Writing, writing, writing...

Been doing a fair amount of it lately and it feels great. Last night, I started my reader-request freebie, based on this photo. Meet my heroes--and don't mind them. They're a bit busy at the moment. *g*

The reader's setup was: 
"The first look between them had been innocent, or so he'd thought. I'd love to see exactly how things changed and where they'll end up."

Got 1K written and I'm happy with how it's setting up. The trick will be keeping it from turning into a book...though I suppose that wouldn't be the worst possible outcome!

I've also made a couple thousand words worth of progress this week on Locke, Stock and Barrel, the next book in my Vampires & Mages & Weres, Oh My! series. You met Locke in Through the Red Door, and he'll be getting his mate, Aspen, in this book. But will he be able to keep him?

When my boys aren't keeping me busy, I'm in the spa...not literally (I wish!), but working on my short story Monsoon Treatment. I should make another trip to Dosha, actually, for research. You know...just to make sure everything is accurate. :D

I'm also writing a song. Not a real one, per se, but one that will be included in One More Wish, the sequel to One Wild Wish which will be coming out on September 22nd. At the time I wrote and submitted the book, I put in INSERT SONG LYRICS HERE. So at some point, I'm going to have to...insert. Which means I have to write them. I know what I want to say with them, but making it sound good is a whole 'nother thing. "Wish" me luck! ;)

I had a hilarious idea for a new M/M paranormal story while I was brainstorming for the reader request story. I'm fleshing it out now, and since it's really hitting me, I might have to bump something else from the schedule and write it first. Not sure if the idea will fit into any of the worlds I've already written or if it will be a free-standing one, or (horrors!) another series. Either way, it'll be on the fast-track! More info when I wrap something up...hopefully very soon! :)

Released Today: Stranger in Black at AQP

Thrilled to announce that my latest book, Stranger in Black, is now out at Amber Quill Press.

Christian wants closure on his relationship with a closeted cheater, so he dons a disguise to see the evidence for himself. He attends the annual masquerade ball on the arm of his friend, looking for the Stranger in Black. But when he finds him, the farewell encounter in a back room doesn't quite go as planned

Jarrod goes undercover, wearing the black and gold mask to ferret out Chris--the  "other woman"  his best friend's fiancĂ© is fooling around with. He isn't prepared for his reaction to the sexy vision in the white gown...especially since he's gay.

It's not the unmasking that exposes their dual deception, but the gloves...and the pants...coming off. Now Christian and Jarrod need to work together to protect the innocent party in all of this. And along the way, they just might become more than strangers...
