I’m thrilled to announce that I just wrapped up the first draft of Terms of Service. This book nearly killed me. I know, I say that every time, but this time was worse. I made it all the way to 56k late last year before trashing the entire thing and starting over. I’d originally planned to release it in February, but that clearly didn’t happen. Finally, the first draft is complete!
Now, that doesn’t mean the book is done. I have a lot of tweaking to do, but that’s fine. I can revise all damn day. But getting to this point — first draft complete, needing only a bit of polish — is a HUGE step for me. I totally want to celebrate.
Terms of Service will probably be about 123,000 words by the time I’m truly done fiddling with it. Although it’s part of the Heretic Doms Club series, it isn’t nearly as dark or gritty as One Man’s Trash was. Terms of Service will be released on June 25th. (Hallelujah!!) It’ll be available in audio right around that time as well. I’ll have a preorder link for the ebook ready very, very soon.
I have a couple of other announcements I’m sort of sitting on. Trying to decide on the right time to share those. I think another week or two. For now… here’s the blurb for Terms of Service. 🙂
Dr. River McKay moved to Denver with his husband, Terrence, hoping to give their failing marriage a new start. A year later, Terrence is gone and River’s left brokenhearted. Now, he’s decided it’s time to get back in the game. A chance encounter at the hospital introduces him to Phil, a strong-willed pharmacist who isn’t impressed by River’s degree.
Phil can’t deny his attraction to River, but dating is out of the question. Phil only does one kind of relationship — domestic servitude, where he gives the orders and his partner obeys. To his surprise, River agrees — not because he likes the idea, but because anything’s better than being alone.
They know the arrangement won’t last. Phil’s set in his ways and incapable of showing affection outside the bedroom. River’s unused to obedience and still in love with his ex. But their time together will change them, making them question everything they thought they knew about control, respect, and love. When the unexpected threatens to tear them apart, they’ll be forced to choose between the comforts of the past and a future they can only find together.
