Hello everyone…today is the day you get to suggest what I should write about next. lol Since I just finished up a historical, we’ll have to take that genre off the list for this one. But any other one is open. Let me know what you’d like to see.
Also, I’ll be chatting with Will Prater and Jeff Adams on Writers Online Network (radio show) about my YA book, I Call Death Dad, plus my other YA books (Upcoming and planned) Please if you get a chance, listen in. If you can’t make it, then I believe it’ll be available online afterwards, so you can catch up. Here’s the link: YAY! YA with T.A. Chase Hopefully I won’t sound foolish. lol
Have a great day. Stay safe and warm.
I forgot I didn’t share the cover to Snap Decision, the second book in the Delarosa Secrets trilogy. Here it is. This one is about D’Marcus “Snap” Jefferson, a DEA agent and Mac’s friend. (Mac is one of the main characters in Borderline, the first Delarosa book) Ken Santos is the other main character and he has a few secrets. One of which he doesn’t even know about until a little later in the book. lol.
Book 3 is titled Cold Truth. I haven’t started it yet. It’s on the list to get started on Feb. 1st, but I’m hoping to finish up the story I’m working on early this week to get to CT sooner. CT is about the eldest Delarosa brother, Victor, and for those of you who have read Borderline when it was out originally, you’ll remember Victor isn’t really a nice guy. Yet like the other two, he has his own secrets and when they’re revealed, I’m hoping you all love him as much as I do…lol
I just signed the contract for Climbing the Savage Mountain, the sequel to Mountains to Climb in Totally Bound’s What’s His Passion line…and it’ll be up for pre-order August 28th. Also I signed a contract for Cead Mile Milte (there are accents to go over some of the letters…lol) It’s a short story for St. Patrick’s Day. It’ll be out at MLR Press on March 13th. Yay!
I’m working on Scarecrows and Devils, which is a crime/suspense/paranormal story for a PAX at Amber Allure. I think you’ll like the characters in this one. Also, Jackie Nacht and I are working on A Bittersweet Dance, the second book in our Mark of the Jersey Devil series.
Hmm…at the moment I think that’s all there is to talk about. I’ll be posting a question tomorrow about what kind of story you’d like to see next on the blog.
Have a great Monday…and for those of you in the Northeast, stay safe and warm.
I’ve had these covers for a while and have just forgotten to share them here. Sorry about that, but here you go.
The first is from the Semper Fidelis anthology which will be out in February from Totally Bound. It features stories about Marines, Navy and Coast Guard soldiers.
This second cover is for my story, Always Ready, when it comes out as a single release. Not sure of the date on that. But I do love this cover. My story features a Coast Guard rescue diver and a Bering Sea crab fisherman. (And I’ll admit to watching way too many episodes of Deadliest Catch…lmao)
And this third cover goes to my Tarot/Fortune PAX story, Deserves to be Adored. This one will be out probably in February at Amber Allure. When I get more info on it, I’ll let you know.
I do believe that’s all I have to share with you at the moment.
I want to thank all of you for reading my books and my blog throughout 2014. I wouldn’t be able to do what I love without your support. There’s going to be just as much fun and excitement in 2015, with some sequels coming out that you’ve been waiting impatiently for. lol
Trailing Air, Book 4 in the Preternatural series (Rover’s story) will be out in the spring. I’ll be writing Edward’s story as well this year. He’ll finally get his own happy ending and I hope you all love that. Though his story will be either the second or third book in a new series I’m writing, but it is a spin-off from the Home series. So you’ll be seeing some favorite characters/couples again. And meeting some new characters as well.
I hope you all had a safe and happy New Year’s.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a WiP excerpt. I thought I’d do one with the newest book I’m working on. I’m really enjoying it…and hopefully you will when you get a chance to read it. I don’t have a release date or anything for it yet. It’s not contracted or anything, but it’s the sequel to Mountains to Climb. So you’ll get to see how Jensen and Toby are doing, now that Jensen has returned and Toby has welcomed him back.
This book is titled Climbing the Savage Mountain (K2 is nicknamed the Savage Mountain and Jensen climbs it in the story).

“Why Everest?” Toby asked. “Whenever I hear people talk about something on their bucket list—or the ultimate dream—a lot of them say climbing Everest. What makes Everest such a goal?”
Jensen scrubbed his hand over his hair as he tried to think about how to explain how he felt whenever he thought about Everest. “I don’t know about other people, though for most of them, Everest might seem like the biggest insurmountable obstacle they can think of. And to be able to say they got to the summit ends up putting them in a rare class of people who have faced a challenge and defeated it.”
Toby nodded. “I guess that makes sense, but why do you want to climb it? I know that it’s only number two on your list. K2 is the one you really want to conquer. Why not focus on that one instead of risking everything on Everest?”
Jensen met Toby’s gaze and said, “If I can summit Everest, I have no doubt that I’ll get to the summit of K2.”
“So Everest is just a litmus test as to your ability to climb big mountains? What happens if you end up getting injured while trying it? Will that convince you that you can’t do it or will it strengthen your resolve to try again?” Toby clenched his hands.
He winced at the pressure Toby was exerting on his fingers. Jensen cupped Toby’s face in his free hand.
“Nothing will happen to me on this trip. I promise.”
Toby jerked away from him then shot to his feet. He started pacing while Jensen watched. “Don’t promise me something like that, Jensen. You’re a good climber. I know that. Hell, Cat and Jigger tell me that all the time. You’re a natural. One of the best they’ve seen in years. I know that means jack shit when you’re up on that God forsaken piece of rock and a storm rolls.”
Jensen opened his mouth then snapped it shut when Toby whirled on him. He saw the fear in Toby’s eyes and he went to him, wrapping his arms around his lover to hold him close. He pressed his mouth to Toby’s ear and whispered, “I promise to never make light of your fears. I’m sorry. I guess I didn’t realize how scared you were about me going.”
“It’s not just Everest, Jensen,” Toby confessed. “It’s every time you walk out that door on a trip. I’m left here, wondering if you’re going to come home. So far you’ve done it, but what if something keeps you from coming back to me?”
As much as he wanted to say that the only way he wouldn’t be coming back to Toby was if he were dead, Jensen knew it wasn’t the right thing to say. It certainly wouldn’t reassure Toby at all.
“I know you’re afraid I’ll decide to keep wandering.” He stepped back to stare down at Toby. “I can make you this vow, Toby, and this one I do have control over. I will always come back to you. I wasn’t strong enough to face you when I ran away before. I didn’t trust in how much you cared for me. We both know I should’ve come to you and tell you about my addictions and my problems.”
“Damn straight you should’ve. How can I help you when I don’t know what’s wrong?” Toby encircled Jensen’s waist, resting his head on Jensen’s chest.
Jensen kissed the top of Toby’s head. “Do you really feel like talking about my trip right now? Why don’t we go for a run then we get back, we can take a shower?”
Tension eased from Toby’s shoulders and Jensen realized it was just a reprieve from the complications of him going away. Yet he didn’t want to talk about it right then. He wanted to spend time with the man he loved and soak up all the good times, so he had something to cling to when he was on the side of Everest, praying to God to keep him safe.
I did mean to get the next installment up today, but real life has ganged up on me. I’ll try to get one up on Friday. If not, I’ll make sure to get two done next week.
I hope you have a great day.
Barefoot Dancing is available at all 3rd party sellers. Also, I’m doing a blog tour for it.

I hope you get a chance to stop by any of those places and check out what I have to say. If you’re interested…lmao.
Have a great Monday, everyone.
I just thought I’d drop you all a line to let you know that Trailing Air is coming along nicely. That makes me happy. Also, you’ll be getting two installments of Angel’s Feet this week, even with the holiday.
I hope everyone is safe and warm today. I’m off to workout then to get writing. Yay!
Sorry. I meant to post this earlier, but got caught up in other things. I thought I’d give you all a glimpse into Rover’s story, Trailing Air. It’s book 4 in the Preternatural series. It needs to be done by Dec. 1st, then it’ll be out early next year. I’m also hoping to put it in print with Love’s Baggage, so that the first 4 books can be in print together.
Trailing Air copyright c. 2014 T.A. Chase
Rover stretched as he rolled over in his bed. He groaned when he saw the time, not liking the fact that he had to get up earlier than he usually did. Especially after sitting up most of the night listening to everyone discuss what Elwin had told them.
Thinking about the dragon caused Rover’s cock to stiffen, and since he was alone with no one to judge him about his attraction, he ran his hand down his chest to wrap his fingers around his dick. He brought up an image of Elwin’s face with those plump lips.
“Christ! I bet he sucks like a Hoover,” he muttered, closing his eyes and pumping his hand up and down.
He created a daydream where Elwin was crouched between his legs, his blue hair spread out, covering Rover’s groin. It would be soft and silky, which would feel amazing against Rover’s skin. Elwin’s mouth would be warm, wet, and tight around his shaft.
After tightening his grip to the point of pain, Rover started thrusting and in his mind, it was almost like fucking Elwin’s mouth. He rubbed his thumb over the crown of his cock, smearing the drops of pre-cum around the flared head. With each swipe and tug, Rover pushed himself closer and closer to the brink.
Finally, with a hard twist and pump, he came, coating his hand and stomach with come. He lay there, trying to catch his breath.
“Well that was impressive,” a drool voice came from the corner of the room.
“What the fuck?” Rover jumped from the bed and dropped into a crouch on the floor facing the direction of the voice. Snarling, he allowed his wolf to take over and he shifted.
Once his vision cleared, he growled and Elwin chuckled. The dragon leaned against the wall, arms crossed over his chest. He wore jeans and a sweater with some kind of pattern on it. Rover couldn’t tell what color anything was as a wolf, but he could smell and, Gods, Elwin’s scent made him want to bury his nose in his crotch and fill his nose with it.
“Now. Now.” Elwin tsked. “I did knock.”
Rover let go of his wolf, allowing it to slink back into the center of his being. Once he was standing on his own two feet again, he propped his fists on his hips and glared at Elwin.
“When did you knock and how long did you wait for an answer?”
Elwin’s appreciative gaze trailed over him and Rover could feel his cock start taking interest again. He stomped over to his dresser where he dug out a pair of sweats to tug on. Then he pulled a T-shirt out. Once he was dressed, he turned to face Elwin, only to find he’d disappeared.
“Where the fuck are you,” he called.
A laugh drifted from downstairs and he jogged down to see Elwin sitting at the island counter in his kitchen. He sniffed, whining slightly as the fragrance of freshly brew coffee and blueberry muffins hit him.
“You made coffee and blueberry muffins?”
Elwin shrugged. “It wasn’t hard to figure out your maker. I picked up the muffins at the bakery in the town. I set them in the oven to warm again since I wasn’t sure when you’d be getting up.”
“So you’ve been in my house for a while?” Rover wasn’t sure how he felt about that, but for some reason, he wasn’t as upset as he probably should’ve been at a stranger—possibly an enemy—invading his territory.
“Long enough to see how you start your days.” Elwin wiggled his eyebrows and leered at Rover, who sighed.
“Seriously? I know you said you were several thousands of years old, but you’re acting like you’re twelve right now.” He could feel his cheeks heat. Thank God, Elwin can’t read minds. I don’t want the guy to know just how attractive I find him.
From the Rubble is available now at Amber Allure. Click here. It’s part of the Heavy Petting Vol. 2 PAX, so is discounted as well. It’s about Keaton Goodwin, who does Search and Rescue with his Rhodesian Ridgeback, Kaiser. He meets Nodin Standing Bear in Bogota, Colombia during a natural disaster.
I’m sorry I’ve been terrible about blogging. Last week, I had to get a ton of guest blogs done for a blog tour for Barefoot Dancing, which is due out in general release at the end of the month. It’s available for early download now.
Also, I’ve started Trailing Air, Rover’s story and book 4 in the Preternaturals series. I want to get it done this week, so I’m working hard on it. I’ll be starting Snap Decision, book 2 in the Delarosa Secrets trilogy, this week as well. Really busy the next couple of weeks, but I’m going to try very hard to get Angel’s Feet installments done and up too.
I hope you all have a great day.
I ended up adding about 1k to From the Rubble during edits yesterday, so I didn’t have time to write today’s installment of Angel. I promise that I will be writing it for tomorrow.
Question: If I were to write Alain’s story in the Rags to Riches series, who else would you like a story about? I’d need to write two more to have them put in print like the others. I do think Alain has a story to tell, but I wasn’t sure what other character people might like to read about. Let me know your choices and I’ll see what I might be able to fit in my schedule for next year.
Hope you all have a great Tuesday. Hugs!
