Trapped is live at M/M Goodreads

My addition to the M/M Good reads Don’t Read in the Closet event this year is up at on the group site. It’ll be available in all formats in a few days on the website, soon to come to Amazon.

If you’re a member of the group, you can find Trapped here.

Here is the prompt from the amazing Anna (I really should work on a blurb):

Dear Author,
“That’s me. The one in the hat. Why did I think this weekend away would be such a good idea? Ten of us, all sleeping in one cabin in the middle of winter, freezing our balls off. I must have been crazy, especially as I had to go and wake up [guy on bed] after he drank enough to sink a battleship last night. He was like a man possessed. And now I can’t stop staring at his mouth. What’s wrong with me? I’m not gay, he’s not gay. It’s fucking ridiculous. What am I gonna do?”

Almost anything goes with this prompt. But I would LOVE to see lots of smouldering tension and steamy ‘almost’ moments. Contemporary preferred, no shifters or supernatural please.

Sincerely,
Anna

And here is the lovely cover from the amazing J.K. Hogan.

Research and Chasing Rabbits

It’s strange to me how much can change in a year. I have been in love with this genre for years and years. My love of reading has only grown and evolved into this thing I call writing.

One of my favorite genres is paranormal, but when I began writing, I was crazy afraid of it. World building is scary. Magic and Shifting and the like are intimidating. And research is daunting. But the truth is I only needed someone to push me outside of my box to open my way of thinking. Since then, I’ve co-written two paranormal mystery books (complete with hedgehog and wolf shifters). I’ve begun planning an Urban Fantasy book with one of my all time (fangurl moment) favorite authors/friends. And I picked up a M/M Goodreads prompt which speaks to me in the language of sci-fi.

I was told a long time ago to write what you know. I’m not going to get into that philosophical rambling. My rule now is write what you research. All of those subgenres as well as anything contemporary demand research.

For my sci-fi book I’ve watched countless hours of Star Trek (the movie and television show), Japanimation, and The Tomorrow People (and I’m still disappointed that show is gone). I’ve read all different sorts of craft books on the subject and studied mythology as well as religion. For PB and PBN, I studied animal nature (which, btw, did you know wolves do not see monochromatic but are red-and-green color blind—thank you copyeditor), watched hours and hours of Bitten and Teen Wolf. Piper and I studied the heck out of our setting and the lives, habitat, and oddities of our animals. For the Urban Fantasy… well, you’re gonna have to wait and see.

My favorite research by far came today after a dancing scene came to my head. That’s right, boys and girls, Kenzie studied stripping. Not just any kind of stripping but the Magic Mike style (IRL, Hollywood Men *fans self*). And that leads me to this… the real reason I’m blogging today… Enjoy and until next time… The Try Guys…

Happy First Birthday Son of a Fish!

 

Son of a FishToday I celebrate my first anniversary as a published author. This year has been an adventure that’s for sure. When I began this journey, I can’t say I expected half of the love and excitement I’ve gotten. Casey and Sam were and still are a huge part of my heart. I go back to them every now and then to revisit their story.

I’ve been asked more than once if I plan on continuing their story. Maybe. I have a few ideas floating around in my head, but as they are, Sam and Casey are forever part of my life.

Thank you to all who have read and adored my boys as much as I have. And thank you Dreamspinner for believing in me from the beginning.
