New Cover…


Here’s the cover for the second book in The Beasor Chronicles, Tramps. I really like these covers and can’t wait to see the last one. 🙂 Tramps comes out in September. But it’ll be up for pre-order soon…and I’ll let everyone know.


Also, my newest young adult short story, Pursuing Hope, is available now at Featherweight Press. It’s a f/f story about a girl looking for a date to her prom. There’s no angst or anything like that. Since it’s my first f/f story, I thought I’d keep it simple…lol.

Here’s the link to it…check it out if you’d like.

I hope everyone is having a great day…and have a marvelous weekend.

Happy Hunk Day

There’s just something about this guy’s eyes and smile that I love. I had to post it. You can find the rest of the series at Beautiful Magazine. They have some awesome eye candy photos, but most of them aren’t safe for work. Just keep that in mind if you visit…lol.

I just got the news yesterday that Tramps, the second in The Beasor Chronicles, has been moved up to be released August 20th. Which means I need to get cracking and finish it up. The reason it’s being moved up is because Total e-Bound is re-releasing The Vanguard in September. Woo-hoo! I’m really excited about the whole thing because starting in July, I’ll have at least one book a month coming out from TeB, and in July, August, and Dec. I’ll have two books each of those months coming out. We’ve done our best to try and alternate new books with re-releases. So you’ll be getting something new from me every other month, plus all your old favorites with new covers.

I also just saw the cover for From Slavery to Freedom, and as soon as I get the okay, I’ll share it with you. I’m pretty sure we’ll be putting Slavery and Out of Light into Darkness together in a print book, which would be great. 🙂

I still have some other older books whose rights I’ve gotten back, and have to work out who they’re going to. As you might have noticed, you can no longer get Fighting Dragons, Ghost of a Chance, and Dreaming of Dragons from Loose-Id. I’m pretty sure I have a new publisher for them, so as soon as I can, I’ll let you know when those will be available again. Also, I still have to see about finding a home for Death or Life and Not Seeing is Believing. The reason those two don’t have a place yet is simply because I haven’t had the time to re-format them to the right template. As soon as I get a moment to do that, I’ll send them in, and let you know about them as well. 😉

I have final edits to do on Pursing Hope and Angel’s Evoultion. Those will be done today, I’m hoping…along with other things I’ve been neglecting. Most of which are forms I have to fill out…lol. I did let you all know Angel is being re-released by MLR Press, right?

Someone asked about Rover’s story, and I’m hoping I can get to it later this year. I have a few other stories I’ve promised first to different publishers, but as soon as those are done, I’ll be getting to his story. 🙂

Well, I think that’s all I have to say at the moment. I hope you all have a great Wednesday.

Happy Hunk Day


Today’s a busy day. I have a galley to look over for my upcoming release, Replacing Memories, at MLR Press. (I have to get the cover and then I’ll show it to you…lol) I also have edits to do on my very first f/f Young Adult story, Pursing Hope, which will be out in May. 🙂 I can’t wait. It’s new territory for me, and I’m nervous about how readers will like it.

Just so you all know, RM is the sequel to Joy of the Season. I wanted to continue Hal and Tavis’ story. I also am planning a third book in the series (so far), which will introduce us to a man from Joey’s past. If you’ve read JotS, you’ll know Joey is the AIDS patient who died, but not before making an impression on Hal and Tavis.

I’m hoping to get some more writing done as well on Tramps. 🙂 It needs to be finished soon, so I can move on to the next book I need to

I hope you all have a marvelous day.


Wow….April is just around the corner. Where did the first three months of this year go? I can’t believe it.

I’ll be doing edits on my Young Adult f/f short story releasing in May from Featherweight Press. Woot! I can’t wait for people to read it. Pursing Hope is a cute story, not much angst at all. 😀

I’ve lost 10 lbs so far since starting my diet/exercise plan in February. Yay! It’s been fun actually. I try to work out every day, and my diet isn’t that hard to follow. Mostly just eating better, and not as much junk. Lots of ice water and no sugar. We’ll see how well I do when I head to Chicago for the Romantic Times convention in a week or so. lol

Well, I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.

Monday is here…


So a new week is here, and I’m trying decide if I want to sit at my desk and write, or curl up in my recliner in the living room with my laptop. Guess it really doesn’t long as I write. 😀

It looks like my two YA stories will be out in May and June. Yay! Pursing Hope, my first f/f YA, will be coming out in May, and The Deepest Cut will be out in June. When I get exact dates, I’ll let everyone know, and also the dates are always subject to change…lol.  I’m at 41k for DC, and it’ll be over 60k when I finish, which is nice. I think it needs to be that long to tell Charlie’s story. He’s got some issues, but he makes it through and gets a boyfriend in the end.

The adult story I’m working on, From Slavery to Freedom, is the sequel to Out of Light into Darkness, and is about Malachai, Andor’s demon bodyguard. I hope you all like it. It’s a little hard in the beginning because Doll, Malachai’s love interest, is in a very bad place. But Malachai, Andor and Sven help save him. I’ll let you know more about it when I get closer to being done with it.

Well, I better get to writing. I hope you have a great day.

Holy February…


I can’t believe January is already gone. Seems like I was just figuring out my New Year’s resolutions. (which I didn’t actually make because I never keep

But looking back over the last month, it was a good one. I finished two stories. To be honest, one doesn’t really count because I wrote most of it the last week of December, and subbed it on the second of January. Pursuing Hope was my first try at a f/f story, and it’s a Young Adult one as well. I sent it off to my editor at Featherweight Publishing, and yesterday, they let me know they wanted it. Yay! It’s not very angsty or anything like that. It’s about a girl looking for a date to prom. She just happens to be a lesbian.

I sent my edits in for Famine, so it’ll be out on the 20th of this month. Also, Bring Him Gold will be out on the 12th. I have two print books coming out this month as well. War and The Longest Stride will be available at some point this month. Woot!

Gypsies went off to my editor at Total e-Bound, and I started working on a short story for them as well. I’ll still be working on it because it’s like halfway done, but I need to start From Slavery to Freedom, the sequel to Out of Light into Darkness today. So for a little while, I’ll be working on three books, until I get the really short story done. 😀

Well, at the end of this month, I’ll also have some big news. Nothing bad, so don’t worry about that. Just a few changes happening. All of it will be good (at least I hope you’ll think so.)

Have a great day, everyone.

Finally Friday….

Hello everyone….the next stop on the Cock & Bull Blog Tour is Marie Sexton’s blog where she has JP Bowie visiting. Here’s the link. Click on it…and check out what JP’s talking about. Don’t forget to comment for the possibility to win prizes…lol.

Writing has been going really well this week. I’m ready to break 10k on Gypsies, which is important…lol. And I’m almost ready to break 20k on The Deepest Cut, my next Young Adult novel. Woot! Both stories need to be at least 50k before I can call them done, and I’m thinking TDC might be closer to 60k, not entirely sure on that yet.

Not sure if I mentioned it or not, but over the week between Christmas Eve and New Year’s, I got the idea for a f/f Young Adult story titled Pursuing Hope. Now this isn’t an angsty story or anything like that. Just a girl trying to find the perfect date for prom, and her perfect date would just happen to be another girl. I think I went for non-angsty because I’ve never written a f/f story before, so I thought I’d try something light and fun instead. It’s with my editor right now, and I’m hoping to hear something good about it, but if they decide not to take it, I’ll figure something else out for it. Will I ever write another f/f? Who knows? It’ll all depend on the plot ideas I get. I’m not saying I won’t do it again. 😀

Okay…well, I have to get to writing. I hope you all have a fabulous Friday…and a wonderful weekend.

The Longest Stride Cover

This is the awesome cover to The Longest Stride, my first release of the new year. 🙂 I think it’s perfect for the book, which comes out January 22nd. It will also go into print some time in Feb.

I’m working on a short YA story titled Pursuing Hope. It’s quite a departure for me because it’s a lesbian story. I got the idea on Christmas Eve, and it hasn’t let me go, so I’ve been working on it every day since. I’m hoping it’ll turn out all right. Like I said, it’s something different for me, but I had to write it. We’ll see if Featherweight will want it when I’m done. If not, I might publish it on my own. Who knows?

The other books are coming along as well. I’m trying to refrain from starting any new books until I get some of the ones already on my schedule done. 🙂 It’s working pretty well, except for the YA story…lol. When I get PH done, I’ll get back into the swing of Gypsies to get that done.

I hope you have an exciting Wednesday.
