Blak Rayne


A good friend, who is also an author, happened to mention that she likes to read author bios and, when she checked mine, sadly, she was disappointed. The bio I had used at the time was generic, blah, and it didn't tell her anything personal about Blak Rayne. Her suggestion. Change it! What she really meant to say: "I want to read the juicy bits, lady!"
Okay, the truth. My life is crazy hectic most days as I divide my time between family, friends, writing, and marketing while running our businesses and household. I spend an average of eight to twelve hours a day on the computer. Some of my favourite things are cats, tea, anything in purple, yaoi, dragons, watching anime and movies, and listening to my large collection of music. I will read just about anything, but my preferred genres are fantasy, thriller, romance, and science-fiction.
I'm a member of the RWA & RWA-GVC, I attend conferences and writing groups whenever time permits, and I've taken a number of writing courses. In my spare time I build websites and proof-read for other authors. I also format eBooks, and I'm learning to create book covers. In the near future, I hope to take an editing course.
Currently, I reside in British Columbia, Canada with my husband, our daughter, and son. Out eldest passed away, so he's with us in spirit.
What else can I tell you? Lots of things, but the most important tidbit, I'm passionate about my writing and plan to continue publishing. How many novels? Who knows, I guess until the ideas run dry.

Smashwords book reviews by Blak Rayne

  • Cold Beautiful on May 06, 2013

    * Same review as published on Goodreads Cold Beautiful by Yamila Abraham, art by Himitsu Studio, is a yaoi short that's been on my 'to read' list since it was first published. For me, the attraction was the cover, which I might add, is quite well done. Here's a brief synopsis. Cold Beautiful, from what I gathered, takes place in present day Russia, and is the story of Yolkov, a prison guard—a young, good-looking prison guard—who is attracted to one of the most dangerous criminals housed within the prison walls, Zhirov. Yolkov is totally rapt by Zhirov, partly because the man saved his life during a riot. Basically, Zhirov protected him from being gang raped. Incarcerated for life, Zhirov seems to have changed and longs for freedom—to see the sky and trees again. But, he also longs for Yolkov. Eventually, an opportunity crops up that neither man can ignore. Government officials offer a chance to leave the prison by way of work on an island, which has become an environmental hazard—a dumping ground for hazardous waste. Yolkov is eager to give Zhirov the change of scenery he desires as payment for saving his life, and Zhirov wants the chance to be alone with Yolkov. Of course the warden is a backstabbing bitch, and there are strong undertones of Russian propaganda. After a lengthy buildup, I found the characters Yolkov and Zhirov endearing, a pair of men I thoroughly enjoyed reading about. But, and here's the big but, the first chapter proved confusing because the story seemed to start in the middle, without a clear explanation. The second problem, just as Cold Beautiful had a weak start it had an equally weak ending. After such a bittersweet romance, I'd expected Yolkov and Zhirov to share in some type of victory, but the conclusion was unworthy of these men. I felt as if I'd been robbed, that the author got tired of writing and just did what she had to in order to finish the book. I give Cold Beautiful 3 stars—Yolkov and Zhirov were wonderful, the sex was hot, and Himitsu Studio did an excellent job with the cover. As for the plot, though it had great potential, sadly, it turned out to be a disappointment.
