Duck! and News! and More News!

Hi Everyone,

Three posts in one, so if one part doesn’t interest you, keep reading another topic will turn up soon 🙂


Part One –

Duck! is out now!

image

It’s on Amazon, All Romance E-books and Goodreads. The print version is also on Createspace. Ever since midnight last night I’ve been waiting for it to go on line with Barnes & Noble so I could do all the links at the same time, but no luck yet. Will update when it goes on line 🙂

If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask in the comments section (or anywhere else where I’m bound to see it – I’m easy like that). If you’d like a review copy feel free to e-mail me.

In case you’ve managed to avoid reading it until now – here’s the blurb:

Raised among humans, Ori Jones only discovered he was an avian shifter six months ago. Unable to complete a full shift until he reaches his avian maturity, he still can’t be sure of his exact species.

But with species comes rank, and rank is everything to the avians. When a partial shift allows the elders to announce that they believe Ori to be a rather ugly little duckling, he drops straight to the bottom rung of their hierarchy.

Life isn’t easy for Ori until he comes to the attention of a high ranking hawk shifter. Then the only question is, is Ori really a duck—and what will his new master think when the truth eventually comes out?


Part Two –

I have an agent. Her name is Deidre Knight. Her agency is The Knight Agency and she’s really lovely. Huge shout out thanks to Tibby Armstrong for introducing us!

If you’re wondering what this means from a readers point of view, I’ll tell you where things stand at the moment.

I’m still going to be self publishing English language e-book editions and print on demand editions the same as I have been doing the last couple of years. I have four series on the go, and all of them will carry on as before – nothing cancelled, nothing altered. (Those four series are FIT Guys, Kinky Cupid, Avian Shifters and Werewolves & Dragons, btw.)

However, you might see foreign language editions of some of my books at some point in the future. Audio books are also a possibility.

Again, any questions, feel free to ask. I probably won’t know the answer, but you can still ask 🙂


Part Three –

I’m on Facebook. I didn’t actually kick or scream but a fair bit of dragging might have been involved, lol.

You can find my profile here – and friend me if you want to.

You can also find my author page here – and like that if you want to.

Everything’s a bare thin on the ground there at the moment, but I’ll add more as time goes on 🙂

Questions – well I know even less about Facebook than I do about agent, but you can take a shot if you like 🙂


And I think that is it for now…

Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!

*Hugs*

Axel’s Pup – Available to Pre-order Now!

100. Axel's Pup

Axel’s Pup finally has a release date! It’s going to be available for immediate reading on Wednesday 11th March but it’s available for pre-order on All Romance E-books and Amazon now. I’m intending it to go out to Smashwords and its various channels on the day or release.

So…

Axel’s Pup. You’ve been hearing about this one for a while! It’s a much longer novel than I’ve ever published before (176,000 words – larger than Duck! and Magpie combined!).

It’s Male/Male, BDSM, Human/Werewolf. There are motorcycles, and whips, and leather, and shifters, and tattoos, and kink, and I’m so excited about finally being able to share it with you I’m finding it hard to type because I’m literally shaking!

In some ways it’s the kind of book people who are familiar with my work might expect, in other ways it is a little bit different. I don’t use trigger warnings (for reasons I won’t go into here) but, like always, if you’re concerned about anything in particular you can email me and I’ll do my best to give you as much relevant information as I can 🙂

Also, if you’re a blogger/reviewer, and you’re interested in a review copy of the book, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll see what I can do. I know there are a couple of reviewers out there who I’ve spoken with about this book. I have a list, but if you want to send me an e-mail and remind me about things like what format you prefer that would be much appreciated 🙂

This is the Goodreads link.

This is the blurb:

As the landlord of The Dragon’s Lair and leader of The Black Dragons Motorcycle Club, Axel Carmichael has seen it all and done it all. He’s a respected and experienced dom. Nothing shocks him any more, and nobody catches him off guard.

When Bayden rides up to The Dragon’s Lair on a bike worth more than most men earn in a year, and immediately demonstrates that he has far more attitude than sense, it’s easy for Axel to write him off as a silly little rich boy who’s about to get himself killed.

But, there’s more to Bayden than meets the eye. He’s no silly little boy, rich or otherwise, and werewolves aren’t easy to kill.

And here’s an excerpt. Because it’s a longer book, it’s a longer excerpt – the whole first chapter!

Chapter One

Camping It Up Available Now!

99. Camping It Up Camping It Up is now available! Okay, so I’m super late with this. It’s actually been available for a week! You can find it on Amazon. For the moment, it’s exclusive to them. It can also be read as part of their subscritpion services. It’s also listed on Goodreads. Did you read the blurb last time I posted it? Here it is again, in case you missed it. When Lindon agreed to go away for the weekend with his boyfriend, Cal, it didn’t occur to him to ask Cal what he had planned. Lindon’s been looking forward to staying in a nice hotel and getting spending the weekend relaxing and getting discretely kinky with Cal at every opportunity. It’s not until they’re in Cal’s car and on their way that Lindon finds out what Cal actually has in mind for them. There is no nice hotel and Cal has no intention of being discrete. And here’s a little excerpt:

“That hotel looks really nice. Maybe we could…” Lindon trailed off as Cal drove straight past the hotel. Damn it, Cal hadn’t even slowed down.
Lindon took a deep breath and let it out very slowly. When he spotted the sign for another hotel some way down the road, he decided it was time for another tactic.
 
“Cal, you remember that project I was working on?”
 
“The one at the museum, for the Roman exhibit? Of course I remember. It was fantastic.” Cal let go of the gearstick and squeezed Lindon’s knee. He left his hand there.
 
“My boss thought I did well too. He gave me a bonus.”
 
“That’s great.” The heat from Cal’s palm soaked through Lindon’s trouser leg. It felt good, if somewhat distracting.
 
“So, we could check into a nice hotel for the weekend. I could pick up the whole bill, and…”
 
The hotel whizzed by.
 
Lindon folded his arms across his chest and glared out of the passenger window. Cal’s hand remained on his knee until they reached a turning advertising the Bay Head Campsite. The sign might as well have said “This Way to Hell”. There was no way Lindon could get through the weekend without letting Cal down if Cal insisted on sticking with the camping bollocks.
 
Lindon’s stomach turned over at the idea of failing Cal. His grip on his opposite bicep turned painful. Cal put his hand back on Lindon’s knee as they drove deeper into the campsite. Lindon closed his eyes. He didn’t want to admire the view. He didn’t want to see row after row of neatly put up tents and people who knew what they were doing. He didn’t want to be within a hundred miles of the bloody place.
 
Cal’s hand left Lindon’s leg again. The car stopped. “We’re here.”
 
Lindon opened his eyes and stared at the dashboard as if it might somehow save him.
 
“Anything you want to say before the scene starts?” Cal asked. His voice was brisk and no nonsense. He was already slipping into full-on dom mode.
 
It wasn’t the first time Lindon’s heart had raced at the start of a scene with his boyfriend, but every other time that reaction had been about expectation and desire.
 
Lindon swallowed rapidly as he imagined how their weekend was bound to go. He couldn’t blame his nerves on the fact that this scene would be longer than usual. It wasn’t that he’d be submitting to Cal for the entire weekend that was the problem.
 
Lindon glanced into the back of the car. Tents and cool boxes stared back at him.
 
“Ready?” Cal asked.
 
No, Lindon was not ready. But somehow, Cal’s tone had him nodding. “Yes, sir.”
 
“Out you get then.” Cal opened the driver’s side door. He was most of the way out when, as if sensing Lindon’s disobedience, he looked over his shoulder to check on him. He slid back into his seat when Lindon still failed to obey. “Lindon?”
 
“The last hotel we passed—”
 
“Not going to happen,” Cal cut in.
 
“But—”
 
“Get out of the car, Lind.”
 
Lindon closed his eyes again. “Firefly.”

Coming Soon: Camping It Up

So, as you may have noticed, my plans for frequent blogging didn’t come to much. My mind has been whizzing around in a dozen different directions lately. I seem to be starting a dozen different things, but not finishing any of them.

Blog posts never quite seem to go to the postable stage. I’ve got so many bit of news, I’m comfusing myself trying to put them all in one post. So, one thing at a time from now on!

Todays topic – I have a short story coming out next Wednesday with Resplendence Publishing 🙂

Camping It Up is a 5000 word coffee break length story. It’s MM, BDSM, cute and quirky. It’s being released under the Gems imprint.

On this one project I am reasonably organised.

I have a cover to share, made by the wonderful Les Byerley.

99. Camping It Up

I have a blurb:

When Lindon agreed to go away for the weekend with his boyfriend, Cal, it didn’t occur to him to ask Cal what he had planned. Lindon’s been looking forward to staying in a nice hotel and getting spending the weekend relaxing and getting discretely kinky with Cal at every opportunity.

It’s not until they’re in Cal’s car and on their way that Lindon finds out what Cal actually has in mind for them. There is no nice hotel and Cal has no intention of being discrete.

And I have release info: It will be out on Wednesday 25th February and, initially at least, will be exclusive to Amazon. As well as being available to buy from there, it will also be available to anyone subscribing to Kindle Unlimited.

If all goes to plan, I should be back tomorrow with another update on another project 🙂

*Hugs*
