"Of Honor and Love" Now Available at ARe and Smashwords

Hey, everyone! I just wanted to pass on a quick note to let you all know that the novella I wrote for the M/M Romance Group's Love is Always Write event, "Of Honor and Love", is now available for FREE download at AllRomance eBooks and Smashwords. Woo hoo!

I'll admit, it wasn't easy for my tech inept self to figure out how to get it upload to both those sites and there were more than a few swear words flying around as I worked on it, but I did it! I was really motivated, though, because I wanted this story to be available to all my readers, not just those who are Goodreads members :-)

To download it at AllRomace eBooks, go here:

I hope all you read it will enjoy it!

A Writing & News Update

Hello ladies and gentlemen! Wow, it's been a really long time since I posted. I'm so incredibly sorry! June's been one busy month for me, both on the personal front and on the writing front. I thought I was way overdue for giving an update on what I've been working on, so here we go.

First, let's talk free stuff! Some of you may recall a while back I had mentioned I wrote a short story for the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads, my very first historical, "Of Honor and Love." I'm pleased to say that story is now not only posted live in the group, but also you can download a file for it on Goodreads. Go here for that: It will also soon be up for free download on AllRomance eBooks, once my "publisher" account is approved. And I figure out how to upload it!

Other news on the writing front, I'm pleased to say the third novel in the Instincts series, LOVING INSTINCTS, is now in edits. We had been shooting for a July release, but as I warned before, this is a very long book (just over 100k at the moment) and we might not hit that. We're still aiming for the end of July, but it could quite possibly be an August release. I hope everyone understands and won't be too upset for the delay!

Keeping on the writing news, I'd like to mention what my current writing project is. I'm currently writing the story for Brad Delfini from the Conquest series. It's going very well, currently sitting at over 30k with more story to tell. I'm still hoping to have it finished by the end of summer with the goal of a late fall/early winter release.

And for non-writing news, but still book related, I'm going to be participating in another blog hop. If you looked over to the right, you'll see a button for the 4th of July Hop. This giveaway will run from July 1st - 4th.  For this one, I'll be offering up a free ebook copy of one of my works, winner's choice of title. Woo hoo! If you click that button, it will take you to the hop's page where you can see all the awesome authors taking part!

In one last piece of author information, I just recently found out that by "liking" author pages and books on, it gives them more visibility on the site. Who knew? I sure didn't. But it's an extremely helpful thing for authors in a place where it's easy to get lost in the crowd! So if you have favorite authors, please do consider liking their pages and books. They'll appreciate it! Should anyone feel inclined toward liking my page there, you can find me here: And I can say I most certainly will appreciate it, too!

Well, I think that about covers it. At least, it's all I can think of at the moment. Thank you again, everyone, for your patience with me disappearing for a while!
