Character chat and adding a new publisher

November 23, 2018

I have two blog posts up in the last couple of days.

On Love Bytes Reviews I’m interviewing Luke and Mason, of Fair Isn’t Life, about how they first knew each other.

And on Dreamspinner’s own blog, I’m talking about working with a new publisher, and serendipity.

Meet Mason

November 19, 2018

I’m blogging on My Fiction Nook today, with my inspiration picture for Mason in Fair Isn’t Life and an exclusive excerpt in his POV. Mason didn’t make it onto the cover, but that doesn’t mean he takes second seat to Luke. Like, at all. 🙂

Fair Isn’t Life release day

November 16, 2018

Today is release day for Fair Isn’t Life, my Minnesota story in the Dreamspinner States of Love series. I hope that readers will enjoy meeting Luke and Mason, and also that they’ll be interested in seeing a state that I love. This book is both a second chances story for two young men who deserve love in their lives, and a portrait of how some of the changes in our Midwest way of life play out in people’s lives.

Several blogs have been kind enough to help me celebrate this release by hosting me on their pages. Today I’m on two great blogs.

Denise on Two Chicks Obsessed lives here in Minnesota too, and she got together with me to discuss our favorite things about the Minnesota State Fair, which is where Luke and Mason reconnect in my story. …Space Needle, or Giant Slide?

Long and Short Reviews invited me to do one of their specialty “Top 5” posts, to help their readers get to know me. I chose (surprise) top 5 M/M books, although I’d have had an easier time with top 20, or top 50… Come see the books I picked for my list – and comment for a chance to win a free copy of “Fair Isn’t Life” –

I was graciously invited to blog on MM Good Book Reviews about my upcoming Minnesota-based States of Love romance – Fair Isn’t Life – check out the page for an exclusive excerpt that introduces readers to Luke, my Minnesota farm boy. (The book releases Nov 16th.)

Flash fiction to celebrate Boy Meets Boy Reviews’ anniversary

November 2, 2018

In our book community, we owe a lot to our wonderful review bogs, who support and entertain us, and find and review books for us. Boy Meets Boy Reviews is celebrating their 5th anniversary this month with short fiction from many M/M writers, plus a variety of giveaways and posts.

Yesterday, Kim Fielding started things off with a great little flash fiction. Today, I have a very short piece up for my picture prompt (content warning for slavery). There are book giveaways posted. Check it out, and head back throughout the month for more fun –

The rest of The Rebuilding Year series coming in audio

October 28, 2018

I’m excited to say that Gomez Pugh just accepted contracts to do audio books for book 2 and 2.5 of The Rebuilding Year series. If all goes well, we hope to have these out in audio before Christmas. 🙂 I can’t wait to hear his narration.

An introvert goes to GayRomLit
