Quick Post!

Real life is still keeping me on the run, but I thought I should actually make a "release day, yay!" post, so, uh, here it is....

The Last Thing He Needs went live today on DSP, AllRomance, Amazon, and B&N! *cheers*

But! For a few more hours, A Simple Romance (along with reads by Tara Lain and Susan MacNicol) will be on sale at DSP for under a buck, so, ya know, spread the word for almost-freebies. There are a few days left of those special sales--three a day--so keep an eye on Dreamspinner's website. :D

I hope everyone out there is doing well and getting some rest this summer. We're heading to the mountains for some much needed relief from the heat!

Things are hectic here, but...

I've had a pretty bumpy start to summer with some family stuff and a cracked laptop screen, but I'm way over due for a post here.

My upcoming release The Last Thing He Needs went up for pre-order on Dreamspinner's website last week and it's also available (as a fledgling bestseller and on sale too!) at All Romance.

If you're looking for some great FREE reads, be sure to check out the offerings from the M/M Romance Group's Don't Read in the Closet event.  There are so many great stories on that site. If you haven't checked them out yet, do! You can find my free historical here.

And, lastly, on a personal note, for my daughter's sixteenth birthday I took her and four of her friends yurt camping! If you're not a camper or have never tried it but would like to give it a shot with something easy, I'd seriously suggest renting a yurt. It's cheaper than a cabin, more convenient than tent camping, and--at least at the park we stayed at--comes with a private bathroom. All the fun of camping (cooking over the fire, stories, playing in the fields and down by the river, watching the wildlife, etc.) with none of the hassle. Ours was even close enough to town that we had phone service *and* were able to make a quick run to the store when we ran out of hot chocolate and s'mores supplies. I highly recommend it!

We also figured out how to make pizza over the campfire. The key is making a tent out of tinfoil. It was perfect. :D

So, yes, rocky start to summer, but some fun stuff too. I hope you and yours are having a great July so far. I'll hopefully update again before the end of the month and, if I'm really lucky, I'll get something going on my new Twitter account. I've done nothing there yet, but I'll get around to it soon!

New cover!

Wow, it's been too long since I updated. I've been crazy busy for the last couple months working on my free read for the Goodreads Love's Landscapes event. Stories will be going up this summer, so be sure to check them all out.

I'm in the middle of edits for my new release through Dreamspinner Press as well. I'll post more details about that when they're available, but for now, check out this cover!

I hope you guys have a great weekend. More to come soon!

Season's Greetings!

Does everyone else feel like this year has flown by? Is there anyone looking back on the last twelve months thinking it was a slow drag? I feel like it's gone by at warp speed.

Anyway, I was playing around the other day and wrote a little Christmas short for Skip and Paul. And, well, mostly Johnny, but whatever. I thought I'd post it and wish everyone a happy holiday. Or, ya know, happy winter if you don't celebrate.

Some stuff!

Maybe I should just make a goal to post quarterly? I could probably swing that!

The reason I’m (finally!) getting a post out today is because I’m super excited for a few things.

First, my awesome pal Nico Jaye has a new title coming out tomorrow! I got a sneak peak and, I gotta say, it’s a sweet, fun, fantastic read. You can read more about Different Strokes (and take advantage of the pre-order sale ^.^) here. And, check out these adorable little guys that her friend whipped up. 

How could anyone resist those two?

Second, in the spirit of the holidays and giving, Dreamspinner Press has teamed up with the Lost-N-Found Center in Atlanta, Ga. They’re hoping to make a happy holiday for some great kids. You can find all the information here. Even a dollar will make a difference for this great cause.

Third, Harmony Ink Press is hosting a Young Author Challenge. They’ve got an open call out for young authors ages 14-18 to submit work for a young adult anthology. The best part? Whether a story is selected or not the writer will receive feedback from a published author. You can get all the details at their website. If you know a young author, send them over there!

And, lastly, it’s probably way too soon (seriously, months too soon) to say anything, but, what the heck, I’m excited. I just got notice last night that my new title was accepted by Dreamspinner Press. I’ll post more news on that when there is some actual news, but for now, yay! 

I hope everyone is having a fantastic December and staying warm!

Release day! And, ya know, stuff.

First, my Love Has No Boundaries story went live today on Goodreads! You can find it here. There are several other (awesome!) stories already posted for the event with links posted here. You do have to be a member, but it's a great group of readers and writers with some hardworking, wonderful mods. If you haven't joined yet, do it!

In other news, I just want to share my absolute joy over DOMA being struck down. It's been a long time coming and my whole family rejoiced when the verdict was announced. That was a great thing to wake up to on Tuesday morning.

And, I'm thrilled that the Mariners will be flying the rainbow flag for Sunday's game. I'm not really a sports fan but my mother is. She said it made her love her team a little bit more. I'll second that.

What a great week! I hope everyone out there is enjoying summer and doing some fun stuff. The kids and I went camping for our season kickoff and had a great time. Until we woke up at three in the morning on the last day with rain pounding through the ceiling of our tent. That's camping in the PNW, though. Gotta love it. :D

So much for a weekly update!

I've been hiding in my writer cave for the last few weeks, but some fun stuff is happening so I guess I better get this post rolling.

A Simple Romance came out on Wednesday! And, yes, I probably should have posted that, ya know, on Wednesday, but better late than never, right?

And, in somewhat related news, today only, Dreamspinner Press is having a St. Patrick's Day special with site wide sales (A Simple Romance is %25 off right now!) along with some great free reads hidden around the site, so if you haven't yet, go check it out!

I'm also super excited about what's going on over at goodreads in the M/M Romance Group. They're starting their annual Don't Read in the Closet event! Love Has No Boundaries is going to be awesome. There are going to be a lot of stories by some incredibly talented writers (first timers and seasoned authors!) all offered for free.  If you want to read some great stories, offer a prompt for someone to spark their muse, or join in the writing, check it out here. I've already picked my prompt and started working on it. Don't tell my other WIP. >_>

You can read last year's stories here! Mine is in there somewhere, along with many others. You do have to be a member of the M/M Romance Group to check them out, but don't worry; they only bite if you ask them to.

I hope everyone is having a great Sunday. I think I'm going to go celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a bowl of Lucky Charms.
