• My Village

    I don’t often post about the technicalities behind writing. I am not a master of my craft, I don’t pretend to know one grammatical rule from another, nor do I have profound, life-changing advice to give aspiring authors. But the one truth I have taken from writing, is that there is very little “self” in self-publishing. It takes a village. I’m writing this on the tail end of a book release. Red Dirt Heart 4 came out last week, and has been a true success. In the first 48 hours of release, it was #1 on Amazon (gay romance) in SIX different countries. At once. That’s a HUGE feat, and…

  • Red Dirt Heart Series Epilogue Spoiler…

    ** SPOILERS AHEAD** If you don’t want spoilers, then don’t read this post, k? But I really need to talk about something… As you may know, the very talented Sara York graciously does my cover art work 🙂  And when I had written the epilogue for my Red Dirt Heart series, I knew it needed its own special cover. I searched the interwebs for the right pictures, sent them to Sara and WHAM! She created a masterpiece. It is my favourite cover from her to date, and with all the beautifulness she’s given me, that’s a pretty big call. I cried when I saw it. Literal tears. It was so…

  • Buy Links for RDH4

    You can pre-order RDH4 on Amazon  HERE You can pre-order RDH4 on ARe  HERE BLURB: Moving from a Texas ranch to an Australian Outback station was a life changing decision for Travis Craig. Though it wasn’t really a decision at all. Something in his bones told him to go, though he had no clue as to why. Until he met Sutton Station’s owner, Charlie. Loving Charlie shouldn’t have been easy. The man was stubborn, and riddled with crippling self-doubt. No, it shouldn’t have been easy at all. Yet somehow, falling in love with Charlie was the easiest thing in the world. Loving him was easy. Living with him, teaching him…

  • Red Dirt Heart 4 excerpt!

    Excerpt ~ This is from Chapter 18 Charlie on a plane for long periods of time was never going to end well. He just couldn’t sit still for that long in such a confined space. He was fine for the first few hours, but then boredom set in, and a bored Charlie is the worst. He started to fidget and fuss. The seat was uncomfortable, then there was nothing worth watching, he didn’t want to read, he wasn’t tired enough to sleep, he wasn’t hungry, he was sick of sitting down, and no, Travis, he didn’t want to walk up and down the aisle looking at people like some sicko…

  • A new year and all that…

      It is a new year already and I should mark this occasion with a post <3  2015 will be a year of change for me. Not all of it great, but all of it moving forward and that’s what I will keep focused on. I don’t do resolutions (I’m far too lazy lol) but I want 2015 to be better. I want to be better. A better person, a better parent, a better writer. I have lots planned this year. I have 8 books penciled onto my calendar (though this may change, depending on real life priorities). So far it includes a two-part vampire novel series, a novella trilogy…
