Fallen – Officially Rereleased!


I haven’t said much about the pains of Silver Publishing’s demise. I still probably won’t. No one’s asked, and I’ve moved on.

I’ve moved on thanks to the wonderful people at Loose Id.

Fallen officially hits the Loose Id electronic shelves today. It was my first baby, and I’m thrilled to have it’s new home with LI. My super-awesome editor, Rory, helped me clean it up and answer some of the questions I’d seen in reviews of the first edition.

Check it out over at Loose Id by clicking HERE.

This tender, innocent story of an angel falling… in love, from grace, however you’d like to call it — still moves me, even after running it through edits with two different publishers.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Cover Reveal: Fallen

We’re about a month away from the rerelease of Fallen. I’m so excited! This is the first novel I published, so I’m extra fond of Mal and Bran. Originally published with the now-dead Silver Publishing, I was heartbroken when I had to take Fallen out of print. Special thanks to the wonderful people at Loose Id for giving this novella a new home!

Man has free will, and guardian angels have an eternal place in the holy host.

When unexpected feelings interfere with Malchediel’s guidance of a mortal being, he must decide if his love for one man is true, or the work of the devil. Charged with the soul of handsome but suicidal Bran Weller, Malchediel faces a second challenge: Bran’s steadfast belief that homosexuality is not wrong despite the Church’s view of his lifestyle.

In the course of his angelic duties, Mal is tempted to turn a blind eye to long-standing rules of guardianship as he falls in love with his charge. Torn between faith in God and belief that every man deserves love, Malchediel must find a way to balance heart and soul or risk a Fall to Hell.

Solo Flight, blurb and cover reveal

Solo Flight

Hawk pulled the trigger too soon. He invited his boyfriend, Jarrod, to live with him, and the man balked. When Hawk decides to show him there are no hurt feelings with a gift basket from Sundae’s, what could go wrong?

Ask and you shall receive. Hawk, the ever-doting boyfriend, delivers the basket in person only to  meet Jarrod’s twink-on-the-side. Hawk finds himself with a broken heart, an unwanted gift basket, and an entire weekend to either mope or move on.

With the help of a sexy book and the wise words of a novelty magnet found in the basket, Hawk begins the journey of healing his heart and learning his lesson. But will Hawk recognize new love when the time comes, or get stuck on his solo flight of self-discovery?

Coming soon from Loose Id. Check out all the Eostre Baskets stories this spring. Cover art by Syneca Featherstone.

Coming soon

It’s official. I have a contract. I have an ISBN number. I have a release date. I can’t wait. I’m so excited. Give me a little time to have the blurb officially edited and review, but I will share soon.

For now, I’ll tell you this —

It’ll be a contemporary M/M romance published by Loose Id as part of their spring collection. There’s a little magic, a lot of introspection, and a silly little magnet that inspires an important change.

More to come!

Happy New Year

2013 was a busy year. I spent a ton of time in doctor’s offices addressing neck and shoulder pain. It’s not all gone, but I’m managing it — some days better than others — and that’s the best I can ask for at this point. I’ve also revamped my diet, removing most grains and sugar-added items from my meals, returned to a steady running plan, and wrestled insomnia down to a moderate annoyance.

Between my literal pain in the neck and working through setting myself up for a potential career path adjustment with my current employer I’ve barely had time to write. Sure, I could get up early to write, but sleep is important. I could forgo football season but… hahaha. Never mind. I think you know how these things go.

So despite all of this, I do have an exciting announcement. In between all these other activities, I have managed to write a story for Loose Id, with an expected release this spring, in time for Ostara (Easter). I don’t have more than that to share today. I’ve yet to name the story, or edit my query blurb, but when these things get addressed, I will share them with you.

My fingers are crossed for a productive 2014. I hope to write more, step up my running program, and start a new role that will carry me through the next few years at the day job.

I hope you all had a wonderful 2013 and are looking forward to exciting activities and goals for this new year. Best wishes to each and every one of you.
