Surprise (re-)release! My short story collection Wide Open Spaces is now available. Wide Open Spaces contains seven previously published short stories, including all four of my stories from the “butt”-thologies, and all for just 99 cents! Cover and blurb:
Seven short stories, seven couples, seven different worlds.
What to Expect When Your Boyfriend Is Expecting
What fun is a cross-species pregnancy without an old-fashioned kidnapping to shake things up?
What’s in the past doesn’t always stay in the past—which might not be a bad thing.
Clean Up on Aisle Me!
The customer is always right. Unless he’s dead.
A shared hotel room and some uniform appeal.
I Married the Best Man
Waking up married in Vegas might have been the best accident of their lives.
The Half-Life of Pumpkin Pie
Of bakeries, holiday parties, and unexpected gifts.
Save a fake horse—ride a fake cowboy.
All stories have been previously published.

First, a clarification, because this is important. I saw a comment about this, so I wanted to clarify that the US flag in the cover image for Unfortunate Son is not touching the floor. Travis was standing on a paper background drape for the shoot, and while the flag did touch the paper a few times, it was never on the floor. Travis is a military veteran and I’m the daughter and granddaughter of one, so that’s definitely something we paid attention to.
Moving on… more Unfortunate Son blog tour stops! I’ve been to Andrew Q. Gordon’s with a post on writing to a deadline, The Kimi-chan Experience talking about Atlanta as setting, Grace R. Duncan’s to discuss how “The Hero’s Journey” helped me write Unfortunate Son, and The Blogger Girls to talk about how the progression of same-sex marriage legalization could affect gay romance fiction. (The last post went up early, but better early than never!)
And in other news, I’ve completed the first round of edits on Sons book 2, Wayward Son, and I’m deep into work on book 3, Nobody’s Son. Also, the print version of Butt Babes in Boyland is being finalized, and Butt Riders on the Range (with my story “Faux Cowboy”) is in production with the publisher. Release dates to follow as soon as I have them! 🙂
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! 🙂
I’m guest blogging over at Prism Book Alliance today, talking about the craziness that is Butt Babes in Boyland and my love for holiday stories.
On Tuesday, fellow butt babe Kiernan Kelly guested at MM Good Book Reviews, who gave the anthology an awesome 4.5-star review. Yay! Thanks, Lisa!
Also, on Monday night, Wt Prater will be hosting most of the butts authors on Taste Test on WON Radio. Details and more guest appearances to come! 🙂
It’s here, it’s here! The butt boys are here!
It’s release day for the latest entry in our sort-of series, Butt Babes in Boyland, from Wilde City Press. Yay!!!
The blurb and the complete story list:
The holidays are a time for visiting with family and friends, and sharing tales of peace, childlike innocence, and good will towards all mankind. These are not those stories. Instead, sit back and allow yourself to be regaled with the colorful adventures of toy-themed parties with a twist, the future of Elf Enforcement, misfit sex toys at the North Pole, the mysterious Workshop 69, special delivery packages, and a serious case of potentially mistaken identity. This year, the Butt-thology authors cordially invite you to join them in creating a new tradition.
This holiday season, it’s not just turkeys getting stuffed!
“It’s A Wonderful Lube” by Kage Alan
“The Isle of Misfit Toys” by JP Barnaby
“For Fox Sake” by T.C. Blue
“The Half-Life of Pumpkin Pie” by Shae Connor
“Special Package” by Jevocas Green
“Elf Confidence” by Kiernan Kelly
BUY LINKS! (to be updated as links go live)
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.”
