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!

You can preorder from Dreamspinner right here. Other links coming soon. 🙂

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. 🙂

Currently writing: Tongue & Groove, M/M novella (~66%)

Keep Track of Me in 2016 (and Beyond)

First up: In case you hadn’t noticed, I have a shiny new header and a shiny new tagline: Romance for Every Heart. The tagline reflects my belief that love is for everyone, and my intent to show that with the stories I write. Even though some of those stories might fall outside your usual reading boundaries, I hope you’ll give them a try. Don’t worry—I have no plans to leave M/M romance behind. 🙂

I’ll also be working on a redesign of the website, and along with the new look, I’ll be launching a newsletter probably later this month. Sign-ups are available right here. I don’t expect to publish more than once a month, and likely less often than that. Expect to find updates on upcoming titles, sneak peeks at cover art, snippets of works in progress, and a giveaway now and then.

So, what kinds of things will I be telling you about? I’m glad you asked!

I have only one firm submission deadline this year. In the fall, I’ll be submitting my (first?) title for the Dreamspun Desires line, Dating the Dad Next Door, with tentative publication slated for late 2017 or early 2018. In the meantime, though, I’ll be working on three primary projects: Help Wanted, an M/F category romance; Out of Bounds, the first in a college-set, sports-centered, crossover series (with M/M, M/F, and F/F titles); and Rhythm & Blues, a set of three thematically related M/M novellas. I might also try to squeeze in a Christmas story. I’ve been jonesing to write one for a while now.

I don’t currently have any firm publication dates during 2016, but after successfully getting In From the Cold published to Amazon in December, I’m working on self-publishing some more second editions. I have a novella and a short story that will revert to me this year and another short story that I already have back. Expect the novella in March, one short story in June, and the other short story in August (dates subject to change). And I plan to have those be available more widely than just Amazon this time!

(I’ll be doing cover art for those too, which is a whole different kind of fun. The novella cover is already done and will debut in the newsletter. :D)

On another note, I’ve decided not to publish guest posts regularly like I have been the past couple of years. I hate to do it, but it’s time I can’t really spare right now. I will still post occasional guest blogs as part of special events (like charity blog hops), so if you have one of those coming up and would like me to host, feel free to shoot me an email. 🙂

RELEASE DAY! Nobody’s Son Blog Tour/Parties/Giveaways Galore!

Today’s the day! Nobody’s Son, book three (and the last novel) in the Sons series, is now available! Blurb and buy links:

NobodysSon_600Who 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.

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:

The blurb:

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.

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!

SonsandBrothers_600

(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. 🙂

Release Day for Butt Riders on the Range!

ButtRiders_smallIt’s here! The fourth of the “butt-thologies,” Butt Riders on the Range, which includes my story “Faux Cowboy,” is now available from Wilde City Press.

The blurb: Do you imagine blazing gun battles, bandits, and saloons with watered-down drinks when you think of cowboys and the West? We don’t. Our minds go right to horse shifters, bull shifters, were-leopards, urban wannabes, an interrupted journey along Route 66, a man of mystery named Dr. Feel-Good, and high noon at the edge of the galaxy! The fourth time’s the charm as the Butt-Thology authors saddle up, ride their men hard, and put ‘em away wet.

Butt Riders on the Range…the bulls aren’t the only ones being grabbed by the horns!
