A downloadable novella

Buy Now$2.99 USD or more

Opens with a clean, masculine atmosphere of the urban-medicinal, developing to an aggressive, animalic heart of musk, cassis, burnt honey, copper, with a raging drydown of metallic fever. Dominant notes include caregiving, autism, and gay shit. Evokes the scenario of a best friend becoming infected and wanting to eat your face off. You work at a medical lab with his ex. You still remember your family huddled around a pool of teeth on the floor. Some call it rabies. For you, it is...Low Kill Shelter.

my brain is full of bees and it's very rare that i'm able to sit down and read an entire book, cover to back, in a single sitting. this was one of the first in years. absolutely loved it.

that makes me happy! my brain is full of bees too (and wasps mosquitos flies), so i try to make each sentence count. thank you so much :D

absolutely brilliant. your writing style is so evocative - ascetic yet somehow florid at the same time. im definitely going to be stealing some stylistic flourishes from you in the future.

on a more personal level this is (to me) a wonderful exploration of the line between human and animal and how blurry it truly is, of the desire to simply exist, untethered by social structures and self-censoring. it's also undeniably erotic in a way that i very rarely see explored with any kind of thought or nuance. this novella made me more comfortable with the animal that i am. i'm better for having read it.

that's one of my favorite ways I've heard someone describe my writing <3 this delicate balance…moss and mold amid the brutalism

yes, ero is infinitely deep and powerful to me, even more so because intimacy and romance is seen as inferior to write about…but for me the best stories happen in the debased places. thank you for this really lovely and encouraging review

looking forward to whatever you make next c:

this week I released my first novel with perhaps some overlap of themes although I should warn much much darker and crueler than low kill shelter, not for everyone. in 2023 I'll release more novellas. thank you! 🙇‍♀️
