• Good Morning Monday! Exciting Announcement for RARE2020 Edinburgh!

      I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be attending RARE2020 in Edinburgh next year!   The dates are June 26-27th which THANKFULLY coincides with my kids’ two-week school holidays so we could even consider it (my daughter will be in her final year and these holidays are just before the midyear exams).  I need to plan the whole trip, but at the moment it looks like I’ll be taking my kids because a trip to Europe from Australia is the trip of a lifetime, right? 😉  Well, that and there’s NO way my daughter would let me go without her LOL and my son is suuuuuper excited as well. They’re…

  • Good Morning Monday! Whoa, What a Week!

    Boy, it’s been a crazy week. I’ve been busy, mostly off all social media, and I’ve cranked out serious daily word counts, I’ve done some edits, and I’ve been trying to get some signed books out in the post. But I can say now that my WIP is done! Yay!!  I thought it was done on Saturday at 55K words, but when I was re-reading through the hellamess of a first draft, I realised something was missing. Like an entire chapter or two. LOL We needed to see them bond and grow more. Their emotional connection felt rushed and stupid because I hadn’t shown, on-page, enough of how they were…

  • Good Morning Monday! Cover Reveal Day!

    Happy Easter Monday! And the Easter bunny decided to drop off some treats for you all! Not chocolate, unfortunately, but how about a cover and a blurb for my next release? This gorgeous cover was made by Cover Me Darling and I’m just a teeny tiny little bit (a lot) in love with it! Okay, so here it is…  And the blurb! Blurb: Erik Keston, son of the Keston Real Estate empire, knows what it takes to be successful. Despite his inherent wealth, he holds his own. He works hard, he’s grounded, he’s brilliant. He’s also secretly in love with his best friend.Monroe Wellman lost his parents three years ago…

  • Good Morning Monday! Special Print Editions of Upside Down

    I’m very excited to announce that Upside Down is getting a limited-time only, special edition covers with metallic foil on the cover! Made by Kaligraphic, an Australian company, and I’m just a little bit in love!! I’ve only seen photos so far, and I can NOT wait to see these in real life! But check these beauties out! I don’t have any point of sale information at the moment, only that they will sell through me, not a retailer. I will have more details as I get them. I just wanted to share my excitement with you! It’s only the purple that is metallic, not the whole cover. In other…

  • Good Morning Monday! One Manuscript Ends, Another One Begins…

    I feel like I should be holding up a baby lion to the theme song THE CIIIIIRCLE OF LIFE! This writing cycle never ends. One manuscript ends, one begins, betas start, edits start, proofing starts, one releases while one goes back into edits, and it all ebbs and flows and neverrrrrrrrrr ends. LOL!!! But I really wouldn’t have it any other way. I love what I do. Even on the shittiest days, I still have the best job in the world. 🙂 So yes, I finished my manuscript. I think I wrote something like 21k words in six days! It finished at 81K, and I’ve sent it off to a…

  • Autism Awareness Month! Childhood Memories, Blog Hop, and Giveaways!

    Autism fact: Autism is not a disease. It’s always a great honour for me to take part in RJ Scott’s Autism Awareness Blog Hop. And this year I took a trip down memory lane, waaaaaaay back to my childhood, and my favourite toys that I remember. I was never into anything overtly ‘girly’ (I’m still not LOL) and while my sisters would play dress-ups and cook and sew, I played with trucks, and explored the countryside with my cousins (who were all boys). We lived in a small country town, so I spent every spare minute outside, up trees, in gullies, making tree houses, and would only ever come home…

  • Good Morning Monday! April Already? How is that possible?

    Yes, it’s April. I don’t know how that happened, and I don’t know why the speed of time passing always surprises me. One day, I’m making a schedule for the new year and the next thing I know, the year’s almost half over. Yet here we are. This week has been crazy. I’ve been struggling to get words down in my WIP. It’s just not going as well as I’d hoped. I’m up to 64K words, but it’s nowhere near done. And to be honest, I’m not sure what I’m doing is even right. I kinda feel way out of my depth on this one, but in the words of…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ Upside Down is OUT NOW!!

    Yes, Upside Down has been released, and I’m SO thrilled with the reactions and the feedback I’ve received. Jordan and Hennessy have connected with a lot of readers, and that makes my little ace heart so very happy!!  On release day, Upside Down reached #1 in six countries, #2 in two other countries, and #3 in another! I’ve had private messages and emails from a lot of folks who just wanted to reach out and say thank you, and for a writer that’s an amazing compliment. I’m very honoured to be able to be able to do this, and to know I connect with people through words is pretty freaking…

  • Good Morning Monday! An Upside Down Excerpt!

    It’s almost release day for Upside Down!!  So to celebrate, and to help get you excited, here’s an excerpt!  This is Jordan’s POV – he’s a rambler, and he’s funny 🙂 I can’t wait for you all to meet them, and release day just might coincide with my birthday this week ! I didn’t even notice that the room had cleared out. Merry had pulled up a chair at my side, but Hennessy sat with his knees between mine, holding my hand while I cried. I fucking cried. Through my stupid, traitorous tears, I caught the end of a silent conversation between Merry and him, my Headphones Guy. Hennessy. And…

  • Good Morning Monday! And some info on Upside Down

    I wrote this post for Love Bytes Reviews  and I wanted to share it with you as well, because it’s important to me, and I’m too lazy to type out another post that’s basically the same as this one LOL My next release, Upside Down, is the story of two asexual men who are trying to navigate their way through life in a very sexualised world. Everywhere we look, on TV, in books, movies, music videos, YouTube, Instagram (the list is endless) sex is front and centre. We’re told sex sells. And it does. But not for everyone. The over-sexualised world we live in has been normalised to the point…
