The Well – Preorder Link and Cover Reveal Coming Soon!

So, I know it seems like I announced I was on hiatus only yesterday and then suddenly I was back. The truth though is that I took almost a full year off of writing — from January 2016 until late October or early November. I’m still not writing on any kind of regular, full-time basis, but I did finish one short novel called The Well. It’s a romantic suspense, with just a bit of a paranormal twist. Here’s the blurb:

Twenty years after prom queen Cassie Kennedy is brutally murdered, six teenagers break into the house where she was killed to hold a séance. Haven knows his cousin Elise only wants to scare the crap out of him and his friends, but he’s willing to put up with one of her pranks if it means a chance to spend a few hours with the new kid in town, Pierce Hunter.

But when morning comes, Elise has disappeared without a trace.

Twelve years later, Pierce and his twin brother Jordan are professional paranormal investigators, starring in their own ghost-hunting TV show. When Pierce calls Haven, insisting they return to the supposedly haunted building one last time, Haven reluctantly agrees. He’s nervous about seeing Pierce again, but he’s determined to get some answers. Did they really speak to Cassie’s ghost that night? What happened to Elise? And the biggest mystery of all – how did she know the secret of the well?

The Well will be released on May 22, 2017. 

I ran a cover contest for The Well in March. I received so many gorgeous covers, it was hard to choose. Thank you to everybody who entered. The winning artist was once again Jay Aheer, and her cover is *amazing*. However, I decided (for once) to do things the “right” way and hold off on the cover reveal until the preorder link is up and ready to go. So, when will that be?

The official cover reveal will be April 1st at Joyfully Jay

Until then, why not check out my romantic comedy Damned If You Do, which I just re-released? It’s my fun twist on the Charlie Daniels’ song The Devil Went Down to Georgia, and I promise it’ll put a smile on your face.

Soul acquisition is a drag, but if Abaddon doesn’t catch up on his quota, he could be demoted to scooping poop for the Hounds of Hell. With a deadline hanging over him, he heads for the Bible Belt, looking for the perfect combination of sweetness and challenge.

Seth is a blind musician, part of a traveling tent revival. He’s cute, mystically talented, and quotes the Bible at every turn. His soul is pure enough to fill Abaddon’s quota for months to come, and Abaddon is determined to claim it.

The problem? There’s the revival foreman who watches Abaddon’s every move. Then there’s the mystery of Seth’s many unusual talents. Finally, there’s Abaddon himself. He’s beginning to like Seth a bit too much. Maybe Seth deserves something better than damnation.

But Hell’s agenda isn’t negotiable, and time is running out. If Abaddon doesn’t play his cards right, he could condemn both of them to the worst fate of all—an eternity apart.

Warning: Contains a Bible-quoting twink and an irreverent devil. Also, snakes. Lots and lots of snakes.

Damned If You Do will also be available as an audiobook in the very near future! 

Damned If You Do Available Now (Again)!

Because Samhain Publishing closed their doors, the original version of this story is no longer available. Therefore, I’ve self-published the 2nd edition of Damned If You Do. There is no content change at all from the first edition, so if you bought it then, there’s no need to buy it again now. However, if you haven’t purchased it yet, here’s your chance! This is my comedic twist on the Charlie Daniels’ song, The Devil Went Down to Georgia. It’s sweet and fun and a little bit silly.

Oh. And it totally makes fun of Tom Brady.

Enjoy!

One More What?

Once upon a time, my good friend Ethan Stone sent me a short story to read. It was one he’d trunked a few years prior, and he wanted to know if I thought it could be submitted to a publisher. The story was about an older man and much younger man who lived in the same apartment complex. I thought it had potential, but I also felt it had a couple of problems. We talked about how he could fix it. We debated expanding it into a co-written novella, but in the end, Ethan saw that I was taking it in a new direction and told me to go ahead and do whatever I wanted with it.

One More Soldier-600x900What I ended up doing was moving the story to the Vietnam era and drastically changing the ending. That story became One More Soldier. It was originally published by Silver Publishing back in 2010 (and has since been re-released by me). Although I offered to put Ethan’s name on it as a co-author, he felt I’d changed it enough that it wasn’t really his story anymore (although I’ve always been honest about having stolen it from him). I will forever be grateful to him for graciously letting me hijack his story.

Then, a few months ago, Ethan said, “I think I’ll rewrite that story my own way.” And he did. His version is called One More Time, and it’s available now.

Now, it should be noted, these stories both came from the same seed (which Ethan wrote), but both of them are significantly different than that original story. But don’t be surprised if you find a few things (other than the character’s first names) that seem the same.

ONE MORE TIME

Love, Vegas Style, Book 3

One More Time 1280X1024Small town cop Will Jacoby is comfortable in his life, or so he thinks. When he realizes that Brannon Frost, his neighbor and friend, has grown into a handsome young man, he’s confused by his interest. Things get even more messed up in Will’s head when Brannon kisses him.

A man would know he’s gay before the age of thirty, right?

When Brannon’s father dies, Will steps up and becomes the friend Brannon needs. Soon Will is no longer able to deny his feelings for the young man, even though it could damage his carefully constructed life and career.

This story was formerly part of the multi-author anthology Uniform: A Man in Uniform MM Bundle.

Attention Cover Artists

I need a cover for a book I plan to self-publish in March 2016. I’ve worked with some amazing cover artists over the past few years, but I thought it’d be nice to have several options to choose from. So, to that end, I’ve decided to make a contest out of it and open it up to any and all cover artists who might be interested, whether I’ve worked with you in the past or not.
