“Five Dares” gets a starred review at Publisher’s Weekly

September 5

As an author who has been all over the board with various publishers and self-pubs, it’s very exciting to see one of my books reviewed in Publisher’s Weekly, much less get a starred review. But “Five Dares” (Riptide Publishing, Oct 2), did just that. I’m extremely happy and grateful for this!  Thanks to Riptide for helping this book get wider exposure.

You can read the review here.

Stay tuned for my traditional desktop post on release day!


Rav Miller looked into the terrified, intelligent eyes of the chocolate Labrador on death row, and knew he’d do anything to save him. When the dog, Sammy, escapes and heads to Mad Creek, Rav follows. Mad Creek. The town had become legendary in Rav’s mind after he’d met that bizarre group last year. Rav dismissed his crazy suspicions back then, but when he arrives in Mad Creek, he knows it’s true. Dog shifters exist, and apparently they all live in the California mountains. It’s enough to blow a bad boy’s mind.

Sammy has something in common with Rav—neither one of them trusts people. After Sammy’s abuse as a dog, he particularly dislikes tough-looking men like Rav. But when Sammy gets a chance to work with rescued dogs at the new Mad Creek shelter, his deep compulsion to help others overcomes his fear. Rav and Sammy bond over saving strays. If they can each find the courage to let someone else in, they might find their way to love.

Sheriff Lance Beaufort doesn’t like humans moving into Mad Creek, especially not the tattooed and defiant Rav. When Rav starts a rescue shelter, the town thinks he’s wonderful! But Lance isn’t fooled. He doesn’t buy Rav’s innocent act for one second. How much does Rav know about the quickened? What is his game? And why did he have to show up now, when Lance and the other town leaders are overwhelmed by all the new quickened pouring in?

Rav knows how to save a life. But can he save an entire town? Can he rescue Mad Creek?

This is an 80,000 word novel, book #4 in the “Howl at the Moon” series. It features a new couple and can be read as a standalone, but we recommend reading the series in order.





Cover Reveal: How to Save a Life (Howl #4)

August 3

Today I’m on Diverse Reader with a cover reveal for “How to Save a Life”, which is the fourth “Howl at the Moon” book. This series features a community of dog shifters in Mad Creek, California and the humans who love them. Each book features a different couple, but there’s a lot of community stuff, so it’s probably best to read them in order.

This book will be out by end of August!

I love humorous paranormals like Molly Harper’s werewolf shifter series. My “Howl at the Moon” series is written in that tongue-in-cheek style.

“How to Save a Life”, featuring the love story of Rav and Sammy, will be out at the end of August. You can see the cover reveal, read the blurb, and enter a giveaway to win any book on my backlist at the link below.



Hosting on Queer Romance Freebies – Giveaways!

July 31

Happy Monday, y’all. I’m hosting this week at the Queer Romance Freebie group. You can join it here.

Today I want to post about a soft spot of mine — folksy historic Western romances. Years ago, I loved reading Maggie Osborne (“Silver Lining” is my favorite) and Pamela Morsi (“Simple Jess”, “Here Comes the Bride”). I love humor in my romances and especially in Westerns, where there is the potential for crazy characters and tongue-in-cheek humor of a folksy sort.

I decided to write something in this vein in m/m romance and the result was “A Prairie Dog’s Love Song” and a sort-of sequel, “The Stolen Suitor”. Both are set in Clyde’s Corner, Montana and they feature two different couples.

Whenever anyone asks me what I think is my most under rated work, I say these two. I think they’re really funny! But maybe I have an odd sense of humor. That Midwest upbringing, I suppose.

For today’s giveaway, I’m offering a free e-copy of both to a winner I’ll pick randomly from the commenters on the Facebook Group here.

You can check the books out at the links below.
A Prairie Dog’s Love Song: https://www.amazon.com/Prairie-Dogs-Love-Song…/…/ref=sr_1_1…

The Stolen Suitor: https://www.amazon.com/Stolen-Suitor-Dreamspu…/…/ref=sr_1_1…

More giveaways will occur this week on the group!

I recently was asked to do an interview with a site called Airship Ambassador, a steampunk site. They had found me via my story, “Caress”, which is a steampunk mm romance that was published in Dreamspinner’s “Steamed Up” anthology and again in Wilde Stories 2014: The Year’s Best Gay Speculative Fiction.
