Cover and Preorder for Accidental Fall

I’ve been so busy getting things ready for the release of Tongue & Groove that I almost forgot I have another novella coming next month! On September 21, Dreamspinner Press will re-release Accidental Fall (formerly titled Accidental Love when Amber Allure originally published it in 2012). It’s undergone only minor edits in addition to the title change, and Paul Richmond made a lovely new cover for it.🙂

So pretty!

An Anniversary Worth Noting, and A Look Ahead

Sand&WaterLGOn this day 5 years ago, my first novel was released. Sand & Water told the story of widower John, who finds love again with Bryan. I still get warm fuzzy feelings about the story, and I’m still proud of it.

The novella I just finished writing, Heart & Soul, will be my 25th published story. Four novels, eight novellas, and thirteen short stories (not counting freebies and re-releases). It’ll come out a little more than six years after my first story, Model Student.

All of my stories so far have been M/M (or M/M/M), but with no. 26, I’m branching out into F/F. I also have an M/F in the works, and a series that will include M/M, M/F, and F/F (at least).

I’ve never been the biggest seller out there, or the one with the best reviews, or the biggest fanbase. But I enjoy being an author, and I like what I write. I hope readers do, too. And hope those who enjoy my writing will keep right on reading.🙂

Surprise (Re-)Release! “Fringes”

I recently got back the rights to my erotic voyeuristic threesome BDSM sci-fi romance short story”Fringes,” so I’m re-releasing it! (Minor editing only, no substantive changes.) I’m also trying out KU, so it’s just at Amazon for now.

fringescover

Out on the edge of the universe, boundaries blur at the speed of life.

While checking an abandoned ship in the hopes of spare parts or rare luxuries, lovers Jace and Tal find a room that seems to have been made for them—it has built-in bondage table. They take advantage of the surprising find, but then the ship’s communications system crackles to life, and they discover they aren’t exactly alone. The ship’s owner, Cruz, offers them a deal: fix up the ship—and give him live sex shows now and then—and he’ll pay them for the privilege. But when their business agreement takes a turn for the personal, all three men end up getting more than they bargained for.

Tongue & Groove Links

A quick post to put all the info for Tongue & Groove in one place for easy linking.:)


Sometimes home is what two hearts make of it.

After fifteen years on the road, rock singer Saul Wilder doesn’t know if he remembers how to stay in one place. While healing from a vocal cord injury, he decides to restore the cozy but neglected Atlanta home his grandmother left him. When home renovation specialist Perry Abrams arrives to assess the job, Saul’s on board with mixing business with a little pleasure. The sex is scorching hot, but the more they learn about each other, the deeper they fall emotionally as well. Trouble is, Saul’s a traveling man and Perry’s a homebody, so finding common ground to share could put the brakes on their relationship before it has a chance to get started.

Rhythm & Blues Release Week

Whew! It’s been a busy week. I visited several blogs for the release of Rhythm & Blues, and I’ve had several nice reviews.

Monday: At Joyfully Jay, I talked about my inspiration for Rhythm & Blues and the other novellas I have in the works and offered a brief exclusive excerpt.

Tuesday: For The Novel Approach, I wrote about working with the amazing AngstyG to create the gorgeous cover art for the novellas.

Thursday: At Love Bytes, I featured the two celebrities who inspired Pate and Ace, the main characters in the novella.

Saturday: For my Outside the Margins post at Prism Book Alliance, I gave a tongue-in-cheek overview of the self-publishing process.

I’ve also been grateful to receive a number of good reviews so far.🙂

Joyfully Jay: “Two engaging, lovely characters, a miscommunication that is resolved quickly and believably, sweeping romance, and an all around feel good tale.”

Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words: “If you like sweet MM romances with a slow burn that ultimately leads to some smoking hot times, this one is for you.”

Hearts on Fire Reviews: “I liked that Pate realizes he loves dance but is firmly grounded in reality. That reality includes the renovation of the building for his dance studio.”

Three Books Over the Rainbow: “I believe the writer’s aim was to entertain and give the reader an enjoyable hour in fantasy land. She perfectly succeeded.”

Just Love Romance: “While the attraction between Pate and Ace was palpable from the beginning, I liked that they both focused on the project at hand and got to know each other before taking things further.”

Love Bytes: “I highly recommend you check this out, if like me you just need some good ol’ lovin to pick you up.”

Oh My Shelves: “This was a really light and sweet read from a new to me author.”

Huge thanks to everyone who’s bought Rhythm & Blues, and happy reading!

A quick post to put all the info for Rhythm & Blues in one place for easy linking.🙂


When life tears apart your dream, build a new one.

After a knee injury ended his career, Broadway dancer Pate Hawkins limped his way back from New York to Atlanta to implement Plan B: open a dance academy to train the next generation of song-and-dance dreamers. When model-gorgeous contractor Ace Samson answers his request for an estimate on renovating his studio space, Pate hits pay dirt in more ways than one. As construction gets underway, the red-hot attraction between the two men flares, and soon they develop a fledgling relationship. Then the siren song of the stage calls Pate back, and he has to choose between the dream he left behind and the new life he’s building—with his studio, and with Ace.

Updates, We’ve Got Updates!

A quick check-in from the midst of the whirlwind. After a dayjob conference in Denver last week, I spent the weekend working on the next novella (due to my editor the first weekend in June) and helping get ready for the roomie’s (JP Barnaby’s) family to come visit. I’ll be spending this coming weekend in Orlando going to Disney, which cuts into my writing time by a lot, but considering I keep doing a lot of writing on airplanes (2,300 words on the flights to and from Denver), I should be able to make some progress anyway.

(For the record, the tentative release date for Tongue & Groove is August 29.)

Rhythm&Blues_webIn the meantime, I’ve sent the final proof corrections for Rhythm & Blues to the formatter. As soon as that’s done, I’ll get the files uploaded to AllRomance and Draft2Digital, so non-Amazon order links should start showing up soon. Less than a month until release now! (And thank you to those who have pre-ordered so far. <3)

I also have a tentative release date for my next Dreamspinner novella, Accidental Fall, which is a re-release of a former Amber Allure title. Look for that on September 21.

Still to come: a third M/M novella, and then probably an F/F one, if life cooperates. That’ll take me into early 2017, and we’ll see where things go from there.🙂
