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:
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.
I have a blurb:

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 🙂
This is one of my longer stories – not quite a novel, but longer than most novellas, lol.
This book has proven to be a bit of a marmite book – readers either love it or hate it. Sloan, the dom, is flawed. I think his biggest flaw is that what he says doesn’t always reflect how he really feels. He likes to sound like a hard-arse. You have to look at his actions rather than his words to see what he really feels. I quite like characters like that – but your milage my vary – you have been warned, lol.
“Stand under the mistletoe until midnight, naked, bound and blindfolded. Submit to any dominant who wants a piece of you.”
At the junior doms regular poker night, anything can, and frequently does, happen. Add in crackers that contain dares instead of jokes and two men’s lives might never be the same again.
When Carl applied to join the best leather club in the city, he had no doubt about his preference for dominance. It was only when he set eyes on Sloan that he began to wonder if submission might be far more fun than he originally thought.
With no time for club politics and little interest in rising through the ranks, ever since experienced dom Sloan moved to the city and joined the club, he’s been quite content to bide his time among the junior dominants and keep a brotherly eye on a young man who is obviously out of his depth amongst his more sadistic contemporaries.
One man has to do the dare. The only question now, is which man will it be, and are either of the friends ready for the way their relationship might change after a night of Mistletoe and Submission?
And here’s a quick excerpt: Continue reading
I have more Christmas stories than I have weeks in December, so this week I’m doubling up!
Gay Divorcee – Jones is a sweetheart, Grayson is a lost soul. It might not be the most conventional Christmas tale, but I love how they come from such different places but still find common ground.
Grayson gave up on the idea of gay marriage when he became a gay divorcee. Can Jones remind him that not all gay men are like his cheating ex?
Gay marriage, civil commitment and equal rights. Jones doesn’t care what it’s called. He wants that security to be part of his future, and he wants it to be available to everyone else too. He’s happy to tell his dominant friend Bernard, and anyone else who will listen, how wonderful it will be when every gay man can live happily ever after with the man he loves.
Gay divorce, cheating husbands and bad decisions. Grayson used to think that the right to marry another man would cure all gay ills too – until he married and divorced Claude. The adorably submissive Jones obviously needs someone to explain to him exactly why gay men should never get married before he makes all the same mistakes Grayson made.
Before the Christmas celebrations end, someone will have to accept that they are wrong and the other man is right. The only question is who?
And here’s a quick excerpt: Continue reading
The Gift was my first ever story to be published back in December 2008!
I love this book. I can’t say it’s been a huge success, but I love it anyway. It’s one that makes my cry every time I re-read it. Nicky is such a sweetheart and even though I *know* everything will work out in the end (hell I wrote the ending, so I should know!), there’s one bit where Nicki doesn’t think it will, and it gets me every time.
I know that a lot of people have been put off by the so often done Christmas Spirits theme, which is a pity, because I think people who like stories like Duck! could really like this one too.
This one features the Spirit of Christmas Past. The other two spirits were written by other authors. Each story stands alone. At some point, I am hoping to write my own versions of Christmas Present and Christmas Future.
(Heads up – there’s a (all male) menage scene in this one.)
Just because Charles doesn’t see any point in making a fuss about Christmas, that doesn’t mean he can’t tolerate Nicky’s passion for tinsel and holly. He’s never forbidden his pet from enjoying any of his Christmas traditions and he thinks that’s enough.
Nicky has one ambition – to give his master a perfect Christmas. He’s willing to do anything to make that happen – even if it means taking risks and asking his master for special privileges – even if that means inviting a third man into their bed.
The Spirit of Christmas Past isn’t used to visiting Christmases that involve quite so much nudity, passion or kinky sex. Leading a dominant man like Charles through the Christmases isn’t easy – and keeping his eyes off the frequently naked Nicky is impossible. Still, all the spirit can do is enjoy the show – because his job is to bring lovers together and fade away inconspicuously. That’s the plan. However, if someone suddenly wants to thank him, who is he to say no?
Here’s a quick excerpt:
This week’s look back into the past is only going back as far as August 2013 – but stay tuned for next week, where we’ll be going way back to the begining! This one’s a short story too, but on the positive side, it’s over twice the length of last week’s short story 🙂
I really enjoyed writing about Stuart and Matthew. They’re good guys – guys who love each other.
They’re also guys who really aren’t on the same page at the start of their story – guy’s who’ve yet to get kinky with each other. Neadless to say that changes during the course of the story 😉
Here’s the blurb:
Matthew and Stuart have been dating for over five months and Stuart thinks things are going well — right up until the moment Matthew suggests that they try something different — the kind of different that involves bondage, spanking and leather.
Matthew’s been building up to making this suggestion for weeks, dropping subtle hints and hoping Stuart won’t completely freak out at the mention of kink. Now, with his desires out in the open, all Matthew can do is hope that introducing something different will make their relationship perfect rather than destroy it completely.

Since a new Gem short story came out this month, I thought I would start my Throwback Thursday column a Gem from way back in March 2012. I don’t think many of you have this one – Amazon took exception to the bare backside on the cover, which makes it really hard to find through their site.
This story was prompted by an inspiration pic from Chris of Stumbling Over Chaos. It’s a quirky little tale featuring by far the biggest sex toy any of my characters have ever experimented with – the pic of it is after the excerpt…
Here’s the blurb:
Jay’s a good submissive. Richard has never regretted taking him under his protection. He’s never regretted deciding that it was time for them to move into their first house together either. The only thing Richard doesn’t understand is why Jay’s been so damn determined to nag him into choosing something for the house.
When Jay comes home to a find a shock in their hallway, he’s about to find out exactly what his master thinks of his nagging…
