Good Morning Monday ~ Holy crap, tomorrow is the first of May!

Tomorrow is May. Truly. This year is almost half done. I can’t believe it. But, as the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun… I’ve been crazy-busy. I mean, I’m always busy. I rarely ever get a minute to myself – I’m not even exaggerating LOL

This last week I took my daughter and niece to Sydney for a Harry Styles concert. I singlehandedly propped up the New South Wales economy for a while with the amount of shopping two teenage girls subjected me to, we spent a day at Taronga Zoo (my niece had never been on a ferry or to Taronga, so we rectified that) and we had a fab time. I was off social media (mostly) and it’s always nice to take a mental health break.

A little off topic here, but social media is a huge commitment for me. My main ones are Facebook –  with my general timeline, author page, and several groups – and Twitter, and Instagram. Don’t get me wrong, I do love them, but wow, it’s also a lot of work. I constantly worry that I’ll miss notifications or messages and people will think I’m snobbing them or ignoring them, so I do try and check and double check. It’s not always easy. Especially with FB being so hit and miss with any/all notifications and posts, so I do apologise if I have missed anyone.

I  love the interaction with readers, and friendships I’ve made online. I cherish them, I really do. But taking a day or two every now and then to spend time doing other things is absolutely recommended. I can’t be available to everyone 24/7. Not to readers, not to family. And no, not even to Ruby (my dog) as much as she doesn’t agree with, or understand, to be honest. She was VERY happy to see me when I got home. There was a LOT of kisses and zoomies. LOL

I also got home to a LOT of messages, posts, comments, and emails expressing utter LOVE for Evolved, which was wonderful! I am so thrilled that people are loving Shaun and Lloyd. I know that anything sci-fi tends to turn some people off, but loyal readers have been taking a chance and finding themselves thoroughly enjoying it (and 99% of people would like their very own Shaun. LOL Get in line. I’m first. haha)

For anyone who has missed it…

WIP Update: Since I was away for half the week, I didn’t get as much writing done as I’d have liked. My WIP, called Private Charter, is up to 24K. I was hoping this story would be about 50K in total, but given one MC has hired a yacht for two weeks and it’s taken me 24K to get them to day 2 of the venture, I’m thinking it might be a little longer…  LOL

I also have visitors this week and my kids go back to school on Tuesday, which means all sporting activities every afternoon also start again (you know how I said I’m always busy? Yeah, I wasn’t kidding LOL) therefore I have no clue how much I will get written this week. I want ALL the words but I highly doubt that’ll happen.

Oh, and I know I’ve previoulsy mentioned Thai translations but I can now confirm the following:

– SIXTY FIVE HOURS – mid 2018 (so, that means soon!)
– CRONIN’S KEY series – beginning in March 2019
– RED DIRT HEART series – beginning in March 2020
– FINDERS KEEPERS – October 2020
I’m super excited to see these! I can’t wait to share the covers with you asap.
Okay, that’s it for this week. *wipes brow* I need a holiday LOL  I hope everyone has a great week and I’ll see you next Monday! Until then…

Autism Awareness Month ~ Hopes and Dreams, and a contest~

Autism Fact:  People with autism are more likely to be the victims of violence than committing a violent act.

April is Autism Awareness Month and it’s always an honour to take part. This year the theme is hopes and dreams, which is another great topic and one we don’t reflect on enough. I usually only take stock of which goals I’d like to achieve around the new year, not really as a resolution, but more of a ‘am I going in the direction I want/need to be going’ kind of way.

I am truly lucky that I have my dream job – and I know this. I don’t take it for granted, and I work incredibly hard trying to produce the best books I can. I recognise not many people have the privilege of saying they live their dreams. And the one thing I’m trying to instil in my kids, is to do something they love when they leave school.

Not easy, I know.

In today’s world, most of us have to do whatever puts food on the table. I get that. I did that, for many years. And like all parents, I’d love to save my kids from doing that. My kids are nearing the end of their schooling (a few years to go) but there’s pressure on them to pick a career path. I tell them not to stress, after all, I didn’t fall into my writing career wholeheartedly until I was in my thirties.

To a fourteen and fifteen year old, that’s as good as ancient. LOL

But by the same token, I have to wonder which path I’d be on if I’d have found my true passion at their age. I’d always love reading and writing but had no idea it would be dream career. So if I could point my kids in the right direction now, to save them twenty years of jobs they hate, then I absolutely will. I can’t make the decision for them, all I can do is tell them not to choose a career focused on the money, instead focus on the love of what you want to do.

It can be my wish and hope, but it needs to be their dream and doing.

CONTEST:

For your chance to win any book title of mine (winner’s choice) answer me this: if you could tell your fifteen year old self one word advice, what would it be?

Mine would be to start writing earlier.

(I normally have comments closed on my blog, but I will be opening them up for this contest)  Please comment below.

That’s it for the Autism Awareness post. To check out the original, you can find it at RJ Scott’s site:  http://rjscott.co.uk/autism-awareness-month-2018

In case you’re not aware, or if you’ve been under a rock this last week, you might have missed my latest release!  Evolved is a little bit sci-fi, a lot romance, and so much fun!

BUYLINK

In 2068, androids are an integrated part of human life. Big Brother no longer just watches from the shadows. It’s in every household. 

Lloyd Salter has OCD issues with noise and mess, and he’s uncomfortable with human interaction. When his ex claimed the only thing perfect enough to live up to his standards was an android, Lloyd dismissed it. But two years later, after much self-assessment, he thinks he may have been right.

SATinc is the largest manufacturer of androids in Australia, including the Fully Compatible Units known as an A-Class 10. Their latest design is the Synthetic Human Android UNit, otherwise known as SHAUN.

Shaun is compatible to Lloyd’s every need; the perfect fit on an intellectual and physical basis. But Lloyd soon realises Shaun’s not like other A-Class androids. He learns. He adapts. Sure that SATinc is aware Shaun functions outside of his programmed parameters, Lloyd must find a way to keep Shaun safe.

No one can know how special Shaun is. No one can know he’s evolved.

Good Morning Monday! It’s Release Day for Evolved and a $50 Amazon Gift Card to Win!!

I’m so excited for everyone to meet Shaun! I’ve had an INCREDIBLE response to the ARC’s with reviews and feedback being wonderful, so a HUGE thank you to everyone who has let me know they loved it! It’s such a relief to get those first replies and even better when they’re glowing reviews.

In other news, my WIP titled Private Charter is now at 20K words, and it’s a LOT of fun to write!  It’s sexy and fun, and I had no idea the tropics could get this hot…  😉

I’ll be in Sydney next weekend, so not sure if I’ll get a post out, but I will try. Until then…

Good Morning Monday!! Who wants an Evolved Excerpt?

Another week. Holy hell. It’s now getting to the point where I’m scared to blink LOL. This year is flying!

My kids are now off school for two weeks, and will no doubt be driving me crazy. The joys of working from home LOL  I may have to sequester myself to the library for some quiet time. 😉

But I did promise an excerpt from Evolved, and considering release day is just SEVEN days away, it’s probably overdue. So, enough of my blabbering on…

So, without further ado… here it is 🙂


By the time my intercom sounded at nine fifteen the next morning, the butterflies in my belly felt more like stomping elephants. I buzzed the delivery team through and waited for the elevator to ping down the hall.

Breathe, Lloyd, I reminded myself.

My apartment was a spacious two-bedroom luxury unit on the top floor of the complex. Polished concrete floors, high ceilings, a bookcase as one entire wall, and floor-to-ceiling windows on the north-east facing wall. I liked the clean lines, minimalistic furniture. Well, I didn’t just like it. I needed it. Clutter and closed spaces made me anxious. My ex-boyfriend had found my apartment cold and clinical, but I found the whites and greys soothing, peaceful. Then again, he’d found a lot of things about me clinical…

The knock on my door startled me, even though I’d been expecting it. I opened it to find two men and a rather large crate. The first man smiled. He was wearing grey suit pants and a navy sweater. He showed me his ID. “Mr Salter, my name is Myles Dewegger. We have a special delivery.”

“Yes, yes, please come in,” I said, standing aside in invitation.

The second man wheeled through the crate. He was dressed all in black with a military style haircut, and he looked as though he belonged in a SWAT team. He was a rather large man, with bulging muscles and perfect skin, and I had to study him for a second. No, he was human.

“Nice place,” Myles said, looking around the large, open living room. “Are we all right to do this here?”

I closed the door and took a breath to steady myself. I wasn’t accustomed to having strange people in my house. “Yes, of course.” I followed him and stood next to the couch. “I thought Mr Kingsley might have attended the delivery. I assumed incorrectly, it seems.”

“Sasha’s a busy man,” Myles said with a smile. “Though if you’d prefer, I can call him and you can speak to him.”

“No, it’s fine,” I said. I was now staring at the crate. Oh boy. It was well over six feet tall, three feet wide. Shaun was inside. He was right there. I swallowed hard.

Myles read me. “Let’s introduce you, shall we?”

I nodded. “Yes, please.”

Myles and his helper, whose name I didn’t know, undid the crate and removed the front panel. My heart almost stopped. Inside, Shaun stood, packaged-in perfectly so as not to be damaged in any way. He was dressed in a dinner suit. A charming navy piece with a light blue shirt underneath his blazer, top button undone. His black hair was exactly as I’d ordered; short sides, longer on top, professional. His skin was warm ivory with a subtle hint of blush on his cheeks; his lips were pink and a perfect cupid’s bow. His eyes were closed, his lashes long.

He took my breath away.

The big delivery guy stepped in and unstrapped Shaun, then lifted him out. Right, that explained the need for muscle. Then he quickly wheeled the crate back to the front door, making the room neat again, leaving Shaun standing perfectly still in my living room.

Myles glanced at me. “Everything look okay?”

I nodded and had to focus on speaking so I could make actual sound. “So far, yes.”

Myles smiled. “So first we need to configure him to your home hub,” he said, looking around. He took out a small hand-held screen I recognised from the SATinc office. It was an android control panel. He tapped on both screens, I entered in a personal code, and Shaun was officially added to my Wi-Fi.

It was becoming so very real.

Myles seemed completely unfazed and oblivious to the fact that I was in the middle of a  monumental life event. He went on a spiel of specifications and diagnostics, developmental robotics, neural networks, artificial consciousness, proprioceptive sensors, and spatial cognizance, but all I could do was stare at Shaun.

Breathe, Lloyd.

Myles stopped speaking when he realised I wasn’t paying attention, and his pause made me look at him instead. He continued, “I’ll activate him, then we’ll require him to study your face for a few seconds. He has facial recognition, so once he recognises you as his custodian, he’ll be able to identify you anywhere.”

“Okay.”

“So if you’re out in public and you become separated, he will be able to find you.”

For the strangest reason, I found that comforting.

“And your voice. He’ll recognise that anywhere.”

I smiled at Shaun, though he still had his eyes closed.

“Are you ready?” Myles asked.

I nodded.

Myles held the small black screen toward me. He entered in a code and spoke clear and loud. “Please re-enter in your Wi-Fi code,” he said, averting his eyes while I entered my security code for Shaun’s wireless access. Then Myles added something else, and watching Shaun, he said, “Activate.”

Shaun opened his eyes.

They were the exact shade of blue I’d asked for. But he just stared blankly.

Myles entered in more codes, then spoke to me. “Please stand in front of him until I tell you to move.”

I did as I was instructed. Shaun was approximately an inch shorter than me, and he was even better close up. Being this close to him sent a curl of anticipation through me.

I could hear Myles tapping on the screen and then Shaun’s eyes focused on me. He was scanning my face, and then he looked down to my feet and up my body. It set my blood on fire.

Then Myles handed me the small screen and said, “Please read this out loud to him.”

I let out a breath and looked Shaun right in the eye. “My name is Lloyd Salter. I am your custodian, and this is your home.”

Myles took the control again and clicked on the screen a few more times, and something in Shaun changed. I saw it, the very moment it happened.

He became aware.

His gaze fell on me. “Hello, Lloyd,” Shaun said. His voice was a deep baritone, with a tenor that curled in my belly.

“Hello Shaun,” I replied. My voice was barely a whisper.

And then, throwing my world completely off its axis, he smiled. Not a perfect smile, but slightly lopsided in a very human way. If a simple smile could complete my existence, it was done. He was stunningly perfect.

“It is very nice to meet you,” Shaun said.

“Likewise,” I replied. I couldn’t stop staring at his eyes, and I swore the corner of Shaun’s lip twitched in an almost smile.

“Is that normal?” I asked Myles. “He’s so… human.”

Myles grinned. “It’s amazing, isn’t it? How real they are?”

I nodded, staring back at Shaun. So very real.

“As I was saying before, he has the spatial awareness and object manipulation skills of a surgeon. He can lift heavy objects with ease, but he can also hold the finest, most delicate glass object with precision. He has social intelligence; he can recognise and interpret, process and simulate human affects and empathy. He is, without doubt, the most advanced A-Class synthetic android in the world.”

Shaun tilted his head a little while he studied me, and I stared right back at him. So remarkable.

“He’s been uploaded with extensive knowledge of all requested data,” Myles said, holding the screen out for me to see. I glanced at it but couldn’t take my eyes off Shaun for long. Myles continued anyway. “Literary histories, world current affairs, everything you asked for has been preloaded, but he can access any information you require. If it’s on the web, he can find it, and he can discuss, converse, debate whatever you want.”

Wow.

“Now, as for the personal companion aspect,” Myles went on. Personal companion aspect was synthetic speak for sex. “All lubricants must be silicone based, not oil based, though I’m sure you’re aware. He can self-clean but he might like it if you help him.” I looked at Myles and he winked. “Yes, he has likes and dislikes. Though he’s been pre-dispositioned to your psych evaluation so there are no conflicts. He enjoys conversation, attention, praise…, touch. Sex.”

My heart rate took off.

Breathe, Lloyd.

I have the paperback proof too, and the cover is even more stunning in real life.

The photos honestly don’t do it justice. It’s so beautiful, and the colours are striking.

One more week, guys.  Just one more week!


WIP update:  Private Charter is currently just at 9K. I didn’t get as much written as I wanted this week, but I’m determined this week. Release weeks and the days leading up to are usually a write-off, but I want to really smash it this week. Fingers crossed my kids are on board with this. LOL. (I say, as every parent dies laughing)

Until next week!

Good Morning Monday!

What a crazy week it’s been! I was supposed to be home by now, but I’m currently still in Sydney. I came here for the Sydney Author Event (not as an author) and booked our flights home for the Monday instead of the Sunday. Luckily I realised my error before we left for the airport LOL!!  I’m such an idiot!  I said “OMG I can’t believe I did that!” and my daughter replied with “Um, what? You’ve been saying the Ed Sheeran concert was in April and the Harry Styles one was in March (Ed was March, Harry is April) for six months!”  LOL so maybe she has a point.

Anyway, she get’s an extra day off school and we spent yesterday propping up the economy (shopping) so she considers my blunder a complete win. 😉  And I got to spend time with the amazingly talented and beautiful duo of Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine. OMG these guys are rockstars and are so down to earth and lovely. I played assistant to Brooke at the Sydney Author Event (because OMG they were SO busy) and I had the BEST time! I also met a lot readers who love my books and it is amazing to be able to put faces to the names on social media, and get to chat with them! Especially here in Australia (I’ve only really done this at GRL in the US) so to do it here and to meet fellow Aussie M/M lovers was very special to me. Thank you to everyone who travelled and made my weekend perfect! ❤


This week On Davis Row is on sale for 99c as part of a BookBub deal!  So if you haven’t grabbed it yet, now is your chance. It’s on sale at all retailers too, not just Amazon. 🙂

As for Galaxies and Oceans, I still haven’t sent it to my editor yet. I want to do another read through, I think.  Everything is still on track for a July release, so that’s no issue, but I just want to make sure I’m completely happy with it. Patrick and Aubrey are incredible characters and I want to do them justice.

WIP update: I haven’t added to my WIP since last week! It’s still very new – I’m barely 3K into it, but I can tell you their names are Foster and Stuart, and the book is set in Far North Queensland. And I can assure you, it’s not just the tropics that are hot! *fans self*  It’s gonna be a scorcher! 😉


That’s all for today!  Hopefully I’ll report back next week saying I had a great week of writing, and there might even be an exclusive excerpt of Evolved!

Until then…

ON DAVIS ROW IS ON SALE FOR 99c!

Yes, that’s right! For a short time only, On Davis Row will be on sale for just .99c at all retailers! I’ll post the links here, but please bear in mind, some retailers may take a few days to roll out the price change. So if it’s not 99c at your preferred dealer, please try again tomorrow!

Good Morning Monday! How on earth is it April already??

I hope everyone had a great Easter, if you celebrate it. If not, I hope you enjoy the discounted chocolate that’s in every store afterwards 🙂

It was another super busy week! I got some feedback and proofing edits for Evolved, which was incredibly fast. And all my proofers have LOVED it, so that makes me feel so much better about it. It’s always daunting to get that first feedback…

I’ve also trudged through the first read-through of the first draft of Galaxies & Oceans, and have sent it off to some beta-readers. I think the timing might be a little off in the first part of the book so I’m asking for some second opinions.

It’s currently 86K words and I’m still hoping to have it out in June! I found this pic online and I just love it – it’s kinda perfect for Patrick and Aubrey ❤


In exciting news, I’m hoping to start my newest book this week – well, notes at least. Maybe a chapter or two.  I found a cover online that sparked a rabid little plot bunny and despite not being on my writing schedule, these are the characters currently talking to me, so they get to go next 🙂

It will be called Private Charter. I’m not expecting it to be overly long, maybe 40K? But I’ve said that before 😉  It will be hot and steamy, and I can’t wait to start it!


Oh, and in audio news, BREAKING POINT (Book 2 in the Turning Point Series) should be out very soon!! I’ll post the buy link as soon as it hits! I’ve heard the proof and all I can say is Sean Crisden freakin’ NAILS his portrayal of Matt. Oh boy… So good!

And SPENCER COHEN BOOK 2 is up for pre-order and will be out April 10th!!! And as always, Joel does a stellar job! His interpretation of Spencer is utter perfection!


So, that’s it for this week!! Next week I will be in Sydney for the Sydney Author Event. I’m not an attending author, but I will be there to help the very lovely Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine ❤  But I will hope to do my Monday post… it might be a little late though. There should be photos though!! I can’t wait!

Until then! ❤

Good Morning Monday ~ The Cover Reveal of Evolved!

Man, it’s almost April. The mornings are cooler here now, and the sun sets a little earlier, so it’s getting harder to ignore that the year is really pressing on. It’s kinda crazy how fast it seems to go now, it’s like one book release after another. Which is not a bad thing 😉

So in WIP news, I finished Galaxies and Oceans!!  OMG it truly felt like the manuscript that would never end. LOL!!  It finished at 84.5K words, though this week will be spent going back over it and fixing/adding/deleting so there’s no saying what the final word count will be. But Aubrey and Patrick’s story is down, at least, in first draft form. I’m still aiming for a June release, all things going well, and I will keep you all posted on progress.


I do have an amazing cover to show off! Evolved is coming out in under four weeks!!  *flails*  and I can NOT wait for everyone to meet Lloyd and Shaun. It’s a different kind of story, given that Shaun isn’t human. And it is sci-fi, but mostly it’s just romance. Shaun is an android, but he’s more human than most people. I know that sounds weird, but by the year 2068, humans  have retreated to living mostly digital lives, where relationships are online and are somewhat clinical. Along comes Shaun, who is programmed to feel, so there is something very human about how he adapts to life with Lloyd in the physical, non-digital life. Anyway, I’ll let the readers’ decide if they agree with that 😉

So, enough explanations…

The cover was made by the super-talented Reese Dante. And it is so utterly perfect, I just can’t even deal. LOL  I am so in love with this cover, and I’m sure you can see why…

So that’s it for this week! Next week is Easter, so if you celebrate, I wish you all the very best!  I should be posting next Monday, unless I’m in a chocolate coma… keep your fingers crossed LOL

This week I’m hoping to have the first draft of Galaxies and Oceans whipped into shape and then I can start thinking about which story to write next! Ah, the possibilities of a new book. You know, I sure do love writing the words The End, but writing Chapter One is pretty freaking cool too.

Until then… ❤

After Wilson Curtis was publicly outed, his restaurant business left in tatters, and dumped by his closeted boyfriend, he goes to Key West alone. There he meets Simon Stanford and Adam Preston. Fascinated by this couple, he is soon invited into their bed for some holiday fun.
But once isn’t enough, and the offer is extended for the remainder of his stay. As they get to know each other, in and out of the bedroom, sparks fly, and ten days is all it takes to change their lives.
When it comes time for Wil to leave, with tensions closing in and time running out, tempers flare and emotions fray. Beneath the physical attraction and the foolish misunderstandings is the realization these three men aren’t ready to say goodbye.
Wil soon learns that love isn’t always conventional, and the only thing better than giving your heart to one man, is giving it to two.

Actually, it’s been two weeks since I posted. And a HUGE thank you to the few people who emailed me to see if I was okay! *hugs you all*  Yes, I’m fine – was just away from home last week so couldn’t do my usual weekly update.

I was in Melbourne for an Ed Sheeran concert, which was great!  I had three teens with me LOL so there was a lot of shopping, but we had the best time. 🙂

Despite all the traveling (driving 4 hours then flying for 1.5 hours each way to get there) and being gone for 5 days, and being ridiculously busy when I got home, I did manage to get some writing done this week. My WIP, called Galaxies and Oceans, is at 73K words and I probably have 10K to go. Well, I’m hoping. I’d LOVE to get the first draft done this week. Though I don’t think that’ll be happening, considering I spent most of the day at the hospital with my son for a suspected broken ankle. Don’t worry, he’s completely FINE – except being super pissed and disappointed at having to miss a tennis and a basketball tournament this month. *sigh*


This week is the re-release of Three’s Company!! It’s very coincidental that I get the rights back on my birthday (March 21st) to my very last book with a publisher. From then, all books will be self-published (not all translated titles or audios, obv). It’s like the universe is giving me a little present! 🙂

I’m sure I’ve shown off the amazing cover, but if anyone missed it before, here it is again!

New buy links will be posted as soon as the book goes live. It will take a few days for Amazon to verify the republication, but I’ll post the links asap.


I also have a release date for Evolved!! Get your Kindles ready for April 23rd!! It will be exclusive to Amazon first up. I’ll be sharing the AMAZING cover and blurb with you next week, so stay tuned!!

Oh, and just a heads up that On Davis Row will be on sale for just 99c from around the 5th of April for about a week. The sale will/should be on all sites (Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Smashwords, iBooks, etc).  It will be a part of a Bookbub deal, so if you’ve been holding off on buying it, wait a little while longer and grab yourself a bargain!

Okay, so that’s it for this week! Take care, until then!! ❤
