• Code Blue Cover and Blurb Reveal!

    The sequel to Code Red is ALMOST HERE!

    I’m so in love with this cover, and I may be a little bit biased because I made it LOL. It took a long time to get it right but I’m so pleased with how it turned out.

    Code Blue is 115,000 words long, and it was so much fun to spend time with the Atrous boys again. Code Blue is the second book in the Atrous Series. The books should be read in order so if you haven’t read Code Red, I’d suggest starting there. It’s told from Steve’s point of view, the way Code Red was told from Roscoe’s.

    I’m excited for everyone to read it and I sincerely hope you love Steve and Jeremy’s story. You can pre-order it now!

    Release day is FEBRUARY 24TH

    BLURB:

    Steve Frost had dreams of wearing the national championship belt in mixed martial arts, maybe even going pro, but instead, finds himself working as a security guard for the rich and famous in LA.

    Quickly earning a reputation for his blunt and precise people management skills, he lands a position on the security team for an up-and-coming boyband, Atrous. Years later, he’s head of security. He knows these boys, and with countless tours, flights, car trips, public events, concerts, he’s closer to one band member in particular.

    Jeremy’s been a pillar for Atrous since day one, but even more so these last few months. Now the face of the band more than ever, he’s also got himself the attention of a delusional stalker-fan.

    When the fame and stress become too much, when Jeremy’s health takes a hit, Steve becomes Jeremy’s lifeline. But as Jeremy knows already, and as Steve is about to learn, not even the brightest star can shine forever.

  • Free Christmas Book and a 2021 recap!

    It’s been a helluva year, right?  It’s gone past in a mix of slow and a blur, and while I’m reluctant to wish time away, I’m really glad this year is done.

    I’ve been terribly slack with updates but the truth is there isn’t much to update. I’m desperately trying to finish my WIP which is already two months behind schedule. At this point, it will not be released until February 🙁

    But it’s not all doom and gloom LOL

    I have a freebie for you!

    A Soldier’s Wish is FREEEEE for five days!!  I loved writing this book. It kinda flew under the radar and I’d love for people to take a chance with it. If you loved Dearest Milton James, you’ll love this. There are letters between these two men when one goes off to war, and a HEA guaranteed!

    From the 20th December to the 24th, A Soldier’s Wish is FREE!  This promotion is run on Amazon time (PST) , not Australia time, so please keep this in mind. *mwah*

    Blurb:

    The year is 1969… Gary Fairchild is proud to be a hippie college student, and he protests the Vietnam War because he believes in love and peace. To him, it isn’t just a counterculture movement—it’s a way of life. When tickets to the Aquarium Exposition—3 Days of Peace & Music, or Woodstock, as it was better known, go on sale, there’s no way he isn’t going.

    Richard Ronsman is a sheltered farm boy who lives in the shadow of his overbearing father. He’s hidden his darkest secret to earn his father’s love, but nothing is ever good enough—not even volunteering for the Vietnam War. And with just a few days left before he’s deployed, he’s invited by a striking hippie to join him at a music festival.

    Three days of music, drugs, rain, mud, and love forged a bond between these two very different men that would shape the rest of their lives. They share dreams and fears, and when Richard is shipped off to war, they share letters and love. For Richard’s first Christmas home, he is gifted a special angel ornament that just might make a soldier’s wish come true.


    I’ve also put together another two Series Collections.

    And a recap of 2021…

    When I was putting these graphics together, I was honestly surprised by just how much

    I’d accomplished this year. I felt like I was paddling like crazy all year and getting nowhere, so it’s good to see some actual progress.

     

     

    I have really appreciated everyone’s words of encouragement and your love and support has really helped, more than you can know.

    I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday and festive season! Please stay safe and healthy and we’ll all be back for an even better 2022!

    Much, much love…

  • Christmas Wish List is OUT NOW!!

    It’s been an absolutely crazy month for me. 

    November has seen two new releases, two new audiobooks, six new translation releases, and four new covers for existing translations. PLUS I’m waaaay behind on a deadline and real life has kicked me in the shins more times than I count.

    But onward we go!

    First up we have Christmas Wish List!!

    BOOK TWO IN THE HARTBRIDGE CHRISTMAS SERIES

    🎄  Can be read as a standalone

    🎄  70,000-words

    🎄  Romance, new beginnings

    🎄  Sweet and sexy

    BLURB

    In need of work and a change of scenery, Aussie ex-pat Jayden Turner agrees to a short-term chef position at a Bed and Breakfast over the Christmas holidays. After all, how hard could it be in a small town in the mountains of Montana? What he finds is a grand old house in a beautiful town, and his new boss is gorgeous, gay, and single.

    After his divorce, Carter “Cass” Campion bought his great-aunt’s rundown country manor in his home town, and he’s determined to get it ready for the busy holiday period. Recently out as gay, he’s been focused solely on his business and hasn’t had time for a man. Not that many gay men come through Hartbridge . . .

    As his new clients arrive, and being away from his two kids, celebrating Christmas is the last thing on Cass’s mind. But his new chef has other ideas. And if there’s one thing on his Christmas Wish List this year, Jayden can make it come true.

    My new release is Dearest Malachi Keogh, a short 13,000-word Christmas story, for just 99c!

    BLURB

    Julian Pollard never believed in love at first sight. That was until he met Malachi Keogh. Well, maybe it wasn’t love at first sight, but it sure was something.

    Julian had forgotten how to live, how to be happy, and Malachi changed all that. Now together for four years, Julian wants to give Malachi a Christmas he’ll never forget.

    The only problem is, Christmas at a mail distribution centre is the busiest time of the year. It just might take the whole team to make it happen.

    Dearest Malachi Keogh is a 13,000-word short story.

  • Christmas News & Tic-Tac-Mistletoe is just 99c!

    BEFORE WE GO BACK TO HARTBRIDGE…

    Have you met Ren and Hamish yet?  If not, now is the best time because you can grab Tic-Tac-Mistletoe for just 99c! Christmas Wish List could technically be read as a stand-alone but we do catch up with Ren and Hamish again so it might be nice to get acquainted!

    It’s also whispersynced so if you buy the ebook, you can also add the audiobook for just a few extra dollars. 

    Blurb:

    Hamish Kenneally is moving from Australia to the US for a fresh start, beginning with Christmas at his sister’s place in Idaho. When a snowstorm diverts his plane to Montana and leaves him stranded two days before Christmas, he hires a car and drives right into a blizzard.

    Ren Brooks has always called Hartbridge, Montana, and his family hardware store, home. After a few failed attempts at love, he’s resigned to being single forever—after all, no guy wants to stay in his sleepy little town for long. And after his dad’s passing earlier in the year, Ren’s Christmas is looking bleak. But when a car runs off the road in front of his property, Ren pulls the driver out and takes him home to get out of the cold.

    With the storm and the holidays leaving Hamish with nowhere else to go, Ren kindly offers a place to stay. Hamish is certain he’s crashed right into a Hallmark Christmas movie, despite more car delays and road closures and the prospect of not seeing his sister for Christmas. And with help from Hamish, Ren is beginning to feel a little Christmas cheer.

    These two unlikely strangers have more in common than they first realise, and after two days of Christmas decorations, cookies, and non-stop conversation, it looks like Christmas might be saved after all.

    Blurb:

    Twenty-five years ago, the hand of fate marked four newborns and sent them to the four corners of the Great Kingdoms. They were schooled and trained as rulers of their lands in preparation for the Golden Eclipse ceremony: a festival to celebrate a thousand years of peace and prosperity since the Great War.

    Crow, ruler of Northlands, a skilled swordsman and expert tactician, is as reclusive and stoic as the mountains that surround him.

    Tancho has spent his life in strict discipline, governing the Westlands with a fair mind and gentle hand. Quiet and unassuming, yet lethal in combat, he is the embodiment of the waters he lives by.

    Yet the same hand of fate unknowingly linked Tancho to Crow in ways they cannot comprehend. Ruled by the stars, the brother sun and the two sister moons above them, and marked by an alchemical sorcery as old as time, their destinies were never their own.

    As the eclipse draws near and the festival begins, word comes of another threat. Invaders from unknown lands bring a war no one was prepared for, and Crow and Tancho must decide on which side of the battle line they stand. In life or death, their destinies will see them joined either way.

    Lacuna is a 92,000-word story of swords and sorcery, action and adventure, and romance.

  • TWO CHRISTMAS BOOKS THIS YEAR? Say what?

    I know I usually shy away from Christmas/holiday books, but this year the characters spoke so I gladly listened. Yay and a ho ho ho! To be honest, I think my brain needed some merry cheer.

    First up…

    We have Dearest Malachi Keogh!  It’s a short continuation of Dearest Milton James, told completely in Julian’s POV, because he wants to make Malachi’s Christmas perfect.

     

    PRE-ORDER HERE

    Blurb:

    Julian Pollard never believed in love at first sight. That was until he met Malachi Keogh. Well, maybe it wasn’t love at first sight, but it sure was something.

    The only problem is, Christmas at a mail distribution centre is the busiest time of the year. It just might take the whole team to make it happen.


     

    If you’re not familiar with the crew at the Dead Letter Office, you can find them in Dearest Milton James. It’s a fun, heartwarming romance that, like the Dead Letter Office, really delivers.  (Ha! I had to pun it up. It was right there.)
