Just in case anyone is wondering, yes, I’m still writing! :)
I’m working on Mason’s Regret, which I’m pretty sure is going to be the next novel I finish, and Taken with Tony is coming along. Of Love and Zembores is waiting on my brain to settle and for me to finish that next pen name book I started last year. ;) But summer is coming and I’m feeling productive so I can say pretty confidently that Mason’s Regret will be ready in a few more months at the outside and sooner if things keep going well. :D I’m also holding off on a few other stories because I just can’t work on all of them at once no matter how much I want to.
The paperback edition of Gerald’s Lot (Wolves’ Heat) is finally available! :)
Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA
It should be available at the other online bookstores like Barnes & Noble, Books a Million, and Book Depository in the next few weeks, if it’s not already (sometimes it just takes longer to show up at those stores). :)
Of Monsters and Love (New Canton Republic) is also now in paperback.
Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA
And Gay for Alex (Love Is) has made a particularly pretty paperback too, in my opinion. ;)
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Amazon UK | Amazon CA
The reissues of The King’s Guard and The King’s Gambit (Hend & Yurt) are also available with their pretty, new covers.
Whew! Now I can go back to concentrating on all the books I’m trying to write. :D Mason’s Regret is surprising me in a very pleasant way, while Taken with Tony and The King’s Deception are coming along nicely. :) The only story giving me trouble right now is One to Tame! Brylan isn’t as tractable as I’d like, that’s for sure. Which also surprised me in His to Keep, because he seemed so easy going at first and then he just didn’t turn out that way at all!
There are a few other wips I have going too, but they have no names and aren’t connected to any of my ongoing series. One is in-space science fiction (male/male of course) and the other is a time travel/ghost story (also male/male of course!) ;) I’m also working a bit on my Lynne Sterley stuff, because I really do want to get to Boston’s story and I can’t do that if I don’t get the other books written first.
All in all, I’m having a busy time of it, but I am loving every minute I get to spend with the guys in my books. ;)
I have trade paperbacks for several books coming soon. :)
I’m really excited to see how the new covers look on the Hend & Yurt paperbacks. So far I’m very happy with them. I think they’re the ones I’m most looking forward to holding just because I think they’re so pretty! :)
Just for anyone checking, here’s an update! Gerald’s Lot comes out today. It should be live by tonight. As usual, I’ll post links when I have them and will update the site right away.
Also, a little update on release dates for the future. I have absolutely no ability to guarantee release dates for any of my books, so I’m not doing any more of them. :) This will be the last book where I’ve posted a possible release date. In the future, they’ll just come out when they’re ready because the only thing I can guarantee is that I’ll keep writing because it’s what I do. :) I hope that’s acceptable, and if not, I’m very sorry but I’m not changing my mind. This has been the most stressful few months of my life trying to get promised books out on promised dates! I just don’t work that way.
Sorry about the change up (really, really sorry!), but Gerald’s Lot will be coming the 13th instead of the 8th this month. Something’s come up that’s made it impossible for me to get the book out this week so I’ve picked the very next Monday, the 13th, for the revised release date.
I’ve only had to change an official release date for a book one other time as far as I can remember, but I’m going to have to do it.
I hope it’s not too much of an inconvenience and I’ll be back to post book info soon. :)
Also, for some reason WordPress has decided not to send me email notices for comments anymore, so I’m sorry it took so long to approve the comments on the last post! I have no idea what that’s about but hopefully it will get fixed soon.
I can finally give a release date for Gerald’s Lot. It’s later than I’d hoped but I’m erring on the side of caution!
February 8, 2017
This one’s been a bit wild for me, taking a lot longer than usual for me to write. But it’s also been fun and I have to say it: I love Gerald. When you finally get to read his story, I hope you will too.
I can’t help but fall a bit in love with these guys every time I write a story. :)
I’m about to start on the next Wolves’ Heat book already and I’m actually very excited about that! It’ll be nice not to have such a long delay between this one and the next for anyone still following the series after such a long wait for Gerald’s Lot! :)
I’ve got some new covers for the Hend & Yurt series! :D
I’m really pleased with them, and I hope you like them as much as I do. They look a lot like fantasy covers, but that’d be because this is very much a fantasy series—except with gay men, yummy relationships, and lots of gay sex! ;) It’s very lighthearted for the most part, with a few bits of drama here and there, but I like it and think it’s really fun.
I’ve committed to replacing these this year, so I’ll be making these new ones live very soon. :)
And then there’s this one… :) Which says Book Four, but I’m not committed to that just yet, so I’m separating it here. I might have it say “A Hend & Yurt Novel” and save the numbered books for Leon and Geran. I mean, it’s definitely coming sometime after The King’s Deception, but it isn’t Leon and Geran centric. :D
My god. I just wish I could write faster. I have so many books I want to write!
**Yeah, it’s going to be late in the day before it’s live. I’m probably the only one surprised by this.**
Gay for Alex is finally coming on October 28. I had hoped for the 20th, then thought maybe the 25th, but nope. The 28th it is. :D But finally!
I can’t believe I wrote a contemporary story without paranormal elements. That kind of setting is so hard for me. I love science fiction and fantasy, and mixing it up with the male/male romance I love is just my favorite thing in the world. But I had this idea and I really wanted to write it. Gay for Alex is totally just male/male contemporary romance—with nary a paranormal, science fiction, or fantasy element in sight. :o
The book turned out nothing like I thought it would turn out when I started it, but I love it anyway. I adore Dayton and Alex so much that it’s embarrassing. :D
Anyway, I’ll be getting the description up soon and a new updated cover image (the old one I mocked up was for the “Gay for You” title I didn’t end up with).
I hope there’s interest in this one when all’s said and done, because I’d really like to revisit this world—and these guys! I already know exactly who’ll be in the next book if I get to write it. :)
I’m playing with the idea of a redesign for the covers for the Wolves’ Heat series. But… I kind of like the style of the current covers, without people on them. Then again, I really like handsome fellas on books covers, because it’s possible I’m a bit shallow like that even though I try not to be. There’s just something about a man’s body that really attracts my eye… ;)
So, here are a few ideas I’ve got for Ian’s Choice, Devon’s Gamble, & Brendan’s Fate. I’m just not settled on the idea and I really need to be because I have to decide before next month when I’m planning to get Gerald’s Lot out and that cover needs to be done ASAP.
THESE ARE SAMPLES ONLY. Definitely not ready for distribution anywhere but here. :)
Some of the text is identical, when it definitely shouldn’t be.
Feeling any love for these? Prefer the way things are? Feel free to let me know in the comments. :)
I got an email from All Romance this morning, saying Of Monsters and Love has hit the Allromance.com Bestseller List. It was a very nice way to start my Sunday morning.
I ended up really loving Agg and Rafe and I hope some of you have enjoyed their story. :)
In other news, still busy getting Gay for Alex ready for later this month. I’ve set the tentative date for release to October 25 and I’m feeling pretty good about it! I’m getting excited! This book has been so fun for me. I just adore Dayton and Alex and I’m really hoping some of you will really like them too. :)
