Hi there!
I'm Sol, a Spanish translator, proofreader, beta-reader and unpublished writer.
I'm working on 10 WIPs at the moment and I'd love to self-publish something in both Spanish and English one day.
It's gonna take a while because I have anxiety and burnout, but I'm getting there little by little :heart_ace:

I have so many unfinished WIPs because I find it difficult to focus on a single thing most of the time, but the oldest one is over 10 years old!
I also have an account in Spanish you can check out in @SolVera , and a blog in English here:

In case you wanted to know about my WIPs:
:heart_pride: They all have LGBTQ+ characters and feature at least one romance.
:triskele: Most of them have fantasy or paranormal elements, but I'm also trying to write one historical story set in Spain.
:boosts_ok_gay: Until I can share one of my stories, I enjoy commissioning artists; seeing my OCs helps a lot with inspiration and motivation!

I caught a lizard hanging out in one of mom’s kitchen plants! He has been safely secured and released to the outside

"Fear not, fair maiden," the knight said, "I shall free you."
"Go away," said the woman, "I'm bait."
"This is the dragon's clever plan to meet you."
"Meet me?"
"Yes, he saw you fight someone and was smitten."
"He did? I mean, he was?"
"This dragon, is he handsome?"

Finished another watercolour\marker #commission. I guess I need to stop calling these "sketch commissions", it takes way more time than just a sketch, even though I started so. Some things bloom from unexpected directions. :)

Am I wearing my Blackbeard's Bar and Grill Shirt? Yes.

Am I wasting part of my vacation scrolling through social media looking at and liking stuff? Yes.

"He was all gray and black - the same as the world he lives in. Yet in his eyes I saw the brightest colours of the sky. His subordinates say that he is icy cold, unreachable and distant. I say that he is dreamy and bright.

The sky is the same - wherever you look at it. The difference is in our attitude".

This is how we're going to greet summer and #pridemonth !
I am so very happy to finally bring something for Pride! Each year I promised and each year I failed, because I always found something more important than myself.

Be kind to yourselves and be proud of who you are. We are all unique and this uniqueness makes this world - and us - so special. Let's celebrate this - and upcoming summer! <3

P.S. Mastodon got this #art earlier than Twitter, ehehe.


Ok, the first one is the Whyborne & Griffin series by Jordan L Hawk. Highly recommended!
It has:
A gay translator 🏳️‍🌈
A bi detective :heart_bi:
A badass archaeologist 🧗🏻‍♀️
The Mummy vibes 🦂
Lovecraftian Horror :tentacle:
Magic 🧙🏻‍♂️
Good LGTBIAQ+ rep :heart_pride:
Cute monsters :venom:
Mental health (anxiety, PTSD...) 🧠
Paranormal Historical Romance series with lots of amazing books to enjoy, plus a spin-off to look forward to!

Settle a bet with me and my wife. If someone asked you the most iconic song from Les Mis, which song would you pick? Boosts welcome.

Alphabetical so as not to bias answers.

Thank you so much for votes and comments! I finally have structured comic prologue and hope to finish the first short story "The Sweetest Story Never Told" by the end of this summer! I already have the script and soon will work on storyboard. <3

Meanwhile - our White Knight aka Blaze and his magic, Lohengrin.

I've been reading books with LGBTQ+ characters for 7 years and a half, so I made seven lists naming my top 12 reads of each year (one novel or one series per month).
These were my favourite reads back in 2015. Would you like to know more about them? Or do you want to know my favourite reads from the following year?

Did you know I love sharing book recs and commissioning artists? Would you like to see some of them here?

...but with no balloons, no cake and no party. It's not how I wanted to meet my 30th Birthday, but I still have the Internet and friends.❤️
Though, I don't lose my spirits! If I can't have IRL party, nobody can stop me from throwing one with the help of Internet! Sharing my artworks, leaving some comments, words of support, support via KoFi are much appreciated! Thank you so much for being with me in this day
