I thought it might be useful to have one place to collect all links to reviews, interviews, and places you can buy my books. Also, I'm anal and like things to be organized. So here we go!

There’s been a bit of a discussion going on among some Dreamspinner authors lately about people who find ways to read our stuff for free, either by downloading it from P2P filesharing sites or by visiting mainstream sites that make a significant portion of the books available online prior to purchase. To be honest, neither of these phenomena have ever bothered me as much as they seem to bother others, and I’ve been pondering why that is. Because I suffer from chronic can’t-shut-up-itis, I thought I’d go ahead and articulate where I am on all this.

In defense of filesharing. Sort of.Collapse )

It's December 1, which means Naughty or Nice, the 2010 Dreamspinner Advent Calendar, is now available! There are 31 stories, which you can buy individually or all at once. My story is The First, which you can buy by clicking right here (read an excerpt here). Or click here to buy the collection as a whole.

Those of you who know me through fandom stuff might also be interested in Sharing Christmas by Shae Connor (noelleleithe) and Silver Thaw by Nora Catherine Price (rebop13). I've had the pleasure of reading both stories, and they're both wonderful! As of course you knew they would be.

Dreamspinner is offering a Holiday Discount from now until the end of the year for 20% off any purchase. The code is HolidayDreams, and it can be used twice by each customer. This isn't limited to holiday titles, so shop til you drop, peeps! What's a better stocking stuffer than a nice hot m/m story? Better than fruitcake any day. :D

Holy cow, it’s the holiday season already. Can’t quite believe that, but since we’re two weeks away from the official release date of Dreamspinner’s 2010 Advent Calendar, I thought it would be a good time to provide a little excerpt of my contribution to that collection, a short story called “The First.” The excerpt is below the cut.

As a reminder, the story will be available for individual purchase starting December 1, but you can pre-order the whole Advent Calendar (31 stories in all) right now at a significant discount. Please click here for more info. Note: pre-sales end November 25.

Thank you for reading!

By the way, I promise the story gets happier after that. Heh. :)

ETA: Story now available for purchase!

So as I mentioned before, my story “The First” is going to be included in Naughty or Nice, Dreamspinner Press’s 2010 Advent Calendar. This is a collection of 31 holiday-themed stories, one for every day in December, ranging from 5,000 to 18,000 words each. I promised to post more information when it became available, and it has! Here’s the blurb for my story:

Two weeks earlier, a stormy breakup caused by Jimmy’s fears and Adam’s frustrations split them apart, never mind that Adam had stolen Jimmy’s heart. But Jimmy is unable to turn off his feelings—despite his protests to the contrary—and when Adam’s meddling older sister throws them together again on New Year’s Eve, the new year will begin with either a reconciliation or a final parting of ways.

The rest of the blurbs can be found right here. And check out the fabulous cover art for the collection!



The stories can be bought individually (they are $1.49, $2.99 or $3.99, depending on length; mine is $2.99) or as a set. Either way, they will be available December 1. However, you can pre-order the set now at a significant discount. If you are interested, the set is $39.99 now, will be $49.99 as of November 1, and will be $64.99 on December 1. Buying all the stories individually would add up to a total of $92.69.

Just passing along the info! Hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend. :D

I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be publishing a third story with Dreamspinner Press! My short story “The First” will be published as part of Naughty or Nice, the 2010 Advent Calendar. This is a holiday-themed collection in which readers get one new m/m romance, each with a holiday twist, for every day in December. I'm so happy to be included!

Will provide more info as it becomes available. But for now, yayyyyyyyyyy! :D

Stole this from josephine_myles and various others on my friends list. Fed it the first chapter of The Cellmate and this is what it gave me:


I write like
James Joyce

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




Funny, I didn't know he wrote m/m prison porn. Guess I should have read Ulysses after all.

Hi all! This Saturday, July 3, I'll be doing the "Meet the Author" event on the Dreamspinner facebook page. I'll be there all afternoon (1 pm - 6 pm EST) chatting, answering questions, posting excerpts, and running contests for a free ebook or two. If you get a chance, I'd love it if you felt like stopping by to say hi!

Thank you! ♥
