Hi, all! GRL is fast approaching. For those of you attending who would like to meet me, these are my “official” events. I’ll also be around throughout the retreat, so if you see me, grab me! 😀

Event: Featured Author Book Signing
Location: Trillium 2
Time: 2 – 5PM
Date: October 18, Saturday
Have any books you want signed or just want to say hello? This is the time to stop by my table! I’ll also have a limited quantity of “Lucky Moon” themed door hangers to sign, for anyone interested, as well as some gift cards and hedgehog themed items to give away (if you follow me on FB, you’re probably aware of my hedgie obsession by now ;D). Those will all be first come, first served.
For the first time since 2011, I’m going to have a Christmas story! This is a big change from my last one, Zombie Wonderland. No holiday gore this time around. 😉 This time I have a cute, little elf and the human he’s in love with.
I put a lot of heart into this story, so if you’re looking for a sweet and touching holiday-themed tale with some fantasy elements, be sure to check it out!
Garnet Evergreen has never heard of an elf abandoning the North Pole for a human, but he yearns to be the first. Ever since he saw Wes, the boy with sorrowful eyes, Garnet felt an undeniable kinship. Over the years, he’s watched that boy grow into a man, and now he’s determined to give Wes a Christmas he’ll never forget. If only Garnet had thought to test his father’s sleigh before leaving…
Orphaned as a child, Wes spends every Christmas alone at his cabin. When he’s woken by a suspicious boom and finds a wrecked sleigh and an unconscious elf, he doesn’t know how to react. Wes isn’t fanciful. He doesn’t give much credence to the stories about Santa Claus and flying reindeer. But a part of him wants desperately to believe when Garnet promises forever, even if life has taught him that no one ever stays…
Expected Release Date: December 17, 2014

For my French readers, if you’ve been wishing Une petite chose (the translation of One Small Thing) was available as a paperback, good news! It’s coming in November from Reines-Beaux. I’m so excited to have another foreign language paperback. I’ll make another announcement once it’s released.
Hey, all! Check out the cover for Ringing True (Wanting #2). As with book one in this series, the cover was designed by the fab LC Chase. 😀
And the tentative blurb:
When his boyfriend, Laurie, sweeps him off on a romantic getaway, the last thing Jonah expects is a marriage proposal. They’ve only been together for two years, and they’re about to move to a new city before Laurie starts law school in the fall. Not that Jonah plans to say no. With both of them pursuing degrees, the timing isn’t perfect, but calling Laurie his husband will be a dream come true. Together they decide to take a year before setting a date. Little did Jonah realize the trials that year would bring.
Laurie always knew law school would be difficult. He just never imagined how completely it would consume his life. Add in a flirtatious new roommate who can’t take a hint and a fiancé who complains about feeling neglected, and Laurie wonders how he’ll make it through with his sanity intact. When Jonah starts volunteering at the local GLBT youth center, Laurie hopes it’ll be exactly what Jonah needs to fight off his loneliness. But he didn’t count on the boy Jonah would meet there—or the bond that would form between them, threatening to tear his and Jo’s relationship apart before they can even say “I do.”
Release date TBD.

Hey, y’all! Good news. Yesterday Kade Boehme and I got an offer from Dreamspinner Press for our first joint project, Wood, Screws, & Nails. It’s a contemporary M/M romance, and barring complications, it should be out sometime in April/May 2014.
I know that’s a bit of a wait, but we’re hoping it’ll be worth it. For now, I can at least share our tentative blurb. Hope you like it. 😉
When Aaron Costa’s closest friend gets injured and leaves him in a bind, he offers to pay his son, Julian, and Julian’s friend, Malachi, to assist him with remodeling the family lake house over the summer.
Malachi jumps at the offer. As a broke college student, he could use the money. On top of that, Aaron Costa is one of the sexiest men he’s ever seen. A summer with Aaron for eye candy sounds like a dream. Then, unexpectedly, Julian starts flaking on his responsibilities, and Aaron and Malachi are forced to spend long hours alone, drawing them closer together.
Aaron fears acting on their growing attraction, both because of their age difference and the fact that while he’s comfortable with himself and mostly out of the closet, he’s never openly discussed his sexuality with his son. Finally, temptation proves too hard to resist, but despite the intensity between them, Aaron worries about how their relationship can last when Malachi is the same age as his son and he himself is closer to forty than thirty. Worse than that, he has no idea how Julian will handle not only learning his father is gay, he’s also dating his best friend.
