Sales, Pre-orders, & Works in Progress

Hi, all! 😀 Just a quick note about my pre-orders and sales and what I have going right now.

HookLine&Sinker 400x600

Blurb:

When they were teens, Castor McCormick was the bane of Blake Kowalski’s existence. Their mutual animosity led to summers filled with rivalry. Now, nearly two decades later, Cas is moving back into the neighborhood to live in his grandmother’s old house. Blake tells himself he isn’t interested in seeing how snarky little Cas grew up, but when his mother dupes him into visiting his former nemesis, he finds out “pretty” can evolve into “sexy as hell” on the right man.

Cas didn’t think he wanted to see Blake again. No one has ever pushed his buttons like the arrogant boy he remembers from their youth. Turns out, the adult version of Blake still gets him hot under the collar—and everywhere else. With Blake on leave from work to nurse an injured leg and Cas taking time to move and unpack, they form a tentative friendship that turns into a sexual affair neither man can deny. But when Cas’s job sends him out of state to deal with a difficult client, their new relationship will be tested, and if they fail, Blake’s broken leg might not be the only thing to end up scarred. 

Release date: November 19

Also available for pre-order (and on sale!) is The Working Elf Blues. Right now, LT3 Press has it for 15% off, but if you wait until the weekend I’m at Bent-Con (Nov 7-9), you can actually get it for 25% off. 🙂

The Working Elf Blues - 500x750

Blurb:

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…

Release date: December 17

Writing Update

Currently I’m working on the outline for my hedgehog shifter book. Those who’ve been following me for a while know this one has been a long time coming. I’m working on it with a coauthor who shall, for now, remain nameless, but we’re having a lot of fun plotting and look forward to starting very soon. Our hope at the moment is to have the book done by the end of the year or early next.

Also, MJ O’Shea and I are in the middle of revising Moonstruck for its eventual rerelease next year. It’ll be getting around 12K words, including both new scenes and extended ones and whatever other revisions we make to the original.

There are a couple of other projects I’m researching right now too. Exciting things are coming! Keep an eye on my blog or follow my newsletter to stay up to date on all my news.

Catch you later. ❤

Book News

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!

Also coming soon…

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.

Works in Progress

HL&S – A spin-off of Wood, Screws, & Nails. – Outlined. Starting soon.

S&S – In planning. My story for the Love’s Landscapes event in the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads. If you’re a member, you can see the prompt here

The Working Man’s Guide to Wooing a Blue Blood Prince (Clumsy Cupid Guidebooks #2) –  with Xara X Xanakas – Plotted and started. Temporarily on hold. Hoping to have this one released in the late summer/early fall, if possible. We’ll see. Wish us luck!

Simon’s Story – This is the as-yet-untitled contemporary story I started for NaNoWriMo.  It’s going to be a pretty angsty ride, and I had to put it on hold temporarily when one of my family members became hospitalized and the content started hitting a little too close to home. But I’ve been wanting to tell Simon’s story forever, so I certainly will be going back to it!

**Update on the One Thing Series** 

I know I’d said this series would be continued, but, unfortunately, that plan has now changed. The “One Thing” series will stand completed with One Small Thing and One True Thing. I thought long and hard about this, and it wasn’t an easy decision, but I think I’m ready to move on to something new. I apologize to the fans who were hoping for books for Josh or Archer. But there will be new and hopefully exciting things to come from me, both alone and with co-authors, so be on the lookout for those! 🙂 

Prepare to get nailed!

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. 😉 

 

Renoviranje studija za dizajn_996729171

 

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.
