Release dates for November and a new release!

Hi everyone!

I have two announcements today.

First is that I finally have set release dates for Magpie and Celebrate.

Celebrate will release on November 1st.

Magpie will go up for pre-order on the first, and release for real on the 14th November.

My second announcement is that an amazing friend of mine – Bronwyn Green – has just released her first ever BDSM MM story! Bronwyn was the first friend I made when I was first accepted for publication way back in 2008 – I love her to bits 🙂

Here’s the cover by the lovely Kris Norris.

The blurb:

Ten years ago, Morgan Weaver walked away from everything he loved—his burgeoning career as a composer, his cello, and his best friend, James. Family obligations and guilt keep him tied to a job he hates, and his dreams have collected even more dust than his instrument. 

James Shepherd was left reeling when Morgan abandoned not only their dreams of writing and performing together, but their friendship. James forged on to become an internationally known musician, but he’s always felt Morgan’s loss and has never been able to shake the feeling that he’s responsible for the other man’s choice to leave everything behind. 

A simple request from Morgan’s sister brings the men together in a way neither of them expected, and long-denied desire bubbles to the surface overwhelming them both. Knowing it’s only temporary, Morgan finds himself lost in a haze of submission, finally able to experience being at James’ mercy and determined to enjoy it while it lasts. James, however, has other plans and is equally determined to show Morgan he can have all he’s ever wanted—including what they have together.

The Next Six Months

Hi Everyone!

I have cover art – lots and lots of cover art.

I also have news about what you can expect to see from me over the next six months.

(Quick heads up, these stories haven’t made it onto my website yet, so clicking on a pic won’t take you anywhere.)

Here we go…

November  2015

Two stories coming out this November.

Celebrate is a short story that catches up with Ori and Raynard from Duck! and which takes place in between Duck! and Magpie. It’s about 9,000 words long. It will make no sense if you haven’t read Duck!

Magpie is a 80,000 word novel. It was previously released by Resplendence Publishing. This is the second/indi edition. It’s been re-polished but the plot has not changed. I don’t think it is necessary to buy the new edition if you have the first one – unless you want to, of course, in which case go ahead 🙂

I really love the covers for this series! Like all the other covers here, they’re by the fantastic Kris Norris from Round Table Author Services.

December 2015

December sees a re-release of a short story called Hot in Here. It’s a follow up to Time To Do (published by Pride – formally known as Totally Bound) and catches up with Rigby and Brennan as their relationship progresses, and won’t make any sense unless you’ve read that book. It’s free 🙂

5. Hot in Here

January 2016

Another free story re-release. This time we’ll be catching up with Tristan and Cody from Gay Like You (again published by Pride/Totally Bound. Once more, the follow up will make no sense unless you’ve read the original story.

2. Make a Wish

February 2016

Finally something completely new! Sticks and Stones is the next story in the Kinky Cupid series. The main characters in this one are Dan – the bartender we met very briefly in Base Over Apex – and a new character.

Some bits might make more sense if you’ve read the previous books in the series (Once a Brat and Base Over Apex).

Base Over Apex is getting a new cover to match the new series theme, but the content isn’t changing.

March 2016

We’re back to re-releases of free short stories now. This one is Anything in a Skirt. It catches up with Baxter and Spencer from Gay Until Graduation. It will make much more sense if you’ve read that book.

7. Anything in a Skirt

April 2016

One more free short story re-release. This one is a stand alone, so no need to have read anything else first. It’s called Two Twinks and a Truck.

10. Two Twinks and a Truck


And that is as far as certainty takes me.

There are a few different options for what will come out in May. A lot depends on energy levels and what-not. Hopefully it will be something people will like 🙂

In case you’re wondering if there is a method to my madness, the free short stories are intended to fill in those months where nothing new or of any real length comes out.

One last thing – my Queer Romance Post went live a few days ago, drop by to meet my friend Danny and enter a giveaway!

October Newsletter – Queer Romance – Coming Soon – Questions and Answers

Badge-1-300x300

Hello everyone!

As you might have noticed, September shot by me so fast, I completely missed it. Although, to be honest, I wouldn’t have had a lot to say about September if I’d actually managed a newsletter during that month – other than, I’m spending September doing all the things I didn’t manage to get done in August, lol.

Anyway, new month, new start, and I’m going to start by letting you know where I stand on my various on going projects –

Avian Shifters Series

Thank you to everyone who bought, read, reviewed and contacted me about the new edition of Duck!

I’ve finished tweaking Magpie. It’s already been proofed by the lovely Shannon, and will be going off to the equally lovely Chris in the next day or two. So, still on course for a November release. It will probably go up for pre-order on the 1st and release properly about two weeks later (exact date to be confirmed after I check when Armistice commemorations fall this year.)

I finally pinned down a title for the short story that will follow on from Duck! It’s going to be called Celebrate. I’ve just ordered cover art for it. All going to plan, it will release on November 1st.

Celebrate focuses on Ori and Raynard and takes place in between Duck! and Magpie. It isn’t finished yet, but it will be short. I usually work on under 5k being free and 5-10k being $0.99.

Kinky Cupid

The series has grown, but it’s not my fault. You can all blame my Facebook fried Lee. He’s the one who put two extra ideas in my head, lol.

What this means in practice is that I’ve had to tweak the schedule. The third book in the series will come out in Feb 2016 as planned. Followed by book 4 and book 5 in 2017 (book 5 being the new slot for the re-do of All the Gear). Then in 2018, book 6 will come out, along with an indi edition of book 1.

Book 1 is Once a Brat – it’s currently with Riptide Publishing. I don’t intend to change it when I get it back, I’m only doing that so I have the rights to the whole series for print and audio etc.

Werewolves & Dragons

I love how enthusiastic so many people are about the next book in this series, but it is going to be a little while before I get a chance to go back to this series. Add in the fact it takes about a year for me to write a book this length, and it looks likely to be 2017 before it will go on sale.

FIT Guys

I have quite a few more stories planned, but I’m probably going to have to wait until Kinky Cupid is done before I can turn my attention back to this series. On the positive side, I don’t think people mind so much with this series, since it isn’t anywhere near as popular as the longer paranormal ones 🙂

Moving on to other topics –

October is Queer Romance Month. Click on the link to check out the blog posts – I think three will be posting each day! Mine will go live on the 21st. It’s all about my friend, Danny.

If I can, I’ll do a couple of spin off type posts on this blog to go with the Queer Romance theme. That said, you’ve probably worked out by now that blog posts aren’t my strongest point – neither is doing things in the month that I intend to do them in!

I’ve done a few updates on my website. I finally got the Duck! page to load up with the Barnes & Noble link on it. The coming soon page has been update. I also made a page for my currently unavailable titles.

I’m still working on re-polishing and re-releasing my free short stories. The next one that is republished will be Hot in Here – I think that will be in December.

The Goodreads ask an author thingy seems to be quite popular at the moment, so I’m thinking about doing some sort of weekly – FAQ – Friday’s Answered Questions slot – either here or maybe on Facebook. If there’s something you’d like answered, feel free to let me know 🙂

I’m also planning a post answering questions about Duck! since there were some that it wasn’t possible to answer within the story itself. Anything you want to know, let me know that too 🙂

Another thing you could let me know, if you feel so inclined, is – is there any interest in me doing giveaways for signed print books or does everyone prefer ebooks?

One last thing – nothing to do with writing, but I’m back on pintrest. I recently deleted all my pins and I’m starting again from scratch. I’ll mostly be using it to keep track of colouring, crafts and various collections.

I think that’s it for now. Go check out Queer Romance Month!
