In other great news, Unfortunate Son, along with the follow-up Wayward Son, received Honorable Mentions in the 2015 Rainbow Awards. (For those who aren’t familiar, an Honorable Mention means that at least one judge awarded 36 or more points out of a possible 40. It’s separate from the final award placement; for example, Playing Ball received an Honorable Mention and then won the category in 2014.)
And finally, next Monday I’ll be embarking on a blog tour in support of Nobody’s Son, book three in the Sons series. I’ll kick things off at Prism Book Alliance, and I’ll post the full tour schedule here as well. There’ll be prizes, naturally, so be sure to check back and check out the tour to win! (Great big thanks to William Cooper and IndiGo Marketing & Design for putting the tour together.)
I’m thrilled to show off the cover for my next release, Nobody’s Son, book 3 in the Sons series. Check out the pretty:
(Design by Paul Richmond and Maria Fanning.)
Who wouldn’t want a nice cup of tall, dark, and gorgeous? Shaun Rogers does. He’s working at the front desk of a clothing-optional gay resort when Conrad “Con” Brooks walks in. The sweet, funny, and smart IT guy is there to install a new network and security system, and sparks fly between the two men from the start. Trouble is, Shaun’s hiding his sexuality from his grandmother, the only family he has left, and that makes him reluctant to take the leap with Con.
Then a man claiming to be Shaun’s absent father shows up out of nowhere, throwing Shaun completely off balance. His life spiraling toward chaos, Shaun soon discovers that his “father” is hiding secrets of his own. When things come to a head between them, it’s Con who comes to Shaun’s rescue—but the incident could force Shaun into a decision he’s not sure he’s ready to make.
Nobody’s Son releases on November 16 from Dreamspinner Press. Preorder links are available at the Dreamspinner site and are forthcoming for Amazon and AllRomance.
And now for the bonus! On December 31, Dreamspinner will release a short epilogue to the Sons series, featuring all seven of the men from the series. I also have the cover art for Sons and Brothers to share!
(Design also by Paul Richmond and Maria Fanning.)
The blurb for Sons and Brothers:
As the end of the year approaches, seven gay men in their own unique romances ring in the holidays in their own unique ways. Six months after they started dating, Evan Day and Riley Yeats are settling into living together in Riley’s loft. Across town, Shaun Rogers and Con Brooks are celebrating an old-fashioned Christmas with Shaun’s family. But when threesome Mikey O’Malley, Jimmy Black, and Cory Lassiter pull off a big New Year’s Eve surprise, their friends find themselves considering the future of their own relationships.
No links for this one yet, so stay tuned. 🙂
Here are all the Sons series covers, lined up and ready for admiring:

The blurb for Wayward Son:
After his move to Atlanta and away from the influence of his conservative parents, Mikey O’Malley finally feels free to be himself: art student, aspiring animator, and out gay man. He has friends, a new job, and not one, but two men interested in him. Cory Lassiter and Jimmy Black have been a happy couple for years, occasionally bringing a twink into their bed, but only for a brief roll in the hay. When Mikey meets the pair, the attraction is immediate, and it runs three ways. Mikey just can’t believe they’d have room in their lives for a permanent addition.
When Mikey’s newfound life is shattered by a lawsuit that accuses him of molesting a child years earlier, he’s determined to face his troubles on his own, but Cory and Jimmy are just as determined that he not have to go it alone. To reconcile his need for independence and his desire for love, Mikey has to learn that being a man isn’t just about standing on your own two feet. It’s about letting yourself lean on the ones who love you.
Wayward Son releases May 11 from Dreamspinner Press.
Today I’m over at Prism Book Alliance with a post about secondary characters in Unfortunate Son. There’s also an exclusive snippet from book 2, Wayward Son, which features Cory, Jimmy, and Mikey from book 1 and will be out in just a few months. Be sure to go check it out! 🙂
My 12 Days of Charity list is complete. If you need last-minute donation ideas, this would be a great place to start!
Amazon and AllRomance buy links are now active for Butt Babes in Boyland (in addition to the direct Wilde City link). So now you can pick up the book with a free ARe code, LOL. (For those wondering, the book will be available in print too, but I don’t know that publication date yet.)
The next butt-thology, Butt Riders on the Range, is in production and will be out in the spring. My story is “Faux Cowboy.”
Did you see the gorgeous cover for my January 12 release, Unfortunate Son?? You can preorder a copy, too!
I’ve just submitted the final manuscript file and a cover art spec sheet for Wayward Son, so that process is moving along. May/June is the release date!
I’m mostly taking Christmas week off. I have one production request to take care of by the end of the weekend, but after that, I’m not worrying about anything writing-related for a week. And I’m teleworking for the day job on Monday and Tuesday, but then I’ll be off for the holiday. Looking forward to the break! 🙂
