Hey, all! Long time no update, I know, but I have a cool giveaway for you guys to celebrate my official author page hitting 1000 likes on Facebook! 😀

This prize goes to one person. Here is a pic of everything in the prize box.

I decided to do something a bit different for this giveaway. Each prize relates to one of my books/series in some way.

From left to right:

-Hedgehog erasers, representing Avery the hedgehog shifter from the Portland Pack Chronicles.

-An Inigo Montoya themed mug, representing The Party Boy’s Guide to Dating a Geek. (It reads: Hello my name is Inigo Montoya you drank my coffee. Prepare to die.)

-A USB flash drive disguised as a camera, for Asher the photographer from One True Thing.

-A $15 iTunes gift card, representing all of the rock stars in the Lucky Moon series. (Note: This card is only usable by US residents. If the winner is from outside the US, it will not be included. The winner will be offered something else of equal value.)

-A Batman/Superman friendship necklace, for Jonah and Laurie from Wanting. Together the two halves form a heart, as you can see below.

-A notebook and a 5-pack of pens, representing the authors I’ve written – Erik from One Small Thing and Shepherd from Bookmarked. (The journal cover reads: Shoot for the Moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.)

-A wolf coloring book, representing Dylan and the other wolves in the Portland Pack Chronicles.

-A pack of Mermaid Shimmer crayons, representing Wick, my merman from Love Rising. 

-A pair of tool-themed socks, representing the guys from the Hard Hats series. (Note: These are men’s socks that fit men’s sizes 7-12/women’s 8.5-13.5. Below you can see me modeling my own pair.)

Bonus:

If so desired, the winner can also choose one of the paperbacks pictured below, which I will sign if requested. (Moonstruck is also available, but I didn’t have a copy on hand to include in the photo.)

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.

Backlist Spotlight & Audiobook Giveaway: One Small Thing

Hi, everyone! May the 4th be with you! ♥

may-the-4th-be-with-you

I know I said I’d be doing these on Sundays, but today, Star Wars Day, is a special for One Small Thing. See, one of our main characters, Erik, is Star Wars obsessed (to put it mildly). He loves the movies and uses them as a sort of therapy (if you’ve read the book, you’ll understand). As such, on the 3 year anniversary since One Small Thing was originally released, we thought it would be cool to spotlight the book!

I don’t know how it’s gone for MJ, who has a lot more solo titles out than I currently do, but One Small Thing has certainly been one of my most successful books to date. It all started when I had a random thought about a flamboyant young gay man who unexpectedly finds himself with a newborn. It went on from there and I bounced my ideas off MJ as I was planning. Originally, I had planned to write the story alone, but when I tried starting it in third person, it just wouldn’t flow. Eventually I decided I needed to switch it to first, but then I thought that alternating POVs would be best and I worried about being able to create two distinct first-person voices on my own. I was discussing with MJ and asked her if she wanted to come on board to help me write it, since we’d recently co-written Moonlight Becomes You, the first book in our “Lucky Moon” series. She said yes, and voila, here we are with One Small Thing. Even years later it remains near and dear to my heart.

To celebrate the anniversary, I’d like to give away another copy of the audiobook, which just came out last month.

Blurb:

“Daddy” is not a title Rue Murray wanted, but he never thought he’d have sex with a woman either. Now he’s the unwitting father of a newborn named Alice. Between bartending and cosmetology school, Rue doesn’t have time for babies, but he can’t give her up. What Rue needs is a babysitter, and he’s running out of options. He’s on the verge of quitting school to watch Alice himself when he remembers his reclusive new neighbor, Erik.

Erik Van Nuys is a sci-fi novelist with anxiety issues to spare. He doesn’t like people in general, and he likes babies even less. Still, with his royalties dwindling, he could use the extra cash. Reluctantly, he takes on the role of many – and even more reluctantly, he finds himself falling for Alice and her flamboyant father.

Rue and Erik are as different as two people can be, and Alice is the unlikeliest of babies, but Rue has never been happier than when Alice and Erik are by his side. At least, not until he receives an offer that puts all his dreams within reach and he’s forced to choose: the future he’s always wanted, or the family he thought he never did.

Audiobook Giveaway: “One Small Thing”

Hey, peeps! Just posting a quick giveaway for the audiobook fans out there (or anyone tempted to give one a try). I’ll be giving away another copy of the audiobook next month on the anniversary of One Small Thing‘s release, but MJ and I just got our codes, so I figured why not have one now. 😀

Giveaway: Une vraie chose (Une chose, tome 2)

Hey, all! The French translation of One True Thing came out yesterday (ebook only, for now). Woot!

I’ve decided a giveaway is in order. 🙂 See the bottom of the post for details on how to enter.

OneTrueThingFR

Blurb:

Une chose, tome 2

Dustin Davis rêve depuis des années au prince charmant, mais aucune des grenouilles visqueuses qu’il a embrassées jusque-là ne s’est métamorphosée. Lorsqu’il voit Archer Kyriakides pour la première fois, Dusty pense que sa chance a enfin tourné. Archer pourrait être le bon. Le Grand Amour. Mais l’histoire qu’ils commencent passe du chaud au froid et laisse Dusty dans l’incertitude : pourquoi leur relation est-elle parfaite un instant et chaotique le suivant ? Ça n’a aucun sens… Jusqu’au jour où Dusty rencontre le jumeau identique d’Archer, Asher, et comprend qu’il côtoyait les deux sans le savoir.

Asher Kyriakides rêve de devenir photographe de mode, mais il est coincé avec un travail qu’il déteste et un frère Don Juan irresponsable dont les habitudes le rendent complètement dingue. Surtout lorsqu’il apprend qu’Archer fréquente le petit blond tout mignon qu’Asher n’arrive pas à oublier. Déchiré entre loyauté et désir, Asher se contente de prévenir Dusty qu’il ferait mieux de se tenir à l’écart.

Mais quand Archer finit par pousser le bouchon trop loin, c’est sur l’épaule d’Asher que Dusty va pleurer et Asher ne peut le lui refuser. Il ne leur faut pas longtemps pour réaliser qu’ils sont tous deux en train de tomber amoureux, mais plus d’un obstacle leur barre la route, et l’un d’entre eux, et pas des moindres, n’est autre qu’Archer, qui n’a pas encore tout à fait fini d’être une épine dans le pied de son frère.
