Free Fiction, Yo


Yes_Sir_Final_1600x2600They’re predicting thunderstorms here in the Washington D.C. area for the evening. I can’t fricking wait. Thunder, and the heavy pound of rain on the roof make the best music in the world for writing and reading. I hope everybody is having a lovely Sunday. 

In case you haven’t heard the good word, I’ve managed to get Yes, Sir up for free on Amazon, Kobo, and B&N. Many thanks to those who have downloaded, read, and left reviews. Yes, Sir is currently ranked the #1 free gay romance on Amazon, and has been since the day it went free. I’m so honored.

If you haven’t yet tried it out, I’d be grateful if you do. Here’s the info:

About Yes, Sir:

A New Orleans vacation takes an interesting turn when Grayson Harper lets a friend drag him along to see a voodoo priestess for a love spell. Suddenly he’s having very vivid dreams about a mystery man that seem all too real, and doing things in them he never thought possible. But what will become of the man of his dreams once he leaves the magic of the French quarter?

Yes, Sir


Yes_Sir_Final_1600x2600

I wrote Yes, Sir in 2011 in celebration of the original GayRomLit retreat. Finally, it has sexy new cover art created by the awesomesauce Pickyme, and it has been professionally edited and extended in length.  It’s a little different than my other stuff. Kinkier, and more about a man’s sexual journey, with a paranormal twist (okay that part isn’t different). In the end I still call this one a romance, because there’s a relationship and a happy ending but it’s definitely the smexiest of all my stories.  It’s on sale for the sexy low price of only .99 cents.

I hope you enjoy:

 “Don’t worry. I won’t restrain you for your first time.” The man, who hadn’t yet given his name, stood. Like he expected Gray to grab hold and follow.

Like that, Gray’s pulse took a pause and his mouth went barren. Desert dry.

“Wait.” Gray’s fingers hovered just shy of grasping the man’s hand. What were they talking about? They had sat politely across the table discussing rules of play over the griddle-seared gulf fish and fresh berries like it was one of Gray’s installation projects.

Only this was Gray’s body they were discussing. He didn’t have a single submissive bone in him.

“We’ll stop,” the man said. “The second I do anything you don’t like.”

A thousand doubts tumbled in Gray’s gut as they linked fingers and walked through darkened streets to an even darker basement.

Cover Reveal: Horn Gate by Damon Suede

Horn Gate by Damon Suede:

Open at your own risk.

Librarian Isaac Stein spends his lumpy, lonely days restoring forgotten books, until the night he steals an invitation to a scandalous club steeped in sin. Descending into its bowels, he accidentally discovers Scratch, a wounded demon who feeds on lust.

Consorting with a mortal is a bad idea, but Scratch can’t resist the man who knows how to open the portal that will free him and his kind. After centuries of possessing mortals, he finds himself longing to surrender.

To be together, Isaac and Scratch must flirt with damnation and escape an inhuman trafficking ring—and they have to open their hearts or they will never unlock the Horn Gate.

Loving Kindness…


Thanks for joining me on the Hop Against Homophobia! Leave a comment at the end of this post to be entered to win a copy of my contemporary short story “Feeling Neighborly” as well as a never before released vampire/werewolf short story called “Under the Full Moon.” Contest open to adult readers 18+ only.

I wrote and re-wrote this post several times. I wrote sad posts and angry posts, posts about religion and politics and personal opinions. I erased it all, because I truly believe that at the bottom line is that anger and fear are destructive and I didn’t want to write a destructive post.

I am many things. Mostly these days I’m an author and a mom. I don’t sleep very much, and I frequent the local Starbucks like they’re gonna put my name on a table. I get stressed. Through all of that my life revolves around love. Falling in love is what I write about. As an at-home parent, teaching, guiding, and loving my kids is what I DO. My job as a parent is to make it so that they can go out into the world someday and be good, kind, functional citizens who don’t need me any more.  My fondest wish is for them to grow up healthy and happy–and that they someday fall in love.

Period. If my boys are lucky enough to find someone who loves and respects them half as much as I, their extremely biased mother, thinks they deserve? I’ll be thrilled, regardless of who that person is, so long as they’re good to my kid.

When they look at me over their chocolate chip waffles in the morning and thank me for taking care of them, I can’t imagine wanting anything else.

I used to do a daily yoga and meditation practice. It’s a little more sporadic these days due to business, but I find when I make it back to the mat that the foundations are still with me. One of the things I learned, was a loving-kindness meditation: The gist is, you start out by offering loving-kindness to yourself, and then to someone you respect, someone you love, someone you feel neutral about…then someone you hate (for more info on this, you can go here). The idea, I think, is to help you keep an open heart. In the face of a thing like homophobia, I admit that can be difficult to do.

So that’s what I want to offer here today, on this International Day Against Homophobia. Loving kindness. To myself, to those of you who are friends, and those I don’t know. To those of you whose minds I hope with all my heart will soon be changed for the better. More than anything, to all the innocent babies, children, and young people out there who will someday need help and support in navigating your way through the confusion and questions you may have about your sexual orientation–I pray you will have the support that you need, and that you will always know you’re perfect just the way you are. That you deserve love and respect.

Love is love. It’s something everyone deserves.

(There are over 250 authors and bloggers participating today in the hop against homophobia, lots of really good thoughts on the subject and lots of prizes being given away. You can find the full list, here. Also, for a chance to win my latest vampire novella, Immortal Valentine, or another chance to win the free vampire/shifter short story, check out the HAH post over at Books Make Me Happy.)

Happy New Year


Wishing everyone a safe, happy, healthy new year! This week I’m working hard on my edits for my hot boy-meets-vampire novella, Immortal Valentine, coming Feb 12th to Amber Allure press. I’ve also been pitching in on Boxer Falls, a gay serial soap opera with Poppy Dennison and Damon Suede, and we’re looking for some guest authors to help with that as well! The first episode of that will be up just after New Years on the Goodreads M/M Romance group!   Oh yeah, I’m also working on my resolutions to get organized and to stop holding grudges when people hurt my feelings–really, the only person those grudges hurt are me. What are your resolutions?

Okay folks. Until next year, I leave you with The Male Form at NextModelMen.

M/M Woman Going Wylde


Come chat with me! Tomorrow, 12/9, the authors for Amber Quill press will be taking over Beth Wylde’s Yahoo group all day. Stop in to chat, ask questions, read excerpts, and all that fun stuff. I’ll be on around midday more than likely, and probably again in the evening–it’s a bit hard to plan these things when you have kids–I may be sharing an excerpt from my upcoming release, Immortal Valentine, as well. I hope you’ll stop in to enjoy all the authors, and I’ll make a point of sending out a twitter message before I jump into the chat.
