I’m sending out the first advance review copies, and looking forward to finding out what readers think of these two books.

And in just over 2 weeks (eek!) I’ll be flying out, first to North Carolina, and a chance to walk through the setting for the third Tracefinder book that I’m writing. Then to GayRomLit retreat in Portsmouth, Virginia. GayRomLit is always a good time. I’m crossing my fingers I might get copies of Love and Lint Rollers in time to take some along.

Love and Lint Rollers – cover reveal

September 23, 2018

My next book – Love and Lint Rollers – has a wonderful cover thanks to artist Karrie Jax. I hope readers will enjoy this story of two men and many pets. With a bit of luck (fingers crossed) I’ll have it ready to go before GRL in mid-October, although I probably won’t have paper copies in time for the retreat.


Love and Lint Rollers – blurb

Even with six beloved cats at home, Thom Fletcher can’t help opening his heart to a little injured stray he finds at Pride. Luckily, the generosity of the veterinarian who helps him means he doesn’t have to open his wallet. Thom’s budget is stretched pretty thin, between his struggling start-up and medical expenses for his Crohn’s disease, so the free cat care helps a lot. Thom may have fallen for the little feline, but he’s also intrigued by the attractive vet in the bi-pride bracelet.

Dean Edwards went to Pride with his colors on his wrist, hoping to find community after his divorce. Instead, he’s pulled into a cat rescue by an appealing man. Dean likes Thom’s kindness to strays, his blue-gray eyes, his intelligence, and his perspective from decades as an out gay man. Maybe with Thom, Dean will finally feel able to explore his long-neglected attraction to men.

They’re not a perfect match. From Dean’s cat-hating dog to Thom’s chronic health issues and preferences in bed, going from a casual date to something more will be a challenge for both of them.

Putting pets in the mix

September 16, 2018

This weekend I’m blogging on Love Bytes Reviews about how much I love M/M books with pets in the story.

Also, I had a beta suggest that LGBTQ and childless couples may wince at having their pets called their “fur babies” in implication that they are replacements for human children. What do you think? Like this term or hate it?

Rainbow Briefs volume 2 released

August 30, 2018

My second Young Adult short story collection under my YA pen name Kira Harp is now available – Rainbow Briefs volume 2 is free in ebook on Smashwords, and should distribute free to B&N, Kobo and iBooks in the next couple of weeks. It’s .99 on Amazon until they decide to price match.

There is also a paper copy on AZ, and I’ll bring some to GRL in October.


Dragons don’t care what gender you are.
A small town may be a refuge, or a trap.
Some younger brothers really do save the planet.
Three people can be the strongest shape.
There’s nothing quite like a gorgeous girl on a shape-shifting motorcycle.

This second Kira Harp collection brings together LGBTQ teens in 21 stories of adventure, discovery, and romance, in fantasy, paranormal, contemporary, and SciFi settings. Ranging from a few short pages to 12,000 words, each story was inspired by a prompt picture from the YA LGBTQ Books Group on Goodreads.

(Content warnings for abduction, bullying, self harm, substance abuse, suicidal ideation.)

I hope readers enjoy this new collection of stories with teen MCs are who are gay, lesbian, genderfluid, trans, asexual, bi, poly, etc. It was fun revising the drafts from my YA group and polishing things up. The prompt picture descriptions are in the text, (and the actual pictures are in the YA group’s “Tales Told” folder. ) I do love the challenge of writing to a prompt.

Cover reveal: Fair Isn’t Life

August 21, 2018

Check out the cover reveal for Fair Isn’t Life, my forthcoming book from Dreamspinner Press in the “States of Love” series. When I saw Minnesota was left unclaimed, it felt like fate 🙂

The reveal is here: (Plus the chance to win a backlist book.)


Luke Lafontaine survived the past year by not thinking about the father he lost, the dairy farm he couldn’t save from bankruptcy, or his way of life that vanished with the rap of an auctioneer’s hammer. Cleaning up city folks’ trash at the Minnesota State Fair is just another dead-end job. But at the Fair, surrounded by a celebration of farm life, ambitions he’d given up on and buried deep start to revive. And seeing Mason Bell in the parade—gorgeous, gay, out-of-his-league Mason—stirs other buried dreams.

Mason left his hometown for college in Minneapolis without looking back. Student life is fun, classes are great, gay guys are easy to find, but it’s all a bit superficial. He’s at the State Fair parade route with his band when he realizes a scruffy maintenance worker is Luke, his secret high school crush. Luke should be safely home working on his dad’s farm, not picking up litter. Mason wishes he hadn’t fallen out of touch. He’s an optimist, though, and it’s never too late for second chances. Now he just has to convince Luke.

52,000 words
States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.

This book will release November 16th. Preorder is currently available on the Dreamspinner Press page –

When Romance Means Three (or more)

August 15, 2018

Today I’m blogging on Love Bytes Reviews about writing poly relationships in romance, and the idea of opening up to different pictures of what real love looks like.
