Good Morning Monday! And a surprise Christmas story!

You read that correctly! I released a surprise Christmas story!

A VERY HENRY CHRISTMAS!

Blurb:

A 12,000 word short story about food, fluff, and fornication.

Henry wants to share his and Reed’s first Christmas Eve being engaged by hosting dinner with their closest friends. Henry loves food and he loves to cook—he plans an entire menu and decorates the house to rival a department store, but even though everything’s perfect, something’s not quite right.

As Henry and Reed prepare for a merry Christmas, no matter what happens, you know it will be a very Henry Christmas.

It’s super short (only 12K words long) in which we get to spend Christmas Eve with Henry and Reed, and their friends. It’s fun, sexy, and sweet, and I don’t want to give too much away so you’ll need to read it to find out what happens!

And also, the rights to Clarity of Lines return to me this week — on the 13th to be exact! Yay!!  I’ll be re-releasing it ASAP. It’s been re-edited and has a gorgeous new cover. There is no new added content. This is what the paperback cover looks like, and it will be available as soon as approved by Amazon.

It always takes a day or two for Amazon to approve re-released books (they need to validate the copyright etc) but I will post links as soon as I have them.

That’s all for today! Until next week… ❤

Good Morning Monday! OMG it’s December!

Wow. Almost another year gone… It’s been a crrrrrraaaazy year, that’s for sure. I’ll do a recap of my 2017 as we get closer to the end of the year, but I just want to say thank you all for still being here as we wind down another year. ❤

I’m posting this from Sydney – it’s a beautiful day here, I’m about to go spend the afternoon doing kids things but just wanted to write this before I go.

Thank you all for the amazing release of On Davis Row.  Noah and CJ are currently at #1 in all three Gay Romance categories on Amazon (in US, UK, Germany, Australia, Canada, France, and #2 in Netherlands)  ❤  I know I’ve said this a thousand times, but I can’t do any of this without you!

Amazon


A quick WIP update – I’ve started something new and rather different. I decided to write this because I found a premade cover that caught my eye, and now I’ve actually started to write it, I’m thinking that the cover won’t match. LOL So typical…

It will probably be around 40K, romance/erotica, and it delves into artificial intelligence, synthetic androids in a futuristic setting. I’m hoping for a March release.

So this is a super short post because my kids are trying to walk out the door.

Oh, and I’ll be doing some giveaways on Facebook throughout December, so if you don’t follow me there already, I suggest you do 🙂

Until next week! ❤

Good Morning Monday! Its’ On Davis Row Release Day!

Yay! I love release days!!  On Davis Row is OUT NOW! You can grab it at:

Universal Amazon Link

I can’t wait for you all to meet Noah and CJ ❤

Blurb:

Nearing the end of a suspended jail sentence should unlock a brighter future for CJ Davis, only the chip on his shoulder is as hard to shift as his bad reputation. Born into a family of career criminals who live down Davis Road, an address the cops have dubbed Davis Row, his name alone is like a rap sheet that makes optimism impossible.

Brand-new parole officer Noah Huxley is determined to see the good in men like CJ. After all, he knows firsthand that bad things can happen to good people. His colleagues mock his doe-eyed optimism, but Noah soon sees CJ’s bad attitude and bravado are weapons he uses to keep people at a distance.

Both men know one simple mistake can change a life forever. At first glance, they might seem to be polar opposites. Yet underneath, they’re not that different at all.

On Davis Row is 95,000 words long, is priced at $3.99, and is available on KU.

 

Good Morning Monday ~ My God, it’s almost December…

Can you believe it? The countdown to Christmas is on… *shudders*

Anywhooo, last week was another super busy week for me. Including being super sick yesterday, what I still managed to get done:

  • Wrote 14K on my WIP, now at 39K. Tentatively now titled Finders Keepers.
  • Signed a contract for Sixty Five Hours to be translated into Thai.
  • Completed two rounds of edits on On Davis Row (95K words x 2)
  • Sent out ARCs for On Davis Row

What I have to do this week:

  • Finish the first draft of Finders Keepers
  • Complete final proofing edits on On Davis Row
  • Give the final publishing draft of On Davis Row a polish before uploading into Amazon and hitting “Publish” for next Monday! Eeeeeek!!
  • Complete edits on the re-released version of Clarity of Lines (Thomas Elkin 2)

As you can see, things are just a little hectic 😉

I’m also taking part in some great Christmas giveaways! I’ll post more when it get’s closer, but there’s much fun to be had and many contests to be won! 🙂


In Audio news, Red Dirt Heart 3 won Best Audio of the Month at LoveBytes!

I’m so grateful to Joel Leslie for giving Charlie and Travis the perfect voice, and to RJ Scott who made me publishing this series in audio possible ❤

Also in audio news:

The Audio of The Weight Of It All is up for Best book/audio of October at SkyeBook Reviews!

Okay folks, that’s it for this week!  Next Monday is release day for On Davis Row! The first ARC reviews so come in have been incredible, so I hope my readers love Noah and CJ too!

Good Morning Monday! On Davis Row Cover and Blurb!

Good Morning Monday! It’s been another busy week, but seriously they all are. It’s my son’s birthday this week so he’s had friends over this last weekend. Let me tell you, not only can six teen boys can make a helluva lot of noise, but they can mow through a truckload of food. LOL Amongst other RL things, I have managed to get some writing done.

My WIP, now titled Finders Keepers, is at 25K, and I’m still thinking 40K will see it done. It’s a super cute fluffy story of Griffin and Dane and a dog called Wicket. 🙂 I’d like to have it done by the end of November, but I’ll be away for a few days next week, so maybe not…

And of course, November 27th is the release day for On Davis Row! I’ve done one round of edits (my poor, poor editor LOL) and can’t wait for everyone to meet Noah and CJ. I’ve shown the cover before but I have the blurb for you as well!

On Davis Row will be exclusive to Amazon and will be an immediate release (no presales). Though I will be hosting Release Day giveaways and other fun stuff, so stay tuned!

 

Good Morning Monday! November = Nano = New Book, New Characters!

Well, November came around awfully quickly, didn’t it? I’m not sure when/how that happened, but wow, we’re now in the countdown for Christmas… o.O

So I’m doing the Nano thing – which is short for Nanowrimo, which is short for National November Writing Month. It’s a world-wide writing group that aims for each person to write 50K in the month of November. I can usually write that in a month anyway, but by the end of the year, I find the kick in the pants helps with my focus.

If you’ve joined Nano and want to buddy up, you can find me HERE.

And I’ve started a new story! Tentatively titled Lost and Found, it’s going to be a shorter, fluffy contemporary. Although I don’t plan or plot or outline, so I really don’t know how it will end but I can say it’s set on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and tells the story of Griffin and Dane, and a dog called Wicket. I’m currently 10K into it and imagine it will be about 40K long. I know I say that a lot and the book ends up at 80K but I’m pretty certain this one will stay short. Fingers crossed, anyway.

Maybe it will be ready for a January release? I’ll be sure to keep you posted. 🙂

That’s it for now. Until next week! ❤

Good Morning Sunday… wait what? aka the Turning Point Edition

I’m a day early because it’s only Sunday but I have something to share with you 🙂

Breaking Point (Turning Point, Book 2) is now live on Amazon, and to celebrate, all Turning Point books will be 99c each. The sale will only last a week, so be sure to grab it while you can! That’s almost 800 pages for just $3.00!!

NEW BUY LINKS FOR BREAKING POINT ARE:

Amazon Universal Link

Smashwords

iTunes

Breaking Point should be 99c everywhere – except Australia and Canada (because Amazon hates us and we have to pay $1.30). The other two books are only on sale at Amazon, because of pricing-matching restraints.

And for the other Turning Point books, you can check out these links on sale at Amazon only:

Point of No Return (Turning Point, Book One)

Amazon Universal Link

Starting Point (Turning Point, Book Three)

Amazon Universal Link

Matt & Kira are where it all kind of started for me. They were the first book I submitted for publication back in 2011, and to this day they are, and forever will be, very special to me.

In case you’ve forgotten what I envisioned them to look like, here’s a little picspiration for you! 😉

Marlon Teixeira as Kira Takeo Franco
Daniel Craig as Matthew Elliot

I hope you enjoy this super sale! I won’t be doing my usual Good Morning Monday post, but I’ll see you all next week!

Until then…  ❤

Good Morning Monday ~ Denver Edition!

Denver, Colorado, I am in you!  I’m currently sitting in the lobby of the Marriott in Denver. Literally.

I promise I will post more pics of my trip to the USA when I get home and get organised. I will say though, that GRL has been a wonderfully fun time and I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up with old friends and meeting new ones! The absolute best part for me is being with my book family. You know how it is, we can talk books to our friends and they all nod and smile (and probably think we’re crazy) but everyone who attends GRL gets it. Like, really gets it.  These are my people, and that’s what I love most.


Just a quick post really to update you on BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. It is finally free on Amazon, but not in Europe. Amazon are yet to explain to me why this is, but I’m working on it. You can find it at Smashwords, B&N, and iBooks.


And a heads up that BREAKING POINT will be re-released this week. The rights return to me on the 26th and I will be doing my best to get it back out asap. Fingers crossed for the 27th.


Okay, so that’s it for this week! I will post more on my trip next week and share some photos! Much love! And until then…

 ❤

New Release Today! And it’s FREE :)

Yep, you read that right. That free book I’ve been talking about for a while is OUT NOW!

Best of Both Worlds is a drabble story. What’s a drabble, you ask? Drabbles are, according to Wikipedia,

drabble is a short work of fiction of around one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space.

Sometimes drabble-fiction is just one drabble. A haiku, if you will. Sometimes it’s lots of them to make one full story. And that’s what Best of Both Worlds is. It’s a 20,000 word story told in 100 word increments/chapters. It’s not like a “real” (properly structured) book.

The gorgeous cover, which I don’t believe I’ve shared with you yet, was made my James at Go On Write, and I saw it on a presale site and just HAD to have it 🙂

BLURB:

** This 20,000-word story is told in drabbles: each chapter consisting of only 100 words.**

Sebastian Gilman meets a guy on a dance floor every Friday night. He knows nothing about him, not even his name, only to find one day this familiar stranger turns up on his building site and they need to work together.

Ryland Keller knows better than to get involved. Alone and half a country away from home, he revels in isolation until a handsome man in a gay bar turns his world upside down.

Sebastian wants to help Ryland recover from a horrible past, but only if Ryland can let his guard down long enough to see that he can have the best of both worlds.

And yes, it’s going to be perma-free (permanently free).  Currently, I’m waiting on Smashwords to distribute to B&N and iTunes. Amazon will only price-match to $0.00 if the book is listed on B&N and iTunes. It might take a few days, but I’ll be sure to post the links asap.

For now, you can get it from Smashwords for FREE. The listed price at Amazon is currently .99c because they won’t list anything for free without being forced to price-match. The links are:

FREE – Smashwords

$0.99c – Amazon

 

Enjoy! And happy reading!

 

Good Morning Monday and what a bloody week it was!

OMG this week… So busy, but productive, thank God! What I got done this week:

  • Wrote 16,000 words to finish the first draft of On Davis Row 🙂
  • Wrote the blurb for On Davis Row (I swear, the 92K word story was easier lol)
  • Completed edits on 82,000 words for the re-release of Breaking Point (Oct 27th)
  • Organised/ordered 96 paperback pre-order books to be delivered to Denver
  • The Weight Of It All was released on Audio
  • Negotiated a contract for all FOUR Spencer Cohen books to be done in Audio
  • Imagines and Perfect Catch came off KU and went to other retailers
  • Set up a CafePress store!

Not to mention the real life/mum things I’ve been doing all week. My kids go back to school this week, so I’ll have some free hours to get everything ready for my big trip to America next week!

Speaking of my trip, I leave home early early next Monday morning (16th) so there’s a very good chance there will be NO post from me next week. And the following Monday, I’ll be in Denver, travelling back to LA, ready to fly home at midnight. So there might not be a post from me for the next two weeks. I’ll be sure to make up for it though with lots of pics when I return.

I’m so excited to meeting up with everyone again, and meeting new faces! I can’t wait!!


For those who may have missed previous posts, this is the gorgeous cover for On Davis Row. I can’t share the blurb yet because it’s unedited. Release date should be late November 🙂


I can’t remember if I’ve shared with you the new cover for Breaking Point… The very talented Reese Dante made the three covers for the re-releases. Due to be out on October 27th, Breaking Point has been re-edited and tidied but no new content has been added.

Be sure to grab POINT OF NO RETURN (book 1 in the Turning Point Series) while it’s still on special for just 99c!


The audio of The Weight of it All was released this week to RAVE reviews! I’m so thrilled people are enjoying Henry and Reed’s story in audio as much as the book, and the wonderful narrator, Joel Leslie, really brings Henry to life.

You can find it at Audible HERE


Tantor Audio have requested all FOUR Spencer Cohen books!!  I’m beyond stoked for these boys to go to audio, especially Yanni’s Story, which I’d never have been able to afford to self-pub into audio because of its length. No dates yet, but I’m imagining they’ll be spread out over next year! Stay tuned for more details.


All my books will be coming out of Kindle Unlimited for now. If and/or when I decide to put them back remains to be seen. They probably will but I’m happy for them to go wide at the time being. (New releases will be in KU and Spencer Cohen 1 has two more months).

Imagines is the next title to be released wide.

You can now find Imagines at:

Smashwords

Payhip

And I’ll share the links to B&N and iBooks when they become available.


Perfect Catch is also going wide!

You can find it at Smashwords and Payhip!

Other retail sites to follow asap!


And my new swag store is now at Cafe Press!! There are lots of new and fun products, so be sure to check them out!


So that’s all my news this week! This week will be busy with travel plans and getting packed and organised. I have some real life things to take care of this week before I leave, so I doubt there’ll be any writing, maybe some tweaking of drafts etc, but that’s about it.

Until then… ❤
