The holiday sales are ramping up all over the place, and today, MLR Press is celebrating Thanksgiving with 25% off everything in their store. That includes the first of the “butts” anthologies, Butt Pirates in Space, which includes my short story “What to Expect When Your Boyfriend is Expecting.” Great timing if you haven’t had the pleasure, since the third anthology, Butt Babes in Boyland, is coming out December 3 from Wilde City (which also has the second anthology, Butt Ninjas from Hell.)
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!
Also! Dreamspinner Press is offering 25% off everything in the store through Sunday, November 30. You can find my DSP backlist HERE, including my two holiday stories, “Of Holiday Spirits, Wake-Up Calls, and Happily Ever Afters” and “Sharing Christmas.”

I’m at Prism Book Alliance today, talking about my love affair with food and how it led to “Ice Cream Dreams,” my story in the All in a Day’s Work anthology. Great big thanks to Brandilyn and her team for having me over!
Yesterday, A.J. Cousins visited Boys in Our Books to discuss her story in the anthology, “Dance Hall Days,” a 1930s historical set in London. She wrote more about her story on her blog, too. One of the things I love about doing anthologies is how different the stories turn out. 🙂
Back on Monday, our release day, Bru Baker visited MM Good Book Reviews, which also gave the antho a lovely review.
Also, in case you missed it, all the buy links for the anthology are up and running now:

It’s here! My latest release, the All in a Day’s Work anthology, is out today from Dreamspinner Press. Check it out…
A guy’s got to make a living. He can do it the conventional way—by selling cars, scooping ice cream, or delivering sandwiches—or he can earn his money as a spy, a historical interpreter, or the host of a myth-busting television show. Whether the men in this anthology are working hard to build their own business or performing in drag at a dance hall, every day has the potential for surprises and the chance to satisfy their lust or maybe find something more permanent. For the guys in these stories, what’s all in a day’s work might be anything but what they expected.
My story is “Ice Cream Dreams”: Gage Albert is working at his Uncle Gordon’s ice cream shop when well-regarded young chef Loren Rey stops by, interested in using the shop’s unique flavors for his new restaurant. Gage plies Loren with samples and banter and soon finds ice cream isn’t the only thing on the menu. After the men share a hot night together, Gage approaches his uncle about Loren’s ideas, but he fears Gordon’s religious nature may mean rejection not just for Loren but also for Gage, who isn’t out to his uncle. Torn between the business and the personal, Gage has to decide if a future with Loren is worth revealing all.

We have a gorgeous cover for the upcoming anthology All in a Day’s Work! Just check THIS baby out:
I’m happy to be sharing space with some amazing authors for this anthology of workplace-themed short stories. My contribution is titled “Ice Cream Dreams,” and here’s the blurb:

Torn between the business and the personal, Gage has to decide if a future with Loren is worth revealing all.
Pre-orders coming soon! (And the paperback will be available to pre-order for GayRomLit!)
Two bits of writing news to share…
First, last week I signed the contract for All in a Day’s Work, an author-driven anthology that will be published in the fall by Dreamspinner Press. My story is “Ice Cream Dreams,” about a college guy helping out in his uncle’s ice cream shop and the up-and-coming young chef who comes in looking for ideas for his new restaurant.
Second, on Friday I submitted my novel Unfortunate Son, which will be book 1 in the Sons series, currently slated for three books (also with Dreamspinner). Tentative publication date will be January/February 2015, and I’m hard at work on book 2, Wayward Son.
(I rewarded myself for submitting by finally buying Amy Lane’s Ethan in Gold. \o/)
I’m also working on my next butt-themed anthology, which deals with pumpkin pie and sex toys. You know, your average Thanskgiving. 😉 A third Sons novel and another butt story will follow.
And then we’ll see what 2015 brings. 🙂
(P.S. I keep a running tally of my projects under the Works in Progress tab, so check in whenever you like!)
A quickie update with a few of the reviews we’ve gotten for the Butt Ninjas from Hell anthology. We’ve gotten great response, so thanks to all for reading!

Also, back on April 21, the authors got together for an online radio interview. It was a little crazy and a lot silly (like us), and you can listen if you like right here. 🙂
