Happy to announce that I’ve just signed a contract with Wilde City Press for my scifi erotic menage short story “Fringes.” The story will appear as part of their Charlie Harding Presents line. Charlie is an adult film star (among other things) and a friend of mine who invited me to submit (heh). No release date yet, but it looks like late July or August.
This is story number 13 for me, and publisher number 5! Yes, I practice literary promiscuity.
OMG, it’s out!!
Strap yourself in and strap something on as you’re transported across galaxies and lifetimes by Kiernan Kelly, Kage Alan, Angelia Sparrow, T.C. Blue and Shae Connor. Whether it’s an interspecies pregnancy between two hormonal males, a swashbuckling group of pirates, or free gifts that talk, you’ll soon learn why in space, no one can hear you cream. Open wide for BUTT PIRATES IN SPPAAACCCEEE!

Yes, you’re reading that title right. Butt Pirates in Space (yes, you should read that as “IN SPAAAACE!”) is a new anthology coming later this week from MLR Press. It includes my short story “What to Expect When Your Boyfriend Is Expecting.” Yes, it’s MPREG… well, sort of.
A year after his arrival on the planet Lalande with a group of Earth scientists, Zeke’s had a lot of adjustment to do. He sure never expected to fall in love with a Lalandian, much less for Zeph to end up pregnant. And just about the time Zeke gets used to that idea, their unborn child draws the attention of more than just the scientific community. When kidnappers strike in the form of a band of privateers, Zeke has to put all his wits to work to outsmart them and reunite his family.
The anthology itself came out of a kind of crazy panel at Outlantacon last year, and we’ll be having a follow-up panel and release party at Outlantacon this year. Kage Alan is already insisting that, next year, we go for butt ninjas.
Those sneaky bastards.

I’m doing a bit of housecleaning on the site, mainly to organize the bibliography a little better. If you find any borked links or can’t find something, let me know in comments and I’ll locate it for you.
Also, the audiobook of the Never Say Never anthology released! Woot! Now you can listen to all those dirty words from “Stripped” being read into your ear. Oooo. shivers
I’m one of those eternally optimistic people who can’t bring myself to be cynical about Valentine’s Day. Never mind that I’ve been single for most of them. Yes, V-Day is way overcommercialized, like most holidays, but I find it difficult to look too harshly on a day whose basic purpose is to celebrate love. Romantic love isn’t even the tip of the iceberg of what’s out there. So no matter what your status—single, partnered, or “it’s complicated”—I hope you have a day filled with love.
To help you celebrate, here are a few discount offers to go toward restocking your selection of romance reading!
- Dreamspinner Press is offering 20% off everything today (through midnight Eastern time), and for the rest of the month, they’re running a Hearts and Flowers scavenger hunt, with a heart graphic hidden in various places around the web site. Find and click on the graphic, and you’ll get a code for 20% off all the publications by the author whose page the graphic is hidden on.

My second Christmas story for this year, “In From the Cold,” is out now from Silver Publishing!
When Jeff Young walks into the rural Georgia lodge Neal Owens runs, he’s looking for a room to escape a frigid December night. What he finds is a new friend, a lover, and maybe more, all wrapped up in one hot package.

Well, hi there. It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? No, I’m not dead or anything. It’s just the holidays!
I’ve been having a busy December so far. The first weekend was spent in New York, seeing a play and visiting with friends (including fellow Dreamspinner author Rachel West, who is awesome!). Yesterday, my sister/roommate and I had a Christmas party, which was a lot of fun but a LOT of work. The nicest part may end up being that our apartment is now clean and decorated for Christmas, and we still have a couple of weeks to enjoy it!
In writing news, I haven’t been doing much (because: see previous paragraph), but I’m going to be getting back to it this week. I have a fandom project, a new commission project, and a NaNo project to finish. Not to mention a long list of “stories in progress,” and some galley proofs on the next novella coming soon! Plus one of my holiday stories is out and the other comes on the 22nd, and I’ll be doing a couple of blog visits for those.
Now, let’s see if I can manage not to disappear for so long again any time soon…

Today is release day for the stories in Dreamspinner’s 2001 Advent Calendar set, I’ll Be Home for Christmas. Included is my short story, “Of Holiday Spirits, Wake-Up Calls, and Happily Ever Afters.” (The title is almost as long as the story!)
You can buy any of the stories in the set individually or the full set at a discount.
Enjoy, and happy December!
