A Spy, a Boxer and a Dancer walk into a bar...

It has been a while since my last post and I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying these first couple weeks of April.

For me, I am just about halfway through NaNoWriMo—National Novel Writing Month. I'm also just about halfway through my current project. I'm not really at that sharing stage, but I will say it's the first true mm romance I have written in a while. There is nothing supernatural going on, and no one is getting murdered. Not yet, anyway. I wouldn't want to rule anything out!

Over the last few months, I've also been reading. My most current read is also the object of my cover lust.

Go ahead, it's right down there, look your fill. We've got time.

But Last Dance of the Sugar Plum by Claire Davis and Al Stewart is not just a gorgeous cover, it's also something you don't find much in mm romance. It's completely unexpected. Completely new.

If you've read Davis and Stewart before, you know the beauty of their language, the uniqueness of their characters. Now imagine Davis and Stewart had a threeway with Guy Ritchie. I'm pretty sure this would be the result.

A romance that's part spy story, part mystery, with humor and madness, and enough twists to leave you reeling. 

Jonathan has suppressed a code deep in his mind, and it's Anton's job to retrieve it, for all their sakes. There's dancing and memories, a locked room and someone is always watching.

Follow the clues, if you can.

Last of the Sugar Plum is now available for purchase on AMAZON and also to read for Kindle Unlimited Subscribers!  

I can't recommend it enough! 

TICK-TOCK-TICK-TOCK-TICK-TOCK

Jonathan is a spy.

Anton is Jonathan’s ‘keeper’.

Jonathan is a spy with a code implanted deep in his subconscious, so deeply he can’t remember—anything at all.

Anton is an interrogator intent on retrieving the code, whatever the cost.

But sometimes they dream of dark tunnels and locked-up rooms, and then they both scream.

TICK-TOCK-TICK-TOCK-TICK-TOCK

Along comes Harry, who seems to have all the answers…but who is he, and which side is he on?

TICK-TOCK-TICK-TOCK-TICK-TOCK

Bang!

For many months, Jonathan and Anton live apart from the world in a hazy, dreamlike state, only interrupted by interrogations and a healthy fear of HQ. One day, they watch a dance performance, and memories begin to unwind… A ticking clock… Betrayal… Missions… Always the scent of oranges. But with clarity, comes a return of powerful emotions…

Last Dance of The Sugar Plum is an exciting spy thriller with as many twists and turns as a maze.


CHOCOLATE BUNNIES!

The road to hell... or Finally! A subscriber freebie!

My author to-do list is overwhelming.

It turns out that there's a lot more to writing than just writing. There are covers to design and websites to keep up-to-date, blogging and a million other little things. Remember, those cute animal memes don't post themselves on Facebook. There's also research. Yes, research! A person doesn't just know how long it takes a body to decompose! You've got to look the stuff up! 

So, you put all that together, add in your real life stuff—jobs, family, after-hours life of crime—and it's hard to cross things off your list.

It becomes far too easy to fall short of your good intentions!

While I've done a few InstaFreebie offers over the last two months, one thing on my to-do list has been to add a free book download, exclusive to my darling mailing list subscribers.

I've finally managed to do just that!

I do plan to change the free book download every few months, but for now, subscribers new and old can receive an eBook copy of Dalton Sikes Finds a Body.

Click HERE to subscribe and you'll get a link to download your free eBook.

If you're already on the list, no worries! You can still use the link above to enter your email and receive your download link without signing up twice.

Finally, something to mark off that damned list! But remember to keep an eye out and I'll let you know when the list members freebie changes! 


HAPPY READING!


Writing, Reading, Filth and Freebies

I am shocked that January is almost over! It's been a busy month and I still have so many things I need to finish. With February looming just a few days away, I'm guessing it's not all going to happen this month.

I have a big project that I'm working on, a completed first draft I've barely touched and a final installment on my MM serial that I am almost finished with. There's even a story I need to write for an upcoming anthology I haven't even thought about yet!

I'm a slow writer, but a faster reader. So, while I haven't finished my own projects, I have some recommendations for you. 

I've also got a FREEBIE of my own to give away! :D


I just started a new book by Hunter Frost released by Dreamspinner Press. I'm in lust with the cover! And if you are in lust with New Orleans, ghost tours and tattooed men, I suggest picking this one up!  

Check it out HERE

Also, make sure to visit Hunter's website and take a look at her other books HERE. I've enjoyed everything I've read from this author, but might I suggest Delivery or Destiny?


Another must read is Lunchtime Nibbles. It's one of my favorite books of 2016!

LUNCHTIME NIBBLES IS ON SALE FOR .99¢ ON AMAZON! Grab it HERE before the sale ends!  

Cheese & Pickles is fun and filthy, but like all Claire Davis and Al Stewart books, it's also real and genuinely good! 

Make sure to check out their website HERE to find out about their other books and upcoming releases! 

And keep an eye our for their new story about a spy and a dancer that is due out in April! Eeek! I can't wait!!!! 


This month I also had the pleasure, PLEASURE, in all caps, of beta reading the next two installments of the Nortown series by Ofelia Gränd

Have you ever done a beta read? It's fun in that you get to read! It's stressful in that you have to try and keep all the elements of the story in mind, make note of all the questions you wished were answered, make sure everyone is wearing (or not wearing) the same clothes from one second, to the next, and that all the little plot elements work for you as a reader. It's not just about letting yourself get swept away and enjoy it. Though, there is a lot of that too. 

So, Once in a Underworld (Book 4) is coming! And, if you are a fan of the series, or just want to hop in now (they all work as standalones), this one is just plain fun! 

What will happen when crime comes to Nortown?! Well, I won't tell you but you can be pretty sure someone's getting laid! :D

Just Words (Book 4.5)? Okay, it's really just some fun filth with our favorite lumberjack and his high-maintenance boyfriend! LOL

You can check out Ofelia's website HERE and make sure to catch up on the Nortown Series!!


And Now For a Winter Freebie!

As for the Freebie I promised at the beginning—I do go on and on don't I?—I'm celebrating finally making myself rewrite the blurb to this book with a giveaway!

Cold Fingers, my paranormal romance is now available for FREE through February 5th on InstaFreebie! 

Blurb

Christopher Minnick is at a bad place in his life. Turning thirty and newly out of the hospital, the last thing he wants to do is attend a birthday dinner, even one thrown in his honor.

When he is introduced to a friend's godson, things just might be starting to look up. 

Or are they?

Victor Polidori seems like the perfect man. He’s clever, attractive and interested. But, even as Christopher finds himself falling in love, there are some things that just don’t add up. And when bodies start disappearing, Christopher knows he has to get to the bottom of it. 

Will Christopher find his happily ever after or is it true what they say? All the good ones are either married or straight. Or they're necrophiliacs.
