Release Week Frenzy

So, on top of being release week for It’s Christmas Everywhere But Here, it was also a REALLY busy week at work. Not sure why. I would like to thank the folks that have taken the time to write, and those that have starred and/or reviewed the book on Goodreads or Amazon. I appreciate you taking the time to do that. I have a guest post coming over at Nautical Star Books this Friday, the 12th. I will say more about that once it’s live. Also, I’m not sure if the giveaway is still going on, but Christmas Everywhere but Here was featured in this post at Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews. So go check that out, along with the 19 other books featured. Now I’m going to go fold the laundry and then work on the knitted dishcloths I got voluntold to do so Mom...

Released: It’s Christmas Everywhere But Here

Released: It’s Christmas Everywhere But Here

Today’s the day! It’s Christmas Everywhere But Here is released today! You can buy directly from Dreamspinner Press, it should also be available shortly via ARE or Amazon if those are your preference. I did a guest post yesterday at Scuttlebutt Reviews talking about some of the background of the story, and including an excerpt. So I hope you go check that out. There is probably more I should/could say, but I just got out of bed and the caffeine hasn’t kicked in yet. Maybe I’ll be more coherent this afternoon. I hope you like Russ and David’s story, I had fun writing...

Christmas Is Coming

Christmas Is Coming

“Christmas” being a shortened version of the title: “It’s Christmas Everywhere But Here,” which is now on the Coming Soon page at Dreamspinner Press. The release date is December 3, 2014, which is a heck of a lot closer than it should be, yow. I have been busy the last month and a half because I got a new job, and then had to do all the things that come with a new job, like finding an apartment and moving and racking up the credit card and dealing with a paycheck when direct deposit hasn’t kicked in and the holiday makes the mail all wonky. Have been knitting a little, writing less (boo) and mainly just trying to settle in and find a new routine. And Thanksgiving is next week and my book releases the week after that and holy...

Cover Reveal: It’s Christmas Everywhere But Here

Catt Ford has done an amazing job, and the cover for my next release is ready. Click the image below to go through to the full-sized view. Christmas brings dreams of peace, love, and family time for most. Sadly, Russell Moore isn’t so blessed. Since his coming out and marriage prompted a less-than-joyful reaction from his religious parents, Russ has kept his distance to avoid their conservative disapproval. With his husband David deployed overseas for the second Christmas in a row, Russ gives in to the loneliness and takes his stepchildren to meet his parents for the first time, hoping the “goodwill toward men” spirit will overcome his mother’s zealotry. But Russ’s Christmas joy is too quickly deflated by his mother’s unmet expectations, leaving Russ...

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Which means you need something to warm you up! Time for Christmas releases today through Torquere Press. When your partner works a late shift for the holiday, and there’s nothing waiting at home except the damn Christmas tree, why not stay at the office yourself? Tim doesn’t care much for the holiday anyway, and there’s always more paperwork. A push out the door, a pot of stew, and a little holiday magic lets these two lovers find time for Christmas. I, unfortunately, don’t have time to chat about it this morning, I need to head out the door to physical therapy and class (it’s dead week). So you will hear more from me,...

Sooner than we think….

Sooner than we think….

I can’t believe we’re halfway through November already. Christmas is coming soon, and with it all the craziness of the season.  I was at the grocery store yesterday and people were already stocking up on food for the holiday. On December 4th, my new short story “Time For Christmas” will be released via Torquere Press. It’s a holiday themed contemporary romance about two men who don’t honor the season in the traditional way, but still find time to celebrate. I’ll talk a little more about the story, and where it came from, closer to the release date. At the moment, I’m headed out of town for yoga retreat. Going to spend the weekend relaxing and meditating, which will hopefully set me up for the rush to the end of the...
