health concerns are a pain in the tuckus and hold up many a project. So hopefully I can get back to juggling stories and get caught up on things. We'll see. Just letting you all know that I'm gonna try but I have a new Tegan book taking up my time as is Written In The Body. I will be doing what I can until those are out and done. Just a heads up, but things should be better now, as I am feeling a good bit better and can write more. Enjoy.

Takeshi Saito was a quiet student who kept his head down in Ravencrest High School trying to get along. But strange things happen in this small town and the spotlight finds those who would rather hide. So Takeshi finds himself pulled from his happy geek corner to somewhere else, somewhere he is not sure of.

Just another day in Ravencrest.

YES! My head has stopped hurting as much and ideas are starting to flow and I already have over 1k written for the next chapter. It is moving slowly but surely in the direction of getting completed. So yes, story is moving towards getting done and I am not dying due to my head exploding. Life is good.

So, yeah... headaches and migraines are continuing. Life is still full but things are not as bad as they have been. My writing is coming back and I am actually getting things written. I am hoping that this means that I will be able to get back to Kit and Kin soon. I just need Maeko to start talking to me again. I have a bit of the next chapter written but that was like giving myself a root canal. Not fun or easy.

Ugh... hating life

Okay, so I just wanted to let you all know what's up. February hit me like a Hurricane and between nonstop headaches (due to a nurse practitioner screwing up a treatment) and life being extra lifey, I may, may have written 4-5k new words since the last chapter of Kit and Kin was posted. I was ahead in my other story but not with that one and since I can't seem to go a few hours without a headache or migraine, that makes writing tricky at best.

Despite the fact that another fic is riding me hard ;) and the second Tegan book is in process I have been making some progress on the next chapter of K&K. It has not been forgotten and I am still working on it. This is just a reminder that I have not given up on the story, since it has been about a month since the last chapter. I am aware and I am trying to work on this. As soon as I can get it finished I will get it to you. Just fyi.

So I just had someone point something out to me that makes me want to drive my head into a wall repeatedly. In case you all are not aware, Japanese is a very formal language with very different levels of formality. It is crazy and kind of cool and takes a while to get a feel for things. Given that I have not studied Japanese in about twenty years, that I have slipped about the language is not a surprise but what I slipped over is.

So it goes

Okay, so, between the new Tegan book, Written In The Body and vacation, I am a bit behind the curve. Just wanted to let you all know what is going on. I haven't forgotten you all and the stories I have been working on, it's just that life is continuing to be what it usually is... crazy. So, as things change I will let you know.

Story enroute

So I finally got the new chapter of Kit and Kin out, and it has taken some work to pull that off. Between a lot of work on the new story which is up to chapter 12 with 4 chapters posted already, this thing is really going wild. If you are looking for it, it is called Written In The Body and is on fanfiction.net and Archive of our own. It is seriously intense and is pretty long. Over 15k in 4 chapters is a pretty chunky story. This is going to be yet another novel written by me. Le sigh.

Just to let you all know, I am still working on the next Kit and Kin. I am tinkering with it but going is slow. Part of the reason is that another story mugged me and is beating me terribly about the head and shoulders. Terpsi is clearly enjoying the idea of writing a love story about Hermione Granger and Ginny Weasley that starts with a torture scene. It's not my fault. Terpsi is a freak.

That's all folks...

After 5 months to the day (which is pretty cool by the way) Transitioning Home is complete. I hope you guys enjoyed the ride. It was a lot of fun to see everyone's reactions. I know it was rough sometimes, but I do hope the happy times balanced that out.

So what did you all think overall?

In the last seven days I have posted six things. Two Kit and Kin, two Transitioning Home, one 300 Rains and one Chalice and the Wand. Tomorrow there will be another Transitioning Home. That is a lot of stuff in a week folks. I hope you are enjoying the variety and the speed because at some point my hands are going to fall off.

I need to get back to work on Kit and Kin 13, which I already have stuff on and the rest of my unfinished projects. I am trying to clear out my backlog so I have nothing hanging over me when I start the next Tegan book.
