This is that release day post where I say, “Hey, the book is out.” Excepting this first line, it will also be verbatim the content of a release day newsletter, so if you get that and this feel free to ignore one or the other.
Double Blind, Book Two of the Special Delivery Series, is at an e-retailer near you.
Know when to show your hand…and when to hedge your bets.
Randy Jansen can’t stand to just sit by and watch as a mysterious man throws money away on the roulette wheel, especially since Randy’s got his own bet going as to the reason this guy is making every play like it’s his last day on earth. The man’s dark desperation hits Randy right in the gut. Half of him warns that getting involved is a sucker’s bet, and the other half scrambles for a reason—any reason—to save the man’s soul.
Ethan Ellison has no idea what he’s going to do with himself once his last dollar is gone—until Randy whirls into his life with a heart-stealing smile and a poker player’s gaze that sees too much. Randy draws Ethan into a series of wagers that leads to a scorching kiss by midnight, but he isn’t the only one with an interest in Ethan’s vulnerability. Soon they’re both taking risks that not only play fast and loose with the law, but with the biggest prize of all: their hearts.
Warning: This story contains high-stakes poker, gangsters with a weakness for kittens, foursomes, and kinky consensual sex.
Available from Samhain Publishing and wherever books are sold. This book has been previously published and has been revised from its original release.

You Asked for Swag, You Got Swag. Also: Contest.
Last year at a few different events I gave out T-shirts, mugs, bags, etc, and until I ran out I gave them for online contests. People have asked if they could get their own items without having to wait to win something, so I said why not. I made a Cafe Press store—they’re kind of pricey, so I apologize. I ratcheted down the price as much as they’d allow, and sometimes there are online coupons if you sign up for their newsletter. I put in many random items, but if there’s something you’re wishing I had, let me know. A lot of people have asked for quote mugs—let me know what you’re wanting, and I’ll try to add it.
For Double Blind‘s release, I’m having a swag contest. I’ll give a $25USD gift certificate to Cafe Press to a lucky winner. Here are the rules.
- This contest is void where prohibited by law. Must be 18 to enter. No purchase necessary. Only one entry per person.

The Tour Is Still Going Strong.
