Merry Christmas Very Early and Dirty Laundry is Imminent

2 Comments

Yesterday I had the incredible joy of sending my agent a new manuscript to sell, this one a Christmas contemporary which, if I have my way, will be the first in a multi-year series. I had a lot of fun writing it, not the least of which because for once it happened fairly quickly. Dan started reading it in bed and seemed to be having a good time, so things are looking good so far. Something to look forward to, I guess. More on that one as it gets sold, etc.

In the meantime, Dirty Laundry releases in less than a week. Some of you have been waiting for this moment for a year, because it was about this time last year the free short showed up on Coffee and Porn in the Morning. Speaking of that, you’ll want to stop by there on Thursday around 10AM CST for a special surprise. There’s a book tour you can follow during release week (see info below). You can also try your hand at the Goodreads paperback giveaway. Unless you wait too long.

Now I get about ten minutes to sit on my laurels, and then it’s back to work on the book that’s overdue and 3/4 done. Because I have to start on yet another something in the middle of February, and when you hear what that is, you’ll be very happy. But no more on that until Valentine’s Day.

Here’s the usual blather for DL: link, tour, blurb, excerpt, and buy link to Riptide. It’ll be on third party sites (Amazon et al) shortly after release day. I tend to post those my my FB fan page and twitter, so you can watch there or keep hitting refresh or whatever pleases you.

Dirty Laundry

Available January 28, 2013

 (Click here for tour info)

The course of true love doesn’t always run clean. But sometimes getting dirty is half the fun.

Entomology grad student Adam Ellery meets Denver Rogers, a muscle-bound hunk of sexy, when Denver effortlessly dispatches the drunken frat boys harassing Adam at the Tucker Springs laundromat. Thanking him turns into flirting, and then, much to Adam’s delight, hot sex over the laundry table.

Though Denver’s job as a bouncer at a gay bar means he gets his pick of geek-sexy college twinks, he can’t get Adam out of his head. Adam seems to need the same rough play Denver does, and it’s damn hard to say no to such a perfect fit.

Trouble is, Adam isn’t just shy: he has obsessive compulsive disorder and clinical anxiety, conditions which have ruined past relationships. And while Denver might be able to bench-press a pile of grad students, he comes from a history of abuse and is terrified of getting his GED. Neither Denver nor Adam want to face their dirty laundry, but to stay together, they’re going to have to come clean.

 

This title is part of the Tucker Springs universe.

  1. I got to the last chapter today during my lunch break, and I came very close to faking food poisoning so I could leave work early to finish it. LOVED it. Loved Adam and Denver. LOVED. Thank you.
