What’s up for 2020?

Happy New Year! Being the first day of the New Year, it seems like a good time to catch people up on what’s going on with me and my books, and what you can expect from me in 2020.

NEW

Spare the Rod has finally been released. You can find that here. The audio will be released sometime later this month.

Roped In has been re-released. This book was originally published by Amber, then by Riptide. It’s now been self-published by L.A. Witt. It has not changed from the Riptide edition.

CANCELED

In previous posts, I talked about a new Tucker Springs story. It was actually supposed to be the book where Matt and Jared made a visit to Tucker Springs to visit Bryan, who you met in Meant to Be. Well… I guess it wasn’t meant to be. Multiple issues have led to that book being shit-canned. I’d kind of still like to write that story, but there are a lot of behind-the-scenes issues to deal with, so I’m not sure it will ever happen.

UPCOMING

I’m finishing up a scifi story that I co-wrote with Cari Z. It’ll be called The Lost Ship of the Tucker Rebellion. It’s more of a scifi about two brothers than a romance, but it does have a romantic subplot. We plan to publish that in late March or April of this year. Stay tuned for more details.

In theory, Charlie’s book (No Good Deed, book 4 of the Heretic Doms Club series) will be released this year too. Not making any promises on that. If it happens, it’ll be late in the year.

Also, if my calculations are correct (which they only are about half the time), the contracts with Totally Bound for the Oestend series are up this year, in which case, I’ll be self-publishing those, with audio, possibly with new covers, and possibly with new stories to go with them. We’ll see.

KEEPING UP TO DATE

The absolute best way to stay up-to-date on my books is in my Facebook group. You can find that here. Even though it’s on FB, I promise it is 100% drama free.

That’s everything. As always, thank you for your ongoing support. I hope you have a wonderful year!

Available Now: Roped In

RopedInGraham and his roping partner Jackson have ruled the rodeo scene for ten years running, but lately, Graham’s heart isn’t in the game. He’s tired of the bruises, the cowboy mentality, and the animal rights activists who picket every event. And then there’s Jackson.

Graham and Jackson have been friends since they were boys. But ever since their drunken sexual encounter the year before, things have been awkward. Graham’s accepted that he might be gay, but no matter how attracted he is to other men, he always panics and runs when the clothes start to come off.

Then Graham has a run-in with one of the rodeo protesters, and everything changes. Kaz is young, idealistic, and sexy as hell. And Kaz has an idea for getting Graham past his nerves and into bed.

All they need is a bit of rope.

I’m Not Really a Procrastinator, But… : A guest post by Candice Gilmer

Ever get up in the morning, look at the calendar, and go “OH MY GOD!”?

Because, yeah. Did that last week.

Not because I’m panicked that it’s almost time for the kids to go back to school, and I haven’t gotten them enrolled. Not because I’m writing under a deadline. Nothing normal like that.

Instead, I have a book that released this week.

UnderHisNose72webGot up last week, when I tore off the “June” page of the calendar (We have big desk calendars in the house, with lots of space to write on–no pretty calendars for us!) and went “Holy Crap! Under His Nose releases in like NINE DAYS! OH MY GOD!”

And proceeded to have a full-on panic attack, because I wasn’t sure exactly what I’d gotten done, and what I hadn’t.

I had stuff scheduled.

Yeah. Scheduled.

Didn’t mean I was ready for any of it. And to make it worse? I found an interview–that I’d completed, mind you–that I never sent back!!!

So guess what I got to do all week last week?

Out of the Blackness, by Carter Quinn

I’m so excited to announce that one of my favorite people in the world, Carter Quinn, has a new release out today. It’s a great book, so I hope you’ll check it out.

BLURB:

A childhood of abuse has left Avery so physically and emotionally scarred he believes he shouldn’t be alive. His only sanctuary has been his relationship with his older foster brother Sam. Avery finally lets Sam convince him to start therapy to help overcome his crippling anxiety, but even that can’t prepare him for the upheaval caused by meeting Noah Yates.
 
Noah is everything Avery fears. He’s large and physically powerful—and undeniably capable of destroying Avery’s hard-earned progress. Although Noah seems to have a tender streak when it comes to him, Avery is terrified of being victimized again. But no matter how many times he tries to push him away, Noah never goes far.
 
 Noah wants to save Avery, but can he be the catalyst Avery needs to begin the journey out of the blackness?

Free Stories, New Releases, and Excerpts — Oh My!

I’m attempting to make my blog titles more interesting, since I normally go with such catchy monikers as, “Update.”

How did I do?  😉

2013 is turning out to be a crazy year. The chaos started in February and will continue into July or so. Some of it has been bad (like seeing my father-in-law lose his year-long battle with cancer back in February) (on my 40th birthday, no less). Some of it has been good (like having a bunch of new releases!). I’m not sure how or why everything seems to happen at once, especially since I feel like I haven’t written anything in ages, but I guess that’s how things roll.

Family Man CoverFamily Man came out back in March and seems to have been well-received. As an author — and especially as one who tries not to obsess over reviews — it’s sometimes hard to gauge. Still, I have Heidi Cullinan (my co-author on the book) to tell me when something really great comes up, like receiving a starred review in the Library Journal! We were also selected as Smart Bitches’ Book of the Month for April, which was very exciting.

April saw the release of Flowers for Him, the story I co-wrote with Rowan Speedwell for Total E-Bound’s m/m anthology, Promoted by the Billionaire. The anthology can be purchased immediately from Total E-Bound. It will be available from Amazon and ARe on April 29th. I’ll post a (hot, steamy) excerpt at the end of this post. promotdbythebillionaire_800

Also in April was the gigantic ordeal with my dog. For those who are interested, you can read the story here. The good news is, this story has a happy ending! Jango is home. He’s fine. In fact, he has no idea how close he came to dying. And I am so happy I trusted my instincts and took him to the vet when I did!

Next week is RT. For those who will be there, I look forward to seeing you. Drinks are on me! 😉

My next Tucker Springs book, Never a Hero, comes out on May 13th. I’m so excited about this book! Maybe I’ll post an excerpt from that in a day or two. At any rate, for anybody who’s coming to RT in Kansas City next week, I’ll have a few advance paperback copies at the Giant Book Fair on Saturday, so track me down if you’d like to purchase one. NeverAHero_500x750

That brings me to June, and the release many of my fans have been begging for since August of 2010 — the sequel to Strawberries for Dessert. This one is called Fear, Hope, and Bread Pudding. I don’t have an exact release date or cover art yet, but I’ll share them here just as soon as I do!

Before I move on to that (hot, steamy) excerpt I promised you, I wanted to point out a couple of free stories I have available. Many people are already familiar with The Promise, which features Matt and Jared from Promises. I also have the story I wrote for last year’s Coffee and Porn Birthday Bash. It’s called Chapter Five and the Axe-Wielding Maniac. It’s not a romance, per se, but I think it’s kind of fun. Lastly, I have a vignette I wrote earlier this year called To Feel the Sun. This was supposed to be for an anthology, but it turned out way too short. I could have expanded it but the truth is, I kind of liked it the way it was, so I posted it here for free.

Now, as promised, here’s a fun little bit from Flowers for Him
